Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez went out for lunch yesterday. And there were a lot of paps around to document the event. Conveniently this happened just after Madonna released the poster for her new video – which has finally dropped on Tidal (so, naturally, I’m waiting for it to be made available on YouTube and besides, I heard the last 30 seconds of it is f-cked up…so this doesn’t look great on Jay Z either) – featuring Beyonce, Katy Perry, Minaj, Miley, and others… kinda like Bad Blood.

Taylor Swift put together a video featuring all of her friends for Bad Blood. And you know the song is supposedly about Katy Perry. Now Madonna is …well… Kinda doing the same… WITH Katy Perry. Here’s what she posted on Instagram: Video coming soon! Just tryin to make it perfect for all of you ❤️🌹❤️🌹❤️🌹❤️🌹❤️😄❤️😓❤️😁 we are hard werking bitches! #bitchimmadonna Full Story
This just in… Janet Jackson announced on her website this morning that there’s a new tour. We already knew about the new album coming in the fall. And to support it, she’ll be going live. She’s coming for us live. She’s coming BACK for us… live. If you’re not smashing around your office or desk or on the bus, hootin’ and hollerin’ with excitement, I don’t know what’s wrong with you.

So it wasn’t true. Katy Perry is not releasing a song called 1984 as a slap-back to Taylor Swift. Her managers confirmed to Billboard that the story was bullsh-t. There is a 1984 that has been registered but it’s not hers. Katy also retweeted Billboard’s clarification on the issue which means there’s nothing to see here…
But what were those few hours like when Taylor Swift thought that there might have been something to see there? Well, around the same time that the rumour about 1984 was circulating, Taylor was also retweeting online articles. This story in ESQUIRE featuring Taylor and Beyonce with the title…
How Beyoncé and Taylor Swift Conquered the World with Pop Music
…that namechecks Katy Perry, who’s a major player in pop too, like she’s an afterthought. You think she’d want to be part of that conversation?
It’s the only flattering headline about Beyonce that’s come out this week. The Beyhive felt f-cked over after her Good Morning America shenanigans a few days ago – click here for a refresher – as people continue to not give a sh-t about her 22 Vegan Days, and, at the same time, seriously hate on Tidal. Bey is supposedly releasing an “athleisure’ clothing line with Topshop in the fall. Seems a lot more on-brand than kale. But can she remain as removed from the consumer while promoting that than she has been with the vegan business? Would you buy it anyway because it’s fashion?
Yours in gossip,
A new Miley Cyrus song hit the internet this week. There’s no information about whether or not it’ll be on a new album or if Nightmare was supposed to be on Bangerz but never made it. Given that it’s a strong single though, I have a hard time believing it would have been discarded. Full Story

Katy Perry has reportedly registered a song called 1984. That’s when she was born. But, not surprisingly, and understandably, everyone’s wondering whether or not it’s a slap-back to Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood off her smash hit album 1989. Come on. This is not a reach. We’ve been talking about how they hate each other for months. Full Story

These pictures of Prince Harry and Lady Gaga, with Tony Bennett last night, crack me up. It’s the glitter eyebrows, which I totally want to try one day. And she’s standing there, with her glorious cleavage front and centre (and this is TAME by her standards!), next to a dude from the squarest family in the world. Full Story

I switched over to Game Of Thrones just before the Fun Home performance at the Tony Awards last night but Duana sent me a text making me promise to go back to Ring Of Keys after the dragons. Oh my God, Sydney Lucas. Your swagger… Your dungarees! Watch this one. Will she be an Anne Hathaway or more like a Lea Michele? Or… Anna Kendrick? I’m going to predict a Hathaway-Kendrick hybrid.

Game Of Thrones’s Iwan Rheon was at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards last night in London with his girlfriend. Some of you have emailed me lately about how hot he is, like it's a new discovery. Um. Excuse me. We already talked about this a few years ago when I was obsessed with Misfits. Full Story
You remember when there was a Beyonce and a Sasha Fierce? FKA twigs has one too. Only, hilariously, hers is called “Melissa”. I don’t know why that’s so funny to me. And she claims it’s not a “weird alter ego” which is maybe why it’s “Melissa”. Full Story

When I checked Twitter this morning, “Louis & Lauren” was a worldwide trending topic. One Direction and something is always a worldwide trending topic. At least one, sometimes two. Right now they’re trying to start a rumour that Zayn is rejoining the band. This is not happening. Full Story
