Perry sends olive branch to Swift

Associated Press

Taylor Swift has received a peace offering from Katy Perry before launching her new tour.

Swift shared a video on her Instagram Stories on Tuesday showing a package that Perry sent that included an olive branch. Inside was a letter in which Perry wrote that she was “deeply sorry” and wanted to “clear the air.”

Swift says it “means so much to me” and her video was captioned “Thank you Katy.”

The feud between the singers began in 2014 after Swift told “Rolling Stone” that another singer had taken one of her dancers. Perry then compared Swift to a character from “Mean Girls.”

Swift kicked off her Reputation tour Tuesday at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

Iron Man suit stolen

Police are investigating the disappearance of an expensive “Iron Man” suit from a Los Angeles movie prop storage facility.

Los Angeles police Officer Christopher No said Wednesday a police report was filed Tuesday and that the suit's estimated value is $325,000.

The suit apparently went missing from the facility in the Pacoima neighborhood between February and April 25.

KCBS-TV first reported the investigation and says the crimson-and-gold costume was used in the 2008 “Iron Man” film, which starred Robert Downey Jr.

Eagles legacy

Glenn Frey passed away two years ago but his family is keeping his legacy alive in a resilient way.

Deacon Frey, his 24-year-old son, is on the road with the Eagles in his father's shoes, and Taylor Frey, Glenn Frey's daughter, is working as a road manager.

It starts up again Thursday in Vancouver, Canada.

Cindy Frey, his widow and executor of his estate, admits the first few shows of the tour were tough. But she also says it has helped them through their grief and brought them closer.

The Eagles co-founder died in 2016 at the age of 67. Cindy Frey said she wants people to remember the diversity of her husband's sound.
