For the record: Taylor Swift is NOT posing topless anywhere on the Internet. That much is certain.
Over the weekend, however, a site desperate for traffic photoshopped a picture to make it look - to the REALLY untrained eye - as if the singer were propped on her bed, shirt off, smile on her face.
Protective of her reputation, Swift has fired off a letter demanding the site remove the image.
As of this writing, though, it remains live on a URL that bills itself as a "holy Muslim celebrity gossip site" and which has "jihad" in the name. Seriously, it's not even worth linking to. We're not gonna give the owners the pleasure.
Just rest assured, readers, that any headline you see that screams TAYLOR SWIFT TOPLESS is a lie. Thank you.
