Ed Sheeran on Taylor Swift
Ed Sheeran is one of the close friends of the artist. While talking to a media outlet, he ruled out the possibility that the artist would be releasing any new music album. Taylor Swift has got two very successful albums released in the past. The album Red got two times platinum in Britain. The album 1989 got three times platinum. For an album to reach platinum status in the UK, it has to have 300,000 copies sold.
Theories Behind Her Social Media Stunt
The first theory says that the artist is trying to gain more attention from the fans. So, whatever she did is just a publicity stunt. She wants to grab the attention of her fans at the time of the release of a new album. Therefore, when and if she releases an album, it will make her an instant hit.
The second theory seems to be less plausible. According to this theory, hackers somehow got hold of the accounts. Well, it is not easy to hack a celebrity and then simultaneously doing it for all the accounts. Even if the hackers did manage to sneak in, there would have been some effort to restore the content. It remains to be seen if Taylor Swift herself decided to ditch the social media for her next big thing or is it some hacker messing things up for her.
