Unless you’ve been off the grid for the past 24 hours, you’ve no doubt heard that the feud between Kanye West and Taylor Swift went nuclear. And that’s putting it mildly.

The entire brouhaha started when Kim Kardashian uploaded a series of videos to Snapchat, seemingly proving Swift was aware of the controversial “Famous” lyrics before the track surfaced online.

Naturally, the fallout from this has been huge, since the “Blank Space” singer has previously stated publicly she wasn’t aware of the song lyrics. Taylor took to Instagram to share her thoughts. “That moment when Kanye West secretly records your phone call, then Kim posts it on the Internet,” she wrote before talking further about ‘character assassination.’

With the leak, there is speculation Taylor could take Kanye to court over this. If Taylor truly didn’t know she was being recorded, it would violate California’s “two-party consent” law which makes it a felony to record or eavesdrop on any confidential communication — namely, a phone call — without the consent of all those involved.

According to People, a source claims Taylor knew about the video and threatened Kanye back in February with criminal prosecution for recording their conversation without her knowledge, and demanded he destroy any video. It’ll be interesting to see how all this plays out in the media in the coming weeks and on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Check out all the video clips below and Taylor’s Instagram statement.

If you haven’t heard, Taylor Swift had a hand in writing Calvin Harris’ latest smash hit featuring Rihanna. After TMZ speculated Swift’s involvement with “This Is What You Came For,” the “Black Space” singer’s team confirmed she used the pen name of Nils Sjöberg in the songwriting credits.

Based on a series of tweets, it’s clear Harris isn’t happy that all this surfaced. The Scottish DJ took to Twitter to share his side of the story. Read all the juicy details below. Let’s just say, there is no love lost on Calvin’s end.

Taylor Swift Surprises Fan At His Wedding

How do you get over a breakup? If you’re Taylor Swift, you attend a fan’s wedding. Just days after splitting with her ex, Calvin Harris, the 26-year-old superstar surprised Max Singer and his new wife, Kenya Smith, at their nuptials. She even performed a song and made them an adorable gift.

According to People, Max’s sister Ali had been coordinating the surprise with Taylor over the last few months.

“Back in April, Ali reached out to the “Shake It Off” singer, 26, about the death of her and Max’s mother in a touching letter, telling Swift how her brother had wed his wife in the hospital so their mom wouldn’t miss out on one of the biggest days of her son’s life.” – People

At the wedding, Swift performed an acoustic version of her hit “Blank Space.” Why that particular song? Max and his late mother danced their mother-and-son dance to the smash hit before she passed away. Watch Taylor’s performance below.

If you’ve ever watched an awards show with Taylor Swift sitting front row, you’ve already seen the 26-year-old dance like no one is watching. Girlfriend moves to the beat, or should I say off beat, to her own drum. She certainly has some unique moves.

For her latest clip for Apple Music, Swift rocks out to The Darkness’ 2003 hit, “I Believe In A Thing Called Love.” “I love a quiet night at home,” Taylor reveals before whipping her blond hair all over her stand-in apartment.

This is Swift’s third ad for the company. She previously rapped to Drake and Future’s “Jumpman” and belted out Jimmy Eat World’s “The Middle” in previous clips. I’m curious to know how many more we can expect. Fingers crossed, the future ones are more in the vein of her epic treadmill fall in the first one. That was everything. Check out her new one below.

Prior to watching this clip, I had no idea I had a few things in common with Taylor Swift. She’s double-jointed in the elbows like me, loves Friends, Love Actually and chicken tenders, can count to ten in German and had an olive tree planted for her by her boyfriend. We’re like the same person but without the fat bank account 😉

Vogue’s 73 Questions series is one of my favorites. The randomness of all the questions makes for a riveting watch. Plus, how many other publications do you know can show exactly how funny Victoria ‘Posh Spice’ Beckham is. If you haven’t watched her ’73 Questions’ clip, it’s a must-watch.

Learn some random fun facts about the “Blank Space” singer below as she gives you a tour of her Beverly Hills Home.

There isn’t an epic treadmill fall included in this latest Apple Music ad, but it’s still an entertaining watch. Also missing this time around are Taylor Swift’s rapping skills. Instead, she swaps out Drake and Future’s “Jumpman” for a little emo action.

Set in a gigantic bathroom, the 26-year-old goes through a playlist, looking for the perfect song to get ready to. She decides on a track which she loved listening to during middle school. Watch her lip sync and rock out below to “The Middle” by Jimmy Eat World. It’s pretty much what you see at any awards show with Swift sitting in the front row. Girl loves to dance. 💃

I’m still beyond curious to learn how much Apple shelled out to Swift to appear in their ads. After all, it wasn’t long ago when these two weren’t on the best terms after Swift penned an open letter criticizing the music streaming service for not paying artists enough.

Before she says goodbye completely to her 1989 era, Taylor Swift is sneaking in one last single. “New Romantics” is the seventh and hopefully final single release from 1989. I want some new music, God dang it 😉

The accompanying music video is, as she calls it, a love letter to her fans. It features never before seen, behind-the-scenes and live footage from The 1989 Tour World Tour. Pretty much, it is an extension of her concert tour film released on iTunes.

Speaking of Apple, the entire music video can only be seen exclusively on Apple Music. Check out a preview below.

taylor-swift-bmi-award

When you’re as big as Taylor Swift, you not only receive awards, but you get one named after you. The BMI (Broadcast Music Inc) announced it will give away a new award named after the 26-year-old singer at the 64th Annual BMI Pop Awards next month.

“Taylor Swift has transformed pop culture through her songs, artistry and indomitable spirit,” said BMI Vice President of Writer/Public Relations Barbara Cane. “She has had a profound impact, not only musically, but also through her personal conviction and commitment to create a standard that values and respects music for everyone. We felt it appropriate to award Taylor with an honor that is as unique and special as she is.”

This isn’t the first time, the organization has presented an award in someone’s name. They first did it in 1990 with the Michael Jackson Award which went to none other than the King of Pop himself.

Do you think Swift has done enough to warrant an award in her name? Why or why not? Share your thoughts below.
