Tayor Swift stole the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

Right, ‘fess up – who tuned in last night to watch a bunch of half-naked ladies march up and down a stage to music for a few hours? The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has always been a concept that’s been lost on me – I mean, I guess what is there to know other than “people like looking at women in lingerie”, but really? It’s 2014. It just seems a bit outdated.

Either way, the show must go on – and go on it did, with Taylor Swift providing some great music for the VS Angels to strut their lace-clad stuff to… and she was damn good. Just check out her performances below!

LOL at all the winking and kiss-blowing going on, and how it elicits wild cheers from the audience every single time. I feel like there’s a joke I’m not in on here. Anyway, I think ‘Style’ is probably the best song on 1989 and I love it so much.

In the interest of fairness, Ariana Grande was there, too, and while the broadcast missed out on the best moment of the night – Ariana getting whacked in the face by one of the Angel’s wings – she still did okay, I guess?

There you have it!

Ariana Grande’s baby voice annoys boyfriend Big Sean

Big Sean seems to have a thing for dramatic women. First he was engaged to Queen Crazy Naya Rivera and now he’s moved on to Ariana Grande, who apparently insists on talking in a baby voice at all times, even at restaurants and while having sex. Big Sean is none too pleased about this, according to an “insider”, and finds it incredibly annoying.

From Star magazine:

The ‘Break Free’ singer, 21, who has been dating rapper Big Sean, 26, since AUgust, has been driving her beau up the wall with her constant need to talk in a baby voice. “Instead of saying, ‘I’m thirsty,’, she’ll pout her lips and say, ‘I want to dwink a widdle joosh,’” a pal tells Star. “Sean thought she was kidding at first, but now he’s had it.” To make matters worse (or more disturbing), insiders say Ariana brings out the baby talk when she and Sean get intimate. So wrong on so many levels!

HAHAH! I love this story so, so much. A wittle joosh! God help us everyone. For some reason, even though Star is full of shit, I can TOTALLY see this being right. It’s almost a little TOO ridiculous to make up (and if someone did, seriously, hats off for creativity and humour!).

What do you think? Does Ariana walk around talking in a baby voice?

Ariana Grande responds to Bette Midler on Twitter (of course)

bette midler ariana grande

Remember how Bette Midler told Ariana Grande to stop acting like a whore in an attempt to get ahead? Ariana heard about it, obviously, and considering what a diva she is, you’d think she’d throw a tantrum, right? WRONG! Ariana has some common sense, however, as she knows to stay in her place and never challenge the Divine Miss M, and instead she tweeted the following:

ariana grande


I love that this chick still has the nerve to call Bette Midler – several decades her elder – “my love”. How condescending and up your own ass can you be? I get the whole feminism means no slut shaming and all of that, which is fair enough, but Bette telling it like it is doesn’t mean she’s no longer a feminist or that she’s a shadow of her former self because she’s not stripping off as a 68-year-old woman. Get a grip.

Bette is still standing by her original comments, though, and tweeted the following:


Get it, Bette.

Bette Midler to Ariana Grande: ‘You don’t have to be a whore’

Ariana Grande is a great singer whose star is on the rise. She’s even been compared to Mariah Carey – a great honour which you must never, ever bring up in an interview (or she’ll walk out). However, a rise to the top doesn’t come easy, and for Ariana, it has meant that she’s had to play up the whole sex kitten image that clearly doesn’t suit her and that no one in their right mind believes, especially considering she looks about 12 years old (but that’s one of about 5,000 reasons).

Anyhoo, one star who’s been there and done that and has some words of advice for Ariana is Bette Midler. You see, she wants Ariana know that she doesn’t need to be a whore to be famous.

Via TMZ:

Midler did an interview with The Telegraph, grousing about the state of the music biz. She’s particularly disgusted with Grande, saying, “It’s always surprising to see someone like Ariana Grande with that silly high voice, a very wholesome voice, slithering around on a couch.”

Midler goes on, “… Looking so ridiculous. I mean it’s silly beyond belief and I don’t know who’s telling her to do it.”

And then the punch. In giving advice to aspiring singers, Midler says, “Trust your talent. You don’t have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead.”

Huh. Well, look – I see where Bette’s coming from. The oversexualization of female popstars is absolutely fucking ridiculous and exhausting and it literally has zero effect anymore because it’s so overdone. However, Bette was into some pretty raunchy shit in the ’70s herself – maybe done a bit more tongue-in-cheek, but still… Also, we don’t need any more slut-shaming, regardless of how much older and wiser Bette might be now. So yeah, I can see both sides of the coin here. I wish women didn’t feel pressured to strip off and be this coquettish, cartoonish version of a seductress all the time. That being said, if that’s what someone legit WANTS to do, more power to ‘em. It’s complicated!

Ariana Grande has a stalker now

ariana grande

Another day, another story about a female celebrity being stalked by some crazy dude who thinks he has a chance in hell in getting with the object of his affections. Obviously mental illness plays a part in these cases, and it certainly does with Ariana Grande‘s stalker, 29-year-old Tim Normandin, who has been sending insane packages full of gifts for Ariana care of her management company, who have warned him off.

From TMZ:

Police in Lowell, MA paid a visit to the home of 29-year-old Tim Normandin, after Ariana’s record label complained the guy was sending Ariana a slew of packages. Inside the boxes:

– 42.5 pound pumkin
– 8 Yankee candles
– Dog and cat calendars
– 3-piece mirror set from Kmart
– $200 anklet from Kay Jewelers
– Rock from the White Mountains of New Hampshire

We’re told cops told Normandin to stop sending packages or he’d face criminal harassment charges, but he was undeterred.

The guy is steadfast … he’s trying to get Ariana’s attention.

He’s about to get attention as unwanted as the gifts he’s sending Ariana.

Actually… those sound like pretty great presents in part. The Yankee candles and the calendars? Sign me up. I’d put the anklet on eBay and I’d have to see the mirrors, but in general… yeah, it’s creepy, I get it. How do you even send a 42.5 pound pumpkin?

In the grand scheme of stalkers, this guy seems pretty tame, but then this will probably escalate to scarier/more dangerous than annoying things in future if they don’t nip it in the bud. Yet again, mental illness runs rampant…

Ariana Grande got Miley Cyrus’ advice on those diva rumors

2014 MTV Video Music Awards - Backstage & Audience

Once again, Ariana Grande is a major pain in the ass (and an outright asshole) to anyone who comes in contact with her. We all know it, we’ve all accepted it – well, all of us except Ariana herself, who claims to have been “heartbroken” by rumours of her diva bullshit that she… called Miley Cyrus for advice?

From MTV News:

Grande said: “I was upset and I contacted Miley. I said, ‘Miley, I’m so sad – what do I do? This isn’t true. My heart is broken, I feel so bad.’”She was like, ‘Girl, don’t even look at it. Just be happy that you’re blessed. You have family and friends love you, you have fans that love you who know what’s true and what’s not.’

‘It will blow over and tomorrow they’ll be talking about something else.’

“She lives for love and that’s something I do too. She has a beautiful spirit and she made me feel so much better.”

First of all, Miley looks so faded in the picture above that I doubt she even knew who she was talking to. She probably thought it was the pizza delivery place or something. Second of all, Miley has never been called a diva. She’s been called a lot of shit, but diva has never been uttered from anyone’s mouth with her name in the same sentence.

Also, Ariana is full of shit. You wanna know what you do when you’re so sad about something? You STOP DOING IT and then people will think nice things about you. Bye, girl.
