Prince to perform at George Lucas' wedding?
Star Wars director George Lucas will be serenaded by Prince at his wedding celebration this weekend, according to reports.

The New York Post claims that although the celebrated filmmaker tied the knot to Mellody Hobson last weekend in California he will have a second celebration in Chicago today (June 29), and the Purple One will be on hand to sing for the newlyweds. Neither Lucas nor Prince himself, however, have confirmed that he will be performing at the event.

Prince has released a slew of new music online in recent months via his 3rdeyegirl website. In December 2012 he released the track 'Rock And Roll Love Affair' and followed it up with 'Screwdriver' and another new song, 'Breakfast Can Wait', in February.

More recently, meanwhile, he unveiled the track 'FIXURLIFEUP' in May and premiered his latest song 'Ain't Gonna Miss U When U're Gone' earlier this month, which is available via his official website.

It was also recently revealed that Prince will feature on Janelle Monáe's forthcoming new album 'The Electric Lady'. The singer has collaborated with Monáe on her new LP. Speaking about the collaboration, Monáe said: "We are great friends, and he is a mentor to us, to me. It's a beautiful thing to have a friend - someone who cares about your career, and wants to see you go far and to push boundaries and shake up the world - give whatever they possibly can to the cause."

In April of this year, meanwhile, it was rumoured that Prince was looking into the possibility of playing small venues next time he tours the UK after he apparently asked his promoters to look for smaller spaces for his gigs. The last time he performed in the UK, he played to over 500,000 fans over 21 shows at London's O2.
