We must confess, it was difficult to put together a list of newsmakers this week for there were so many stars who left everyone talking. The week began with the spillover of Taylor Swift vs Big Machine battle. After Taylor called Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta, the duo broke their silence over the controversy and gave their green signal to Taylor to perform her songs at the American Music Awards 2019. Braun also revealed since Taylor went public with her battle, he and his family have received several death threats. 

While Taylor was busy fighting for her music, her BFF Selena Gomez confirmed she was releasing her new album in January 2020. The singer hinted that her new songs could feature more references to Justin Bieber. Meanwhile, JB was busy celebrating Hailey Baldwin's birthday. Hailey turned 23 on Saturday, November 23. The duo chose to have a low-key birthday celebration. Staying on the topic of birthdays, Saturday was also Miley Cyrus' birthday. The singer, who has been MIA for a while now due to her vocal surgery, shared pictures from her birthday celebrations featuring her mother and beau Cody Simpson. 

Meanwhile, on the movies front, there were also rumours doing the rounds that Brad Pitt has found love yet again. Without much further ado, here are the biggest newsmakers of the week.
