“When this song originally took shape it was without a doubt massively influenced by Blink-182, so when the idea came up to do a remix of sorts for it, Mark was immediately who we pictured. We sent him the track with no second verse and said to do whatever he was inspired to do and what he sent back genuinely makes the song for me. My younger self still can’t believe it exists.”

Taylor then responded with the following:

“I don’t like people airing private shit like a child. So this is all I’ll say: I didn’t do the track because I don’t like when people try to ‘write’ for me. I said NO to THEM. So without further ado…. #receipts This is all I’m going to say about it.”

“basically, your verse was really bad. respectfully, i was just telling you to rewrite it because it was really bad. respectfully. 😕 but let’s do a britney spears song cover together 🤘🏼”

Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus Reveals The Type Of Cancer He Is Battling

During a recent livestream on Twitch, Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus further opened up about his battle with cancer. The musician also revealed that he was diagnosed with stage 4-A Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, which is the same type of cancer his mother previously beat.

Hoppus said the following:

“It’s entered enough parts of my body that I’m stage 4, which is, I think the highest that it goes.”

He also discussed an upcoming PET scan, which will reveal if his chemotherapy treatments are working:

“Ideally I go in tomorrow and they say, ‘Congratulations! Your chemotherapy has worked and you are all done and you’ll never have to think about this cancer again for the rest of your life.’ Even if the cancer’s totally gone from my whole body, they give me three more rounds of chemo just to make sure.”

Hoppus went on to describe the side effects that the chemotherapy has had on him:

“The first chemo, I felt like I was a zombie that fell onto an electric fence and was just being shocked… The second round of chemo, I just felt very weak and tired. Really just like the worst flu ever. The third round of chemo, I started retching. Nauseous and that whole thing.”

“Let me tell you something that is real, and it absolutely sucks — a side effect of the chemotherapy is you get something called ‘chemo brain.’ And for me, I forget things that I just should have on call like people’s names, song titles, anything.”

Despite his diagnosis, the musician says he is trying to remain positive:

“We’re beating this cancer. It’s just a matter of time.”
