In recent years, the pop culture institution of 'Saturday Night Live' has invited more pop artists to appear on the show, not just as musical guests, but also as hosts. The best 'SNL' skits featuring pop stars include memorable moments in which Bruno Mars became a human karaoke machine, Justin Bieber played a diehard Miley Cyrus fan, and Taylor Swift mocked a very mockable celebrity.
The 2013 Met Gala (aka the Met Ball) was last night (May 6) in NYC, and plenty of pop stars were in attendance, turning heads in an array of beautiful (and sadly, some questionable) gowns. The theme was 'Punk: Chaos to Couture,' and many A-listers interpreted it quite literally, like Miley Cyrus, while others, such as Madonna and Gwen Stefani, played with the concept. Standouts, for better or worse, included Beyonce (in Givenchy); Taylor Swift (in J. Mendel); and Katy Perry, who wore a crown with Dolce & Gabbana.
The Taylor Swift-Kanye West beef just won't die. Not only does Swift keep a framed photo of the infamous 2009 MTV Video Music Awards incident in her house, but fellow stars can't seem to shut up about it four years later.
Case in point: West's BFF, Jay-Z. Jigga references the incident once more in his track for 'The Great Gatsby' soundtrack, '100$ Bill.'
The 2013 Billboard Music Awards are right around the corner, and the competition for the Top Artist title is pretty fierce this year. Taylor Swift, Rihanna, One Direction, Maroon 5 and Justin Bieber are all up for the prestigious award, which takes chart performances, sales, and other important industry factors into account.
Taylor Swift is always the do-gooder. The singer never misses the opportunity to visit with her sick and less fortunate fans. Swift managed to carve time out of her schedule to stop by Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles to meet with the family of Lauren Murphy, a young woman who was hit by a car while on an early morning run in Hollywood on April 19.
Deciding on a prom queen can be a tough task, especially when all of the candidates are worthy of the title. You know what's even tougher, though? Voting on who you want to win the crown when it's Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus who are pitted against each other for queen of the dance, just like in this round of PopCrush's Prom King and Queen competition!
Everyone can stop boo-hooing Taylor Swift and her much-maligned love life once they get a peek at her newly acquired, palatial Rhode Island estate, on which she plunked down $17 million in cash! She doesn't need a to cry a river over a future ex when she can just sit by the ocean and write a song about him, thanks to this crib.
