Taylor Swift tells Time magazine that watching a song go from an idea to a hit is a magical feeling.

There is no feeling in the world to describe it. It's like watching your children become huge successes."

Ariana Grande tells Elle magazine that she used to hide behind her hair and makeup. “I, over the years, used makeup as a disguise, or as something to hide behind. More and more and more hair, the thicker the eyeliner, whatever, and that can be so beautiful at times, and I still do have love for it and appreciation for it, but I think as I get older, I don’t love that being the intention behind it anymore. I think of it as self expression now and accentuating what is here.”

Sabrina Carpenter tells Interview magazine that something she heard a man say about life has really stuck with her. “This guy was like, “Life is so long.

Closer Weekly says Keanu Reeves is refusing to add extra security despite several stalker incidents.  A source says, "Keanu's reluctance to prioritize his safety is worrisome, given the recent security incidents involving his Los Angeles home. You have to really look at his behavior: the constant refusal of security or even a chauffeur, the fact that he still mostly lives alone when he’s in Los Angeles or on the road, and of course all the stunts and training he’s subjected himself to in the last 20 years especially – it all adds up to a lifestyle with too many close calls and a regular proximity to actual danger.’’

Radar Online says John Travolta has become a recluse after the tragic death of his wife, Kelly Preston. A source says, "John doesn't go out and would rather be home by himself. In L.A., he sits by the pool watching the sunrise and sunset while turning down invitations to dinner parties and other gatherings. It's the same thing when he's at his home in Florida. He spends a lot of time alone with his memories. It seems like his whole spirit has been killed by a broken heart."

Dear Fonseca,

My family is flying out later today for a Memorial Day weekend vacation. My neighbor works for an airline and thinks my husband and I are the worst because we booked first class seats for ourselves, but not our children. The kids are 6, 7, 9 and 11. We put them in coach. My neighbor says that's wrong because no one is going to watch them. My husband and I deserve a vacation too. The flight attendants will keep an eye on them. My neighbor says we're bad parents because we did that. I disagree. Nothing's going to happen to them and they wouldn't appreciate the first class treatment we are going to get in first class. Are my husband and I bad parents for doing this?
