Taylor Swift Insured Her Legs For $40 Million

Taylor Swift Insured Her Legs For $40 Million

Taylor Swift reportedly insured her legs for the sum of $40 million, according to a new report from the National Enquirer. Apparently she has taken the measure because she feels that she will lose everything if she can’t dance on stage.

A source said, “It seems like a ludicrous sum, but if something was to happen to her legs, Taylor wouldn’t be able to give her signature stage performances. Her $200 million career would be in big trouble.”

The source went on to say, “If anything happened to her legs, Taylor wouldn’t be able to give her dynamic, signature stage performances. She thought her legs were possibly worth a million, but $40 million shocked her. She’s even a little embarrassed about it.”

Taylor’s team is taking care of all of the paperwork and the source added, “She wants it all sorted out before her world tour starts in May.”

This has yet to be confirmed by the singer or her team, so take it for what it is – gossip.

Just recently, Taylor’s ex-boyfriend John Mayer spoke out in support of her for pulling her music from Spotify. When speaking about her decision to pull her music, he said, “Artists need the person with the loudest voice to speak for them.”

He went on to say, “When you go to the Met Ball, that’s great. It’s a great way to use your voice and go, ‘I’m wearing Valentino,’ or you could use your voice to give things. Now, some people who are cynical could say, ‘You’re helping yourself.’ But it’s trickle down. You’re not saying, ‘I want this just for me.’ I think that’s a really cool thing for a musician to do.”

He added, “Like two percent of the music industry has eighty percent of all the media about it. There’s like four people who get all the press, and if any of those four people say, ‘I want to speak for those people who would just never make this a story’. The only reason we’re talking about Taylor Swift taking Spotify on is because she’s Taylor Swift! That’s great!”

Aloe Blacc Thinks Taylor Swift Was Wrong For Pulling Her Music From Spotify

Taylor Swift Steps Out In NYC

Music streaming is still a hot debate among musicians, fans and the services who are trying to serve them.  Taylor Swift made headlines when she pulled all of her music from Spotify last year.  Taylor is fed up with music being undervalued and given away for free when artists put a lot of time and money into creating it.  One artist who agrees with her, but only to a point, is Aloe Blacc.  Aloe’s hit song “Wake Me Up” received 168 million streams online but only made him and the other writers $12,000.  But he feels the good fight should be made in Congress.

He shared, “Musicians shouldn’t block their music… and probably shouldn’t remove their songs. We don’t want the fans to worry about a loss of service. We’re gonna fight our fights in Congress… you guys continue to enjoy the music. I’m sure things will change. Streaming services are the way forward… It’s just a matter of getting the laws to work for the songwriter and… for the artist.”’

Taylor’s explanation on her loathing of free streaming from last year, “In my opinion, the value of an album is, and will continue to be, based on the amount of heart and soul an artist has bled into a body of work, and the financial value that artists (and their labels) place on their music when it goes out into the marketplace. Piracy, file sharing and streaming have shrunk the numbers of paid album sales drastically, and every artist has handled this blow differently.   Music is art, and art is important and rare. Important, rare things are valuable. Valuable things should be paid for. It’s my opinion that music should not be free, and my prediction is that individual artists and their labels will someday decide what an album’s price point is. I hope they don’t underestimate themselves or undervalue their art.”

When it comes to streaming their music, artists earn on average less than one cent per play, between $0.006 and $0.0084, on Spotify.

I have to agree with Taylor here. Why should she leave her music on there, losing a ton of money, waiting for Congress to help out?  Remember WAY back in the day (for those of us over 30-ish) when you’d hear a great song on the radio and the only way to play it over and over was it to either go buy it at the store or wait for the station to play it so you could TRY to record it manually (which never sounded good).  Nowadays if I hear a great song that I have to have, I download it from iTunes.

Do you us streaming services?   Do you think music should be free to fans? Or should Congress decide how it should all work?
