Taylor Swift Wins All The PR Points By Showing Up At A Fan’s Bridal Shower With A Dump Truck Full Of Gifts

Being a celebrity is hard work these days. Not only do you have to act, write, sing, or pose for pictures at a world-class level, you also have to do it while seeming humble and down-to-Earth and like a completely normal person who just happens to make a kabillion dollars a year. Pulling that off can be difficult for any celebrity, and Taylor Swift just upped the fucking ante by showing up at a fan’s bridal shower like, ”Hey y’all, I’m just here being a totally normal person at the shower, hanging with all my BFFs!”

Well played, Swift.

Ohio-dwelling Twitter user Gena Gabrielle is a huge fan of Taylor Swift’s, and says she’s followed the star’s career since the beginning. Gabrielle reportedly met Taylor Swift at a fan event and invited the star to her wedding, but Swift couldn’t make that event and instead promised to come to the bridal shower. But still, nobody really expected her to show up, especially considering the shower was in Ohio and Swift had other places to be.

But Swift did show up, and she did not bring just her own glamorous presence as a gift to everyone. She also brought along a dump truck full of high-end gifts, including a KitchenAid stand mixer and her own cookie recipe.

Swift also brought a Le Creuset French oven and some pots and pans. If you do not cook, let me tell you: That is some seriously chi-chi equipment.


Considering the viral publicity value of Taylor’s surprise appearance at Gena’s Pinterest-worthy shower, we do not think this is going to be a one-off. Much like the first time a celebrity agreed to go to prom with a fan, this seems tailor-made to spark a flurry of bridal shower invitations across the Internet. Next thing you know, Demi Lovato will be at your baby shower, and Sarah Hyland, Emmy Rossum, and Selena Gomez will be trying to hijacking your Bachelorette party for Instagram shares.

We’re all for it. Celebrities bring the best gifts.

      Ahh! I have to give points to Taylor for that — that’s awesome.

        Me too. I may not be a fan of her music at all (too much sugar and cute for me, can you tell I’m a heavy metal fan?) but I have to give her props for this, it was a very sweet thing to do.

      So while Selena was busy getting wasted with the Jenners at Coachella, Taylor is out doing this kind of shit. She is awesome.
