Taylor, please, just fade into the shadows with your billions and leave us alone.
For better or worse, Taylor Swift is back.
The singer-songwriter, cultural appropriator, and queen of white feminism just took to Instagram to announce that her new song (with an accompanying video), entitled "ME!" and featuring Brendan Urie, will drop at midnight EST. It' difficult to think of a more fitting song title for the narcissistic pop star's comeback, but regardless of the layers of irony, it's definite that the new song will rack up millions of plays in the first few hours of its release. After all, there are still plenty of lonely 30-year-olds out there who are willing to look past Swift's problematic qualities in order to jam to "ME!" in their Kia Sorento's on the way to Trader Joes.
Undoubtedly, the song will feature more self-celebratory rhetoric, some trendy moments of heavy synth, and, if we're lucky, some androgynously high notes from Brendan Urie. Who knows? Maybe we'll get really lucky and Swift won't sing at all!
Only time will tell, but until then, we'll be listening to Lizzo's new album and hoping we won't have to spend six month's hearing "ME!" on repeat in every grocery store and Uber.

Happy birthday to the world's biggest genre
On this day in 1973, Clive Campbell, the Jamaican-American "selector" known as DJ Kool Herc, hosted a "back to school jam" at 1520 Sedgewick Avenue in the Boogie Down Bronx of New York City.
Armed with a booming sound system and reggae beats, Herc– a shortened nickname for "Hercules"– commanded insatiable audiences across the South Bronx with his unique looping technique called the "Merry-Go Round." "[I knew that] they were waiting for this particular break," Herc later said, "and I got a couple of records that got the same break up in it. I wonder how it would be if I put them all together."

Raymond's popularity sheds light on a bizarre underside of the Animal Crossing fandom.
Raymond is a smug cat who highlights his heterochromatic eyes with hipster glasses.
He is essentially the same exact character as every other Animal Crossing villager with a "Smug" personality type, but again, and this is very important, Raymond is a cat with heterochromatic eyes and hipster glasses. As such, he has completely broken the Animal Crossing community.
