LABELED: Prince, 45, who once carped that he was a "slave" to his former record label, has signed with Columbia Records after several years as an independent artist, both parties have announced. The worldwide deal initially covers just the veteran pop star's upcoming album, "Musicology," which Columbia will release in the U.S. on April 20. Said Prince in a statement: "I am really an artist and musician at heart, that's what I do. 'Musicology' has no boundaries or formats. It is long overdue to return to the art and craft of music -- that's what this album is about. School's in session."

LAUNCHED: "Seinfeld" star and KFC spokesman Jason Alexander wasn't talking chicken when he spoke out about a grassroots Middle East peace plan in Tel Aviv, Israel, on Tuesday. Alexander was trumpeting the "One Voice" campaign, which hopes to get Israelis and Palestinians to vote on a peace agreement via the Internet, the Associated Press reports. IBM will tabulate the votes at its Israeli headquarters, and proponents of the group hope they can use those results to hammer out an agreement. The campaign has received support from such celebrities as Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston.
