Taylor Swift Instagram Tribute To Her Mother Andrea Swift On Mother’s Day
Taylor Swift wished her mother, Andrea Swift, a happy Mother’s Day on Instagram on Sunday. Swift included a video of herself as a baby working with her mom, who is behind the camera, to count to 10 and then saying some bigger words.
The caption reads, “My conversations with my mom have always been and will always be some of my favorite memories – from when I was 10 months old in this video from October 1990 to now talking every day on the phone. Our talks are everything to me. Myyyyyyyy goodness I love you Mom. Happy Mother’s Day. 💐 PS for those of you who are separated from your loved ones or struggling with this day, my heart is with you 💗”
Swift is currently social distancing with her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn and during this time, in April she participated in the One World: Together at Home Special where she performed “Soon You’ll Get Better.” Andrea has had some health struggles that she has been dealing with over the past few years. Swift wrote this song after her mother was diagnosed with cancer in 2015.
Swift told Variety, “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. So obviously it was a really big deal to every speak about her illness.”
Swift discussed the songs meaning in a YouTube live video prior to the release of her album, Lover. She said, “that was really, really hard to write, and it was just a family decision whether to even put it on the album. We as a family decided to put this on the album, and it’s something I’m so proud of, but it’s just really hard. I can’t sing it. It’s hard to just emotionally deal with that song. You’ll understand what I mean in a couple hours.” In 2018, the Swift family found out that Andrea also had a brain tumor and in 2019, Andrea’s cancer had returned.
