Late last week, Swift donated $500,000 to the victims of the Nashville flood during a local relief telethon. Taylor was at her home in Tennessee when the flood hit and was overwhelmed with the devastation.
“It was the craziest thing I’ve ever seen,” said Swift. “I was at my house in Hendersonville, we were staring out the window, thinking it didn’t seem like rain. It just seemed like something in a movie. It was really emotional for me because those are the streets I learned to drive on. People’s houses are just ruined. It was so heartbreaking to see that in my town, the place that I call home, and the place that I feel most safe.” She went on to say, “I just send my love to my friends and my neighbors who got hit harder than I did.”
We’re happy to hear that some of our favorite stars are getting involved in the relief effort; our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the horrible disaster.
