Taylor Swift is set to release a new Christmas song tomorrow called Christmas Tree Farm.

The Lover singer announced the festive news this afternoon and we seriously need to calm down.

She stunned fans when she revealed that the Christmas song will be released at midnight tonight (in the USA)

And that’s not all.

The All Too Well singer is also releasing a music video which is made entirely from home videos and there’s no doubt it’s going to turn us into blubbering messes.

She jokingly posted a video of her and her cats to share the news.

The 29-year-old spoke to her pets in the witty clip, “I know this is pretty wild but I’ve just written a Christmas song. I feel like it’s weird to wait a year to put it out. So, I don’t know what to do.” 

Her three pets completely ignored her so Taylor decided to release the song herself, “When in doubt, ask the itty bitty pretty kitty committee,” she wrote alongside the video.

She added, “When they shun you with silence, ambivalence, and judgmental brush offs … just put the song out anyway.”

Forget about Bublé and Mariah Carey! Taylor’s festive tune is bound to be a major hit. It'll be on repeat for the rest of December.

I’m counting down the minutes to its release.

Dozens of celebrities have supported Taylor Swift after she revealed that Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta have banned her from performing her own music at the upcoming American Music Awards. The pair have also refused to let the Lover singer use her music in a Netflix documentary about her life.

Gigi Hadid, Halsey, Lily Allen and Hilary Duff have all voiced their support, as well as Taylor’s best friend, Selena Gomez.

The Lose You To Love Me singer penned an emotional open letter to Braun and Borchetta, begging them to have a change of heart.

She wrote, “My heart is so heavy right now. It makes me sick and extremely angry (I don’t mind if there may be retaliation) this is my opinion. It’s greed, manipulation and power. There is no heart or thought of anyone else’s. No respect for the words my friend has written since she was a 14 year old in her bedroom.

Selena opened up about the strong friendship she has with the Grammy award winner.

“I listened to Fearless before it came out and I just remember us jumping on a bed and she was just sparkling- so proud of her diary being read by the whole world.”

Selena reflected on the days before Taylor released her album Fearless: “Nervous of people not liking it but that became one of the biggest records- an album that saved so many young women who felt alone. Have a broken heart. Who were healing. Those who felt invisible. Gave a voice to those who didn’t know that they had one all along. Believing in dreams again.

Last night's MTV VMA Awards ceremony was the 10th anniversary of the Kanye West versus Taylor Swift (and the world) drama which is engrained in pop culture history nowadays.

Most of us can remember the moment perfectly, when Kanye West stormed the stage after Taylor Swift won Video of the Year and proclaimed that Beyonce deserved to win.

Taylor hinted about that fateful day on the red carpet, saying; “You never know what can happen on this show, as I’ve learned.”

Beyonce allegedly cried backstage, Pink got in Kanye's face and absolutely ROASTED him (deserved) and the make-up between Beyonce and Taylor onstage after Beyonce wins the overall award was all created by the producers.

But where was Kanye West last night? According to reports, Kanye was at a Cheesecake Factory in Ohio this weekend instead of celebrating the monumental anniversary. 

Page Six is claiming that he was there Friday and Saturday night, and then stayed in Ohio for a unique Sunday Session to honour the victims of the recent mass shooting.

His wife Kim Kardashian shared an Instagram Story of Kanye “feeling the vibe” during the service, and also shared a snap of the choir singing to Dave Chapelle for his birthday;

Taylor shared her diary entry from the aftermath of the MTV VMAs back in 2009 with her fans, writing;

“Ahh… the things that can change in a week… Let's just say, if you had told me Kanye West would have been the number one focus of my week, the media, and my part in the VMAs I would've looked at you cross-eyed.

And if you had told me that one of the biggest stars in music was going to jump up onstage and announce that he thought I shouldn’t have won on live television, I would’ve said; 'That stuff doesn’t really happen in real life.’ Well… apparently… It does.”

Taylor picked up the Video of the Year award last night for You Need To Calm Down, bringing up all of the LGBTQ stars from the video and giving them their own Moonmen statuettes with their names on them.

The emotions were running high, with Taylor also opening the show with a mash-up of You Need To Calm Down and Lover after her album has sold over two million copies within 24 hours of its release. Seems like she's doing pretty well?

With the MTV VMAs come a variety of awkward and memorable moments, some questionable fashion choices and malfunctions, not to mention performances from big names.

First thing's first, Mrs Missy Elliott had the best performance of the night with a medley of her hits, including a rake of incredible dancers and costume changes. We were absolutely FLOORED;

The legend of hip-hop picked up her Michael Jackson Vanguard Award in style, belting out her latest banger Throw It Back, before adding in Pass That Dutch, Lose Control and Get Ur Freak On.

Oh and did we mention that she brought back Alyston Stoner to perform with her, 16 years after the original child star appeared in her music video;

 Her 2001 album Miss E was ground-breaking, and she was truly deserving of the gong which was handed to her by Cardi B; "I promised I wouldn't cry this time because I cry every awards!" she said."

Alyson has still got some serious moves, ain't nobody arguing about that.

Another star of the show was Lizzo, brandishing her bejewelled tequila bottle because she's 100 percent THAT b*tch;

Her performance of Good As Hell and Truth Hurts brought the house down, with a giant inflatable ass in the background and a self-love pep talk;

Joe Jonas' arm got some deserved attention;

Normani (of Fifth Harmony fame) slayed her set, performing Motivation and showing everyone that the moves from the incredible music video were REAL and her gymnastic abilities aren't to be doubted;

Miley Cyrus gave a hugely emotional black-and-white performance of Slide Away, changing the lyrics from "We've grown now" to "I've grown now"…shade at Liam Hemsworth?

She also debuted a brand new tattoo to mark their split;

Tana Mongeau tried to copy our homegirl Britney Spears by bringing a snake to the ceremony, and people…forgot…who the OG was?!?

Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes caused our heart rates to skyrocket with their sensuous performance of Seniorita, but Sophie Turner's reaction to their almost-kiss is all of us;

This powerful metaphor by Taylor Swift about the faux pas of rewearing outfits, or even wearing similar ones;

Taylor opened the show with a beautiful performance of You Need To Calm Down and Lover, later partying with Gigi and Bella Hadid and picking up the Best Video award for her LGBTQ+ colour palette video for You Need To Calm Down.

Ariana Grande….well, she WON;

Grande wasn't present at the awards ceremony, but picked up the most gongs on the night regardless. Deservedly so, 2019 has been Ari's year.

Okay this tweet made us emotional. All of the participants from Taylor's iconic LGBTQ music video received two Moonmen with their names on it, and she refused to perform without this request being granted. Hero.

Cardi B picked up the award for Best Hip-Hop, and her impassioned speech had us all laughing;

Queen Latifah randomly riding up to the ceremony on a motorcycle, wearing a bandana, was quite the moment;

Last but not least, here is the wholesome reaction of Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas when Taylor Swift won Best Video…They are just TOO PURE;

We're exhausted from the drama, the fashion, the dance moves, the POWER moments from the show. There didn't seem to be any celebrity beef for once, maybe it's the vegan lifestyle getting to everyone?

The only sad point was that Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes, after all of the build-up, actually didn't kiss. Throughout the whole ceremony, they didn't.

Outside of the ceremony, all we do is see them kiss but they can't give us PDA when we actually ask for it? Cruel.

Taylor Swift is allegedly intending to re-record new versions of her old songs after Scooter Braun bought her entire back catalogue of music.

Swift revealed back in June that the masters of her early music had been sold to the manager by her former record label, Big Machine Records, and claimed she wasn't informed about it.

The Lover singer accused Braun of  "incessant, manipulative bullying", which he has denied. Braun manages stars like Justin Bieber, who controversially leapt to his defence, Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato.

Swift has said that she "absolutely" plans to re-record music from her first six albums, which were massively successful.

During an interview with the CBS Sunday Morning show, she was asked whether she planned to re-record the old material so she could own the rights to new versions.

"Yeah, absolutely," she replied. The singer began her career as a teenager, and released six albums with the Nashville label. Braun's Ithaca Holdings acquired Big Machine Records in June.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@scooterbraun) on

Swift accused him of attempting to "dismantle" her "musical legacy". Braun was later supported by Lovato and Bieber, who claimed Swift was just out "to get sympathy".

Taylor signed with Universal Music last year, writing: "I am now signed to a label that believes I should own anything I create." Halsey and Kelly Clarkson both stood up for Swift online, saying that women like Swift deserve to control their own art.

Artists including Squeeze, Def Leppard and ELO have previously re-recorded their hits so they can own the rights to the new versions, meaning they get control over how they are used, and get paid if they are sold or used for things like TV adverts.

A sneak peak at Cats, the film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber and TS Elliot's infamous musical, has dropped and the reactions have been less than positive.

The clip offers us the first footage of the all-star casts in all their feline glory, created using motion capture techniques which director Tom Hooper (The King's Speech) refers to as 'digital fur technology'.

The incredible cast includes Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson, Jason Derulo, Judi Dench, Taylor Swift, James Corden, Ian McEllen, Rebel Wilson and Idris Elba, who all belt our the film's anthems.

Unfortunately, the first furry glimpses of the upcoming live-action remake have left some viewers unhappy after the feline creatures were described online as 'cursed' and nightmarish.

The transmogrified CGI human-cat hybrids were unveiled last night, with the Universal Pictures film landing in cinemas on December 20 of this year.

Hamilton Tony winner Andy Blankenbuehler choreographs the movie, having worked on the 2016 Broadway revival. Lloyd Webber has also apparently written a new song for the film.

Many viewers found the mutated dancing cats to be troubling to watch. The story revolves around a tribe of cats called the Jellicles, which faces a series of challenging life-altering choices one fateful night.

Fans didn't appreciate beloved actors in CGI feline form, especially the revered cinema veteran Judi Dench:

Many Twitter users wondered why the stars didn't just wear catsuits, like in the stage show. The word 'abomination' was even used…

"A demented dream ballet" is possibly one of the greatest phrases we've heard yet: 

Important questions were raised: 

Conspiracy theories were introduced:

The working world ceased to exist for a moment from the distraction:

Some even wondered if the trailer was so horrifying, it could bestow a curse on all who watched it:

The only positive taken from the whole thing is that Grumpy Cat died just in time to never have to witness the terror:

We're not even sure if we'd make it through the cinematic experience of the movie, would you be willing to see the flick this December?

If it's in 3D, God help our souls. Fur-get it as soon as your eyes witness Taylor Swift as a cat wearing kitten heels.

We've been eagerly anticipating Ed Sheeran's entry to the dramatic feud of Taylor Swift versus Scooter Braun.

For anyone unaware of the insane situation, Taylor Swift released a scathing indictment of the music manager after he acquired her life's work (six multi-platinum albums) in a $300 million deal.

She was left feeling "sad" and "grossed out" after a man who has allegedly been "manipulating and bullying" her for years gained control over her years of hard work.

https://taylorswift.tumblr.com/post/185958366550/for-years-i-asked-pleaded-for-a-chance-to-own-my

Taylor's fans were quick to point out that numerous powerful men in the music industry were keeping a firm silence on the whole drama, while women took sides with Scooter or Taylor.

Sia, Demi Lovato and Yael showed support for Scooter, while Halsey, Cara Delevigne and Miley Cyrus showed their team flags were for Taylor.

One friend of Taylor whose silence has spoken volumes was Ed Sheeran. Shawn Mendes also was an opener for the singer, so his silence is noticeable. 

Her fans are furious at men in Taylor's life who haven't publicly supported her, given how large and influential their platforms are.

However, Ed Sheeran has now responded to the spamming of his Instagram by confirming that he has been talking directly to the You Need To Calm Down singer behind the scenes.

"I've been speaking directly to her, like I always do," Ed replied to a fan, @martinamalcotti_ on Instagram.

Time will tell whether or not he will publicly express his views on the matter, but history shows he tries to stay out of any Hollywood music industry drama.

The pair collaborated on numerous projects together, such as the adorable Everything Has Changed video featuring mini Taylor and Ed.

Both artists have been friends for years, so we're assuming he's supporting her in private. We certainly hope he is, anyway.

Choreographer and dancer Emma Portner has called out Justin Bieber for the way she was treated after choreographing his Purpose World Tour in 2016.

"I regret working under your name," the 24-year-old, who is married to Ellen Page, said via her Instagram Stories. She put the I Don't Care singer on blast after his defence of Scooter Braun. 

"I gave your universe my naive body, creativity, time and effort. Twice. For content you made millions off of. While I made zilch," she captioned her post, according to PopCrave

She also claimed that the 25-year-old singer barely even paid her "minimum wage" for the hours of work she put in.

"I couldn't afford to eat. I was sweeping studio floors to be able to practice my own craft," she wrote. "The way you degrade women is an abomination."

The public post comes just two days after Taylor Swift called out the singer's manager, Scooter Braun, and the Biebs subsequently defended him on social media.

He added, "What were you trying to accomplish by posting that blog? Seems to me like it was to get sympathy. You also knew that in posting that your fans would go and bully Scooter."

The Drew House founder definitely made his opinions clear about the Taylor and Scooter situation, but he hasn't commented on Emma Portner's claims as of yet.

Justin Bieber has turned to Instagram to defend his veteran manager, Scooter Braun, after Taylor Swift posted a scathing indictment criticising him for "manipulative bullying".

Braun recently acquired Big Machine Records, which holds the rights to Swift's first six multi-platinum albums. In response, the singer wrote an emotional Tumblr message explaining that this is the worst possible outcome.

She also referenced an Instagram image by Bieber featuring Braun and Kanye West, captioned; "Taylor, what up." Swift took the image as a message of intimidation, with Braun's two artists mocking her.

The photo came after Kim Kardashian posted a recording of Taylor allegedly consenting to Kanye using her name for his music video and in the song Famous.

The manager has been employed by Ariana Grande (but was fired and subsequently rehired later…), Kanye West, Justin Bieber and Demi Lovato.

Bieber began his own post of a years-old photo of the pair by apologising for the earlier image, writing

“Hey Taylor. First of all i would like to apologise for posting that hurtful Instagram post, at the time i thought it was funny but looking back it was distasteful and insensitive.

“I have to be honest though it was my caption and post that I screenshotted of scooter and Kanye that said ‘Taylor Swift what up’ he didn’t have anything to do with it and it wasn’t even a part of the conversation in all actuality he was the person who told me not to joke like that.”

The Love Yourself singer continued;

“Scooter has had your back since the days you graciously let me open up for you! As the years have passed we haven’t crossed paths and gotten to communicate our differences, hurts or frustrations.

"So for you to take it to social media and get people to hate on Scooter isn’t fair. What were you trying to accomplish by posting that blog? Seems to me like it was to get sympathy. You also knew that in posting that your fans would go and bully Scooter."

Bieber also claims that he tried to open direct lines of communication, after criticising Swift for 'defacing' Braun's character.

“Anyway, One thing I know is both scooter and I love you. I feel like the only way to resolve conflict is through communication. So banter back and forth online i don't believe solves anything,” he continued.

“I’m sure Scooter and I would love to talk to you and resolve any conflict, pain or or any feelings that need to be addressed. Neither scooter or I have anything negative to say about you we truly want the best for you," he added.

"I usually don’t rebuttal things like this but when you try and deface someone I love's character that's crossing a line."

Braun’s wife, Yael Cohen Braun, also came to his defence online, writing to her Instagram followers; “I have never been one for the public airing of laundry, but when you attack my husband… here we go.”

Yael Braun disputes Taylor's depiction of the conflict, emphasising that Swift was given fair notice of the deal between Scooter's Ithaca Holdings and Big Machine records;

“Interesting that the man you’re so ‘grossed out’ by believed in you more than you believe in yourself,” she wrote. “And girl, who are you to talk about bullying? The world has watched you collect and drop friends like wilted flowers. MY husband is anything but a bully.”

Many have defended Braun online, with supporters like Demi Lovato and Bieber's attorney Aaron Rosenberg speaking out against Taylor.

Demi Lovato wrote; 

“Y‘all can come after me all you want but I’m always gonna stay loyal to my team. I value loyalty more than most people in this world and if my name is gonna be brought into conversations I’m gonna stand up for myself and the ones on my team."

Taylor is clearly devastated that Scooter has acquired the rights to her first six albums and life's work after he seemingly abetted Kim Kardashian and Kanye West drama, saying;

"Essentially, my musical legacy is about to lie in the hands of someone who tried to dismantle it."

The drama is piping hot…Who do you believe; Team Scooter (Biebs, Kanye, Demi etc) or Team Taylor?

Taylor Swift has just released the colourful explosion that is the You Need To Calm Down video, filled with LGBTQ+ icons and Easter eggs galore.

Her anti-homo/bi/queer/transphobia anthem has emerged in the midst of Pride month, and has divided fans online.

Some are claiming that a heterosexual, cis-white woman speaking for the LGBTQ+ community and profiting from the song is problematic.

Others are pointing out her recent activism and dedication to donating funds towards LGBTQ+ charities. (Almost $100,000, if we're counting)

The term 'queer-baiting' has been thrown around, which is basically a marketing technique in the entertainment industry which hints at same-sex relationships or gender queer relationships, but doesn't actually deliver them for the purpose of profit.

Is Taylor simply jumping on the 'Gays Are Great' bandwagon for the sake of her image, and upcoming album release? However, any visibility is good visibility, and she's giving members of the queer community a chance to shine in the video. 

So many celebrities showed their fierce personalities in the latest music video, with ALL of the Queer Eye 'Fab 5', Ellen DeGeneres, Hayley 'Lesbian Jesus' Kiyoko, Laverne Cox and Billy Porter flaunting their stuff.

However, Taylor has never openly discussed her sexuality, and we can't make any assumptions, but fans have viewed her hair in the music video as a clue about her possible bisexuality.

As we all know, Taylor hides an array of meanings within her music videos, and her hair simply CANNOT be an accident. Her barnet is actually the colours of the upside-down bisexual flag, hello hint? 

The bi Pride flag features pink, purple and blue stripes, and bisexual Twitter has damn near lost their minds. Representation is incredibly important, and these fans definitely confirm that.

"I’m just gonna sit in the corner and point out that Taylor Swift’s hair is the colour of the bisexual pride flag," wrote one hyped fan.

Another used caps lock to a ridiculous extent;

"WILL I EVER SHUT UP ABOUT THE FACT THAT TAYLOR'S HAIR IS THE UPSIDE DOWN BISEXUAL FLAG PROBABLY NOT OKAY, RIP ME."

"It has to mean SOMETHING!" We have to agree with Mackenzie here, who appears to have been hyperventilating.

There seems to be plenty of gasping going on over at Twitter HQ…The excitement is palpable. 

Is Taylor a bisexual icon or just an ally supporting her pals at Pride?

She has previously discussed the difference between queerbaiting and ally-ship, so she definitely knows the difference.

Either way, for someone with a platform as big as Taylor's to give a nod to a marginalised community is hugely meaningful.

Visibility to heavily stigmatised groups of people will always be special, so we see nothing wrong with Taylor's music video.

Taylor Swift is set to turn 30-years-old on December 13 and apparently this means she has to settle down and have kids.

When women reach a certain age they are bombarded with questions about their family plans, how many kids they want to have and when they’re going to get married.

We’ve all experienced this at some point in our lives, whether it’s the awfully nosey aunty asking when you and your beau are going to tie the knot or the obnoxious neighbour passing remarks about how you ought to hurry up and ‘squeeze a few puppies out’.

During an interview with Deutsche Presse-Agentur, a journalist asked the Shake It Off singer if she was planning on settling down to start a family now that she is approaching her 30th birthday.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Taylor Swift (@taylorswift) on

Swift replied with grace and simply stated: "I really do not think men are asked that question when they turn 30. So I'm not going to answer that question now."

The presumption that every single woman on the planet wants to have a bump and ring on her finger by the age of 30 is beyond dated, and extremely sexist.

Did it ever occur to those who ask these absurd questions that some women don’t want to get married, others may be happier single or simply don’t believe in marriage?

Marriage is one thing, but quizzing women about their family plans and ‘advising’ them to get pregnant at this age is simply ignorant. You never know what is going on in someone’s life, especially when it comes to their fertility.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Shravani (@silence.n.patience) on

Millions of people struggle with infertility around the world. An estimated 10 percent of Irish women suffer from polycystic ovaries, which makes it harder for women to become pregnant and increases the risk of developing complications during pregnancy.

Other women simply don’t want to have children and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that decision.

Taylor Swift’s response to this rude question was completely fair and I couldn’t applaud her more for it. It is a personal question that can make women feel pressured, uncomfortable and distressed.

I’m sure the interviewer didn’t mean to cause offence but his ignorant notion has certainly highlighted a vital conversation about the expectations placed on women when they reach their 30s.
