Drew Barrymore attended the premiere of her directorial debut "Whip It" and it was a star-studded event including Steven Speilberg who directed Drew in E.T. way back in 1982 and co-star Ellen Page, the star of Juno.

The event was held at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre and so far the word on the street is mum about the movie but we don't think it will be a make or break for Drew but we do wish her success in her film career and directing.-Dr.FB

Selena Gomez had a party last night for her release of Kiss & Tell, her new CD.  Her CD is off to a fast start as her young fans camped out to buy the new CD.

We wonder if Selena is going to "kiss & tell" regarding her rumored relationship with Taylor Lautner of the Twilight movies and upcoming New Moon sequel. So far, nothing.

Her band is called the Scene so when she performs, it is Selena Gomez & The Scene. Hey, if Katrina & The Waves worked in the 80's, why not?-Dr.FB

Jennifer Hudson attended the conceert/play of the Wizard of Oz in New York last night held in Central Park.

Jennifer looks great only a couple of months after giving birth to a beautiful baby boy. She is looking forward to getting back into the studio and recording.  She hasn't been that far removed from the tragedy last year when most of her family was murdered by another family member, but Jennifer has been strong and persevered through it.

I look forward to new good music from the former American Idol contestant soon.-Dr.FB

Lady Gaga Talks Kanye

Lady Gaga, who is about to go on tour with Kanye West, talked about the incident at the MTV VMA's 2 weeks ago in a recent radio interview in Las Vegas and she defended Kanye.

Gaga said:

"I would say he’s a good guy and everybody makes mistakes, and he feels so f—ing bad. He really does, he really feels bad.”

“If you listen to the radio right now, with the exception of myself, really, and, like, probably Taylor Swift, Kanye is responsible for everything we’re listening to. Everyone likes to focus on gossip, but he’s changed music and he’s really prolific and an incredible person, and I think it’s unfair to judge somebody on one mistake they’ve made.”

“He’s really kind of shown me a lot, as a friend, planning this tour — it’s all about the fans … I felt like that  moment really portrayed him in a way that he really isn’t. It was just a random moment.”

I don't think Lady Gaga would lie so I do think she believes this but it is also damage control for the suits promoting the tour. They are worrying for nothing. This tour entitled "Fame Kills"  is going to sell out no problem and be a success.

What do you think? Is Lady Gaga right about forgiving Kanye and that he feels really bad or damage control?-Dr.FB

YouTube Strikes Deal With Warner Bros. Music

So after days of it being talked about and after pulling all Warner Bros. videos from youtube 9 months ago, Warner Music has struck a deal with youtube.

No word on how this will effect videos by Madonna and Metallica, Warner Bros. artists. It was stupid for labels and artists to go after youtube. It's great they are getting paid but it's promotion. We don't watch videos on whack-ass MTV anymore.  With youtube getting close to actually getting on television, it makes sense for labels to latch on to something that will handle advertising for them.

Here is more on the deal. Do you still watch MTV for music videos or do you turn to blog sites such as the esteemed Dr.Funkenberry & YouTube?-Dr.FB

This is really really good news. T.I. & Ludacris are donating 10 grand apiece to help Atlanta flood victims according to TMZ.

Even behind bars, T.I. is trying to help his community and this comes on the heels of Luda giving away cars last month. They are donating the money via The Ludacris Foundation.

People usually report on the crap rappers do like say Kanye n his outburst, but I prefer stories like this. Good job T.I. n Luda!-Dr.FB

So I heard Kathy Ireland got bumped off of "Dancing With The Stars", where they use the words stars VERY loosely.

So was her dancing worse than her acting on Melrose Place back in the day?

Did you watch? Did she deserve to be sent home?-Dr.FB
