    Why The Internet Thinks Taylor Swift's Song 'Bad Blood' Is About Katy Perry

    Ain't no drama like T. Swift drama cause the T. Swift drama don't stop.

    As cover star of Rolling Stone's September issue, Taylor Swift told the magazine that "Bad Blood," a track off her upcoming album "1989," is aimed at a fellow pop star. Since then, the Internet has run wild with speculation: who in the depths of Hollywood could be, as she put it, "straight-up enemies" with T. Swift?

    Though everyone from Miley Cyrus to Carrie Underwood is considered a possible frenemy, the World Wide Web seems to focus its investigation on one prime suspect: Katy Perry.

    Why? Some have taken the easy route and pointed out that, helllloooooo, they have an ex-boyfriend in common:
    "And it wasn't even about a guy!" she told Rolling Stone. "It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me."

    Hmmm. Others have pointed out that, according to an article in the Examiner from December 2013, three of Swift's backup dancers left mid-tour to join Katy Perry's troupe.

    "I was with Taylor for the first six months,'' backup dancer John Brownlie told the Examiner. "It was a great experience and she's a great person to work with, but then Katy contacted us.''

    Brownlie, who had previously toured with Perry on her California Dreams world tour, told the Examiner, "Obviously we were with Katy for two and a half years. She's like family to us, so we were, like, 'absolutely.'"

    Black Women Call Taylor Swift's New Video 'Really Troubling'

    Taylor Swift got herself into some hot water with the music video for her new single "Shake It Off." The clip features Swift trying and failing to fit in with a number of subcultures, including that of ballerinas and break-dancers, but the scenes causing an uproar are the ones in which Swift crawls between the legs of a line of twerking dancers.

    The clip has spurred a negative reaction from commentators including Odd Future's Earl Sweatshirt, who expressed his displeasure by tweeting that the video is "perpetuating black stereotypes to the same demographic of white girls who hide their prejudice by proclaiming their love of the culture."

    HuffPost Live's Marc Lamont Hill discussed the controversy on Thursday with a panel that included comedian Amanda Seales, gender studies professor Treva Lindsey and writer Everdeen Mason, who doesn't believe Swift's use of twerking is racist.

    Taylor Swift Is Apparently A Ballerina Now

    It appears that instead of working on a new album, Taylor Swift is learning to perfect a new craft.

    The "Red" singer has been spotted hitting up a dance studio almost every day this week, sporting ballerina-like outfits as she makes her way in and out of the building. Swift, 24, has ditched her typical leggings and oversized sweatshirt look for leotards, tights and ballet skirts.
    Not to mention she switched up her dance style directly after changing up her appearance -- the normally long-haired blonde is now a short-haired beauty.

    Jessica Hart Almost Fired From Victoria`s Secret Because of Taylor Swift

    After the Victoria’s Secret show last month, Jessica Hart was asked whether Taylor Swift had what it takes to be a VS model. The answer was an emphatic “no” in which she explained.

    “I think, you know what, god bless her heart. I think she’s great,” she said. “But, I don’t know, to me, she didn’t fit. I don’t know if I should say that. I think what you find is that for a lot of us, we’ve been working for 14, 15 years; what it takes to make it here comes from experience and confidence and knowing how to be confident with yourself. I think it comes with age. It’s definitely the benchmark of all jobs.”

    Today, rumors started floating around that Victoria’s Secret ripped off Hart’s wings over the comment and cast her out of Victoria’s Secret heaven.

    Turns out this simply wasn’t true. VS president of marketing Ed Razek tells Confidenti@l that her wings are safe from being clipped.

        “There is no truth to the rumors that Jessica Hart has been fired or that she will no longer work with the brand,” said Ed Razek, President and Chief Marketing Officer of VS. “As you will see, she was a great part of our show and we look forward to continuing to work with her. As previously reported, we at Victoria’s Secret and all those involved, including Jessica Hart, were thrilled to have Taylor be a part of the show. We look forward to sharing her performances next week during the television special.”

    Of course Hart won’t be fired. You can’t argue with the truth. What you can do is write a whiny single about a girl telling you you can never be a model and have it hit #1 on the Billboard charts.

    CMA Award 2013 Winners Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban

    Florida Georgia Line was experiencing the power of a song at the Country Music Association Awards on Wednesday night, taking two early trophies thanks to the overwhelming popularity of "Cruise."

    With their mothers in attendance, the duo of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley scored single and vocal duo of the year. Their quick tally was more proof the so-called bro country movement is the sound of the moment in mainstream country. FGL kicked off the show performing a fist-pumping medley with Luke Bryan, and very quickly returned to the stage to take the trophy for single of the year for their "Cruise" remix featuring Nelly. They also played the new song "Round Here."

    Meanwhile, Kacey Musgraves — who, along with Taylor Swift, led all nominees with six — won the new artist trophy, besting a field including Florida Georgia Line.

    "This first year for me has just been undescribable," said Musgraves.

    Hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley got the show going on a jovial note as they took the stage with their opening skit, first joking about feuds in music. They got Bryan and Zac Brown to hug it out after their mild feud over song trends in Nashville. They joked about Juliette Hough's misguided blackface Halloween costume, urging Darius Rucker to start his own feud with the singer. They skewered Obamacare to a Nashville audience that roared with approval.

    Then, they brought out the guys from the hit show "Duck Dynasty" and parodied Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," with Willie Robertson doing a little twerk for Underwood.

    Swift tied Florida Georgia Line with two trophies after her "Highway Don't Care" collaboration with Tim McGraw and Keith Urban won musical event and music video of the year before the show began. Lee Brice's "I'd Drive Your Truck," about a fallen soldier whose father still drives his truck, won song of the year.

    2013 American Country Awards Nominations Led By Taylor Swift

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Taylor Swift is the top nominee for the American Country Awards.

    A Tuesday news release says Swift received eight nominations, including top honor artist of the year. Blake Shelton and Florida Georgia Line are next with seven apiece.

    The fourth annual fan-voted ACAs will be broadcast Dec. 10 from Las Vegas on Fox with NASCAR driver Danica Patrick and country singer Trace Adkins serving as co-hosts.

    Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan join Swift, Shelton and Florida Georgia Line in the artist of the year category. Swift is the only performer to have been nominated for the award in every year the show's been held.

    Fans can now vote in all categories on the show's website through Nov. 12 and for artist of the year through Dec. 7.

    Taylor Swift’s Baffled Reaction To ACM Awards Joke

    The 2012 Academy of Country Music Awards kicked off in typical fashion, with veteran co-hosts Blake Shelton and Reba McEntire trading barbs about current events and their fellow country superstars. However, one joke involving a well-known bit of gossip seemed to genuinely stun one of the superstars in the audience--namely, Taylor Swift.

    Shelton and McEntire, while cracking a few jokes about current NFL darling Tim Tebow, made reference to the rumor that the uber-famous quarterback had gone on a date with Swift--a report that made headlines all over at the end of February. "Now we know what he's been praying for," Shelton deadpanned.

    When the camera flashed on Swift, the blond singer had a baffled look on her face. Now, we know Swift is notorious for her dramatic on-air reactions, but in this case it appeared to be the real thing.

    The incident sparked some chatter on Twitter, with viewers mostly chuckling about the joke. "Taylor Swift was looking extra salty after that Tim Tebow joke, HA!" one fan tweeted, while another enthused, "Oh T-Swift you're just too cute. And you so just confirmed that date with Tebow."

    Other fans felt Shelton went too far: "He was making fun of Tim Tebow and Taylor swift," read a disgruntled tweet. "It was just rude."Taylor Swift--"What you talkin' about, Blake?"

    Swift is up for several awards at the ACMs, including the coveted entertainer and female artist of the year categories. Early winners included Miranda Lambert for album of the year, Lady Antebellum for group of the year, Toby Keith for video of the year, Jason Aldean for vocal event and single of the year, and Thompson Square for duo of the year.

    Taylor Swift’s Unwavering Devotion To Britney Spears

    Country star Taylor Swift has a crush on Britney Spears. Taylor went nuts when she found her Britney’s poster missing from her bathroom! Yeah, you heard me!

    Thank God it was just her thoughtful mom cleaning up the place and giving the poster a more honorable location in Taylor’s house. Britney – from bathroom to bedroom in Taylor’s latest MySpace blog entry:

    “While I was in L.A. my mom reorganized my bathroom… But then I turned around and was startled by something… Where was my Britney Spears poster…. No, this can’t be right… WHERE is it?!? I searched the room frantically for a few seconds before finding it’s new spot. My Britney Spears poster (from 6th grade) had been relocated to my bedroom, which is another AMAZING upgrade. This way, I see it more often and it more proudly displays my unwavering devotion to Britney Spears.”

    Cancer-Fighting Teen Invites Taylor Swift To Prom; Gets Surprise Response

    Lots of guys want to go on a date with Taylor Swift. So, what makes 18-year-old Kevin McGuire from Somerdale, New Jersey any different from the pack of Swift's would-be suitors?

    Well, there are a few things, which I'll go over in a minute. But, suffice to say, McGuire, who recently asked Swift via Facebook to be his prom date in June, stands out for the response he got. Swift declined the offer...but asked him to accompany her to a prestigious awards show in April, instead!Taylor Swift

    How did this all happen? The backstory: McGuire has had a painful struggle with leukemia since he was 13 years old. He went into remission in 2010, but sadly relapsed and is currently battling cancer for a second time.

    His older sister, Victoria, impressed with her brother's bravery and character, started a Facebook campaign with the hope of granting his greatest wish--convincing Swift to attend prom with him.

    "All throughout Kevin's treatment he kept his character intact, remained playing basketball, and even started varsity football as a freshman," Victoria McGuire explained on Facebook. "Kevin is the kindest, most noble 18-year-old a person could even fathom meeting, and through out his ups and downs Kevin never even questioned 'why me?'

    "Nothing, and I mean NOTHING brightens Kevin's day more than Taylor Swift," she continued. "Kevin DESERVES more than anyone a special event in his life."Kevin McGuire's photo on the Facebook campaign

    Victoria's idea caught the attention of local news, who interviewed her about it. "[Kevin] said 'who would want to go to the prom with me? I am going to be bald, my appearance is going to change,'" she told an NBC affiliate. "We both looked at each other and I said, 'What if I got Taylor Swift to go to the prom with you?'"

    She began her career in the early 80's at just 16-years-old.
    But almost three decades later, Cindy Crawford proves that she still has her supermodel figure as she poses for a new campaign for Deichman Shoes in the middle of a busy New York street.
    The 45-year-old beauty looked stunning as she showed off the sexy curves that made her famous in her heyday, by slipping into an aubergine Herve Leger bandage mini-dress for the shoot on Tuesday.
    Cindy was one of the original supermodels alongside Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Claudia Schiffer, and Christy Turlington who reached the peak of their careers in the early Nineties.
    The star recently said she felt sorry for today's models as she thinks it's much harder to be one these days.
    She said the girls on the runaway and in magazines are shrinking and haven't got the curves of their predecessors.
    'I just saw the CoverGirl commercial with Taylor Swift and I thought, "Wow, it is so hard for models to get a job these days".

    Fame is Like High School :TAYLOR SWIFT

    The country music star says life in the public eye means anything awkward which happens is on a much bigger scale.

    “Anytime I’m onstage or watching the music video, the first thing that comes into my mind is the person I wrote the song about. It’s like the first thing that you think of is the moment that inspired the song, which is that excruciating, awful moment when you run into an ex for the first time,” she told MTV News.

    “[Being a star is] just like in high school, except [the awkward moments happen] at an awards show. You go on living a normal life, except on a different scale.”

    Swift recently revealed she’s been in a food frenzy since moving into her own place — only it’s not her doing the eating.

    “Having my own place and my own oven and stove and refrigerator has been amazing,” says Taylor.
