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:
Duckface can be high-fashion y’all! Art critic Jerry Saltz sat down with 12 supermodel including Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls, Karlie Kloss, and Ajak Deng recently and picked their brains on what they think makes a good selfie. An inspiring quote from The Vulture‘s ‘History Of The Selfie’:
Selfies come from all of us; they are a folk art that is already expanding the language and lexicon of photography. Selfies are a photography of modern life. Everyone has their own idea of what makes a good selfie. I like the ones that metamorphose into what might be called selfies-plus–pictures that begin to speak in unintended tongues, that carry surpluses of meaning that the maker may not have known were there. Barthes wrote that such images produce what he called “a third meaning,” which passes “from language to significance.”
That is some deep shit! What do you think makes a good selfie?
