Taylor Swift has proven herself to be the biggest name in pop, and the most generous. Currently in the midst of a world tour for her 1989 album, Taylor is still finding time to have fun with her friends, her new boyfriend Calvin Harris, and helping fans in need. Here’s everything that’s going on with Taylor right now.

As you may already know, Taylor basically changed the music industry a few weeks ago when she took on Apple and called them out for not paying artists for their new streaming service, Apple Music. Taylor wrote them an open letter explaining how this was unfair to up and coming artists. Almost immediately after this letter was written, Apple announced they would begin paying artists for their music, even during the free trial. Go Taylor for looking out for fellow musicians.

Next, Taylor had what looks to be a pretty epic July Fourth weekend. She kept fans updated on instagram, posting pictures of her and her many friends having a pool party and doing some baking. She also uploaded an adorable picture of her and her boyfriend Calvin Harris hanging out by the pool. This picture got about 2 million likes on instagram, so it’s safe to say people are a fan of this new couple. Taylor also spent some time with her brother. Brit Ed Sheeran “crashed” her independence day party wearing a revolutionary war style redcoat, jokingly supporting his home country. Her party sure looked like a blast and we would’ve died to be invited.

Lastly, Taylor has done some really good things lately for her fans. One fan missed a concert because of a cancelled flight. Heartbroken, she tweeted about her travel nightmare and Taylor saw and offered her free tickets to her next concert! She also recently randomly gave a fan fashion advice about his upcoming prom. And more majorly, Taylor donated $50,000 to an 11 year-old girl who is battling leukemia. The fan wanted to attend Taylor’s tour, but was too sick to make it. Taylor gave her the money and a heartwarming note, sending her prayers and promising the concert when she gets better. The girl was so shocked and touched she was speechless.

What did you think of Taylor’s amazing July Fourth weekend? And how insanely generous is she?! Let us know in the comments or tweet us using #glamorouspaper!

Sunday Paper July 5, 2015

Here’s a few popular stories in pop-culture and entertainment news for this week’s Sunday Paper!

Happy Birthday, America! Whether you were out sitting poolside, barbecuing with your family or having a relaxing day in, there was something to celebrate about this great country we call home. Check out what celebs did for their festivities.

Kim Kardashian West posed in an American flag, roller derby-esq outfit for Instagram and the expecting mom will have you saying, “where?!”

She also featured a picture of her Hubby Kanye West as he shows off his pearly whites with an American Flag background.

Old time buds Taylor Swift was snapped with Ed Sheeran for Instagram and she captioned the picture, “When @edsheeran shows up for the 4th of July in a red coat because he just can’t let it go.” Ed was quick to clap back replying, “ @taylorswift13 I don’t even know what you’re celebrating I just turned up for the free booze,”

Sofia Vegara also snapped a picture of her beau Joe Manganiello while he grilled out shirtless underneath his apron and captioned the pic, “Serious 4th of July business. Happy Independence Day!!!!”

Hilary Clinton may be falling behind in the Presidential debate to competitor Bernie Sanders, but after the comment she made people are getting to see her softer side.

image

The popular page “Humans of New York” which features random New Yorkers and their stories posted a heart breaking photo of a young man that was afraid of his sexuality this past Friday. Tons of LGBT members and allies flocked to the post to show their support for the young man and Clinton chimed in. Her words were so uplifting it became the top comment on the post. I’m sure this little boy has to know he is loved if the woman that is running for presidency is supportive of him.

Her comment reads:

“Prediction from a grown-up: Your future is going to be amazing. You will surprise yourself with what you’re capable of and the incredible things you go on to do. Find the people who love and believe in you – there will be lots of them. –H”

The comment was submitted with an “H” to signify it was her words on the post and not those of her assistance. Way to go Hilary!

One video that has been sweeping the internet with over 56,000 YouTube hits is a video of a father and daughter doing a beatbox battle and the results are sick! The father challenges his daughter and starts off to be doing better than what most people can do, but his daughter definitely shows him up and finished with a sickening two minute beatbox finale. Check out the video link below:

A big story this week is the national debate about whether or not the confederate flag should be taken down in South Carolina. Many people feel very strongly about this issue, and actor John Daley decided to chime in on the subject, quipping that the confederate flag hasn’t been relevant since the Civil War. The backlash over the flag came after the horrific church shooting in Charleston, which was racially motivated. The decision about whether or not to take down the flag will be made soon.

Wednesday was Mindy Kaling’s birthday, and her Office co-star Rainn Wilson tweeted her a, um, heartfelt message. “IT IS YOUR BIRTHDAY.” is a reference to an episode of the beloved sitcom, where Jim and Dwight were in charge of Kelly Kapoor’s birthday party and failed miserably. This tweet was a great treat for any Office fan.

If you haven’t heard, Taylor Swift has been in the news all week; it all started when she would not put her latest album on Apple’s new streaming service, writing an open letter explaining the decision. Apple was offering a free three month trial for their service, and during that time period, no artist would be getting paid for their music. Taylor voiced that this was extremely unfair, and this was why she was not giving Apple her music. Less than 24 hours later, Apple apologized and changed their policy, now paying artists even during the free trial period. Calvin Harris tweeted about this victory, clearly happy that his girlfriend “changed the entire music industry.”

Taylor announced herself on Thursday that she was going to stream her music on Apple’s service now after this change. Looks like it’s a victory for everyone!

So what are your opinions on the confederate flag? And how about the crazy Apple Music/Taylor drama?! Let us know in the comments or tweet us using #glamorouspaper!

Let’s start off this week with some news about the Kardashian clan. Everyone is very excited that Kim Kardashian is expecting her second child with Kanye West, and a few days ago it seemed confirmed that she was having a boy. Not so fast. Kim took to twitter to let everyone know that she has not revealed the gender of her baby yet, so all the articles saying it’s a boy are just speculation. She’s not having twins either (though how great would that be). Guess we’ll just have to wait to hear the news from Kim herself.

Screen Shot 2015-06-11 at 6.54.05 PMThe Tonys were this past Sunday, and it was a great show. Our favorite politically incorrect  host Billy Eichner live tweeted about the event, and even threw in a reference to a recent scandal going on in Hollywood right now. Many people are upset that Emma Stone was cast as a half-Asian character in the movie Aloha, when the actress is not Asian at all. The rest of the cast of the movie is very white, which is surprising since they are all playing residents of Hawaii. Director Cameron Crowe has since apologized for casting a white actress.

THEY’RE BACK! Gillian Anderson (Scully) shared a picture from the set of the brand new X-Files reboot, and everyone is freaking out. The cast and crew are busy at work, putting together a handful of episodes that will premiere in early 2016. Mulder himself (David Duchovny) also took to twitter and shared a picture of his script for the first episode, though unfortunately there was no sneak peak about the plot. Stay tuned for more info on this exciting reboot.

Lorde is gracing the cover of Vogue (Australia) and decided to share some beautiful pictures from the photoshoot. This was one of them, where she looks absolutely stunning in a vintage dress and jewels. The pop sensation (who only turned 18 a few months ago!!!) is doing great recently– she’s often hanging with BFF Taylor Swift or her boyfriend of a few years, and it is rumored that she could be releasing her next album this year! If it’s anything like the last one, I’m sure it’ll be a big hit.

And finally, the Gilmore Girls reunion we’ve all been waiting for!! Lauren Graham (Lorelai Gilmore) shared an insanely cute selfie with her TV daughter Alexis Bledel (Rory) and the two look so happy to be reunited. A lot more happened at this event though; most of the cast and crew were there, including all of Rory’s boyfriends (that’s not awkward at all!) It was great seeing everyone back together, especially these two.

Do you think Kim and Kanye are having a boy or a girl? And are you excited for The X-Files reboot? Let us know in the comments or tweet us using #glamorouspaper!
