How Taylor Swift Spends Her $320 Million on Luxury Mansions and Lavish Vacations
With all of the mosts, bests, and firsts she has received throughout her career, Taylor Swift has become more than a girl with wild golden curls and a broken hearted woman singing songs about failed relationships and dates. She did not just capture the hearts of many but also built her own empire by becoming one of the performance industry’s top earners. Forbes reported Swift’s net worth to be $320 million for 2018. This also earned her a spot as one of the youngest in Forbes’ list for the richest self-made woman, which also includes Oprah Winfrey, Sheryl Sandberg, Barbra Streisand, and Kylie Jenner.
Pop Star Makes History
In 2017, despite taking a break from the limelight, Swift still earned $44 million, ranking number 9 in that year’s list of highest-earning celebrities around the world. In the same year, Guinness World Records also recognized her for having the highest annual earnings ever for a female pop star.
Dubbed as America’s Sweetheart, she made history once again last year with her latest Reputation Stadium Tour which became the highest-grossing tour in the U.S. history. With a tour earnings totalling at $266 million, Swift had bested her contemporaries with just 38 shows. This record surpassed The Rolling Stones’ A Bigger Bang Tour from 2005 to 2007, which ran for 70 shows.
If that’s still not enough, Swift even snatched a $200-million record deal with Universal Music Group’s Republic Records after leaving her long-time record label, Big Machine Label, late last year and announced on Instagram that she will be working with UMG and Republic giants, Lucian Grainge and Monte Lipman in the future.
Aside from a multimillion record deal and concerts, the pop cynosure also partnered with different brands to rake in more dough. These brands include Diet Coke, Keds, CoverGirl, and Apple. Swift also partners with several brands during her tours, which made her bank account fatter again.
Real Estate Darling
According to reports, the “1989” singer has invested $84 million in real estate with eight properties from coast to coast, with the cheapest amounting to almost $2.5 million, proving that the international country singer-turned-pop star is also a daring darling in real estate. In Nashville, Tennessee, where the singer and composer started her career as a country singer, Swift owned two properties — one is an apartment in Music Row while the other is a 1934 Greek Revival estate she purchased in 2011.
Her 3,240-square-foot condo was her real estate venture at the age of 20. Its estimated value is at $3 million, which boasts its floor-to-ceiling windows and industrial-inspired interiors. According to interviews, Swift designed the three-bedroom corner duplex’s decors that are seemingly fitting to the “Delicate” songstress’ image — “Romeo and Juliet”-inspired balconies, life-size topiary rabbits, ceilings decorated with gathered silk, and wooden birdcages — whimsical, romantic and very “Alice in the Wonderland”-ish.
While her condo is her real-life wonderland, her Greek Revival home is her paradise in Nashville. Regardless of being the cheapest among Swift’s real estate portfolio, the property has a 5,600-square foot main house with four bedrooms, a pool, and a 2,000-square-foot guesthouse.
Moving to the west coast, Swift had three properties in Los Angeles. One of her properties, in which she called her “cottage,” a 1.5-acre property with a 2,800-square-foot main house in Beverly Hills, was sold for $4 million in 2018. Another is also on the market with an estimated value of $2.85 million, which is at 2,950-square-foot in size and complete with floor-to-ceiling glass, skylights, a private courtyard, and a temperature-controlled wine cellar housing 1,000 bottles.
Her most expensive property, also in Beverly Hills, is a 1934 mansion previously owned by Hollywood film producer Samuel Goldwyn. The $30-million mansion measures 10,982 square foot with a Georgian Revival architecture. Swift plans on making this property a historical landmark and to restore the multimillion-worth property to its original structure.
On the east coast, Swift is best known for her seaside parties with her squad on her property on Rhode Island. Her 12,000-square-foot mansion is valued at $6.6 million, has seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, and a priceless view of Block Island Sound and Montauk Point.
In Tribeca, New York City, the “Love Story” singer bought two adjacent penthouses in 2014. The 8,300-square-foot properties were renovated to be a large duplex with 10 bedrooms and bathrooms. Swift also bought a four-story townhouse in the same neighborhood, complete with a theater, gym, a guest room, and luxurious natural lighting on the first floor.
