Taylor Swift has decided not to submit "Fearless (Taylor's Version)" for any Grammy or CMA awards



  • “After careful consideration, Taylor Swift will not be submitting Fearless (Taylor’s Version) in any category at this year’s upcoming Grammy and CMA Awards,” according to a Republic Records representative.

  • “Fearless has already won four Grammys including album of the year, as well as the CMA Award for album of the year in 2009/2010 and remains the most awarded country album of all time."

  • Swift’s ninth studio album, Evermore, released in December 2020, will be submitted to the Grammys for consideration in all eligible categories.

  • Swift’s decision leaves room for voters to focus on Evermore, rather than potentially split their votes between the two projects.

  • The surprise album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, giving Swift eight consecutive No. 1 debuts.

  • Evermore returned to No. 1 this June for a fourth nonconsecutive week, making Swift the artist with the third-most weeks at No. 1 on the all-genre album chart behind The Beatles and Elvis Presley.

Jennifer Lopez plays coy when asked about Ben Affleck romance



Jennifer Lopez politely deflected questions about her love life during an appearance on the “Today” show Tuesday to promote the re-release of her song “Love Make the World Go Round” with pal Lin-Manuel Miranda. The song is being rereleased for the fifth anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting.

Hoda Kotb, who doesn't know how to read a room, told Jennifer, "Every time I see a picture of you and Ben, I’m like, ‘She looks happier! She looks happier!’ Are we happier?"

Jennifer redirected the question, stating, much to Lin Manuel Miranda's glee, "The song is out. Five years since we’ve done it and I believe that that message of loving one another and coming together and love is never more relevant than it is right now."

Hoda then attempted to pull the friend card, saying, “Wait, it’s me you’re talking to, you know that?,” to which JLo replied, “I know, you can call me. You have my number.”

Nice one, Jenny.

Britney Spears' conservatorship ordeal hauntingly echoes another dark episode in Hollywood history


For the past decade, writer Liz Brown has researched the life and trials of Harrison Post, "a wealthy gay man who was taken captive and defrauded by his family under the guise of 'protection'" in the mid-1930s, chronicled in her new book Twilight Man: Love and Ruin in the Shadows of Hollywood and the Clark Empire.

In an essay for Slate, Brown draws parallels between the Post case and that of Britney Spears, whose allegations of conservatorship abuse at her father's hands have gripped the public for the past month.

LANY announces world tour while allegations of emotional abuse & predatory behaviour go unaddressed








Paul Klein aka ex of Dua Lipa and Nicola Peltz has been accused of preying on young fans via social media, inviting batches of them to shows and emotionally manipulating more than one. The tweets (more at the source) surfaced in December 2020 and nothing much came of it, but they've since come back around in the midst of LANY announcing their world tour a few days ago. LANY apparently has an all male team which is not uncommon in the music industry and one young fan claims their manager was involved with getting her to meet with Paul backstage after a show. Nicola Peltz has also (sub)tweeted calling the relationship toxic, abusive and negative.

Fans are now super angry that LANY has designed special wristbands for fans attending their shows alone, to identify them as such which could be a safety concern and encourage predatory behaviour at their shows.

Paul was seen earlier this week naked in The Forum parking lot promoting their show there in November. Even OP thought this was gross.

Ryan Reynolds Talks About Beginning of His Relationship with Blake Lively



talking on the Smartass podcast:

“I met Blake on the darkest crease in the anus of the universe called Green Lantern. We were friends and buddies and about a year and a half later we went on a double date but we were with dating separate people. We hung out and we always kind of kept in touch sort of casually and next thing you know, she was going to Boston. I was going to Boston and I said I’ll ride with you.”

“We got on the train and we rode together. I was just begging her to sleep with me.”


Blake is the better pandemic parent:

“They had a tough time. I was seeking out external help left and right. I was reading books. I was trying someway to steer the ship. Blake was so much better at it then I was because I’m also a child.”

16 (5) Television Teachers Who Were Actually The Worst


1. Annalise Keating from How to Get Away With Murder: “Even though she did help her students get out of bad situations, she always had a hand in putting them there.”

3. Will Schuester from Glee: “I know it’s always talked about, but I just can’t get over how the show continued to represent him as a good guy when he did so much wrong and was never held accountable for his actions. Apart from being creepy and having a superiority complex, he was just a bad teacher who didn't know the subject he was teaching and only started the glee club to justify his feelings that he was a ‘good person.'”

8. Ezra Fitz from Pretty Little Liars: “Not only did he date a student, but he dated a student to get information from her. [Spoilers]I hated that he and Aria got married in the end because it kinda gave the idea that student-teacher relationships are okay, when they’re definitely not.”

13. Max Medina from Gilmore Girls: “He's a very sweet guy, but he and Lorelai should have known better than to put Rory in such an awkward place like that. Remember when Paris Geller told everyone that the new girl's mother was dating the English teacher? Teachers and parents should protect, not mortify, students.”

16. Mr. Peterson from Dawson's Creek: “Didn't he force a kid to come out in front of his entire class? Boo”

Revisiting Rolling Stone's "The Tragedy of Britney Spears"


On February 21, 2008, the first of two Rolling Stone covers starring Britney Spears that year hit newsstands. Using a portrait of Spears taken in 2004, it invited readers "inside an American tragedy," by way of a nine-page story by then-contributing editor Vanessa Grigoriadis.

Unable to secure a sit-down with her troubled subject, the journalist's contact with Spears, "a perfectly-proportioned porcelain doll with a nasty weave," was limited to distant encounters as she tagged along with paparazzi from Hollywood.tv. (Grigoriadis would later cite the website's founder, Sheeraz Hasan, as her primary source.)

"The Tragedy of Britney Spears" seemed to confirm several longstanding rumors about Spears—that she'd had, and swiftly removed, breast implants in her late teens, and had consummated her relationship with Justin Timberlake long before publicly proclaiming abstinence—and suggested that she'd been abusing pills prior to her first hospitalization on January 3 of that year. It painted her, not as a young woman in the throes of a mental health crisis, but as a chain-smoking "inbred swamp thing," "arrogant, anxiety-ridden and paranoid."

Below, eight of the story's most illuminating and/or sensational passages.
