Give Yourself A Little More Credit

I came across this video today from Huffington Post from the outlet A Plus. People were asked to rate their success level on a scale of 1-10. Turns out we are our own worst critics. Not a lot of self-confidence come from the participants when describing their own success. Then however, their loved ones were asked to describe their success and the responses were really positive. Brings a tear to the eye to see how much they mean to their loved ones. Loved ones are always the best ones to build us up.

"Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat. What Are They Feeding You?"

Taylor Swift is out on her 1989 world tour and had quite the run at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Her last show at the Staples Center might take the cake though, when it comes to special guests. She brought out the one and only Phoebe Buffay to sing her hit "Smelly Cat". As any true FRIENDS fan would know, Phoebe Buffay is played by Lisa Kudrow and "Smelly Cat" was one of her most iconic songs. 

Other celebrities to join her on stage for this show were her BFF Selena Gomez and Justin Timberlake.

Taylor has quite the list of special guests who have joined her on stage for the 1989 world tour. Who will be next?
