Tina Fey and Amy Poehler didn't waste time responding to Taylor Swift's Vanity Fair comments slamming their Golden Globes hosting gig in mid-January. The consensus: Learn how to take a joke, Taylor. Swift, 23, whose litany of boyfriends and breakup songs have made her a tabloid favorite, made headlines Tuesday for agreeing with a Madeleine Albright quote she'd heard from Katie Couric. " 'There's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women,' " Swift repeated to Vanity Fair regarding the "30 Rock" and "Parks and Recreation" stars.  PHOTOS: Taylor Swift is never, ever getting back together with...

Taylor Swift may never, ever be getting back together with a certain beau, but she seems strongly positioned to getting back above the 1 million first-week sales mark with her new album. According to her label, Big Machine Records, "Red" bolted out of the starting gate with 262,000 copies sold the first day on iTunes alone. Big Machine noted that the record went to No. 1 on iTunes' all-genre Top Albums chart just 36 minutes after it was released at 12:01 a.m. Monday. The label also said  “Red” was responsible for more than 4½ million individual iTunes song downloads to date in the U.S. Swift's song “Everything Has Changed” also shot to No. 1 on iTunes' Top Songs chart, one of 13 tracks from the album to reach the chart's Top 20. Swift's fourth studio collection also tops Amazon.com's list of bestselling albums, having spent 61 days in the Top 100, based on pre-release orders.

It was impossible to ignore Shakira's Zuhair Murad teal blue silk jersey long-sleeve gown with embroidered detail and nude silk cutouts snaking down the sides.   Sheryl Crow wore a black sheer, diamond cutout gown by Christian Siriano . And Kimberly Perry chose a similar style with a geometric pattern by another maximalist designer,  Georges Hobeika.

In the first scene of Taylor Swift's latest video, “22” the hitmaking country-pop artist wears a shirt that reads, “Not a whole lot going on at the moment.” The cheeky statement could mean a number of things -- and because it's Swift, rest assured it does -- but let's pretend for a moment she's having a lighthearted moment of self-awareness and is poking fun at the media's recent attention to the love life she often decodes for us in...
