Pop star Taylor Swift took the number one spot on the one chart that she clearly doesn’t want to top.
The “Shake It Off” singer was named the “biggest celebrity CO2e polluter of 2022, by a study conducted by Yard. Based on data that was collected from Twitter account Celebrity Jets, the study found that since January, Swift’s private jet has logged 170 flights, which translates to 15.9 total days in the air.
The average flight time per trip rounded out to 80 minutes, with the shortest flight plan coming in at a scant 36 minutes. The “I Knew You Were Trouble” singer was responsible for putting 8,293.54 tonnes of carbon emissions into the atmosphere.
Swift’s representatives were quick to deny that the musician alone was responsible for surpassing the average human’s annual carbon output by more than 1,184 times.
“Taylor’s jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals. To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect,” her people said in response.
Researchers explained that the study was conducted after the internet uproar over Kylie Jenner’s tone-deaf Instagram post of her and her baby-daddy Travis Scott’s side-by-side jets on a runway that she captioned: “You wanna take mine or yours?”
While Jenner was certainly responsible for sparking the inquiry, she didn’t make the top ten worst offenders, ranking at 19th, but her older sister Kim Kadashian and Scott took spots seven and ten, respectively.
Floyd Mayweather came in second place with an average of 25 flights a month, rapper Jay-Z was next with 136 flights this year, while ex-Yankee A-Rod took the third spot with 5,342.7 tonnes of carbon emitted, and Blake Shelton rounded out the top five at 111 flights in 2022.
Rapper Drake, who did not make the list, but did come under fire for logging in three flights under 20 minutes in June on his $185 million jet dubbed “Air Drake,” explained that he wasn’t on any of the flights.
“This is just them moving planes to whatever airport they are being stored at for anyone who was interested in the logistics…nobody takes that flight,” Drake posted on Instagram.
