If you asked the average Taylor Swift fan who Carly Simon was, I’m not super confident they would know who you were talking about. The average Taylor Swift fan’s mom, though? She’s been singing along to “No Secrets” since way back in the day. So when Tay-Tay announced that she was bringing out Ms. Simon for a duet on a recent stop on her Red Tour, I’m pretty sure the deafening roar that ensued was the sound of a few thousand really, really excited moms. In related news? Carly looks amaaaaazing. Those boots! [YouTube via Rolling Stone]
I recently bought myself a Dolly Parton prayer candle (because hello, it was $7 and I truly do view her as a powerful, sequined deity), and let me tell you: I’m pretty sure my repeated requests for for bigger hair and sassier comebacks are paying off. Since lighting it, I can even hit the high notes in “Jolene”! Hallelujah!
Just in case you’re also in need of some divine celebrity intervention, I decided to round up 10 celebrity prayer candles you can buy (including my precious Dolly), and an example of the prayer you might want to use for each one. Click on the gallery above to see how celebs like Saint Kanye, Mother Minaj, and Angel Bieber can help you achieve your dreams!
Okay we get it! Taylor Swift is like, the nicest person ever. After enjoying an $800 meal with her tour crew (which she obviously paid for) in Philly, the pop songstress left a hefty $500 tip. Taylor, don’t you know that’s like, 60 percent? But I guess if you have boatloads of money it doesn’t really matter. The restaurant manager, Ron Trombino, sounded a little nervy when talking about the whole thing‚ like Swifty’s PR team would take out a hit on him if he didn’t fill the “nice” adjective quota when describing the experience:
“Taylor was very, very nice.”
“It was a very nice experience, very easy.”

This morning I read that Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift went out to dinner together at Chili’s, a revelation which instantly made me like both of them so much more. Just the idea of two hugely famous multimillionaires splitting a sizzling bacon ranch quesadilla in a corner booth and gossiping about Justin Bieber fills me with delight. I’m not sure if it’s residual Chili’s adoration or what, but I’m also really digging this boho outfit Selena was spotted in recently. Is it a little over the top? Sure. Is the sight of her wearing leather boots in LA making my feet sweat profusely? Definitely. It’s a lot of look, but I think she’s pulling it off. Selena, next time I hit up Chili’s, I will raise my El Niño® Margarita to your fearless fashion sense. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Abercrombie & Fitch just launched an anti-bullying campaign but they’ve fucked up yet again by making T-shirt with the slogan, “# more boyfriends than t.s.” — meaning Taylor Swift.
