Taylor Swift Answer’s Vogue’s 73 Questions!

Screen Shot 2016-04-14 at 11.18.22 AM

Haven’t had your fill of Taylor Swift?

The girl looks drastically different on the cover of Vogue, but in addition, the magazine put out their latest installment of Vogue’s 73 Questions video series. Now clearly, this was taken a while back (note the non-platinum non-bob), but it’s still pretty cute. And, you creepers can see inside of Tay’s house! JOY.

In the vid, she reveals which songs from her last album, “1989”, were the hardest to write and what type of junk food she’d love to feast on if “calories didn’t count:”

“I mean, if we’re just saying what I wish I could eat everyday if calories didn’t count is chicken tenders,” the “Blank Space” singer hilariously reveals in the clip.

And what would be her go-to order at a drive-through? “Um, cheeseburger, fries [and] a chocolate shake,” she confesses.

Swift also says her favorite TV show is “Friends,” her favorite movie is “Love Actually” and she still has “insecurities” from her childhood.

When asked to give some words of wisdom (or warning) to her younger self, she adds, “You’re gonna date just like a normal 20 something should be allowed to, but you’re gonna be a national lightning rod for slut shaming.”

OOF! Pretty real. That being said, it’s true. Check out the video BELOW!

You Will Not Recognize Taylor Swift In These New VOGUE Photos

Screen Shot 2016-04-14 at 11.18.22 AM

Like, for REAL.

Taylor Swift looks more like a post-punk Michelle Williams in these photos than the Tay we know and love, and you know? I like it. It’s a change from her not-so-edgy, 50’s retro style that she’s had since she sold out as a country star. I’m sure Anna Wintour was like, “wanna co-host the Met Ball? Time for a bleachin.” Again, I think it’s good. In any case, she’s on the cover of May Vogue talking about Calvin Harris, the splits and writing music. You can read the full piece here. Some highlights:

Her future plans: “I have no idea. This is the first time in ten years that I haven’t known. I just decided that after the past year, with all of the unbelievable things that happened…I decided I was going to live my life a little bit without the pressure on myself to create something.”

She’ll never give up music: “I’m always going to be writing songs. The thing is, with me, I could very well come up with three things in the next two weeks and then jump back into the studio, and all of a sudden the next record is started. That’s an option, too.”

But she wants a more well-rounded life: “I would really like to take a little time to learn things…I want to be a well-rounded person who can make a good drink…to be able to save somebody if they’re drowning…I do things like this… I got it in my head that I couldn’t do a split, and I was really upset about it. And so I stretched every single day for a year until I could do a split. Somehow I feel better knowing that I can.”

Her relationship with Calvin Harris/Adam Wiles: “I’m just taking things as they come. I’m in a magical relationship right now. And of course I want it to be ours, and low-key…this is the one thing that’s been mine about my personal life.”

On the Kanye West drama in February: “I think the world is so bored with the saga. I don’t want to add anything to it, because then there’s just more.”

On the men in her life: “You know, I went out on a normal amount of dates in my early 20s, and I got absolutely slaughtered for it. And it took a lot of hard work and altering my decision-making. I didn’t date for two and a half years. Should I have had to do that? No. I guess what I wanted to call attention to in my speech at the Grammys was how it’s going to be difficult if you’re a woman who wants to achieve something in her life—no matter what.”

Whether her girl-squad is actually a bad thing: “Ugh. I’ve had people say really hurtful things about me, and so I’ve kind of learned how to gauge it: ‘This is, like, low-to-medium-level hurtful.’ There are a lot of really easy ways to dispel rumors. If they say you are pregnant, all you have to do is continue to not be pregnant and not have a baby. If the rumor is that you have fake friendships, all you have to do is continue to be there for each other. And when we’re all friends in fifteen years and raising our kids together, maybe somebody will look back and go, ‘That was kind of ridiculous what we said about Taylor and her friends.’”

So happy to see she isn’t engaging with Kanye West in any way. It feels like she’s maturing, no?

Gigi Hadid And Zayn Malik Did A Cheesy Couples Vogue Editorial



Vogue sent Mario Testino, Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik to Naples to shoot an editorial for the May issue (on newsstands on April 26th) all about gingham/plaid. And while I know Vogue has a job to do and these two look pretty hot together…I gotta say, is there a more creative way to showcase that love and that plaid than the typical sightseeer/motorbike/romance type pics? It’s Mario Testino, for god sakes.  You can see the full slideshow here.

What do YOU think of these pics? WEIGH IN BELOW!

Rihanna Talks Beyonce Beef And Being The Face of Dior


Rihanna‘s back!

The girl’s on the cover of both Vogue USA and  Vogue UK’s April cover, which is weird because rumor has it Anna Wintour doesn’t want to be the second Vogue cover, especially if it’s the same month! But Wintour loves Rihanna and probably is down to give Riri the buzz she needs surrounding ANTI, which…I guess some people like but I think is meh. And she doesn’t really get into the album, but moreso talks about buzz sounding…other things. Here are here are some highlights:

Preparing for her tour: “I am probably going to have like four days of tour rehearsal in total, which is Freaking. Me. Out. My schedule is so crazy right now.”

Her schedule is why she’s single: “It’s definitely going to be a challenge when I do decide to pursue a relationship…but I have hope!”

After her 2013 tour, she took a break: “I wanted a year to just do whatever I want artistically, creatively. I lasted a week.” The paparazzi got a picture of her going into the studio, “and my fans were like, ‘Oh yes! We’s droppin’ a single.’” From that moment, she says, the Navy was expecting an album. It would be another two years.

Reinventing the pop-music wheel: “I just gravitated toward the songs that were honest to where I am now… It might not be some automatic record that will be Top 40. But I felt like I earned the right to do that now.”

Whether she has a beef with Beyonce or “Formation”: “Here’s the deal. They just get so excited to feast on something that’s negative. Something that’s competitive. Something that’s, you know, a rivalry. And that’s just not what I wake up to. Because I can only do me. And nobody else is going to be able to do that.”

Going sheer to the CFDAs in 2014: “I just liked it better without the lines underneath. Could you imagine the CFDA dress with a bra? I would slice my throat. I already wanted to, for wearing a thong that wasn’t bedazzled. That’s the only regret I have in my life.” Wearing a thong that wasn’t bedazzled is your greatest regret in life? “To the CFDA Awards. Yes.”

Becoming the first black woman to represent Dior: “I was already proud to be a Dior woman, but to be a black Dior woman and the first: It did something else for me.”

Unisex clothes & feminism: “I always wanted to do what my brothers were doing. I always wanted to play the games they played and play rough and wear pants and go outside. Women feel empowered when they can do the things that are supposed to be only for men, you know? It breaks boundaries, it’s liberating, and it’s empowering when you feel like, Well, I can do that, too.”

(Vogue Via Celebitchy)

The interview is split up between cities and weeks in LA and NYC, which is kind of interesting, and the interviewer notes that Riri was “sipping Pinot Grigio from Dixie cups” which is amazing.

What do YOU think of her take on Formation, though?! Do you think this beef is REAL?!
