This PR News department is called Water Cooler, so it’s appropriate that the first Cooler of the week examine what people are discussing around the office water cooler. Today that’s probably something about rapper/media mogul/Kim Kardashian husband Kanye West’s alleged debt of $53 million.
Or perhaps it’s Grammy-winning singer Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech during the Grammys, where the 26-year-old singer/songwriter blasted 38-year-old West—yes, him again—for claiming to have made her famous. “I want to say to all the young women out there: There are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame,” Swift noted during an acceptance speech for her Album of the Year Grammy. “But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you’re going, you’ll look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there. And that will be the greatest feeling in the world.”
There’s more bad blood between West and Swift. Read more here at PR News.
