Taylor Swift Sends Longtime Fan $3,000 Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

Taylor Swift is continuing to send money to some of her biggest fans!

The 30-year-old “The Man” singer has been reaching out to help fans who are struggling during the ongoing health crisis.

On April 1, Taylor surprised Connecticut native and college sophomore Jess Buslewicz with $3,000.

Jess had to move home from college due to the pandemic, causing her to lose two of her jobs.

“I’ve had a Tumblr account that I’ve had for like six years now I think, and Taylor happens to follow it,” Jess told RADIO.COM’s Morning MAGIC with David, Sue, & Kendra of MAGIC 106.7. “I wasn’t on campus anymore so I couldn’t do two of my campus jobs which were babysitting and tour guide.”

“I basically just posted [on Tumblr] that I was very anxious about the times that were to come and she luckily saw it,” Jess continued. “One day I was sitting on the couch and I got a PayPal notification that there was $3,000 in my account!”

She added, “There’s a little message with it and at the end she said, ‘p.s. it may be April 1st but this is not an April Fools joke!’ and without that little addendum I think I would’ve been a lot more nervous that it was a joke.”

“I have a screenshot of the message and I’m definitely going to print it out and when I’m back at school and put it on my wall for everyone to see,” she said.

Taylor also reached out to Jess in 2018: “Since she followed my Tumblr account she also saw one of my post that my sister and I were going to the concert [at Gillette Stadium] and she had her team reach out to me and say that she would like to meet me before the concert because I’ve been such a longtime fan.”

“She was holding my hands the entire time I was talking to her, she wouldn’t stop making eye contact, she said that she loved us, and she thanked us for coming to meet her and that she was so glad we came,” Jess shared.

Taylor Swift Shares 'Hilarious' Way She's Staying in Touch With Loved Ones

Taylor Swift is getting candid about quarantine life!

The 30-year-old “The Man” singer chatted with the SiriusXM Hits 1 n chill “Home DJ” show on Friday (April 3).

“During this time I know that a lot of my friends and I have been doing a sort of weekly family FaceTime, which is always hilarious,” Taylor said. “I think it’s really important that we all stay connected because, you know, isolation doesn’t have to be an all encompassing thing. We may be all isolated physically but we can still keep in touch with people, we can still play games with our friends and families on our phones—that is one of the great things about modern technology.”

“So I hope you guys are doing a lot of self care in terms of staying connected to the people that remind you of home, even if the situation is strange and really confusing at this moment,” she continued.

She’s also been cooking, reading, and watching TV and movies: “A lot of people have been watching lots and lots of TV in this time of quarantine. I have actually been going back and watching old films that I hadn’t seen before. I went and watched – I actually hadn’t seen Rear Window and if you haven’t seen that film go check it out. It’s got Grace Kelly, it’s phenomenal, it’s [by] [Alfred] Hitchcock. So, yeah! I think that we can actually take this opportunity to not only just watch really cool guilty pleasure shows that are current but we can go back and kind of educate ourselves on films that were great in the past and still are.”

“But mostly I’ve been online trying to figure out how to help others,” Taylor Swift added. “And [I'm] just constantly in awe of our first responders and our emergency workers and our health care professionals who are putting themselves in danger every single day that they go to work. So shout-out to everyone who works in a medical profession and everybody who’s out there helping.”

Taylor Swift Helps Keep Small Nashville Record Store Afloat During Crisis Closure!

Taylor Swift is helping out a small business and its workers amid the current health crisis.

The 30-year-old Grammy-winning entertainer has supplied retailer Grimey’s New & Preloved Music, an independent record store in her hometown of Nashville, with a generous contribution to help out their employees during the shop’s pandemic closure.

The owners have confirmed that Taylor has gifted the store money for each employee and three months’ worth of health care.

“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 Rolling Stone. “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 Davis 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 added. “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.”

Just last week, Taylor also sent money to a fan in need – Read more here!

Taylor Swift is helping out a fan amid the current health crisis.

The 30-year-old entertainer sent $3,000 to a fan after she reached out on Tumblr where she said she worried about continuing to live in New York City due to lack of work.

“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
then attached a screenshot of a $3,000 notification from Taylor Nation, LLC, along with the message, “Holly, You’ve always been there for me. I want to be there for you now. I hope this helps. Love, Taylor.”


Ariana Grande
has also been secretly doing the same. It has been revealed that the 26-year-old “7 Rings” singer has been sending between $500 and $1,000 through Venmo to more than 20 fans as they struggle with the government-forced shutdowns.

“She reached out and took care of my salary for the month,” one fan shared with Page Six.

Taylor and Ariana aren’t the only two sending money to fans amid this crisis. These two other entertainers have also been sending money through cash apps.

Todrick Hall Goes Off on Kim Kardashian Over Taylor Swift Statements: 'You Self Absorbed, Stubborn Little Queef'

Todrick Hall went off on Kim Kardashian in a series of posts about the Taylor Swift “Famous” phone call leak. Todrick obviously saw Kim‘s response to the new leak, where she called Taylor a liar.

“I CANNOT STAND THIS WOMAN! Kim Kardashian posted these on her story, and clearly is still missing the point,” Todrick wrote in a series of now-deleted posts.

“1. Taylor didn’t reignite anything, Kris probably leaked this footage her damn self. 2. After your Ray J video and publicly documenting every crevice of your vagina … I HIGHLY doubt that you’re embarrassed NOW to respond to this….3. Just apologize, you self absorbed, entitled, stubborn little queef.”

“She was CLEARLY uncomfortable with the situation & after you publicly embarrass someone TWICE on national television, I think these calls should be going through management or some legit form of professional contact,” Todrick continued.

“Would it be SOOO difficult for her to just say ‘I’m sorry Taylor. I didn’t think about the fact that we didn’t tell you you were being recorded,’” he continued. “‘We called you out of the blue asking you to promote my husbands music THAT ISN’T YOURS after he’s acted like a damn good in front of millions and hasn’t publicly apologized. I don’t make music and I never thought of how this put an even larger target on your back than there already was and for that I apologize. Hope we can be friends in the future.’”

Khloe Kardashian Makes It Clear She's Supporting Kim Kardashian in Taylor Swift Feud

Khloe Kardashian is supporting her older sister Kim Kardashian in the ongoing Taylor Swift feud – and she made that very clear in a series of tweets.

Khloe posted a few tweets after Kim fired back at Taylor and called her a liar on Monday night (March 23) after the full “Famous” phone call leaked.

“@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 said. “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.”

Well, Khloe saw these tweets and posted on her own Twitter moments later.

“I was about to go take my ass to sleep but then I just saw my sister post a couple tweets. ♥️ ♥️ ♥️ ♥️ Kimberly you betta!!!!!!!!!!!♥️♥️♥️♥️,” Khloe tweeted.

Kim is my f*cking lawyer for life!!!!!! My sister AND my lawyer,” she added.

Taylor Swift's Publicist Reacts to Kim Kardashian Saying the Singer 'Lied Through Her Publicist'

Tree Paine, who has been Taylor Swift‘s publicist for years, is speaking out in response to Kim Kardashian saying that the singer “lied through her publicist.”

Over the weekend, the 2016 phone call between Taylor and Kanye West, in which he asked her to launch his song “Famous,” was leaked online in its entirety. In the past, we had only seen short clips that were released by Kim.

When the song was released, Taylor was upset that Kanye called her a “b-tch” and after it was reported that the rapper got her approval for the lyrics, Tree released a statement denying that the phone call was to get her approval. Months later when the feud was reignited, Kim posted clips of the phone call online.

In her statement released on Monday night (March 23), Kim said, “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. Nobody ever denied the word ‘b-tch’ was used without her permission.”

Tree spoke out soon after and reshared her original statement with the following message: “I’m Taylor’s publicist and this is my UNEDITED original statement. Btw, when you take parts out, that’s editing. P.S. who did you guys piss off to leak that video? 😂 😂 😂.”

See how Taylor reacted to the leak of the phone call.
