Because it just kind of hit me out of nowhere. I definitely felt ... I felt things. I don’t know if it was sadness or anger. I think it was just confusion. I just wanted answers. Like, ‘What happened?’ We did everything right, I think. I’m not a cocky person. I’m not arrogant. People told me I was going to get nominated. The world told me. Like, ‘This is it; this is your year.’ We were all very confused."
Taylor Swift tells Rolling Stone magazinethat she wanted to get away from people criticizing her life. "Since I was 15 years old, if people criticized me for something, I changed it. So you realize you might be this amalgamation of criticisms that were hurled at you, and not an actual person who’s made any of these choices themselves. And so I decided I needed to live a quiet life, because a quiet personal life invites no discussion, dissection, and debate. I didn’t realize I was inviting people to feel they had the right to sort of play my life like a video game."
Justin Bieber tells Billboard magazine that he was extremely nervous when he proposed to Hailey Baldwin. "I was extremely nervous. I was more nervous about, am I able to make this commitment as a man and be able to honor you know, what I say, because that’s a serious commitment when you say you’re gonna love someone for better or for worse and like, be faithful. That’s huge. Am I able to do that? I finally was like, ‘You know what? I’m gonna make the decision and follow through with it. Be a husband, and you know, this is what I’ve always wanted. I’m gonna just choose this woman and just do it.'”

Gabby Barrett tells AmericanSongwriter.com that she originally wanted to be a R&B singer. “I originally gravitated towards R&B because I really respected, from a young age, women that could sing their tails off live. You would hear a record but then you’d hear Whitney Houston blow it out of the water — better than the record — live. I really studied that. I would be with a group of women every week singing songs and showing me different ways and capabilities to sing. They brought that out of me and that’s still something I carry with me today.”

A source tells the magazine, “So many people close to Kate and Leo – including his mom – wish they’d give in to their obvious chemistry and give the romance a red hot go.

When Leo has a relationship drama, good or bad, he’s usually straight on the phone with Kate. He values her opinion second only to his mom Irene’s, which has caused friction.''

George Clooney tells W magazine that he has been busy with chores during the pandemic. "I'll tell you what I've taken on as a hobby: two or three loads of laundry a day. Dishes all day long, because these kids are slobs. You have to wash your children every once in a while. I cut my son's hair, and I cut my own hair, too, but I haven't cut my daughter's hair. I'd get in trouble if I did. My daughter looks gorgeous—her hair is very long. If I screw up my son's hair, he'll grow out of it. But my wife would kill me if I touched my daughter's hair."
