An excited, energetic Taylor Swift brings tour to MetLife

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.: Taylor Swift brought her explosive Reputation Tour to the MetLife Stadium on Friday and will make history as the first female artist to play three consecutive shows at the venue when she performs Saturday and Sunday.
Swift was energetic and excited during her two-hour-plus show at the stadium, home to the New York Giants and the New York Jets.
She kicked the show in a glittery black number, changing outfits multiple times and performing across three stages at the venue holding 80,000 seats.
She sang a number of songs from her recent album, “reputation,” including the hits “Gorgeous,” “Delicate,” .”..Ready for It?” and “Look What You Made Me Do,” which featured a large snake in the background.
“There’s so many things you could be doing on your Friday night, so thank you for hanging out with us,” Swift said to the feverish audience.

Two Arab hopefuls make it to the Miss Universe competition

  • The competition will be held in Thailand on Dec. 16
  • Miss ­Lebanon and Miss Egypt are the only Arab contestants at the 67th edition of Miss Universe

DUBAI: Miss Lebanon and Miss Egypt are set to represent the Middle East at Dec. 16’s Miss Universe competition in Bangkok, Thailand.

Miss ­Lebanon, Maya Reaidy, and Miss Egypt, Nariman Khaled, are the only Arab contestants at the 67th edition of Miss Universe, which will see 93 contestants smile, wave, sashay and generally delight the crowd next week.

The show is set to be hosted by US comedian Steve Harvey, who in 2016 made international headlines in a hilarious, cringe-worthy slip-up where he announced the wrong winner.

Harvey will be joined — perhaps saved — on stage by US model Ashley Graham.

Reaidy is a pharmacy student at the Lebanese American University, while Khaled is studying business information systems in Egypt.
