Dear Gossips,

So I think I might disappoint you again with the following: I LOVE the new Taylor Swift album, 1989. It’s a dance in your kitchen kind of album. It’s a play in the background while you’re getting ready with your team kind of album. It’s a play in your car on the way to the airport to drop off your best friend after the most amazing weekend kind of album.

And it’s not that Taylor isn’t pissed anymore. At the boys, at the broken hearts they leave behind. It’s just that she seems a lot less… petulant? Less petulant in her anger? I never thought I’d want to have a conversation with Taylor Swift before, like a real conversation. And now, after listening to this album, after hearing her music, I’m starting to believe Taylor Swift might have something to say.

Or, again, maybe it’s just that I grew up in the 80s. I can’t resist this sound.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick Jr are shooting the Hollywood round of the upcoming season of American Idol this week. The show’s keeping her paid until Spring 2015. And then, I guess, she starts working on the Vegas show? No confirmation has happened yet, but I can’t imagine they’d waste that announcement when there’s nothing else to co-promote. Full Story

Taylor Swift performed Out Of The Woods on Kimmel last night. They shut down the block for her. I told you last week that I love the song – click here for a refresher – and that I can’t stop listening to it. Seeing her performing it is an entirely different experience. Full Story

TMZ is reporting that Jennifer Lopez is working on a Vegas deal. Apparently she’s negotiating with The Axis at Planet Hollywood for 72 shows over 24 weeks that would pay her $350K each time. It’s similar to Britney. Except, well, didn’t you think that JLO had a lot more going on than Britney? For Britney, the Vegas thing makes sense, because …you know. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I can’t stop listening to Taylor Swift’s new song Out Of The Woods. And it’s not even a hate-listen. It’s a want-listen. And I love the lyrics. For me, it’s this line:

“Like we stood a chance”

Maybe it’s because I’m so 80s.

Maybe because almost everyone I’ve ever dated was heinous. And I should have asked myself more often whether or not we were out of the woods. No, no, I should never have gotten INTO the woods.

Anyway, I’m sorry. It feels like I’ve done something wrong, paying $1.29 for the song. I feel like I’ve disappointed you. But still, I can’t stop listening. Is that meta in some way?

If you’ve not heard it yet – and you’ll soon not be able to escape it – click here  Read Full Intro

Beyonce, JayZ, and the Blue Ivy Carter were at the Gare du Nord Station in Paris today. As you can see, B is wearing a heinous new hairstyle/wig. And, worse, it’s totally off brand. This, after all, is the person who gets the Louvre shut down so that she and her family can enjoy a private tour. Full Story

Taylor Swift changes the conversation

When we talk about the fame game and the celebrity ecosystem, and who sells best and who understands the play, it’s often a long-term case study. Think of how the Jolie made her moves – it didn’t happen in a year, but it was a well-executed multiple-down strategy, sometimes advancing only one or two yards, sometimes it was 15 yard major gain, followed by a modest 4 yard run. Full Story

Beyonce and JayZ took the Blue Ivy Carter to the Louvre yesterday. They’ve been playing happy Parisian family for a few weeks now since the end of the On The Run tour. Please note Blue’s leather jacket. It’s SKIRTED. It’s gorgeous. Is it better than any leather jacket you’ve ever had? I thought so. Full Story

A hoarse butterfly

Mimi, our Elusive (but omnipresent) Chanteuse, kicked off her tour in Tokyo the other night. Mimi’s been in the news a lot lately because she and Nick Cannon have separated. And she and Jermaine Dupri broke up too. And no one who isn’t a lamb cared about her new album. So it was time for a good headline. Full Story

Taylor Swift’s British VOGUE debut

You see the difference when she’s styled editorially? I LOVE how they’ve dressed her for this. Even though they’re good girl colours and it’s not a total departure from her palate, the vibe is so fresh and funky and she looks great with her hair punked up like this. All of it is of course in service of the release of the new album. Full Story

We are nearing the end of Adam Levine’s reign as Sexiest Man Alive. Thanks God. I don’t get it. I have never gotten it. Not the music, not him. The video for Maroon 5’s Animals was just released today featuring Adam’s real-life wife, Behati Prinsloo. Full Story

We’ve featured so many douchebags today, I didn’t want to leave out John Mayer. Mayer played a show in Chicago this weekend. In fairness to him, he’s kept his douche rather muted lately. Very quiet. Smart move. Just put your head down and sing. And he does this, John Mayer. He knows how to do this…on a limited time basis. Full Story

Chris Pratt was photographed at LAX yesterday on his way to New York. He’s hosting the season premiere of Saturday Night Live this weekend, an understandable choice. Pratt has had an amazing summer – Guardians Of The Galaxy has turned him into a major star, and he’s worn it well. Full Story

The entire video is about ass and I’m talking to you about her hair… But after about 30 seconds, with all that ass in your face, you start to zone out of the ass and focus on other things. It’s the full-length video for Jennifer Lopez’s Booty featuring Iggy Azalea who, frankly, looks like sh-t next to JLO. Full Story
