There may be bad blood between Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez. At least, that’s what Hollywood Life wants you to believe.
“Uh oh! Taylor Swift, 26, and Selena Gomez, 23, may be on the outs with each other. Both girls threw their own Fourth of July party over the weekend, and neither attended the other’s. Was Selena left off Taylor’s guest list? Could that be why she threw her own party?”
It appears that the rhetorical question may have been nothing but clickbait, and even Gossip Cop has called Hollywood Life out for it.
“Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez threw separate parties on the Fourth of July, but it’s NOT because there are any issues between the good friends. Hollywood Life is well aware of the reason that the two pals didn’t spend the holiday together, but the webloid still decided to mislead its readers by teasing a fake feud for clickbait,” says columnist Andrew Shuster.
The article adds that on Monday, Taylor Swift threw a huge July 4th party near her Rode Island home with new boyfriend, Tom Hiddleston, and other members of her squad. Selena Gomez celebrated the same day with a pool party on the West Coast and couldn’t attend Swift’s party because she had a concert in Phoenix, Arizona on Tuesday.
Taylor Swift has also been battling rumors that she recently had a boob job. Gossip Cop recently summarized an article that appeared in the print edition of the National Enquirer.
“According to the repeatedly disproven National Enquirer, Swift is ‘really popping’ these days. The supermarket tabloid alleges that plastic surgeons with which it consulted think the singer added two things to shake at new boyfriend Tom Hiddleston.”
The article adds that Swift ‘s new assets have made her figure curvier, but Gossip Cop isn’t having any of it.
“Taylor Swift did not get a boob job, despite a new titillating claim from one of this week’s tabloids. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this report. We’re told it’s not true,” says columnist Michael Lewittes, before noting that the National Enquirer has a long history of making up false stories about Taylor Swift.
Speaking of Swift’s assets, they are in shown in their full mock-up glory in Kanye West’s new video “Famous,” which can be viewed on YouTube. The video features an orgy of sorts with Kanye West, Taylor Swift, Donald Trump, Rihanna, and Chris Brown. None of these people actually appeared, but the video was digitally enhanced in a way to make it seem like they did. Some people are calling the video revenge porn against Taylor Swift, an artist who Kanye has been quarreling with over the past month. Rolling Stone wonders if Swift can sue Kanye.
“Can one of these celebrities — most notably Swift, the only one mentioned in the lyrics — take West to court for splaying her contented and topless lookalike beside him? Short answer: Of course she can. The real question is whether it’s worth the effort.”
The article adds that the Right of Publicity statute prevents someone from using a person’s name or likeness to sell a commercial product without their consent. It’s doubtful that Taylor Swift would sue, especially since the video hasn’t done any real damage to her brand. However, it’s more than likely Taylor Swift will make a statement about the video, and this is something that would certainly excite Mr. West.
