Taylor Swift says ‘I love Scotland’ at SSE Hydro Concert

Taylor Swift started off her UK leg of the 1989 world tour in Glasgow, telling the crowd, “I am one of you”.

Touching down on Tuesday, Taylor was accompanied by her mother, Andrea, just before her sold out concert at the SSE Hydro.

Taking the big stage she told the crowd that her father had instructed her by email to tell fans of her Scottish heritage.

Taylor said, “In the subject line it said ‘Tell Scotland this’ and in the email he said our whole family is from Scotland and you have to tell them that.”

“So I am one of you, and I’m proud because this crowd is amazing.”

After her performance of her hit song Blank Space, in which she swung a golf club on stage, she said to the fans, “I happen to love Scottish people, personally.”

Dressed in a sexy white hotpant suit and with black thigh-length boots, she thanked her fans for all their messages over the years saying, “I’ve been entrusting my secrets to you for 10 years and I’m so happy you do the same with me.”

“It’s sold out, it’s Tuesday night, you’re here with me and I’m so happy about it. Thanks for coming!”

She will play Manchester and London later this week.

Taylor Swift receives ACM Milestone Award

Taylor has always said that her mother is her biggest supporter so who better than her mom to present her with the 50th Anniversary Milestone Award at the American Country Music Awards in Arlington, Texas on Sunday.

The 57 year old Andrea Swift was very proud to present her daughter with one of her biggest honors of her career saying, “Like many of you with children of your own, I am a very proud mom. So I would like to thank the ACMs for recognizing her in this way and the entire music community for taking such good care of her.”

Adding, “I’ve watched this milestone artist from the time she was a tangle-haired little girl growing up on our farm filled with creativity, until now preparing for her world tour. Her favourite thing is to write a song, tell a story and play a guitar or piano.”

“There was the time she was 17, her dad and I strongly disapproved of a certain young man and rightfully so. She was mad, real mad, and she went to her room and closed the door. She came back about an hour later with a song called Love Story.”

Andrea went on to say, “I witnessed a young girl with very few friends who has become a young woman with many. She’s learning to stand up for herself and the things she believes in.”

“Whether it’s being brave enough to explore her musical curiosity and having a voice against those who hate and giving of herself to those in need.”

While her mother was speaking, Taylor was in audience, seated next to her father, Scott Swift, 63, who kissed his daughter before she went up on stage to embraced her mother.

Speaking to the audience Taylor said, “Somebody once told me that you truly see who a person is when you tell them something they don’t want to hear,’ she said, adding, ‘You showed me who you are with the grace you accepted it, and I’ll never forget it.”

“So happy I learned how to write songs in a town called Nashville. I’m so unbelievably proud that I learned to treat people with kindness and respect from country music.”

Taylor Swift reveals Mom has Cancer

Taylor Swift reveals Mom has Cancer

Taylor broke the news in an emotional post on her Tumblr blog on Thursday that her mother is battling cancer.

A very emotional Taylor, 25, said her 57-year-old mom, Andrea Swift, went to get screened over Christmas and was told the bad news when the results came back.

Taylor said this about her mom, “She’s always been the friend that was always there. There were times when, in middle school and junior high, that I didn’t have a lot of friends. But my mom was always my friend.”

Here’s her full post:

Hey guys,

I’m writing to you with an update I wish I wasn’t giving you, but it’s important and I’m used to sharing important events in my life with you. Usually when things happen to me, I process them and then write music about how I feel, and you hear it much later. This is something my family and I thought you should know about now.

For Christmas this year, I asked my mom that one of her gifts to me be her going to the doctor to get screened for any health issues, just to ease some worries of mine. She agreed, and went in to get checked. There were no red flags and she felt perfectly fine, but she did it just to get me and my brother off her case about it.

The results came in, and I’m saddened to tell you that my mom has been diagnosed with cancer. I’d like to keep the details of her condition and treatment plans private, but she wanted you to know.

She wanted you to know because your parents may be too busy juggling everything they’ve got going on to go to the doctor, and maybe you reminding them to go get checked for cancer could possibly lead to an early diagnosis and an easier battle… Or peace of mind in knowing that they’re healthy and there’s nothing to worry about. She wanted you to know why she may not be at as many shows this tour. She’s got an important battle to fight.

Thank you for caring about my family so much that she would want me to share this information with you.

I hope and pray that you never get news like this.

Love you.
Taylor
