Taylor Swift is the most famous singer in the world today. Born in West Reading, Pennsylvania, the starlet is currently on a world tour with the competition for tickets at fever pitch! 

Swift’s stratospheric fame has grown even more over the last week as she was in attendance at the world’s single greatest sporting event, The Superbowl. Her attendance was universally expected and heavily documented by media outlets because her current boyfriend and Kansas City Chiefs Tight End, Travis Kelce was set to play (and later win) the biggest oval ball game on earth. The event made history for being the most watched American Football final in history with over 123 million viewers. 

A little known fact about the 114 million album singing superstar, is that Swift’s paternal great-great-grandfather, Charles Baldi, was an Italian immigrant from Castelnuovo Cilento, Province of Salerno, Campania, Italy. Baldi was an entrepreneur and community leader who opened several businesses in Philadelphia in the 1800s. That makes Taylor Swift 1/16th Italian, not that we are claiming her as a paesana, but it would be nice to have 1/16th of her earnings. Taylor Swift can also claim to be the highest paid female singer in the world, with Forbes reporting her annual earnings at close to $90million for the year ending in 2022.
