Taylor Swift may have been accused of being racist after her videos for “Shake it Off” and “Wildest Dreams,” but she’s going to prove that she is “down with the bros” on her new album. Pop Music Scandal has learned that Taylor Swift is recording an album with themes related to the Black Lives Matter movement.
Swift doesn’t plan to say “Black Lives Matter” directly, but the themes of the movement cover the album. We are told that the album is similar to Bruce Springsteen’s September 11, 2001-themed The Rising, which didn’t mention the disastrous day directly. Swift plans to recruit a bunch of rappers on the album, including Eminem, Vanilla Ice, Darrell McDaniels (Run DMC), Mike D (Beastie Boys), and even Macklemore. She is seeking help from Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar as well.
Swift may turn her new album project into a visual album like Beyonce did with Lemonade. Only two song titles have been revealed so far. “Colored People of Color” has something to do with people who use the term “Colored People” to describe people of color. The other song, “Ode To The Repressed” may be the first single. It has a sort of rock vibe to it. So far, there isn’t much of Swift’s country trademark on her new album.
Swift is trying to keep this album as private as possible. We are told that it will come as a surprise release. Swift wants to release the album this summer, but her record company Big Machine Records wants to release it closer to the holiday season to attract more sales. This album could either be a real smash or a real joke.
This is a story that sounds as fiction as can be, but isn’t. Several reliable sources have revealed that Jay-Z and Megyn Kelly from Fox News are “very close,” but have tried to keep it a secret.
Of course, Jay-Z stands for everything Fox News is against. But one can say that Megyn Kelly isn’t your typical Fox News personality. Is Megyn Kelly the “Becky” that Beyonce had been talking about on Lemonade?
Pop Music Scandal has been told that the two have been hooking up for years — since 2011. In fact, in 2012, both of them stayed for several weekends at the Extended Stay Suites in Burbank, CA — a hotel that isn’t trashy, but one that’s definitely not a spot for famous people. There is a Starbucks right across the street at the shopping center. When Megyn Kelly is in California (she takes several trips there), she is often seen there.
It’s hard to imagine Jay-Z and Megyn Kelly as a secret couple, but our sources point to this really being true. Can you imagine what their kids would look like?
Make no mistake about it; Lady Gaga is one of the most racist people to ever hit this earth. While attending the Convent of the Sacred Heart High School, she was expelled several times for making racial slurs at the school’s very few African-American students.
A couple years ago, she held a gay slave party where she dressed up men in blackface and held them in chains. She also called one of them the “N” world, as Pop Music Scandal recently reported.
Now, Pop Music Scandal has gotten a hold of a picture taken in August of 2013 at an “Art” party hosted by Marina Abramovic and attended by Lady Gaga, who can be seen smirking as an African-American man poses with an arrow and blood on his skin. The blood is (probably?) fake, but the sentiment of the picture is clear to see. Lady Gaga and her friends apparently think it’s funny to see an African American man lynched in the name of “Art.”
Lady Gaga’s actions are completely shameful. It doesn’t matter that she is trying to hide her racism by exploiting the death of Trayvon Martin and pretending to be a Black Lives Matter activist. Gaga’s actions are severely dangerous and a part of the reason why a group like Black Lives Matter is needed in the first place.
Gaga’s racist actions have now transferred to her fans.
We have received several letters asking why don’t we do an expose on Beyonce. “If you go after Lady Gaga and others, you HAVE TO GO AFTER BEYONCE!” Actually, we don’t. Let us explain.
Is Beyonce fake? Probably! Is Beyonce manipulative? Probably! Was Lemonade really from the heart? Probably not! Did she and Jay-Z get together and plan that Beyonce, as a publicity stunt, would write a song about him cheating on her? Probably! Once again, does this make her fake? Yes! Does this make her a “scam artist”? No.
Beyonce is doing what many people did before her. Michael Jackson always used “the children” for his publicity stunts. Mariah Carey even turned her divorce into a publicity stunt. For many other artists, it’s world hunger. They may not care about what they are singing about, but at least they are not PAYING PEOPLE TO PRETEND THEY CARE.
As far as we know, Beyonce — unlike Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber — has never given a cent to Billboard and other magazines to write positive things about her. She has NEVER TRIED to goad her fans into buying multiple copies of her song so it can do better on the charts. In 2011, Beyonce did tell Billboard that if she appeared, they would have to give her some type of award. Billboard ended up giving her the Millennium Award in 2011. That’s common for an awards show.
At times, Beyonce seems more like a PRODUCT than an ACTUAL STAR. However, at times, her TALENT equals the product she tries to emote. Lady Gaga and others should take notes from Beyonce. No matter how fake you are, people will respond if your MUSIC IS GOOD and if it is promoted properly. If a song is going to become a hit, it’s going to be a hit. If an album is going to be a hit, then it’s going to be a hit.
Beyonce broke the mold with her 2013 self-titled album. There weren’t MONTHS OF HYPE. Queen Bey didn’t need to RUN THOUGH THE STREETS NAKED in order to get attention. She just put out a good surprise album that would inspire others to do the same. I agree with Beyonce’s haters in that she could be very annoying. But she’s also very smart and — unlike others — ETHICAL.
