Taylor Swift had a busy weekend. She released another song from her Reputation album. She acted as bridesmaid at her best friend, Abigail's wedding and she started trademarking certain catchphrases and titles from her songs on reputation… Like: "Look what you made me do" and “the old taylor can’t come to the phone right now” 

A short clip of Taylor's speech at Abigail and Matt's wedding last night!

And Word on the street is Luke Bryan could be joining Katy Perry ... as the second judge on the new "American Idol"

sources say producers have reached out and made him an offer. Not sure how much they offered or how he responded… we do know that Katy is getting $25 mil and Ryan Seacrest is getting somewhere close to $15 mil. and supposedly the next highest paid talent would get around $6 mil
