Grammys

Harry Styles Praises Taylor Swift’s Brit Awards Performance

Taylor Swift may have bashed Harry Styles on stage at the Grammys earlier this month, but the One Direction singer is keeping all comments about his ex positive and kind. After Swift, wearing a sexy black bustier outfit, performed “I Knew You Were Trouble” at the Brit Awards on Wednesday, Styles praised the performance.

“Great!” Styles told Us Weekly magazine when he was asked to give his opinion of Swift’s talent.

“She always puts on a good show,” he added.

Swift, 23, seemed to slam Styles while performing “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” at the Grammys. She used a mock British accent to deliver the spoke line, “So he calls me up and he’s like, ‘I still love you.’”

Swift then added, “…I’m like, ‘I’m sorry, I’m busy opening up the Grammys.”

Styles and Swift dated for about 2 months before their split early last month. Some sources have claimed Swift dumped Styles, 19, because he cheated, while sources said it was Styles who gave Swift the boot because he found her “sexually uninterested.” “Harry found Taylor a little sexually uninterested. While it was clear she obviously had a thing for Harry, Taylor didn’t want to put out as often as he would’ve liked,” a source told Radar. “They were sexually incompatible.”

Madonna Hits Back at ‘Too Fat’ Slam Aimed at Adele

Madonna sprang to the defense of British singer Adele after she was labeled as “too fat” by Karl Lagerfeld.

The queen of pop told The Sun in an interview Monday that the fashion icon’s comments were “horrible” and “ridiculous”.

The eccentric Chanel designer claimed last month that Adele was “a little too fat” when he guest-edited a French magazine.

But Madonna, 53, stuck up for the Grammy-winner, hitting back, “That’s horrible. That’s ridiculous, that’s just the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard.

“I don’t like it when anybody says anything bad about anyone — I don’t like it. Adele’s a great talent and how much she weighs has nothing to do with it.”

Madonna, who won seven Grammys and two Brit awards, explained how she sustained a career in music spanning more than a quarter of a century — and said it is decent advice for Adele, 23, to stay on the right track.

She said, “The thing for Adele to remember is at the end of the day, whether you rise or fall, it has so much to do with how you sustain yourself and keep your integrity and your inner strength.

“It is all about who you surround yourself with — friends and people who really do care about you, and care about your well-being beyond being a superstar. That’s the most important thing.”

The Material Girl also spoke about the deaths of two of the brightest female solo stars in the last six months.

Amy Winehouse died last July aged just 27 after suffering a public battle with drugs and alcohol.

Then last month Whitney Houston was found dead in her hotel bath in the Beverly Hilton in LA. She was 48.

Madonna said, “I, probably like everybody else, was hit by this shocking sense of disbelief — especially with Whitney Houston.

“It had not been a secret, the struggles Amy had been through — both brilliant, brilliant artists and obviously both huge losses.

“But when these things happen, I’m always shocked by the first thing you say — ‘It’s such a loss’ — which doesn’t quite cover it.
“We’ve lost so many great artists that way when you think about it. So history just kind of repeats itself over and over.”
