– The Great Purple One known as Prince announced yesterday that he will be embarking on a huge tour soon, and among those stylish girls and guys who will be joining him (like Sheila E.) is our very own Janelle Monae. He’ll start off the jaunt with a residence in New York, which is fine, as long as he brings the tour down our way. Rolling Stone was at the press conference and has more details. Our favorite quote? “Bring footspray because it’s gonna be funky.”
– Madonna wrote an only-slightly-snarky-by-Madonna-standards letter during the filming of A League Of Their Own, and Letter of Note have it up on their blog, thanks to the Hard Rock Memorabilia website.
– The newly-reunited (with Robbie Williams) Take That have released video for their new single “The Flood,” which features the strapping lads in a rowing competition. Idolator has the video.
– The Little Five Points Halloween Festival and Parade is this weekend and you should really go. There will be music from bands like The Pinx, Grinder Nova and Young Antiques, food from Westside Creamery, Sheik Burritos, Pallookaville Corndogs, Kings of Pops and more, an artists market, and, of course, the coolest Halloween parade in the city.
