Taylor Swift & Calvin Harris KISSED At The Billboard Music Awards Last Night

Taylor Swift enjoyed a great night at the Billboard Music Awards last night … she won a ton of awards, she hung out with her besties … and she got a BIG OL’ KISS from her new man Calvin Harris — LIVE on national television. You may recall that back in March we first say Taylvin holding hands, our first sign that the two were going out. Then in April, THEY HELD HANDS IN PUBLIC AGAIN, further cementing romantic relationship rumors. THEN, after fears that Taylor‘s beloved cats might put her romance with Calvin and his cat allergies at risk, Harris himself showed us that he is cool with Taylor‘s cats … and, obvs, their owner. And finally, last night, after Taylor was honored for her musical achievements at the BMAs, the pair kissed in front of cameras for all the world to see … proving, once and for all, that they are doing the do and are full on in LURVE right now.

Well, Damn: Céline Dion Utterly Slayed The Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet

So, I wake up this morning and start looking for all of the Billboard Music Awards red carpet looks that I missed last night.

First Look: Michael Fassbender Is Steve Jobs In The Danny Boyle-Directed Biopic

Fassy FTW

Last night everyone who was watching Mad Men was privy to some pretty amazing trailers. Somehow, I completely missed the news that Trainspotting and Slum Dog Millionaire director Danny Boyle was making a Steve Jobs biopic (aptly titled Steve Jobs)… starring MICHAEL FASSBENDER… and KATE WINSLET. And also Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, Katherine Waterston, and Michael Stuhlbarg. Aaron Sorkin wrote the script and even though this promo is just one minute long, my body is so ready for this movie. Peep the video for more!

Joan Holloway-Harris Stole The ‘Mad Men’ Series Finale

We Mad Men fans are an absolute emotional wreck this morning. What happened? Where are we? WHO are we? There’s going to be plenty to read online this morning about the last episode ever of one of the greatest TV shows ever, but I’m going to focus on the one character who absolutely blew me away last night. All these years I’ve been talking about Peggy Olson, and hailing Elisabeth Moss‘ character as one of the most important TV characters—especially among women. But Joan Holloway-Harris‘ arc has been so fantastic—surprising and fulfilling in every way—that I just have to talk about it. Click inside for more!

Watch: Taylor Swift Has Released Her Mini-Movie Music Video For ‘Bad Blood’

"Baby, now we got bad blood"

After teasing the release of her music video with a massive character poster campaign, Taylor Swift finally unleashed her Bad Blood music video/mini-movie tonight for the world to see. As you can see in the embed above, the storyline of the Bad Blood video focuses squarely on betrayal … and revenge. The speculation that has emerged since the release of this video is that the video is meant as a not-so-subtle diss toward Katy Perry who used to be friendly with Taylor and, after a betrayal, well … came the bad blood. Selena Gomez‘s character Arsyn is said to be playing the Katy role and Taylor‘s Catastrophe character is obvs the Taylor role. It’s an interesting theory … but the video is so good overall that the rumored subtext is secondary. Taylor has outdone herself with this video for Bad Blood. The week-long hype promo was well worth it, I think. Have a look, see what you think. Are you impressed?

Watch: Britney Spears & Iggy Azalea Perform ‘Pretty Girls’ At The Billboard Music Awards

Britney Spears and her latest collaborator Iggy Azalea took to the stage during the 2015 Billboard Music Awards live in Las Vegas, NV tonight to perform their new single Pretty Girls for the first time. As you can see in the embed below, the ladies took some cues from their totally outrageously ’80s-themed music video for this live performance that is full of dance and FUN! You can tell that Britney is having a great time during this performance … and my love for this song grows every time I hear it. The performance is short but sweet but only because the song is short and sweet … a perfect pop confection to indulge in again and again. I love!! More »

What’s Your Favorite Musical Moment on TV?

As you all should know by now, tonight it’s the end of an era and I join the entire world of Mad Men fandom in a communal glass case of emotion. I spent more time than I care to admit putting together a gallery of 100 Powerful Mad Men Moments for Paste yesterday, and found myself thinking about how many of those moments were made all the more poignant by a particular song. I also recently (finally!) started watching Parenthood and, in a similar way, find myself getting really into the music. I’m very curious to hear if you all have any particular, favorite musical TV moments, so click inside for more!

Trent Reznor Of Nine Inch Nails Turns 50

Today is a very special day for fans of Nine Inch Nails because it is the 50th birthday of NIN mastermind Trent Reznor. It is insane to think that Reznor is actually 50 but when milestone birthdays come along, they must be paid homage to. I am very proud to say that I have been a NIN fan from the very start. A friend of mine brought her Pretty Hate Machine CD to social studies class during my Freshman year of high school and literally changed my life forever. With the release of NIN‘s sophomore album The Downward Spiral came a musical awakening in me that completely upended everything that I knew before. I’ve seen NIN live in concert all over the US, as well as internationally, and absolutely consider Nine Inch Nails to be my all-time favorite. In recent years I’ve been fortunate enough to strike up a friendship with TR and his beautiful family and it is with all the love I can muster that I wish Trent the Happiest Birthday of all. I had a hard time finding the right photo to use for this post so I decided to share a few of my faves to celebrate TR‘s birthday today. I hope he has the best day ever and I am very much looking forward to wishing him Happy Birthdays for many, many years to come!
