Anne Hathaway actually blew me away with her punk transformation for the Costume Institute Gala for the “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum (or Met Gala for short). Doesn’t she look great as a blonde? Every year celebs dress to the hilt for the event for whatever the theme is. This year, it’s punk. So keep that in mind when looking at these photos — these looks are supposed to be crazy and over the top.
BEST: Anne Hathaway, January Jones, Sienna Miller
WORST: Almost everyone else, but especially Kerry Washington, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kim Kardashian and honestly there were so many more I couldn’t even deal with.
PLEASANTLY SURPRISED BY: Miley Cyrus and Anne Hathaway

Taylor Swift is such a huge freaking success. Sure, she’s made fun of for her lyrics and her serial dating/her comments about dating (here’s more), and her whimsical “I’m 23 but act 14″ mentality, but bitch is an empire and she knows what she’s doing. She just bought a $17 million dollar mansion — and paid for it in cash. That’s how successful she is.
Moments like these make me think, “I’ve wasted my life. 100%.”
SheKnows.com gives us the deets.
The Colonial style four-level Rhode Island mansion sits on 5.23 acres, 65 feet off the beach, and boasts more than 11,000-square-feet of luxury living space.
The mansion has 8 enormous bedrooms, 10.5 baths, 8 fireplaces, a 36-foot parlor, and a 45-foot sunroom. There are also two kitchens, a huge main kitchen complete with all the latest bells and whistles and a service kitchen on the lower level with access to the seaside entertainment area and a large pool, plus, a half bathroom just for staff. The heated garage holds five cars and has a separate area for a workshop.
… The original asking price was a hefty $20 million, but Swift was able to negotiate the price down to $17.75 million. Then she wired the money to seal the deal and movers were spotted at the house shortly thereafter.
This is some Great Gatsby shit. On the other hand though, the house is in Rhode Island. BUT it’s good real estate I guess. Will she ever live in it? She tours so much and is so busy. SHE’S ONLY 23. INSANE. The f-ck is she going to do with 8 bedrooms? She could stay in a different bedroom for each day of the week. That’s what I would do.
But good for her.

Chris Brown is a hated celebrity but apparently not as much as Anne Hathaway (which James Franco totally gets, btw). Star magazine released their super scientific list of top 20 most hated Hollywood celebrities. Weirdly Jay Leno is more hated than Chris Brown, which is making me laugh really hard. Here’s the stupid list:
20. Chris Brown
19. Jesse James
18. Taylor Swift
17. Shia LaBeouf
16. Lindsay Lohan
15. Angelina Jolie
14. Jay Leno
13. Ashton Kutcher
12. LeAnn Rimes
10 and 11. Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian
9. Anne Hathaway
8. Justin Bieber
6. Matt Lauer
5. Katherine Heigl
4. John Mayer
3. Jennifer Lopez
2. Kristen Stewart
1. Gwyneth Paltrow
This is a pretty good list. I’m shocked to see that Kanye West isn’t on here. I love him but I thought he was one of the most hated people around. I’m not sure if he’s psyched or pissed not to be included. I also didn’t realize that people hated Matt Lauer this much. Damn. Too bad this poll was taken after Justin Bieber’s idiotic Anne Frank statement or I’m sure he would be higher up. Kristen Stewart now has the dubious honor of being one of the most hated and least attractive female celebrities. Hey, good for her! At least she’s good at stuff!
Who is your ultimate most hated celebrity?

Hurrah, it’s another Taylor Swift dating story! We haven’t had one of those in… a day. This time around, Taylor’s been saying that her slew of famous boyfriends – from Harry Styles to Jake Gyllenhaal – weren’t really her doing because she’s not into celeb dudes, they’re actually more into her.
From The Times (via Now):
‘It’s not like I go for people in the entertainment industry,’ says Taylor, 23.
‘Those have been the types who have kind of gone for me recently.’
Taylor’s known for writing songs about her relationships but she’s not worried about it scaring potential suitors away.
‘You never know who doesn’t ask you out,’ the I Knew You Were Trouble’ singer tells The Times Magazine.
‘But I’m not scared of it. Because I know I’m not going to stop writing songs about my life.
‘So if someone’s scared of that, then that’s not going to work anyway.’
Well… last time I checked, you weren’t obliged to go out with someone just because they show interest in you. Second of all, what happened to being single forever? And yeah, anyone who’s with an artist should figure that you will show up in their work in one way or another (though some would hope not so blatantly), but it almost sounds like she dates these bros just to get a story to write a song about. Don’t get me wrong – I still think she gets more of a hard time than she would if she was a man, but I think she needs to take a deep breath for a moment.

10Nick Lachey Advises Boy Bands To Stay Away From Taylor Swift; I Advise The World To Stay Away From Nick Lachey
You may remember Nick Lachey from 98 Degrees or his marriage to Jessica Simpson. He’s done other things since, but they matter even less than the ones I mentioned. Because of this, you probably don’t care what he has to say about anything at all – especially not his thoughts on the Taylor Swift and Harry Styles romance. And yet, when asked what advice he would give to other boy bands (because, you know, 98 Degrees are still ruling the charts)…
From MTV News:
“Stay away from Taylor Swift!” Nick Lachey added. “She’ll write a song about you… Oh! I’m too late on that one. I didn’t get to [that advice] fast enough. [The song will] be a hit, but it will be about you.”
Yeah, because I’m sure you haven’t written a song about an ex. Oh wait, that’s right, you didn’t write your own songs. Shut up.
I won’t go on about how much it annoys me that Taylor is painted like this annoying harpy while Styles – who, and I’ll say it again, has had even more relationships/partners than Swift, I’m sure – is written off as some studly playboy in the prime of his youth. Is Taylor Swift obnoxious? Probably, but she’s also 24 so it’s kind of an oxy moron. Of course she doesn’t have her shit entirely together. Of course she’s a mess. We all were at that age, we just had the luxury of not having our every move studied by the press.
Anyway, Nick Lachey sucks. That’s really the whole point of this article.

Right, let’s just get right into this one: Taylor Swift has a new boyfriend every .5 seconds, but she’s starting to think she may end up being single forever and has no idea if she’ll ever be able to settle down. Speaking as if she’s saying something entirely new for someone in her early 20s, Taylor admitted that she doesn’t really know where she is in life or how she’s feeling at any given time. Yeah, welcome to young adulthood, lady.
“I’ve kind of realized that I have no idea where I’m going to be next year, or in six months, or in two months. mean, I know where I’ll be on tour in two months, but no idea where I’m going to be mentally, emotionally, dreams, goals, wishes, hopes.
“I have no idea if I’m going to get married or be single forever or have a family or just be on my own. You know, paint in a cottage by the ocean by myself. I just have no idea and I’m kind of into that.”
Is that going to happen? Most likely not, but if it does? Live it up, girl. There ain’t shit wrong with being on your own and doing your own thing, especially when you’re rich because then you can REALLY do whatever you want in life. Money buys happiness, didn’t you know? (SARCASM ALERT!) I say all this as someone who is happily taken for good, but when I was single, I wasn’t phased by it – nor was I out at clubs or bars looking for anyone else. I was sitting in my living room rolling blunts and watching Total Wipeout, so take that as you will.
Anyway, Taylor needs to realise that she’s young as hell and ain’t nobody trying to get hitched at 23 or 24 or whatever she is. Take time away from boyzzzz to find yourself, girl. You’ll be better for it – and probably a lot less annoying, as well.
