Taylor Swift Pays For Nashville Record Store's Employees Salaries & Health Care

Taylor Swift is giving back even more!

The 30-year-old songstress is notorious for helping out fans in times of need, and now she’s doing it for an entire store.

Taylor has generously supplying Grimey’s New & Preloved Music store with money for each employee and three months’ worth of health care, a source confirmed to Rolling Stone.

“We were very surprised, and I would have to say amazed, that Taylor Swift reached out to us through her publicist to offer some relief during the COVID-19 pandemic,” Grimey’s co-owner Doyle Davis told the publication. “I didn’t even know we were on her radar, but she really stepped up to help after the recent tornadoes that struck Nashville and middle Tennessee, and now she’s trying to help a beloved small business in her city.”

Taylor generously offered some direct relief to my staff and to cover three months of our health care costs for our group-insurance plan,” Doyle continued. “It’s a huge deal to us, and now I have some peace of mind as we apply for [Small Business Association] loans to pay rent, vendors, and other expenses. This assistance from Ms. Swift helps give us a real shot at coming back on the other side of this.”

“It’s incredibly heartening and totally surreal that Taylor Swift has offered to help us out in such a significant way,” Grimey’s buyer Will Orman said. “With so much uncertainty about what lies ahead, we’re deeply grateful to be able to look forward to returning to the store and continuing to share music and connect with our community, thanks to Taylor’s generous support.”

“I made a post on tumblr about how I was scared I wouldn’t be able to stay living in NYC because of what corona has done to the music industry,” Holly Turner wrote on Twitter. “@taylorswift13 literally single-handedly saved my ability to stay here. I cannot even believe my eyes right now.”

Holly

Kim Kardashian Called Taylor Swift a Liar & The Singer's Publicist Responded

Kim Kardashian Called Taylor Swift a Liar & The Singer's Publicist Responded

Kim Kardashian is making sure people know her side of the story in her reignited feud with Taylor Swift, which is now big news again after the singer’s phone call with Kanye West leaked in its entirety over the weekend. T‘s publicist has something to say in response though!

You probably remember that Kim leaked excerpts of the phone call in 2016 to try and prove Taylor knew about a line referencing her in Kanye‘s song “Famous.” Fast forward to nearly four years later, Taylor felt vindicated when the full phone call was released and it proved her side of the story.

Kim released the below statement on Monday night (March 23) on her Instagram Stories:

“@taylorswift has chosen to reignite an old exchange – that at this point in time feels very self-serving given the suffering millions of real victims are facing right now. I didn’t feel the need to comment a few days ago, and I’m actually really embarrassed and mortified to be doing it right now, but because she continues to speak on it, I feel I’m left without a choice but to respond because she is actually lying,” Kim wrote on her Instagram Stories.

“To be clear, the only issue I ever had around the situation was that Taylor lied through her publicist who stated that ‘Kanye never called to ask for permission…’ They clearly spoke so I let you all see that,” Kim added. “Nobody ever denied the word ‘bitch’ was used without her permission. At the time when they spoke the song had not been fully written yet, but as everyone can see in the video, she manipulated the truth of their actual conversation in her statement when her team said she ‘declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message.’”

“The lie was never about the word bitch, It was always whether there was a call or not and the tone of the conversation,” Kim continued. “I never edited the footage (another lie) – I only posted a few clips on Snapchat to make my point and the full video that recently leaked doesn’t change the narrative.”

“To add, Kanye as an artist has every right to document his musical journey and process, just like she recently did through her documentary. Kanye has documented the making of all of his albums for his personal archive, however has never released any of it for public consumption and the call between the two of them would have remained private or would have gone in the trash had she not lied and forced me to defend him,” she said.

“This will be the last time I speak on this because honestly, nobody cares. Sorry to bore you all with this. I know you are all dealing with more serious and important matters,” Kim concluded.

Taylor Swift Comments on Leaked Phone Call With Kanye West

Taylor Swift has decided not to speak out about the Kanye West phone call that was recently leaked but is turning it into any opportunity to do a good deed.

The 30-year-old singer took to her Instagram Stories, letting fans know she heard about the footage and urged them to take part in something that really matters.

“Instead of answering those who are asking how I feel about the video footage that leaked, proving that I was telling the truth the whole time about *that call* (you know, the one that was illegally recorded, that somebody edited and manipulated in order to frame me and put me, my family, and fans through hell for 4 years)…SWIPE UP to see what really matters,” Taylor wrote on her story.

Fans who swiped up on the post were led to a Feeding America donation page.

She continued, “The World Health Organization and Feeding America are some of the organizations I’ve been donating to. If you have the ability to, please join me in donating during this crisis.”

“While we’re looking for things to do at home, I thought it’d be fun to share behind the scenes of my dad’s acting debut. 🎾,” she captioned it.

“Basically I started pelting my dad with tennis balls, which was, I think, exhilarating for both of us,” Taylor says in the clip. “I think it was a real bonding experience.”

“He’s pretty proud of himself,” she added. “I’ve never been prouder of his acting skills, which, who knew he had a passion for it. I didn’t know. He’s gonna start auditioning now.”

Taylor Swift & Kanye West's Full 'Famous' Phone Call Leaks Online

Taylor Swift‘s infamous phone call with Kanye West has leaked online in full.

If you recall, in 2016, Kim Kardashian leaked the phone call between her husband and the “The Man” singer, trying to prove that Taylor knew about a line referencing her in his song “Famous.”

Kanye says on the track, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that b-tch famous.”

Taylor said that she was aware of the first part of the lyric, but she would never have approved of him calling her a b-tch. Now, a video of the full phone call has leaked online proving that Kanye never mentioned that part of the song to Taylor.

When Kanye West did tell Taylor about the “I feel like me and Taylor may still have sex” lyric and asked for her approval, she said, “I need to think about it. When you hear something for the first time you need to think about it, because it is absolutely crazy.”

Make sure to read Taylor Swift‘s full statement about the “character assassination” she experienced when the edited video was released four years ago.

“I’m seriously impressed that whenever you are in an immediate or stressful situation you fly into action. Is that something that’s always been natural for you?” Taylor asked in the Harper’s Bazaar interview.

Gigi responded, “I’ve realized over time that I feel the most free when I express myself, whether through action, writing, or talking it out. Being honest always leads to something good, even if it takes a hard or awkward moment or conversation to get there; you can never go wrong with telling someone how you feel and speaking your truth. And you always learn something from it.”
