Taylor Swift's Reputation tour set to be one of the biggest tours of all time


Taylor's people want you to know that the reports about her lack of sellouts are misleading as these tickets designed not to sell out quickly and her tour sales are going extraordinarily well.

She sold $180 million worth of tickets in the first week and is set to sell between $390 million and $510 million tickets overall.

Instead of selling out in seconds like the 1989 tour did, Taylor is embracing a "slow-ticketing" model intended to capture the profits previously lost to scalpers and shift them back to Taylor by pricing tickets higher and having available tickets on the primary market all the way up until she starts her show.

WME exec Marc Geiger explained that they are stopping the socialist pricing scheme which previously allowed people who bought their tickets on Ticketmaster for cheaper than a reseller to have a first class experience with an economy ticket.

Meryl Streep blames lack of social media for silence, says to focus on Melania and Ivanka Trump



Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks sat down with the New York Times to promote their new movie “The Post.”

During the interview, Meryl Streep was asked how she felt about people expecting a response from her about the Harvey Weinstein accusations.

Meryl Streep said, “I don’t have a Twitter thing or – handle, whatever. And I don’t have Facebook. I really had to think. Because it really underlined my own sense of cluelessness, and also how evil, deeply evil, and duplicitous, a person he was, yet such a champion of really great work.”

She also thinks that people should be asking Ivanka and Melania Trump why they have remained silent, saying “I don’t want to hear about the silence of me. I want to hear about the silence of Melania Trump. I want to hear from her. She has so much that’s valuable to say.”

Jesse Williams Spent his Winter Break Partying with Models in Brazil



Jesse Williams is suing his ex-wife for joint physical custody of their kids, claiming she did not allow him to see the kids on Christmas Eve, Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

But don't worry - he didn't spend the holidays home alone, waiting for the phone to ring to talk to his kids. The actor spent his winter break on a trip to Brazil, where it's high summer, living it up in Pernambuco, chilling on paradisiac beaches, riding jet skis, and partying at a SEVEN-DAY New Year's bash with models and friends, which only ended on January 2nd.

Jesse travelled on a private jet to Brazil and according to Brazilian media arrived on 26 December. (Some fan sites claim he arrived on the 30th but OP could not verify). Then he reportedly took a private helicopter to Carneiros, a trendy beach spot in Pernambuco. The actor rented a house with friends. That, plus the fact that Americans need a visa to #cometobrazil, points to this trip being planned for a long time.

Other celebs who spent the holiday in Carneiros to go the same New Year's extravaganza as Jesse include Victoria's Secret models Toni Garrn (Leo's ex), Bruna Lírio, Gizele Oliveira, Mariane Fonseca, plus Grace Mahary, Imann Hamman, Melodie Monrose, Svvetlana Zarkhrova, and Sofia Resing.

On 2nd January, the actor left Pernambuco and went to Rio de Janeiro. He went to the beach and today had lunch at the exclusive Fasano restaurant. He's still in Brazil.

Did the Queen reference 'The Crown' in her Christmas speech?




-The Queen's annual Christmas speech attracted increased attention this year as some felt that her intro was a not-so-subtle reference at the second season of the hit Netflix show, The Crown.
-The Queen began her speech by stating "Sixty years ago today, a young woman spoke about the speed of technological change. She presented the first television broadcast of its kind. She described the moment as a landmark. Six decades on, the presenter has evolved somewhat, as has the technology she described. Back then, who could have imagined that people would one day be watching this on laptops and mobile phones, as some of you are today?"
-The first televised Christmas speech in 1957 was a story arc on the current season of The Crown.
-There are reports that the Queen has indeed been watching the Netflix show, on the advice of her son Edward. However it has also been reported that Philip has not followed in her footsteps. The couple's rocky marriage is a major thematic point of the second season.

Celebs react to the battle between Steve Bannon vs Donald Trump

It has been quite the acid trip. Today reached another level of crazy once The Guardian released quotes from Steve Bannon. Bannon called the Trump Tower meeting treasonous and thinks they should've gone to the FBI as soon as Russia approached the Trump campaign. He also believes that Donny Jr probably took them to meet Mango Mussolini as well. After Trump was notified about Bannon's comments, he furiously reached for the Diet Coke button.

Black Mirror Executive Producer Annabel Jones on Season 4 and the Possibility of Season 5




- felt that with the world being so bleak already with current events, they didn't want to make all the episodes depressing: "We certainly felt at the end of last year and the beginning of this year that the world felt different. We thought, "At the moment, does the world really need six very, very despairing, negative, pessimistic view points on the world? Probably not. Do I feel like I want that? No." [...] The series does try to entertain and sometimes comedy and moments of levity and a rom-com can be just as affecting as anything that’s emotionally draining and exhausting."
- despite the san junipero comparisons, thinks hang the dj is very different: [Spoiler (click to open)]it's about modern dating and how to know when to settle down when there are thousands of options out there while san junipero is about mortality and the opportunity to relive your life, how changes in times and prejudices can impact how we live our lives
- on the themes of uss callister & how they relate to current events, she says: [Spoiler (click to open)] "No one could have foreseen the extent of the sexual harassment claims and what’s been going on. So, you don’t quite know. At its heart, "Callister" is about tyranny and abuse of power. But I don’t think we could have foreseen what has happened."

ONTD Original: Unsolved Mysteries’ Most Suspect Suspects

Unsolved Mysteries was a show built on two things: re-enactments and interviews. The interview segments could either go really well...or incredibly poorly. As we know from the current political climate, public perception counts for a lot in belief of guilt or innocence.



Some of the interviewees on Unsolved Mysteries came off very forthcoming and sympathetic, while others...yikes. Here’s 6 people that came off as completely unreliable interviewees, leading watchers to believe in their guilt.

In this ONTD original series, resident true crime junkies beaarthursdrug and patchsassy go to the way-back machine for some of our favorite segments from the 1980s classic Unsolved Mysteries. (Note: all old episode numbers correspond with episodes on Amazon Prime.)
