Taylor Swift's Legs Are Not Insured for $40 Million

Time to shoot down another Taylor Swift rumor.  The National Equirer's report that Taylor has had her legs insured for $40 million isn't correct, sources tell Extra. Supposedly, Taylor's team wanted to insure her gorgeous gams because they're concerned about her getting injured onstage during her world tour, but sources tell Extra the story is "silly" and "not true." Taylor's 1989 world tour officially kicks off May 20 in Bossier City, Louisiana, but before that, she has dates earlier in May in Japan, and at the Rock in Rio Festival Las Vegas.
