Taylor Swift Reported to Be House-Hunting in NYC

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music,

Taylor SwiftTaylor Swift is reportedly looking for a new home in New York City.

The “Red” singer has been viewing apartments in Greenwich Village in the hopes of finding a new pad, the New York Daily News Confidenti@l column is reporting.

Money is clearly no object for the 24-year-old star, who visited a $12 million Leroy St. townhouse that was once the home of West Side Story writer Arthur Laurents, with a mystery man by her side. “She was well dressed and seemed in good spirits. She was being driven around with this good-looking guy who looked about her age,” an eyewitness said.

The impressive 1850s four-bedroom redbrick property spans over 4,400 square feet and is a stone's throw away from Hollywood heavyweight Robert De Niro's pad.

Joe Jonas: Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato Introduced Me to Weed

Joe Jonas and Miley CyrusJoe Jonas has claimed Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato encouraged him to try marijuana.

The squeaky clean star has said his fellow Disney Channel stars - who are both three years younger than him - pressured him into smoking a joint when they were teenagers. “The first time I smoked weed was with Demi and Miley. I must have been 17 or 18. They kept saying, 'Try it! Try it!' so I gave it a shot, and it was all right. I don't even smoke weed that often anymore,” Joe, 24, told Vulture.

The singer also opened up about his rocky relationship with Demi, claiming the X Factor judge - who went to rehab for “physical and emotional issues” in 2010 - was actually struggling with full-blown “drug abuse” and he only stayed with her because he wanted to help her. “I really got to know her and got to see the ins and outs of what she was struggling with, like drug abuse. I felt like I needed to take care of her, but at the same time I was living a lie, because I wasn't happy but felt like I had to stay in it for her, because she needed help. I couldn't express any of that, of course, because I had a brand to protect,” he recalled.

Taylor Swift, Bon Jovi, and Prince William

Is Prince William our next big rock star? A video documenting the royal's trio act with Taylor Swift and Bon Jovi (seen after the jump!) performing “Livin' on a Prayer” might convince you if you're actually having a hard time imagining it.

Swift and Bon Jovi were present at the UK's Winter Whites Gala held at Kensington Palace for a fundraiser in aid of the Centerpoint charity. Although Swift performed a song about palaces and princes in a palace with a prince - “Love Story” - folks in attendance were in for a huge surprise when Bon Jovi took the stage, encouraging the British royals' newest father to join him on stage. At first hesitant, Prince William hinted that he'd only agree if Swift would join in - to which she easily obliged (who wouldn't get the opportunity to sing alongside a real-life prince and a living musical legend?).

‘Forbes’ Names Madonna Highest-Paid Musician

MadonnaMadonna has topped Forbes' list of highest-paid musicians.

The 55-year-old singer is still the queen of pop according to the magazine, earning $125 million from June 2012 to May 2013 thanks to her sell-out MDMA Tour, miles ahead of her nearest rival Lady Gaga, who raked in $80 million. Rockers Bon Jovi and country singer Toby Keith were next, with Coldplay coming in fifth place.

Despite lackluster sales of her latest album, Madonna made her fortune from fans paying $100 a ticket to see her tour - which grossed $305 million - as well as from merchandise sales, a clothing line, fragrance and investments in companies like Vita Coco. This comes as little surprise, since Madonna had already been crowned the world's highest-earning celebrity by Forbes in August, with filmmaker Steven Spielberg, author E.L. James, radio personality Howard Stern and X Factor boss Simon Cowell rounding out the top five.

However, the magazine estimates Lady Gaga could easily top the highest-paid musicians list next year because her current earnings were affected by her hip injury, which forced her to cut her Born This Way Ball tour short. Had she completed the tour, she could potentially have made $200 million.

Quote of the Day: Taylor Swift on Songwriting, Exes

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Gossip, Rumors, Country, Pop, New Releases,

Taylor Swift

“I only write songs about crazy love. If I go on two dates with a guy and we don't click, I'm not writing a song about that. It didn't matter in the emotional grand scheme of things. There's a lot that goes on in daily life that isn't really worth turning into a verse and a chorus… I heard from the guy that most of Red is about. He was like, 'I just listened to the album, and that was a really bittersweet experience for me. It was like going through a photo album.' That was nice.”

- Taylor Swift reveals that she doesn't write a song about every guy she hooks up with, which is what apparently most folks believed. (Shocker!)
