This release is a bit random. Why now? It’s been over a month since Taylor Swift first released her “Out Of The Woods” music video on New Year’s Eve. I suppose timing doesn’t really matter to hardcore Swifties. They’ll eat up anything she’s serving. It’s already amassed massive views.

Swift and director Joseph Kahn reveal tidbits about their most recent collaboration. Though shot on location in New Zealand, there’s plenty of CGI used to create some of the stunning visuals. With that being said, some old fashioned movie-making tricks were used as well. For instance, the blue dress she’s wearing was dipped in wax to make it appear frozen. Learn more secrets in the behind-the-scenes clip below.

Just like her other recent clips, Taylor Swift chose a huge event to debut her latest visual. The 26-year-old singer unveiled “Out Of The Woods” during Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ with Ryan Seacrest on December 31. Happy belated New Year’s Eve BTW. I think I’ve finally recovered 😉

“Out of the Woods” is the sixth single off Swift’s 1989 album. If this cracks the Top 10 like the others, I fully expect Taylor to release a seventh one. Girl is going to milk the LP until it’s bone dry.

Once again, she teams up with Joseph Kahn for another big budget video with even more special effects. Love the clip, but it’s pretty much “Wildest Dreams” but set in a forest and icy environment. Speaking of which, T-Swizzle channels a little Elsa in her Frozen blue gown in several segments of the clip. Check it out below.

For the fourth straight year, Taylor Swift has topped the Celebs Gone Good list. DoSomething.org compiles an annual list highlighting celebrities who use their fame and wealth for positive change.

Among some of the charitable acts the 26-year-old singer has done this past year include a $50,000 donation to a young girl who had to miss one of her shows to undergo treatment for leukemia. The “Bad Blood” entertainer also donated $50,000 to the Seattle Symphony, $50,000 to help fund arts education in NYC and another $50,000 to her backup dancers baby nephew fighting cancer.

Coming in the runner-up slot was Miley Cyrus. She made the cut for founding the Happy Hippy Foundation– an organization with a mission to rally young people to fight injustice facing homeless youth, LGBTQ youth and other vulnerable populations. Check out the Top 20 most charitable celebrities below.

star-wars-entertainer-of-the-year

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a certified critical and commercial success. Everywhere you go, you’re reminded the space saga is back and stronger than ever. It’s no wonder why the Associated Press bestowed the film with its Entertainer of the Year award. Voters were asked to consider who had the most influence on entertainment and culture in 2015.

“In a year full of sequels, reboots and returns, none have recaptured the zeitgeist like ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,'” wrote Nick Dutro of The Advertiser-Tribune in Tiffin, Ohio.

The intergalactic flick beat out big names for the title including Taylor Swift, Amy Schumer and Adele. Those three ladies had huge years, but were no match for the 40-year-old franchise. Others in the running for the honor were Jon Stewart, Jennifer Lawrence, Taraji P. Henson, Viola Davis and the Kardashians.

Do you think the AP chose correctly? If not, who do you think deserves the honor the most? Sound off below.

After spending several months on the road promoting her fifth studio album, Taylor Swift wrapped up The 1989 World Tour in Melbourne this past weekend, the day before her 26th birthday. For those who didn’t have a chance to catch the “Blank Space” singer’s show, fear not, it’s coming to Apple Music shortly.

Swift revealed a companion concert film is being released on Sunday, December 20. Directed by Jonas Akerlund, the movie will feature plenty behind-the-scenes clips, concert footage and all those special guests that made an appearance during the tour.

Normally, concert flicks aren’t on the top of my list to check out, especially during this hectic awards season. However, this one definitely piques my interest. I want to see how all those special cameos came about. Check out the preview below.

58th Grammy Awards: The Nominations & The Snubs

58th-grammy-awards

Alicia Keys appeared on CBS This Morning to announce the 58th annual Grammy Award nominations. Since there are 83 different categories, covering all music genres, the 34-year-old singer only revealed the general fiend nominees- Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist.

Leading the pack this year with a whopping 11 nominations is rapper Kendrick Lamar. Nipping at his heels with 7 nods apiece are Taylor Swift and The Weeknd. All three are also up for Album of the Year, along with Alabama Shakes and Chris Stapleton.

Swift and The Weeknd are also going head-to-head for the other huge award of the night- Record of the Year. “Blank Space” and “Can’t Feel My Face” face off against “Uptown Funk” (Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars), “Really Love” (D’angelo and the Vanguard) and “Thinking Out Loud” (Ed Sheeran).

For those wondering why Adele isn’t nominated for anything, it’s because 25 wasn’t eligible for this year’s awards. Noticeably absent, even though eligible was Rihanna. I thought for sure her Kanye West and Paul McCartney-assisted “FourFiveSeconds” would’ve gotten a nod. Madonna, Lana Del Rey, Nick Jonas and Carly Rae Jepsen were also snubbed.

The 58th annual Grammys will air on CBS on Monday, Feb. 15, 2016. Check out some of the nominations below.

dj-earworm-2015-mashup

Jordan Roseman aka DJ Earworm released his first original track weeks ago, but today he returned to his bread and butter. His annual United State of Pop video mashup, highlighting the top hits of the year, is hands down my favorite. Typically, he chooses the top 25 tracks based off the Billboard charts. This year, he went a step further and mashed up the 50 biggest hits.

The five-minute masterpiece titled “50 Shades of Pop” is “more eclectic mix than it was five years ago,” Earworm explains to Billboard about the diversity of tunes that blew up the charts this year. With that being said, Taylor Swift has a whopping four tracks in the mix. Close behind is The Weekend with three. Other artists with multiple offerings are Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Fetty Wap, Meghan Trainor and Ed Sheeran.

He even made room for Adele’s massive late 2015 entry, “Hello.” If you hated this year’s song of the summer, fear not, OMI’s “Cheerleader” is only shown/heard briefly. Check out this year’s offering below. It’s his best one in recent memory.

Thanks to a new cover album, Taylor Swift might have a new batch of Swifties on the way. Rockabye Baby transforms the 25-year-old’s catalog into lullaby instrumentals geared toward infants. One can never start too early to recruit fans, right?

The series, which debuted in 2006, has reworked tracks by Kanye West, Coldplay, Eminem, Jay Z, Maroon 5, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Radiohead, Bob Marley, Led Zeppelin and Metallica to name a few. There are more than 50 albums available.
