Men, move over – the top 40 most powerful women in the music industry have been unleashed and we ARE feeling it.

It's been a big year for music and women, particularly in Hollywood with all the social movements.

Now this year’s Woman’s Hour Power List has been published and it comes as no surprise that a familiar face topped the list.

Our gal Beyonce napped top spot, with Tay-tay closely following behind and Adele sits comfortably at fourth place.

Bey secured number one as the judges said she has used her music and position of influence to bring “black politics, civil rights activism and feminism into the mainstream”.

And honestly, no one will ever forget her UNREAL performance at Coachella this year, where she was the first black woman to headline the festival. – OWNING LIFE.

Swifty snaked into second place as the judges praised her for being “unafraid to take on big brands and call out injustice” while “empowering” the youth of today to be “strong women”. – We knew you were trouble Tay, Tay, but in all the right ways.

In third place, you mightn't have heard of her – but it should be known she's a badass boss lady.

Vanessa Reed is chief executive of the PRS Foundation, an organisation that funds new music and talent development.

The judges were highly impressed with her ability to get international festivals on board to pledge for gender parity.  – As are we.

Joseph Kann, the director of the music video for Taylor Swift's new single, Look What You Made Me Do, has denied claims that he copied the imagery in Beyoncé's Formation.

Following the single's release on Thursday night, a teaser clip was dropped for the upcoming video.

Beyoncé fans were quick to point out some comparisons between the visuals for the two videos, and many took to Twitter to share the similarities, with some even accusing Taylor of cultural appropriation.

Last night, Joseph addressed the accusations in a tweet writing that he has much “love and respect for Bey”, though Taylor's new video is “not in her art space.”

Joseph has previously worked with Beyoncé during the Destiny's Child era as director of the Say My Name and Jumpin' Jumpin videos. He has also worked with Taylor on a number of projects including the videos for Bad Blood, Blank Space, Wildest Dreams and Out Of The Woods.

Look What You Made Me Do is the first single from Taylor's sixth studio album, Reputation, which is set to be released on November 10.

We don't even know what to say about this… a TV channel dedicated entirely to ONE person? It sounds so crazy.

But alas, that's what Taylor Swift just did.

Last night, AT&T announced that they will soon be launching a streaming channel that just has footage of Tay Tay on it.

Called Taylor Swift NOW, you will be able to access Swifty content at all hours of the day.

AT&T Entertainment CEO John Stankey said: "Taylor Swift NOW is one of many exciting things we have in store for Taylor’s fans and our customers as part of our exclusive multi-year deal.

"We can’t wait to get Taylor Swift NOW into the hands of fans to stream everywhere."

The channel, which is the first of its kind, will have exclusive videos, concert footage, behind-the-scenes clips as well as a special archive which will bring you along Tay's journey to stardom.

We don't know about you, but we think this might be a tad toooo much.

Wowsers. We probably didn't need confirmation that you just don't mess with Taylor Swift – but if we did, that's now happened.

And it's happened in SPECTACULAR fashion. Here's the back-story:

Earlier this evening, former One Directioner Zayn Malik shared a now deleted tweet from the @FemaleTexts account with his 15.4m followers.

The message (ouch) negatively compares one Taylor Swift to fellow pop star, Miley Cyrus, and includes a screenshot of an interview with TIME.

In the interview, Ms Swift encourages her fans to download her music from iTunes now that she's withdrawn from Spotify

In contrast, Ms Cyrus's quote explains that as she's already “made [her] money” she doesn’t care if “no one buys [her] album.” Then there's a description of Cyrus’s Happy Hippie Foundation, which benefits LGBT youth.

The tweet concludes: “The difference is astounding.”

Right or wrong, the sentiment is clear: multi-millionaire Taylor Swift, 25, is intent on making LOTS more money for herself – while Miley Cyrus, 22, is more concerned with using her celebrity and fortune to help others.

Understandably, it is an accusation that Tay-Tay's boyfriend wasn't about to take lying down.

"You've made your money?" he began addressing Mr Malik via the social-networking site. "Cool… fuck the 99% of musicians who depend on these services to survive right? Yeah fuck em."

A series of tweets ensued, including the line: "There's some poor fucker in a basement making your new favorite record trying to survive."

Zayn then fought back: "Ha you just made an absolute fool of yourself mate," he began, adding: "I suggest you calm your knickers before them dentures fall out."

The 22-year-old concluded with: "Oh and I write my own shit too dickhead."

Taylor herself has yet to get involved – although 31-year-old Calvin did appear to offer an olive branch of sorts to his rival in the end.

For now, Mr Malik has bowed out of the contest: he's giving the Scottish DJ the silent treatment.

Whatever next… Perrie Edwards throwing in her tuppence worth? Well, Little Mix did just appear on stage with Taylor in California.

Yup, it seems lines have been drawn.
