Taylor Swift takes no chances when it comes to protecting her music. In behind the scenes footage shot while she filmed her "End Game" music video, Swift explains that she doesn't even let her backup dancers listen to her music before it's released. Um, what?

"I commend them fully because um...they've been pretending like there's music playing when there's not," Swift said. (While her dancers use the click track, she gets to listen to the actual song on headphones, which makes sense. She is the artist, after all!)

And don't expect special treatment even if you're providing guest vocals for a T-Swift track! In the footage, Swift bestie Ed Sheeran explains the spy movie-worthy lengths to which she went before he was allowed a listen. "I remember when I did a song with [Taylor] for her album, I was in San Francisco, and they sent someone with a locked briefcase with an iPad and one song on it," Sheeran reminisces.
