Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off Debuts At No. 1

In: Donovan, Music
taylor-swift-shake-it-off

Love it or hate it, “Shake It Off” is the No. 1 single in the country. Taylor Swift shimmied her way to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 thanks to 544,000 first-week downloads. That number represents the biggest total of the year, surpassing Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” which held the title previously with 490,000.

“Shake It Off’s” huge debut also marks the fourth biggest bow of all-time. In fact, Swift now owns two of the four slots. Flo Rida reigns supreme with 636,000 for “Right Round,” followed by Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and Katy Perry’s “Roar” with 623,000 and 557,000 downloads respectively.

Also making a solid debut was Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda.” It lands at the runner-up slot, giving the rapper her highest charting single to date. Guess that rumored premeditated wardrobe malfunction at the MTV VMAs worked.

In other Taylor-related news, the 24-year-old released outtakes from the filming of her “Shake It Off’ music video. Watch it below.

I don’t know about you, but I just can’t get enough of Beyonce’s epic performance during last night’s MTV Music Video Awards. I could watch it all day long (and I have.) Bey made all those other bitches look like amateurs trying out for Rising Star ;) Seriously though, that woman knows how to perform. #FLAWLESS

Overall, the 2014 awards entertained. From Nicki Minaj’s wardrobe malfunction to all the shade being thrown around. There was definitely plenty to watch. What shade you ask? Well, Gwen Stefani’s hilarious index finger clap after Taylor Swift’s performance. How about Miley Cyrus caught mouthing ‘asshole’ as Ed Sheeran walked past her to accept an award. I could go on. Relive last night’s performances and a couple of awesome shady moments.

Taylor Swift Shakes It Off In Brand New Video

In: Donovan, Music

if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it as they say. Much like she did to kick off her Red era, Taylor Swift used a popular online destination to announce her forthcoming album and new single. This time around, she chose Yahoo! Live Stream in lieu of YouTube to share the news.

Swift unveiled her new single “Shake It Off” on Monday. The Max Martin/Shellback-produced single isn’t a jilted love song but rather a fun and upbeat pop anthem. It’s the lead cut off her forthcoming fifth studio album titled 1989- the year she was born.

The accompanying visual finds Taylor taking on different dance styles, ranging from ballet, to hip-hop to contemporary. Is someone auditioning for So You Think You Can Dance ;) Watch the 24-year-old channel her inner Black Swan below.

The Weinstein Company debuted the first trailer for The Giver back in March. With the August release date nearing, the studio released several posters featuring the main characters.

The Giver is based on Lois Lowry’s beloved young adult novel of the same name, which was the winner the 1994 Newbury Medal and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide. After spending more than 15 years in development hell, the feature film adaptation is here and with a stellar cast.

The haunting story of THE GIVER centers on Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community.

Future cinematic superstar Brenton Thwaites tackles the role of Jonas with Alexander Skarsgard and Katie Holmes playing his parents. Meryl Streep gets her evil on as the Chief Elder. Taylor Swift becomes a brunette to portray Rosemary, The Giver’s daughter. Some girls can pull off various hair colors but not Swift in my opinion. She looks better as a blond for sure. Check out the rest of the character posters below.

Imagine if Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and the rest of your favorite pop stars attended the same high school. Well, in Todrick Hall’s insanely creative mind, they did. He’s outdone himself with his new series Pop Star High.

Lady Gaga (Sideara St. Claire) is the gifted creative social outcast tormented by the school’s mean girls- Britney (Jayleen Griffin), Nicki Minaj (Kendra Hill) and Christina Aguilera (Lauren Berry). Thankfully, Stefani Germanotta finds kindness from other students- Taylor Swift (Erin Solomon) and Beyonce (Asia’h Epperson). Her luck turns around (or she thinks) when the hottest boy in school, Justin Timberlake (Michael Rexford), asks her out. Hall himself joins the action as Ne-Yo. Check out all the musical drama below.

As much as Taylor Swift sometimes annoys me, that’s how much I adore Karlie Kloss. The 21-year-old is one of my favorite models of the moment. She could easily fit in seamlessly with the model trinity of Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell and Linda Evangelista during the 90s supermodel era. Who knew she was such good friends with Swift? I wonder how Selena Gomez feels about Karlie encroaching on her BFF.

The two recently embarked on a two-day road trip on California’s stunning Pacific Coast Highway. I’ve taken the exact route several times before and it never fails to impress me with its numerous gorgeous vantage points. The famous friends shared pictures from their epic adventure on their respective Instagrams. Any bets on what tunes they played in the car? More importantly, what did they gossip about? Inquiring minds want to know. Check out the adorable photos below.
