TAYLOR SWIFT & ED SHEERAN DROP ‘END GAME’ MUSIC VIDEO BEHIND-THE-SCENES CLIP – (02/08/2018)

Taylor Swift teases Ed Sheeran in a funny behind-the-scenes clip from their “End Game” music video shoot. Swift took to Instagram to share the video with fans.

“I just want to start by saying that this is what he does, he tries to elevate himself geographically so he can seem better than me,” Taylor says, adding, “Experts will study this and say that you’re, like… peacocking right now.”

“It’s only because you wear f*cking heels all the time!” Ed exclaims, to which she shows off her flat sneakers and replies, “Look what I did for you today!”

Meanwhile, E! reports that Taylor just purchased an apartment for $9.75 million in New York’s Tribeca neighborhood, in the same building where she also owns an 8,000-square-foot penthouse. That makes a total of $50 million that Taylor’s spent on that one block.

In 2014, Taylor bought two units in the building for close to $20 million and merged them together, creating a massive nine-bedroom, nine-bathroom penthouse. Then, in September of 2017, she purchased a 5,000-square-foot townhouse right by the apartment building for $18 million. That property features a fitness center, a theater and heated floors, among other amenities.

And Taylor’s New York real estate is just one part of a portfolio that also includes homes in Beverly Hills, Rhode Island and Nashville.

However, the star won’t be spending much time at all her properties in the coming months: her Reputation tour kicks off in May.

BRITNEY SPEARS’ SON IS A ‘LIL’ MOZART’ IN NEW VIDEO – (02/08/2018)

Britney Spears took to Instagram on Wednesday to show off her son’s impressive piano skills. “He’s never had a lesson a day in his life, so needless to say I started tearing up like a proud mom!” Spears gushed in the caption.

While it’s unclear whether its elder son Sean Preston or her younger son Jayden James, it’s clear that musical talent runs in the family.

Meanwhile, Britney will be honored with the Fragrance Of The Year Award for her Fantasy In Bloom fragrance at the 2018 Hollywood Beauty Awards.

Ron Rolleston, Revlon’s Executive Vice President of Global Fragrance Marketing, will present the award to Britney at the black tie dinner gala on February 25th at Avalon Hollywood. The event will also benefit the Helen Woodward Animal Center.

JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE TO OPEN POP-UP MERCH SHOP THIS WEEKEND IN NYC – (02/08/2018)

Justin Timberlake is opening up his own pop-up merch store in New York from Friday to Sunday. Unlike those who have come before him, JT’s store will feature a total of 16 different brand collaborations, each paired with a song off of his just-released Man of the Woods album.

While the exact location of the store is still unknown, the participating brands and times have been released, with the store set to open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. [ET] on Friday and Saturday and from noon to 6 p.m. [ET] on Sunday.

Among the collaborations, there are two pairs of limited-edition Air Jordans – tied to the song “Higher, Higher.” The singer wore one of the red, black and marble pairs during his Super Bowl halftime show this past Sunday.

For the Pharrell-produced “Filthy,” there’s a T-shirt collaboration with Heron Preston, the streetwear designer behind Dave Chappelle’s merchandise from the comedian’s Radio City Music Hall stint last year. The brand collaborations also coincide with the more woodsy aspects of his album, with three different sunglasses from Warby Parker, two separate jackets made by Levi’s, and a cooler from Yeti.

All merchandise on his online store is currently sold-out, so this may be fans’ only chance to grab some gear before he sets off on his world tour, which kicks off in Toronto on March 13th and continues into its European leg starting in the summer.
