But A Few People Looked OK at The Billboard Music Awards

Like Taylor Swift here. Taylor Swift looked ok at the Billboard Music Awards. In fact, I’d wager that she had the best look of the night, generally speaking. I really like her dress, and it obviously looks great on her.

Another lady who had a good look was Brandy, but to be honest, I can’t decide if I actually like her dress or if I just think she looks nice because I’ve always been envious of hair like that. Regardless, gold shoes!

Next up is Jordin Sparks, who I’ve always thought was completely adorable, wearing a lovely little dress. This one is remarkable because it’s one of the only dresses I’ve ever seen on a red carpet that I would actually like to wear in real life:

Then there’s one of our favorite ladies, Zooey Deschanel, going after my own heart in a sparkly dress and black tights:

But then we have my personal favorite dress, worn by the very fabulous Carrie Underwood:

But which one was your favorite?

Everyone’s Talking About Taylor Swift’s Boobs

See? It’s because they look bigger now.

From Hollywood Life:

Taylor Swift may be known for her wholesome image and tearful love songs about boys that have broken her heart, but it seems the country cutie has jumped on the Beverly Hills bandwagon and had some plastic surgery. And you know what, I applaud her!

Taylor obviously felt self-conscious about the size of her breasts, so she did something about it!

Dr. Anthony Youn estimates that Taylor increased her cup size from a small A to a striking C.

“It looks very nice and proportional,” adds Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Fleming.

Going up two cup sizes makes an obvious difference on Taylor’s tiny frame. Thankfully she didn’t overdo it a la Heidi Montag! While getting plastic surgery is indeed a personal decision, Taylor has a history of being open with her fans. She wasn’t ashamed to share when Joe Jonasbroke up with her over text message and she openly sang about John Mayer breaking her heart, so why is Taylor being so tight-lipped about getting implants?

Fake breasts in Hollywood are as commonplace as Starbucks. After next week, three of the eight Teen Moms will even have them! Instead of hiding her surgery, Taylor should use this as an opportunity to create a dialogue about body image with her young fans.

I don’t know. I mean, she obviously looks bigger, but I really didn’t think Taylor Swift would be the kind of girl to get breast implants. If she is, more power to her, but she’s worked so hard on her squeaky clean image and that middle school vibe that implants just seem really out of place.

But again, here’s Taylor on April 2nd:

And here she is on April 23rd:

What do you think? The photos were taken three weeks apart, so would that be enough time to get the surgery and heal up enough to go out in a cute, tight dress? Based on my extensive viewing of Bridalplasty, I’m pretty sure it is.

Taylor Swift Might Play Joni Mitchell in A Movie

A photo of Taylor Swift

Sometimes something happens that makes me roll my eyes so hard and for so long that I worry that they might get stuck mid-roll. That seriously happens: I roll my eyes long enough to have time to consider what would happen if my eyeballs got permanently stuck the wrong way. Roll your eyes and think about how long that takes. Whatever caused the initial eye roll has got to be some intense bullshit to start that cycle, right?

This time, it’s the fact that Taylor Swift is apparently in talks to play Joni Mitchell in an upcoming film:

Taylor Swift is circling the role of Joni Mitchell in Sony Pictures and Di Bonaventura Pictures’ adaptation of Sheila Weller’s book “Girls Like Us,” which would mark the pop star’s first turn in a bigscreen drama.Pic examines the careers of singers Mitchell, Carly Simon and Carole King. Swift does not have an official offer, but has been linked to the Mitchell role for several months as other actresses have auditioned to play Simon and King, including Alison Pill (“Midnight in Paris”) for the latter singer.

“House” exec producer Katie Jacobs, who optioned the book several years ago, is directing from a script by John Sayles. Lorenzo di Bonaventura (“Transformers”) is set to produce the Sony pic, which has not yet been greenlit, though it is tentatively skedded to start production later this year when the three leads’ schedules allow for filming.

Swift, who’s currently featured on “The Hunger Games” soundtrack, made her feature acting debut in ensemble rom-com “Valentine’s Day,” and recently voiced a role in Universal’s “The Lorax.” Before that, she appeared as herself in the 2009 Miley Cyrus vehicle “Hannah Montana: The Movie.”

No, Taylor. Please, no. Anything but this. I just got over the trauma I experienced when it was reported that you were going to play Eponine in the Les Miserables movie, and now this? Now you’re trying to ruin Joni Mitchell? That beautiful, inspiring legend of a woman, Joni Mitchell? I just can’t.

But what do you guys think?

And Here We Have A Video of Taylor Swift And Her Cat

I’ll say this much about Taylor Swift: she can be pretty cute sometimes. But you know who pulls off cute way, way better? Her cat, Meredith. Meredith is a zillion times cuter than Taylor could ever even dream of being, and it’s clear who the real star of this video is.

By the way, this video? Hush, Taylor Swift. I really appreciate you for showing off one of the most precious kitties I’ve ever seen, but you need to stop pretending like you don’t know you’ll win this Entertainer of the Year award at the ACM Awards again this year. I swear, if I have to see your surprised face one more time, I may very well lose my mind. And that would never do, because then how could I cleverly plot out how to kidnap your cat?

You guys. That cat.

Taylor Swift Made How Much Money Last Year?

A photo of Taylor Swift

Look at Taylor Swift up there, frolicking on the beach, looking so happy and carefree, without a care in the world! Why does she look so happy? Because she really doesn’t have a care in the world. Because Taylor Swift made almost 36 million dollars last year. Just think about that for a moment, how much money that is. Can you even fathom it? Do you need a little help? Ok, that’s more money than Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and Adele made last year. Combined.

From MTV:

Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Adele had huge years in 2011, with major tours, strings of hit singles, Grammy wins and #1-hogging chart-topping albums. But when Billboard magazine compiled its 2012 list of “Music’s Top 40 Money Makers” it was Taylor Swift who ruled them all. In fact, the 22-year-old country-pop darling out-earned all of her fellow ladies combined.

According to the magazine’s calculations, Swift earned her #1 spot on the list thanks to reported earnings of $35.7 million in the 2011 calendar year. Those earnings came from a combination of revenue from the quadruple-platinum-plus sales of Speak Now and its accompanying tour, which grossed $88.5 million in the U.S. alone.

But because Swift writes her own songs, she rolled up a big chunk of change in songwriting royalties as well.

Right behind Swift was iconic rock band U2, who earned a reported $32.1 million thanks to their record-setting 360 Tour — which grossed a whopping $736 million total over two years — including $50 million in merchandise sales and 1.4 million in digital track sales.

Country singer Kenny Chesney was #3 with $29.8 million, followed by previous tally topper Gaga at #4 with $25.3 million. She stayed in the top 5 thanks to sales of Born This Way and its accompanying Monster Ball Tour, which grossed more than $51 million. She also moved 12.7 million digital tracks. Lil Wayne rounded out the top 5 with $23.1 million, made up of 12.3 million digital track sales, $44.7 million in tour grosses and cash from his gig as founder of Young Money Entertainment.

The rest of the top 10: Sade (#6, $16.3 million), Bon Jovi (#7, $15.8 million), Celine Dion (#8, $14.2 million) andJason Aldean (#9, $13.4 million). Adele rounded out the top 10 list at #10 with $13 million, mostly from the unstoppable streak of her 21 album’s chart run,? which included sales of 6.7 million copies last year alone.

The “Glee” cast were just outside the top 10 at #11 ($12.5 million), Katy Perry hit #14 ($11.9 million), Britney Spears was at #16 ($10 million) and like her sisters in pop, Rihanna made it to #22 ($7.6 million) through a combination of album and single sales and touring revenue.

Other notable entries: Enrique Iglesias (#23, $7.4 million), Usher (#30, $6.2 million), Foo Fighters (#31, $6 million), Justin Bieber (#35, $5.5 million), Kanye West (#39, $5.3 million) and Linkin Park (#40, $5.1 million).

Billboard calculated the figures based on proprietary data from its Boxscore archives for concert grosses, Nielsen SoundScan for sales of physical and digital albums, singles and ringtone sales, and Nielsen BDS for terrestrial radio play and streaming service information.

I was going to get really annoyed by Taylor Swift’s popularity like I do, but then I saw that Kenny Chesney is third on this list, above Lady Gaga and all those other insanely popular ladies I previously mentioned. So there’s no way on earth that this could be accurate, right? Kenny Chesney? Really?

Love It or Leave It: This is How Taylor Swift Wooed Tim Tebow

Come on, don’t act as if you didn’t know. Tim Tebow is totally using Taylor Swift for her body, duh. Jake Gyllenhaal? Took the risk of being the brunt of Taylor Swift‘s passive-aggressive songs just for the pleasure of being able to run his hand down her … spine.

Now don’t get me wrong: I didn’t say that they were, like, going to do it or anything (the outrage! the scandal!). It’s just that Tim’s got someone to focus his fantasies on – even if he’s not going to act them out – and Taylor? Well. She’s just the perfect little subject, now, isn’t she? And eyewitnesses say that Tim and Taylor’s date (bad, bad Home Improvement flashback right there, guys) went really, really well:

Oh, wait, sorry, not that. This:

A source told Us Weekly: ”There were no public displays of affection between Taylor and Tim, but she surely looked happy to be there.” Another insider added: ”Yes, she has a crush on him. She is a massive fan, but I don’t think he sees her that way.”

During the two-hour meal, the ‘Mean’ hitmaker was spotted sipping on a cafe latte, while the Denver Broncos quarterback enjoyed chicken paillard, fettuccine bolognese and cappellini.

However, the blonde beauty is said to have embarked on a ”friendship” with the 24-year-old hunk, rather than a romance. The source added: ”They actually have been speaking a lot about the Bible and Christianity. Right now it’s on the friendship tip – even though that frustrates her.”

So, Taylor sat around drinking coffee while Tim ate, what, for both of them? Sigh! I remember those days – back in high school. It was so uncool to have a guy you were dating see you eat. I mean, what was less hot back then – letting the object of your adolescent affections see you shove something in a hole in the middle of your face while chewing and gnawing, gnashing your teeth and having it ultimately be something that sounds like ‘masturbating’ (masticating)? Oh Taylor. How you make me smile with your young-at-heart … heart.

More importantly, how do y’all like Swifty in her bikini, frolicking down under like it ain’t no thing? Check out the gallery for more photos of Taylor from all angles on the beach.

Guess Who Taylor Swift is Dating?

photo of tim tebow pictures photos dating taylor swift pics
If you guys don’t know who this dude is, you apparently don’t watch a whole lot of football. This would be Tim Tebow, the quarterback for the Denver Broncos, and he’s rumored to be dating Taylor Swift.

Our friends at Celebuzz initially reported that the pair were seen getting cozy at a pre-Oscar party, as you can see here:

Taylor Swift was spotted chatting up one of football’s most eligible bachelor. Who was it?

Tim Tebow, of course! Our insider told us that Taylor, who was spotted rocking a black dress, spent most of her evening talking to the hunky quarterback. “They were together for almost an hour,” adds the insider. “She approached Tim and he looked more than happy to be talking with her.”

And now, Clevver News is reporting that the two were seen out to dinner earlier this week, looking quite the couple:

Sweet, right? I don’t quite know. Tim is America’s football’s savior, and Taylor is America’s wannabe sweetheart (who sings country, nonetheless), so it’d just make so much sense for the two of them to get together, right? Look at Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson. Or Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush. Bliss, right? Plus, Tim claims that he’s a virgin, and you know that Taylor has just got to be – otherwise, she’d be married by now, but … I don’t know. I’m just not as tickled by this as I thought I’d be.

Also, let’s not pretend that one of your first thoughts wasn’t “Aww, how sweet – Taylor Tebow. She’s probably writing it all over her notebooks and guitars and, you know, skin.”
