Look what lockdown made Taylor Swift do: write and record an entirely new album. Forgoing her signature easter eggs and the hallmarks of a typical music release, the singer announced that she's dropping her eighth studio album, "folklore," at midnight on Friday, less than a year after putting out her last hit record, "Lover." "Most of the things I had planned this summer didn't end up happening, but there is something I hadn't planned on that DID happen," Swift wrote on Instagram Thursday morning.

Amber Heard has admitted she lied to her mum about "Jekyll and Hyde" Johnny Depp hitting her during their relationship. Heard, 34, is back at London's High Court today after three days giving evidence in Depp 's libel case against News Group Newspapers. It is believed to be her final turn in the witness box, while Heard's sister Whitney is expected to take over this afternoon.

New offensives against major cities from President Donald Trump and GOP governors are pushing at the central geographic fault line between the Republican and Democratic coalitions. On one front, Trump is taking his confrontational approach toward big cities to an ominous new level by deploying federal law-enforcement officials to Portland and potentially other locales over the objection of local officials. On the other, Republican governors, especially but not exclusively across the Sun Belt, have repeatedly blocked mostly Democratic local leaders from locking down their communities, despite exploding caseloads in cities from Atlanta to Phoenix. These orders represent a new crest in a decade-long wave of actions by Republican state officials to preempt decisions made by local Democratic governments. "We haven't had issues that are so immediately pressing and so much involving public health and safety," says Richard Briffault, a Columbia University law professor who has studied state preemption of municipal actions.
