Prince

A Minnesota court has turned down bids by five people trying to be declared half-siblings of Prince. Such a ruling would have entitled them to part of the late musician's estate.

Monday's ruling disqualified Darcell Gresham Johnston, Loya Janel Wilson, Loyal James Gresham the Third, Orrine Gresham and Venita Jackson Leverette -- all of whom claimed that John Nelson wasn’t really Prince’s father. They claimed they were Prince’s half-siblings through other men.

In a new online trailer for the concert film, the Pink Floyd guitarist reveals he's got a batch of songs that didn't make Rattle That Lock, which he was touring behind when the film was shot. He says, "There are several songs that are close to being complete, which didn't make it onto this album. I can't see myself doing another tour with making another album first, and that takes me awhile. It took 10 years last time, and I'm really hoping -- without making any promises -- that it won't take 10 years this time, that I'll get back in and start working again. And following that, I'll be out again."

Live at Pompeii will be shown in theaters on September 13th and then released in multiple formats on September 29th. Check out the trailer on YouTube.
