Looks like Calvin Harris and Katy Perry will officially be welcoming Kim Kardashian and Kanye West into Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” squad…

Media mogul Kim Kardashian made true on her vow to reveal the truth about the latest chapter in Kanye West’s ongoing feud with celebrity sweetheart Taylor Swift.

After seemingly apologizing for his disastrous (yet iconic) mid-speech interruption at the 2009 VMAs, fans speculated that Taylor Swift and Kanye West had put their long running feud to bed. After exchanging a series of barbs over the years, Taylor Swift seemingly forgave the controversial rapper and befriended he and his wife, Kim Kardashian. In fact, the rapper and “Shake It Off” songstress were seemingly so close that Swift was selected to honor West with the Video Vanguard Award at the 2015 VMAs. The world rejoiced as the twosome seemingly became close pals.

Their new relationship was undoubtedly going swimmingly, that is until Kanye West released The Life of Pablo lead single “Famous.” The Rihanna-assisted track alludes to the iconic 2009 VMAs happening before West brazenly proclaims that he made “that bitch” famous. While some would think that the grossly overconfident lyrics were just Kanye being Kanye, others were not impressed.

Taylor Swift was not amused…

Swift was quick to announce herself as a victim of Kanye’s inflated ego and went as far as to circuitously refer to the lyrics while accepting a Grammy for her 1989 album at the Grammy’s this year. It seemed that Taylor Swift had truly become a victim of Kanye West once again, but is that truly the case?

Enter Kim Kardashian…

Although Kanye has remained relatively tight lipped regarding the incident, his wife was irked by Swift’s response. Her anger seems to stem from the fact that Swift was in fact aware of the sexually charged name drop before the track was released.

According to Kim, Kanye spoke with Swift about the lyrics while recording, and she appreciated the tongue in cheek lyricism. Even better, they had the footage on tape.

Last night’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians delved into the feud, as Kim Kardashian vowed to defend her husband against naysayers between scenes of her serving her svelte figure behind the scenes on Fergie’s “M.I.L.F.$” video shoot. As the devoted wife was defending her husband’s honor on the show, Kardashian took things even further by uploading the damning video evidence to her SnapChat. It’s pretty damning…

In the video, Kanye West read the possible lyrics to Taylor Swift and  confirmed that she was alright with them. Swift approved the lyrics without batting an eye, complimenting West for confirming with her and vowing to defend the decision at the Grammys (l.o.l.). The twosome exchanged some friendly banter before hanging up and going their separate ways. The rest is history…

Shortly after the footage began trending, Taylor Swift had already moved into damage control mode. The “Bad Blood” songstress posted an official statement on social media. In the statement she decried the evidence for being taped without her knowledge; she also took issue with being referred to as “that bitch.” Swift went on to defend her case before asking to be left alone by the Kardashian-West family. “I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative, one that I have never asked to be a part of, since 2009.”

Members of Swift’s infamous squad of friends were quick to jump to her defense on social media. Chief amongst her defenders was Taylor’s BFF Selena Gomez. The “Good For You” siren attempted to redirect attention towards more worthy topics; however, the damage had already been done. As she and other friends made their pleas, #KimExposedTaylorParty trended worldwide… 

The footage is unfortunately the latest drama to befall Swift in recent weeks. Earlier this month Swift’s ex-lover Calvin Harris very publicly denounced the songstress and vowed to not be swept under the rug like Katy Perry had been by her team. All in all, July has not been Swift’s month this year…

Zayn Malik

Zayn Malik is getting ready to give you a glimpse in that mind of his, but is he coming off as exceedingly ungrateful about his time with One Direction in the process? Probably…

We are just a few hours from the release of former One Direction boybander Zayn Malik‘s debut solo single “Pillow Talk,” and the UK crooner is turning up the heat on his promotional schedule. Although Malik cancelled his first televised appearance, set to air on The Graham Norton Show on Friday (January 29), he was able to participate in an interview with Apple Music to discuss both his past and his future…

In the interview Zayn shared some exciting news about the development of his upcoming album, titled Mind of Mine. 46 or so songs were written and recorded in the process of creating the album; however, fans can expect between 17 and 18 to make their way onto the final album. After years of being part of a group, Zayn has decided against including any collaborations on Mind of Mine. 

The album will entirely ride on the successes or failures of Zayn Malik.

While talk of a new album is exciting, Zayn also used the opportunity to share additional insight into his decision to leave One Direction last March. This is where things get a little troubling.

Check out the footage, more information about Mind of Mine, and Malik’s talk on One Direction below!Continue reading

beyonce dragged for alleged film project

Beyonce is said to lack “basic human dignity” to write or star in an alleged biopic. Dayum…

Rumor has it that musical hitmaker Beyonce is in the process of writing a biopic about a historical circus sideshow act, and the response has been less than stellar. The film in question is said to delve into the life of the enslaved Saartjie Baartman, a South African woman of Khoikhoi descent. Referred to as a “Hottentot Venus” Saartjie (also known as Sarah) was brought to London in the early 1800s and was exhibited as a sideshow act due to her large bottom.

After years of being exhibited in circuses throughout London and Paris Sarah’s death wasn’t enough to earn her freedom from her captors, as her body was preserved and put on display in shows. Although she died in 1815, Sarah was not laid to rest until 2002.

Beyonce, one of the most awarded musical artists in history, is said to be hungry for a similar recognition in the film industry. After several projects have failed to strike up the appropriate amount of attention, it has been alleged that the artist believes writing and starring in this project will earn her an Academy Award. Sources have gone as far as to claim that Saartjie’s story “could be her ticket” to success in the film industry.

Although Beyonce is keen on taking on the project, unsurprisingly it has not been met with unanimous appreciation. Chief Jean Burgess of the First Indigenous Peoples of South Africa has voiced a dissenting opinion about the project, and he is obviously less than impressed by the rumors of her hunger for an award.

Britney Spears brings new meaning to the concept of jumping over drama and landing on her feet after handling a prop malfunction during Britney: Piece of Me…

With a taste of your lips she’s on a ride… Er, that’s usually the case for pop icon Britney Spears; however, due to a prop malfunction at Spears’s January 2 Piece Of Me Show the “Toxic” siren was left taking the stairs.

The malfunction in question occurred during the show’s jungle themed set and was centered around the largest prop on the show, a massive tree which figures heavily into the “Toxic” performance. After performing a stripped back ballad version of the track atop the tree Britney Spears takes an epic leap through rain to join her dancers on the ground. Although the Britney Jean songstress was strapped into her bungee harness and ready to take the plunge (to a toxic paradise), stage hands realized that the set was not working appropriately and rushed up the prop to unhook her).

Watch it all unfold below!
