Country star turned pop star, Taylor Swift, has donated $50,000 to New York City public schools, and has indicated that there is more where that came from. The proceeds come from the sales of her song, “Welcome to New York.” Swift had pledged last Fall, during an appearance on “The View,” that she would be donating all proceeds from the song to the city’s schools. The transplant recently purchased a $20 million apartment in Tribeca.
The generous donation is receiving mixed reviews, however, with some making the argument that it’s not enough. The singer is worth an estimated $200 million, and the song has allegedly made closer to $125,000. The New York Education department has been nothing but appreciative of Swift’s donation though, and honestly, why wouldn’t they be? I for one am hoping she will write a tune about LA next, and throw our schools a few pennies as well…
In other news- Swifty is all grown up. How fierce did she look at the BRIT Awards that were held in London earlier today? That dress is kinda hot…. It helps that she’s about 7 feet tall.
