The 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' singer - who is rumoured to be dating One Direction star Harry Styles and previously romanced John Mayer, Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner and Jake Gyllenhaal - has revealed that she once promised one of them she would never write a song about their relationship but later did it anyway.
The 22-year-old country star told the New York Times Magazine: ''The only time that has ever crossed someone's mind was when we were in the process of breaking up. Of course I was like, 'Oh, don't worry, I won't.' And then I did. Look, it's not like it was written somewhere in the fine print that I write songs about my life. If we break up, I'm going to write about it. But I'm probably also going to write about when I fell in love with you. So there's an upside.''
Taylor also opened up about her song 'The Last Time', which is rumoured to be about 'Love And Other Drugs' actor Jake, 31.
She said: ''That all came out of this one relationship I was in. This guy was just, so, so cool. It kind of gave me a bit of a complex for this album.''
She did not deny the song is about the actor but insisted she doesn't have any interest in hurting her ex-boyfriends through her lyrics.
She said: ''I don't talk about who it is specifically because these are real people. You try to give insight as to where you were coming from as a writer without completely throwing somebody under the bus.''
NO LEATHER SUITS?
When Bryan Singer's original X-Men hit theaters in 2000, the fan response was somewhat mixed to the lack of some of the characters' iconic costumes, opting instead for matching black leather uniforms. James Marsden's Cyclops even offers the in-joke to Wolverine at one point, "What would you prefer? Yellow spandex?"
Today, those who do prefer yellow spandex may be getting their wish. Singer took to Twitter earlier this evening with the following post:
Scheduled for release on July 18, 2014, X-Men: Days of Future Past boasts a script by Simon Kinberg and is said to be inspired Chris Claremont and John Byrne's comic book storyline that ran in Uncanny X-Men #141 and 142 back in 1981. "Days of Future Past" introduced the idea of an alternate future for Marvel's mutants that grew out of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants killing an important senator, leading to a future where all mutants are hunted by Sentinels.
Along with Matthew Vaughn, Singer produced last year's X-Men: First Class which, set in the 1960's, offered school uniforms a bit more in line with the classic, colorful designs.
Ten future X-Men films lined up by 20th Century Fox, with X-Force and Cable among possibilities
Fox insiders tell us that the script for the next X-Men film Days of Future Past did not change because of The Avengers - and we already knew the studio has wanted to tackle that particular comic book tale since at least 2005, hence the nod towards it in the Danger Room sequence of 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand.
But it's clear that the studio now has an eye on the bigger picture of an ongoing franchise rather than focusing only on one film at a time (and risking a much looser continuity).
Bryan Singer - who's now directing the X-Men sequel after Vaughn stepped back to a producer role - has previously spoken of new efforts to create a shared cinematic universe and this was confirmed when comic book scribe Mark Millar was appointed creative consultant.
So where exactly are we heading? Millar gives some clues on the expanded universe now being developed by the studio.
He says Fox will begin to unfold its plans for a more coherent franchise starting with its next release, The Wolverine, due out in July 2013. That will serve as the first step in the road ahead, much like Iron Man was for the newborn Marvel Studios back in 2008.
Millar told Comic Book Resources: "I didn't work on The Wolverine in a direct sense. There were about two months of shooting done when I got this job, but I've got a couple of ideas from it. I wasn't involved in that screenplay - though I read it and loved it. But the thing is, I felt like Iron Man was really the beginning of something for the Marvel Studios movies, and The Wolverine will be a similar starting point to build a lot off of for the Fox movies."
He added: "There's an amazing amount of potential in the X-Men universe. It's almost a Marvel Universe in itself in that you can build up to so many great stories and so many great characters. I hesitate to name names, but let's say that all the ones you like and everyone you'd expect, we'll have them. It's insane to have the crown jewel and not expect to wear them.
"You have to remember that Fox grabbed the X-Men back in the 90s because it was the biggest franchise in the world. So X-Force or Cable or Deadpool - all these amazing characters are things we haven't really gotten to yet.
While we were awfully disappointed to hear Matthew Vaughn wouldn’t be directing X-Men: Days of Future Past, we’re really starting to warm up to the idea of having Bryan Singer back in the director’s chair. Even though X-Men: First Class was incredible, X-Men and X2 were actually really good as well.
Plus, it looks like Bryan Singer is really taking an active role in getting the picture moving forward sooner rather than later. Singer has started communicating updates about the movie via Twitter, which is always a good move in helping to win over fanboys.
In his first tweet, Bryan Singer revealed that pre-production had already begun on X-Men: Days of Future Past. Now, Singer has revealed what looks to be the filming location for the movie. Singer tweeted, “Scout went well. Looks like Montreal it is.”
But that’s not all. Singer also tweeted “My office. Late night script session with Simon Kinberg.” Along with the tweet came this picture of Simon Kinberg hard at work on the screenplay. Kinberg seems to be enjoying himself which is a good sign. Hey, is that a picture of the original X-Men cast on the coffee table in front of him. Maybe, it’s there as a little source of inspiration?
THE WOLVERINE NEWS
A more detailed synopsis has been released for The Wolverine, revealing that the metal-clawed mutant will face his 'ultimate nemesis' as well as an inner struggle with the immortality that results from his regenerative powers.
The film hits cinemas on July 25, 2013, with the Fox creative consultant Mark Millar saying it will be the equivalent of Marvel's Iron Man, by launching a new 'shared universe' for the studio's superhero projects in the same way that Robert Downey Jr's film began paving the way towards The Avengers.
The new plot description from 20th Century Fox reads: "Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern-day Japan.
"Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed.
"Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before."
Villains in the movie will include Silver Samurai, played by Will Yun Lee , and Viper, played by Svetlana Khodchenkova.

Joel McHale makes a living cracking jokes as the star of NBC’s “Community” and the host of E!’s clip show “The Soup.” But a couple decades ago, he was cracking skulls as a member of the University of Washington football team. Or trying to, at least. McHale spoke to ESPN.com this week about his secret jock past, and how his sense of humor won him respect in the locker room.
This fantastic photo of McHale (provided by the UW Vault on WhoSay) was taken outside the Rose Bowl in 1993, a year after the future TV star first joined the Huskies football team as a walk-on to play tight end. McHale reveals he was actually brought into UW to play another sport: “I had been recruited to row, and I only played one year of football in high school. I got into a fight with the crew team over not pushing in a chair properly… That was pretty much the end of that.”
McHale never got to play in an actual game, but he spent a year and a half on the Huskies scout team, helping the starters prepare for their next opponent, and earned a reputation as a tough competitor. Fellow tight end Ernie Conwell, who went on to have a decade-long NFL career, remembers: “We kind of prided ourselves on being tough-nosed and hard-working, and he fit right in there perfectly with us… He was tough, he could catch the ball, and he wasn’t afraid to put his body on the line.” But former Huskies linebacker Chico Fraley damns McHale with faint praise: “He didn’t have any memorable hits or anything like that. But he was good enough not to be remembered for how bad he was.” (Alright, Joel, way to go!)
McHale found his niche, though, when the team held its annual talent show. When his turn came, he parodied the team’s trainer, who was notorious for treating every injury the same way. “A player would come in with a hurt ankle and it was just like, ‘We’ll ice it and give you some Advil,’” McHale recalls. “Then we dragged this body in and it was, ‘Let’s ice him up and give him some Advil and he’ll be fine.’ Then of course the kicker came in -- kickers never get hit -- ‘I jammed my thumb,’ or something very small. That’s when I said, ‘Bring the cortisone shot! Bring the gurney!’ They very much appreciated that.” You know, that football player might have a future in comedy after all.
And here I thought his recent super-fit look was a new habit brought on by popularity.
such an inspiration ♥
The 73-year-old actor became distressed filming the Sir Peter Jackson-directed movie, and mistakenly told the crew he did not become an actor to pretend pictures on sticks were dwarves.
He said: ''I had a miserable day. In order to shoot the dwarves and a large Gandalf, we couldn't be in the same set.
''All I had for company was 13 photographs of the dwarves on top of stands with little lights - whoever's talking flashes up. Pretending you're with 13 other people when you're on your own, it stretches your technical ability to the absolute limits.
''And I cried, actually. I cried. Then I said out loud, 'This is not why I became an actor'. Unfortunately the microphone was on and the whole studio heard.''
However, he was pleased to find everything had been made pleasant for him on his next day of filming.
He said: ''The next day I went into my little tent and it had all been decorated beautifully. Remnants of Rivendell, carpets and cushions, fresh fruit and flowers, things that were hanging. It was lovely.''
POP sweethearts Leona Lewis and One Direction’s Liam Payne enjoyed a steamy 60-minute dressing room love-in at Children In Need on Friday night.
BBC crews were told to ensure the pair were not disturbed as the smitten couple cosied-up for a full hour after their performances on the charity show.
Chart-topping Leona hinted she had “feelings” for the hunky boyband star in an interview last month.
But news of the hour-long dressing room tryst will heighten rumours they have begun a relationship.
Last night a TV source told us: “Liam and Leona shared a dressing room on Friday night.
“Crew were told in no uncertain terms they should not be disturbed for a full hour after her performance.”
News of the couple’s burgeoning romance first broke last month after 19-year-old Payne split from his long-term girlfriend, dancer Danielle Peazer, in September.
Meanwhile East London-based Leona, 27, has previously dated dancer Dennis Jauch, 24, and her childhood sweetheart Lou Al-Chamaa.
Other reports last week claimed the pair are planning to snatch some quality time together in California over Christmas. Last month the Bleeding Love singer said of her new man: “Liam is very handsome and very sweet…but he is young.
“He’s got his head screwed on and has good values and morals.
“We’ve known each other for a good couple of years. I met him through our label and management, plus we would bump into each other at shows.”
The pair’s latest rendezvous came as they showcased their new singles on the BBC charity show.
Lewis performed her new song Fireflies while One Direction wowed fans with a pulsating version of Live While We’re Young.
Big-hearted Brits donated a record-breaking £26.7million during the seven-hour live show, with more money expected to pour in over the next few weeks.
Highlights of the 33rd fundraiser also included an exclusive Doctor Who “prequel” to its Christmas special.
David Ramsden, chief executive of BBC Children in Need, said: “Tonight’s total is phenomenal. It is amazing that people across the UK have once again come together to raise such a massive sum.
“Thank you so much for helping to change thousands of young lives in the UK.”

If you had a burning desire to match NBA stars to their pop music counterparts, consider it completely quenched.
As you can see, there is a lot here, and we give you but a sampling of the depth to which Spin Magazine goes as they match up 40 athletes with their pop doppelgangers of sorts.
The top of the list has LeBron James matching wits with Jack White, and I agree with them completely. Both White and James share a certain level of versatility and talent that is largely unmatched in their respective spheres.
They write that White is "our biggest, brightest, most actively evolving rock star, a supernova," a person they feel brings the best out of whomever he is collaborating with.
As a person who has come around a great deal on James and what he brings to the NBA, I tend to agree with this one.
Kobe Bryant is all Yeezy, and the haters may agree. Hell, Lakers fans have to nod in agreement as well because the comparison is a just one.
The magazine sees Kanye West's transformation from a one-man show trying to strut his stuff to someone welcoming a great deal of collaboration.
As for Bryant, they say, "Bryant isn't merely tolerating collaboration from the likes of Dwight Howard, Steve Nash, and Pau Gasol, he's relying on it. Watch the Throne, indeed, Miami."
I can see them linking Dwight Howard to Nicki Minaj, but more from a "look at me" standpoint than anything else.
They even have Dirk Nowitzki linked to Radiohead, which, on many levels, is sweet perfection.
"Whether pioneering pay-what-you-can album releases or perfecting the one-legged fadeaway, seeking inspiration from unlikely sources and mad-genius mentors, or just making some curious hairchoices, these cerebral, avant-leaning giants attain excellence by unconventional methods."
Pop culture and sports are constantly riding side by side as we consume both for our enjoyment. The link between basketball stars and pop music was there to be made.
Now that it has, we have something else to debate.

Super hard working crew
Frank Ocean's 'Super Rich Kids', from his debut album 'Channel Orange' is a celebration of excess and youth which quickly dissolves into a basic plea for honest emotion. This music video will support the authenticity and emotion of the song while introducing an additional layer of visual drama that complements the mood and creates a compelling piece of cinema in its own right. Compelling cinematic imagery of teenagers spoiled to death by their excessive partying and expensive taste along with style and locations being hard shadows on bare white walls. Overall, the video will be richly visual and highly cinematic. Much like the song, it will be suggestive of a narrative without telling a detailed story. It will take the elements of a standard 'teenage party' pop video and adapt them into an unexpected, nightmare-like sequences.

Are you ready for possibly the cutest Adam Lambert post on the planet? Yes? Perfect.
Imagine you’re a little girl obsessed with Adam. Now imagine that you not only meet Adam, but you have him sign a photo for you, read a letter you wrote him and he gives you a hug. That’s exactly what happened for 7-year-old Erin Korcz when she got to meet Adam, her idol, in South Africa over the weekend.
Erin got passes to his press conference and when the reporters were asked if they had any questions, Erin made her way to the front and asked him to sign a picture she’d brought with “Dear Adam, I love you. Love, Erin” written on it. Adam then invited her on stage–what a gem.
She also gave him a letter, which was apparently adorable. When she finished Adam told her, “I like you too and you are cute.” To which Erin replied, ” No you cute!” This is basically one of the cutest stories ever.

The Amazing Race Season 21, Episode 8 - "We Was Robbed" - Moscow, Russia
Rockers James & Abba could not recover after having their passports stolen in the last leg and were eliminated.
This week's placements
1. James & Jaymes (Chippendale Dancers)
2. Trey & Lexi (Texans)
3. Natalie & Nadiya (Twins)
4. Abbie & Ryan (Dating Divorcees)
5. Josh & Brent (Goat Farmers/Beekman Boys)

Nice to see Jaymes/James get their shit together and finally pull off a first place finish. They're the shining light of this awful season and I hope they win.
Interesting to see that they didn't display the departure times like they usually do... I'm curious how far behind Abbie/Ryan, Josh/Brent, and James/Abba were.
Also, someone pointed out on another forum, they're very clearly showing each arrival at the pitstop saying hello/goodbye in their native language. Potentially part of the final challenge?
Taylor has gone a little dark. And I fucking love it!
Newcomers Kenya and Porsha go throat to throat with each other during a charity event, which Kenya dubs "whack", and they hold NOTHING back! Kenya explains why she’s so mad at Porsha.
"This woman who I just met, who asked me to come to her event, gets on the mike and calls me Miss America," the former Miss USA says during a one-on-one camera segment.
Cue the cat fight! "You are being disrespectful," Porsha tells Kenya! "Disrespectful is inviting me to an event and not even knowing what my title is!" Kenya snaps.
Instead of apologizing, Porsha says the title was from ages ago – "From 19-whenever, I don’t remember that," she snipes, before ordering Kenya to leave the event.
"No sweetheart," Kenya says. "You didn't kick me out, this is my back as I am leaving!"
NeNe Leakes has achieved what many of the real housewives no doubt have only dreamt of: a legit acting career. After seeing her spar with Star Jones on Celebrity Apprentice, Ryan Murphy cast her in a recurring role on Glee and later as a series regular in The New Normal. But Leakes tells Vulture why she wants to stay on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and even promises more drama.
Do you have Tyler Perry’s correct phone number now?
It was correct then [laughs].
What happened then?
He has this on his phone, this crazy silly voicemail that goes [in a high-pitched voice] Doo doo doooo. The number you have reached has been disconnected. It’s just something he has on his phone, but that is his phone number.
You sound very excited when you’re talking about acting. Do you enjoy doing the reality show as much?
You know what? I think this is the best year I’ve had as a Housewife. I feel like I’ve come full circle. I feel the best, I look the best, I am just a grown woman and I’m in a much better place now than I was a season or two ago. I’ve never had an issue being a Housewife or saying my opinions or fighting with any of the girls. I feel like I’m a great Housewife! [laughs]
Atlanta continues to be the most-watched edition of all the Housewives series. Why do you think that is?
I know we’re the only brown girls in the franchise. I feel like people tune in because we’re very different. You tune in to Miami and New York and Beverly Hills and get the same thing: plastic surgery, blonde, big tits. In Atlanta, it’s a little bit more real. And we’re not afraid of the cameras being there. Everybody lets loose. We’re just entertaining.
Do you know why Sheree exited the show? Do you still talk to her?
[The producers] chose not to pick up her option for this past season. I know she’s out there telling people that she decided to leave the show, but from what I know that is not what she decided to do. That is what they decided to do. She put out whatever reports she wanted to put out and I don’t think they tried to challenge it because they don’t really give a shit at the end of the day. She wasn’t invited back, Lisa Hartwell wasn’t invited back, DeShawn Snow wasn’t invited back. I don’t talk to any of those girls. I feel like they’re all gone for a reason, and I don’t think any of them were smart enough to stick around for this long, and I don’t think any of them were smart enough to use this platform in ways they could have used it. They’re gone and I don’t think that they’re missed.
Kandi recently said she admires how you’ve parlayed the success of Atlanta into an acting career.
Both Kandi and I have a business sense — that’s one thing a lot of girls on the show don’t have. Some people come on these shows to be famous. I was never interested in fame. I was always interested in supporting my family.
You told the New York Post that you can’t be a Housewife forever, but you also tweeted a few days ago that you had no plans to leave. Is continuing on Atlanta something you go back and forth about with your acting career picking up?
No, I never go back and forth on it. The show isn’t going to last forever. At some point, we all have to say goodbye to being a Housewife. Is that time now for me? I don’t think so.
