The big news of the day, of course, the death of music legend, Prince at the age of 57.  Prince was found unresponsive in an elevator at his Paisley Park compound and an autopsy is scheduled for today.  TMZ is reporting that the icon dealt with a drug overdose last week and his plane was forced to make an emergency landing.  He had also, reportedly been battling the flu.

Landmarks around the world went purple to honor Prince; the Eiffel Tower, the Superdome, The Empire State Building, the Forum in LA, Target Field in Minneapolis all went purple, along with Niagara Falls; although the falls happened to be purple to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday and it was a coincidence.

Yankees all-star, Alex Rodriguez also paid tribute to Prince, walking up to bat to a different Prince song each time.

While the drama continues at Live with Kelly & Michael, sources close to the show say ABC brass isn’t concerned Kelly will leave, despite her being blindsided by Michael announcing his move to GMA.  The sources say Kelly makes about $15 million a year, but her spending habits and lifestyle eat up most of that.  So while she makes a lot of money, her and hubby Mark Consuelos spend a lot too.

Jodie Sweetin is the latest star to suffer an injury at Dancing with the Stars.  Sweetin was rushed to the hospital after injuring her ankle during a rehearsal.  She is third person to get injured this season after Nyle DiMarco received stitches and Mark Ballas injured his back.

Happy 30th Birthday Beastmode!!
