  1. Ticketmaster's website crashed during the sale of tickets for Taylor Swift's Eras Tour in France, leaving fans unable to purchase tickets. It's the second time the site has crashed during the tour.

Though thousands of miles separate Cleménce Dubois from the United States, the 20-year-old Parisian has spent months transfixed by what was happening on the other side of the Atlantic - particularly because of Taylor Swift and her much anticipated Eras Tour.

Since the tour began on March 17, Dubois has memorized the singer's set list and watched her shows across the United States as fans "doing God's work" stream Swift's approximately four-hour performances on TikTok. When the pop star announced she would be heading to France next year, Dubois "almost fainted," she said.
