“My mom actually spent a lot of her childhood with her mom and dad and her sister growing up in Singapore,” the singer said. “A lot of the time when we would come here on tour, my mom would take me and drive me past her old house, and where she used to go to school.”

“I’ve been hearing about Singapore my whole life,” she continued.

Did Taylor Swift Grow Up in Singapore?

No, the “Bad Blood” singer did not grow up in Singapore. She was born and raised in Pennsylvania. However, the star’s mother did grow up in Singapore.

“To get to come here and play a show this big with so many beautiful, generous people who were just essentially honoring my family with what you just did with that song, it means the world,” Swift said after completing the song “Marjorie”.

This isn’t the first time that Swift has shared her family connection to Singapore. Back in 2016, Swift did an interview with a Singaporean magazine where she mentioned her family history. Her engineer grandfather moved to the country for work with her grandmother, where they decided to raise Swift’s mother.

Swift will perform for a total of six shows at the Singapore National Stadium before moving on to her French tour dates.
