Happy Thursday, this is Anna bringing you bite-sized chunks of today's top stories.

Confessions - Jay-Z has admitted to cheating on Beyonce for the first time in an interview about his life. He told The New York Times Style Magazine that he'd built up walls due to issues from his childhood, which led to him shutting down and infidelity. ‘The hardest thing is seeing pain on someone's face that you caused, and then have to deal with yourself,’ he said.

Gone too far - Donald Trump has publicly scorned UK Prime Minister Theresa May over her criticism of his retweeting of anti-Muslim propaganda, igniting a diplomatic spat between the two ‘allies’. ‘Don’t focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom,’ the US president tweeted on Wednesday evening. ‘We are doing just fine!’ May is on a tour of the Middle East at the moment and has not replied yet, but it could damage the warm relationship the pair have previously shared.

Oceans suffering - Concerns over litter in the world’s oceans are back in the spotlight after a Canadian fishing crew found a lobster with the blue and red Pepsi logo imprinted on its claw. Trapped in the waters off Grand Manan, New Brunswick, the lobster had been loaded onto a crate to have its claws banded when Karissa Lindstrand came across it, The Guardian reports. The image has sparked another fierce debate online about how to tackle growing pollution in the oceans.

Disney listened - Disney has picked Chinese actor Liu Yifei to play Mulan in an upcoming film, following accusations against Hollywood of 'whitewashing'. Several Hollywood films have faced criticism in recent months for featuring white actors in Asian roles. Thousands took part in an online campaign calling for an Asian actress to be cast as Mulan.

Jandals, anyone? - New Zealand’s prime minister has sent Ed Sheeran an informal citizenship test via video – featuring thorny questions such as ‘do you know what jandals are?’ – after the British singer repeated his desire to live in the country. Watch the video, shared on social media, below:

Disgraced senator - Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore accused liberals, gays, bisexuals, and socialists of fabricating sexual harassment allegations against him in an effort to keep his conservative Christian views out of Washington. The Alabama Republican has repeatedly and emphatically denied accusations that he initiated a sexual encounter with a woman when she was 14 and he was 32, as well as the accounts of several other women who have said Moore inappropriately pursued them when they were teenagers.
