In non-news, “Haylor,” known formerly as Taylor Swift and Harry Styles, rang in the New Year with a glorious kiss in New York’s Time Square on Monday. Then I’m pretty sure (though it’s unconfirmed) that she morphed into a winged unicorn and floated into the sky since she’s clearly not living a human life. At the very least, some movie studio has been pranking us all these years by filming her life for an upcoming chick flick about a “regular country girl” who moves to Hollywood, becomes an amazing role model and starts dating a curly-haired dreamboat.
Swift performed “I Knew You Were Trouble” and “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” at ”Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest.” Her kiss inspired supportive fans to get the hashtag #WeRespectHaylor trending on Twitter.
To be honest, I’m still not fully convinced the relationship is serious because I’m used to celeb couples (Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth and Jelena in the early days) shying away from the media instead of leading a parade down Central Park.
Meanwhile, the guys from One Direction took time from their busy schedules to wish Directioners a happy New Year, however, the comment ruling all others right now is wishful thinking: “They exchanged a look and suddenly one of them shied away and the other’s sullen face showed a hint of amusement. You know who I’m talking about! ”
The best part of any One Direction video is the subtle deconstruction of every word, look and expression the guys give from commenters — even if the video is only 11 seconds. In this case, ”they” means Harry and Louis… aren’t we over the whole Larry Stylinson thing people? They’ve both got special ladies of their own now.
What do you think of Haylor’s relationship? Do you think it’s real? Are you sick of hearing about it?

Looks like the British bad boys had some time off while on tour in Australia. Max George broke the news on Twitter, “So….. In 2 hours from now I’m gonna be swimming with sharks 4m’s long!! Never been so hyped!!!” Seems like after a whole lot of convincing, all the lads ended up joining in except Nathan Sykes. He tweeted, “To people saying that we should join max, I think you are slightly confused about our sanity …” I actually don’t blame him though. Don’t worry Nath, you and I can sit from the other side of the glass and just wave. Following the eventful experience, Max George seemed the most excited with countless tweets, “Best thing I’ve ever done… My love for sharks had just doubled!!!” “My new friend!!” and “Lifting a sand tiger shark with 2 fingers!!” Jay McGuiness tweeted the photo above saying, “Didn’t bite me cause he could tell I was a vegetarian. #SharkWhisperer”
Really Cody…really? It’s okay we don’t mind (even though you’re 15-years-old). It’s quite obvious you just want to show off your jacked bod and read all your Angel’s reactions. The Instagram he posted reminds me of his “Wish U Were Here” acoustic performance, that he first did for us a month back. Yes I know, we’re so lucky! Looks like the pic caught the eye of Kendall Jenner, who instantly tweeted him back:

Looks like Katy Perry moves fast.
While performing at the Naval Academy in Maryland, the pop singer asked one of the midshipmen to help her in reenacting the “iconic sailor pose” on stage by giving her a kiss.
As the young man revealed his age to Perry, she cheekily replied, “Is this legal? Well, I’m a little bit older than you but that’s all right I can be your Mrs. Robinson.”
And to loud cheers, the two performed a romantic smooch.
How nice of Katy to make this boy’s dream come true…and break a million other boys’ hearts…
What do you think? Do you think they reenacted the pose well?
16-year-old heartthrob Justin Bieber was snapped making out with a female fan in Toronto a few months ago and the pictures are finally out. Apparently a tween watched the Biebs make out with her BFF and managed to catch the moment on her camera!
“Justin and my friend Michelle kissed behind the Four Seasons Hotel downtown a few months ago while he was in town for a concert,” the amateur photog said. “I didn’t feel right about releasing it before, but now it’s fine cuz it’s been a while.”
Ouch! Getting the cold bite of rejection from Justin Bieber is sucky enough, but to watch him make out with your best friend?! Girl’s gonna need HELLA therapy!
According to MTV News, Bullock celebrated her MTV Generation Award with a kiss from Scarlett Johansson.
Accompanying Johansson and Bullock on stage was Betty White and Bradley Cooper. And of course, this kiss got Bullock a standing ovation from the rowdy crowd.
“Sandy, I know I’m not alone in saying I hope you know how loved you are,” Cooper said. “Both for your incredible talent and for being such a humble and effervescent woman.”
And Bullock deserved nothing less than to be honoured. Just this year, she has already received a Golden Globe as well as a pair of giant hits, including “The Proposal” and “Blind Side.”
“You are grace defined and I adore you madly,” White said, who got to know Bullock during the filming of “The Proposal.”
“Our sex scenes were cut from theatrical release,” White lamented. “But don’t worry, everyone can see them on the unrated DVD.”
Despite all of the love and chatter, Johansson preferred to just stay quiet. Maybe she was still holding a grudge over Bullock’s full-frontal scene in “The Proposal,” shared with Ryan Reynolds – Johansson’s husband.
And to top it all off, Bullock became the first-ever female recipient of the honour. She joins the likes of Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller and Mike Myers, just to name a few.
During her speech, Bullock said “no matter what you might have seen or heard or read lately, I love what I do. And I’m not going anywhere.”
After last week’s amazing DLC 3 pack of Gwar, Marilyn Manson, and The Misfits is there any better way to follow it up than offering a new game featuring Taylor Swift and Adam Levine? Heck no!
A man was arrested at Kiss’ TD Garden show in Boston on Oct. 5 for urinating on a concertgoer standing in front of him, according to RollingStone.com.
A woman was watching the rock band perform when she suddenly experienced a “warm feeling on the back of her leg.” The woman turned around to see where the warmth was coming from, only to find that the man behind her was urinating.
Security was called over and the man was escorted away and detained until police arrived on the scene.
Chris Morris of Boston was charged with open and gross lewdness and disorderly conduct. Morris was reportedly also highly intoxicated, slurring his speech while an alcoholic musk emanated from him.
KISS could be seeing a lot of Canada come September.
The rock icons announced a contest in April asking North Americans to decide its concert tour route this fall by voting online for which cities should be on the schedule.
So far, Winnipeg is topping the list, and that’s not all – seven other cities in the top 10 are in Canada: Kingston, Ont., Oshawa, Ont., Calgary, Toronto, Ottawa, Edmonton and Saskatoon.
Kiss front man Gene Simmons is coming to Canada for Canadian Music Week and is looking for the next big Canadian super band. Simmons is looking for a group that has something better than raw talent, good looks and songwriting capabilities; he is looking for star power.
“I don’t want someone who sings well, I want someone who is charismatic beyond charisma,” said Simmons, the keynote speaker at Canadian Music Week. “A star is going to be bigger than the songs they sing.”
The entrepreneur and superstar started up his own record company last year called Simmons Records. Cbc.ca reports that Simmons is exclusively interested in tapping into the Canadian music market, as Canada harbors many undiscovered musical talents.
“There is as much musical talent here as in the States, don’t kid yourself,” he said. “And unless you provide them with the industry and the pop culture, they will move across the border. It’s not far.”
Gene Simmons and co. are bound for Canada’s east coast.
KISS will headline the Halifax Rocks 2009 show in the Nova Scotia capital on July 18, the band’s first time performing in the Maritimes since the mid-’70s.
“There’s a lot that’s been written and said about the types of music that Halifax wants to see, and what we keep hearing is it wants good ol’ rock ’n’ roll,” concert promoter Harold MacKay said at a media conference Tuesday.
The event at the Commons park will also welcome four additional performers; they will be announced at a later date.
Tickets go on sale Friday at 9 a.m. via the Ticket Atlantic Box Office, select Atlantic Superstores, the Ticket Atlantic website or by phone.
KISS haven’t released a new studio album since 1998′s “Psycho Circus,” but guitarist Paul Stanley recently told Classic Rock magazine that the band may record a new album and tour European and North America in the near future.
Simmons was also in Toronto late last year scouting talent for his relaunched ’80s label, Simmons Records.
Canadian heartthrob Hayden Christensen still has a few Jedi skills. In fact, he’s a 10 out of 10, says his “Jumper” co-star Rachel Bilson.
“I’m sure all the ladies will be happy to know Hayden is a 10 when it comes to kissing,” she told Bang Showbiz.
In return, Christensen commented that, “Rachel is top notch too, we kiss well.”
Bilson and Christensen, both 26, have been spending quite a lot of time together since meeting on the “Jumper” set, but have never confirmed a relationship.
Though Bilson said she still finds sex scenes uncomfortable to film, she was glad to have Christensen as her partner. “I was lucky enough to have someone as handsome as Hayden, but it’s always a bit awkward,” she said.
“Jumper” opens Thursday.
Rocker GENE SIMMONS has ruled out ever hitting the road with the original KISS line-up again because he can no longer put up with ACE FREHLEY and PETER CRISS’ substance abuse issues.
The bass player admits he still loves his old bandmates dearly but he can no longer spend time with them on tour.
He says, “I love (Ace) dearly, he’s a sweetheart, but he’s his own worst enemy. He’s great with lots of people around but when he’s alone he doesn’t like himself. And he numbs himself. He’s been numbing himself for 34 years.
“I personally don’t want to (tour with them). I love Ace and Peter, always have, and because of my tough love thing I’ve never been shy about saying they’ve been drug addicts and alcoholics, and they’ve destroyed themselves.”
But Simmons insists he can’t completely rule out a reunion tour – especially if the price is right: “I reserve the right to change my mind about Ace and Peter any time I choose. Never say never… People say you can’t be bought… (but) even God passes the hat around at the end of the sermon.”

Paul Stanley, singer and guitarist for Kiss, has found a record label to release his first solo album in nearly 30 years. “Live to Win” will hit stores on October 24 through Universal subsidiary New Door records.
Billboard reports that the 10-track album was recorded along with drummer Victor Indrizzo, guitarist Corky James, ex-Marilyn Manson guitarist John 5, ex-Kiss guitarist Bruce Kulick, and keyboardist Harry Sommerdahl. String arrangements were put together by David Campbell.
“It’s not 1978 anymore,” Stanley said last fall, referring to the year his last solo album came out. “It’s certainly the same mentality, and certainly I’m a better singer today. My perspective and where I’m at in my life at this point, and what I’ve experienced and seen, brings something else to the table that wasn’t there then.”
A club tour is expected to be announced for this fall in support of the disc.
Here’s the complete track list for “Live to Win”:
“Live To Win”
“Wake Up Screaming”
“Every Time I See You Around”
“All About You”
“Second to None”
“It’s Not Me”
“Loving You Without You Now”
“Where Angels Dare”
They may like to rock and roll all night, but they won’t be doing it at the Rock ‘N Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony this year.
The Associated Press reports that Kiss fans held a protest outside of the museum in Cleveland on Saturday to protest the fact that the 70s rockers have not been inducted into the hall of fame, despite the fact that they have been eligible since the 1990s.
A band is eligible for induction into the hall of fame 25 years after their first record was released. The protest saw 200 Kiss fans outside the hall of fame, some even in trademark Kiss make up.
A spokesperson for the hall of fame told the Associated Press this is the first time that fans have protest an artist not getting into the hall of fame.
Kiss has made it a little easier for fans to be able to rock ‘n’ roll all night and party every day.
The 70s band Kiss, you know the guys in the makeup with lead singer Gene Simmons, who claims he has one of the biggest tongues in the world, will be giving their name to a coffee shop in South Carolina, Billboard magazine reports.
The deal was brokered through Signature Networks, the band’s exclusive merchandising company.
The Kiss Caf? is set to open June 27 in Myrtle Beach, with Kiss band mates Paul Stanley and Simmons on hand for the ribbon cutting ceremony.
