Even from Singapore and while nursing an apparent cold, Taylor Swift was keeping an eye on events in the United States and the fact that today is “Super Tuesday,” the biggest day nationwide for primary elections and caucuses before Election Day in November.
In a post on Instagram Story, the pop megastar urged her 281 million followers to make sure they vote, though she refrained from endorsing any particular candidates. On Tuesday, millions of Americans in 15 states, including Swift”s home state of Tennessee, and one territory will head to the polls for contests that will set the stage for November’s pivotal elections on president and other state and national offices.
“Today, March 5, is the presidential primary in Tennessee and other states and territories,” Swift began her post. “I wanted to remind you guys to vote the people who most represent YOU in power. If you haven’t already, make a plan to vote today.” In this post, Swift also directed fans to the Vote.org, the non-partisan site that provides online voter guides and registration forms for every state.
Swift’s message, however, may not immediately reach her followers Tuesday, with users of Instagram and other Meta platforms Facebook and Threads reporting login issues in what appears to be a widespread outage. The Associated Press reported that the problems are occurring across the world, suggesting that the outage could be global.
In any case, Swift’s message Tuesday certainly isn’t the first time she has used her considerable influence to potentially move the needle at the polls.
During the 2018 mid-terms, the former country star spoke out on politics for the first time, endorsing Democrat candidates in Tennessee. An Instagram post, shared with her then-112 million Instagram followers, is credited with getting more than 100,000 people to register on the site Vote.org.
More recently, Swift urged her fans to register to vote in September, breaking traffic records on the Vote.org site. More than 35,000 registered on Voter Registration Day after seeing Swift’s message. For elections in November, she announced to her fans: “Voters gonna vote!” She told voters in Colorado, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and Virginia “to use your voice.”
Prior to Swift issuing her get-out-to-vote message early Tuesday, the singer was raising fans’ concern that she’s possibly nursing a bad cold. A viral TikTok video from her Eras world tour performance in Singapore Monday night has been circulating on social media, which shows her repeatedly coughing and clearing her throat as she performed her song “Delicate,” Page Six reported.
“Hope she’s OK,” commented the person sharing the video.
“You can hear a rasphy (sic) tone in her voice,” observed a second person, before saying about the seemingly invincible performer: “The show must go on…a queen.”
“I can only imagine how exhausting it must be whilst on tour giving 100 with every performance. She’s incredible!” a third person chimed in.
“She looks so tired. Hope she gets rest soon!” another agreed. “She’s working so hard. She needs rest.”
“She is so incredibly tough. I don’t know how she does these shows over and over,” one more added.

Swift is due to perform three more shows in Singapore’s National Stadium this week and then she gets a full two months off before traveling to France in May to continue her blockbuster Eras world tour, Page Six reported.
It’s certainly been an exhausting but exciting year for the 34-year-old pop megastar. Since launching her Eras tour last spring, Time magazine’s Person of the Year has been flying from city to city across the United States and around the world for performances and appearances at various awards shows, including the Grammys, where she won Album of the Year.
Swift also has traveled to different cities to attend 13 of her boyfriend Travis Kelce’s football games. She even made an epic dash from Tokyo to Las Vegas last month to watch his Kansas City Chiefs defeat the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl.
But if Swift’s performance Monday night left her fans worried about her well-being, her Sunday night show left them with good news. While Swift sat at her piano, an image of the fourth and final version of her upcoming album, The Tortured Poets Department, flashed on a screen behind her, People reported.
A fan post on X showed the an image, which revealed that the bonus track for this edition of the new version of the album is titled “The Black Dog.” Previously unseen artwork of Swift running her hands through her hair was also included in the image.
Swift also  shared the news on Instagram, alongside an image of the same artwork that appeared during her show.
