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.”

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!

Everything You Need To Know About Adele’s New Album!

Screen Shot 2015-08-28 at 9.12.13 AM

Everybody’s been waiting for Adele’s new record since 2014…and we  might ACTUALLY be able to hear it soon!

The singer has been hinting at a follow-up to her 2011 blockbuster, 21  for more than a year but this Fall she’ll finally be able to make good on her promise of a November release on something NEW. So what’s the deal with the album? Here’s what we know…

According to Billboard, Danger Mouse has been working on the album, and Max Martin has contributed a single. Canadian singer-songwriter Tobias Jesso Jr. also has written a (reportedly, standout) track, and OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder is back in the mix after producing and co-writing “Rumour Has It” on 21. (Yeah, I know, a OneRepublic dude co-wrote Rumour Has it?! WEIIIIRRRDDDD)

Adele and her team are super silent about the whole thing, as obvi there’s a LOT of pressure surrounding its success. Her sophomore LP sold over 11 million copies and was the top-selling album of the year in both 2011 and 2012, SO, you KNOW.  In July, Ed Sheeran told the U.K.’s Capital FM, “I haven’t heard [Adele’s album], but everyone I know who’ve worked on it is just like, ‘Dude… that record!’ Apparently, it’s really good.”

(Via Billboard)

Yeah, DUH.

Are you excited for her new album?!?!
