Taylor Swift Helps Her Fans Tackle Bullying

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Kind Acts,

Taylor SwiftTaylor Swift tries to help her fans tackle bullying.

The 23-year-old star - who was singled out and picked on at school in Pennsylvania - gives her biggest fans the chance to meet after her Red gigs and uses her platform as an artist to help them discuss inclusion issues they may face.

"After the show we pick fans randomly and they're brought backstage into this amazing tent called Club Red. I go in with about 35 to 40 fans and hear what's going on in their lives - whether someone's picking on them at school or if someone had a party and invited every single girl in the class but them. It happened to me, and that's why as an artist, you should try and help people one-on-one."

Taylor - who is on the Oceania leg of her world tour where she will be performing in New Zealand at the end of the month - previously took to the stage with former X Facto' contestant Cher Lloyd and Ellie Goulding during her US performances and she gushed about her time with them: "Ellie [Goulding] is so talented. I thought she was perfect. Cher Lloyd was amazing. It looked like we'd planned all kinds of moves but we were just moving on the same beats."

Taylor SwiftAn obsessed fan was arrested for swimming to Taylor Swift's beach home this morning. The 22-year-old man - who is yet to be named - attempted to swim to the "I Knew You Were Trouble" hitmaker's property in Rhode Island, New England, in a bid to meet the country singer but got freaked out by her security team and swam back in the opposite direction where he was detained by police for trespassing.

Police spotted the Chicago man getting out of the water around a mile from Taylor's new residence at 2:20am and upon questioning him, he reportedly admitted he intended to swim to shore, clamber up to the pop star's home and greet her. The man was hauled into a nearby police station and currently remains in custody.

"There is a zero tolerance policy for trespassers," Westerly Police Department told TMZ.

Taylor - who is currently in the middle of her Red Tour with Ed Sheeran - experienced a similar situation at her property in Nashville, Tennessee, last year when a deluded fan travelled from Winconsin to spend the day with her to celebrate her 23rd birthday. Jacob Kulke was detained by security at the Nashville residence until police arrived and arrested him. He did not face any formal charges.

Harry Styles and Taylor SwiftHarry Styles allegedly disses his brief relationship with Taylor Swift in One Direction's upcoming documentary.

The "Kiss You" singer - who split from the 23-year-old country music star in January after two months together - reportedly refers to their romance as a "pain in the a**e" and claims he hasn't dated anyone he wanted to have a serious relationship with since becoming famous.

According to the Daily Star Sunday newspaper, the 19-year-old British heartthrob admits in the band's documentary, "I haven't met a girl yet who I'd want to even think of getting serious with. I think I've been unlucky in love so far. But then, I haven't really met anyone who's made the earth move for me. I'm longing to meet someone who really inspires me and makes me really want to spend time with them."

Harry Styles Regrets Taylor Swift Romance

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Break-ups, Rumors,

Harry StylesHarry Styles regrets dating Taylor Swift.

The One Direction heartthrob - who enjoyed a two month romance with the country singer late last year - reportedly told friends that he wishes he never went out with the 23-year-old star after she took a swipe at him in her new music video 22.

A source close to the 19-year-old British boy band member told RadarOnline.com, "Harry might have taken Taylor's swipes with an air of grace, but he now wishes he never ever dated her. I mean, the fact she's aiming a jab at him in the 22 video has got Harry wondering what's coming next! He just doesn't know what to expect. It wasn't the most amicable of splits, but Harry said all along that he wanted to take things slow and easy with Taylor. There was certainly no commitment made, despite Taylor's protestations and the fact that they were so busy with their careers and lived in different countries meant that it could never have really got that serious. What for Harry was 'a bit of fun' at the time has slowly turned into a personal nightmare. But he won't stoop to Taylor's level, he's just going to continue to be the more grown-up person and get on with his life. Perhaps something Taylor should consider too."

Amy Poehler Sorry for Upsetting Taylor Swift

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Television, Dating, Rivalries,

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting the Golden GlobesAmy Poehler has apologized to Taylor Swift for mocking her love life. The Parks And Recreation star insists she and good pal Tina Fey didn't mean to upset the country singer, who is renowned for dating a string of Hollywood stars, by warning her to "stay away from Michael J. Fox's son" and advised her to take "some me time" while presenting the Golden Globes in January after Taylor said she is going to "hell" for the comments.

"Aw, I feel bad if she was upset. I am a feminist, and she is a young and talented girl. That being said, I do agree I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff," the 41-year-old comedian told The Hollywood Reporter.

In a new interview with Vanity Fair magazine, the 23-year-old singer admitted she wasn't impressed with the jokes at her expense: "You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people, because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved, that said, 'There's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women.'"

Taylor Swift Comments on Media Coverage of Her Love Life

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Music, Dating, Features, Rumors,

Taylor SwiftThough the tabloids have pounced on every shred of a news involving Taylor Swift's current dating status for years now, the 23 year-old singer has broken her silence to set the record straight.

"You know, if you want some big revelation, since 2010 I have dated exactly two people," Swift claimed in a recent interview with Vanity Fair. "The fact that there are slideshows of a dozen guys that I either hugged on a red carpet or met for lunch or wrote a song with ... it's just kind of ridiculous."

When the question of her supposed involvements with stars like Harry Styles, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Taylor Lautner were brought up, the country popstar had even more to say:

"For a female to write about her feelings, and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her, I think that's taking something that potentially should be celebrated – a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way – that's taking it and turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist."

Taylor Swift: ‘I Don’t Have a Type’

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Dating, Features,

Taylor SwiftTaylor Swift doesn't have a specific type.

The 23-year-old singer has dated a host of celebrities including Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas, Harry Styles and John Mayer but Taylor says she doesn't know what attracts her to certain men. "I don't really think too hard about what people think or why you should like someone. I think in 20s we're just like, 'Oh, I'll try hanging out with him' or 'I'll try being single.' You're kind of all over the place. We're crazy. We're in our 20s," she said.

Taylor also revealed she wrote the song "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" - which is widely believed to be about her relationship with End of Watch star Jake - to remind herself not to take him back. "Once a relationship's done, it's done. I think that ["We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together"] kinda says it. Maybe I wrote that song so I would never get back in that relationship. Because once you write that about it, there's no way you're getting back together," she explained.

Taylor and Harry are expected to seal their reunion at the NRJ Music Awards in Cannes this Sunday - where One Direction are nominated for International Group of the Year - and a source revealed the blonde beauty wants "no expense to be spared" when she whisks Harry away. "The lads are planning to hang out together enjoying Cannes - and they also want to get to Paris. But Taylor is desperately trying to make arrangements for her and Harry to slip away and have private romantic time. She has got a boat on standby ready for them to sneak off. Taylor thought a boat would be the perfect getaway as photographers can't follow them," an insider said.

Taylor Swift and Harry Styles Getting Back Together

Taylor Swift and Harry StylesTaylor Swift and Harry Styles are getting back together.

The former couple - who split earlier this month following an argument during their new year holiday in the Caribbean - have patched up their differences following showdown talks in London, and they will reportedly seal their reunion at the NRJ Music Awards in Cannes, France, this weekend.

"Taylor realized she was being a bit full-on. She is now more relaxed about their relationship. She intends to enjoy it more rather than worry about where it could eventually lead. Harry is not the sort of guy you can stay mad at for long. She's given him some space and it's done them both a world of good. What happened over New Year is now a distant memory," a source told The Sun.

Harry, 18, is said to be planning a number of romantic gestures for the "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" hitmaker in Cannes, where they will stay in the same hotel.

Lisa Osbourne's tweets

While we all are entitled to freedom of speech, Jack Osbourne's wife Lisa is exercising it quite boisterously online - in an effort to talk about Taylor Swift's love life. The actress - who wed Jack in October after having dated for over a year - took to Twitter to call the 23 year-old singer "bats*** crazy" over her short-lived romances.

Swift - who has famously dated older men like John Mayer and Jake Gyllenhaal as well as guys younger than her like Taylor Lautner and Connor Kennedy - recently broke up with One Direction's Harry Styles, after a two-month relationship. While it's clear that Taylor loves being in love, has anyone really made this much of a fuss about how much of a serial dater Ryan Reynolds is (after all, he married Scarlett Johansson and Blake Lively after a year of dating them)? Or how about Joe Jonas?
