Taylor Swift made a huge purchase at a sex shop recently. But it’s not what you think it’s for! Taylor Swift reportedly borrowed over $13,000 of sexy dominatrix gear for her “Bad Blood” music video.
Swift, 25, premiered her new music video at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, and it quickly became one of Vevo’s record-breaking videos. It was the most watched video within a 24-hour span. As of Friday, “Bad Blood” now has over 44 million views.
In the beginning of the music video, Swift wears a flesh-colored latex dress from a L.A. sex shop called The Stockroom. The dress retails for $235 on the store’s website. The sex shop describes the dress as the “perfect symbiosis of fetishwear and classic lingerie.” Selena Gomez also wore a latex blouse that reportedly costs $360. Both Swift and Gomez wore off-the-rack versions of their latex outfits in the video.
The Director of Operations, Shawn Gentry, told the New York Post that Taylor Swift had fun browsing in his sex shop. She didn’t purchase any sex toys or novelty items though. Swift was strictly there for business, not for pleasure. Swift did, however, end up keeping the $5,000 worth of gear and clothing from the shoot. Does she plan to wear it for her new boyfriend Calvin Harris?
It sounds like the couple will be making sweet music together. After making their official couple debut at the Billboard Music Awards, Swift and Harris could be writing a song together. According to several new reports, Swift and Harris are quickly becoming each other’s musical inspiration only after a few months of dating.
An alleged source told OK! Magazine that Taylor and Calvin “are crazy about each other, but are really stimulated by their unique approaches to songwriting. They’re slowly becoming each other’s muses.”
They’re finding it real hard to keep it professional in the recording studio. According to the alleged insider, Swift and Harris often distract on another whenever they work on music together.
“They often end up in fits of laughter, but they’ve come up with some very interesting melodies and lyrics and she wants to record some of them.”
Their relationship appears to be heating up. Another report claims that Swift and Harris often host dinner parties to make their relationship official to all of their friends. During their parties, they take on the role of a married couple as they split their duties evenly.
“Taylor Swift and her new boyfriend Calvin Harris held a very special dinner party at his $15 million Hollywood Hills estate. The invite list was tiny. Handpicked, with only trusted friends at the table. It was a sign of intimacy, and proof that Taylor’s new romance is getting serious. They were really happy together. They were sharing hosting responsibilities, it’s cute!”
It appears that Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are doing well despite their hectic schedules. Swift is busy traveling on her 1989 World Tour, and Harris is set to perform at a few venues, including the Electric Daisy Carnival. What are your thoughts on Taylor’s sexy (and expensive) purchase?
