Kicking off a week of promotion for his new record and tour, Kid Rock performed "First Kiss" before the Daytona 500 today.
Fox and NASCAR intertwined clips of Daytona winners and racers getting a kiss before and after famous races. There is even one of a young Jeff Gordon getting a kiss for good luck.
Kid Rock knows his audience for sure....and that crowd actually still buys CD's too!-DocFB
Diagnosis: Still reminds me of "Summer Of '69" by Bryan Adams...and that is not a bad thing at all.
Our photo of the moment is of the ultra-talented and timeless beauty Salma Hayek.
The photo shoot was for Edit magazine and inside she talks about the keys to a happy marriage.
"You're going to laugh... Find the right guy! That is the key, and it’s so hard because there are so few of them.-Salma Hayek
Diagnosis: Yea, I'm pretty sure if you are Salma Hayek there would have been more than a few "right guys", right?

Orange County alternative five-piece band ARMORS have released their new single entitled “Old House,” which is available for purchase now on iTunes.
The band is fresh off the successful unveiling of their debut track “Parasite,” which premiered at LA’s legendary 106.7 KROQ Locals Only show. The track gained over 10,000 plays in less than a week, and has since reached #1 on the widely viewed radio segment.
The new single “Old House” was produced by Adam Castilla of The Colourist, with whom the band is very close. Diffuser.fmraves, “While Castilla definitely left his touch on the track, he allowed Armors to build out their melodious indie rock sound in an unforgettable span of three minutes.” In addition to releasing new music, Armors will play two California dates with rising indie rock outfit Night Riots in San Louis Obispo at SLO Brew on 2/20, and Bakersfield on 2/21 at B-Ryders. Armors will return home for a performance with Columbia Records’ Conway at The Satellite in Los Angeles on 3/9.-DocFB

Taylor Swift visited The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon and you know they had to do a skit. They reflected on when they were jumbotron dancers. It was a little better than her appearance on "The Californians" for the SNL 40th Anniversary Show.
Taylor looked kinda hot in the hockey skull cap I must say.-DocFB
Diagnosis: No performance this time from Swift on Fallon.
Coming off their widely embraced new album Kings of Suburbia, Tokio Hotel are continuing their infiltration of the electronic space by debuting two new remixes of their hit single "Love Who Loves You Back" by world-renowned Swedish duo CAZZETTE and new De-Code LTD signee PIONEAR, respectively.
CAZZETTE's remix is above. PIONEAR's is below.
Cazzette is fresh off their track "Blind Heart," which reached #1 on the Billboard Dance Chart during the week of 2/7, along with the 2014 release of "Sleepless," featuring vocals from UK artist The High, which was certified gold in Sweden . The duo is also well known for their 2012 debut album Eject, which saw rave reviews throughout the electronic music world. Pionear - the newly signed DJ hailing from the Midwest - started as the guitarist of a death metal band, and eventually became obsessed with dance music production and began self-releasing music in the EDM community. His unique production style soon caught the attention of Shiro Gutzie, president of De-Code LTD, and his remix of Tokio Hotel's "Love Who Loves You Back" is his first official release on the LA-based international record label.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Remixes appear to be back in, in a major way!
