When Taylor Swift's 'Out of the Woods' meets 'Circle of Life,' everything makes sense

Taylor Swift’s non-offensively generic pop album (that hasn’t even officially released yet) is just ripe for everyone else’s projections, and today has produced one remix that has melded together the queen of cats with the movie all about really big cats.

With its similar power ballad tone, it was probably inevitable that Swift’s “Out of the Woods” would be remixed with Lion King’s “Circle of Life,” courtesy of mash-up master Chambaland. Get ready though; this will probably be the beginning of the long Taylor Swift remix train ride once 1989 actually hits shelves Oct. 27.

Shia LaBeouf gives 'Shia LaBeouf' video a standing ovation

Before Shia LaBeouf came under fire for plagiarism, before he was arrested during a performance of Cabaret, before he staged an elaborate exhibit that featured him wearing a paper bag on his head, Rob Cantor wrote a song about the actor that painted him as a violent creature of the forest. And now it’s a music video.

In “Shia LaBeouf,” a cannibalistic version of LaBeouf is following you. It’s a hilariously creepy and surprisingly catchy track that does a good job making a case against getting caught in the woods with, as they call him, “actual cannibal Shia LaBeouf.” READ FULL STORY

Shia LaBeouf admits he used to follow Alec Baldwin home in 'Interview'

Shia LaBeouf has had quite the tumultuous year, and he knows it. And now he’s explaining it—or at least, he’s trying to. “Metamodernism has influenced a lot of my action in the public in this last year and a half,” LaBeouf told Interview magazine. Ah, metamodernism. Knew it!

Besides waxing philosophical about schools of thought, LaBeouf also talked to Interview about what famous men have tried to help him along in his career, and what famous men he’s, uh, stalked. It’s all a part of an apology tour of sorts he’s been on the past few weeks, where he’s spoken candidly about his recent behavior. (In reality, he’s on a press tour for the just-released Fury.)
