taylor swift shake it off meaning takedown culture friends interview

Taylor Swift is tired of the haters, and she found the perfect way to deal with them– Shake It Off!

With the release of her new song, Swifty's smiling face graced Good Morning America to share her excitement and the backstory of how the song came to be.

She says:

"The message in the song is a problem we all deal with, an issue we deal with on a daily basis — we don't live just in a celebrity takedown culture, we live in a takedown culture. People will find anything about you and twist it to where it's weird or wrong or annoying or strange or bad. You have to not only live your life in spite of people who don't understand you, you have to have more fun than they do."

Swifty is one quick learner! So how does she apply this in her daily life? She looks for the exact opposite of haters to hang out with! She says:

nicki minaj grinding on drake anaconda

This is gonna be one SMOKIN' hot music video!

And it's surely gonna get seXXXy rumors started up about Nicki Minaj and Drake!

Why's that??? Because Nicki is grinding all up on Drake for her new music video for Anaconda premiering on Wednesday.

The booty-ful rapper released preview pics of her music video on Instagram, and it's surely got tongues wagging!

Nicki has her famously round derriere all over Drake, although we really think Drake should look a little happier to have all that goodness in his face. We had a feeling he was in this video, but we didn't know this is what they'd be doing together!

Based on these previews AND the actual song, we can't WAIT to see what the music video will unleash…

…other than a whole lotta anacondas! LOLz!

Ch-ch-check out all the preview pics, including one of Nicki's hand on Drake's junk (above)!

Will Smith still does Summertime better than anyone else!

The Independence Day star proved it over the weekend by jumping onstage with former partner DJ Jazzy Jeff at a Palms pool party in Las Vegas to perform some classic hits!

Of course, Will is a little older and wiser. His son Trey Smith, AKA DJ AcE, was on hand spinning as well.

BUT Will showed that he was still young at heart. And by heart we mean chest. Because when he whipped his shirt off, DAYUM man has some nice pecs!
