Is Taylor Swift Repellent To Men?
Taylor Swift is reportedly taking a break from dating because her business team is urging her to go solo for a while. The singer's reps are sick of setting her up on dates only to have her "strange personality" scare men off, according to Radar Online.

None of the guys she shows interest in want to be subject of a future song or be depicted as a bad guy. As a result, Swift's team reportedly urged the singer to step back from boy...

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! But here goes nothing examining the awards given.

The Best & Worst Dressed At The 2014 Grammy Awards
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.

But it wasn't all bad. Stars i...

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.

"It's so scratchy," she told E! host Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet before the show. "I think it's bulletproof! It's really heavy and all the things that you would expect it to be. It's like a suit of armor."

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

Taylor Swift
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.

Taylor's way of giving back is what landed her the honor, with local donations to the Nashville Symphony and to the Country Music Hall of Fame, where her $4 million pledge will go toward the music education center, including classrooms, instruments and exhibits.

The place holds a special memory for Taylor -- it's where she signed her very first recording contract.

Michael Douglas & Catherine Zeta-Jones
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."

We're not sure what that means - have a peaceful divorce? Get back together? Who knows.

Thoughts On The 56th Annual Grammy Nominations

December 9th, 2013 8:50pm EST
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
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! This year,  I find myself...

However, Swift says in an interview with New York Magazine, "I only write songs about crazy love. If I go on two dates with a guy and we don’t click, I’m not writing a song about that.
