That Taylor Swift Fantasy Life Can Be Yours

buzzfeed.com — A little more than halfway through Taylor Swift's sold-out concert Saturday night at the Staples Center in L.A. - after she had sung a duet of her 2008 song "White Horse" with Orange Is The New Black star Uzo Aduba but before she brought Chris Rock, Matt LeBlanc, and model Sean O'Pry to "walk the runway" while she sang "Style" - she stood in front of the 15,000-person crowd and had a little chat with everyone there.

TODO: 'Six Feet Under' Box Set

gawker.com — TODO is one daily thing recommended for you, by us. Being late to the party on good television shows has its pluses and minuses. On the one hand, you don't have to participate in annoying office chatter about what happened on, say, Deadwood the night before.

Meet The Most Honest Teenage Girl You’ve Ever Seen On Screen

buzzfeed.com — The moment I knew that Diary of a Teenage Girl was going to speak to me on a deep, important, possibly spiritual level came right at the opening scene, when 15-year-old Minnie Goetze (Bel Powley) walks through a San Francisco park, backpack on her shoulders, bell bottoms a-flaring, her eyes shining, and says, in an exuberant, satisfied voiceover, "I had sex today."

37 Surefire Signs You Went To College In The '90s

buzzfeed.com — Japan marks the 70th anniversary of the world's first atomic bombing over Hiroshima. A suicide bomber killed at least 13 people during prayer time at a mosque in Saudi Arabia. London commuters face severe delays as a union strike over pay and conditions shut down the entire Tube network.

¿Más de 30 y soltero? Lo mejor que te puede pasar es Tinder

buzzfeed.com — Tinder es "estúpido y dañino, no hace más que entorpecer las relaciones sentimentales". También es "una fábrica, y no puedes pretender algo romántico ni ahí". Y no olvidemos que " la consecuencia adulta de vivir con nuestras propias elecciones casi no existe cuando la mejor opción está a una compatibilidad de distancia."

If You're Over 30 And Single, You Should Be Using Tinder

buzzfeed.com — Tinder is " stupid and harmful because it only makes romantic human connection harder." It is also " a factory and you shouldn't pretend it's even vaguely romantic." And let's not forget that " the adult consequence of living with one's decisions doesn't really exist when the next best thing is only a swipe away."

Michael Keaton's Son Wrote "Talk Dirty" And "Heart Attack"

buzzfeed.com — Sean's last name is Douglas because that's Keaton's real last name. (He uses Keaton because Michael Douglas was already famous when he started acting.) The song was written for singer Nikki Williams, but Williams' label didn't like it. After Lovato recorded it, "Heart Attack" went double platinum. 3.

Georgette Mosbacher Observes Christopher Buckley

gawker.com — Georgette Mosbacher's Fifth Avenue apartment is directly across from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and from the huge windows of her living room-where there is a life-size drawing of herself hanging above the baby grand piano, and fur throws on two settees across the room, and trinkets (decorative knives, feathers, paperweights, commemorative seals) arranged on a console, and photographs and chandeliers and Oriental rugs and velvet and mirrors-one can watch the small figures milling about on the steps of the museum.
