Listen, I get it. I love Taylor Swift. Once, after Red came out, I asked my friends if they wanted to have an informal discussion group about it. Kind of like a book club, but about an album. No one wanted to be in it, but maybe I should've asked Katy Perry because she still has things to say about Tay.
In 2006, a study published by the University of Oklahoma found that people really bond by sharing negative attitudes about others. The study found, "We propose that sharing a negative—as compared to a positive—attitude about a third party is particularly effective in promoting closeness between people. Findings from two survey studies and an experiment support this idea. In Studies 1 and 2, participants' open-ended responses revealed a tendency to recall sharing with their closest friends more negative than positive attitudes about other people. Study 3 established that discovering a shared negative attitude about a target person predicted liking for a stranger more strongly than discovering a shared positive attitude (but only when attitudes were weak). Presumably, sharing negative attitudes is alluring because it establishes in-group/out-group boundaries, boosts self-esteem, and conveys highly diagnostic information about attitude holders. Despite the apparent ubiquity of this effect, participants seemed unaware of it. Instead, they asserted that sharing positive attitudes about others would be particularly effective in promoting closeness."
It should also be noted that the study was done by researchers from OU and their most-hated rival, the University of Texas.

Miranda Lambert knows how to put her man Anderson East on the spot. She also knows how to properly wish him a happy birthday when she's on stage in front of 20,000 people and he's also on stage-- sing to him.
The two were performing in New York, so Miranda thought that since this particular show was Anderson's last show in his 20s, he should go out with bang. Clad in fishnet hose and an Anderson East t-shirt, Miranda sang a heartfelt version of the world's most famous song to her man. He seemed to enjoy it. Mostly.
Sometimes, when celebrities respond to tabloid accusations it's because they are trying to hide something. Sometimes, the accusations are so outrageous they do it for a laugh. Sometimes, they do it because they have real answers to the questions.
