An unnamed man was taken into custody over the weekend after he allegedly arrived at Taylor Swift’s Beverly Hills home.

TMZ reported the following Tuesday morning:

Law enforcement sources tell us cops were called to Taylor’s Bev Hills mansion Saturday after security spotted a suspicious man in front of the property. Police responded and busted a 38-year-old man who said he’d driven from Colorado to meet with Taylor. We’re told she was not home.

After searching the man’s car and interviewing him, officers determined they had enough reason to arrest him and book him for felony stalking.

Taylor Swift has had an unreal go of it lately. A different man was just arrested for robbing a bank and throwing cash over the gate of Connecticut home in an attempt to impress her. Most celebrities are full of garbage when they complain about being famous, but it seems like there’s always a new Swift story about somebody stalking or getting too close to her.

I wouldn’t leave the house without a massive security detail if I were in her shoes. I’m talking at least a dozen men armed with 9mm rifles and three armored vehicles. It’s not worth the risk, and a simple show of force is often enough to send the message you’re not playing games.

It’s sad that we live in a society where this is even a concern, but it simply is. Swift has the money, so I don’t understand why shouldn’t spend it on protection. Plus, she can just likely put it down as a massive business expense.

Either way, this is starting to get absurd. What are these people thinking when they show up to celebrities’ homes? Do they think Taylor Swift is gonna come outside for a quick beer? Give me a break.

I don’t want to sound over the top, but America’s sweetheart needs to be protected at all costs. I’ve already called for special forces to deployed to protect our models abroad, and I’m edging closer to the line of assigning Swift a SEAL team. There is no cost too great in my mind. I’ll protect her with an entire army division if it means we keep getting her music.
