1. Can Taylor Swift sing her repertoire?
Within the last few weeks, the popular American singer Taylor Swift commented through her social networks, the restrictions that both Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun prevented her from playing her oldest songs in the tribute that the American Music Awards awarded her as an Artist of The Decade next Sunday, November 24.
The artist explained that both Borchetta and Braun, both participants of Big Machine Label Group, a company that acquired the old label to which Swift belonged, banned her from playing her first hits under the argument that “I am not allowed to interpret my old songs on television because they claim that I would record my music again before they let me next year”, the artist said.

2.'Cats' launches new trailer and social media explodes
One of the most important and popular Broadway musicals will hit the screen on December 20 in theaters in the United States. Well, recently the second trailer of the film was revealed, which stars Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Taylor Swift, Rebel Wilson, among others, and which left much to talk about in social networks.
On Twitter, for example, several users expressed the dissatisfaction they felt seeing how the use of special effects on big stars turned out to make them look as "cat" as possible. Others, on the other hand, expressed how the trailer scared them, even stating how it generated them nightmares. Finally, other users question the fact that the actors look more like humans than cats, their size and why they wear shoes if they are felines.
However, fans of the stars who star in the film are excited for the premiere of the film, which although it does not have a specific release date in Latin America, is one of the most anticipated films.
