Taylor's New Album Inspired by an "absolute crash-and-burn heartbreak"
Country music star Taylor Swift is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Vogue magazine which is due to hit newsstands on January 24. In her coverstory interview, Taylor dishes a bit about her next album and, true to form, she plans to use events that occurred from her personal romantic relationships in her new collection of songs. Now, I think we ALL remember that Taylor famously “dated” (or whatever) Jake Gyllenhaal in late 2010 so it’s possible some songs may be about him. After Jake, Taylor also dated Glee star Chord Overstreet for a hot minute so … some songs could be about him. HMMM.

"A child is the greatest gift you can receive"
Popstar Beyoncé gave birth to her firstborn child, Blue Ivy, a little over a week ago and except for a joint announcement released by Bey and hubby Jay-Z, the new mom has not commented publicly to the press … until now. Strangely, the British version of Star magazine claims that they managed to somehow get the FIRST interview with new mom Beyoncé since she gave birth earlier this month. I have to say … not only does it sound strange to me that Bey is already giving interviews (just over a week after the birth of her firstborn baby) but it seems really odd that she would give her first interview to UK Star magazine. HMMM. Click below to read excerpts from this curious interview. More »
The 'Movie' Issue
Brad Pitt may have gone home empty-handed from the 69th annual Golden Globe Awards last night but we can’t feel too bad for the ubersupermegastar. Brad is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new Movie issue of W magazine and in his coverstory interview, he recalls the early days of his acting career … back when he wasn’t a very good actor. Now that Brad is a big star, I guess it’s interesting to read about the early days when he wasn’t a big star … or something. Homie looks really good on the cover of W magazine, tho, I’ll give him that. Click below to check out Brad‘s W coverphoto and read some excerpts from his coverstory interview. More »

In Celebration, She Spills New Deets About Her Album 'M.D.N.A.'
Popstar Madonna, who spent all last week promoting her new film W.E. and her new album M.D.N.A. in interviews both here in the US (on ABC News) and in the UK (on The Graham Norton Show), was in attendance at the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards last night. Maddy was nominated for Best Original Song for her ballad Masterpiece (from her directorial debut film W.E.). Altho Elton John bitchily commented before the show that Madonna didn’t have “a fucking chance” at winning, Madonna DID win the award … over Elton John … who lost. After Elton‘s loss, his hubby David Furnish had bitchy things of his own to say … on Facebook. LOL! In the press room, Madonna (with Golden Globe in hand) was asked a host of questions … including questions pertaining to her upcoming new album. Click below to hear what she had to say about M.D.N.A.

"Thank God for making me an atheist."
Last month, comic Ricky Gervais (who will be hosting the Golden Globe Awards this Sunday night) sparked a bit of controversy by posing as Jesus Christ with the word ATHEIST written on his chest on the cover of New Humanist magazine. Today we learn that Gervais is at it again with new comments that he made to Esquire magazine about the “arrogance” of celebrities (like, namely, Sandra Bullock) who thank God when they win awards. Additionally, Ricky reveals to Esquire that he is very much looking forward to hosting the Globes again this year … and he vows that he will NEVER host the Academy Awards should he ever be asked.

"I can't really be annoyed by it because, obviously, I've influenced her."
Last night, ABC News aired the first portion of their interview with Madonna on their late night news program Nightline (which you can watch in full below) and tho interesting, for the most part, there wasn’t much juicy stuff to nosh on. Madonna briefly talked about her upcoming Super Bowl performance and she dutifully talked about her new film W.E. (which opens in theaters early next month) but all of the GOOD STUFF was saved for today. Madonna was asked the much-anticipated Lady Gaga question on Good Morning America earlier today … and you’ve GOT to see what she has to say about the wannabe popstar by checking out the video and interview quotes below.
