Taylor Swift Breaks Silence On Politics To Endorse Tennessee Democrats

'I will be voting for...'

WHAT A MOMENT!

Taylor Swift has always kept quiet when it comes to politics, but following “several events in [her] life and in the world in the past two years,” the country-turned-pop star is silent no more.

In a rare lengthy Instagram post, the 28-year-old reveals:

“I’m writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I’ll be voting in the state of Tennessee. In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now. I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent.  I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love. Running for Senate in the state of Tennessee is a woman named Marsha Blackburn. As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me. She voted against equal pay for women. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples. She also believes they should not have the right to marry. These are not MY Tennessee values. I will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives. Please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote based on who most closely represents your values. For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway. So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count. But first you need to register, which is quick and easy to do. October 9th is the LAST DAY to register to vote in the state of TN. Go to vote.org and you can find all the info. Happy Voting!”

Talk about an impact! Tennessee is a key state to watch this midterm as many believe the historically red state has a chance at making a blue victory.

Taylor Swift Gets Restraining Order Against Fan Who Allegedly Threatened To ‘Rape’ & ‘Kill’ Her!

'I Will Not Hesitate To Kill Her'

Taylor Swift Gets Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker Who Allegedly Threatened To 'Rape' & 'Kill' Her!

Taylor Swift has been granted a restraining order against an alleged stalker who has allegedly threatened to “rape” and “kill” her.

According to TMZ on Friday, 26-year-old Eric Swarbrick (insert above) has allegedly been sending the singer horrifying letters since September 2016.

Some of the alleged messages include:

“I want to rape Taylor Swift. This is why I hate Taylor herself… This is how I know I am Taylor’s soulmate.”

“I have learned to absolutely repress the metaphorical monster in me, but, very soon, I will become completely responsible for myself … What logical conclusion is there other than death.”

“I will not hesitate to kill her… and there’s nothing you, your lawyers, or the law will be about to do about it. Remember who I am.”

According to legal documents filed by the musician’s lawyers, the alleged letters have become increasingly frightening — causing Swift to have stress, fear, and anxiety.

Her counsel fears Swarbrick will act on his alleged threats.

The judge has ordered the alleged stalker to stop contacting Swift, and to distance himself from her and her property.

Scary stuff!

Taylor Swift Pays Respect To The Late Aretha Franklin In Concert — Watch!

Moment Of Silence

Taylor Swift Pays Respect To The Late Aretha Franklin In Concert

Taylor Swift took a moment to honor the late Aretha Franklin in concert, days ahead of the Queen of Soul’s funeral in her hometown of Detroit.

During her sold-out show at Detroit’s Ford Field Tuesday night, the Reputation singer asked the crowd to pay tribute to the music icon, who passed away this month of pancreatic cancer, with a moment of silence.

Before turning the stadium lights off, she said:

“Last week we lost an irreplaceable force. Aretha Franklin did so much for music, she did so much for women’s rights, she did so much for civil rights. She was one of those people where no matter what you said, no matter what glowing positive thing you said about her, it would be an understatement. Words could never, ever describe how many things she did in her lifetime that made our world a better place. And this is her home.I would like it if we could have a moment of silence so that every single one of us could reflect on our love and respect for her and everything that she did in her life. So if we could please cut the lights, we’ll have a moment of silence for Aretha. We love you Aretha.”

Say what you will about Tay, but girl knows how to honor a legend.

Watch a fan-recorded video of the tribute (below):

Franklin’s final goodbye kicked off on Tuesday, with hundreds of people flocking to pay their respects at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History.

She will have a private service on Friday, which will be streamed online and on television.
