  “Style” Certified 3X Platinum In The United States
 

Taylor Swift’s “Style” earns a 3X platinum honor in the United States.

The second-most-certified digital singles artist in RIAA history continues moving toward the top of the mountain.

On December 7, 2015, Taylor Swift’s “Style” earned a 3X platinum certification from the RIAA. The certification confirms a US unit total of at least 3 million; one unit is equal to 1 paid download or 100 streams.

In elevating “Style” from double platinum to triple platinum, the new certification brings Taylor Swift’s digital single certification total to 96.5 million total units. That brings her within 4.5 million units of the top spot.

Rihanna, who earlier this year dethroned Swift to become the top digital singles artist, has 101 million in unit certifications.

  Taylor Donates $50,000 to Seattle Symphony
 

From one Grammy winner to another: Taylor Swift donates $50,000 to the Seattle Symphony, inspired by its commission and performance of John Luther Adams’ award-winning “Become Ocean.”

On Thursday morning, the Seattle Symphony Orchestra announced an unexpected gift — $50,000 from country-pop superstar Taylor Swift. It was a present from one Grammy Award winner to another.

In a letter to music director Ludovic Morlot, Swift said she was inspired to donate by a recording of John Luther Adams’ Grammy-winning “Become Ocean,” which the Symphony commissioned, premiered at Benaroya Hall in 2013 and then performed at Carnegie Hall the following year as part of the Spring for Music Festival. The composition, Swift wrote, reminded her of going to her local symphony with her grandmother.

“I was thrilled to hear that Taylor was moved by ‘Become Ocean,’” Morlot said in a prepared statement. “This is a powerful piece with a unique soundscape.” The swelling, oceanic composition also won a 2014 Pulitzer Prize for music and was described by Alex Ross in the New Yorker as “magnificent” with “a sense of unwinding, of subsiding, of dissolution.”

Swift’s donation is earmarked for two Seattle Symphony programs: Link Up, a music-education program for elementary-school students — which sends teaching artists into classrooms for weekslong residencies — and its musicians’ pension fund. Link Up has an annual budget of $360,000.

  Taylor Featured on Guardian’s Media100 Most Influential People in Media List
 

Taylor was featured on the Guardian’s Media100 Most Influential People in Media List! Coming in at #8, Taylor is the only other entertainer featured alongside Adele. Amongst Taylor’s record breaking album sales, Taylor is also credited for her influence in changing Apple’s policy on compensation for artists during Apple Music’s free trial period.

Taylor Swift Is Continuing Her Reign As The Most Influential Woman In The U.k. Press After Landing At Number Eight On The 2015 Mediaguardian 100 Poll.

The annual survey, compiled by editors at Britain’s Guardian newspaper, ranks those who boast the most pulling power and have had the biggest impact on national art, advertising, technology and journalism in the past year.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg tops the new countdown, while fellow tech leaders Larry Page, co-founder of Google, and Apple CEO Tim Cook trail at two and three, respectively.

Taylor becomes the highest-placed celebrity at eight, up two spots from last year’s (14) poll, after the Shake It Off singer “singlehandedly got Apple to take notice when they totally ignored major corporations” over their initial plans not to compensate artists for streaming their work during Apple Music’s free trial earlier this year (15).

British presenter Chris Evans rides high at 13, while fellow TV personality and comedian Lenny Henry places at 18.
