Remember the rumors about American singer Taylor Swift ‘travelling’ in a suitcase that took over social media in the summer of 2017? Well, if you don’t, let’s rewind a little.
Around one and a half years ago, when Joe Alwyn and Taylor Swift’s romance was the talk of the town, the 28-year-old was said to be travelling in a suitcase. A paparazzi photograph of two men very “carefully” carrying a suitcase out of the singer’s apartment into a vehicle sparked the theory.
According to reports, the Delicate singer was inside the suitcase to avoid any media attention. Later, the same suitcase was spotted a few more times by the paparazzi, carried very cautiously.
This theory was too weird to be true but that did not stop it from going viral. Look how Twitterati reacted to it:

Me, a pleb: I pack my clothes in a suitcase when I need to travel.
You, Taylor Swift: I pack myself in a suitcase when I travel.

Back to 2018, former One Direction singer Zayn Malik blurted out some major information about Tay Tay in his recent interview with Vogue UK. Talking about Taylor Swift’s “ability to avoid the paparazzi”, he said, “She was travelling around in a suitcase.”
Zayn Malik, who collaborated with Taylor for the hit song ‘I Don’t Want to Live ‘, wasn’t clear if that statement was literal or metaphorical.
However, if he really meant it then Zayn’s information may have some credibility since the singer is dating Gigi Hadid, who is one of Taylor’s best friends.
