Taylor Swift’s cover of Earth, Wind & Fire’s classic hit “September” was about as exciting as a drunk and sedated turtle napping … so says one of the co-writers of the song. Allee Willis, who co-wrote “September” with EW&F’s Maurice White…
After years of bad blood, Katy Perry opened up about her ongoing feud with Taylor Swift during a particularly honest edition of James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke, which aired on Monday, May 22. During her jam sesh with the late-night host, Perry, 32, revealed that she would like to move on only if T. Swift, 27, can apologize.
Here, Us Weekly looks back at how the pop superstars went from friends to, as Swift once put it, “straight-up enemies.”
(LOS ANGELES) — A Colorado man who was wearing a mask and had a knife in his car when he was arrested outside a Beverly Hills home owned by Taylor Swift was released from custody on Tuesday while police continued their investigation.
Julius Sandrock, 38, was arrested Saturday on suspicion of stalking after officers went to the home. Swift, who lives in New York, wasn’t at the home, police said.
Sandrock was freed from jail on Tuesday morning, according to a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department website.
It wasn’t immediately clear whether Sandrock had a lawyer.
Meanwhile, police obtained a temporary restraining order preventing Sandrock from possessing guns.
According to the document, Sandrock was wearing a mask and rubber gloves when he was taken into custody and told police he had driven from his home in Broomfield, Colorado, to see Swift.
Sandrock told officers he owned three handguns and was on probation in Colorado for firing one, police said.
A search of his car turned up a knife, rope, ammunition and more masks and gloves, according to the restraining order.
Prescription medications, including oxycodone, were also found and Sandrock told arresting officers that he had depression, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and manic episodes, according to the document.
The arrest followed the April 8 arrest of a homeless man on suspicion of trespassing after he tried to climb a wall at the same property and ignored warnings by security guards to leave.
Swift was not at the home.
Justin Lilly, 23, was charged with a misdemeanor and sentenced to three days in jail.
Taylor Swift’s BF Joe Alwyn Will Join Her On Reputation World Tour: ‘She Really Thinks He Might Be The One’
He’s …Ready For It!
The insider dishes:
“[Taylor’s] gonna be on tour soon and Joe will be there and she realized there’s no point in not living her life. All her friends know about their relationship anyway.”
In fact, the Shake It Off singer believes the actor “might be the one” and is really “confident” with their partnership!
“She feels confident in their relationship and Joe really loves her. She really thinks he might be the one.”
Out of everything, the songbird loves the fact that the British hunk isn’t using her for fame or “attention.”
“She loves that he is confident and has his own career. She also likes that he doesn’t seek attention and is low-key.”
As we previously reported, last Friday, Joe and Tay were spotted holding hands when they arrived at Madison Square Garden for Jingle Ball in NYC.WENN.]
Taylor Swift’s literally putting up walls all around her, turning an historic landmark home into her own personal fortress that will be impenetrable to cameras — if all goes according to her plan. Taylor obtained permits to block visibility…
Don’t come for Kim Kardashian West!!!
The KUWTK superstar and her daughter, North West, made their way to Katy Perry‘s El Lay concert on Friday night — and while the pics they shared were adorable and everyone loves it when celebs get together blah blah blah, the real story here is the never-ending feud with Taylor Swift.
Friday was, of course, the same day that Swift released a new album, and because it also happened to be the day Perry was performing at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles… And because this is apparently forever going to be a thing, Kim knew exactly what to do.
Here’s Kim, Katy, North, and the crew — which includes friend Larsa Pippen and her daughter along with some other kids — out backstage at Katy’s concert from last night (below):
Cute!!! And fun!!!
…But also always sending a message.
Kim’s been around the block with this stuff before, she knows how it’s done!
Ha!!![Image via Snapchat.]
People are PUZZLED.
Okay, as y’all saw in our reaction video, we didn’t FULLY get what Taylor Swift‘s Ready For It? music video was all about. While we thought Tay Tay looked incredible in her futuristic visual, we weren’t able to piece together all of the clues to decode the meaning.
And, from what we can tell on the internet, we weren’t alone in our confusion. Not long after Miz Swift dropped her vid, countless Swifties took to Twitter to voice their puzzlement regarding the Ready For It? visual. Sorry, girl!!
Be sure to ch-ch-check out the confused comments for yourself (below)!

Movies, Baking, & Hit Love Songs — New Details On Taylor Swift’s ‘Very Normal’ Relationship With Joe Alwyn!
She went from Loki to low-key!
According to a source speaking to Us Weekly, Tay Tay and actor Joe Alwyn are “very much in love” — and they’re keeping their romance safe by keeping it private:
“They have quite a low-key relationship, which Taylor likes. It’s very normal, and no one really knows about it right now. They just work out, watch movies together and invite friends over. Taylor loves to cook and bake for him. They are still taking it slow.”
That actually sounds kind of perfect and amazing.
They’re also doing a great job keeping things on the DL. We only heard about them in May, but based on fan theories about her Gorgeous lyrics, the couple may have already been “taking it slow” for over a year at this point.
Do YOU think Taylor has finally found the key to her happiness??[Image via RW/amP/Media Punch.]
Once a Taylor Swift squad member ALWAYS a Taylor Swift squad member, right? WRONG.
On Friday, Lorde revealed that she isn’t a part of the Blank Space singer’s famous squad any longer. *Gasp*
During a sit down with Sunrise‘s David Koch, the Green Light singer dished:
“I don’t hang out with these people at all.”
Understandably, Koch was baffled by this confession as he replied:
“But hang-on, you’re part of Taylor’s squad, all the magazines tell us.”
Don’t worry, bud. This truth bomb has left us shooketh too. Of course, this admission comes only a month after the 20-year-old seemingly compared her friendship with Tay Tay to “an autoimmune disease.” And while Lorde and Taylor aren’t super close following the shady remark, it appears as though she still considers Swift one of her “idols.”
“You know, you make friends in different places, but I think for the most part I’m not like, calling my idols for advice necessarily.”
Hmmm, very inneresting. In fact, it sounds like the New Zealand native isn’t a big fan of Tinseltown as she added that she uses make believe to cope with the demanding personalities in Hollywood. The A-lister noted:
“The second you think too hard about it, you’ll just go insane, so it’s best to be like ‘we’re in wonderland and it’s just what happens around here.'”
Huh. Not to mention, while chatting with Today host Richard Wilkins, Lorde quipped that celeb life is “a drag.” She even pulled away from the spotlight following her breakout success, as she relayed:
“I really withdrew myself from being a public person and went home.”
What do YOU think? Are you shocked about Lorde’s squad status??
