Calvin Harris Turns up for Taylor Swift 1989 First Year Anniversary Concert at Miami

Taylor-Swift-Calvin-Harris

Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift seem to continue their love story much to the delight of the ‘Swifties’. This seemed evident from the fact that Calvin Harris turned up for Taylor Swift’s 1989 first year anniversary concert held at Miami.

As Swift fans all over the US celebrated the first year anniversary of her hit album 1989, Miami was getting ready to welcome her for her anniversary concert held at American Airlines Arena. The ‘Shake it Off’ singer did not disappoint her fans and the performance lived up to their expectations and more.

An added allure was the presence of her beau, Calvin Harris, which delighted her fans immensely. He was seen on the floor area of the American Airlines Arena showing his solidarity to his girlfriend as she performed on stage. Sporting a black jacket over a neutral colored T-shirt, the Scottish DJ was hoping to blend in with the audience.

However, some of the concert goers spotted him soon and were very happy imagining him singing along to hits such as ‘Blank Space’ and ‘Style’.

Other surprises sprung on the crowd during the concert included the appearance of special guests such as Dwyane Wade, the Miami-based basketball star and Pitbull. Wade welcomed Taylor Swift to his hometown and presented her with a personalized jersey. The athlete put up a message on Instagram, “13 is her favorite number and it’s my 13th season starting 2morrow… #Lucky13 will thank you @taylorswift for having me at your concert tonite and for allowing me to welcome you to Miami-WadeCounty!!!”

Pitbull performed. ‘Give Me Everything,’ the first song of the evening with the ‘Blank Space’ singer. The blond beauty then introduced another surprise guest for the evening, Ricky Martin, who she said was one of her favorite performers and whose album she had bought when she was 10. Fans were super-thrilled with the great one-year anniversary party.

Taylor Swift also posted a message on Instagram before the concert started and it said, “1 year old today!!” “#HappyBirthday1989”.

Jennifer Lawrence, Rihanna and Taylor Swift ‘Power’ Talk: Give Insight about Lessons Learnt

Jennifer Lawrence, Rihanna and Taylor Swift, three powerful women in the music and entertainment industry, spoke about the concept of ‘Power’ and what lessons they have learnt during their journey.

The thoughts were specifically about women in the race and power game that is generally more difficult in a male- and white-dominated society.

Jennifer Lawrence wrote an essay for Lena Dunham’s newsletter Lenny in which she candidly showcased her ire when she found out from a leak that her male co-stars in ‘American Hustle’ including Christian Bale, Jeremy Renner and Bradley Cooper were paid more than she was, reported Washington Post.

She said that when she heard of these updates, she was angry with herself more than anybody. She wrote in the essay, ‘I got mad at myself. I failed as a negotiator because I gave up early. I didn’t want to keep fighting over millions of dollars that, frankly, due to two franchises, I don’t need’.

However, Jennifer Lawrence added that quite frankly the reason she gave up so early was that need to be liked that made her decide to give in early during the negotiations without putting up a fight. She didn’t want to come across as ‘spoilt’ or ‘difficult’.

The ‘Hunger Games’ star went on to write about a common issue faced by women. When a woman talks authoritatively, she is considered ‘difficult’ and when a man speaks in the same manner, he is just called authoritative.  She wrote that she has had enough to playing the ‘please-all’ role.

Rihanna spoke to Miranda July, the author/director, in an interview with New York Times, which covered myriad topics including childbirth, music, etc. During this interview, July asked Rihanna her opinions on race and power.

July wanted to know how it is being a young black woman with abundant power in America. She, however, felt that Rihanna was probably a wrong candidate for the question as she is ‘postracial’ now. Hence, she asked RiRi to reflect on her past and tell her how she felt when she was made to be aware of her race when she first moved to New York.

The ‘Diamonds’ singer replied that she started experience the ‘race’ difference only during negotiations of business deals which means that people are fine with a young black woman dancing, singing, looking and partying. However, when brokering a deal, she is made aware of her race.

Rihanna added, ‘And, you know, that never ends, by the way. It’s still a thing. And it’s that thing that makes me want to prove people wrong.’ The anger she feels for such attitude is so much that it almost excites her to show them the unexpected and go beyond the perceptions that they already have regarding her.

Taylor Swift came out in the open during Chuck Klosterman’s cover story for GQ regarding the issue of power. During the course of the story, one aspect seems to have made the ‘Bad Blood’ singer bristle with anger. Klosterman referred to a time when one of her acquaintances dubbed her ‘calculating’. The interview said that Swift really hates the word and the fact that the phrase has got stuck to her image.

She retorted, ‘Am I shooting from the hip?’ If she was ‘shooting from the hip’ without thinking things through, would all the success have come to her the way it has. Taylor Swift further said that she is happy the referred acquaintance spoke about something positive that she thinks about things and that she cares for her work and hence plays tough business games well.

Swift added that one can be successful for 3-4 years, accidentally; however, careers demand hard work.  She means to say that she is tired of people writing and talking about her by linking her good business sense to her personal life.

Selena Gomez Plays Newly Friend Game with Lilly Singh: Chooses Favorite ‘Revival’ and Taylor Swift Songs

Selena Gomez played the ‘Newly Friend Game’ with Lilly Singh, the YouTube star and a self-proclaimed huge SelGo fan.

She chose Kill ‘Em with Kindness’ from Revival as her favorite and was in a dilemma to choose between ‘Bad Blood’ and ‘Wildest Dreams’ from Taylor Swift’s repertoire and ended up choosing both.

Lilly Singh invited Selena Gomez to play a round of the ‘Newly Friend Game’ in her YouTube channel, which has over 6.8 million subscribers. The game involves friends answering questions about themselves; however, they need to guess what the other person’s answer was before giving their own response.

Selena Gomez had just met Lilly Singh; the latter being a huge fan of the former was at an advantage during the game as the YouTube star whispered into the camera that she knows all about the ‘The Heart Wants what it Wants’ singer.

On being asked to name her favorite number from her latest album, ‘Revival’, Selena Gomez chose ‘Kill ’Em with Kindness’. Lilly Singh also chose the same song as she thought that ‘lyrics-wise’, this was one of her best.

Singh observed, ‘I feel like this is one of your mantras to deal with a lot of stressful times in your life and I feel like you have tweeted it twice’.

Gomez agreed with both her observations and said that each morning she wakes up and there are people who will give her their worst and it is so easy to be mean. Gomez added, ‘I’m Latin; I can be mean real fast, if I want. But I don’t feel good about myself and I think people need to hear a message like this.’

On being asked to choose her favorite Taylor Swift, she was stumped and said that it was so hard to choose her favorite from among her BFF’s songs. Finally, she opted for two including ‘Bad Blood’ (she features in the video) and Swift’s latest number ‘Wildest Dreams’. The YouTube star too named ‘Wildest Dreams’ as her favorite.

Other aspects about Gomez and Singh that were revealed during the game included: Gomez was very bad at responding to text messages; Singh is ‘the worst in relationships’, the most awful rumor that SelGo has heard about herself is ‘every single one’.

Towards the end of the game, Gomez felt her hand through Lilly Singh’s luscious hair to ensure that is real and adds a joking comment, ‘Mine, however, is very fake’.

Taylor Swift Calvin Harris Decide to Cool off from Hot Whirlwind Romance

Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris reportedly have decided to cool off from their hot whirlwind romance. Since early August, the two who have been very open till then about showing off affection for each other, have not been seen together and have avoided all public displays of affection.

There has been a lot of speculation in the media that the Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris relationship is in disarray. A source reportedly said to Yahoo News that the relationship between the Scottish DJ and the ‘Bad Blood’ singer zoomed from 0 to 60 in just a few weeks and hence the inevitable crash seems evident.

Moreover, rumors about their marriage is seeming to freak them out as neither is ready for that kind of commitment, added the source. Calvin Harris appears to have been overwhelmed by the continuous talks and rumors regarding his relationship with Taylor Swift.

Consequently, it seems now that the two celebrities have decided to take at least a temporary break from their whirlwind romance, perhaps, hoping for the hype and speculation surrounding them to cool off before thinking of rebooting their relationship.

Another reason for the cooling off period doing the rumor rounds is that Taylor Swift was purportedly very upset by a photograph showing Calvin Harris coming out of a rather shady and cheap massage parlor in Sunset Boulevard. Reports mentioned that Harris spent about two hours at the Thai spa which cost him a mere $40 per hour.

The ‘Shake it off’ singer was purportedly livid at the news and felt humiliated that her boyfriend was seen coming out of a sleazy and shady place and told him that she wanted to break off immediately.

Other sources are also reporting that Calvin Harris also has his share of complaints against Taylor Swift and her annoying habits, including spending too much time with her Girls’ squad. Calvin Harris was quite upset that her gal pals are always around them whenever they choose to hang out alone as a couple.

Apparently, both the celebrities now seem to think that it was a mistake to take their relationship to such intense levels and become public so soon. The couple seems to be going through a rough patch and fans and friends are hoping that they will pull through and be back together soon.

Taylor Swift Burn Book Spews Insults on Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj: Alleged Rumors

Taylor Swift’s upcoming alleged Burn Book is rumored to spew insults on all her rivals, including Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj.

Her image of ‘America’s Sweetheart’ is taking a beating as inside sources reveal that her true and dark colors are coming out in the open, especially since the huge success of her ‘Bad Blood’ video.

Although many of her fans still believe in Taylor Swift’s goodness of heart driven by her charity acts and coming out strongly against bullying, her recent outbursts with many of her rivals including Katy Perry is showcasing her dark and brutal side too, especially when she has to prove her dominance over her rivals.

Sources told celebdirtylaundry.com that Taylor has slammed and insulted her enemies in her Burn Book and her savage nature is comparable to the notorious Regina George, a character from Hollywood’s ‘Mean Girl’, infamously known for her scheming, controlling and belittling nature.

An insider confirmed that all her rivals, including Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj are all in the alleged book. Other people that she has spewed venom on include a teacher who had told her she cannot sing and a lady in a restaurant who was apparently very rude to her.

The source added, ‘She might change as she gets older, but for now she is the most malicious person you will ever meet, and she is constantly scheming over ways to have the final say’.  The success of ‘Bad Blood’ seems to have gone to her head, as after that she has stopped trying to be sincere or sweet.

However, this comparison of Taylor Swift with Regina George is not the first; Katy Perry had made this same comparison in a passive-aggressive tweet that she had fired off earlier, wherein she had posted the comment, ‘Watch out for Regina George in sheep’s clothing’, referring to the malicious ‘Mean Girl’ character and Taylor Swift.

Taylor Swift’s girls’ squad rules are supposedly as strict as Regina’s and sources claims that she has proved time and again that nothing will stop her from coming out on top in any feud with her rivals. Sources close to the ‘Bad Blood’ singer revealed to celebdirtylaundry.com that as a child she was very unpopular and was always bullied by the more popular kids. Perhaps, she is now looking to be that ‘popular’ person whose turn it is to bully others.

Taylor Swift Seems Set to Hit Back at Miley Cyrus for her Alleged Saturday Night Live Diss

The Taylor Swift-Miley Cyrus feud took on new ‘blacker’ shades as Miley Cyrus dissed the ‘Bad Blood’ singer through a video that mocked the ‘Walking Dead’ theme.

This happened during Cyrus’ stint as a host at the ‘Saturday Night Live’ show on October 3.

Miley Cyrus, the ‘I’ll always remember you’ singer, is known to be very open to criticizing Taylor Swift. So most people were expecting a prank or a joke on Swift when Cyrus took the stage to play host at the SNL show on October 3 and they were certainly not disappointed as a video mocking Swift was played.

The ‘mocking’ video showed two high school girls involved in a car accident and when they wake up, they find that the entire world has joined Taylor Swift’s squad. Although Miley Cyrus herself did not feature in the video, Hollywood Life reported that Swift clearly believed that the 22-year-old singer was definitely behind the dissing video.

Taylor intends to get back, though cleverly, during her next stint as the host of the SNL show, added Hollywood Life. This is despite the fact that there is no official announcement regarding Swift playing host to the SNL show anytime soon.

In an interview with New York Times in August, the ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer had said, ‘I’m not trying to be in the squad. None of my friends are famous and not because of any other reason than I just like real people who are living real lives, as I’m inspired by them’.

The famous feud between the two celebrity singers appears to have started in July when Miley Cyrus posted a photograph of Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift with their faces interchanged. Additionally, Cyrus also censored Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ in Marie Claire’s September issue.

Nicki Minaj, the ‘Anaconda’ singer, and Cyrus are also involved in a feud. Minaj had spoken disrespectfully about Cyrus during the MTV Video Music Awards function held in August. After this incident, Minaj and Swift, who were also involved in a feud with each other till then, seemed to have made peace, perhaps, against a common enemy.

A source reportedly said to Hollywood Life, ‘Taylor doesn’t want to pick sides, but she does support Nicki 100 percent. She doesn’t think that Nicki was bullying Miley. The whole opinion, according to Taylor Swfit, has been blown out of proportion’.

Taylor Swift Denies Rumors on Marriage Plans with Calvin Harris: Takes to Twitter to Clarify

Taylor Swift took to Twitter to vehemently deny rumors regarding her marriage plans with beau Calvin Harris. She also denied grapevine news regarding purchasing of real estate anywhere.

The ‘Bad Blood’ singer responded to rumors on social media with regard to her marriage plans with her Scottish DJ beau, Calvin Harris by out rightly denying them. The 25-year-old singer tweeted, ‘What the press says I’m doing: Buying a Bev Hills mansion, getting married in an English castle. What I’m doing: Playing a show in St. Louis’.

According to Variety, Taylor Swift has reportedly purchased a Samuel Goldwyn estate in Beverley Hills for $25 million. The 2-acre property includes a mansion of 11,000 square feet with five bathrooms, six bedrooms, a 2-room guest section, swimming pool, a sunken tennis court and other amenities.

Taylor Swift has been the subject of real estate rumors earlier too. Last month, rumors were rife in the social media that the ‘Shake it Off’ singer was keen on buying a Scottish castle close to her boyfriend, Calvin Harris’ home in Scotland. This news was also denied by the singer-songwriter via Twitter.

Tabloids were also reporting that the ‘Prism’ crooner’s boyfriend, Harris, was seen looking for engagement rings and the couple was planning to have a $2 million English wedding bash, according to Entertainment Tonight.

For some time now, marriage rumors were doing the rounds in the celebrity social media and in July, Harris addressed these rumors as false during an interview with KISS FM, the UK radio station. During the course of that interview Harris had denied rumors of marriage or even moving in with Taylor Swift. However, the Scottish DJ added that he is quite willing to ride the media circus if it meant being with his sweetheart.

‘It’s interesting because obviously there’s different things written about it every day and even if we don’t do anything publicly for a while, someone will make up something,’ Harris said. However, for him, since he is insanely happy with her, these rumors do not really matter much, he added.

Harris and Swift started dating each other earlier this year and ever since the couple has been spotted together enjoying themselves and with other friends like Joe Jonas and Gigi Hadid. Taylor Swift is presently busy on her 1989 World Tour. After finishing her US performances, the singer is moving to Canada and then to Asia by the end of the year.

Selena Gomez Zac Efron Link-up Rumors Set Celebrity Media Agog: BFF Swift May Disapprove

Selena Gomez and Zac Efron linkup rumors are creating a buzz in the celebrity media. Sources say that the couple was spotted together in an underground strip club enjoying themselves in each other’s company.

The ‘Come & Get it’ singer has not stopped singing about her ex-boyfriend, Justin Beiber, in her new number, Revival; but it appears that she has found a new boyfriend in her Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising costar, Zac Efron. Whether her BFF Taylor Swift will approve of her purported relationship with Michelle Rodriguez is yet to be seen.

Sources say that SelGo and Zac Efron were spotted partying hard at The Cheetah Lounge, a strip club in Atlanta. According to Classicalite.com, the Neighbors 2 actors seemed very happy and cozy with each other and bought lap dances for each other during their night out.

They were seen having a blast and flinging dollar bills at the strippers. Zac even paid one of them to do a lap dance for Selena Gomez, which she seemed to have thoroughly enjoyed.

The source added, ‘Zac was so touchy and playful with Selena all night. He tousled her hair and playfully poked her in the stomach. They looked like a giddy new couple’.

While her fling with Zac Efron is still only gossip and perhaps untrue rumors, Selena Gomez did not hesitate to talk about how enamored she is with Rachel McAdams. They, apparently, walked into the same acting classroom together and SelGo said that McAdams looked ravishing without makeup.

However, she added that she was thrilled to have met up with the True Detective actress, her bestie is still Taylor Swift. She said that it is such a crazy phase in their lives. They are at different stages in their lives yet their friendship has been so consistent. The ‘Heart Wants What it Wants’ singer said, ‘I’m just so thankful for her, you know? It’s rare to have that’.

Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris Heading to Splitsville? Rumors of Rift Rule the Roost

Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are rumored to be heading towards an imminent split as the social media grapevine is replete with stories of rift between the two celebrities.

Harris and Swift have been dating since May 2015; now sources close to the two are talking of multiple factors that seem to be souring the relationship.

The celebrity duo were seen cuddling together and posting cozy pictures on the social media since they made their relationship public at the Billboard Music Awards 2015 when the ‘Blank Space’ singer openly kissed the DJ.

However, neither talk nor pictures about the couple seem to find their way into the media these days fanning rumors of an imminent break-up. The 31-year-old DJ-singer has an infamously short temper, according to OK!Magazine. This seems to be a huge put-off for Taylor Swift, who is reportedly scared of his short fuse.

The Scottish DJ-singer took it out on Zayn Malik, who had insulted his 25-year-old girlfriend and again made his ire known when he slammed multiple media outlets for alleged manipulation, editing and faking of his tweets. While his defending attitude enamored Taylor Swift initially, she now seems to be upset and is known to have said, ‘he needs to calm down and realize that public rants don’t solve issues’.

Contrarily, according to Inquisitr.com, the blame for the alleged imminent break-up is squarely on ‘Bad Blood’ singer. The website reported that her girls’ squad which includes Selena Gomez, Martha Hunt and Gigi Hadid were apparently more important to Swift than her boyfriend and this fact heckled him quite a bit.

Moreover, Harris was never able to get enough time for himself with Swift and was constantly harangued by the presence of her girlfriends adding to his displeasure.

On the back of all this information, fans are wondering if Calvin Harris-Taylor Swift relationship is ready to break. Adding to the rumor fuel is the fact that there have been no cozy photos or talks either on Instagram or by the paparazzi.

The duo has apparently not even mentioned each other on their respective posts. Of course, their grueling and, quite often, differing schedules could be the reason for the seeming silence too. Taylor Swift is extremely busy on her ‘1989 World Tour’ while the DJ has been giving performances around the world.

Taylor Swift Adds Emmy to Her Award Kitty: Wins Outstanding Original Interactive Program Award

Taylor Swift, the American actress and singer-songwriter, added an Emmy to her award kitty as early winners for the Television Academy awards were announced. The ‘Bad Blood’ singer won the award for Outstanding Original Interactive Program for the app, ‘AMEX Unstaged: The Taylor Swift Experience’.

The app based on her ‘Blank Space’ music video is downloadable from the Apple App Store and Google Play. The app allows users to explore the extravagant and elaborate sets of the ‘Blank Space’ music video, which is directed by Joseph Kahn. Swift fans will be able to choose who to follow, where to go and what to explore in the lavish house replete with objects, characters and some amazing scene settings. The entire app leveraged on a 360 degree camera to deliver a highly interactive experience for users.

The ‘1989’ singer executive produced as well as starred in the ‘AMEX Unstaged: The Taylor Swift Experience’. Explaining the app, the singer said, ‘We’ve been able to create something that I’ve never been able to give my fans before, which is a 360 degree experience where they’re getting to explore the storyland of our video and be in the room with us’.

Taylor Swift shared the Outstanding Original Interactive Program award under the juried awards umbrella with ‘Emma Approved’, an internet series that narrates the story of Emma by Jane Austen set in the modern times. The ‘Bad Blood’ singer has been talking with Mariska Hargitay to appear as a guest star in “Law and Order: SVU’. Mariska told Entertainment Tonight, ‘We’re going to wait until the end of the 1989 World Tour to see how it goes. But it’s in the air’.

Taylor Swift’s awards kitty already has seven Grammys and now the first Emmy is also part of it. Together, she is at the halfway mark for the EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) status. She will be presented the Emmy on September 12 in Los Angeles at the Creative Arts Emmys. However, the actress-singer may not be present in person as she will be performing in Saint Paul, Minnesota, that night as part of her ‘1989 World Tour’.

Miley Cyrus-Hosted MTV VMA 2015 Marked by Justin Bieber Revival and Taylor Swift-Nicki Minaj Joint Gig

The MTV Video Music Awards 2015 was marked by many memorable events including the bizarre hosting by Miley Cyrus, revival concert by Justin Bieber and the caught-everyone-by-surprise joint musical gig by Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj.

In probably one of the most shocking incidents for VMA audience, Taylor Swift barged onto Nicki Minaj’s performance and the duo gave a rocking opening number, squashing rumors about the purported Twitter feud between the two celebrity musicians.

Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj performed the ‘Bad Blood’ number together, while Nicki Minaj also sang a medley of her hit songs including ‘Decked out in red sequins’ and ‘The night is still young’, Minaj’s performance thrilled the audience and fortunately for herself and the audience, she did not repeat the previous year’s ‘Anaconda’ faux pas, although the famed video won her the best hip hop video award this year. During her acceptance speech, the rap diva dissed out at Miley Cyrus, the show’s host, apparently to get back at the ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer for insulting her at a recent interview.

‘The Weeknd’ performance of his ‘I Can’t Feel my face’ was a pyrotechnic gig prompting Taylor Swift (living up to her usual tradition) to dance in the audience. The ‘1989’ star was joined by many, including models Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid and singer Selena Gomez, all of whom performed in her ‘Bad Blood’ video which won two awards including video of the year. Taylor Swift’s ‘Blank Space’ also won her two moon men that night.

Miley Cyrus, as the host of the show this year, seemed to outdo herself in her attempts at grabbing headlines. She did not hesitate to show off her outlandish behavior by flashing her breasts during the last moments of the show and then quipped cheekily to the audience, ‘the VMAs have not had a host in the last two years; a tradition they’ll probably return to immediately after tonight’s performance’.

In an attempted dig at Justin Bieber’s revival concert, which included his ‘flying’ act during the first public performance of his latest ‘What do you mean’, she also commented, ‘I was going to keep my jacket on, but now that I know that Justin Bieber can fly,’ and she zipped open her fur coat to reveal only a skimpy metallic leotard. As she closed the show, she spun another surprise on the audience saying she has released a new album which is available online for free.

Other performers for the awards night included Tori Kelly, Pharrell, A$Ap rocky with Twenty One Pilots and Demi Lovato with her summer hit ‘Cool for the summer’. The highest award of the MTV VMA 2015, the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award, went to Kanye West. While making the presentation, Taylor Swift shared her childhood memories with the audience saying that the first iTunes purchase she made was as a 12-year-old when along with her brother she bought Kanye West’s ‘College Dropout’. Both Swift and West happily took digs at each other in allusion to an infamous interruption made by Kanye West during a Swift acceptance speech six years ago at the VMA.

Taylor Swift Springs Selena Gomez and Justin Timberlake Surprise in 1989 World Tour Concert in LA

Taylor Swift, famed for her ‘1989’ music album, sprung Selena Gomez and Justin Timberlake as a surprise for her fans as part of her ‘1989 World Tour’ concert held at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The ambience at the concert was electrifying, what with the singer’s glimmering eyes and the arena tailored with 1989 World Tour signets and bracelets. Swift was seen connecting with her fans as she winked at them and as she moved her eyes through the crowd, she saw the new banner right next to the LA Lakers’ Championship flags. The banner had her name printed bright and bold and it literally screamed: ’Taylor Swift: Most Sold-Out Performances’.

As she recreated the magic of the ‘Mean’ song which she had written some years ago targeting an unfriendly critic, the lyrics seemed to make more sense today than when she wrote them. One of the lines in the song ran, ‘And I can see you years from now in a bar… Drunk and grumbling on about how I can’t sing’. She makes a long, meaningful pause here allowing her thousands of fans to imagine what her life would have been if she had let the words of that critic get into her head, instead of fueling her singing ambitions further. She allowed the crowd’s screams for more reach a crescendo before she sings the next line of the song, ‘But all you are is mean!’

In this last night performance of her five-day run at Staples Center, as part of her 1989 World Tour, Taylor Swift seemed soaked in the effects of her success story as she broke yet another record for a fabulous performance. As always, this performance also had surprises for her fans. First, Selena Gomez, who the ‘You belong with me’ singer introduced as her best friend, came on stage and both of them crooned ‘Good for you’ together as they careened up and down the ramp, perhaps recreating the magic of their performance at Madison Square Garden in 2011. Later, Lisa Kudrow, the Friends’ star who played the role of Phoebe Buffay, walked on stage and both of them sang the ‘Smelly Cat’ to the joy of all fans in the concert.

And finally, like the chocolate-cream topping on a rich chocolate cake, Justin Timberlake took the audience by surprise as he sneaked in from beneath the stage. He and Swift sang ‘Mirrors’ sending the crowd into raptures. This was Justin Timberlake’s first public performance after he became a dad in April this year. Taylor Swift did not disappoint her fans as she crooned many of her hit songs from ‘1989’ including ‘Bad Blood’, ‘Are we out of the woods’. ‘Style’, ‘Mean’, ‘I knew you were trouble’ and ‘Love Story.’

It did seem that the unfriendly critic of years ago was wrong about Taylor Swift. Her ‘1989’ album went 5-times platinum, her ‘Blank Video’ has got more than a billion hits and she is nominated for nine awards at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards.

Calvin Harris Stands up for Taylor Swift yet Again in her Twitter Feud with Avril Lavigne

Calvin Harris was seen standing up for Taylor Swift in her Twitter feud with Avril Lavigne on the back of some comparisons made between the ‘meet and greet’ styles of the two women singers. Some fans, however, are claiming that the singer-songwriter-DJ’s tweets were faked.

According to the Mirror, The ‘Bad Blood’ singer and the ‘Complicated’ crooner have been involved in a twitter fight from the time Taylor Swift liked a Tumblr post that featured a collage of her fan meetings, beside those of other celebrities’ fan meetings like Kanye West, Katy Perry, Lavigne and Britney Spears. The post was captioned with ‘This is most celebs with fans… and this is Taylor Swift’ taken reportedly as a nasty dig on Lavigne who is seen posing awkwardly with one of her fans.

Twitter user @UnitedforAvril picked out this post on Tumblr and twittered it with a caption, ‘Taylor Swift liked a post comparing her M&G with @AvrilLavigne’s M&G,’ creating a viral flutter between the two celebrity-singers. Avril Lavigne twittered with a ‘wise’ retort, which said that comparing is like judging, which does not reflect the character of the person who is being judged, but rather the character of the person who is making the judgmental statements. The ‘Hello Kitty’ singer also told her fans to remain positive and do everything for love.

In response to the M&G twitter feud, Taylor Swift’s beau, DJ Calvin Harris posted a message on Lavigne’s Twitter message, claimed E!News. Harris, reportedly, is said to have tweetted that Swift is not judgmental at all and that the singer was only trying to have fun with her fans. The DJ supposedly added another comment, which said that Swift was not comparing herself with Avril Lavigne in the Tumblr post.

Swift’s beau’s tweets have been all reportedly deleted immediately after. Now, however, E!News is reporting that many of Harris fans are claiming his Twitter message was doctored and photoshopped and that the original post was never published. Since the DJ-singer is yet to come out in public regarding the matter, it is unclear if the reported news is true or not.

Taylor Swift Accuses Katy Perry for her Feud with Miley Cyrus

Taylor Swift, popularly called Tay Tay, accused Katy Perry, her arch rival, for her feud with Miley Cyrus, the actor-singer. Swift reportedly knew of the closeness between Perry and Cyrus and that they hang out a lot together.

Tay Tay is suspicious that Perry is bad-mouthing her to Cyrus during their meetings. Katy Perry, said Swift, was always trying to antagonize people against her. Cyrus is merely a pawn in Perry’s hands, who is a puppet-master and I feel sorry for her, alleged Swift. Cyrus recently accused Tay Tay for excessive violence in her Bad Blood video and joined a long list of Swift slammers.

The feud is expected to snowball into something bigger considering the fact that Taylor Swift would be attending the Video Music Awards that will be hosted by Miley Cyrus. The paparazzi is looking forward for a showdown between the two. While the ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer is planning to criticize Swift during the awards ceremony, the ‘Bad Blood’ singer is expected to get her revenge by behaving like a royal and by using subtle methods.

Swift is apparently not responding to Cyrus’ social media stings further angering the Happy Hippie star. However, this non-responsiveness is reportedly not going to be considered as Cyrus is expected to do her best to target Swift and turn the full attention of the D-day onto herself. Both stars are making headlines in the media and the fans cannot stop talking about them. Swift is making headlines for her relationship with Calvin Harris, the UK singer-songwriter celebrity, her famous friend and foes and her parties. Cyrus hits the media whenever she posts or adds a picture on Instagram or when she speaks about her Happy Hippie Foundation.

It is ironic that at one time, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus were a harmonious trio. However, as Taylor’s musical career is growing by leaps and bounds, her relationships with fellow artists and musicians is on a downslide. Recently, she slammed Nicki Minaj for not nominating her Anaconda music video for the MTV Video Music Awards. Later, she ended up issuing a public apology for the erroneous burst-out.

Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift Common Foes of Justin Bieber Collaborate to Create New Song

Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber’s ex-girlfriend, turned to Taylor Swift for help to write a new song in an attempt to counter his new single ‘What do you mean’ which has gone viral recently.

Bieber’s song is supposed to reflect his side of the story about his former relationship with the ‘Good for you’ singer. Swift and Gomez hope to collaborate to release the new song so that Gomez’s version of the soured relationship story is told to the public. She purportedly told multiple social media outlets that she has had enough of giving her side of their old relationship in passive aggressive tones and now she is ready to do more on that front.

She is looking for that perfect song that will tell the world what she feels and Taylor Swift, well-known for her revenge and break-up songs, is going to help her find it. Swift’s own hatred for Gomez’s ex-boyfriend certainly helps the cause for revenge and is delighted to contribute her might, as per an article published in the Celeb Dirty Laundry. The tabloid also reported that earlier this year Gomez and Bieber got together again, but Bieber called it off when he found out that his singer-actress-fashion-designer girlfriend was two-timing him with Orlando Bloom. That he was often found in the company of Kendall Jenner, the American television personality and supermodel, did not help the relationship too.

The release date of the new song is yet to be announced; however, it is purported that this ‘revenge act/song’ is bound to make both their singles a big commercial hit. The collections from Gomez’s new song are expected to exceed that of her last song ‘I want you to know’, which was a collaborative effort with Zedd. The Bieber-Gomez feud is expected to rake in the moolah for both of the singers and make them richer. The fans of Gomez and Swift are expected to be in for a treat if this Gomez-Swift collaboration works, the site reported. The publication also suggested that the new found friends could look at making another music video on the same lines as Swift’s famous ‘Bad Blood’ single and perhaps get another celebrity to throw a few jibes at Bieber.
