Taylor Swift is always looking out for her fans. On Friday, Nov. 17, the singer paused her Rio de Janeiro concert in order to address an emergency in the crowd. After hearing fans shout for water, Swift asked security to fix the issue before she returned to performing. At one point, she even threw a water bottle to a fan herself. According to USA Today, temperatures in the city neared 100 degrees, as Brazil is currently experiencing its late spring.
