“Subtle” was redefined yesterday when Taylor Swift burped up the news that she’s releasing new versions of two songs from her album Midnights. TayTay announced that she and Lana Del Rey recorded a new version of their song Snow on the Beach and that she and IT rapper of the moment, Ice Spice, did a remix of her song Karma. Many have stamped the latter collab with the words “DAMAGE CONTROL” since TayTay’s current poo (typo and it stays), Matty Healy, laughed at racist comments about Ice Spice on a podcast. And while some Swifties have once again defended their savior over this, others are adding this damage control jewel to TayTay’s Queen of Performative Acts crown.
Last week, The Sun burped up a rumor that Taylor Swift moved on from Joe Alwyn to The 1975’s frontmess Matty Healy. Now, Taylor getting with a skinny white Brit is barely shrug-worthy news. But turns out that TayTay’s current rebound piece is bad for her brand because he’s a certified edgelord who has pulled anti-Semitic shit, said racist crap, etc… etc… The Swifties have been in denial over this union, but sadly for them, their queen really is getting on Violet Chachki’s long-lost-and-stay-lost racist evil twin. The two had themselves a date night at the completely low-key Casa Cipriani (which is Italian for LOOK AT US) in NYC yesterday. And suddenly, Tom Hiddleston and his I Heart TS tank top are breathing sighs of relief because they’re no longer the most embarrassing part of TayTay’s dating life.
As low-rent and busted as he looks, Shia LaBeouf’s name was on everybody’s lips at the swanky Bel Air hotel recently when two of his ex-girlfriends, FKA Twigs and Margaret Qualley, got into a heated argument over what witnesses say was Margaret not wanting to act as a witness for Twigs in her lawsuit against Shia in which she is accusing him of physical, sexual and psychological domestic abuse, all of which he denies. That alone should have been enough to condemn the property because you can get bed bugs, or worse, just thinking his name, let alone arguing about him “in full view of the other hotel guests.” You want ants? Because that is how you get ants. You’d be better off summoning the Candyman. Page Six reports that Margaret’s fiancé Jack Antonoff even got pulled into the muck when he stepped in to defend her. Yep. Shia is that pernicious.
Big exciting news for fans of actors with famous parents, and guys who look like a Gen Z Seymour from Little Shop of Horrors. There’s a new celebrity couple engagement in town, and a source is telling People magazine that the future union is between 27-year-old Margaret Qualley (aka Andie MacDowell’s kid) and 38-year-old musician Jack Antonoff.
Margaret Qualley’s mom Andie MacDowell must have made her watch Groundhog Day on repeat as a child because she keeps waking up and repeating the same mistake over and over again. First, it was Pete Davidson, then it was Shia LaBeouf, and now, according to Page Six, Margaret is now dating music producer Jack Antonoff, her Once Upon A Time In Hollywood costar Lena Dunham’s ex. I don’t really know much about Jack but the fact that he was with Lena for 5 years makes me wonder if Margaret is colorblind and she thinks all the red flags waving in her peripheral vision are actually beckoning her like “come on, over here, this guy is COOL!”
Shia LaBeouf is currently in a treatment center to deal with aaaaaaaaall that is Shia LaBeouf, while his lawyers are doing the heaviest of lifting by claiming that each and every one of the abuse allegations made by his ex-girlfriend, FKA Twigs, is a lie. Shia might be wondering what his career could look like after he leaves treatment, which coincidentally will probably depend very heavily on who has read FKA Twigs’ allegations. And I’m sure he’s counting on some of the friends he made pre-treatment to still answer the phone when he gets out. Like maybe Margaret Qualley will be available for a sequel to their naked performance art music video thing. But if Margaret’s recent Instagram activity is any indication of her future availability, then Shia might want to skip over her number when starts making those cold calls.
