Taylor Swift Donates $500,000 for Nashville Flood

Taylor Swift is donating $500,000 to flood relief in Nashville, which will go directly to various flood relief organizations in the city (the flooding killed 30 in three states).

“Being at home during the storm, I honestly could not believe what was happening to the city and the people I love so dearly,” the 20-year-old country cutie told The Associated Press via e-mail. “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.”

Added Taylor, “Please keep Nashville in your heart. Seeing a picture of the Grande Ole Opry halfway underwater was a kind of heartbreak I can’t describe.” (T-Swift moved to Nashville when she was 14.)

On June 16th, Ke$ha, a Nashville native and resident, will perform during a special flood benefit concert in Nashville.

@Ok Then: She lives in Nashville now and obviously considers it her home. I was born in London, but I grew up in Kansas, so I consider myself a Kansan. I imagine Swift feels the same way, but about Nashville. Where she was actually born doesn’t really matter. Home is where the heart is, as they saying goes.

you guyz are freakin idiots , be happy that she donated something unlike some other rich people , it’s not about her it’s about nashville and who the hell cares if she said that stupid idiots!
