Taylor Swift is currently on her highly-anticipated Eras Tour, which kicked off on March 17, 2023, in Glendale, Arizona. The tour has been gaining traction among fans and the media alike, and the excitement surrounding the tour is at an all-time high. Swift will be performing for three nights at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Florida, on April 13-15.While fans eagerly await her upcoming shows, the Mayor of Tampa, Jane Castor, has gone above and beyond to honor the pop sensation. Castor has extended an invitation to Swift to become an honorary mayor of the city for a day, much to the delight of Swifties all over the world.The City of Tampa took to Instagram to share a video of Castor presenting Swift with a key to the city. In the video, Castor said, “Mayor Swift has a nice ring to it.
We can’t wait to welcome you and your fans to Tampa (Taylor’s version).” This isn’t the first time that a city has gone all out for the artist. Glendale changed its name, Arlington created a street sign, and Las Vegas illuminated their Gateway Arches in honor of Swift.While most fans were thrilled with the news, some had different reactions. One fan suggested that Joe Biden should invite Swift to be the president for the remainder of his term. Another fan commented, “It’s her world, and we just live in it.” Yet another user pointed out how Swift’s tour was benefiting the cities where she performed. Hotels, motels, restaurants, bars, and other establishments are reaping profits due to the influx of tourists attending Swift’s concerts.
However, some netizens were not pleased with the prospect of Swift becoming an honorary mayor. One user criticized the move, calling it “the dumbest thing” they had ever heard. Another fan urged Swift to decline the offer, citing Florida’s restrictive laws that discriminate against the LGBTQ+ community.Regardless of the mixed reactions, Swift’s Eras Tour has been making waves across the country, and her performances have been nothing short of spectacular. As Swift continues to conquer the music industry and captivate audiences worldwide, one thing is for sure: the world can’t get enough of her.
