Singapore persuaded Taylor Swift not to tour Southeast Asia. A Philippine congressman condemns it.  

Taylor Swift began her six-night, sold-out The Eras Tour stopover in Singapore on Saturday.  

Due to an exclusive agreement, it will be her last performance in Southeast Asia.  

A Philippine congressman slammed the decision, saying it "isn't what good neighbors do."  

There is a feud between Singapore and surrounding government authorities, and it's all because of Taylor Swift.  

Ahead of the pop star's six sold-out gigs in the city-state, which begin on Saturday, a Philippine politician has challenged the exclusive agreement that Singaporean officials apparently struck with her to ensure that she did not take The Eras Tour to other territories in the region.  

On Wednesday, Philippines representative Joey Salceda urged the Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) to protest the grant approved by the Singapore  

government in exchange for Swift agreeing not to perform elsewhere in Southeast Asia during her sold-out world tour, according to local media.  

"The Singapore government allegedly gave AEG $3 million in grants to host the concert in Singapore." The hitch was that they didn't host it elsewhere in the region," Salceda told The Straits Times.
