Taylor Swift feels like a paramedic

TAYLOR Swift finds it difficult to figure out whether her fans are excited or having a fit when she meets them.

The 'Shake It Off' hitmaker revealed that due to the excitable behaviour of her supporters when she speaks to them, she sometimes gets worried they might medical attention.  

Speaking about the level of excitement when she talks to fans, she told BBC Radio 1: "I'm cool with it as long as it doesn't seem like there's a medical issue at hand. Like sometimes I have to check with them, be like, 'OK, your hands are shaking, is this you being excited or do I need to call an ambulance?'  

"Like sometimes it crosses over to it's like, 'Is this how you get excited? Is this normal for you? Or are you having like some sort of fit, attack, and no-one thinks that you're having an attack, and I should be calling a hospital?' "  

The 24-year-old singer then agreed with presenter, Fearne Cotton, when she referred to her as a "pop star/paramedic".  

During the discussion, the fashionable singer also admitted she now enjoys doing interviews because she is single and has nothing to hide.  

She added: "I'm really proud of the way my life is. I'm 24, I'm single, feeling very independent, I moved to New York.   

"A lot of fun things have happened in my life and, so having journalists around when there's not really much to avoid, like you don't have to like, 'Oh don't ask her about her relationship!' There's not one to ask about so it takes the pressure off!"
