Taylor Swift in green Michael Kors at the AMAs: cute or overrated?

wenn21956256

It’s gotten to the point where I actually enjoy all of the cutaways to Taylor Swift in the audience during any given music awards show. Swifty is always seated front and center, usually surrounded by notable celebrity friends, and Swifty actually “performs” as Greek chorus for much of the night. At last night’s AMAs, Swifty was dancing, singing along, and at one point crying (at the Selena Gomez performance). Swifty was there with her BFF Karlie Kloss, but at various times, Selena, Lorde and others were invited in the little Swifty group. No boys allowed!

Swifty didn’t walk the AMA red carpet, probably because she did “Blank Space” as the first performance of the night. As soon as her performance was done, she changed into this green Michael Kors gown, which… eh. I like her in green. I think this would have been more interesting as a column dress rather than with the netting at the midsection.

Here’s the video of her performance – is it just me or was the sound quality really crappy for most of the performances? And I didn’t think this was the strongest performance for the start of the show.

Personally, I thought Lorde gave one of the best performances of the night – she performed “Yellow Flicker Beat.” Here you go:

Taylor Swift, One Direction & Iggy Azalea 2014 American Music Awards Complete Winners List

2014 American Music Awards - Press RoomWith celebrity awards shows, so much attention is paid to the red carpet that it’s almost easy to forget that people actually win awards- LOL. Iggy Azalea won two big awards (Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Album as well as Favorite Artist Rap/Hip-Hop) at the 2014 American Music Awards and gave a great acceptance speech, thanking rapper T.I. as well as name-checking Eminem, who threw some shade at her last week in the lyrics to a rap. Although Iggy’s been nominated before, this was the first time she’s taken home the award. One Direction won big with three awards.Taylor Swift, meanwhile, took home the Dick Clark Award for Excellence. Take a look at the complete winners’ list after the break!

It means so much that I can stand here against Eminem and Drake and come out with this.”

Awww (and OUCH to Eminem, but after his rape lyrics, he pretty much had it coming)… I bet it was a huge night for her! Here’s the complete list of winners. Congratulations to everyone.

Taylor Swift Hitting The Shops In LA

Taylor Swift Has A Busy Day In West Hollywood‘1989’ singer Taylor Swift is making the most of her time on the west coast. Here she is heading to Fred Segal to do some shopping. Taylor seems to be spending most of her time on the east coast lately, but she’s in town for the American Music Awards, which are tomorrow night. RELATED: So why did Taylor Swift give up on men?

Wonder if she had to pick up something for the awards show? I’m guessing her entire outfit is already taken care of. Perhaps she’s getting a jump on holiday shopping, in which case I envy her planning skills.

Taylor is performing at the AMAs. She’s set to sing her new song ‘Blank Spaces.’ I’m sure she’ll take home an award or two. Her transition to being a pop star is complete, I say.

Taylor Swift gets irritated by ‘bitter’ celebrities complaining about their lives

swifty lucky

I barely recognized Taylor Swift without her signature red lips. Even when she doesn’t do fire-engine red lipstick, she usually goes for darker, bolder lips, so she really does look different in this Lucky Magazine photoshoot. Washed out… but not bad. Anyway, Taylor is still promoting her new album and that apparently involves A) hats and B) incessant talk about how happy she is to be single. I believe she’s happy (-ish) to be single right now, but I think this is just a phase where she talks about boys by talking about the lack of boys in her life. Some highlights from the Lucky piece:

No more fairytale romances: “Wow, I really used to think that happily ever after was a thing. Not in those simple terms…I think that no matter what you find in terms of happiness and compatibility, there’s always going to be a struggle attached to it. I used to believe that you find the one and that’s it: Nothing’s difficult after that. But then again, I know nothing now. I know legitimately nothing about lasting relationship experiences because I don’t have them.”

She’s obsessed with coffee: “Coffee’s a big part of my life. Skinny caramel lattes are a daily thing that I get excited about and I never stop being excited about. So if I could just find one person who I felt that way about—the way I feel about coffee—then I think I’d be in a content relationship.”

Her girlfriends: “A lot of my life has to be protected, just because of the circumstances I’m under. But with my friends there’s absolutely nothing held back. Every detail of every story is told. There’s no editing.”

Fame and privacy: “I wanted to make music. I didn’t know that came with this expectation that your whole life is owned by the general public and everything you do is dissected, scrutinized and questioned. Because [people with] a sunny outlook are a lot easier to deal with, be around, befriend and handle than people who are bitter about it. People who are, like, complaining about the life of being a celebrity. It’s a little irritating.”

The mystery surrounding her belly button: “I don’t like showing my belly button. When you start showing your belly button then you’re really committing to the midriff thing. I only partially commit to the midriff thing—you’re only seeing lower rib cage. I don’t want people to know if I have one or not. I want that to be a mystery. As far as anyone knows based on my public appearances, they haven’t seen evidence of a belly button. It could be pierced. They have no idea. If I’m going to get some sort of massive tattoo, it’s going to be right next to my belly button because no one’s ever going to see that.”

[From E! News and Lucky]

On the face of it, I see nothing wrong with anything she’s saying now. Swifty is in-process at the moment. She’s still figuring out her life, maturing into womanhood and the whole process is amplified because she’s such a celebrity and because she’s largely working out her life drama in public, in interviews. I’ll kind of admit it – I find this part of Swifty charming. I’m reminded of her youth and how she’s reached that weird moment in her 20s when she realizes that she was full of sh-t and didn’t know anything just five years previous.

Also – Swifty is going to perform “Blank Space” tonight at the AMAs. She’s also receiving The Dick Clark Award for Excellence. Diana Ross will present the award to her!!! That’s crazy to me. But I’m looking forward to seeing what Swifty wears.

Brandi Glanville: Trying to Find a Boyfriend, Going Too Far With Botox, Source Claims

Brandi Glanville doesn’t do anything halfway, so perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that when she’s on the market, she attacks the singles scene like the hungry cougar that she is.

Until recently, Brandi was dating some 23-year-old and creepily compared the relationship to “having a third child.”

Not surprisingly, the dude dumped Brandi (probably after she licked her thumb to wipe some schmutz off his face), and she’s once again single and desperate to mingle.

Brandi Glanville: Botox Gone Wrong?

But if you think Ms. Glanville is going after guys her own age, then you don’t know Brandi. This woman is allergic to men over 40…but that’s not the reason her face is all puffed up:

Sources say Brandi has been going overboard with her Botox treatments lately, and she’s not pleased with the results.

“Brandi is embarrassed by how it turned out,” says one insider. “She’s trying to find a boyfriend and wants to look young, but she knows she went too far.”

And how is Brandi coping with the humiliation of a disfigurement that’s unnoticeable to anyone besides herself? By guzzling booze, of course!

“Brandi’s girlfriends took her out to cheer her up,” says the source. “Nothing like a drunken night off for Brandi to shake it off!”

Ugh, she probably sang the Taylor Swift song too. Homegirl is 42 going on 14.

Watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online to see Brandi desperately cling to her youth.

Brandi Glanville


Brandi’s back, and boozy as ever. Spoiler alert: At some point this season, she smacks Lisa Vanderpump. You’d HAVE to be drunk to assault such a classy lady!

Iggy Azalea-Eminem Feud Heats Up Following "Old Man" Diss on Twitter!

Iggy Azalea is no stranger to feuds.

The Iggy-Snoop Dogg beef made headlines last month, with the Aussie raptress eventually “winning” by forcing an apology from the Doggfather.

Prior to that, Iggy feuded with Nicki Minaj, and while the First Ladies of Hip Hop have occasionally shown love to one another in public, sources say that situation is unlikely to ever be resolved.

Considering how man beefs she’s been involved with, you may think that Iggy intentionally seeks out drama, when in reality, she seems to simply be a favorite target for A-list emcees.

  • It's Iggy Azalea!
  • Eminem Pic

Her latest public throwdown is no different, as Iggy finds herself in the position of responding to some shocking comments from a hip hop icon:

Eminem seems to be using controversy to promote his new mixtape, Shady XV. Last week, Em rapped about punching Lana Del Rey during a freestyle, and this week he’s set his sights on Iggy-Ig.

A recently released track on Shady XV contains the following lyrics:

“So what’s it gonna be? / Put that sh-t away, Iggy / You gonna blow a rape whistle on me?”

Eminem’s supporters have pointed out that he’s made a career out of targeting potentially offensive threats and insults toward other artists through his Slim Shady persona.

Many feel, however, that this time Em has simply gone too far, and his critics have pointed out that the sort of lyrics that may have gone unnoticed in 1999 are simply not acceptable in 2014 – particularly now that Mr. Mathers is 42 and has a daughter in college.

Iggy brought up the topic of Em’s age (and the fact that he remains an influential Rap God to many young men) when she responded to his controversial verse on Twitter:

“I’m bored of old men threatening young women as entertainment trend,” Iggy tweeted. “It’s especially awkward because my 14 year old brother is the biggest Eminem fan and now the artist he admired says he wants to rape me. Nice!”

Of course, the grand hip hop tradition requires that artists settle their differences in song form, and the fact that I-G-G-Y has never written a response track (despite her many feuds) is seen by many as further evidence that Iggy doesn’t write her own rhymes.

But that’s a conversation for another time…

Katy Perry vs. Taylor Swift


Taylor Swift wrote a song titled “Bad Blood” about an enemy in the music business. We’re pretty sure the subject was Katy Perry.

Taylor Swift: "Bragging" That She’s Friends With Harry Styles Again, Source Says

You may not have known this, but Taylor Swift has been involved in a lot of high-profile relationships over the years.

Shocking, right? Anyway, one of Swift’s most recent and memorable breakups was with One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles.

Swift and Styleonly dated for about two months, which is a shame, because their hyphenated married names would’ve been awesome.

  • Taylor Swift is Evil
  • Harry Styles at American Music Awards

Despite the brief nature of their relationship, however, the spilt seems to have had a serious impact on Taylor.  

Swift spoke about her breakup with Styles during a party she hosted for fans recently, and she’s written several songs on the subject (her coping method of choice).

But despite the public airing of grievances, Styles and Swift have reportedly patched things up and are quickly becoming unlikely besties.

It all started during a recent One Direction press event, at which the topic of Taylor writing “Out of the Woods” about Harry came up. 

“We write from personal experience,” Harry said. “So it would be hypocritical to be like, ‘Oh, you can’t write about us.'”

Harry’s defense of Taylor led to rumors that the two are on speaking terms again. Those reports have now been confirmed by a source who spoke with Us Weekly:

“They have become pals,” says the insider. “Taylor has been bragging to her trainer and celeb friends that she and Harry are talking again.”

In sad news for Swift-Style ‘shippers, however, the source confirms that neither party has any interest in reconciliation. Or to put it another way, Taylor and Harry are never, ever, ever getting back together.

Jennifer Lawrence Effie & Haymitch Plan In ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1′ Clip

hunger games mockingjay part 1 clipI can’t believe ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1′ is going to hit theaters in just FOUR more days! Here’s a clip that shows a silent Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) as Haymitch (Woody Harrelson) and Effie (Elizabeth Banks) brainstorm moments when Katniss Everdeen touched them. RELATED: ‘The Hunger Games’ cast spoofs Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ on SNL.

If you’ve read the book, then you know Katniss isn’t in the greatest “head space” at this point. She’s a reluctant heroine ;). In this clip it looks like they’re trying to make the Mockingjay as endearing as possible.

I have to admit, the reviews aren’t too good for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.’ They all highlight something I was fearful of when I heard they were splitting the book ‘Mockingjay’ into two books: not much happens in Part 1. I’m trying not to let these reviews get me down, even if it’s exactly what I feared. How about you: do you plan to go see ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1’?

Frozen-Breaking Bad Mash-Up Asks the Question: Do You Want to Build a Meth Lab?

Disney’s animated smash Frozen has inspired scores of amazing mash-ups in the past.

We’ve already enjoyed the random hilarity of Frozen combined with Fifty Shades of Grey and the disturbing awesomeness of Queen Elsa joining the cast of Game of Thrones, but the latest pairing of snowmen and psychopaths might be the most bleakly brilliant yet.

An ingenious team of animators has re-imagined one of Frozen’s most memorable tunes as an ode to a different kind of ice, and naturally they cast everyone’s favorite meth kingpin in the role of Anna:

Never before have we felt so much sympathy for Heisenberg’s lonely plight. The poor guy just wants his buddy to help him churn out some primo product!

The most impressive thing about this clip (aside from the spot-on Aaron Paul impression) might be the way it finds unexpected laughs in some of Breaking Bad’s darkest scenes and most memorable deaths.

So yeah, spoiler alert if you haven’t yet experienced the adventures of Walt and Jesse in their entirety yet. (But seriously, if not, what are you waiting for?!)

Don’t be surprised if this catchy melody gets stuck in your head all over again, but be warned that belting out the lyrics could earn you a visit from the DEA.

Oh, and speaking of the combination of Frozen and inappropriately adult content, remember Queen Elsa look-alike Anna Faith Carlson? Yeah, she’s still super hot:
