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.

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.

Heading into the 58th annual Grammy Awards, Kendrick Lamar led the pack with a whopping 11 nominations. Taylor Swift and The Weeknd were close behind with 7 nods apiece. Each of them walked away with some hardware with Lamar taking the lead again with five statues.

With regards to the big categories, the Grammys spread the love. Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ ubiquitous hit, “Uptown Funk” won Record of the Year while Album of the Year and Song of the Year went to Swift and Ed Sheeran respectively. It’s worth nothing, Taylor is the first woman to win Album of the Year twice.

The Best New Artist statue went to Meghan Trainor. Didn’t she already win a Grammy last year? How is she still a ‘new artist?’ It’s also worth mentioning, Justin Bieber walked away with his first Grammy statue for his “Where Are U Now?” collaboration with Diplo and Skrillex.

For the most part, the acceptance speeches weren’t anything too memorable with exception to Taylor. Even though her rep previously issued a statement regarding Kanye West’s controversial lyrics, Swift has kept mum… until now.

“As the first woman to win album of the year twice, I want to say to all the young women out there, there are going to be people along the way who will try to undermine your success or who will try to take credit for your accomplishments or your fame.” – Swift

Though she doesn’t specifically mention West’s name or “Famous,” it’s pretty clear her speech was a less-than-veiled response to the rapper. Watch her speech in full below, along with the complete winners list for the 2016 Grammys.

This release is a bit random. Why now? It’s been over a month since Taylor Swift first released her “Out Of The Woods” music video on New Year’s Eve. I suppose timing doesn’t really matter to hardcore Swifties. They’ll eat up anything she’s serving. It’s already amassed massive views.

Swift and director Joseph Kahn reveal tidbits about their most recent collaboration. Though shot on location in New Zealand, there’s plenty of CGI used to create some of the stunning visuals. With that being said, some old fashioned movie-making tricks were used as well. For instance, the blue dress she’s wearing was dipped in wax to make it appear frozen. Learn more secrets in the behind-the-scenes clip below.

Just like her other recent clips, Taylor Swift chose a huge event to debut her latest visual. The 26-year-old singer unveiled “Out Of The Woods” during Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ with Ryan Seacrest on December 31. Happy belated New Year’s Eve BTW. I think I’ve finally recovered 😉

“Out of the Woods” is the sixth single off Swift’s 1989 album. If this cracks the Top 10 like the others, I fully expect Taylor to release a seventh one. Girl is going to milk the LP until it’s bone dry.

Once again, she teams up with Joseph Kahn for another big budget video with even more special effects. Love the clip, but it’s pretty much “Wildest Dreams” but set in a forest and icy environment. Speaking of which, T-Swizzle channels a little Elsa in her Frozen blue gown in several segments of the clip. Check it out below.

For the fourth straight year, Taylor Swift has topped the Celebs Gone Good list. DoSomething.org compiles an annual list highlighting celebrities who use their fame and wealth for positive change.

Among some of the charitable acts the 26-year-old singer has done this past year include a $50,000 donation to a young girl who had to miss one of her shows to undergo treatment for leukemia. The “Bad Blood” entertainer also donated $50,000 to the Seattle Symphony, $50,000 to help fund arts education in NYC and another $50,000 to her backup dancers baby nephew fighting cancer.

Coming in the runner-up slot was Miley Cyrus. She made the cut for founding the Happy Hippy Foundation– an organization with a mission to rally young people to fight injustice facing homeless youth, LGBTQ youth and other vulnerable populations. Check out the Top 20 most charitable celebrities below.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a certified critical and commercial success. Everywhere you go, you’re reminded the space saga is back and stronger than ever. It’s no wonder why the Associated Press bestowed the film with its Entertainer of the Year award. Voters were asked to consider who had the most influence on entertainment and culture in 2015.

“In a year full of sequels, reboots and returns, none have recaptured the zeitgeist like ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,'” wrote Nick Dutro of The Advertiser-Tribune in Tiffin, Ohio.

The intergalactic flick beat out big names for the title including Taylor Swift, Amy Schumer and Adele. Those three ladies had huge years, but were no match for the 40-year-old franchise. Others in the running for the honor were Jon Stewart, Jennifer Lawrence, Taraji P. Henson, Viola Davis and the Kardashians.

Do you think the AP chose correctly? If not, who do you think deserves the honor the most? Sound off below.


After spending several months on the road promoting her fifth studio album, Taylor Swift wrapped up The 1989 World Tour in Melbourne this past weekend, the day before her 26th birthday. For those who didn’t have a chance to catch the “Blank Space” singer’s show, fear not, it’s coming to Apple Music shortly.

Swift revealed a companion concert film is being released on Sunday, December 20. Directed by Jonas Akerlund, the movie will feature plenty behind-the-scenes clips, concert footage and all those special guests that made an appearance during the tour.

Normally, concert flicks aren’t on the top of my list to check out, especially during this hectic awards season. However, this one definitely piques my interest. I want to see how all those special cameos came about. Check out the preview below.
