Taylor Swift is back—this time with a pastel snake

Love her or hate her, she sure knows how to make a statement. After weeks of teasing with a pastel palette takeover of her IG feed and a countdown clock on her website, Taylor Swift finally dropped her new single 'ME!' featuring Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco. Moving away from the dark, angsty vibes of Reputation and back into upbeat pop territory, the song is about "embracing your individuality and really celebrating it and owning it". It is not something we've never heard before, but it's catchy, we'll give her that. And of course, you'll find some easter eggs in the MV—Taylor has revealed that the titles of her second single and new album are both in there somewhere, so hunt away:

Idris Elba ties the knot with Sabrina Dhowre

Idris Elba is officially off the market, ladies. The actor wedded his girlfriend of two years, Sabrina Dhowre in a secret wedding at the Ksar Char Bagh hotel in Marrakesh, Morocco. Dhowre looked stunning in Vera Wang, and Elba kept up in a bespoke suit by Ozwald Boateng. The celebrations were reportedly spread out over three days, with a "colours of the Souk" themed dinner on the night before the wedding, and an all-white party at the Mandarin Oriental to close out the festivities.
