“If I’m gonna write songs about my exes they can write songs about me. That’s how it works. I’m not gonna complain about it. I’m not gonna sit there and say, ‘I’m the only one who can write songs about this relationship.’ It’s fair game.”
– I’m not the world’s biggest Taylor Swift fan, but I totally stand by her right to write catchy-as-fuck songs about her personal life, including those romantic relationships that have gone wrong. Go to bed with songwriters, wake up to the latest pop hit being written about you. And Taylor has now made it clear — in an interview with InStyle UK — that this deal goes both ways. How soon till Harry Styles attempts to call her bluff? [InStyle UK]
Look, there is absolutely nothing I can say about this video of Taylor Swift and screaming goats that could do it any justice. Let’s just say, the internet really outdid itself and should really just retire about now. [Hypervocal]
Taylor Swift has been kind of an unavoidable beacon of willowy heartbreak lately, hasn’t she? This sad little moppet took a break from eviscerating Harry Styles and Conor Kennedy in song, to attend the Golden Globes, the Grammys, and now the Brit Awards. She’s never met an awards show she didn’t like. Thankfully, she’s got a cadre of stylists and designers clamoring to dress her. This time, Ol’ Swifty chose a gorgeous Elie Saab gown, with revealing sheer side panels. Well played, Ms. Swift. Perhaps you will attract another gloriously nubile young man to take you to the dance.
Hey, I’m not telling Us Weekly how to live its life, but holy crap do these mini-me children-dressed-as-Grammy winners creep me out. First off, I am super not cool with the idea of little kids dressing up as people whose reputations are built on their sexiness. Second, they gave one little boy fake facial hair so he could look like Sean Paul. What is that about?
The Us photos are part of a larger project called Toddlewood, by photographer Tricia Messeroux. According to her Tumblr, this is part of “the hottest photography project featuring the who’s who in Hollywood and politics but in a smaller more irresistible package.” Keep reading »
A few years ago, a favorite subject of conversation in pop culture writing was about Taylor Swift’s perceived “slut shaming” in her songs. Need I remind you of the song “Better Than Revenge,” allegedly directed at the actress Camilla Belle for stealing away Joe Jonas, which includes lyrics like “she’s not what you think, she’s an actress / she’s better known for the things that she does on the mattress”?
Today, the favorite subject of conversation in pop culture writing about Taylor Swift is her long list of boyfriends. Can you name them with me? Joe Jonas, Jake Gyllenhaal, Taylor Lautner, John Mayer, Conor Kennedy, and most recently Harry Styles from One Direction. (Pardon me if I forgot anyone.)
My, how the fickle winds have changed. Keep reading »
