Judging by the amount of emails I received about this, the Internet was stunned yesterday, just stunned, to find out that a famous celebrity like Taylor Swift doesn’t read every piece of handwritten fan mail she’s sent and has an assistant just throw it in the trash. Or at least she used to until her management found out people will find that shit, show it to the local news and the next you thing you know, it’s all over Gawker:

Reporter Andy Cordan drove out to the Hendersonville strip mall that is home to Swift’s P.O. box, where he was told that a rep for the singer periodically stops by to pick up all mail. Swift’s Spokeswoman Paula Erickson explained that Swift’s fan mail is delivered to her management office where it is opened, read, and recycled.
“The only explanation for any letters being unopened would be that a small batch of mail that was supposed to be delivered to Taylor was accidentally put with letters headed for the recycling center.”
After being contacted for the story, Taylor’s people “immediately” sent a messenger to the news studio to picked up the letters. News 2 was told the mail would be “handled appropriately.”
Which means: recycled.

Of course, the most amazing part of this story is that Taylor’s management was smart enough not to go, “What the fuck? Who goes through people’s garbage?” because the answer to that question would be Taylor Swift. Taylor Swift goes through people’s garbage. It’s how she knows you cheated on her. “Coffee grounds and a Twix wrapper?! You sonofabitch…”

  1. Emma Watson's Vagina

    this is nothing new. Gerry Garcia would only look at mail that was colorful greeting cards like cookie monster. and yes someone sent that to him and yes he looked at it.

    actually they check it for stalkers. then destroy it if the fan is not crazy stalker material. or in rare cases a friend of a friend to watch out for it.

  2. BlinkyTheFish

    handled appropriately = her people have just ordered a couple of industrial shredders.

  3. Kim's FUPA

    from the linked article:

    Francescan told Nashville’s News 2 Investigates she did not open any of the letters. She added that she decided to contact News 2 because she thought Swift would want to know about the discarded letters. “It did bother me [because] I know how much her fans mean to her,” she explained.

    All celebrity fans are Lloyd Christmas saying “So you’re telling me there’s a chance…YEAH!”

  4. Ashley

    The letter was written by a Japanese teenager and her grammar is still better than most adult Americans. Yay for ‘Merica!

  5. I’d get into T. Swift’s garbage.

    We are talking about her butt right?

  6. Juch

    Why’d you have to use a picture of my letter to her?

  7. The Brown Streak

    I wrote a fan letter to Fish once and he sent me back a nude photo of Photo Boy. YES! FISH READS MY FAN MAIL!

  8. If you send any kind of fan mail to anyone I consider you a stalker and mentally imbalanced. At no point in my life did I ever consider sending a fan letter to anyone I liked, nor did I ever believe these people actually read them or care.

  9. Frank Burns

    Next you’re going to tell me Justin Beiber didn’t try on the hand-knitted underpants (made from my own body hair) that I sent him!

  10. Can’t. Stop. Laughing. Also, I’m really looking forward to see how her PR people will deal with this…

  11. Taylor Swift is a bitch? Who would’ve thought> First Miley Cyrus and now her? What the fuck is the world coming to?

  12. She’s fast becoming as much of a pain in the ASS as Kim Kardashian. “Look at me, I’m soooo hot.” Kind of cute, eh, but very mediocre in the talent department. “We are never, never, ever, getting back together!” Now that’s deep. And then she says in the Vanity Fair article that she never intended her songs to be weapons. Right.

    C’mon, you’ve got to be kidding. i don’t want to be hard on the girl, but, her body screams awkward.

  14. Welcome to the real world kids, where the rainbow covered pieces of your soul that you send to celebrities get thrown away with yesterday’s used condoms and tampons.

  15. The most amazing part of this is that people still send letters.*

  16. Taylor Swift Grammys
    Commented on this photo:

    Gene Simmons has an entire room full of gifts KISS fans have sent him. Mariah Carrey has a room filled with Hello Kitty gifts from fans. Taylor Swift considers herself too important to even have an assistant open fan mail? Classy.

  17. I’d love to get fan mail!

    This must be why she never sent me an 8 x 10 glossy and a lock of her hair.
