Is New R. Kelly Song “Feeling Single” Directed Towards His Ex Andrea Kelly?

Back in the day, when R, Kelly performed anywhere, an award show or television appearance, it was sometimes very over the top. His performance of "Feeling Single" on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon showed Kelly can perform stripped down and the only thing he needed was his voice.

No extravagant outfit. His pants stayed on. Although the females at home...their pants may not have been on. The song is good. It is the first R. Kelly song I have liked in a while....yet....you have to wonder....with the title "Feeling Single" and the way he ends it, if it is a message to his ex Andrea Kelly, who is finding her own name and fame on "Hollywood Ex-Wives" with our friend Mayte.

Nonetheless, we are digging the song and if this is what it takes for R. Kelly to be making good music again, I am all for it.

What do you think of "Feeling Single" by R. Kelly? Is the song directed towards Andrea Kelly?-DocFB

Where’s Kanye? Ellen Doesn’t Let Taylor Swift Finish Her Promo


We guess Kanye West isn't the only one who can cut Taylor Swift off; Ellen DeGeneres can too!

In a new promo for Ellen's 10th season on the air, Taylor Swift is talking Ellen up but Ellen just thinks that maybe Taylor is better seen and not heard. It is quite funny.

At least Taylor didn't have that surprised look on her face again.

Ellen returns (Yes!!!) September 10th for her 10 season and we cannot wait!-DocFB

Video: Katy Perry & Justin Beiber Read Mean Tweets About Them


"Late Night With Jimmy Kimmell" did a montage of celebs reading mean tweets about them and videotaped it. Some of the celebrity's reading mean tweets were Katy Perry, James Van Der Beek, and Justin Timberlake.

Seriously, some people have some guts when it comes to tweeting celebrities. I was cool about people talking trash about me. When they pretended to be nice to me to ask me certain things though....it showed how two-faced they were and I just decided to block them.

The Internet gives people guts when they think that no one can find out who they are or that they will ever see that person face to face.

I kind of think Katy Perry and Justin Bieber (Don't call him Justin Timberlake) are laughing all the way to the bank over comments about them. Each have more than 20 million Twitter followers with about a million or two that can't stand them....yet still follow them. Interesting. I think people need new hobbies. Why invest so much time into disliking someone?-DocFB

Justin Timberlake: Ellen Is The Best “Finger-Kisser”….


Although we wish this was a new Justin Timberlake song we were talking about, we can't get mad that Justin is doing a teaser about Ellen returning for her 10th season!

Yes! Ellen is returning September 10th for her 10th season on the air. Justin couldn;t get it right about Ellen's smile and instead went with her "finger-kissing" technique.

Although Bethanny has kept us busy this summer, we cannot wait for Ellen to return to the airwaves and see what other musical talent she finds after Greyson Chance and Karmin in the past 2 years.

Check out Justin's awkwardness and Ellen being playful as we gear up for season 10 of Ellen.-DocFB

“Purple Rain” The Movie: 28 Years Later

Purple Rain Premiere Ticket/Envelope.  Image Provided By Drfunkenberry

This weekend marks the 28th Anniversary of "Purple Rain" the movie. Within a week of its release, it would be number 1 at the box office, joining "When Doves Cry" as the number 1 single, and the "Purple Rain" soundtrack as the number 1 album on Billboard. Prince was the first artist to ever to hold all 3 at the same time.

It was Prince's 6th CD, the official debut of his group The Revolution and most importantly, his major motion picture debut. The summer of 1984 belonged to Prince. My favorite song (along with hundreds of others) by Prince was dominating my stereo. When Doves Cry got worn out on my record player. I had to replace the cassette copy of the entire album every 2 months. I killed it.

This movie had several stories going on, and it succeed, unlike "Rock Of Ages" earlier this year.. From the performances with the Revolution and The Time and Apolllonia 6, no rock/music movie has ever matched up to Purple Rain since it's release. EVER!

I just wanted to honor Prince and those that made the movie and the music so special to me and millions of others.

So Prince, Albert Magnoli, William Blinn, Susan Rogers, Apollonia Kotero, Morris Day, Jerome Benton, Billy Sparks, Jill Jones, Charles "Big Chick" Huntsberry, Dez Dickerson, Prince, Brenda Bennett, Susan Moonsie, Alan Leeds, Israel Gordon, Wendy Melvoin, Lisa Coleman, Brown Mark, Jellybean Johnson, Mark Cardenas, Gerald E, Hubbard Jr., Paul Peterson, Jesse Johnson, 1st Avenue, The People Of Minneapolis and Prince, thank you. Thank you so much.

There are a few photos I took of some personal items that have ended up in my possession over the past few years. Some you may have seen before. I felt on this anniversary, I would pull them out for you. Much Love always.-Dr.FB

Sherman Hemsley From Hit TV Show “The Jeffersons” Found Dead

Sherman Hemsley File Photo


Sherman Hemsley, most famous for his portrayal of George Jefferson on "The Jeffersons" has passed away. He was found dead in house in El Paso, TX today.

His nurse discovered his body, thinking at first the legendary actor was asleep. When she noticed he was not, she then called paramedics.

Appearing as a popular character on "All In The Family" Sherman was able to parlay the role into a spin-off that became "The Jeffersons" which became a monster hit.  Both shows dealt with racism and social issues that they would not be able to get away with today,

Hemsley was 74 years old and was not married nor did he have any kids.

Thank you Sherman for years of laughs on "All In The Family", "The Jeffersons", and on "Amen" as well.  Also, for one of the best TV themes of all time.  You will be missed.  I will leave that whole he is in the deluxe apartment in the sky to all the other bloggers who will think they were creative to use it.-DocFB

Elisa Fiorillo has released "Share It With You" her first video in over 20 years! It is directed by Adrian Soto and styled by Richard Hallmarq.

The video was shot in San Francisco/Sacramento and Sydney! The song "Share It With You" is my original song-produced by Elisa and Jazz Trumpet player Tony Guerrero.

Elisa has been performing in her hometown of Las Vegas recently and creating and performing until she gets the call from Prince & The NPG to go play again-which she hopes will be real soon! Until then- she's enjoying the "Hot Summer" and my family & friends.

The song is available for download at:  http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/elisafiorillo5 and is also available on I Tunes.

We are digging the soulful sound......

Here is a recent performance of Elisa with the David Perrico Big Band called Pop Evolution here in Las Vegas.

Make sure to keep up to date with Elisa at her web site www.elisafiorillo.com

Mariah Carey & Ryan Seacrest File Photo


So much for husband Nick Cannon stating "American Idol cannot afford Mariah Carey" as she just signed on to be the next judge on the show for $18 million dollars.

The deal is for one year and was made today at the TV Critics Association Summer Press tour in Beverly Hills.

Depending on if Randy Jackson stays, they still have at least one judge's chair to fill.

The rumor that Adam Lambert will fill that seat is still in effect.

Mariah just released this statement via twitter and facebook: "It's gonna be so much fun working on American Idol. As a singer-songwriter, I'm excited to help find and nurture new talent. LYM!" --MC

So was signing Mariah Carey to Idol a good move for the show to keep it alive?-DocFB
