Taylor Swift just paid off a fan's student loan
Share This Article:
Taylor Swift has just sealed her reputation as one of the nicest celebs EVER by wiping a fan’s student loan. According to People magazine, Taylor sent Rebekah Bortnicker a cheque for $1,989 after seeing a video that the student had made - starring Swift, plus various celeb friends set to the intro to Friends – online. Rebekah shared the news on Tumblr on Monday, and revealed that as well as the cheque the FedEx package also included a handwritten letter, as well as Polaroids, a watercolour painted by Taylor herself and various other gifts. Aww, Swifty! In the letter, according to The Huffington Post, Taylor wrote "Rebekah, now you're $1989 closer to paying off those student loans." (1989, of course, is a reference to the singer’s latest album – released in October 2014 – which is currently spending a ninth week at number one on the US’s Billboard chart.) Taylor is well known for sending her fans gifts so this (fairly generous) gesture of post-festive goodwill isn’t actually that out of character. Rebekah also posted images of the package on twitter, where it was retweeted nearly 200 times:
