James Avery File Photo

James Avery, who played 90's TV dad "Uncle Phil" on "The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air" has passed away. He was 68.

Alfonso Ribeiro, who played his son Carlton on the show, made the announcement of Avery's passing on his Facebook page this morning.

Avery had undergone surgery recently for an undisclosed illness and he passed away in an L.A. hospital last night.

His wife was by his bedside, but went to get something to eat, and when she returned, Avery had died.

For a lot of people, what Bill Cosby was to family comedies in the 80's, Uncle Phil was just as much important to 90's kids when it came to a father figure on television. He will be sadly missed.-DocFB

Diagnosis: There went holding out hope for a Fresh Prince reunion. I hope you are no longer in pain James. Much Love...Always...

New Bruce Springsteen Album Released…Without Springsteen Knowing!

Bruce Springsteen High Hopes

Bruce Springsteen's new album came out Saturday night...without Springsteen even knowing the album was released. "High Hopes" was to be released on January 14th, 2014.

Amazon started selling mp3's of the album Saturday night. Amazon has removed the tracks but the songs are all over file sharing web sites.

According to USA Today, the tracks include two deceased members of the E Street Band, saxophonist Clarence Clemons and keyboardist Danny Federici, as well as Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave guitarist Tom Morello, who toured with Springsteen this year. The album contains a pair of covers that have already been released individually — remakes of The Havalinas' High Hopes and Suicide's Dream Baby Dream — as well as a new version of Springsteen's The Ghost of Tom Joad featuring vocals from Morello.-DocFB

Diagnosis: There is no word yet if the album will now come out before it's official release date of January 14th, since the tracks are now circulating.

I am starting to think we should replace the word over-time with BEYONCE. Hey J, can you Beyonce for us? We need you to work a little longer.

Beyonce did that with her last album, recording over 80 songs for the record that caught the music industry off guard.

"When I started picking the songs that I gravitated towards – because I recorded about 80 songs – it was the songs that were more effortless for me that stuck around,"-Beyonce

In part three of the her behind the scenes documentary of the new album, she reveals the recording of the 80 songs. She also takes you behind the scenes of the video of "Drunk In Love" which stars her husband Jay Z.

It also shows behind the scenes clips of "XO," "No Angel" and "'Yonce," with "XO" being directed by Terry Richardson.-DocFB

Diagnosis: I gotta work Beyonce in 2014 for sure! We all do now...

Miley Cyrus touches herself while videotaping the experience in "Adore You" her latest video.

Mileyi s wearing a tan see through bran and panty set that is blurred at the start of the video but the self-proclaimed nipple lover makes sure that at one point in the video, they can be seen in all their glory.

Like "Wrecking ball" the song is great, not needing the extra stuff that gets people upset but she does it anyway.

She takes it from the bed to the bath later in the video all while taking the trip down to "Funkytown" several times.-DocFB

Diagnosis: The less we get shocked by what she does, the quicker she will stop. Great song...the video not as sexy as she may have wanted but her fans will eat it up big time.....
