After being criticized for not supporting anyone in the 2016 election. Taylor Swift made it official this afternoon: she officially supports Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the 2020 election. Swift appears as one of the cover stars in V Thought Leaders issue of the magazine.
She told the publication:
The change we need most is to elect a president who recognizes that people of color deserve to feel safe and represented, that women deserve the right to choose what happens to their bodies, and that the LGBTQIA + community deserves to be recognized and included. Everyone deserves a government that takes the risks to global health seriously and puts the lives of its citizens first. The only way to start making things better is to choose leaders who are willing to face these problems and find ways to solve them.
I will proudly vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in this year’s presidential election. Under their leadership, I believe America has a chance to begin the healing process it desperately needs.
Swift announced the coverage on social media. “I spoke to @vmagazine about why I would vote for Joe Biden for president,” she wrote. “So fit that it comes out on the night of the PV debate. I’ll watch and support @KamalaHarris shouting a lot on TV. And I have custom cookies too.”

Biden’s approval of Swift comes as no surprise. Swift’s most beloved tweet is the one she sent in May condemning Trump for his tweet encourage police to shoot protesters if they start looting. She tagged Trump directly in the tweet, writing: “After stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism throughout your presidency, do you have the nerve to feign moral superiority before threatening violence?” she wrote. “‘When the looting begins, the shooting begins’ ??? We’ll vote for you in November @realdonaldtrump.”
Swift spoke to Vogue last September on why she felt like she couldn’t officially endorse Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. She feared she would do more harm than speak up for Clinton, as it was the same summer than its Snapchat scandal.
“Unfortunately, in the 2016 election, you had a political opponent who was campaigning for the idea of celebrity endorsement,” she began, without explicitly dropping Trump’s name. “He was going to say: I am a man of the people. I’m with you. I worry about you. I just knew I wasn’t going to help. “
Swift added. “You know, the summer before this election, everyone was saying that It is calculated. She is manipulative. She is not what she seems. It’s a snake. She’s a liar. These are exactly the same insults people used to hurl at Hillary. Would I be an endorsement or would I be a liability? Look, the snakes of a feather flock together. Look, the two lying women. The two wicked women. Literally millions of people were telling me to disappear. So I disappeared. In many ways. “
