Logan Paul is not in hiding in the wake of some major blowback over the suicide video that has cost him dearly. Logan was at Tao Saturday night in Hollywood, with a bunch of friends who shielded him as they left. The YouTube star was mum as photogs…
Taylor Swift's "Endgame" music video quietly dropped, folks! It features partying, drinking, dancing, and more drinking.
Oh, and some hefty appearances by Ed Sheeran and Future. Check it out below!
Taylor Swift was tremendously popular, even a decade ago. But, for a while, she was a very niche celebrity. Not only was she a hopeless romantic, her music was primarily of the Country variety.
That changed with her 2014 album, 1989. And those of us who weren't already became obsessed with the undeniably pleasant music of one Ms. Swift.
For more than a year, Taylor Swift was sailing high above the clouds. Everyone wanted to be on her side and no one wanted to cross her.
Until, in 2016, she broke up with underwear model and DJ Calvin Harris. After it was revealed that she had written (and even performed some uncredited vocals in) his biggest hit song, he lashed out at her on Twitter, referencing her feud with Katy. A number of people, fatigued with Taylor's overexposure in the media, began to turn on her.
And that was when Kim Kardashian struck, releasing a series of months old, edited videos of a conversation between Taylor and Kanye that appeared to frame Taylor Swift as dishonest or "playing the victim."
What's important to remember about the fued-related songs on Taylor Swift's Reputation album is that … they're not really part of the feud.
These songs aren't weapons designed to hurt Kim Kardashian.
And we don't know how someone would go about "hurting" Kanye with music.
She slams Kanye with her music, but the guy basically lives on his own private planet.
Taylor's purpose — in addition to telling her story — is much more practical.
You know they say that success is the best revenge? Well, Taylor Swift is really good at revenge.
Reputation was the top-selling album of 2017. Because of course it was.
Taylor's success is taking everything that Kim threw at her in 2016 and singing about it for heaps of cold, hard cash. Several of the songs directly reference the feud.
Kim, though she's never had trouble being wealthy and is arguably a master at turning bad press into a financial gain, won't find it so easy to directly monetize her side of the feud.
Unless she, like, comes out with some kind of fragrance line called "Snake Repellant" or whatever.
Based on what Taylor put into her "Endgame" music video, you'd think that she'd taken to drinking to cope with her epic feud and the resulting fallout.
Of course, the music video just shows her at a bunch of parties, where drinking is pretty standard. So there's that.
Taylor's big guns for the music video are her guest stars.
Remember when Reputation came out, and people were like "wait, did she just get Ed Sheeran to rap?"
That was this song. Long the original track, this music video features both Ed Sheeran and Future.
Overall, this video is less powerful than "Look What You Made Me Do" or the high-ish concept video fro "Are You Ready For It."
And, in my opinion, so is the song. (My bestie likes "Endgame" a lot, though)
Some of us prefer the videos with stunning visuals to the ones with drinking and partying. We can all drink and party, even if we can't do it with quite Taylor's budget.
You know what music videos we'd really like to see from Taylor? "This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things" and "Getaway Car." Those were two of the best songs on the whole dang album and don't get the attention that they deserve.
A nice music video or two could change that.

After filming a controversial video of himself and his friends in the woods of Japan last month, Logan Paul may think he’s faced all the backlash he’s going to face.
But it turns out the lame social media star is not, well… out of the woods.
Not yet at least.
A week ago, Paul issued his first of two apologies after uploading footage taken at Japan’s infamous “suicide forest” near the base of Mt. Fuji.
The footage featured an actual dead body, the result from a man tragically hanging himself, about which Paul joked.
He also hovered over the corpse from close up and came across like an insensitive, offensive, total loser of a creep.
The video sparked debate about the role of someone such as Paul in society, as he isn’t just known for going to extreme lengths online in order to rack up hits and views…
… he’s also become a multi-millionaire for these kinds of attention-seeking stunts.
After taking down the video amidst an avalanche of criticism, Paul initially said the following:
“I’m a human being. I make mistakes…
“I didn’t do it for views. I get views. I did it because I thought I could make a positive ripple on the Internet, not cause a monsoon of negativity. That’s never the intention.”
He concluded at this time:
“I was misguided by shock and awe, as portrayed in the video. I still am.”
Perhaps aware that he came across like a douchebag after this mea culpa, Paul later tried again (with a video he monetized), saying on camera:
“I have made a severe and continuous lapse in my judgment, and I don’t expect to be forgiven. I’m simply here to apologize.
“I should’ve never posted the video. I should’ve put the cameras down and stopped recording what we were going through.
“There’s a lot of things I should’ve done differently, but I didn’t and for that, from the bottom of my heart, I am sorry.”
Paul went on to say he needed to “reflect” on life and that he was taking a hiatus from social media.
No one out there really thinks much will change, though; regarding Paul and/or regarding YouTube accepting him as a member of its platform.
He’ll keep churning out dumb content and YouTube will keep making money off it.
Perhaps aware that its reputation has taken a hit as part of this controversy, the company has released a new statement on the topic.
Via an “open letter our community” late on Tuesday, YouTube wrote the following:
“Many of you have been frustrated with our lack of communication recently. You’re right to be. You deserve to know what’s going on.
“It’s taken us a long time to respond, but we’ve been listening to everything you’ve been saying.
“We know that the actions of one creator can affect the entire community, so we’ll have more to share soon on steps we’re taking to ensure a video like this is never circulated again.”
The platform continued by defending its decision to remove the clip from its website and added:
“The channel violated our community guidelines, we acted accordingly, and we are looking at further consequences.”
What might this mean?
Could Logan Paul really get the permanent boot?
We can’t imagine so.
But maybe he won’t be able to profit off such filth ever again.
Concluded YouTube’s latest take on the issue:
“We expect more of the creators who build their community on YouTube, as we’re sure you do too …
“We’ll have more to share soon on steps we’re taking to ensure a video like this is never circulated again.”
We’ll see what happens from here.
Matt Roloff has shared a new video on Instagram that reveals absolutely nothing…
… and yet possibly everything at the same time.
In the footage, which we’ve posted below, the Little People, Big World patriarch is behind the wheel of his car.
He pans over to a house (for some reason) and then over to the passenger seat, where long-time girlfriend Caryn Chandler is just hanging out and smiling.
Roloff remarks that he can’t film his Instagram Story while he’s driving and, well, that’s it.
Like we said, it reveals absolutely nothing, right?
Or did Matt intend on giving his followers a look at the home he and Chandler have purchased together, but was simply unable to do so at that moment?
Before (over) analyzing the video in question, take a look at it here:
Roloff has been dating Chandler for about a year now.
The romance is not without its complications and controversies, however, considering Chandler got to know Matt by working as the manager at his family’s farm.
Yes, the same farm ex-wife Amy also owns.
Caryn and Amy weren’t best friends or anything, but they certainly knew each other fairly well when the former started to date Matt.
As a result, many TLC viewers continue to give Matt a hard time for this relationship, putting the reality star on blast any time he shares a photo with Chandler.
They understand the two are dating; they just don’t think Roloff ought to be flaunting it on social media or in public.
For the record, meanwhile, here’s a photo of Chandler, taken from the video above.
It didn’t help quiet matters when Chandler allegedly snubbed Amy back in October.
According to a bombshell report, Caryn organized a big birthday party for Matt and invited all of his loved ones… except for Amy.
Some might say this is perfectly normal (Why would a girlfriend invite her lover’s ex-wife to a party she’s hosting?), but others might argue that the invitation would have been a nice gesture.
It’s not as though Amy and Matt don’t talk often, after all.
And Amy likely would have turned it down anyway.
Moreover, the party was held at the farm. And Amy was at the farm on the day of the party!
“It definitely felt like she was being usurped at her own farm by Matt’s new girlfriend,” a source told Radar Online.
The thing is, Amy has a boyfriend of her own.
She seems VERY happy with Chris Marek and does not need your pity.
So you can go ahead and speculate on Matt’s relationship status. You can wonder about the meaning of this attempt at an Instagram Story.
Just know one thing for sure:
Amy isn’t doing that. She has happily moved on.
Logan Paul’s a man on the run, and not only from controversy. The shamed YouTube star was out jogging Friday in L.A. — the first time he’s been seen in public since posting the controversial video of a dead body in Japan’s Suicide Forest. …
The Rob Chyna relationship wasted little time before it deteriorated into something nasty.
But one good thing did emerge from that nightmare that will haunt the entire Kardashian clan for years to come: Dream Kardashian.
And in the adorable video below, Rob pushes her on the swing. You have to hear her precious little voice!
As you'll see in the unbearably cute video below, Rob Kardashian pushed his daughter on the swing.
She smiles, she squeals, and she even says hello to someone who's passing by.
Dream is, what, 14 months old?
She's growing up so quickly but remaining super adorbs.
And if you think that her photos gives you a heart-stopping jolt of oxytocin, listening to her voice as she jabbers just might kill you. In, you know, a good way.
Rob Kardashian knew that the video was cute, so he took a break from posting ads for his, uh, line of socks (you know, the one thing that he does) to share not only a photo, but the video.
It's reassuring to hear dream speak. Maybe I just have a skewed sense of things, but a lot of celebrity babies seem to take an awfully long time to speak.
Some experts believe that it's a result of things like tablets being used as children's toys, though we hesitate to jump on the "technology is bad, Thomas Edison was a witch" bandwagon. Life isn't an episode of Black Mirror.
Dream appears to be developing healthily (and happily!)
It must be nice to be so, we hope, blissfully unaware of what your parents' relationship was like.
Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian accuse each other of drug-fueled violence during their ill-fated relationship.
Rob (with help from little sister Kylie) is currently suing Blac Chyna, claiming that she caused $ 100,000 in damages during an alleged explosive, violent rampage through the house that he was renting from Kylie.
For her part?
The two of them are suing the hell out of each other in court — yeah, Chyna got her child support payment, but also claims that the Kardashians destroyed her budding reality career.
The good news is that Dream, at least, is not part of these court battles.
That's not to say that she can't be impacted by any of this. Kids, even young kids, can tell when things aren't right with their parents.
But it's safe to say that neither of Dream's parents are going to be destitute.
True, Rob Kardashian may too broke to even pay Chyna what she wants from him, but Rob's family has been quietly "helping" him for a while, now.
No grandchild of Kris Jenner's is going to lack for anything.
On a much brighter note than abuse allegations or legal battles:
Watch this video of precious, sweet, adorable Dream!
Listening to her delighted squeals and to her jabbering really warmed the cockles of our (frozen, thanks to the "bomb cyclone") hearts.
Take a look!
