And Penélope must have impressed Prince and his band with her moves because the actress left with a souvenir: drumsticks!

Prince Talks about His Struggle with Epilepsy

Originally posted 04/28/2009 10:30AM

What prompted the flashy, eccentric persona that helped make Prince a king of the music world? The singer reveals he was compensating for a painful childhood struggle with epilepsy.

"I've never spoken about this before but I was born epileptic," the reclusive singer told PBS's Tavis Smiley in an interview Monday night. "I used to have seizures when I was young. My mother and father didn't know what to do or how to handle it but they did the best they could with what little they had."

With another baby on the way with wife Britney Spears, Kevin Federline is about to become a dad for the fourth time. And the rapper-dancer gets a vote of confidence from his ex, actress Shar Jackson. "He's an amazing dad," Jackson tells us. "Like when Kori was first born, her whole first year and a half, he was there. I mean, he wouldn't leave her side. He's a good guy, and when he's not with (his kids), it hurts his heart that he misses them so much."

Prince's Royal Treatment

Originally posted 03/24/2006 06:00AM

Before Prince went onstage before 1,200 fans at Miami club Mansion – where he played new songs along with Purple Rain-era hits and a cover of Janet Jackson's "What Have You Done for Me Lately?" – he spent the previous night at hot spot Prive with his newest protégée, Tamar. And he had some unusual requests. First he had the staff close all the vents in the VIP section because he was chilly. Then he ordered three bottles of port wine – telling his server he needed a straw so he wouldn't stain his teeth. The royal treatment continued the next night after his concert, when Mansion set up its exclusive upstairs room Level Six for him for the first time since the club opened a year and half ago. But for Prince it was all old hat: The room used to be his private lair in the '90s when he owned the nightclub in its former life as Glam Slam.
