Taylor Swift Reveals Mom Has Brain Tumour
Taylor Swift has revealed that her mother Andrea received some bad news while undergoing chemotherapy during a second bout of cancer.
“They found a brain tumour,” the singer told Variety. “And the symptoms of what a person goes through when they have a brain tumour is nothing like what we’ve ever been through with her cancer before.
“So it’s just been a really hard time for us as a family.”
Swift went public in 2015 with her mother’s cancer diagnosis, although she has never specified the type. Last March, she told Elle: “My mom is now fighting her battle with it again.”
Swift’s album Lover includes the song “Soon You’ll Get Better,” in which she sings: “You like the nicer nurses / you make the best of a bad deal / I just pretend it isn't real.”
Swift said she is being careful to plan her professional schedule in such a way that she maximizes time for her mother.
“I mean, we don’t know what is going to happen. We don’t know what treatment we’re going to choose,” the pop star said. “It just was the decision to make at the time, for right now, for what’s going on.
“Everyone loves their mom; everyone’s got an important mom. But for me, she’s really the guiding force. Almost every decision I make, I talk to her about it first.”
