When it comes to Taylor, you either love or hate her. It’s easy to hate her– she reminds you how awful it felt when your not-boyfriend broke up with you, and you listened to Red on repeat for days at a time, while lying on your bedroom floor. It was a low point, and Taylor is an incessant reminder of how boys can be the actual worst… whether you’re in college or a bonafide celebrity. The truth is, no matter how you feel about her, when T. Swizzle’s on, she’s really on. Read more on College Candy…
Taylor Swift’s new single “Out Of The Woods” is reportedly about her relationship with Harry Styles, but it’s also about every other wishy-washy guy we’ve ever dated. She told “Good Morning America” that the relationship in this song “was a relationship where I was kind of living day to day, wondering where it was going, if it was going to go anywhere, if it was going to end the next day. It was a relationship where you, kind of, never feel like you’re standing on solid ground.” Bleakly relatable, right? She added that the song “stresses that even if a relationship is breakable and fragile and full of anxiety, it doesn’t mean that it isn’t worthwhile, exciting, beautiful, and all the things that we look for.” Well, that’s not exactly untrue. The song was co-written by Jack Antonoff and employs a drum machine instead of her usual guitar strumming, because apparently Taylor’s feeling extra adventurous these days. You can get the song on iTunes here. The full album drops on October 27! [BuzzFeed]
No disrespect to my own parents or anything, but I’m still having trouble coping with the fact that I was not created by country music power couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. There are, however, three girls who were, and now I have one more reason to be jealous of them. The pair’s youngest daughter, Audrey, took the stage at Tim’s pre-show acoustic set in Arkansas back in August, and not surprisingly, the girl has some serious pipes. Keep reading »
The trusty talents in Postmodern Jukebox have just released their latest cover — a Motown rendition of Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.” Somehow, they managed to make the most energetic song in the world sound even happier (especially at the 3:10 mark)! I dig it. [Tastefully Offensive]
Just last week, Carrie Underwood released her new single “Something In The Water,” but unlike most of her newly-released tunes, it wasn’t exactly met with open arms. Carrie’s song, which affirms her belief in God, conversion and baptism, focuses on the strength she found from Christianity, which has left some of her atheist fans less than thrilled. But despite the criticism, Carrie told Glamour that she’s not sorry for singing about her personal faith, and she’s certainly not planning on changing her tune.
“Country music is different. You have that Bible Belt-ness about it. I’m not the first person to sing about God, Jesus, faith [or] any of that, and I won’t be the last. And it won’t be the last for me, either. If you don’t like it, change the channel.”

If you’re like me, still singing “A Whole New World” into your hairbrush while you twirl around your room like a seven-year-old, hold on to your magic carpets, because this is freakin’ amazing.
Lea Salonga, the Broadway legend who was Princess Jasmine’s singing voice in the Disney classic “Aladdin” 22 years ago, teamed up with Il Divo to sing the famous tune again, and HOLY CRAP is she good. Lea’s live version sounds exactly as it did over two decades ago— maybe even better. Watch her flawless performance above and get those hairbrushes ready, because it’s about to get all nostalgic up in here.
