Taylor Swift buys adult-themed web addresses to protect her name

2015-03-23 19:00

Los Angelex - Taylor Swift has bought two racy web addresses to stop adult websites being started in her name.

The 25-year-old star has bought the rights to and - both of which would have been available from 1 June, when new alternative web 'dot' suffixes will be allowed - in an effort to stop her name being linked to any explicit material.

Taylor's move follows in the footsteps of Hollywood couple Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, who have done something similar in order to protect their five-month-old daughter Wyatt Isabelle.

Speaking in October, Ashton said: "We got the Twitter handle, the Instagram, everything. I don't want a porn site with my daughter's name on it."

And earlier this year, Taylor's Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr accounts were all hacked, prompting an angry public response from the Shake It Off hitmaker.

She wrote in reply: "Any hackers saying they have 'nudes'? Pssh, you'd love that wouldn't you! Have fun photoshopping, 'cause you got nothing."

Meanwhile, Diplo recently likened Taylor Swift's fans to "an army that's worse than North Korea".

In November, the DJ called on his fans to start a campaign to get the singer "a booty", but he recently confessed blasting her on Twitter was one of the "biggest mistakes" of his career.

He said: "All I know is don't ever get into a feud with Taylor Swift. She has like 50 million people that will die for her.

"It's like an army that's worse than North Korea. You can't step into that arena. That was something I was never prepared for ... one of the biggest mistakes of my career was definitely fucking with her."
