You’ve probably been wondering how Courtney Love feels about today’s crop of music superstars. If not, she’s going to let people know what she thinks anyway. The outspoken rock vet recently sounded off on female pop acts like Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, and Miley Cyrus.
So, who gets Mama Courtney’s stamp of approval?
“I liked Miley, frankly. I’m gonna be honest, Katy Perry bores the [bleep] out of me. She’s a nice girl, she just really bores me. You know, that hillbilly Miley Cyrus is sort of punk in a weird sex way,” she revealed during a set at a party performance on Monday, according to the New York Post.
We have no idea if Miley’s a big Hole fan, but she did once call Kurt Cobain her dream man.
When New York Magazine asked Love about an alleged feud between Gwyneth Paltrow and Vanity Fair magazine, Courtney declared her allegiance to close pal, Gwynnie. She also brought up a certain “22 singer: “And it just shows you where Vanity Fair has fallen. They have Taylor f*cking Swift on the cover getting a puppy.”
She also weighed in on Lady Gaga:
“She’s cool – we talked for about fifteen, twenty minutes. She’s going through a lot of changes, and has been hanging out with Marina [Abramovic] and also my friend Klaus [Biesenbach], and sort of discovering that side of herself. I really like the natural thing [she’s doing lately] – I mean, I’m sure she’ll go back to Gothic stuff. But she heard that I was going to leave so she came to find me. It was cool – like the popular girl came to tell me not to leave lunch hour,” she explained.
Courtney’s shown love for Mother Monster before, by performing a gravely spin on “Bad Romance.”
Please return the favor and do “Doll Parts” sometime, Gaga?
Taylor Swift and love go hand-in-hand like peanut butter and jelly – you know, in a world where peanut butter would run off and write songs about how jelly broke her heart and ruined the perfect sandwich.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” crooner once again opened up about the L word, telling the music mag she’s “getting to a point where the only love worth being in is the love worth singing about.”
Really? Because the world totally hasn’t noticed.
“I think that for me, when you experience something that’s worth writing a song about, chances are it’s the same kind of intense feeling that someone else has felt, and it has led them to be sitting on a bedroom floor crying, or walking through a crowded room feeling alone or feeling misunderstood by the person who’s supposed to know them better than anybody else,” the 23-year-old continued.
“Those are things that make you feel really alone, and if someone’s singing a song about that feeling, then you feel bonded to that person, and I guess that’s the only way I can find an explanation why 55,000 people would want to come see me sing.”
“I’m still so in love with songwriting because it’s never the same,” she added.
We don’t know about you, but we’re really digging Taylor Swift‘s paddleboarding ensemble.
On Sunday, the “Everything Has Changed” singer was spotted in Westerly, R.I., where she spent the day out in the water with some pals, including tour mate Ed Sheeran. Swift, 23, looked all sorts of adorable in a striped bikini, sunglasses and of course her favorite shade of lipstick.
The night before, the pair played their second of two shows at the Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. Swift and her tour family have a few days off from tour life before hitting the road again next month for their Aug. 1 show in Des Moines, Iowa.
In other Swift news, the singer was recently nominated for two MTV Video Music Awards, including Video of the Year for “I Knew You Were Trouble.” The moon man show is scheduled to take place Aug. 25.

In recent celebrity news, notorious serial dater TAYLOR SWIFT recently opened up about her dating life (yet again) to Vibe magazine, saying:
“Part of me just wants to be alone.”
Taylor, who is currently in London for what is rumored to be an attempt to reunite with ex-boyfriend Harry Styles after their not-so-shocking split earlier this month, has just given another interview about her love life and how she sometimes she just wants to “be alone.”
Taylor tells Vibe:
“I’m a Sagittarius, which means, you know, I’m blindly optimistic, I love to travel, I’m always up for adventure but also always want something new. Sagittarians are really independent, and we like our space. We’re drawn to love but battle for that need for independence.”
“Independence is something I’ve always needed, from when I was young, but I love the idea of romance and falling in love. I’ve never really had a long relationship. So that’s something I think about for the future. It’s an interesting part of my personality: Part of me just wants to be alone.”
As to why she rarely has a relationship that lives through the first three months, Taylor explains:
“I just know that if you’re not careful with things they can go away. I’ve seen people with careers that were great until they started taking them for granted. And I’m scared of that.”
What can you say about Taylor‘s latest interview?

Well, they SHOULD meet her!
Especially if she’s going to be neighbors with him!
And apparently, Harry is just as committed to their relationship, because sources close to him are reporting that he’s planning to introduce his new lady love to his PARENTS…at a secret Christmas party, no less!
That’s right, insiders claim that he and bandmates Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik and Niall Horan are gathering their friends and family for a holiday soir e after their sold-out Madison Square Garden concert to thank them for their support!
And as they explain:
“He’s been very hush-hush about Taylor but this is the perfect chance to introduce her to them.”
We’d certainly say so!
It sounds as though everything is certainly moving along quite smoothly for these two!
Nothing better than bringing in the holiday season with puppy love!
We just hope Harry’s folks take to Taylor as well as the Kennedy family did!
Fingers crossed, you two!

Has Taylor Swift learned nothing from her past relationship mistakes?
“I don’t think there’s an option for me to fall in love slowly, or at medium speed. I either do or I don’t,” Swift, who is rumored to be dating One Direction ladies man Harry Styles, told Parade magazine.
“I don’t think it through, really, which is a good and a bad thing,” the 22-year-old added. “You don’t look before you leap, which is like, ‘Yay, this is awesome! Let’s not think twice!’ And then you’re like, ‘We used to be flying. Now we’re falling. What’s happening?’”
However, despite red hot romances with Joe Jonas, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer, Taylor Lautner and Conor Kennedy — and four albums worth of lovesick songs — Swift isn’t sure she’s ever actually been in love.
“I tend to think things are love and then look back and reevaluate,” she explained. “I know how many people I’ve said ‘I love you’ to. I could probably count it up, but I don’t feel like it.”
“Part of me feels like you can’t say you were truly in love if it didn’t last,” she added. “If I end up getting married and having kids, that’s when I’ll know it’s real – because it lasted.”

“During rehearsals, Harry from One Direction came and slapped me on the back, and said, ‘Hey Mario, how you doing?’ And I said, ‘What are you doing here?’ And he sort of points towards Taylor, and I said, ‘Oh! Good for you! And then I see the two walking off hand-in-hand,” X-Factor co-host Mario Lopez dished on his radio show last week.
While Lopez stayed away from the word “dating,” he did say that the pair are “officially hanging out.”
