COACHELLA just got a royal infusion of talent: Prince is coming to the desert. After weeks of rumors, promoters of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival announced Wednesday that they have indeed inked a deal that will add Prince to the lineup of the massive three-day show in Indio, which kicks off April 25. The Purple One, who will perform April 26, brings major star power to a lineup that some fans had criticized as a lower-wattage affair than in years past.

" It's one of a handful of tunes Prince is selling through a recently launched website, , named after his new all-lady backing band.

Like David Bowie and Justin Timberlake before him, the Purple One sprang a new tune -- in this case, a tight little fuzz-rock delight titled "Screwdriver" -- on unsuspecting fans this week, and Pop & Hiss is pleased to report that it's definitely worth your bandwidth. (Watch a lyric video for the tune below.) Prince appears to have recorded the tune with his new backing band, which may or may not be called 3rdEyeGirl.

Long known for his distrust of the Internet, Prince on Tuesday made his apparent debut on Twitter, posting a series of messages that suggest he's a bit more Web savvy than he's led us to believe. The tweets began showing up Tuesday evening on the feed associated with his band 3rd Eye Girl, with which he's been playing shows this year, including a memorable barn-burner in May at the Grove of Anaheim. First, the Purple One prepared us for his entrance: PRINCE'S 1ST TWEET...

Those who quickly turned off Fox after Sunday's Super Bowl missed some TV magic courtesy of Prince. The Purple One dusted off his acting chops for a guest turn on the Fox sitcom “New Girl,” and it was worth sitting through the last batch of commercials and drab analysis to catch the show in its special post-Super Bowl time slot. Appearing as himself,  Prince -- said to be a “huge” fan of the Zooey Deschanel series -- schooled Jess (Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson)

In an appearance sure to bring out the paparazzi, the groupies and the just plain curious, Michael Jackson's eldest child, Prince, will testify Wednesday in a wrongful death suit, just a day after the fourth anniversary of the singer's fatal overdose. Prince, 16, an occasional correspondent for "Entertainment Tonight," is expected to provide emotional testimony about what he saw on June 25, 2009, the day his father died in the family's rented Holmby Hills mansion.  Kai Chase, who was the family's chef, testified earlier that Jackson's personal physician, Conrad Murray, yelled at her to get help, and she sent Prince upstairs, thinking it was something minor, like a sprained ankle.
