Taylor Swift Donates $4M Music Education

tayhair


Taylor Swift has donated $4 million to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, reports Billboard. It is the largest given to the museum by an artist and is the second largest from an individual. It will fund the Taylor Swift Education Center, an exhibit and classroom space scheduled to open in 2014.

Museum director: ‘In terms of what it will allow us to do, we do education very well now. It will allow us to do what we do better, serve more people, develop new programs and I’m happy to say that as we talked through this opportunity with Taylor, she very much wants to be involved in an advisory capacity in what we do. Is there a better person out there who’s in touch with a young audience? I think not. I was joking we should be paying her to do that. I was only joking.’

The 7,500 square foots space will include three classrooms and exhibit space along with a musical petting zoo and a ‘wet’ classroom space to make concert posters and other art projects.

    good for you, Taylor!

    It’s nice to hear that she’s giving back to the community. That’s one thing you can’t take away from her :)

    AMAZING!! Could have donated 1 million or 2 million but 4 million thats incredible! Celebrities do make HUGE money but Taylor does work hard to hers. Nice though to be able to use your fame and money to help others. And on another note I think many of Joe’s ex’s were beautiful and amazing young girls and it was his big loss!!

    Looks like taytay needs a tax deduction. Either that or she’s trying to Miley out by building a school for demoralized hasbeens to resurrect their careers. Taytay is so sweet. Yay. She and Selena are such good friends and angels to Miley, supporting her career like that.

    I’ll never really understand how people can HATE her. Dislike? Maybe, sure, you’re bound to come across people that you don’t care for. But hate? Whyyy? She’s humble, sweet, intelligent, and just very… charming. She doesn’t talk too fast or interrupt people, she’s never ill mannered, and she doesn’t act like she’s a millionaire who can do whatever she wants. Good morals are so hard to find in people these days.

    That’s what I wondered. Fuck if I know. She may as well have just deleted her twitter along with it.

    I don’t think they’ve broken up, they would have unfollowed each other on Twitter.
    Anyway, she doesn’t tweet much, soo..

    Yeah, it’s just become endorsing and advertisement for her anyway. I don’t go to her twitter for validity on things.

    Doubt it. 16-year-old Selly would just tweet cynical heartbroken lyrics, or announce a junk food party with her cousin and Taylor.

    Taylor Swift made me think of the user Disco.Is.Dead which is a bit of an ironic coincidence cause the queen of disco: Donna Summer has passed… RIP

    I don’t think she would have deleted her twitter, I think she would have unfollowed him because she did that with Nick. At this point in her career I doubt she would do that that’s what I mean.

    Ok wtf? I’m a huge Taylor fan I love tht girl.
    But saving people lives by donating money to them is MUCH MORE IMPORTANT THAN GIVING 4 MILLION FUCK DOLLARS to not even normal school but freakin music schools. WTF is wrong with people. People are starving and shit and she goes off and donates to fuckin music schools. We have enough talented people in this worlf that could become succesful without a music school while on the other hand we have millions of people starving to death here in Africa. Seriously you some people are just so naive. I love you Taylor but c’mon you should have donated all this money to something much more important. Forget Africa, there is alot of poverty in America too! Think girl, don’t be naive.

    Again, Taylor has given many donations; this is just one of them. So calm yourself, and again, understand that it is Taylor’s money to decide what to do with, and if she wants to help children with music education in addition to hunger and disaster relief, she has every right to do so.

    Taylor should be every young girls’ role model <3

  • l?veislouder

    Wow, amazing. What an inspiration.
    Say what you want about her music, may it not be your style or whatever, but you cannot say this girl is not a good person with a good heart, and in the end, that’s all that matters.

    You’re clearly one of those people who are the reason we’re losing the arts in schools. Music and art aren’t “less important” or should be disregarded; clearly, it does some people some good, or Taylor wouldn’t have the $4 million ready to donate. Shut up. Taylor has donated to other charities before, this is just one of them, and it’s her money to decide what to do with.
    You really can’t please everyone, even with such a grand act of kindness -___-
