The Daily Dish – Friday, July 24

In her fourth day on the stand in Johnny Depp‘s libel suit, Amber Heard said the actor is a “remarkable man” when he’s “clean and sober” but the “other side of him was a monster.”
Amber said she had been “so in love” with Johnny and had “always held out hope” that he would get sober.
The British court also heard text messages to her mother in 2013 when Amber described Johnny as “violent and crazy” and said, “I’m heartbroken that this is who I love.”
And according to written testimony, Amber’s sister “begged” the actress not to marry Johnny. Her younger sibling also said she saw him punch her “really hard” during an argument.
Depp is suing The Sun for calling him a “wife-beater” in an old article.

Taylor Swift has been quiet during lockdown, but she’s also been busy — working on an album that she dropped Thursday night.

The 16-song album contains collaborations with some guys Taylor calls her “musical heroes” — Jack Antonoff, Justin Vernon of Bon Iver and Aaron Dessner, the frontman of alt-rockers The National.
A video for “Cardigan” will also arrived Thursday night.
