Paid In Full!

Taylor Swift has been seen in the last few weeks shopping for property in Rhode Island and it appears she has settled on a mansion officially listed at $20million.

But the pop singer is apparently a savvy negotiator and got the new home for much less than its asking price.

Taylor is said to have purchased the property in full for $17.75million with a single payment via wire transfer.

Real estate insiders told the gossip website that movers were seen as early as Saturday at the beachfront property, located in the upmarket seaside community of Watch Hill, Rhode Island.

But whether the mansion is a new home for the willowy blonde is questionable – the purchase may simply be a smart investment.

Taylor bought a home in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, which allegedly was intended to keep her close to then-boyfriend Conor Kennedy.

But the Red singer put the house on the market in the wake of her September split with the grandson of Robert F. Kennedy and sold it last month.

The sale was reported to be a $1 million profit.

A source told Vanity Fair that the house in Massachusetts was ‘like a house-flip’ and was a ‘good short-term investment.’

But Taylor, whose earnings last year topped $57 million according to Forbes, could certainly afford to live in the home.

The white mansion is reported to be over 11,000-square-foot and sits atop more than five acres – and would make an excellent vacation home for her famously close family.

Although, the country singer already owns a home in Beverly Hills, California and a penthouse duplex in Nashville, Tennessee, which she considers her main residence.

Stunning Taylor Swift!

She is one of the most successful singers of last year with her album Red going multi-platinum in the U.S. alone.

And Taylor Swift sported a gown befitting Country royalty on Sunday, stealing the show at the Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas in a stunning metallic dress.   The 23-year-old star wore her blonde hair straight and up in a chic ponytail, teaming the unusual chain-mail style old-gold gown with just a pair of subtle jewelled earrings.

The star is nominated for five awards – Entertainer of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year for Red, and Video of the Year and looked in good spirits as she made her way into the MGM Grand in Sin City.

The star’s intricate gown was partially backless, consisting of a shimmering silver metal built-in bra.

Meanwhile, Taylor’s friend Blake Shelton has warned his Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards co-host not to insult her on stage.

The Voice USA judge thinks his fellow presenter Luke Bryan should avoid angering the 23-year-old I Knew You Were Trouble singer’s fans at the ceremony at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.   Asked if he had any advice for Luke, Blake said: ‘I would tell him to be prepared for the onslaught of hatred that will come from Taylor Swift’s fan base if you say any sort of a joke or if she’s any part of a punch line in the monologue.’   Taylor is nominated for five awards at the 48th annual event and will also team up with Tim McGraw and Keith Urban for a performance of the track Highway Don’t Care.

They’re not dating!

She’s certainly seems to have a thing for curly-haired, baby-faced boys.   But despite reports that she has started dating Hawaiian surfer John John Florence, sources close to Taylor Swift have denied the claims.   It was reported on Wednesday that the 23-year-old singer was attempting to give love another chance, and had been text messaging the hunky blonde surfer.

However, a source toldE! News of the Life & Style Magazine report: ‘There is no truth to this at all. Taylor is not dating – or texting – this guy.’   Rumours of a romance between the pair were fuelled when 20-year-old John John was asked about the relationship on Australian television.   ‘Uh, I’m not supposed to comment about that,’ he said.

Smiling, he added: ‘Yeah, you know, it’s kind of a secret thing going on right now. Can’t bust it out in the public just yet.’   Taylor is famous for penning songs about her ex-boyfriends.

She finally revealed this week that her hit single I Knew You Were Trouble is about her ex-boyfriend Harry Styles.

Speaking about her spirited performance at the 2012 Brit Awards in front of Harry and his One Direction bandmates, the singer was asked how she felt performing the number while her ex was watching.   Taylor told The Sunday Times: ‘Well, it’s not hard to access that emotion when the person the song is directed at is standing by the side of the stage watching.’

Taylor’s Biggest Fear!

For someone who’s constantly surrounded by admiring fans , Taylor Swift’s biggest fear may surprise you , She’s afraid of ending up alone.
taylor-swift-fear-

“what i worry about is that i never want to end up kind of a self centered , vain human being” the country superstar told Instyle uk.

“My fears circle around making the wrong choices and messing this up for myself. I don’t wanna end up being awful and intolerable.Alone. Laying in a marble bathtub by myself, like sad, with a glass of wine just complaining  that my life ended up alone because I pushed everyone away because I thought  I was too good to hang out with anybody.”

Does that mean the 23-year-old, who is known for penning songs about her exes, is questioning her hit-making method of turning her heartbreaks into tunes in fear of burning bridges? Not likely.

While her chart-toppers “Dear John,” “Back to December,” “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”
“I Almost Do,” and others are admittedly about her ex-boyfriends, one of Taylor’s songs insists she’s never going to end up miserable and alone like she fears” Mean”
