Prince’s Family May Be Prepping To Sue -
Prince's family has access to investigative records concerning his death.
The documents include the late musician's emergency medical landing in Moline, Illinois just days before his death. A Carver County judge made the ruling Wednesday. There have been objections by law enforcement about the release of the records concerning the Minnesota superstar, who experienced an opioid overdose on his plane a week before he died. Prince's sister and five half-siblings are considering a wrongful-death lawsuit.
They have been ordered to keep all the information confidential.

Katy Perry had a great time in Japan.
Not only did the “Swish Swish” singer get to enjoy the country with her boo Orlando Bloom, and perform, but she also appeared on the TV show “Sukkiri” and got to chow down on some delish food.
And judging by the video, she loves their fried bites food! Perry was presented with different flavors of chicken and other nuggets and shoved one of each in her mouth until she couldn’t hold anymore.
She ended up spitting it out in one of the cartons the food came it. She had the hosts looking on in amazement!
