The newbie New Yorker doesn't have an overdue library book or anything, but promised the money to the schools when she dropped her hit song "Welcome to New York" from her 1989 album a few months ago. Because the track is all about their beloved city, her new home, she wanted the Big Apple to get all of the proceeds from it. Cool, right?
We're sure this will just make locals embrace her residency even more. She was just named "Global Welcome Ambassador" by the city's tourism organization.
As awesome as all of this is, of course, there are haters hating already. Many think Tay's made more money than $50,000 on the song...She promised ALL of the proceeds would go to the schools.
Either way, it's still super awesome that she's giving up any funds. She really doesn't have to. We're just going to add this to our on-going list of reasons why we adore Taylor.
