Who’s the Most Charitable Celebrity?

Plenty of celebrities are generous when it comes to money donated to charity – some more than others, of course – but just who gave the most in 2013? The answer might surprise you, actually. DoSomething.org compiled a list of the top givers this year (via The Hollywood Reporter), and who should top the list but Taylor Swift? Right behind her is One Direction, as well. Huh, who’da thunk it?

Here’s the full list of celeb givers. It’s not clear just how much each of them gave, but Taylor donated $100,000 JUST to the Nashville Symphony Orchestra, so it’s fair to say she probably gave close to a million, if not more, given the amount of campaigns she’s been involved in. Of course, celebrities SHOULD give back. They have more money than they know what to do with, so why not give to those less fortunate?

1. Taylor Swift
2. One Direction
3. Beyoncé
4. Paul Walker
5. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
6. Sandra Bullock
7. Kerry Washington
8. Ian Somerhalder
9. Ryan Seacrest
10. Carrie Underwood
11. Jennifer Lawrence
12. Alicia Keys
13. Bryan Cranston & Aaron Paul
14. Miley Cyrus
15. Demi Lovato
16. Blake Shelton
17. Mindy Kaling
18. Kevin Durant
19. Kendrick Lamar
20. Justin Bieber

Are you surprised by anyone on this list? I sorta am by Kendrick Lamar, who I love but admittedly don’t know much about other than his music. Good to see Macklemore doing his thing on that list, as well. Oh, and LOL to Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul being one entry.

Taylor Swift’s New Album Will Be a “Reinvention”

Hang on to your hats, Taylor Swift fans, because she’s preparing her new album and it’s going to be way different than her last one! Of course, that would be the assumption for most artists: as time passes, you grow personally and professionally and your sound will evolve to reflect that. That’s what’s happening with TSwift – the biggest pop star in the world, in case you forgot – as she collaborates with other writers to put together her next string of hits.

From Billboard:

“I’m really loving collaboration right now. I see it as a bit of an apprenticeship. I want to be around people who love writing songs and have done it for years.

“Every time I’m in a studio I’m learning, like how to build a drum track, and getting a new perspective on things. It’s so thrilling to keep learning on your fifth album.

“As soon as [an album] comes out, I’m figuring out what the next one will be. It’s gotten to the point where each one is a reinvention, which is what I like best. I like it when it sounds new and people don’t know where you’re going to go next.”

I’ll be interested to see what the next album is like, to be honest. I really liked Red – it had some jams on it. If it’s in the same vein, this one will be a winner, too.
