Taylor Swift tripped while walking down a flight of stairs to greet fans during the New Year's Rocking Eve celebrations in Times Square.

A spectator captured the flub and posted it on Vine. It proves that even superstars are human.

At one point, the show's host Ryan Seacrest gave Swift his jacket so she could warm up. "Are you not freezing?" he asked.

Taylor Swift Easily Keeps The Number One Spot Red Hot On The Billboard 200

January 2nd, 2015 8:27am EST
Taylor Swift Easily Keeps The Number One Spot Red Hot On The Bil
She's bleeping unstoppable – like totally! As much as the talk of the queen – aka Taylor Swift – has grown old, she just keeps on dominating the music industry like it’s never been dominated before. She's beastly – in the most distinguished and ladylike manner possible. Cutting to the chase and the 'pure' sales total, Swift sold another 326,000 copies of 1989, impacting with an even more robust number of 'units'. Nobody seems to be able to 'shake off' Swift and if she was shakable, the industry would be left with a void - a "Blank Space" (get it?).

Speaking of “Blank Space,” it adds fur...

Taylor Swift not only makes awesome music, she also gives back to her community -- in a big way. The singer has been named most charitable celebrity of the year for the third consecutive time.

Swift topped the DoSomething.org list in 2012, 2013 and 2014, in part for vowing to donate proceeds from her song "Welcome to New York" to NYC public schools. She also happens to be the Big Apple's new tourism ambassador.

25 Biggest Entertainment Stories Of 2014
2014 was a big year in entertainment -- there were sex scandals, star-studded weddings, arrests, nude photo leaks and cyber attacks, as well as a fist fight in an elevator.

Which stars and entertainment stories made the biggest headlines in 2014?

In January, Justin Bieber was arrested in Miami Beach, Fla., on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI), driving with an over six month expired license and resisting arrest without violence. That same month, Bieber was busted for throwing eggs at his neighbor's home in Calabasas, Calif., causing thousands of dollars of damage.

Why Is Taylor Swift 'Obsessed' With This 1989 Mash Up? (Watch)

Taylor Swift 'Obsessed' With 1989 Mash Up (Watch)
Taylor Swift is obsessed with a fan's mash-up of two tunes off her smash album "1989" and gave the video her blessing.

Swift shared the mashup, crafted by Nashville-based artist Louisa Wendorff along with Devin Dawson, on Saturday with the declaration, "OBSESSED" on her Twitter page.

Wendorff and Dawson effortlessly split the tunes "Blank Space" and "Style" into one cohesive song.

Without knowing the prior tunes, viewers would be led to believe this was an original song the duo performed acoustically.

Wendorff couldn't believe her luck in obtaining Swift's blessing, stating on Twitter, ...

40 Best Songs of 2014

The 40 Best Songs of 2014
As Judge Judy once said, “Beauty fades, dumb is forever.” What does that have to do with a list of the best songs of 2014? Well, little, though the honorable judge’s prudent words can be transformed into relevancy for the music industry: “Album sales fade, but songs continue forever.” In other words, while albums are selling horridly, songs themselves continue to flourish and dominate the music industry.

Limiting a list to just 40 songs is tough, given the number of great songs that characterize 2014. That means there will be omissions – maybe even big-time snubs – stones might be throw...

Nicki Minaj Settles For Number Two On The Billboard 200

Nicki Minaj
Not that it was ever going to be a contest, but Taylor Swift reclaimed her perch on the Billboard 200 without any trouble. 1989 sold 331,000 copies, an uptick in sales, and also experienced an uptick in the Billboard 200’s new ‘units’ system, to the tune of 375,000 units. But as we all know, doesn’t a queen always win? Swift has certainly been exactly what the music industry needed in a weak years of sales.

Nicki Minaj, who boasts the week’s top new album, settled for second place. The Pinkprint sold more respectably than expected, selling 194,000 copies, and impacting even more consi...

Too Much: 10 Songs That Were Insanely Overplayed In 2014
Taylor Swift's smash hit "Shake It Off" has only been playing on the radio for about a third of 2014 because of its August release, and it still saw enough airtime for us to say, "enough already!"

Sure, the song has a catchy beat and proves that Swift's crossover from country to pop music is nothing short of a success, but three-to-four times a day for months straight is enough to drive us mad!

Actuality, "Shake It Off" is one of two songs on this list that we really love, but it's time to slow down with the number of plays, radio stations across America!

Celebs Lose A Ton of Instagram Followers In Spam Purge
Kim Kardashian just beat out Justin Bieber as the hottest celeb on Instagram.

No, it's not due to another "break the internet" stunt, just some housecleaning by Instagram to get rid of inactive, fake and spam accounts.

The social media giant states that this will maintain "the best possible experience on Instagram" by ensuring that everyone following you is a real, live person.

After the sweep, Bieber lost nearly 15 percent of his followers, more than 3.5 million. On the upside, Kim Kardashian only lost 1.3 million followers with a grand total of 22 million to the Biebs 20 million.

For J. Cole, the number one spot is a familiar one. For the third time in his career, J. Cole sits atop the Billboard 200. This time, he earns the largest sales of his career as 2014 Forest Hills Drive sold a robust 354,000 copies. Translated to the Billboard 200’s new formula of ‘units’, J. Cole’s latest impacted 375,000. Even more remarkable about J. Cole’s numbers is the lack of a single to drive album sales – “Apparently” was issued upon the album’s release as a single. Initially, the album was forecasted to sell more than 300,000 copies.

Taylor Swift Still Tops On Billboard

The Billboard 200 may be completely revamped, but Taylor Swift’s constant stay atop the chart regardless of changes is unsurprising. After three consecutive weeks, a week in the runner-up slot, and last week’s return to the top, Swift now sits at five weeks at #1. Baller status – yep, definitely – she’s a playmaker. Overall, including overall “consumption” to quote the new chart language, Swift’s impact was 274,000. Again, only a portion of that were sales, specifically 230,000 copies. Regardless of technicalities, Swift rules.

But enough about Taylor, what about the newbies to th...

Taylor Swift has everything going for her right now -- a successful crossover to pop music with her hit new album "1989," which has topped the Billboard charts for weeks, three Grammy nominations for her hit single "Shake It Off" (the album came out too late to qualify for any Grammies, but the single dropped within the eligibility time frame), and a stint as the main musical performer during this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show -- during which she looked better than half the models.

Taylor Swift Rules The ‘New’ Billboard 200

December 4th, 2014 12:11pm EST
Taylor Swift
Out with the old and in with the new. The Billboard 200 has changed its charting formula that doesn’t just solely include albums sales, but also streaming and digital tracks. It’s definitely a contrast, but also makes complete sense given the current music climate. The days where it just comes down to album sales and nothing more are simply done – look at albums sales in 2014 alone. Still, the good old Nielsen Soundscan tabulates the sales via the Top Album Sales Chart.

But enough technicalities – time to jump right into the Billboard 200 – new or old. The holder of the number one sp...

'Tis the season where album sales are elevated and the music industry breathes a sigh of relief – until the deadness of January that is. While there have been few victory laps (besides Taylor Swift’s 1989), the numbers are stronger than earlier in 2014. That said, reliable chart-topper One Direction scored a fourth number one album with Four. Although 1D got it done, there is a ‘but’ to the scenario.

Four landed at a familiar spot for 1D, but did so in somewhat underwhelming fashion. Sure the 387,000 copies the British-Irish boy band moved is exceptional, but falls below both prognostic...
