Taylor Swift bought a big-ass mansion on the beach, like right on the freaking beach, and apparently people have been getting too close to her house because of the fact that it’s on the goddamn beach and people like to be on the beach. She got security but she also got a sense of humor. Check out the sign she posted:
Maybe this will endear her to her neighbors, as,
The increased security around her home has already caused some tension with locals after residents were reportedly barred from entering an area of East Beach, close to the border of Swift’s property. (Contact Music.)
Still, she’s gotta be a better neighbor than Justin Bieber.
But who would YOU rather live next door to?

Taylor Swift has come a long way from the country bumpkin she once (read: never) was. She’s a full-blown pop star now, and it was her latest album, Red, and the single ‘We Are Never Ever Ever Getting Back Together’ that really marked her crossover. I like TSwift and yes, even her music, but you can imagine some country fans might not be too happy with her decision to move further away from her musical roots. Not so! Taylor actually thinks country fans have been super supportive and have contributed to her evolution.
“I think one of the things that I’m happiest with, in the last year, is the acceptance level in country music for me experimenting and for me trying to evolve and challenge myself musically,” she says of her transition to a bonafide global superstar.
She adds, “I think it’s never felt better to be on that stadium stage performing knowing that everyone’s been so welcoming of change.”
Fair enough. Taylor gets a hard rap sometimes but she’s generally harmless. Sure, she can be obnoxious and cringe-worthy and all that, but what early 20-something isn’t? Now we just need to make sure she stays well away from Gwyneth Paltrow.

Taylor Swift has a lot going on, and probably doesn’t even care about Abercrombie & Fitch’s dig at her, but her fans do. Abercrombie & Fitch really doesn’t give a flying f-ck about customers. They’ve made it clear that if you’re fat, “try Sears” (okay, that was a Mean Girls quote, but you know they were thinking that).
So what’s the latest controversy? Some t-shirt that pokes fun at Taylor Swift. And not very well. From Zimbio:
The “drama” started when fans noticed an Abercrombie shirt that said, “# more boyfriends than t.s.,” mocking Swift and her reputation for cycling through relationships. That’s a big no-no when it comes to the pop star’s fans, better known as Swifties among their own kind. An army of Swifties took to YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and even petition site Change.org to launch a PR nightmare on the clothing retailer with the expressed purpose of having the shirt discontinued.
Success! The social media onslaught and repeated calls to corporate worked. The shirt is “no longer available” according to Abercrombie’s PR line.
Where’s Frances Bean when you actually need her?
Plus, shouldn’t the shirt actually read, “More ex-boyfriends than t.s.”?

Gwyneth Paltrow and Taylor Swift are apparently BFF now and let me tell you something, if this was all one big high school cafeteria, I would avoid the everloving f-ck out of their table. Gwyneth, over a plate of aubergines, would be complaining about how embarrassing it is to beautiful, as Taylor would eagerly nod her head and then ask if she should send another “Do you like me? Check ‘yes’ ‘no’ ‘maybe’” note to the cute guy in geometry.
According to Fishwrapper,
During a recent performance stopover in London, Taylor managed to squeeze in some good, old-fashioned girl time, and with it, probably triggered a whole plethora of rumors about the status of Gwyneth and Chris Martin’s marriage.
They also add (jokingly?) that Gwyneth and Taylor have been “friends” for “years”. “Years”? Gwyneth is 20+ years older than Taylor. About 3 years ago, Swift couldn’t even legally share a glass of organic thousand dollar wine with Paltrow. Unless an underage Swift was with her in England, of course, Gwyneth’s fake motherland.

I mean, who could blame her? A lot of people hate Taylor Swift, too, I know, but she’s far less reprehensible than that shirtless pseudo-thug baby. Anyhoo, y’all know by now that Taylor and Selena Gomez are BFFs, which kinda creates a problem since she may or may not be back with Bieber. What we do know is that they shared a little cheek kiss at the Billboard Music Awards and Taylor’s reaction to that is classic:
She was even asked by reporters backstage what she thought of that award Bieber got (and got booed for getting) and she just asked for the next question. Love that shade. But there’s more!
From Access Hollywood (via US Weekly):
Asked by Access Hollywood after the awards show what she and Gomez, 20 were whispering to each other while Bieber, 19 accepted two of his awards (during one, the “Take You” singer was met with boos from the audience), Swift, 23, was quick to answer.
“Ohhh, you do not want to know!” she said, shaking her head and looking down at the floor. “You do not want to open that can of worms. Especially tonight.”
When the reporter then suggested that Swift should write a song about it, she laughed before adding, “No, it’s not [me] … I’m fine!”

Taylor Swift is picked on for all kinds of things these days, so why not start analyzing her boobs, right? So there are some “plastic surgeons” who are saying that it’s “pretty obvious” that Ms. Swift has increased a full cup size. Because no A-cupped gal has ever, ever worn a padded push up bra from Victoria’s Secret, ever.
From In Touch via Celebrity Plastic Surgery Photos:
A plastic surgeon, who hasn’t met the singer/songwriter, told In Touch magazine he thinks the country pop star increased her bust size from an A to a B cup. The magazine goes on to suggest that Swift had surgery in April 2012.
We think Swift probably had a good stylist who helped her look more endowed than usual. They are capable of pulling of some major fashion feats.
Agreed with the stylist comment. Yes, she definitely looks bigger chested when comparing this photo of her in this sleek gown to this striped dress, and I’m pretty sure that’s the result of a padded bra.
But let’s listen to this expert:
“The country star appears to be following in the footsteps of another female country singer, Dolly Parton, and enhanced her breasts,” plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn tells HollywoodLife.com.
Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Fleming agrees, adding, “I think it’s pretty obvious that’s she’s had breast enhancement. It looks very nice and proportional.”
SERIOUSLY, I honestly had to double check and make sure these weren’t photos of Dolly Parton and then when I was sure it was not Dolly Parton, I thought, whoa, then this must be Courtney Stodden. I mean, just look!
When the hell would Taylor Swift have had time to get implants and heal well enough to the point where she could go out and not have obvious swelling and/or scars? She’s been pretty damn busy with photo shoots and touring and performing and making TV appearances and breast implant surgery is kind of a big deal; it’s not like getting a facial. That’s why this doesn’t make sense to me. They’re claiming that she got them in April 2012, but if you look at photos of her from like, oh I don’t know, 2 weeks ago or even 2 days ago she doesn’t look bigger than beyond what a bra/those sticky cutlet things could achieve. It doesn’t add up. I think it’s way more likely that it’s an undergarment thing and not surgery. …but who knows?
THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE.
I WANT TO BELIEVE.
TRUST NO ONE.
