Leonardo DiCaprio Was Asked to Play Max in ‘Hocus Pocus’ : Links You Need to See

In case you’d like a soundtrack for the incoming deluge of links, Haim’s collabo with Calvin Harris is the perfect, fast-paced electro-anthem to help you feel a sense of deliberateness as you meander through this web of distraction. The song would also, of course, be great to dance to, but this simply isn’t the place for that, partially because: … Read More

Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’: I Guess This Is Growing Up

What a burden, to be Taylor Swift. She captured the hearts of the country world — arguably mainstream music’s most conservative genre — at the age of 16, some kind of songwriting prodigy whose lyrical vocabulary suggested she’d grown up reading the dictionary for fun. And then, eight years later: “Sorry, I changed my mind. All those CMAs are on a dusty shelf in my parents’ house in Nashville if you wanna come pick ‘em up.” … Read More

How to Taylor Swiftify Your Personal Brand in 12 Steps

Next week, Taylor Swift will release 1989, her fifth album and her “first documented pop album.” Swift announced the album back in August, but she’s been setting up her grown-ass reintroduction to the public for some time now.

She’s done it in a brilliant way, with distinct strategies that could be useful to a number of different creators. Let’s go through the 12 steps of Swiftian reinvention as it relates to one’s personal brand. … Read More

Taylor Swift and a Reevaluation of the “Basic Bitch” Craze: Links You Need to See

Today is all about the ladies. First of all, Taylor Swift released “Out of the Woods,” her latest single from her upcoming album 1989, and it’s amazing. Swift has said that 1989 is going to be a departure from her previous albums, and with “Out of the Woods,” that much is clear, even more so than from her previously released track, “Shake It Off” (actually, let’s not talk about that song). (Oh, and: Sally Holmes has a fun dissection of the lyrics of “Out of the Woods,” if you’re dying to know what it all means.) … Read More

Harry Styles Is Far From the Most Interesting Thing About Taylor Swift’s New Song “Out of the Woods”

Of all the songs on Taylor Swift’s new album, 1989 (out October 27), “Out of the Woods” is supposed to be among the rare few that shit-talk — specifically, it shit-talks an ex-boyfriend, who happens to be One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles. This will undoubtedly be the one thing people remember about “Out of the Woods” in those too-common instances when they remember only a single fact about a pop song. But it’s not what people should remember about the song, which currently sits at No. 1 on the iTunes chart just 12 hours after its release. (You can hear it here, if you don’t want to just pay the damn 99 cents for it.) … Read More
