Lady Gaga Video Scrapped Due to Involvement of "Sexual Predators" R. Kelly & Terry Richardson?

Last year, Lady Gaga promised fans a video for "Do What U Want," her duet with R.

Taylor Swift Welcomes New Kitten Named After "Law & Order: SVU" Character

Taylor Swift's beloved cat Meredith is named after Ellen Pompeo's character, Meredith Grey, on ABC's Grey's Anatomy.  And it seems she's continuing the tradition of naming her pets after characters on TV dramas. Taylor has posted a photo of herself with a tiny white kitten on her lap.  It's captioned, "Meet Olivia Benson."  That's the name of Mariska Hargitay's character on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. The kitten appears to be the same breed as Meredith: a Scottish Fold, which has unusually-shaped folded-down ears.
