Revealed: Why Taylor Swift Won't Show Her Belly Button

Remember that Saturday Night Live parody "Swiftamine," where the announcer cracked that Taylor Swift is "always wearing a 1950s bathing suit?"  Well, one design detail of those kind of suits is that they don't reveal your belly button.  In fact, Taylor is almost always photographed in high-waisted ensembles that completely cover her navel.  Why won't she show it off?   "I don’t like showing my belly button," explains Taylor in the new issue of Lucky magazine. "When you start showing your belly button then you’re really committing to the midriff thing. I only partially commit to the midriff thing -- you’re…

Harry Styles Denies Rumor He Gave Taylor Swift 1,989 Roses

Although he reportedly inspired a few songs on Taylor Swift's latest album, 1989, her ex-boyfriend Harry Styles didn't help her celebrate the album's success by sending her roses.  Lots of them. Australia's New Weekly magazine claimed the One Direction member sent Taylor 1,989 roses after her album did so well on the charts, but Harry says it must've been someone else. "I know about the rumor. I don't know anything about the roses," he said, laughing, on Friday's Ellen DeGeneres Show. "I think it might have been someone else and I may have falsely taken [credit]." Taylor and Harry split…

One Direction Takes "Cutest Selfie Ever" with Jimmy Kimmel

One Direction joined Jimmy Kimmel for what he billed the “cutest selfie ever” on his ABC late-night show Thursday night. It was certainly a colorful snapshot.
