Sure, this is unimportant and fluffy. But there’s a distinct lack of rape and corruption in this story, so we’ve got that going for us. TMZ reports that queen of the rat catchers Taylor Swift performed at the Z100 iHeartRadio Jingle Ball at Madison Square Garden on Friday night, and she was seen walking in HOLDING HANDS WITH BOYFRIEND JOE ALWYN!!!! Despite her writing 1/2 an album about him (the other half is made up of cheery songs about how everyone who has wronged will pay in the end), Taylor is almost never seen in public with her actor boyfriend. UNTIL NOW.

You can also see some quick footage of Tay Tay and Joe scurrying into the building here. Thrill to the one fan screaming “Taylor, can we get a quick photo? We’re from Indiana!” You would have had better luck screaming that you had an effigy of Kanye for her to set on fire.
Taylor had some very special guests introduce her at the concert. Scientology escapee and Jamie Foxx’s no-longer-secret lover Katie Holmes and her always elegant 11-year-old daughter Suri Cruise took the stage to welcome one of the mother and daughter’s “favorite performers.” via People:
While her mom kicked off the introduction, Suri helped by happily saying the pop star’s name right on cue.
“She’s one of our favorite performers and who is it tonight?” Holmes said before Suri enthusiastically yelled: “Taylor Swift!”
This is hard to admit but I’m really into TayTay’s new record. It’s mostly because, besides singing about the men she tortures and how much she hates Kanye, she’s drinking in almost every song. Seriously, she sings about drinking beer, whiskey, Old Fashioneds, and just tons of booze. She’s spilling wine in the bathtub and ordering dudes to make her drinks. This is an alcoholic Taylor Swift I can get behind!
