Mega Popstar Taylor Swift Calls Biden “The Change We Need Most”
Hollywood pop star Taylor Swift, who had recently gone political, endorsed former Vice President and Democratic nominee, Joe Biden, citing him as the “change”’ that the country needs.
The pop icon had been making a strong political stand after social media users bashed her for failing to endorse former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, during the 2016 elections. For this election, Swift believed that “Sleepy Joe” can make sweeping changes in the country.
Swift made the statement during her interview for V Magazine. In the interview, the pop star said that Biden is the “change we need most.” She explained that the country needs a president who recognizes the needs and issues of the people of color and members of the LGBTQ community. She added that there is a need for them to feel “safe” and well-represented.
The popstar also tackled the issue of the coronavirus pandemic. Swift said that the government should take the health risk seriously and prioritize the American people’s health and safety. Swift then said that the only thing that people could do to make things better is to find a President that is “willing to face these issues and find ways to work through them.” She then concluded that under the Biden-Harris tandem, the country could begin its “healing process.”
The pop star chose to share the said parts of the interview before the vice-presidential elections. In her social media post, Swift publicly declared her support for Biden as the country’s next President. She also encourages voters to support and watch Harris’s debate and even made cute cookies to go along with it. Unfortunately, the said debate proceedings became another disastrous event for the Democratic supporters.
I spoke to @vmagazine about why I’ll be voting for Joe Biden for president. So apt that it’s come out on the night of the VP debate. Gonna be watching and supporting @KamalaHarris by yelling at the tv a lot. And I also have custom cookies 🍪💪😘— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) October 7, 2020

For years, the popstar tried to avoid going political, in fear that it would affect her reputation and career. However, things changed in 2018, when she decided to speak against Republican Marsha Blackburn, who ran for a U.S. Senate seat in Tennessee. In a previous social media post, the singer described the Republican senator as someone who supports a long line of “hate bills” and as well as the enemy of “human rights.” The said legislation includes giving a mandate to adoption institutions to prioritize heterosexual parents over same-sex couples. “F*** that, I don’t care,” Swift wrote.
Swift’s entire charade had been documented in her Netflix film, “Miss Americana.” Moreover, the pop star also shared the hatred and criticisms she received for failing to endorse Clinton in the 2016 elections. In the said film, Swift also slapped back against President Donald Trump and his administration.
