Ask a celebrity why they love living in New York City and they will inevitably tell you it’s because of the “anonymity” the city affords. Since New Yorkers are too cool to ask for a photograph/autograph, they feel as though they can move around the city unmolested.
But not Taylor Swift. Since purchasing director Peter Jackson’s $19.9 million penthouse in Tribeca a few months ago, the singer/songwriter has been plagued by a swarm of paparazzi stationed outside her building. The pics they have snapped since she’s moved in (shown here) are a bizarre study of our new, obtrusive celebrity culture.
That being said, don’t feel too badly for ol’ Taylor. I’m pretty a $20 million dollar penthouse comes with a back door —she just chooses not to use it.
