You Won't Believe What Ed Sheeran Just Said About Taylor Swift!
Taylor Swift may only be 24-years-old, but she tends to act a bit more mature than that, according to former tour-mate Ed Sheeran.

Sheeran might not have meant any ill will with his comment, but it certainly didn't sound good when he basically referred to the Pennsylvania native as a crazy cat lady!

“I know she’s 24 but she’s a sort of middle-aged woman trapped in a 24-year-old’s body," he told Time magazine in a recent interview.

Ouch!

That wasn't all, he also painted her out to be pretty boring as well.

"She hangs out with her cat and sews things," he added, referring to a needlework...

2014 Grammy Awards Reactions: The Triumphs And Fails
Another year and another Grammys ceremony has come and passed. As always, there were moments that thrilled while others made me curse under my breath. Luckily, as a music journalist, this guy has learned how to think like the Recording Academy, hence the accuracy of many of my picks this year. Still, even being correct, you have to wonder what the Academy is thinking sometimes. Yes, I’m specifically referencing the fact that Kendrick Lamar was shut out – ridiculous!

The Grammy Awards are music's biggest event of the year, and stars flooded the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, showing off their sexy (and not-so-sexy) looks on the red carpet.

Actress Paula Patton took a risk by wearing a zebra print dress featuring two lion heads growling at her neckline. Robin Thicke's wife got a lot of attention for the dress - but not in a good way. She tops our list of the worst dressed at the 56th annual event.

Pharrell Williams also made quite a statement by showing up in a giant hat, which many compared to the Arby's logo.

Metal was the "in" look this year for several stars who hit red carpet at the 2014 Grammy Awards, including Taylor Swift, who wore a glittering silver dress that actor Neil Patrick Harris likened to chainmail on the red carpet prior to the show.

Taylor played her single "All Too Well" during her live performance, which is rumored to be about ex-boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal.

Despite spending the first 14 years of her life being brought up in rural Pennsylvania, Taylor Swift has been named Tennessean of the Year by The Tennessean newspaper.

2013 was chock full of celebrity break-ups, divorces, and even reconciliations.

Michael Douglas, 69 and his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones, 44, took a temporary "break" from their 13-year marriage in August. They had their doubters when they wed due to their vast age difference but proved people wrong after staying together for more than a decade - a triumph in Hollywood.

In November, Douglas told reporters, "I hope to resolve my marriage in a positive fashion."

The Grammys are like a musician’s Super Bowl, even if the nominations and victorious artists are flawed.  I won’t lie to you, I complain every year that someone won a Grammy that didn’t deserve it while someone else was snubbed. Just last year, during the 55th Annual Grammys, I lobbied hard for Frank Ocean (looking back, I have reservations now) while Mumford & Sons walked out with the Album of the Year trophy.  The year that Taylor Swift won for Fearless, my girl Beyoncé was on a roll until the coveted Album of the Year award was read.  You get my position though!
