One of the best things about being successful--you're not only able to afford nice things for yourself, you can treat the ones you love, too. And Taylor Swift is certainly enjoying this perk...in a big way! She just purchased her mom and dad a beautiful new home in Nashville.
US Weekly reported on Thursday that Swift's parents, Scott and Andrea, are currently enjoying the 5000-square-foot 1920s estate, which boasts three bedrooms and was recently renovated to include modern features such as an outdoor fireplace. The cost? A cool $1.4 million. (I'd say she doesn't have to worry about gifts for Mother's and Father's Day this year!)
Don't worry, though. Swift has plenty of money left to spoil herself. According to a source, she's also purchased a new pad in Los Angeles for her own use. Reportedly, she decided to pull the trigger due to frequent trips to the city and "paying a fortune in hotel charges."
Swift already owns a luxurious penthouse condominium in midtown Nashville, so it's safe to say she's going to be pretty comfortable whether she's on the West Coast or in the Southeast. Hey, she's a hardworking girl--and nice to her mom and dad! I'd say she deserves it.
The singer is also no doubt celebrating the news this week that she's been nominated for seven 2011 Billboard Music Awards, including the all-genre categories of Top Artist, Top Female Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, and Top Billboard 200 Album. The Billboard Awards will air live on ABC May 22nd at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
