  • Madonna is a full on Swiftie. In an interview with Network Nine’s Today show, Madge said, “It’s good to have princesses [of pop]. It means there’s lots of pretty dresses around. I like Taylor Swift. I think she writes some really catchy pop songs. I can’t get them out of my head.” Swift naturally blogged about it on her Tumblr and responded with a simple, “Thanks now I’m dead.”

  • Hot 97 fired Cipha Sounds less than 24-hours after he criticized management for the way they gave him the boot and replaced him with Nessa Nitty for his usual 3-7pm afternoon slot. Sounds responded to all of the media coverage about him getting fired with a lighthearted Instagram post. [NYD]//
  • After so much backlash from fans and the band, Tom DeLonge wrote a long open letter to his fans on Facebook detailing his side of the story. Basically there’s been a lot of miscommunication and dysfunction between management and each member of Blink-182 and he “never planned on quitting, [he] just [found] it hard as hell to commit.”
  • K. Michelle performs “Love Em All” on Big Morning Buzz Live.
  • Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden snuggled up at the LA Lakers game just three weeks after their wedding and put on a show for the famous kiss cam.
