Late Show with David Letterman was Taylor Swift's latest stop on her 1989 media tour Tuesday night.

According to the Evening Standard, the candidate, David Lammy, wants to honor current cultural icons who hail from London's outer boroughs.

Even though it often seems she is, even Taylor Swift can't be everywhere at once. Good thing she's got two new wax figures of herself making their debuts this week at Madame Tussauds.
On Monday, a new figure of Taylor was unveiled at Madame Tussauds' Hollywood location. On Tuesday, a completely different figure made its debut at the museum's Washington, D.C. location. The figure shows the singer wearing high heels, a ruby-red sequined top and black shorts, and she's holding her "Taylor" acoustic/electric guitar. Her hair is in bangs, but it's longer, not her recent, shorter 'do.
Taylor's had a…

Clean Bandit's breakout smash "Rather Be" is a very romantic song, but the group says when they wrote it initially, they never planned for it to be a love song. In fact, it was their co-writer -- who isn't even the band -- who turned the song into a tribute to his future wife.
The members of Clean Bandit wrote the music for "Rather Be," but the lyrics were written by one member, Jack Patterson, and another guy called Jimmy Napes. "He's a lyricist. He wrote [Disclosure's hit] 'Latch' and other songs," says Clean Bandit's Grace Chatto. "And we've kinda…
Sam Smith has been racking up the awards -- and the award nominations -- in recent weeks, both in the U.S. and the U.K. But the soulful British singer says he can't quite bring himself to think about that one award that trumps them all: the Grammy.
Asked by Vibe magazine if he cares what musical category the Grammys would put him in, should he receive a nomination, Sam laughs, "Not at all!" He then adds, "I don’t even want to think about it too much because I don’t want to jinx anything, but if that did happen, that would…
