HollywoodLife alleges it has “exclusive” information about how Taylor Swift is “thrilled” with the success of her new song and music video for “Look What You Made Me Do,” but the story is entirely made-up. Gossip Cop can expose the webloid for manufacturing the claim. We’re told, once again, no one close to the singer is talking to that site.

As Gossip Cop reported, Swift’s music video for “Look What You Made Me Do” premiered at Sunday’s MTV Music Video Awards, and has since broken the record for the most-viewed video ever in a 24-hour period on YouTube. Not surprisingly, HollywoodLife has taken this real fact and twisted it into fake news, asserting that it’s been told by a so-called Swift “insider” that Swift is “thrilled” with her record-breaking single and music video.

Obviously, she’s “thrilled” by the song’s success. Did HollywoodLies, as it’s known, honestly believe that anyone thought she was miserable over “Look What You Made Me Do” smashing records? Regardless of its motivations, the site manufactured its latest article.

In its bogus story, the webloid’s seemingly made-up “source” is quoted as saying, “[Swift] is so pleased to be the only artist to have over 20 million views in one day,” and the excitement has her “totally pumped to be going out on tour again.” The outlet’s almost assuredly nonexistent tipster goes on to claim, “Taylor can’t wait to announce her tour soon, sometime around the time that she drops her album.”

Once again, HollywoodLies is pretending to have insider information when it doesn’t. Of course, Swift is going to announce a world tour to accompany the release off her new album Reputation. Singers generally tour in support of their latest album. The site didn’t need one of its seemingly fictitious source quoted as saying, “Taylor can’t wait to announce her tour soon.”

After the vast amount of falsehoods the site has posted surrounding the release of Swift’s latest track, presumably even the most casual Gossip Cop reader will be able detect the outlet’s lies. In the past, for example, we recently corrected HollywoodLife for wrongly claiming Selena Gomez was “excited” for Swift to release Reputation. Of course, Swift’s closest friend is happy for her, but the blog alleging to have the “exclusive” scoop on that is just a sham. Simply, HollywoodLies fabricates articles around the obvious in an attempt to convince readers it has real sources.

As Gossip Cop has pointed out before, no one from Swift’s inner circle is feeding the website with information about the singer. Regardless, we looked into HollywoodLies’ latest claim, and once again a Swift confidante assures Gossip Cop the report is 100 percent “made-up.”
