Every week in Sound Bites, EW checks out the most memorable lines of the week.

Not only is the first song on Taylor Swift’s 1989 titled “Welcome to New York,” but now Swift is responsible for actually welcoming people to the city: Swift has been named NYC & Company’s “Global Welcome Ambassador.” READ FULL STORY
Taylor Swift may seem invincible in these days leading up to the release of 1989, but she has fears like the rest of us. Well, not exactly like the rest of us. READ FULL STORY
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.

People celebrated its 40th birthday with Taylor Swift.
Swift donned a retro look for the cover, in an homage to the magazine’s inaugural issue in 1974 featuring Mia Farrow during the promotion of The Great Gatsby. In the issue, Swift promotes her new album, “1989,” and tells the magazine about taking time to enjoy the single life and to just, well, shake it off. Guess she took Amy Poehler and Tina Fey’s advice to heart.
People‘s 40th anniversary issue hits newsstands today.
Taylor Swift? Ew.
Swift is the latest star to guest on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show sketch “Ew!,” a mock Teen Nick show that features Fallon dressed as a teenage girl who says “Ew!” in response to almost everything. In the sketch, which aired Wednesday, Swift plays a nerdy 13-year-old named Natalie who likes “to eat apricots” and has “a Band-Aid collection.”
To celebrate its 125th birthday, The Wall Street Journal got a bunch of big names to write down their thoughts on what tomorrow will be like for a package called “The Future of Everything.” Mark Zuckerberg wrote about how the internet needs to—and will—be accessible to everyone one day; Taylor Swift revealed musicians just need to keep surprising their fans to keep the music industry alive. Oh, and Tyra Banks predicted everyone will have a robot friend who they rely on to boost their self-esteem—so basically, society is doomed.
Not everyone’s predictions are as extreme as Banks’ though: Director Christopher Nolan thinks movie theaters are going to be swankier and AMC’s Josh Sapan believes quality TV will eventually dominate and leave little room for unoriginal series. OK, so maybe we aren’t doomed after all. READ FULL STORY
