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?

Remember when we reported that Jessica Hart was fired from Victoria’s Secret for Dissing Taylor Swift? Turns out, that’s not the case!
Media outlets alleged that Victoria’s Secret executives were super pissed that their Australian model said disparaging things about Miss Swift, and that she will not be walking next summer or appearing in any catalogs!
However, the lingerie brand insists the tabloid report is entirely FALSE and has issued a statement in Hart’s defense:
“There is no truth to the rumors that Jessica Hart has been fired or that she will no longer work with the brand,” Ed Razek, President and Chief Marketing Officer said in a statement. “As you will see, she was a great part of our show and we look forward to continuing to work with her. As previously reported, we at Victoria’s Secret and all those involved, including Jessica Hart, were thrilled to have Taylor be a part of the show. We look forward to sharing her performances next week during the television special.”
So, how did this whole thing get started? Well, during the show’s after party, Hart was approached by Women’s Wear Daily and shared her thoughts on Swift’s performance. And, she did. Honestly…
“I think, you know what, god bless her [Taylor Swift's] heart. I think she’s great,” she said. “But, I don’t know, to me, she didn’t fit. I don’t know if I should say that.”
Not so bad, right?

Jessica Hart is probably wishing she kept her mouth SHUT about Taylor Swift!
The Victoria’s Secret model has reportedly been “let go” from her plum Victoria’s Secret lingerie gig after saying some disparaging words about Miss Congeniality Taylor Swift during the VS Fashion show earlier in the month.
Although she later apologized and said that she loved Miss Tay Tay, it didn’t do her any good. According to sources, Jessica will not walk next year’s VS show and also won’t be in any more catalogs for the lingerie brand.
…Maybe she’s not getting any compassion because she misnamed a Taylor song in her apology? Yeah, that was…awkward. #Apologyfail. Do you think Jessica Hart’s “punishment” was too harsh, or do you think it was appropriate for a little celeb badmouthery?

Is Lamar Odom throwing in the towel on his tumultuous marriage with Khloe Kardashian?
Maybe. I mean, it’s been on and off again, and we’ve been hearing all about the star’s struggle with substance abuse. When TMZ asked Odom about Khloe on his way out of his 34th Birthday lunch…Lamar seemed…annoyed to say the least!
Lamar spent his birthday lunch at Casa Vega in the San Fernando Valley, a place Kim, Khloe and the rest of the Kardashian brood often go for good Mexican food.
Watch this video and see the look on Lamar’s face when he tries to deal with the Khloe question….and you tell ME whether this couple will stay together!
