Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift releases a new promotional single entitled 'Gorgeous'; yet another infectious pop tune that we will be singing forever, or at least until her next song comes out. Though it is markedly different from the other already released tracks from 'Reputation', it's just further evidence of her indomitable pop genius.

Taylor Swift leaving her New York apartmentTaylor Swift leaving her New York apartment

'Gorgeous' is an upbeat tune about being infatuated with a good-looking young man, despite being in a relationship with an older guy. 'I got a boyfriend, he's older than us / He's in the club doing I don't know what / You're so cool it makes me hate you so much', she sings, later adding: 'You make me so happy it turns back to sad / There's nothing I hate more than what I can't have.'

Fergie Taylor Swift

Even when you're sure to credit an artist for inspiring a song, you still end up with people accusing you of creative theft. Fergie fans have hit out at Taylor Swift for her song 'Look What You Made Me Do' over claims that it sounds much too similar to one of Fergie's own hits.

Taylor Swift

The old Taylor Swift may be dead but her previous hits are definitely not forgotten, particularly not by one songwriting duo who have accused the popstar of stealing their lyrics for her 2014 song 'Shake It Off'. There is certainly something uncanny about the similarities.

Taylor Swift at the CMA AwardsTaylor Swift at the CMA Awards

The 27-year-old might have done the honourable thing by crediting Right Said Fred for inspiring one of her newest singles 'Look What You Made Me Do', but Sean Hall and Nathan Butler are not happy that they never received credit for inspiring her 'Shake It Off' lyrics with their 2001 song 'Playas Gon' Play' recorded by the girl band 3LW.

During her appearance on 'Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen' last night (September 13th 2017), she was asked about whether she did indeed still have Taylor Swift's scarf in her drawer as the latter's lyrics to 'All Too Well' suggest; a song that was allegedly written about her brief relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal back in 2010.

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift has been widely praised for her testimony in court this week concerning allegations of sexual assault, with celebrities and publications noting how she dealt with being put on the stand in the civil trial in the court battle with ex-DJ David Mueller.

The 27 year old pop star launched a counter-suit in late 2015 after former country music DJ David Mueller sued her for claiming she fabricated allegations that he groped her backside during a photo op in 2013, which he says caused him to lose his $150k-per-year job at Denver-based KYGO-FM.

Testifying on Thursday (August 10th), Swift gave no grounds to Mueller’s lawyers whatsoever, according to reports from Billboard and multiple outlets.

Former DJ Accused Of Groping Taylor Swift Testifies In Court As Case Starts


Taylor Swift

A former radio DJ who was sacked when he was accused of groping Taylor Swift before a concert has testified in court today, claiming that he may have touched the pop star’s ribs with a closed hand when he tried to jump into a photo with her, but insisted that he did not touch her backside as Swift had claimed.

27 year old Swift accuses former disc jockey David Mueller of slipping his hand up her dress as they posed at a photo op backstage at one of her concerts back in June 2013 at Denver’s Pepsi Center. Her legal representative claimed in an opening statement at a civil trial in Denver, Colorado on Tuesday (August 8th) that Mueller had “grabbed her rear end”, according to local reports.

Mr Mueller sued the singer in September 2015, calling her allegation false and that she had cost him his $150k-per-year job as a host at country music station KYGO-FM. He is seeking $3 million in damages.

Taylor Swift Earns $400k In Two Weeks Since Return To Streaming


Taylor Swift

Most people would have thought that Taylor Swift’s return to Spotify was done just to troll her nemesis Katy Perry, but it actually seems to have been a savvy business move as well.

A new report indicates that the 27 year old pop star has earned just under $400,000 in the space of just a fortnight since her back catalogue came back to streaming services such as Spotify, Amazon Music and Pandora two weeks ago.

Much was made of the fact that Swift made the sudden decision to end her boycott of streaming services on the eve of her rival Katy Perry releasing her new record Witness on June 9th, but Billboard now claims that the two weeks since have seen TayTay earn $285,000 (£224,000) in streaming revenue and $59,000 (£46,000) in publishing royalties.

Lorde Apologises For Taylor Swift 'Autoimmune Disease' Comment


Lorde Taylor Swift

Lorde has apologised after comparing being friends with fellow pop star Taylor Swift as like being around someone with an autoimmune disease.

The 20 year old New Zealand-born singer, who has just released her second album Melodrama, made the rather strange remark in a profile interview with The Guardian at the weekend. Quickly, she received a backlash from Swift’s fanbase who criticised her for the comments that Lorde now admits were “insensitive” – but she said that she hadn’t been addressing Swift directly.

“It's like having a friend with very specific allergies,” she had told the British newspaper in an article published on Saturday (June 17th).

Taylor Swift has decided to end her long-standing boycott of streaming services, announcing that her back catalogue of albums will return to services such as Spotify.

Swift made the decision to pull her entire discography from streaming services back in late 2014, citing the deleterious effect she felt that the streaming model was having on the music industry. However, her reversal comes reportedly as a thank-you to her fans after her most recent album 1989 passed the 10 million sales mark.

Kanye West Taylor Swift

What is going on between Kanye West and Taylor Swift? We thought the pair had become buds since the notorious 2009 VMA incident, laughing off what had happened and even talking of working together. But now West has shaken things up again with a new song featuring explicit lyrics about her. 

Kanye WestKanye West says Swift is cool with his 'Famous' lyrics

While the rapper claims that he'd asked Swift's approval of the song and she gave him the go ahead, her rep has denied that any such conversation took place. And, let's be honest, it does seem unlikely that Swift would green light such a controversial song given her strong stance on feminism.
