This week there’s pop star beef, divas, and a natural reaction to being booed onstage.
It’s a battle of the pop stars! Two of pop’s biggest names may (or totally may not) be beefing, with Taylor Swift saying in a recent Rolling Stones interview that the song “Bad Blood” on her forthcoming album 1989 is about another star who she considers an enemy. Of course, speculation ran rampant, and all fingers pointed to Katy Perry for multiple reasons.
Apparently, Perry attempted to hire some of Swift’s dancers right from under her, which would have sabotaged her entire arena tour.
Also, there’s the fact that both women dated John Mayer. So there’s that.
Oh, also, Perry tweeted, “Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing…” earlier this month, which definitely didn’t help the situation.
Is pop’s newest sweetheart really not so sweet after all? According to Australian news outlet News.com.au, Ariana Grande left a photo shoot early because she was being photographed from the wrong side.
Yes, in an age of Instagram and Twitter, Grande left an entire photo shoot because the photographer was not photographing her good side (her left side is her good side for those concerned). In addition, Grande’s rep reportedly demanded that the pictures be deleted, as if the list of things Grande can’t be asked about in an interview (i.e. relationships, Mariah Carey, Sam & Cat, and anything else remotely interesting about her) wasn’t enough.
In her defense, Grande did deny the diva behavior; as any good pop star should.
Justin Bieber was booed when he appeared on stage at Tuesday night’s “Fashion Rocks” event aired on CBS. So Bieber did the only logical thing anyone does when they’re booed on stage. He stripped.
To be exact, Bieber stripped down to his Calvin Klein underwear while standing next to model Lara Stone before announcing a performance by Rita Stone.
That’s about it.
Nicki Minaj has had a pretty great year so far. After being featured on Beyonce’s “Flawless (remix)” and being a part of one of this year’s biggest hits “Bang Bang,” Minaj has now taken her talents to New York Fashion Week.
A series of clips on social media show Minaj teaching some of NY’s hottest models how to perform the dance from her music video to the song “Anaconda.”
Let’s just say, we should all leave the dancing to Nicki.
In much cooler and awesomely nerdy news, the new batmobile from the upcoming “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” film was officially unveiled on director Zack Snyder’s twitter page.
Pictures that were taken from an iPhone already leaked earlier showing off Batman’s new ride, but as Snyder put so eloquently in a tweet, “RT: iPhone photography is great but some things deserve more. (Nikon D800 ISO 500 24mm f/11 1/25th sec) Thanks Clay!”
You know, just in case you needed to know exactly how it was photographed.
