I recently saw personal phone photos on facebook of Taylor Swift visiting a young cancer-stricken child.
The photos showed enough to demonstrate these aren’t one-minute photo ops.
So that was nice.
The thing with Taylor and her fans is that they are really quite close. Of course she does sincere photo ops with cancer stricken fans. But she will even just show up at a young girl’s birthday party for the big happy surprise, even if the fan isn’t dying of cancer. She has come through for her fans in some really meaningful, quiet ways.
She also took that stand against Spotify and apple not paying enough to the artists. It didn’t benefit her; it benefited the up and coming, on a string budget new artists and bands. She was “big” enough to take the first stand and help them out.
She is smart and a good song writer. She deserves all of her success.
