Taylor Swift may not be plastered all over the social mediascape the way that Kim Kardashian is, but she does have a very strong presence. Something like 51 million followers, making her Twitter's fourth largest account. And there's 20 million on Instagram.
Yesterday, Taylor's Instagram and Twitter accounts were hacked, making it one of the largest hacks to date.
Not a distinction anyone wants, but it looks like it was caught quickly - thanks to a fan and fellow musician who let Taylor know something wasn't right...
Here are four weird things that make you seem smarter, according to science:
1. Walk at the same speed as other people. A study in 2007 found that when you walk faster OR slower than the people around you, you're seen as being less intelligent and competent than when you walk at the same pace.
2. Avoid alcohol. And not just because you're dumber when you've been drinking. A 2013 study found that just HOLDING a drink makes you seem less intelligent.
3. Use your middle initial. In a study last year, people's writing samples were rated more favorably when a middle initial was included in their byline.
4. Avoid using big words. Which is weird, because you'd think big words would make you seem smarter. But a study in 2006 found the opposite is true. SIMPLE writing makes you seem more intelligent than jamming in a bunch of words no one knows.
Good Snowy Tuesday! Hope you are having a great day ... LOVING this snow. Wish we had more of it. Maybe on Sunday? I heard that more could be heading our way. YEH BABY!
Here's what's happening HollyWood ...
Blink 182 has split up ... well, more like 1 of the guys quit! After 23 years together, Mark Hoppus & Travis Barker released a statement last night that Tom Delonge had quit the band. Tom however claimed via Instagram that he had not quit. It's basically a HE SAID/HE SAID ... 2 of the guys say Tom is hard to work with & not willing to record new material in the studio. Tom says that's not true & he looks forward to touring again. For now ... it's just Blink 2. Not 3.
Speaking of music - British Pop Star Sam Smith has settled a complaint with Rock icon Tom Petty. Tom claims Sam ripped off his 'Won't Back Down' song for the 'Stay with Me' jam. Both sound eeeeeerily similar. They do! But Sam said it's just a coincidence. I guess it was more than that ... and some attorneys were involved ... because Tom is now listed as a CO WRITE on Sam's song. #Awkward
Kim Kardashian sat down for a One on One interview with 'Entertainment Tonight' and she alluded that her step-dad Bruce Jenner might be revealing 'he is a she'. The interview will air tonight. Kim hints that Bruce is "on a journey ... in a really happy place ... and will share his truth soon". All signs point to maybe he will admit he is into dressing as a woman? I really don't care or care to judge. Whatever makes you happy BJ!
