“We started to get a theory that when you don’t go [to the Grammys], that’s when you win. But Nancy [Shevell, McCartney's wife] likes the event, and I do too, because she does. In some ways, it’s better than the Oscars – the Oscars are great and super-important, but the Grammys is like a really cool concert and you get some very good performances. But this is what happens: We went a couple of times and sort of sat there, and graciously accepted defeat. With that moment you look for at the Oscars or the Grammys, when the cameras go to the people who didn’t win, and they’re smiling wonderfully and applauding. ‘And the winner is – John Mayer!’ And you go: [through clenched teeth] ‘Oh, wonderful. How wonderful. What a good singer.’ Secretly you’re thinking, ‘He’s not as good as me though.’ It’s a very human moment.”
– Paul McCartney has a bit of a reputation as a difficult, cranky guy, but hello — he was in the Beatles, he can do whatever he wants. Including diss John Mayer, very publicly, via The New York Times. [NYTimes]

And what do you think the girls (who appear to be in a lady band, sorry I don’t recognize them) must be thinking about his stupid purple suit? Caption this photo, please!
We all love Taylor Swift, but man, girlfriend has been doing some batshit crazy things lately. All these boyfriends! And she falls in love in two seconds flat and then, because she’s mega rich, buys houses and stuff right next door to them. True story: I once accidentally saw Taylor Swift perform at an Apple store in, like, 2007. Nobody was there. I was trying to get my computer fixed, and she was just singing to three people. But anyway! Taylor is pretty, young, rich and famous. And as Ryan O’Connell writes on Thought Catalog:
Her career depends on her getting laid and having her heart broken. That’s what 99% of her songs are about. If we don’t know who she’s sleeping with, what else is there to really know about her? It’s practically her job to always be in love with someone.
And that could turn practically anyone batcrackers
So we’ve catalogued the year in crazy Taylor Swift girlfriend moves, for your pleasure.
