During her ‘Eras Tour’ stop in Minneapolis ahead of ‘Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)’ release, the ‘All Too Well’ songstress asks fans to spread ‘kindness’ and ‘gentleness.’
AceShowbiz –Taylor Swift has encouraged Swifties against cyberbullying John Mayer. Less than two weeks before releasing “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)” which was believed to include her story with her ex-boyfriend, the “Shake It Off” songstress personally asked fans to spread “kindness” and “gentleness” on social media.
The 33-year-old made the request in between her onstage performances on Saturday night, June 24, during her “Eras Tour” stop at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. “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 told concertgoers.
The “Blank Space” hitmaker went on to explain the reason she re-releases the album as saying, “So what I’m trying to say is, I’m putting this album out because I want to own my music and I believe that any artist who has the desire to own their music should be able to. That’s why I’m putting out this album.”
Taylor further assured fans, “I’m 33 years old, I don’t care about anything that happened to me when I was 19 except the songs I wrote and the memories we made together.” She continued, “So what I’m trying to tell you, is that I am not putting this album out so you should feel the need to defend me on the internet against someone you think I wrote a song about 14 million years ago when I was 19.”
Although Taylor did not bluntly mention John’s name, she later surprised the crowd with a rare live performance of “Dear John”. The track, which she last performed in 2012 in Auckland, New Zealand, is widely believed to be about John whom she dated from 2009 to 2010.
Elsewhere in her speech before her “Dear John” performance, Taylor addressed Swifties’ interaction with each other. “I get to stand on this stage every single night of this tour and watch some of the most beautiful things happen,” she said. “I watch you guys make friends with each other. I watch you bond. I watch you give each other friendship bracelets.”
Taylor additionally shared, “I see so many beautiful interactions happen, and I hear so many stories about friends that were made at these shows, and I watch it happen, and it’s the most unbelievable thing to watch.”
