Following her release on parole last week, Gypsy Rose Blanchard, 32, has opened up about how Taylor Swift's music provided solace and strength during her seven-year prison sentence. Blanchard, at the time 25, was jailed for her role in the 2015 murder of her mother, Dee Dee Blanchard.

In a recent interview, Blanchard expressed the profound impact Swift's music had on her while incarcerated. "Taylor's words got me through some of the darkest times," she said. "Her songs became my lifeline, a reminder that I wasn't alone."

Blanchard, a longtime fan of the pop star, revealed that she poured the money her father sent her into acquiring Swift's entire discography. "Every album held a different message, a story that resonated with my own struggles," she shared.

Beyond personal connection, Blanchard admires Swift's strength and resilience, calling her a "kick-ass chick." This admiration fuels her dream of meeting the singer-songwriter in person. While attending the upcoming Kansas City Chiefs game with her husband, who's a fan of Travis Kelce, Blanchard hopes to cross paths with Swift if she attends to support her partner. If not, she plans to attend the New Orleans leg of Swift's Eras Tour next fall.

Blanchard's story highlights the profound power of music as a source of strength and solace, even in the most challenging circumstances. Her journey of resilience and continued connection with Taylor Swift's music offers a glimpse into the transformative impact art can have on individuals even amidst personal trials.
