Taylor Swift Earned HOW MUCH in 2012?!

Taylor Swift is apparently scared of ending up alone and in a bathtub.

But based on the singer’s take-home in 2012, she really has nothing to worry about. Swift will be able to buy as many trophy husbands as her heart desires.

Parade has come out with its annual What People Earn issue, and it lists Swift as the third-highest paid woman in entertainment (behind Oprah and Britney Spears) She made $57 million last year.

Only Justin Bieber ($55 million) comes close to T. Swizzle, while she totally out-earns such major names as Anne Hathaway ($10 million).

One more salary of note? The Thompsons from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo banked $500,000 in 2012.

Oprah’s attempt to promote the Microsoft Surface backfires!

2012-11-19_10h08_01

Oprah is out plugging the Surface for Microsoft, stating that she is buying several of the devices as gifts.

However, in sending out that specific tweet, she, or whoever was running her account that day, used a somewhat embarrassing service to communicate.

As we, and others have noticed:

Yes, this is amateur hour.

Oprah have legions of fans, making her an effective marketing channel for Microsoft. Except for when the narrative around her promotion is tossed on its head by a foolish, and utterly avoidable mistake.

That shows why people who manage social media accounts should be tech savvy, not just marketing savvy.

Bobbi Kristina breaks her silence .

Oprah and Bobbi

One month after the death of her mother, Bobbi Kristina Brown sat down with Oprah Winfrey for a revealing chat on the latter’s network Sunday night.

After greeting the host with a hug, the 19-year old told viewers she was “doing okay,” adding: “I’m getting through it. I’m doing as good as I possibly can… just trying to keep going.”

Bobbi, of course, has been the subject of many rumors and headlines since her mom passed away on February 12, with drug problems allegedly surfacing again and family members supposedly pushing her to check in to rehab.

But the teenager said she’s doing her best to hang in there, and that she receives help on a daily basis from her mom.

“I can hear her voice in spirit talking to me, ‘Keep talking to me. I got you.’ She’s always with me,” Bobbi said. “I can always feel her. I can always feel her with me. She always asked me, ‘Do you need me?’ And I caught myself, out of nowhere, I didn’t even know I said it, I said, ‘I’ll always need you.'”

Bobbi also recounted the final day she spent with Whitney, saying:

“It was so early in the morning. I went to go get her and I said, ‘Come lay with me.’ She stayed with me all night and all day. She was just rubbing my head and holding me. I just slept in her arms.”

What does the future hold for Brown? She isn’t sure exactly, but something in the entertainment realm perhaps. Some acting, some dancing, Bobbi speculated, concluding:

“I have to carry on the legacy.”
