Quavo just dropped the never-before-seen highlight package of his days as a high school QB — and we gotta say, Huncho’s GOT GAME. In the tape, the Migos rap star shows why he’s Gwinnett County, Georgia’s all-time completions leader … breaking…
Remember when the release of a Taylor Swift music video was more than just an Internet event?
Remember when it was practically a national holiday?
Those days are not all that long ago… yet it certainly seems as if buzz surrounding the artist has died down considerably since nearly the entire world scoffed as her "Look What You Made Me Do" video.
Has the music world moved on from Taylor Swift?
It's an interesting question in light of her unveiling the video for the single "Delicate" at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards.
The singer, who did win Female Artist of the Year at the show, opens the clip by being interviewed on the red carpet.
She is then handed some kind of magical note before she walks into a hotel lobby, where she’s asked to pose for a selfie by a fan prior to her bodyguards taking her away.
From here, Swift realizes she’s suddenly become invisible (yes, invisible) and celebrates by tossing off her shoes and dancing up a storm … including shaking it off on top of the hotel bar.
There has to be a message in here somewhere, right?
About Swift sort of wishing she could be invisible at times?
Next, Taylor is in the subway, crawling barefoot on to the cleanest train anyone has ever seen in the history of this transportation system.
The scene then shifts to show her up at street level, where it’s pouring rain.
(There's a glimpse at one point of Joe’s Deli, which we're guessing is and to boyfriend Joe Alwyn.)
At this point, Swift truly goes for it, spinning on the roof of a car and doing some splits.
She feels more free and more content than ever before, it seems.
Eventually, however, the note dissolves in Taylor's hand and suddenly all the patrons at a bar can see her again. Darn!
And while it does seem as if Swift's reputation has taken a hit of late, she still has quite the passionate fan base on social media.
“@taylorswift13 the music video is so pure and real i cant stop crying and the meaning behind is important i love you with my whole heart,” one person wrote in response, while another added:
"Honey the freedom and the happiness you showed in the video was everything…such an amazing reminder to be yourself and to never be afraid to do what’s right for you I LOVE YOU."

Bobby Zarin has lost his battle against cancer.
The husband of Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin, Bobby passed away on Saturday while surrounded by family members and loved ones.
He was 71 years old.
In tribute to her late soulmate, Jill posted an official statement on her website on behalf of the family.
It reads as follows:
“With the heaviest of hearts, we are devastated to share the news that our beloved Bobby Zarin passed away peacefully today surrounded by family after a courageous battle with cancer.
“There are no words to describe how heartbroken we are. Thank you, everyone for all your love, and support during this difficult time.”
Along with this simple and sentimental message, the website included a photo of Bobby in a suit.
Here it is:
Bobby Zarin was initially diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2009.
He went on to have his thyroid removed, while also undergoing radioactive iodine treatment in an attempt to overcome the very serious illness.
“He’s in a better place now,” said friend and fellow Bravo personality Ramona Singer to E! News.
In July of 2015, Bobby spoke to People Magazine about the diagnosis and treatment.
“The radioactive iodine usually kills off whatever undetectable cancer cells are left in your body after surgery,” he explained at the time, adding:
“We thought it was cured – and it usually is in about 93 percent of cases. But I wasn’t able to absorb the radioactive iodine. So it came back.”
In emotional footage shared on her Instagram page back on December 3, Jill discussed how her husband was in the hospital and “was [doing] okay.”
But she clearly knew the end was sadly near.
“I’m just going to miss Bobby,” she said tearfully in this video. “I’m going to miss my life with him.”
Although the Real Housewives of New York City veteran tried to be optimistic throughout Bobby’s treatment, she said “his cancer took an unexpected turn” over the summer.
In July of last year, Bobby was admitted to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, where he recovered from a procedure related to his disease.
“He is not going down without a fight,” Jill told People. “We’re hoping for a miracle.”
The couple was married for 17 years at the time of Bobby’s death.
In addition to Jill, Bobby is survived by his children – David Zarin, 41, Jennifer Zarin, 38, Jonathan Zarin, 35; along with 25-year-old stepdaughter Ally Shapiro.
A service for Bobby will be held at a Riverside Memorial at a yet-to-be determined date.
Our thoughts go out to Jill Zarin and all others affected by this tragedy.
May Bobby Zarin rest in peace.
Taylor Swift's "Endgame" music video quietly dropped, folks! It features partying, drinking, dancing, and more drinking.
Oh, and some hefty appearances by Ed Sheeran and Future. Check it out below!
Taylor Swift was tremendously popular, even a decade ago. But, for a while, she was a very niche celebrity. Not only was she a hopeless romantic, her music was primarily of the Country variety.
That changed with her 2014 album, 1989. And those of us who weren't already became obsessed with the undeniably pleasant music of one Ms. Swift.
For more than a year, Taylor Swift was sailing high above the clouds. Everyone wanted to be on her side and no one wanted to cross her.
Until, in 2016, she broke up with underwear model and DJ Calvin Harris. After it was revealed that she had written (and even performed some uncredited vocals in) his biggest hit song, he lashed out at her on Twitter, referencing her feud with Katy. A number of people, fatigued with Taylor's overexposure in the media, began to turn on her.
And that was when Kim Kardashian struck, releasing a series of months old, edited videos of a conversation between Taylor and Kanye that appeared to frame Taylor Swift as dishonest or "playing the victim."
What's important to remember about the fued-related songs on Taylor Swift's Reputation album is that … they're not really part of the feud.
These songs aren't weapons designed to hurt Kim Kardashian.
And we don't know how someone would go about "hurting" Kanye with music.
She slams Kanye with her music, but the guy basically lives on his own private planet.
Taylor's purpose — in addition to telling her story — is much more practical.
You know they say that success is the best revenge? Well, Taylor Swift is really good at revenge.
Reputation was the top-selling album of 2017. Because of course it was.
Taylor's success is taking everything that Kim threw at her in 2016 and singing about it for heaps of cold, hard cash. Several of the songs directly reference the feud.
Kim, though she's never had trouble being wealthy and is arguably a master at turning bad press into a financial gain, won't find it so easy to directly monetize her side of the feud.
Unless she, like, comes out with some kind of fragrance line called "Snake Repellant" or whatever.
Based on what Taylor put into her "Endgame" music video, you'd think that she'd taken to drinking to cope with her epic feud and the resulting fallout.
Of course, the music video just shows her at a bunch of parties, where drinking is pretty standard. So there's that.
Taylor's big guns for the music video are her guest stars.
Remember when Reputation came out, and people were like "wait, did she just get Ed Sheeran to rap?"
That was this song. Long the original track, this music video features both Ed Sheeran and Future.
Overall, this video is less powerful than "Look What You Made Me Do" or the high-ish concept video fro "Are You Ready For It."
And, in my opinion, so is the song. (My bestie likes "Endgame" a lot, though)
Some of us prefer the videos with stunning visuals to the ones with drinking and partying. We can all drink and party, even if we can't do it with quite Taylor's budget.
You know what music videos we'd really like to see from Taylor? "This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things" and "Getaway Car." Those were two of the best songs on the whole dang album and don't get the attention that they deserve.
A nice music video or two could change that.
Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley … can rap. The 28-year-old slot receiver just dropped the first single from his new album. It’s called “80 Stings” and Cole hits on everything from Dak Prescott’s throwing ability to his professional…
Luann de Lesseps has taken the first step toward recovery:
The Real Housewives of New York City cast member has admitted she has a problem.
Just a few days after she was arrested for some very embarrassing and troubling behavior in Palm Beach, de Lesseps has announced that she’s checking into rehab.
She acknowledges that she needs professional help.
“After the events of last Saturday night in Palm Beach, I am truly embarrassed,” says the long-time Bravo star via statement, adding:
“I have decided to seek professional guidance and will be voluntarily checking into an alcohol treatment center. I intend to turn this unfortunate incident into a positive life changing event.
“Once again, I sincerely apologize for my actions. I have the greatest respect for police officers and the job they do.
“My actions alleged in the police report do not reflect my core values and my law abiding character.”
We certainly wish Luann the best.
And we don’t mean to pass judgment, nor can we truly understand what’s been going on with her…
… but the events from last weekend do seem like enough on their own to warrant this step.
de Lesseps has been charged with FOUR felonies after she and an ex-lover broke into a Florida hotel room and refused to leave at the behest of a security guard.
After police were called to the scene, Luann locked herself in a bathroom and pushed an officer upon her escape.
She then somehow managed to break free from her handcuffs and cause more mayhem, yelling about how she’s going to kill everyone.
Seriously, check out the crazy arrest details HERE.
The trip to Palm Beach was Luann’s first time back in that city after she married Tom D’Agostino there.
The pair split just a few months later and Luann cites this trauma as the basis for her drunken breakdown.
This is what she Tweeted upon being released from custody:
I want to offer my most sincere apologies to anyone that I might have offended with my behavior. This was my first time in Palm Beach since my wedding and being here brought up buried emotions.
I am committed to a transformative and hopeful 2018.
She is due in court for a hearing on January 25 – and she will NOT be fired from Bravo.
We wish Luann well.
If you’re familiar with singer Sia’s craeer and public persona, then you’re probably aware that the 41-year-old Aussie doesn’t exactly court the spotlight.
Quite the reverse, in fact, as she routinely conceals her face with outlandish wigs or paper bags when appearing in public.
But while Sia may prefer to remain hidden and keep the focus on her music, she proved today that she’s willing to bare all in order to thwart criminals who seek to profit from invading her privacy.
It seems Sia caught wind of the fact that a secretive group was looking to sell several illicit photos taken by paparazzi while she was in a private residence.
Rather than allow these bastards to cash in on their crimes, she undercut their efforts by posting the images online for free.
“Someone is apparently trying to sell naked photos of me to my fans. Save your money, here it is for free. Everyday is Christmas!” Sia tweeted along with a link to the images.
Obviously, Sia shouldn’t have had to take such drastic actions, but this is certainly a masterclass in turning a negative into a positive!
She even snuck in a plug for her forthcoming holiday album, Everyday Is Christmas.
Sia handled the situation like a boss, but for many, the story is bringing to mind other instances in which public figures saw their privacy invaded by hackers in the most appalling fashion imaginable, the most notable of which may have been the so-called “Fappening” that took place in 2014.
Once again, the issue here is about consent.
Sia has posted nude photos in the past, but she did so of her own volition.
This time, her hand was forced, which makes what happened to her nothing less than a sex crime.
Astonishingly, in 2017 there are grown adults who believe that if a public figure has posted nude photos in the past, they’re now considered fair game, and anyone in possession of additional explicit images can post them with impunity.
This makes about as much sense as arguing that because a woman has had sex before, she can’t be raped.
Sexual assault in Hollywood has been in the news a lot lately, with many brave souls coming forward with shocking stories of abuse.
It’s important to bear in mind that being publicly exposed against one’s will can be a traumatizing experience that takes a lifelong toll on the victim–and the perpetrators of such misdeeds are criminals who must be brought to justice, just the same as Harvey Weinstein and his ilk.
Taylor Swift, whether you love her or hate her or somehow manage to be indifferent, is back.
She's owning the "snake" label and turning it back on her detractors. Her new album comes out sooner that you could believe.
But you don't have to wait that long, because she's dropped a brand new single — and you can listen to it, below.
What was the first thing that you did this morning? (Wait, don't answer that)
The first thing that I did this morning was check my phone, and I'd received an iTunes email telling me that a new Taylor Swift song was available.
YouTube had already notified me that she had a new video available. It's a lyrics video, but still — it's the debut of her new song.
Taylor has been teasing the track all week, on social media platforms like Instagram and Tumblr.
(Taylor is known to interact directly with superfans and address them by name on Tumblr in particular)
This song, "Call It What You Want," is only the fourth single that Taylor has unveiled from her new album, Reputation.
As we mentioned, in addition to the iTunes release, the song came out in a lyric video on YouTube.
We'll be honest, it's the weakest of Taylor's new singles … but it's also quite possibly the most informative.
See, "Call It What You Want" is widely believed to be about Joe Alwyn.
Note that Taylor's previous single, "Gorgeous," which possibly includes North West's voice in order to taunt Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, is also basically universally believed to be about her current boyfriend.
Seriously, the whole song sounds like gushing over Joe Alwyn, if not by name.
That was "Gorgeous." In "Call It What You Want," Taylor gets to that … but first, before she gets into the relationship stuff, she talks about how she was wronged.
"My castle crumbled overnight / I brought a knife to a gunfight / They took the crown, but it's alright."
Her career spiraled out of control, as she predicted when she first expressed to Kanye that she was leery of him mentioning her in his song.
(Which we know from the shadily edited recordings that Kim later leaked)
She speaks frankly about how she deliberately vanished from the public eye in order to let things cool down.
"All the liars are calling me one / Nobody's heard from me for months / I'm doing better than I ever was, 'cause."
Why is she now doing better, you wonder?
Here's the chorus:
"My baby's fit like a daydream."
We don't know of any photos of Joe Alwyn shirtless (which is weird, for an actor, right?), so we suppose that we'll just have to take Taylor's word for it about his fitness.
"Walking with his head down / I'm the one he's walking to."
Rumor has it that Taylor and Joe have been meeting covertly to avoid the public eye throughout their relationship.
"So call it what you want, yeah, call it what you want to."
Ah, yes, the part of the song with the song's title in it.
"My baby's fly like a jet stream / High above the whole scene / Loves me like I'm brand new."
The "high above the whole scene" line clearly refers to how they can avoid public judgments and rumors and haters by just being separate from them.
And the "loves me like I'm brand new" line, of course, refers to her reputation not being a factor in their relationship.
And then, again, the title.
"So call it what you want, yeah, call it what you want to."
You guys, Reputation drops in one week — on November 10th.
It will be interesting to see if her relationship with Tom Hiddleston made it into a song.
It will also be interesting to hear how aggressively she calls out Calvin Harris. Kim might have never had the opportunity to drop those recordings on Snapchat if Calvin hadn't thrown his little tantrum on Twitter first.
Anyway, we can hardly wait.
At last, when Reputation comes out, we'll know which song is our favorite.
And we'll get to see how it compares to 1989.
Taylor Swift has released the third single off her upcoming album and it has taken the Internet by storm and the singer’s fans by shock.
Because this isn’t a break-up anthem.
It’s actually… the opposite?!?
Apparently oh so VERY smitten with current boyfriend Joe Alwyn, Swift gushes over the British stud muffin throughout the course of this song, belting out such lyrics as:
You’re so gorgeous/I can’t say anything to your face/‘Cause look at your face/And I’m so furious/At you for making me feel this way/But what can I say?/You’re gorgeous.
Pretty straightforward, huh?
It’s worth mentioning that Alwyn has blue eyes and that Swift also cites “ocean blue eyes looking in mine, I feel like I might sink and drown and die” in the song.
“You make me so happy it turns back to sad, There’s nothing I hate more than what I can’t have,” she croons at another point.
Go ahead and listen to the single here:
Swift, a 10-time Grammy winner, has of course earned a reputation for often slamming ex-boyfriends in her music.
The most obvious example would be “Dear John,” a song very clearly about John Mayer, along with “I Knew You Were Trouble.”
But Alwyn clearly has a different kind of influence on the superstar.
He and Swift started dating in May and have actually kept their romance mostly on the Down Low, a stark change for a celebrity typically known for flaunting relationships in the media.
“Her decision to keep her relationship with Joe quiet is making her happy,” a source has told People Magazine, adding:
“They have been getting to know each other slowly without any pressure.”
And while the Internet often debates just who the subject is of various Taylor Swift songs, the answer is obvious this time around:
Swift’s upcoming sixth album, “Reputation,” hits stores on November 10.
She debuted the LP’s lead single, “Look What You Made Me Do,” in August; followed by a promotional track titled “…Ready for It?” in early September.
Neither was particularly well received by the listening public.
The video for “Look What You Made Me Do” was especially lambasted. Watch it below.
Of this new record, though, an insider tells Us Weekly that Swift isn’t messing around.
“She’s definitely coming for the Grammys,” the tabloid writes in its latest issue, adding that the disc is “her most experimental work yet in terms of sound.”
Look for her to go after Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry and Calvin Harris on different songs, a second insider tells this same magazine.
Also: look for Swift to be EVERYwhere later this fall in promotion of the album.
Are you ready for her musical comeback?!?
Last week, Taylor dropped "Look What You Made Me Do," the very first single from her new album … and she blew our minds.
Not necessarily because of the quality of the song, which was honestly not so great, but because she had a completely different sound than the old Taylor Swift.
Which makes sense, because in the song, she explains that the old Taylor Swift is dead.
It was also fun to analyze the lyrics and, a few days later, the music video — she obviously has a big grudge with someone, and the girl left us so many hidden clues and messages.
It was like celebrity gossip Christmas, really.
Even though it's been over a week now since we first heard the song, people are still talking about it. A lot.
Which makes it more than a little surprising that she went ahead and released another single today.
The new song is called "…Ready for It," and while it's still very, very different than what we'd expect from her, this one is a little more familiar than "Look What You Made Me Do."
And that's because this song is a love song.
Judging by some of the lyrics, we're guessing this is about her current boyfriend, actor Joe Alwyn.
They've been dating since last year, and in a lyric from the first verse, Taylor sings that the object of her affection here is "younger than my exes but he acts like such a man though."
Joe is 26, a year younger than Taylor, and quite a bit younger than many of her previous lovers, men like Tom Hiddleston, Calvin Harris, and John Mayer.
There's a chance she could still be pulling inspiration from her relationship with Harry Styles, who is four years her junior, but that would be sad at this point.
So let's just say this is about Joe — and if it is, then she seems to be very, very serious about him.
So serious that in another part of the song, she sings "Every lover known in comparison is a failure, I forget their names now."
And like, we know she didn't actually forget their names, but this Joe must be pretty darn special, huh?
Listen to the full song below:
