Taylor Swift writes songs about her exes as frequently as some people change their underwear. Swift's "Shake It Off" is rumored to be about both former flames Jake Gyllenhaal AND Harry Styles.

Or it's just an anthem about rising above and shaking off the haters. Either way, that's Taylor's M.O., but she isn't the only scathing songwriter in the game.

She's joined by a veritable legion of singers and bands who've made it their great pleasure to respond to their critics, enemies, and exes via song.

I Knew You Were Trouble - Taylor Swift
Oh, Taylor Swift! You just can't NOT write songs about exes! "I Knew You Were Trouble" is very publicly about One Direction's Harry Styles.

And then there are the musicians whose songs aren't about heartbreak at all but are instead tributes meant to help a friend through a tough time.

Songs in which others also find solace, like "Fix You" by Coldplay, which Chris Martin wrote for Gwyneth Paltrow, and which brought comfort to many facing tough times. 

We put together a playlist featuring 19 songs inspired by celebrities, some you know well and others you might not. Sit back, relax, and just push play!

In terms of winning the Internet, it's hard to beat a naked Justin Bieber selfie.

But Tom White may have accomplished the feat yesterday just by strolling around his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska.

Because look who the young man ran into there: Paul McCartney and Warren Buffett!

An excited White is giving a thumbs-up in the snapshot he posted to Instagram, which raises multiple questions:

  1. What were McCartney and Buffett discussing?
  2. Has there ever been two photograph subjects with a greater combined net worth?
  3. Did White need his parents to tell him who Paul McCartney and Warren Buffett are?

Perhaps you've heard, but Kim Kardashian married Kanye West this weekend.

No, really! Those kids just up and decided to get married with no fanfare at all.

We kid... a lot. But while we await word on just how much Kim and Kanye spent to tie the knot in Florence (we know how much they earned, approximately: $20 million), let's take a look at some of the most expensive wedding bills in celebrity history.

From athletes to singers to members of British Royalty, brides and grooms from a number of industries have often spared no expense in pledging their love and loyalty to their spouse for eternity.

Or, you know, for 72 days...

Prince William and Kate Middleton
In fairness, $32 million of the $34 million tab went to security. The rest of the money was spent on flowers ($800,000) food ($150,000) and champagne ($60,000), among other details.

Rock legend and former Beatle Paul McCartney has been hospitalized due to an unspecified illness, forcing him to call off several tour dates for the time being.

Upcoming concerts in Japan and Seoul will be likely be re-scheduled, said a spokesman for McCartney who added that "doctors have ordered Paul complete rest."

Following an earlier illness, McCartney was originally scheduled to begin touring again at the end of May, but his rep says, "Paul is still not feeling better and this cancelation is unavoidable."

At 71, Paul continues to perform and record new music almost constantly and some believe the singer's hectic schedule has finally caught up with him.

Recently, McCartney reunited with Ringo Starr at the 2014 Grammy Awards for a tribute to  the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' landmark performance on the Ed Sullivan Show.

Five decades after changing the music scene forever, The Beatles brought artists from a variety of genres together last night.

Exactly 50 years to the date after John Lennon, George Harrison, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr debuted on The Ed Sullivan Show, CBS aired "The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to The Beatles."

It featured such acts as Maroon 5, Stevie Wonder and Katy Perry, all paying tribute to the legendary band via covers of their greatest hits.

And the event concluded with the group's two surviving members, McCartney and Starr, singing a duet of "Hey Jude."

We have no idea why Justin Bieber wasn't invited to participate, but take in a number of memorable performances from the evening now:

Wake Paul McCartney up when the uproar over Miley Cyrus is finished.

In London this week to perform a gig sponsored by BBC Radio, the legendary singer was asked about the 20-year old Twerking sensation and essentially replied with a yawn.

He doesn't see what the big deal is.

"I don't understand why everyone's saying, 'Ooh she shouldn't do that!' It is nothing we haven't seen before," McCartney said of Miley. "I mean, she's a young girl and these days, in that kind of field that she's in, there's a lot of noise."

And Cyrus has clearly risen far above the noise with her controversial antics.

Paul McCartney helped stage a Nirvana reunion last night in NYC.

During the 12-12-12 concert to benefit Hurricane Sandy relief efforts in the region, McCartney recalled how "recently some guys asked me to jam with them."

Those guys turned out to be Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic.

"The penny finally dropped that I was in the middle of a Nirvana reunion" he said before Nirvana's first-ever live performance of "Cut Me Some Slack" with Paul on vocals.

Watch their performance below!

Courtney Love, of course, was not a fan of McCartney standing in for Kurt Cobain ... although she said, "if it were John [Lennon] it would have been cool."

Come on. It's still kind of cool.
