Singer ties the love knot

Melissa Etheridge had plenty to smile and sing about on Saturday — she and Linda Wallem were married at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California, People reports.

The Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter and Wallem, a co-creator of the television series Nurse Jackie, began dating in 2010. They announced their engagement after the Supreme Court's decision on gay rights.

In the course of the outdoor ceremony, Etheridge serenaded Wallem with a song she wrote for her.

Besides the singer's four children, the magazine said several celebrities attended the ceremony, including Chelsea Handler, Rosie O'Donnell, Whitney Cummings, Peter Facinelli and recording artist Sia.


Prince occasionally likes to remind people that — despite being a semi-recluse who doesn't allow photography or recording at his shows and steadfastly rejects the Internet — he's still a force to be reckoned with, People reports.

Friday, he did this by performing not one, but three sets over the course of five hours at the club Botanique in Brussels, a 400-person venue much smaller than the Purple One's usual scale.
