taylor-swift-cma-awards-2016Taylor Swift was taking swings on the stand yesterday during her groping trial. TMZ reports she testified that Denver radio DJ David Mueller “grabbed my ass underneath my skirt” while posing for a photo with her. “He did not touch my rib. He did not touch my hand.

It was a very shocking thing that I have never dealth with before…He grabbed my ass underneath my skirt. It was underneath my skirt.”

Anna-Faris-headshot-Oscars-2012-278x300Even though Chris Pratt and Anna Faris recently announced their split, the two are still living together. “OK, so this is really hard because I’m close to them,” said “Million Dollar Matchmaker” star Patti Stanger to “Entertainment Tonight.” I’m upset about it. The day it happened I actually texted them. I don’t know what happened there. [Pratt] is still living in the house.” She’s still rooting for a reconciliation tough. “I want them to get back together. So, I’m not fixin’ them up p- I would just be the counselor between them and go, “What really is the issue here? Because she’s living in the house…you just don’t really say something when they’re [still] living in the house [together].” The two announced their legal separation Sunday and share 4-year-old son Jack together. Us Weekly reports his meteoric career caused “tension” because he “became this huge movie star and Anna wasn’t getting any big jobs. She was the more famous and sexy one at the start of their relationship and then things took a turn.”

During an interview with CBS This Morning, Kesha revealed that she nearly killed herself attempting to meet the demands of the image-centric music industry. “You nearly killed yourself,” she read aloud a letter to her 18-year-old self. She blamed her battle with eating disorders and “crippling anxiety.” She said she dropped out of high school to pursue her dreams of stardom – the good news, she says, was that she made it. “The bad news is you nearly killed yourself on the road to success, fueled by fear of failure, crippling anxiety and insecurity.” She also noted she meets fans that come across the same struggles and they say music helped save their lives. “You’re gonna learn that art can heal people.”

Have a relaxing weekend!
