After months of being MIA, Taylor Swift finally made an appearance via a video she took and addressed to Oklahoma City Thunder's Russell Westbrook. Russell, who happens to be a big fan of Taylor, was awarded Most Valuable Player at the NBA Awards and the video was some sort of special shout out from Tay. In it, she shares the story about how she basically taught the MVP how to play ball and how he has inspired her to write "Shake it Off"—even if they've never met. Ever. LOL! TBH, we don't know how we survived months without updates from the kween herself and this hilarious video just proves that nothing has changed—she's still the same 'ol Taylor we know and love.

As you already know, Riverdale Season 2 is already in the works, but you're probably not prepared for this: A wedding is happening! We found snaps of Camila Mendes who plays Veronica Lodge wearing a wedding gown (!!!), KJ Apa (Archie) and Cole Sprouse (Jughead) wearing kilts, and Lili Reinhart (Betty), Ashley Murray (Josie), and Madelaine Petsch (Cheryl) wearing bridesmaid's dresses. While we're convinced it's only a dream sequence, we can't help but think it's the real deal especially since you never really know what could happen at Riverdale. (via justjarredjr.com)
Louis Tomlinson talked about One Direction in a way that caught us off guard. In an interview with The Guardian, Louis admitted that he questioned his contribution to the band at one point, especially during the times they were on The X Factor where he never really sung solo. "When you actually think about how that feels, standing on stage every single week, thinking: 'What have I really done to contribute here? Sing a lower harmony that you can't really hear in the mix?'" He went on to discuss his band mates saying, "The others have always been… Like Niall, for example. He's the most lovely guy in the world. Happy-go-lucky Irish, no sense of arrogance. And he's fearless. There are times I've thought: 'I'd have a bit of that.' Zayn, back in the day. He could relate to me on a nerves level. In the first year we were both the least confident. But Zayn has a fantastic voice and for him it was always about owning that. Liam always had a good stage presence, same as Harry, they've both got that ownership. Harry comes across very cool. Liam's all about getting the crowd going, doing a bit of dancing," he explained. "And then there's me," he added. Aww, Louis! It's a good thing he doesn't feel the same way anymore, otherwise, Directioners around the world would def disagree!
