Forbes has released yet another list that will inevitably make you want to send a sympathy card to your bank account. This time Forbes has compiled a list of the world’s highest-paid women in music for 2017. Beyonce is already the kind of wealthy that has me scratching my head and wondering if she uses regular people toilet paper, or if one of her minions cuts up white cashmere sweaters into little squares for her each morning. She’s also insanely successful. And so, unsurprisingly, she pulled in some serious Beyonce-levels of money this year.
I heard you! I heard you, the one in the back who hissed “who cares?” Well, someone obviously does! She sold 700,000 copies of her new record “Reputation” in the U.S. on the first day of its release, according to Billboard. If this sales pace keeps up, she will hit a million in sales in the first week alone. And furthermore, industry sources say that she’s probably going to have the largest sales week of her carefully coordinated career. No matter how irritating some of us find her (you can put your hands down), Swifty can sell. Continue reading
Of all the songs on Taylor Swift’s latest album Reputation, which dropped last night, it was my understanding that “Look What You Made Me Do” was the “I HATE KANYE” song. How naive I was. People says that on her album is a song called “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things” and it’s another diss track about Kanye West. Thank goodness Taylor has more than one song about Kanye, otherwise we just wouldn’t know how she felt about him.
Sorry, Taylor Swift’s cat, but it sounds like there’s a chance you’ll no longer be the number-one benefactor of her will. Don’t tell me that’s not already the case; Taylor Swift totally strikes me as the type of person to leave millions to her cats.
A source tells People that Taylor Swift is very serious about her current boyfriend Joe Alwyn. More serious than giving him her cookies or writing songs about him. Taylor’s friends think that Joe could be “the one.” Normally “the one” in Taylor’s world means the one she gushes over for 6-to-9 months before the contract ends and she calls him a loser in a series of songs. But this time it actually means the one.
“It’s a great relationship that everyone hopes will last. Joe could definitely be the one. Their relationship is very different from Taylor’s past ones. They much prefer having dinner parties at home with friends than going out. Just like Taylor, Joe is a homebody. He loves being an actor but doesn’t like the celebrity part of it.”
We probably shouldn’t expect to hear wedding bells just yet. Joe still has to pass Taylor’s official commitment test: displaying major levels of corniness on Instagram. Then, and only then, can she consider him in the running for her husband. But I’m sure that hasn’t stopped Taylor from dreamily writing wedding vows in her diary. “I, Taylor Swift, take this conventionally handsome blonde guy, to be Mr. Taylor Swift, to help smite my enemies, for richer or richer, ’til a breakup album does us part?”
We’re just two days away from the day Taylor Swift and her legion of fans have been waiting with baited snake breath for: the release of her sixth studio album, Reputation. Except there’s already album drama. Drama? With Taylor? Shocking.
The only person who likes Taylor Swift more than Taylor Swift is her lawyers; girl provides them with a lot of work. Taylor put her lawyers to work recently on a writer who wrote some things Taylor didn’t like regarding her popularity in the white supremacy community. Thanks to a little thing called free speech, that fight isn’t going so well for Taylor.
