While Taylor has now broken records in the pop genre, Little Big Town insists she hasn’t completely parted with her country roots.

“She’s a Nashville songwriter,” Little Big Town‘s Karen Fairchild told USA Today. “When you write a song like “Better Man” top to bottom on your own with your acoustic guitar, that’s Nashville. She’s a storyteller. She loves country music. Her last record was more poppy but who knows? Taylor can do anything she wants to. And she will forever be a Nashville girl.”

Lena Dunham Defends Taylor Swift's Right to Not Speak Out About Politics

Taylor Swift was under fire this past election cycle for not publicly endorsing a candidate, as some celebrities did, and now, her pal Lena Dunham is coming to her defense.

“I just think everyone has to do it their way. When I was lesser known, I was like, “Who could not share their opinion?” Then I found out that when you talk about politics, people straight up tweet you the floor plan of your house and say they’re coming to your house. You have to fucking watch it because people are nuts,” Lena told Rolling Stone.

“She’s been in the public eye since she was 15. I felt young when my career started and I was 23, 24. When I met her, she was newly 22, and she was a f*cking seasoned pro at this stuff. Watching the way that she understands the vicissitudes of the cycle, and she just keeps making her work, – that’s just really impressive to me. That’s how I hope to live my life, which is not as a slave to public opinion, but just as somebody who continues to make things,” Lena continued.

Frank Ocean Calls Taylor Swift's Grammy Win Over Kendrick Lamar 'Faulty' In New Open Letter

Frank Ocean is calling out Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich and show writer David Wild in a new open letter posted to his Tumblr account.

The 29-year-old singer, who will not be attending tonight’s ceremony, cites Taylor Swift‘s 2016 win over Kendrick Lamar for Album of the Year as “hands down one of the most ‘faulty’ TV moments I’ve seen.”

This was in response to Ken telling Rolling Stone about Frank‘s 2013 performance, “We executed his vision knowing that it was faulty. And we tried to tell him that, we tried to tell his management that, we tried to tell the record label that. So, his feelings about the Grammys right now, I would imagine, probably go back to that in one way. But honestly, it wasn’t us.”

“Yea yea, my 2013 performance at the Grammys was absolute sh-t,” Frank wrote. Technical difficulties, blah blah. Thanks for the reminder. Very much appreciated. F-ck that performance, though. You think that’s why I kept my work out of the Grammys process this year? Don’t you think I would’ve wanted to play the show to ‘redeem’ myself if I felt that way?”

Tom Hiddleston Discusses Taylor Swift Relationship, Explains 'I Heart T.S.' Tank Top

Tom Hiddleston is speaking all about his relationship with Taylor Swift, which ended several months ago, in his GQ March 2017 cover story.

Here’s what the 35-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On his relationship with Taylor: “Taylor is an amazing woman. She’s generous and kind and lovely, and we had the best time. Of course it was real….So we decided to go out for dinner, we decided to travel…She’s incredible. A relationship in the limelight…A relationship always takes work. And it’s not just the limelight. It’s everything else.”

On the “I <3 T.S." tank top he wore: “The truth is it was the Fourth of July and a public holiday and we were playing a game and I slipped and hurt my back. And I wanted to protect the graze from the sun and said, ‘Does anyone have a T-shirt?’ And one of her friends said, ‘I’ve got this…and we all laughed about it. It was a joke. It was a joke. Among friends.”

On the conspiracy theories that their relationship was fake: “I have to be so psychologically strong about not letting other people’s interpretations about my life affect my life. A relationship exists between two people. We will always know what it was. The narratives that are out there altogether have been extrapolated from pictures that were taken without consent or permission, with no context. Nobody had the context for that story. I’m still trying to work out a way of having a personal life and protecting it, but also without hiding. So the hardest thing is that that was a joke among friends on the Fourth of July…I just, I was surprised. I was just surprised that it got so much attention. The tank top became an emblem of this thing.”

Lena Dunham Defends Taylor Swift's Love Life

Lena Dunham is coming to the defense of her friend Taylor Swift following recent criticism of her of her love life.

While making an appearance on the Howard Stern Show, the 30-year-old Girls star explained that she believed Taylor was unfairly judged.

“I think that young woman…it’s so hard. I think about the relationships that I had in my early twenties and if they had been public, it would’ve been a disaster,” Lena said.

She added, “And also, I mean, not to repeat age-old feminist points, but it’s like you know, any male actor her age who’s going out and dating is applauded and to just have a perfectly normal amount of romantic partners but be held to impossibly high standards by the press, like it’s just an unfair and unwinnable game.”
