Taylor Swift Social Media Blackout Over: Posts Cryptic Snake Tweet
Taylor Swift wiped her social media sites clean over the weekend but her blackout didn’t last long. The singer just posted a cryptic video on Instagram and Twitter, featuring what appears to be the tail of a snake.
So far there’s no word on what the video is supposed to mean, although many still believe it’s a tease for new music. It is important to note, that Taylor’s social media sites were filled with snake emojis during the whole KimYe feud after Kim Kardashian called her a "snake," so maybe she wrote a song about it.
Meanwhile sources tell Us Weekly that Taylor's new single will be out on Friday, with an insider describing it as "poppy." As for her new album, the source adds, "She's being very secretive about it, but it's going to be a really good one." Other rumors claim the video for the song will also be out this week, with Taylor making an appearance at Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards, despite it being hosted by her enemy Katy Perry.
Harry Styles Getting BBC Special
Harry Styles is getting his very own BBC special. “Harry Styles at the BBC,” hosted by the singer’s good friend, BBC Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw, will tape in Manchester on August 30th and air on TV sometime in November.
In addition to performing his solo material, Harry is expected to sit down and chat about his career. "Harry is a great performer and full of so many wonderful stories about his extraordinary career, which he’ll be sharing with us,” Grimshaw said in a statement. “I can’t wait for this show.”
The BBC hosted a similar show back in 2015 with Adele. So far there’s no word on whether Harry’s special will air in the U.S.
Sales Of Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse Of The Heart” Skyrocket
The nation’s solar eclipse yesterday apparently got a lot of people in the mood to listen to Bonnie Tyler’s classic, “Total Eclipse of the Heart.”
According to preliminary Nielsen numbers, streams of the 1983 hit rose 67% from 55,768 streams the week of August 11th to 93,148 streams the week of August 18th. Not only that, the song was so popular that it actually eclipsed (pun intended) Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito” to take over the number one spot on iTunes. Apple sales of the tune were actually up 635% on August 18th.
