Prince reveals big personal news that he has never shared before…he had epilepsy as a child. Prince shared this information during an interview on PBS with Tavis Smiley. This could be one of the reasons that Prince developed his flashy persona by trying to compensate how he grew up. You can imagine that he was teased by other children along with other childhood issues. His mother told him the story that “one day I walked into her and said, Mom, I’m not going to be sick anymore, and she said why? And I said, because an angel told me so. “Prince says that he doesn’t remember ever saying that but his mother told him the story and from that day on he wasn’t sick anymore. That story seems very much like Prince, don’t you think? Prince has been out and about promoting his newest album “LotusFlow3r”.
Are newlyweds Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt flirting with disaster? The two headed to Cabo San Lucas in Mexico where Heidi is working on her new music video. Spencer talked to Ryan Seacrest this morning on his radio show, and told him that they are taking precautions and are in isolation, wearing masks and washing their hands everywhere they go. I don’t know, but in light of the current situation and working so hard to be careful, due to the swine flu outbreak, maybe they should have postponed or changed locations, but that is just my opinion. The two are planning on taking their honeymoon in about a week perhaps to Fiji or Tahiti but they are still talking over the details with MTV. Yea, we will all get to be there for the honeymoon.

Now you might be thinking that Lauren Conrad said she would never be at their wedding and here she was. IT seems that everyone was a bit shocked.
