Video Premiere: “Stone Rollin'” By Raphael Saadiq

 

Here is the new video "Stone Rollin'" By Raphael Saadiq, the follow up to his "Radio" video in January.

Raphael recently backed up Rolling Stones lead singer Mick Jagger at the Grammys. 

I am digging the old sound groove of the song. It reminds me of recent Anthony Hamilton songs and that is a very good thing. 

It def gets a funk pass from me.  What do you all think?  Funk it or Dunk it?-Dr.FB

Diagnosis: Raphael is Stone Rollin' not Stone Playin'

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi showed up at the Wrestlemania news conference in New York today and was greeted with boos. 

She wore a top that read brunette mafia..something that maybe Cyndi Lauper would have worn to a Wrestlemania...if it was 1985!

Snooki will be involved in a match with her partners Trish Stratus and John Morrison versus Michelle McCool and Layla (named LayCool) and Dirk Diggler Dolf Ziggler.

The Rock was on hand as he returns to host Wrestlemania.  There was electricity in the air when the Rock was on scene and Snooki's boos were gone.  The energy doubled when Cena and Snooki joined the Rock on stage, with the Rock looking none too happy.  But he could be a better actor than you all think.

Are you ordering Wrestlemania?-Dr.FB

Video Premiere: “This Is What Rock & Roll Sounds Like” Porcelain Black & Lil Wayne

 

Ok, LOVE how the video starts with Porcelian Black and Lil Wayne as kids and then shows them growed up for the "This Is What Rock & Roll Sounds Like" video.

Doesn't Porcelain look like Poria De Rossi, Ellen DeGeneres's wife?  Who knew adding a bandana ala Guns n Roses to Lil Wayne made him rock n roll?

What do you think of the video?-Dr.FB

The new poster for Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides has been released.  This is the 4th Pirates movie and will still star Johnny Depp sans Orlando Bloom and Kera Knightly.  Penelope Cruz has been added to the cast.

It gives you a first look at the mermaids who will be featured in the movie.  Captain Jack meets Ariel?

Jerry Bruckheimer felt it was needed to not have any women in the movie with breast implants.  He told Entertainment Weekly recently " “I don’t think they had breast augmentation in the 1700s. So it’s natural for casting people to say, ‘We want real people.’”

Interesting to say the least.  What do you think of the movie poster?-Dr.FB

Video Premiere: Kanye West “All Of The Lights” Featuring Rihanna (Revised Edition)

 

Kanye West has revised his video of "All The Lights" featuring Rihanna.  The light visuals at the end were bright and were not made for people with epilepsy as it could cause seizures.  I knew that the first time I saw the video n chose not to post the video for that reason.

On this version, they toned down the lights for that reason.  Doesn't take away from the power of the song.  What do you think of the video?-Dr.FB

Diagnosis:  A Bright Spot

Enrique Iglesias Drops Out Of Britney Tour; Ego Couldn’t Handle It

Enrique Iglesias was announced yesterday as the opening act for Britney Spears upcoming tour.....and today...he backed out.  The reason?  His ego couldn't handle being her opening act.

Enrique wanted equal billing with Britney as to be co-headliners.  My understanding of a co-headliner is sometimes Britney would be the first act.  That would not be happening.  The agreement was being worked on for weeks with the understanding of the co-headliner.

When it was announced on Good Morning America yesterday, it was made obvious to everyone that Enrique was the supporting act.  So, he dropped out.  Big mistake.

Britney's last tour in 2009 generated $131 million dollars in revenue and we also heard that Enriwue was going to be paid quite a pretty penny....not pesos. 

Plus, Enrique could have been upstaging her every night as he actually sings.  Britney does something..not sure how live it is though.

The Britney tour will kick off in Sacramento, California June 17th.  No replacement act has been named for Enrique yet.-Dr.FB

Diagnosis:  Not Britney's Hero

Get Ready For A KEM-ical Reaction

If R&B soul artist Kem has not been on your radar, we really don't know what to say to you.  He has been on tour with El Debarge and then Musiq Soulchild for the past few months winning over fans with his performance.  It doesn't hurt that he is easy on the eyes ladies.

Although born in Nashville, TN, Kem calls Detroit, Michigan his home.  A self taught musician, it seemed that Kem was on his way to a bright future, until bad choices derailed him.  He has a previous history with drug abuse but is clean now and thanks his music for being there for him in the darkest of times to pull him out.  Playing weddings, and wherever he could, Kem paid his dues, released a solo record on his own, and the label he grew up with, Motown signed him.  He is going on almost a decade of being clean and living the good life.

Kem has performed for President Barack Obama and his musical influences are Stevie Wonder, Prince, Parliment Funkadelic, and Steely Dan.  He has been nominated for 2 Grammys this year, countless Soul Train Awards and NAACP image Awards. 

 His 3rd album, Intimacy is out now and is about to funk up Los Angeles, San Francisco, and San Diego before the weekend.

Make sure to keep your eye on Kem as he is one to watch.  We will do our best by covering him and letting you know what this Funkenberry artist is up to.-Dr.FB
