Taylor Swift Is Obsessed with Beyonce and She Just Donated $50,000 to New York City Schools
Taylor Swift’s recent reconciliation with Kanye West is suddenly making a LOT more sense. Apparently, they share a mutual obsession with Beyonce – who is, like, one of the best at everything of all time. Taylor says, quote, “It’s normal for everyone to love Beyoncé, but I love her more than that amount, more than the normal amount.” She says it’s “arguable” that her obsession reaches an “unhealthy” level, and adds, quote, “I try really hard not to let it get creepy, I just really channel it into a joyous admiration and appreciation.” In another interview this week, Taylor said, quote, “[Beyoncé is] awesome, in a party scenario, the nicest, talking to everybody, dancing sometimes.” By the way, Taylor donated $50,000 in profits from her song “Welcome to New York” to New York City’s public schools, but some people are complaining because it’s a small amount, and Taylor reportedly made $64 million last year. But a rep says she will continue to send donations as the proceeds come in. Get the full story here.

Chris Brown Can’t Enter Canada
Chris Brown was forced to cancel a couple shows in Canada, because he was stopped at the border. He Tweeted, quote, “The good people of the Canadian government wouldn’t allow me entry. I’ll be back this summer.” His tweet was later deleted. We don’t know why he was blocked, but it must have something to do with his criminal record. Canadian officials say he can apply to return at a later date. For what it’s worth, the Internet seems to think Drake is behind all this, because they’re beefing right now.
