    BATON ROUGE, LA. Crossover pop icon Taylor Swift has donated $1 million to help Louisiana flooding victims, who have been suffering from Hurricane Katrina-like flooding in the states capital of Baton Rouge and neighboring parishes. We began The 1989 World Tour in Louisiana, and the wonderful fans there made us feel completely at home, Swift told CNN in a statement. The fact that so many people in Louisiana have been forced out of their own homes this week is heartbreaking. I encourage those who can to help out and send your love and prayers their way during this devastating...

    If Taylor Swift ever believed she had bad blood before, boy does she have it now. Over her birthday weekend, the young queen of pop watched a bomb with her name on it explode after the famed feminist critic Camille Paglia published a shockingly scathing attack on Swift, calling her a blond, elitist “Nazi Barbie.” Yes, such a cheap and sensationalist shot at a fellow female comes from one of America’s most well-known and respected feminist writers. Paglia is a self-proclaimed “notorious Amazon feminist” and isn’t exactly your stereotypical bra-burning, Birkenstock-wearing feminist. Her ideology is as nuanced as her interpretation...

    Over her birthday weekend, the young queen of pop watched a bomb with her name on it explode after the famed feminist critic Camille Paglia published a shockingly scathing attack on Swift, calling her a blonde, elitist “Nazi Barbie.” Swift is a feminist’s dream mostly come true. She is young, smart, self-made, mind-bogglingly successful, in charge, and fiercely independent, both in business and in her personal life; she is unmarried and runs her personal brand with an I-make-my-own-decisions attitude. Swift has power, control, and command of her life, all the things today’s young women are told to pursue.

    Taylor Swift's latest music video is being battered by critics who claim it is racist and pandering to 'rich white fantasies' from a colonial era. The video for Wildest Dreams, which was revealed during the MTV VMA Awards coverage on Sunday, has a mainly white cast and revolves around two 1950s-era movie stars - played by Swift and Gran Torino actor Scott Eastwood - filming in Africa. There are only two black actors, who play soldiers, and they appear in the background. The mock film crew are white. Director Joseph Khan insists the video is a 'love story' and has...

Apple Music will launch with a 3 month free trial for any person signing up to it. The problem is, Apple had decided and agreed with the largest music publishers that no royalties would be paid on songs played during this free trial period. Many artists were angry about this.

    I can feel the blood pumping through my face a little harder and I know that if I were to look in the mirror there would probably be red, splotchy marks on my neck, because thats typically my personal involuntary response when I get really irritated, frustrated and angry. It doesnt happen as often these days, perhaps because with what I do now, I see the entire gamut almost on a daily basis. Sadly, not much manages to surprise me anymore. The world is wicked, weve lost common sense and stupid people are allowed the same freedom of speech as...

    Kanye West has apologised to Taylor Swift for ruining her 2009 Video Music Awards (VMAs) acceptance speech. The rapper wrote on Twitter: 'I'm sorry, Taylor. We're both artists, and the media and managers are trying to get between us. 'She deserves the apology more than anyone. She had no idea what hit her. She's just a lil girl with dreams like the rest of us. Taylor and her family friends and fans definitely didn't want or need that.' West went on to discuss the backlash he had faced following his behaviour at the VMAs. 'There are people who don't dislike...

    Vegas went Country or Country went Vegas as the 45th Annual ACM (Academy of Country Music) Awards were held Sunday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Hosted by the affable Reba McEntire, our fave Taylor Swift, who performed an eye-catching performance of Change was surprisingly shut out of the awards with Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood dominating the proceedings. It was truly a Country night for the Ladies. We liked the 2010 ACM Awards Red Carpet as Country went glamorous, chic and stylish as well as Vegas. The stars of Country Music and the many-fold Celebs...

  • Taylor Swift Gives Big as She Turns 20 ($250,000 to schools--a lib?)

    The biggest gift came from Swift herself. The singer has donated $250,000 to schools around the country that she's either attended or worked with. The money will pay teachers' salaries as well as buy books and fund various educational programs. "Something I wanted to do at the end of this amazing year and especially on my birthday was give back to something I really believe in, which is education," says Swift. "The schools that I went to and the amazing people I got to learn from really turned me into who I am, and I wanted to give back."
  • Add to favorites The cattiness begins: Wynonna Judd thinks Swift victory 'too soon'

    Seems there's a little Bitter Betty in the air following Taylor Swift's CMA victory. Wynonna Judd is doing the slow clap to Swift's win. Judd was quoted saying "You want my honest comment? It's too much too soon." She goes on to berate the way success is a corporate decision now, instead of the result of hard work, putting in the time, and relentless energy. "There was a making of a star, there was a rising up and the fans went with it's over coffee breaks."
