The sales numbers are in for Taylor Swift's album, 1989! In its first week, the album sold 1.287 million copies. Here are a few records T-Swizzle broke that week, according to Billboard.com:  

  1. 1989 is the biggest-selling album released in 2014.
  2. It is also the 2nd largest-selling album of 2014, following the soundtrack of Frozen.
  3. It also holds the record for largest sales in one week since Eminem's The Eminem Show in 2002.

As a thank you, the singer posted this video message on her Instagram. Congratulations, Taylor!

 

Listen to Chvrches' song, "Dead Air," for the Lorde-curated soundtrack of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. While the movie is set to premiere in theaters on November 21, MCA Music is releasing the soundtrack on the 17th. And don't forget, you guys, that Chvrches is performing here this month. Deets of their concert here.

The final trailer for Annie, starring Jamie Foxx and Quvenzhane Wallis, is here. Are you excited to watch this family movie when it hits theaters on January 8, 2015?

Remember #AlexFromTarget? Alex appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier today and talked about how weird the whole situation was for him. Watch it here. That's how famous he is! But before his TV appearance, there's a bit of controversy. Breakr (a company with the tagline "helping connect fans to their fandom") said that #AlexFromTarget is just a social media experiment—even saying that Abbie (@Ausculum), the first person to tweet about it, Alex himself, and Target worked on this with them. Target spoke up about this and made it clear that this wasn't some sort of marketing strategy or even a social media experiment.
