BRETT ELDREDGE: Faces His Fears with Death-Defying Stunts


   He’s jumped out of a plane for “Don’t Ya” and swam with sharks for “Beat of the Music.” But was Brett Eldredge always a daredevil? Before Wednesday’s number-one party for “Beat of the Music,” Brett admitted he’s new to being a adrenaline junkie.  He can even remember a time when he was too chicken to look down in the water on his first snorkeling trip. He recalls, “I jumped in the water and I said, ‘Mom, mom, mom, mom, I can’t look down … there’s no way I’m looking down.’ A guy had to drag me in a gigantic Life Saver that you can’t eat."

Brett Eldredge says he’s happy to put his fraidy-cat past behind him.  “When I jumped out of that plane, I never felt more alive because I felt like it could be taken away any second. So, I’m like, I’ve never felt that alive in my life because it was so crazy -- same things with sharks. It was like, ‘I am in someone else’s world right now.’ And it’s the most biggest rush in the world. And now I’ve kind of became an adrenaline junkie.”

That just calls for extra workouts during the week.”

Taylor Swift: Disses Exes at Teen Choice Awards


 

Taylor Swift enjoyed a drama-free Teen Choice Awards on Sunday. Looking fabulous in a green two-piece crop top outfit, T was on hand to present the Choice Actor in a Drama Movie award -- which gave her a chance to poke fun at her exes before handing the winning surfboard over to The Fault in Our Stars actor Ansel Elgort.

She said, “You know we’ve had some amazing memories here together at the Teen Choice Awards. And so, I was excited when they asked me to come and present this award, because no one knows more about dramatic males than I do.”

Back in 2006, Taylor Swift joked her self-titled debut album made her sound like a serial dater.   “You listen to my album, it sounds like I had 500 boyfriends. Honestly, I really wasn’t like that. I’m very independent. But my friends have had 500 boyfriends. So, you know, you can kind of write about things that other people are going through as well.”  Taylor brought on the drama last week with a series of clues, hinting at an August 18th Web announcement at 5 p.m. on Yahoo! Taylor made the date official  yesterday morning.

 

BRAD PAISLEY: Wants a Bartending License


   Brad Paisley is getting serious about the new bar at his home studio just south of Nashville. He tells People, "I'm going to go to bartending school. We've built a bar in the studio house on my farm and I need to know how to work it."

Brad took on the home improvement project as a toast to all those honkytonks he played before he got famous. He says, "I grew up playing bars as a teenager. We'd end at two a.m. and when I'd go back in the morning to pack everything up, it would be that stale smoke and beer thing -- the evidence of a great time. I wanted that in my studio."

Bodies of water around Nashville were also cheap thrills for Brad before he made it big.

Brad Paisley says the Cumberland River and Percy Priest Lake were his go-to places for cheap enterainment.  "I didn't have two dimes to scrape together but I had a friend with a bass boat and we would meet up every day that was nice buy any kind of tackle we could afford and just head up to either the Cumberland River or Percy Priest. But it was the release for me. I would work all the time, write songs all the time, and then I'd go to the river."
