  • The Study of Swiftology

    As requested, a thread for Taylor Swift's luxury planes, lavish Barbie Doll dreamhouses, and sekrit wife/wives, etc.

    Kicking this off with info about her two private planes, as one is wont to do:

    In 2011, she bought a Falcon 900 (rumored $40 million), which she had painted to look like this:

    Taylor is obsessed with certain numbers, which is why there is a 13 near the door, and the tail number includes '89'.

    Taylor Swift is one of the most famous and successful (not to mention young) stars today, and it's safe to say she's enjoying the fruits of her labor. Though country-pop's princess doesn't seem to ever take a day off, she goes out of her way to have fun when she can—with a slew of high-profile…

    On the nose of the jet, you can see the number “13.” This is Swift’s favorite number, and oddly enough, before every show, she draws it on her hand. She has profound reasoning for 13 being her favorite, stating, “I was born on the 13th. I turned 13 on Friday the 13th. My first album went gold in 13 weeks. My first number one song had a 13-second intro,” she said. “Every time I’ve won an award I’ve been seated in either the 13th seat, the 13th row, the 13th section or row M, which is the 13th letter.”
    But perhaps she thought it was too flashy and not stealth enough, so it has been repainted in gray:

    She has used this plane to fly boyfs around a fair amount.

    The jet has 12 seats, which means she has plenty of room for her entourage when she tours—or, simply to scoop up her boy toy du jour. Page Six reported that Swift flew Conor Kennedy on the jet from the Hyannis Port Kennedy family compound to her hometown of Nashville, simply because she “missed him” after not seeing him for merely a week. God forbid he have to take a commercial flight! We feel his pain.

    On December 8, her current boyfriend Harry Styles performed with his band One Direction at London’s Jingle Bell Ball, and he arrived in England on Swift’s jet. They had been spending some time together in New York City, hitting up hotspots like the Crosby Hotel and the Dream Downtown, and when it was time for him to head back home, she insisted it be with her—and not with his bandmates. The rest of the boys were spotted at Heathrow after taking a commercial flight (again, the horror).

    Her first time on a private jet may have been a couple years prior to this purchase thanks to Jake Gyllenhaal. He flew her out to London back in 2010, and in her recent single “I Knew You Were Trouble” she references a bad boy “flying her to places she’d never been.” We can only speculate, but our guess is she got a taste of the mile-high life thanks to the dashing actor.

    And of course . . .

    Probs not Calligraphy Haggis that often though, because he has his OWN private plane. Yes, they were a three plane family while together.

    An F-900's interior generally looks something like this:

    But Taylor's is probs customized a lot. I read somewhere that she had the seats covered in 100% cashmere, but I dunno that sounds kinda itchy and hard to clean?

    She also owns a Falcon 50, which is newer but also smaller. They generally look like:

    But I didn't track down a pic of hers, and found no info on how much she paid for it. She parks both of her jets in her own hangar in Nashville, and uses them like a town car.

    No, this isn't one of Tay's planes, but it is a pic of Taylor in front of the Air Asia plane that was painted in her honor, and I include it because my life's dream is that eventually someone will paint me all over a ginormous plane, why not:

    I do have something from last weekend that fits more planes and gayspriacy, kinda . . her little jet (the F-50) went Nashville -- NYC -- Rhode Island, parked there a couple of days and then went NYC-- Nashville, which suggests she flew her parents and herself to High Watch for the weekend, and then everyone back home again. The reason this made the K'lors happy was that the tail number wasn't logged. So they used that as an example that sometimes her jets don't log their tail numbers on flight plans and THEREFORE Taylor could have gone fly fishing in Colorado (Wyoming? Montana?) when Karlie was doing so a few weeks ago . . . but as non-K'lors pointed out, there were NO F-900s orF-50s logged as going from that hangar in Nashville to where Karlie was vaca-ing, and fuck the reflection in the spoon, y'all are reaching.

    But here's something they AREN'T reaching on . . .

    Here's Tay strolling around NYC yesterday (checking on the lavish renovations of her lavish apartment, actually) . . . followed by one of her bodyguards, as per usz.

    And Karlie, also in NYC on Wednesday . . . followed by the same bodyguard, not as per usz.

    This can only! mean! one! thing! . . . . OMB, KARLIE IS CHEATING ON JOSH WITH ONE OF TAYLOR'S BODYGUARDS.

    (Or that Taylor and Karlie went to a gym together earlier in the day but somehow didn't get fully papped).

    The 'why they didn't get papped in the same frame' theory is that Tay is not super keen to be seen too publicly with Karlie right after Ivankagate, which is possible.

    Also, they both wore stripey clothes yesterday, which means they are MARRIEDS. I realize that it must be so exhausting to pick out your clothes every day based on what secret message you want to send to the only truly faithful fans WHO SEE THROUGH THE HETERO CHARADE but that is, apparently, the life Tay and Kar have chosen.

    Cheers to the HETERO CHARADE!

    I need a private plane, got to get rich first. I wonder if they bodyguards get really bored following Taylor around? I know its their job, but still it has to get hold, following around a girl who makes more money then you can ever imagine having. The K'lors people are hilarious. They must get exhausted having to constantly decipher all the hidden messages.

      I don't have time to make a real post, but just wanted to mention that Tay's big jet went to Burbank last night, landed right as the Emmys were ending, sat overnight, and is flying back to Nashville now. That could mean anything! Her brother is filming a movie somewhere on the west coast, so the plane might have been sent to pick him up. Or it might have been bringing her mom out there to see him.

      Or Taylor might have flown out for a NIGHT OF EPIC HIDDLESWIFTIAN EX-SEX.*

      * not super likely, but a gal can dream

        I realize that NOBODY CURR about Taylor's plane moving hither and thither while the Brangexit is happening, but I was already putting this quick summary together, so . . .

        Sticking Tom's Emmy stuff in here, because of the PLANES.

        First off, Tom looked very pretty Sunday night:

        (Styled by our old pal Ilaria Urbinati, btw).

        This could have been you, Tay! *sob*

        Not that she and Tom would have been presenting together even if they were still dating but you know what I mean so shut up.

        He didn't bring a date or a plus one, just showed up with Hugh and Olivia, his The Night Manager co-stars and did no press on the step and repeat.

        But afterwards, Tom said things were 'friendly' between him and Tay:

        In fact, according to Hiddleston, he and Swift are still friends. "Yes. Yes, we are," he told PEOPLE with a smile when asked if they were amicable at the Emmy Awards on Sunday.


        (although that is what Old Etonian Tom would have said no matter what, he's no fuckboy.)

        Emmys were over by 8:00 and Tom went to four parties, didn't stay super long at any of them (hung out a lot with Gwendoline Christie, who was his co-star in Coriolanus and who has a serious boyfriend) and had wrapped up his Hollywood socializing by 12:30 or so.

        Taylor's plane landed at around 8PM and left the next day at noon. Tumblr was alight with theories!

        1) Hiddleswift Ex-Sex booty call
        2) Very polite discussion between friendly exes to settle lingering issues of some kind
        3) Those Sneaky sneakers never actually split up, duh!
        4) Plane was picking Tom up to bring him to Nashville for a reconciliation
        5) Other family members are using the plane ugh SO BORING

        #4 was definitely not true, because Tom did a screening and Q/A for I Saw The Light a few hours after the plane left. And he left LA to go back to Australia later Monday night. So there is a potential late late Sunday night to Monday noon window where they might have met up, even if it was just for an awkward "Oh, here's the stuff you left in Australia"/"Here's the stuff you left in Rhode Island" kind of exchange. I mean, they presumably broke up over the phone, so doing a hello and goodbye in person over brunch at her house so she can return his only other jacket and he can give her back her cat pillows wouldn't be such a weird thing.

        And interestingly, Taylor has changed the way her planes handle logging flight plans and pinging, so they are becoming much harder to track. She didn't seem to care if fans were tracking her planes before the past week or so, but now she's trying to be more stealth.

        Hmmmm. Why does she only care now?


        • #5
          I vote for she went to LA, have nothing to back that up, but I like that theory. It is odd that Tay now wants to be stealthy.


          • #6
            I would be super interested in Hiddles if he joined The J in another 8-hour wine-y break-up bitchfest.


            • #7
              Ex sex, obviously.


              • #8
                Team Ex-Sex, obvi.

                Also, it feels me with ALL THE RAGE that Calvin has a plane.
                Itís just really honestly so tiring and emotionally draining to have to get upset over reality constantly.


                • #9
                  Taylor hasn't been sighted or spotted or photographed in SEVEN DAYS, yo. She was last seen last Saturday (a music festival in Nashville). Then we had the whole thing with the planes on Emmy night (although still no proof she was on the jet herself, but probably?) and that has been all. The Swifties say this is one of the longest stretches that Tay has gone underground without being seen in like, years.

                  Also totally under the radar this week? Tom hasn't been photographed or sighted since the screening of I Saw The Light on Monday. He wasn't seen or papped leaving LA or arriving in Australia. I'm not implying anything*, and there's no reason to think that he didn't go back to Oz, I'm just stating the facts as they are.

                  *I'm totally implying something but I don't honestly believe it

                  And the K'lors can't claim Taylor is hiding somewhere with Karlie this time, because Karlie is in Europe doing fashion-y things.

                        Your faith is so beautiful, you guys!

                        Well, looks like Taylor never left LA. The plane must have dropped her off Emmy night, and then she stayed in LA for the week. (Maybe?) She was at Liberty Ross's ridiculously star studded birthday party this weekend.


                        Single Taylor Swift Dances With Gwyneth Paltrow at Liberty Ross’ Birthday Party

                        “Gwyneth Paltrow was dancing with Taylor Swift and hanging out with her a lot,” a source tells Us Weekly of the celebration held at Jimmy Iovine and Ross' Malibu home. “They seemed like good friends. Taylor was in an amazing mood and very social.”

                        Swift, 26 — who got a new haircut and color from stylists Gareth Bromell and Tracey Cunningham on Saturday — also chatted with designer Tom Ford for a bit, though she spent much of the night in the photo booth, according to another source. “Taylor was also busting moves with Mary J. [Blige] on the dance floor for awhile.”

                        The star-studded L.A. bash, which also included guests like Mick Jagger, Chris Rock, O’Neal McKnight and his wife Miriam Sternoff, James Corden, Dr. Dre,Cindy Crawford, Danny Devito and more, was high energy throughout the night, with celebrities showing off their moves until 3 in the morning.

                        DJ Cassidy provided the music for the celebration (Q-Tip and LL Cool J made surprise appearances), and guests noshed on sushi from Nobu. Later in the night, fried chicken and waffles were also served, a third insider tells Us.

                        That's an insane guest list. I doubt they were there for Liberty, but more likely there for her new husband Jimmy Iovine, media mogul and founder of Interscope Records and Beats by Dre.

                        It's such a random list! Mick Jagger and Danny Devito! Pharrell and GOOP! James Corden and Dr. Dre! This totally ticks the box for 'extravagant living' I guess.

                        Taylor with her hair stylist:

                        I think I like the new cut and color.

                        Anyhoo, if she didn't leave at noon on Monday, that does mean she and Tom overlapped* in the same city for more hours than originally thought. More than 24 assuming he left on the 11Pm flight to Brisbane, or more if he actually hung around town longer. There was also one lonely little sighting of him in a hotel lobby in Oz yesterday . . . it hasn't been verified and there aren't pics, but it's quite possibly true.

                        *is that what the kids are calling it these days?

                        So the plane movement this week:

                        Big Jet flew to Burbank on Sunday night, landing just as the Emmys were ending. It flew back to Nashville at noon on Monday. Then it flew back to Burbank yesterday (Saturday) landing in the evening, and flew back to Nashville today (Sunday). Some people specced Taylor only flew in for the party last night, but that LA stylist said he cut her hair 'in the morning' . . . which suggests that she was there all week and the plane was just coming so it could take her to Nashville the morning after the party.

                        Little Jet has been sitting in Nashville until yesterday, when it went to Rhode Island. That was probably Taylor's mom. She's been spending time out there, tending to the vegetable garden.

                        Total side note, but this is for the Teen Wolf and The Originals peeps . . . apparently Daniel Sharman has a big crush on Taylor, and that is my new ship if Hiddleswift never manages to get their shit together.

                        She does love a British accent, obvs . . .


                        • #13
                          I find it so amusing that she can be stalked by where her planes go. Her freakin PLANES. (But she's gotta up her game to beat John Travolta who apparently has his plane parked on a runway out the front of his house, as you do)


                          • #14
                            Yesterday, Big Plane flew Burbank to Nashville to NYC to Rhode Island to Nashville.

                            Swifties are theorizing that Taylor went from LA to Nash to pick up the cats, then to NYC where she probs stayed. Then the jet went to Rhode Island to get her parents (mom?) and brought her/them back home to Nashville. (again, this is all just spec).

                            In barbie dream house terms, the plane went from:



                            (okay, technically that's the place she's having renovated, not where she's actually staying in New York)


                            and finally to:

                            (The house she bought for her parents in Nashville).

                            . . . in just 24 hrs.

                            Whew. Those poor pilots.

                            Tom fans, btw, say there was a sighting of Tom on set on Wednesday, which would mean that he did fly back Monday night. I haven't seen the sighting (and it was a friend of a friend works on set kind of thing), but it could totes be true.

                            Again, that doesn't discount the possibility that they met up AT ALL. They still overlapped for over 24 hrs.

                            Plenty of time for you know, brunch. Or whatever.

                            Also, it feels me with ALL THE RAGE that Calvin has a plane.

                            This picture will make you really angry, then.

                              TAYLOR SWIFT & CALVIN HARRIS Impossible Happens ...BITTER EXES ARE FRIENDS AGAIN

                              Satan's gonna need a winter coat -- Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are no longer at war after one of Hollywood's nastiest breakups, and are firmly in the friend zone.

                              Sources close to the former couple tell TMZ ... shortly after Taylor and Tom Hiddlestonbroke up, Taylor and Calvin started texting and put an end to their drama.

                              It's unclear who hit send first, but here's what we do know -- we're told this is NOT a rekindling of the old fire. Also, they have NOT spoken on the phone or seen each other in person. It's strictly text, but it's been enough to erase the resentment that exploded after the June breakup ... and that mess about who wrote "This Is What You Came For."

                              There's been buzz Calvin's new single, "My Way," is about getting over Taylor, but that had nothing to do with their decision to bury the hatchet. Besides, we're told it's really inspired by his old job at a grocery store.

                              Nothing romantic ... which is exactly how both sides describe the renewed friendship.
                              Satan's gonna need a winter coat, Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are no longer at war after one of Hollywood's nastiest breakups, and are firmly in the friend zone.

                              Elsewhere of course it's all about them hooking up again. It made an Australian morning tv show and errrrything, so it must be true? :P
