Taylor Swift has done a Cheryl and released a piece of merchandise with a rather unfortunate spelling error.

The US singer recently dropped her colourful new single ‘ME!’, which contains the line: “You’re the only one of you / baby that’s the fun of you.”

Yes, you’ve now got that stuck in your head, too.

However, catchiness aside, those lyrics didn’t quite translate to some of her merchandise… at least in grammatically correct form.

One fan spotted the error on a top, with “you’re” spelt as “your’e”, a mistake made all the more ironic by the fact that the song also contains the line “spelling is fun”. Extra awks.

While many more spotted the mistake too, it appears that the misspelling is only on the cropped version and not the longer version of the top (according to The Mirror).

However, some have speculated that it may actually be deliberate, and those who bought the error-stricken tops were in for a treat from Taylor.

As mentioned, Cheryl’s merchandise made a similar error when it went on sale last year, with one line saying: “Love made me do it (it was’nt my fault).”

At least she didn’t also sing about the importance of immaculate spelling in her song, too.

Meanwhile, Taylor is soon to star in the upcoming Cats movie adaptation, and recently teased how the cast would look on screen amid speculation on how the stage play would translate to the big screen.

“They add digital fur to us,” she explained. “They’re completely human performances. It’s not animated. And it’s not motion capture. It’s somehow this new way that hasn’t been done before.

“And they’re giving us a tail that moves naturally, and ears and whiskers. It was one of the coolest things I’ve seen.”
