I never thought it was possible, but dare I say it. Jessie J’s vibrato sounds more like a goat than Taylor Swift. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m referring to that awesome fan video where Taylor’s wailing is replaced by a goat. It’s EVERYTHING. My friends and I have spent countless hours laughing our heads at it.

Whether Jessie’s cover was intentional or a playful tongue and cheek bit of shade thrown at T. Swizzle, it’s an entertaining watch. Whatever the reason, I’m glad the “Wild” singer chose it as her mandatory cover during her visit at BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge. Check it out below.

During her four sold-out shows at Los Angeles’ Staples Center, Taylor Swift enlisted a few of her famous friends to make appearances. Jennifer Lopez, Ellie Goulding, Sara Bareilles, Tegan & Sara and Cher Lloyd popped up on stage to perform one of their signature hits with the 23-year-old singer.

In a new behind-the-scenes look at her Red concert tour, her duet partners share their thoughts about their experience performing with the “Trouble” singer. Watch the seven-minute long clip below to hear what they say, along with the actual performances.

Can you imagine being a teacher at an all-girl school stuck in a classroom with everyone all wearing the same Taylor Swift perfume? I’m sure this horrifying situation actually does take place? Talk about workers’ compensation. Just thinking about it sends shivers up my spine.

The 23-year-old singer just unveiled the first part (yes more parts are coming) of her latest fragrance, “Taylor by Taylor Swift.” It’s a good thing she indicated it was by her, otherwise some might’ve thought it was from Taylor Lautner, Taylor Kitsch, Taylor Momsem or even Jonathan Taylor Thomas ;) It’s Swift’s third scent for Elizabeth Arden. Guess the other two are huge sellers for the beauty brand.

Check out her Instagram-looking commercial below which features her reading in a bathtub, frolicking with friends, taking Polaroids, and trying on hats while her track “Starlight” plays in the background.

After two years stuck in the runner-up slot, Oprah Winfrey returns to the top of the heap. For the fifth time ever, the 59-year-old mogul tops Forbes annual list of the 100 Most Powerful Celebrities. Unlike most lists from the publication, this list isn’t solely based on earnings and net worth. Rather, a combination of press mentions, social media power and naturally cha-ching is used in their formula. For the first time ever, a marketability score has been added to the mix.

Last year’s top dog, Jennifer Lopez, drops to No. 12. No doubt in part to her leaving American Idol. Even though she received less press mentions and lost that salary, abandoning that sinking ship was a wise career move. Even with J. Lo’s absence, six of the Top 10 spots are occupied by women. Check out the entire Top 100 list below.

Call me a sap, but this has to be the most adorable thing ever. At the very least the cutest clip from Taylor Swift. The 23-year-old country singer just debuted the music video for her duet with Ed Sheeran. “Everything Has Changed” is the latest single lifted from Swift’s 4X platinum-selling fourth studio album, Red.

The concept of the music video is fairly simple, but it’s absolutely engaging. The rom-com-like clip features two kids resembling a mini Taylor and Ed. From eating lunch together in the playground to pretending to text each other on their fake iPhones, every scene is too cute for words. I found myself silently “awwwwwwwing” practically every other second. My favorite scene though is when the girl lays her head on his lap while he reads Nicholas Sparks’ The Notebook. Totes adorbs.

In an M. Night Shyamalan-like twist ending, we find out that Swift and Sheeran are actually the parents of the two inseparable best friends. Watch the video below and try to catch all of Taylor and Ed’s quirks in their mini doppelgangers.

In: Donovan, Music

It’s a long weekend up here in my neck of the woods, ergo the delay of posts today. Sufficed to say, a good time was had by all yesterday and I’m paying the price now. Watching last night’s Billboard Music Awards today was the perfect remedy to bring me back to life. After seeing Taylor Swift walk away with eight awards, I had to share my five takeaways from the event held in Las Vegas. Find out what they are below.

The 2013 Billboard Music Awards air live on Sunday, May 19 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on ABC. The acts competing in all the categories have been revealed. Leading the way with a whopping 11 nominations each is a three way tie between Taylor Swift, fun. and Maroon 5. Right on their tails is Rihanna with 10 nods. Not too far behind are Carly Rae Jepsen and One Direction with nine and eight nominations respectively.

The nominations are based on Billboard’s music charts from February 27, 2012 to February 24, 2013. Winners are determined by taking into account album sales and downloads, track downloads, radio airplay and touring as well as streaming and social interactions on Facebook, Twitter, Vevo, Youtube, Spotify and other popular online destinations for music. This year’s event is hosted by Tracy Morgan. Swift, Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars, Miguel, and Prince are among the scheduled performers announced so far. The latter will be on hand to receive the prestigious Billboard Icon Award. Check out the nominations in the major categories below.

Fifth Harmony Delivers Some Taylor Swift Realness

In: Donovan, Music

I was a little worried no more amazing acoustic YouTube performances were in store for us after each girl picked a song for the group to cover. Thankfully, the girls eased my worries by uploading another kick-ass one. This time, they take on the title track from Taylor Swift’s current album, Red. Fans of Fifth Harmony know this is their second time covering Swift. 5H, then briefly known as 1432, sang “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” while on The X Factor. This cover of “Red” is much better.

As happy as I am to hear Ally, Dinah, Camilla, Normani and Lauren show off their covering prowess, I want to hear some original music from them. Emblem3 already has a new single out (“Chloe“) and Season 2 winner Tate Stevens is streaming his entire debut album over at Amazon. At this rate, 9th place finisher Beatrice Miller who recently signed with Simon Cowell’s Syco Records and Disney’s Hollywood label will probably have new music out before them. Are you getting as impatient as me? Check out 5H’s Swift cover below.
