Taylor Swift Explains Why She Hiked Backwards In Weird Photo

'I saw the guy with the camera and wasn’t in the mood,' she said.

When a picture of Taylor Swift with her butt to the camera surfaced on Tumblr (Tay's choice social media platform), fans had questions.

"Taylor wtf is happening here im confused," a fellow Tumblee (what I'm calling people on Tumblr) said about the paparazzi snap, which shows Tay in green shorts, sneakers and a tank. She has her back to the camera and is looking at a man gesturing to her like an airport worker on the tarmac.

Apparently, Taylor just didn't want to give the paps the pleasure of getting a good photo.

"I saw the guy with the camera and wasn’t in the mood so I hiked the whole trail backwards and my security told me when to make turns," she wrote. "Ah, the tranquility of the great outdoo-TAYLORCANYOULOOKOVERHEREGIVEUSASMILEAREYOUDATI."

Well played, Tay.

This isn't the first time the pop star has walked backward to avoid the paps. In March, her security helped her to her car while avoiding cameras. Sometimes you just need some privacy.
