Taylor opens up about horrifying death threats

Taylor Swift is no stranger to negative press attention, but it seems the star has finally had enough of the media's portrayal of her and fellow female performers. In a revealing interview with Esquire, the 24-year-old singer has revealed that celebrities “have been pushed to the brink of a public meltdown.”

She believes that the negative attention lavished upon her has led to unwanted, and very frightening, male attention. “The sheer number of men who have showed up at my house, showed up at my moms house and threatened to either kill me, kidnap me, or marry me.”

Commenting on fellow singer Beyonce's relationship with the press, outspoken Taylor says: “She's incredibly talented, gorgeous, perfect role model for girls, empowering women all over the world. Yeah, but…let's try pick at her marriage.”

It's seems Taylor's 'crime' in the media's eye is her dating history, but the singer asserts she's no different to any other twenty-something searching for love. “I would date someone, figure out we weren't compatible and then we'd break up. That is my biggest scandal.”

Taylor has no intention of feeling sorry for herself, however. She mischievously adds: “I'm realistic about the fact that millions of people don't have time in their day to maintain a complex profile of who I am. They're busy with their work and their kids and their husband or boyfriend and their friends!”

Good to see that Taylor can make a joke of what must be a tough situation!
