Taylor Swift was photographed in New York last night leaving a recording studio. It’s been almost a year since the release of 1989. So even though you’ve been hearing about, it seems, forever, 1989 the full album wasn’t actually eligible for the Grammys last year. It could contend in all those coveted categories this year though. Full Story

You remember that supposed takedown piece on Gwyneth Paltrow for Vanity Fair? Graydon Carter ended up killing it – click here for a refresher. Vanessa Grigoriadis was supposed to write it. Grigoriadis has written about some of the biggest stars for some of the biggest publications. Full Story

For a while it was looking like Taylor Swift had more than just Katy Perry to deal with. Nicki Minaj shut her down. Some online sh-t with Avril Lavigne got stirred up last week. And Kanye was receiving the Video Vanguard Award at the VMAs. On Saturday night in San Diego, Taylor settled amicably with Avril, bringing her onstage to sing Complicated together. Full Story

Well I guess that’s the last time we ever really believe that someone would just host an award show without having anything to promote… Did Miley Cyrus get her ass dragged by Nicki Minaj? If it was real, she looked terrified. If it was fake, she didn’t step back hard enough to make a difference. Full Story

It’s not like we weren’t expecting it, right? I opened the blog with it on Friday – click here for a refresher. Miley Cyrus talked sh-t about Nicki Minaj to the New York Times and, oh, 72 hours later they would meet at the VMAs and this is what happened. Full Story

Nicki’s having a baby?

After Drake took down Meek Mill a couple of weeks ago, people wondered whether or not Nicki Minaj would break up with him out of embarrassment. Didn’t happen. The other night at her show in Pittsburgh, she called him her “baby father”. Then, on Twitter, when someone congratulated her, this was the response. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The nanny!

Oh my God, Ben Affleck is so…basic.

The nanny is pretty much the MiniVan Majority’s worst nightmare – it’s either Angelina Jolie or the nanny.

So the poor decision making continues. Ben Affleck cannot help himself. More on this in today’s first post.

Last night I went to the Nicki Minaj concert in Toronto. Was a really, really good show. She’s sexy as f-ck. She’s SO cute. She’s playful. She has enormous stage presence. In person, that star power is undeniable. By the end of it, I was in love with her. And afraid of her. When she tells you she’ll beat your ass, believe it.

Yours in gossip,


Nicki Taylor talked on the phone

Nicki Minaj was on Good Morning America today. And she talked about what went down with Taylor Swift this week. As you know, Taylor publicly apologised yesterday on Twitter, one of the rare times she's found herself in the wrong and having to eat sh-t. Which she did. She ate it from the internet and she ate it from the media. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Right now, I love them all. I love that they can’t f-cking help themselves. For all their weak accusations about the media creating drama that’s not there, I love that they’re the ones creating it for themselves.  Read Full Intro

I finished writing that last post… And then Taylor Swift tweeted: I thought I was being called out. I missed the point, I misunderstood, then misspoke. I'm sorry, Nicki. @NICKIMINAJ — Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) July 23, 2015 Full Story

Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift got into it on Twitter the other day. Click here for my analysis on the situation. And for those of you who insist that Nicki was targeting Taylor, click here for Buzzfeed’s solid case in defence of Nicki, and how she was consistent with her original message before Taylor even jumped in. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Sudden divorces, cheating scandals, award shows, girl sh-t, boy sh-t… It’s been an ideal week in gossip so far. Yesterday I opened with the VMAs on Miley’s announcement that she’ll be hosting, wondering about a possible Miley-Taylor Swift situation at the event.  Read Full Intro

And she was rolling along so smoothly. Taylor Swift. Friend of Everyone. Protector of Artists against Apple. It was world domination. And then…a MAJOR stumble. So the MTV VMA nominations came down yesterday. As expected, the Bad Blood video led the way with 9 nominations. Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda, however, was only nominated for 2 awards, and not in the Video of the Year category. Full Story

Bitch I’m Madonna: the video

Let me just tell you, again, how it was when I was growing up, OK? Old people do this. We have to mansplain to the new generation about the superiority of our world. Back then, a Madonna video and/or performance was a major event. It was tight. It was bold. It was always imitated. Over and over again it was imitated from basements to school gymnasiums to stages. Full Story
