PRINCE's "Breakfast Can Wait" video directed by Daniele Curiel has been named one of the top videos of 2013!
We remember how fans were upset when they found out Prince was not in the video at first.
Consequence of Sound has the video at Number 18 of it's top 25 videos of the year countdown.
COS had this to say as why the video was chosen:
Prince actually can be funny if he wants to be. The Minnesota legend is often stylish, sometimes sensual, usually over the top, but rarely humorous.
This is also the same man who recruited teenager Danielle Curiel to direct and choreograph the “Breakfast Can Wait” video, which features a Prince stand-in that’s funny merely by existence. There are also the extended dance sequences that work as a sexual metaphor. This is a video for a man who made a song that led to all those parental advisory stickers. Times are changing, and for Prince it means making PG-13 worthy euphemisms that are left field, but still delightful. Pretty much everything can wait when Prince is actually having some fun.
"Breakfast Can Wait" also made Rolling Stone's list of top 100 songs of 2013.
Congrats to PRINCE & Danielle Curiel!-DocFB
Diagnosis: Grammy Nominations are on Friday. Will we see a few nominations for PRINCE?

“Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe."

The Semi Precious Weapons took over the Sayers Club in Hollywood last night for a FREE show that featured a lot of new material and in attendance was Adam Lambert.
The photo above is a file photo and not from last night.
Adam has long been a fan of Justin Tranter and the Weapons. So much so that it appears that Justin and Adam have been working on material for Adam's upcoming album.

Adam left shortly before 2 A.M. to a Sayers club that was packed the entire night. We were tipped about Adam being there a few hours earlier but didn't say anything til this morning. So far, it looks like no paps were aware either.-DocFB
Diagnosis: As for if those Justin Tranter tracks will come to light on Adam's next album, we will have to wait and see. After all, we are still waiting for those Adam/Nikka Costa tracks....
Remember those Coachella Outkast reunion rumors a few weeks ago? Well, it seems there might be some merit to that and other appearances as 2014 marks the 20th anniversary of the group.
Over the weekend, Big Boi and Andre 3000 were seen hanging out in Atlanta and Big Boi took to Instagram to post a photo of them hanging together. Boi made sure he was rocking some Outkast gear.
The Instagram hashtag?? #unfuckwittable.
The duo have not acknowledged the rumors...but they haven't denied the rumors as well. Coachella and other music festivals are whispering that Outkast will be performing.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Outkast has not performed together since 2004 and went on hiatus in 2007.
