Taylor Swift has turned her back on all the Calvin Harris/Kim Kardashian/Tom Hiddleston drama that's been covered in the press recently and instead focussed her attention on the Louisiana floods - by donating $1million to the relief fund.

If you didn't already know, torrential rains caused massive flooding in American state Louisiana and tragically killed at least 11 people earlier this week.

And so Taylor Swift, who kicked off her 1989 World Tour in Louisiana last year, donated $1million to help try and rebuild the lives that were destroyed there and to help anyone seeking refuge during the difficult time.

What a babe.

She wrote in a statement to CNN: "We began The 1989 World Tour in Louisiana, and the wonderful fans there made us feel completely at home. The fact that so many people in Louisiana have been forced out of their own homes this week is heartbreaking.

"I encourage those who can to help out and send your love and prayers their way during this devastating time."

Regardless of what you think of Taylor Swift and all the drama she's gone through recently, this is undoubtedly a kind, loving and generous thing to do, and we should all be grateful for her helping out those less fortunate than her.

Our thoughts are with the victims of the Louisiana floods at this time.
