Taylor Swift Buys NYC Penthouse for Nearly $20 Million

By Andrea Dresdale

ABC/Richard HarbaughThere’s been much speculation over the past week as to whether or not Taylor Swift really laid out close to $20 million for a swanky New York City residence. Well, E! News has confirmed that the singer did, in fact, splash out on a fancy penthouse — two of them, in fact.

According to E!, Taylor spent $19.9 million to buy not one but two penthouse apartments in a building in New York’s trendy Tribeca neighborhood. Together, they total more than 8,000 square feet. By comparison, the mansion she purchased in Rhode Island last year for close to $18 million was just 3,000 square feet larger.

Taylor’s new Manhattan neighbors include Beyonce and Jay Z and Gwyneth Paltrow, according to E!. The singer’s been spotted out and about in the Big Apple over the last two weeks, shopping and hanging out with friends.

Despite owning residences in Los Angeles, Rhode Island and, now, New York, Taylor recently told Time magazine that Nashville, where she also owns a condo, will always be her real “home.” She says she likes it because she’s not bothered by paparazzi as she …read more

After Madonna Hometown Sign in Bay City, MI, Is a Madonna Statue Next?

By Andrea Dresdale

Madonna.comNow that Madonna‘s hometown of Bay City, Michigan has agreed to erect a sign in her honor, a statue of the Queen of Pop could be next.

According to MLive.com, a total of $650 in private funds so far has been raised to erect the green-and-white sign announcing Bay City as the birthplace of the superstar singer. It’ll welcome visitors who are traveling on U.S. Route 10. But since the goal of the sign is to “get people into town,” as the commissioner spearheading the plan explained, he wants to have something for them to see when they arrive. That’s where the statue idea comes in.

“When people go to Wall Street in New York, what do they do? They get their picture with the big bull,” Bay City Commissioner Christopher Girard told MLive.com. “We need something in town that people want to come and see and take their picture in front of.”

It’s not clear how soon the sign will be installed. Madonna was born in Bay City on August 16, 1958. In 1978, she moved to New York City; her first single, “Everybody,” was released …read more
