So it only makes sense that one of Tay’s most enviable, flaunt-able features — her legs — are reportedly worth a whopping $40 million.
In preparation for her upcoming 1989 World Tour, the 25-year-old and her team are looking into insuring her stems against possible injury. This basically means that if anything were to happen to her legs that would keep her from performing, she wouldn’t have to worry about going broke.
If this seems like an insane move to you, just consider the fact that Taylor’s income is so largely dependent on her stage presence and her performances. And with a humongous world tour kicking off in May, it totally makes sense that she’d want to protect herself against possible injury — her whole career would potentially be at stake.
The National Enquirer also reports that Tay was supposedly shocked at the value of her legs . A source told the tabloid, “She thought her legs were possibly worth a million. But $40 million shocked her. She’s even a little embarrassed about it.”

FYI, celebs getting policies on their most valuable body parts is nothing new. Athletes do it all the time — soccers stars David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo have both insured their legs — and then there’s Jennifer Lopez’s $27 million booty and Julia Roberts’ $30 million smile. And in one example that makes Taylor’s price tag look like chump change, Mariah Carey reportedly got a $1 billion policy on her legs in 2006, when she was under contract with Gillette.
Now that we can all rest easily knowing that Tay’s gams are protected, I’d also like to petition that her team look into insuring the following: her vocal cords (because she’s a singer, duh), her red lips (because she’s got that classic red lip thing going), and her heart (because how else is she supposed to expertly write the world’s most perfect and relatable songs that convey exactly how we feel at the moment we are feeling them?! #SAVETAYLORSHEART).
