Sparks are flying between Taylor Swift and the London locals – the feathery ones, that is.
The singer has been spending time across the pond, reportedly in rehearsals for a movie version of Les Miserables, but she’s managed to snag a few hours for herself, going shopping on Portobello Road and getting chocolate from Old Bond Street.
On Tuesday, wearing a cat-print skirt, Swift visited the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain in Hyde Park, where she also communed with the fauna in the Serpentine River. Standing under a brown umbrella in the rain, Swift snapped cell phone photos of the swans and ducks in the water.
The next day, Swift got even more intimate with the London wildlife, visiting the London Zoo, where she checked out various bird species and stepped inside the butterfly exhibit.
