Fans Think Taylor Swift’s «Dress» Is About Ed Sheeran, but We’re Here to Tell You It’s Not

Taylor Swift is back and addressing her reputation. After being on hiatus for over a year, the singer finally dropped her sixth studio album, Reputation, and she did not hold back. While Taylor pretty much takes swipes at all her nemeses throughout the entire album, there is one track in particular that has several people talking. Many of Taylor’s fans believe that «Dress,» which is the 12th track on the album, is about pal Ed Sheeran. Given the fact that she makes a reference to Ed’s song «Shape of You» and talks about wanting to like someone as more than a best friend, it sure seems like Taylor could be talking about Ed, but it looks like the song may actually be about her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn. Here’s why.

  • «Our secret moments / In your crowded room / They’ve got no idea / About me and you.» — Here, Taylor seems to reference the beginning of her relationship with Joe. News broke in May that Taylor had struck up a romance with the British actor, but according to The Sun, Taylor had been renting a house in North London and the two managed to keep their relationship a secret for months by wearing disguises.
  • «Nights back when you met me / Your buzz cut and my hair bleached.» — This is perhaps the most telling lyric. Taylor had platinum blond hair when she attended the Met Gala in 2016, and it just so happens that Joe had a buzz cut. Hmm . . . It’s also worth pointing out that Taylor was still dating Calvin Harris at the time.

‘Late Night With Seth Meyers’: Even Hillary Has A Few Jokes Seth Can’t Tell

Yesterday marked the one year anniversary of… you know what? Let’s not keep talking about it. It still hurts. Instead, let’s focus on the fact that Hillary Clinton dropped by Late Night with Seth Meyers last night to show us how to laugh again.

At first, it’s just another typically hilarious installment of «Jokes Seth Can’t Tell,» with Seth flanked by writers/wingwomen Amber Ruffin and Jenny Hagel. He tells the set up, they land the punchline, and everyone is happy. It’s good. It’s comforting. It’s familiar.

And then they introduce Hillary Fucking Clinton, because some jokes can only be told by the winner of the popular vote. While I don’t think she’ll be reinventing herself as a comedian anytime soon, it’s still nice to see her looking so relaxed and game. Especially yesterday, of all days.

The Thrilling Finale of ‘The Deuce’ Will Tell Us Which Men Will Continue Successfully Exploiting Women

World Series Game #5 on Fox at 8:00pm ET. The series is all tied up so far, anyone with strong feelings about whether or not they’ll get to a Game 7 this year?

The Deuce on HBO at 9:00pm ET. 75 minute first season finale. I’ve been watching this and enjoying it, but I think it’s suffering a bit from a lack of central conflict. Each character’s story has conflict in it, but there’s not really any kind of a main motivating force driving the story forward so it’s hard to feel like you need to watch right away each week to see what happens. At least that’s how I feel. Maybe some of you really are on the edge of your seat to see if Candy/Eileen will continue to grow in her new porn work or if Fuck-Up Franco will fuck up this week and cause problems for his brother Morally Conflicted Franco, even though he seems to have miraculously stopped fucking up since the series started.

Ray Donovan on Showtime at 9:00pm ET. Fifth season finale.

The Walking Dead on AMC at 9:00pm ET.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver on HBO at 11:17pm ET. I feel like this might be an extra-enjoyable night to watch.

What’s It Like At SEC Games? Look At Mississippi State Fan’s Saturday In Starkville…This Should Tell You

I wanted the dust to settle on the Mississippi State fan videos and photos that were flying around on Tuesday before putting together a full blog post on what went down Saturday in Starkvegas. I was hoping there would be more videos, more photos of Dogs fan pushing that stroller. Maybe a bloodied mugshot.

Kentucky was in town. The game was a blowout. None of that matters.

What matters is what happened at the tailgate where this beast ignored his family duties in order to take on an entire tailgate. Maybe someone said something about the Yeti in the stroller. I’m still searching for the police report.

I’m asked at least 1-2 times a week by people heading south to see SEC tailgating what it’s like at SEC tailgates. I’ve been to five different locations (A&M, Alabama, LSU, Ole Miss, Tennessee) and there’s pretty much a common theme at each location: emotions.

Someone is always looking to whoop some ass. They get drunk, chase some ass, drink more and then the emotions start to elevate to a drop-the-gloves level. I actually think the good ol boys fight just to release a little stress. They might get their faces bashed in, but it makes them feel better in the end. A little black eye is no big deal at work on Monday.

Look, a guy like Camo Dad hit the big city and had himself a day. This isn’t news. The news here is that he took off his belt and wanted to whoop some ass. SEC antennae went off on that one. Instant triggering around the SEC. That got people’s attention for sure.

You Can Tell A Lot About the Personality of a Cast from the Gag Reel

I love a good gag reel, and what’s so great about them is that very often you can get a feel for what the cast of a movie or a show is like when you see them during an unguarded moment, when they know what they’re saying is not going to be on the screen. A gag reel reveals who these people really are, and occasionally, in a gag reel, you’ll see an actor say or do something that might fall under the category of «funny, but also kind of dickish.» Or if you see a gag reel with only, like, four gags, you know that there’s probably not a lot of fun moments on that set (gag reels involving Jennifer Aniston quickly come to mind).

With The Good Place gag reel, I am happy to report that all of these people are absolute delights! They are funny, and foul-mouthed, and they clearly all adore each one another. And if you were ever wondering how Kristen Bell ended up with Dax Shepard, it’s because Kristen Bell is just like Dax Shepard. She burps. She farts. And she is not ashamed. And the fact that Ted Danson — who has been working in this industry for 45 years — is still so much fun to be around says a lot about him. He’s good people.

This cast is great, and they must absolutely love going to work every day.

James Cameron, a Man, Continues to Tell Women Who Their Role Models Should Be

Image Source: Getty / Astrid Stawiarz

James Cameron is relentless. Not only is he forcing four Avatar sequels upon us (who asked for those?), but the Terminator director is also doubling down on his controversial quotes about Gal Gadot’s performance in Wonder Woman.

In an interview with The Guardian in August, Cameron criticized «the self-congratulatory back-patting Hollywood’s been doing» over the success of the Patty Jenkins-directed blockbuster. «She’s an objectified icon, and it’s just male Hollywood doing the same old thing!» he fumed about Gadot’s appearance as the iconic superhero. «I’m not saying I didn’t like the movie but, to me, it’s a step backwards. Sarah Connor was not a beauty icon. She was strong, she was troubled, she was a terrible mother, and she earned the respect of the audience through pure grit. And to me, [the benefit of characters like Sarah] is so obvious. I mean, half the audience is female!»

His comments insinuating that a woman can only be strong if she shuns her femininity were bafflingly misguided. The claim that Gadot’s Diana was too pretty and therefore unable to be worshiped as a feminist icon the way Terminator‘s Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) character is quickly earned a fiery response from Jenkins. «James Cameron’s inability to understand what Wonder Woman is, or stands for, to women all over the world is unsurprising as, though he is a great filmmaker, he is not a woman,» she said. «Strong women are great . . . But if women have to always be hard, tough and troubled to be strong, and we aren’t free to be multidimensional or celebrate an icon of women everywhere because she is attractive and loving, then we haven’t come very far have we.»

Despite being roundly criticized for the interview, Cameron continued to add fuel to the dumpster fire when he recently sat down with The Hollywood Reporter. Instead of backtracking, he confirmed that he stands by his opinion of Wonder Woman:

«Yes, I’ll stand by that. I mean, [Gal Gadot] was Miss Israel, and she was wearing a kind of bustier costume that was very form-fitting. She’s absolutely drop-dead gorgeous. To me, that’s not breaking ground. They had Raquel Welch doing stuff like that in the ’60s. It was all in a context of talking about why Sarah Connor — what Linda created in 1991 — was, if not ahead of its time, at least a breakthrough in its time. I don’t think it was really ahead of its time because we’re still not [giving women these types of roles].»

For someone so upset by how «drop-dead gorgeous» Gadot looked in Wonder Woman, he certainly seems pretty focused on her body, huh?

As infuriating as those comments were, Cameron — a rich, successful white man — wasn’t yet done telling women why their choice in role model is wrong.

«Linda [Hamilton] looked great. She just wasn’t treated as a sex object. There was nothing sexual about her character. It was about angst, it was about will, it was about determination. She was crazy, she was complicated . . . She wasn’t there to be liked or ogled, but she was central, and the audience loved her by the end of the film. So as much as I applaud Patty directing the film and Hollywood, uh, ‘letting’ a woman direct a major action franchise, I didn’t think there was anything groundbreaking in Wonder Woman. I thought it was a good film. Period. I was certainly shocked that [my comment] was a controversial statement. It was pretty obvious in my mind. I just think Hollywood doesn’t get it about women in commercial franchises. Drama, they’ve got that cracked, but the second they start to make a big commercial action film, they think they have to appeal to 18-year-old males or 14-year-old males, whatever it is. Look, it was probably a little bit of a simplistic remark on my part, and I’m not walking it back, but I will add a little detail to it, which is: I like the fact that, sexually, she had the upper hand with the male character, which I thought was fun.»

As Jenkins noted in her response to Cameron’s initial comments, «There is no right and wrong kind of powerful woman.» We’ve seen all kinds of incredible, inspirational women on our screens as of late: Charlize Theron’s secret agent in Atomic Blonde, space explorer Daniels (Katherine Waterston) in Alien: Covenant, and even Zendaya’s small, scene-stealing role as MJ in Spider-Man: Homecoming, which sees her bucking a number of superhero movie cliches.

Diana, Princess of Themyscira, Daughter of Hippolyta — with her short skirt, metal bustier, and knee-high boots — is absolutely among them. With Cameron’s Terminator reboot starring Hamilton in the works, I can only hope that she’s half as nuanced as Jenkins ensured Diana be.

Coach Gruden Stops By To Tell Us Some Incredible Football Stories…Seriously…It’s Coach Gruden

Jon Gruden’s an Ohio guy. Born in Sandusky. Played college ball (barely, as he acknowledges) at Dayton. Football guys guy. His dad was an Ohio football guy and once coached at Fremont High School, about an hour southeast of Toledo. Jon once installed a Raiders offensive package for Charles Woodson called “Fremont.”

Of course Gruden was the perfect interview for Uncle BC. I live in this area where the Grudens have deep ties. I have Ohio questions for days. I even brought in Michigan Man Bellino (@ACBellinofrom the growing BC Friday Show on Facebook to handle the hosting duties for this one because this will pretty much become a feather in his broadcasting career.

He’ll be using this forever.

What did we learn from Coach Gruden:

• Keep your tailgating simple. Cold Corona, burgers, good tunes

• Coach tells us why, in 1984, that he wanted to become the University of Michigan football coach

• We also learned how many pushups his son, Deuce, would need to spot him in a pushup contest

• And maybe my favorite nugget, we get a story about Coach Gruden climbing on a motel roof to watch a practice and what happened when the coach saw him up there

Which Is Which? 4 Ways to Tell Cole and Dylan Sprouse Apart

If you watched the Disney Channel as a kid in the ’00s, you probably remember Cole and Dylan Sprouse from The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. The brothers were born on Aug. 2, 1992, and are identical twins, but that still doesn’t mean they are carbon copies of each other. In fact, Dylan is the older brother since he was born first. While it’s certainly easier to tell them apart now thanks to Cole’s dark hairdo, there was a time when it was almost impossible. Here are the easiest ways to tell the Sprouse twins apart.
