Taylor Swift Applauds Gay Fan's Grindr Promotion of New Album '1989'


Maybe it was a joke, or maybe Taylor Swift's success simply has no bounds. Whatever the case may be, Tumblr user 'ughstory' posted a screenshot (above) of his Grindr conversation-turned-album promotion for the young pop singer (with caption: "Honestly why am I single..."), and Taylor took notice. 

Take 40 reports:

Once Taylor saw this, she reblogged the image and wrote "CANT (sic) STOP LAUGHING. I Will be applauding you for decades to come for this."

This story comes one day after Taylor went to #1 on iTunes in Canada after releasing 8 seconds of white noise.

Is this just the beginning of a new form of advertisement? Will Grindr be overrun with T-Swift fans? Only time will tell...

Lorde Rips Australian Radio Host for Taylor Swift Lesbian Joke


An Australian radio host got an earful from Lorde after joking about rumors that she and Taylor Swift are involved in a lesbian relationship, E! reports.

Said Kyle Sandilands of KIIS 1065's Kyle & Jackie Show:

"Are you bringing your new bestie, Taylor Swift? I see your guys' pictures everywhere. Are you guys, like, uh, are you together now?...Not together as in lesbians…I'm not talking about 'Ellen together.' I'm talking about, like, you guys are friendly, right?"

Lorde wasn't having it:

Lorde retorted, "What do you mean you're not talking about 'Ellen together?' Is there something wrong with lesbians? Is that what you're trying to say?"

Sandilands explained, "Oh my god, no, I would love that. Are you going to confirm now that you're in a lesbian relationship with her?"

"Don't ever try it. It's not working," Lorde said.

The 5 Living Presidents And A Few Celebrity Guests Recite the 'Gettysburg Address': VIDEO


Have you ever wanted to see George W. Bush, Taylor Swift, Nancy Pelosi, Usher, and President Obama united for a common cause? Now is your chance. Documentary filmmaker Ken Burns has gathered an eclectic group, including the five living presidents, to recite Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. The speech turned 150 this year and Burns has started a campaign to commemorate it.

Mashable reports:

The video is part of Burns' "Learn the Address" initiative, which he started to encourage Americans to record themselves reciting Lincoln's speech.

“It’s a complicated country with lots of points of view, but there is some glue that still holds us together and some of that glue begins ‘Four score and seven years ago,’” Burns told The New York Times.

Burns' new documentary, simply titled "The Address," will premiere on PBS this April.
