Taylor Swift Breaks Silence To Surprise Fan With Graduation Gift

However you feel about Taylor Swift, you can?t deny the woman knows how to put a smile on a fan?s face

Swift has been on a bit of a social media hiatus following a remarkably rough year (see Kim and Kanye feud, Calvin Harris breakup, Tom Hiddleston breakup, etc.). The ?I Don?t Wanna Live Forever? singer hasn?t tweeted since January, and has shared only one Instagram post in the last two and a half months. But Swift did resurface briefly over the weekend to congratulate longtime fan Ashley Silvers on her college graduation.

Silvers, who has reportedly seen Swift in concert eight times, invited her idol to celebrate her graduation from the University of Central Florida. Though Swift could not make it to the party, she did send a pretty bomb bouquet and card. 

?Hi love, I?m so sad that I can?t make it to your graduation party,? Swift wrote in the note. ?The New York theme, the photo booth, it being on the 13th … that?s my kind of party. I?m so proud of you, your hard work and dedication, your excitement and ambition,? she added, ?I?m very lucky that a girl like you cares about me.?

No, we?re not crying! We?ve just got something in our eye.

Silvers shared her gratitude with an Instagram post.

?Thank you @taylorswift for the gorgeous flowers, beautiful card and 8 years of amazing memories,? Silvers wrote. ?Love you!!!? 

So happy for you, Ashley! Now that you and T.Swift are BFFs, maybe you could ask her when the next album is due? No pressure.

Jay Z’s Mom, Gloria Carter, Is Leading A Way To Help Empower Underserved Youth

Gloria Carter, mother of hip-hop mogul Shawn ?Jay Z? Carter, is making sure even more students have access to higher education, just in time for graduation season.  

Carter is working to raise funds for the Shawn Carter Foundation, the nonprofit she co-founded with Jay Z to help underserved people further their education at postsecondary institutions, by partnering with eBay for Charity for a special auction.

Carter told HuffPost that this initiative is important for her foundation to help as many students as possible.

?It?s important because there?s so many children that need financing to get to where they need to go,? she said. ?In partnering with eBay, I?m able to touch a lot of people. The deal that we made gave us the potential to make a lot of money that can really, truly help the underserved. And you know, it?s a great thing because it?s around the time for graduation.?

Since Carter founded SCF with her son in 2003, they?ve raised more than $4 million for initiatives promoting youth empowerment and communities in need. The foundation hosts an annual historically black colleges and universities tour, and offers a scholarship fund, study abroad experiences and counseling initiatives. 

Carter told HuffPost that she created the nonprofit partly to continue her 91-year-old mother?s legacy. 

?I tell my mother every day, when I grow up, I want to be you, because this came from my mother. My mother was that person who believed in the community. Who did things for the community,? Carter said. ?My mother brought people together. I just took it to another level. She couldn?t start a foundation. She couldn?t change people?s lives with education but she changed people?s lives by just being a part of the community and touching it. So it was kind of instilled in me.?

Carter prides herself in passing that giving spirit on to Jay Z so that he can pass it on to his children. 

?He comes from that. He comes from learning to give back and he has touched people?s lives. He has changed their lives also. And in the process of doing that, he also changed his life,? she said.

All of the proceeds from the auction, which starts Monday and ends May 24 at 4 p.m. PDT, will go to the SCF?s educational programs and scholarship fund for underserved students. Fans will be able to bid on unique experiences and memorabilia ? including a VIP lounge party at the 40/40 Club in New York City, Made in America VIP passes and an autographed guitar from Nick Jonas ? and will be automatically entered to win a VIP day at Roc Nation Headquarters.

Supporters will also be able to donate symbolic gifts that will go directly to the foundation: $10 for students who can?t afford public transportation fare to get to class, $25 for students who need food to eat, $50 to help cover academic costs that tuition doesn?t cover and $100 to help fund a one-day college bus tour for first-generation students.
