“Shake It Off” is the lead single of Taylor Swift’s upcoming fifth studio-release entitled ‘1989’. It is an interesting choice for a first track from her much awaited latest effort as it does not have any hints or reminders of Country music in it at all. Neither does it sound like a mature track that would have been meant for the adult-pop realm.

Meryl Streep shot some of her scenes in “The Giver” while she was filming Rob Marshall’s star-studded screen musical, “Into The Woods,” where she sings Stephen Sondheim’s brooding melodies as the vengeful Witch.
Taylor Swift admits that her role as a girl with no feelings in “The Giver” is a stretch. “Emotion is an important part of my life and job. People wouldn’t listen to my songs if they weren’t heartbroken, hurt, jilted, sad, bitter … all those wonderful things that I write about.”
Police in Rhode Island say they arrested three people outside Taylor Swift’s beachfront home after they accosted security guards at the singer’s property.

In fact, the “1D” show has added a second performance—due to popular demand!
