Princely sum for gui­tar

Singer livid at Kanye West

7 Days in Dubai - - CELEBRITY FIX -

Tay­lor Swift is re­port­edly hor­ri­fied by Kanye West’s Fa­mous mu­sic video.

The 39-year-old rap­per’s video for his new song por­trays a num­ber of naked celebri­ties - in­clud­ing Ray J, Am­ber Rose, Cait­lyn Jen­ner, Bill Cosby, Ge­orge W Bush, Don­ald Trump, Anna Win­tour, Ri­hanna and Chris Brown - in bed with Kanye and his wife Kim Kar­dashian West and Tay­lor is livid that she has been in­cluded.

Some of the celebri­ties re­port­edly took part, while oth­ers, in­clud­ing Tay­lor, are looka­likes.

“Tay­lor is livid and hor­ri­fied,” a source told Hol­ly­woodLife. “She didn’t know what to do when she heard about what Kanye did. She is be­wil­dered, feels be­trayed and is be­yond frus­trated with Kanye. It is like a com­plete night­mare.” The song also fea­tures the line: “I feel like me and Tay­lor Swift might still have sex, I made [her] fa­mous.” It’s a claim Tay­lor, 26, has pre­vi­ously blasted. Af­ter Kim claimed Tay­lor had ap­proved the lyrics in a phone call with Kanye, the Shake It Off singer’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive said: “A song can­not be ap­proved if it was never heard. Kanye West never played the song for Tay­lor Swift. Tay­lor heard it for the first time when ev­ery­one else did and was hu­mil­i­ated.” Speak­ing about the video, Kanye told Van­ity Fair: “It’s not in sup­port or anti any of [the peo­ple in the video]. It’s a com­ment on fame.” He said some star friends are up­set not to be in it. Fans watch­ing a Billy Joel trib­ute band were treated to a sur­prise ap­pear­ance by the Piano Man him­self. Billy was in the au­di­ence on Fri­day night with his wife, Alexis Rod­er­ick, at a show in Huntington, New York, when he de­cided to join the band Big Shot for a three-song set. News­day re­ported Billy jammed on cov­ers of The Bea­tles’ With a Lit­tle Help From My Friends and the Rolling Stones’ Honky Tonk Women. The na­tive Long Is­lan­der told the crowd he lives “down the road” from the Paramount Theater, in Huntington, Long Is­land. In­di­anapo­lis Colts owner Jim Ir­say has bought a Yel­low Cloud elec­tric gui­tar that Prince used in nu­mer­ous con­certs un­til the mid-1990s. The NFL foot­ball team owner and col­lec­tor of mu­si­cal in­stru­ments paid $137,500 for the gui­tar at an auc­tion in Bev­erly Hills. Heritage Auc­tions, which con­ducted the auc­tion, said the solid body gui­tar was a favourite of the late mu­si­cian, who died in April.
