What's it like to be Taylor Swift's landlord? David Aldea knows firsthand, but he says he initially didn't even know who she was. "I got this call saying somebody by the name of Taylor Swift wanted to rent the place," Aldea told Inside Edition. "Although I had her songs on my running list, I didn't entirely know who the artist was." Swift rented Aldea's $11 million-dollar New York townhouse in 2016 for nearly $40,000 a month while an apartment she bought nearby was being renovated.
