Greetings! Top of the Morning is your daily AM news round-up. We paid attention overnight and gathered relevant tidbits to share over that first cup of coffee.
Last night the annual Victoria Secret’s Fashion Show was held at Earl’s Court in London, England and an angel almost took out Ariana Grande.

Those wings are dangerous. You can check out the pictures over on MTV, they’re pretty hilarious. While Grande was ducking, Taylor Swift was apparently backstage getting one of the models fired. The NY Daily News claims that Swift had producers axe model Jessica Hart from the show after Hart made mildly disparaging remarks about her performance last year. However, VS Chief Marketing Officer Ed Razek told the Daily News that there was no truth to the rumor, despite Hart’s absence on the catwalk. I mean, look at those faces. Totally innocent. Couldn’t possible ever cause any trouble.
The Victoria Secret’s Fashion Show will air on Tuesday December 9 at 10 p.m. EST on CBS.
At first his label signed him up for Twitter, until they saw the wrath that James Blunt could unleash in a 140 characters. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Atlantic Records signed the singer up for a Twitter account and asked him to self-promote. However, Blunt was shocked by the anger and snide remarks that were often directed his way, so he started crafting responses to amuse himself.

Although Atlantic has now asked him to stop tweeting, Blunt assures his audience that he still intends to tackle the trolls.
In a post on Google+, Youtube developers explained, “We never thought a video would be watched in numbers greater than a 32-bit integer (=2,147,483,647 views), but that was before we met PSY. ‘Gangnam Style’ has been viewed so many times we have to upgrade!” So after all that mess, it turns out “Gangnam Style” is what really breaks the internet.
When Chuck Jose lost a bet with his friends over Fantasy Football, they forced him to recreate Sia’s video for “Chandelier,” which originally starred 11-year-old dancer Maddie Ziegler. Chuck doesn’t look too bad on those high kicks, although he loses momentum a bit when it comes to the split. Happy Wednesday.
