Taylor Swift Doesn’t Chase Boys!

taylor-swift1

She writes breakup songs to feel better about herself after she gets canned, but Taylor Swift claims that she goes into these relationships casually and she isn’t really the one who does the chasing in the first place.

And when it comes to writing these songs that she has raked in millions for is therapeutic. She recently told Elle magazine, “To me it’s just writing songs the way I always have. It’s me sitting on my bed feeling pain I didn’t understand, writing a song, and understanding it better. If people want to dissect the lyrics, that’s their right, but it’s all coming from the exact same place as where I started. It’s just something I do to feel better.”

That’s all fine and dandy, but something we did not know until now is that when T-Swizzle is dumped by a guy she’s not crying for him to come back. She explained, “If something’s done, it’s done. I don’t think I’ve ever yelled at an ex-boyfriend. Ever. I’m not a yeller. I’m not a fit thrower.”

She just reveals all in a song.

As for those rumors that she seeks out the next guy to chase, Tay Tay says that’s rubbish, yo. She said, “I’m sure if I looked up the latest Google Alerts rumor it would say I’m chasing somebody who doesn’t like me as much as I like him – people love that angle on me. They’re like, ‘Oh Taylor, coming on too strong again, chasing boys’. I never chase boys. They don’t like it!”

They don’t like songs written after them either, especially if they are being publicly humiliated. I know, I know she doesn’t name any names in her songs, but got damn. It sure as hell isn’t hard to figure it out!

Just saying.

whitney-houston

How freakin’ cool is this?!

Earlier this morning (Monday, February 11), Madame Tussauds Las Vegas unveiled a wax figure of singer, actress and producer Whitney Houston.

The first single from Houston’s second studio album was titled “I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)” and earned the Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the 30th Grammy Awards in 1988. The song’s accompanying video became one of Houston’s best recognized music videos and ran in heavy rotation on MTV, VH1, and BET. At Madame Tussauds Las Vegas, Houston’s wax figure will be styled in the same way she appeared in the video, wearing a tight purple-pink tank dress and blonde curly hair.

Whitney Houston

“We are excited for one of Whitney’s four amazing figures to reside in our music room here in Las Vegas alongside other music legends,” remarked Madame Tussauds Las Vegas General Manager Rosita Chapman.

I absolutely LOVE this! So cool and what a great way to honor the late, great. Miss and love you Whitney!

Justin Bieber’s Mother Talks Selena Gomez on Today Show

justin_bieber

Justin Bieber’s mother Pattie Mallette is on a small promotional tour promoting her new film Crescendo I, which touches on abortion. In an appearance on the Today show, Mallette was asked about the flick, but was also asked about her son’s relationship with Selena Gomez. What did you think, the Today Show was going to go without asking someone personal about JB? Bitches, please.

Savannah Guthrie asked, “Everybody watches his personal life, we know about this relationship with Selena. I don’t know if moms get a vote, but are you hoping they keep it going?”

“You know, I just try and support whatever he’s wanting and I think she’s a sweetheart, and whatever they decide is great,” Mallette said.

It was over the holidays that the two were supposedly done with each other, but rumor has it that they were once again rekindling their romance…giving it another go of their relationship.

Selena Gomez’s mother Mandy Cornett is also concerned about Selena getting back together with Justin…in fact, she wants it to happen. A source told the Chicago Sun-Times that “This is more about getting Justin to clean up his act and his image. Both these kids undoubtedly will date lots of people before they truly settle down.”

My guess is that these two will always be having their issues until they each can grow up and experiment and experience life without one another. But I also think that eventually they will end up back together in the end. I know that is a sore spot for the Beliebers, but hey, would you rather he be dating some idiotic moron? At least Selena is likeable.

Justin Bieber SNL Performances (VIDEOS): As Long As You Love Me, Nothing Like Us

justin-bieber-snlo

Justin Bieber also served as musical guest on last night’s Saturday Night Live and went unplugged for the performances of As Long As You Love Me and Nothing Like Us.

Yes, Bieber pulled off these performances LIVE, mind you and even threw in a few come hither stares that probably had Selena Gomez forgetting about the Biebs’ pot smoking and supermodel canoodling moments. Cripes, at one point the guy looked like he was going to break down in tears.

Hmmm, I wonder what Selena REALLY thought after watching these performances.

Justin Bieber’s Valentine’s Day Message: SNL

justin-bieber

In perhaps in one of the more entertaining skits from Saturday Night Live last night, Justin Bieber delivers a Valentine’s Day message to his ladies. It’s all seductive, romantic and all things corny as only a pop star could deliver, until Taco joins the skit.

In the skit, the Biebs rolls around on a bed, inhales the scent of a bouquet of red roses and sexts Hillary Clinton.

Check out Justin Bieber’s Valentine’s Day message video below. I admit, I did get the giggles while watching this one…especially when Taco gets out his toilet.

Justin Bieber On SNL: Monologue (VIDEO)

justin-bieber

Justin Bieber not only was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live last night but he was also the host. I must admit this kid is starting to grow on me and he did make the show somewhat worth watching.

The opening monologue set the tone for the evening’s skits with the singer seducing AND educating the SNL audience and viewers. The Biebs took time to honor both Valentine’s Day AND Black History month, along with some help from cast member Kenan Thompson.

He did seemingly struggle a bit through the Black History facts (at least he did in my opinion), but it was hard to really tell if that was meant to happen in the scene or if he was supposed to be playing dumb. At any rate, it wasn’t completely horrid. After handing out roses to various girls in the audience, Bieber ended up taking home Whoopi Goldberg, who was there in the audience.

Check out Justin Bieber’s Opening Valentine’s Monologue below and let me know what you think in the comments section below.

Stay tuned as future posts we will have Bieber’s performances and a couple other of our favorite skits from last night’s show.

Under the leadership of Noel Lee, who is a true genius, the company has literally been changing the way people listen to music for over 30 years. They built an empire, and my job will be to push the envelope – turn the lights of the castle up really bright and help Monster take its next big step forward.
