Pop superstar Taylor Swift poses for the media during an event.
Amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis and lockdown, pop superstar Taylor Swift has stepped in to pay salary and healthcare for employees at a vintage record store near her home in Nashville.
The superstar's publicist contacted Grimey's New & Preloved Music with an offer to pay the salaries and healthcare costs for staff during the next three months. It happened when the store got shut when the city's mayor issued a state at home order.
"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," rollingstone.com quoted Grimey's co-owner Doyle Davis as saying.
"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," Davis added.
He continued: "Taylor generously offered some direct relief to my staff and to cover three months of our health care costs for our group-insurance plan. It's a huge deal to us, and now I have some peace of mind as we apply for (Small Business Administration) 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 said, adding: "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."
Swift has also donated to Feeding America and the World Health Organization and requested her fans support the organisations amid the ongoing health crisis.
"It has 26 songs, including 6 never before released from the vault. Love Story (Taylor's Version) will be out tonight," @Taylorswift13 said on Twitter.
The pop beauty took to her official social media account to announce to fans that she has started re-recording her old albums already.
The statement said Swift's US and Brazil shows will take place next year, explaining that tickets for those shows "will transfer to a new show date without action on the part of ticket holders." The new dates will be announced this year,
Amid the coronavirus pandemic many people around the world have been struggling to make ends meet. Pop star and icon Taylor Swift recently helped two women who have been struggling financially due to the coronavirus.
When a fan told her that he wanted to groove with her to her famous Saami Saami song from 'Pushpa: The Rise' , Rashmika said she's danced 'too many times' to the song, so much so that she could face back problems when she got older!
