Taylor Swift Walks Backwards to Avoid Paparazzi [VIDEO]
Taylor Swift is now walking backwards in an attempt to thwart the paparazzi.
As a celebrity, Taylor gets ways more perks than the average person. But it's also true that she has to suffer from some serious downsides, too. Take the paparazzi, for example. Everywhere she goes, she's bound to be photographed. That's something that can get to someone with even the sunniest of dispositions and it looks like Taylor's totally over letting other people make money off her image, so now she's fighting back.
In the video above, you can see Taylor slowly walking backwards with the help of a bodyguard, so as not to show her face to the waiting paparazzi. Once she reaches her car, she turns around quickly and ducks inside. It's a clever move -- if her face isn't in the shots, it's harder to profit from any photos of her.
This isn't the first time a celebrity has outsmarted the paparazzi. Daniel Radcliffe famously wore the same outfit for five months straight during his stint in the Broadway play Equus, rendering the photos taken of him completely useless after the first night. He explained his stance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, saying (quote via CBS), "I would wear the same outfit every single time with different T-shirts underneath but I would wear the same jacket and zip it up so they couldn't see what I was wearing underneath, and the same hat. So they could take photos for six months but it would look like the same day. They became un-publishable, which was hilarious because there's nothing better than seeing the paparazzi get really frustrated."
Maybe Taylor and Daniel should team up and walk around together backwards, in the same clothes, forever.
