One of the downsides of fame is that some fans take things slightly too serious and become obsessed. Stans are generally harmless and are fun to laugh at, but there are a select few who have a few screws loose and can pose an actual danger to the celebrity they idolize. Such is the case with Taylor Swift, whose longtime stalker Timothy Sweet has been harassing her with numerous emails, tweets and letters for years now. However, enough is enough: she’s getting a restraining order.
Swift filed legal docs — obtained by TMZ — in which she claims Timothy Sweet has dogged her since January, 2011.
Sweet has sent a torrent of emails, letters, and social media posts professing his love for her.Among the messages:
– “If anyone in Taylor Swift’s family gets killed, it is not my fault.”
– “My wife, Taylor Swift (Sweet) and I live in Beverly Hills. I am in love with her. In conclusion, we treat each other with dignity and respect. I will carry a gun to protect her the rest of my life.”
– “Dearest Taylor, I’ll kill any man who gets in the way of our marriage. Message to John Kerry, Secretary of State. Message from YOUR Presidential Candidate.”Swift says she’s worried for her safety and the safety of her family.A judge just ordered Sweet to stay 100 yards away from Swift and 3 members of her family.
It’s good that things like restraining orders exist, but chances are something like this won’t do much to deter the crazies.

Last week on Best and Worst Celebrity Looks of the Week, we saw Camilla Belle wearing something diabolical. This week, Shia LaBeouf (above) clearly takes my WTF spot for the BEST, WORST, and most WTF look of the week. But do you agree? See what others wore this week below (and ask yourself, “Did Laura Prepon do something to her face?”) and make your choices!
Abbie Cornish at the Robocop premiere. That hair is just way too severe for me. The dress is pretty but I can’t tell if it’s meant to be sheer or if it just got caught under harsh lighting. And what’s with the metal belt?

Don’t expect to see Taylor Swift naked anytime soon – she’s made it known that she’s not into stripping down and feels like it’s more fun to be naked… IN HER MUSIC (dun dun dunnnn!). Sure, many of her contemporaries like getting naked every chance they can, but not our Taylor. No, she’s pure as the driven snow!
“I find it relatively easy to keep my clothes on because I don’t really feel like taking them off. It’s not an urge I have.”
“For me, ‘risky’ is revealing what really happened in my life through music. Risky is writing confessional songs and telling the true story about a person with enough details so everyone knows who that person is. That’s putting myself out there, maybe even more than taking my shirt off.”
Well, fair enough. I appreciate that she didn’t start naming names or trying to shame anyone who has taken a bit of a different path than her – seriously, that’s rare (not for her, just in general). Sure, I think it’s kinda silly that she thinks she’s being really “out there” with her songs, but hey, I’m a TaySwift fan…ish, so I’ll go with it.

Let’s take a look at what celebs were wearing this week and dub a “winner” for BEST, WORST, and WTF.

I love Taylor Swift. I can’t help myself, I just do. Not in a way that means I listen to her albums – which I do have in my iTunes, by the way – any more than once a year or anything, but she does have some “jams” and I do find her to be sorta adorable. And I can see why, when you’re used to winning everything and always coming out on top, you’d sorta grow to expect it in a way… which I suppose is the only explanation for what happened last night.
As the coveted Album of the Year award was being announced at the Grammys on Sunday, Taylor preemptively got a little excited for her win… which wasn’t actually hers. In fact, the trophy went to Daft Punk, but Taylor’s face before she realises that is absolutely priceless. Seriously, take a look at this:
It’s slightly tragic – and yes, I know, it’ll be obnoxious to the Taylor haters – but I think this is absolutely hilarious. Thankfully, her brain catches up with her face pretty quickly, but woo boy, it was tough going there for a second. Surely that deserves an award of its own, right?

This seemed to be the week of bobbleheads, for both men and women alike. Everyone needs to stop losing and start gaining weight, like now.
Go through these looks of the week and give me your picks for who looks BEST, WORST, and most WTF. Mine are at the bottom!
