■ Speaking of Adele, the comeback kid has already broke a record with her just-released “Hello.” Over the weekend, it was reported that the visual broke the record for the most VEVO views in 24 hours, snagging a whopping 23.3 million play counts. That title was previously held by Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood.” #bloop
■ Taryn Manning gushed about her earl 2000s work with Eminem and Britney Spears in a new interview with Details. While she recalled the day that Em’s bodyguards thought that she was a fan on the loose during their initial meeting, Taryn said that her work with Britney was something she has never experienced in her life.
“I have never experienced anything like that in my life. We were shooting in Louisiana, and literally no matter where you looked on set—there were fans everywhere: Screaming little girls with their mothers. The A.D. would have to run over to them and explain that we were trying to film a movie,” she said. “It was distracting, but at the same time I was like,’“Wow! Holy shit!’ Anytime she walked across the set, there was an uproar. And I would be like, ‘Britney, they’re waving to you. Wave back.’ She had it down. She gives her fans what they want. I learned so much from her. And she is such a sweetheart. That’s one thing I will never forget about her: a very sweet, gentle human being—the person I was around. For two months.”
■ Beyoncé served up some fierceness over the weekend at Ciara’s birthday party, dressing up as Storm from X-Men. We love it, but we’re also a little terrified.
■ Lastly, if you love Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Downtown” and Halloween, then this light show is totally for you.
