Taylor Swift Shares 'Hilarious' Way She's Staying in Touch With Loved Ones

Taylor Swift is getting candid about quarantine life!

The 30-year-old “The Man” singer chatted with the SiriusXM Hits 1 n chill “Home DJ” show on Friday (April 3).

“During this time I know that a lot of my friends and I have been doing a sort of weekly family FaceTime, which is always hilarious,” Taylor said. “I think it’s really important that we all stay connected because, you know, isolation doesn’t have to be an all encompassing thing. We may be all isolated physically but we can still keep in touch with people, we can still play games with our friends and families on our phones—that is one of the great things about modern technology.”

“So I hope you guys are doing a lot of self care in terms of staying connected to the people that remind you of home, even if the situation is strange and really confusing at this moment,” she continued.

She’s also been cooking, reading, and watching TV and movies: “A lot of people have been watching lots and lots of TV in this time of quarantine. I have actually been going back and watching old films that I hadn’t seen before. I went and watched – I actually hadn’t seen Rear Window and if you haven’t seen that film go check it out. It’s got Grace Kelly, it’s phenomenal, it’s [by] [Alfred] Hitchcock. So, yeah! I think that we can actually take this opportunity to not only just watch really cool guilty pleasure shows that are current but we can go back and kind of educate ourselves on films that were great in the past and still are.”

“But mostly I’ve been online trying to figure out how to help others,” Taylor Swift added. “And [I'm] just constantly in awe of our first responders and our emergency workers and our health care professionals who are putting themselves in danger every single day that they go to work. So shout-out to everyone who works in a medical profession and everybody who’s out there helping.”

“One thing that I think has been really encouraging to me is going online and see that a lot of people really are banding together and helping each other,” she shared. “Whether that help is monetary or whether that’s just offering words of support, it’s a crazy time right now and you never know who might be struggling.”

“I think right now we have to connect with our humanity more than we ever have before,” she said. “So, that’s one thing that I’ve been loving seeing is outreach, people being there for each other in this time.”

Taylor Swift has also been sending money to fans who are struggling financially amid the current health crisis.
