Taylor Swift Explains Why She Showed Off Her Belly Button

Taylor Swift Explains Why She Showed Off Her Belly Button

Taylor Swift is explaining why she finally showed off her belly button in a bikini picture posted to her Instagram account last month.

The 25-year-old singer talked about it during an interview on BBC Radio 1′s Breakfast Show.

“We weren’t going to [Instagram photos]. I have a camera that I really love and we were just taking pictures for fun. We spent this whole trip feeling like, ‘This is amazing. We’re so sly. There’s no paparazzi anywhere.’ And I’m always checking. I’m looking a mile away. It’s been ten years of this,” Taylor said. “I know how to spot a lens. I know how to hear the faint clicking sounds a mile away. There was nothing. I swear.”

“Basically, on the last day [of their vacation] we see a fishing boat a half a mile away,” Taylor adds. “We were like, ‘That’s a little weird. We’re in the middle of the ocean scuba diving.’ My security gets out binoculars and sees that they have a huge long-lens camera. At which point, we go back to the beach and we realize, ‘Okay so they got pictures of us in our bikinis, like I don’t want them to make like $100,000 for stalking us’… So we’re like, ‘Get up on the bow of the boat, we’re taking better bikini shots, so they don’t make as much money on theirs.’”

  • Black750Li

    Being a Pap is not a job. Its basically being a professional scumbag stalker. All they do is harass people. They think they’re above the law.

  • Jenny from the flop

    Are you serious?! Children are starving to death and her belly button is what you choose to write about? My god, the media has no life

  • mafragias

    your statement contradicts itself cause you came in a gossip site not a news site, so what did you really expect to read about?

  • PlayNice

    She is so smug and full of herself.

  • Jenny from the flop

    About celebs doing good work like Angelina goddess-Jolie! Notice how JustJared can’t reach past 5 comments on an article but if it’s about Angelina there’s 5000 comments. Goes to show what really matters. Bye Felicia 💅

  • Penny Dreadful

    Lord, this girl sounds SO SELF-ABSORBED, it’s almost scary.

  • mafragias

    so , you agree that your argument about starving children was false…?!?!?

  • Jenny from the flop

    No Angie saves starving children. Bye Felicia 💅

  • Tom James

    Taylor does look awesome in a bikini. She’s got a hot body on her, that’s for sure.

  • mafragias

    ok, then why do you waste time reading celebrity gossip instead of just googling “angie saves children”?

  • j k

    Yeah well, you still have plenty of options before this site for that.

  • spaceman

    No one cares about this belly button crap.She acts so childish.
    No wonder Harry ran, she set him free, yea right Taylor he ran for

  • Steve

  • james

    Smart move Taylor. Those greedy paps are awful.

  • Jenny from the flop

    Loved your book Prisinor of Azkaban

  • J Stone

    Interesting logic on Talor’s part – the paparazzi MAY have gotten a picture of her belly button so she puts one out there herself. By that logic, if she ever believes someone MAY have gotten a nude shot of her (by hidding a camera in her dressing room, a curtain left open, etc.) she will be doing a spread for Playboy. This is the woman who sent her lawyers after her own fans who had the gall to put their handmade items up for sell if they had something to do her her. It’s clear that it’s fine for her to make money off of others, but god help anyone that dares to try to make some money off of Taylor.

  • wereqryan

    This girl barely has any curves. Its not like showing her belly would cause any arousal.
