TAYLOR SWIFT PERFORMS NEW HOLIDAY SINGLE ‘CHRISTMAS TREE FARM’ LIVE FOR THE FIRST TIME – AND MORE SWIFT NEWS – (12/11/2019)
Please note the following story contains language that could be considered offensive.
Taylor Swift gave her new holiday song, “Christmas Tree Farm,” its live concert debut Sunday in London, at Capital FM’s Jingle Bell Ball.
Taylor donned a Santa hat and performed in a white romper and boots, as digital snowflakes drifted down the video screens behind her. The video, which features footage of her as a child, also played behind her.
Fans report that Swift’s set list also included “Blank Space,” “ME!” and “London Boy,” as well as “Lover,” “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” “22,” “You Need to Calm Down” and “Shake It Off.”
Meanwhile, Madame Tussauds London has revealed it is putting the first-ever permanent wax figure of Taylor on display starting December 13th, which also happens to be her 30th birthday.
And, Taylor is teasing the imminent release of her upcoming movie Cats by posting a photo of her first day on set. The singer, who plays a cat named Bombalurina, is pictured on a giant-sized set designed to make people seem tiny by comparison, standing by a huge door and stretching up to reach a doorknob. Cats is in theaters December 20th. Taylor received a Golden Globe nomination for “Beautiful Ghosts,” the original song she co-wrote for the movie with Cats creator Andrew Lloyd Webber.
In other news, Swift’s camp ran an ad Tuesday in a Grammy-themed edition of the Los Angeles Times’ The Envelope section. While Swift has three Grammy nominations this year, Republic Records’ ad focuses entirely on Swift’s song of the year nomination: “Vote for ‘Lover,’” the ad implores, “…Because this decade’s most prolific songwriter has never won Grammy’s song of the year.” This is Taylor’s fourth nomination in that category. The 62nd annual Grammy Awards will be presented at Staples Center in Los Angeles on January 26th.
Finally, after YouTube host and podcaster Stefan Molyneux spoke openly about Swift’s fertility now that she is turning 30 years old, Chrissy Teigen fired back hard.
Molyneux wrote, “I can’t believe Taylor Swift is about to turn 30 – she still looks so young! It’s strange to think that 90% of her eggs are already gone – 97% by the time she turns 40 – so I hope she thinks about having kids before it’s too late! She’d be a fun mom. :)”
Teigen, who has previously shared her own fertility struggles, wasted little time firing back at Molyneux. As she bluntly put it, “Uhhhh you’re a f*ckin weird ass.”

JORDYN WOODS TAKES LIE DETECTOR TEST ON ‘RED TABLE TALK’ – (12/11/2019)
When the Tristan Thompson and Jordyn Woods scandal broke out back in February, Woods decided to take a lie detector test on Red Table Talk to prove she was telling the truth about her side of the story. Yesterday (December 10th), during a special “Ask Us Anything” episode of the show, Jada Pinkett-Smith revealed that Woods requested to take the test. She said, “Jordyn did take a lie detector test … it was Jordyn’s request. It was her request to be here, and it was her request to take the lie detector test. We had a forensic polygraphist with more than 25 years of experience in criminal and civil investigations.”
Jordyn revealed what she hoped to gain from taking the test, saying, [“I just want everyone to know that I’m telling the truth. That’s the most important part of the story to me, is the truth.”]
Jordyn took a two hour test and certified polygraphist Shon Thurman said that she passed with “flying colors.” During the test, he asked [“Are you now in the state of California? Jordyn: “Yes” Shon: “Are you currently sitting down?” Jordyn: “Yes.” Shon: “Did you have sex with Tristan Thompson?” Jordyn: “No.”]
Meanwhile, Jada’s mom Adrienne seemingly threw a little shade at The Kardashians for the way they handled the scandal. She said, [“There were a lot of untruths that were put out there and one of them was about the fact that there wasn’t an apology from Jordyn. . . From the text messages that I saw, that wasn’t necessarily the case. So . . . don’t be editing this out of the show. Cuz that’s important.” Jada: “I taught me a lot. . .. There’s always more to the story so you gotta be careful how you judge . . . Adrienne: “So while you’re pointing the finger, there’s always three pointing back at you.” Jada: “Ohh. Ok.”]

Post Malone has officially announced – and sold out – his fourth Crocs collection.
The new collection features the Post Malone X Crocs Duet Max Clog, which features a blue and black camo pattern, a chunky sole and pivoting back straps with adjustable hook and loop closures. Posty worked on the design, including the detailing on the sole and the straps.
“This latest drop with Crocs is our best yet. I wanted to make a more tactical and chunky shoe, and they gave me all the tools to do just that,” he said in a statement. “I think they came out really neat, and I hope everyone loves them as much as I do.”
Posty introduced the footwear last week by arranging a surprise delivery of shoes to the employees and customers at Chicken Express in Southlake, Texas, which provided Posty with his only job prior to becoming a professional musician.
The Duet Max Clog costs $60 and WAS available online and at select retail locations. The Crocs sold out in under two hours.
