Swift, ‘My Fans Are Nice To Other Fans’

Taylor Swift said backstage at the CMAs: ‘For me when I think about them, and I think about my fans as a group. I think about the little things. I think about the letters that I get from classrooms, and the YouTube videos of some little girl opening up her Christmas present and it’s tickets to my show. And I think of young girls learning lessons on guitar.

Sometimes I’ll sit in a position where I can watch people leave the shows and I’ll look at the shirts that they made and the signs and some people will cover themselves in Christmas lights so I can see them from the stage. I know that’s creepy but I just like to watch.

I just feel so proud that my fans are always nice to other fans. They don’t say hateful things. They don’t say they’re going to set people on fire or anything. They’re not sending death threats to other people.’

Taylor will perform for the Duke of Cambridge and his guests on Tuesday, Nov. 26, during Winter White Gala at Kensington Palace in London. The event will raise money for Centrepoint, a charity providing housing and a range of other services to young homeless people in the UK. Taylo: ‘I’m really excited. I’m really stoked. It’s the first royal engagement I’ve done and I’m very, very honored.

I think I’m just really safe if I just shake hands and be polite. I think that’s being presumptuous in assuming I’ll meet them, so first I’m going to be polite enough to not assume I’ll meet them. I can’t wait to be back. I’m just so honored.’ FULL list of CMA 2013 winners under!

  • Rosemary

    I think she’s the only celebrity who is genuinely nice to her fans. Miley might be too but I think Taylor is at the top.

    • sdsa

      Miley is on and off honestly.
      Sometimes i feel like she just uses her fans for fame and attention

      • :)

        Yeah right! That’s why she hired one of her fans to work for her, which that fan is no longer on twitter.

    • Duckyhoward15

      I doubt that this is right honestly

  • cerenagee

    I love this

  • Swifties 4 TayTay

    She’s so cute. I love how she acts like a total fangirl at award shows.

  • Marina And My Diamonds

    I’ve actually been cursed out by swifties. I mentioned on tumblr that I didn’t like how scruffy her ends looked and they went mad. Even on Twitter when I tweeted about the jokes Tracy Morgan was making on the BBMAwards. My mentions were foul.

    • Marina And My Diamonds

      You can down my comment until you’re blue in the face it doesn’t change that swifties can and many are just rude.

  • Anon

    She is definitely the most caring person out of every celebrity when it comes to the fans. I think that really says a lot especially considering how successful she is. I love her so much, tbh

  • @nn@mmm

    To bad they are disrespectful to other artist. A lot of her fans last night were being Beyond rude because George Strait won EOTY, saying stuff like how he is old, and not famous or big enough.

    The man is a legend.

    • Anon

      Lol, thats kind of funny because all the fans I saw on twitter and stuff were actually okay with it and congratulating him because they knew he was on his last tour and he’s a legend. Even though he deserved it out of all the nominees, of course fans are going to be a little mad when their idol loses. I actually saw more luke bryan fans complaining than swift fans last night

      • @nn@mmm

        I saw many posts on Tumblr last night under the George tag, complaining about it, and then praising her for her award.

    • Duckyhoward15

      Exactly they are still rude to joe jonas after all this time , her fans are the rudest remember when they sent death threats to that old actor who joked about not wanting his son to date her and she didn’t stop them she just thanked them ?

      • tbh

        “Her fans are the rudest”
        um….coming from somebody with a harry styles icon I would have to disagree. Compared to every other fan base out there her fans are actually really sweet. I don’t remember her fans ever sending death threats, I remember them trying to defend her to which she thanked them, yeah. But she didn’t thank them for sending death threats, she thanked them for having her back and being supportive because she’s always perceived in a negative way with her dating history which tbh is all rumours.

        • Duckyhoward15

          Lol actually directioners are known for being dangerous blah blah but we don’t deny it while she and her fans deny it . Her fans wished directioners cancer and made it a TT but I have to say some of her fans are so sweet . NO her fans sent death threats to the guy and bullied him THIS ISNOT having her back this is CYBER BULLYING , when directioners hated on caroline Harry used to come on twitter and defend her nicely and he did the same with Taylor so we stopped .

          • Anon

            Lol, her fans actually didn’t trend that directioners deserve cancer thing, it was a troll account and then all of the directioners started using the hashag int their tweets themselves, which made it trend. And that guy said some rude things about her, so obviously her fans want to me their for her. Taylor actually reached out to him and confronted it. I acually can’t even believe I’m talking to a directioner about this, if you go on twitter directioners have literally made a list of people they hate, INCLUDING taylor swift. And even ed sheeran defended taylor more than harry while the were dating, but then again ed sheeran is amazing.

      • Swifties 4 TayTay

        Oh, please. Compared to the other fandoms sending death threats and verbally assaulting members of the bands family and significant others? Its sad when their idols has to tell them to be nice to their loved ones. Never been a problem with Swifties. There may be a small # of crazies in any fandom, but to be able to make documentaries based on how hateful fans are or even when their girlfriends acknowledges the hate they’ve received and has to delete their accounts.. No comparison here.

        • Duckyhoward15

          Lol our boys defended us when they were asked about that , we are always nice and supportive when it comes to boys and their families except larry shippers and donot tell me swifties didn’t do the same to Harry when he dated Taylor I saw with my own eyes tweets calling him ugly and how they want to kill him and they did the same to Joe Jonas but after the break till now , yeah maybe some of her fans are bad and yeah I can’t deny that I met really nice swifties but she was basically insulting 1D and don’t deny that we helped swifties in some awards Taylor was nominated to and the documentary is rude and untrue we are actually a nice and helpful fandom try it first .

          • Anon

            This is honestly getting so funny coming from a directioner. I never once saw anybody hating on harry when they dated, they were just happy that she was happy. You can’t even deny it yourself that even today, when you search the taylor swift tag on twitter, you will find directioners hating on her. Its pathetic, really. Find me one swiftie being mean in the 1D tag and I’ll give you a point. Lol, nobody even talks about Joe anymore, Taylor even wrote him a really nice song called Holy Ground. And you NEVER helped swifties win some awards, that is untrue. I actually saw many swifties helping 1D beat the vevo record. Some directioners are really sweet, like I think you can be sometimes, but swifties are a lot nicer. CMA night we were just trying to enjoy her big pinnacle award and directioners kept interfering, saying she wasn’t country anymore and that she didn’t deserve it. When she deserved it more than anyone.

          • Duckyhoward15

            You need to really do your research before denying they hated on Harry lol and yes directioners hated on her I didn’t deny it and no one said we are nice and I don’t have to prove it to you but I promise I will if you really failed doing it YOURSELF , no honey we voted for her to win awards at tcas when swifties helped us to beat the record when bse was out as a pay back , oh like swifties didn’t do the same to 1d during the vmas lol , donot say they are alot nicer some are and some aren’t in all cases not just us or swifties

          • Anon

            I’m not saying NOBODY hated on harry, but it was literally very little people. I myself honestly never saw anybody say anything bad about him. Especially compared to the amount of directioners who STILL send her hate and death threats everyday. And no, you never helped her win any awards at the tcas? Lol it was probably like one person and then the rest were trying to get retweets by saying bad things about taylor. And swifties actually did NOT do the same thing to 1d during the vmas. You cant even deny that yourself bby. What I was trying to say was that the majority of swifties really don’t hate on 1d, a lot of them like 1d just not their very rude and ridiculous fans. I like 1d but do you think I’m not going to reply to someone when they tell me my idol is a whore? And swifties actually are alot nicer, like I said you dont see them hating 1d in the 1d tag lol.

          • Duckyhoward15

            No swifties did the same to 1D and till now they still make fun of Harry just search before you talk :D

          • Anon

            I do search before I talk, just like I did in the 1D and taylor swift tags. And last time I checked swifites do not send thousands of death threats to 1d or make fun of them every chance they get :D

          • Duckyhoward15

            Trust me directioners stopped since two weeks ago because Harry had a new fling and the girl was just bad so now they forgot about Taylor :)

    • Swifties 4 TayTay

      Well, I’m pretty sure she is talking about the majority of her fans. There will always be a small minority of any fandom who are inappropriate and rags on others.

  • boystan

    not the ones irl though
    fucking bitches trying to cut in line at her show

  • getlikemiley

    wait she has fans?

    • Fail

      You tried though.

  • ugh

    TAYLOR IS NOT NICE. SHE FUCKING CALLED THE COPS ON FANS BEFORE. THEY WEREN’T EVEN THERE FOR HER. SHE NEEDS TO GET OVER HERSELF. I really am so sick of everyone thinking she is sooo nice. She really isn’t.

    • Hollyhysteria

      She never called the cops, her security did.

    • Swifties 4 TayTay

      Taylor ordered pizza for her fans waiting outside her hotel because she didn’t have time to sign autographs. She held a 14 1/2 hour meet and greet with her fans in one day.
      There was a crowd of people standing around on her property line. She had two attempted break in and her security were doing there job keeping her house safe. She wasn’t even in town during the incident.
