Taylor Swift on Privacy: ‘I Don’t Walk Around Naked With My Windows Open’
When you're as famous as Taylor Swift, there are a lot of things you can do: top Forbes' list of rich celebrities, lift the spirits of millions of fans, hang out with some of the world's biggest superstars ... just to name a few. However, there are just as many (if not more) luxuries you can't indulge in -- like walking around naked with the windows open.
In her Rolling Stone cover story, Swift admits that not having privacy can get old. After all, she has an entire security team living across the hall from her in her New York City apartment building.
"I can have issues with it," the star says, "But at the end of the day, I can't be ungrateful, because I chose this. But sometimes -- sometimes -- you don't want to have a camera pointed at you."
It's something that's on her mind a lot, and Swift is acutely aware that the world is watching. She's calculated, private and poised, but that's not always enough, so she takes extra precautions to keep what she wants to keep for herself under wraps.
"There's someone whose entire job it is to figure out things that I don't want the world to see," Swift adds. "They look at your career, they look at what you prioritize and they try to figure out what would be the most revealing or hurtful."
"Like, I don't take my clothes off in pictures or anything -- I'm very private about that," she furthers. "So it scares me how valuable it would be to get a video of me changing. It's sad to have to look for cameras in dressing rooms and bathrooms. I don't walk around naked with my windows open, because there's a value on that."
With a No. 1 single from her forthcoming album '1989' and a devoted fan following that spans the world, Swift is in the headlines a lot. But if she can help it, she's going to keep the headlines G-rated ... and keep her curtains closed. As far as the endless rumors? Well, the songstress is going to practice what she preaches and shake it off.
