Katy Perry Just Re-Ignited Her Taylor Swift Beef

Screen Shot 2016-06-22 at 12.34.01 PM

Katy Perry, you CRAZY.

In a savagely clever marketing move, the singer may have just re-ignited a four year-long feud with Taylor Swift by naming her new fragrance Mad Love. Sound familiar? YEAH. It’s an old Drew Barrymore movie from the 90’s but ALSO a line in Swiftie’s 2015 hit Bad Blood, which she is said to have co-written about the I Kissed A Girl singer.

In the hit song Bad Blood where Swift sings about a friendship gone awry, the chorus goes: ‘Cause baby, now we’ve got bad blood. You know it used to be mad love So take a look what you’ve done.”

That being said, Perry’s scent last year was named Mad Potion, so “Mad Love” is still pretty on-brand. Hmmmmm.

What do YOU think? Is Katy taking a jab at Swifty, or is this just a coincidence? Weigh in BELOW!

Blake Shelton’s New Album Is All KINDS Of Personal.

Miranda Lambert addresses Blake Shelton divorce rumors

Blake Shelton is getting honest…at least according to his new album, which is called If I’m Honest (very on the nose, dude).

The Voice coach has made no secret that his corny duet with girlfriend Gwen Stefani Go Ahead and Break My Heart celebrated their love story… but don’t get it twisted, he goes very Taylor Swift on this album, too.

On Monday, the singer opened up about his new album during the iHeartRadio album release show in LA. While he didn’t specifically name ex-wife Miranda Lambert as the inspiration of the song I Bet You Still Think About Me, Shelton went into the meaning behind the breakup track. He said:

“It’s basically what it sounds like. At some point whether you go through a divorce or a breakup or whatever, once you get past the anger and the frustration of it all, you kind of go into the sad part of it where it’s just like, ‘Gosh, how come that didn’t work out?’ And that’s what this song is about. Even though stuff didn’t work out, I bet you miss me a little bit. It’s a sad song.”

Ugh, egocentric much? Do you miss HER, Blake?

As for Shelton’s duet with Stefani, the 39-year-old said it was special because of “the honest way it came about” — as both had a need to write “about some serious insecurities that we had when we first started down this road with each other.” Such as….

“We both had trust issues. We were getting over it, but we wrote this song about it, and it’s perfect…There’s not a third ghost writer, there’s not five writers on it. It’s just she and I sat down and wrote this song … and I couldn’t be happier about [it].”

Ugh, I’ve never liked Blake Shelton, but I’m totally digging on how much he’s into himself and his relationships. The dude’s new album If I’m Honest in stores May 20, and while I won’t be buying one, I’ll be eagerly awaiting the backlash…

Taylor Swift Is Being All Weird And Trademark-Y. Ew.

Taylor Swift covers 'GQ'; Talks 'Bad Blood'

Don’t mess with Taylor Swift or her catchy little catch phrases/song titles.

I HATE when celebs think they own the English language, especially when they seem so good and nice and wholesome, which is exactly what Tay’s pulling these days. A report came out on Thursday that the pop princess is working on trademarking a whole slew of stuff like “blank space,” “and I’ll write your name,” “Swiftmas,” “a girl named girl,” and “1989.”

Yes, she wants to own A YEAR IN HISTORY.

If her application gets approved, no one else will be able to use those words on clothes, in performances, in books, or on other merchandise, which is a bummer, but at least there are some restrictions with 1989. According to PerezHilton, that trademark will only apply to a “stylized form” of the year. So like, nothing that looks like her album cover, essentially.

The 25-year-old also trademarked “this sick beat,” “nice to meet you, where you been,” and “party like it’s 1989″ earlier this year. So she has experience in being a lame-o.

What do you think of her trademark trigger finger?

Adele Admits It’s Hard Writing Songs When She’s Not Sad

More Celebs at The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards in LA

Depression and art go hand in hand, so says Adele!

In an interview with Matt Lauer on Monday’s Today show, the British singer gushed about motherhood, saying that she’s never been happier or healthier, which is good. The When We Were Young songstress also said that her 3-year-old son Angelo is her “emotional place,” explaining that he’s made her a more emotional person “in every single way possible.”

But for an artist like Adele, being fulfilled isn’t the best emotional state when churning out hits. The 27-year-old revealed that Angelo made her so happy that it caused problems when she was writing 25! She explained:

“I found it impossible for a while. I didn’t know what I wanted to write about. … What’s wrong is I wasn’t sad.”

On past records, her hits were all about being bummed out, but she decided to spin her usual MO on its head…

Hello is just about reconnecting with everyone else and myself. I couldn’t get over my guilt of leaving my kid to go and write a record and stuff like that. So [it’s] getting over that — getting on the other side of that. It was just, you know, it’s in general, just hello to everyone.”

(Via PerezHilton)

Well, OBVI Adele doesn’t need to be sad to write a killer song. Doesn’t matter what emotional state you’re in, you’re just crazy talented, girl!
