Stay away from Taylor! The singer got a big scare on Feb. 2 when a crazed fan bum-rushed the stage and came face-to-face with her before security guards wrestled him away.
Taylor Swift became the latest singer to get confronted mid-concert by an obsessed fan on Feb. 2 when a male Swiftie snuck on stage and went right up to Taylor before security was able to detain him.
Taylor Swift Brushes Off An Obsessed Fan
Tay Tay was just trying to end her rollicking concert at the O2 Arena with a rendition of “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” when the fan hopped up on stage. He moved past the swarms of backup dancers and followed Taylor all the way up the stairs to the top of her stage.
Once he got to her, Taylor actually appeared to be more amused than scared. We’ll probably never know what the male fan said to her, but we’d assume it was closer to “I love you” than “I’m going to murder you.” But either way, security guards finally caught up to the guy, and dragged him off stage while Taylor went back to finishing her song.
And once again, Taylor found a way to turn a possibly scary moment into something quirky and almost cute.
More Dangerous Stage-Rushing Incidents
But we are glad that the incident didn’t end up being dangerous –in past instances, we’ve seen these stage-rushers be far less goodhearted than Taylor’s was.
One scarier episode that comes to mind is when a fan attacked Justin Bieber on stage in Dubai on May 5. That fan aggressively grabbed at Justin, throwing down a baby grand piano in the process. Though the incident was much more serious, it had the same result as Taylor’s — thankfully no one was hurt.
Talk about a close one though, T-Swift! Hopefully you’re brushing up on your self-defense lessons.
