  • J-Lo Considering a Las Vegas Residency?

    Ethan Miller/Getty Images via ABCJennifer Lopez was partying in Las Vegas last week, but does she want to do it onstage, on a nightly basis?

    The Las Vegas Review Journal reports that on Friday, J-Lo and her manager Benny Medina were seen at Shania Twain's concert at Caesars Palace, and the Las Vegas Sun says that on Saturday the two were spotted hanging out with Bruno Mars at Bruno's after-party at the Marquee at the Cosmopolitan Hotel.

    The Review Journal says that Jennifer's presence may indicate she's being wooed to set up her own residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, since Celine Dion canceled her own shows at that venue for personal reasons and Shania Twain is wrapping up her stint there.

    Despite her American Idol stardom and success as a businesswoman and TV producer, J-Lo's most recent album and its singles have underperformed, the paper points out.  However, she still puts on a spectacular live show, and she just might welcome the chance to stay put with her kids and perform in one place, as Britney Spears has done.

  • Taylor Swift Reveals How Fame Has Changed Her Day-to-Day Life

    ABC/Richard Harbaugh(NEW YORK) -- Taylor Swift may sing about universal truths, but her life is decidedly different.

    Fame, she said, has allowed her to splurge on things like a private jet ("Isn't that crazy?" she said in Esquire) but it's also forced her to lose a bit of autonomy.

    "I fought the idea of having security for a very long time, because I really value normalcy. I really do. I like to be able to take a drive by myself. Haven't done that in six years," she told the magazine. "[Even in Tennessee, my bodyguards] have to be in a car behind me because just the sheer number of men we have in a file who have showed up at my house, showed up at my mom's house, threatened to either kill me, kidnap me, or marry me. This is the strange and sad part of my life that I try not to think about. I try to be lighthearted about it, because I don't ever want to be scared. I don't want to be walking down the street scared. And when I have security, I don't have to be scared."

    There have been a lot of changes in Swift's life recently. The singer, 24, recently moved to New York City and is planning to release her new album, 1989, later this month. And despite recently moving to a place that many stars call home, New York City, Swift said she won't leave her home if she's having a bad day, so that she doesn't accidentally snap at a fan.

    "It's a social situation every time I go out," she explained. "I just have to wake up in the morning and say, 'How am I feeling today? If someone asks for a picture, am I gonna feel imposed upon today because I'm dealing with my own stuff? Am I gonna take my own stuff out on some innocent 14-year-old today and be in a bad mood?' OK, maybe not … Maybe I won't leave the house."

    Her career also forced the singer to finish two years of high school in 12 months ("That was just the most practical way to do it," she said) and deal with online trolling in a way that would reduce most people to tears.

    "That's what I don't like about celebrity culture and the obsession with it, and the takedown culture that we seem to be in. You have celebrities who are pushed to the brink of a public meltdown, and so the public thinks that every person in the public eye has dirty secrets that they're keeping, or isn't what they seem, or is masking it and faking sincerity, faking authenticity, faking being surprised at award shows when you win a Grammy," she said. "I'm not gonna let them make me have a meltdown."

  • Taylor Swift Unveils Entire Track List for Long-Awaited ‘1989’ Album

    With five days left until the big reveal of her “straight-up pop” album 1989, Taylor Swift decided to pull the curtains back on the project’s entire track list on Wednesday.

    The 24-year-old, who began a 13-day countdown to Monday’s due date by releasing a lyric from each of the songs everyday, unveiled the track titles for 1989 on her Instagram account, which includes the songs “Style,” “How You Get the Girl,” and the drama-bound “Bad Blood,” that was teased in her Rolling Stone cover story.

    Taylor originally announced her all-pop album with the lead single “Shake It Off” and its accompanying music video in August. She later promoted the LP with the release of “Out of the Woods” — the track that best represents the album — and “Welcome to New York” this month.

    Fans can pre-order 1989 on iTunes here.
