What’s the Real Reason Taylor Swift Skipped Sunday’s Grammy Awards?
Why was Taylor Swift a no-show at the Grammys this past Sunday despite receiving three nominations? It depends on who you ask. A source tells <i>Page</i> <i>Six</i> that the star’s handlers told Grammy organizers she wouldn’t attend unless they could guarantee she’d win an award. “[Her team] called and wanted to be assured that she would win the Grammy. And while it wasn’t an explicit demand, they certainly were fishing to find out if Taylor was a winner,” that source says. “It was understood in the conversation that if she’s not winning, she’s not coming to the Grammys.” However, another insider tells <i>Us Weekly </i>she stayed home because of her mom, Andrea, who’s battling cancer. “Taylor was at Sundance [Film Festival in Utah] a few days before the Grammys for the premiere of her documentary,” that source explains. “She was not going to be in attendance at the Grammys because she was spending time with her family and her mother, who has a brain tumor and whose cancer has returned.”<br />
