Monday gossip round-up: Taylor Swift opens Grammys with Harry Styles dig

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Show

Taylor Swift used her opening slot at the Grammys this weekend to offer a not-so-subtle dig at ex-boyfriend Harry Styles. Before a rousing chorus of “We are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” Swift offered, “So he calls me up and he’s like, ‘I still love you,’” copping a British accent in an obvious nod to the One Direction member. “And I’m like, ‘I’m sorry, I’m busy opening up the Grammys. And we’re never getting back together. Like, ever.’”

Liberty Ross is speaking out for the first time since filing for divorce from Rupert Sanders in the wake of his affair last summer with his “Snow White and the Huntsman” star, Kristen Stewart. Ross says that she is “keeping her head down” and “listening to her heart,” she tells the Associated Press. Meanwhile, sources tell Us Weekly that Sanders’ affair was simply the last straw in an already strained marriage. “She wasn’t very happy, even before all this happened,” a source says. “Rupert put a lot of pressure on her to change her life for him, and they moved to L.A. for him. She was such a big deal in England — a bigger deal than him, even.”

Jessica Chastain doesn’t appreciate the rumors out there that she and fellow Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence are feuding. “I find it very sad that media makes up bogus stories about women fighting in this industry,” Chastain writes in a post to her Facebook page. “Why do we support the myth that women are competitive and cannot get along? I think all of the actresses recognized this year have given incredible performances. But more important, they’ve all shown themselves to be filled with generosity and kindness. I’ve done two photo shoots with Jennifer Lawrence over the years and have found her to be utterly charming and a great talent.”

Angelina Jolie has kept a fairly low profile lately, sticking around London with her family while she filmed her upcoming “Maleficent” and Brad Pitt worked on “World War Z.” But the busy mother of six made a surprise appearance in L.A. this weekend, presenting a lifetime achievement award to cinematographer Dean Semler at the American Society of Cinematographers Awards, according to Us Weekly. Semler shot Jolie’s directorial debut, “In the Land of Blood and Honey.”

Justin Bieber sat out the Grammys this year, deciding instead to do a livestream web chat with fans during the awards ceremony, but technical difficulties scuttled those plans. “Livestream is over capacity and not letting me in the room. Give me a second,” Beiber tweeted, letting his frustration show. “Since nothing is working and I’m super-upset, I feel I gotta make it up to you. I should post a new song on Twitter so you can still be excited.” Bieber had decided to forgo the awards show after not receiving a single nomination.
