Taylor Swift has been sweeping fans away for quite some time now. Not only is Swift known for her musical ingenuity, but she has also influenced 21st-century fans culturally. The recent Eras Tour has proven to be the biggest tour of her career, and the fans can’t get enough of it. With the announcement of her international tour dates, this 33-year-old singer is amassing a loyal fandom even overseas. 

While Swifties love grooving to her music, they also dislike rapper Kanye West post the controversy at the 2009 Music Video Awards, which stole their icon’s limelight. And though they both get 1M+ streams daily despite being rivals, Swift’s loyal fan following might just thrust her into the presidential arena surpassing Ye, who has been eyeing the 2024 Presidential elections. So, is the ‘Wildest Dreams’ singer going to be running campaigns?

The respect she garners across different demographics made her an intriguing candidate with significant potential to bring about change. Her ability to use her platform to raise awareness and effect positive change has endeared her to a diverse audience among the youth and the old alike.
