All mysteries must meet their ends; all truths must be revealed.

Tumblr Queen Taylor Swift recently made headlines for carrying her cat, Olivia Benson, like an accessory through the streets of New York. While Swift may, in fact, be a Crazy Cat Lady, the truth behind her furry accessory is decidedly not all that weird.

Swift spoke to Access Hollywood and explained the simple truth: Olivia hates being in her cat carrier.

“She freaks out when she’s in there. So I was just like, ‘OK, all right, we’re gonna just do this,'” Swift said. “It was like a ten foot walk from my door to the car! What I thought was funny about those pictures is that, like, the cat is looking straight at the cameras!”
