Blind Items: Taylor Swift is a Beard Again

From Blind Gossip:

This cute young celebrity is in a tough spot. He wants to live as his real self, but he is part of a group that could suffer if his image changes.

Here’s the situation: He is gay. He has always been gay. But the role he has to play is one which girls would find attractive. So for the past couple of years, he has been pretending to be straight, and pretending to enjoy girls idolizing him.

Now he is growing increasingly uncomfortable with that role. He is frustrated that he can’t openly date guys his age. He is not the only one in his group of colleagues who feels this way. However, for now, he is the only one who has been pushing management to allow him to be the “The Gay One”. He really wouldn’t mind that label at all. The others are trying to stay out of the controversy. While they are privately supportive of him, they are content to play the public game of pretending that they are all straight as long as the paychecks keep rolling in.

His management team – which is substantially older than him – vehemently opposes his coming out. They have made it very clear to him that they are there to sell an image, not to cater to his personal desires to come out. They believe in the more old-fashioned “girls are only interested in straight boy celebrities” school of thought. They don’t believe that a gay young celebrity will sell. They are so convinced of this that they have warned him that if he goes rogue and announces that he is gay, and fans tune out… he will lose his job.

It’s Harry Styles, right? One Direction and Harry Styles? Who else could it be? It’s not as if there are any super-mega popular boybands out there these days, unless you count Backstreet Boys, but I think that ship has sailed for a variety of reasons. One, they’re not spring chickens anymore, guys. Two? Didn’t one of them already come out as gay? Wait, no. That was *N Sync—Lance Bass. Alright, not the Backstreet Boys.

I’m going to go with Harry Styles, because that’s the easy thing, and when all else fails, you go for easy, right? Isn’t that why he was “dating” Taylor Swift to begin with?

Guess Who Still Looks Really, Really Great?

That’s right—Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, who, this year, will be together for thirty years this year. That’s a long time, guys, and not even for Hollywood standards. These days, that’s a long time for anyone, and gosh, don’t they still look so happy together?

Goldie and Kurt were photographed in New York City this weekend. Goldie’s 67 years old and Kurt’s 61 years old, which means that they’ve spent almost half of their lives as a couple. Isn’t that so, so nice?

But Hey, Did Miley Cyrus Get Married?

Oh man, guys. Miley looks so good here. Seriously, she looks happy and fun and free and young, and isn’t that what Miley’s been about all these years? Yeah, her penis cake was a little over the top, and the initial hair thing was a little much, but all in all, Miley’s just twenty years old, and come on. What were you like at twenty years old? Me? Well. I can say that I was almost exactly like Miley at twenty, just minus all the money and the Liam Hemsworth-looking boyfriends. Mine were even better looking.

Ahem. Here’s Miley, to Cosmo UK, on the best part of her life:

“Number one is my relationship with Liam. That’s what I feel the most confident in because you never know. There’s so much hype behind my new record, but it could come out and, worst-case scenario, everyone [expletive] hates it.”

And Miley on thinking that the best part of her life is super hot:

“I’ll literally look at him and be like ‘You are hot, dear god!’ The other day, I turned on the pool heater and it was steaming, and he walked outside and took off his clothes and jumped in the pool. I was like, ‘I’m gonna faint–the hottest guy of my life is in a steaming pool. This looks like a Playgirl shoot.’ So I took a photo and made it the background on my phone. My best friend grabbed my phone and was like, ‘Who’s that? He is so hot!’ That’s my hubby!”

Hubby. Interesting, huh? Wonder if there was any truth to that quickie wedding rumor that happened awhile back.

Next, Miley on what it was like from Hannah Montana to where she is now:

“Some of the worst things that have happened in my career, like things getting leaked, have actually been what’s best for me, because people knew when I was on [Hannah Montana] that I was really growing up. I never faked anything. I never played the Disney game of smiling and being a princess and then suddenly having a hard time, saying, ‘That isn’t who I really am.’”

On being friends with other ladies in her industry and being true to herself:

“Katy Perry’s been my friend for f***ing five years, and I’m not ever gonna let our work get between that relationship. If Katy sticks with being Katy, and Ke$ha is Ke$ha, and Rihanna is Rihanna, and I’m me, there’s room for everybody. The problem is when people look at Gaga and say, ‘Oh, that works; I’m going to be like that.”’

See? Likable. Completely and utterly likable. I can’t wait to see what this girl is like in ten years, for real.

Love It or Leave It: Anne Hathaway Again

I’m going to grudgingly admit that I love this dress. I love the colors with her stupid, gorgeous, milky complexion, and I really like the stupid, flattering gladiator heels that she paired with said dress. It’s really, really nice, actually, and I hate myself more than just a little bit for liking it, because Anne Hathaway is so damn smug that she knew that she’d be a hit in this frock, and she’s probably not even self-effacing about it. Bitchface.

Anne Hathaway’s getup—love it or leave it?

Courtney Love Hates Gwen Stefani

Go figure, Courtney Love hates somebody and is throwing them under the bus for being more successful than her. From ABC News:

“Funny thing, you know, I would’ve never really bet on Gwen,” she said. “Not back in the day.” Love attributed Stefani’s success — her “f**king empire” of a clothing line, L.A.M.B. — to her husband Gavin Rossdale, whom Love said she dated before he got together with Stefani.

“His band never did that well but he is very, very smart,” she said. “He runs the Gwen show, that’s him. He runs the clothing line, he f**king built that up, he has nothing else to do.”

She smiled, shuffling through her purse for a lighter, remembering her relationship with Rossdale. “He was so good looking, but I kind of envisioned that me and Gavin Rossdale would end up on the French Riviera, like, taking tennis lessons and f**king our respective polo teachers.”

Can it be a testament to how good of a person I must be to take Gwen Stefani’s side on this one? Because most of you guys know my feelings about Gwen Stefani, and it’s got to be that I just dislike Courtney Love that much that I’d be willing to support a lady who I think is generally full of shit in most cases.

That being said … shut the f-ck up, Courtney Love. No one cares what you have to say anymore.

Chris Dumps Rihanna for Karrueche Tran Vol. 2.9

From Hollywood Life:

Chris Brown laid a kiss on Karrueche Tran at The Room in Santa Monica on Jan. 23, where Karrueche, 24, was celebrating her new cover on Rolling Out magazine, so we can’t blame Rihanna if she’s really planning on moving on and letting go of Chris.

Rihanna, 24, retweeted a friend’s message on Jan. 24, one day after Karrueche’s event, that said, “Life doesn’t stop for anybody. People move on, they change and they let go, they grow and eventually they forget and pass on.” Is she talking about moving on from Chris?

Chris, 23, made a surprise appearance at The Room in Santa Monica on Jan. 23, where Karrueche was celebrating her new cover on Rolling Out magazine. And no one could have been happier than Karreuche, who HollywoodLife.com has learned still hopes to get back together with Chris.

Luckily for Karrueche, we’re told that Chris gave her a kiss at the event.

“He came in through a back door, made her come back to where he was and told her ‘I’m proud of you girl’ and kissed her on her cheek,” a friend tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “He even told her ‘I gotta leave because this don’t about me it’s about you so go do your thang.’”

I don’t know about you guys, but I just love it when the man in my life lets me have the spotlight for important events in my life, like taking a new job, or accepting some kind of award, or even doing number two in the potty all by myself. It just makes me feel so good when certain things can just be about me, and no one else, and there’s no better way to encircle my heart with golden, effervescent light than to tell me to “go do [my] thang.”

Eloquence, guys. Chris Brown‘s got that shit on lockdown.

It’s Over: Liberty Ross Cuts Rupert Sanders’ Cord

Oh did you guys hear? Liberty Ross is finally done with Rupert Sanders. I mean, it only took her six months or whatever, but hey! She finally filed for divorce after all that Kristen Stewart cheating!

It happened yesterday afternoon in Los Angeles, Ross asking for joint custody and spousal support. Rupert filed his counter-petition and is amiable to the joint custody, but is also requesting that he and Liberty split the legal fees. Isn’t that so, so nice of him? I mean, come on—let’s cheat on our spouses and then when they (rightfully) file for divorce, tell them that it’s going to cost them, too. Totally makes sense.

Good luck, guys.
