Prince’s music label is suing Jay Z

Carrie Fisher is spilling the beans… Ricky Martin in Vegas… Khloe Kardashian’s new show… Frank Ocean talks about Blonde… and Prince’s music label is suing Jay Z

Carrie Fisher has written a new memoir called The Princess Diarist, and she is spilling the beans about the affair she had with Harrison Ford on the set of the original “Star Wars” movie 40 years ago!! Carrie told “People” magazine that their affair lasted for three months. She said, “It was Han and Leia during the week, and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend.” She was 19 at the time. Harrison was 33, married, and the father of two. Carrie did give Harrison the heads up about revealing their affair by sending him a draft. “People” reached out to him for a comment but didn’t receive one. The Princess Diarist is in bookstores on Tuesday.

Following in the footsteps of artists like Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin is the latest artist to announce his own Vegas residency! Ricky said he will be the headliner at the Park Theater at Monte Carlo. We don’t know exactly when he’ll be performing but I guess we’ll find out Monday because that’s when the tickets go on sale.

Khloe Kardashian has totally transformed her body and she’s turning it into a new show, “Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian.” Khloe says she was always overweight as a kid, eating when she was stressed out or sad. She says she learned how to put all that energy into something positive — working out. Her show features the top trainers in Hollywood, including Simone De La Rue, Gunnar Peterson and Harley Pasternak. Khloe says if we follow the same path she did, “the first two or three weeks you’re working out so hard….sometimes you’re not losing weight, you’re gaining weight because you’re gaining muscle.” But she promises it will all be worth it. She added, “Let’s make the haters our biggest motivators.” “Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian” debuts Jan. 12 on E!

Frank Ocean isn’t submitting his latest album “Blonde” for Grammy consideration, telling the “New York Times” that this is his “Colin Kaepernick moment.” Frank said the Grammys don’t properly award black artists and that few have ever won the album of the year. Frank said, “That institution certainly has nostalgic importance. It just doesn’t seem to be representing very well for people who come from where I come from, and hold down what I hold down.”

Prince’s NPG Records is suing Jay Z’s Roc Nation for illegally streaming almost every song Prince ever released during his lifetime. Before he passed away, Prince had signed a deal for Roc Nation to stream his last album, “Hit N Run: Phase 1” on Tidal. But on June 7 — which would’ve been Prince’s 58th birthday — Roc Nation just started streaming pretty much everything Prince had ever released, which they were not authorized to do. So now NPG is suing Tidal for copyright infringement and to block them from streaming any Prince music outside of that final album.
