The warrant, which was filed on May 5 and made public this week, states that Schulenberg treated Prince on April 7 and April 20 and prescribed him medication, reported KSTP-TV and the Los Angeles Times. However, the warrant does not identify what medications were prescribed or whether Prince actually consumed them.
Investigators interviewed Schulenberg and searched Minneapolis' North Memorial Medical Center, where he worked as a primary care physician. A spokesperson for the hospital said Schulenberg has since left the clinic.
Although the actual cause of Prince's death has not been revealed, police have confirmed that they are investigating the possibility that the music legend died from an overdose of prescription medication. Allegedly, the painkiller Percocet was found in his body during an autopsy. Read more here.

Brown responded by posting a series of comebacks on Instagram. The first was a collage of three empty stadium seating sections meant to be a jab at McCall's popularity.
Brown played with the wording in his caption, changing the idea of McCall's album being "fire" to being "fired," and calling his sales "tripple (sic) translucent." Brown also posted two viral videos meant to disparage McCall's looks.
On Twitter, meanwhile, McCall kept up his power, insinuating that he'd been with Brown's ex Rihanna in one tweet, calling Brown a "wannabe Miguel" and calling him out as an abuser. Read more here.
Apparently, music fans didn't know Lopez was spelling Ja Rule's name in the beginning of the song. The track opens with Ja's gruff voice saying, "What's my motherf-ing name?!" J. Lo responds. "R-U-L-E." However, listeners heard everything but that. Some people thought Lopez said "Are you ready?" or "Are you Ellie?"
Fans might have missed that tidbit because when "I'm Real" was on the charts the controversy was that Lopez used the n-word in the second verse. Read more here.

The two performed a cover of Cyndi Lauper's "True Colors" before the premiere of their animated film at the festival. Timberlake played an acoustic guitar backed by a second guitar, all of which produced a more somber rendition of the song.
Add to that Timberlake and Kendrick's inspiring harmonies and the song takes on an even more meaningful quality, if that's even possible. Read more and watch their duet here.
Titled "Step Into the Light" and "It Can Never Be the Same," the songs are drastically different in their emotional and melodic qualities. The first song has a mellow feel reminiscent of The Cure's most iconic sound that builds towards a big drum finish as lead singer Robert Smith sings, "We need to step out of the shadows/ And step into the light."
The second song, "It Can Never Be the Same," has a much darker, almost melancholy, feel thanks to edgier guitar riffs and a thicker bass sound. The instrumental opening lasts nearly two minutes before Smith's vocals take over. The song bemoans that tension-filled dichotomy that things never change and at the same time they are never the same.
Performing at the UNO Lakefront Arena, The Cure played the first of their two-night stop in town. They will perform again tonight (May 11) before heading to Austin, TX on May 13. Listen to fan recordings from the show here.

Cudi followed up with a teaser clip of new music, set to a scene from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. "And now, a snippet and the Millennium Falcon," he captioned the post.
"Don't tell Kanjiklub." If you're not a massive Star Wars fan like Cudi, Kanjiklub is a reference to a criminal organization that operated in the Outer Rim Territories, per the Star Wars Wookieepedia. Check out both posts here.
The pair are 10 years in and she's still giddy about her man. The superstar couple married in June of 2006. The Daily Mail reported that Keith said he thought the video was "awesome" and discussed how Nicole was part of the songwriting process.
"She sent me that and I thought it was awesome and the fact she was in her Celeste character. I loved it," he said. "She's there for all of it. Of course I like what she responds to. She has a different, unique taste in music. So I really like getting her response to things. I can spot the more effusive reaction."
Urban revealed that they are trying to coordinate their schedules so that the family can join him on tour this summer. He said the couple's two children, seven-year-old Sunday Rose and five-year-old Faith, were "thriving." Watch the video here.
This commenced the latest series of nearly unpublishable Azealia Banks tweets at Zayn, his followers and her detractors. Fourteen-year-old Disney Star Skai Jackson suggested that banks should "simmer down," which prompted a vicious response about menses. Let's just say it all got very ugly, again.
The U.K. Born & Bred festival was less than impressed with her abusive words, and announced they will drop Banks from the upcoming lineup of performers. Zayn fans had fervently tweeted at the promoters urging the decision, making it a small victory for #TeamZayn. Read more here.

Ain't Yours: There's a rapper that I do some recording with in my studio who makes "special cookies" (if you get what I mean). One day after a studio session, he left me a small bag of these tasty treats. About a week later when the sun was smiling and the warm weather was sure to come to a close for the year, I decided to walk to the bank make a deposit. I hit the local pub for a pint on my way back, and found one of these special cookies in my shorts pocket. I washed it down with the last of my beer while taking in the tail end of a rugby game with a few of the pub locals. By the time I had walked back to the studio, my creativity seemed to be amazingly "turned up" … 3 hours later, Ain't Yours was produced, written and recorded. What a day.
The Payoff: In January of this year, I hit up Fresh Kils studio (downtown Toronto) to rehearse for some live videos we were scheduled to shoot. When I arrived, Kils told me about a youtube clip containing a beat made by 9th wonder. Earlier that day he and DJ Uncle Fester (The Extremities) had been arguing over if the sample could have been chopped up and used in a better way. The discussion got so heated that they ended up finding the same sample and creating their own beats from it. This was all to settle the argument, and to see how their "chops" would stand up to 9th's creation. When I heard it, I liked Kils version of the sample chop so much, I immediately took his beat home and wrote verses to a song that turned out to be "The Payoff" on my new record.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
