Prince
Prince being Prince, he surprised everyone this week with a tour announcement (via his backing band, 3rd Eye Girl, on a podcast hosted by Dr. Funkenberry—yes, these are all real names and rather Prince-appropriate): The Purple One will be hitting the West Coast for 28 separate shows in seven cities.

Lady Gaga
It appears that director Baz Luhrmann is taking the slight release-date delay in the release of his ludicrously 3-D adaptation of The Great Gatsby, by expanding the film’s soundtrack.  Starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire in the story that is often viewed as the great American novel, one would expect a...

Prince booting Kim Kardashian offstage during his Madison Square Garden concert Monday night is awesome. But having the actual footage of Prince telling Kim Kardashian to "Get off the stage!" is close to priceless. After being pulled on stage by Prince, Kardashian basically froze.

Prince: 'The Internet Is Completely Over'

Prince
Because he’s one of the most gifted musicians in pop music in the past thirty years (but certainly not because the resultant crush of endless amounts of money, fame, adulation, hangers-on, yes men, and sycophants have left him totally alienated from reality while conversely bloating his ego to point of making decisions that just make no sense), Prince can pretty much do...

We all know how much Prince loves the Twin Cities. Just take a listen to the fight song he wrote for the Minnesota Vikings before the Super Bowl. Well, he's still tight with his hometown.
