Yeah, Okay: Taylor Swift Doesn’t Read Reviews Because She’s Not Self-Obsessed

Listen, I’m not up my own ass, either, but if I was a performer, morbid curiosity would mean that I would have to look at shit people were saying about me in reviews, online, whatever. Sure, I’d probably get really mad and want to go on under a pseudonym to respond to my haters because they’re talking shit, but the point is, I would look. Wanting feedback on the work you’re doing doesn’t make you self-obsessed, it makes you human.

Anyway, Taylor Swift is claiming that she doesn’t read anything about herself ever and started chuntering on about ego and insecurity in the new issue of Glamour (via DS):

“You can be obsessed with the bad things people say and the good things, either way you’re obsessed with yourself and I’m not – you can become unhinged so easily,” Swift told Glamour magazine.

“Vanity can apply to both insecurity and egotism. So I distance myself, because I feel everything.

“The little I am exposed to hurts my feelings. The only things I can really control are my songs and my behavior. The rest? If I focused on it that would lead to insanity.”

Eh, I just don’t know if I buy it. I like TSwift and I think what she’s TRYING to say is right, I just don’t know that all that nobility talk is actually how things are in the real world. Maybe it is and I should give her more credit, but… eh.

Weird Casting: Taylor Swift Lands “The Giver” Role

taylor swift

Taylor Swift appeared on New Girl as herself and now she’s taking on a very different role. She’ll play a pivotal role in the film adaptation of the classic young adult novel The Giver. For those of you familiar with the book, Ms. Swift was cast as Rosemary.

This is such weird casting to me. Almost as weird as Ben Affleck being Batman. This is a “serious project” starring Academy Award winners Meryl Streep and Jeff Bridges. Then again, Katie Holmes is in it, too, which kind of drags the project down to a less golden status.

I have no idea how anyone could turn this into a movie without losing the magic of the twist in the book. Not sure if I want to find out. It’s The Giver, you guys. It’s my childhood. You too?

Taylor Swift’s Tour Is Almost Over, So Here’s a Video

Taylor Swift has been out touring in support of her Red album for what seems like years and is actually… yeah, nearly a couple of years, now. It’s coming to a close soon, and as a gift to her fans, she’s released a behind-the-scenes tour video showing off some of the dates and many of the celebrity guests who have joined her on stage at some of her shows. From Jennifer Lopez to Cher Lloyd and Ellie Goulding, Taylor definitely has plenty of famous friends to call on, but here’s the question: do you care?

I like Taylor and I like that album. I haven’t listened to it much since it first came out, really, but I find her songs inoffensive little pop numbers and it could be a LOT worse. That being said, well… there isn’t really anything else to say. While I don’t mind Taylor, I don’t necessarily care enough to need a “behind-the-scenes” look at her tour when I didn’t even see the front-of-scenes bit – you know, the actual concerts. I suppose it’s great for the TaySwift fans, though.

Harry Styles Expects Taylor Swift to Write Songs About Him

Taylor Swift has never been shy about revealing the details of her relationships in her songs, and Harry Styles has basically admitted that he knew that all along and is all ears for her songs about their short-lived relationship because he’s sure she’ll be writing them. She already sorta maybe wrote ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ about him (despite the fact that I imagine that song was written before they’d even met), and they weren’t even together all that long, so is there anything left to tell? Eh, who knows.

From US Weekly:

“It would be hypocritical for me to say she couldn’t do it because everybody writes songs based on personal experience,” the 19-year-old singer tells Us. “I can’t say I’d have dated someone less famous to avoid it.” The British heartthrob split from the “I Knew You Were Trouble” singer-songwriter in early January after a few months of dating.

Denying that he’s nervous about getting the John Mayer treatment (Swift slammed the musician in the song “Dear John” off her third studio album Speak Now in 2010) the “What Makes You Beautiful” singer jokes, “at least she’s a great songwriter!”

Well, at least he has a good sense of humour about it, or whatever? Hollywood is just so incestuous, man. Think about the fact that Taylor Swift was involved with John Mayer, who is now dating her good friend, Katy Perry. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, but it kinda makes me want to gag.

It’s Time For Taylor Swift to Build a Bridge and Get Over It

It’s great that Taylor Swift has a sense of humour and all. She’s “goofy” and “quirky” and can laugh at herself and I like her, I do. However, she really, really needs to move on with her life and get over shit. Her good friend and totally not boyfriend Ed Sheeran (no really, he’s not) posted a photo on Instagram yesterday revealing Taylor’s culinary skills. She made him a jar of jam, but the label… girl, the label.

We get it. The Kanye thing was huge. He stole your big moment, it was a big-to do… but it was also four years ago now. He’s been vilified non-stop and you’ve had your moment since then about ten times over. It’s the joke that’s just not funny anymore, if it ever was.

I mean, am I wrong here? Am I missing out on some kind of hilarity? Please let me know.

Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez Aren’t Fighting Over Justin Bieber

Well, they’re not fighting over him or about him. You know what I mean. We all know how Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift are totally BFFs who are more like sisters than anything else and OMG they’re just so close that nothing could tear them apart. However, something reportedly did tear them apart, and that parasite was Justin Bieber. Particularly, Selena’s continuing association with him because he’s a total asshole and everyone can see it but her.

You can rest your weary hearts, however, because they’re just fine. In fact, this story was such a big deal that Taylor’s spokesperson actually gave the following statement on it:

Selena and Taylor are great friends who talk almost daily.

Well, that clears that one up. I think it’s stupid for friends to fall out because one doesn’t like the person the other one is dating, though I think this is a tough one because Justin is totally the worst. Still, if you hate him so much, just tell Selena you don’t really want to talk about him because he’s a doucher and then live your best life.

Anyway, I don’t think this is an issue now anyway since he’s got a new model girlfriend, right?

Taylor Swift Uppercut Herself, Chipped a Tooth

Taylor Swift is currently on tour in support of her most recent album, Red, and was performing in Pittsburgh last month when she accidentally uppercut herself Mortal Kombat-style and chipped a tooth. Well, that sounds painful… and sort of hard to do. Luckily, someone took video of the incident (above), so we’re all privy to what happened. Also luckily, she’s a multi-millionaire so she can pay to have it fixed.

Here’s what Tay had to say to Rolling Stone about the incident the next night, after she’d performed in another city:

Tonight I was particularly hung up on not chipping another tooth like last show in Pittsburgh, definitely. It had a tip on [the tooth] and it doesn’t anymore. I try to be really quick with the microphone, so I’m not standing there just waiting to sing with my mic right next to my face, so I really quickly pulled my mic up to sing and basically uppercut punched myself in the tooth. And then part of it fell onto the stage and I was like, “Oh, I wonder how bad that was. I wonder which tooth that is and I wonder how bad that is,” and I was just trying not to chip another one tonight. I’m not doing anything about it. It’s just gonna be a little bit jagged, I guess.

Damn, girl. That sounds pretty painful. Also, it’s reminded me that I really need to make a dentist appointment for sometime this month. Gotta keep those pearly whites gleamin’!
