Taylor Swift’s “1989” earns a 6x platinum certification in the United States.
The reigning Grammy winner for Album of the Year has officially reached a new multi-platinum tier in the United States.
According to the RIAA, Taylor Swift’s “1989” reached 6x platinum status on October 19, 2016.
The 6x platinum certification confirms 6 million in US album units. Each unit is equal to 1 sale, 10 track sales or 1500 track streams.
Whereas many newly certified albums are generating the majority of their units from track sales and streams, it is worth noting that “1989” has sold roughly 6 million pure US copies in the United States. Its certification is therefore as much of a “pure sales award” as one should expect to see in 2016.

AT&T will share more details on the new multi-year relationship in the near future.
Taylor Swift, the only woman in Grammy history to ever win Album of the Year twice, will provide fans with the ultimate experience Saturday, Feb. 4, at a custom made 64,000 square foot venue in Houston created especially for this event. Fans will have access to tickets through a series of exclusive AT&T promotions and campaigns.

Taylor recently donated $1 million dollars towards Louisiana flood relief. The Red Cross has characterized this as the worst US natural disaster since Sandy. Taylor spoke on how heartbreaking it was hearing that people were forced out of their homes.
“We began The 1989 World Tour in Louisiana, and the wonderful fans there made us feel completely at home.”
Taylor Swift is donating $1 million to Louisiana flood relief after torrential rains caused massive flooding in the state and killed at least 11 people.
Swift told The Associated Press on Tuesday (Aug. 16) that Louisiana residents graciously welcomed her when she kicked off the U.S. dates of her 1989 World Tour in the state last year.
“We began The 1989 World Tour in Louisiana, and the wonderful fans there made us feel completely at home. The fact that so many people in Louisiana have been forced out of their own homes this week is heartbreaking,” the 26-year-old said in a statement.
The flooding is some of the worst in Louisiana history, damaging at least 40,000 homes. More than 60,000 people have registered for disaster aid from the Federal Emergency Management Agency after widespread flooding hit the state, according to Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards’ office.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — There’s no “Blank Space” in Taylor Swift’s bank account.
The singer-songwriter tops Forbes’ annual list of the 100 highest-paid celebrities with $170 million.
Swift is ahead of fellow chart-topping pop stars Adele at No. 9 with $80.5 million, Madonna at No. 12 with $76.5 million, Rihanna at No. 13 with $75 million and Katy Perry at No. 63 with $41 million.
The “Shake It Off” crooner’s star-studded “1989 World Tour” earned more than $200 million last year.
Swift’s DJ ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris landed at No. 21 on the magazine’s list with $63 million.
Other top 10 earners included boy band One Direction at No. 2 with $110 million, actor-comedian Kevin Hart at No. 6 with $87.5 million and self-proclaimed “king of media” Howard Stern at No. 7 with $85 million.
Kim Kardashian is featured on the magazine’s cover. She’s No. 42 on the list with $51 million. Forbes says 40 percent of her paycheck this year came from her mobile game “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood.”
The game’s maker, Glu Mobile, is scheduled to release an app starring Swift next year.
At twenty-six, Taylor is the youngest to make this list with a net worth estimated at $250 Million. This prestigious list by Forbes includes moguls such as Oprah Winfrey, Jessica Alba, and Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg.
At age 26, Taylor Swift has already won plenty of accolades: 10 Grammys, five Guinness World records and even an Emmy.
A handful of honors have come from FORBES, including Swift’s selection to our inaugural 30 Under 30 list, six consecutive appearances in our Celebrity 100 issue–and, now, the distinction of being the youngest name on our list of America’s wealthiest self-made women.
Swift clocks in at $250 million, claiming the No. 60 spot on a list that includes moguls such as Oprah Winfrey ($3.1 billion), Tory Burch ($750 million) and Diane von Furstenberg ($340 million) and fellow musicians like Madonna ($560 million), Barbra Streisand ($370 million) and Beyonce Knowles ($265 million).
The 2016 Billboard Music Awards was held May 22 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Taylor was nominated for eight awards: Top Artist, Top Female Artist, Top Touring Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Billboard 200 Album (1989), Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Radio Songs Artist, and Top Social Media Artist.
She took home the award for Top Touring Artist.
