She may look like a good girl, but Taylor Swift is often surrounded by scandal and romantic mishaps. She has recently been dealing with a nude photo scandal. A leaked photo was put on the internet by a website called Celebrity Jihad. Swift is suing the website, claiming that the photo is not of her. Swift’s lawyers issued the website a cease and desist, demanding for the photo to be taken down. While she has not come forward and made any comment about the photos, her lawyers seem to be handling it. However, the website has not made any decision yet whether or not they will comply with Swift’s demands.

Justin Timberlake is a long way from his N*Sync days. Now a legitimate actor and musician in his own right, Timberlake has earned the accolades of Hollywood peers and press alike. However, Timberlake recently announced decisions to take a Hollywood hiatus in order to explore the world and relax. He told Esquire Magazine:

I think you can work and work and work and never really live. The plan is to have no plan. I’ll probably travel, but I’d rather be spontaneous. I feel like I’ve earned at least a little bit of time to do that…

There were times I was motivated by the fact I wanted to be the biggest music star in the world. Maybe it wasn’t a conscious thought, but it was an underlying theme. I’ve spent a lot of time feeling like I needed to validate so much of who I was by what I did.

After I turned 30 I started asking myself questions why… The only validation I crave now is to be inspired in the same way I’ve always been. That’s all I really owe myself at this point. If I stopped now, I could look at everything I’ve done and be so proud.

Last week, Usher was attending a Halloween Parade, and apparently his celebrity ego prompted him to take up a handicap parking space. Parade attendees were not very pleased by his selfishness. One woman asked Usher to move his car, but when he refused, the confrontation turned into a shouting match. She then physically attacked Usher before being removed by security guards. You can see the video of the event here:
