Why Taylor Swift's 'Terrified' Father Opposed Her Taking a Political Stance

When the highly-anticipated documentary drops on the streaming service on January 31, viewers will see a lighthearted side of Andrea and her way of saying "eff you" to cancer as she brings her canine "cancer dog" into the feline family. She'd normally spend TONS of time touring after dropping a new album but this time around she's reportedly limiting herself to just 4 stadium dates in America, and a festival circuit in Europe.

Maines, a Texas native, told concert-goers in London the group did "not want this war, this voice, and we're ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas".

Taylor Swift just opened up about the struggles her family is now facing.

"The symptoms of what a person goes through when they have a brain tumour is nothing like what we've ever been through with her cancer before".

She added: "Everyone loves their mom, everyone's got an important mom". 'I think songs that are really hard for you to write emotionally, maybe they're really hard to write and hard to sing because they're really true'.

While filming the documentary - which will premiere later this month at the Sundance Film Festival - Swift found out that her mom's cancer had returned. Looking back on the moment, Swift told Variety she couldn't stand by idly as someone who voted against LGBTQ rights and against reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act was voted into office.

Coping mechanism: Taylor has been using her music to deal with the family hardship.

While the fallout may have convinced Taylor to refrain from speaking and singing about political issues when she became a star, she has since realized the type of backlash the Dixie Chicks faced wouldn't cause as big of a storm in today's climate.

Brain tumors can be cancerous or noncancerous.

Why Did the Dixie Chicks Get Banned from Country Radio? She agreed, and went in to get checked. "And I wanted to figure out a way that I could do both those things".

"It's taught me that there are real problems and then there's everything else", she continued.

In Variety's latest cover story, Swift explains she understood where her father was coming from but that his concerns about her safety weren't enough to dissuade her from making the potentially career-altering move. It will receive a limited theatrical release come the 31st.
