Daniel Radcliffe Raps

You know Danielle Radcliffe can act, but did you also know he could rap? He can. And he's not bad, actually. While promoting his new movie "Horns", Radcliffe stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, where he and Jimmy started talking about rap music. Radcliffe — who said he's a big rap fan — decided to show off some of his skills by rapping Blackalicious' "Alphabet Aerobics" (definitely not the easiest song he could have chosen).

OK Go's 'I Won't Let You Down' Video is a Must-See

I'm not much of an OK Go fan, but I can (and do) appreciate a great music video. The band recently released a video for their newest single, "I Won't Let You Down," and it doesn't disappoint. It was shot using a camera on a drone and features dozens of people who use brightly-colored umbrellas to make a visually appealing choreographed dance routine. The video ends with shots so eleborate, it took 44 takes to get right (to be fair, there were 2,328 people in it, according to Rolling Stone).

Taylor Swift Releases White Noise

Taylor Swift fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of her new album, 1989, which is set to be released Oct. 27. Taylor has been casually releasing teasers from some of the album's songs, including track names, lyrics, and straight up releasing new songs (which are, apparently, about Harry Styles from One Direction). So things have been happening for T. Swift fans, which is why people got really, really excited when a new song popped up on iTunes simply called "Track 3." Without even bothering to preview the song, thousands of fans purchased the single... only to find out that the track was actually 8 seconds of white noise. Naturally, the song reached number 1 on iTunes in Canada.

If you've been eagerly awaiting to hear something new from One Direction, you're in luck: the band today announced their On the Road Again Tour dates for 2015.

The boys will launch their new tour in July 2015 in San Diego, CA, then visit states across the country before concluding in Boston, MA, in September 2015. But let's be real: with a new album on the way, more dates are probably on the horizon.
