The Twinz, Maya and Nandy McClean, lost their mother, Maureen Gwendaline Moseley.

The Twinz released this statement regarding her passing;

"As you all know she was our favorite person in the world and we loved her with all our hearts. She was a true living example of unconditional love!!!
Larry Graham's wife Tina Graham said it best, "She's there".
To us "there" is a place we all strive to get to. Of being loving, caring, giving, and gracious. To live how all the greats teach us to live, a life of service to others."

From someone who would see Mo, their mom, at events always with a smile on her face and a dance in her step, this is hard and sad.  I can only imagine what it is like for the Maya and Nandy.  Maureen took ill last year during Prince's 21 Nights Forum run, and it seemed like she was on the road to recovery.  Their mom took ill again and were in Australia to be with her.

Maureen would house homeless children, about 200 in her lifetime.  The Twinz also shared this;

"She brought us up telling us to "follow your dreams" and that "anything is possible, just trust in the universe". She allowed us the freedom to be any expression that we wanted to be and loved us unconditionally. We used to call her "The best mom in the whole wide world", and she called us" the best little girls in the whole wide world". For a magical time the 3 of us lived in a one bedroom cabin in the forest and when we'd get into bed together at night we would all say, "This is the best part". Mom truly was the best part and truly, the best part of all of us."

I'm sending heartfelt condolences to The Twinz, Maya and Nandy McClean, the entire McClean and Moseley family and friends.  This world is truly a better place because she was in it.  Thank you for your smile, your accomplishments, your heart that welcomed people in where they had no place to go.  She will always be here...and there.-DocFB

The Wanted Release New Video For “Chasing The Sun”


The Wanted, a "boy band" have just released "Chasing The Sun" their new video.

The Wanted finds itself in direct competetion with other "boy band" One Direction. This has happened twice before; in the 90;s with NSYNC and The Backstreet Boys and in the late 80's with New Kids On The Block and The Boys. Aside from The Boys, all 3 other groups were able to strive and The Backstreet Boys and The New Kids have been touring as NKOTBSB for the past year.

The video is interesting and it seems to feature more "Starships" than the new Nicki Minaj video as well.

The Wanted so far may be chasing the sun but have been catching a lot of stars as of late.  It may have something to do with the management team being the same as Justin Bieber's......-DocFB

Earlier this week, PRINCE released a rehearsal jam exclusively to drfunkenberry.com of "Mutiny/Ice Cream Castles" a response of sorts to if former bands in his Purple Court could open up for him in Australia.

Paul Peterson aka St. Paul of Fdeluxe (Formerly The Family) received the track before anyone else last week....and responded in play to his former boss.  They felt Prince was having a little fun with the band, so they thought they would return the serve.

Fdeluxe is Paul Peterson, Susannah Melvoin, Eric Leeds, and Jellybean Johnson.

The response?  "Hot Summer At Menards."  Menards is a home improvement store in the Mid-West for those that may not know.

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Hmm.  "Hot Summer" is a song that Prince gave to the radio station The Current in Minneapolis in June of 2010.

Do they have any garden tools?  What do you think of Fdeluxe's response to "Mutiny" and will The Original 7ven/The Time respond as well?  We don't think so, but you never know.  Will you be going to any "Hot Summer" sales?  No?  Ok then.

Will Prince respond to this response with an even funkier rehearsal jam?  Stay tuned........-DocFB

Video: Katy Perry Takes American Idol To Boot Camp


What is hotter than Katy Perry in military fatigues? Not much, quite frankly.

Katy made her yearly American Idol performance last night. Although the song appears to be about her soon to be exhusband Russell Brand, she has been dating Flroence & The Machine band member Robert Ackroyd.

The breakdown dance part reminds us of Janet Jackson's "Rhythm Nation 1814" video expect this time, you needed night vision cameras to see it.

Katy still does not have the best singing voice but I still like that she gives her all to each performance and has heart.-DocFB

Nicki Minaj Rejoins Twitter & Drops New Video “Starships”


Nicki Minaj made sure to put in the "Starships" early in the video just to get straight to the skin. The star re-joined Twitter a couple of days before the video dropped.

More than likely, her record label pleaded with Nicki to get her Twitter account back. Finding ways to reach 10 million fans and then not reach them will make a record label blink 3 times fast.  The sar deleted her Twitter after leaks of her CD and most of her music was being downloaded for free.

The video shows Nicki in an outfit that will make sure the next time Kim Kardashian is shown on a beach, she will wear less fabric than Miss Minaj.

The song is catchy and drops a few "s" and "f" bombs just for the heck of it.  It will not be the jam of the summer, but you will be hearing a lot of it....and seeing a lot of it as well.  Unlike her last video, BET did not feel this was dirty enough to not have on when they actually play videos.-DocFB
