Katy Perry Shows Off Adorable Baby Gift From Taylor Swift

Katy Perry took to Instagram on Monday (September 14) to share photos of an adorable personalized gift - an embroidered pink blanket - presented to her newborn daughter Daisy Dove Bloom by Taylor Swift.

"Miss Daisy Dove adores her hand embroidered blankie from miss @taylorswift. Hope it's one she drags around for years till it becomes an unrecognizable shred that she keeps in her pocket as a teenager," Perry captioned the post, also sharing a close-up shot the "Baby Bloom" stitch.

She tagged the location of her post as "Stream Folklore," the name of Taylor's eighth studio album.

Perry gave birth to her first child last month with fiancé Orlando Bloom. Swift probably sent the gift about a month after the couple announced that they were having a daughter.

Lady A Sued For Copyright Infringement By Blues Singer With Same Name

Blues singer Anita "Lady A" White has filed a lawsuit against country band Lady Antebellum, who changed their name to Lady A last month.

Lady A, who has been using the moniker for more than 20 years, is taking legal action against the country trio for trademark infringement.

The Seattle-based artist filed suit in U.S. District Court's Western District of Washington, Seattle Division, on Tuesday.

Lady A Entertainment LLC and its singers Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood are the respondents.

Lady A demands the right for sole usage of the moniker and compensatory damages from the group.

"Lady Antebellum's decision to replace the name Lady Antebellum with Lady A was undertaken with willful disregard of Ms. White's rights in her Lady A trademark, which she has used for nearly thirty years," Fox News quoted the legal document as saying.

The former Lady Antebellum had previously filed suit against White in Nashville's U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee, accusing the singer of "attempting to enforce purported trademark rights in a mark that Plaintiffs have held for more than a decade."

Blanco Brown Expected To Make Full Recovery After Head-On Collision

Blanco Brown has been released from the Intensive Care Unit two weeks after getting seriously injured in a head-on collision.

"Brown has since relocated out of the ICU, following an additional 12-hour plus surgery and is continuing his recovery in the hospital," BBR Music Group said in a statement. "His team of doctors do not anticipate Brown requiring any additional surgeries and expect him to make a full recovery."

"Blanco, his family and his friends wish to express that they have been humbled and deeply touched by the outpouring of love from all over the world. They would like to thank everyone for their support and ask for continued prayers for Blanco during this time," the statement added.

The accident took place near his home in Atlanta on August 31, when his motorcycle hit head on with a car, inflicting "significant injuries."

"The Git Up" singer was driving in the wrong lane when he collided with a Ford Ranger, The Tennessean reported.
