In honor of Sunday’s Grammy Awards, Gossip Cop has compiled a directory of false tabloid stories we’ve debunked about some of the nominees. Here are five wrong rumors regarding the 2020 Grammy contenders – including Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Ariana Grande, Beyonce and Miranda Lambert.
Taylor Swift Didn’t Fire Everyone Taylor Swift is nominated for three Grammys this coming year, including Song Of The Year for “Lover.” It’s been a big year to the pop star which means the tabloids are already quick to invent phony stories about her. Just a couple of weeks ago, Gossip Cop busted the National Enquirer for the false report alleging Swift was firing her team for letting her join Cats. The ridiculous article was patently false. While the reviews and box office for that movie musical are already disappointing, Swift isn’t getting the blame. Her song from your film, “Beautiful Ghosts,” was nominated for the Golden Globe, and it’s the only major nomination the film has gotten. The singer is not firing her entire management staff, not at all.
Blake Shelton And Gwen Stefani Are Not Engaged Blake Shelton, that is nominated for Best Country Solo Performance for his song “God’s Country,” is a frequent tabloid target because of his relationship with Gwen Stefani. Gossip Cop called out OK! Australia earlier this year for reporting that Stefani and Shelton were “finally engaged” and organising a $3 million wedding. The tabloid tried to make its story seem real by weighing it down with lots of details concerning the fantasy wedding, however the one detail it lacked was reality. Shelton states before that you just find get any real news about relationship inside the tabloids. The country star told Entertainment Tonight when he gets engaged, he’d never “break good news in most of the grocery store trash magazines.”
Miranda Lambert Is Not Pregnant Miranda Lambert is nominated by 50 percent categories, a solo nomination for “It All Comes Out inside the Wash” along with a nomination with your ex group Pistol Annies for Best Country Album. Lambert is also often maligned in the tabloids with manufactured stories. Gossip Cop busted the National Enquirer this past year for claiming Lambert got pregnant so as to save her marriage with Brendan McLoughlin. Judging in the affectionate photos posted for the singer’s Instagram page, there is absolutely no trouble in their relationship. Besides, if Lambert was as far along in their pregnancy because outlet claimed, she’d be visibly pregnant – which she’s not.
Ariana Grande Did Not Warn Margaret Qualley About Pete Davidson Ariana Grande, nominee for five separate awards — Best Pop Vocal Album, Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance — isn’t any stranger towards the tabloids either. This past September, Life & Style falsely reported that Grande was warning actress Margaret Qualley not to date her ex-fiance, Pete Davidson. The magazine said Grande “felt it turned out her responsibility as a feminist” to caution Qualley in regards to the Saturday Night Live star. Gossip Cop checked in with a resource close to the situation, who told us that Grande hadn’t issued any warnings about her ex. In fact, Grande’s asked her fans to help remedy the comedian with respect and kindness, noting that they still deeply likes you him and wishes him the top. The rumor made no sense.
Beyonce Did Not Ignore Kim Kardashian Beyonce, nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album, Best Pop Solo Performance, Best Song Written for Visual Media and Best Music Film, is frequently roped into phony tabloid stories. Just recently, Life & Style claimed the singer gave Kim Kardashian the cold shoulder during Sean “Diddy” Combs’ birthday party. The outlet’s anonymous source said the singer “ignored Kim the complete night” despite Jay-Z and Kanye West being buddy-buddy the complete party. However, more reliable celebrity outlets reported that two seemed thrilled to see each other at a holiday party days following your supposed “cold shoulder” incident. The tabloid created the rumor since the two women weren’t photographed alongside the other. The tension was completely fictional.
