Taylor Swift is too fake says Better Business Bureau

Taylor Swift is so totally fake -- at least, according to the Better Business Bureau. The group's National Advertising Division caught CoverGirl fibbing in one of their ads -- and the cosmetic giant has yanked it rather than prove their claims.

The ad for NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara features the always-pretty Swift with long, fluttering eyelashes with the promise "2X more volume." Only upon much closer inspection would a reader see the small print: "Lashes enhanced in post production."

Say what?

"You can't use a photograph to demonstrate how a cosmetic will look after it is applied to a woman's face and then -- in the mice type -- have a disclosure that says 'okay, not really,'" NAD director Andrea Levine told Business Insider.

Does the mascara actually plump up lashes with two times more volume or not? When the NAD asked CoverGirl to back up their claims with scientific proof, parent company Proctor and Gamble chose to pull the campaign instead.

"Upon receiving the inquiry from the NAD, P&G discontinued the advertisement in question," a P&G spokesperson wrote in an emailed statement to the press. "The NAD has deemed our intervention as accurate and proper. We have always been committed, and we continue to be committed, to featuring visuals and claims that accurately represent our products' benefits."

Myleene Klass: I love Loose Women - I don't care if they make fun of me

Myleene Klass wasn't bothered when Janet Street-Porter and Jenny Eclair defaced her photo on Loose Women.

Newly married to Graham Quinn and mum to daughters, Ava, 3, and Hero, 9 months, she has other priorities.

'Everyone was offended but I couldn't care less,' Myleene, 33, tells Now's Dan Wootton.

'My mantra isn't to get everyone to like me. I love Janet.

'When I went on the show after having Hero, she helped me out.

'I'd been up all night so hadn't brought my brain.

'She prompted me a few times and I thanked her after.'

So why did Janet and Jenny attack her picture?

'I think they just thought it'd be funny!' says Myleene.

'I want to go back on the show.

'The women are feisty and educated and funny.

'I wanted the photo so I could keep it in my downstairs bathroom, but ITV wouldn't give it to me!'

Ariel Winter's Mom Goes on All Her Dates

Modern Family's 13-year-old star Ariel Winter is already dating. But don't worry, this gal is well-versed in the opposite sex. She says she's "smart with boys." Plus, she says she "knows how to handle them" and "what to do around them."

She's confident, but as an extra precaution her mom chaperons all of her outings with male suitors (and probably drives). Winter said (via People.com): "If I go on dates, my mom is always with me. She's always there making sure I'm all right. Like if I go to see a movie with a boy, she'll go to dinner next door."

Her protective dad doesn't know most of this, though. Winter added: "My dad does worry, but he doesn't know half the things. He's just like, 'Don't tell me. Don't tell me and it's all right.'"
