On Saturday (June 24), singer-songwriter Taylor Swift urged her followers to be “kind” and “gentle” in the days leading up to the release of Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), a re-recording of her album that was first released in 2010. The album is slated to be released on July 7.
Swift addressed the following to the audience at the US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis during her concert: “I was hoping to ask you that as we lead up to this album coming out, I would love for that kindness and that gentleness to extend onto our Internet activities.”
She continued by saying, “I am 33 years old, and I don’t care about anything that happened to me when I was 19 other than the songs that I wrote.” It is not necessary for you to feel the need to defend myself against someone on the internet who believes that I might have created a song about 14 billion years ago.
Swift’s remark took place before her performance of the song “Dear John,” which is widely believed to be about the artist John Mayer, who was formerly her lover.
Fans have stepped forward to show their support for Swift as footage of her speech have gone viral, and they have asked others to heed her wishes. According to the words of one of her supporters, “She’s not defending him, she’s defending herself.”
Swift is presently performing shows as part of her The Eras Tour, which will make a stop in Singapore in March of 2024. The artist just recently revealed three new dates for the event that will be held in Singapore, increasing the total number of concerts that will be held here to six.
