Taylor Swift is one of the world’s biggest stars, so it’s no surprise she attracts unwanted attention from fans. Sometimes those fans turn into stalkers, which is why she employs a top-notch security team.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan’s British edition, Taylor says, “I get nervous when I have stalker incidents…Sometimes you get a dude who kind of wants to steal you. That’s why I’m so grateful I have people looking after me.”
Taylor is told when there’s been an attempt of a threat from one of those unstable fans. “My security text me a picture and say, ‘Look out for this dude; he’s driven across the country, he’s off his meds,’ or something like that.” Taylor explains. “No one has ever been successful in getting into my house or anything like that. I have an amazing security team.”
Taylor compares her stalkers with the paparazzi, saying, “It’s something you just have to deal with. It’s the price you pay for getting to do what you love. You can let it take over your life and make you fearful all the time, or you can live your life in spite of it.”
In other Taylor news, it looks like her new beau, Harry Styles of One Direction, is getting some blowback from his band mates about their budding relationship.
According to E! News, Harry flew on Taylor’s private plane from New York to London Friday night following the band’s show at Madison Square Garden. The other band members flew a commercial Virgin airlines flight and were reportedly upset Harry wasn’t staying with the group. Harry and Taylor reportedly left the London airport and went to Harry’s apartment.
Following One Direction’s show at London’s O2 Arena on Saturday, Taylor is said to have ridden the band’s tour bus on the nearly four-hour trip to Manchester to make nice with the band after the private plane incident the night before.
