What is the difference between Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian? In a word: talent.

In a second word: taste.

Consider the contrasting fragrance ads released by these stars this week, as Kim promotes "Gold" with an accentuation of her only valuable asset, while Taylor goes a more innocent, magical route in the following campaign for "Wonderstruck."

  • Kim Kardashian Fragrance Ad
  • Taylor Swift Perfume Ad

Named after an "Enchanted" song, “Wonderstruck represents that magical feeling of promise and hope and intrigue," Swift says of the perfume, which comes out in October. "It was fascinating to learn that you could layer so many different scents to create a beautiful end result.”

So... would you prefer to smell like the sweat of Ray J? Or like teardrops on a guitar? Whose fragrance are you more likely to purchase?

There's a reason why Taylor Swift anchors the highest-grossing tour of the summer: fans never know what they will get on a nightly basis.

Sometimes, the young superstar covers Eminem. Other times, she's joined on stage by another teenage icon.

On Sunday evening, meanwhile, fans were treated to yet another surprise: following her appearance at MTV's Video Music Awards, Nicki Minaj popped over the Taylor's concert in Los Angeles and joined the artist on a rendition of "Super Bass." The crowd went wild and Swift demonstrated her versatility once again. Seriously, she rules.

Selena Gomez has also been covering this Minaj track on the road. Check out a couple examples of her rapping like Nicki HERE.

We're not sure where this rumor got started, but Taylor Swift put a rest to it during an appearance on Ryan Seacrest's radio program Tuesday: she is NOT dating Taylor Lautner.

"We’re incredibly close friends, but that’s not something that’s newsworthy, so people write other stuff. We’re just really good friends!”

Another topic that was addressed? Swift penning a memoir in the near future. Sorry, folks. That chatter is also nothing but talk. ("Not at all!" she said. "I haven’t even heard that rumor!")

Okay, but what about something that could actually take place? Such as a duet with Bruno Mars? A fan asked about that and Taylor sounded open to the possibility.

"He is amazing," she said. "We’ve talked about writing together and we think it would be an amazing collaboration.”

Most recently, of course, Mars teamed up with Eminem on "Lighters." Check out that official music video NOW.
