Taylor Swift Sings A Song To A Child In A Hospital

Taylor Swift did one of her frequent hospital visits and met Jordan. Jordan is battling leukemia and Williams Syndrome but you have never seen a kid so happy to be hanging out with Taylor. When she asks him what song he would like to hear, he tells her to pick her favorite. This is why I put up with all the Taylor photo op photos. She actually walks the walk and goes to hospitals all the time. All the time.

She's donated millions to a music academy in NYC as well.

Freya said...

Good for her and happy for him!!

derek harvey said...

Shania Twain did that all the time for children back in the day as well (when children knew of Shania Twain)

Michael said...

That was very cool. The little boy seemed so happy.

I know this is gonna sound strange, but knowing she likes racy lingerie under her preppy clothes makes me like her just a tad. I can't stand fake people who need everyone to be convinced they are perfect and sweet, she reminds me too much of Rachel Berry. But the racy lingerie she doesn't want anyone to know she wears makes her more human to me. I'm not sure how much sense that made though.

TL;DR I've never liked her before, it's a new thing I'm trying out.

AndrewBW said...

That's the first time I've ever heard that song and liked it.

DoctahRivenIsAHasBeen said...

Whoops editing fail. I meant to say firstly that I saw it yesterday and thought it was really sweet. I'm glad I'm finally noticing the good things she does for kids, it seems far more genuine than Selena's photo ops.

Renoblondee said...

Can't watch now, but love her.

ItsCourtneyD said...

I'm not gonna lie. I'm sitting here fighting tears back while watching this. God bless her for making that sweet sweet child's day. She truly is a genuine person.

MISCH said...

Very sweet girl….she certainly doesn't need or have too do this…
She has a big heart, a very big heart.

Lauren Turner said...

She really is awesome. I love her.

rajahcat said...

well I guess I can't hate on this

but she still gets on my last nerve somehow

cc423 said...

That kid is adorable.

rolotomassi said...

fancyscreenname said...

i'll bet tay has a leather thong and nipple clamps under that schoolmarm frock.

nice gesture though...

Jordan T said...

This made me tear up. How special for that sweet little boy! Taylor is a gem.

Jessica said...

This is why I am more than ok with buying my 10 yr old (and me lol) every CD or download and make sure we are ready the second tix go on presale for her concert when it is nearby. I don't know many if any other singers I would want my girls to emulate

NaughtyNurse said...

She is a class act. Her parents did a great job.

Meanie Rhysie said...

Oh, my jacked up sinuses can't handle crying...good on you, Taylor!!

@fancy, lmao You on fire, baby!!

Sunshine said...

Team Taylor Swift

fancyscreenname said...

awww, hope u feel better meanie. sinus issues suck!

sending rainbows and unicorn farts (which smell of cotton candy, just in case u didn't know) your way...

:^) <3

crila16 said...

She's actually an excellent role model for young children, and she's not even faking it. She doesn't do drugs or heavy drinking on the DL either. She actually looks down upon other young celebs who do that...and she ditches them as friends.

SusanB said...

I don't particularly care for her music but she seems to be a nice person. Just looking at that still shot got me teary-eyed.

LoooongTimeLurker said...

She is so sweet. She really is a good human being. She uses her celebrity the way I wish all of them would. I think she turned out that way because she was brought up that way. She was also NORMAL before fame. She is not stuck in a "me me me" world.

Wendy said...

She is lovely.

skippy said...

She really cares about kids. I like her.
I bet she rocks the leather thong & nipple clamps!

sugarbread maker said...

This is my favorite taytay song tooo. Props to Taylor for making this kid's year.

Oopsy_Daisy said...

I like how completely natural she seems around kids. It's very sweet to use her talent to brighten these kids' days.

rosie riveter said...

I didnt care for her at all, but recently ive decided I love her a lot

Renoblondee said...

Just watched. SO SWEET!

fancyscreenname said...

"I didnt care for her at all, but recently ive decided I love her a lot"

@rosie

i'll bet...

((a wry grin)) ;^)

secret said...

Taylor you are awesome. Jordan you are super-awesome!

8====D KermitGossnellKnobjob said...

She is so sweet, and she allegedly supplies female models to her male friends.

Swifty, be my friend. I don't speak English well (shocker, if you have ever read me here), so you can talk, and sing, and whatever all the time.

Zach said...

Alright, she is officially more than good in my book. Here is someone who is unquestionably a talented songwriter, has the industry recognition and success and fans, and has taken the time to stop obsessing over her ex-boyfriends and start making others' lives more better. I think she's a terrific role model for young girls/teens, as dangerous as it is to be trotting out the term role model.

Zach said...

Ugh "better" and not "more better" lol - I apologize!

Trilby said...

My Sis is an entertainment Journalist and my B.I.L. an Exec. Editor in a major city. So they've been my "go-to" people for contacts on a few occasions when I've been told about an ill child with wishes by people who thought maybe I could help out as a middleman. The two nicest celebs, both of whom responded unhesitatingly and almost instantly to the request, were Garth Brooks and Taylor Swift. And both responded personally, not through a Publicist. (Although the situations were then co-ordinated thru their Publicists to work out the details.). In both cases, the child died shortly afterwards. What they did for those kids was wonderful. Both not only arranged attendance at their concert, etc. for the child and family, but spent alot of time with them, gave them a bunch of mementos, etc. No publicity in either case. Truly genuinely big-hearted and caring.

sifichick said...

DAMNIT!!! I really don't want to like this girl but Enty & you guys are making this really hard.

Mary S said...

Taylor is so awesome. She sincerely seems like a good person, so generous and sweet.

Wendy Rene said...

Trilby!!! I fought back tears watching the video, then doggone if you didn't cause me to start crying reading about how wonderful some celebrities could be if they truly wanted to!!

Way to go, Taylor Swift (and Garth -- <3 him already)

texas rose said...

People don't think she is weird because she doesn't do nice things for children, they dislike her because she has dysfunctional relationships with men and bffs which somehow make it into her songs.

MrWolf said...

Taylor's a good egg. She likes to be famous.

I never heard the racy lingerie story before Doctor Riven. Fun times, spill?

Virtual Boricua said...

Ok, she's really, really sweet but what kind of song is that to sing to a child with leukemia?

CaseyColls said...

@virtualboricua
it's the song the kid wanted to hear.

Virtual Boricua said...

No, the boy left the choice of song up to her. "Pick your favorite," he said.

ItsCourtneyD said...

Maybe because it's an upbeat kinda song as far as tempo goes. No one wants to hear a slow sad song. Throw in a few silly sounding "we-Eeee" in there and it sounds fun to the kid. At least that's how I saw it.

Virtual Boricua said...

Honestly, I don't know her music but if that's the most "upbeat" song she could think of then I don't think I'm missing much. Again, I think she's terrific for spending time with the boy, but those lyrics...

paula said...

What a cute kid! And what a nice young woman she is to do this for people.

skippy said...

She doesn't have to do this for publicity. She is a talented musician & writes her own songs. However simple they are, & whoever they're about doesn't matter. This little boy was thrilled. Huge kudos to her.

Lila said...

Precious. What a kind-hearted woman. And what a happy & polite young man. This made my day!

Susan Bahns said...

wow go

sugarbread maker said...

What under 25 girl doesn't have dysfunctional relationships?

sugarbread maker said...

Cue selena gomez

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

Gotta give people that do this credit. If I was famous, I don't think I could; I'd get weepy.

Presto said...

She's a living Angel.
