Taylor Swift turns down Cancer Patient's Prom Date Invitation

came across this

talk about down to earth

Quote:
Taylor Swift is a fairy godmother to a teenage boy.

Kevin McGuire, an 18-year-old high school student from New Jersey who has leukemia, wanted to go to prom with the country-pop star.

The teen was concerned that his appearance after receiving cancer treatments would hinder his chances of landing a date for the special occasion that also coincides with his 19th birthday. However, his sister Victoria had an idea that would lift his spirits and make this event one he would remember forever.


While discussing potential prom dates, Victoria suggested that he ask Swift to accompany him to the prom, a feat that seemed impossible at the time, but within reach for the hopeful teen.

"Having a date like Taylor Swift would be amazing because I feel like she wouldn't make me feel [like I was] sick," the basketball and varsity football player said. "She would make me feel like an actual prom date and make my birthday even better."

After seeing a Facebook event titled, "Taylor Swift take KEVIN MCGUIRE TO PROM!" and receiving thousands of tweets with the hash tag "#TeamKevin, Swift declined the invitation to McGuire's prom and instead made a proposition of her own.

"Kevin, I'm so sorry but I won't be able to make it to your prom," the songstress wrote on her official Facebook page. "But I was wondering, the ACM Awards are coming up...Would you be my date? Love, Taylor."

Even though McGuire is currently undergoing cancer treatments at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, he responded to Swift's exciting offer saying, "I have cancer. Cancer doesn't have me. Taylor, I would love to go with you."

Sounds too sweet to be true.
At first, I thought Swift straight up rejected him publicly , until I read her proposition. What a dramatic irony!

do you want me to type the cole's notes into the thread title? it takes a minute to skim the article..not to mention there's only so many words i can cram into to a title. people are so used to being getting spoonfed these days.

yup good for publicity.

However, her image does seem a lot better than most artist out there (what she does off camera is another thing). But at least she isn't turning little girls into whores.......

exactly my thoughts. I can't think of any mainstream female singers in her age group that isn't annoying and does not have a slutty image.

A celebrity publically donating millions to a charitable cause is also a form of "making MORE money". It adds to their advertising, their good rep and of course to their net worth. You even get tax credits from donating. I wouldn't necessarily give full-on respect to these people.

If $20 bucks to me is equivalent to 1.5 million to them, then I deserve undeniable respect whenever I donate. =D

Anyway, besides, the news article is sweet. Not everyday someone gives a thought to the sick. Even if it was all for the money, both parties win. She gets her fame, he gets a happy moment in his potentially short life. The Vancouver sun as is has a whole lot of news that no one 'should' give a fuck.

It's nice and all when rich people donate.
But if they do so, the best form of donation is when done anonymously.

It's all publicity when big celebrities donate 1-2 million dollars to charity,
when they make like $10mil/movie, multiple times a year.

Or when mega billion dollar corporations donate a huge 4million dollars.. or whatever.

Pretty sure having Taylor at prom will create a security nightmare. Getting him to go to a huge awards night def. makes more sense.

So then how would we know who donated if it's anonymous?

Your theory is flawed. You want actors to donate anonymously, but get mad that you don't hear about it.

After reading the title, this didn't seem like a stunt she would pull. I'm going to start a Facebook Page and twitter trend "I'm dying and the last person I want to push my meat into is Kate Upton."
