“My first album came out when I was 16, so I would write about my life as I saw it, as I felt it, and then what happens is as you get more successful, which you’re lucky if that happens, you have more and more people paying attention to what you’re doing and you’ve been doing it the same way your entire career as a songwriter, but all of a sudden the perspective has changed. They use kind of you writing songs about your life as a way to play detective and for me I have a really strict personal policy that I never name names, so anybody saying that a song is about a specific person is purely speculating. You’re going to have people who are gonna say, ‘Oh you know, like she just writes songs about her ex-boyfriends,’ and I think, frankly, that’s just a very sexist angle to take. No one says that about Ed Sheeran. No one says it about Bruno Mars. They’re all writing about their exes, their current girlfriends, their love life and no one raises a red flag there.”
--Taylor Swift discusses her infamous habit of writing songs about her famous boyfriends, and while she certainly has a point, she is pretty much wrong.
All right, look, we all know that everyone who writes songs writes songs about relationships. That's obvious, and we don't need to argue that point. And while Taylor is right that there is a lot of speculation about who her songs are about, she's conveniently leaving out the part that she really encourages that speculation. Remember those clues she leaves in her liner notes? If you look, all the letters to the lyrics in the songs are typed in lowercase, but random letters are capitalized, and those letters spell out messages. For instance, the clue to "Everything Has Changed" from her last album read "Hyannis Port," which just so happens to be where the Kennedy family lives, including Conor Kennedy, a guy that Taylor was frequently seen with for a time. And she's trying to say that she doesn't want us to talk about that?
We love you, Taylor, and you've gotten so much better lately, but don't pretend like you've never been a little weird. Admit it and move on. Things will work out better for you that way, girl, promise.
Tori Spelling has been hospitalized -- but it goes way deeper than just a respiratory infection ... Fishwrapper has learned.
Sources very close to Tori tell Fishwrapper that it isn't just a fever and bronchitis that sent Tori spiraling off to Cedars-Sinai this past weekend -- it's the constant overworked, overwrought state that she has herself in dealing with her cheating husband, Dean McDermott, her waning fame, and the pressure that comes with working non-stop on realty show, "True Tori."
Tori's friends claims to be extremely worried about her, and hope that her constant medical emergencies serve as a wake-up call before it's too late. Our source says that this is Tori's MO -- she'll work herself up into a frenzy by staying up all night, avoiding food, and not sleeping, until she ends up being truly ill. Then she's hospitalized, and the vicious cycle continues.
The bottom line is that Tori needs some serious help -- and it's not in landing a reality show, or a series, or any more book deals: Tori needs some serious R&R, because these continued episodes at the expense of her health are going to eventually put her in the ground.
We all know that Selena Gomez might be going through a little hot mess phase right now, and that's fine -- she's 22, and, judging by Miley Cyrus, things could be way worse. But despite any Bieber-related drama that Selena might be going through, despite any kind of personal issues or professional issues, despite anything, really, there has always been one thing that has been true about Selena: she's adorable.
She's just a pretty girl, y'all, and these photos prove it. She can be precious and cute when she wants to, and, obviously, she can put on a skimpy bathing suit and slick some grease through her hair and be gorgeous. She's versatile, and for real, she's so adorable it hurts.
Kris Jenner was on "The Today Show" this morning to talk about her new cookbook, but let's not even waste anytime pretending we really care about that, and instead let's talk about what we're really thinking, which is dang, Kris, you look so good.
How does she do it? Seriously, it she practicing some sort of witchcraft to be this stunning? She turns 59 in a couple of weeks, and she's putting every single one of her gorgeous daughters to shame here. Kris pulls off that magical balance of being stylish and chic -- it kind of hurts how great her fashion is, right? -- with being downright hot, and no matter how many times we see her prove that hotness, it's still going to be just baffling.
In summary, get it, Kris. Get it hard.
It's so very tragic that we have to go on this journey once again, this hot mess voyage through the broken marriage of Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott, but their reality show got a second season, and, well, we just kind of have to do this. The season premieres tomorrow, and we get to see these two wild and crazy lovebirds continue to rebuild their relationship after it was destroyed by Dean's wandering penis. That should be enough drama, right? But in a brand new preview, Tori drops this little bombshell on Dean:
"I feel like I'm pregnant."
Oh dear god ... of course, this could just be a trick to lure us in, but we all know how fertile Tori is, so this could actually be true. Just when we thought "True Tori" was the most dramatic, most nauseating show of all time, they could be bringing a brand new little baby into the mix. Don't put it past them, guys. When it comes to desperation for attention, never, ever put anything past them.
Look, it's not like we expect much from the Kardashian family -- after all, they're a bunch of entertaining young ladies, they're not undergoing princess training -- but maybe, just maybe, they could show a little bit of decorum every now and then. Not even anything fancy, we're not asking for mountains to be moved here. It's just that maybe they could refrain from wearing clothing that advertises the want of "head."
This is Khloe Kardashian at the gym, natch, and her shirt, just in case you can't get a good look at it, reads "I just want some head in a comfortable bed." Now, of course the gym isn't a place to worry too much about clothing, but why does Khloe even own this shirt? Did she make it herself? Because it looks like a shirt that could be easily made at home. Regardless, Khloe thought this was a good sentiment to express in public, and she felt so strongly about it that she took this selfie for everyone on the internet to see as well. And that's extremely questionable.
Just a tiny bit of class, guys. That's all we ask for. Just the littlest bit. Please.
The name of the video is "Stressin," and we're surely "stressin" ourselves over what Jennifer Lopez seems to be transforming herself into these days -- basically a younger, hotter, Madonna who's actually still doing music: i.e., a woman who's grasping at straws to retain sexual relevancy when she should, in fact, just celebrate the fact that she's a beautiful, successful, empowered woman who's still got a career all these decades later.
This is Fat Joe's latest song -- featuring French Montana, because the only other thing you need to make a music video more cringe-worthy is French Montana trying to rap through his slurry, overstuffed-sounding mouth -- and the only thing that would make the video more uncomfortable would be Lopez herself shaking her ass and playing with French's many chains of gold.
Oh, wait. That happens, too.
"Wedding Planner," whatever happened to you, huh, girl?
... It's because he's become the master of vague, that's all. Kylie Jenner -- and come to think of it, most of her family -- is pretty vague when it comes to sharing personal information on social media, and Tyga's learned that pretty well.
In a response to an attack by an IG follower stating that Tyga was a "pedophile" for hanging with -- and allegedly dating -- Kylie, Tyga had this to say:
"why u sound so hateful. U don’t know s--t bout my life but the fake s--t u read online. Worry about your sad boring life. U wish u can have a baby by a n—- like me and live this lifestyle. let me guess no one wants u or ever attempted to spoil u and give u the world like I do for mines. Your ugly not just physically but in your soul. Never speak on on my son.”
LOL And yet he has the gonads to ask this woman why she sounds so "hateful." The bit about her being "ugly" isn't hateful at all, right?
About his son, which had apparently thrown him into a frenzy, the original poster said:
“Nasty a– pedophile..your career and family is worth losing over this Kardashian baby thot @kyliejenner..I hope @blacchyna takes you away from your son..you should be locked up.”
The drama, guys. So much drama. So much drama you probably want to puke right now, if you aren't already puking at the thought that a 24-year-old is allegedly allowed to date a 17-year-old girl who looks like this:
