Taylor Swift is not a typical 20-something! She donated half a million dollars to help the citizens of Nashville!

As if she needed to be any more impressive, country cutie Taylor Swift has donated a whopping $500,000 to help flood relief efforts in Nashville, TN. Wow, thanks for giving back Taylor!!

According to the AP, “The money will go directly to various flood relief organizations in the city rocked by deadly storms and flooding that killed 30 in three states, including 20 in Tennessee.”

Taylor moved to Nashville when she was 14, and considers it her home. She told the AP, “Being at home during the storm, I honestly could not believe what was happening to the city and the people I love so dearly. Nashville is my home, and the reason why I get to do what I love. I have always been proud to be a Nashvillian, but especially now, seeing the love that runs through this city when there are people in crisis.”

Clean-up and repair costs are estimated to reach over $1 billion. The music community in Nashville have all been “giving their time and money to the effort,” says the report.

During a telethon, which aired on a local Nashville network, Keith UrbanBrad Paisley, Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, Rodney Atkins and other stars played live from the Ryman Auditorium. The telethon will air on cable network GAC on May 16.

i hate to be so petty and detract from her good deed, but, it’s time for her to get a new ‘grown-up’ style. she doesn’t need to get tarted-out, but that dress and necklace are just too much. she’s too old for those 6yr old girl outfits. sorry, i like her, but she is in need of an age appropriate makeover.

She looks exactly like every other high school and college girl I know.
She always looks adorable and sophisticated.

maybe adorable, but i def disagree with sophisticated. also, SHE’S A STAR! she’s not supposed to look like every other teenager! but, long story short, if that’s just the “in” look these days, and i’m getting old, hallelujah, b/c i find it so BORING and would rather slit my wrists than dress like that for YEARS like she has been doing!!!
