Tom Brady attacked the Kansas City Chiefs for their newfound fan base of Taylor Swift supporters during the Netflix comedy special 'The Roast of Tom Brady'. The 46-year-old NFL quarterback attacked Patrick Mahomes and his team on their newly found fan following, claiming that the majority of Arrowhead Stadium's attendees are Swifties, or supporters of Travis Kelce's girlfriend Taylor Swift.

Brady remarked, "Kansas City, you say your stadium is the loudest. It helps when your fans are 14-year-old girls… And in honor of TayTay, let's take a look at the Chiefs Eras; Terrible for 50 years, good for five. SHAKE IT OFF," with a nod to Swift's famous song and Eras Tour.

On Friday, May 3, Kendrick Lamar surprised his fans by dropping '6:16 in LA'. He released this second diss tune, shortly after releasing 'Euphoria', his eagerly anticipated response to Drake's 'Push Ups' and 'Taylor Made Freestyle'. Although Lamar's obvious disdain for Drake is evident in the new song, it also discreetly challenges some of the Swiftian jabs Drake made in his first two tracks.

Fans noticed that Swift's longstanding collaborators and closest friends, Jack Antonoff and Sounwave, were named by Genius as cowriters and producers for '6:16 in LA', shortly after the song's online release. It seems that Lamar's choice to bring on Antonoff and Sounwave for '6:16 in LA' was an answer to the several instances where Drake alluded to Swift in his first two diss singles.

Author Frances Osborne in the spotlight after Taylor Swift's 'The Tortured Poets Department'

Author Frances Osborne was thrust into the unusual role of delving deeply into internet fan theories once Taylor Swift's 'The Tortured Poets Department' was released. This is because it is commonly believed that Swift's song 'The Bolter' was inspired by her great-grandmother Idina Sackville.

Many of Swift's songs seem to be inspired by her own romantic experiences but 'The Bolter' is about a lady rather than a boyfriend. On the back, her face is seen in close-up, along with the lyrics, "You don’t get to tell me about sad." Despite all of its bustle, Sackville's life was unavoidably depressing, as per Frances Osborne.

According to data from Luminate that was initially reported in Billboard, Taylor Swift's 'The Tortured Poets Department' returned as the No. 1 album in the United States in its second week of release, clocking in at 439,000 album-equivalent sales. That represents an 89% decrease from its record-breaking first week of sales of 2.61 million units.

However, the 439K is still far more than any other album has earned in a week in 2024, making it the second-best total of the year thus far. Furthermore, 'TTPD's second-week total is the best of any album in the last nine years. Adele's '25' achieved 1.162 million in its second week of release in 2015, the last time an album performed any better in its second session.
