Taylor Swift. The music video for “The Man” is starring, directed by, and owned by Taylor Swift.

Love Is Blind on Netflix. | Netflix. The gaudy, toxic appeal of Netflix’s Love Is Blind. In an act of dark magic, the streaming giant Netflix has merged the erotic unpredictability of shotgun weddings with the impending doom of a dystopian fantasy into a 10-episode television event.
