Taylor Swift said she'd have a meltdown if her new album, 1989, leaked and it did! Now what?
1989 is supposed to be released on Monday, but fans got to take a listen a few days early when it leaked on Friday.
Early Friday, she chatted about the possibility of a leak or her album being pirated on British talk show Alan Carr: Chatty Man. She said, "I don't even want to think about it. I don't trust technology. I don't want to talk about leaks. It freaks me out. I will have a meltdown on the show."
According to New York magazine, there is speculation that the leak may have stemmed from Target, because hackers got the 19 songs specially crafted for the Target edition.
In spite of the songs being heard early, Swift is still excited about Monday.
Today she teased the album and track number 10 with the hashtag saying "2 days til 1989."
