The opening night of Taylor Swift's "The Eras Tour" drew close to 70,000 concert-goers, making it the most-attended show by a female performer in US history.

Madonna previously held the record, which she secured in 1987. (She held on to the top spot for 36 years — longer than most artists' careers!)

Oh, and be sure to drink some coffee if you plan to go to the show — its runtime is more than three hours.

The Oscars came and went, but have you ever wondered how the statuettes are made?

We've all practiced our acceptance speeches while standing in front of the bathroom mirror, but the iconic 8.5-pound prize has a unique history.

CNN put together a visually-pleasing backstory on the production of these famous trophies.

Hint: it involves a 3-D printer. But for now, a hairbrush will have to do for us.

Keep an eye out for new music from Lana Del Rey, 6LACK, Depeche Mode, Fall Out Boy and more this week.

We're most looking forward to Lana's album, Did You Know That There's A Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd. Based on the three singles released so far, this could very well be one of Lana's best projects to date (but competing with Norman Fucking Rockwell! is a hard task).

Stay tuned.
