Pop star Taylor Swift left a blank space across all her social media accounts Friday, and there’s reason to believe it’s no mistake.

The “Blank Space” singer’s Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Tumblr accounts all went dark at the same time, with her profile pictures removed. Even her official website was replaced with an empty black screen.
