If you attended a Taylor Swift concert recently then your face could have been scanned to detect if you are a Taylor Swift stalker.
During Swift’s 2018 “Reputation” tour a kiosk showing rehearsal footage from Swift’s Rose Bowl and Madison Square Garden performance used facial recognition software that took a picture of the concertgoer as they viewed the rehearsal footage.
The pictures were then sent to a control center in Nashville where they were analyzed. There’s no word on if concertgoers own the images or how long the pictures will be kept at the control center.
Do you think this is a good idea to keep artists safe or is it an invasion of a person’s privacy?

Lip injections, botox, and vampire facials, people are always doing something to achieve the perfect look.
The newest trend in beauty is freckle tattoos.
A characteristic that was previously covered with makeup is now being admired and envied in some circles.
A shift in the idea of natural beauty is said to be a driving factor behind the desire for the look of the moment.
People are paying to have them permanently tatted on or are drawing them on with makeup.
A tattoo artist in New York said she started doing the procedure after getting daily requests.
The tattoos usually last about a year before they begin to fade depending on the amount of time spent in the sunlight.
She also noted that some people with natural freckles are coming in to get them tattooed so they will look even more prominent.

Apparently doing forced chores constituted an emergency in her book.
Police said that although this incident may seem humorous false calls are no laughing matter and take time and resources away from responding to actual emergencies.

Ariana Grande had to cool off her fans after they thought she was rekindling her romance with Ricky Alvarez. They dated for about a year in 2015 and 2016. Grande mentions Alvarez in her song, thank u, next.
It all started on Monday when Alvarez posted a pic on Instagram. Ricky was wearing a mustard-colored sweater. He captioned the photo, "Ready for it."
Grande got into the comments and said, "These colors are sick." That's all she said. That was enough to get people wondering if Ariana was being flirty with her ex.
Grande squashed the chatter by commenting back, "We're friends. Everyone take a big ol breather."
Have your online comments ever been mistaken as being flirtatious? Do you think there is any chance Grande would go back to dating Alvarez?

The top YouTube music videos of 2018 had a distinct flavor or “Sabor!”
Eight of the top 10 worldwide music videos were in Spanish. Three of them featured latin artist Ozuna.
The #1 spot went to Nicky Jam, Bad Bunny and Ozuna for their remix of “Te Boté.” The video had 1.45 billion views.
Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito,” was #1 last year and still holds the record as the most-viewed YouTube video of all time with over 5.7 billion views.
The two English videos that made the cut this year were Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You” (feat. Cardi B) and Drake’s “God’s Plan.”
Ariana Grande’s "Thank U, Next" video earned a record for the most views in 24-hours but didn’t make the cut.
What was your favorite music video of the year?

Do you believe these rumors? Have you ever unfollowed someone you were cool with because of their other friends? How do you feel when you find out someone has unfollowed you on social media?
