Kim Kardashian: Throwing Shade at Taylor Swift on Selena Gomez’s Instagram Page?!

When confronted with unnecessary drama, we often remark that the situation is “like something out of high school.”

The sad truth that we don’t want to admit to ourselves is that the adult world is frequently characterized by pettiness, backstabbing, grudges, and rumors, and high school is just our earliest exposure to it.

Take the the three-way shade-fest between Kim Kardashian Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez, for example.

As you may recall, the Kim vs. Taylor feud began last year, when Swift got upset over some lyrics on Kanye West’s album, and Kim busted out the receipts proving that Taylor had (as Kanye claimed) given him permission to record the offending line.

It was a mess, and Swift came away from it looking shady AF, but until recently, it looked as though Kim and Taylor had put their beef behind them.

Considering they’re two of the world’s most influential women, they’re 36 and 27 years old, respectively, and one of them is soon to be a mother of three, letting bygones be bygones seemed like the most appropriate course of action.

That’s where Selena Gomez enters the equation.

Selena, as you may know, has a lot on her plate these days, what with being the recipient of a life-saving kidney transplant and rekindling her romance with arguably the world’s most famous recording artist.

So these days, Selena probably has very little time for Mean Girl drama, but the same can’t be said of Kim “Cool Mom” Kardashian.

According to Hollywood Life, Kim has been “liking” and “favoriting” Selena’s social media posts non-stop lately.

The site insists its Kim’s way of “taunting” Selena’s bestie, Taylor Swift.

That’s a bit of a stretch, but it’s a holiday week, and content that doesn’t include the word “grope” is hard to come by these days, so we’ll allow it.

Sure, it’s possible that Kim was liking Selena’s Instagram selfies simply because she liked the selfies, but where’s the fun in that?

Those party poopers over at Gossip Cop have taken things a step further, suggesting that all those “likes” might be Kim’s way of extending an olive branch to Taylor.

We literally can’t think of a more lame-ass, timid, roundabout way of getting back into someone’s good graces, and Kim doesn’t strike us as the shy type, so we’re gonna go ahead and toss that notion.

It’s one thing to meticulously dissect a situation in search of drama, but to squash it?

Didn’t these people to to high school?!


This is Why Taylor Swift Made Jimmy Fallon Cry Last Night

As previously reported, Jimmy Fallon recently lost his mother.

The host took a week off from filming The Tonight Show to mourn his loved one and then returned on Monday night and briefly addressed the sad situation from behind his desk.

At the top of the hour, Fallon said he was by his mother's side when she passed away… 

… and then he shared a memory that combined his childhood with his mother's final moments.

“When we were little, my mom would walk us to the store, and we would hold hands. And she would squeeze my hand three times, and say ‘I love you,‘” a teary-eyed Fallon told the audience.

“Last week, I was in the hospital and I grabbed her hand and squeezed ‘I love you.’ I just knew we were in trouble.”

How does this story relate to musical guest Taylor Swift?

Swift performed the track “New Years Day” on the program, which is a ballad about never leaving a loved one’s side.

And it turns out that a lyric on the single bears a striking similarity to the memory Fallon revealed earlier in the evening.

“You squeeze my hand three times in the back of the taxi,” Swift sings in one verse. “I can tell that it’s gonna be a long road.”

When Taylor sang these words, Fallon was visibly moved to years off-camera, sources have confirmed.

And for an understandable reason, right?

According to writer/producer Mike DiCenzo, Swift wasn't even booked for the show until the last moment.

And no one had any idea she would sing something that happened to be so personal to the host.

"I could see Jimmy silhouetted at his desk dabbing his eyes with a tissue," DiCenzo tweeted about the moment Swift hit that line, adding:

"We all lost it. It was a beautiful coincidence in a beautiful performance."

After she completed her performance, Swift and Fallon embraced.

You can hear the latter thanking the former in the video below.

"That hug between Jimmy and Taylor after the song was 100% real emotion. Whatever you think of Taylor, she did something beautiful for Jimmy and our show today, and we're forever grateful," DiCenzo also said.

Pretty cool, huh?

Taylor Swift Slams Kanye West HARD in New Song!

Today’s the big day, friends — the day Taylor Swift’s new album drops!

Or, well, it already did drop, because it’s not 1999 and you don’t have to beg your mom to take you to the mall after school to pick the CD up.

But you know what we mean.

Right at this very moment, you can hop on iTunes or run to the Target or whatever you prefer and purchase Reputation, and isn’t that so exciting?!

Even if you don’t love the smooth sounds of Swifty, it’s always fun to analyze all the lyrics and figure out who she’s singing about.

And that’s exactly what we’re going to do today.

So far, at least two of the tracks seem to reference Taylor’s feud with Kanye West — “I Did Something Bad” and “This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things.”

“I never trust a narcissist,” she sings in the first verse of that first song, “but they love me. So I play ‘em like a violin and I make it look oh so easy.”

“‘Cause for every lie I tell them, they tell me three. This is how the world works, now all he thinks about is me.”

It’s a little vague, but then she sings “If a man talks sh-t, then I owe him nothing. I don’t regret it one bit ‘cause he had it coming.”

That’s what’s making people think this part of the song could be about Kanye, because we all know he talked a fair bit of sh-t about her.

But then again, one could also say that Calvin Harris did the same thing last summer after their breakup, you know?

In the bridge, Taylor sings “They’re burning all the witches, even if you aren’t one. They got their pitchforks and proof, their receipts and reasons.”

That part could also be about several things — her reputation did take a lot of hits in the past year or so, hence, you know, this whole entire album.

But could it be about Kanye and Kim Kardashian? With the line about “receipts,” it’s definitely possible.

Because when you think of Taylor Swift and receipts, you pretty much definitely think of that phone call between Taylor and Kanye that Kim recorded and leaked.

You remember — Kanye released his song “Famous,” the one that contained that lyric about having sex with Taylor because “I made that bitch famous.”

Taylor was very offended, but later Kim released a recording of a phone call that proved that Kanye had run the lyric by her before recording the song, and that she was cool with it.

After that, Taylor clarified that she was cool with the sex lyric and the thing about how he made her famous, but her issue was the word “bitch,” which he didn’t run by her during their talk.

It seemed weird at the time, because in a line like “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that bitch famous,” the idea seems much more offensive than that one word.

But that’s Taylor’s story and she’s sticking to it, and even if “I Did Something Bad” doesn’t reference Kanye, “This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things” almost certainly does.

In this one, she begins by describing “big parties” and “feeling so Gatsby for that whole year” before asking someone “Why’d you have to rain on my parade?”

In the chorus, she sings “This is why we can’t have nice things, darling, because you break them. I had to take them away.”

“This is why we can’t have nice things, honey. Did you think I wouldn’t hear all the things you said about me? This is why we can’t have nice things.”

Again, this could be about Kanye or an ex-boyfriend, but it’s the second verse that makes it pretty clear that good ol’ Yeezus is to blame for all this.

Here, just check it out in its entirety:

It was so nice being friends again / There I was, giving you a second chance / But then you stabbed me in the back while shaking my hand / And therein lies the issue

Friends don’t try to trick you / Get you on the phone and mind-twist you / And so I took an ax to a mended fence

But I’m not the only friend you’ve lost lately / If only you weren’t so shady

See, because there was a period when she was friendly again with Kanye after he ruined her special moment at the VMAs all those years ago. She did give him a second chance.

Then he released “Famous” and hurt her feelings when she thought they were cool — he “stabbed [her] in the back,” so to speak.

The “get you on the phone and mind-twist” you is what makes this painfully obvious, because even on the small chance this isn’t about Kanye, she had to know what everyone would think with a pointed reference like that.

And then “I’m not the only friend you’ve lost lately,” well, we know what happened with Jay Z, don’t we?

In the bridge, Taylor gives “a toast to my real friends, they don’t care about that he-said-she-said,” and also to her “baby,” who “ain’t reading what they call me lately.”

“And here’s to my mama,” she continues, “had to listen to all this drama. And here’s to you, ‘cause forgiveness is a nice thing to do.”

But then she laughs and says “I can’t even say it with a straight face.”

It doesn’t look like she’s letting this go anytime soon, does it?

At least it’s more fun this way.


Taylor Swift Releases “Call It What You Want,” Praises Joe Alwyn!

Taylor Swift, whether you love her or hate her or somehow manage to be indifferent, is back.

She's owning the "snake" label and turning it back on her detractors. Her new album comes out sooner that you could believe.

But you don't have to wait that long, because she's dropped a brand new single — and you can listen to it, below.

Taylor swift joe alwynTaylor swift rocks

What was the first thing that you did this morning? (Wait, don't answer that)

The first thing that I did this morning was check my phone, and I'd received an iTunes email telling me that a new Taylor Swift song was available.

YouTube had already notified me that she had a new video available. It's a lyrics video, but still — it's the debut of her new song.

Taylor has been teasing the track all week, on social media platforms like Instagram and Tumblr.

(Taylor is known to interact directly with superfans and address them by name on Tumblr in particular)

This song, "Call It What You Want," is only the fourth single that Taylor has unveiled from her new album, Reputation.

As we mentioned, in addition to the iTunes release, the song came out in a lyric video on YouTube.

We'll be honest, it's the weakest of Taylor's new singles … but it's also quite possibly the most informative.

Joe alwyn

See, "Call It What You Want" is widely believed to be about Joe Alwyn.

Note that Taylor's previous single, "Gorgeous," which possibly includes North West's voice in order to taunt Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, is also basically universally believed to be about her current boyfriend.

Seriously, the whole song sounds like gushing over Joe Alwyn, if not by name.

That was "Gorgeous." In "Call It What You Want," Taylor gets to that … but first, before she gets into the relationship stuff, she talks about how she was wronged.

"My castle crumbled overnight / I brought a knife to a gunfight / They took the crown, but it's alright."

Her career spiraled out of control, as she predicted when she first expressed to Kanye that she was leery of him mentioning her in his song.

(Which we know from the shadily edited recordings that Kim later leaked)

She speaks frankly about how she deliberately vanished from the public eye in order to let things cool down.

"All the liars are calling me one / Nobody's heard from me for months / I'm doing better than I ever was, 'cause."

Why is she now doing better, you wonder?

Taylor swift call it what you want

Here's the chorus:

"My baby's fit like a daydream."

We don't know of any photos of Joe Alwyn shirtless (which is weird, for an actor, right?), so we suppose that we'll just have to take Taylor's word for it about his fitness.

"Walking with his head down / I'm the one he's walking to."

Rumor has it that Taylor and Joe have been meeting covertly to avoid the public eye throughout their relationship.

"So call it what you want, yeah, call it what you want to."

Ah, yes, the part of the song with the song's title in it.

"My baby's fly like a jet stream / High above the whole scene / Loves me like I'm brand new."

The "high above the whole scene" line clearly refers to how they can avoid public judgments and rumors and haters by just being separate from them.

And the "loves me like I'm brand new" line, of course, refers to her reputation not being a factor in their relationship.

And then, again, the title.

"So call it what you want, yeah, call it what you want to."

Taylor swift look what you made me do

You guys, Reputation drops in one week — on November 10th.

It will be interesting to see if her relationship with Tom Hiddleston made it into a song.

It will also be interesting to hear how aggressively she calls out Calvin Harris. Kim might have never had the opportunity to drop those recordings on Snapchat if Calvin hadn't thrown his little tantrum on Twitter first.

Anyway, we can hardly wait.

At last, when Reputation comes out, we'll know which song is our favorite.

And we'll get to see how it compares to 1989.
