According to Mr. Swift, he was inspired by Tay from a young age, revealing:

"When we were kids, I saw Taylor write songs every day for years when there was no one to play them to."

Yep, we can totally envision this. The singer was just destined to be a star!

The 24-year-old added:

"I remember watching her go door-to-door dropping off demo CD's at labels that never called. She was there when she was performing at karaoke contests and in the corners of parties with the same enthusiasm she now plays to stadiums full of her fans. Having seen that example, how much goes in, how long it took … That's always going to be bedrock for who I am and who I want to be."

Aww! What an adorable compliment.

On a more serious note, Austin recalled the moment he learned of his Andrea Swift's cancer news and how his friends at the University of Notre Dame helped him to cope:

This poor woman!!

Anna Swabey knew there was little hope for her to live a full life after she'd been battling a terminal illness for many years. Unfortunately, her story gets even sadder now that the cancer-suffering 25-year-old passed away just ONE DAY shy of her dream wedding.

Swabey — who had been battling a terminal brain tumor and was the writer of an influential cancer blog called Inside My Head — died on Friday, not even 24 hours before 160 of her closest confidants were supposed to see her wed Andy Bell, her boyfriend of ten months.

Bell — who knew of Swabey's condition but wanted to marry the love of his life anyways — met Anna exactly a month after she had been diagnosed with the terminal brain tumor last January.

At one point a few months ago in an essay for Marie Claire, Anna revealed that the tumor made things very, very difficult for her with Andy, writing:

"I knew halfway through my third date with Andy that I was going to break his heart. Not because I was going to cheat on him or dump him, but because I knew I was going to die."

We have no words.

But it gets worse…

***WARNING: Graphic Details Ahead***

This is truly out of a horror story.

An upstate New York man faces life in prison after admitting to beating his toddler to death back in February… just weeks after the 21-month-old girl had overcome cancer.

Ryan Lawrence accepted a plea deal on Thursday during a court appearance over the unspeakable crime where he used a wooden baseball bat to beat his not-even-two-year-old daughter Maddox to death.

Police have long believed that Ryan killed Maddox because — believe it or not — he was actually jealous of the attention she was receiving from her cancer diagnosis and subsequent survival.

Unreal.

After killing her, police allege Ryan then
