Taylor Swift fans fume that her Eras Tour film will cost .89 to rent for just 48 hours despite her billionaire status: ‘Enough with the cash grabs girl!’


Taylor Swift fans have been left fuming that her Eras tour film will cost $19.89 to rent for just 48 hours.

The singer, 33, has been accused of taking an opportunity to ‘make even more money’ as many called on her to make it free as she is ‘already a billionaire’. 

Revenue from the Style hitmaker’s hugely successful Eras tour pushed her net worth to $1.1billion last month, according to Forbes.

Others have criticised her for only letting people rent the concert film instead of allowing them to buy it to keep or stream as part of their subscription. 

One said on Twitter: ‘I’m sorry but mother has been getting kinda money greedy recently cause ain’t no way she needs to make it $20 to see one time she’s literally a billionaire.’

Another penned: ‘Why wouldn’t she make it free. She’s a billionaire & we’ve already paid to see it in movies.’  

A third penned: ‘She is really finding a way to get every single dollar she can get out of this. renting is crazy.’ 

‘Capitalist queen for real,’ another wrote. 

One more agreed: ‘Enough with the cash grabs girl. You have like a billion dollars. Releasing every CD with 8 different versions was already too much but this just feels egregious. Just let it stream or let people straight up buy it. This feels icky.’

Someone else said: ‘I’m kinda tired of her releasing one thing and then different versions of it later. I want to buy the thing and that’s it, I know I’ve gotten the complete item. Not dribs and drabs of it.’ 

Another fan replied to that Tweet saying: ‘The general vibe is that people are unimpressed by this blatant cash grab.’

Others pointed out that Taylor had withheld three songs from the movie theater release of her concert film that would now be available in the rented version. 

Therefore even if fans had paid to see the film in the theater they have to pay again if they want to watch these additional performances.
