Taylor Swift has endorsed Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the upcoming presidential election.

Ahead of the vice presidential debate on Wednesday, the country-pop music superstar made her stand clear in an interview with V Magazine.

"The change we need most is to elect a president who recognizes that people of color deserve to feel safe and represented, that women deserve the right to choose what happens to their bodies, and that the LGBTQIA+ community deserves to be acknowledged and included," Swift said in the magazine's Thought Leaders Issue.

She added, "Everyone deserves a government that takes global health risks seriously and puts the lives of its people first. The only way we can begin to make things better is to choose leaders who are willing to face these issues and find ways to work through them."

Swift, who had largely stayed out of politics before 2018, has become more vocal about her political views in recent years.

Swift disclosed her pro-Democratic political views for the first time during 2018 Senate election, endorsing former Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen.

Joe Biden thanked Swift for her endorsement on Twitter.

Swift, a critic of President Donald Trump, also called on her fans to vote for Biden's running mate Kamala Harris.
