Taylor Swift: Armed Stalker Arrested Trying to Break In!

Last week, a man obsessed with Taylor Swift robbed a bank and tried to propose marriage to her. It didn’t work out the way that he’d planned.

This new stalker and new incident, however, are much more alarming.

A man has been arrested after allegedly trying to break into Taylor’s home. He was masked, he wore gloves, and he was in possession of ammunition, a knife, and rope.

TMZ reports that a stalker was arrested at Taylor Swift’s Beverly Hills mansion while trying to break in.

The man, 38-year-old Julius Sandrock, had apparently traveled all the way from Colorado to attempt this.

While it might be easy to dismiss as a harebrained scheme that was doomed to fail from the start, there are some alarming details.

Security spotted a suspicious man and called the police.

Police arrested Sandrock for felony stalking after searching his person and his vehicle.

What they found during their search had them seriously concerned for Taylor’s safety and about the stalker’s intentions.

Taylor’s most recent stalker told police that he had thrown stolen money over a fence in a ludicrous effort to impress her.

Julius Sandrock brought … other things.

When police found Sandrock, he was wearing rubber gloves and a mask.

It was the supplies that he had stashed in his car that makes this story so scary.

In his car, police allegedly found an empty gun holster, live rounds of ammunition, latex gloves, black gloves, a knife, various masks, black rope, prescription medication, and “psychologist paperwork.”

Based upon what they had found and after Sandrock admitted to them that he owns multiple firearms, police sought and were granted a temporary firearms restraining order against him.

According to court documents acquired by the New York Daily News, Sandrock was released from police custody on Tuesday.

Court documents reveal that Sandrock has struggled with his mental health.

“Respondent told arresting officers that he suffers from severe depression, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, and manic episodes.”

The medications found in his vehicle were oxycodone and the anti-depressant fluoxetine. The latter is better known as Prozac.

It is not immediately clear if the powerful painkiller medication oxycodone is something that Sandrock should have been taking or if it was intended for Taylor.

Sandrock is already on probation for disorderly conduct and discharging a firearm in Colorado.

He has a follow-up court appearance to extend the restraining order on May 9.

We know that some may feel tempted to laugh at this series of events.

Taylor wasn’t hurt, or even there.

The idea of multiple men who are fixated on her traveling across state lines while on ill-fated missions to meet her is farcical. Particularly given that she was not at either home at the time.

And then you have the reminder that Taylor Swift owns many, many homes. 

Some fans are reminded of stories of paranoid dictators and crime lords who quietly move between residences because they fear assassination.

But Taylor isn’t a dictator (though she’d be a great one) and she isn’t a crime lord. She’s a young woman who shares her music to bring joy to millions of fans.

She doesn’t deserve to be endangered, and stalkers are dangerous.

Taylor had a bank-robber throw money at her Rhode Island home last week.

This week, a many carrying worrisome paraphernalia was arrested attempting to break into her Beverly Hills home.

Additionally, Taylor’s security had to call the police when a man named Justin Lilly apparently refused to leave her Beverly Hills property.

Lilly’s actions may have been incidental rather than targeted at Taylor, as he is believed to be homeless.

Regardless, this has to be scary. We hope that Taylor is safe and secure … at whichever house she is currently inhabiting.

Taylor Swift: Crazed Man Robs Bank in Effort to Impress Her

It’s been about a month since Taylor Swift released her latest music video, but plenty of fans are still hooked on her music and still love her. Some love her too much.

One Connecticut man was determined to impress Taylor that he allegedly robbed a bank so that he could use the cash to win her over.

His mad shceme to propose to her did not work, and police took him into custody.

Bruce Rowley Mugshot

We’re not saying that there’s any one right way to do a proposal, but … it does help your odds of getting a “yes” if the other person knows who you are.

But that didn’t deter Bruce Rowley of Derby, Connecticut from trying to propose to Taylor Swift.

The proposal that police say that he had concocted — which we suppose was also to be his meet cute with Taylor — involved him driving 60 miles to her Rhode Island home and throwing fistfulls of money over her fence.

Rowley got the money, which authorities say totaled roughly $ 1,600, after having robbed a bank.

Specifically, Rowley is accused of robbing a Webser bank in Ansonia.

Ansonia Police spokesman Lt. Patrick Lynch explains Rowley’s bizarre motive and how is alleged crime connects to Taylor Swift.

“It seemed he wanted to propose to her.”

But alas, what would surely have otherwise been a perfect marriage proposal ran across a little hitch.

“But she wasn’t home when he went there. He said he threw some of the money over a fence to impress her.”

As it turns out, he explained it all to police after they pursued his car into Connecticut for the alleged bank robbery.

“We didn’t know about Taylor Swift until our officers picked him up from state police to drive him back to Ansonia. He began to talk all about it in the cruiser.”

When a suspect begins to talk about their crime and motive without any provocation, it’s generally known as an “excited utterance,” which is considered admissible in court.

Rowley is charged with second-degree robbery and fourth-degree larceny.

Bruce Rowley

There are a number of funny elements to this story, but overall, it’s scary.

We’re talking about a stalker. There are, in general, two forms of stalking. One takes the form of a lover or an ex or acquaintance who harasses a person. This particularly manifests as an abuser tracking down his victim because he cannot allow himself to lose control.

The other type is where someone has imagined an elaborate relationship with someone, often a celebrity, so vividly that they imagine that the celebrity feels the same way about them.

They may interpret tweets or offhanded statements in interviews as coded messages for them. It may have all gotten started with what they perceived to be eye contact during a concert.

Remember when President Reagan was shot? Whatever one may feel about him and his political legacy, that was a scary event.

The man who fired the shot was not in his right mind — he believed that he was trying to impress Jodie Foster.

We’re just lucky that Rowley’s delusion did not lead him to shoot anyone.

This mad scheme to propose to her was doomed from the start by so many things.

Taylor Swift, of course, is already happily in a relationship with Joe Alwyn.

We cannot imagine that Taylor, whose net worth is reportedly somewhere in the ballpark of $ 300 million, is going to be lured by anyone with any amount of money.

(Because she’s a romantic at heart)

But we can’t imagine her even blinking at $ 1,600 that seems to be raining down over her fence like dead leaves tossed by a petty neighbor.

Also, not for nothing, folks, but Taylor is famous for owning many, many homes. We have no idea what led Rowley to believe that he’d find her in Rhode Island.

We don’t imagine that Rowley’s going to get the Kanye treatment in one of Taylor’s new songs.

Sure, she sings about major life events — romances, breakups, feuds, downfalls. But you don’t sing about stalkers.

It feeds into their delusions, and might encourage other stalkers to take similar actions. Or worse actions.

Hopefully, Rowley is undergoing a psychological evaluation and will be able to receive the help that he clearly needs.

Amber Rose Destroys Trolls: My Son’s Not Gay for Loving Taylor Swift!

Amber Rose’s five-year-old son, Sebastian Taylor Thomaz, is one happy, lucky boy. Fans may enjoy Amber Rose in the nude, but Sebastian enjoys that his mother is just a wonderful parent.

Unfortunately, some truly awful commenters have decided to troll Amber, attempting to shame her son for liking Taylor Swift, and speculating that he must be gay.

Amber Rose is clapping back, big-time.

This all came up when Amber decided to share the good news (and her thanks to Taylor) on social media.

As Amber reveals, Taylor Swift personally sent her son a Reputation gift set that included tickets to see her.

Most people would be excited to receive a personalized gift from one of their favorite singers, or tickets to see that singer on tour, or a gift set based on the top-selling album of 2017.

Young Sebastian was absolutely over the moon, which Amber shared with her followers.

Just look at how happy he is!

Unfortunately, she got some nasty trolls who decided that Sebastian liking Taylor Swift’s music is somehow an indicator of his sexuality.

Amber, who has thankfully never shied away from speaking her mind, posted a series of messages to her Instagram story to shut down that kind of thinking.

“Shout-out to all the hyper-masculine men and ignorant dumb-ass women that will call a 5-year-old gay for liking Taylor Swift.”

She is quick to point out that this kind of attitude is pernicious.

“This is why young kids kill themselves. and this is also why our society is so f–ked up.”

And she shoots down the idea that sexuality and music genres are intrinsically linked.

“Liking a certain type of music will not make you ‘pick’ your sexuality, you dumb f–ks.”

Amber Rose message

Amber is, of course, right.

Members of the LGBT+ community may joke about liking certain songs because of their sexuality, but … that is a joke.

In reality, the only reason that certain music genres are tied to sexualities is because toxic masculinity — as displayed by these trolls — discourages a lot of men from embracing the music that they like.

There are plenty of gay men who like Country and Metal, and there are plenty of straight men who love Ariana Grande and Britney Spears for more than how they look on stage.

But some people feel pushed by cultural norms to avoid the music that they enjoy the most.

Amber continued to talk about her wonderful son.

This time, she’s bragging.

“P.S. My son just got accepted into the most prestigious private school in Los Angeles because he’s smart as f–k and creative as f–k like his parents.”

Amber Rose is in that wealth bracket — where choosing a kindergarten is a status symbol and sets someone’s path to success.

(To be fair, there are counties in the U.S. where private schools are a necessary option, and L.A. is generally considered to be one of them)

She talks about what makes Sebastian so exceptional.

“We allow him to be himself. He can listen to whatever music he likes, he can like whatever color he wants, and we let him be passionate about whatever his little heart desires.”

Regardless of your child’s gender, you should never pressure them into preferring certain hairstyles or colors or activities. If your daughter likes truck-ball or whatever and your son wants to take ballet, just figure out how to schedule it for them.

“We don’t make our son live by society norms. That’s why he’s so special. Let’s do better for the next generation, people. Grow the f-ck up and teach your kids to love and not hate.”

That is wonderful advice.

Amber Rose thank you taylor swift

To be clear, Amber Rose is a vocal supporter of the LGBT+ community. She’s not offended by the idea of her son being gay.

“P.S.S. Regardless if he’s gay or straight, when he gets older, he will be around the most amazing, loving people that will support him no matter what.”

And Amber can’t help but remind these trolls that her son’s life is already better than theirs could ever be.

“He also has more money in his bank account than any of you trolls could even imagine. FOH.”

One can’t help but wonder how many of these haters were just jealous of Sebastian’s happy life and wished that he could have a childhood as unhappy and miserable as their own. Some people are like that.

But maybe some of them just really don’t understand sexuality.

Sadly, this isn’t even the first time that Amber has had to deal with this same issue.

One times, because she’s a fun mother who owns a lot of wigs, she let Sebastian don a wig for fun.

As you can imagine, the people who think that any hair longer than a crew cut belongs to girls were up in arms.

Amber clapped back then, too.

“Wow, you people are so smart, huh? Putting on a wig is going to make a baby gay?”

She suggests a hilarious experiment for anyone worried that this is how sexuality works.

“Straight guys, do yourselves a favor: Put on a wig and see if you’re turned on by another man. I’ll wait.”

And she excoriates homophobic women, too.

“And ladies, seriously, grow the f-ck up and educate yourselves. Throw one of your wigs on your boyfriend or your dad. Yay! He’s gay! Oh wait, you’re all just f–king idiots.”

A lot of people are probably wishing that Amber Rose were their mother.

Taylor Swift Releases Music Video. Does Anyone Care?

Remember when the release of a Taylor Swift music video was more than just an Internet event?

Remember when it was practically a national holiday?

Those days are not all that long ago… yet it certainly seems as if buzz surrounding the artist has died down considerably since nearly the entire world scoffed as her "Look What You Made Me Do" video.

Has the music world moved on from Taylor Swift?

It's an interesting question in light of her unveiling the video for the single "Delicate" at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards.

The singer, who did win Female Artist of the Year at the show, opens the clip by being interviewed on the red carpet.

She is then handed some kind of magical note before she walks into a hotel lobby, where she’s asked to pose for a selfie by a fan prior to her bodyguards taking her away.

From here, Swift realizes she’s suddenly become invisible (yes, invisible) and celebrates by tossing off her shoes and dancing up a storm … including shaking it off on top of the hotel bar.

There has to be a message in here somewhere, right?

About Swift sort of wishing she could be invisible at times?

Next, Taylor is in the subway, crawling barefoot on to the cleanest train anyone has ever seen in the history of this transportation system.

The scene then shifts to show her up at street level, where it’s pouring rain.

(There's a glimpse at one point of Joe’s Deli, which we're guessing is and to boyfriend Joe Alwyn.)

At this point, Swift truly goes for it, spinning on the roof of a car and doing some splits.

She feels more free and more content than ever before, it seems.

Eventually, however, the note dissolves in Taylor's hand and suddenly all the patrons at a bar can see her again. Darn!

And while it does seem as if Swift's reputation has taken a hit of late, she still has quite the passionate fan base on social media.

“@taylorswift13 the music video is so pure and real i cant stop crying and the meaning behind is important i love you with my whole heart,” one person wrote in response, while another added:

"Honey the freedom and the happiness you showed in the video was everything…such an amazing reminder to be yourself and to never be afraid to do what’s right for you I LOVE YOU."

Ready to react for yourself?

Karlie Kloss Betrays Taylor Swift, Parties With Katy Perry!

Benedict Arnold. Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. Paul the Verizon Guy.

History is full of turncoats and traitors, but perhaps none is more treacherous than the wolf in Victoria’s Secret clothing known as Karlie Kloss.

You may know Karlie from her modeling career, or as the former best friend of one Ms. Taylor Alison Swift.

Having apparently forgotten that her former friend is rivaled only by Biggie and Tupac in her love for a scathing diss track, Karlie has openly betrayed her ex-bestie by grabbing sushi with none other than Katy Perry.

Unless this is the first time you’ve heard of either singer, then you’re probably aware that Taylor and Katy are rivals.

Actually, that’s an understatement.

Katy and Taylor despise one another for reasons that have never been entirely clear.

Taylor says it’s because Katy stole her backup dancers.

But the consensus seems to be that it has more to do with the fact that both women dated John Mayer.

Whatever the case, the former friends are now bitter enemies, and that doesn’t seem likely to change, especially now what Katy is plundering Taylor’s famous squad for new allies.

According to TMZ, Katy and Karlie were spotted grabbing sushi in LA together on Wednesday night.

It’s a pretty clear sign that Karlie has switched her allegiances, and Taylor fans are reading the flaunting of this new friendship as an intentional, public diss from Katy.

But to be fair, Karlie and Taylor have apparently had problems for quite some time.

They haven’t been spotted hanging out since 2015, the bizarre period of time during which Taylor’s squad seemed to make constant tabloid headlines.

It’ been rumored that some of the more scathing lyrics in Taylor’s blistering single “Look What You Made Me Do” were directed at Karlie.

In turn, Kloss took a shot at Taylor by captioning a tweet, “Swish swish,” an apprent reference to Katy’s diss track of the same name.

So the fact that Karlie has buddied up with Katy may not come as a total shock, but even so, we’re guessing Taylor will have a tough time shaking this one off.

Kim Kardashian Shades Taylor Swift, Blac Chyna & The Rest of Her Enemies List

On the surface, it may not seem like Kim Kardashian and Richard Nixon have a whole lot in common, but dig a little deeper, and you’ll realize they’re more similar than they appear.

Both will be forever associated with scandalous tapes; both have complicated relationships with their mothers; and both understand the importance of a comprehensive enemies list.

Us peasant people might have one or two enemies – perhaps one Starbucks barista who always spells your name wrong, and another who always glares at you for walking across his freshly mopped floor – but the rich and powerful often have more foes than they can easily keep track of.

And that’s where the value of a well-organized enemies list comes into play.

Kim recently became a mother of three, and she says she’s in the best shape of her life these days.

She’s leveling up in every way possible for 2018, and apparently, that includes taking her pettiness to new heights.

And what does that mean for her carefully-cultivated catalog of adversaries?

Kim Kardashian Valentines

Why, it means they get roasted with blue Valentines, of course.

Kim has a new fragrance out, and she’s promoting it by delivering samples encased in chocolate hearts to some of her celebrity associates … even the ones she doesn’t like.

Mrs. Kardashian-West posted a Snapchat video detailing her plan, and as you can, see the recipients in blue comprise a special class:

“I’m going to send them to my lovers, to my haters, to everyone that I think of, because it’s Valentine’s Day, after all,” Kim said in the clip.

So it looks like we now have the definitive list of Kim’s haters:

There’s Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne, Bette Midler, and Chloe Grace Moretz – who have all called out Kim’s nudes over the years.

There’s Blac Chyna and Taylor Swift (no big surprises there).

There’s Naya Rivera, Wendy Williams, and Pink, all of whom have mom-shamed Kim at one point or another (or at least they have in Kim’s eyes).

And there are some surprises in the mix, as well.

(Since when do Kim and Sarah Michelle Gellar have beef?)!

In all fairness, this might be Kim’s way of extending an olive branch – but we prefer to think of it as gloriously subtle shade.

Yes, the first non-Tide Pod-related trend of 2018 is officially here, so send a blue Valentine to your haters today!
