PRINCE LIKES YOUTUBE

CHANHASSEN, Minn. (AP) -- Where has Prince been the most vigilant about people posting his music? YouTube. Where does Prince go when he wants to hear music? YouTube. Prince is notorious for aggressively pursuing what he sees as copyright infringement on YouTube. Prince himself, though, will watch everything from old James Brown clips to songs by new U.K. artist FKA Twigs. Um, irony? Prince's response: "People need to stop tripping." In the meantime, Prince is releasing a new album, "ART OFFICAL AGE." He's also releasing music from his latest protege' act, 3RDEYEGIRL, called "PLECTRUMELECTRUM."

ADAM ANT EXPLAINS HOW HE ENDED UP ON "MOTOWN 25" SPECIAL

LONDON (AP) -- Perhaps the oddest performer on the "Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever" special from 1983 is Adam Ant. He says he got the gig because his manager knew Motown founder Berry Gordy Junior, and Gordy and Michael Jackson liked Ant's videos. Ant says Gordy asked him to participate because he wanted Ant to be the "forever" part of "Yesterday, Today, Forever" by doing a Motown cover. Ant says his inclusion in the show was as big a surprise to him as anyone, and he got to play with all his childhood heroes in one night. "Motown 25" comes out on DVD for the first time today.

SAMMY HAGAR RECONSIDERS BEING A ROCK STAR

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Sammy Hagar thinks he looks stupid being a rock star at age 66. Hagar says he loves to do it and he wants to make his fans happy, but he finds it "embarrassing."

TRISHA YEARWOOD ADJUSTS TO ROAD MEALS

NASHVILLE (AP) -- Trisha Yearwood has to be extra careful about what she eats while she's on tour with her husband, Garth Brooks. Yearwood says it's easy on the road to eat garbage and eat at the wrong times. She doesn't like going on stage with a full stomach, and by the time she's finished, it's after 11 p.m. and she's too pumped to sleep. She says the only thing she can get at 2 a.m. is probably a burger. Yearwood lives by the 80/20 rule. She will eat healthfully for 80 percent of the time, and she says, "Twenty percent of the time, I'm going to have that burger, and I'm going to enjoy it."
