Taylor Swift Forced To Perform Songs In Public Domain At Grammys After Losing Rights To Albums Again. LOS ANGELES—Hastily improvising a new set list just minutes before the live broadcast, Taylor Swift was forced to perform songs in the public domain at Sunday’s Grammy Awards after losing the rights to her albums again.
“Most Swifties were expecting to see her perform ‘Cardigan,’ but Taylor decided to show her naughty side with ‘Baa Baa Black Sheep’ instead,” said fan club moderator Tatyana Webb, explaining that another contract dispute with Scooter Braun could be behind the pop star’s decision to forgo songs from Evermore and Folklore in favor of stripped-down public domain standards such as “Hot Crossed Buns” and “A-Tisket A-Tasket”. “She started out a little slow and then transitioned into full-fledged, up-tempo numbers like ‘Everybody Loves My Baby’. And she brought so much passion into the 1892 number ‘Daddy Wouldn’t Buy Me A Bow-Wow’. Go off, queen.” Taylor Swift lyrics for military experiences. U.S.

I see it all now that you’re gone; Don’t you think I was too young to be messed with? Taylor Swift is just picking up where the Beatles left off. I'm not saying that Taylor Swift is the Beatles.
But is she? Let's look at the facts: Both the Fab Four and Swift went from youthful mega fame to durable adult success; both managed to balance being wildly popular with staying gleefully provocative; both turned their flings, feuds and phases into lucrative musical output. But where Taylor really snatches that bowl cut wig is in the way she's leaned in to fandom's obsessive belief that our idols communicate their truly enlightened followers on a whole other level.

Taylor Swift Breaks Political Silence To Throw Support Behind Restoring Shōgun To Throne Of Japan. NEW YORK—In a heartfelt social media statement to her fans, singer–songwriter Taylor Swift broke her long-standing political silence Monday to support restoring an all-powerful shōgun to its rightful place on the throne of Japan.
“Hey guys, Taylor here—I’m writing this post because I’ve been inspired by recent events to speak up about why we need to install an all-powerful military dictatorship in Japan’s imperial palace,” said the famously apolitical pop star, admitting that in the past, she had been “reluctant” to voice her long-held support for Japan’s famously brutal system of medieval clan-based governance, but felt differently after witnessing the country’s decay since the final shōgun, Tokugawa Yoshinobu, fell from power in 1868. “I believe that a weak-willed democratic Japan is WRONG.

DENVER—Taylor Swift’s next appearance in Denver won’t be in front of 20,000 screaming fans in the Pepsi Center but rather six jurors in a federal courtroom.
Swift is due to testify next week in a civil case she brought against a former local DJ who is accused of grabbing her butt during a meet-and-greet four years ago. Swift says she’s “never been so sure of anything in her life” that David Mueller intentionally put his hand under her skirt and touched her.
Mueller claims he never meant to touch Swift inappropriately when they had their photo taken together at Denver’s Pepsi Center on June 2, 2013. In fact, Mueller sued Swift first, for allegedly pressuring his bosses to fire him after he lost his $150,000-a-year job as the morning DJ at country radio station KYGO. Swift countersued for assault and battery, contending that Mueller, then 51 years old, groped her, leaving her “shocked and distressed.”
Some of the evidence in the case was destroyed by Mueller himself. This Average Guy Has Slept With More Celebrities Than Taylor Swift. Taylor Swift And Zayn Drop New Video For 50 Shades Sequel. Pop’s queen WASP and brooding ex-Directioner join forces in ‘sexy’ video you could watch with your mom.

Today Harris released "Olé" with John Newman (no relation), and though it doesn't address Taylor Swift by name or include juicy gossip about their relationship, it's still worth a listen because it's filled with a ton of embarrassing lines that sound like they were copy and pasted from an eighth grader's Tumblr.

Camille Paglia Takes on Taylor Swift, Hollywood's #GirlSquad Culture. This story first appeared in the 2015 Women in Entertainment issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Girl squads were a hashtag summer craze that may have staying power. Blogs and magazines featured intricate star charts of the constellations of celebrity gal pals clustering around Taylor Swift, Cameron Diaz, Lena Dunham or Tina Fey. Names appearing on the shifting roster of girl squads include Drew Barrymore, Reese Witherspoon, Selena Gomez, Willow Smith, Kendall Jenner, Sofia Richie, Chloe Sevigny and Karlie Kloss. Hot models Gigi Hadid and Cara Delevingne bob and weave through several groups. Adele joined the club in November when she dined out in New York with Emma Stone and varsity squad player Jennifer Lawrence. "Squad" as a pop term emerged from 1990s hip-hop (Hit Squad, Def Squad).
Do girl squads signal the blossoming of an idealistic new feminism, where empowering solidarity will replace mean-girl competitiveness? Camille Paglia slams Taylor Swift’s #GirlSquad: “Retire that obnoxious Nazi Barbie routine” In a new essay for The Hollywood Reporter, renowned academic and cultural critic Camille Paglia carpet bombed the “girly and a bit bourgeois” #GirlSquad trend, recently made popular by celebs like T-Swift, J-Law, and Lena Dunham (L-Dun?). Though acknowledging the potential for girl squads to combat ever-increasingly vicious paparazzi and a cannibalistic entertainment industry, Paglia takes exception with Swift’s “silly, regressive public image.” “Swift herself should retire that obnoxious Nazi Barbie routine of wheeling out friends and celebrities as performance props,” Paglia argues. “Girl squads ought to be about mentoring, exchanging advice and experience and launching exciting and innovative joint projects,” she continues.
'SNL' Pokes Fun At Taylor Swift's Ever-Growing Squad. Taylor Swift Is Not Your Friend. The inevitable Taylor Swift backlash begins: Watching the critical mad love crumble, right on schedule. It’s almost meteorological. The funny thing about a backlash is the way it opens things up and builds momentum on its own. It’s no coincidence that the metaphors we use for a backlash tend to be come from climactic phenomenon — an opening of the floodgates, a turning of the tide, when it rains it pours. A backlash, though made by human beings, can feel like a part of the natural world and its inexorable forces. And that seems to be what’s happening right now with Taylor Swift.
And while there are good things to say about Swift — her pushing back against streaming services that shaft musicians, for instance — this tide-turning comes not a moment too soon. 10 questions Taylor Swift could have asked herself before picking a fight with Nicki Minaj. Yesterday, MTV announced the Video Music Award nominees. While the justification for these awards existing is even thinner than that of the Grammys, it is customary that a musician releasing an instantly-iconic video might expect to be rewarded with at least a nod or two for a Moon Man statuette, with the hopes of being licked on the face by Miley Cyrus if she should win.
Such was Nicki Minaj’s understandable disappointment when “Anaconda,” her manic feminist genius send-up of Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back” and also by the way every misogynistic video trope under the sun, did pick up three nominations, but not for the highest honor, Video of the Year. Minaj, never one to mince words, tweeted a shot at the system: If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) July 21, 2015 @NICKIMINAJ I've done nothing but love & support you.

PHILADELPHIA—According to sources, local dullard Peter Merriam, 34, struggled pitifully Saturday evening to keep up with a simple conversation regarding popular international singing sensation Taylor Swift. "I was aghast at his ignorance of even the most basic works of her oeuvre," said partygoer Amy Singer, who remarked that the incurious Merriam "didn't know or appear to care" about Swift's childhood in small-town Pennsylvania or that she's the youngest person ever to win Entertainer of the Year at the CMAs.
"He flailed around like some kind of caveman for something to say about the Kanye West incident, and then tried to steer the conversation toward the health care debate. I would have pitied the man were he not so unapologetically obtuse.
