Makes You Wonder If Taylor Swift Will Trademark “New Lady” too.

This is an interesting turn of events…remember how Calvin Harris was seen leaving a massage parlor not too long ago? Well now it appears Taylor is moonlighting as a masseuse in Dubai.

or at least that’s what this promo card would have you believe.

Although it’s not cool to use a celebrity image especially for a handsy service, I actually feel kinda sorry for Magic Touch…anyone oblivious enough to use a celebrity image for a business probably doesn’t realize the legal wrath of Taylor’s legal squad.

Something tells me this won’t have a happy ending.

HeyO. Get it? Massage parlor? Happy “ending”??….forget it :/

Will Taylor Swift Trademark Her Trademark Facial Expression?

Today I begin my 26th year of freaking out over stuff.

With Taylor expanding her ever-growing list of trademarked words/phrases ie:

* This Sick Beat
* Swiftmas
* 1989
* Blank Space

One has to wonder if she will start owning facial expressions too?

She could own this one for sure, as anyone can see she has been doing it longer and way more often than you.

He’s Back, And I Bet You Didn’t Even Know You Missed Him

I’m talking about Psy, of course – the K-Pop artist who brought us Gangnam Style in 2012. His new song, Daddy, isn’t quite as catchy, but the video is hard to look away from. Mainly because nearly every character in it has Psy’s face.

Who knew he was such a big Will.i.am fan?

By the way, Gangnam Style is STILL the most viewed video ever on youtube. As of today, it has over 2.4 BILLION views – that’s over a billion more views than the #2 video, Taylor Swift‘s Blank Space.

Let’s see if we can bump it up to 2.5 billion by watching it a few more times today, for old times’ sake.

Where The Hell Was Taylor Swift?

The 3+ hour spectacle that is the American Music Awards just wrapped up without a single Taylor Swift sighting – she wasn’t even in the audience for a reaction shot when One Direction sang that song that Harry Styles wrote about her. She clearly wasn’t in the building. So where was she?

Best guess? New Zealand. And I only know this thanks to some intrepid twitter reporters.


So it seems like she was spotted in Auckland this morning. Could be she’s just taking a well-deserved vacation after wrapping up her 1989 World Tour. She might also be hanging out with one of her innumerable BFFs, Lorde.

Luckily, Hailee Steinfeld was on hand to dance in the audience all night, Taylor style.

Good job, squad. Review the AMAs with me this week on Today’s Hits!

This Might Be The Best ‘Lonely/Desperate’ Plea For A +1.

You know when you move somewhere new and you think it’s gonna be so easy to make friends and find a new love and then you get there and nary a friend or love in sight?

That’s how this guy feels…but unlike you, he has two tickets to see Taylor Swift hence his video plea for a +1.

Good luck Marius!! We hope a Swiftie takes the bait…an adult Swiftie that is.

Although someone should have told him to edit out the scene of him putting lotion on his back :/

Does It Seem Like I Write About Taylor Swift A Lot?

It kind of does, doesn’t it? But I promise, this blog post isn’t about my obsession with Taylor Swift.

It’s about Harry Styles’ obsession with Taylor Swift.

harry taylor

 

Flashback to fall of 2012, when Tarry (or Haylor, whatever your preference) fell for each other. Their relationship only lasted through January of 2013, but that was enough time for Taylor to source some new song material. 2 years later she released 1989, which had one track, Style, that seemed like it could have been about Harry, just a guess, IDK. Style was a pretty big hit for Tay, which is why this weekend, when One Direction released their new song Perfect, it sounded strangely familiar. Click on their smirking faces below to hear it.

Just in case you couldn’t quite tell from the song alone, check out this mashup of the two tracks that one fan created – give it at least until “You’ve got that James Dean daydream look in your eye…” vs. “But if you like causing trouble up in hotel rooms…” and tell me you don’t hear the similarities. TELL ME YOU DON’T HEAR IT.

 

For the record, Harry DID write Perfect, and says:

“‘Perfect’ is for sure a love song, but it’s quite a spontaneous love song. It’s not one about thinking through too much, being like, ‘Hey, I want to be with you for the rest of my life.’ It’s like well, you know, ‘This could be fun.’”

So this is kind of nice. They’re mutually acknowledging that they had fun together, and for once, Taylor isn’t the creepy ex who made things weird by writing a song about a guy, because he wrote one about her too. Awwww… Tay, you know what’s up.

Tay’s Got To Live With The Bad Blood Now

Get ready to switch your affiliations to #TeamKaty.

Taylor Swift came clean in her recent interview with GQ and it turns out, claiming Bad Blood was about her rift with Katy Perry was just a diversionary tactic. Regarding her statement in the September 2014 Rolling Stone feature, Taylor says:

“You’re in a Rolling Stone interview, and the writer says, ’Who is that song about? That sounds like a really intense moment from your life.’ And you sit there, and you know you’re on good terms with your ex-boyfriend, and you don’t want him — or his family — to think you’re firing shots at him. So you say, ’That was about losing a friend.’ And that’s basically all you say.”

So Katy took the fall, but according to Tay, her conscience is clear.

“I never said anything that would point a finger in the specific direction of one specific person, and I can sleep at night knowing that. I knew the song would be assigned to a person, and the easiest mark was someone who I didn’t want to be labeled with this song. It was not a song about heartbreak. It was about the loss of friendship.”

WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN???

Unfortunately for Taylor, the Internet is a thing, which means we can look back to see exactly what it is she told Rolling Stone last year.

“For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, ’Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?’… She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me.”

SOOOOO…. NOT as ambiguous as Tay might want us to believe. And more importantly, now we have to start figuring out who Bad Blood is REALLY about! Any guesses? Tweet @ParkerOnSlacker to share yours!
