Taylor Swift Warned Against Endorsing Biden: “Keep Away From Politics”

As anticipation builds ahead of the Super Bowl, Democrats are reportedly eager to capitalize on Swift’s immense popularity by urging her to endorse President Biden.

However, such a move could be fraught with peril, according to some.

Jonathan Shalit, influential British talent manager and chairman of InterTalent Rights Group, has told the Telegraph that his “advice to any singer or entertainer would be to keep away from politics.”

His reasons? It’s a “complex” time. He said, “For someone to endorse a politician at the moment, it’s very, very complex, probably more complex than it’s ever been.”

He added, “The reason I say that is a reflection of how complicated global affairs are right now,” before making reference to the ongoing wars in Ukraine and the Middle East.

Dr. Georgia Carroll, an expert on Swift’s fan base, cautioned that a Biden endorsement could alienate some of Swift’s supporters, particularly those who oppose Biden’s stance on issues like Israel.

She said, “I think there is a potential risk there that if she comes out to support, people will call her out for that.”

Vilified Like Never Before

Prof. Shalit also warned her for the same reason – vilification due to Biden’s track record in Gaza.

He said that if she enters the fray on the Democrat side this year, she will be “vilified by a massive number of people in a way she’s never experienced.”

Concerns About Safety

Prof. Shalit also warned Swift about her safety.

He explained that “she also adds personal risk to herself… because there are a lot of extremists out there,” he said, adding that those she goes against may “try and do nasty, unpleasant things to her.”

Speculation Sparks Conspiracy Theories

These theories range from claims of Swift being a secret Pentagon agent to suggestions that her relationship with Kelce is a fabrication to boost Biden’s image.

Despite potential risks, Swift has not shied away from expressing her opinions in the past.

However, it remains unclear whether her endorsement could significantly sway public opinion or voter behavior, as studies suggest that celebrity endorsements have a limited impact on electoral outcomes.

Swift’s vast social media following (she has nearly 279 million followers on Instagram) and previous advocacy for political engagement among her fans demonstrate her potential influence.

However, experts caution against overstating the power of celebrity endorsements in shaping electoral outcomes.
