Taylor Swift Explains Why She Doesn't Show Her Belly Button & the Answer Will Only Pique Your Interest More

Taylor Swift shows off her edgy style on the cover of Lucky magazine’s December/January 2015 issue, out on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 24-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On fairy-tale romances: “Wow, I really used to think that happily ever after was a thing. Not in those simple terms…I think that no matter what you find in terms of happiness and compatibility, there’s always going to be a struggle attached to it. I used to believe that you find the one and that’s it: Nothing’s difficult after that. But then again, I know nothing now. I know legitimately nothing about lasting relationship experiences because I don’t have them.”

On showing her belly button: “I don’t like showing my belly button. When you start showing your belly button then you’re really committing to the midriff thing. I only partially commit to the midriff thing—you’re only seeing lower rib cage. I don’t want people to know if I have one or not. I want that to be a mystery. As far as anyone knows based on my public appearances, they haven’t seen evidence of a belly button. It could be pierced. They have no idea. If I’m going to get some sort of massive tattoo, it’s going to be right next to my belly button because no one’s ever going to see that.”

On fame: “I wanted to make music. I didn’t know that came with this expectation that your whole life is owned by the general public and everything you do is dissected, scrutinized and questioned. Because [people with] a sunny outlook are a lot easier to deal with, be around, befriend and handle than people who are bitter about it. People who are, like, complaining about the life of being a celebrity. It’s a little irritating.”

    She is just ridiculous sometimes. Guess she’ll never wear a tasteful bikini either, which is stupid, cause she has a great figure. This tells me she has an “outtie” belly button and doesn’t like it. What a silly thing to make such drama over. She is getting too eccentric.

    Maria take a breather..she’s joking ,you know giving a silly answer for a silky question ” do you have a belly button , cause we haven’t seen it “

    Because of this story, numerous websites are now posting photos of Taylor Swift wearing various bikinis, to show off her belly button. She has worn bikinis over the years, so her belly button has been seen before. So if Taylor’s intentions were to cause her bikini photos to be posted all over the internet this weekend, then congrats to her. If not, this was a rather epic fail on Taylor’s part. Sorry, Swifty! But FYI, I enjoyed seeing your body in those bikinis today!

    Holy people who are taking her answer at face value should get a sence of humour .
    She is obviously being tongue in- cheek , really think she going to get massive tattoo around her belly button or is serious about the midriff dress thing.

    The word of the day for some to look up. FACETIOUS

    Must say love the white leather jacket on the cover .
