You could have had a shot at buying the domain names TaylorSwift.porn and TaylorSwift.adult. But too late. The singer herself has reportedly purchased them so that you can’t.

CNN Money reports that Swift’s management team bought the domain names from Internet Corporation for Assigned Names, which has added .porn., .adult and .sucks to the more generic and prevalent .coms, .nets and .orgs.

Before the new domains go on sale to the public June 1, ICM allowed certain people and companies to buy up some of the more controversial names in order to protect their image.

Stuart Lawley, CEO of ICM Registry, told CNN Money that Microsoft, for instance, has registered Office.porn and Office.adult to keep the trolls at bay.

No word on whether TaylorSwift.sucks is still up for grabs.
