A few minutes before the famed crystal ball dropped at New York City’s Times Square, Taylor Swift unveiled the music video for her latest single “Out of the Woods” exclusively on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest.

The music video, shot under the direction of Joseph Kahn in New Zealand, finds the pop singer running from a pack of wolves and braving through different terrains during her epic journey of self-discovery.

“Out of the Woods” is lifted from her smash album 1989, which also spawned her chart-topping hits “Shake It Off,” “Blank Space,” “Style,” “Bad Blood,” and “Wildest Dreams.”

The annual Kardashian Kristmas Kard has arrived — finally.

After taking a break from shooting the long-standing tradition in 2014, Kim Kardashian took to her site on Wednesday to unveil their 2015 season’s greetings, starring North West, 2, Penelope, 3, Mason, 6, and Reign Disick, 12 months, in matching black apparel.

“All you need is love,” Kim captioned the card, which is clearly missing Saint — her second child with husband and rapper Kanye West — who was born on December 5.

In the past, the Kardashian-Jenners were the stars of their swanky holiday cards, but it seems like the new focus is on the family’s new generation.

It’s been three days since Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez was wrongfully crowned Miss Universe 2015 at the annual pageant held in Las Vegas Sunday.

For one short-lived, shining moment, host Steve Harvey announced Miss Colombia as the winner and issued her the glittering crown, coveted sash and a bouquet of flowers. As she waved to the audience and soaked in the glory, Harvey realized that he had misread the card and went back on stage to reroute the accolades to the actual winner, Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach.

“Okay folks, I have to apologize,” Harvey began. “The first runner-up is Colombia. Miss Universe 2015 is Philippines.”

After a few days of letting the dust settle, Miss Colombia took to social media to share her reaction to Harvey’s gaffe that was heard around the Internet.

“After the storm comes the calm,” she wrote on an Instagram photo of herself from the pageant. “Your destiny is written for you. And my destiny was this. I was able to bring happiness to my country after becoming Miss Universe for only a couple of minutes.”

“I also want to congratulate the Philippines for their new Miss Universe,” Gutierrez added. “The happiness that you must be feeling must be incredible.”

Read her entire response down below:

After the storm comes the calm. I want to thank each and everyone of you who have sent messages of support and strength. Every one of you has become an incredible human being in my book and I am the most fortunate and thankful for having the support not only from one country but from the whole entire world. Your destiny is written for you. And my destiny was this. I was able to bring happiness to my country after becoming Miss Universe for only a couple of minutes… Today because of that COLOMBIA and the LATIN COMMUNITY are being talked about in every corner of the world. I also want to congratulate the Philippines for their new Miss Universe ????????. The happiness that you must be feeling must be incredible. Life continues and in the future we will find out why things happen the way they happen. Thank you all for your LOVE SUPPORT and KINDNESS. ??

Jennifer Lawrence‘s squad isn’t big enough for two best friends, according to J.Law’s real best friend Laura.

While promoting her new film Joy on Andy Cohen‘s Watch What Happens Live, the Academy Award-winning actress received a surprise phone call from her longtime gal pal, who phoned in from JFK airport to set the BFF record straight.

“Jen, I want to clear this up once and for all,” Laura said. “Who is your best friend? Me or Amy Schumer?”

“You sausage! You know I love you,” J.Law answered, then explains the nature of the question to Cohen. “She got upset after the sea-doo pictures came out — the jet ski pictures.”

“Riding a jet ski with my best friend. That’s fighting words!” Laura joked. “Just because she’s funnier than me!”
