Christmas comes early in the wizarding world as the Pottermore newsletter revealed that J.K. Rowling is dropping new writing this holiday season. In case you aren't a member of the website, the newsletter said that starting December 12, they'll be dropping festive surprises through the #PottermoreChristmas event on Facebook and new writing by the Harry Potter author "from Florean Fortescue's ghost plot to J.K. Rowling’s thoughts on the sneaky Slytherin Draco Malfoy, there's a wealth of writing to discover." Make sure you join Pottermore now to join in on all the wizarding fun.

5 Seconds of Summer realeased the new music video for their cover of "What I Like About You," which they recorded at The Forum in Los Angeles. The song will be part of their Live SOS album set for release this year. Be honest, how many times have you watched the video!

Taylor Swift's camp has put to rest all rumors that the singer was caught getting cozy with model BFF, Karlie Kloss, at a concert of The 1975. Tay's reps called the rumors hilarious because turns out the 2 were just trying to listen to each other over the loud music.

We know we said 5 things, but we just got the best news today! #1DWorldManila is opening next week, December 16 at the SM Megamall. The official One Direction Facebook page broke the news earlier today and we can't wait. We wonder, though, if this is the same as the One Direction Cafe which opened in Japan earlier this year. Are you heading there today? BRB because we're on our way! See you there!
