I watch you bond. I watch you give each other friendship bracelets." "I was hoping to ask you that as we lead up to this album coming out, I would love for that kindness and that gentleness to extend onto our internet activities," the singer said.She further explained, "I’m putting this album out because I want to own my music, and I believe that any artist who has the desire to own their music should be able to, that’s why I’m putting out this album."TAYLOR SWIFT FANS WITHOUT TICKETS ‘DISCOURAGED’ FROM GATHERING AT VENUE AS CONCERTGOERS FLOOD IN FOR TOURSwift then discouraged fans from attacking people online. "I’m 33 years old.
I don’t care about anything that happened to me when I was 19 except the songs I wrote and the memories we made together" she told the crowd. "I’m not putting this album out so that you can go and should feel the need to defend me on the internet against someone you think I might have written a song about 14 billion years ago."The "Shake It Off" singer is re-releasing her album, "Speak Now," on.
