British Woman Often Gets Mobbed By Fans Because She Looks Like Taylor Swift

She definitely can’t shake them off!

Ever wondered how it would feel like if you were a doppelganger of your favorite celebrity? Just ask Laura Cadman because she perfectly knows. This 20-year-old student from Newcastle, England has often been mistaken as Taylor Swift. In fact, she even gets asked by the popstar’s fans for photos.

Actually, Laura herself is a lifelong ‘Swiftie’ since she discovered the singer 10 years ago. In 2015, she finally had the chance to watch her live in concert during the 1989 World Tour. To her surprise, she was mobbed by other fans for photos.

Taylor Swift, is that you? Nope, it’s actually Laura Cadman!

She recalled how one female fan approached her for a photo but was shocked when she discovered she really wasn’t the singer.

Laura recalled:

“She said she hated me because she thought I was Taylor then heard me talk and realized I wasn’t her.

“She said that I shouldn’t do that because it was tricking people, but this confused me because everyone at the concert was dressed up as Tay – it’s what people do at her concerts.

“At the 1989 concert in Manchester, so many people approached me and asked for pictures. I took pictures with a bunch of people and they were so cute.

“It was lovely meeting and chatting to people about Taylor because I actually went to the concert alone and I felt really connected to all of the Swifties at the concert.”

She rocks the same haircut and red lipstick just like her idol.

Aside from being a fan of Taylor Swift’s music, she also loves the singer’s fashion sense.

She, however, is quick to point out that she did not deliberately copy the popstar’s look.

Laura shared:

“I am naturally blonde, reasonably tall and reasonably slim. The rest of my ‘Taylor Swift look’ just consists of classic red lipstick and eyeliner, which I personally think is the most flattering makeup on me.

“If I’m feeling unconfident on that day, I’ll always refer to one of her classic looks or if I’m particularly stuck for a special event, I love looking at her red carpet looks.

“Her style is very timeless and because we have a similar look, I know that whatever suits her will most likely suit me.

“I think she’s really beautiful; it’s a huge compliment. I think we resemble each other a bit. But she’s obviously quite a lot older than me so I definitely think I look a lot younger.”

The Ultimate Icebreaker!

She continued:

“It’s definitely the ultimate icebreaker. People usually mention it initially and it always gets the conversation going.

“It’s also given me the opportunity to work with a few businesses and has allowed me to use my small platform to talk about things that I am passionate about.”

The downside, you ask? Well some people take her photos without asking permission.

“My mum gets bored of cashiers pointing it out because it happens all the time. She says she wants people to see me for me and appreciate that I’m pretty because I’m me, not because I look like Taylor…

“(Some people) often do a double-take and say “woah, I thought you were Taylor”. I get a mixture of reactions; I’ve also had people take photos of me without my permission, which is unnerving.”

Naturally, the ultimate dream is to meet her idol in person.

“I’ve been to her concerts and always keep up with the latest news. I’m a big fan and can’t wait for her next album. I really hope I can meet her someday and tell her how much her music has helped me.”

Well we do hope that happens sooner than later!

Author Proposes a Simple Question That Shuts Down All Anti-Abortion Arguments

You don’t have to be a pro or anti-abortion just to agree that what he asked made total sense.

Whether you agree or not, abortion is still a topic worth debating in our society. Some believe it’s a must, but others say otherwise. Despite the fact that some argue that “life begins at conception,” it still holds true that our modern scientists and lawmakers have yet to determine the exact beginning of life.

But perhaps the biggest issue that remains is that people, at times, are entitled to tell others what to do with their bodies. Or, at least, they feel that doing so is correct and acceptable when it's entirely not.

Whenever pro-lifers discuss the horrific aftermath of abortion, the other side can’t help but get involved. And this continues to cycle as each day passes by – there seems to be no end to it. Interestingly, an author by the name of Patrick S. Tomlinson (known for The Ark Trilogy) is raising argument all over Twitter. In just a couple of tweets, he has managed to propose a simple yet thought-provoking question that will leave any pro-lifer scrambling – and they’ve yet to find an acceptable, coherent answer....

Meet the Cosplayer Who Can Remarkably Transform Herself Into Anyone

As a gamer, I can’t help but get fascinated with her video game cosplays!

Cosplaying has indeed become a huge thing these days. It’s being celebrated in numerous conventions or expos across the world, with the goal of featuring cosplayers from all walks of life. However, it can’t be denied that not everyone can look as great and identical as the characters he/she is portraying.

Well Alyson Tabbitha is among the few cosplayers out there who can remarkably transform herself into any character.

Transgender Woman Stored Her Sperm So She Can Father Her Own Children Someday

“I think it is incredible to know I can still have a baby that is half my DNA.”

For most transgenders, having the body and gender they want is more than enough, the pinnacle of their desires. But for Lea Membrey, this is not the end of it. The 20-year old from Auckland, New Zealand went to a sperm bank three times to store her own (this was done before she transitioned) so that she can father her own child when it becomes possible to have biological children of her own!

Lea started transitioning in July 2015 after feeling "disconnected" from her original male body. She has felt like that ever since she was a boy. She has been bullied and abused during her school years for being gay, a label that she's not really comfortable with.

It was when she met other transgender women that she became serious with transitioning.
