Taylor Swift Hike Backwards Paparazzi Photos

Taylor Swift was photographed walking backwards on a hike in Los Angeles, and there’s a very simple reason why. Blame the paparazzi. See the photos of Taylor Swift walking backwards.

After the pictures emerged and circulated on social media, many questioned what Swift was doing. Was the superstar being silly? Or perhaps trying out a new workout? A fan even posted one of the photos on Tumblr, writing, “Taylor wtf is happening here im confused.” Someone else chimed in, saying, “It’s like she’s doing that test that police officers do to see if you’re drunk or not.” Included was an amusing gif of Kristen Wiig from Bridesmaids.

As it turns out, none of those theories was the cause. On her own Tumblr, Swift re-posted the speculation, and set the record straight. “I saw the guy with the camera and wasn’t in the mood so I hiked the whole trail backwards and my security told me when to make turns,” wrote the singer. She went on, “Ah, the tranquility of the great outdoo-TAYLORCANYOULOOKOVERHEREGIVEUSASMILEAREYOUDAT.”

Swift’s hashtag, while mockingly funny, is actually a spot-on representation of the things paparazzi shout at her on a daily basis. Of course, despite not facing the camera, the star was photographed on her hike, anyway. What do you think of Swift trying to outwit the paparazzi?
