Taylor Swift has responded to critics after topping the list of celebrities taking the most private flights.
The ‘Shake It Off’ hitmaker has been accused of harming the environment after his jet flew 170 times between January 1 and July 19, 2022.
Research collected by the yard showed that 32-year-old Taylor spent more than 22,000 minutes in the air – the equivalent of 16 days – but a representative of the star claimed he was not solely responsible for emissions.
He told Rolling Stone: “Taylor’s jets are regularly loaned out to other individuals. It is absolutely wrong to attribute most or all of these trips to him.”
The research alleges that celebrities including former boxer Floyd Mayweather, legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg and talk show legend Oprah Winfrey are to blame for harming the planet.
Meanwhile, Taylor confessed that she went through a “very tough time” during her public feud with music mogul Scooter Braun.
The pop star was involved in a public feud with Braun after he bought her previous catalog in a big money deal and reportedly banned her from performing her hit live.
Taylor lifted the lid on tough times during a talk at a New York screening of her new film All Too Well: The Short Film, saying of the feud: “It was a very difficult time for me. My hardest time was extreme grief or sadness. Moments and moments of loss are what my life looks like now.”
Swift directed the project — which stars Dylan O’Brien and Sadie Sink — and claims it marked a new chapter in her career.
She told the audience: “(It’s) getting out of work that I usually do, which is writing songs and singing them… It was a vulnerable moment where you prepare to discover something new. And you’re really hoping you’ll do everything perfectly. It’s also important to remind yourself that you shouldn’t do everything perfectly because you need to learn and grow.”
