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?
A tragedy occurred today in Virginia when WDBJ-TV journalists Alison Parker and Adam Ward were gunned down while conducting a live interview. They were shot live on air by Vester L. Flanagan II, who was a previous employee of WDBJ. He went by the on air name Bryce Williams. Williams died later this afternoon of a self-inflicted gun shot wound. Thoughts and prayers going out to the families and friends of Parker and Ward. CLICK HERE FOR MORE ON THE STORY.

Jess Jones is a waitress at D’Jais Bar & Grill in Belmar, New Jersey. After a recent shift, she posted a photo to Facebook showing a receipt from a party of 8 people. In the space for the tip was written 'LOL' with the added note '1 hour for food'. This is infuriating! I will admit that I have experienced some bad service in my day, but also having worked as both a bartender and waitress you come to rely on tips to get by. Thoughts?
Audrey Nethery is 6 years old and suffers from a rare bone marrow disease called Diamond-Blackfan anemia, but that doesn't stop her from moving and shaking with the Latin inspired dance exercise Zumba. There was a Zumba convention in Orlando, Florida last week and Audrey stole the show with some Zumba instructors. The video was posted on Facebook and has now gone viral. This little girl has totally given me some much needed Monday motivation to get off my butt and exercise. She's amazing!
Here is the professional video Zumba produced of Audrey dancing at the Zumba convention!!!! Thanks so much Zumba!!! We appreciate everything you have done for our family!!!Posted by Audrey's DBA Photo Booth on Tuesday, August 18, 2015
