Musicians close to Prince reportedly in the mix for tribute

A tribute concert to Prince next month will reportedly feature some of the musicians closest to the late superstar, including Sheila E, The Revolution, and Morris Day and The Time.

A Minnesota State Arts Board newsletter says the Oct. 13 concert at the new U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis will "feature members of the iconic Prince Family." The newsletter also says Prince's backing band, the New Power Generation, will appear along with "prominent pop stars of today on guest vocals."

A longtime attorney for Prince who is helping manage the estate's entertainment assets told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the appearances haven't been confirmed. L. Londell McMillan says an announcement of the concert lineup will come out after Labor Day.

Minnesota Public Radio first reported the item Tuesday.

E-book from libertarian Gary Johnson coming Sept. 27

A new campaign book is coming out at the end of September, from Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson.

Broadside, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Johnson's "Common Sense for the Common Good: Libertarianism as the End of Two-Party Tyranny" will be released as an e-book on Sept. 27. A hardcover edition, with additional material, will be published in the spring. Johnson said in a statement that his book will examine "the root causes that have brought the two-party system to crisis."

Johnson, the former governor of New Mexico, has polled 10 percent or more in some surveys. He has been critical of both major party candidates, Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump.

Johnson's running mate is another former GOP governor, William Weld of Massachusetts.

Bankruptcy fraud sentencing delayed for 'Dance Moms' star

The federal court sentencing for "Dance Moms" star Abby Lee Miller has been postponed from Oct. 11 to Dec. 2.

Federal prosecutors in Pittsburgh and Miller's attorney asked to delay the sentence until after a federal appeals court decides a similar bankruptcy fraud case that could impact her sentencing.

Miller has pleaded guilty to trying to hide $775,000 worth of income from the Lifetime network reality show and spinoff projects during her Chapter 11 bankruptcy and violating another law by bringing more than $10,000 worth of Australian currency into the country in 2014.

Prosecutors have said sentencing guidelines call for a prison term of 24 to 30 months, but the defense contends Miller's creditors didn't lose money so the sentence should range from probation to six months in jail.

'Real Housewives' star Jacqueline Laurita is a grandmom

Laurita's daughter, Ashlee Holmes, gave birth Tuesday to her first child, a boy, named Cameron Hendrix Malleo. Laurita has posted pictures of the 8-pound, 4-ounce baby with his father and Holmes' fiance Pete Malleo on social media.

While it's not known what little Cameron will be calling Laurita, it might be safe to say it won't be "grandmother." Laurita told Bravo last month she thought she would be the "first New Jersey housewife to become a 'glamma.'"

Chris Stapleton, Maren Morris, Eric Church lead CMA nods

Chris Stapleton, Eric Church and budding newcomer Maren Morris are the leaders at the 2016 Country Music Association Awards.

The three performers received five nominations each Wednesday. The awards show, in its 50th year, will air live Nov. 2 on ABC in Nashville, Tennessee at the Bridgestone Arena.

Morris had a breakout year, getting nominations for female vocalist, new artist and album of the year for "Hero." Her hit, "My Church," is up for single and song of the year.

Church's nominations include album, male vocalist, music video, single and song of the year.

The duo Joey + Rory earned a nomination for vocal duo of the year. Joey Feek, who formed the group with her husband Rory, died earlier this year at age 40.

Bruce Springsteen breaks own record for longest US show

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band couldn't leave New Jersey without breaking another record.

Tuesday night's concert at MetLife Stadium ended four hours after it started, breaking the previous record for the group's longest U.S. show of 3 hours and 59 minutes set at MetLife last Thursday.

Springsteen told the audience his three recent shows at the Meadowlands in New Jersey were "most enjoyable."

The Boss' longest show was 4 hours and 6 minutes in Helsinki, Finland, in 2012.

The River Tour 2016, which kicked off in January, ends in Foxborough, Massachusetts, on Sept. 14.

7 things to know now: Trump heading to Mexico; Chris Brown arrest; commercial flights to Cuba

Here's a roundup of news trending across the nation and world today.

What to know now:

1. Headed south of the border: Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will be going to Mexico Wednesday, hours before he is scheduled to give a major speech on immigration. Trump will meet with Mexican president Enrique Pena Nieto. Pena Nieto said he invited both Trump and Clinton to visit the country and that, so far, Trump was the only one to take him up on the offer.  

2. More Benghazi emails: The FBI has found 30 emails related to the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in a batch of thousands the agency recovered during an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. According to the FBI, the emails were not among the 55,000 pages of emails Clinton agreed to turn over to the State Department. According to the State Department, the emails will  not be released until the end of September after they are reviewed.  

3. Chris Brown arrest: After a some 14-hour standoff with police at his Los Angeles home, singer Chris Brown was arrested on charges of assault with a deadly weapon. The incident started when a woman claimed Brown pointed a gun at her face in his home early Tuesday. The woman said some of Brown’s associates then chased her as she ran from the home. She told police she hid under a neighbor’s SUV.   

4. Drug-resistant gonorrhea: The World Health Organization told doctors Tuesday they fear a new strain of  drug-resistant gonorrhea due to the overuse of antibiotics. The WHO no longer recommends using quinolones to treat gonorrhea because they are seeing more drug-resistant strains of the disease. A  new class of antibiotics, cephalosporins, should be used to treat the 78 million people who will contract the disease each  year, the organization said.

5. Primary wins: In primary elections Tuesday, Republicans Marco Rubio  (Fla) and John McCain (Ariz.) both defeated challengers to their senate seats and will move on to the general election in November. Likewise, Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was ousted from her job as chairman of the Democratic party following a release of hacked emails, won her primary against a Bernie Sanders-backed challenger.

And one more

A plane, scheduled to take off from Fort Lauderdale Wednesday and head to Santa Clara, Cuba, is the first commercial flight between the United States and the island nation in more than 50 years. The Jet Blue flight is the first of what will become more than 400 flights a week connecting the U.S. with Cuba after the easing of a 55-year-old trade embargo with the country.

After lengthy stand-off with police, Chris Brown arrested

Chris Brown can't avoid trouble.

Following a bizarre, hours-long stand-off with police, the "No Air" and "Kiss Kiss" singer was arrested Tuesday afternoon on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after a woman called for help from a gathering at his home.

He was released from jail late Tuesday night after posting $250,000 bail, according to Los Angeles County jail records.

The arrest, which occurred outside the view of several news helicopters that swirled overhead and throngs of camera crews gathered at the bottom of Brown's hilltop estate, marked the conclusion of nearly 14-hour-long stand-off and investigation by police.

Los Angeles police spokesman Lt. Chris Ramirez said officers first responded to Brown's property in the Tarzana neighborhood of Los Angeles around 3 a.m. He did not identify the woman, elaborate on the assistance she needed or know if she was injured.

However, model Baylee Curran told the Los Angeles Times that Brown pointed a gun at her face. She said Brown and another man became angry with her when she admired the man's diamond necklace. Curran said she and her friend ran outside as one of Brown's associates gave chase and hid under a neighbor's SUV.

The model, who hasn't responded to requests for comment from The Associated Press, also told TMZ she's visited Brown's home in the past and never encountered any trouble.

Brown later posted rambling messages on social media Tuesday morning proclaiming his innocence and rebuffing reports that he barricaded himself in his "palace."

"Y'all gonna stop playing with me like I'm the villain out here, like I'm going crazy," he said in one Instagram video, waving a cigarette and looking at the camera. "When you get the warrant or whatever you need to do, you're going to walk right up in here and you're going to see nothing. You idiots."

Brown's attorney, Mark Geragos, arrived at the house before police served a search warrant around 1 p.m. Geragos stayed on the property until about 5 p.m. when Brown was transported for booking downtown.

"Thanks to everyone for their support and well wishes. Chris is out and well. The allegations against him are demonstrably false," Geragos posted on Twitter after the singer posted bail.

The stand-off and subsequent media attention provided a chaotic scene in the balmy and typically quiet neighborhood of Tarzana as police closed off nearby streets and rerouted traffic.

Throughout the afternoon, several of Brown's associates descended to the street below Brown's estate. They declined to identify themselves or answer questions from the media about what occurred. In some instances, the men were belligerent, flashing obscene hand gestures and grabbing recording equipment.

The incident is the latest in a series of missteps for Brown, who has been in repeated legal trouble since his felony conviction in the 2009 assault of his then-girlfriend, Rihanna, ahead of the Grammys. Last year, he completed his probation in that case last.

In 2013, Brown struck a man outside a Washington, D.C., hotel and was charged with misdemeanor assault. The singer was ordered into rehab but was dismissed from the facility for violating its rules.

Brown spent 2½ months in custody, with U.S. marshals shuttling him between Los Angeles and the nation's capital for court hearings.

In another incident while in treatment, Brown was accused of throwing a brick at his mother's car following a counseling session. It came after Brown completed court-ordered anger management classes.

Clinton wraps up Hamptons fundraising swing

Hillary Clinton is wrapping a fundraising blitz in the Hamptons, where she has racked up millions during a three-day swing.

The Democratic presidential nominee hopped from mansion to mansion in the tony New York oceanfront vacation destination, appearing at parties and dinners where the contributions ranged from $1,000 to $100,000 for guests and hosts. The top-dollar tour concluded Tuesday night with an event in Sag Harbor complete with performances from Jimmy Buffett, Jon Bon Jovi and Paul McCartney.

On an outdoor stage, Buffet entertained for more than an hour, playing hits like "Margaritaville" and "Cheesburgers in Paradise." Bon Jovi serenaded the crowd with "Who Says You Can't Go Home," and McCartney's numbers included "Can't Buy Me Love" and "Lady Madonna." The trio closed out the show with a performance of "Hey Jude." Attendees said Clinton even hit the dance floor with McCartney during one of Buffet's numbers.

McCartney joked with the crowd, according to fundraiser guests, saying that this was "the first time I've paid to hear myself sing."

Clinton kicked off her Tuesday fundraisers with an afternoon party in Sagaponack, where guests mingled with the candidate in a sunny backyard dotted with tables decked in red- and blue-checkered tablecloths.

The events all raised money for the Hillary Victory Fund, a joint fund supporting her campaign, the Democratic National Committee and state party organizations.

Heading into the final stretch of the campaign, Clinton is stressing that the race against Republican Donald Trump is far from over. At an event Monday she told guests that "this is the most unpredictable election season that I certainly can remember."

Clinton heads to Ohio Wednesday where she will speak at the American Legion's annual convention in Cincinnati.
