Taylor Swift takes a page from Rihanna in her new video “I Knew You Were Trouble,” but the result isn’t quite amazing.
Pop music updates – December 10, 2012
- Taylor Swift is one dating machine! Her newest victim? One Direction’s Harry Styles, who flew to London with Swift on her private jet.
- James Struthers recently released his “This Christmas” EP on iTunes. Check out the music video for his super sweet holiday original “Still Gonna Feel Like Christmas” below.

It’s no secret that I am not a fan of Taylor Swift’s Red lead single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” Thankfully, not everything from Taylor’s new album is some catchy-but-unbearable pop track because “Begin Again” is actually nice. The single sees Taylor Swift getting back to her country-folksy roots. featuring instrumentation that is more along the veins of her past hit “White Horse.”
- Rihanna has a girl crush on Beyoncé. The “Where Have You Been” songstress tweeted the following accompanied by a photo of Beyoncé: This pic could single handedly destroy the self esteem of an entire nation instagr.am/p/ONtUnbhM3W/
- Via MTV: Taylor Swift announces new album Red and unveils lead single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”. Truth be told, I am not the biggest Taylor Swift fan, but with collaborations with Ed Sheeran and Max Martin, I am at least curious. As for the song, let me just say that Taylor probably should stick to country. #justsayin
Let me start off by saying that I’m out of the loop with this whole Hunger Games phenomenon. As of today, I still haven’t seen the movie or read any of the books. I have a vague idea of what the movie is all about, but for the most part, I don’t count myself a fan.
By accident though, I heard “Safe and Sound”, Taylor Swift‘s collaboration with The Civil Wars and the soundtrack’s official first single. Although I like Taylor Swift, I was surprised by how much I liked “Safe and Sound”. The song piqued my interest and I downloaded the album.
