Taylor Swift Turns Down Fan’s Prom Invite, Offers to Take Him to the ACM Awards
T-Swift made headlines last week when word got out that one of her fans — a cancer-stricken teen by the name of Kevin McGuire — invited her to his high school prom. On Friday, Taylor turned down a trip to the prom, which coincidentally falls on McGuire’s birthday, and instead proposed an alternative plan.
“Kevin, I’m so sorry but I won’t be able to make it to your prom,” Swift wrote on her Facebook page, “But I was wondering, the ACM Awards are coming up.. Would you be my date?”
“I don’t know what else to say,” he told Philadelphia’s CBS 3 upon hearing the new. “I was just trying not to throw up!”
“I have cancer. Cancer doesn’t have me,” he added. “Taylor, I would love to go with you.”
