Taylor Swift’s personal connection to Singapore

The 14-time Grammy Winner opened up about her deeply personal connection to Singapore, shedding light on her family ties to the vibrant Southeast Asian region. “My mom actually spent a lot of her childhood with her mom and dad and sister growing up in Singapore.” A video taken from a fan cam saw Swift speaking to the crowd. She continued, “So, a lot of the time when we'd come here on tour, my mom would take me and drive me past her old house, where she used to go to school. So I've been hearing about Singapore my whole life.”

The 34-year-old, who recently wrapped up her Australia concert with beau Travis Kelce in attendance, flew solo to her next destination before taking a two-month break to work on her upcoming album, The Tortured Poets Department. She said that visiting Singapore was always a pleasure and that returning here meant the world to her because she had heard about this country her entire life. "To get to come here and play a show this big with so many beautiful, generous people who are essentially honoring my family with what you just did with that song, it means the world.” The Grammy Winner said before adding, “I already love you. We're going to have a blast tonight.”
