Taylor Swift claps back against claim she's damaging environment, more news

Airplane issue

Taylor Swift is denying claims that her frequent flying is causing damage to the environment. A recent report from UK marketing firm Yard looked into celebrity’s usage of private jets, and it determined that Taylor left the biggest carbon footprint in the first half of 2022. The report said Taylor’s plane has flown 170 times between January 1 and July 19 of this year with a combined total of nearly 16 days in the air. Yard suggests her total carbon emission for these flights was 8,293.54 tonnes. However, Taylor team is fighting back, insisting that she’s not responsible for a good bit of that. “Taylor’s jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals,” a spokesperson for the singer told Rolling Stone. “To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect.”

Beauty tricks

Jennifer Garner’s beauty hacks aren’t as difficult as you’d think. “Be cautious when it comes to injecting anything into your face,” she said in a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar. “Be very, very incredibly judicious and wait as absolutely long as possible to add anything.  Don’t think that you’re 37 and you need to be shooting up your face.” The actress believes you can feel beautiful by being a more worldly. “Look in the mirror less, obsess less, and look at the rest of the world to see what you could be using your time for instead,” she said. “We all look at our faces more than people used to, and it doesn’t do you any good.”
