TAYLOR SWIFT: Stalker Going to Psych Ward
A creepy stalker of Taylor Swift is not going to prison -- yet.
Yesterday, a Manhattan Supreme Court judge committed Mohammed Jaffar to a psychiatric facility. He’ll be treated there until he’s well enough to stand trial on burglary and stalking charges. (New York Daily News)
Doctors determined he’s mentally unfit for trial. In the summer, Jaffar made the shocking claim that he “worked for Katy Parry. I helped her get started.”
In the spring, New York City police arrested Jaffar outside Taylor’s Tribeca apartment. He’d repeatedly visited her place, incessantly ringing the doorbell for an hour straight. Surveillance cameras caught him creeping on her roof. Somehow, he worked his way inside her secure building. On Valentine’s Day, he rode the elevator to her penthouse floor! (New York Post)

PRINCE HARRY: First Public Outing With Meghan Markle
After a year of dating, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were spotted in public together for the first time.
The couple were photographed Monday holding hands at the Invictus Games in Toronto.
Some people believe an engagement announcement is in the near future. Myka Meier, an expert on royal etiquette, tells People magazine, “I think to show PDA at such a highly publicized public event would be a very conscious decision by Prince Harry, and shows the seriousness of the relationship. Meghan would very much have taken his lead under the circumstances.”
Meghan, who stars on the USA network series Suits, also attended the games on Saturday, where she was seated 12 seats away from the prince -- as royal etiquette dictated.

SAM SMITH: Defends Sheeran
Is Ed Sheeran a "song whore?" No way, says Sam Smith.
During a recent Australian radio interview, Smith was asked why he doesn't write songs for other artists. Before he could answer, the host accused Sheeran of whoring all his songs out and teaming up with other writers on every song. "If it it’s like sex, [then] Ed is a song whore,” the jock said.
Smith wasn't having any of it. He declared that, "Ed is not a whore. Ed Sheeran is an incredible songwriter. The way that he’s written these songs for other people is just absolutely incredible and I’m enamored by him.”
Getting back to the original question, Smith added, "It just hasn’t felt right for my songs [to be shared]," and he wondered if that's because the ones he hasn't used himself "are just [crap]." On the other hand, he thinks Sheeran's "success rate with his writing is just amazing -- and he "loves [Sheeran's] stuff.” (NME)
