Victoria’s Secret Model Jessica Hart: Taylor Swift Didn’t Fit In

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, Fashion Shows, Models,

Taylor Swift and Lily AldridgeTaylor Swift “didn't fit in” on the Victoria's Secret catwalk, according to model Jessica Hart.

The 23-year-old singer performed at the annual fashion show in New York on Wednesday, but Australian lingerie model Jessica wasn't impressed by her on the runway. When asked if the leggy “I Knew You Were Trouble” star could pull it off as a Victoria's Secret model, Jessica replied bluntly, “No.” Speaking to Women's Wear Daily at the after show party, she said, “I think, you know what, God bless her heart. I think she's great. But I don't know, to me, she didn't fit. I don't know if I should say that. I think what you find is that for a lot of us, we've been working for 14, 15 years, what it takes to make it here comes from experience and confidence and knowing how to be confident with yourself. I think it comes with age. It's definitely the benchmark of all jobs.”

Taylor Swift Looks for London Home

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Rumors,

Taylor SwiftTaylor Swift is hunting for a new home in London.

The “Everything Has Changed” singer is tired of staying in hotels and wants a place of her own for when she visits the UK capital or comes to Europe. “Taylor isn't moving to London permanently but she wants a European base and she absolutely loves it in Britain. She's been spending more and more time here recently and is tired of camping out in hotels. This way she can make a place her own and get some proper privacy,” a source said.

The 22-year-old musician, who is said to be worth over $220 million, paid $11 million in cash for her mansion in Rhode Island, New England, last year. The impressive property has five bedrooms and was Taylor's fourth home. It sits in front of 700 ft of waterfront and encompasses more than 11,000 sq ft of living space, sitting on five acres of land.

Taylor - who kicked off the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show wearing a Union flag-print mini-dress in New York on Wednesday - is set to spend more time in London next year after announcing five dates at The O2 next February as part of her ongoing Red Tour.

Taylor Swift Helps Her Fans Tackle Bullying

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 Swift Pens Tracks for Next Album

Taylor SwiftTaylor Swift has already written songs for her next album.

The 23-year-old singer is currently promoting her Red studio album, but she admits she has been penning tracks for her next collection, which she hopes will be different from anything she has done before:

“Now that I've written a lot of songs for the next album, I'm dying for people to hear it. It's so weird to be still promoting Red and I'm so proud of Red and I'm creating something that's so different from Red.”

However, the “Everything Has Changed” hitmaker believes the success of Red will encourage her to work harder, but she doesn't want it to follow along the same lines with the same tunes. “It's so cool because I'm so appreciative of the success of Red but I know that if I want to have success with something else I can't make Red 2.0. I have to make something completely new and something that if you were to hear a song from it you'd go 'Oh that's not from Red, that's from the new one.' So that's what I'm doing,” she explained.


Taylor Swift Excited About Royal Performance

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Performances, Country, Pop,

Taylor SwiftTaylor Swift feels “honored” to have been asked to perform for Prince William and Duchess Catherine next month.

The superstar is one of several acts - along with Bon Jovi, James Blunt and Eliza Doolittle - set to play at the royal couple's Winter Whites Gala in London's Royal Albert Hall on December 8, in aid of homeless charity Centerpoint, and she is thrilled to have been asked.

“I'm really excited, I'm going to be playing the Winter Whites Gala, I'm really stoked, it's the first royal engagement I've done and I feel very honored,” she said in an interview.

And the “I Knew You Were Trouble” hitmaker is already thinking about what to say and do if she gets the opportunity to meet the royal couple at the event, but she isn't getting her hopes up: “I've been asking about that [etiquette], I think I'm safe if I just shake hands and be polite. I think it's presumptuous to assume I'll meet them, so first I'm going to be polite enough to not assume I'll meet them.”

Taylor Swift’s New Songs to Set the Record Straight

Taylor SwiftTaylor Swift wants to set the record straight about her love life in her new songs.

The country singer is back in the studio writing new tracks about her short-lived romance with One Direction womanizer Harry Styles and is determined to tell people “what really happened” between them.

“When I'm writing songs, it's the only opportunity for my fans to hear what really happened. I'm in control of my life!” she told The Daily Mail. Taylor is famed for putting her failed romances with the likes of John Mayer and Jake Gyllenhaal in song, and teen heartthrob Harry is also expected to get the break-up anthem treatment after their bitter split earlier this year.

The 23-year-old musician is heading back to Nashville, Tennessee, to pen tracks for her fifth album and is prepared for an intense period of intensive songwriting: “This is the time where I start to really go into the studio non-stop and spend all my time writing songs. I scour my brain for every possible metaphor and analogy I can use to describe my life and emotions.”
