Celeb Scoop: Papa John’s Doesn’t Want Taylor Swift to Play a Concert for Deaf Kids

Plus: Famous people get really political, an X Factor for mathletes, and more of today's celebrity news.

Taylor Swift Won’t Play Concert for the Deaf. The Internet trolls came out from under the bridge in an attempt to get Taylor Swift to play a concert for the students at the Horace Mann School for the Deaf in Massachusetts. Unsurprisingly, the trolls worked their magic and had the school win the contest handily. But, Papa John’s and Chegg—the contest’s sponsors—disqualified Horace Mann for how they got their votes. Haters. Luckily, though, both companies, Cover Girl, American Greetings, and Taylor Swift all donated $10,000 to the school. Swift also offered all the students free tickets to her show when she’s in town. [Gawker]

Minka Kelly Back With Chris Evans? The Friday Night Lights star is back with her former flame, except this time he’s Captain America and is fresh off saving the world in a movie that grossed more than $1 billion.
