Taylor Swift took to her Tumblr to make a big announcement yesterday (Feb. 2), but it wasn’t one that fans were too happy about.
Turns out, Swift will not be performing at the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards, airing this Sunday (Feb. 8) on CBS, because she was just too busy gearing up for her own tour, which kicks off in Louisiana on May 20.
In a post titled “Grammy Talk,” Swift explains she wanted to update those fans who have been asking her plans for this Sunday so they wouldn’t be surprised.
“I’m really excited to be nominated for 3 Grammys this year and even more excited that I’ll be there having a dance party/rage fest in the audience. I will also be presenting the award for Best New Artist,” she writes. “Since my whole life is wrapped up and entangled in the planning of The 1989 World Tour right now, I’m not going to be performing on the Grammys this year. I need this time to focus only on the tour.”
She ends her note by writing, “I hope I’ll see you out there at one of the stadiums this summer having a rage fest of your own!”
