Taylor Swift's 1989 world tour was a hot topic for most of this year, so it's no wonder the starlet is releasing a film version of her gigs. 

On Sunday, Tay gave a birthday treat to her fans and debuted the trailer to for The 1989 World Tour LIVE. 

Most of it was filmed in front of 76,000 fans at the ANZ Stadium in Sydney, Australia. It captures Taylor's entire performance plus never-before-seen footage from backstage AND all of the celeb cameo appearances. 

Christmas pressie, please?! 


Taylor Swift dropped her album 1989 well over a year ago, but it's safe to say that most of the songs are still quite popular. 

And since 1989 was such a big hit for 2015, Taylor has become pretty… protective of her lyrics. 

So much so that she's gone as far as trademarking some of them. Earlier this year, Ms Swift trademarked phrases from some of her songs, including, "this sick beat," "party like it's 1989," and "nice to meet you, where you been."

Which means that anyone that writes "nice to meet you, where you been," on a Christmas card could face legal action because Tay's trademark prevents anyone from selling products with that phrase on them. Damn.

And now, Taylor has gone one step further this week in order to trademark some more words. This time she's claiming phrases, "blank space," "and I'll write your name," and "Swiftmas." Yes… Swiftmas. 

But in perhaps the most shocking, Tay is trying to trademark one more phrase; 1989!

How Taylor can trademark a WHOLE YEAR that millions upon millions of people were born in, we just don't know.

But according to the Independent, she did make one thing clear; the trademark would only apply to the "stylised form." Which means she just doesn't want people using her specific 1989 design on anything else (which we guess is a little better than claiming the whole year).

Taylor isn't the only one wanting to trademark a few things though, as Kris Jenner has recently made her feelings known about one specific phrase she wants to claim for herself


There's no doubt that Demi Lovato is TOTALLY killing the music scene right now. But if there's one person doing just as well, it's her Disney BFF Nick Jonas

The two former Disney stars are on every radio station and lately have been turning out hit after hit. So it's only understandable that Demi would want Nick to join her on her upcoming world tour. 

While Adam Lambert had originally been scheduled to be Demi's opening act, there was a switch up and Nick has now secured the opening act spot. 

The goods news is, there is no beef between Adam and Demi as they blamed the switch up to "complex" business negotiations. Adam even tweeted out his support for the duo:

No dates on Demi's tour have been released yet but with two Disney stars back on the stage together, the possibilities of duets are endless! Camp Rock reunion anyone?


Yesterday is was revealed that Taylor Swift was not only a musician but also a novelist  (shock) and she already wrote a book at the tender age of 14.

As this news was very surprising to most, the singer revealed that if she didn't move to Nashville to support her music career, she might have ended up in marketing.

“I would have gone to college, and I would probably be involved with a form of business where words and ideas are at the forefront. Such as marketing.”

Well, today it was revealed just how much money Taylor is making from her 1989 world tour, and we're sure she is counting her blessings she didn't choose marketing.

The 25-year-old is no doubt one of the hardest working musicians of our time, and her on-going tour is a great example of that.

Teen Vogue reported that her tour is one of the highest grossing tours of the last 10 years, bringing in a massive €150m over 17 weeks and 59 concerts.

And it isn't even finished yet!

Only five other female musicians have grossed over €100m on tour since 2010: Beyoncé , Katy Perry, Madonna, Lady Gaga, and Pink.

Well done Taylor!


Will Smith has revealed today that he is returning to music and already has a new album in the works!

Speaking on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show, he said that he's got about 30 new songs recorded.

"I have six or seven that I really like, that I'm trying to get the ideas to come out right."

Mr Smith said that after a decade of no music, he's going to be in the studio everyday, recording and working with an assortment of collaborators to find his voice. 

"I have so many things that I want to say and I'm struggling with saying them in a way that fit the flavour of music that I tend to like."

Later in the show, the 47-year-old teased plans of a world tour next summer, along with his longtime collaborator, DJ Jazzy Jeff.

Nearly 30 years after DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince released the triple platinum He's the DJ, I'm the Rapper in 1988, this would be the first full tour for the duo, and Will admits he's "terrified" over the prospect. 

"I was always making a movie, so we've never actually done a full tour. So I'm looking this summer to be the first time that we go out on a full world tour."



This man, Gunnar Garfos, visited ALL 198 countries in the world by the time he turned 37-years old, which is a pretty big accomplishment if you ask us. 

So when people ask him to pick his favourite, you can imagine how difficult it is to pick just one.

However, Gunnar made a list for Business Insider and thinks that everyone should visit these 12 countries at least once in their lifetime:

1. Romania

"Transylvania, best known for its castles, mountains, and of course Dracula, will stun you. Not to forget the parties in the capital Bucharest. And Romanians even know how to make great beer."


2. Madagascar

"There is no doubt about the French having 'visited.' The gourmet options in Antananarivo are world class, until it comes to the bill. You will think they have forgotten most of what you ordered."

"The coastline, the lemurs, and the baobab trees will gobsmack you."


3. Iceland

"You know that big island in the middle of the Atlantic. It's been battered and beaten by winds and waves for a million years, and it is still there!"

"Just bring your swimming gear, and sit in 40 degrees hot natural springs while your hair will freeze and get covered by snow. Unreal."


4. Vietnam

"The definition of friendliness can be found here. Just remember not to let the hustle, bustle, and traffic stress you."

"Sit down, order a drink, relax, and watch. And do not forget to check out the Mekong Delta and its floating markets."


5. Kyrgyzstan

"Stunning nature, colourful markets, and very friendly people, unless they think you are an American pilot who is likely to run away with one of their beautiful girls. Bring a cup for world-class vodka."


6. Kiribati

"Paradise, like it used to be. There isn't much luxury, but the fantastic seafood and the hospitality you are likely to experience by locals make up for it, by far."


7. New Zealand

"Enjoy white, black, and golden beaches, any kind of water sports and activities you didn't know existed."


8. Nicaragua

"This is a very diverse country between Costa Rica and Honduras. You'll find legendary surf spots, incredible diving opportunities, and stunning nature."


9. Sierra Leone

"This paradise is on virtually no one's bucket list, but it should be if you are willing to challenge your comfort zone a tad. Expect amazing beaches, idyllic villages, and smiling people. Don't expect infrastructure."


10. Dominica

One of the least known islands of the "Caribbean so deserves to be seen by more people. Of course, that would take away some of the charm of the volcanoes, Boiling Lake, the hidden beaches, and the rainforest."


11. Norway

"The wild mountains, the twisting fjords, the unimaginable waterfalls, the magnificent glaciers, the tiny villages, and the midnight sun will leave you speechless."


12. Uruguay

"You know that country in between Argentina and Brazil? The second smallest country in South America is still rather undiscovered, although I have no idea why. The memo about the calm and relaxed, yet very exciting people must have gotten lost in the mail."


We bet Ed Sheeran didn't expect this when he opened a letter from an adoring fan. 

The 24-year-old singer bravely posted a handwritten note on Instagram which he received from a Korean fan during the latest leg of his world tour. 

The fan's note, which was accompanied with a t-shirt, read: "To Ed Sheeran (my great singer), I hope you love the shirt."

All is going well, until it continued with: "You are a little ugly but I love you!"

"Please wear this shirt and get some 2015 concert tour! From Lee Jaung In (your fan)."

A little bizarre yes, but Ed's trusty fans rushed to his side, giving him many words of wisdom.

"You are a beautiful soul", one user wrote, while many others called him "cute". 

Upon further inspection, it also transpires that the letter was actually written and delivered some six months ago, but it seems to be witnessing something of an online resurgence again – much to Mr Sheeran's amusement, we're sure. 



Hordes of screaming fans, thousands of miles from home and an epic world tour just kicking off – it’s no wonder that One Direction star Liam Payne broke down on stage.

The band were performing in Colombia, on the first date of their Where We Are tour, which will take them all over the world playing 69 dates.

It seems the experience was all a bit too much for poor Liam as he sobbed on stage during the love song You and I.

“I know Liam will probably be embarrassed by this but he cried a little we were singing You and I,” one fan pointed out on Twitter after the show.

“You cried during you and I? it’s my favorite song ever…” said another fan.

It seems Liam is feeling the pressure of embarking on the massive tour ahead of him.

He recently posted on Twitter that he had forgotten how “lonely” living in a hotel could be, before posting a sleepy selfie on the site saying he wished he could stay in bed!

But Liam’s fans are certainly the ones to pick him up when he’s feeling blue, as he tweeted after the Colombia performance that the show was, “The greatest experience of my life.”
