Taylor Swift tells Rolling Stone magazine that you shouldn't be ashamed to say what's on your mind. “It's human nature to not say everything that's on your mind at the time you think it. Because we fear saying something that people will laugh at, people will think is dumb. We're afraid of being embarrassed. I say break through that. Never be afraid to voice your opinion on whatever you want.”


Knox tells Billboard magazine that he taught himself how to play the guitar."When I started at Ohio university, I decided I wanted to learn how to play the guitar. So I got myself a guitar and sat down with a load of YouTube 'How-to' videos. With their help, I learned how to play the guitar in a couple of months. It was meant to be."


Ariana Grande tells Allure magazine that she's no longer hiding from her success. “I think I was hiding from my success or from what comes with it. And it was really impacting my ability to be able to love what I did for a long time. it was really making me resentful, for a little bit of time. I don’t feel that way anymore. And I feel like I’m able to let go of that and enjoy it, and I feel really proud and grateful for that. It feels very different.”



Lizzo tells Page Six that she is not quitting the music industry, but she is quitting giving negative energy attention. "What I’m not going to quit is the joy of my life, which is making music and connecting to people. And I know I’m not alone. In no way, shape, or form am I the only person experiencing that negative voice that’s louder than the positive. If I can just give one person the inspiration or motivation to stand up for themselves and say they quit letting negative people, negative comments win, then I’ve done even more than I could’ve hoped for. I’m going to keep moving forward and keep being me.”

Angie posted; “To the man who took Ollie away from us: your actions are despicable and inexcusable. You’ve not only robbed us of a beloved member of our family but you’ve also traumatized us beyond measure. The fact that someone could commit such a heartless act is beyond comprehension to me and I’m devastated that I didn’t get to say goodbye to him.”


The New York Post says Joel McHale has confirmed that Chevy Chase won't be in the "Community" movie because of his unceremonious departure. Joel says,  “I don’t think he’s allowed to.

Page Six says Sarah Jessica Parker allows her daughters to eat as much sugar as they want. She says, “When I had girls, I didn’t want them to have a relationship with food that was antagonistic and to see it as an enemy. My own childhood home did not allow sugar … or chocolate or cookies.  In our house, we have cookies, we have cake, we have everything. And as a result, you have a better relationship. My daughters will have the figures they have, and hopefully they’ll be healthy. They’re athletes and they enjoy food and have different palates. I hope that they can maintain their affection for the experience and their delight in taste.”

Mike Tyson tells Fox News that he is scared about his upcoming fight with Jake Paul. “Right now, I’m scared to death. I always believed that adversity and nervousness pretty much catapulted me into success. If I didn’t have these feelings, I wouldn’t go into this fight. I have to have these feelings to fight. Without them, I would never go in the ring. As the fight gets closer, the less nervous I become, because it’s reality. And in reality, I’m invincible.”


The News International says Taylor Swift never has Blake Lively and Selena Gomez in the same room due to reported "bad blood" between them. A source says, “This is the reason neither of them is ever with Taylor at the same time and are constantly avoiding run-ins with each other. For a good hangout and good party, you know who to invite and who not to invite. Taylor knows not to mix Blake and Selena in the same room and that it must be two separate nights. Blake enjoys the perks of being a celebrity. She loves to have fun. If there is something fun going down, Taylor wants to be a part of it and it is contagious. This is something that everyone, including Taylor, loves about Blake. She knows that, no matter what, she is going to have a good time and lots of laughs when she is out with Blake. Selena just plays a different role in Taylor's life. It is as simple as that.”

Dear Fonseca,

I have a pet husky who I dearly love. The other night, I introduced him to my new boyfriend for the first time. My husky stared at my new boyfriend as if he had done something wrong. It was like he was looking into his soul.  When my new boyfriend tried to pet my husky, he backed away and gave him the side eye. I told my friend what my husky did. She senses my husky knows something about my boyfriend that I don't. Another friend laughed when I told her about my husky and said the guilty look and side eye is all in my head. Now, I'm starting to question whether or not I should date this guy. Do you think my husky is on to something? Do animals know when something's not right? Are animals a good judge of character? Is this all true or is my head playing games with me?
