Taylor Swift has plenty of "celebrities, they're just like us" moments (dating is hard, cat won't behave, et cetera). But then she deals with those situations only world-renowned pop stars must endure. Exhibit A: She's persecuted by general interest media with a penchant over-enthusiastic punctuation. She tells InStyle in a video:
I get very attached to pairs of shoes so I want to wear them all the time. But now I have photographers camped outside my house, and people who are all to quick to point out when I've worn the same shoe twice in a month. And they're like "She loooooves this pair!" Like, exclamation point. So I've really had to really cultivate more shoes than my favorite three.
Permission to re-wear shoes granted, TSwift (!!!). Or carry on living the hard life, tilling the land for new shoes.
