The Bustle Huddle: What Bustle's Editors Are Talking About On October 23
It's Monday, and back to the daily grind! You probably spent your morning snoozing your alarm, drinking lots of coffee, and reminiscing about the weekend. Now we're all back up and running, and W.O.W. has it been an exciting day. Between celeb news, science updates, and political stories, there's so much you need to hear about.
So let's get right into it — here's what Bustle's editors were chatting about today, Oct 23:
Justin Timberlake + Super Bowl
In case you missed the announcement Sunday night, Justin Timberlake is *officially* bringing sexy back to the 2018 Super Bowl halftime show! It's been over a decade since Timberlake last performed at the event — seriously, who can forget the infamous "wardrobe malfunction" with Janet Jackson in 2004! At the time, Jackson was largely blamed for the incident. Now, fans are questioning why only JT is being invited back.
Kardashian Babies: Kim K posted a tweet about strollers, and the Internet went wild with theories. Is she having twins? Is she trolling us?! No idea.
Taylor Swift + "...Ready For It"
Another day, another Taylor Swift story. This morning, the Internet was treated to the first teaser of Taylor Swift's upcoming music video for "...Ready For It". I suggest you watch it for yourself (seriously, it's great). There's lightning, a spaceship, killer costumes, and that's just the tip of the iceberg. The full video is scheduled to drop this Thursday, Oct. 26, so check back in later this week!

Gold Star Families + Trump
Last week, Trump made a call to the family of Sgt. La David Johnson, a soldier who died in combat in Niger. This got major attention when both Rep. Frederica S. Wilson and Johnson's family criticized the sincerity of the call. Members of the White House verified what was said on the call, but Trump accused them of lying. Today, Myeshia Johnson, the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, was interviewed on GMA. Johnson said that the phone call made her feel worse, and that Trump struggled to remember her husband's name. Shortly after, Trump tweeted that that's not what happened. Sigh.

Moon Caves + Science
So... caves on the moon might be a thing, but just how big a deal is this discovery? Well, scientists believe that "moon caves" could be colonized. By humans. As in humans could live in these caves. On the moon. Yep. According to said scientists, the caves contain water or ice and seem structurally safe. This is what makes them so appealing as a future home for humans. Farewell, Earth!?!
