Taylor Swift Says Security Team Saves Her From Stalkers

As her songs frequently attest, Taylor Swift‘s love life is frequently full of drama — but as she pointed out in a recent interview, it’s the guys she isn’t dating that she sometimes has to worry about the most.

“I get nervous when I have stalker incidents. I try not to talk too much about it because it scares me,” Swift told the U.K. edition of Cosmopolitan, colorfully summing up her fears by adding, “Sometimes you get a dude who kind of wants to steal you.”

That’s what bodyguards are for, pointed out Swift. “That’s why I’m so grateful I have people looking after me, like Dennis [bodyguard]. Over the past couple of years it’s gotten worse. 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,’ 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.”

The multiplatinum singer/songwriter — who has been accused of exhibiting stalker behavior herself in the not-too-distant past — concluded, “There are a lot of them. I just try to be safe and be conscious of people around me. It’s the same with paparazzi; 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.”
