Because there's no better way to spend one's time than staring at Taylor Swift's ass, rumors are flying that Taylor has taken to wearing butt pads. After carefully considering photos of Taylor at the iHeartRadio Awards on Sunday, Twitter users and sites like TMZ are speculating that Taylor added a bit of cushioning to her very sparkly jumpsuit, or whatever that outfit was. This calls for an investigation into Taylor Swift's ass.

Exhibit A: Taylor in May 2015 at the Billboard Awards.

Nothing much to see there.

Exhibit B: Taylor at the 2016 Grammys in February.

There is definitely more curvature going on, though that could be because this glittery jumpsuit (Taylor's 2016 answer to her prom dresses, apparently) is much more flattering on the derriere. 

Exhibit C: Taylor at the 2016 iHeartRadio Awards in April.

Yes, there is absolutely more glute definition. And Taylor's legs are looking more muscular, thus suggesting the cause behind Taylor's butt is time spent in the gym.

Exhibit D: A butt-by-butt comparison.

Between the outfit, Taylor's stance, and her exhibition of more leg muscle, there does not appear much evidence of butt pads. It seems as though Taylor has discovered the wonder known as squats. 

Not everyone is convinced.
