For the good folks of Rhode Island, you can always tell it’s the Fourth of July by illegal fireworks, the crunch of Narragansett beer cans against doofy bros’ foreheads, and the steady stream of models pouting their way up the hill to Taylor Swift’s waterfront mansion for her annual Taymerica party. But for the SECOND year in a row, Taylor has shat on the soul of America by ditching the annual Squad Fourth of July Spectacular. Instead, she just flopped around on a beach in the Caribbean with that British boy she’s been dating. Continue reading
Trent Reznor has some words to say about the apolitical media stars of today. Trent, who is in the process of releasing Bad Witch (the final in a trilogy of politically-charged albums), went in with the New York Times (via THR) when talking about how his band is saving the world through loud, banging music, and others are simply fucking around. Trent said this about Donald Trump:
“What Donald Trump is doing is concerning and infuriating… the disregard for decency and truth and civility is what’s really disheartening.”
In the U.S., we’re legally threatened to think that Taylor Swift perpetually smells like sunshine and dandelions, but the U.K. only has that kind of mindset about the original Sugababes trio. If there’s one thing that makes the British stiff upper lip curl, it’s a stanky Yankee pop star. Taylor performed at the BBC’s Biggest Weekend concert in Swansea over the weekend, and after she finished her set, the BBC’s Greg James let her know she needed to loofah away the grime and Niagara Falls of sweat falling from her hair before he’d get any closer. Naturally, her fans are now demanding that Greg get fired and/or sign a blood oath of allegiance to never question their queen’s hygiene ever again. Continue reading
Y’all, I’m so jaded with these awards shows. Most times I forget they’re even on, and the only reason I watched the Billboard Music Awards last night was so I could see Janet Jackson dip herself in gold and show everyone how a baby and millions of dollars will make you dance like your income tax check just arrived. But before that happened Demi Lovato, dressed in an outfit from the Matrix Intimates collection, meowed like a cat dying in hot grease next to Christina Aguilera while performing their duet “Fall In Line”. The video of that is after the cut.
The viewers at home must have taken heed to those words because in true “we have no lives” fashion the internet chose Demi as its target when many viewers accused her of throwing shade from the audience, especially once aging Homecoming Queen Taylor Swift hit the stage.
The Billboard Music Awards were last night and if the red carpet is any indication, it lived up to it’s name because most stars looked as bored as can be. With very few exceptions, most of the night’s looks were uninspired and devoid of whimsy. Nick Jonas (above) looks like he just showed up for his shift at Applebees and still needs to go get his flair from his locker and take a quick shot at the bar before getting started. He’ll be with you in a minute, ok?
Either because she realized the grudge game was blowing up in her face, or maybe she just had a great afternoon with her cats and was feeling selfless, but Taylor Swift took one look at the olive branch Katy Perry sent her on the opening night of her tour and happily accepted it. No, really.
