Taylor Swift Fan Sneaks Into Concert, Jumps Onstage, Gets Tackled
Taylor was performing in San Diego’s Petco Park on Saturday, when a crazed fan tried to get onstage. She was singing “Style” while walking down the catwalk, when 26-year-old Christian Ewing jumped onto the main stage. Guards were quick to react, but Christian fought back, breaking one security guards ribs. Of course it was all caught on camera, Taylor played it cool and pretty much ignored the situation. It turns out that Christian had snuck into the concert and had been dodging security all night. He was eventually subdued and arrested for felony and misdemeanor battery as well as obstruction, his bail is $35,000. Get more here.
Did Taylor Swift Break Wind at the “VMAs”?
Taylor Swift had an amazing night at the “VMAs”. She even got away with cutting the cheese. Almost. But a few people caught her, including some staffers at Buzzfeed. Remember when Taylor brought her whole “Bad Blood” girl posse with her to introduce her new video “Wildest Dreams”? Well, while she was making the announcement, there was a noise that sounds like it could be a rear emission. And if you watch it back, it looks like Taylor is the culprit. Hailee Steinfeld even puts her hands up to her nose right after it happens. We’re not accusing, but check out the evidence here.

President Obama Will Appear on “Running Wild with Bear Grylls”
We’ve gotten used to President Obama doing talk shows. But now he’s appearing on reality shows. Obama is going to be on “Running Wild with Bear Grylls.” The show where Bear teaches people how to survive in the wilderness by doing things like drinking their own pee. But Obama probably won’t go that far. Obama and Bear will head to the Alaskan wilderness, to highlight the effects of climate change. They didn’t say whether Obama would be swinging by Denali, the mountain he just renamed. The episode will be taped and air sometime later this year. Get more here.

Obviously, his stock shot up considerably after Sunday night’s “MTV Video Music Awards”. And his phone’s been blowing up, too. He’s been getting all kinds of offers to buy the site, some upwards of $80,000. He’s waiting to see how much Kanye West himself is willing to pay for it.
