Taylor Swift Shares Family Connection to Singapore, Where Mom Andrea ‘Spent a Lot of Her Childhood’

Taylor Swift has some family ties to Singapore, the pop star said at her concert at the Singapore National Stadium on Saturday (March 2).

“My mom actually spent a lot of her childhood with her mom and dad and her sister growing up in Singapore,” Swift, seated at her Evermore piano, shared with the crowd of Andrea Swift’s upbringing.

Swift had just finishing singing “Marjorie,” the emotional song she wrote about her grandmother, Marjorie Finlay, and was taking a moment to speak to her fans at the first of six Eras Tour shows at the stadium.

“A lot of the time when we would come here on tour, my mom would take me and drive me past her old house, and where she used to go to school,” she said from the stage. “I’ve been hearing about Singapore my whole life.”

Swift added, “To get to come here and play a show this big with so many beautiful, generous people who were just essentially honoring my family with what you just did with that song [“Marjorie”], it means the world.”

The musician mentioned her mother’s history with Singapore several years ago, in a 2016 interview for Singaporean newspaper The Straits Times. Swift told a reporter that her grandfather, who worked for an engineering company, had to move there for work, so her mom “grew up in Singapore. Her parents were traveling around for my grandfather’s job.”

On Sunday, Swift made an announcement about her upcoming album, The Tortured Poets Department, unveiling a fourth and final variant of the project that features a bonus track titled “The Black Dog.” Each of the other three Tortured Poets versions include a different bonus song: “The Manuscript,” “The Bolter” and “The Albatross.” The album arrives on April 19.

Check out Swift’s speech about her mom growing up in Singapore below. Her remaining concert dates at the venue are March 4, 7, 8 and 9.
