Two Of These Entertainers Sold The Most Magazines In 2010 And One Sold The Least

The world is so fixated on what Lady Gaga will do and wear next that she was the newsstand hit in 2010. She can sell a magazine as well as she sells out her concerts. According to the Audit Bureau of Circulations, Gaga graced the covers of the best-selling Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, Cosmopolitan, and Elle issues in 2010. Rihanna also did well on the newsstands. Her GQ cover was the second-best seller for the men’s mag. But she also had appeal with young women, as her Seventeen cover also sold like hotcakes. Surprisingly, Taylor Swift was an under-performer at the newsstands. Her April Elle cover was the worst-selling issue of the year. Likewise, Taylor’s November Glamour cover was the mag’s second-worst seller, and her July Marie Claire was the third-worst selling issue for the monthly. So what does this say about our culture now? We’re more interested in celebs with a sexy edge as opposed to a wholesome image. [WWD] Keep reading »

Advice For Taylor Swift On Her 21st Birthday

Our little Taylor Swift is growing up and will be turning 21 on Monday. So what is she planning for her birthday? “I definitely want a winter-themed birthday — Christmas-themed,” she said. “And I’d really like to have it in my condo. I think that would be wonderful. … It’ll be cool that I’ll be able to go to a lot of concerts that my friends always go to and I sit at home because it’s 21 and over. Other than that, I don’t think I’m going to all of a sudden start being in love with the idea of going to a club.”

True, Taylor doesn’t look headed for party girl-dom. But still, there is so much we’ve learned since turning 21 that we wish someone had told us back then. After the jump, some tips for Taylor so that she can be a productive, legally-able-to-drink, member of society. Keep reading »

Taylor Swift Is Entertainer Of The Year? We Prefer Jon Hamm Or Jane Lynch.

Today, Entertainment Weekly‘s annual Entertainers of the Year issue hits newsstands. And Taylor Swift is on the cover, in a suit and bowtie, touching the rim of her top hat. It’s pretty obvious why EW decided to bestow the honor upon TayTay, making her their youngest Entertainer of the Year ever. This year, she reeled in four Grammys, starred in “Valentine’s Day,” and had some high-profile romances, including with hot new boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal. Not to mention that her new album, Speak Now, has sold more than a million copies, making it the biggest release in five years. But still, she’s so … milquetoast. Keep reading »

Jake Gyllenhaal And Taylor Swift Are In A Serious Coffee Date Rut

In the month they’ve been rumored to be dating, Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Swift have already settled into a pretty blah routine. At first, their courtship had a zip of excitement with a spotting backstage at “Saturday Night Live” and a jaunt to London. But now, the two are clocking a whole lot of time in coffee shops. Which makes some sense because, well, Taylor is only 20 and can’t go anywhere that requires carding. But still, borrrrring.

After the jump, a timeline of how Jake and Taylor fell into their caffeinated rut. Keep reading »

Kanye West On George W. Bush And Taylor Swift

“Everybody said, ‘Oh my God, Kanye, I love you so much. I hated you until you said that. But now I see you’re speaking for me. I always thought you were an a**hole but now you said something that represents me.’ But the whole time, whole time I’m thinking in my mind I was thinking that’s not exactly what I wanted to say, I was emotional, that was not exactly the way I wanted to say, I was emotional, that was not exactly the way I wanted to word it, but I wrote it, I rode it, just as Taylor never came to my defense in any interview, and rode the waves and rode it and rode it, that’s the way I rode the waves of the Bush comment.”

Kanye West goes on a rant last night while on stage, performing the songs from his new album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in New York City. First, he explains that he was a little tough on George W. Bush when he said, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.” And then, he slams Taylor Swift. It’s time to let both these incidents go, dude. [NY Mag] Keep reading »

While just about every TV show and movie has been made into a porn spoof, Vivid Entertainment is about to make the music industry take it all off.

After all, it’s never too late to hate screw!
