Taylor Swift's New Album Hints at Exes

28 October 2012 7:00 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

For the record, Taylor Swift did not name her fourth album, Red, after the bold color of lipstick she's been rocking. In the new press bio she wrote herself - just because she's Taylor like that - she explains: "I called it that because of the tumultuous, crazy adventures in love and loss that it chronicles. . . . In retrospect, it all looks red." Red comes out painting love in all sorts of hazy, even dark shades that are a long way from "Today Was a Fairytale." "Loving him is like driving a new Maserati down a dead-end street," Swift sings on the title tune, »

The X Factor Recap: Oh, Pairs! [Updated]

4 October 2012 6:37 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

A number of crimes involving the male torso went down on Thursday night’s installment of The X Factor. Simon Cowell rocked a neckline that plunged dangerously close to his netherregions. A member of boy band Emblem3 wore suspenders — without a shirt! (I’ll pause for a moment while you fight back the acrid taste of bile). And oh the sounds that got caught and killed in the chests of fresh-faced Willie Jones and wheelchair-bound Freddie Combs! (We’ll just assume the former’s were low and rumbly, in a bebeh-lock-them-dawwrs kinda way, and the latter’s were tremulous and overbaked. »

The Reign of Carly Rae Jepsen Is Over

15 August 2012 12:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It was a glorious run, filled with parody videos and politician sing-alongs, but the inevitable has happened: "Call Me Maybe" is no longer the No. 1 song on the Billboard "Hot 100." That spot now belongs to Flo Rida's highly suggestive "Whistle," which vaulted over Ellie Goulding's late-surging "Lights" and is — for the moment — your default Song of Summer Dos. But it is not too late for a pop miracle, friends! So if you want to honor of the memory of "Call Me Maybe," in all its wonder and innocence, it is time to embrace Taylor Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," which is already breaking iTunes sales records and seems poised for a giant "Hot 100" debut next week. It's what Carly would want! (Seriously, Carly would kill to have that song. Someone get Max Martin on the phone for her, maybe.) »

Taylor Swift 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' lyrics: Who is it about?

14 August 2012 1:54 AM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Taylor Swift's new single, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" shot to the top of the iTunes chart just hours after it was released on Monday evening, when Swift debuted it at a listening party for fans at her Nashville home. Though Swift says she didn't have any songwriting collaborators on her last album, Speak Now, her new album Red will feature a lot of new sounds courtesy of some big-name cowriters

Max Martin and Shellback are credited with writing "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" with Swift -- Martin, of course, being the prolific Swedish producer behind songs like Britney Spears' "...Baby One More Time" and Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone." Martin also worked with Avril Lavigne on four songs for her record "Goodbye Lullaby," so it's no surprise that Swift's new song has a very Avril sound to it -- relying on »

3 July 2012 4:40 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The Voice" coach Christina Aguilera is putting the focus back on her music - or at least she's trying to. The singer is rising from the ashes of her flop 2010 album "Bionic" - which failed to even reach "Gold" status with sales only slightly over 300,000 copies in the U.S. - with a planned new album and a first single that, according to Billboard, may see release as early as August. The untitled song, a club track produced by Swedish hitmaker extraordinaire Max Martin, has a chorus underpinned by the dubious sentiment, "All I want to do is what you »
