Your first listen to Taylor Swift being Punk’d

Let's all play a game, shall we?  Take a listen to the video above and try and figure out just what Taylor Swift said that MTV had to bleep out. 

My guess is she called Justin Bieber a little sh*t or something equally colorful, but you be the judge.  

As I told you last year, MTV is bringing the classic prank show "Punk'd" back to life and Taylor was set to appear on one of the very first episodes. Now we get our first glimpse, albeit a nonvisual one, of the prank The Biebs pulled on Taylor.

It does mention boats, fireworks, and Taylor ruining the best night of someone's life, so it appears that the rumor that Justin made Taylor think she had ruined someone's wedding is true.  

HollywoodLife.com had a good write up of what they were told the prank entailed:

“Justin called Taylor Swift and asked if she would come over to his beach house and help him write a song for Selena Gomez. Taylor agreed and even asked him to open for her at her show that night at the Staples Center!” an insider tells Hollywoodlife.com.

Once Justin was able to lure Taylor to his home, he convinced her to help him set off some fireworks in his backyard. But their fun time goes awry when the fireworks set off a fire on a boat off -shore. The boat was full of actors (unbeknownst to Swift) who had to jump off and swim to shore. To make things worse, the people on the boat were having a “wedding,” so the bride, groom, and priest in full wedding-attire swim up and start accusing Taylor of ruining their special day!

“Taylor didn’t start crying but was very freaked out and was like ‘OMG IM SO SORRY’! Justin was trying to downplay the situation, When he said she’d been punk’d she started laughing and said, ‘How could you do this to me?!’” the source reveals.

According to MTV, Punk'd is set to roar back to life March 29th.  

Tim McGraw shows off some mad hand skills

We all know that Tim McGraw's talented in the vocal department and pretty skilled in the acting department, but did you know he's also got some skills when it comes to juggling?  

Yep, it's true. Tim posted a video on his YouTube channel today showing off some circus skills while taking a break from rehearsals in Australia. The cool thing is, if you listen carefully you can hear Faith in the background belting out a tune, sounding as awesome as ever.

Tim and Faith's joint Australian tour launches March 14 at the Burswood Dome in Perth. Ticket information is available here

I'm totally a child of the 80s and so yes, I'm allowed to occasionally throw out bitchin' when describing something really cool.  

Like, say, how Rascal Flatts presented Sara Evans with a Jeep as a thank you for having toured with them. 

Sara posted on her Facebook last week:  

Rascal Flatts gave me a JEEP today as a gift from the tour! A crimson Alabama Jeep! I am in shock! They are SO sweet! I LOVE them!

Some girls have all the luck.

higher certification by the Recording Industry Association of America.

“The Trouble With Girls” is his second consecutive gold single, following his debut single, “I Love You This Big.” His Mercury Nashville/19 Recordings/ Interscope debut album, Clear As Day, was certified platinum for sales of more than 1 million units in just three months. Clear As Day debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 and Top Country Albums charts, making him the youngest man in history to open at the top of the all-genre chart with a debut

release. It also garnered the highest sales of any country solo album released last year and held the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart for six weeks.  

“Having the first single go gold was crazy, but having the second single go gold and to see the response it is getting in our shows is incredible,” he says. “I wish I could come up with
better words than ‘wild’ and ‘incredible,’ because this is really special.

“It’s a huge honor. I’m glad the single is doing well and I’m looking forward to keep singing it on the road.”
