Young celebrities are richer than ever

Forbes released their annual list of the highest earning celebrities under the age of 30 this week, and perhaps unsurprisingly, they’re mostly all pop stars. They base the list off of their Celebrity 100 list and research they gathered to put that one together, so without further ado, prepare to cry yourself to sleep over your stack of student loans and leftover Thanksgiving food tonight as you realize just how much money these young people have and how much you (we) don’t:

1. Justin Bieber, age 20, $80 million
2. One Direction, average age 21, $75 million
3. Taylor Swift, age 24, $64 million
4. Bruno Mars, age 29, $60 million
5. Rihanna, age 26, $48 million
6. Miley Cyrus, age 21, $36 million
7. Jennifer Lawrence, age 24, $34 million
8. Lady Gaga, age 28, $33 million
9. Avicii, age 25, $28 million
10. Skrillex, age 26, $18 million

Please tell me how on God’s green earth SKRILLEX made $18 million. Like, how is that just? How is it even possible? My mind is blown. Avicii is another surprise. I know people were nuts about ‘Wake Me Up’ and ‘Hey, Brother’… but $28 million worth of crazy? I mean, damn.

Taylor Swift dresses for girls, not boys

I don’t know that anyone would, by any stretch of the imagination, refer to Taylor Swift as a fashion plate or anything of the sort. She’s incredibly tall and thin, making her a great vessel for great clothes, and she always looks nice in what she wears, but she’s not presenting us with groundbreaking fashion or anything. Still, ASOS magazine, put out by the fashion retailer of the same name, seems to think she’s a worthy candidate for their cover and they’ve brought us one of the tackiest photoshoots I’ve seen in ages. Seriously – what in 1970s discotheque hell?

Photos aside, the feature also has an interview in which Taylor insists that she’s never dressing up for boys with what she wears and in fact she’s more concerned with what her girlfriends think:

“When I’m getting dressed, it’s always based on what my friends will think. They are my number one priority and the opinions of girls are more important to me at this point in my life.”

Well, it’s good that she’s not dressing for boys, but how about only dressing for YOURSELF? Girls can be judgmental as shit, as well, even your “friends”, so the best way to ensure that you’re looking and feeling your best is to wear what YOU feel most comfortable and confident in. Then again, I get that this quote is just furtherance of her “Girls rule, boys drool” message she seems to be pushing in the past couple of years, so I guess I’ll give her a pass for now.

Enjoy the rest of these hot mess pictures!

Katy Perry tried to sic Diplo on Taylor Swift

katy perry diplo taylor swift

One of the biggest mysteries in life, to me, is why people are so damn corny. For instance, why do grown ass adults – adults who are rich and famous and have far better things to worry about than petty “feuds” with former friends & fellow artists, you would think – waste their time on stupid childhood bullying shit?

Case in point: We all know Katy Perry and Taylor Swift are no longer buddies, but instead of just making sly remarks to each other on Twitter, Katy’s taken it one step further by having her possible boyfriend Diplo tweet out nasty shit about her, like that he was starting a Kickstarter to buy Taylor an ass. Uh… okay, cornball.

Like, LOL I guess, but you’re a grown ass man. Whether or not Katy put him up to it (and y’all know I am a not-so-closeted KatyCat, so I hate to think this of my Queen), Diplo needs to reevaluate his life and consider the fact that he’s sending bullying tweets to Taylor Swift, whose album has sold more in one week than anything he’s ever worked on will do in his lifetime. While I’m sure Taylor’s not phased by the shade, it’s really pathetic that this is what this dude spends his time on. Not here for it.

Also, cool insult. It’s totally not stupid and fucked up to criticize a woman’s body at all. After all, Taylor Swift exists for your viewing pleasure, and if you want her to have an ass, she should have one! Just please, no one tell him that his girlfriend doesn’t really have one, either… I’ve always thought Diplo was a bit of a dickhead, but now I’m sure of it. BYE.

UPDATE!!!!! Lorde weighs in on Diplo’s “tiny penis”:

Taylor Swift goes psycho in ‘Blank Space’ video

taylor swift blank page video

Taylor Swift‘s 1989 is probably the best pop album of the year, maybe the past two years (at least). Seriously, it’s that good. I pretty much love every song on the album, save for Welcome to New York, but that’s just because I’ve lived there for 13 years and that doe-eyed naivité thing about it hasn’t been my bag for over a decade. But that’s neither here nor there! What’s important is that this album is FULL of hits, so she can ride on this one for a long while.

Her new single, ‘Blank Space’, is supposed to be an homage to the psycho alter-ego the press seems to report of her when she’s in a relationship/just ending a relationship. TayTay likes to have fun, so she played on that for the music video, which leaked a day early (oopsies!) and had been watched by a zillion people before anyone realised they weren’t supposed to have seen it yet. Ah, well.

I’m not a fan of music videos in general – I prefer to just listen to the damn song and I don’t need a visual to go along with it – but as these things go, this is a lot of fun and I ain’t mad at it, as they say. I mean, if brought us faces like these:

That can’t be a bad thing. What do you think of ‘Blank Space’ and the video?

Taylor Swift is still messed up from her relationship with Harry Styles

taylor swift

We’re all pretty much on the same page that most of the songs on 1989 are about Harry Styles, right? Taylor Swift has admitted that her relationship with him – which ended back in January 2013 – was the last relationship she actually had, and ever since then she’s actually sworn off dating and plans to spend the rest of her life alone. Given that it’s nearly 2 years after the fact and she’s still feeling this way, there’s only one conclusion: he really fucked her up good and proper.

From Cosmopolitan UK:

Singing about the ‘daydream James Dean look’ in his eyes and how they will ‘never go out of style’, it couldn’t be more obviously (or sweetly) about One Direction’s Harry Styles. Not that she’ll be going back there… “I’ve learnt that just because someone is cute and wants to date you, that’s not a reason to sacrifice your independence and allow everyone to say whatever they want about you. I’m not doing that anymore.”

In fact she’s done with dating full stop for now, declaring: “It’d take someone really special for me to undergo the circumstances I have to go through to experience a date. I don’t know how I would ever have another person in my world trying to have a relationship with me, or a family. The best answer I can come up with now is ‘go at it alone. Life can be romantic without having a romance. I’m very attracted to how happy I am now.”

Well, obviously Taylor is still really young and it’s way too soon to say something so definite. However, I do think it’s incredibly difficult to have a successful relationship when you’re in the industry like she is. How could she? She’s constantly touring, being interviewed, having to meet fans, traveling around the world… it’s not really conducive to a loving and fulfilling relationship. Eventually, she’ll probably have to choose.

Taylor Swift is taking over the world

Taylor Swift only released her new album, 1989, on Monday, but she’s already basically killing all your favs and then some. She sold over half a million albums in under 24 hours, and considering how many people illegally downloaded it (thereby not counting in the sales), that’s AMAZING.

Definitely well deserved since, as I said the other day, it’s an EXCELLENT pop album and is already in my Top 5 albums of the year, for sure. I haven’t met a single person – TSwift fan or not – who doesn’t absolutely love it. This might be the most popular album of the year (and the only one to go platinum, since no other albums have so far).

Taylor Swift will destroy Katy Perry’s Super Bowl halftime show

taylor swift katy perry

Katy Perry and Taylor Swift used to be quite good friends only a few short years ago. Then things got ugly when Katy apparently stole some of Taylor’s dancers for her tour, and then Taylor dissed Katy publicly about it and blah blah blah. Now, the feud continues, because apparently Taylor is planning to try anything she can to sabotage Katy’s upcoming performance at the Super Bowl halftime show this winter.

An entertainment insider tells RadarOnline.com exclusively that both singers have been using the same concert tour director and production designer, Baz Halpin, for years.

“Baz did Taylor’s most recent RED tour and the Speak Now tour, and he did California Dreamz and the current Prism tour for Katy,” notes the source.

And now that Perry, who will celebrate her 30th birthday on October 25, has scored the high-profile Super Bowl XLVIV Halftime Show, she’s asked Halpin to design it. “He’s working out the money details right now, but it’s obviously a huge career highlight for him and he wouldn’t pass up the chance to do it,” says the insider.

That dedication to Perry isn’t exactly sitting well with 24-year-old Taylor. “She got word of Baz agreeing to do the show for Katy and Taylor’s flat out said she will not hire him ever again for any performance or tour if he goes ahead with his decision.”

The insider says that Halpin would “be nuts not do the gig” and there’s no way he’ll pass it up.

As for Perry’s thoughts on the subject? “Katy got word of Taylor’s ‘ultimatum’ and found it quite amusing.”

Oh, brother. I don’t know if any of this is true or why it even matters, but whatever. Taylor has got her own shit going on – 1989 is out and she’s headlining the New Years Rockin’ Eve celebrations here in NYC. Relax, everyone.
