Taylor Swift proved that she isn’t all about making profits after reportedly turning down the chance to earn $2 million to perform at a wedding. The superstar was allegedly offered a million dollars for each song she chose to perform at a billionaire’s wedding, if she also spent 30 minutes mingling with the bride, the groom and their guests.

However, according to the Sunday Express, Taylor turned down the offer in order to sing for free at the christening of her friend’s baby.

The 25-year-old, who has reportedly amassed a £160 million fortune, had understandably chosen to help her close pal Jaime King celebrate the christening of her second child, Leo.

Taylor is godmother to the one-month-old tot and she was sure to do her duties and serenade little Leo and all the guests.

A guest told the paper: ‘Taylor arrived with her own music backing tracks and belted out some of her biggest hits, including Love Story, I Knew You Were Trouble and Red.

‘She even rocked little Leo in her arms and hummed a lullaby to him. But he started screaming almost immediately, so she sheepishly handed him back to his mom.’

Actress Jaime, 36, and her husband, Hollywood screenwriter and director Kyle Newman, 39, were described as being ‘deliriously happy’ about Taylor’s ‘sweet gesture’.

The insider continued: ‘You have to admire her for putting friendship ahead of financial considerations. She said no to a small fortune so she could bring happiness to a good friend.’

Taylor certainly isn’t short of cash as she continues to power through her current 1989 world tour. And on Friday night, superstar basket player Kobe Bryant was there to unveil a banner commemorating Taylor’s five sold-out concerts at Los Angeles’ Staples Center.

‘The banner’s up at Staples Center right now because WHAT IS LIFE EVEN,’ wrote the 25-year-old singer after the show. The Staples Center is where Kobe’s team, the Los Angeles Lakers, plays. It apparently was a shock to Taylor that she would be honoured with a ‘championship banner’ during the show, although the arrival of Kobe seemed to be expected.
