Taylor Swift is so fearful of song leaks she doesn't let her backing dancers hear her unreleased tracks during music video shoots.

In a behind-the-scenes look at the filming of her music video End Game, shot ahead of the release of 2017 album Reputation, the Look What You Made Me Do singer explained that the dancers weren't actually dancing to the finished song.

The 28-year-old goes to extreme measures to protect her music and she revealed that her troupe of dancers in the pub scene were actually moving to a basic "click-clack" rhythm, while she listened to the song in her ear pieces.

Taylor Swift's motion to dismiss Shake It Off copyright lawsuit granted by judge

  Taylor Swift's motion to dismiss Shake It Off copyright lawsuit granted by judge Taylor Swift can once again breathe easy after a judge dismissed two songwriters' copyright lawsuit over her hit Shake It Off. The 28-year-old singer enjoyed massive chart success worldwide with the catchy tune, which includes the lines: "Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play/And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate." But in September (17), songwriting duo Sean Hall and Nathan Butler filed papers claiming they came up with the line in a hit song they penned 16 years ago. In the lawsuit, the accomplished songwriters alleged that 20 per cent of Shake It Off is their 2001 song Playas Gon' Play, recorded by girl group 3LW, due to the lyrics "Playas, they gonna play and haters, they gonna hate" - and sought substantial financial damages from Swift. Swift filed to dismiss the case earlier this year, and on Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Michael Fitzgerald agreed to do just that. Fitzgerald looked at the lyrics of both songs as he analysed the case, and had to decide whether or not there was enough similarity between the two tunes' protectable lyrics. "The lynchpin of this entire case is thus whether or not the lyrics 'Playas, they gonna play / And haters, they gonna hate' are eligible for protection under the Copyright Act," he wrote in his ruling.

"I commend them fully because they've been pretending like there's music playing when there's not," Taylor explained in the clip.

"I have these in my ears (headphones). They've been dancing to a click track. It's incredibly hard work."

The professional dancers can then be seen moving along to the click track as the Bad Blood singer mimes the lyrics along with her in-ears.

End Game collaborator Ed Sheeran revealed in a recent interview with Brazilian publication Capricho that even he gets the suspicious treatment when it comes to hearing Taylor's new songs.

"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," he told the news outlet. "They flew to San Francisco and played the song I've done with her and asked if I like it... I was like, 'Yeah,' and they took it back. That's how I hear it."

Rita Ora struggled with new music after Roc Nation split .
Rita Ora poured all the emotions she felt following her split from JAY-Z's Roc Nation label into the songs on her new album. The British star admits she struggled to release new music after her 2012 debut, Ora, dropped because her battle to get free of her contract rattled her enthusiasm for songwriting. Instead, she turned to acting and landed a role in the Fifty Shades of Grey film franchise, and became a TV favourite in the U.K. and America on shows like The Voice UK and America's Next Top Model, where she took over hosting duties from Tyra Banks. But now she's back with a new Fifty Shades duet recorded with One Direction star Liam Payne and an upcoming album, filled with uplifting dance music tracks and love songs. "I had a bit of an issue, publicly, with putting out music which got me really, really, kind of devastated, and I was really down, and then I was really angry, and then I was really frustrated, and then I was really happy that it was happening," she tells Billboard. "It was all these emotions, so my album is definitely a rollercoaster of emotions I'm still crazy, like, I still love to go out and party. Everyone who knows me knows that I love to have a good time, but I wanted this album to also be (something) you could put on and vibe with your friends. There's a lot of ups and downs, but I'm very, very proud of it.
