TAYLOR SWIFT: Donald Trump Calls Her a Ditz
President Donald Trump could not resist and responded to Taylor Swift’s first ever political endorsement of two Tennessee Democrats.
On Monday, Trump told reporters outside the White House, (quote) “Let’s say that I like Taylor’s music about 25 percent less now. Marsha Blackburn is a tremendous woman. I’m sure Taylor Swift doesn’t know anything about her.”
Terrible move to essentially call Taylor a ditz. Taylor stated on Instagram how she felt appalled by the voting record of Blackburn, who opposed “Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape.” (People)
Taylor faces another backlash. She’s been warned to avoid any political speeches at tonight’s American Music Awards. She’s performing and has been nominated four times and is almost guaranteed to win Tour of the Year. An insider said, (quote) “American Music Awards is a night to celebrate music and entertainment. But unlike the Grammy Awards, they do not like political messages.” (Radar Online)

BUSY PHILLIPS: Claims James Franco Assaulted Her on Freaks & Geeks Set
Busy Philipps claims James Franco assaulted her on the set of Freaks and Geeks.
In her new memoir This Will Only Hurt a Little, the actress says the Disaster Artist star was a "bully" and once threw her to the ground during a scene in the 1999 series.
She said he “grabbed both my arms and screamed in my face, ‘DON’T EVER TOUCH ME AGAIN!” Then, she claims, the actor pushed her.
In her book, she writes that “James was full of bad behavior, so why would this be treated any differently.” Busy says he received “barely a slap on the wrist” for the incident.
However, the actress has said she and James are "friends now and we really like each other now as adults, but as kids we did not get along.” (Page Six)
