During the NFL draft, the native Tennessean told Good Morning America's Robin Roberts that she was dropping a news single and video, which premiered at midnight is called "Me!" and is a collaboration with pansexual Panic at the Disco singer Brendon Urie "about embracing your individuality and really owning it," Swift told Roberts.
Rumors that Swift, who is currently dating Joe Alwyn (The Favourite, Boy Erased, Mary Queen of Scots), would come out as queer swirled for months on social media with Twitter users delving into hints like sleuths. The final reveal of the butterfly mural, which Swift commissioned, offered plenty of clues for Swift conspiracy theorists to chew over. As it containted the muted colors of the bisexual flag and was laden with rainbows, some on social media took the mural as proof positive of Swift's queerness.

"I'm writing you to say that I'm so inspired by the work you do, specifically in organizing the recent petition of Tennessee faith leaders standing up against the 'slate of hate' in our state legislature," the music star wrote the group's executive director, Chris Sanders, in a note posted April 8 on the Tennessee Equality Project's Facebook page. "Please convey my heartfelt thanks to them and accept this donation to support the work you and these leaders are doing. I'm so grateful that they're giving all people a place to worship."
