Taylor Swift shared some unfortunate news on her Tumblr today (April 9): her mother has been diagnosed with cancer.

The pop singer’s usually bubbly Tumblr account was pervaded by the news, Swift explaining that they found out about the diagnosis after she urged her mom to get a routine health check last Christmas.
