Taylor Swift put her foot down with paparazzi on Tuesday as they swarmed her car after the MTV Video Music Awards.

After the New Jersey ceremony, where she tied the record for most wins in a single night, Swift attended an after-party hosted by Diddy.

A video shows the superstar wearing her second look of the evening, a daring denim minidress previously worn by Sabrina Carpenter, and weaving her way through a crowd of onlookers. Men can be heard yelling comments like "You look beautiful" and "Over the shoulder, Taylor."

"Can you back up?" she replied before adding, "Seriously, back up."

This isn't the first time Swift has called out photographers for crossing a boundary.

At the 2023 Grammy Awards back in February, Swift was filmed asking a photographer to calm down as she walked the red carpet.

"Just give us a second, we're not gonna rush you. It's all gonna be fine," Swift said.

The singer took home nine Moon Persons on Tuesday, including best direction and video of the year for "Anti-Hero." She now claims the second-most VMA wins in history, trailing Beyoncé's all-time record.
