Taylor Swift isn’t entangled in any embarrassing tabloid stories — past or present.

She doesn’t “overshare” on social media with snaps of her armpit hair or lewd tattoos. She’s a classic beauty but doesn’t exaggerate her curves on stage.

In short, she’s the opposite of pop stars who turn to spectacle (Lady Gaga), to hyper sexualization (Miley Cyrus) or to gender-bending (Katy Perry) to draw a crowd.

Swift just sings, and dances, and shares her world with her fans and a few celebrity pals, as she did this week in Los Angeles.

Matt LeBlanc, Chris Rock and Mary J. Blige were among the famous folks who joined her on stage as part of this week’s five-night schedule at the Staples Center. That came after she welcomed fellow singers Ciara, Fifth Harmony, Gigi Hadid and Lorde, plus Oscar-winner Julia Roberts to soak in her latest tour.

There’s a reason fellow stars can’t wait to join her orbit. Swift has three million-selling albums in a row thanks in part to her most recent release, “1989.” Forbes estimates her wealth at $200 million. Her No. 1 hits include “Shake It Off,” “Bad Blood” and “Blank Space.” She recently stared down Apple over artist royalties, and the technology titan blinked.

When she opened up about her mother’s cancer fight, the confession inspired a fresh round of admiration. In short, she seems incapable of making a misstep, and Roger N. Behle, Jr., a musician and entertainment attorney, said that’s no accident.

“She and her team have done a fantastic job navigating a whole host of different issues and opportunities,” Behle said.

That “team” refers to the cabal of managers, advisers and agents who work with artists like Swift to keep their stars shining as long as possible. It isn’t easy. Younger singers emerge every year, eager for a chance at fame and willing to throw some elbows to land a spot on the Billboard charts. Cutting through the pop culture haze becomes more challenging with every technological advancement.

Swift could have gone a more expedient route. Instead, she let her talents speak for her. While Cyrus used sexuality to break free from her Disney roots, Swift avoided that kind of prurient sales pitch.

“She’s not really pushing the sex symbol button … I don’t think she needs to. It’s consistent with her age,” Behle said of the 25-year-old sensation.

Swift seems incapable of a making a misstep.

She’s also humble, which she illustrated just before her five-night L.A. run. She tweeted a picture of herself performing in front of a generic banner with her name painted on it, a far cry from the hoopla that greets her at every tour stop. There are no fans in the frame. It looks like the kind of concert a mediocre cover band might score.

“Reminiscing about what my gigs used to be like,” she wrote in the tweet.

Handlers can only do so much for a performer. Even the most talented stars can derail their own careers. Consider how off-screen antics cost such high-profile celebrities as Mel Gibson (rage issues), Michael Richards (use of the N-word) and Hugh Grant (dalliance with a prostitute) and hurt their careers. Swift seems immune to these low moments.

“From what I see, she appears to be a nice person with a level head,” Behle said. “She appeals to a wide range of people in the community.”

That means teens love her bubbly melodies, and their parents won’t mind when they crank up the tunes for a change. And her fame may just be starting.

Back in the ’80s Michael Jackson could do no wrong.

“You can look at her monetizing her brand, her image, her name in an endless number of ways. You could have a Taylor Swift wine or toothpaste,” he said. “Most of the public views her favorably. They like her image, her general nature. That’s a credit to her team keeping that image (alive).”

That doesn’t mean she’ll stay on top forever. “Back in the ’80s Michael Jackson could do no wrong,” Behle said.

Swift and her team will do all they can to stave off that decline, and chances are it won’t happen anytime soon. Still, the future will present the singer with a choice — stay the course or expand her repertoire to lure new fans into the fold.

“If you keep selling the same thing you may continue to appeal to some segment of your base, but you may lose others. It’s a cyclical business,” he said.
