TAYLOR SWIFT’S EX UPSET ON SONG-WRITING DRAMA

Calvin Harris has a question for Taylor Swift: if you’re so happy with your new guy, why are you focusing so much effort on making MY life miserable? Harris is upset because Swift came out with the news that she co-wrote Harris’ latest hit song. She says she used an alias to co-write “This is What You Came For” — a song Harris did featuring Rihanna.


Harris lit into Swift on Twitter, saying she broke a promise to keep the collaboration secret. Harris and Swift announced last month that they’d broken up. And now, Harris says Swift is trying to “bury” him like she did Katy Perry. It’s believed Swift’s hit “Bad Blood” is about the falling out between the two musicians.

STALONE PRAISES ‘ROCKY’ TODDLER’S VIRAL WORKOUT

A video of a toddler mimicking Sylvester Stallone’s moves while watching a clip of the training montage in “Rocky II” has earned kudos from the actor himself.

The video posted to Facebook by an Ohio dad shows the diaper-clad boy doing one-armed pushups and pretending to work a speed bag, chop wood and lift weights in sync with the big screen boxer.

The video has received millions of views online. Stallone reposted it to Instagram on Wednesday with a note saying “this kid makes me so proud.” He jokes that he may have to fight the boy in “Rocky 10.”

Stallone earned a Golden Globe earlier this year for reprising his most famous role as Rocky Balboa in last year’s “Creed.”
