Taylor Swift has to closely monitor her father's antics when he accompanies her on tour - because the country singer is convinced her dad sets out to "embarrass" her "as much as possible."
Swift, 19, is currently in the middle of a U.S. tour - and her dad, Scott, has decided to keep her company while she performs all over America.
But the teenager admits her mischievous dad is constantly playing pranks - and often makes her cringe in public.
She writes on her Internet blog, "My dad is along the ride for this trip. He's a social butterfly, and loves being on tour. He loves it so much, he thinks it's absolutely hilarious to embarrass me as much as possible. For example, (I'm) walking into the hotel lobby after returning from dinner. It's a quiet, serene, beautiful when... Screaming voice from out of nowhere: 'Hey! That's Taylor Swift!!'
"Me: 'Dad. Please stop doing that.' "
But Swift concedes her father's jokes do make her giggle sometimes. She adds, "It's pretty priceless having my dad out here with me."
