One Direction were definitely the big winners at this year’s MTV VMAs with regards to snagging the most awards. The British boy band walked away with moon statues for best pop video, best new artist, and most-shareworthy video for “What Makes You Beautiful,” beating out acts like The Wanted, Justin Bieber and Rihanna. The Bajan beauty shouldn’t be too upset, she scored the big award of the night, Best Music Video of the Year.
As with most of these things, it’s all about what people wore on the red carpet. Since it’s a music-related affair, there tend to be more fashion risks than your typical awards show. I’ve gone through all the arrivals and picked my Top 5 picks for best and worst dressed at the 2012 MTV VMAs. But before we do, can we discuss P!nk’s doppelganger?
Who knew the 32-year-old singer had a younger sister? With her new chopped blond hairdo, Miley Cyrus definitely exhibited some serious Single White Female behavior last night, channeling the “So What” singer. It’s like they went to the same salon before the event. P!nk wore a full length Stella McCartney dress, while Miley chose an Emilio Pucci sheer cutout gown. Both ladies looked great, but who did P!nk better? Cast your vote below.
Taylor Swift has just debuted her music video for “Never Ever Getting Back Together” and we’ve got your first look. The video was directed by the infamous Michel Gondry and it’s super cute.
The video starts off with Taylor ushering her boyfriend, played by male supermodel Noah Mills, out of her girly girl bedroom where we then meet her entourage of band members and friends dressed up like animals. Throughout the video, we go from scene to scene seemlessly, almost like a lip dub video combined with a pop-up story book. The video also gave me a bit of a Rebecca Black vibe, either in her “Friday” video or as part of the entourage in Katy Perry‘s “Last Friday Night” video. Not sure why, but it did.
Do you think she’s talking about an ex from real life? If so which one, or is this a message to all of them? Haha. Enjoy the cute video below.

Proving once again heartbreak translates to boffo business, Taylor Swift’s newest single, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together“, not only broke records, but also gave the country singer her first ever Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper. Hard to believe she hasn’t scored pole position on the pop chart yet. Swift came close with “You Belong With Me” and “Today Was a Fairytale“, both of which peaked at No. 2. “Mine” and “Love Story“, topped out at No. 3 and No. 4 respectively. Congrats to the 22-year-old singer for breaking her Hot 100 cherry.
“Taylor appeals to a younger female demographic that tends to buy a lot of music and after the years, she’s become a staple of two pretty popular formats, country and pop, and she’s able to manipulate both formats and be played across both,” Silvio Pietroluongo, director of charts at Billboard
“We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” broke download records during its first week. Soundscan is reporting that 623,000 units of the single were purchased online. That number represents the largest total ever by a female artist sold during a week. The previous record holder was Ke$ha and her huge hit “Tik Tok” with 610,000 downloads. Taylor accomplished this amazing feat without the assistance of the holiday season as Ke$ha did in January 2010. Swift also beats Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” total of 448,000 downloads as the best single-week debut sales frame by a female.
Yesterday, Taylor Swift released her new single, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” (which is really good) to add to her collection of breakup songs. On that note, Harvey Levin of TMZ went on a rant in a recent episode about how someone would have to be crazy to want to date her. After every breakup, she seems to write a song about her ex.
Discussing some of her exes (Joe Jonas, Jake Gyllenhaal, Taylor Lautner, John Mayer, etc.), Levin points out that there is one common thread – they break up with her… but oh, it must be them. LOL.
I don’t really know what the truth is behind those relationships, nor do I care, but they way they make her seem crazy (sort of like the Zingbot did Danielle in the last episode of Big Brother) in this is humerous. When discussing the fact that while dating Connor Kennedy, Swift bought a house next door to him, they brilliantly use a clip of Glenn Close in a ‘Fatal Attraction‘ to make their point. Enjoy the “not-to-be-taken-too-seriously” clip from TMZ below.
I’m not usually the first to write about Taylor Swift on Homorazzi, but I have to say I’ve taking a liking to the new breakup song she’s just released titled, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together“. It’s so catchy and sure to be a hit! This is the lead single off of her upcoming album, ‘Red‘.
As the song starts off Taylor sings, “I remember when we broke up the first time / Seeing this is it, I’ve had enough, ’cause like / We haven’t seen each other in a month / When you, said you, needed space, what? / Then you come around again and say / Baby, I miss you and I swear I’m gonna change / Trust me, remember how that lasted for a day / I say, I hate you, we break up, you call me, I love you”.
I think you’ll love it. This is like the opposite of “Call Me Maybe“…as in “Don’t Call Me Ever”. It actually made me think that this is a song I can totally picture Carly Rae Jepsen singing and makes me even more excited for her September 18 release of her ‘Kiss‘ album. Anyway, back to Swift – listen to this hot new track below!
Taylor Swift does have a propensity to date famous men. Could Schwarzenegger be the next to join her already famous roster of famous exes like Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer, Joe Jonas and Taylor Lautner. Better yet, can we expect Schwarzenegger to become the inspiration for one of her upcoming songs? Good luck finding anything to rhyme with that last name ;)
According to TMZ, Swift was spotted in Massachusetts with Schwarzenegger. The two were seen chatting, laughing and getting along as they walked on the beach. They were also seen hanging with several members of the Kennedy clan as they celebrated Independence Day. I wonder if Schwarzenegger and Swift saw fireworks, and I’m not talking about the ones in the sky.
Back in May, B.o.B. aka Bobby Ray Williams released his second full-length studio album titled “Strange Clouds.” The album features a long list of incredible collaborations but none jumped off the tracklist like his duet with country star Taylor Swift produced by hit makers Dr. Luke and Cirkut. The result of this unlikely duo is a surprisingly deep and dramatic track that suits Taylor’s vocals perfectly.
I can feel your pain, I can feel your struggle
You just want to live, but everything so low
That you can drown in the puddle, that’s why I gotta hold us up
I wish I was strong enough to lift not one but both us
Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us
So far, the track has peaked at number 18 on the Billboard Hot 100 but the new video treatment is sure to give the track a boost on the charts. Featuring a collection of clips and montages to showcase the struggle the song soundtracks, B.o.B.Taylor Swift get featured along the way in the mix. I love the video and think it portrays the meaning of the song perfectly. Another runaway hit for B.o.B. if you ask me. Check out the duo’s new music video below and tell us what you think of the track.
