Taylor Swift has been feuding with everyone from ex Calvin Harris to Kim Kardashian on social media lately, but on Friday the singer kept it short and sweet with a birthday message for her BFF Selena Gomez.
“Going through old pictures today, because @selenagomez just turned 24!” Swift captioned the throwback shot above. “I can’t imagine my life without you, Selena. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!”
Earlier in the week Swift took to Instagram to blast Kanye West, after Kim Kardashian leaked a recording of her husband discussing allegedly the lyrics in his song, "Famous," with Swift. Swift can be heard telling West to “go with whatever line … [you think is] better," adding, "I really appreciate you telling me about it, that’s really nice. Even asking or seeing if I’d be OK with it. I just really appreciate it. I would never have expected you to tell me about one of the lines in your song.” However, she claims that a few key things were left out of the convo. In an Instagram post on Monday, July 18, Swift wrote:
“Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me ‘that bitch’ in his song? It doesn’t exist because it never happened. You don’t get to control someone’s emotional response to being called ‘that bitch’ in front of the entire world. Of course I wanted to like the song. I wanted to believe Kanye when he told me that I would love the song. I wanted us to have a friendly relationship. He promised to play the song for me, but he never did. While I wanted to be supportive of Kanye on the phone call, you cannot ‘approve’ a song you haven’t heard. Being falsely painted as a liar when I was never given the full story or played any part of the song it character assassination. I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative, one that I have never asked to be a part of, since 2009.”

It's the battle of the hotties in tight white tees!
And while Orlando Bloom is a total babe and his arms are looking extra beefy, we have to say, we kinda prefer Joe Jonas' slightly looser, off-white t-shirt! It looks like Orly's might have spent a little bit too much time in the dryer, which is reminding us of the baby tees that were popular back in the 90s...
On Friday both of the stars were spotted out and about, and Orly was meeting a friend at Soho house in Malibu while Joe was picking up a piece of art at a frame store in West Hollywood. Orlando seems to be spending all of his time so far this summer in Malibu and with lady love Katy Perry, but this is the first time we've seen Joe running around town in months. Is it just us, or did he get even more attractive since we saw him last?!
Who pulled off their tight white tee better?

Lamar Odom walked out of an intervention in New York City, reports Extra
The family of the former Los Angeles Lakers star organized the meeting, and several relatives were there to confront Lamar, including his aunt, JaNean Mercer; his kids; and his ex-wife Liza Morales. Lamar’s cousin Alvina Alston reportedly reached out to Darryl Strawberry, in an attempt to get Lamar on a plane to start rehab at the Darryl Strawberry Recovery Center in St. Cloud, Florida. Addiction specialist Ron Dock, who is responsible for Darryl's recovery, was at the intervention, and Darryl reportedly joined in via Skype.
reports that Lamar was "extremely surprised" and left the room, but he is still in New York. His family is "committed to helping him" and will continue trying to get him to a rehabilitation facility. After surviving a nearly fatal overdose at a Nevada brothel in October 2015, Lamar seemed to be on the mend, but earlier this month Lamar was reportedly removed from a Delta Airlines flight, after he was reportedly drunk and vomiting on board.
Here's to hoping he gets the help he needs!

A super vague season seven production teaser for Game of Thrones was played at the show's Comic-Con panel on Friday in San Diego, and though it didn't offer us much, it's always exciting to even get a tidbit of what to expect next year!
Cast and producers were there to weigh in on some of the biggest moments last season, and Kristian Nairn, who played Hodor, admitted to being taken aback by fans' response to the death of his character. "I did not expect it to be so crazy," he said. "I’m really flattered." Aww! Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, joked that her character didn't tell Jon Snow (played by Kit Harington) about the Knights of the Vale because "she wanted all the credit," not to mention that "it makes for really good television."
Oh and the best part? Definitely the blooper reel:

Just a few hours before she was scheduled to fly to Las Vegas for her friend Ariana's bachelorette party, Kim Kardashian had a major emergency -- she chipped one of her front teeth!
Luckily the 35-year-old reality star was able to get in touch with her dentist, Dr. Kevin Sands, who squeezed her in for an appointment. After Dr. Sands patched thing back up, Kim and pals, including Larsa Pippen and Maria Menounos, hopped on a private jet and fly to Sin City. Kim arrived at Hakkasan at 1 a.m., but she still made time to chat with reporters.
While during press on the red carpet, Kim revealed that son Saint said his first words earlier in the day. “He said ‘dada’ today, three times and I was like ‘what’?,” the reality star gushed. “Kanye [West] was so excited. He was like ‘I told him to say that.’ I was like, ‘I just really wanted him to say momma first.’" Of course she did...

Thanks to a new reality TV show and a squabble with Jenny McCarthy, Tara Reid has been back in the news lately.
On Friday's episode of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, program directors Jim and Elizabeth Carroll had the couples on the show reveal painful experiences in their past, and when it was Tara's turn, she discussed bullying, but no one was really buying her story. "She was just feeding me BS," Elizabeth said. "But if I push her, she'll just close down."
Elizabeth kept pushing Tara, and that's when it got even more awkward than the interview with Jenny earlier this month. "I don't want to do this," Tara whined. "It's not your fault. It's my fault for letting all of this ever happen. I did everything I can do to keep people out of trouble."
The camera cut to Toya, one of the other participants, asking Tara's boyfriend Dean May if Tara was OK, and he replied, "She drinks. She's the worst on alcohol. She's train-wrecking." After that he motioned to Tara to wrap things up, which resulted in yet another fight for the couple, who many believe aren't together IRL. "I just want you to let me go and live my life right now!" Tara screamed. "I just want you to leave me alone, and stop f--king picking on me!"
Yikes. Get this girl off the booze.

Something to tell us, Kimmy?
Kim Kardashian slipped into a tight brown dress to take care of business in Beverly Hills today, and we wonder how she feels about pal Fergie hinting that her feud with Taylor Swift is one big publicity stunt?
The Duchess appeared on the Kyle and Jackie O
show yesterday and offered her thoughts on Kimye's beef with T-Swizz, suggesting that all the drama might be a carefully crafted bid for attention.
"You've gotta respect her for sticking up for her husband,
" the singer said of Kim. "Knowing them, it's probably a big master plan. They'll probably all come together at the MTV Awards or something,
" she joked.
Publicity stunt? The Kardashians? Never!

She's getting more daring in the style department!
Caitlyn Jenner dressed for the hot California temperatures in a flirty mini dress when she dropped by the studio yesterday, and the transgender star didn't take long to get back to work on her reality show following her appearance at the RNC in Cleveland.
The Olympian details her greatest accomplishments in a new H&M campaign, and besides being proud of the bravery it took to transition, she also heaped some praise on her ex Kris.
"In the '80s, I was really down in the dumps. I didn't know which way my life was going at that point. Set up on a blind date by a friend, she [Kris] had a great sense of style, of class, and I give a lot of credit to Kris for kind of bringing me back to life," she recalls in the clip. "It was a very busy house and quite a ride, but I loved it, and that's what I did," she added.
She made sure to emphasize that being a father was her ultimate favorite role, though.
"The greatest thing in my life I've ever done -- barring the Games, barring anything -- is children. I have never been more proud as you can be as a dad, to see what they've been able to do with their lives. My kids, by far, are my greatest accomplishment -- better than a medal," she gushed.
Let's hope this new, less selfish Cait sticks around!
