Taylor Swift lookalike is abused in the street by furious One Direction fans

April 26, 2013 | by | 14 Comments

A waitress who is a dead-ringer for pop star Taylor Swift today revealed One Direction fans shout insults at her in the street believing she is the US singer.

Xenna Kristian, 18, has been inundated with male admirers ever since a pal realised she looked like the pretty popstar a year ago.

She is often stopped in the street by gobsmacked male fans begging her to go out on a date with them or pose for a picture.

But she was stunned recently when young 1D fans started abusing her because they thought she was the real ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ singer.

The real Taylor Swift, 23, briefly dated pop hunk Harry Styles, 18, at the end of last year before they split up after Christmas.

Aspiring actress Xenna said: “It was the start of last year that somebody started mentioning that I looked like Taylor Swift and it gradually got more frequent.

“I would go out and would just walk to the toilets in a club or walk around the shops and loads of people would come up to me and say ‘you really look like her’.

“One day I was shopping in Liverpool and somebody walked past and suddenly stopped and said ‘oh my God’.

“They actually thought I was Taylor Swift and even though I told them I wasn’t in a British accent, they still asked me to pose for a photo.

“Most people are really nice but in December I suddenly started getting the odd nasty shout from young girls.

“At first I was a bit taken aback but then I realised they were shouting things like ‘leave Harry alone’ or ‘Harry is mine’.

“My friends found it hilarious that ‘Directioners’ actually thought I was Taylor Swift and were abusing me.”

Xenna, who has two part-time jobs as a waitress and as a shop assistant, lives with her parents Pauline, 56, and Stephan, 53, at the B&B they run in Telford, Shrops.

She studies performing arts and photography at college and has two sisters, Teiha, 15, and Tahnee, 24, as well as a brother Jason, 26.

As well as bearing an uncanny resemblance to Taylor Swift, Xenna is also a talented actress, singer and dancer.

She has already represented the UK at a hip hop international dance competition in Las Vegas and been an extra in hit TV shows DCI Banks and Fresh Meat.

Her stunning good looks and amazing voice have even seen the aspiring actress snapped up by a talent agency this month.

She added: “I never used to play up to it when I was younger but I suppose my hair is naturally curly like hers.

“Then when she got hers cut short and had the straight fringe, I had mine shorter too which was a coincidence.

“But people couldn’t believe how much I looked like her when I had a straight fringe.

“I’ve done my own versions of her songs at college, I did a slower version of ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ that everyone loved.

“But now I am starting work as a look-a-like I am trying to perfect her accent and singing exactly how she does.

“I spend hours a day watching her music videos and performances and practice in the living room.

“I’m also thinking about the clothes she wears. She is quite quirky and has her own style but I like the stuff she is seen in.

“I already have a few outfits which is like the things she wears but I always make sure I look when she is photographed.”

One area of the US megastar’s life Xenna is certain she will NOT be copying is boyfriends – after revealing she isn’t attracted to Harry Styles.

Xenna, who is still single, said: “Harry isn’t really my type. He is okay I suppose but I’m into rough and ready guys and he has got a bit of a baby face.

“My plan is to do some look-a-like work and then hopefully it will kick-start my acting career.

“I want to be known as Xenna. I would love to get into TV work but like doing theatre stuff too.”

Xenna’s manager, Mark Turner, added: “I was stunned when I went to see her in a production.

“The moment she walked on, even though she wasn’t meant to be Taylor Swift, you could just tell straight away.

“It was absolutely mind blowing, and she has a brilliant voice as well.”

    It’s kinda rude of those directioners to say those things to her. I’m pretty sure it’s not just ‘leave Harry alone’ and ‘Harry is mine’ that those mean directioners are saying to her. I’ve seen comments of a lot of directioners to the real Taylor Swift. uggh. Not all of them but these directioners are so immature. If Xenna has been abused on the streets by haters what more to Taylor Swift. It must’ve been hard for her. tssh. Haters gonna hate.

    For sake..so basically if i said “omg micheal jackson shared his sandwich with me” so im telling the truth…plus one or two or even five fans dont represent the fandom plus swifties dont act all inocent too im a swifti and a directioner but seriously swifties are the first one to abuse all the exes of taylor so wont you stop the hate and realise that if 3 girls call you something to stand up for yourself instead of making an actual fool of yourself worldwide.
