Poor thing. This night must have been so tough for her.
Taylor Swift was the recipient of the a variety of awards - most notably her first country songwriter of the year award - at the BMI's last night, but during one of her acceptance speech, she revealed that the accolades were overshadowed by the recent death of close friend, Jeff Lang, who was found dead in his apartment earlier in the week - and she had just attended his funeral.
"It's been a really emotional week for me… He was 21, and I used to play my songs for him first. So I would like to thank Jeff Lang."
How tragic! We give her credit for even honoring her commitment to be at the ceremony after having to endure that!
It was very thoughtful of her to dedicate the night to him, though.
We're sure that wherever your friend is now, he's so proud of you, bb.
Our thoughts are with all of Jeff's family and loved ones during this difficult time.
