As everyone in the free world now knows, Taylor Swift has learned to shake off the haters. All the way to number-one, in fact.

But there's one fellow artist Swift admits she can't just forget about, so much so that she penned the upcoming song "Bad Blood" about this unnamed individual.

"For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, 'Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'" Swift told Rolling Stone.

"[Then last year] she did something so horrible. I was like, 'Oh, we're just straight-up enemies.' And it wasn't even about a guy!"

This past weekend, THE Ohio State University lost by two touchdowns to Virginia Tech in football, but at least the Buckeyes' marching band was a big winner.

Known for their elaborate and incredible performances, the students lived up to expectations with a tribute to many TV favorites through the years.

See how many references you can spot in the following video ...

The band honored everything from The Simpsons and The Addams Family to Batman (remember when that was a show?) and the M*A*S*H series finale.

Blending music with visuals, their creativity is boundless.

They even got creative with I Dream of Jeannie (smoke included) and Dunder Mifflin was representing as well in a picture perfect The Office logo.

What really got the crowd going, though?

The Game of Thrones theme song.

Wait... who's that kissing Justin Timberlake?

And who are those women dressed in drag?

And which True Blood star is donning an eye patch alongside Lady Gaga?

While the recent music videos that have garnered the most attention have involved Nicki Minaj Twerking and/or Miley Cyrus naked on a wrecking ball, it's easy to forget that a number of non-singers have made cameos in a number of popular videos over the years.

Such as, yes, Kristen Stewart in drag. Or Jake Gyllenhaal as a tennis player.

Cycle through the following music video cameos and ask yourself: What was that star doing there?!?

Alexander Skarsgard
Who knew Alexander Skarsgard and Lady Gaga were pals?!? The former showed up in the latter's video for "Paparazzi."

Deadmau5 is being taken to court by a much bigger cartoon mau5.

Disney is apparently ready to challenge him in court after the conglomerate determined that the DJ's logo is too similar to its (trademarked) Mickey Mouse ears.

We can't decide if we're shocked at this news or shocked that it's taken them this long to file, but either way, the electronic music star is vowing to fight it out.

"Landed home to some interesting news," he tweeted this week. "Looks like Disney officially just filed in opposition of my trademark … lawyer up Mickey."

"Disney thinks you might confuse an established electronic musician/performer with a cartoon mouse," he went on. "That's how stupid they think you are."

Deadmau5 (pronounced "dead mouse"), real name Joel Zimmerman, uses oversized headpieces with rounded ears, while doing his thing live around the world.

In a statement to E! News, Deadmau5 attorney Dina LaPolt further elaborated on the matter, claiming he has his own likeness trademarked, thankyouverymuch:

Sadly, with the passage of Labor Day, the summer of 2014 is unofficially at an end.

But Iggy Azalea is from Australia - where the seasons are reversed and thirsty stars can go from Britney Spears wannabes to gangsta-ass "murder business" rappers overnight.

So while the rest of us mourn the end of beach season, Iggy is celebrating the start of her reign as Queen of the Charts.

Yes, after months of breaking sales records, "Fancy" is officially the best-selling song of the summer. Take that, rappers who write their own songs!

We kid Iggy because we love her. Sure there are those pesky rumors that T.I. ghostwrites all of Iggy's rhymes, but if we lived in a world where only songwriters became stars then you would've never heard the word "Bieber," and who would want that?

Maybe it's best if you don't answer that question.
