Taylor Swift turns everything she touches to gold, so it was no surprise that the first concerts of her tour, The Eras Tour, became an absolute success. Not only because of the millionaire income from the sale of tickets -some exceed 600 euros on the track, and that some staunch fans of the singer consider that she is totally worth paying.
At least, to capture moments like the one that is leaving many of her followers speechless, who during her concert at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona (USA), saw how the artist had to deal with static electricity. at a time that many have even described as paranormal.
The singer was performing I Knew you Were Trouble from her album Red (Taylor's version) last Saturday, when without warning some strands of her hair seemed to take on a life of their own and stood on end, presumably from static electricity.
A moment that, as expected, was captured on video and that generated more questions than answers.
The jokes were not long in coming, with some of her followers explaining that it was all because the artist's hair stood on end because she realized "that it was Taylor Swift"; or with others comparing the singer to other great characters with hopelessly static hair, like Cynthia, Angelica's doll in Rugrats or Lovelace, the penguin from Happy Feet.
A hair that owes its peculiarity to static electricity, which is created when the positive and negative charges are not balanced. When an object or person is charged with extra electrons, then it has a negative charge. Opposite charges are always attracted to each other, so positive charges seek negative charges and negative charges seek positive charges. Example: Taylor Swift is surrounded by high voltage electrical elements, as well as materials such as plastic and metal. The longer the contact is, the more electrons move, creating an imbalance of charges between her hair and the rest of the elements around her.
Materials like rubber or plastic gain electrons and become negatively charged; while textile materials or hair are more likely to lose electrons and become positively charged.
The singer managed to conquer her followers in Las Vegas for the second time on Saturday night, even generating "envy" in colleagues like Adele, who is currently also in the city with her permanent tour. "If someone is going to go see Taylor, I'm very jealous. You know I love her," she confessed in the middle of her concert last Thursday.
If The Eras Tour goes on as expected, it threatens to break all kinds of records. It already started with Ticketmaster having to cancel the sale of tickets given the high demand -the pre-sale collapsed the web with the sale of two million in just a few hours-; But her 52 concerts could make her almost 600 million euros richer, which at the age of 33 would double her net worth and establish her as the highest-grossing artist of all time.
