When Taylor Swiftdeleted all of her posts on social media, fans were shook. When she eclipsed the Solar Eclipse with her very meta snake video, fans were investigating. Now, Swift announced the dropping of a new song and album, and fans can’t control themselves.
Using her newly cleansed social media platforms, Swift confirmed the release of her new single, which is reportedly named “Timeless” but has yet to be verified, for Aug. 24 and the release of her new album, Reputation, for Nov. 10.
Fans have been waiting for a new album for 3 years — 1989 came out in 2014, and skyrocketed to No. 1, selling over 6 million copies in the U.S. Her last song, a duet with Zayn, “I Don’t Want To Live Forever,” peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 100 chart.
Obviously fans are freaking out.

In an interview with CinemaBlend, McGregor stated that he is at the perfect age to play Obi-Wan. “I’ve always thought there was a story to tell between my last one and Alec Guinness’ first one. It would be fun to film that story now I’m older. I’d be the right age. I’m 45. Alec Guinness was what, sixty? I could do two of them.”
Actor Alec Guinness was nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Ob-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: Episode IV—A New Hope.

Getting dropped off for the first time at college is momentous occasion for most people. The crowds of bright-eyed students and their happy, but nervous parents can be overwhelming for anyone, especially if you’re the President’s daughter.
Malia Obama arrived at Harvard University yesterday to crowds of students eager to meet her, and of course rub elbows with her dad, former President Barack Obama. With both her parents earning law degrees from Harvard, Obama is entering the esteemed school as part of the Class of 2021 after taking a gap year to intern with Harvey Weinstein as a script-reader.
Of course social media was in a frenzy, with fellow classmates and families of those classmates tweeting out pictures of her around campus.

Obama declined interviews politely and was seen mingling and getting to know other students, blending in as an average college student. Now while Obama can become friends with whoever she wants, most fans are hoping that she will meet and become best friends with actress/activist Yara Shahidi, who is also attending Harvard this fall.
Praying Malia Obama and Yara Shahidi find each other and grow as besties at Harvard. 😭
