So about that maple latte JayTay was drinking...

Has all this talk about JayTay - aka Gyllenswift, aka Swiftenhaal, whichever - made you a little thirsty?

Understandable if so; the twosome were reportedly spotted spending Thanksgiving getting maple lattes in Brooklyn.

The coffee shop in question was Park Slope's Gorilla Coffee, and from what we’ve found, it seems to be one of the few places around selling this special maple brew. (I just tried to order one at Starbucks, unsuccessfully.)

Kanye West and Nicki Minaj top the charts

Kanye West and Nicki Minaj just delivered a one, two punch.

According to Billboard, the pair’s respective albums have landed in the No. 1 and No. 2 spots on the Hot 200 chart with West’s “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” selling 496,000 copies, and Minaj’s “Pink Friday” selling 397,000, based on figures from Nielsen SoundScan.

The news was not unexpected, though industry analysts had predicted a slightly stronger showing. The achievement marks West’s fourth straight No. 1 album. It is also the first time in two years that two albums have debuted on the Billboard 200 with sales of more than 300,000 units.

Jennifer Grey to have consultation, not surgery

It looks like Jennifer Grey’s “Dancing With the Stars” win came with an injury: The 50-year-old “Dirty Dancing” star has a ruptured disc.

But, although Grey told Access Hollywood Tuesday that she was probably going to have surgery either "this week or sometime next week," her rep clarified to CNN that Grey “is not scheduled for surgery. She is going in for a consultation and they’ll see if anything needs to be done.”

If surgery is needed, Grey isn’t fazed. “Compared to the other surgeries I had on my neck, my doctor says it won’t be a big deal,” she told Access Hollywood, referring to the injuries she suffered after a 1987 car accident in Ireland with then-boyfriend Matthew Broderick.

"You don’t know what she might be like - if she has any sense of humor at all. I was so pleased to find that she is incredibly normal, and has a wonderfully kind of dark, perverse sense of humor.”
