Taylor Swift Finally Found Someone To Play Scrabble With

Taylor Swift has a lot of things going for her, but apparently, a reliable Scrabble partner is hard to come by. The GRAMMY-winning Pop star is a big fan of the word game, even tweeting about it back in 2012.


Swift even takes Scrabble on the road with her and has spoken about playing while out on tour. In 2014, Swift tweeted about how everyone is suddenly busy when she wants to have a Scrabble tournament.


While sharing a behind the scenes video for the “End Game” music video, Swift’s phone makes a sound, and she excitedly exclaims “He played me in Scrabble!” She then goes on to explain “It’s a very tight game” before deciding now might not be the best time to make her next move, “No, I can wait, I can wait. I’ll make him wait. I’ll make him sweat it out.”

Could Swift’s beau, Joe Alwyn be the one she’s playing Scrabble with? Love Stories really do come true. 🙂


Taylor Swift Teams Up With Ed Sheeran + Future in “End Game” Music Video!

Taylor Swift has been pretty quiet since her latest album release, towards the end of 2017, but that hasn’t stopped her from dominating the charts and release next level music videos. Her newest release “End Game” features pop star Ed Sheeran and rapper Future who are also featured on the song!



The video takes place in multiple locations, Miami, Tokyo, and London! Swift first appears in the video, pulling back the curtains in each city. We are then taken to Miami where Swift and Future are rolling in the high life, on fancy yachts and expensive cars as they party about the town.



We then find Sheeran in Tokyo. We have so many questions about what he is doing in Tokyo, but it looks like fun. Who wouldn’t want to go to Tokyo with your best friend and play Dance Dance Revolution, ride motorcycles and eat everything in sight? Sometimes you just need to escape the pressures of life and run away for a year, just like Sheeran and his girl did, where Sheeran didn’t even post on social media!



We shoot over to London, where Swift is drinking champagne, playing a snake game on her phone, riding in double-decker buses and having the time of her life. Don’t worry, Sheeran is there too, which makes sense since he is from the UK!



There were also a ton of hidden messages in the video. Even a shout out to her boyfriend Joe Alwyn and his brother Patrick.


What did we learn from this video? Swift can travel the world without being noticed, she’s doing better than she ever was, and she sees everything. Shade noted.

Earlier this year when a makeup artist tweeted he was “wearing Taylor Swift’s skin” while in a snake-skin outfit, referencing her recently being called a snake by haters. Swift used the same outfit he posted and wore it in the music video. Well played Swift, well-played.

It was also named the top 7th album of the year by Rollingstone. The performance marked the first live performance of “End Game” and it was definitely a highlight of the night!

The set started with “…Ready For It?” and the dance moves were fierce!

She then proceeded to “Blank Space” cuz we’re young and we’re reckless, we’ll take this way too far.

What would a set list be without including the massive hit “Shake It Off” haters gonna hate!!

Although two former members of One Direction were performers last night, Zayn was not one of them, so Swift performed “I Don’t Want To Live Forever” on her own! She also mentioned how it was just nominated for a GRAMMY!

Next, Sheeran joined Swift for a verse on “End Game” which was such an amazing surprise we should have seen coming!

Swift ended her set with her 1st single off Reputation “Look What You Made Me Do” which has already hit #1.


It was a great night to remember and it continues again tonight at Poptopia! Let’s see what round two brings!!
