Taylor Swift has been tapped as the first-ever global ambassador for…

This year’s RSD will take place on April 23, with the official list of this year’s RSD releases coming soon, including an as-yet-unannounced title from Swift.

“I’m very proud to be this year’s Ambassador for Record Store Day,” Swift said in a statement.

“The places where we go to browse and explore and discover music new and old have always been sacred to me. Record stores are so important because they help to perpetuate and foster music-loving as a passion.

They create settings for live events. They employ people who adore music thoroughly and purely.

Those people and shops have had a rough few years and we need to support these small businesses more now than ever to make sure they can stay alive, stay eccentric, and stay individual. It’s been a true joy for me to watch vinyl sales grow in the past few years and we, the artists, have the fans to thank for this pleasant surprise. Happy Record Store Day, everyone! Stay safe out there.”

The announcement noted that during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, Swift “took her support a step further, directing fans to record stores around the country where they could find autographed CDs, bringing much needed traffic and attention at a time of business uncertainty. She also then made a quiet, thoughtful gesture to a store she knows well, Grimey’s New and Pre-loved Music in Nashville.”

“We’re thrilled to learn that Taylor Swift is our 2022 Record Store Day Ambassador!” said Anna Lundy and Doyle Davis of Grimey’s in a statement.

“Swift has shown her love and support for independent record stores by not only supporting our shop specifically during the dark, early days of the pandemic, when she directly donated to help us support our staff, but also by steering her eager, excited, and dedicated fans to independent record stores, places that many of them visited for the first time while in search of her signed CDs.

As Swift has grown as an artist, we’ve watched her fans grow with her and have been delighted to see her taking control of her recordings and working with musicians like Jack Antonoff and Aaron Dessner, artists whose music has resonated in shops like ours for years. We can’t think of a better choice for RSD Ambassador for 2022!”

Swift has supported RSD a number of times in the past, offering up special versions of her albums 1989 and Speak Now, and a 7″ vinyl single version of Haim’s single “Gasoline.”

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez Have First fought for refusing to let her visit him on set

Are Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez struggling to make long-distance work? One tabloid claims the couple has hit a rough patch. Let’s take a look at Bennifer’s first supposed fight since reuniting.

The most recent edition of the Globe reports Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s rekindled romance has hit a snag.

Since the couple is currently working on different projects in separate countries, Lopez is desperate to visit her beau.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez Have First fought for refusing to let her…

But Affleck “is telling her it will do them good to have a little time apart and he needs to immerse himself into this new movie, which Jennifer’s not taken well at all,” according to the tabloid’s inside source. “She worries he’s pushing her away.”
Lopez reportedly wanted to set up a house in Texas, where Affleck is currently working, for them to spend time together while she visits.

Affleck, however, is concerned with taking back the power in their relationship. “Ben’s not backing out, but he doesn’t want to be pushed around and dictated to like her last boyfriend Alex Rodriguez,” the tipster dishes. But Lopez sees things differently.

“Jennifer wants to marry Ben,” the snitch confides. “She thought they were headed in that direction. Now he seems distracted and she’s freaking out!

She’s getting clingy and he’s moping around, but this argument won’t be resolved until she gets her way.”

Colin Jost and Scarlett Johansson Allegedly Nearly Broke Up Over His Supposed Insecurity

Last May, we confronted a story from Woman’s Day alleging that Colin Jost and Scarlett Johansson’s relationship was on thin ice. The report claimed Jost and Johansson were considering calling off their then-impending wedding because of Jost’s jealousy issues. Apparently, the “Weekend Update” anchor was “funny on stage, but miserable as hell when the show’s over,” an insider confided.

“[He’s] incredibly insecure about her past relationships… Scarlett feels like he’s a different person these days.

” The outlet then took the opportunity to go through the list of Johansson’s famous exes that Jost was so intimidated by, the likes of which included Ryan Reynolds and Jack Antonoff

It seems that as more time passes, stories like these just seem more and more ridiculous. This magazine clearly was playing on the anticipation of Jost and Johansson’s wedding—immediately making their fans fear that they could call it all off.

But looking back at this story, we’re able to see just how wrong it was. About a month after this story was published, Jost and Johansson got married in a small, private ceremony at their home. Knowing this a year ago, it was obvious that the tabloid didn’t really have a clue about Jost and Johansson’s relationship.

Scarlett Johansson Lawyer John Berlinski Moves as a partner to Bird Marella

“John is not just an exceptional talent with a unique understanding of the entertainment business, he is a fantastic person,” Bird Marella Managing Partner Paul Chan said. “I have worked both with and against John over the years. He is an excellent lawyer and is a great addition to Bird Marella’s entertainment practice,” added Entertainment Group partner Ron Nessim. “We are excited to welcome him to our team.”

Previously the SVP & Head of West Coast Television Litigation at NBCUniversal, Berlinski joined Donald Trump’s one-time favorite law firm back in October 2013.

Scarlett Johansson Lawyer John Berlinski Moves as a partner to Bird Marella

As partner and head of Kasowitz Benson Torres’s Entertainment Division, the LA-based Berlinski was retained by Bones stars Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz, plus EP and author Kathy Reichs over six years ago in the talent’s bitter dust-up with Fox over $100 million in alleged lost profits from the long-running series. Following a roller coaster ride in the courts, the matter, instigated by Bones EP Barry Josephson in late November 2015, was suddenly wrapped up in September 2019 in a confidential agreement from the now Disney-owned entity. No figures were made public at the time, but I heard there was a “substantial” payout to the happy actors and Reichs.

After over eight years with Kasowitz Benson Torres LLP, litigator John Berlinski has joined Bird Marella as a partner.

Feared in studio circles for his take-no-prisoners representation for the likes of Scarlett Johansson in her quickly settled and lucrative Black Widow dispute with Disney last year, profit participation maestro Berlinski has settled into the 41-year old firm’s Entertainment Group.

 

“Bird Marella’s deep bench of experienced entertainment lawyers was a huge draw to the practice,” says Berlinski of his new digs. “I’m excited to apply the knowledge and skills that I’ve honed over the past two decades to support the firm’s well-earned reputation as one of the country’s top entertainment and trial boutiques.”
