Man charged in theft of Legend's bag, $25K cufflinks at JFK

Authorities have cuffed a man charged with stealing Grammy winner John Legend's Louis Vuitton bag containing $25,000 Cartier cufflinks from an airport luggage cart in New York.

District Attorney Richard Brown says 63-year-old Agustin Hilario swiped the bag Thursday when it was momentarily left unattended on a luggage cart at Kennedy Airport.

Brown says Hilario was identified through surveillance camera footage. He was arrested on charges including grand larceny and possession of stolen property.

Hilario was awaiting arraignment in Queens criminal court Friday. It's not known if he has an attorney who can speak on his behalf.

Legend is a singer, songwriter, musician and actor who co-starred in the film "La La Land."

The prosecutor says Legend's possessions, including the $25,000 panther-head cufflinks, were returned to him.

John Mayer's new single is ode to ex-girlfriend Katy Perry

John Mayer's new single, "Still Feel Like Your Man," is about ex-girlfriend Katy Perry.

Lyrics for the upbeat, but wistful single include, "I still keep your shampoo in my shower in case you want to wash your hair." In an interview with The New York Times, Mayer rhetorically asks "who else would I be thinking about" but Perry.

Mayer adds that "it's a testament to the fact that I have not dated a lot of people in the last five, six years."

Mayer has had other high-profile girlfriends over the years, including Jessica Simpson and Taylor Swift.

The singer tells the Times he uses an exclusive dating app these days.
