!! OMG, Is Taylor Swift diving for catfish in Ani Difranco lake? Gawker and The Daily Mail seem to think so! !!

Singer Taylor Swift has moved in with her best friend Karlie Kloss and internet chickens are already clucking with rumours that they’ve been re-inacting scenes from Blue Is The Warmest Color together every damn night.
The DailyMail posted an article about the pair (which, ehem… was suspiciously taken down and removed) and stated:

“Taylor and Karlie have grown very close,’ the source told me. ‘They are inseparable. Taylor wanted someone to live with her, to have some company, and Karlie jumped at the chance to move in with her friend. They spent a lot of time together before Karlie moved in but now they are rarely apart. They do everything together, from visits to the gym to going on road trips.”

So, what happened to The DailyMail‘s article? According to Gawker:

Sean Walsh, a spokesperson for the Daily Mail’s New York office, explained that the column–and later, the orders to delete it–originated from the paper’s sister publication in Britain, The Mail on Sunday, which has a special section on The Daily Mail’s website. “They asked us to spike it,” Walsh told Gawker, “and we have no idea why.”

You know, I wouldn’t be surprised if Taylor Swift played for the same team. I understand that the country music scene wouldn’t exactly be kind to that kind of news, so it makes sense if she is on the DL. I suppose that most of her highly-publicized relationships have been with dudes I don’t exactly buy as straight either (Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner) and her habit of writing songs about them and using them to plug her album would only help her legitimize it all further.
I feel like cryptically covering Sophie B. Hawkins could be a cute way to let the world know, though! Just imagine. Let us step inside your Jungle Book, Taylor:

!! OMG, shake a fist: ANNIE debuts Putin protest video with track “RUSSIAN KISS” !!

6a00d8341c730253ef01a3fcb72639970b-800wi.jpg
Norwegian pop singer Annie may sometimes present herself like a tiny mouse with a soft delivery, but her new track and video protesting Vladimir Putin‘s anti-gay laws in Russia — are anything but placid!
Annie and producer Richard X took a cue from producer Lil’ Louis‘ classic house track “French Kiss” on this, then rinsed her protest in ACID, and shot a video for it all featuring a big homo kiss-up! A little about the video from Annie’s Official Site:

The Winter Olympics are not just skating styles, waxing techniques and jump lengths. The Winter Olympics are also deep emotions: interpersonal, national, and global. Millions of TV-viewers are witness to these emotions. Usually, they find their expression in embraces and kisses. You can observe this at the finishing area and during the medal ceremony — teammates embracing each other, winners kissing their partners.
This may be difficult when the Olympic Games take place in Sochi in February. As we know, Vladimir Putin has introduced laws prohibiting gays and lesbians to show their love in public in Russia. Furthermore, it is prohibited to talk positively about homosexuality in public. This is the reason why an increasing number of leaders worldwide have decided to boycott this year’s Olympics. In Norway, the political leadership has rejected calls to remain at home. As a great power in winter sports Norway is in a unique position to flex its muscles in a situation like this. This could have been an occasion for Norway to stand up for the fundamental right to express your feelings towards the one you love.
In Norway, many gays and lesbians — and not only gays and lesbians — have reacted against this. One of them is one of Norway’s best-known elite artists: The New York-based artist Bjarne Melgaard (http://stabfrenzy.com/). Therefore, at the beginning of December, together with the Norwegian songwriter and performer Annie (http://anniemelody.com/), he took the initiative to Russian Kiss: a short movie about the right to kiss one’s beloved — regardless of sexual orientation — wherever one likes.

Check out the video below, (which also happens to feature Toronto photographer Petra Collins, the woman behind American Apparel’s controversial “Period Power” t-shirt). RUSSIAN KISS is available for purchase today, and a portion of the iTune proceeds go to gay rights advocacy non-profit AllOut.org!

!! OMG, makes perfect sense: t.a.T.u to perform at the 2014 Sochi Olympic Opening Ceremony !!

TatuPA0208110.jpg
t.a.T.u, the pop duo who brought you the lesbionic dance hit “All The Things She Said”, which reached No. 7 in the UK charts, and No. 1 in the US dance charts — are set to perform at the Sochi 2014 Olympics Opening Ceremony!
This seems a bit strange, considering Russia’s stance and laws against homosexuality. Especially considering the fact that t.a.T.u’s lyrics and video for “All The Things She Said,” were suggestive of homosexuality and bisexuality (The chorus even sings “I’m losing my mind. I need her.”).
t.a.T.u posted on their Twitter that they’d be performing at the opening ceremony but later deleted that shit. They’ve said nothing about it since, and State television Channel One, whose producers and directors are staging the ceremony, have also declined to comment. According to the Wall Street Journal though:

Details of the opening ceremony are a closely guarded secret. But two people familiar with the matter say Russia’s team will enter the stadium to the music of t.a.T.u, made up of Lena Katina and Yulia Volkova. The group will perform at the warm-up show that won’t be broadcast internationally, the people said. The Russian team will then file into the stadium to the sound of their 2003 hit “Not Gonna Get Us.”
The rest of the ceremony will focus on Russia’s history from ancient times through Imperial Russia to the Soviet era, according to the people familiar with the plans. Church domes will float above the newly-built stadium, giant magic horses will glow in the sky, and Russian heavy weight boxing champion and the lawmaker Nikolai Valuyev will perform as Uncle Styopa, a benign giant policeman from a Russian children’s book.

Sounds charming! The band has been accused of being “fake lezzie” which I guess is enough of an excuse for Putin to let this one slide? Who the f*ck knows! Hopefully they slip eachother the tongue onstage, and then cut to Putin’s reaction. Check out their lady-loving hit below!

!! OMG, fight for your rights: Madonna shares the stage with Pussy Riot for Amnesty International Human Rights Concert !!

rights6n-2-web.jpg
Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, right, and Maria Alyokhina, center, of Pussy Riot appeared Wednesday at Amesty International‘s concert for human rights at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
The pair were introduced by key supporter, Madonna, who said she wanted to thank the two women “for making pussy a ‘sayable’ word in my household. Now, my 8-year-olds say it all the time.” Classy! Madonna also talked about the death threats she received during her Russian tour, while Pussy Riot were on trial.

“Eighty-seven of my fans were arrested for gay behavior — whatever that is,” she said.

Nadezhda and Maria chose to speak in Russian with aggression and passion. A translator related the women’s speech.

“Freedom is not a given,” she translated. “It is something we have to fight for every day. It is our duty to speak for those who are still behind bars.”

Others involved in the night included Blondie‘s Deborah Harry who performed, Yoko Ono, who spoke, and Susan Sarandon, who was the evening’s co-host.
