Transcript for Taylor Swift performed at NPR's Tiny Desk
Now we cannot wait to share "Pop news" with Lara. Hey, Lara. Good morning to you, guys. Good morning to you all. We'll begin today with miss Taylor Swift, one of the biggest stars in the world just played a tiny concert. NPR's tiny desk concert to be exact. Take a look. Can I go where you go can we always -- The superstar is the latest a-lister to perform for NPR's iconic tiny desk series where artists play in a little corner of the NPR Washington bureau. More than 300 people packed in the room. You can see right there to watch Taylor who told them she wanted to, quote, take this as an opportunity to show you guys how the songs sounded when I first wrote them which for the "Lover" album meant waking up in the middle of the night, stumbling to the piano in her pajamas when she got ideas tore songs. Over 800 have been done since they started the series. I highly recommend you check them out, started in 2008 from the Jonas brothers to lizzo, classical artists have taken that tiny little stage. They are really remarkable shows. We're guessing this one, though, may be a hard act to follow. Check it out. Really, really nice. She's getting out there and that music is great. Also today in "Pop news," Georgia state university has a new artist in residence. Ludacris. The three-time grammy winner giving back. He'll take part in lectures and mentor students alongside other professors -- excuse me. Bless you. Bless you. Want me to pick it up? Sorry. He studied music management there 20 years ago before his career exploded and Georgia state announced the news with a picture of his old student I.D. Stating it's time to update your panther card. We're excited to welcome Chris bridges back to campus this fall as an artist-in-residence. Plus, Georgia state is one of the most innovative and diverse universities in the country. I couldn't imagine a better place to work. Check out his movie coming out in 2020. George Stephanopoulos. Way to go. Nicely done. Thank you. Out of the bullpen. You mow when you get something -- ooh. On live TV. Good morning, everybody. Finally a cautionary tale on this Friday eve. A 20-year-old guy in Iowa making a super bad judgment call when he used a fake I.D. In a bar and not just any fake I.D., a mclovin' fake I.D. I'm not making it up. The same one Seth rogen made famous in the hit comedy "Superbad" in this classic scene. Roll 'em. Mclovin'. Mclovin. Are you trying to be an Irish r&b sing injure. You pick any name when you get down there. And you landed on mclovim? Well, so did 20-year-old Daniel. He landed on mclovin approached by police at a bar in Iowa city when they suspected he was drinking underage they asked for his I.D. And got a quick out of his choice. Yes, an exact replica from the movie. He was charged with drinking under age and possession of a fake I.D. Seth rogen who wrote the screenplay caught wind of the story and tweeted, yep, my work is done here. That's funny. I'm glad I was able to talk through that last one. Thanks for helping?
