Lyricist, master wit and completely competent Presidential candidate Kanye West once said about his on-again, off-again arch-nemesis, Taylor Swift: “I made that bitch famous”. Well, looks like he’s going above and beyond once again for his “protégé,” because after getting out of Twitter jail, he kept on, kept on, on Twitter and vowed to work with “family friend” Scooter Braun to get Taylor her masters back after they were famously acquired by Braun and Scott Borchetta in their Big Machine Label Group purchase last summer. Why do I have a feeling that Scooter just hit the block button Kanye’s number?
27-year-old Lil Twist was a member of Justin Bieber‘s posse in the early-2010s. Justin recently admitted to
appropriating being inspired by and benefitting from black culture. Well, that may go deeper than we realize. While doing promo for his WeTV series, Growing Up Hip Hop, Lil Twist revealed that while he was rolling with The Biebs, he was used by Justin’s management team to take the fall for drug charges.
A new Taylor Swift album dropped last night, but it’s not filled with new music and it’s not Taylor-approved at all. It came from her newest arch-rivals, Big Machine Records, and Taylor let her fans know that the live album is old shit and is a shameless money grab from Big Machine’s new owner, Scooter Braun, and his investors. And Taylor even name-dropped the Soros family.
Have you ever wondered if you’d have sex with Taylor Swift as a man? Now you can find out, as she dressed up as The Man (specifically, Leonardo DiCaprio as Jordan Belfort in The Wolf of Wall Street) for her video for her song The Man. And for some reason, the Swifties are stunned that she did this and had no idea it was her until the ending “twist” reveals as much. Okay but, if you have two working eyes and even an ounce of deductive reasoning, you can guess that Taylor Swift is The Man within the first thirty-seconds. But then again, you might also think it’s a Botoxed Tom Cruise on stilts.
Taylor Swift did an interview with Variety about her upcoming Netflix documentary, Taylor Swift: Miss Americana. It’s nice that Taylor has a new movie to promote so soon after her last one. What is it that they say? The best way to get over one extremely terrible movie is to get behind one that can’t possibly be worse? Well, Variety wasn’t about to let Taylor side-step the stinky kitty litter clump called Cats. But the good news for Taylor is that she isn’t really bothered by Cats’ status as a massive box office bomb.
When Taylor Swift took the stage at the American Music Awards last month, she only slightly dragged Scooter Braun. And she didn’t even say his name. Well, she fully dragged him and called him out by name at the Billboard’s Women in Music 2019 event yesterday. If the AMAs were a threat to speak to the manager, then the Billboard Women in Music 2019 is waiting outside the store at 6:54am for the doors to open at 7 after looking up the manager’s name the night before.
