    I had never see one of those vids before I saw the parody one . . . and now that I have, that is totally true! I can't find the gif of Eleanor saying that she knew that Tahani belonged in The Bad Place because 'Tahani said she was Taylor Swift's best friend but that Taylor Swift wasn't her best friend' ...

    Yeah, there was a stretch of time where she was papped coming out of a dance studio a gazillion times in a row and people thought she was secretly going to a studio to record and the dance place was just a decoy, but I think she was genuinely just trying to learn how to dance better.







    She was probably really proud of all the modern dance stuff she got to do in the Delicate video.

    Oh, Lawdy, don't encourage me, y'all!


    But since you did, here's an obnoxiously long AMAs post . . ..




    I'm digging Taylor dressing as a 60s mod disco ball:














    It's Balmain 2019, apparently, so that means it is clothing from the (very near) future!. IN 2019 WE WILL ALL DRESS AS SHINY DISCO ROBOTS.




    A hair and make-up close-up:











    Yep, it's pretty good. All of it was pretty good, even though the dress and boots looked hella uncomfortable to walk and sit in.



    But! I'm mad at the AMAs! WHY U NO LET TAYLOR SWIFT SAY SHIT ON MY TEEVEE???













    This link might still have the whole performance on it: https://streamable.com/5aoll




    One thing I noticed during the actual performance of IDSB that I haven't seen mentioned (and can't find a pic of?) was that a guy dressed vaguely like Loki came out to dance with her during the HIddlewiddle verse. I'm not the only one who saw that, right?

    It looked kinda like this costume, but in red and black instead of green:







    Maybe I'm just going crazy and seeing things. MAYBE I'M NOT.




    I do love how so many outlets assumed the 'narcissist' and 'talk shit' verses were about Trump, thereby erasing Coolio Hoovertown from Taylor's narrative once again.









    Swifties were freaking out most about Karyn popping up during the I Did Something Bad performance, though, because Taylor doesn't normally use the snakes for that song.











    Karyn even trended worldwide! Joe must be proud.











    Taylor acknowledged Karyn's impact:










    It was the first time she's performed at an awards show in 3 years, so I'm not surprised that the production was so over the top. Of course she had to drag a six story snake on to the stage. Of course she did.



    She did win 4 awards, which I think justified the whole spectacle:











    That beats Whitney's record, and she's two away from beating Michael Jackson's. But of course, she won't be able to win those two now that she has most unfortunately Dixie Chick'ed herself. Sad!








    Her Artist of The Year acceptance was the only one where she touched on the political, when she said "this award and every single award being given out tonight were voted on by the people . . . and you know what else is voted on BY THE PEOPLE . . . the midterm elections on November 6th. Get out and vote, I love you guys." So obvs that made new headlines again.

    Swiped these gifs from a k blog:












    A lot has changed since Taylor was 22 back in 2011! The world is quite a bit different now.










    Anyway, voter regs have spiked AND Taylor's albums are rising, so this was mos def a win? Tree! Paine! seems proud enough.

















    I guess that answers the question of WHO CARES WHAT TAYLOR SWIFT THINKS?













    . . .. and that answers the outcry of YOUR CAREER IS NOW OVAH YOU SECOND RATE DIXIE CHICK.







    Okay, the delusional big K quote of the day: Amaaaazing how all tinhatting is really the same tinhatting. Before she attended a Rep show last month, that same Big K posted (several times) an invitation to Tree and Taylor to meet her in person and ask her to stop spreading the k gospel and take her blog down and if they didn't do that she would take it as a sign that errrything she believed was right and they wanted her to continue to fight the good fight. Ha. You can guess what happened. ...

    The amount of discussion one popstar's post is causing out there is kERRRAzy. And the most random people, too . . .











    Gotta wonder if she knew there would be quite so much chatter? This will probably draw a looooot of attention to her public appearance tomorrow night. So @taylorswift13 has every right to be political but it wonít impact election unless we allow 13 yr old girls to vote. Still with #MarshaBlackburn— Gov.

    Internet's back up, hallelu! Gonna post the actual endorsement here for those who don't have insta: View this post on Instagram Iím writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which Iíll be voting in the state of Tennessee. In the past Iíve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now. I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent. I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love. Running for Senate in the state of Tennessee is a woman named Marsha Blackburn. As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me. She voted against equal pay for women. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples. She also believes they should not have the right to marry. These are not MY Tennessee values. I will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives. Please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote based on who most closely represents your values. For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway. So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count. But first you need to register, which is quick and easy to do. October 9th is the LAST DAY to register to vote in the state of TN. Go to vote.org and you can find all the info. Happy Voting! A post shared by Taylor Swift (@taylorswift) on Oct 7, 2018 at 4:33pm PDT I think she was a little nervous about doing this, because after she posted on insta and she went right to tumblr to see actual Swifties react to it (she liked a buuuuunch of supportive posts late last night). I don't want to embed very many because it'll make this page hard to load, but here are some quotes she liked: . . . and dozens more like that. So she must have gone straight to tumblr and parked herself there awhile. She also liked a tumblr post of a screenshot of Katy Perry liking her instagram post which is a very 2018 thing to have just typed out. ...

    Yeah . . . given that Karlie is marrying into a not-even-that-coy-about-it bona fide crime family, and again, neither she nor Josh seem to be honestly distancing themselves, I'd be super surprised if Taylor does go to this wedding.

    But she's surprised me before!





    That's the thing! Unless you use your privileged access to chant "STOP PUTTING CHILDREN IN CAGES" at every possible Javanka opportunity, I just don't know how anyone supposedly so good and pure and compassionate can square all of this fascist-adjacent socializing with their conscience at all. Even if she spends all the rest of her time scrubbing toilets in orphanages!



    It's a real brand disconnect for Karlie, which I assume that Cosmo blurb...

    Yeah, the reviews have been over the top for Rep. Almost makes me sorry that I didn't try to get tkts to the ATL show for me and the ogirl.













    Ha. Yes, I do hope she got her answer, one way or the other. Do we know anybody who knows anybody who knows JLaw? cause she's prob got THE DEETS.



    Someone else relevant to JLaw was also there:









    (and Nicholas Hoult is part of the cast, so the whole event must have been weirdish for Jen.)




    So I've been storing up bits and pieces of Taylor and Kaylor stuff, but didn't know if anyone really cared and there was a dumb old hurricane anyway so I didn't post, but I guess I could dump it here now? Some of these links and pics might not work anymore though, so I might have to post first and then do clean-up.



    Working backwards through my notes . . .



    So! Sept 28th was Taylor and Joe's 2 yr anniversary, and it was also the night his movie with Emma Stone and Olivia Coleman (The Favourite) premiered in NYC, and Taylor (shockingly!) attended (which is why she and JLaw were seen together). Taylor didn't walk the carpet with Joe:










    . . . but was spotted coming out of the event:















    . . . and also at the after party:











    and then going back to her apartment in Tribeca afterwards:
















    I like her dress, her hair, and all of it. Her hair is getting really long!

    It was a big night for the paps, because they haven't gotten anything at all of her lately.



    Oh! and the fact that Joe wore blue to the premiere got the ks excited! because blue means it's almost over! FINALLY.





    http://taytaysbeard.tumblr.com/post/178660165499/all-beards-wore-blue-on-their-last-date-do-you







    Also, they think the x's on Tay's dress either means "x marks the spot" from Getaway Car (and therefore a secret signal to them that this is the last Tay and Joe public bearding obligation EVAH) or ACTUALLY a K and a T mashed together and therefore a secret signal to them that Karlie was waiting inside the apt for Taylor and all Joe did was walk in the front and then walk out the back (Taylor's apt building doesn't have a back exit, but wevs).


    Personally, I just think it's a Fall-esque dress that her stylist chose which she kinda liked. BUT WHAT DO I KNOW.



    In installment 2.0 of WORLDS COLLIDING, Nina went to the New Orleans Rep show with Ruby Rose and another friend a week or so ago:


















    Which has got the ks doubling down on their brand new Nina = Gold Star Lesbian narrative:





    * uh . . . . Nian lived together for three years? That would be some pretty intense PR commitment, for reals.







    ** she really hasn't.


    If Neens has decided that she's now open to dipping into the ladypond, and if Ruby is bona fide her shiny new girlf, that's awesome! But retroactively giving gold star status to someone who's lowkey been spinning on a carousel of boys since 2013 is pretty funny.

    She and Ruby have been friends since filming XXX obvs, but they definitely don't hang out more/or even as much as Nina does with other peeps. And y'all ks are straight up (pun not intended) ignoring that there was another friend with them and it wasn't like a date or anything. But hey, keep dreaming, ks.


    (In similar WORLDS COLLIDE news, many many ks are also supercorpers who whole heartedly believe that Melissa Benoist and Katie McGrath are doing the sekrity fuckity, and they haaaaaate ONB with a fiery passion which is also verray amusing to me.)



    Anyway, they only want to prove Nina is gay to reinforce the idea that Taylor chooses mostly gay women to hang with . . . and yes, the reputed female lover connections do get confuzzling, so here's a handy k'lor map:













    So many sekrit girlfriends! I mean, you can't argue with a map, right?


    As far as Karlie herself goes, so far the Nashville show really has been a one off. There's been no new interactions between Taylor and Karlie at all since then. She's been papped with Josh in NYC a couple of times, but done nothing else Taylor related. That's deflated the peeps that thought this was a step forward in k'lor being 'public' again.



    Someone who was at the Nashville also popped the k bubble a little bit:















    And yeah, this was a pretty credible witness who posted a bunch of pics from the show, is a long time Karlie fan, and also posted this:









    So weird that Karlie decided to involve her fake fiance right when her REAL WIFE was singing a song she wrote about her! Sooooooo weird.



    Taylor herself struck another blow to the 'Rep is About Karlie' timeline . . . Taylor, talking about Reputation as a whole album: "And when the album came out, itís legitimately an album about finding love throughout all the noise.":









    http://speaknow.tumblr.com/post/177548883397/so-this-is-a-song-about-real-love-and-finding





    Also according to Taylor, she spent that particular New Year's Eve in London:




    http://www.cmt.com/news/1788832/the-...new-years-day/







    And oh, hey, Joe was in London as well at that time huh. COINKYDINK.



    Okay, so where was Karlie on New Year's in 2016? At a Russian oligarch's party on St.Barth's with Josh . . . totally not in London? Totally not with Taylor?










    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz...St-Barths.html









    https://pagesix.com/2017/01/02/how-t...new-years-eve/






    For the record, Roman Abramovich is a billionaire who is closely tied to Putin, Trump and the Kushners. It is his wife who was sitting with Ivanka and Karlie at the US Open in 2016, and who is in the St.Barth's pic at the top. Abramovich was recently banned from the UK because of his 'dirty money' connections. He is just one of the Russian billionaires and pals of Putin that Karlie has partied with as the future Mrs.Kushner.



    Also hanging with Karlie there? Rupert Murdoch's daughters:


    https://cdn-images-1.medium.com/max/...T0sAQN93Fg.png



    (pics aren't posting, so turning them to links).



    Okay, side rant . . . Karlie is friends with Wendi Deng, Rupert Murdoch's ex-wife who also dated Putin, and who is the one who introduced Ivanka and Jared.




    https://cdn-images-1.medium.com/max/...UuXXUZeMhg.png

    https://cdn-images-1.medium.com/max/..._hKPZ8FtvA.png




    I mean . . . this woman VOLUNTEERED to sleep with RUPERT MURDOCH and VLADIMIR PUTIN. WD was like, "YES IMMA SEX THESE EVIL VULTURES UP MULTIPLE TIMES OVER YEARS AND YEARS". So for Karlie, this is like saying, "oh yeah, I'm besties with Eva Braun."

    KARLIE WHYYYYYYY.


    You know, I'd be better able to buy Josh as 'the good Kushner' if he and Karlie had actually distanced themselves from Javanka and the rest of his family's super icky associates, but they have not done that. Josh and Jared are apparently partners in an investment group. Josh has been handling the family money. They have clearly always hung out with Javanka.



    https://cdn-images-1.medium.com/max/..._OGgfRzYDA.png




    And the super icky people? Those are their friends, too! So I gotta conclude that Karlie and Josh might actually be kinda icky as well, despite who they claim to have voted for in 2016.

    (https://medium.com/@amyohconnor/on-n...g-9af4627e4be9)




    Anyway, Josh are Karlie are supposedly getting married in 2019 in NJ:







    I'm sure Taylor loooooves having her name listed right there with Trump's Favorite Barbie Daughter.



    And Karlie is trying to be all "the fact that the majority of his fam are fascist kleptocrats aligned with muderous authoritarian dictators" is like, okay sure, a TEENY bit inconvenient but wevs I DON'T CARE because LOOOOOVE REASONS:
