    From Lorde to Lena Dunham, to the U.S. women’s soccer team, to Julia Roberts and Joan Baez — Taylor Swift seems to be on a ruthless mission to bring every famous woman onstage with her during her “1989” tour.

    After attending Swift’s concert in Santa Clara, Calif., where Roberts and Baez both made an appearance, writer Lara Marie Schoenhals decided to make her own predictions about who would appear at TSwift’s next concert.

    In a hilarious video titled “Please Welcome to the Stage,” Schoenhals pretends she is Swift introducing her next impressive surprise guests.

    According to Schoenhals, future guests could be the hologram of Maya Angelou, Gigi Hadid and the Blair Witch, not to mention the first woman ever, EVE! — among others.

    We can’t wait to see if Swift introduces Eve at her next concert.

  • Christopher Duffley, 14, stole the show yesterday evening before a Boston Red Sox game.

    The teenager, who is blind and autistic, was invited to sing the national anthem at Fenway Park and blew away the crowd.

    Duffley, from Manchester, N.H., was born prematurely, weighing only 1 pound 12 ounces, and was rendered blind because of retinopathy of prematurity.

    Monday marked Duffley’s third time singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” at Fenway. After he finished, fans and players gave him a huge ovation.

    Looks like “wow” and “whoa” aren’t the only phrases that Owen Wilson overuses in movies.

    Thanks to a new supercut called “Things Owen Wilson Says,” we can now see just how many crutch phrases the actor repeats in his films.

    “Come on,” “honestly,” “unbelievable” and, of course “wow” and “whoa” are just a few phrases that Wilson has used in all of his movies.

    Our favorite line has to be “crazier than a road lizard,” because how do you get away with saying that phrase in multiple movies?

    This is the latest installment of Owen Wilson supercut videos made by the YouTube channel Owenergy Studios.

    Let this be a warning to all, be careful when letting Owen Wilson ad-lib, because somehow “crazier than a road lizard” might make it into the film.

  • Next time you see a koala, you may want to think twice before giving it a hug.

    Australian dairy farmer Ebony Churchill was herding her cows down a muddy road on her quad bike when she realized a pretty aggressive koala was chasing her down.

    She told the Advertiser, “He was close, but then he started running towards me, and I thought I better speed up [on the quad bike]. I thought if I got further down the track, he would lose interest. I got to the end of the cows and couldn’t go any further, so that’s when I bailed off the bike. They’ve got hard, sharp claws, and I didn’t want to have him grabbing at my leg as I was on the bike.”

    Ebony surrendered her bike after the koala caught up to her and grabbed on to the back tire.

    “He sat on the tire for a while, and I didn’t want to upset him,” she said. “I started herding the cows on foot, and when I looked back, he had got off the bike and was walking away.”

    Ebony's theory as to why the koala ran after her: “He was in love with me, and I rejected

  • Even in a galaxies far, far away, everyone at some point can use some R&R.

    Artist Kyle Hagey created a series of portraits featuring iconic “Star Wars” characters relaxing in various vacation spots. Because, come on, even Darth Vader needs to take time off and sip tea in a meadow.

    “Here’s Darth just sipping some bomb-ass tea, minding his own business. Maybe he’s plotting some evil deeds. Or maybe he’s just pondering his life and how it got to this point. I can’t really say for sure.” Hagey writes in the picture’s description.

    Other portraits show “Star Wars” Stormtroopers riding a bicycle built for two, C-3PO daydreaming in a meadow, and, of course, Yoda flipping the bird in a garden window.

    Hagey’s prints are for sale on his Etsy page.
