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.

Footballer Kompany’s dad first black mayor in Belgium

  • Pierre Kompany, 71, arrived in Belgium in 1975 as a refugee from what was then Zaire, now the Democratic Republic of Congo
  • Kompany was head of the centrist CDH list in Sunday’s municipal election in Ganshoren, a bilingual French and Dutch speaking town of 25,000

BRUSSELS: Pierre Kompany, the father of Manchester City captain and Belgian international defender Vincent, became Belgium’s first black elected mayor on Monday after his party topped the poll in the Brussels suburb Ganshoren.
Pierre Kompany, 71, arrived in Belgium in 1975 as a refugee from what was then Zaire, now the Democratic Republic of Congo, and has since been naturalized as a citizen and entered politics.
He was head of the centrist CDH list in Sunday’s municipal election in Ganshoren, a bilingual French and Dutch speaking town of 25,000 just outside the Belgian capital, and will take office in December.
“He’s the first black mayor in Belgium,” Vincent declared on Instagram. “It has never happened before. It’s historic. We’re all delighted. Bravo to my father.”
In 2014, a local councillor of Congolese origin, Denis Liselele, served as temporary mayor in the Belgian town of Sambreville after the elected town leader was suspended during a court case.
