Did Katy Knock Taylor on “Idol?”

Did Katy Knock Taylor on “Idol?”

Witness: The Tour - Atlanta

Did Katy compliment or diss Taylor Swift?  On last night’s episode of “American Idol,” Luke Bryan asked an auditioner whom he looked up to as an artist, and he responded, “Sorry, Katy, Taylor Swift.”  Katy replied, “Oh, you don’t have to be sorry!”  The contestant then said he loved Taylor, to which Katy said, “I love her as a songwriter, as well.”  Katy and Taylor have, of course, been feuding publicly for a long time now.  She didn’t say she loved Taylor; she only said she liked her as a songwriter.  Shade, you think?

Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt got together for an incredible duet mixing two signature tracks from their shows, “Hamilton” and “Dear Evan Hansen.”  The mash-up of “The Story of Tonight” and “You Will Be Found” sends a musical message to the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.  A portion of the track’s proceeds will go to the March for Our Lives on Saturday.  Miranda said in a statement, “This song is my way of helping to raise funds and awareness for their efforts, and to say ‘Thank you,’ and that we are with you so let’s keep fighting together.”  Platt added, “Better gun control is something that all Americans should be passionate about…I hope that this song can play some small part in bringing about real change.”

Disney is reportedly working on a live action remake of “Lady and the Tramp.”  The remake will not hit theaters, but it will be released on the company’s digital streaming service, set to launch in 2019.
