Taylor Swift Talks Stalkers with British "Cosmopolitan"

Photo Credit: Sarah BarlowTaylor 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."
