Taylor Swift Opened Up About Her 'Worst Nightmare' & It’s Not Dressed Like A Daydream

In a recent Harper’s Bazaar interview between Taylor Swift and famous rock 'n' roll wife Pattie Boyd, the two women agree on the dark side of being famous, and it shows us that celebrities, including Swift, can be sensitive to the torrent of public scrutiny.

Boyd, an English model and photographer, served as the inspiration for both her rock star husbands George Harrison, of the Beatles, and Eric Clapton. Swift confesses about her singer-songwriter process in the interview saying, "There are mystical, magical moments when an idea that is fully formed just pops into your head."

However, a risk each celebrity is bound to face in being in the public eye is criticism, and shaking off haters isn't always easy.

Boyd remembers a time when she was attacked by raging fangirls. She was kicked, yanked by her hair, pushed down a long hallway and ridiculed to the core.

"I got to see the Beatles play at a theater in London, and George told me that I should leave with my friends before the last number. So before the last song, we got up from our seats and walked toward the nearest exit door, and there were these girls behind me," Boyd recalled. "They followed us out, and they were kicking me and pulling my hair and pushing us all the way down this long passageway."

Boyd called the experience "absolutely terrifying," adding that the girls told her "we hate you."

Swift admits, "That is my worst nightmare. You probably felt like, 'If you knew me and I knew you, you would not be pulling my hair in an alleyway and saying, ‘I hate you.'"

The only defense Swift might have against her recent nightmare is either reclaiming her new reputation or coming back saying, “Look What You Made Me Do.”
