So, you’re sick of boring celebrity interviews, too? You’ve come to the right place. Welcome.
My name is Taylor, I’m an LA-based entertainment and red carpet reporter interviewing celebrities using a selfie stick (yes… a selfie stick), getting them to dive into real and provocative issues verses the tired “Who are you wearing?” conversations.
Playboy called me the “Celebrity Whisperer,” and on this site, you’ll see celebs from Chris Pratt to Oprah getting personal with me in interviews. I came up with the concept as a way to break the mold and to get the stars to let their hair down, be more authentic, and share how they really feel. (I also went rogue since I didn’t have the means for a camera crew.)
I’m also a regular contributor to outlets like Us Weekly, The Hollywood Reporter, and Vulture (previously Playboy, Bustle, VH1, and Refinery 29) and have covered every major event from the Emmys to the Grammys and the Vanity Fair Oscar party.
Last year, I created a six-page feature in Playboy in which four other female journalists and I challenged sex norms by posing nude and writing essays on free expression. I’ve tackled Hollywood’s hypocrisy around #MeToo in The Huffington Post, and sexual exploitation — or not — of women stars for Bustle. I’m not afraid to go there to start the dialogues we want and need.
From my vantage point behind the velvet rope and interacting with celebs daily, I have a totally unique perspective on pop culture, the entertainment industry, and sexuality in Hollywood, and I’m definitely not afraid to talk about it with you guys.
Thanks for visiting and excited to have you along for the ride.
