PopeWatch: Get Thee to a Nunnery

Saturday, June 10, AD 2017

 

 

From the only reliable source of Catholic news on the net, Eye of the Tiber:

 

After several public failed relationships and an embarrassing 8-months without a boyfriend, award winning singer-songwriter Taylor Swift announced today via Twitter that she was leaving the music industry to become a nun.

“With some prayer, and lots of thinking about boys, I’ve decided to become a nun,” she  wrote on Twitter.

Swift’s agent Rod Steelman confirmed this morning that she has been accepted into the Monastery of Our Lady of Perpetual Disappointment, a convent exclusively for women who respond to a calling immediately after experiencing a devastating breakup.

“She told me a few months ago that she had discerned entering a convent every time she had ever had a breakup, but that this last breakup  was different,” Steelman told EOTT. “She said that she was thinking about how Jesus seemed like the only man that wouldn’t ever break up with her, and how she would never have to write a song about him like she did other men in her life. That’s when it dawned on her to get herself to the nunnery.”

Swift has won several awards, including  ten Grammy Awards, one Emmy Award, and  21 Billboard Music Awards. Forbes recently named her in their annual 100 Most Powerful Women.

 

Go here to read the comments.  PopeWatch called the Vatican for comment, but was advised that Pope Francis was not taking any questions involving nuns until the twelfth of Never.

  • “She said that she was thinking about how Jesus seemed like the only man that wouldn’t ever break up with her, ”
    Jesus is the only man who would never break up with her. For real. And convents are good places to write songs about The Beloved.
    Hopefully Taylor Swift will take EOTT’s advise.
