Taylor Swift might be done writing about herself…for the time being!
“I’m really loving collaboration right now,” Swift told Billboard during a quick stop in Los Angeles to support her song “Sweeter Than Fiction” from the film “One Chance..”
“I see it as a bit of an apprenticeship. I want to be around people who love writing songs and have done it for years. Every time I’m in a studio I’m learning, like how to build a drum track, and getting a new perspective on things. It’s so thrilling to keep learning on your fifth album.
“As soon as (an album) comes out I’m figuring out what the next one will be. It’s gotten to the point where each one is a reinvention, which is what I like best. I like it when it sounds new and people don’t know where you’re going to go next.”
In case you didn’t know, “Sweeter Than Fiction,” her end-credits song for the story about “Britain’s Got Talent” winner Paul Potts, received a Golden Globe nomination on Dec. 12; she is also up for four Grammys. Sounds like doing songs about OTHER people has its perks, no?
“It can get pretty intense writing (personal) details — that’s a very vulnerable place to put yourself in. But there’s a specific type of thrill you get from that recounting of your life. There’s a different kind of thrill you get hoping you have accurately portrayed someone else’s emotions that you’re seeing so well done by these actors, James Corden and Mackenzie Crook. The actors did such a great job it was fairly easy to get inside their heads.”
What do you think of Taylor’s new mode of songwriting?

Britney Spears looks tired, most likely because she’s hard at work recording her new album!
Photographers caught a glimpse of Miss Spears exiting an LA studio today in sweatpants and a long sweater. She’s been in high gear working on her new album, which I’m definitely curious to hear. Again, I’m glad Britney is putting her nose to the grindstone, but sweatpants? Have we all given up, or is it kinda endearing? THOUGHTS?

Get some thicker skin, Taylor Swift!
After Golden Globes co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler gently mocked the singer’s surprisingly serious reaction to their joke about her love life, Chelsea Handler added her two cents during a March 5 appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live.
“I think that was a bold statement, but I’m not on anyone’s side because I just don’t care enough,” the 38-year-old Chelsea Lately host said. “I like that she’s being that vociferous about something that she thinks they were out to get her. They were clearly making a joke just about her demeanor, which is embarrassing. I mean, she’s just dated so many men.”
I mean, she hasn’t dated THAT many, but it’s so in the spotlight, right? Handler goes on to say…
“My theory about Taylor Swift is that she’s a virgin, that everyone breaks up with her because they date her for two weeks and she’s like, ‘I’m not gonna do it.’ And they’re like, ‘Oh, well, forget it. Then I don’t want to date you,’” Handler imagined. “Every guy thinks they’re going to devirginize her, and they’re not. She’s never going to get devirginized, ever, ever, ever, ever.”
Well, let’s give a little more credit to the dudes that dated Tay Tay, right? Still, how far from the truth do you think this is?! Hard to say…

Looks like Harry Styles has his sights set on a new young sensation, Jennifer Lawrenc, after watching her Oscars speech last Sunday! The One Direction singer, 19, has set his sights on the 22-year-old actress and is putting the word out so she’ll know he wants her as his new girlfriend!
oh, boy. Says a source from the Daily Star:
“Harry likes goofy girls and thinks it’s hilarious that she fell over as she went to accept her award for Best Actress. And obviously, like most men, he thinks she’s drop-dead gorgeous. He’s been begging mutual friends who know Jen to put the word out for him so they can hook up next time they’re in the same city. Harry is quietly confident because he normally gets whichever girl he sets his sights on. He’s even put the word out to friends to let Jen know he’s after her and reckons he’ll succeed.”
Liking “goofy girls?” Hilarious that she fell over? Ugh, Harry Styles sounds terrible, and yeah, I’m not forgetting that overly confident last part, either. Our JLaw deserves so much better!
