Stop accusing Taylor Swift of dating Karlie Kloss

taylor swift karlie kloss

The internet exploded last week when apparent photos (and video! There was video!) popped up online which seemed to show Taylor Swift actually making out with BFF and Victoria’s Secret model Karlie Kloss while at The 1975′s concert. (Keep in mind, she’s been linked to the guy in The 1975, too.) Well, Taylor is putting all the rumours to rest and letting y’all know that she isn’t dating Karlie and would very much like if you’d stop linking her to every human being with two legs, pls and thx.


Sigh. I suppose it was too much to hope for, anyway. So long as she’s happy! You go, TaySwift.

Taylor Swift is single so that no one gets hurt

taylor swift billboard

Hot on the heels of new rumours about her alleged dalliances with man and woman alike, Taylor Swift‘s cover story for Billboard has been released, in which she insists she’s staying single because that way, no one’s getting hurt. Of course, this is a pretty callous way to live and also a pretty lonely one, and no doubt she’ll change her tune when she next falls in love, but for now, this is how she feels:

Billy Joel recently said that one reason he stopped writing songs was because people started reading too much of his personal life into his lyrics. Has the way everyone plays connect the dots with your songs become a hindrance to your writing?

I’ve been dealing with it for so many years now that I expect the media to do it, I expect fans to do it. Human curiosity is never to be underestimated. But I don’t have anyone whose feelings are on the line except for me. If I was in love with someone right now, I don’t know how I would handle everyone else weighing in on our stories, because when you’re in a relationship there are a lot of secrets and a lot of sacred moments that you don’t want to divulge. I, however, am 24, perfectly happy being alone, and one of the reasons I’m perfectly happy being alone is that no one gets hurt this way.

Huh. Well, if that’s what you want, Taylor. But at least you’ve got lots of famous friends around you. How did you get to know all of these women, if you don’t mind sharing?

You have assembled this salon of really famous women around you — Lorde and Lena and Karlie. How did you build this posse?

Every one of my friendships has a unique and odd beginning. I was watching Girls and I thought, “How mind-blowing is it that this girl is writing, directing and acting in this incredibly profound, raw, authentic view of being a woman in your mid-20s?” So I went to Lena’s Twitter and she was following me. I saw her quoting my lyrics. At first I was afraid, because I thought she was being ironic or making fun of me. Then I looked down further and she’s talking about my music all the time. So I followed her, and immediately got a direct message back saying, “When can we hang out? We need to be best friends.”

With Ella — Lorde — her album came out and I thought it was amazing, so I sent her flowers and congratulated her on a great first week. And I get this text message from one of our mutual friends, [Rookie editor/actress] Tavi Gevinson, and she says, “Lorde is freaking out because she said some stuff about you in an interview and she feels so terrible.” She essentially had said that I’m too perfect or something like that — something that did not even mildly offend me, that I thought was cute. She felt so bad about it, so I said, “It’s no big deal. We should hang out sometime.” We met up in New York and walked to a park near my hotel, and we ate Shake Shack burgers and got attacked by monster squirrels who wanted our food. I could keep going — Karlie and I met at the Victoria’s Secret show …

Did you set out to gather these strong females around you? How much is accidental and how much is it because it was the right moment for that?

I never thought too hard about it, but you’ll notice a lot of celebrity-type people tend to surround themselves with people whose lives revolve around them. You’ll have a posse of these exciting and fashionable cling-ons, and it’s because those celebrities need to be fawned over.

I feel uncomfortable being the No. 1 priority in my friends’ lives — I want to be there to make their lives more fun, if they need to talk, to be there for spontaneous and exciting adventures, but I don’t want friends who don’t have a life outside of me. So whether it’s Karlie, who loves what she does in fashion, or Lily Aldridge or Lena or my [childhood] friend Abigail, whose job is making sure that veterans get their compensation checks, the one thing they all have in common is that they love what they do. They have me in their life because they want me in their life, not because they gain from it.

I love this last part in particular – she’s so spot on. You really DO see celebrities with “friends” that will kiss their asses 24/7 (because literally they have nothing else to offer – and I know a few people who are in that very position) so it’s really good to hear that acknowledged by someone with the awareness to recognize it despite the fact that she could be in that position herself.

The whole interview is worth reading, particularly if you’re a Tay Swift fan (and even if you’re not) – click over to the source to check it out, if that’s your thing.

Is Taylor Swift back with Harry Styles, or is she actually with Karlie Kloss?

taylor swift

The Internet’s collective head vaguely exploded on Thursday because two “bombshells” (i.e. misleading photos) hit the web and now everyone wants to know the answer to a very important question: WHO IS TAYLOR SWIFT BANGING? There are two possible routes we can go here. Let’s explore them both.

Theory 1: Taylor is back with Harry Styles

This picture is from the other night and basically everyone is going nuts because LOOK AT HIS ARM AROUND HER WAIST AND LOOK HOW SHE’S LEANING INTO HIM AND WE ALL KNOW EVERY SONG ON 1989 IS ABOUT HIM ANYWAY SO ARE THEY DOING IT OR WHAT???

Ahem. I mean, you know. Look, Taylor Swift and Harry Styles are NEVER going to work long term. He’s a playboy (and also rumoured to be gay/in a long-term relationship with his One Direction bandmate Liam, in a coupling known as “Larry” online – seriously, fans are HARDCORE about this shit) and is with someone different every week. Taylor is the “good girl” and wants stability and cute kittens and the simple but glamourous life. They don’t work in any sense… but maybe that’s why they do. Opposite attract, as they say, and maybe they just can’t stay away from each other whenever they meet up. Or maybe it’s just a picture.

But this picture is complicated, because then we have this, also from this week…

Theory 2: Taylor is having a relationship with BFF Karlie Kloss

The picture is blurry, sure, but it seems as though BFFs Taylor and model Karlie Kloss are… a little more than friends. Another bystander claimed they were just “talking”, but that does look pretty intimate… though perhaps that’s just wishful thinking. The issue that makes it hard to determine is that apparently young girls go on with each other like this – holding hands, cuddling, basically a bunch of relationship shit that stops just short of actually having sex. Are they making out? Are they together? If so, how does Karlie feel about Taylor hanging all over Harry in the above photo? Or do they have an open relationship and she’s in on it?

Here’s a zoom of the kissing if you’re interested:

Never cross Taylor Swift or you’ll be sorry

Taylor Swift has been performing for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show for a couple of years now and while some models didn’t think she was really right for the job since she’s isn’t conventionally sexy, she’s still there and giving a big f-you to anyone who doesn’t like her.

In fact, according to some reports, Taylor got back at her greatest detractor, model Jessica Hart, who said publicly that Taylor “didn’t fit” in with the Victoria’s Secret crowd, but “bless her heart”, anyway. Taylor apparently got Hart fired from this year’s Fashion Show in the ultimate act of revenge.

From The New York Daily News:

“It’s not been announced that Jessica is not walking, but it was a direct request from Taylor that this be the case if she were to go,” one well-placed Victoria’s Secret insider tells Confidenti@l. “No one can know that Taylor requested Ms. Hart not be in the show. They want to keep that under wraps, but that’s the facts.”

Our source says that behind closed doors the singer gave Hart a Swift kick in her perfectly sculpted butt. Taylor had her team remove the Australian stunner from the spectacular show during talks that again landed Swift the coveted gig at the event.

Huh. Victoria’s Secret have denied this, of course, and said that Hart is still working with them and did a campaign with them a few months back. Go figure. I don’t think this is true at all, of course, but it is a juicy little story, in any case. LOL to Taylor a) being so vengeful and b) so powerful. Riiiiight.

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

taylor swift asos

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”:
