PRINCE-POSSIBLE OVERDOSE BEING INVESITIGATED
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Investigators are looking into whether Prince died from a drug overdose. That's what a law enforcement official tells The Associated Press. The official says among the things investigators are looking at is whether a doctor was on a plane that made an emergency landing in Illinois less than a week before Prince died. The law enforcement official has been briefed on the investigation and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because he's not authorized to speak to the media. The official says investigators are also looking into what kind of drugs were on plane and at Prince's house in suburban Minneapolis. The official also confirmed some details that have previously been reported by other media outlets, including TMZ. The official says investigators are looking at whether Prince overdosed on the plane and whether an overdose later killed him.

SEARCH WARRANT OF PRINCE'S ESTATE SEALED
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A Minnesota judge has sealed the warrant for a search of Prince's Paisley Park estate that was conducted the day he died. Carver County Deputy Sheriff Jason Kamerud and prosecutors argued making the warrant public would hamper their investigation. Prince died last Thursday. Kamerud says he strongly disputes media reports that investigators have asked the U.S Drug Enforcement Administration for help in the case. He declined comment on reports of drugs found at Paisley Park. The Associated Press filed a public information request regarding a plane making an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois, six days before Prince's death. The heavily redacted report does not identify the person treated. Public safety officials refuse to confirm the aircraft belonged to Prince.

MILEY CYRUS IGNITES PLANETARY DEBATE WITH NEW TATTOO
UNDATED (AP) -- Is Miley Cyrus confused on the planets, or does she really know more about space than you think? Cyrus posted a photo on Instagram of a new tattoo she got on her arm of a planet surrounded by a ring that she referred to as a little Jupiter. Instagram users blasted her, pointing out it's Saturn that has rings. However, Jupiter does have rings. They're so faint that they were not discovered until the Voyager fly-bys in 1979. Cyrus has since taken down the Jupiter reference but left the photo up.
MARTINA McBRIDE CUTS HER HAIR FOR "RECKLESS" VIDEO
NASHVILLE (AP) -- Martina McBride really did hack away her hair in the video for her new song, "Reckless." She says it was no big deal and it was such a great metaphor for the idea of being reckless. Besides, she says a stylist fixed her hair afterward. McBride says the song is about doing impulsive things and finding someone who sees through that to love you anyway. She says she went through a phase of being stupid and met the man she ended up marrying.

THE JAYHAWKS RELEASE "PAGING MR. PROUST"
NEW YORK (AP) -- After The Jayhawks reunited in 2011 and it went badly, singer Gary Louris ended up in rehab for an addiction to painkillers. He blamed the music and tried to avoid it entirely. A therapist talked him out of it. Louris did some solo work but realized The Jayhawks were how he wanted to present his music. The Jayhawks -- without former member Mark Olson -- will release an album today called "Paging Mr. Proust." Louris says it's rare in rock for bands to put out their best work late in their careers. However, he says, "That doesn't mean it has to be that way."
