What's Trending: Taylor Swift, 'Black Panther' and Aaron Rogers

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- Taylor Swift, "Black Panther" and Aaron Rogers have people talking.

Mix 94.1 host Mercedes Martinez joins us to talk about what’s hot today.

Fans think Swift was dropping hints about her next album during a recent appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. She has been rerecording previously released music, and fans are now convinced she's going rerelease her "1989" album soon.

Fans have created an online petition asking Marvel Studios to recast the lead for "Black Panther," the role made famous by Chadwick Boseman. The studio previously had said it didn't want to recast the role out of respect for Boseman, who died last August of colon cancer. He was only 43.

A local look at the possibility of booster shots for COVID-19 vaccine

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- As more Nevadans get the COVID-19 vaccine, there is talk about potentially needing a third dose.

Pfizer's CEO said Thursday that a third booster shot of their vaccine will likely be needed within a year of getting the second dose.

According to Nevada's COVID-19 dashboard, around 21% of Nevadans are fully vaccinated.

But it is still unclear how long the protection will last. That is why experts say we can expect booster shots.

Local businesses tell 8 News Now if that is the case, they encourage everyone to get them when the time comes.

Motown music fills the room at Notoriety, a live performance venue in Downtown Las Vegas, as they continue to see more customers come through their doors.

Police say speed likely a factor in crash that killed motorcyclist

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- A motorcyclist has died in a crash near Torrey Pines and Vegas drives in the northwest valley. The incident occurred around 7:02 p.m.

The 32-year-old rider was the only one involved in the incident, and police say speed is likely a factor.

"All we ask is for all people that are going to be on a motorcycle, don't treat the roadways like a raceway," implored Metro Lt. Bret Ficklin.

Traffic is shut down in the area of Torrey Pines and Burlwood Way. ... Read More
