Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal sure do drink a lot of coffee. It’s good to see a couple who don’t always have to meet at bars and clubs, but prefer daytime dating over a latte.
Prince William and Kate Middleton loom large too in American consciousness with the impending Wedding of the decade for the World.

Everything about Los Angeles talk show host Chelsea Handler is hot these days.
Above, Chelsea managed to get Taylor Swift onto her show to confess she’s a fan. Handler is having Thanksgiving holidays with Jennifer Aniston in Los Cabos, Mexico (see pics below) and even her co-hosts/ writers of The Chelsea Lately Show are appearing in Hollywood comedies like Morning Glory and No Strings Attached. This is what can happen to girls who are half Catholic, half Jewish from New Jersey and who are funny and date their boss. Love it.
In fairness, I’m running this Chelsea Handler spotlight post today as Chelsea’s Boss’ Boss of E! Entertainment Television is Comcast and NBC/ Universal, who are broadcasting The Rugby World Cup in America next year. This makes them super hot for that pioneering sports spirit. By proxi, Chelsea Handler and her team too. Nice work from Chelsea all round in L.A! A funny girl.

Gun dealers’ dealings. GOP slipping in popularity. And Country hottie, Taylor Swift makes a red lip stick appearance too. In a wee bit of cultural projection perhaps, The Post claims that the young men of Japan are seeking a new model?Japanese traditionally work for the same company they first start working for, their whole lives. They have guaranteed employment forever. Not many Americans can say this in the current economy, so this article perhaps could be an interesting read.
Meanwhile, the hot topics on the posts website that the people are reading are these:
- New Elite

- World Series schedule

You know it’s a fierce publicity game in Hollywood – when three men – have to be pimped to get one diva – onto the cover of People Magazine. Swift takes the cover of People Magazine. Ruthless publicity!
‘Publicity Polygamy’ in Hollywood looks like Taylor Swift today. Dropping three celebrity boys names, so press can use old pics of them too – Swift’s switched out ‘fake’ take on Sisters Wives reality TV series interest, has the country star casting herself as a judge of three men she’s dated. Cool or not?
In West Hollywood, such behavior would get you stoned by corn chips at Merricks: Tex Mex on all-you-can-eat “Taco Tuesdays.” However, knowing Hollywood lads, all these three boys, don’t care, they’ll take the publicity Swift is generating for them, so they can have a slack week. Here’s the story.
Taylor Swift - the Country star who eats men who date her or songwrite with her, for publicity like vampira – has this to say:
“Speaking in an interview in the new edition of People magazine out this Friday (22.10.10), she said: “Being single is wonderful and I love it. I don’t ever have a morning where I wake up and say, ‘I really need to find a boyfriend today.’”
However, Taylor — who claims dealing with heartache when dating, and turmoiled emotions that go with it, explained: “I will say everything in my music. There’s been extreme joy, extreme pain, extreme curveballs. Sometimes when things impact you so intensely, it takes writing a song to get over them.”
I agree with Swift’s statement. She can not handle a man. What she needs is a ‘boy poodle’ whose collar she can yank on, when her fame addiction requires. Seriously, this diva is not man safe. Joking. Good PR to flog her new album though.
Jesting aside, strong country women, are much needed, no matter how badly Swift plays it out in the press. This is her message to her target female audience. A good one, if you live in the country, the reason why I’m running this story today.

It’s a true fact that country girls are masters at bagging a cowboy, once spurned in a country music ballad. This always wins them mega awards at the CMA’s and radio play too. Country folk are very empathetic people, and love an artist who appeals to their empathy capacities as an audience.
However, when it comes to singer songwriter (darling) Taylor Swift she needs to change the record. After getting ‘interrupted’ by Kanye West at the VMA’s two awards shows back, Swift catapulted into an untouchable spotlight, where to bag her, was a complete no-no. It’s a tactic we’ve seen Sandra Bullock use too, playing the empathy card, with her “messy” divorce from her not-even-real marriage to that bad *ss tattoo-ed ex-husband, Jesse James‘ back yard couch casting flings with girls more tattoo-ed then him. Jesse prompted Joy Behar to comment on The View, “I can see the attraction, with James and Michelle McGee. It would take them a whole day to read each other’s bodies.” Funny, like a day at the library for a bogan biker.
However, when it comes to Taylor Swift, now writing a song, where she bags John Mayer, one can’t help but see this team effort as being a little bit ‘wanna-be-Kanye-bad’ some more, from these two musical kids. (more…)
Aint that the truth. That makes life, so much more exciting to live and be a part of today.
Who wants to be predictable, when we could be missing the new discoveries of the century? Risk it all, I say, like all of the explorers and discovers before us did. In that moment we are the future.
Having said that, I love predicatable people. They’re different.
Taylor Swift represents the vibe of many young people today, looking on at America, asking what is love? It can be confusing, especially for teens. Here’s one answer. Even when being tested and defined, in spirit, Love goes Up. Our job is to believe in love and take others up to.

In casting my pig-styed eye over The Washington Post today, here’s what’s going on:
Elena Kagan lands the cover photo. Guatemala thinks they were Vietman, but in the 40s. In an ironic twist out, the Taliban‘s propaganda machine is allegedly much bigger than Americas? And poses a threat? No!
Why Bank of America is the biggest bank is a mystery, its the worst. Fed’s are at the ready to act and save the economy. A CNN anchor gets fired for refusing to see that Jews are a minority. Let alone smart, in key media roles. In a way, that’s a blessing for CNN, because they desperately need the ratings right now. And a rat – replaces the panda bear from yesterday.
Riveting. Thanks Washington. These stories are what the people of D.C are most looking at though at time of writing, on the paper’s website:

Quote 1: “I wrote a song for Taylor Swift that’s so beautiful and I want her to have it. If she won’t take it then I’ll perform it for her,” said West via Twitter, heading towards his 5th album’s release.
Quote 2: “She had nothing to do with my issues with award shows. She had no idea what hit her. She’s just a lil girl with dreams like the rest of us,” West said, as he does his bit to keep Swift 13 years of age for her fans.
Quote 3: “It is distasteful to cut people off as a general rule. What’s the point of dressing tastefully if I’m going to act the complete opposite? Yes I was that guy. A 32 year old child. When I woke up from the crazy nightmare I looked in the mirror and said GROW UP KANYE … I take the responsibility for my actions. Beyonce didn’t need that. MTV didn’t need that and Taylor and her family friends and fans definitely didn’t want or need that.”"–CBS Celebrity Circuit News
Love this kid’s chutzpah. Kanye is always so funny.

Recalls Judy Collins ”[Leonard] said, ‘I can’t sing and I can’t play the guitar, and I don’t know if this is a song [before singing Suzanne]. ”I said, ‘Leonard, it’s a song and I’m recording it tomorrow.’”
Thank goodness for onto it woman with good taste in what a song can be. It’s good Collins never watched this boat go by and she recorded him. Leonard Cohen is a genius. A poet from Canada who does the art of cool, calm and uber chill–like no other. Here’s Cohen performing Democracy. Just for my reality TV show watchers. I See You and I love You anyway… too. May the vote of the people always win out, regardless. :)

What were the kids of West Hollywood up to last night for Cinco de Mayo? Nada much but a little bit of tequila, lime, salt and good old fashioned rock n’ roll –along the bar tops of Los Angeles. It’s kinda of like the movie Coyote Ugly that starred Tyra Banks–but the flipped out version.
Here’s bandito boi (top) who was dancing to Glee‘s It’s My Life/ Confessions -Part II song at Mickeys when this photograph was snapped.
And, here’s cowboy rocker (bottom) dancing to Pour Some Sugar On Me. The Taylor Swift with Def Leppard version at Eleven. Lyrics to both songs follow after the jump:
If there’s one thing about the kids of America–they always know how to have their fun. And… isn’t it cool, to see West Hollywood having a good push to grow the rock n’ roll genre. You’ve gotta love this city–such good sports!
[If you are a member of the GOP party and are obsessed with West Hollywood's cultural life and night spots, (as my blog stats tell me), then when you come to West Hollywood, make sure you stay at The Chamberlain Hotel--which is walking distance from most night life hot spots --that are world famous in LA.

This is a good thing as Perry has never performed before in a venue as large as The Staples Center, so it’s good practice for her and her upcomong album’s future tour. Go girls!
Kiwis in New Zealand love love love Katy Perry! She’s a stunner.

Being chola is all the rage for pop divas, trying to expand their music markets. Latino kids, are the next big youth audience market in the US of A demographically.
Tweeted Taylor Swift: “I just used a Sharpie as eye liner in the airplane bathroom about 22 hours ago from Echofo
Fellow pop star peer, Katy Perry just clocked Ms Swift with this response: “That’s so chola of you! RT @taylorswift13: I just used a Sharpie as eye liner in the airplane bathroom.”
Next, Lady Gaga‘s going to chime in with… “get off my Sharpie eyebrow situation turf, you try-hards!” I kid. Any Chola references are great for where America is really at today for Latinas of the USA. So go T.S and K.P for the shout out.

What would Valentines Day be in America without some vintage Stefani Germanotta before she worked out what the purpose of fame was for. Here’s Lady Gaga in her early years. Enjoy!
It makes me laugh, that Lady Gaga was so fixated with singing about Hollywood until she made it here and discovered the powers of a plastic surgeon and a nose job, then got beyond that to see Haiti. For her adolescent star celebrity growing pains, Hollywood loves Lady Gaga. :)
The Truth is, even as a teen Lady Gaga could still sing better than 2010′s Grammys Queen, Taylor Swift. Isn’t America a hoot! :)
Happy Valentines Hollywood (and our observers!). xox

Well… not exactly. But Ryan Kwanten‘s comment about Taylor Swift at the Producer’s Guild Awards recently, where he said:
“I’d like Taylor [to guest star on True Blood]… That’d be kind of cool…“I get the feeling that she likes to break down boundaries. She set a bunch of records, so why not get into the acting world and see if she can’t tackle that, too.”
That’s Hollywood double-talk for Taylor Swift is a bit of a celebrity vampire. (more…)
Ladies having fun. What a line up of divas… as The Grammys after parties continued well into the wee hours of the morning, Sunday night.

Taylor Swift’s new single, Today was a fairytale, from the Valentine’s Day motion picture soundtrack, is set to knock Ke$ha‘s Tik Tok song off the #1 position on the charts.
In Fairytale‘s first day on iTunes, the single has already gone to #1 most downloaded song today on iTunes charts. 71% of all music is purchased by downloads, so this fares well from the country pop singer.
Press play if you haven’t heard the song already and enjoy!
