Piles of Unread Taylor Swift Fan Letters Found in Nashville Dumpster

(Hollywood Reporter) - Taylor Swift, multi-platinum singer-songwriter and heroine to teenage girls across the world, never fails to offer shout outs to her fans, professing her love and gratitude for the people who buy her albums and concert tickets.

It doesn't mean she's willing to read all of their fan letters, though.

WKRN-TV in Nashville reports that a woman found hundreds of unopened fan letters, many covered in glitter and heart stickers, in a dumpster behind a school. She scooped up the letters and brought them to the news network, which contacted Swift's record label.

"Taylor gets thousands of fan letters everyday and they are delivered to her management office. After the letters are opened and read, they are recycled," her spokesperson, Paula Erickson, told the network.

As for how this batch went ignored, Erickson says it was simply an oversight.

"The only explanation for any letters being unopened would be that a small batch of mail that was supposed to be delivered to Taylor was accidentally put with letters headed for the recycling center."

The incident is an unfortunate look into the impersonal inner workings of Swift's machine. She has nearly 25 million Twitter followers, and has dedicated many of her awards to her legions of fans. On her MySpace page, part of her biography reads, "I've loved my fans from the very first day, but they've said things and done things recently that make me feel like they're my friends -- more now than ever before. I'll never go a day without thinking about our memories together."
