Morning Sideboob: Taylor Swift Fights the Urge to Get Naked
Taylor Swift Likes to Keep Her Clothes On
Yep, we can all relax now. Taylor Swift revealed in an interview with Glamour magazine that she isn’t in a rush to shed her clothes to grab attention like many other young celebs. Instead, she says the route she chooses to take is braver because she bares her soul lyrically.
I find it relatively easy to keep my clothes on because I don’t really feel like taking them off. It’s not an urge I have. For me “risky” is revealing what really happened in my life through music. Risky is writing confessional songs and telling the true story about a person with enough details so everyone knows who that person is. That’s putting myself out there, maybe even more than taking my shirt off.
So, in other words, kissing and telling is Taylor’s way of taking a risk.
Taylor went on to talk about how the Internet can be a source of constant criticism and mockery.
I’m careful about getting sucked into the rabbit hole that is the Internet because, as a songwriter, I don’t have the option of having thick skin.
We’re not sure what she’s talking about. Do people poke fun at little old Taylor on the Internet?
Seriously, do they?
Red Hot Chili Peppers Unplugged
Didn’t the Red Hot Chili Peppers seem free as birds to jump around the stage wherever they chose during their Super Bowl halftime show? No silly wires or plugs to drag them down. The Internet seemed to notice, did a little research, and came to find out that the seasoned musicians forgot to plug in their instruments! How embarrassing. Good thing a fast-acting roadie was at the ready with a pre-recorded version of “Give It Away.” Whew!
But really, why did the Peppers lip sync when halftime headliner Bruno Mars did the deal live? RHCP bassist Flea offered this dodgy explanation:
When nobody could understand that combination of words, he came out with it:
We recorded a track for the day, just banged one out from our hearts that was very like in spirit to the versions we have been playing live the last few years with our beloved Josh on guitar. For the actual performance, Josh, Chad, and I were playing along with the pre recorded track so there was no need to plug in our guitars, so we did not. Could we have plugged them in and avoided bumming people out who have expressed disappointment that the instrumental track was pre recorded? Of course easily we could have and this would be a non-issue. We thought it better to not pretend. It seemed like the realest thing to do in the circumstance. It was like making a music video in front of a gazillion people, except with live vocals, and only one chance to rock it. Our only thought was to bring the spirit of who we are to the people.
Too bad Anthony Kiedis was free to scat-sing to his heart’s content.
DJ Paris Rakes It In
Paris Hilton was born into a mega-rich family, is famous for no good reason (other than a sex tape), and seems to feel completely entitled to it all. Nothing new, right? But did you know she’s now being paid stupid amounts of money to perform “DJ sets” all over the world? She recently told TMZ she was one of the top 5 DJs in the world, which means the world is broken.
Nice touch with the sunglasses there. We’re sure they make it easier to push the On and Off buttons.
After finishing a DJ set in Atlantic City recently—and getting paid $100,000 for it—Paris then giraffe-walked over to the blackjack table and won another $50,000! She’s not one to rub anything in, but here’s the photo she posted to her Instagram account:
We’re not bitter or anything, but WTF, life?!
