Taylor Swift would not be a victim again
Taylor Swift has been in the midst of a court case in which she alleged that radio DJ David Mueller groped her during a meet-and-greet in 2013. He denied it, then countersued because he lost his job. And here we are. Swift was called to the stand late last week and make no mistake, Mueller’s attorney, Gabe McFarland, had no idea what was in store for him. Because Swifty handled it like a freakin’ pro.
First off, rather than “sir,” she referred to McFarland as “Gabe.” Amazing. Then any question “Gabe” had for her, Tay responded in a professional yet snarky manner that needs a standing ovation. For instance, when asked why she continued meeting her fans after the alleged incident, “Gabe” suggested that Taylor could have taken a break if she was truly upset by what happened. She replied: “And your client could have taken a normal photo with me.”
McFarland then wondered aloud why her bodyguard wasn’t around to protect her and allow the alleged assault to happen, she retorted, “No, I am critical of your client sticking his hand under my skirt and grabbing my ass.”
As for a photo of Swift and Mueller on the night in question, McFarland said it appeared as though nothing visibly inappropriate was happening. Swift: “Gabe, this is a photo of him with his hand up my skirt — with his hand on my ass. You can ask me a million questions — I’m never going to say anything different. I never have said anything different.”
He then asked why her skirt didn’t look askew, and she replied, “Because my ass is located in the back of my body.”
At the end, when McFarland asked how Swift felt about Mueller losing his job, she had this to say: “I’m not going to allow you or your client make me feel in any way that this is my fault. Here we are years later, and I’m being blamed for the unfortunate events of his life that are the product of his decisions — not mine.” And when asked if she thought he got what he deserved by being fired, Tay said, “I don’t feel anything about Mr. Mueller. I don’t know him.”
Whether she was coached or that’s just how cool she is under pressure, her matter-of-fact answers left the judge no choice but to completely agree with the singer and dismiss Mueller’s case against her. Brava.
So Brangelina, you’re telling us there’s a chance?
It’s been nearly a year since Angelina Jolie split from Brad Pitt but there have been multiple reports saying the divorce might be on hold.
“It’s true that the divorce is not moving forward right now,” an insider told E! News. “They are taking a breather and seeing what happens.”
With bombshell interviews from both, it seemed as good as done. But some are suggesting that Pitt’s shift to a healthier life is what’s giving Jolie some pause.
“A lot has changed since Angelina filed,” the source said, adding, “They don’t take divorce lightly and want to make sure they are doing the right thing.”
Of course, thing can change on a dime, so until we see them as one big family, we’re just going to cross our fingers and toes and not get our hopes up.
Yes, a girl who isn’t interested in Justin Bieber does exist
Remember the name Jessica Gober. The 22-year-old from Savannah, Ga., just rejected Justin Bieber and people can’t believe it. It started with a video of her on Instagram promoting an energy drink.
Then something crazy happened. Bieber somehow saw the post and DM’ed the gym where she works to find out who she is.
Did this actually just happen… lmao
Justin Bieber just messaged the gym that I work at and asked who I was hahahaha WTF pic.twitter.com/mktcdB1iDP

Naturally people went on the attack because she passed up the opportunity but Gober had the best response to silence the Disbeliebers.
I've got everything I need right here 💓 pic.twitter.com/mET9XXkM8d

She told Buzzfeed that she was flattered, and didn’t think Bieber was “being creepy” or “inappropriate,” but is happy with her boyfriend. Oh, well. Maybe next time, Biebs.
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom might be back together
Ed Sheeran played the Staples Center Saturday night and while celebs tend to flock to performances there, there were two people in attendance who may have caused some of Sheeran’s spotlight to spread to them.
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, who broke up earlier this year, may have just been on a break because the two were there looking super-snuggly, according to witnesses. “They definitely seemed like they’re back together,” one concertgoer told E! News. “They cuddled most of the night. She sat on his lap most of the night and shared kisses.”
I didn’t take the best pictures of them because I was also crying cuss Ed was performing 😭 my emotions were all over the place! pic.twitter.com/faj8Y5frPs

E! News also reported this wasn’t the first time they’ve hung out since their split so maybe they’re just good friends who still text and talk? And hang out and cuddle at concerts. Then go home together afterwards. Who knows?
Sylvester Stallone officially joined This Is Us
The action star began filming the hit series This Is Us on Saturday and documented it all on social media, because he’s a giver like that.
But getting wi-fi was a bit of a struggle, and he posted that while he’s able to get online in Bulgaria, Santa Clarita, Calif., has been a different story.
THIS One of the great mysteries in MY live!!! We can travel to the far ends of the UNIVERSE , yet , it's hard to find a decent local cell site!????! A MINI CELL PHONE HORROR movies starring Sylvester Stallone and Chrissy Metz … and thank you Dan Fogelman you have created a great show.#thisisus @chrissymetz
He was able to post pics with “good buddy” and Rocky Balboa co-star Milo Ventimiglia (whom he credits for inviting him on for the guest stint).
Another snap showed him getting punched by Chrissy Metz. (Damn, girl, don’t get on her bad side.)
And finally, with Justin Hartley, who’ll be sharing the most screen time with Stallone, as Sly’s character — a big star on the film Hartley’s character, Kevin, is cast in — becomes a father figure to him.
Is it Sept. 26 yet? Because that’s when This Is Us returns to CTV. We’ll be here, waiting, ready with a Costco-sized box of tissues.
