Entertainment WACH: Celebrity words of wisdom for college grads, new Prince music and more


It’s shaping up to be a marvelous Monday and we hope that this “Entertainment WACH” with our Natalie Parsons and HOT 103.9‘s Beasy Baybie helps kick that off!

It was a weekend full of college graduations and Oprah Winfrey was among the many celebrities who gave commencement speeches across the country.

The media mogul offers some life advice to the University of Southern California’s School For Journalism and Communication.

Winfrey urges the graduating seniors to “be the truth” and “exemplify honesty.”

She encourages students to use what they’ve learned to challenge the left, right and even the center.

Chadwick Boseman and Chance the Rapper also gave graduation speeches on Saturday.

Moving onto music news: There’s a new album on the way for Prince and it’s expected to be released in 2019.

The Prince Estate announced on Friday that they reached an agreement with Tidal to end their legal battle.

The streaming service will exclusively debut an album of previously unreleased music by the legendary singer.

The musician’s Estate and Tidal owner Jay-Z will specially select the songs on the album and stream it exclusively on Tidal for 14-days with available download 7-days after it premieres.
