One of the most recognizable and popular legends in NBA history, Shaquille O’Neal regularly rubs shoulders with other celebrities. He nevertheless admits to having adopted a very specific strategy to get in touch with Taylor Swift.

Most of the time, it’s him that simple fans ask for a photo of. However, it happens that Shaquille O’Neal adopts the same attitude when he finds himself near another international star.

Proud to share the photos in question on his Instagram account, for example, he appeared with a big smile alongside Ice Spice and Taylor Swift on the sidelines of SuperBowl LVIII:

Shaq’s confession after meeting Taylor Swift

Holder of a certain notoriety around the world thanks to his exploits carried out on the NBA floors, O’Neal cannot however compete with Taylor Swift in this area.

It therefore does not seem so surprising that he was the one who initiated their meeting. Invited to come back to the latter in his Big Podcast , the legendary kingpin nevertheless affirms that he would never have done it without the help of co-host Adam Lefkoe:

Shaquille O’Neal: When I see another superstar, I don’t want to bother them because I know what it’s like.

For example, luckily you connected me with Jason (Kelce).

Without it, I never would have tried to meet Taylor Swift. And even when I decided to go see her, I told myself that it wouldn’t last more than three minutes no matter what.

As a player whose popularity extends beyond the boundaries of his sport, Shaq knows the other side of the coin.

Therefore, there is no question of him bothering a celebrity like Taylor Swift in an inappropriate context, or at least for the shortest possible time.

It was therefore this final recipe that he decided to apply when the opportunity presented itself, which allowed him to form a positive opinion on the artist:

Shaquille O’Neal: I didn’t want to bother her during the game so I went to see her during a break, and the security guy told me to come back at halftime.

I said to myself that it was screwed. In the end, I went there at halftime, they let me into his dressing room and we took a photo together.

She was very nice. I tried to make it quick but she was nice.

While happy to have been able to pose with Taylor Swift, Shaquille O’Neal nevertheless admits to having shown a certain reserve towards her.

And what could be more logical for a man whose daily life must be disrupted by dozens of photo requests.
