Taylor Swift pays attention to her social media accounts. So much so, she sent them surprise gifts and filmed it.
As Taylor called it, she was #Taylurking her fans. Kind of a cool concept and perhaps one of the reasons despite the industry hurting in sales, Taylor Swifts numbers seem to be unaffected.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Do I start asking now what I want from Taylor for next Christmas? Hmm.

Katy Perry has been giving back to schools and teachers. First with a contest that had her perform for them on her 29th birthday. This time, she is giving a million dollars to teacher's education. The pop singer went on Good Morning America to talk about the donation and how important education is.
Diagnosis: As much as we dig Katy, can she translate the tweet below?
Just saw a amazing face off between a hawk and a squirrel. Today is already the best. (both survived)

PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL are set to take over the legendary Fillmore venue for 2 shows on March 19th.
Tickets for show 1 are for sale HERE.
Tickets for show 2 are on sale HERE.
After performing at the Fox Theater in Oakland over the weekend, there was rumors of more shows to happen there but we hear they didn't happen because of the artist wanting tickets sold at the door to prevent scalping instead of being sold online. Since no agreement was reached, no further shows happened.
We though the Filmore shows would be tickets at the door but with the concerts now being for charity and with the most expensive ticket being $2500, the tickets at the door concept was just not going to happen.
We hinted at the shows yesterday on Twitter and the Facebook Fan Page. When tickets went on sale tonight, Marc E. posted the links for the tickets which people had a hard time finding since it was under PRIVATE EVENT.
The questions I was asked in the past 24 hours on the fan page were something else. You answer he is playing THE Fillmore and you have people asking over and over, yea, I know it is IN Fillmore but where. It seems THE Fillmore was not enough help.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Have fun for those lucky enough to get in!!!!
Elevate Oakland raised just over $110,000 through fundraising efforts and the inaugural benefit concert, which was presented by Oakland’s own Sheila E. and held at The Fox Theatre in Oakland this past last weekend.
Funds raised through this event will go to support art and music education programs in Oakland’s public schools where no art or music curriculum is offered and will continue to support the current programs in need at schools like Castlemont High School.
“We are truly grateful for the success of Elevate Oakland’s first benefit concert. The generosity of the artists who donated their performances and time is absolutely amazing. The support of the community, the teachers, all of our sponsors and the dedication of all our volunteers is what made this event such a success,” in a joint-statement issued by Elevate Oakland’s co-founders Sheila E., Jason Hofmann, Lynn Mabry and Yoshi Akiba, “We definitely plan to make this an annual event and are already planning the next one.”

Nile Rodgers was performing a concert for the AFTEE (All For The East End) charity raising money for local non-profits. he called up Adam Lambert to cover "Let's Dance" by David Bowie!
Adam is killing the Bowie classic!! Killing! Adam is def killing it!
A new song of Adam's entitled "Lay Me Down" featuring Lavicii was also played so look for a post on that soon!!!!!-DocFB
Diagnosis: It really is pathetic that a label does not know what to do with Lambert. It makes me wish that America did get it right and chose him as the real American Idol over Kris
Jenner Allen. I am not one for putting down others. Just upset. Hope you guys feel me.
