Taylor Swift Accused of Ruining a Public Beach for Personal ReasonsS

Taylor Swift, the capricious god of jam-making and having an emotion, has decided to shift the foundations of the seafloor as a message to mortals that her summer mansion shall not be trifled with.

According to an irate op-ed penned by one of the unfortunate humans who lives beside her, the singer is creating a massive wall of boulders on a public beach without so much as a single permit; she's also possibly doing damage to the ocean bottom. BUT WHO NEED TRIFLE WITH PERMITS WHEN YOU ARE REARRANGING THE VERY FACE OF THE EARTH? [The Day]

Unfortunately for everyone who appreciates a good feud that mostly centers around the placement of several large rocks, though, the op-ed was pretty factually inaccurate. Taylor Swift got several permits. She is putting the boulders back where they belong (you're welcome, Mother Earth). The beach is private; it belongs to Taylor Swift. The ocean bottom is totally chill. T-Swift's honor as a landscape artist remains intact. [The Day, ONTD]

Amanda Seyfried responded to TMZ's very ill-advised DOG RAPE STORY on Twitter. (The headline, for those of you who don't closely follow TMZ's rape jokes feed, was "Amanda Seyfried's Dog Rapes Other Dog.") "@tmz -The encounter between Finn and unnamed Labrador was consensual," Seyfried wrote. "#dangerouswordtomakelightof #hardhittingjournalism #Pulitzer." Very well-articulated in just three choice hashtags. [Gossip Cop]

Well, this is certainly interesting: tomorrow Lady Gaga will releasing a new version of "Do What U Want," featuring the vocals of Christina Aguilera in the place of R Kelly. I mean, it's obviously a response to how well-received the duet was after the two originally performed it on the season finale of The Voice — but, still, part of me wonders if Lady Gaga wants to distance herself from R Kelly after that devastating Village Voice piece cured everyone of "R Kelly rapes and exploits young girls" amnesia.
