40 years ago, People tapped Mia Farrow to grace its very first issue. With Farrow’s film, The Great Gatsby, co-starring Robert Redford and Sam Waterston on the way, it was only natural Farrow pose as Daisy Buchanan on the cover. To celebrate its 40th anniversary, the publication enlisted Taylor Swift to echo Farrow’s iconic Great Gatsby look which includes chomping on a string of pearls.

Check out the original cover below and weigh in if Swift does Farrow proud. I’ve also added a couple of quotes from the accompanying interview.

On Being Single

“I made the decision to spend time on my own and figure out who I am. When you take the other person out of the scenario and you’re walking through life on your own, you end up figuring out what you actually like without anyone else’s input. I’m not too worried about whether I meet someone. I’m going to be happy either way.”

Man Crush: Lockhart Brownlie

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!
lockhart-brownlie

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a Man Crush feature. Apologies for that. What prompted me to resurrect my man candy series? It’s actually two-fold.

Firstly, it’s because I checked out Katy Perry’s Prismatic World Tour last night. I’m not a hardcore KatyCat by any means, but I have to give credit where credit is due. The “Roar” singer slayed it. She put on a better show than I expected, charming the raucous crowd quite nicely. To boot, she was accompanied by several sexy male backup dancers. Lockhart Brownlie being one of them.

This Aussie dancer might just give Britney Spears’ Willie Gomez a run for his money as my favorite backup dancer. Dude is fiiiiiiiiiine and captivated us whenever he was in the vicinity. Dat azz is just mesmerizing ;)

Another reason why I chose to put the spotlight on the 24-year-old has to do with that rumored Taylor Swift-Katy Perry feud. Earlier this week, Swift cryptically talked about a fellow female singer who tried to sabotage her Red Tour, inspiring Swift to write “Bad Blood.”

In an interview from last year, Lockhart pretty much confirms the “Shake It Off” singer’s claims that some of her dancers jumped ship to join Perry’s tour. Be sure to read Brownlie’s interview with the Examiner for more details. In the meantime, check out several photos of Lockhart (love that name) below, showing off that chiseled body of his.

Taylor Swift is at it again. However, this time instead of dissing an ex-lover, the 24-year-old throws shade at a fellow female singer on a new track.

Naturally, Swift isn’t divulging exactly who it is, but fans are speculating it’s either Miley Cyrus or Katy Perry. My money is on Perry since there’s that nasty John Mayer connection. Nothing fuels a girl catfight more than a common beau. Read below what Swift told Billboard magazine about “Bad Blood” off her forthcoming album, 1989.

“For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, ‘Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?’” Swift, 24, told the Billboard. “[Then last year] she did something so horrible. I was like, ‘Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies.’ And it wasn’t even about a guy!”

Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off Debuts At No. 1

In: Donovan, Music
taylor-swift-shake-it-off

Love it or hate it, “Shake It Off” is the No. 1 single in the country. Taylor Swift shimmied her way to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 thanks to 544,000 first-week downloads. That number represents the biggest total of the year, surpassing Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” which held the title previously with 490,000.

“Shake It Off’s” huge debut also marks the fourth biggest bow of all-time. In fact, Swift now owns two of the four slots. Flo Rida reigns supreme with 636,000 for “Right Round,” followed by Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and Katy Perry’s “Roar” with 623,000 and 557,000 downloads respectively.

Also making a solid debut was Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda.” It lands at the runner-up slot, giving the rapper her highest charting single to date. Guess that rumored premeditated wardrobe malfunction at the MTV VMAs worked.

In other Taylor-related news, the 24-year-old released outtakes from the filming of her “Shake It Off’ music video. Watch it below.

I don’t know about you, but I just can’t get enough of Beyonce’s epic performance during last night’s MTV Music Video Awards. I could watch it all day long (and I have.) Bey made all those other bitches look like amateurs trying out for Rising Star ;) Seriously though, that woman knows how to perform. #FLAWLESS

Overall, the 2014 awards entertained. From Nicki Minaj’s wardrobe malfunction to all the shade being thrown around. There was definitely plenty to watch. What shade you ask? Well, Gwen Stefani’s hilarious index finger clap after Taylor Swift’s performance. How about Miley Cyrus caught mouthing ‘asshole’ as Ed Sheeran walked past her to accept an award. I could go on. Relive last night’s performances and a couple of awesome shady moments.

Taylor Swift Shakes It Off In Brand New Video

In: Donovan, Music
taylor-swift-shake-it-off-music-video

if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it as they say. Much like she did to kick off her Red era, Taylor Swift used a popular online destination to announce her forthcoming album and new single. This time around, she chose Yahoo! Live Stream in lieu of YouTube to share the news.

Swift unveiled her new single “Shake It Off” on Monday. The Max Martin/Shellback-produced single isn’t a jilted love song but rather a fun and upbeat pop anthem. It’s the lead cut off her forthcoming fifth studio album titled 1989- the year she was born.

The accompanying visual finds Taylor taking on different dance styles, ranging from ballet, to hip-hop to contemporary. Is someone auditioning for So You Think You Can Dance ;) Watch the 24-year-old channel her inner Black Swan below.

The Weinstein Company debuted the first trailer for The Giver back in March. With the August release date nearing, the studio released several posters featuring the main characters.

The Giver is based on Lois Lowry’s beloved young adult novel of the same name, which was the winner the 1994 Newbury Medal and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide. After spending more than 15 years in development hell, the feature film adaptation is here and with a stellar cast.

The haunting story of THE GIVER centers on Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community.

Future cinematic superstar Brenton Thwaites tackles the role of Jonas with Alexander Skarsgard and Katie Holmes playing his parents. Meryl Streep gets her evil on as the Chief Elder. Taylor Swift becomes a brunette to portray Rosemary, The Giver’s daughter. Some girls can pull off various hair colors but not Swift in my opinion. She looks better as a blond for sure. Check out the rest of the character posters below.
