Miley Cyrus announced the release of Plastic Hearts

On 23 October (Friday), Miley Cyrus took to her social media to announce the release of highly anticipated album “Plastic Hearts.” The record will drop on 27 October (Tuesday). The singer also shared the cover of the upcoming album. The picture was taken by Mick Rock who also worked with Freddie Mercury, Joan Jett and David Bowie.

“I began this album over 2 years ago. Thought I had it all figured out. Not just the record with its songs and sounds but my whole fucking life. But no one checks an ego like life itself. Just when I thought the body of work was finished… it was ALL erased. Including most of the music’s relevance. Because EVERYTHING had changed,” posted Miley. “If it were a chapter in my book I guess I would call it The Beginning which usually when something is over we call it The End. But it was far from that. In triumph and gratitude I present to you my 7th studio record, Plastic Hearts.”

“Plastic Hearts” is promoted by “Midnight Sky” released on 14 August. Miley’s last studio album was “Younger Now” released in 2017.


Justin Bieber announced a new documentary

After the success of his first documentary “Justin Bieber: Seasons,” the singer announced the release of a new documentary. The series will be called “Justin Bieber: Next Chapter” and will be made available on 30 October (Friday) on YouTube.

The new documentary will show an exclusive look into Justin’s life since national quarantine. The singer also takes his time to comment on his growth over the last several years and his relationship with God.

“There's a lot more confidence in my relationships. There was times where I was like, 'Man, is this pain ever going to go away?' I'd rather get away than to be in this cycle. Now, I just have hope in my relationship with God that's not based on fear, that's not based on my past. It's based on who I truly am,” said Justin in the trailer. “I want to make content that will inspire and make people happy. Real secure people add value to people, uplift people, lead with love. I could have avoided a lot of pain. People love a happy ending.”

Justin recently released two new tracks – “Holy” (with Chance the Rapper) and “Lonely” (with Benny Blanco).

You can watch the official trailer for the series at Justin’s official YouTube website.


Prince Harry & Meghan Markle hosted Time100 Talk

Last week, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex hosted a special edition of TIME100 Talks from their Santa Barbara home. The couple spoke with Edward Felsenthal, Editor-in-Chief and CEO of TIME, about the state of digital world experience and why it’s important to create online communities that are more compassionate, safe, and trustworthy.

“What is happening in the online world is affecting the world. It is not restricted to certain platforms or certain social media conversations or groups. This is a global crisis – a global crisis of hate, a global crisis of misinformation, and a global health crisis,” said Prince Harry.

The Queen’s Gambit: who taught Beth to play chess?

Answer: Mr. Shaibel.

Beth Harmon spent her childhood in the orphanage. Her mother died in a car crash and Beth had no one to take care of her. In the orphanage, all children were drugged to remain compliant. However, one day she came across Mr. Shaibel who was playing chess in the basement.

It took some convincing but he eventually agreed on teaching her how to play the game. Beth became obsessed with chess and quickly surpassed his master.
