Glamour girl Swift.Taylor Swift has made it clear she writes about her romances. In March 2010, she reportedly had a brief fling with John Mayer after the two collaborated on a song together. Then seven months later, she released her album, Speak Now, which included the song "Dear John" about an older guy who broke her heart. Everyone assumed it was about Mayer — even he did, telling Rolling Stone earlier this year that it was "a really lousy thing for her to do." However, Swift says not so fast.Read More »from Taylor Swift: John Mayer is ‘presumptuous’ to think ‘Dear John’ is about him

Ke$ha on Wednesday. (PacificCoastNews.com)Ke$ha is sure to cause heart palpitations in her upcoming music video for her new single, "Die Young." On Wednesday, the pop star was spotted on the set in Los Angeles wearing what we can only describe as a black leather bodysuit with a very plunging neckline (like down to her waist) and other strategically-placed cutouts.

Bette Midler shares advice with AARP the magazine. (Dominique Charriau/Wireimage)When Bette Midler decides to give out life advice, you might as well listen. In her 66 years, the Divine Miss M has conquered stage and screen, won three Emmys, three Grammys, and a Tony, raised a daughter, stayed married for nearly 30 years, and still seems as energetic as ever. She recently shared a few words of wisdom with AARP the Magazine, some of which were about finally stopping to smell the roses.
"When you have had your head down doing something — even something you love, love, love — and you finally pick your head up and see the world around you, it's just so beautiful," the singer/actress says in the magazine's October/November issue. "It's just … oh, my God, I'm so glad I lived! That's when you realize you need balance. I seek that now all the time."
It's hard to imagine that Midler wants to conquer much more than she already has. Just in the last few years alone she's starred in her own over-the-top Vegas show that ran for nearly two years, performed in front of Queen Elizabeth, produced a Broadway show, received a lifetime achievement award, and will star in the upcoming comedy "Parental Guidance," opposite Billy Crystal. But, the Hawaii native explains, she's let certain dreams go over the years.Read More »from Bette Midler’s words of wisdom
Snoop and Corde bonding with a bong. (Instagram)The family that smokes marijuana together, stays together? Snoop Dogg (or Snoop Lion as he now prefers to be called) is defending the controversial photo his 18-year-old son Corde tweeted on September 13 of himself lighting his father's bong. In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the rapper says, "My kids can do whatever the hell they want. For me to say otherwise would be hypocritical. A lot of motherf--kers don't have a relationship with their kids, and that's when they get on drugs and have suicidal thoughts and drive drunk. Me and my son is mellow. I'm his father, so I wanna show him the proper way because he looks up to me. What better way to get it than from the master?"Read More »from Snoop Dogg defends smoking marijuana with 18-year-old son: ‘I wanna show him the proper way because he looks up to me’
