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.

Clearly, Taylor Swift and Apple Music are on better terms these days. If you recall, the “Out of the Woods” singer penned an open letter criticizing the music streaming service for not paying artists enough. Given her clout, Apple amended their policy within hours. Fast forward months later and the 26-year-old singer is now the company’s newest spokesperson.

Taylor, clad in fitness gear (is it Beyonce’s Ivy Park by any chance?), hops on the treadmill to work on her fitness. After sifting through all the options, she selects Drake and Future’s “Jumpman” to run to. Unfortunately, after a few verses things don’t end very well. Girlfriend falls, and falls hard.

Check out the cute advert below which was, as she tweeted, “Based on true events. #TAYLORvsTREADMILL.”

Style, attitude and confidence is what Victoria’s Secret looks for when determining their annual round-up of all things sexy. At least, that’s what they say according to their website.

Earning this year’s Sexiest Actress honor is Kerry Washington. The Scandal actress takes the torch from last year’s winner Rachel McAdams. Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez snags the Forever Sexy crown from Rihanna who earned the title last year.

Before we get to the alleged shade, here’s the backstory.

Last week, Kesha was delivered a devastating blow when the New York Supreme Court denied her motion to be released from her Sony recording contract with producer Dr. Luke, whom she alleges sexually and verbally abused her over the years.

When news broke out, the “Tik Tok” singer received tons of love from her fans and fellow female musicians. Celebs like Lady Gaga, Sara Bareilles, Ariana Grande, Kelly Clarkson and Lorde to name a few spoke out supporting Kesha. #FreeKesha became a trending topic on Twitter.

Over the weekend, Demi Lovato got in on the action. The 23-year-old not only expressed her love for Kesha but threw shade at “so-called feminists.” When Kesha’s mom revealed Taylor Swift donated $250,000 to Kesha’s legal case, Lovato sent a tweet that many felt was directed at Swift. After being accused there was a rivalry with Tay, once again Demi took to social media to clarify her comments. Read all the posts below.

2016-grammy-performances

As with every year, the Grammys can be a long-drawn out affair. Luckily, there are usually a handful of performances that make the marathon telecast bearable. The 58th annual Grammys were no different.

Arguably, the highlight and the one most people were looking forward to was Lady Gaga’s tribute to David Bowie. Mother Monster certainly didn’t disappoint. From head to toe and from the red carpet to the stage, she embodied the late great singer. She performed several of Bowie’s hits including “Fame,” “Rebel Rebel,” “Under Pressure” and “Suffragette City” to name a few. Though she did them all fantastically, Adam Lambert’s cover of “Let’s Dance,” IMHO, is better. Sorry Monsters :(

Adele was surprisingly a bit off her game with her performance. In her defense, it was primarily due to technical glitches that made her sound pitchy and out of tune at times. “The piano mics fell on to the piano strings, that’s what the guitar sound was. It made it sound out of tune. Shit happens. X,:” she tweeted after her performance.

If I had to pick the worst, I hate to say it was Pitbull’s show-closing performance. It pains me to say that because he’s my guilty pleasure, but Sofia Vergara’s special appearance had me cringing. I honestly couldn’t watch and was kinda embarrassed for her.

Watch all the performances below and find out my five favorites. Be sure to weigh in on who you think stole the show and who stank.
