Taylor Swift booed at wedding of close friend

Published By Alexa Caruso on Sep 07, 2017

Taylor Swift, who's making headlines after releasing her smack-talking hit "Look What You Made Me Do" from her upcoming album, Reputation, was booed after attending a friend's wedding.

Taylor was the maid of honor at her close friend Abigail Anderson's wedding. When she arrived, there was a throng of fans who'd found out about the private affair, wanting to catch a glimpse of their favorite singer.

However, Taylor was hoping for some privacy on her friend's special day. As you can see in TMZ's video below, the "Shake It Off" singer's entourage put up large black curtains in order to keep the fans from viewing Taylor.

As she emerges to get into a waiting vehicle in the video, you can hear the obsessed Swifties voicing their displeasure over not seeing the singer in the flesh, with many going so far as booing.

It seems the most private and intimate of events, even if they are for someone else, can't be kept that way when you're a celebrity.

That said, the singer is no stranger to invasions of privacy and PR nightmares and will surely "shake it off." She recently won a $1 dollar countersuit against a Denver DJ she accused of groping her.

Do you think Taylor's fans were right to be upset, or should they not have been there in the first place? Sound off in the comments section below! ~Alexa Caruso

    Umm this was not a concert! She wasn't there to stop and sign autographs for fans. She was there for a friend's wedding people! No point in booing. On the flip side the friend that invited her should expect that maybe the bride wouldn't be in the spotlight when your celeb friend shows up. Times like these is when it must be tough to be a celeb.

    everyone has got a hard life. If this is the most difficult part of it, than i would say you got it pretty damn easy!

    The fans had no tight to be there as it was for her friend

  4. eddy • 9/7/2017 2:32:52 PM

    What's wrong with letting your fans catching a glimpse of you. One day she will cry for that attention.

  5. Kerry • 9/7/2017 3:33:59 PM

    Total invasion of privacy those ppl should not have been there.

  6. Jackie • 9/7/2017 5:00:03 PM

    I feel sorry for Taylor, and the whole wedding group. People have got to learn respect for others and their privacy. The fans should be ashamed.

  7. Gary • 9/7/2017 5:05:56 PM

    Since it was a Private function for a friend I think it would have been rude of her to stop and sign autographs for her fans since it was not a photo op for her.

  8. Fawn • 9/7/2017 5:08:11 PM

    People don't respect someone else's privacy, anymore. Plus, the fans have a problem, they want to be recognized and acknowledged for being a fan.

  9. Cheryl • 9/7/2017 5:19:19 PM

    Taylor has a right to take part in her friend's wedding without having a fan frenzy!just because you buy her music does not mean you get to intrude on her private life!it is a sad commentary on how obsessive fans have become that they can't let her enjoy normal life events !

  10. Leanne bunnah • 9/7/2017 5:36:47 PM

    I do believe in privacy but her fans seeing her walk from the church to her car. The black out was entirely unnecessary

  11. Derek Beaupre • 9/7/2017 6:02:06 PM

    I can see her trying to make it all about her friend. The so called fans should understand that, but morons are just that.

  12. Molly Mccarnan • 9/7/2017 6:03:53 PM

    It's f***ing rude of people to boo if you ask me. She is at an event for her friends special day, leave her alone!

  13. Helene Caron • 9/7/2017 6:13:59 PM

    The fans were not welcome and shouldn't have been upset. It was the bride and groom's special day and they were according ngly the center of attention. Taylorcdid the right thing by being as discrete as possible. This is was not a concert or a photo shoot. It was a private family/friends affair that had nothing to do with celebrities.

  14. Cha • 9/7/2017 6:38:45 PM

    Who cares! Let's deal with important issues like deaths and homelessness due to hurricanes etc!

  15. Pam Grace • 9/7/2017 6:40:29 PM

    Absolutely not. If it was their wedding day, they would be upset at all the yelling. Celebrity life should have moments of privacy. There's a time and a place people and this wasn't it.

  16. wDG • 9/7/2017 7:44:52 PM

    GET A LIFE, PEOPLE !!!!!!

  17. lorena • 9/7/2017 7:46:41 PM

    I think Taylor showed a lot of class. It wasn't her wedding - and she wanted to keep the light on her friend. Good for you Taylor - you are a good friend.

  18. Isabel • 9/7/2017 8:12:35 PM

    People need to respect other people's space. Leave the celebrities alone! Let them come to you if they're interested in you. If you weren't invited to the wedding, why were you there? Please be respectful!

  19. Arlene • 9/7/2017 8:13:46 PM

    Stop pumping up her ego. She's not that great. There will come a day when she will fade into the background like every big star.

  20. MA • 9/7/2017 10:08:12 PM

    Much as I dislike this woman....she IS entitled to some time on her own without being available to everyone. She is a very immature, vindictive person, not at all attractive and while she does make a lot of time for her fans and interacts with them a lot, she should be able to do some private things without them being included.

  21. Dierdre • 9/7/2017 10:41:54 PM

    One quick wave wouldn't hurt, after all thats the life she chose, her fans are her paycheck and are devoted to her im sure, i was young once it hurts your feelings when they ignore you.

  22. Naomi • 9/7/2017 11:07:17 PM

    Less attention to Taylor and ALL focus on the real reason of this occasion. This is the Bride and Grooms Special Day. Stop being the selfish groupie fan and Start thinking of others. Being a Fan Groupie is nice. But there's a time and a place for everything. this was not the time or place to act like an entitled look at me I'm more important than anybody else moment. Meaning the fans and or Taylor. Taylor was thinking of the bride and groom. She was not there to promote herself. She was showing respect for the Bride and Grooms Special day. And So should the fans.

    The fans definitely had no place stalking a celeb while she was just trying to do something normal like be a part of her best friend's wedding. I would never have the nerve to show up there! Having said that, I also don't think its such a big deal for her to just walk out into the van without those ridiculous black sheets. So, the fans will literally get a 2 second glimpse of her and she can just turn around and wave. Not a huge deal. But then, I also feel like her just walking out there in the open would be kind of like giving fans what they wanted, and they would feel entitled to do this at other private events she attends, when they really have no business being there in the first place... so I guess putting up those black sheets was kind of like her telling them, no, you don't get to see me, because this is a private affair and you're crossing a boundary. If word gets out that she doesn't show herself at private events, then perhaps it will stop fans from doing this in the future.

    The fans shouldn't have been there it's her friend special day and iam Taylor didn't stop and give autographs and pictures the people should have known better it's a private wedding

  25. TeeDee • 9/8/2017 8:08:46 AM

    We've all heard many stories about celebrities being in a hurry to get somewhere and having to turn down a fan's request for a pic or autograph, only to get cursed out by the angry "fan" as they're heading to their plane or whatever. These fans are vultures who don't actually care about the life of the celebrity; they just care about being able to tell their friends about the encounter so that 'they' can feel special.

  26. Wendy • 9/8/2017 9:39:00 AM

    Oh my goodness!!! How earth crashing!! Let the bride have her day. And it is not about you the fans either or Taylor. Pick your battles fans,,,,, maybe think of someone else for a change.

  27. Aolani • 9/8/2017 1:05:00 PM

    I don't think she had the black curtain up to be malicious, not wanting her fans to see her, I think she did it out of respect for her good friend on her wedding Day. She did not want to steal the show. Kind of her actually.

  28. Dede • 9/8/2017 3:09:41 PM

    Taylor Swift was completely right to put up the curtains. If the option to see her at inappropriate times is removed, maybe these jerk fans will stop showing up when it's not appropriate.

  29. Adam Sorg • 9/9/2017 6:44:37 PM

    They were saying Boo-urns! Boo-urns!

  30. Astounded and dismayed • 9/11/2017 9:42:47 AM

    To all of those who had the brilliant idea of showing up at a wedding to see a celebrity. Get a Life people!!!! Your priorities are more than a little skewed in the direction of stupidity.
