Why he gotta get his mama involved? Seems like Brown is starving for publicity. So so sad, it's over, move on.

Breaking News! Disney Buys Marvel Comics!

 Marvel Comics was just sold to Disney for $ 4 billion dollars! The deal is pending an anti-trust review and Marvel stockholders. So now those who wished for a Spider-Man & Mickey Mouse team-up will get their wish.

Disney will get 5,000 marvel characters. Disney said Monday that Marvel shareholders will receive $30 per share in cash plus 0.745 Disney shares for every Marvel share they own.

I am shocked.  Did Marvel Comics really need to sell themselves for $ 4 billion dollars. I don't understand certain deals sometimes. This is one of them. I just don't want Marvel comics to turn Disney style is all. I don't want lame tie in stories where I have to buy a Donald Duck comic book to finish the Fantastic Four story.

I know I am going overboard, was just caught off guard with this deal. What do you all think?-Dr.FB

Jenny Hager, formerly Jenna Bush has been hired as a reporter for the "Today" Show. Jenna is George W. Bush's daughter.

She will be featured once a month doing educational stories. Damn. I thought it was gonna be at the best places to party. Oh well.

She said it was not ger dream job but she is being open-minded. I am open-minded too. Her hosting "Wild On" with E!  would have totally been better!

Katy Perry Takes Over Hollywood

Katy Perry performed a series of hits, "Hot & Cold", "Waking Up In Vegas", "Your So Gay", covering Fountains of Wayne and closed it with "I Kissed A Girl", going into the crowd to plant some kisses.

I got my Perry Cherry popped with it being 105 degrees outside during the day and Katy making it even hotter inside. The almost 2 hour set was great. I wanted to make sure I say Katy on this tour because I enjoy this CD and wanted to make sure I caught her when she was focusing on it.

Her enthusiasm matched the crowds from the get-go from her throwing blow-up strawberries into the crowd. She picked a girl from the crowd for "Hot n Cold" and ended up (after breaking it rock star style) giving the girl a pink Hello Katy guitar.

Listen, I know there are some haters out there who say Katy can't sing. I believe she can. It may not be the most amazing but her charm, her energy, and her stage presence more than make up for it. I can only hope that she returns to the stage soon (her last show of the tour was last night in Santa Barbara) so you can experience Katy and get your Perry Cherry popped too!

Video: MTV Show May Have Been DJ AM’s Breaking Point


Here is video of DJ Am aka Adam Goldstein talking about working on the show he was doing for MTV when he died. He talks about picking up a crack pipe to show how easy it is and his palms started getting sweaty and he knew it was not a smart thing for him to be doing. 

Within a month, DJ AM was found dead in his hotel room, with a crack pipe near his body, and a bag of crack by his body.-Dr.FB

OK, so I got my Perry Cherry popped tonight as I went to my first Katy Perry show. Amazing! Mic trouble during the first song but the rest was hot like soup!

More info on that and way more photos later today. Kim Kardashian and Miley Cyrus along with a few others were there. When I look at the pics, will let you know.

After Katy, I went to Kiss n Grind where Questlove, DJ Vicktor, and DJ Rashida were spinning. It was at a place called Church and I understand why they call it that; after parking, you are praying your car is still there when you get back. Chuuuuuurch! Yep, I am preaching. Love to support you guys but wish it was at Avalon or Bardot.

Listen, I need to get a little bit of sleep and hoping no other celeb dies while I take a nap. I sometimes feel I am not running a celeb web site but a celeb death watch lately. Seriously.

See you guys soon and much love to Adam & Michael. Peace.-Dr.FB
