Taylor Swift shocked by tattooed fan

LOS ANGELES: Taylor Swift thought a middle-aged female fan was joking when she vowed to get the singer's autograph tattooed on her stomach, and couldn't believe it when she returned with the inking.

Taylor Swift was horrified when a 40-year-old fan had her autograph tattooed on her stomach.

The 19-year-old singer initially thought the middle-aged woman was joking when she told her about the plan, and couldn't believe it when she returned with the inking etched on her skin.

Taylor said: "I was signing autographs one time when this woman asked, 'Can you sign my stomach? I'm going to get it tattooed on!' I was like, 'Yeah, alright. Sure.' I signed it really big across her stomach. She came back an hour later with it tattooed on. I'm not kidding. And she was in her 40s, so old enough to know better. That's dedication though!"

Taylor is still adjusting to her fans pestering her for autographs, as she wasn't always so admired when she was growing up.

She revealed: "I wasn't really popular at high school. I've never really been sought-after by guys, but I don't wallow in it. It's my comfort zone, being single.

"I feel that a lot happens to you when you're not looking for it so I'm not actively looking for a boyfriend."
