Taylor Swift sics fans on Scooter Braun, The Carlyle Group



We’ve spent a lot of time and energy over the last few years trying to parse the evolution (or whatever you want to call it) of fandom, as passions, parasocial relationships, and good-old-fashioned “being a dick” have all collided in the constantly mutating cauldron that is the internet, often with wholly unpredictable results. But while we’ve often been able to measure the knock-on effects that these kinds of heightened attachments can have on performers, projects, and just people caught in the crossfire, it’s been rare to gauge the full firepower that a fully mobilized fandom of sufficiently active followers can have on a target, especially one normally divorced from all but the most bloodless of concerns.

Christmas season off to a rocky start as Dollywood sued over Charlie Brown song copyr



If you’re looking for an unusually festive place to celebrate Christmas this year, may we suggest Pigeon Forge, Tennessee? The fabled home of Dollywood, named for country legend Dolly Parton, offers holiday celebrations at the Titanic museum, a Christmas In The Smokies Bluegrass Festival, breakfast with Santa, a parade of many colors, and other plentiful holly-strewn elements of Dollywood’s Smokey Mountain Christmas. These events also include dinner theatre (naturally), and that’s where the looming presence of legislation is already Grinch-ing up the place.
