One's incredible and one's incredibad!

There are so many videos out there of people covering Taylor Swift music or dancing to her beats, it's almost impossible to watch them all! Which is why we're bringing you some of the BEST and WORST covers and mashups of Miz Swift's tunes!

We're happy to say that American Idol alum Todrick Hall officially put in his bid to join Swift's squad by creating an INCREDIBLE mashup of the songstress' hits We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together and Bad Blood.

On the other side of the spectrum, The X Factor UK held their "boot camp" section of the show where singers had to group up to perform a song.

The good news is, the song was Blank Space; the bad news is a couple teams drew some blanks when it came to the lyrics!

Ch-ch-check out both how epically good Todrick's video is (below) vs how HIGHlariously bad The X Factor singers FAIL (below)!

Former X Factor Judge Tulisa Contostavlos Arrested For Suspicion Of Drunk Driving After Car Crash!

This is such sad news.

Tulisa Contostavlos may be responsible for bringing Little Mix into the world on Series 8 of X Factor, but she hasn't had the easiest go of it herself ever since.

That's because in addition to her 2013 cocaine scandal, the 27-year-old singer was just arrested on Thursday night for suspicion of drunk driving!

According to police reports, Tulisa was driving her $230,000 Ferrari in Southgate, North London when she crashed into another car.
While there were no injures, the former X Factor judge was given a breathalyzer test before being arrested and spending the night in jail.

Luckily for Tulisa, an eyewitness claims she didn't seem too drunk, but we're unsure if she's going to get off as easy as when her drug charges were dropped back in 2014.

If she really was driving drunk, we hope she can get the help she needs.

liam payne opens up

Liam Payne is ready to open up… unfortunately not his shirt though!

As we previously reported, the One Direction hunk disappointed fans everywhere when he decided to not go topless on the cover of Attitude magazine. LOLz!

However, the British cutie did get serious about talking about staying sober and 1D's decision to go on hiatus for his first solo magazine cover.

Apparently, the Drag Me Down singer decided not to take his shirt off for the photoshoot because his past partying ways made him gain weight. Oh no!

He explained:

"I started drinking a lot and I began to get a bit tubbier. In fact, because of that I was getting fat jibes all the time, which hurt me…I'm not afraid to say I went through a pretty bad stage. And for that time in my life, that was perfect for me."

Poor thing!

Nonetheless, the heartthrob noted that his partying ways went a bit too far when he showed up at a fan event intoxicated. Whoa, what an honest answer.

One Direction Drops Their First Music Video Sans Zayn Malik — Watch Their Out Of This World Drag Me Down Vid!

| Filed under: Music MinuteX FactorBackstreet BoysOne DirectionZayn MalikHarry StylesLouis TomlinsonLiam PayneNiall Horan


When Zayn Malik left One Direction, we weren't 100% sure the boy band would ever be the same.

However, when the British cuties dropped their summer single Drag Me Down, we knew the boys still had something special.

Late Thursday evening, the heartthrobs made the weekend come early by releasing their music video for the track. LOVES it!

[ Related: Selena Gomez Is Team Zayn! ]

In the video, the members of 1D are seen training to become astronauts — we never knew NASA trained their astronauts with choreographed dance routines?! WE KID.

FUN FACT: The X Factor alums filmed the space themed project at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, and it was directed by long time collaborators Ben and Gabe Turner.

Is anyone else getting a Backstreet Boys vibe with this vid??

Though Zayn was certainly missed on-screen, we think the rest of the musical group did an out of this world job.

Ch-ch-check out the full video (above)!
