Taylor Swift is Currently Being DRAAAAAAAAAGED!!!

Karma has finally come-a-callin from Taylor Swift and her passive aggressive behind.

While in a relationship with Calvin Harris, the Diva had helped the Scottish DJ pen the lyrics for one of his songs. Not wanting to overshadow the project, which Rihanna ended up guesting on, Taylor decided to credit the lyrics to the pseudonym Nils Sjoberg.

Fast forward to the present, the pair have broken up and that song, This Is what You Came For, is making waves worldwide. So what does T-Swift go and do? Now she decides to come from behind the curtain and reveal her involvement in the project. (Yeah, yeah, it was "her team" that confirmed this, but I don't believe for one second this didn't get the okay from the top.)

Well. Mr. Harris, unlike her other beards partners, didn't like the implications of this, and had a little Twitter rant. And this is where the wider backlash began.

[#FreeKesha] Taylor Swift Donates Money To Kesha, Demi Lovato Remains (unim)Pressed

In the midst of a surprising amount of support from her fellow Divas, Kesha's musical career suffered another setback last week.

[Watch] Taylor Swift Opens The 2016 Grammy Awards With "Out Of The Woods"

*2016 GRAMMY SPOILER* Taylor Swift was the recipient of the coveted Album of the Year award at the 2016 Grammys for her smash, 1989. #SwiftiesRejoyce

But she didn't just win awards! The Diva also opened the show with a live rendition of Out Of The Woods. Surprisingly it was a simple performance with the spotlight squarely on Taylor- who looked to be revelling in the honour. Vocally it wasn't anything to get excited about, but I'm sure that won't come as shock to anyone.

[Full Set] Taylor Swift @ Radio 1's Big Weekend 2015

Initially I thought to myself: Taylor Swift at a festival!? How is she not going to get booed (and quite possibly bottled) off the stage? But then I remembered, this is a festival being put on by Radio 1....say no more, right?

[Discuss] Taylor Swift Shows Us A Strong Woman Is a Sexual Woman with "Bad Blood" Video! #Girlpower

Taylor Swift's video for Bad Blood was causing waves before it was even released. And it's no wonder they were hyping it so early; having seen it now, it looks like a small fortune was spent on it.

[Watch] Madonna Belts Out "Ghosttown" With T-Swift @ 2015 iHeart Awards

Madonna left the cape at home for her performance at the iHeart Music Awards yesterday. Instead she chose to accessorise with perhaps the biggest pop star in the world: Taylor Swift. (If you don't believe that she was just a prop, peep the extra guitarist on stage, despite there only being one playing on the track.) Whatever the case, it was definitely a less painful way of generating publicity.

[Watch] All 2015 Brit Award Performances

Rather than review (and watch) each 2015 Brit Award performance, I'm going to post them all here for your immediate consumption. I did consider waiting till I had the time to watch them, but I think by the time I do that, the effort wouldn't have been worth the delay!

And since the organisers have done the greatest thing ever by uploading each performance to their YouTube page, I'm embedding ALL of them- not just those by our Divas. Seriously, you don't understand how much easier it makes a blogger's life when you don't have to search for bootleg uploads to embed.

Divas Rule YouTube's Most Peeped Music Videos of 2014

The top ten most viewed YouTube music videos of 2014 has been released by the internet giant. On the list there are a few surprises -namely Enrique Iglesias and Sia- but it'll come as no real shock that all the visuals were for pretty big chart hits.

The real good news though, 8 out of the 10 entries are female singers! Divas getting money!

[Watch] Divas Rock the 2014 AMAs

The 2014 American Music Awards happened yesterday at the Nokia Theater in LA. Amidst the boring award giving, there was a peppering of Divas who took to the stage to entertain and amuse.

The standout of which had to be Jessie J, who absolutely smashed it with Bang Bang. Even though she was sharing a stage with two- arguably more famous- Divas, Jessie remained unbothered, out shining both with nothing but voice and charisma. This woman was born to be on stage.

(Also, Taylor Swift takes a little bit more of my heart every time I see her getting her life at an award show. I'm worried soon they'll be no more to take!)

Taylor Swift Clarifies Why She Ain't Got No Time 4 Spotify

Taylor Swift pulled her entire catalouge off of Spotify earlier in the week, did any of you see that? I wouldn't have thought anything of it, but Spotify's thirsty response- and appended playlist entitled "Poetry for Taylor Swift"- suddenly made the whole thing a little more interesting to me. Regardez:

[Mash-Up] Taylor Swift & Beyonce - "XO" / "Out Of the Woods"

So it looks like Taylor is going to break the one million mark with the first week sales of latest album 1989. If she does, it will make it the third time in a row the Diva has accomplished this mammoth feat, bucking the trend -and perhaps breaking the curse- of no album, released this year, hitting platinum status in the States.

Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" Gets the Kelly Clarkson Treatment

Kelly Clarkson is so adorable- I could listen to her ramble all day!

[Watch] Taylor Swift "Shakes It Off" @ X-Factor UK

Taylor Swift's latest hit, Shake It Off, still hasn't made any impression on me- which is strange.

Usually this Diva's music grows on me over time, but this, her most unabashedly pop-infused, is still doing nada for me. I wonder if that means I won't be enjoying her next album. Well, that's something to worry about later, for now, let's concern ourselves with the present: her performance on the X-Factor UK.

Are Taylor Swift and Katy Perry "Straight-up Enemies"?

Looks like Taylor Swift has turned the sharp end of her pen towards her own kind. No one is safe anymore!!! Having written some not so nice songs about various boyfriends, the Diva has now taken aim (with track Bad Blood) at a fellow, female pop star! SAY WHAT!

[Review/ Watch] Taylor Swift Performs "Shake It Off" @ 2014 VMAs

Taylor Swift kept it cute for the first rendition of Shake It Off, which took place at the 2014 VMAs.

For the most part her voice sounded good, though she did falter on the top note and have some powerful backing vocals going on. Still, her time on stage contained humor (let's hope the Barbz take it in good jest and don't resort to dragging her), eye-catching choreography (from the male dancers) and managed to use the unusual stage in a great way.

[Review] Taylor Swift - "Shake It Off"

What is this noise, Taylor!? Seriously, this must be a joke, or a parody of something I'm not cool enough to have seen yet. No? This is a legitimate release, you say? Oh... Ok. Let's me proceed with the review then...*sigh*

[Watch] Taylor Swift And Her Piano Perform "All Too Well" @ 2014 Grammy Awards

taylor swift grammys 2014

I really like Taylor Swift. I'm not sure why. I mean, I know why I like her music, but I'm not sure why I like her as a person. I'm not saying I should dislike her or anything, more so that I should be a little more nonchalant of her as an individual. With all this confusion going on in my mind, I'm not sure how to feel about her rendition of All Too Well at the 2014 Grammy Awards.

My immediate reaction was that I liked it! Simple and stunning was what I felt. However, after reading comments on YouTube calling it "mediocre" and "average," and kind of seeing what they mean when watching it a second time, I IZ CONFUZED.

Am I being blinded by my odd affections for Taylor, or was this actually a good performance? I'm sure you guys will give me a gentle nudge in the right direction with your critiques in the comments.

[Countdown] P!nk Has Highest Grossing Tour of Any Female In 2013

Taken from Billboard's run down of the 25 highest grossing tours of 2013, P!nk coming on top certainly wasn't what I was expecting after listening to the more rabid stanbases talking trash all year about their fav's ticket sales. The diva also had the highest position of any female (number 7) on Billboard's tally of the top 10 Year-End most popular songs across all genres with Just Give Me A Reason. Just two of the reasons, I suspect, the pop-rocker was deservedly named Billboard's Woman of the Year! Finally, girl be getting some recognition!

But it was a good year for Divas in general, with Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Beyonce all making the top ten highest grossing tours of the year- though it seemed some had to work harder, over more dates, to gross the amount they did. Interestingly, out of all the Divas, Taylor Swift was the only one who sold out all her dates, with Beyonce, conversely, failing to sell out 19 of the 59 shows.

Still, Divas be getting money!

[Watch] Taylor Swift Duets With Alison Krauss @ 2013 Country Music Association Awards

taylor swift alison krauss

Taylor Swift performed a beautiful and stripped back version of Red at the Country Music Awards 2013.What made the performance extra special- for her I'm sure more than anyone else- was who she was joined on stage by: Alison Krauss and Vince Gill.

T-Swift may get slated by many for her voice (which was near enough perfect here) and the content of her lyrics, but she shouldn't care when her own idols are willing to get up on stage and essentially play her backing group. It speaks volumes to the impact she's had on the scene in such a short time, and at such a young age.

The whole performance was gorgeous!

[Parody] Bart Baker Takes Aim At Taylor Swift And Miley Cyrus

I am a sucker for a parody, so it's insane- or rather you guys are lucky-that I haven't flooded the site with reams of them by now! Heaven knows there are gajillion of them out there on the interwebs poking fun at our lovely Divas. Well today this changes, and I send out fair warning to all to expect this to become a regular feature on the blog, hosted under the "parody" label.
