Kelsea Ballerini’s Paparazzi Lessons

Taylor Swift Taught Her Well

When Kelsea Ballerini was in Los Angeles over the weekend, she got to spend a little time with Taylor Swift.

Which means she also got a lesson in what it’s like to be a major celebrity.

“She helped me experience my first paparazzi,” Ballerini told Extra.

“I don’t know how she does that every day. I was petrified,” she admitted. “It’s a lot of people.”

So here’s what Swift told her about getting on with your life even when you’re being photographed whenever you are out in public:

“She was just, like, you know, ‘Just look down at the ground and get in the car. You’re fine. Just walk,'” Ballerini said. “She got in the car first and was … crawling over the seat to let me in gracefully.”

It sounds like the even better lesson Swift taught Ballerini is to just be chill about it all.

“She’s so collected all the time, just genuinely like that,” Ballerini said. “She’s just the best.”
