Taylor Swift posts lengthy note claiming her former label wont let her perform her early music at the AMAs

Taylor Swift has written an open letter to let people know the latest in her battle with Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta, who she says won’t let her perform old songs at the AMAs this month. Back in July, the singer expressed her displeasure upon learning that her music catalog had been sold to a company owned by Braun (read here, here, here, and here).  Braun's Ithaca Holdings acquired Big Machine Label Group from founder Borchetta in late June.

Mexican Police Free Drug Lord, El Chapo’s Son As Culiacán Battle Erupts

Heavy fighting broke out in northern Mexico after the security forces seized one of the sons of jailed drug kingpin Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán.

Premier League Relegation: Manchester United Fighting A Battle To Avoid It

Manchester United suffered yet another well-deserved defeat as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are only two points above the relegation zone now. Manchester United's dismal form continued as Matty Longstaff's debut goal earned Newcastle United a 1-0 Premier League victory and piled the misery on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Having rattled the crossbar in the first half, Matty Longstaff - partnering his older brother Sean in midfield - fizzed in the winner with a superb 72nd-minute strike at St James' Park. Things would have been different had Harry Maguire converted a simple chance before the break, while Fabian Schar denied Marcus Rashford a tap-in just prior to Newcastle's goal. But it was 19-year-old Matty Longstaff who had the final say as Steve Bruce, on his 400th Premier League game a...
