What's Taylor Swift been
up to over Christmas?
More than half-a-million dollars

For the past week, Taylor Swift has been unwrapping presents. All of them government green, as in dollars. She sold nearly 300,000 of her Speak Now work over Christmas week, landing her up on tomorrow's Billboard Top 200 albums. That means she accrued another $600,000 or so - nearly 3/4 of a million - while you were eating that Christmas ham.

Is Vanessa Hudgens sending Zac Efron
secret messages via MySpace?

Vanessa Hudgens just uploaded this video on her MySpace page. Is it a secret appeal to Zac Efron? Not until after the New Year, Vanessa. Zac is avoiding expensive holiday spending.

Zac Efron - smartest man in the world?

Rumors are Zac and Vanessa broke up. Women, this is one of the oldest ploys. Breakup just before Christmas. Avoid buying her a yacht or Bentley.

Then, right after the New Year, go back on your knees and say, Baby, I miss you so much, I can't live without you. At that point, ladies, use a Beyonce saying, put a ring on it.

Miley Cyrus pregnant 4 days before turning 18?

Internet gossip - four days before she turns 18 - is that Miley Cyrus is pregnant. Since she is a Tween role model, let's hope the rumors are just that - unfounded gossip.

End of CMA (Country Music Awards)
Taylor Swift most 1st week CD sales in century
no awards; WT?

Like newspapers that publish a story about a single business as an article instead of paid advertising (my journalism professors taught - anything less than three sources on a business story is a free ad), the Country Music Awards lost all credibility not giving Taylor Swift ANY, let alone the lion's share, awards tonight.

This woman broke 50 Cent's 2005 out of the box record for CD sales last week with Speak Now. Was Kanye West the lone CMA judge?

Taylor Swift Speak Now holds on to
Billboard #1 slot for second week

Garnering only a third of a million sales (figure $1-2 in Ms. Swift's pocket for each CD sold) in the past week. Total sales exceed one and a quarter million. Should put more than $2-million into Ms. Swift's handbag when you figure song copyrights.

Taylor Swift smells
On eve of #1 CD in nation

The week Speak Now reaches the top of Billboard's Top 200, Reuters is reporting Taylor Swift and Elizabeth Arden have reached agreement for a new scent. Taylor's line of perfume will reach stores, reportedly, in 2011.

Listen Taylor, a greatest hits the same year. Sit out a year or two on CDs. Too much exposure has killed careers as badly as too little.

An anagram if Taylor Swift & Taylor Lautner
get back together
like Brangelina anagram

Have come up with an anagram, like Brangelina, for Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift if they get back together due to Back to December.

Take the first three letters of Taylor Swift's first name and the last three of Taylor Lautner's first name and you come up with Taylor. Catchy anagram, right?

Did Marketing Sociologist Tween Music
Cause Taylor Swift Taylor Lautner breakup?

Was it a Dec. 13, 2009 post by Tween Music that lead to Taylor Swift's breakup with Taylor Lauthner?

In the post, it was reported X17online claimed Taylor and Taylor spent the night together. Problem is, Taylor Lautner did not turn 18 until Feb. 11, 2010. As the Dec. 13, 2009 post pointed out, this would have made Swift guilty of statutory rape under California laws.

Look at the lyrics from
Back to December:
Turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you

Then the cold came, the dark days when fear crept into my mind

And how you held me in your arms that September night

You gave me all your love and all I gave you was goodbye

Is that new December song
The one about Taylor Lautner
by Taylor Swift ot Demi Lovato?

Aly Michalka breaks up 78violet over Hellcats
When does Ashley Tisdale get to sing?

Anyone who thinks 78violet has a future, forget 'bout it. If they were a functioning unit, AJ Michalka would have been in this video.

Question is, will Ashley Tisdale get a similar reprise on Hellcats or are the show's honchos focusing on Alyson Michalka?

Innocent Taylor Swift 2010 VMAs
Don't know how long before video banned
Is she singing in and out of key?

Big Bang Records or someone in Taylor Swift's business machine is doing outrageous public relations by removing all YouTube videos of her 2010 MTV Video Music Award performance. After watching one video available, I can see why.

Is she singing in and out of key? I'm tone deaf. Let me know. Comment.

Yawn. Already covered that it is all available on YouTube. CD release date is set for Oct. 19, 2010. Will it go #1? I bet not. As yesterday as Hilary Duff. At least it comes out a week before Taylor Swift's Speak Now, which will be #1 out of the box.

Amanda AJ Michalka breaks heartbreaker
Joe Jonas heart

After doing a post about Joe Jonas brain, one Tween Music fan informed us that it was AJ Michalka who broke up with Joe Jonas.

Jonas broke up with Taylor Swift via text message, and she sang about it. Lovato and Jonas had a press conference after he dumped Lovato.

Story is, Joe and AJ had one date. He kept calling. She accepted an invite a year ago to the Jonas concert in Los Angeles.

Yet the story on the street is it was AJ who delivered the "let's be friends" speech, or was it "it's me, not you" line, to Joe.
Reportedly L.A. hotty heartbreaker Joe Jonas had his heart broken.

Taylor Swift schedules new CD
Speak Now Oct. 25

Billboard reports:

Taylor Swift will release her third studio album, "Speak Now" -- the follow-up to 2008's "Fearless" -- on Oct. 25, the country star announced Tuesday (July 20). Swift shared the news with her fans on Ustream and said the album's first single, "Mine," will be released around mid-August.

"Ever since we put out 'Fearless' I've been writing this one," said Swift, who added that "Speak Now" will consist of about 14 songs. "Through the past two years, I've been through a lot of things that I have been dying to write about and talk about. There were a lot of things that I wanted to say in the moment but couldn't, and this album is my opportunity to do that.

Wearing a turquoise sundress and yellow headband with a glittery bow, Swift went into detail with her fans about the making of "Speak Now," which she wrote entirely on her own. "I didn't have any co-writers, and it didn't really happen on purpose," she explained. "I'd get my best ideas at 3 am in Arkansas when I didn't have any co-writers around, so I would just finish it." Swift said the same thing happened in New York, Boston and Nashville. "It just so happened that the songs that made the cut on the album were the ones I wrote myself, so, wish me luck!" she laughed.

The 21-year-old singer/songwriter co-produced "Speak Now" with longtime collaborator Nathan Chapman, who worked with her on "Fearless" and her 2006 self-titled debut.

As for "Mine," Swift said the song is about "my tendency to run from love...Every really direct example of love that I've had in front of me has ended in goodbye and has ended in breakups and things like that. So I think I've developed this pattern of sort of running away when it comes time to fall in love. This song is sort of about finding the exception to that."

Swfit also shared some other big news with her fans -- she recently moved into her first home. "I've been constantly talking about antique shopping," she said. "I'm having such a blast with it!"

Swift's "Fearless" album has sold 5.9 million copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan, and was the best-selling album of 2009. Combined with her "Taylor Swift" debut as well as holiday albums and other releases, Swift has sold 11.7 million albums overall.

Just discovered: how Hannah Montana Forever season ends

It was just discovered that during the final season titled Hannah Montana Forever, Miley and Lilly, like most teenagers, causes Bobby Ray (Billy Ray Cyrus) to sprout gray hairs by coming in at 2 in the morning. They make some lame excuse about being at the "recording studio." Well, here's how Hannah ends up six months after that night of coming in at 2 a.m. You believe that's how Hannah Montana ends, don't you? How about the true ending - she decides to keep doing Hannah and being Miley? Then she goes on to make the second Hannah Montana movie 18 - Legal and Dangerous.

Vampires Suck
Because it is

Official Vampires Suck Trailer

Newcomer Ke$ha topples Taylor Swift
Ranking twice as high in 2010 albums

It may seem far-fetched and incredible, but for the first half of 2010, Ke$ha has outsold Taylor Swift in albums.

Ke$ha stands at 813,000 units sold according to Billboard, while Swift has sold 587,000. Billboard ranks Ke$ha at #8 and Swift at #16.

We won't go into the fact that Lady Antebellum and Justin Bieber top the first half of the year charts. My mind is not ready to comprehend why or how?

Something new in music
Devo Something For Everybody

Truth. I've always disdained Devo. Liked Working in a Coalmine and Satisfaction, but considered them a joke band. I've been looking for THE NEXT BIG thing in music. Think I found it with this song. Pick up the tempo by about 20 more beats PM and it'd be GREAT. Maybe society has devolved enough we can all appreciate this band from the '70s.

Miley Cyrus follows in Hilary Duff footsteps
Can't Be Tamed falls from from #3 to #9

Yes, the show Hannah Montana had to have a blond to follow Lizzie McGuire, one of Disney's most popular television shows of all time. In 2003 the McGuire star, Hilary Duff, went platinum three times (nearly 4-million sold) with Metamorphosis. By 2007, Duff was down to gold, 500,000 units, with Dignity.

From 2007 on, everything Miley Cyrus touched turned to platinum, not gold. Number 1 albums almost consecutively. Then something happenes in late 2009. In 2007. you couldn't touch a sold out Miley Cyrus concert ticket for under $1,000. In 2009, she sold out few if any of her concerts. Her song with Timbaland did not reach the top 100. Her song with Bret Michaels did not chart. Now, Can't Be Tamed, one of at least two CDs she'll release this year, didn't hit #1. It is falling faster than a rock in water.

Don't be too dismayed, though. When she tours late this year, her total income for four years will exceed half-a-billion dollars
