Taylor Swift, Amy Poehler, & Tina Fey Prompt Dumb Conversation About Feminism

Once upon a time at the Golden Globes, hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey made a little joke at Taylor Swift’s expense. It wasn’t even an especially mean joke, really, but it still poked fun at Swift’s reputation for getting around. “You know what, Taylor Swift? You stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son,” they

Taylor Swift Isn’t “Clingy, Insane, Desperate”

“For a female to write about her feelings, and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her, I think that’s taking something that potentially should be celebrated—a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way—that’s taking it and turning it and…

The 10 Best Screaming Goat Music Videos

Yesterday was the best day of my life. Want to know why? Because I discovered this video mashup of Celine Dion singing “All By Myself” with a screaming goat. I’d seen the Taylor Swift goat music video that Julie posted last week, and loved it (obviously!), but goats and Celine Dion are literally my two…

Taylor Swift Gets Parodied For A Good Cause!

There is a great parody of Taylor Swift’s “22” floating around the interwebz.  Rather than finding inspiration from ex-boyfriends this song takes aim at a different set of pathetic men: the 22 Senators who did not vote “yes” on the Violence Against Women Act.  The bill will come up for a vote in the

Taylor Swift Says Her Exes Can Write Songs About Her Too

“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…

Taylor Swift Strips Down At The Brit Awards

Taylor Swift Gets Hardcore Goated

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]…

Well-Played: Human Heartbreak Machine Taylor Swift All Dolled Up At The Brit Awards

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…

These Us Weekly “Mini-Me” Photos Make Me Squirmy

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…

The Soapbox: Taylor Swift Is Allowed To Have A Lot Of Boyfriends, OK?

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’…

Taylor Swift And Harry Styles Allegedly Broke Up Because She Wanted Him To Get Circumcised

Listen To Tom Odell Cover Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble”

Taylor Swift fans don’t get any respect and I’m okay with that. It means that I’m willing to listen to this Tom Odell cover of “I Knew You Were Trouble,” sung as a ballad — instead of that faux dubstep weirdness — and Taylor haters are not.
In other news, that Tom Odell is a…

Golden Globes Style Stealer: Major Statement Earrings

I always get so inspired by red carpet fashion, until I realize that my day to day life affords me very few opportunities to wear sequin fishtail gowns, and then I get sort of depressed. But luckily for us non-famous folks, there were a few trends from last night’s Golden Globes ceremony that can easily…

Taylor Swift Should Never, Ever Get Back Together With Her Makeup Artist

Okay, fine, her skin looks amazing, but I really want to come at Tay Tay with some cotton swabs, makeup remover, and a blending brush right about now, because all that rust eyeshadow is making her look rather corpse-y. On the plus side, her breasteses look fab! Harry Styles, boy, eat your clam-loving heart out.

Yet Another Breakup For Taylor Swift

Another day, another guy for Taylor Swift to break up with and then write sad songs about. Yes, the singer has split with Harry Styles of UK boy band One Direction, the Daily Mail reports. Swift, 23, and Styles, 18, were on vacation in the Virgin Islands over the New Year’s holiday and “had an almighty row,” according to an obviously…
