Check out the new cover of Us Weekly. This is the first front on, clear shot of Swifty and Jakey together since they’ve been together, held back by the photo agency for maximum value... and it looks like the right move too – a cover photo can command upwards of $25K, if it’s the right one. Full Story

What are you buying??? A question for another time... The point is my Mimi is selling her sh-t on HSN. Tacky ass rainbow butterfly cubic zirconia and crystals. Full Story

OMG. So good. SO GOOD! As mentioned earlier, my friend M alerted me to the latest this morning. But here’s the background. For over a year now everyone has been talking about Nicki Minaj. Minaj’s new album dropped this week. And deservingly so.

Part of it is totally psychological for me. Full Story
