Taylor Swift has reportedly turned down an offer to strip down for an Armani underwear ad. The singer had reportedly been offered 6.5 million pounds ($10 million) to pose in her underwear with boyfriend Calvin Harris. But, no, Swift will not get nearly nude on camera.
"Insiders" claim that she has turned down an offer by Armani to pose alongside Harris, Mirror UK reported. The Scottish DJ is already the face of the underwear line, and it was said the label was hoping that the “Bad Blood” singer would be up for joining him in a sizzling shoot. The couple’s campaign was supposed to follow David and Victoria Beckham’s 2009 intimate campaign for the label.
Harris and Swift, who are now one of the richest celebrity couples in the world, have turned down the offer as the singer is not keen to strip down for the ad, sources said. The “Blank Space” singer thought that she “would be showing too much skin and damage her image.”
“If she was married to Calvin then things may be different,” said sources in Armani, talking to the Daily Star.
“Armani bosses reckon Taylor and Calvin could emulate the success of the David and Victoria adverts. The Taylor offer is initially around the 6.5 million-pound mark, but that sum could then triple with global promotion if the campaign is successful,” a source had said earlier.
That the Harris ads have done really well and helped Armani reach a new audience. Taylor, 25, and Calvin, 31, are estimated to have a combined net worth of $171 million, according to Forbes.
The “Shake It Off” singer’s decision does not come as a surprise to her fans. In 2014, Swift told Rolling Stone magazine how she is a very private person and does not take her clothes off for pictures. She also said that it scares her how valuable it would be to get a video of her changing. Swift added that it was sad to have to look for cameras in dressing rooms and bathrooms. She is not the kind of person to walk around naked with her windows open.
