Taylor Swift Premieres New Track For Target Commercial

In: Donovan, Music
taylor-swift-target-commercial

For Swifties who want more of their beloved idol, they’ll have to head to Target stores on October 27 to purchase the deluxe edition of 1989. The super-sized offering includes three additional songs and three songwriting voice memos that won’t be available on digital download or other stores. One of those tracks, “Never Go Out of Style,” premiered, naturally, in a new Target commercial.

Normally, we’re used to Taylor Swift bashing her exes on her tracks. Is this catchy new pop track a favorable ode to Harry Styles? T-Swizzle praises an unnamed guy for his impeccable style and slick hair. Sounds an awful lot like the One Direction singer at face value, doesn’t it? Perhaps, once all the lyrics are released, all will be revealed. In the meantime, check out the kinda adorable ad below.

ellen-degeneres-world-series

Forget the coin toss!!! This is how everything should be decided when given two options.

Ellen DeGeneres devised an incredibly scientific method to determine the results of the World Series. She instructed two shirtless guys wearing either a Kansas City Royals or San Francisco Giants cap to entertain the audience. The one returning with the most dollar bills in their pants would signify the eventual winner of the World Series.

Personally, the guy who earned the most cash is the one I would’ve given all my money to. Dude is cute. And side note… is it me or is Ellen’s show turning into a daily PG-rated male revue? Without fail, there’s always a hunky shirtless guy on stage. Not that I’m complaining. Check out her latest eye-grabbing stunt below.

Ricky Martin Rocks A Mustache For Adios Music Video

What’s better than one Ricky Martin? How about five of them? The 42-year-old Latin superstar takes on different personas in his newest video, “Adios.”

Director Ethan Ladder transports Martin to an old school speakeasy for the clip. Ricky swivels his sexy hips while scantily-clad women surround him. Truthfully, it could pass for “Livin’ La Vida Loca” Part 2. Branch out a little creatively, Ricky!!! Since the entire world knows he’s gay, how about replacing the ladies with video hos of the male variety? Right?

Check out Ricky rocking out the mustache in the video below. I have to say, he looks pretty damn fine. A little sinister but that’s how I like em ;)

I’m not sure exactly how substantial his role in Magic Mike XXL is, but Michael Strahan definitely has the goods to headline his own male revue. The 42-year-old talk show host shared a pic hanging out with Channing Tatum on set. Even Tatum is impressed with Strahan’s chiseled abs.

On a recent episode of Live with Kelly & Michael, Strahan talked about his experience filming the highly-anticipated sequel. More importantly, feeling like a piece of meat while standing around practically naked.

“You know what, it’s topless. There are some very little thongs…I was hugged and snugged more than I’ve ever been in that area!,” he says. Listen to the cute story below and check out his amazing washboard abs as well.

2014-most-fascinating-people-list

You can’t keep a good bitch down ;) Although she proclaimed last year’s Most Fascinating People special was the last, Barbara Walters returns to ABC this Winter with a 2014 edition.

While I enjoy the special, I thought last year’s supposed final list was fitting. Walters began the annual telecast years ago with Hillary Rodham Clinton as her ‘Most Fascinating Person.’ Fittingly, Barbara chose the former First Lady as her last. I’m sensing that the legendary 85-year-old journalist’s retirement will echo Cher’s numerous farewell tours ;)

ABC has already released some names who’ve made the 2014 list. Find out who made the cut below.

We’re officially in the home stretch til The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 hits the theaters on November 21. Don’t forget you can purchase your tickets early on October 29?

In a new promo, sponsored by Doritos, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) discovers Peeta Mallark (Josh Hutcherson) is still alive after The Quarter Quell. However, he’s not the same. He’s shown on television spewing Capitol propaganda. Gale (Liam Hemsworth) is quick to point out to Katniss that regardless of any situation, it’s Peeta’s choice to say those words. Someone’s a little jelly ;)

Check out the promo titled ‘Choice‘ below which features some new footage.

Whenever Gwen Stefani enlists Pharrell Williams to produce a track, magic occurs. “Hollaback Girl” and “Wind It Up” are just two great examples. While the No Doubt frontwoman’s comeback single “Baby Don’t Lie” has divided music enthusiasts, “Spark The Fire,” produced by Pharrell, will please many of her longtime fans.

The hip hop-influenced song is very reminiscent of her earlier solo work. “It literally is the song that explains everything that’s going on in my life right now in this surreal way,” Gwen explains about the track. She shared a minute-long snippet on Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS FM show.

In addition to teasing her new track, the 45-year-old singer premiered the music video for “Baby Don’t Lie.” It features Stefani walking through a neon graphic jungle filled with abstract and geometric shapes. Check out the Sophie Muller-directed graphic clip below, along with the preview of “Spark The Fire.”

The fashion industry lost one of its greats on Tuesday. Famed fashion designer Oscar de la Renta passed away at his home in Kent, Connecticut at the age of 82. Numerous celebrities immediately took to social media to express their sadness for losing such a creative genius.

The Dominican-born fashion designer first became famous in the 1960s for dressing Jackie Kennedy. Since then he’s dressed several First Ladies including Hillary Rodham Clinton’s coral swearing-in ensemble in 1997 and first lady Laura Bush’s twinkling beaded inaugural gown in 2005. Hollywood celebrities, Manhattan doyennes and fashionistas also sought out his impeccable designs. Recently, he designed Amal Clooney‘s stunning ivory tulle wedding gown.
