Taylor Swift covers the latest issue of Billboard.
In promotion of her new album – set to break every chart record out there on October 22 – the super, duper star talks to the magazine about a number of topics related to “Red.”
Its theme: It’s all the different ways that you have to say goodbye to someone. When you’re experiencing the ups and downs of a relationship, especially when you’re 22 years old, they all strike you different ways. Every different kind of missing someone, every kind of loss – it all sounds different to me.

Let’s give the guy in the following video points for trying. And for making us crack up on multiple occasions.
Using the lyrics he has listened to in endless Taylor Swift videos, filmmaker Tommy Wooldridge tries out various pick-up lines, from telling random women they’re the teardrops on his guitar… to asking if they remember when the two of them were sitting there by the water.
He even manages to incorporate “I Knew You Were Trouble,” which only just hit iTunes!

Countess LuAnn De Lesseps is standing up for herself… by saying she never lay down with a Johnny Depp-lookalike on the latest episode of The Real Housewives of New York City.
On Monday night’s installment of this Bravo hit, Viewers watched the 47-year-old mother of two getting her flirt on with a Frenchman named Tomas who was dressed like Captain Jack Sparrow.
“You have to make a special pirate introduction,” LuAnn Tomas. “I want to be special, not like your other pirate women.”
LuAnn later knocked on Heather Thomson’s door, Tomas by her side, and then also placed a phone call theMore >
Lindsay Lohan has escaped again. She will NOT be prosecuted for her alleged role in the theft of more than $100,000 in watches and sunglasses this month.
According to the D.A.’s office, there is insufficient evidence to bring a burglary charge against the star, despite Lohan being the prime suspect in the caper.
One key component: The D.A. feels Lindsay and Sam Magid, who owns the house that was allegedly burglarized, have had a “longstanding relationship.”
Sam also did not identify the actress as a suspect and other witnesses “have refused to become involved.” Also, no suspects were foundMore >
Lindsay Lohan claims she’s been framed (there’s a freaking surprise) in the recent burglary she’s suspected of, and points the finger at Andrew Knight.
Andrew is the son of Suge Knight, FYI. Tread carefully, LiLo.
Police say Lindsay Lohan is a suspect in the theft, which took place at the lavish estate of Sam Magid, a good friend of LiLo’s, a week ago Sunday.
See if you can keep up with this strange saga:
- Magid told cops Monday that two of LiLo’s friends, one of whom is Andrew Knight, said she handed them a bag with 2-3 stolen items wrapped in a shirt that night.
- The men returned those
Mariah Carey is on board as one of the new American Idol judges. For a cool $18 million per year.
And just days after this announcement was made official, Fox came out with the first promotional picture of its new panelist. She doesn’t exactly look thrilled to have the gig, does she?
Still, no one can debate Carey’s credentials. She has sold over 200 million records worldwide and is responsible for more number-one singes than any solo artist in history.
The questions now surrounding Season 12, which executives hope will be a major bounce back from a grossly disappointing Season 11 in theMore >
Bob Welch, a musician best known for playing with iconic rock band Fleetwood Mac between 1971 and 1974, has committed suicide. He was 66.
The artist’s body was found inside his Nashville home today, police confirm, discovered there by his wife around noon local time. He reportedly shot himself in the chest and left a suicide note.
Following three years at the guitar and microphone with Fleetwood Mac, Welch formed British rock group Paris in 1976. He most well-known tracks include “Sentimental Lady” and “Ebony Eyes.”
Our thoughts go out to his family.
Justin Bieber’s working vacation in Europe continued this weekend with a stop in Italy.
After nearly causing a riot in Norway, and then running into a glass wall during a Paris show, the teenage sensation calmed things down a bit during a concert in Milan. At one point he even broke out his guitar, sat on a stool and showed off his acoustic skills.
Watch him break down “As Long As You Love Me” in this video.
The Biebs also rocked and danced out like usual, of course. Below, we’ve got another sneak peek at another overseas performanceMore >
At this stage, it’s difficult to be shocked by any elimination on American Idol.
Only five contestants remained heading into tonight, and all are quite talented, and all enjoyed mostly strong performances on Wednesday. Still, we didn’t see this ousting coming, not once Phillip was deemed safe… and Joshua… and Jessica…
It had to be Hollie going home, right?
Nope. Over 60 million votes were cast and the finalist who America sent packing was… Skylar Laine!
Yes, she struggled with “Fortunate Son,” but enough to get the boot? You tell us: Did Skylar deserve to go home at this point?

April has been a naked bonanza for Heidi Klum.
We previously saw Heidi Klum nude in Allure. Now the supermodel strips down to her birthday suit again – while painted in vibrant colors – for a new Astor campaign.
As you can see, she’s lying on the ground seductively to promote the cosmetics line, smothered in streaks of bright paint symbolizing … who knows honestly.
Just sit back, enjoy and wish she’d sit up.
“I had another fun photo shoot for Astor celebrating color,” the 38-year-old (!) mother of four (!!) wrote while sharing the above image on Twitter.
Fun is certainly one word toMore >

Seal’s split from Heidi Klum was one of the most shocking celebrity divorces in recent memory, but the parting of ways appeared to have been scandal-free.
Or was it? A new tabloid report suggests that may not be the case.
According to an alleged family insider, the couple, who married in May 2005, got into a full-blown screaming match at their L.A. home in mid-January.
A screaming match that led to even worse.
“Heidi told friends that Seal just lost it,” the insider said, according to Radar and Star. “He was screaming – and, she said, he pushed her. It was horrible.”
