Taylor Swift went on a ride at Disneyland but it’s her bodyguard that was the real attraction
Taylor went to Disneyland with model Lily Aldridge and her daughter, and had the time of her life. She even shared a pic of the three of them riding Radiator Springs Racers at Disney California Adventure Park. Actually, scratch that. There were four of them. And while Taylor, Lily and Dixie were having the time of their lives, the man sitting in the back row behind them, clearly Tay’s bodyguard, looked like he would rather be anywhere but the Happiest Place on Earth.
The caption might say “Disney with the girls” but Tay’s forgotten about her security detail. Stone-faced and over it. That’s basically all of us after a long day at Disney, right?
Avril and Chad, back together in Canada
It only makes sense that Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger made a splashy red-carpet appearance in Winnipeg for this year’s Junos. The singers, who were married for two years before announcing their split, vowed to remain friends and, clearly, they’re keeping their promise.
“I came with Chad because Nickelback got nominated,” Avril told eTalk on the red carpet. “And I’m just here supporting him.”
Kroeger was jokier, saying, “I got tired walking around with my band members, so I went and found hottie here.”

Despite calling it quits seven months ago, the two have remained close. They partied at a pre-Grammy bash in February and regularly join each other in — and out — of the studio. Chavril are just kike Gwyneth and Chris, as amicable as it gets. Is it so terrible that we wish they could just make it work?
Kesha was offered her freedom … but she had to apologize and deny that she was ever raped
Well, this is gross. Yes, maybe just as gross as several weeks back when a judge denied Kesha’s request for a preliminary injunction that would have allowed her to release music outside of producer Dr. Luke‘s label. She filed an appeal but that’s where she’s at legally.
On Sunday, though, the singer posted on Instagram details of what it would take for her to earn back her freedom. And like we said, GROSS.
so. I got offered my freedom IF i were to lie. I would have to APOLOGIZE publicly and say that I never got raped. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS behind closed doors. I will not take back the TRUTH. I would rather let the truth ruin my career than lie for a monster ever again.

So she would’ve had to apologize publicly and recant her account of sexual assault. Um, NO.
Dr. Luke’s spokesperson was on top of things, telling Rolling Stone in a statement, “Kesha’s Instagram posting is false. The Court repeatedly stated Kesha is already free to record without Dr. Luke, and that she had not presented any facts supporting her claims. That’s because all the evidence—including Kesha’s own videotaped sworn testimony—show her allegations are false.”
The statement continued: “The only thing Kesha is not free to do is to continue to lie about Dr. Luke through publicity stunts and outrageous smears, ignoring the fact that by her own free will she went to work and entered new contracts with Dr. Luke years after this ‘incident’ supposedly happened. Her goal all along has been solely personal enrichment by seeking to break contracts that brought her success and millions so she can enter into more lucrative ones. We look forward to our day in court holding Kesha accountable for her lies.”
We’re not sure what’s going on. If Kesha is able to work outside of Dr. Luke’s involvement, wouldn’t that be the end of it? But their legal battle continues as the definition of freedom, or perceived freedom, is established. Kesha’s lawyers argue that Sony keeping her under contract with the producer is a form of slavery since she must keep working with his companies. Whatever is going on, this fight doesn’t look to be ending anytime soon. We can only hope everyone gets what they deserve.
Adam Levine confirms Behati’s pregnancy, even though we already knew it
Reports of Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo expecting their first child were out a while back but there wasn’t any actual announcement from the couple. For stars who aren’t in the market to overshare, they just let the growing belly speak for itself, which makes total sense.
But Levine couldn’t contain himself any longer and on Saturday, he officially confirmed it in the cutest way possible.

The bump is what most of our tummies look like after a good meal but it’s Adam’s caption of the photo of his wife. “My two favorite laker fans.” Love! And congratulations. Officially.
Justin Bieber has dreadlocks now and no one is happy
Bieber appeared at the IHeartRadio Awards with his new hairstyle but we all already got a sneak peek on Instagram.
Fans called him out, arguing that black hairstyles are more than just about what’s trendy and cannot simply be culturally appropriated.
Bieber : u know about cultural appropriation ?
Stylist : say no more

Justin Bieber has gotten to the point where you don’t even know what he appropriating,
Dreads, braids or straw hay pic.twitter.com/QPsVg1y0Yr

The same thing happened a few months back — albeit, to a lesser extent — when he posted a pic of himself with cornrows.
Hmm, maybe it’s not so much about having dreads, but more about finding a way to manage the straw he had been previously rocking. Though a pair of scissors or clippers are probably the better option, because you know it’s bad when even the most steadfast of Beliebers are cringing at it. Is it too late now for Biebs and his stylist to say sorry?
