TAYLOR SWIFT EXPLAINS WHY SHE SHOWED HER NAVEL
LONDON (AP) -- Either it's a big deal to you or it isn't, depending how into Taylor Swift you are: she has a belly button. Swift had said previously she would not be photographed showing her navel, but then she released photos of herself and her friends in bikinis while on vacation in Hawaii recently. The Taylor Swift belly-button watchers went crazy. Turns out it was her way of thwarting the paparazzi. Swift tells BBC's Radio 1 they were in the middle of the ocean scuba-diving when her security spotted another boat and a photographer with a long lens. Swift says she took her own pictures and posted them on Instagram so the paparazzi photos would be worth less.
