Katy Perry Pushes “Smile” release ahead two weeks to August 28
“Katy wrote in a tweet thread: “Welp. I hate to throw this bad news at you like a pie in the face…but if there’s anything 2020 taught me, it’s to not get too attached to plans and be malleable. Due to unavoidable production delays, my album #SMILE will now be released ?? weeks later on August 28. To make this up to you, starting this Sunday (Aug 2) and until the album drops (or until #Babycat …whichever comes first) join me for #SmileSundays! Every Sunday, time TBA soon, I’m going to go on LIVE for 30 minutes or more and talk all things SMILE. You’ll see new merch… I’ll play some snippets… maybe we’ll go live together… we’ll def have a good chat! Clowns-n-Cats – Thanks for being so flexible in this time… it’s a wild one, for sure, but I hope the patience will be worth the wait! Love, Katy”

Heidi Klum & Howie Mandel Talk New Changes to Filming ‘AGT’ During Pandemic – “It was very strange, but so nice at the same time… Nice to actually see your friends in the flesh.” She added, “We get tested [for COVID-19] before, no one touched me, and I didn’t touch anyone. I did all my hair and makeup myself, I mic myself, I bring my own food… People are there; everyone is wearing masks and gear and gloves. They are all far apart…We also have a nurse there.” Terri asked Howie, a well-known germaphobe, if he had any reservations about returning. He admitted, “I have been terrified almost the whole time, the whole season. The first thing that terrified me, to be totally candid with you, was Heidi [being sick in March]. I was really concerned and at that time, as luck would have it, it turned out not to be COVID-19, and even more importantly, she is fine.” Heidi added, “I was worried too…This was in the very beginning. Now we know so much more… I was like, I probably have it and who knows if I gave it to all these people?”
