Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss cover Vogue

It’s here! It’s here! It’s Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss on the cover of Vogue, just like you never knew you always wanted! If you ‘ship Taylor and Karlie as that secret couple everyone thought they were or just as BFFs, you’ll be happy to see them doing their road trippin’, BFF-in’ thing in the pages and on the cover of the new issue of Vogue.

Here are some cool facts you’ll learn in the interview:

—They first met backstage at the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Lily Aldridge introduced the pair and upon meeting Swift said, “You. My friend. Now.” Swift has a Polaroid picture of the two hugging on her photo wall and the caption reads “Best Friends Forever VS2013” in Sharpie.

– Swift started spending so much time with her female friends because of the way she was being portrayed in the media as a man-eater. “I was really irritated by the whole serial-dater play that people tried to make about me.”

– Taylor Swift’s philosophy for making friends is “basically, wear ‘em down till they like you.”

– Swift follows the five-second rule.

Lena Dunham, another member of this particular girl posse, says Swift is just, like, the bestest friend ever: “Even if she’s in Hong Kong on tour and I’m going through something, if I text her, I get an answer in two seconds. If something good happens to me—say, I get a nomination, or it’s my birthday, or the day before my birthday, or my book comes out—I get a text from Taylor way before I get a text from my mom.”

That all sounds very exciting, now doesn’t it? Here are all the fancy pics that went along with the shoot – and there are TONS.

Taylor Swift releases ‘Style’ video and it’s great!

taylor swift style

I have no shame in saying that I absolutely love Taylor Swift‘s latest album, 1989, and think it’s brilliant. I’ve always loved ‘Style’ – it was one of my favs of the album. And it seems Taylor’s team agreed, because it’s the latest single!

The video for ‘Style’ wasn’t supposed to come out until tomorrow, but MuchMusic released it early and I ganked their embed code so you can see it, too. Enjoy!

P.S. I absolutely love that pretty much this entire album is about Harry Styles. Cracks me up.

Kanye West is planning a collaboration with Taylor Swift

I don’t know when exactly the switched flipped in Kanye West‘s brain that turned him from an incredibly focused, prolific artist to a raving lunatic, but I’m sick of it, and I think it’s pretty safe to say the rest of the world is, too. After his latest stunt at the Grammys on Sunday, Kanye felt the need to make waves again on Wednesday during an interview with Ryan Seacrest, where he revealed that he’s planning to go into the studio with none other than Taylor Swift.

Would you collaborate with Taylor Swift?

Yeah, she wants to get in the studio and we’re definitely going to go in. Any artist with an amazing point of view, perspective, fan base, I’m down to get in the studio and work. I don’t discriminate, I don’t have an elitism of music because of like how many Grammys or you know, the amount of ratings you get on an album. I that think everyone loves music whether they love hip-hop, alternative, country, and if I could be involved in giving people any type of energy, advice in the studio, whether you’re Beyonce, whether you’re Taylor Swift, whether you’re Jay Z, whether you’re Beck, whoever, and they can be reciprocal with that, I’d like to be involved with that.

Oh, so now Taylor Swift counts as an artist? Fuck off, Kanye. He’s not a music elitist, but Beyonce is the best artist of all time (besides himself, natch) and Beck doesn’t count? This guy is the worst. What’s even worse is the fact that he clearly lacks self-awareness so severely that he doesn’t even realise the ridiculousness of the crap coming out of his mouth.

Let’s hope this collab never comes to be. I know Taylor has her own issues, but I’d hate to see her lower herself to this bullshit – and it IS bullshit.

Katy Perry throws shade at Taylor Swift in ‘Elle’

katy perry elle

Oh God, I’m so, so bored of the Katy Perry and Taylor Swift feud. It’s the most boring, vanilla celebrity bullshit in the entire world. They used to be really close, then Katy stole Taylor’s dancers for some tour or something (but didn’t really steal them because they apparently worked for Katy first) and now it’s some whole thing that is seriously putting me to sleep just to type. And that’s coming from someone who likes them both.

Katy was rumoured to be planning a big “Gotcha!” at Taylor’s expense during the Super Bowl, which never happened (though apparently the dancing sharks had something to do with it?). Instead, Katy shot off at the mouth to Elle magazine, where she cast not-so-subtle shade in Taylor’s direction for being seen as America’s sweetheart.

“You’ve got to name someone the villain, someone the princess, someone the mom-, the dad-type—you know there always have to be characters. As pop figures, we’re all characters. And the media uses that. Who is the sweetheart, who is the villain? You know. Taylor‘s the sweetheart. Kanye‘s the villain. That’s the narrative.”

I mean, why even bring Kanye into this? Trying to position yourself as super progressive and cool, Katy? To me, this just reads like someone who’s a bit butt hurt about Taylor’s success (despite her own), but whatever.

I’m over this nonsense, and both of them need to be, as well, because Taylor is petty, too. Grow up, ladies.

Taylor Swift trademarked ‘This Sick Beat’

Taylor Swift‘s ‘Shake It Off’ did really well in the charts – and for good reason, because it’s a damn catchy song. There’s that part in the song where she talks about how “you should’ve been getting down to THIS.SICK.BEAT.” and that part was apparently so memorable to Taylor herself that she decided to trademark the phrase “this sick beat” with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Yes, seriously.

I’m not quite sure what Taylor plans to do with this trademark, to be honest – especially considering she’s hardly the first person to use the phrase “this sick beat” (though I certainly hope she’s the last). I can’t even believe they let her do this! I’m going to go and file a trademark something random, too… if only I could think of something clever.

Taylor Swift’s Twitter got hacked and her DMs are really boring

Taylor Swift is the eternal darling of the pop music world, a goody two-shoes amongst the debauched. It turns out, that’s not just image. After having her Twitter (and Instagram!) accounts hacked over the weekend while she was busy proving to the world that she has a belly button while on vacation in Hawaii. The hacker shared a few of her DMs with some other celebs – Nick Jonas, some pop artist named BØRNS and YouTube star PewDiePie – and man, are they boring.

Taylor Swift DMs

“Dinner/drinks/gambling? Are we bad kids now?” Wow, juicy stuff.

I suppose it’s rather comforting to know that Taylor Swift really seems to be the same person as a public persona and in her private life. All of these messages are so boring and run-of-the mill – not that I think Taylor is dumb enough to put her deep and personal secrets in a Twitter DM, knowing how easy it is to get hacked, but somehow I don’t think things get any juicier than this, to be honest.

The hacker, Twitter user @tempveri, has now had his account suspended, but prior to, he was threatening to release Taylor’s nudes. The only problem? They don’t exist.


Nice! For the record, it was Paramore’s Hayley Williams that alerted Taylor to the hack, because Hollywood ladies stick together.

Breaking news: Taylor Swift DOES have a belly button (and Diplo is terrified of it)

taylor swift

Taylor Swift made a point a while back in saying that she always wears high-waisted pants because she can’t commit to showing belly button. Once you show belly button, it’s a whole other kettle of fish and she wasn’t quite ready to commit.

Until now, that is. While on vacation with Haim (an excellent band, for the unfamiliar), Taylor finally let herself go and posed in a two piece bikini. SHE HAS A BELLY BUTTON, WORLD! It’s a miracle! Yes, this was apparently big news this weekend – it was a slow one.

Since there’s not much else to the bikini story, there IS more to Taylor’s saga with Diplo. As you know, Katy Perry‘s maybe-sometimes boyfriend was talking shit about Taylor on Twitter a few months ago, but now it’s getting a bit more serious. You see, Diplo says he knows way too many of Taylor’s “secrets” and he’s “scared for his life” because of it, as he told GQ.

“She has like 40 million Twitter fans. Forty million! Yeah. It’s crazy. I’m a fan though. Her powers — she’s big. She’s strong, bro. Taylor Swift is very strategic with her friends and enemies. And I know lots of secrets. I can’t divulge, but I know a lot of stuff about her. And she’s definitely, there’s definitely scary stuff going on. And I’m scared. I’m scared for my life.”

Diplo, shut the hell up for once in your life. He’s been THE WORST since back in the M.I.A. saga days, and he just gets worse with time. A grown ass man is going on like this, guys – and that’s really sad. Even if I didn’t like Taylor Swift, I’d still think that – grow up, dude.
