So here’s what I think really happened when Taylor Swift released “Out Of The Woods” last week: some wild techno remix that she was saving for months down the line was accidentally released in the place of the original track, and this lovely singer Kathleen Nguyen thought she’d do Tay a solid by posting a video of the soft, acoustic, correct version of it. I’m all about Taylor trying out new sounds, but this rendition of “Out Of The Woods” is a much more emotionally honest fit for those from-the-heart lyrics. See Taylor? Your fans know you better than yourself. If you’re as in love with this cover as I am, you can download it here.
I don’t know if it’s just a hormone thing, but the fact that Kristen Stewart is happy is making me really, really happy (ditto Renee Zellweger). In an interview with USA Today, Stewart said that she’s “really happy right now, overly happy,” after two straight years of work following The Great PattinStew Love Bermuda Triangle of 2012. Good tactic, K-Stew, I’d forgotten all about it until just now.

Zach Galifianakis should get some kind of award for “Between Two Ferns,” because his ability to keep a straight face and stay in character while insulting A-listers is absolutely astonishing. During this episode, Zach had Brad Pitt on the show who he kept calling “Benjamin Buttons” and even asked how hard it is to keep a sun tan since he’s “living in his wife’s shadow.” On top of that, he asked how he felt when he first laid eyes on Angie and if it was anything like how Ross felt for Rachel on “Friends,” before proceeding to play the show’s theme song, making Brad as humanly uncomfortable as possible. Check it out, and I dare you not to laugh.
