26 Things Taylor Swift Did In 2008 That She Would Never, Ever Do Now
It was a big year for blue eyeshadow and ballgowns.
2008 was a great year for Queen Taylor Swift. She released her second album, Fearless, which immediately launched her into the spotlight...
And she received her first-ever Grammy nomination for Best New Artist.
But there are a lot of things she did in 2008 that modern-day Taylor would definitely never, ever do.
2008 Taylor loved to wear blue frosted eyeshadow and what could ~possibly~ be lingerie to red-carpet events.
And said eyeshadow made another appearance at the Grammys, this time paired with a full-on ballgown...
2015 Taylor certainly wouldn't wear a ballgown to perform.
She also wouldn't decide to go onstage in a cutout minidress and a fedora.
Or a hoodie and jeans.
Come on, 2008 Taylor.
2015 Taylor would never perform in the rain. 2015 Taylor performs in showers of glitter.
Because of course she does.
She wouldn't pose like this backstage at Total Request Live, mostly because that show doesn't exist any more.
She would never stand in the background, holding an envelope, while Rihanna took centre stage.
And she wouldn't randomly take off her shoes while presenting at awards ceremonies.
It's highly unlikely that 2015 Taylor would be seen cuddling up to Miley Cyrus...
And she definitely wouldn't be invited to Miley's birthday party.
2015 Taylor doesn't hit the red carpet in dresses that make it look like she's heading off to prom...
2008 Taylor apparently had a real ~thing~ for strappy, metallic heels.
Or dresses that make her look like she's about to quickly nip out of the office to grab lunch.
She no longer attends events in what looks like mermaid chainmail, with a slightly mismatching gold satin clutch.
And she no longer wears dresses with large frills or beaded halter necklines.
2015 Taylor may not be opposed to whipping her hair, but she probably wouldn't do it while hitting an overturned bin with some drumsticks.
She wouldn't invite music video fuckboys onstage, because 2015 is the year of celebrating female friendship and empowerment.
People didn't even say #SquadGoals seven years ago.
And although 2008 Taylor was no stranger to winning awards...
...and she definitely hasn't changed up her red-carpet poses...
2015 Taylor would never ~dream~ of leaving an awards ceremony with only one.
~So much has changed.~ 👸🏼❤️
