Now the stories are starting to come full circle.

Taylor Swift had one hell of a 2015!
With the mega success of her Grammy-winning album 1989, and her epically lucrative 1989 World Tour, the New Romantics songstress was the top earner of last year!
Swifty absolutely slayed the competition, earning a whopping $73.5 million largely thanks to her tour — which cashed in $61.7M for her 2015 haul.
But other factors like album sales and streaming sales helped — and even Ryan Adams' 1989 cover album helped make the pop star the top earner of publishing royalties!
While Swift's success isn't that surprising, the rest of the top ten earners may be…
Coming in at number 2 is
Well this could've been super awkward!
Apparently, the blonde beauties were dancing "full on" in an off-limits section during his performance. Uh oh!
During an interview with Smallzy for Nova 96.9, the music producer dished:
As if we needed another reason to love her!
Now, the Good For You songstress is kicking off her highly-anticipated Revival Tour on Friday in Las Vegas and will be donating proceeds from her concerts to lupus research!
According to Selly's rep, proceeds from each ticket sold will go to the Alliance for Lupus Research, a national voluntary health organization on a mission to find better treatments for and prevent the autoimmune disease.
As for the concert itself, the pop star said she's "excited" for fans to hear the new version of Come and Get It that she will perform during the concert — but noted the show will mainly focus on her latest album. She said:
"We just sprinkled in only three old songs, so it's just the new material, which is how I wanted it to be. We may add in a few things as well, surprise-wise, but we'll figure it out."
Could she be hitting at a surprise stage cameos by her celeb-friends like Taylor Swift!? We can only hope so!
Either way, we cannot wait for Selena's Revival tour!

Of course, it also doesn't hurt that the teen starlet is super interesting and insightful, shedding even more light on those comments she made after Kim Kardashian West posted her nude, but censored selfie, for one.
Speaking with Glamour for their June issue, CGM again revealed exactly why she spoke out in the first place:
"I had just gotten off a plane from South Korea, I was incredibly jet-lagged, and I couldn't take one more thing. I saw that photo, and I had to say something. That picture wasn't linked to body confidence. It wasn't a #BodyConfidence or #LoveWhoYouAre. It was done in a slightly voyeuristic light, which I felt was a little inappropriate for young women to see. … I would hate for young women to feel they need to post certain photos in order to gain likes, retweets, favorites, and male attention.… I wasn't slut-shaming. It's not about body shaming."
And the 19-year-old continued, sharing her reaction when the reality TV starlet called her out:
We all know that Kanye West isn't afraid to call out his fellow celebs.
The hitmaker also like to use lyrics in his songs and verses to go after A-listers!
Well, all that *might* change since Yeezy recently said he now only wants to send "positive" vibes into the universe. So since we may never get a diss from him again (lololol, right?), let us know which diss is the best by upvoting or downvoting (below)!
Well during the rapper's interview on Steve Harvey's radio show yesterday — the same one where he talked about people disrespecting his wife Kim Kardashian West and apologized to Wiz Khalifa — he also talked more about that awkward moment with Taylor.
The Life of Pablo artist dished to Harvey, saying:
Where was our invite?
For the pic (above), the blonde beauty wrote:
"After the after party is.. Well..This. @haimtheband"
We want to go to there. Of course, this hangout session occurred after the A-lister was done dancing up a storm with Tom Hiddleston at the gala's official after party at the Boom Boom Room atop the Standard Hotel.
While we adored Tay Tay's Louis Vuitton number, this white unicorn onesie might be our favorite ensemble of hers from the celeb-filled evening.
We can only imagine that the Blank Space singer simply wanted to get comfortable after being wiped out from her co-hosting duties for the fashion gala. Still, T. Swizzle and her squad members had some competition as Sarah Hyland and Jennifer Lopez also had an animal onesie party (below) with the cast of the Dirty Dancing reboot.
