Taylor Swift Opens Up About Katy Perry Feud... To Say She'll Nev
Taylor Swift is never, ever, ever... going to openly discuss her rumored feud with Katy Perry.

She's not even going to acknowledge it. Is the feud even real? Does she even know Katy Perry? Swift's lips are sealed.

Here's what she said when asked about the feud:

"I'm not giving them anything to write about," Swift told The Telegraph. "I'm never going to talk about her in my interview. It's not going to happen."

However, that statement comes with a lengthy disclaimer.

"It's not real if someone appears to never have any issues with anyone," Swift added. "I have my friends. I have enemies....

'The View' Host Whoopi Goldberg TEARS Into Giuliana Rancic - 'Sh
Man, Giuliana Rancic is being dragged over the coals for this Zendaya thing. The Oscars were last weekend, and people are still talking about it.

And the latest source of Giuliana Rancic fever is "The View," where the show's stars debated her remarks, and Whoopi Goldberg laid out some harsh truths.

"She's not Joan Rivers," Goldberg stated bluntly. "Unless you know how to make jokes, don't do it."

"Giuliana is a newbie. She is not a stand-up. We don't know her as a funny person. And so the joke doesn't sound like a joke."

"I have had dreads for 40 years, and never have I smelled like pat...

Giuliana Rancic Apologizes To Zendaya, For Real This Time (Watch
Giuliana Rancic already apologized once for insinuating that Disney star Zendaya "smells like pachouli oil or weed. Maybe weed."

But it wasn't that great of an apology- or an apology at all, really. Once the backlash hit, Rancic sent a quick apology Tweet to Zendaya, saying:

"I'm sorry I offended you and others. I was referring to a bohemian chic look. Had NOTHING to do with race and NEVER would!!!"

But "I'm sorry I offended you" is a little backhanded, so now Rancic's making a full, impassioned plea for mercy.

On camera at E!, Rancic said she was "so, so sincerely sorry" for the statem...

Mo'Nique remembers. And she knows why, too. Apparently, she's been "blackballed" by Hollywood.

The comedian/actress revealed what's been going on in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter. Apparently, she learned the truth from "Precious" director Lee Daniels.

"I got a phone call from Lee Daniels maybe six ...

Does Jay Z Have A Long Lost Son? And Why Is That Son Suing Him?
Nothing ruins a celebrity's day worse than a love child from 20+ years ago showing up at your doorstep. Or suing you, for financial and emotional damages.

Both just happened to Jay Z- a man named Rymir Satterthwaite now claims that the megastar rap mogul is his father, and had slept with his mother years before he was ever famous.

Jay-Z refuses to acknowledge Satterthwaite's claim to the Carter family name, so Sattherthwaite hit back with a lawsuit. According to the suit, Jay-Z used "fraudulent" information to get Sattherwaite's paternity claim thrown out and to dodge a DNA test.

Amazing...

Every form of social media known to man blew up with comments about Bey's pre-Photoshop face. Some saying she looked "like a cigarette smoker," others saying she looked like a normal human woman who simply hasn't been put through the digital skin-perfecting wringer.

Then, things got crazier. The Beyonce World, the site that first put up the leaked pics, took them down after outright harass...
