Jennifer Aniston Is Not “Heartbroken” Over Divorce

Unfortunately for Jennifer Aniston, she’s had quite a few breakups in the public eye. Were she to date a banker from Iowa, she’d avoid the minefield of questions about Brad Pitt, Vince Vaughn, John Mayer, and Justin Theroux. Instead, she’s forced to not only defend her relationships, but to also defend the end of those relationships. And in an effort to fight against the media’s unfair narrative of Aniston as the sad, lonely girl who can’t keep a man, she’s pushed up against it with a consistent, opposing strategy. In a new interview with InStyle, Aniston insists she not heartbroken. This is not the first time she’s taken this route, and despite my love for all things Aniston, her comment begs an even more important question. What’s so wrong with being heartbroken, anyways?

Everything We’ve Learned About Taylor Swift on ‘Reputation’

Taylor Swift had no choice but to reference the infamous Kimye Feud

Though team Kimye said they’re too busy raising their children to address Swift’s digs, it would be impossible for Swift to have taken the high road given the massive hit her brand took for that feud. Though we know “Look What You Made Me Do” is about Kanye given the “tilted stage,” “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things,” takes some more jabs.

It was so nice being friends again
There I was, giving you a second chance
But then you stabbed in the back while shaking my hand
And therein lies the issue
Friends don’t try to trick you
Get you on the phone and mind-twist you
And so I took an axe to a mended fence

It goes without saying that this verse is enraging. Let me get this straight, Taylor Swift gave Kanye West a second chance? Did Swift call actress Camilla Belle for lyric approval over a song that basically called her a whore in reference to her romance with Swift’s ex at the time, Joe Jonas (She’s an actress, whoa/She’s better known for the things that she does on the mattress, whoa)? Also, explain to me how she was mind-twisted? Oh right, because Kanye asked for permission to say he made her famous but neglected to declare he’d use the word “bitch.” Fine distinction, Taylor. Let’s not relive it.

Taylor Swift Thinks Calvin Harris is a Narcissist

On “I Did Something Bad,” Swift says “never trust a narcissist,” and “If a man talks shit, then I owe him nothing. I don’t regret it one bit, ’cause he had it coming.” As for why she’s so angry, it’s unclear, but it might have something to do with the song Harris wrote with Swift for which he later took sole credit. But it doesn’t stop there. There’s reference to flying “playboys” around the world, who “drop her name.” This is not a pretty picture, folks, but it’s also not surprising given their ugly breakup.To be fair, that might also be a Hiddleston dig given that the press leaks at the time said Swift questioned Hiddleston’s intentions. I’m also guessing the song title, “I Did Something Bad,” refers to the fact that her relationship with Tom Hiddleston overlapped with her Harris romance.

She Met Her Current Boyfriend While Still With Calvin Harris

Swift’s song, “Gorgeous,” makes it clear that she crushed on her current man from afar. In fact, she says that when they met she had an older boyfriend. The reason that’s likely Harris is because on another song, “Dress,” Swift says, “Nights back when you met me, your buzzcut and my bleached hair.” Swift had bleached hair at the Met Gala in 2016 and her new beau had a buzz cut around the same time for a movie role.

Swift’s Relationship With Tom Hiddleston Was “Cursed” From the Start

Swift suggests that Hiddleston was a rebound who broke her out of prison from her relationship with Harris, which she desperately wanted to leave. Hiddleston also somehow “poisoned the well” with one mysterious action referenced by the lyric “X marks the spot” and a “switch to the other side.”

She’s Happy, and She Wants to Keep Her Romance a Secret

“King of My Heart” calls her new boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, “the one she has been waiting for,” saying she’ll “never let [him] go.” This song also has another subtle jab at her exes, referencing the cars they drive while saying, “they never took me quite where you do.”

So is the album good? Yes. Taylor Swift is always good. She’s got a team of people who work extremely hard on making a great album, and the tone is always consistent. I slightly object to some of the hip hop elements, as it feels a little try-hard given that Swift is simply far too uncool for it. It’s also slightly over-produced, which is to be expected. The added elements often distract from the melody, and given that this record is less about heartbreak and more about reinvention, I found myself far less invested in the lyrics. When someone’s “reputation” is impacted by hard truths about their character, my listening experience is slightly dented. But as I said. It’s good. It’s always good.

Tyga on The Breakfast Club — Talks Kylie Jenner

Tyga made an appearance on The Breakfast Club to promote his music, and the interview quickly became a Kardashian interrogation. Though I predict this won’t get too much pick-up given his ambiguity, it’s actually far more revealing than it might seem. Below are some of the more startling revelations. Watch the video to see it in full.

  • Tyga isn’t bankrupt. When asked about his finances, Tyga insists that the Kardashians are puppeteers of the press, and planted those negative stories about his life. To prove his point, he asked if we’ve read one negative story since their breakup. To be fair, it’s possible we haven’t read ANY stories, negative or positive, since people care way less about Tyga now that he’s not with Kylie Jenner.
  • He claims responsibility for Kylie Jenner and Blac Chyna’s style. According to Tyga, both Kylie and Chyna got “glowed up” because of him. Their looks changed, their bodies changed, and their image therefore changed.
  • Tyga warned Rob Kardashian about Blac Chyna. Though he’s not specific, it’s clear he thinks Chyna is high maintenance, and Rob is not the man for the task. When pressed for more details, Tyga simply said “you see it.” Enough said.
  • Tyga won’t admit that he’s a sexual predator who left his then Baby Mamma for a fifteen year old girl. As for when he and Kylie first began dating, he says they were “friends” until she turned 18.
  • He did not approve of Kylie and Kendall’s controversial t-shirts.
  • He did buy Kylie a car, but she also bought him a car, which means they basically bought themselves a car.

Miley Cyrus Takes a New Direction With “Malibu” –

It’s no secret that Miley Cyrus’ career has long-suffered from an identity crisis. Her barely-there ensemble beside Robin Thicke gained attention (for all the wrong reasons), and her subsequent antics, poor clothing choices, and attention-grabbing interviews felt more like an inauthentic cry for attention than an artist in their truest form. I have zero issues with women using their sexuality to sell records, and I also have zero issues with artistic statements that turn heads. But Miley Cyrus felt inauthentic, and her descent began with her breakup from Liam Hemsworth. It’s as if she felt boxed in, and in an effort to prove her individuality, what followed was train wreck rebellion. Now, she’s back with Liam, and judging from her beautiful recent release of “Malibu,” it’s become clear that Liam has brought her the kind of happiness that produces good music. I hate to suggest that a man is propelling her talent, so lets just say she seems to be in a better place. Also, the song is very clearly about the love they share.

Angelina Jolie v. Brad Pitt: A Look at a Romance Gone Wrong

No one was more surprised about the demise of Brangelina than myself. First, they did seem in love. Second, they had six kids, and one would think they’d work through their issues. Third, they have openly declared their love, most notably after Angelina Jolie underwent surgery to remove her ovaries and breasts in a preemptive effort to avoid cancer. And lastly, their relationship began with an affair, and though that is no indicator of long-lasting love, I simply assumed that if Mr. Smith wanted to leave America’s Sweetheart for Mrs. Smith, he’d have a damn good reason. And speaking of America’s Sweetheart, her new Prince Charming had something poignant to say, with Justin Theroux explaining that “As a child of divorce, all I can say is that’s terrible news for those children.” As for Jennifer Aniston, she has remained silent, but the meme-sphere is on overdrive, and the general implication is that Brangelina got what they deserved. After all, didn’t they endlessly brag about falling in love on set while Pitt was in fact married to another women? And let’s not forget their W Magazine spread touting their fake family in the name of art.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were a notoriously private couple. They had an air-tight team who never leaked stories, leading tabloids to use their typical guesses, such as “they’re on the verge of splitting,” with no additional details. At some point everyone is on the verge of splitting, so the more darts you throw, the more likely you are to ultimately hit a target. But now that they’re actually splitting, the leaks have become Niagara Falls.Suddenly Brad Pitt is an angry drunk that got physical with the children who are “now recovering” from an incident on a plane. The shocking revelation has one purpose and one purpose only: to tank his career. It serves her no favor in court, and it certainly is not helpful to the children, who now have an even more focused lens on their lives. Why does the public need to know about their personal problems? If the children need to be protected from their father, then keep that private. It also doesn’t help Angelina’s PR, because we all remember the pre-charitable woman who wore those vials of blood and said off-color remarks in nearly every interview. It’s possible she did not want to be blamed for the breakup, but this isn’t the way to circumvent that scrutiny. In fact, it escalates it.

Tabloids have long speculated that when Brad Pitt took up with Angelina, he lost all his friends, stopped filming sex scenes as per her demand, and used his nice-guy demeanor to make up for her cold temperament that was often noticed on the red carpet. George Clooney’s shocked reaction to the news of their split further confirms his estrangement with Brad, despite the fact that tabloids often tout the twosome as good friends. As for his non-public friends, who knows. All we know is that six children are in the mix, and I’m confused as to why Pitt’s perilous temperament didn’t surface earlier, perhaps before child number 3, 4, 5, or 6. For two people who once loved each other, one would think they could handle this with a tad more grace, integrity, and respect. I often tell people to leave their relationships with the same dignity with which they entered it. But since their relationship began sans dignity, perhaps they should have taken the opposite of my advice this one time.
