Even this fan can't figure out why the hell Swift is doing this. (via Gawker)

Recently, Taylor Swift gave a fan $90 out of her purse for more or less no reason. Yes, because she was hungry, but not in the "global fight against hunger" sense of the word. This fan just saw Taylor Swift in Central Park and decided to get in a boat and paddle over to the celebrity and interrupt her interview with a Rolling Stone reporter. 

After taking some photos, Taylor Swift heard she was going to Chipotle, decided she should have something nice, and gave her $90 in cold, hard cash. 

Whether she meant "something nice at Chipotle" or "please eat somewhere nicer than Chipotle" is unclear. Photos from this day appeared in news outlets, but they were unaware of the cash transfer at the time, and focused on the part where Swift helped the interrupting fan out of her boat while T-Swif was looking super cute AND WEARING HEEEEEEELS!!!!

One of the people with this lucky fan, however, was Alex Garcia, who posted pictures of the cash transfer that have since been deleted. Fortunately, Gawker's Crosstalk blog retained a screenshot.


Dear Guy in Sunglasses: Please teach me your poker face secrets.

I really hope this isn't a viral marketing campaign, since I just reported this morning on John Oliver's takedown of advertising that disguises itself as real content (or worse, real news). Although I suppose "Chipotle: Celebrities Have No Idea What Our Food Is Like" isn't a very good slogan.
