Is This How Taylor Swift Keeps Her Music From Leaking?
Taylor Swift recently released behind-the-scenes footage of her “End Game” video with Ed Sheeran and Future, and in it seems she may have revealed just how she kept her music from leaking before her “reputation” album was released.
In the clip you can see dancers practicing their moves, but they aren’t actually doing it to Taylor’s songs. Instead, they are simply dancing to a click track.
"I commend them fully because because they’ve been pretending like there’s music playing when there’s not," she shares. "I have these in my ears. They’ve been dancing to a click track. It’s incredibly hard work.”
Dating App 'Happn' Is Taking After Pokemon Go
Believe it or not, Valentine’s Day is a HUGE day for the dating apps. People who don’t have plans are scrounging for people to get drinks with. Luckily, this Valentine’s Day, you can just walk around outside for a little while to find someone to meet up with. Happn is giving you a Pokemon Go style version of the dating apps so you can match with people you’ve crossed paths with.
The app kind of reminds of any augmented reality app. You walk around, and the app shows you people that are ACTUALLY in your presence. This means that it’s not JUST what you see on the screen, you have to actually get out and be around people for it to work.
