Taylor Swift's Twitter and Instagram Accounts Got Hacked

Taylor Swift's Twitter and Instagram accounts were hacked Tuesday morning.

"My Twitter got hacked but don't worry, Twitter is deleting the hacker tweets and locking my account until they can figure out how this happened and get me new passwords," Swift wrote via her Tumblr. "Never a dull moment."

Swift's Tumblr post was titled, "Well, now I'm awake."

ATP! Essential Listening: Niykee Heaton

Niykee Heaton’s debut EP Bad Intentions, which was released in September 2014 and saw immediate success on the iTunes and Billboard charts, demonstrates her extraordinary talent. The 20-year-old from Illinois first rose to fame through YouTube with her acoustic cover of Chief Keef’s “Love Sosa.” She continued to gain popularity with subsequent uploads of several more acoustic rap covers, such as “The Motto” by Drake featuring Lil Wayne, “Bands A Make Her Dance” by Juicy J, and “R.I.P.” by Young Jeezy featuring 2 Chainz.

Although her initial popularity was largely due to her lovely voice and pleasant looks (she recently passed one million followers on Instagram), Bad Intentions showed a completely new aspect of her talent. Along with a knack for songwriting that is impressive for her age, she has a fantastic ability to set the mood for a song with her voice. There is a unifying vibe in the production of the EP, but Heaton is able to make each song unique by vocally communicating emotions.

ATP! Album Review: Meghan Trainor - Title

Fans of Meghan Trainor circa the opening moments of the 2010s might’ve been surprised when the breakout star released seminal single “All About That Bass” back in mid-2014. The Nantucket, Mass. Chanteuse made her first big cracks into the industry from a country angle, writing songs like “DJ Rewind” for Rascal Flatts and performing Hunter Hayes covers on YouTube. With that said, once June of 2014 had came and went, the entire world was all about that bass – Trainor had solidified herself in pop history with one doo-wop of a hit. The question from here, naturally, was whether her mainstream success as an artist would begin with a song that, while enjoyable to millions, also came into criticism by critics as a representative one hit wonder.
