We didn’t see this coming! “A” struck again on ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars, this time choosing a main character as her latest victim. Mona Vanderwaal, played by JanelParrish, was killed off in the season finale, moments before revealing that Alison, “A,” was indeed still alive. Rosewood weeps, but Parrish confirmed via Twitter that she’ll still be on the show... in flashbacks. [The Hollywood Reporter]

When the artist formerly known as Prince—then known as Prince again—gives you advice, you take it. In an interview with The New York Times, André 3000 reveals he wasn’t ready for OutKast’s (widely-criticized) weekend one reunion at Coachella back in April, especially after finding out that Paul McCartney and Prince were in the crowd. A few days, later, he got some wise words from Prince. Lesson learned: stick with the hits! [Vulture]

The Budweiser Made in America festival is just days away, and Glam will be there to cover Kanye West’s headlining set in Philadelphia on Saturday... before he hops on a plane to Los Angeles to perform for the West-coast crowd on Sunday. The bi-coastal festival is the first of its kind, and according to Budweiser brand manager Mike Thompson, if it’s a success, it could mean a longer-running festival in years to come. [Huffington Post]
