Hello World—Anthony here, back again to bring you all the latest celebrity news that had us all talking this week.
Kicking things off this week, country/pop princess, Taylor Swift, released her long awaited fourth album.
The album sold 1.1 million copies in its first week making it the singer’s biggest debut to date.
In a world where people download music illegally, 1.1 million copies is a huge feat– especially for a country artist.
Having a habit for being the voice of any girl’s breakup drama, I guess Taylor’s fans were missing her enough to go out and purchase the album legally.
Speaking of breakups, I have some sad news to report in the TV world. After two seasons, Anderson Cooper’s daytime talk show ‘Anderson Live’ has been canceled.
Excuse me while I go cry in front of my Anderson Cooper shrine in my closet.
The low rated syndicated talk show revolved around the silver fox chatting with various guests and discussing various topics.
I guess me rushing home from class and watching the show wasn’t enough for network execs to save the show. Go figure.
At least all of us Anderson Cooper fans still can catch him on Anderson Cooper 360.
In other news, it’s being reported that Rihanna and Chris Brown are rumored to be making their debut as a reunited couple at the American Music Awards. Smh.
This goes along with the other rumor that the pair is supposed to perform together at the award show.
All this information would make sense seeing as how they were both photographed coming out of the same recording studio in Los Angeles this past week.
Somewhere in the world Karrueche is giving a side eye.
Some sad news for all the 80’s and 90’s babies out there– Natina Reed from 90’s girl group’ Blaque’ passed away in Atlanta late Saturday night.
Details surrounding the singer’s death are scarce but police have revealed it was an automobile related accident.
Fans of the singer remember her as the spunky cheerleader from the rival squad in the cult classic ‘Bring It On’.
The two remaining members of the girl group released a statement addressing their fallen member’s passing.
“We are devastated by the loss of our group member, sister and friend Natina Reed. Because of the enormous support of ‘Blaque’ fans and our love for each other, Blaque officially reunited this fall and we are in the process of working on a new album and a reality show.”
Natina was only 32 at the time of her passing.
