As anyone who's listened to Taylor Swift's "Welcome to New York" knows, the former breakup balladeer is rocking a more upbeat, poppy sound these days, but that doesn't mean all is bright and sunny in Swifty Land.
Taylor sat down for an interview with Esquire recently and she unexpectedly opened up about the dark (and occasionally scary) side of having millions of adoring fans.
"I fought the idea of having security for a very long time, because I really value normalcy," Swift says. "I like being able to take a drive by myself. Haven't done that in six years."
"They have to be in a car behind me. Because just the sheer number of men we have in a file who have showed at my house, showed up at my mom's house, threatened to either kill me, kidnap me, or marry me."
