    Is Taylor Swift the last hope for Biden’s flailing presidency? Rob Reiner seems to think so. Rob Reiner is begging Taylor Swift to publicly endorse President Joe Biden’s reelection bid, saying he’d “give anything” for the pop star to make an announcement. Swift has remained conspicuously silent on the 2024 presidential election, after endorsing Biden four years ago. The singer must weigh the damage such an endorsement would do to her personal brand at a time when 81-year-old Biden is facing record-low popularity, especially among young Democrats, millions of whom have soured on his presidency. “I’d give anything for her...
  • Taylor Swift's Father Escapes Charge Over Alleged Australia Assault

    Taylor's Swift's father will not be charged over accusations he assaulted a paparazzo in Australia. Ben McDonald, 51, told police Scott Swift, 72, struck him in the face on a Sydney wharf on 27 February. He did not need medical help. A spokesperson for Swift at the time said two people had been behaving aggressively towards the megastar. After a month-long investigation, New South Wales police on Tuesday said no further action would be taken.

    Global bank messaging network SWIFT is planning a new platform in the next one to two years to connect the wave of central bank digital currencies now in development to the existing finance system.. The move, which would be one of the most significant yet for the nascent CBDC ecosystem given SWIFT's key role in global banking, is likely to be fine-tuned to when the first major ones are launched. 90% of the world's central banks are now exploring digital versions of their currencies. Most don't want to be left behind by bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, but are grappling with...

    Get out and vote. That was Taylor Swift’s message ahead of Super Tuesday as she urged everyone to back their chosen parties’ respective presidential primaries. “Today, March 5, is the Presidential Primary in Tennessee and 16 other states and territories. I wanted to remind you guys to vote the people who most represent YOU into power,” she wrote in an Instagram story. “If you haven’t already, make a plan to vote today.” “Whether you’re in Tennessee or somewhere else in the US, check your polling places and times at vote.org,” she added.

    Did she know he was trouble? America, brace for impact: It looks like the romance of the century (wink wink) may already be over. The once-sparkling future of our prom king and queen, the football star and the head cheerleader, has almost certainly been dashed by one very public rage explosion, drunken disorder, and a spectacularly insensitive decision to party hard after a mass shooting at his Super Bowl parade. Mere hours after 22 fans were shot — nine children among them, a young mother dead — Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce thought it was a great idea...

    Hillary Clinton, Travis Kelce It appears that former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, was tuning in for the Super Bowl between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers, as she shared a direct message to tight end Travis Kelce, who is currently dating Taylor Swift, in the aftermath. Clinton, who was the first lady between 1993 and 2001 while her husband, Bill Clinton, was president of the United States, took to X after the Chiefs cinched their Super Bowl win, writing, "Congratulations to Taylor's boyfriend—and the entire Kansas City Chiefs community! 💕🏈.

    She previously sold a smaller Dassault Falcon 50 jet in 2020, after she purchased it in 2012 for $4million. Swift donated the proceeds to charity. It is unclear if Swift is planning to upgrade her fleet just in time for the longest leg of her international tour starts – jetting to Australia to perform on February 16. This comes as it was revealed Swift's lawyers sent a letter to Jack Sweeney, 21, demanding that he stop logging her flights and locations. Sweeney, a junior at the University of Central Florida, has run several accounts that track the flight paths of...

    Taylor Swift has drawn criticism over a cease-and-desist letter her lawyers sent a college student who uses publicly available flight data to track her private jet usage. As Breitbart News reported, the target of the threatened law suit runs social media accounts that follow her and other celebrities’ private jets to measure their carbon pollution levels — with Swift calling the issue a matter of “life or death.” Jack Sweeney, 21, received the missive in December which declared the 14-time Grammy award winner would “have no choice but to all legal remedies” if the accused did not stop his “stalking...

    The Super Bowl always draws crowds to betting windows and online sports books, but some of the most talked about action this year will leave a blank space in Las Vegas. With in-person sports books limited to action on the field, Adam Burns, the sports book manager for BetOnline.ag, found himself capitalizing on the moment by preparing odds for a flood of unusual wagers: What sort of outfit will Taylor Swift wear to the game on Sunday? Will the CBS broadcast show her holding a beverage or giving high-fives? Will she cry if the Kansas City Chiefs lose to the...

    In the latest issue of Billboard, Swift offered a peek into her business acumen, sharing some advice for anyone looking to follow in her trailblazing path. “The piece of advice I would give to the other executives on this list is that the best ideas are usually ones without industry precedent,” Swift told Billboard. “The biggest crossroads moments of my career came down to sticking to my instincts when my ideas were looked at with skepticism. When someone says to me, ‘But that has never been done successfully before,’ it fires me up. We have to take strategic risks every...

    Getting into the Super Bowl is one thing. Landing your private jet in Las Vegas? It’s the kind of long shot that no bookie would give you odds on. The city is officially fully booked for private jets over Super Bowl weekend — with San Francisco tech billionaires among those scrambling to beat the lock-out after the 49ers qualified Sunday night to take on the Kansas City Chiefs. Slots at Harry Reid Airport in the city for Sunday night take-offs, to let attendees get home after the match have gone. Now one percenters are freaking out. “A colleague of mine...

    New York CNN — Right-wing media is burning red at Taylor Swift. With the Kansas City Chiefs headed to Super Bowl LVIII, influential MAGA Media personalities have started circulating conspiracy theories about the pop superstar, promoting the deranged notion that she is part of a sprawling psychological operations plot staged by the NFL and Democratic Party to deliver the 2024 presidential election to President Joe Biden. The attacks on Swift have been steadily building for weeks (see Fox News host Jesse Watters asking on his prime time program earlier this month if Swift is a “Pentagon asset,” for example),...

    An alleged stalker from Seattle was arrested outside Taylor Swift’s home on Monday – just two days after he was detained while loitering near the mega-pop star’s Big Apple residence, police and law enforcement sources said. The suspect, identified as David Crowe, was sporting an unkempt beard and long brown hair while wandering around the “Shake It Off” singer’s home and inquiring with people whether Swift lives there, sources told The Post. A member of Swift’s security team notified police officers who were patrolling the area, according to sources and the NYPD.

After a rosy start to their fairytale romance, Kelce and Swift reportedly had their first lovers' tiff after the Chiefs' loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Christmas Day. The celebrity super-couple have dominated headlines ever since Swift publicly confirmed their relationship by rocking up at Arrowhead to watch Kelce in action for the very first time.

    After a record-breaking year for Taylor Swift, the pop star attended a Gaza fundraiser with celebrity friend Selena Gomez in December. The event was hosted by Ramy Youssef on his tour “Ramy Youssef: More Feelings.” While the comedian traveled to several major cities such as Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia during the standup tour, Swift’s and Gomez’s presence at his Brooklyn, N.Y., show stirred public controversy as tensions continue to rise in the Middle East. Partway through his tour, Youssef announced on Instagram that “100 percent of the proceeds for the remainder of the ramy youssef: more feelings standup tour will...

    Taylor Swift’s performative activism is getting tiresome — and transparently hypocritical. Now that she is the Democrats’ official cultural vector for promoting their left-wing agenda, the mega pop star has become more than ubiquitous. She is being forcibly crammed down everyone’s throats. Her media saturation level is somewhere near Hurricane Katrina. Even NFL fans who just want to enjoy the game have no choice but to watch Clockwork Orange-style as she cheers on her Kansas City Chiefs boyfriend in cringeworthy style. The good news is that the more overexposed Swift gets, the greater her political hypocrisy shines through her media-crafted...

    Israeli government spokesman Eylon Levy said Thursday that the State of Israel would welcome a visit by singer Taylor Swift and any other celebrities who wished to educate themselves about what Hamas terrorists did to Israelis in the October 7 terror attack. “We welcome visits by all leaders and influential figures” who want to see the extent of the atrocities, said Levy, when asked about whether Israel would welcome a visit by Swift. Swift, who won Time magazine’s “Person of the Year” award for 2023, and who turned 34 on Wednesday, attended a fundraiser for a charity aiding Gaza this...
