What's one way you get out of doing certain things or going to certain places? Well, whatever you do, hopefully it doesn't involve murder.

Anna Mae Blessing of Arizona was "charged with first degree murder, aggravated assault and kidnapping" for shooting and killing her 72-year-old son in his home on Monday, July 2nd.

Blessing moved into the home her son shared with his girlfriend six months prior to his death. According to the girlfriend, a few days before the incident, Blessing and her son had an argument over her going to a nursing home.

The sheriff's office said that Blessing had two pistols in her robe that she hid and shot her son "several times in his bedroom." The girlfriend, who was also in the room, shared that Blessing pointed a gun at her but she managed to hit it out of her hand. However well prepared, Blessing pulled out the other gun that the girlfriend also knocked out of the angry mother's hand. She then sat in a reclining chair "until deputies arrived and arrested her" according to officials.

When deputies arrived, Blessing said that she purchased one of the guns in the 70s and the other was given to her by her husband.

Blessing's bond was set at $500,000 and she attended a court hearing on July 10th.

7 Things Every Real Taylor Swift Fan Knows Will 100 Percent Happen On TS7

4.26

On April 13th, Taylor Swift posted on her Instagram a picture with the caption "4.26"... since then, every post since has had the same caption, and fans have been theorizing ever since.

1. It's going to be very different from "Reputation"

Looking at her current pastel Instagram theme, it is very, very different than dark, mysterious vibe from her "Reputation" days.

2. This will be one of Taylor's happiest albums yet

Taylor has stayed out of the media for the most part since the release of "Reputation", and I believe that she's enjoyed her time, focusing on her music, friends, family, and relationships during this downtime.

3. This album will reflect on her childhood

In 2016, in an interview with Glamour magazine, Taylor revealed that she was bullied in school, and her mom would often take her to T.J.Maxx after school to look at the opal jewelry in order to cheer her up. On April 14th, she posted a picture of jewelry, including opal. Also, one could say that her current Instagram profile picture has an opal tone to it. These could be hints to Taylor tapping into her childhood for her newest album. Oh, and she dressed up as a "childhood hero" for a New Year's Eve party...

4. ...But also focus on moving forward

From her fresh, pastel Instagram theme to the flowers, butterflies, and overall springy vibes, Taylor has an airy, happy vibe that yells fresh, new life. Perhaps the album will also focus on her rising above everything from "Reputation" and all of the new things in her life.

5. It's going to have hidden eggs placed within the lyrics

All Swift fans know that Taylor loves to play games and create puzzles for us to figure out leading up to album releases. Why does the album itself have to be any different? Hopefully TS7 will have hidden gems in it as well...

6. Jack Antonoff and Max Martin will be back

Jack and Max have been with Taylor since "1989," and I don't think they're going anywhere. If they made it through the sound shift between Swift's 5th and 6th albums, they can work with whatever new ideas Taylor comes up with.

7. If the old Taylor is dead, I think TS7 will be when the new Taylor fully emerges

There's been some butterfly emojis and imagery flying around on Taylor's Instagram, and in a way, I think TS7 will be Taylor emerging from her cocoon of sorts into a butterfly. "Reputation" showed that she was capable of change, and this new album will show a more mature version of Taylor.

Chances are all of these are 100% wrong... but hey, it's fun to theorize while we wait for her new single/album to drop on April 26th.
