Spring is here and with that, so is Taylor Swift. Let’s just hope she doesn’t read any reviews of her singles, because apparently a new trend is for artists to read a blog and then completely lose their mind. Read on to find out what I mean, and also how 50 Cent is also a Bravo fan.
Taylor Swift Releases Her Latest Single. We’re not sure if it was therapy or just being able to spend a few times in London, where everything is just better — but TSwift is back and bubbly. You heard me, the old Taylor couldn’t come to the phone because she was too occupied writing a song about spelling. Yikes. Okay, but to be honest? At first listen I was scared for her future but now it’s been 48 hours and it has been on repeat for 27 of those hours. I wonder if Nikki Glaser could also be on the forefront of a viral challenge for this song, too: #MeAtUrbanChallenge. Check out her new video here.
Celebrities Started to Go After Bloggers. This past week, celebrities took to Twitter not to promote a new album or perfume line for Walmart, as they usually do — but rather to attack bloggers. That’s right, they’re sick and tired of people writing about…. The things they do and say. Which I mean, fair — but don’t you think being mean to people who you’re mad at for writing about you is a bad move because they’ll, you know, write about that? Ariana Grande came after E!’s Morgan Stewart after she said Bieber’s Coachella performance was weak, Lizzo flipped at Pitchfork for their honest review of her album, and Olivia Munn published a 2-page essay cause someone didn’t like her outfit. Same. Which begs the important question: WHY IS NO ONE COMING AFTER ME? Which celebrity should I try to start a feud with? Let me know. Read more about this on W Magazine.
50 Cent Is In A Fight With A Bravo Reality Star. I’m still processing the fact that 50 Cent knows what Vanderpump Rules is. I guess it’s mainly because his producing partner, Randall Emmett, is engaged to one of the breakout stars of the series who is convinced Tupac took over her body when he died. The one and only: Lala Kent. This all went down when 50 Cent, or “Fofty,” as Randall accidentally called him, posted about how Lala is just using Randall for money and Randall is an idiot. Shots were fired over Twitter and now Randall had until today to give 50 Cent the million dollars he apparently owes him. Here’s hoping Lala posts some Detox Tea on Instagram to help him raise the funds. Read more on Betches.
Indie Band Cvrches Received Death Threats After Commenting On Chris Brown. Cvrches, a band I always forgot I know of, had a pretty exciting April. Their single, “Here With Me“ featuring DJ and potential Masked Singer inspiration Marshmello debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 — a first for them. Here’s hoping they didn’t pop that champagne too early, though, because they’ve now found themselves in hot water with their collaborator that brought them this success. Marshmello, after releasing a new song with Chris Brown and Tyga, was called out by the band for choosing to collaborate with known abusers. A good sentiment that people probably don’t expect to get hate from, but then, I guess we don’t know who Chris Brown fans are… seriously who are you? You all still exist? They’ve been getting death threats since their public post, but at least their song is good? Read more on TMZ.
J-WOWW Got A New Man And WOWW, He’s Fine. I know we were all worried, so I’m happy to report that J-WOWW does in fact have a new man to take selfies with. And, I guess she loves being called mommy, cause her new beau is 24 years young, which I guess is why they went to Disney together. His last name is Carpinello, so she’s still only attracted to men who could double as a food item on the specials list at Sardi’s. Read more on TooFab.
