Taylor Swift Shares Her Moms Cancer Diagnosis with Fans

 

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift’s mom has cancer.  Taylor took to her Tumblr page she had asked her mother to see her doctors as a Christmas gift. She says there were no red flags then, but results came back that indicated cancer.

Taylor says her mother wants to keep the details private but her mother also wanted fans to know. Taylor’s mom has been a favorite among fans and will often take photos with them. Taylor encouraged her fans to remind their parents to get checkups.

Just so you know…

Hey guys,

I’m writing to you with an update I wish I wasn’t giving you, but it’s important and I’m used to sharing important events in my life with you. Usually when things happen to me, I process them and then write music about how I feel, and you hear it much later. This is something my family and I thought you should know about now.

For Christmas this year, I asked my mom that one of her gifts to me be her going to the doctor to get screened for any health issues, just to ease some worries of mine. She agreed, and went in to get checked. There were no red flags and she felt perfectly fine, but she did it just to get me and my brother off her case about it.

The results came in, and I’m saddened to tell you that my mom has been diagnosed with cancer. I’d like to keep the details of her condition and treatment plans private, but she wanted you to know.

She wanted you to know because your parents may be too busy juggling everything they’ve got going on to go to the doctor, and maybe you reminding them to go get checked for cancer could possibly lead to an early diagnosis and an easier battle… Or peace of mind in knowing that they’re healthy and there’s nothing to worry about. She wanted you to know why she may not be at as many shows this tour. She’s got an important battle to fight.

Thank you for caring about my family so much that she would want me to share this information with you.
I hope and pray that you never get news like this.

Love you.
Taylor

Jason Aldean Helps Some of Music’s Biggest Name Launch New Streaming Service

Tidal

Some of the biggest names in music over all genres are establishing their own online streaming service. Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, Madonna, Jay Z, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Usher, Daft Punk and Jack White are backing streaming service Tidal.  Country music’s very own Jason Aldean has also joined the Tidal team.

Artist control was the number one reason behind this collective purchase of a streaming system. These superstar artists are not happy that tech companies have control, they want the power back in their own hands.

They all appeared onstage together in New York City yesterday to announce the launch. Keys says the artists hope the new service will “forever change the course of music history.”

Tidal is a direct competitor to Spotify, the streaming service Jason, Taylor Swift, Brantley Gilbert and Justin Moore pulled their music from last year. Jason is encouraging his followers on Twitter to make their profile pics blue.

“Together we can make history” #TIDALforALL.

The service being offered at two price points: $10 for standard sound quality and $20 for “lossless high fidelity sound quality.”
