Taylor Swift Gossip
Taylor Swift gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
I just realised it’s Friday and I haven’t written once about Taylor Swift’s friend collecting. She’s gone an entire week without collecting a friend! Does that mean the backlash really is in full effect? In the absence of any updates to Taylor Swift Collection, we have Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence. Full Story
Remember when Victoria Beckham said she doesn’t read books, only magazines? That philosophy went out the window with her French tips, hair extensions and melon boobs. My favourite book shop! X happy Tuesday, love from LA! X 🌞🇺🇸🙏 x vb Full Story

Taylor Swift played Boston this weekend. And during Bad Blood, a shark showed up over her left shoulder. As you know, Bad Blood is widely believed to be about Katy Perry. Full Story

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
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. As usual.
But what about the publicist? It used to be the publicist’s job. Before Facebook and Instagram and Twitter, there was a buffer between whatever it was that a celebrity wanted to say and whatever it was that they ended up saying. Now, as artists claim to want a more direct line between themselves and their public, the publicists can only stand by and face-palm. And cringe. Because, as we’ve seen so often, most of the time, people who are famous don’t make good decisions in conflict. Gossip is grateful for it.

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.

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. Nicki Minaj stepped in instead. The winner in all of this, of course, is MTV. That show is now basically going to be 3 hours of closely monitoring camera cutaways and reaction shots. More on the Nicki-Taylor Twitter throwdown later.
In other Taylor Swift news, Jake Gyllenhaal’s on Howard Stern today. Howard gets away with questions no one else gets away with. And I can’t imagine Howard deals well with movie star publicists giving him a list of questions and subjects he’s not allowed to ask about. Read Full Intro

Beyonce stepped out yesterday after MTV nominated her for 5 VMAs, including Video of the Year. And they’re saying she’s a co-frontrunner in the category with Taylor Swift, of course. And, well, that just reminds us all of 2009, doesn’t it? I’ve asked you this already but it’s worth asking again – now that 6 years have passed, and you look back on that incident…do you still feel the same outrage? Kanye West was objecting to Taylor’s video winning over Beyonce’s Single Ladies. Full Story

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
Miley Cyrus confirmed yesterday on Instagram that she’s hosting the MTV VMAs August 30. Taylor Swift just happens to have that night off from touring. And the night before, she’s close by, in San Diego so it’s not like she’d have to travel far. MTV will announce the nominations today. And, after the year she’s had, and all the collecting that’s happened, it’s hard to imagine Taylor not showing up on that list.

Several of you have emailed me about Jake Gyllenhaal on Good Morning America today. Specifically the music that was playing at the beginning of the interview. Oh, a song called Bad Blood. By Taylor Swift, the girl he pulled a cut and run on a few years ago. Can you see it on his face? His expression when the camera first comes to him, does that give anything away? Robin Roberts is complimenting him in that shot. Full Story
If you’re not down with Taylor Swift, you’re not going to like this. I wrote the other day that she’s probably not the one doing the inviting anymore. Everyone else wants to be invited. Everyone wants to be on the Squad. Even Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan. Stewart tweeted at Taylor yesterday: So @IanMcKellen Full Story
