2. SOUNDBITE (English) Taylor Swift, recording artist:
"I remember feeling like, you know, my dad has always just been so terrified about my safety since I was a kid. That's always been a, you know, the fact that my job entails standing on a stage. And, you know, there are so many threats we get on a daily basis that nobody ever knows about. And we try to keep that stuff under wraps as much as possible. But my dad is the one that has to see it. And so for him, it was all about like, what does this do? What could happen to you if you say this? If you say this am I potentially -- is my daughter in danger? And is this the moment when I should've stopped it from happening? I think my parents, you know, I have been speaking to my mom so much about it. You know, she went through the trial with me in Denver, which was, you know, a really horrible experience to have. And I had all the privilege in the world. And, you know, financial support and the ability to pay for a brilliant lawyer. And that is -- I won that trial. But without all that, I don't know what would have happened. So it taught me so much. And it was the women in my life who were there every single day going into court. And you know, that for me was a very -- you know, our political opinions and our opinions are defined by what happens to us in our life. So that was one of the things that happened to me in my life -- and seeing what was happening in my home state and then all culminating in having to have a conversation with people who have been so wonderfully supportive of me throughout my entire career feeling so afraid for my safety. And so it's a really real moment for me to watch that back."
