Watch Now! Lady Gaga’s Grammy Performance Of “Born This Way”

OK, it's better live. I like the piano breakdown. But Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" on the Grammys still lacked.

Still, it is a poor man's version of "Express Yourself" By Madonna.

Check out the performance and let me know what you think.-Dr.FB

When Prince is not busy kicking Kim Kardashian off his stage, I am sure he watches television just like the rest of us.  We wonder if he is a fan of the show "Glee" however.

Gwyneth Paltrow will be returning to the show set at Mckinnley High as Holly Holiday, where she covered Cee Lo's"Forget You" to rave reviews.  She will be teaming with Matthew Morrison to perform "Kiss" by Prince as a duet.

We hear it has been filmed and is set to air March 8th.  We have been hearing for a while about "Glee" wanting to do an all Prince episode and were surprised clearance was given for "Kiss"...but it turns out....it wasn't.

Prince's people contacted us about the song being used on Glee and we were given this statement;

"The planned performance of Prince's "Kiss" on Glee is NOT approved by anyone in Prince's official camp."

So we now have to wonder, will this "Kiss" ever bee seen or will this be "Never Been Kissed" part 2 for Glee fans?-Dr.FB

Exclusive! Details On New Eminem/Dr.Dre Video

Eminem / Universal Music Group

Eminem / Universal Music Group

Eminem & Dr. Dre shot a new video recently for Dre's new song "I Need A Doctor" and I still don't know if he is talking about me or him.

Regardless, we have deets on the video.  It was an expensive one to say the least. 

They are going to wreck a $100,000 plus Ferrari as they filmed it getting flipped over and over and over.

Dre has been hip with Ferrari's for a while being spotted all over the San Fernando Valley in different models for years.

The set was light as Dre and Em were joking between takes. 

The video is set to drop shortly.  Stay tuned to Drfunkenberry.com for the premiere!-Dr.DRE   Dr.FB

Scene & Heard: Grammy Edition

During Big Boi of Outkast's  performance last night where he opened for Cee-Lo, Janelle Monae came out to dance during "Bombs Over Baghdad".....

Rihanna's rehearsals at the Grammys have been straight fire......

Eminem and Dr. Dre are hoping to be the most talked about performance of the night at the Grammys.  Going to be hard to do with John Mayer,  Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and others vying for that as well.......

More to come......Dr.FB

New Music! Musiq Soulchild Featuring Swizz Beatz “Anything”

MusiqSoulchild is turning up the vibe by getting the services of Swizz Beatz and I like it but for those who follow Musiq, may not.

Musiq usually has the slow jams as his main jams but this is anything but slow. Looking forward to the visuals. I like the direction he is going and adding Swizz to the mix can only help.

So what do you think of "Anything" by Musiq Soulchild & Swizz Beatz? Funk it or Dunk it?-Dr.FB

When you think of Prince, you don't really think of Barbra Streisand.  But at last night's MusiCares event where she was getting an award, it was none other than the "Purple One" giving her the award.  Butta!

Prince introduced her with one line...and seriously....after the performers and others talking about Striesand, one line is all you needed because you knew Barbra was gonna talk girl!

Before Prince landed in L.A. this weekend, and before kicking Kim Kardashian off his stage for not dancing, Prince was very charitable.  He gave $1 million dollars to the Harlem Children Zone, $250,000 to The Uptown Dance Academy and another $250,000 to The American Ballet Theatre. 

Prince is in town for the grammys and then some.

We here rumblings of Prince doing some shows in Los Angeles and wonder if like last time it will be for celebs eyes only or will the public lay witness to the funk man?  All we can say is that is like earthquakes in L.A.; it is going to happen, we just don't know when.-Dr.FB

Lady Gaga Drops “Born This Way” & Sets I-Tunes Records

So Lady Gaga dropped "Born This Way" on the world and.....it sounded like Madonna did in 1986.

First time I heard about this song back in August of 2010, I did not imagine the lyrics would be like this....aside from the "Don't be a drag..just be a Queen."

Regardless of what I think, it set records for selling the most downloads through I-Tunes in 1 day.

Maybe I need to hear this at a club....but as of right now, highly disapointed.

Gets a dunk it from me. What do you think of "Born This Way" by lady Gaga? Funk it or Dunk it?-Dr.FB

Kim Kardashian joined PRINCE on stage at his Madison Square Garden Show.

She was not up there for long.  It seems Prince asked Kim to dance and she wouldn't.

Will Kim get another chance? We will see......-Dr.FB
