Guess all that time in the gym has paid off! The singer insured her stems for quite a sum before heading out on her world tour
Taylor Swift’s may have made her name off the power of her voice, but it doesn’t hurt that the girl knows how to strut a stage (or catwalk, or sidewalk…). And now she’s safeguarding the most crucial asset to this. Yes, TSwift has insured her legs. For a whopping $40 million.
As she preps for her world tour promoting her latest album, 1989, the 25-year-old wanted to cover her assets, and make sure that if anything were to happen to her legs that would keep her from performing (knock on wood), she would be covered financially. (Smart! Cover your own back with these 16 Money Rules Every Woman Should Know by Age 30.)
While insuring a body part sounds crazy, it seems Tay is just following in the responsible footsteps of her famed predecessors. Mariah Carey insured her legs for $1 billion when she was under contract with Gillette, Jennifer Lopez took out $27 million in coverage for her booty, and Julia Roberts insured her sparkling smile for an cool $30 million. But TSwift’s legs are apparently valued higher than even Rihanna’s, whose stems are insured for $1 million, and supermodel Heidi Klum, whose legs are covered for $2.2 million.
While we’d be willing to argue her pipes (or red lips) are her most valuable asset, after blending in seamlessly among the models at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show two years in a row (and, of course, there's that whole needing them to perform part), we can see where she’s coming from.
While not much is known about Taylor's actual workout routine (although she has confessed her Get-Gorgeous, Post-Workout Trick), we certainly know a few ways for you to score sexy stems. The Ultimate Long, Lean Legs Workout or this Killer Buns and Thighs workout will give you a lower half ready for short shorts.
