Prince’s “Deliverance” will not be delivered — at least not on Friday.
A federal judge in Minnesota ruled late Wednesday that Ian Boxill, a songwriter and producer who planned to release a collection of previously unheard Prince songs this week, is not allowed to do so, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
In her ruling, the judge sided with the estate of the late pop singer, which argued that the “Deliverance” EP violated a contract Boxill had entered into that gave Prince sole ownership of any music they recorded together.
There's a new Bruce Springsteen song out, and it takes on President Trump.
“That’s What Makes Us Great” comes from Springsteen and his longtime friend and collaborator Joe Grushecky, who was inspired to write the tune after Trump was accused of mocking a disabled reporter and finally put pen to paper around the time the new president took office.
“I had this song, and Bruce and I had been talking,” Grushecky told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “I sent it to him and he liked it. I said, ‘What do you think about singing on it?’ He gave it the Bruce treatment.”

The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards will return to the best coast in August. The cable network announced Thursday that this year's ceremony will be held at the Forum in Inglewood on Aug. 27.
"The City of Inglewood welcomes the return of the MTV VMAs to the number 1 concert venue in California, the Forum,” said Inglewood mayor James Butts in a statement. "Once again, Madison Square Garden set the standard for both East and West Coasts."
The VMAs have split their locations between the two coasts for the last decade, specifically in New York City and the greater Los Angeles area. 2007 was the last time the awards eschewed the coast, landing instead in Las Vegas at the Palms Casino Resort.
Celebrities often focus on their daily lives. But here's the thing about social media: It ain't about you. Fans don't care about what you're eating, where you're shopping or what products you have to sell.
Serena Williams is pregnant, her representative confirmed Wednesday afternoon, hours after the tennis star posted and then deleted what appeared to be a baby announcement on social media.
"I'm happy to confirm Serena is expecting a baby this Fall," the athlete's rep told the Associated Press via email.
Williams' early morning Snapchat selfie showed the 35-year-old athlete in profile, wearing a bright yellow one-piece swimsuit and sporting the bittiest of bellies — captioned with the declaration, "20 weeks."
If the trailer is anything to go by, "Cloak & Dagger" is a definite departure in tone and style from Marvel's other ABC and Netflix shows. But the appearance of the Roxxon Corp. sign should reassure fans that the series is definitely a part of the larger Marvel universe.
After Bill O'Reilly's Fox News bosses announced Wednesday that he had been fired — well, it was a "mutual decision," which among the rich and famous is a very close cousin to the ubiquitous "amicable divorce" — the reaction from celebrities on social media offered few surprises.
In other words, nobody was shedding any tears.
Mia Farrow, Debra Messing and Alyssa Milano framed the news in a feminist light.
Fox firing Bill O'Reilly is huge and hopefully sends an effective signal to all guys, however powerful, who harass & maul women
While many other famous names were being floated as better choices — that happens every year — an "anyone but her" sentiment seemed to be popular this time around, given the whole five-times-in-28-years thing.
Julia Roberts is very beautiful. But she is not "5 times named Most Beautiful Woman in the World" beautiful. Give someone else a turn
