Taylor Teasing New Music!

Taylor Teasing New Music!

Taylor Swift seems to counting down to something big!  She posted a picture of seven palm trees on Instagram, then posted a picture of her sitting on the sixth step of a staircase the next day, and the following day posted a picture that has five diamonds.  Is a picture representing the number 4 next?!  And if so, what are we counting down to?  New music?  It would be her seventh album.

Ratings for Sunday night’s Oscars were up 11% from last year.  29.6 million people tuned in, up from 26.5 in 2018.  It’s the first increase in viewership since 2014.  Despite the increase, it was still the second smallest audience in the show’s history.

Lady Gaga made history Sunday night when she won the Oscar for best Original Song!  She is the first woman ever to win an Oscar, Grammy, Golden Globe, and BAFTA all in the same year.

Meantime, it looks like Gaga and Madonna are finally friends!  Madonna has blamed Gaga in the past for ripping off her music, but she hosts a huge Oscar after-party every year and Gaga was not only invited, but they posted a picture together!

Ariana Grande will return to Manchester to perform for the first time since a terror attack at her concert there two years ago.  She will headline the Manchester Pride Live event in August.  She also recently posted about making her concerts safer.

Meantime, Ariana is now the most followed woman on Instagram.  She has surpassed Selena Gomez with 146 million followers.  But that’s still ten million shy of the most followed man on Instagram, soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo.
