Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are at War Over a Song They Secretly Co-Wrote

There’s brand new drama between Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris, over a secret collaboration they did while they were still together.

It turns out Taylor co-wrote Calvin’s track with Rihanna, “This Is What You Came For”. But she didn’t want credit, so she used the pseudonym Nils Sjöberg, and retained a piece of the publishing rights.

There had been rumors that Taylor had a hand in the song, but yesterday TMZ ran a story suggesting Taylor pretty much wrote it, and he just came up with the beat.

After that, Taylor’s rep said, quote, “Taylor Swift wrote ‘This Is What You Came for’ under the pseudonym Nils Sjöberg.” And that set Calvin off.

He was diplomatic at first:

Then he got a little defensive:

After that, things got personal:

The “Katy” Calvin is referring to is obviously Taylor’s nemesis, Katy Perry, and while she didn’t tag anyone, after this all went down, she tweeted:

Going back to the TMZ story for a minute. They say the chaos over “This Is What You Came For” may have actually caused their breakup. Because after the song came out, Calvin was on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show. Ryan asked him if he’d ever work with Taylor, and he said, quote, “You know we haven’t even spoken about it. I can’t see it happening though.” That upset her, and a few days later she was at the Met Gala, dancing with Tom Hiddleston.

One last note: Calvin has made about $354,000 from the song so far. Taylor has made $193,000. He gets more because he’s co-writer and performer.

Victoria Beckham Kissed Her Daughter on the Lips, Is That Weird?

Is it appropriate to kiss your kids on the mouth? It seems like it should be, as long as it’s just an innocent, closed-lips sign of affection. But Victoria Beckham found out that, in the court of public opinion, that’s not necessarily the case. Sunday was her daughter Harper’s 5th birthday, and she celebrated with a picture of the two of them kissing on the lips. And some people couldn’t handle it. One said, quote, “Eww sorry, I’m old fashioned, it looks like they’re making out.” Some idiot said, quote, “That’s one passionate kiss right there. Hope she gets so passionate with David Beckham.” Another person said that what makes the picture creepy is Victoria tilting her head. As if it’s less innocent than a straight-up nose-to-nose kiss. So here’s the big question: Is it cool or creepy to kiss your kids on the lips? And does head position matter? Get more here.

Is Charlie Sheen Finally Working on a Reality Show?

Ever since the big Charlie Sheen meltdown of 2011, we’ve been predicting his eventual transition to reality TV. And it might finally be happening. According to “Us Weekly”, he’s pitching a show about living with HIV, and his life in general. A source said, quote, “He’s met with various producers. He’d really open up and allow the cameras inside his world.” Which would have been way more interesting before he calmed down. Get more here.

Jennifer Aniston Was Cut Out of Her Mother’s Will, But She’ll Probably Survive

Jennifer Aniston and her mother Nancy Dow were estranged for years, even though Jennifer continued to support her financially. And while they did reconnect in the weeks before Nancy died in May, she still cut Jennifer out of her will. Don’t worry, Jennifer’s going to make it. Nancy really “only” had a condo and about a million bucks to bequeath, and Jennifer’s worth an estimated $150 million. But there’s something else at play here. Nancy left everything to another relative, and that “everything” includes a collection of personal writings about her daughter. A source said, quote, “She wrote down everything about Jen, and that material is now in the hands of someone who could profit from it.” Nancy already aired some of their dirty laundry in her 1999 book, “From Mother and Daughter to Friends: A Memoir” which didn’t help their relationship at all.

So Of Course, There’s a New Pokemon Movie in the Works

Open Facebook right now and look at the first post in your newsfeed. It’s about Pokemon Go, isn’t it? Of course it is, because that’s all anybody’s talking about right now. After that stupid app came out, Nintendo’s stock jumped 25%, and the company’s worth jumped by $9 billion. So of course, movie studios are hustling to strike a deal to make a new Pokemon movie. Since there’s no deal yet, we obviously have no idea what the movie will be like. Get more here.
