This is my life: after every major awards show, I lie awake contemplating my feelings toward Taylor Swift. What we have is a love/hate relationship of epic proportions, that leaves me fighting an inner battle every time I see her on television. Do I cheer? Hiss? Pre-order her next album? Most of the time I just watch her with awe, annoyed that I’m so compelled by someone who bothers me so much. But she’s not the only celebrity who leaves me with conflicted feelings. Here’s a whole gaggle of stars we love to hate (and hate to love).
I know everyone is probably just assuming that all Taylor and Lorde have to talk about is boys and how anti-feminist Selena Gomez’s music is, and they probably did discuss those things while trying on hats and lipstick. But apparently* they were overheard discussing the thinness of “True Detective”‘s female characters and how sick to death they are of Buzzfeed’s inane personality quizzes as well. Wish I coulda been there! [Photo: INFDaily]
* I made this up, but I don’t think it’s impossible that these two topics were also discussed by music’s newest besties.
How cute does Taylor Swift look with her sassy new haircut (#shorthairdontcare) and an itty bitty polka dot dress? Answer: SUPER CUTE. Also see how those tan peep toe pumps make her legs look about 3 miles long? Sure, it helps that her legs are actually 3 miles long, but a similar shoe can do wonders for even those of us whose legs aren’t usually measured in miles. Get all the shopping details to steal Swifty’s style (for a fraction of the pop star price), after the jump! Keep reading »
“[When a guy is jerking you around y]ou don’t respond to any of his texts or calls until he does something desperate [like] shows up. Or he calls and leaves a voice mail. Something that makes it very clear to you that he’s interested. … I think everyone should approach relationships from the perspective of playing it straight and giving someone the benefit of the doubt. Until he establishes that this is a game. And if it’s a game, you need to win. The best thing to do is just walk away from the table.”
In the March issue of Glamour, Taylor Swift recommends the tried-and-true freeze-out. I’m not saying freezing out is a good thing, but it is effective, is it not? (And is it just me or do we think she honed this technique on John Mayer?)
Glamour also asked the pop star “Is it too clingy and too insecure to say ‘I don’t like it when you don’t text me back right away’?” (Excuse me while I roll my eyes into the back of my head at the thought of more “women are clingy” bullshit.) Taylor actually had some pretty great advice for that one: Keep reading »
Last night were the 2014 Grammy Awards! As per usual, they went on way too long and featured a lot of awkward dancing from Taylor Swift. But Bey and Jay were there! And so was Lorde! And the Highwaymen! So it wasn’t a complete loss. Let’s review the best moments in GIFs, pics and videos… Keep reading »
Taylor Swift’s off-duty fashion sense always reminds me of what Sandra Dee from “Grease” would look like if she only went about halfway with her bad girl makeover. That’s a compliment, BTW, because Sandy was trying to change too much of who she was for her man, and looked awkward doing it. Maybe if she’d kept the preppy clothes and just added a little pop of red on her lips and feet, she would have felt more like a sexier version of herself. Or maybe she would have just felt like Taylor Swift, which would have been weird because Taylor didn’t exist yet. Anyhoo, excuse my time traveling movie/celeb wormhole! Find out how to get Taylor’s look, after the jump! Keep reading »
The Grammy Award nominees were announced last night and the results were about what you’d expect — lots of nominations for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Lorde, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry Justin Timberlake and, yes, Robin Thicke. I’m most excited that Kendrick Lamar got a lot of love, but am DISMAYED that Janelle Monae was overlooked. Check out the full list of nominees after the jump! Keep reading »
The American Music Awards are basically the poor man’s poor man Grammy Awards — worse than the Billboard Awards but arguably better than the People’s Choice Awards. If you missed the festivities, because you were traveling for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, or watching “The Walking Dead” or football, or clipping your toenails, NOT TO WORRY — I watched and will recap every single moment I remember (after four hours of sleep and some lukewarm coffee) in GIFs and video clips! Check it, after the jump… Keep reading »
