The Water Cooler: Calvin Harris defends his massage; the champagne bong is a thing
Don't reduce your small talk to just the weather.
TSwift, Calvin Harris part ways
Taylor Swift could have another blank space to fill after rumors surfaced about her calling it quits with hunky DJ boyfriend Calvin Harris. And it wasn't a happy ending, at least for Tay. She apparently gave the producer the boot after finding out he went to a Thai massage parlor that — according to Yelp — gives the "best happy endings" in Hollywood. The Feels So Close artist apparently spent two hours in the parlor. Calvin Harris defended himself on Twitter, saying "It's not going to be a 'happy ending' for everyone I sue for defamation of character …" But what's a multimillion dollar producer doing in a $40/hour joint on Sunset, anyway? We're anticipating a full album to follow and perhaps it's only fitting that the 1989 U.S. tour ends Oct. 31 in Tampa, which has had its share of questionable massage parlors. In the meantime, keep these T-Swift puns in your back pocket for good water cooler banter at work:
- "I thought this was gonna be forever, it's just gone down in flames."
- "Calvin Harris should have gone places he won't be found."
- "I didn't think Calvin Harris had it in him. Not in my Wildest Dreams."
Pharrell for Hillary, anti games
Hillary Clinton must be pretty Happy. Music producer and judge on the Voice Pharrell Williams went on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and endorsed Clinton for the White House. "People are like, 'Okay, we need a president that we can play Scrabble and Celebrity with,' but that's not who's gonna solve your problems," he said. You're right Pharrell, but what about Battleship?
Conan goes to Armenia
Conan O'Brien is going where no American late-night host has filmed before. Take that, Fallon. The host is currently traveling to film in Armenia with his Armenian assistant, Sona Movsesian.
FACTOID FOR YOU: This won't be the first unscripted, on location episode. The TV personality recently traveled to Cuba in the spring, and became the first late-night host to do so in 50 years.
Champagne bong is a thing
The champagne bong really exists. The champagne glass meets bong combination, a "Chambong," lets you guzzle the bubbly as fast as possible, while still remaining "classy." Which is sort of true if you compare it to a homemade beer bong. According to the website, the $25 flute will "make you friends. Land you that big promotion. Fill the void. Mic drop. Walk off home run. Pick up mic. Crush karaoke. Make your parents proud." Chambong responsibly.
