The movie, titled Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour, is set to premiere on October 13th across the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

Nicki Minaj, 21 Savage & Snoop Dogg Are Coming To Season 5 Of Call Of Duty

Doja Cat Teases New Album With Cover Art & A New Single
Gearing up to release her upcoming album, Scarlet, Doja Cat drops new single “Demons”, along with a horror-themed teaser of the music video counterpart. The new track follows singles “Attention” and “Paint The Town Red”, taking a different—maybe creepier—approach in creative direction than was used to following Planet Her and Hot Pink, which has stirred quite the controversy in her comments. Personally, I’m here for it. Doja Cat’s star quality always seems to shine through and never fails to deliver memorable lines. The video features OG Wednesday, Christina Ricci, and is filled with easter eggs referencing horror movies such as The Shining and a Julie Driscoll “Season of the Witch” inspired makeup look, creating an early spooky-season vibe. This week, she also unveiled an updated cover for the upcoming album that features a pair of arachnids with orblike pink bodies locking lips.
