Ah fans. Your poor little hearts would shed a tear hearing this news. Maybe one of your many mails found its way to Taylor Swift’s trash bin, never opened. And you thought you had made a real celebrity connection. So sad.
The letters, many of which were unopened, were found in a south Nashville recycling bin at the weekend by Kylee Francescan when she was disposing of her own rubbish.
She told Nashville’s News 2: ‘I was like, ‘That’s weird. There were like hundreds of letters in there to Taylor Swift and I’m like, “Oh my gosh!”
‘I didn’t know if they were stolen [or] discarded, so I threw them in a box. And I’m like, “Somebody needs to let Taylor know.”‘
Many of the letters, which came from around the globe, were handmade cards covered with pictures, hearts and sparkles.
Francescan said she did not open any of the letters, and decided to contact the media because she believes the singer needed to find out about the discarded letters.
She added: ‘It did bother me [because] I know how much her fans mean to her.’
They were addressed to Taylor Swift Entertainment, a post office located at a shopping centre at 242 West Main Street in Hendersonville.
The owner of the mall told Nashville’s News 2 Investigates she does receive box loads of fan mail at the post office box, and that a member of her staff picks up mail periodically.Nashville’s News 2 took the fanmail to her record label, Big Machine Records on Music Row.
A worker at the company said he was unsure why the letters were in the dumpster
