TAYLOR SWIFT WILL HONORED AS THE ARTIST OF THE DECADE AT THE AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS THIS SUNDAY AND SHE WILL BE ABLE TO PERFORM HER OLDER HITS. BIG MACHINE LABEL GROUP AND TAYLOR HAVE COME TO AN AGREEMENT THAT ALLOWS HER TO PERFORM HER SONGS ON MUTUALLY APPROVED PLATFORMS THAT COULD BE REBROADCAST, LIKE THE AMAS. THE LABEL REITERATES, “ARTISTS DO NOT NEED LABEL APPROVAL FOR LIVE PERFORMANCES.”

BEWARE OF THE “SECRET SISTER” GIFT EXCHANGE THAT’S POPPING BACK UP ON SOCIAL MEDIA. USERS ARE CONTACTED AND TOLD IF THEY SPEND $10 SENDING ONE GIFT TO SOMEONE ELSE, THEY COULD GET UP TO 36 GIFTS BACK. YOU’RE ASKED TO PROVIDE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS TO RECEIVE YOUR GIFTS AND TO RECRUIT SOME CLOSE FRIENDS. YOU’RE ALSO GIVEN AN ADDRESS OF WHERE TO SEND YOUR GIFT. BUT THE U.S. POSTAL INSPECTION SERVICE NOTES THIS IS A PYRAMID SCHEME AND IS ILLEGAL.

SPEAKING OF GIFTS, FIVE BELOW HAS HAD TO UP THEIR PRICES AFTER 17 YEARS OF PROVIDING COOL ITEMS FOR $5 OR LESS. THEY POSTED AN EXPLANATION ON THEIR INSTAGRAM:

We owe you an explanation. For more info, go to: bit.ly/5Bexp
