    • The deluxe release of her latest album “Evermore” was released yesterday, which was previously only available in physical formats on streaming platforms, and it includes two special bonus tracks.
    • The songs are called “Right Where You Left Me” and “It’s Time To Go.”
    • On “It’s Time To Go,” Taylor seemingly has words for Scooter Braun and Big Machine who bought and sold her music catalogue for over $300 million.
    • She sings, “Fifteen Years, fifteen million tears / Begging ’til my knees bled / I gave it my all, he gave me nothing at all / Then wondered why I left / Now he sits on his throne in his palace of bones / Praying to his greed / He’s got my past frozen behind glass / But I’ve got me.”
  • #RegéJeanPage
    • Could the Duke of Hastings be the next James Bond?
    • “Bridgerton” fans are campaigning on social media to have Regé-John Page cast in the next Bond film after Daniel Craig exits the role.
    • Last month the star seemed to hint at the idea when he tweeted a video of himself with the caption, “Regency, royalty. Shaken and stirred.”
    • “Variety” magazine is reporting that the betting firm Ladbrokes has seen Page’s odds of landing the role increase significantly.
    • He’s currently a 5/1 shot to land the role.
    • That behind Tom Hardy, who has the best odds at 6/4, James Norton at 7/4 and Idris Elba at 7/2.
    • The last Bond movie starring Daniel Craig, “No Time To Die,” is currently scheduled to be released in April.
  • #RemoteWorkers
    • Survey: Remote workers are ready to return to the office.
    • 63% of Americans that are working for home due to COVID-19 say they are ready to go back to the office.
    • This is provided that the right incentives and safety protocols are in place.
    • When asked what benefits and safely measure would entice them to return, 76% say they would prefer daily temperature checks and 91% say they would prefer that less than 50% be in the office daily.
    • Survey respondents say the things they miss most about office life are in-person meetings and face-to-face interaction with coworkers.
  • #Viennetta
    • The iconic cake from the 90s is making a return to the US!
    • Good Humor announced this week that they’d be reviving the indulgent, rippled ice cream cake.
    • In a press released they said, “Fans have clamored for Viennetta’s return for almost 30 years, and in 2021, Good Humor grants their wish.”
    • It will only be available in vanilla for now and is described as combining “ a wavy frozen vanilla base between crispy, decadent chocolate layers in a unique cake shape that is perfectly portioned for an entire family to share.”
