Most people get over breakups the old fashioned way. You know, with a pint of ice cream or raw chocolate chip cookie dough. Some of us may even hit the bottle or — on a more positive note — the gym for some cardio. Whatever gives us a fresh start is only bound to help, right?
Well it seems that Taylor Swift has taken that mentality to a whole new level following her breakup with musician Calvin Harris. Sure, she’s been seen hitting up the gym, but she’s also giving herself a fresh start in the form of a two-storey, $535,000 renovation of her New York City apartment.
Because you know… she can.
No word on exactly what T-Swift is changing to the the 6th floor and penthouse of the place, which she owns, but that’s a pretty darned hefty price tag if you ask us. Even heftier though is the crazy amount of money she’s dropping on her temporary abode until her new place is ready.
According to reports, the singer is spending $40,000 a month — that’s right, a month — on a New York apartment that has all the bells and whistles. Think an indoor swimming pool, five bedrooms, a two-storey deck, a garage and basement.
So let’s add that up, shall we? If she’s in her temporary place for a year at $40,000 a month, that’s a whopping $480,000 on rental expenses alone. Add in the $585,000 and you’re looking at $1,065,000 for the year. To get over a breakup?
Okay to be fair maybe she was planning on making some of these renos all along, and her newly single status just gave her the kick in the butt she needed to finally get stuff done. If this is to distract herself from getting over her ex, we have to say it must be nice to have money.
Either way, good for her. We wish we had an indoor pool. Heck we’d even take an inflatable one for the summer.
