The artist still known as Prince really doesn't like it when people take his picture. He's a notorious control freak when it comes to his image and his team has instructed ushers at all of his 'Welcome 2 America' tour stops to vigilantly enforce the no-photo rule, even if people try to snap them on their cell phones. And yet, aware of the irony, midway through his shows, Prince often encoura...

A new report claims that a pre-Grammys party in Hollywood was graced by Prince, but only after another singer was disinvited. R&B crooner Eric Benet -- Halle Berry's ex-husband, now engaged to Prince's ex-wife, Manuela Testolini -- was shut out of the Essence Black Women in Music event last week, the NY Post says, because organizers believed the couple would make Prince uncomfortable. Th...

Pop-Ed: When performers get to be a certain age and have paid many, many dues in an unforgiving industry, they start to see themselves as transcendent. They cease to be average people and rise to the top of Mt. Olympus as godlike figures. We've seen it happen with stars like Madonna and Elton John and now, though he has admittedly always seen himself as something apart, Prince has joined their ...

The Internet officially ended its bold and exciting run of relevancy, according to pop culture touchstone and 'Batdance' singer Prince. "The Internet's completely over," the 52-year-old recording artist told the UK's Daily Mirror. "The Internet's like MTV. At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated. Anyway, all these computers and digital gadgets are no good. They just fill your he...

Now is definitely Ke$ha's moment. Her party anthem 'Tik Tok' sold more downloads in a single week than any female artist in history, hitting number one in five countries. Her album 'Animal' debuted atop the US Billboard chart. And she's already got a notorious backstory that would make Madonna jealous. Kesha Rose Sebert grew up in Nashville as the daughter of songwriter and single mom Pebe Sebe...

The Who will be performing at halftime of Super Bowl XLIV this Sunday. Or, more accurately, Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend, with some other people, will be performing at halftime, -- considering bassist John Entwistle died in 2002 and drummer Keith Moon died in 1978. (If Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr were the halftime act, would they be billed as "The Beatles"?) The Super Bowl halftime show h...

Minnesota native Prince "saw the future" while watching the Vikings throttle the Cowboys last week. He's created a pop-slash-fight song to take Brett Favre and team to the Super Bowl. Diane von Furstenberg appeared on 'The View' to plug a new collection of home furnishings. And jilted mistress YaVaughnie Wilkins has spent $250,000 on billboards to take revenge on millionaire mogul Charles Phillips...

At his Friday night solo show at New York City's Beacon Theater, Nick Jonas took time to bring out a pair of very special guests, proving the formula that if 2,000 teenage girls scream at X decibels for one Jonas Brother, they will risk hoarseness -- and the deafness of their parents -- to screech at 3X for three Jonas Brothers. "There are two people I want to share this moment with," Nick said...

Boyz II Men changed the game when it comes to R&B singing, harmony and the public's tolerance for love songs. Boy banders have nothing on the Philly natives, who are the best selling male group of all time -- and they're back to take the music industry by storm with 'Love,' an album full of covers you might not expect from the pitch-perfect pals. PopEater was lucky enough to chat with Boyz II ...
