Don’t call her Tay Tay. It’s DOCTOR Tay Tay from now on, thankyouverymuch. According to Billboard, New York University has awarded Taylor Swift with an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts degree, presumably for her groundbreaking papers titled Haters Gonna Hate: A Compendium of Clap Backs and Complaints and Cottage to the Core: Vintage Rural Aesthetics for Modern Suburban Girls. Taylor, who never attended college, also gave the commencement speech at today’s ceremony at Yankee Stadium celebrating the graduating classes of 2020, 2021, and 2022.
Things got scary when a structure collapsed at a Backstreet Boys concert in Oklahoma yesterday, dropping a metal awning on concert-goers. At least 14 people were injured, according to ET. No deaths or serious injuries were reported. There’s probably a lame joke here about Backstreet Boy Howie Donough’s gas blowing down the pavilion but a total of 10 ambulances reportedly showed up so we’ll put a pin in such a childish supposition for now.
