“Wow, I really used to think that happily ever after was a thing. [Now,] I think that no matter what you find in terms of happiness and compatibility, there’s always going to be a struggle attached to it. I used to believe that you find the one and that’s it — nothing’s difficult after that. But then again, I know nothing now. I know legitimately nothing about lasting relationship experiences because I don’t have them.”
In the December/January issue of Lucky, Taylor Swift talks about how her views of love have evolved — and made her kind of jaded. I mean, I can’t blame her too much for feeling worn down by the world. It’s not always the most cheerful place. I’m glad she acknowledges that nothing in life is 100 percent easy, including relationships, but does love really have to be that heavily associated with constant struggle? Relationships take work, but with the right person, difficulty shouldn’t be the defining factor, right? Then again, just like Taylor, I’m too new to the world to make that kind of judgment call either way. [Us Weekly; Lucky] [Image via AKM-GSI]
“I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn’t have to answer to innuendos. People should fact check. People shouldn’t have to go through that and shouldn’t answer to innuendos.”
Yesterday, alleged serial rapist Bill Cosby finally “broke his silence” about the controversy surrounding him in an interview with Florida Today. Well, here’s a depressing fact: 17 women as of this posting have come forward alleging Cosby raped and/or sexually assaulted them and yet only two dozen ticket holders decided to skip his show last night in Melbourne, Florida. The remaining attendees gave Cosby two standing ovations. [NY Times]
Beyonce has blessed us once again with a music video to end all music videos for her new song “7/11.” The vid, which appears to be shot on an actual damn iPhone, shows Bey and her girls getting silly in a hotel room, having the ultimate dance party, using everything from Red Solo cups to FOOT PHONES as props. I could watch this video over and over again and not tire of it, there’s so much to notice. Seriously, I want to live inside this video. Hell, I want to be buried inside this video when I die. It is that much fun.
Universal is baiting us with another “50 Shades Of Grey” ad just a week after the big reveal of the movie’s official trailer. This one is a TV spot featuring a Beyonce song once again and pretty much a recycled version of the same three or so clips we’ve already seen. I mean, at least this one shows more skin than the others. [Just Jared]
It’s been interesting watching Jon Stewart do the media rounds to promote his movie, “Rosewater,” after building a long career out of lampooning the American news media. For example, prior to this week, the last time Stewart appeared on CNN was in 2004, when he got the “Crossfire” audience to applaud the idea that “Crossfire” and its pundits were “hurting America” and played a large part in getting the show cancelled. This week, he returned to CNN and, much more mildly, compared the network to the murderous horror movie doll Chucky. Keep reading »
