Today in celebrity gossip: 39-year-old men are not eligible to become Taylor Swift's biggest fan; Roseanne Barr and Tom Arnold celebrate the '90s by bickering in public; Jennifer Lawrence remains the best.
If you are a 39-year-old man with questionable taste in music, please be advised that you are NOT eligible to become Taylor Swift's biggest fan. That's what Boston resident Charles (just one name, like Sting) learned after winning Kiss 108 FM's Taylor Swift's Biggest Fan Contest only to be informed that his victory "compromised" the "integrity" of the contest. It's not clear if Charles' online campaign to meet the 23-year-old publicity prodigy violated contest rules when he openly claimed he intended to "make a complete ass of himself by blatantly just sniffing her hair with cameras rolling," but it is clear that Taylor Swift would prefer not to have backstage meetups with 39-year-old men who threaten to behave like creeps around her. 35-year-old men maybe, but certainly not 39-year-old men. Fortunately for those currently tallying Taylor Swift's karma points, last Friday the singer visited an Italian restaurant in Philly, hooked the chef up with free concert tickets for his autistic son, and then left a $500 tip. Taylor Swift and her publicists ask that you please remember only the second part of this story, thanks! [E! Online]
Gen-X nostalgists rejoice! The most fearsome '90s rivalry since Chun-Li and M. Bison recently flared up again in a big way: Earlier this week none other than old flames Roseanne Barr and Tom Arnold got into a public bickering match on Twitter! The spat began when Arnold tweeted a joke about donating his old wedding videos to Goodwill, to which Barr demanded to know whether the the videos in question were from their wedding. After a lengthy, seemingly heated exchange of @-replies in which the former She-Devil star accused the former True Lies sidekick of having given away some of her rightful possessions over the years, he responded by accusing her of no longer being funny. And because this was Twitter, various comedians weighed in as well. Eventually the flare-up dwindled to a flickering ember when Arnold finally admitted that the videos were from his other wedding(s) and promised to double-check next time. At that point conversation turned to Arnold's newborn son and Barr's curiosity about his astrological sign. Just another normal conversation between two original-recipe rascals. [E! Online]
