What's trending

Taylor Swift accepted Travis Kelce's invite to Sundays' Chiefs - Bears game. The singer was spotted cheering on the tight end at Arrowhead Stadium next to Kelce's mother, Donna Kelce. Taylor, who's been rumored to be dating the NFL star, was even wearing a red-and-white Chiefs jacket.

Last week, Travis revealed that he invited Taylor to the game, saying, “I threw the ball in her court. 'I’ve seen you rock the stage in Arrowhead, you might have to come see me rock the stage in Arrowhead.’ We’ll see what happens in the near future.” Taylor watched Travis get a touchdown as he and the Chiefs blew away the Bears, 41 to 10.

Usher is headlining the 2024 Super Bowl Halftime Show! The singer, 44, will take the stage for the iconic halftime show, presented by Apple Music, at the Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada, during the big game on Feb. 11, 2024. In a video shared on X, formerly known as Twitter, announcing his upcoming gig, Usher gets an urgent call from Kim Kardashian, who tells the musician about his headlining spot. Usher's performance will mark his second Super Bowl appearance. He previously performed alongside the Black Eyed Peas when the group headlined the halftime show back in 2011. Last year, the show was headlined by Rihanna, who revealed that she was pregnant with her second baby with A$AP Rocky mid-performance.

After 146 days on the picket lines, the writer's strike in Hollywood might finally be coming to an end.  The 11,000 or so screenwriters represented by the Writers Guild of America came to a tentative agreement with entertainment companies on Sunday night. The new deal on the table includes increased compensation for streaming content, agreements on minimum staffing for television shows, and "guarantees that artificial intelligence technology will not encroach on writers’ credits and compensation." This news doesn't mean that Hollywood will go back right back to normal. There are still thousands of actors on strike looking for similar changes. The SAG-AFTRA union representing the actors has made no moves to reopen negotiations with studios.
