Taylor Swift Opens Up About Stalker Incidents

Stalking is a real issue in today’s world. It is even more evident among celebrities. Mentally unstable stalkers have been posing a serious threat to Superstar Taylor Swift. The 22-year-old is uneasy speaking on the subject and you can read all about it in an interview for Cosmopolitan UK‘s January issue. Taylor tells the magazine this about being afraid of stalkers. “I get nervous when I have stalker incidents,” she admits. “I try not to talk too much about it because it scares me. 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 reveals her security team has stepped it up recently, notifying the singer of specific dangerous individuals to look out for in the crowds. “Over the past couple of years it’s got worse,” she says. “I get told if there’s been an attempt or a threat. My security text me a picture and say, ‘Look out for this dude; he’s driven across the country, he’s off his meds [medication],’ or something like that. No one has ever been successful in getting into my house or anything like that. I have an amazing security team.”

Still, Taylor is determined to not live her life in fear. “There are a lot of them [stalkers]. I just try to be safe and be conscious of people around me … 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.”
