(Newser) – Three years after dropping her Grammy-winning album 1989, speculation over when fans will get a new record from Taylor Swift has reached a fever pitch. According to Pitchfork, the pop star mysteriously blacked out her online presence—all photos and posts on Swift’s Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook accounts have been removed, leaving her profiles completely blank. Meanwhile, visitors to the musician’s official site will find a blank, black screen.

Per CNN, the “purge” arrived three years to the date of the release of her chart-topping hit, Shake It Off. The move also comes ahead of the MTV Video Music Awards (airing August 27), where Swift is rumored to make an appearance and squash her beef with host Katy Perry. (Swift recently made headlines after winning a groping case against a former DJ.)
