Here's Why Taylor Swift Says Her Hands Are in the ‘Permanent Shape of Claw'

Taylor Swift, ‘Fearless’

Taylor Swift is making fans’ dreams come true, even if it’s at the expense of her own hands. On Monday (Sept. 20), the superstar joked that her hands are experiencing some serious damage after making signed CDs available for her Swifties to purchase.

Earlier in the day, official fan account @taylornation13 tweeted that signed CDs of Fearless (Taylor’s Version) were available for a limited time in Swift’s merchandise store online. “Last Friday was a dream but today is a fairytale! Signed #FearlessTaylorsVersion CDs are now available for 72 HOURS, while supplies last! Get yours at store.taylorswift.com,” the account tweeted.

Swift later replied to the fan account and wrote, “It’s true, I signed them all and it’s also true that I may never write the same again, as my hand is now frozen in the permanent shape of a claw. All for you,” along with a kissy face emoji.

Swifties have had a lot of pleasant surprises lately, as the singer unexpectedly released an updated version of her 1989 single “Wildest Dreams”  on Friday, after the song was trending on TikTok. “Hi! Saw you guys got Wildest Dreams trending on TikTok, thought you should have my version,” Swift tweeted last week.

More signed CDs may be in Swift’s future too, as she’s also gearing up to drop Red (Taylor’s Version). “The next album that I’ll be releasing is my version of Red, which will be out on November 19,” Swift tweeted in June. “This will be the first time you hear all 30 songs that were meant to go on Red. And hey, one of them is even ten minutes long.”

Fearless (Taylor’s Version) — part of Swift’s effort to re-record her first six albums to reclaim ownership of her masters — was released April 9 and debuted atop the Billboard 200 and Top Country Albums charts.
