Is Kylie Jenner's reading list proof she's back together with Travis Scott?
After months of rumors about the nature of Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott's post-split relationship, Kylie's reading list may be the most telling clue that she's back together with her daughter Stormi's dad. Over the weekend, the makeup mogul shared a peek at three books she's reading. According to UsWeekly, this was the one on top of the pile: "Only Love Is Real: A Story of Soulmates Reunited," by Brian L. Weiss. The Instagram Story book post comes just a week after multiple outlets reported they were going strong again, a sentiment two Us sources echoed recently. "Kylie still loves Travis and this isn't considered a full breakup to either of them," one insider said. "They have had breaks throughout their relationship," the second source explained. "He [has] been spending a lot of time at his Beverly Hills house and she's been staying in Calabasas, so they didn't have a traditional relationship in terms of spending the night together every night. This is not a traditional relationship, but they have been very much in love." The tab adds that Kylie appeared to be hinting she and Travis were on again at the end of February when she shared three photos from 2017 that showed her looking flirty with Travis at a time when the two were very much together.

She later shared a clip from the episode that had her standing much closer than 6-feet away from her costars Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan. "This was before the 6 foot social distance rule," she wrote (via ET). "Sometimes I wish that always applied between @lukebryanonline @lionelrichie and I." Badum-ching.

Prince Harry, Duchess Meghan and son Archie expected to return to the UK to visit the queen
Archie Mountbatten-Windsor missed the chance to see his great-grandmother when his parents recently returned to the UK to complete their final engagements as senior members of the royal family. But the 10-month-old will reportedly have another chance to see the Queen and the rest of the royal family this summer. People reports Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan accepted Queen Elizabeth's invitation for the pair to return to the UK with their son in the coming months, presumably in the hopes the coronavirus outbreak that kept Archie at his new home in Canada this month will be better controlled. If all goes as planned and they're able to travel, the trip would be Meghan and Archie's first trip to Balmoral castle in the Scottish Highlands. Harry, Meghan and Archie remain "much-loved members of the family," according to a People source, who adds: "That stuff runs deep. There is an element of working things through."
Why happiness is not a 'simple' proposition for Lady Gaga
A cybord-esque styled Lady Gaga covers the new issue of Paper Magazine, where she opens up about everything from the leak of her new track "Stupid Love" to the challenges inherent in finding happiness and holding onto it. Explaining why she didn't mind the leak, Gaga pointed out that ultimately, "the art piece I'm making" involves the music video, the choreography and the "mixed, mastered and finished visuals," rather than the version that was leaked early. Gaga, who's dating tech CEO Michael Polasky, was similarly accepting when she was asked about happiness. Telling the magazine it's not a black-and-white answer, she said: "[Happiness] is not that simple. I have clinical depression. There's something going on in my brain where the dopamine and serotonin are not firing the same way, and I can't get there," according to JustJared. "If someone says, 'Come on, just be happy,'" she added, "I'm like, 'You f—— be happy.'"

The post was met with plenty of positive responses, including a few shoutouts to the star's Batsuit-wearing past.

"Many years have passed and I have not only made 3 movies with him, but I also count on him as a great friend," she continued.

He is one of the most generous people I know." She went on to describe spending "every single day with him while we shot 'Pirates of the Caribbean,'" during her first pregnancy. "My husband [Javier Bardem] and I will never forget the sweetness, protection, and kindness he treated me with during every single step of that process," she said.
