Taylor Swift is finally opening up and revealing why she did not blast Donald Trump before the 2016 election.
In an interview with Vogue magazine, Swift explained her qualms about attacking Trump or endorsing Hillary Clinton.
"Unfortunately, in the 2016 election you had a political opponent who was weaponizing the idea of the celebrity endorsement," she said. "He was going around saying, 'I'm a man of the people. I'm for you. I care about you.'"
Swift noted she had been under attack at the time professionally.
"I just knew I wasn't going to help," she said. "Also, you know, the summer before that election, all people were saying was: 'She's calculated. She's manipulative. She's not what she seems. She's a snake. She's a liar.'
"These are the same exact insults people were hurling at Hillary. Would I be an endorsement or would I be a liability?
"Literally millions of people were telling me to disappear. So, I disappeared in many senses."
The Daily Beast said many became aggravated by Swift's silence before the election. Some suspected she did not want to alienate fans who were Trump supporters. Others speculated she was a Trump backer.
