A small stage giving fans the best view of Taylor Swift's concert stop in Brisbane, Australia collapsed, forcing fans to move elsewhere in the arena.
The platform, which was only about three feet off the ground, was evacuated. No one was injured, and Taylor acknowledged the incident from the stage. She said, “I’m going to come back out and sing for you, and we’re going to pretend this never happened. Love you, Brisbane.”
The fans who occupied the prime seats were offered a refund.

In Georgia, a judge has ordered a man to pay his ex $50,000 for breaking his promise to marry her.
Christopher Ned Kelley was sued by his ex girlfriend and baby mama Melissa Cooper "for breach of promise to marry." She claimed he ruined their relationship by cheating on her at least twice.
Kelley admits that he gave Cooper a $10,000 engagement ring, but claims he never popped the question.
