On Sunday night, Kim Kardashian electrified the internet by revealing that Taylor Swift did, in fact, verbally approve the use of her name in Kanye West’s “Famous.” Five days of self-imposed house arrest later, Swift finally crept from her L.A. mansion for a little trip to the gym:
Swift, clad in a black Nike jacket, printed leggings and sunglasses, looked ready to go as she entered the gym with her iPhone headphones already in her ears. The 1989 singer’s iPhone screen appeared to be cracked. Hiddleston, who was driven by Swift’s security, was spotted sporting a black Nike top for his separate workout.
Why the gym? It’s hard to imagine that a star of Swift’s stature doesn’t have at least six workout facilities dotting the grounds of her estate. If you’re going to leave after five days, at least make it for something worthwhile, like the all-you-can-eat buffet at Golden Corral.
Also, by specifying that Hiddleston and Swift’s workouts were separate, I now find it utterly impossible to avoid picturing them both joylessly marching on a single StairMaster, bound by shared earbuds blasting “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy.”
On that note: It seems that Kanye West has an unlikely ally in Amber Rose, who defended him against the sly witch Swift during an episode of her show. Rose begins by saying how terrible West felt for interrupting Swift during the Great VMA Wars of ‘09, and how he learned his lesson:
“It was just a very hard time for him, and I was around to see that,” she adds. “I watched Lady Gaga cancel the tour. I watched people say that they did not want to work with him anymore because of it. And he really went through a lot of bulls—- and I know that Kanye would never ever go through that again by not calling Taylor and say, ‘Heads up, I’m about to go write this verse real quick. Just wanted to make sure you’re cool with it.’ I know that about Kanye.”
“So, I say all of that to say, why didn’t I get a phone call for using a naked wax figure in your video Kanye?” she adds. “I mean, Taylor gets a call but I don’t get a call. So please stay the f—- out of the news so I don’t need to talk about your ass anymore.”
How sweet, sort of.
