Taylor Swift has responded to critics after she topped a list of celebrities who have taken the most private flights.
The ‘Shake It Off’ hitmaker has been accused of damaging the environment after her jet flew 170 times between January 1 and July 19 2022.
The research gathered by Yard revealed that Taylor, 32, spent more than 22,000 minutes in the air – the equivalent of 16 days – but a representative for the star claimed she is not solely responsible for the emissions.
They told Rolling Stone: “Taylor’s jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals. To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect.”
The research alleges that other celebrities are guilty of damaging the planet, including the former boxer Floyd Mayweather, legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg and talk show legend Oprah Winfrey.
Meanwhile, Taylor confessed that she went through a “very hard time” during her public feud with music mogul Scooter Braun.
The pop star was involved in a public row with Braun after he purchased her back catalog in a big-money deal and allegedly placed restrictions on her performing her hits live.
Taylor lifted the lid on the troubled time during a talk at a New York screening of her new film ‘All Too Well: The Short Film’ and said of the feud: “It was a very hard time for me. A lot of my hardest moments and moments of extreme grief or loss were galvanized into what my life looks like now.”
Swift directed the project – which stars Dylan O’Brien and Sadie Sink – and claims that it marked a new chapter in her career.
She told the audience: “(This is) me stepping out of what I usually do, which is writing songs and singing them … It was a vulnerable moment where you’re sort of on the precipice of finding something new and you’ I’m just really hoping you do everything perfectly. It is also important to remind yourself you shouldn’t do everything perfectly because you need to learn and grow.”
