Attention world: It appears as though Hollywood’s sweetheart is going through a bit of a bad ass phase. Yes, Taylor Swift—famed cat lady and baked goods goddess—is rebelling against her cookie cutter image ever so slightly.

While we don’t know exactly when the good girl, gone bad shift happened, we do know that we first saw glimpses of the 25-year-old’s edgier side in her “Bad Blood” music video. The Grammy winner’s alter ego, Catastrophe, was a sword wielding assassin in skintight sex shop getups.

And now? Well, see for yourself. On Tuesday while grabbing a bite to eat with bestie Selena Gomez, the pop star wore her usual short-shorts, a graphic tee…and what’s this? A leather harness!


Also upping the rebel vibes? The singer wore the harness backwards. Because she'll strap up however she pleases, thank you very much!

Immediately fans took to Tumblr trying to understand the shocking—and let's be honest—truly baffling accessory choice.

Luckily, T.Swift didn't let the confusion linger too long. The singer hopped into the conversation on her own page, explaining:

"I think you're ignoring a really important point here…That my harness and I are always ready for a zip line/rock climbing. Ask yourself…Are you ready for extreme adventure should it present itself? HARNESS LIFE 2015"

She's got jokes! See guys, we can all calm down now. She's still the goofy gal we all know and love. The harness was clearly just for funsies.
