“Shake It Off” and “Blank Space” singer Taylor Swift has a reputation for being very close to her fans and not being shy about showing her devotion to them. In the past the singer has even invited her fans to her house and baked treats for them. The singer even takes time to interact with her fans on social media especially on her Tumblr account.
This past Mother’s Day, one fan named Kaileen wrote to the singer on tumblr sharing that she was feeling extremely sad because the date was the same as the one she had lost her mother years earlier. Swift has an extremely close relationship with her own mother Andrea and recently revealed that her mother was diagnosed with cancer.
Kaileen wrote “Dear Taylor, It’s me, iced coffee girl, and I could really use a hug. Today is Mother’s Day, a day most people spend with their mothers thanking them for everything they do. But, for me, I can’t spend this day with my mom because she’s in heaven. Last January, my mom passed away and a piece of my heart left with her. My mom was my best friend, the one I laughed with, the one I cried with, and the one I loved with my whole heart. For a while, I felt empty. But as you’ve done many times before, you filled that hole. You took me out of my sad place and made me happy. And because of you, I got through something that was the hardest thing in the world for me. Today’s going to be another hard day, but I know with you on my side I can get through anything. I love you. Always, Kaileen.”
Taylor quickly replied back “Kaileen- I love you so much and can’t imagine what you must be feeling today. You’ve lived through my worst fear. I’m so sorry you can’t spend today with her. It’s not fair, and there’s no reason why you should feel okay about it. No one should ever expect you to feel normal today. I admire and respect your ability to put forth such a sunny, sweet disposition when you’ve been through something so dark and tragic so recently. I never would’ve guessed by your attitude or your posts. I never would’ve known if you hadn’t told me. Sending you a huge hug today. Gonna go get iced coffee and cheers to you. :)”
Swift recently kicked off her 1989 World Tour in Japan.
