Taylor Swift Won’t Take Part in Provocative Photo Shoots
While many of her music industry peers strip down and bare all to sell records, Taylor Swift says "no thanks" to that. The 21-year-old pop-country megastar says she's uncomfortable taking off her clothes in photo shoots.
Not that she needs to, of course. Swift recently surpassed 20 million in album sales, and holds the title of most downloaded artist of all time. But even if she weren't already one of the world's most successful females, the singer says she wouldn't be stripping down. "I like wearing pretty dresses and I like trying out new styles, but I don't feel comfortable taking my clothes off," she tells The Telegraph. "I wouldn't wear tiny amounts of clothing in my real life, so I don't think it's necessary to wear that stuff in photo shoots."
Swift adds that as she's gotten older, people have stopped trying to push her to be more provocative, and she's more than comfortable being herself. It may come as a surprise that the composed 'Love Story' hitmaker doesn't drink or raise her voice, either. "I worry I might come off in a way that I can't control," she spills of her alcohol abstinence. As for keeping the peace, the former teen idol admits she keeps it toned down. "If you're yelling, you're the one who's lost control of the conversation."
It's pretty obvious that what Swift is doing works well for her, as she was named Entertainer of the Year, a fan voted category, at this year's ACMs.
