Celebrities from around the world and around every industry came together last night for Stand Up to Cancer, a telethon on every major network that was dedicated to raising money to combat this terrible disease.

Among the highlights, Taylor Swift debuted the track "Ronan," a single she wrote with Maya Thompson, whose 3-year-old son Ronan died of neuroblastoma last year. Watch the beautiful acoustic performance now:

Elsewhere:

  • Children diagnosed with cancer spoke on their illness, including three-year old Justin Miller who said: "I don't really think about me passing away. But if I do, I'm taking my Legos with me."
  • Alicia Keys, Coldplay and Tim McGraw all performed.
  • Katie Couric, who lost her husband to colon cancer, took a swipe at Chelsea Handler while espousing preventative screening and colon health and talking about a cleanse that "comes in vanilla, strawberry... I think Chelsea Handler even has one that's vodka-flavored. It is not the tastiest beverage in the world, but it is a small price to pay for potentially saving your own life."
  • Robert Pattinson urged viewers to donate and support cancer research.

It's not too late, readers. Visit the American Cancer Society website and give what you can right now.

Two talented singers. Two different styles.

Before Taylor Swift's stage-diving VMA performance, she walked the red carpet in a sleek white J. Mendel pantsuit and classic red lips at the annual MTV gala.

Once again last night, Taylor Swift made it clear to the subject of her latest single: We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.

Like, ever.

The wildly popular singer closed the MTV Video Music Awards with a fun version of her new smash, dressing like Waldo and prancing around on stage while the crowd sang along to the chorus. She then gave attendees in the front row an unexpected surprise:

Swift stage dove in to their arms!

Watch the rendition below, skip to around the 4:20 mark for the crowd surf and don't forget to also check out the Frank Ocean performance from the event. It was terrific.

Forget Julian Castro's takedown of Mitt Romney. And ignore Michelle Obama's passionate defense of her husband for a moment.

The big news coming out of the Democratic National Convention is that former Congressman Patrick Kennedy is a big fan of Taylor Swift!

  • Patrick Kennedy Picture
  • The Taylor Swift Heart

TMZ caught up with the politician yesterday and asked about the singer because Swift is dating Robert Kennedy Jr.'s son, Conor Kennedy. How does Patrick Kennedy feel about this relationship?

"We love Taylor Swift," he replied. "She's been a great friend and we're happy for Conor... If she wants to be in the family, she's already a part of it."

By some accounts, she most definitely does want to be. Insiders claim Swift and Kennedy may elope, with those close to Taylor saying they've never seen her this smitten over a boyfriend so quickly.

That ought to make the inevitable breakup song all the more interesting!

Taylor Swift may croon about a love lost - and then found... and then lost again - in her latest hit track, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together."

But the wildly popular singer is anything but sad about the split in that single's just-released full-length music video.

Watch below as Swift makes multiple costume changes and parties it up with friends, all of whom sing along to the chorus and seem quite pleased their pal has left the mystery subject of the song behind.

In real life, of course, Taylor has a different reason to celebrate: she's totally in love with Conor Kennedy!

Sources even claim marriage may be in this young couple's future. EEK!

Best. Breakup. Ever.

Taylor Swift is known for penning songs about her personal life, specifically any breakup that has left her heartbroken.

But the singer is reportedly so taken with Conor Kennedy that members of his famous family don't believe Swift will ever write a track about her new 18-year old boyfriend. EVER.

That's right: the Kennedys could see this pair getting married.

Taylor Swift Down Under

I am never, ever, ever splitting with Conor Kennedy!

Swift and Kennedy just started dating in July, but insiders tell The New York Post that "things have become so serious between them so fast that no one in Hyannis Port would be surprised if they eloped.”

Taylor left her man last week in order to take care of some business in Nashville, but sources say she missed Conor so much that she sent a private plane to bring him to her in Tennessee. Adds the mole:

"They are inseparable and are all over each other all the time... She always falls very hard and becomes very intense very quickly, and this time is no exception. In fact, she seems to have fallen even harder.”

As a sure sign that the relationship is most definitely serious, Taylor accompanied Conor to his mother's grave last week.

It's official: Taylor Swift is funnier, cooler and a much better actress than Kim Kardashian.

The wildly popular singer anchors a new commercial for the MTV Video Music Awards, appearing opposite host Kevin Hart and poking fun at the fact that she writes so many songs about ex-boyfriends.

It's pretty funny and Swift is pretty terrific in it, which is a stark contrast to the wooden Kardashian and the lack of humor in her VMA ad from a couple weeks ago. Check it out now:

Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy took a big, sad step in their relationship on Sunday.

The singer accompanied her 18-year old boyfriend and various family members to the Cape Cod cemetery where Mary Richardson Kennedy is buried. She tragically committed suicide in May.

Conor's mother had been separated from his father at the time of her death and was reportedly suffering from substance abuse problems.

Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy Pay Respects

According to Entertainment Tonight, Swift and Kennedy - who have been dating for two months - attended church and then spent close to a half hour at Mary's grave, which is located in Hynannis near the Kennedy compound.

Taylor has actually purchased a home directly across the street from Ethel Kennedy, Conor's grandmother and a woman who has said the famous family would only be too lucky if Swift ever joined them in an official capacity.

It's very early, but it certainly appears is if things could be heading in that direction.
