Celebritease: ‘Famous’ sparks feud

Were you single this Valentine’s Day? Well, there is good news from the set of the “Gilmore Girls” revival to make you feel not so jaded over love — all three of Rory’s love interests have signed on for the revival. That’s right, Logan, Dean and Jess are all on their way back to Stars Hollow.

The news broke when Milo Ventimiglia, who plays Jess on the show, posted a photo on Twitter of a copy of his script, thus breaking the Internet. It was then confirmed that Vanessa Marano will be reprising her role as Luke’s daughter, April Nardini. Some fans were disheartened by the news because it means uncertainty for soulmates Luke and Lorelai.

One character not on her way back to the Dragonfly Inn is Sookie St. James. The show’s creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino, reported that Melissa McCarthy was too busy to return to the revival, but McCarthy alleged that she was never asked to return. Whether it was a miscommunication or not, the adorable head chef will be missed.

Kanye West and Taylor Swift were not feeling the love this holiday weekend when West’s new track, “Famous,” dropped. In the middle of all the hype over his Yeezy Season 3 fashion line unveil at Madison Square Garden, one line from the new track could not go unnoticed.

“I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. I made that bitch famous,” West raps.

When Swift’s famous girl squad began speaking out in her defense, West tapped back into Twitter after his epic Wiz Khalifa feud to justify his decision to use the line. There was disparity between the two sides over whether Swift had known that her name would be used in such a way. West even accused Swift of being the mastermind behind the line when she was out to dinner with  a mutual friend by allegedly joking that she could never be mad at West for his MTV Video Music Award outburst because it made her famous.

Swift fired back through a representative, who stated that Swift was never made aware of the actual lyric, but encouraged West not to release the song because of its misogynistic message.

Swift’s brother, Austin, reacted to the line by posting a video to his Instagram where he can be seen throwing out his pair of Yeezy sneakers. Gigi Hadid also took to social media to support Swift. While modeling Yeezy’s latest clothing line, Hadid tweeted to set the record straight that just because she was modeling in the show did not mean she supported the designer’s views.

After West had already raised eyebrows for tweeting his thoughts on Bill Cosby’s alleged sexual assault and rape charges, actress Ruby Rose tweeted in support of Taylor Swift and Cosby’s victims. Rose noted that she would not be a feminist or a friend to Swift if she supported West’s comments.

The world’s best boyfriend, Calvin Harris, has yet to formally comment, but he did show support on Austin Swift’s Instagram video by liking and commenting on the video. It can only be assumed that he gave Swift the best Valentine’s Day ever to make her feel better and is probably already plotting his revenge against West.
