Taylor Swift Is Being Called 'Mum' By A Fan And Mum Isn't Happy
The mother of one Taylor Swift fan has made a passionate plea after her daughter kept calling the pop star "mum".
Besides the fact that Swift is only 25 years old and her would-be-daughter is 19, the whole idea of calling a stranger "mum" just seems a bit strange to us.
It seems her real-life mum agrees and with the help of her daughter recorded this message for the singer on Tumblr.
"I really do like Taylor Swift, I am such a fan, but my daughter Maddie keeps calling her mum," she said.
"I am her mum! I earned it. I did all the work, I loved her for all these years.
"Yes you've loved her for a little while, but I've put in more time. So I just want to make it clear - I am her mum."
Of course being Taylor Swift, she was quick to respond writing:
This is a passionate plea and I see her reasoning.
Your mom birthed you.
I was off playing in coffee houses.
Your mom tended to you when you cried as a toddler.
I drew lyrics on my arms and stomped around in cowboy boots while you cried in the night.
Your mom taught you how to speak and read.
I was like ‘come on! Let’s all have fun and jump around at this concert and paint our faces with glitter!’
So no, I have not earned the right to be referred to as your 'Mom’.
I’m more like your crazy aunt.
So you shall not call me 'Mom’.
No, it’s Aunt Becky.
Because who wouldn't want a crazy Aunty Becky?!
Wondering why the "Aunt Becky" reference? It goes back to another Tumblr post talking about a girl called Becky who died of Marijuana - but featuring a pic of Swift.
Apart from being a lesson in why you shouldn't believe everything you read on the net, it also inspired the phrase "no its becky".
Oh, and then Taylor wore this shirt and the rest has gone down in Swift history.
