Taylor Swift Stans Are SUPER Pissed At The Grammys For Snubbing Look What You Made Me Do!

As you surely saw, on Tuesday morning, The Recording Academy finally announced their full list of noms, where artists like JAY-Z, Kendrick Lamar, and Bruno Mars were named frontrunners. AH-Mazing! Now, despite the fact that Taylor Swift DID receive nominations for her work with Zayn Malik on I Don't Wanna Live Forever and for penning Little Big Town's Better Man, the blonde hitmaker's fans are up in arms that she didn't get more love from the Academy. Related: Taylor's Lawyers Fall Silent Amid Feud With Blogger! From what we can see on Twitter, many of TayTay's fans believe the Grammys snubbed Swift -- even though the Look What You Made Me Do single and music video were Swift's ONLY content from Reputation which qualified for this year's awards show! In case you were unaware, the eligibility period for the Grammys ends in September. Thus, the November-released Reputation will be up for consideration NEXT year. Regardless, Swift stans far and wide have voiced their disdain that LWYMMD wasn't celebrated more by the Academy. Ch-ch-check out the strongest reactions for yourself (below)!

Todrick Hall Responds To Backlash Over Being In Taylor Swift"s Video & Calls Out The Celebs "Who Recorded Her Against Her Will"

Todrick Hall has no problem making it clear he's Taylor Swift's friend, and he doesn't care what you have to say about it! In an interview with Yahoo, the dancer and singer defended their friendship AND his role in her Look What You Made Me Do video! Related: Taylor & Karlie Are Still "Good Friends" Despite Rumors He [...] Todrick Hall has no problem making it clear he's Taylor Swift's friend, and he doesn't care what you have to say about it! In an interview with Yahoo, the dancer and singer defended their friendship AND his role in her Look What You Made Me Do video! Related: Taylor & Karlie Are Still "Good Friends" Despite Rumors He explained: "We are friends, and so when she asked me to do this video, I said absolutely. It wasn't a question for me. I trust her, and I had no problem doing the video. And I just think that it's really sad and shocking that me doing four eight-counts of choreography is enough to make people feel the need to question my 'blackness' or 'wokeness.'" So, what were some of the criticism Todrick got? "One of the main things that people said was, 'He wanted to make his money. Well, good for him, he got paid. And I guess payment is enough for you to sell out your family, your people, your community.' But this had nothing to do with money. I didn't do this Taylor Swift video for money. I did it because she's my friend, and she was very excited about it. And she wanted people to be there who she could trust, because it was a very big undertaking. I was proud to be there, but money was not a factor for me. I don't do things for money." And he also had some words for those viewers who thought Taylor might be stealing from Beyoncé just by watching that initial video teaser: "They saw a clip, just a few seconds, that featured Taylor Swift standing in a line of dancers, and they started forming all types of conclusions. I was just very confused by that, because I knew that there was nothing Formation-esque or Lemonade-esque about the video. Artistically, I didn't feel that was the case. I'm a humongous Beyoncé fan. I've worked with Beyoncé. I've choreographed for Beyoncé. And I would never intentionally be a part of art that I felt was ripping off my favorite artist of all time. But I felt like these were two completely different lanes." The Kinky Boots performer explained: "I have gotten comments from people who are upset and have literally said the fact that I am friends with a white person is a problem, because white people don't possess the ability to love or ever truly care about black people. And I find that very disheartening... My whole brand, everything that I stand for and everything I've always stood for, is equality and love. So it's just really difficult for me to understand why it is an issue for people, a legitimate issue, that I have white friends, and that Taylor Swift happens to be one of my many white friends... It boggles my mind that people are deciding whether or not I'm down enough, black enough." He added he has an issue with those criticizing his BFF for not speaking out politically by bringing up Kanye West: "Yeah, many people have been tweeting me, 'She supports Trump! She probably voted for Trump!' They're making this huge assumption, when Taylor has never to my knowledge come out and said anything about her being pro-Trump. But people would still rather believe that she is the one who is pushing Trump's agenda. That was one of the major things that was tweeted at me, and I'm like, 'So you are mad that you think she might support Donald Trump? But you're not mad that Kanye has been very openly pro-Trump?' I don't understand that." And then there's the whole issue with how Kanye recorded her without her knowledge, and Kim Kardashian West put it online: "It just is shocking to me that people will see an image of her and hear stories online about her, or arguments with other celebrities who she did not ask to be involved with, who recorded her against her will without her knowing and then decided to release six-second clips of a conversation that happened to paint her to be this evil person that I don't believe that she is. Come on, we've watched millions of episodes of Law & Order or seen Judge Judy a million times; how are they not able to conclude that there is something missing from this? If you feel the need to record someone on video with people there, the intentions may not have been the most pure." Read on for even more HIGHlights from Todrick's interview about his relationship with Taylor: On who she is as a person: "Look, I'm not Taylor Swift, so I can't speak for her and why she does or does not choose to speak or not speak about any specific subject matter. All I know is that she has been nothing but a great person to me. Her family has welcomed me into their home and treated me like I was a member of the family. They've welcomed every single person I've ever brought around them. I've never felt like there was ever a moment that I couldn't be myself, and talk about the fact that I'm gay or whatever. At Thanksgiving, we all sat around and talked about it, and there was another one of her friends there who was African-American, and we all sat down and talked about racism and watched 13th on Netflix and talked about how important it was. It was one of the most beautiful conversations I've ever had, because sometimes as an African-American person I feel like I can't voice my opinion about how difficult it is to be not just an African-American person in the entertainment industry, but how scary it is to be black in America, in even 2017. When it comes to Taylor, all I know is that she has been a sweet, amazing human being to me. When she calls me, it's hardly ever to talk about her accomplishments or things that she's going through. She calls me and says, 'How's your heart? Are you OK?' I've been around her an awful lot, and if it were some type of crazy, fake façade, I think I would have figured it out by now. I feel like it's a genuine part of who she is, and she's a human being. Has she made mistakes? Yes. Will she make mistakes again? Yes. But let the person in America who has not made mistakes raise their hand." On people throwing shade at his BFF: "Taylor will start being super-political, and using her voice to do the things that people think that she should be doing. But even then, she will probably be ridiculed for not being vocal enough, or not being on the right side. I don't think that there is a way to win in this industry, so every person has to take their own journey at their own pace, at their own time, and do what they feel like is right. All I know is that Taylor has been nothing but sweet to me since day one, and if she asks me to do a video, I'm absolutely going be there." On his feelings about starring in her LWYMMD video: "I'm not apologizing for being a part of the video and doing four eight-counts of choreography in it. I thought it was a great piece of art. I thought it was awesome. It's broken so many records and I'm proud to be a part of it. I don't think I've sold out my race or my community — the gay community, the black community. I think that I was just in a piece of art that my friend made. I'm not issuing a statement to people about it to explain myself, because there's nothing to explain. I'm not sorry that I did it, and I don't think that it was a mistake. If I had a do-over, I would absolutely be there for another eight hours, in heels, dancing with her."

Kimye, Tom Hiddleston, Calvin Harris, & MORE! Taylor Swift"s Reputation Decoded HERE!

YAAAAAAAAS! On Friday, Taylor Swift dropped her highly-anticipated sixth studio album, Reputation! Cue to us living our best lives!! Video: Tay Teases Her Formula 1 US Grand Prix Performance! The sweet singer's follow-up to the pop perfection that was 1989 is certainly her darkest work to date as the LP features music all about her highly publicized feud [...] YAAAAAAAAS! On Friday, Taylor Swift dropped her highly-anticipated sixth studio album, Reputation! Cue to us living our best lives!! Video: Tay Teases Her Formula 1 US Grand Prix Performance! The sweet singer's follow-up to the pop perfection that was 1989 is certainly her darkest work to date as the LP features music all about her highly publicized feud with Kanye West AND her rollercoaster love life. Drama, drama, dramaaaa!! It's hard to believe that we've finally got the complete Reputation project -- as it feels like it was only just yesterday that we learned about the old Taylor's death! May she rest in peace. Nonetheless, TayTay's Reputation has dropped and we've got plenty of tea to share. So, strap in, and take a look at all of the shade from TS6 (below)... If Ryan Murphy doesn't create a Feud season about Kanye West and Taylor Swift, he's sorely missing out. The blonde chart topper reignited her feud with the Famous rapper by slamming Kim Kardashian West's husband for being two-faced. In a biting new track, titled This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things, T.Swizzle shadily sang: "It was so nice being friends again / There I was giving you a second chance / But you stabbed me in the back while shaking my hand" In case you forgot, Taylor was accused of being a snake and a liar when Keeks leaked an edited phone call between the Gorgeous artist and Yeezy. Swift didn't stop there with her shots, as she also called out Kanye's falling out with JAY-Z: "But I'm not the only friend you've lost lately / Mm mm / If only you weren't so shady" DAMNNNN. Tell us how you really feel, Tay! Related: Swifties React To Reputation Still, Kanye wasn't the only A-lister to get a shout out on Reputation. Per Swift's song Getaway Car, it appears the 27-year-old knew her relationship with Tom Hiddleston was doomed from the start. Specifically, she noted: "A circus ain't a love story, and now we're both sorry … we're both sorry" Snap! Snap! Oh, and in Don't Blame Me, Taylor sang this saucy line: "I've been breaking hearts a long time and toying with them older guys." This verse could be about Hiddleston OR Calvin Harris. Regardless, we LOVES the sass. At the end of the day, a large portion of Taylor's album is about her low-key relationship with Joe Alwyn. As the twosome are rarely in public together, we're thrilled to have a look into their love story. In Delicate, Taylor confesses that the British actor fell for her despite her Reputation. She wrote: "My reputation's never been worse, so you must like me for me ... Is it cool that I said all that? Is it too soon to do this yet? ‘Cause I know that it's delicate …" Awwwww. And it sounds like Taylor and Joe have a pretty HAWT bedroom life too as in So It Goes..., Swift crooned: "You know I'm not a bad girl but I do bad things with you... dressed in black now … scratches down your back now." She opened up about the steamy side of her relationship with Alwyn again as she added in the song Dress: "I'm spilling wine in the bath tub, you kiss my face and we're both drunk … I don't want you like a best friend, only bought this dress so you could take it off." Taylor is all grown up, folks! Although, Tay seems to be really in love with Joe as she seemingly refers to him as the "King of [her] heart, body, and soul" in King of My Heart. Now, for all of you haters out there, Taylor clarified in End Game that she doesn't thrive on her many feuds -- but she's not afraid to engage with those who've wronged her. Alongside Future and Ed Sheeran, Swift noted: "I bury hatchets, but I keep maps of where I put 'em/reputation precedes me, they told you I'm crazy/I swear I don't love the drama, it loves me." You tell 'em, girl!!! So, after learning all these Easter Eggs, what do U think of TS6?! Be sure to let us know your thoughts (below)! [Image via Taylor Swift/Instagram.].....»»

"Jimmy Fallon" Producer Reveals the Heartbreaking Story Behind Taylor Swift"s Unscheduled Performance

Taylor Swift wasn’t scheduled to perform on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday night (November 13), but she did it anyway – as a tribute to Jimmy Fallon and his late mother, who died earlier this month. Show writer and producer Mike DiCenzo‏ told the heartbreaking story of her performance of Reputation track [...] Taylor Swift wasn’t scheduled to perform on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday night (November 13), but she did it anyway – as a tribute to Jimmy Fallon and his late mother, who died earlier this month. Show writer and producer Mike DiCenzo‏ told the heartbreaking story of her performance of Reputation track “New Year’s Day” – and the shocking accidental lyrical connection to Jimmy and his mom – in a series of tweets that night. “First, a quick word about Taylor Swift. She was not scheduled to do our show today. But we wanted something special for this first show back, so we asked her on a complete whim, since she had been in town doing SNL. She said yes with zero hesitation,” he wrote on Twitter. “She sang ‘New Year’s Day.’ No one had heard it. Suddenly she sings the line, ‘Squeeze my hand 3 times in the back of the taxi.’ I nearly gasped. Tears. I think everyone in the audience started sobbing. I could see Jimmy silhouetted at his desk dabbing his eyes with a tissue. We all lost it. It was a beautiful coincidence in a beautiful performance. ‘Hold on to your memories, they will hold on to you,’ Taylor sang.” “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.” See his tweets below. She sang "New Year's Day." No one had heard it. Suddenly she sings the line, "Squeeze my hand 3 times in the back of the taxi." I nearly gasped. Tears. I think everyone in the audience started sobbing. — Mike DiCenzo (@mikedicenzo) November 14, 2017 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. — Mike DiCenzo (@mikedicenzo) November 14, 2017.....»»

Mariah Carey"s Lambs Are Uniting With Taylor Swift"s Swifties To Stop Despacito From Breaking Hot 100 Record!

Taylor Swift to the rescue!! It appears as though Mariah Carey's stans are rallying behind Miz Swift as she prepares to drop the first single from Reputation on Thursday evening. Why?? Well, because, MiMi's chart topper One Sweet Day is at risk of being dethroned as the longest-running No.1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Related: [...] Taylor Swift to the rescue!! It appears as though Mariah Carey's stans are rallying behind Miz Swift as she prepares to drop the first single from Reputation on Thursday evening. Why?? Well, because, MiMi's chart topper One Sweet Day is at risk of being dethroned as the longest-running No.1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Related: Katy Perry Stans Are Feeling Mixed About The Swish Swish Vid! Before we continue, let us give you some context. Back in 1996, the famed diva collaborated with Boyz II Men for a beautiful ballad and it dominated the chart for a mind-blowing 16 weeks. Mariah has kept this record for more than 20 years!!! Now Justin Bieber's collab with Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee (Despacito, duh) is threatening Carey's record as the track has spent 15 weeks on the chart. Obviously, this fact has sent Mariah's lambs into a panic (below). i swear to god if despacito dethrones one sweet day for the longest #1 i'll officially lose faith in humanity pic.twitter.com/C8yPNbnFM2 — ava (@babydollriah) August 21, 2017 Can someone dethrone Despacito already?

Taylor Swift Teases ‘Out Of The Woods’ Music Video

Taylor Swift “won” Christmas with an adorable selfie where she was dressed as an elf. Now she’s going to “win” New Year’s Eve, too: her video, ‘Out Of The Woods,’ will debut tonight during ABC’s ‘Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve,’ hosted by Ryan Seacrest.

Now she’s going to “win” New Year’s Eve, too: her video, ‘Out Of The Woods,’ will debut tonight during ABC’s ‘Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve,’ hosted by Ryan Seacrest. She teased fans on social media with a hint of what’s to come. RELATED: Taylor Swift surprises a fan! Here’s Taylor’s epic Christmas selfie: You used to call me on my elf phone. A photo posted by Taylor Swift (@taylorswift) on Dec 24, 2015 at 10:53am PST So fun! No one can say Taylor didn’t get into the holiday spirit ;). RELATED: Taylor Swift celebrates her birthday and announces the ‘1989’ concert film for those who didn’t get a chance to see her perform live! Now here’s Taylor’s “sneak peek” from the ‘Out of the Woods’ video: Are we out of the woods yet? #OOTWMusicVideo debuts tomorrow night on New Years Rockin Eve with @ryanseacrest !! A photo posted by Taylor Swift (@taylorswift) on Dec 30, 2015 at 4:17pm PST It’s rumored that ‘Out of the Woods’ is about Taylor’s romance with Harry Styles. Taylor said she wrote the song “to track,” meaning that Jack Antoff sent her the track and the lyrics and melody came to her “immediately, in full.” Taylor explained how Jack’s track affected her: It just kind of conjured up all these feelings of anxiety I had in a relationship where everybody was watching, everybody was commenting on it. You’re constantly just feeling like, ‘Are we out of the woods yet? What’s the next thing gonna be? What’s the next hurdle we’re gonna have to jump over? Are we gonna make it to next week?’ It was interesting to write about a relationship where you’re just honestly like, ‘This is probably not gonna last, but how long is it gonna last?’ Those fragile relationships…It doesn’t mean they’re not supposed to happen. The whole time we were having happy memories or crazy memories or ridiculously anxious times, in my head it was just like, ‘Are we OK yet? Are we there yet? Are we out of this yet?'” I’m sure the ‘Out Of the Woods’ video will be just as big as all of Taylor’s other videos! Photos by FAMEFLYNET.....»»

Taylor Swift Testifies On Day Four Of Her Groping Trial: "He Grabbed My Bare Ass"

Taylor Swift is standing her ground. On Thursday, the Blank Space singer took the stand to give testimony in the groping trial against a Denver based DJ, named David Mueller. As you likely know, the A-lister has accused Mueller of sexually assaulting her as he allegedly "grabbed her ass" during a meet and greet back in [...] Taylor Swift is standing her ground. On Thursday, the Blank Space singer took the stand to give testimony in the groping trial against a Denver based DJ, named David Mueller. As you likely know, the A-lister has accused Mueller of sexually assaulting her as he allegedly "grabbed her ass" during a meet and greet back in 2013. Related: Leah Remini Wants Scientology Investigated By The Feds The controversy took a messy turn when the scandalized DJ sued Swift for slander, but the hitmaker hit back with a sexual assault and battery countersuit. While David has denied the butt grabbing allegations, Taylor's testimony paints an entirely different picture. Under oath, the pop star stated that the action was "a definite grab." The chart topper continued: "It was a definite grab, [a] very long grab. It was long enough for me to be completely sure it was intentional. He stayed on my bare ass cheek as I lurched away from him uncomfortably. The first couple of milliseconds, I thought it must be a mistake. I moved to the side very quickly... It was a very shocking thing that I have never dealt with before…He grabbed my ass underneath my skirt. It was underneath my skirt." When asked if David touched her at any other point during the meet and greet, the 27-year-old reiterated that the radio professional was "too busy grabbing her ass under her skirt to touch her anywhere else." What a horrible scenario. On how she reacted to the incident, Taylor explained: "After this happened, a light switched off in my personality. I just said in a monotone voice thank you for coming and then they were gone." We're sure she was in shock. Not to mention, Calvin Harris' ex defended that she didn't stop the meet and greet as she didn't want to ruin the experience for other fans patiently waiting. The Grammy winner went on to call the groping incident a particularly "devious and sneaky act" because there was a wall behind her, leaving her with no witnesses. When pressed as to why no one else saw the grab, Taylor hit back with: "Your client could have taken a normal photo with me." You tell 'em, girl! Thankfully, a photographer captured the moment where Taylor seemingly reacted to the alleged assault. Apparently, Taylor had the following conversation with the photographer: "I said, 'That dude just grabbed my ass,' and she said 'I know exactly which one you are talking about I have the pic.'" Per Swift, her bodyguard did not intervene as the situation "was horrifying, shocking, and [one they] had never experienced before." The blonde songstress is confident in her account of what occurred as David and his girlfriend seemed intoxicated at the time of the meet and greet.

Swift specified: "I have experienced every awkward encounter.. this was not jostling. we were perfectly in position for the photograph to be taken... He did not touch my rib, he did not touch my hand, he grabbed my bare ass." In regards to Mueller getting fired following their meeting, Taylor has little sympathy for the industry vet as she retorted: "I am not going to allow your my client to make me feel like it is anyway my fault because it isn't." Although Taylor claims to have no opinion about David as a person, she says she feels what he did was "despicable." When asked by David's attorney if the grab could've been done by someone else, Taylor quipped: "He had a handful of my ass. I know it was him... I wouldn't need that photograph. I could have picked him out of a line of a thousand." Oh snap! Mueller's lawyer then went on to ask Taylor about her love of "police shows," to which she acknowledged: "Yesss! I named my cat after Olivia Benson on Law & Order." We're sorry, WHAT is the point of this question?? Just because someone loves crime procedurals doesn't mean they want to experience court drama IRL. Unsurprisingly, the lawyer pivoted away from this line of questioning and once again asked Taylor if she should look at other photos from the event. Clearly frustrated with the line of questioning, the starlet relayed: "I know exactly who did this, this is what happened. It happened to me. I know it was him." Another sassy moment from the testimony came when the opposing counsel asked if Taylor could see the incident with her own eyes and she said she couldn't as her "ass is in the back of [her] body." Girl, we'd be so done too. After a little under an hour on the stand, Mueller's lawyer concluded his questioning and Taylor's attorney announced he had no questions to ask. Miz Swift has since been excused from the stand. Be sure to stay tuned for any updates about the trial HERE. [Image via WENN.].....»»
