Taylor Swift, a woman who once allegedly used a huge suitcase as a form of paparazzi-dodging transportation, is nothing if not cunning. The once saccharine pop star has slowly evolved into the calculated queen of the long game. Her machinations range from admirably extra (buying a house next door to the Kennedy compound in a thinly veiled attempt to marry a Kennedy) to just too much (the “I heart T.S.” tank top). And that’s just her personal life—when it comes to professional supremacy, Taylor Swift outsmarts every one of her competitors. She has more hits, receives more press (good and bad), and will threaten to sue the shit out of any Etsy seller who gets in her way. Most importantly, Taylor Alison Swift has way more UPS trucks with her face on them than any of her peers. While the foundation of Swift’s success is her ability to write good songs that speak to the middle-school loser in all of us, her fame feeds on a regular diet of romantic gossip and … [Read more...] about Is Taylor Swift Kicking Kanye and Kim While They’re Down?
The best thing about Prism is that it sounds exactly like a Katy Perry album. That’s also, as it happens, all you need to know to determine whether or not you’ll enjoy Prism, as the album is—just as 2010’s hit Teenage Dream was—a prolonged, sometimes silly, always catchy “you go girl” proclamation. But if Teenage Dream purred, Prism roars. Perry is a pop general, perched atop a candy rainbow, bathing her army of fans in an elixir of empowerment. Does Prism mark a more mature Perry? Sure, at least thematically. On “By the Grace of God,” she sings about contemplating suicide. Is it a more spiritual Perry? Why not. “Legendary Lovers” has her cooing at her man over sitar backing to “say my name like a scripture.” But is Prism, as it has been hyped by its musical masterminds, the debut of a creatively all-grown-up Perry? Not to burst anyone’s bubblegum bubble, but it’s not. That’s something to be … [Read more...] about ‘Prism’ Review: Katy Perry Perfects the Pop Blockbuster
The ranks of the unbeaten were thinned out even more Tuesday night. Louisville, Maryland and Butler all lost for the first time, falling to Texas Tech, Penn State and Baylor, respectively. That left just five undefeated teams in all of Division I. There are also four teams that haven't won a game yet. Here's a look at each of the remaining teams that are either unbeaten or winless. First, the undefeated five: OHIO STATE Record: 9-0 AP Rank: 3 Pomeroy Rank: 1 Best Start Since: 2013-14. The Buckeyes started 15-0 but did not ultimately have a great season, losing in their NCAA Tournament opener as a No. 6 seed. Highlight So Far: Ohio State won 74-49 at North Carolina in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, handing the Tar Heels their most lopsided home loss under Roy Williams. Why They're Unbeaten: Kaleb Wesson is a force, averaging 14.1 points and 9.3 rebounds a game, and the Buckeyes are holding opponents to 33.3% shooting. Upcoming Challenge: Ohio State faces Kentucky on Dec. 21 in Las Vegas. … [Read more...] about A look at who is unbeaten or winless in college basketball
President Donald Trump gestures as he arrives at a campaign rally in Hershey, Pa., Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2019. (AP Photo/Matt Rourke) Good morning and welcome to Fox News First. Here's what you need to know as you start your Wednesday ... Trump, at Pennsylvania rally, says 'stupid' impeachment indirectly led to USMCA dealsaw a "silver lining" in his impeachment: Democrats approved the historic U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) to replace NAFTA because they're embarrassed by their own impeachment "witch hunt."

And, the reason they announced it on the same day, one hour later, they announced impeachment ... you know why? It plays down the impeachment, because they're embarrassed by impeachment, and our poll … [Read more...] about Trump says Dems approved USMCA deal because they’re ’embarrassed’ by impeachment ‘witch hunt’
