A fair warning to anyone toying with the idea of paying an incredibly large sum of money to move into Taylor Swift's Tribeca apartment building: You may be greeted by screaming fans, hordes of paparazzi, and, from time to time, very creepy, borderline-serial-killer-esque messages written on Post-Its disguised as "love notes."
Apparently a fan from London left notes all over Taylor’s NYC apartment door yesterday. pic.twitter.com/fdANU5M2Ca— Isabelle Swift (@belleswift17) February 18, 2015
If you can manage to make out any of the words, you will quickly realize that "love notes," these are not. Messages include "Keep these for Taylor," "Please she needs to see them," "I'm sorry for this," and "Love Daisy," as well as the simple "Taylor Swift," which somehow manages to be the creepiest of all.
Gothamist even speculated that one semi-legible note reads, "Sometimes I watch you while you are sleeping." Fun!
The problem is apparently so bad, that Orlando Bloom had to move.*
*It is entirely possible that Orlando Bloom's decision to move had nothing to do with Taylor Swift. It is just far more fun to assume this.
