Taylor Swift and Katy Perry Drank Tea and Talked About Their Zodiac Signs After Reconciliation

Taylor Swift is opening up about her renewed friendship with Katy Perry.

After a years-long rocky relationship, the two pop stars publicly ended their feud when they costarred in Swift’s “You Need to Calm Down” music video in June, wearing matching burger and French fry costumes.

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Swift, 29, said that she and Perry, 34, had a “really, really long talk” while they were reconnecting, where they discussed their astrological signs over a cup of tea.

“Katy and I were talking about our signs … Of course we were,” Swift said with a laugh. “We were talking about our signs because we had this really, really long talk when we were reconnecting and stuff. And I remember in the long talk, she was like, ‘If we had one glass of white wine right now, we’d both be crying.’ Because we were drinking tea.”

“We’ve had some really good conversations,” Swift continued. “We were talking about how we’ve had miscommunications with people in the past, not even specifically with each other. She’s like, ‘I’m a Scorpio. Scorpios just strike when they feel threatened.’”

“And I was like, ‘Well, I’m an archer. We literally stand back, assess the situation, process how we feel about it, raise a bow, pull it back, and fire.’ So it’s completely different ways of processing pain, confusion, misconception,” she added. “And oftentimes I’ve had this delay in feeling something that hurts me and then saying that it hurts me. Do you know what I mean?”

Swift compared the attributes of her astrological sign — Sagittarius — to her reaction after Kanye West interrupted her acceptance speech onstage at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

“I can understand how people in my life would have been like, ‘Whoa, I didn’t know that was how you felt.’ Because it takes me a second,” the musician said. “If you watch the video of the 2009 VMAs, I literally freeze. I literally stand there. And that is how I handle any discomfort, any pain. I stand

Americas Got Talent Standout Kodi Lee Leaves Judges in Tears with Latest Moving Performance

Americas Got Talent Standout Kodi Lee Leaves Judges in Tears with Latest Moving Performance

Kodi Lee’s latest performance on America’s Got Talent will leave you breathless.

In one of his final performances before the season finale, Lee delivered a heartbreaking and powerful rendition of Freya Ridings’ “Lost Without You” on Tuesday’s live show.

Lee’s performance was met with a a tearful standing ovation from the audience — and the judges.

Nearly all the judges struggled to maintain their composure while giving their feedback, with Simon Cowell admitting he was especially struck by the performance.

“One of the most beautiful things I’ve ever, ever heard,” Cowell said. “That was as good as I’ve ever heard.”

The audience then began chanting Lee’s name as he smiled on stage.

Lee, who was born with optic nerve hypoplasia and diagnosed with autism at age 4, was an early standout this season after becoming Gabrielle Union’s Golden Buzzer winner.

The singer’s mother, Tina, recently opened up to PEOPLE about his son’s journey on AGT, saying the experience has given her son a “boost” in confidence.

“He’s always had this boost of energy. I think he’s been holding this in to give it all to the world,” she said. “I think what he’s receiving in return is what he’s been looking for. He’s always had this talent, this raw, pure talent, that he’s been wanting to show to the world.”

Union, 46, previously told PEOPLE that Kodi “will change the world” with his talent and his story — and Tina said audiences are changing his world in return.

“And actually I see the change that he’s getting something back from them, that’s what has been amazing. It’s almost like he’s changing the world, he is changing the world. But at the same time, it’s changing him. It’s beautiful,” said Tina.

“It’s so wonderful because what the supporters are doing, even though he’s inspiring them, they don’t realize that they’re inspiring him,” Tina added. “He has a hard time communicating but reading their comments is actually helping him to understand how they are feeling. It’s like he’s starting to und

But Morton and Bukowski reassured fans late Tuesday night, both sharing an update on Instagram to reveal that they are still very much together.

“As you’ve seen..It’s been the furthest from easy. From the decision to take the leap onto the beach, navigating what was real and staying true to myself, and my world that spun out afterward,” Morton, 26, wrote in a lengthy post, accompanied by a photo of the couple holding hands. “None of it has been a walk in the park. BUT I’ve learned, a lot.”

She highlighted some of the many lessons she’s learned and continued, “but most of all, I’ve learned that happiness isn’t something to look for in your partner. Your partner can make you laugh but your partner is not responsible for your happiness. Happiness is found within and sharing that with each other is what lights up a room!”

As you’ve seen..It’s been the furthest from easy. From the decision to take the leap onto the beach, navigating what was real and staying true to myself, and my world that spun out afterward. None of it has been a walk in the park. BUT I’ve learned, a lot. I’ve learned to be more direct, how to challenge myself and others, I’ve learned that I’m empathetic to a fault, that love languages are so important to understanding others, that self sabotage can be found in many forms, and BOY have I learned what patience looks like. But most of all, I’ve learned that happiness isn’t something to look for in your partner. Your partner can make you laugh but your partner is not responsible for your happiness. Happiness is found within and sharing that with each other is what lights up a room! Communication is the link to everything, which is something we sure did LACK in paradise and shortly after. It took us a few months to really get our bearings (especially with some exceptional and une

Missing Toy Monkey Found at Buckingham Palace And Returned to Schoolgirl After Letter to Queen

Missing Toy Monkey Found at Buckingham Palace And Returned to Schoolgirl After Letter to Queen

Like many little schoolgirls, Savannah Hart was given the chance to take one of the class stuffed animals home for the summer break for her and her family to take care of.

The 5-year-old from Australia took home Harriet, the toy monkey, and was excited for a trip to Buckingham Palace, when things took a turn for the worst.

While visiting Queen Elizabeth’s home, the little girl misplaced the toy during her tour and when she left, assumed that Harriet would be forever stuck in the grand palace, at the bottom of the lost property collection. But after staff at Woodside Preschool in Adelaide Hills, South Australia, wrote a letter to the Queen to see if it had been found, tenacious palace staff set to work to find it.

Aided by the letter and pictures of Harriet, during the monkey’s tour around the U.K. and Europe with Savannah’s family, it was found and was returned to the little girl. But Harriet wasn’t alone on the 9,000 mile journey — the monkey was also accompanied by Rex, a stuffed corgi who was sent from the palace.

And though Harriet made it safely back to Australia, prior to leaving the U.K., the monkey spent some time helping out with palace tours and was given the royal treatment.

“We aim to give every visitor to Buckingham Palace a memorable experience and after we had found Harriet the monkey near the Family Pavilion, she spent some time helping out the Visitor Services team before heading home,” a spokesperson for the Royal Collection, which runs the visitor experience at Buckingham Palace over the summer, said. “We hope Harriet enjoyed telling Rex the corgi about her adventures on the journey back to Australia.”
