This Taylor Swift baby conspiracy theory is the craziest thing I’ve heard all week, tbh
WHO THINKS OF THIS STUFF
by Amanda Ross
I love a good batshit insane celebrity conspiracy theory. Lady Gaga killing her friend to absorb her powers, The Weeknd selling his soul to the devil, Larry Stylinson and all its offshoots.
My favorite (though obviously fake one) is one that started circulating yesterday. After Taylor Swift dropped a teaser for her new promotional single "Gorgeous", fans scrambled to figure out the identity of a baby girl cooing "gor-geous" at the beginning of the track.
Those of us with more than two braincells to rub together had a few ideas. It was either a small child she knew (and she seems like the kind of person who knows a lot, especially considering she's a godmother), a vocal effect, or an audio recording of her as a child saying gorgeous.
Aaaand then there were the conspiracy theorists. They genuinely believe that in the three years since her last album, Taylor Swift had a baby.
taylor isn't pregnant, she had the child already! it's a child of taylor, so of course it can speak already. that's the voice in #Gorgeous

THERE'S A BABY SAYING GORGEOUS AT THE BEGINNING???? TAYLOR WAS PREGNANT CONFIRMED??!?!?! WIG

No, actually. On Tumblr especially, there's a prevailing theory that Taylor conceived and gave birth to a baby, and that's why she's been in hiding and looking a lil thicker than her usual swizzle stick-thin self:

Taylor herself stoked the mysterious fires by jumping into a Tumblr post that questioned the baby's identity. She shot back "300 people know", meaning the 300 people she's hosted at her homes for secret Reputation listening parties.

We can all agree that's insane but utterly enjoyable rumor to consume, but let's talk about who the baby actually is.
I have two ideas: Lily Aldridge's daughter, Dixie, or Blake Lively's daughter, James. My money's on the spawn of Serena Van der Woodsen because Taylor's been closer to Blake and her husband Ryan Reynolds than most of her other friends over the past few years.
Taylor visited them in the hospital after Blake gave birth, they've been on couples trips together, and Ryan even gave her his authentic fresh-from-the-set Deadpool costume to wear for Halloween:
Either way, it's not hers. Sorry, y'all. Maybe next year.
Please come drag BeautyBlender for their 50 shades of white foundation
Have you not seen what RiRi’s been doing?
by Ari Bines
You would think that after all these celebrity cosmetic brands dropped a wide range of foundation shades, that other brands would hop on the inclusion bandwagon, right? Nah, because the BeautyBlender makeup shades are launching and they're all, well…mostly white. BeautyBlender is a brand that's not giving into to the inclusion trend as the makeup…
Free My Girl: Stormy Daniels arrested for slapping a cop with her titties
My anti-police queen!
by Amanda Ross
Ok fine, she's already free! But the details are too good to resist, trust me. Stormy Daniels, porn star/political icon/one of the few women to have survived seeing Donald Trump's withered penis in real life, was arrested Wednesday night for letting Ohio strip club patrons touch her. Apparently, in Ohio, it’s illegal for anyone for…
Here’s how Instagram’s algorithm works, plus how to game it for the most likes
Don’t act like that’s not the whole point
by Stephanie Downs
First of all, let's all stop pretending like the whole point of Instagram is anything other than engagement. I want likes and followers, you want likes and followers. The end! The flat tummy tea rejects from Bachelor Nation can’t have all of the fun. One of the latest algorithm updates for Instagram may help you…
