The music video for “End Game,” the latest song lifted from Taylor Swift’s “Reputation” album, has been released and has garnered favorable reviews as Swifties flocked to view the clip online.

The song began to trend on social media, and fans had mostly positive things to say about the video, Billboard reported. The clip also includes song collaborators Ed Sheeran and Future.

“This music video is literally ‘22’ all grown up,” one Twitter user posted. “This is the music video new romantics deserved. I’m so in love.”

In the clip, Swift dances with Future on a yacht and parties with Sheeran, Rolling Stone reported.

Swift released “End Game” in November as “Reputation’s” third single, following "Look What You Made Me Do" and "… Ready For It?”

Here is the music video and some reaction to it:

YouTube star Logan Paul apologizes for posting video of apparent dead body

YouTube personality Logan Paul apologized for sharing a video during a visit to Japan’s “suicide forest” that included footage of what appeared to be a dead body, NPR reported.

“Where do I begin,” Paul wrote on his Twitter page late Monday. “Let’s start with this. I’m sorry.”“I didn’t do it for views. I get views,” tweeted Paul, who has more than 15 million YouTube subscribers. “I did it because I thought I could make a positive ripple on the internet, not cause a monsoon of negativity.”

Paul said in his Twitter post that he originally posted the video to raise awareness for suicide and suicide prevention.

The video was filmed in the Aokigahara forest at the edge of Mount Fuji, an area that has been famous for its popularity among people who want to carry out a suicide, NPR reported. In his video, Paul blurred out the face of the person who had died, but he showed other parts of the body as he and his friends stood near it and talked.

“Yo, are you alive?" he says in the video, Fox News reported.

The video was uploaded Sunday and titled “We found a dead body in the Japanese Suicide Forest.” According to New York magazine, it garnered more than 6 million views in less than one day before it was removed by Paul.

The backlash Paul received included a tweet from actress and online video veteran Anna Akana, who lost her sister, Kristina, to suicide 10 years ago.

“You do not walk into a suicide forest with a camera and claim mental health awareness,” she tweeted.

An edited version of the video was later posted to Twitter; it does not include footage of the body. Instead, it shows some of Paul's reactions and comments, NPR reported.

Paul said that he had “demonetized” the video, which had a segment in the parking lot near the forest. In that segment, he told viewers that his laughter and attempts at humor were a coping mechanism after seeing the body.

YouTube star Laci Green was not amused, NPR reported, tweeting that “exploiting a suicide victim in Japan to the tune of 6M+ views while YouTube demonetizes students protesting in Iran is a perfect example of what a sociopathic garbage fire YouTube has become.”

Japan’s suicide rate is one of the highest among developed nations, NPR reported. In the U.S., the rate has been climbing since 2000 — with the biggest increase seen in girls who are 10-14 years old, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said last year.

A-ha's stripped down version of ‘Take On Me’ is hauntingly beautiful

“Take On Me” by A-ha is one of the 1980s’ most remembered songs, not only for its fast-paced beat but also because of that iconic video, which featured a pencil-sketch animation theme (called rotoscoping) and live action featuring lead singer Morten Harket and his then-girlfriend, actress Bunty Bailey.

It reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts in October 1985 and won six awards at the 1986 MTV Video Music Awards.

But take away the fast tempo and the synthesizers and that catchy riff and what do you get? A stripped-down, acoustic version of the hit that the Norwegian-based group played earlier this month on an “MTV Unplugged” show at Giske Harbour Hall in Norway.

On “MTV Unplugged,” the song is slow and performed in a style vaguely reminiscent of the 1960s rock ’n’ roll band Vanilla Fudge, which took fast-paced songs and sang them at an excruciatingly slow tempo. The Ah-ha acoustic version is less psychedelic and is sung quietly -- almost reverently.

Many purists will prefer the version that bubbled through the radio and television during the 1980s, but the new arrangement is certainly haunting.

Oh, JibJab, you’re not fine: Toni Basil sues over use of “Mickey” 

Toni Basil thinks that JibJab’s use of her No. 1 hit “Mickey” is not so fine.

>> Read more trending news

The singer-choreographer, whose one-hit wonder “Mickey” has been a staple on music video channels since it debuted in 1982, is suing the digital entertainment studio, TMZ reported.

According to the lawsuit, Basil, whose real name is Antonia Christina Basilotta, charges that JibJab used her voice, image and likeness when it released a “Mickey” video promo in February for its musical e-cardss, TMZ reported. She also charged that JibJab did not verify who owned the musical rights to “Mickey,” and that the company used the e-card it designed as a promotional ad to entice customers to subscribe to its other products and services.

Basil, 73, said in the lawsuit that she has become "despondent and physically ill" over JibJab’s actions and now suffers from sleep deprivation, nightmares and anxiety. She is suing for damages, lost profits and emotional stress, TMZ reported.

JibJab claims it did obtain a license for the video, but honored her request to take it down once it learned she was in a separate dispute over the rights, TMZ reported.

“Mickey” was released as a single in September 1982 and hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 two months later. It was certified gold and in early 1983 hit platinum for sales of more than two million copies in the United States, according to Billboard. The music video for the song was an early favorite on MTV.

The 10-episode, half-hour series, tentatively called “Cobra Kai,” reunites original “Karate Kid” stars Ralph Macchio and William Zabka. The series is set 30 years after the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament. Zabka, reprising his role as Johnny Lawrence, seeks redemption by reopening the infamous Cobra Kai karate dojo, Variety reported. That rekindles his rivalry with the now-successful Daniel LaRusso (Macchio), who has been struggling to manage life without Miyagi (Pat Morita). Morita passed away in 2005. 

"The humor comes from two guys, who at 50 years old, still have an ax to grind," Macchio (now 55) said at the Television Critics Association on Friday. Johnny "just can't let go; he's still a teenager at heart."

“The minute I heard about this project, I knew we had to have it. ‘The Karate Kid’ became an instant classic in the 1980s, and still resonates with audiences around the world and on YouTube today,” Susanne Daniels, global head of original content for YouTube, told Variety.

In a video message sent to Time from Puerto Rico, Daddy Yankee honored the record-breaking success of the song.

"Thank you, YouTube for 'Despacito's success. I recognize the influence that the platform has," he said. "The music industry has changed. The rules of music have changed. And YouTube has a big responsibility, and I recognize it. Breaking a record is overwhelming, and I'm happy to keep inspiring others to do the same," he said.

The song debuted on YouTube in January 2017. It is currently in its 12th straight week atop Billboard magazine’s Hot 100 chart.
