Diagnosis: There is a lot to be thankful for in 2014. From the new music, the NEW GIRL takeover, the London HIT AND RUN takeover, the Arsenio takeover, magazine covers (Mojo and the New Essence mag you gotta pick up), Liv Warfield's The Unexpected, the announcement of NPG MUSIC PUBLISHING, the annoucement of new music to be released on Warner Bros. plus the remasters of his Warner Bros. catalog including the 30th anniversary of "Purple Rain" this year and owning ALL of the WB masters, plus even more projects are in the works! 2014 is shaping up to be a brand new chapter in already epic career! We are not even at the half way point yet!
Jared Leto is refocusing his attention to his music career after winning an Oscar for his performance in "Dallas Buyer's Club" last Sunday.

Diagnosis: It doesn't suck to be Jared for sure.
Here we are in 2014 and just like in 2013 and 2012 and 2011 and (You see a pattern here?) there are rumors starting up of PRINCE headlining the Glastonbury Festival in the United Kingdom.
Every year they do this and every year Prince doesn't perform.
is advertising Prince every year to perform even legal? Is it fair that Prince is used to sell tickets or promote Glastonbury? The festival is sold out so why do they need to do that?
What Do U think?????-DocFB

Yes! Liv Warfield will be making her National & late night TV Debut on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on January 28th, 2014!
Liv will be bringing her own funky band and will not be performing with The Roots.
Warfield is very thankful that Jimmy Fallon is allowing the platform for her to get national exposure.
Liv has worked extremely hard this past year and is very excited about 2014. Next year is the year of "The Unexpected".-DocFB
Essence has announced that PRINCE will be performing at their 20th Anniversary festival 4th of July Weekend in New Orleans in 2014!
In an official statement Essence had this to say about PRINCE headlining the festival:
To honor this momentous occasion, ESSENCE will partner with the legendary singer/songwriter for a special community initiative led by the Rebuild the Dream Innovation Fund, which encourages young people to harness the power of media and technology, and channel their creativity into computer coding.
"Welcoming an artist as iconic as Prince back to the ESSENCE Festival for a 20th anniversary performance is incredibly exciting," said ESSENCE Communications President, Michelle Ebanks. "The ESSENCE Festival is where we come together to connect to both our culture and our community, so we are pleased to support Prince and the Rebuild the Dream Innovation in advocating for our youth."
"Rebuild The Dream" is run by Van Jones and Prince has worked with "Rebuild The Dream" most recently for his "Welcome 2 Chicago" tour of 2012.

The Cover Girl model and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres has been tapped to host the Academy Awards in 2014!
It is a very popular choice we must say. It is also a very safe choice after Seth Macfarlane this year.
— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) August 2, 2013
This is Ellen's second time hosting the show as she hosted back in 2007.
“I am so excited to be hosting the Oscars for the second time. You know what they say — the third time’s the charm.”-DocFB
Diagnosis: A very solid, popular, safe choice. It will make the long show a little bit more enjoyable.
"Who you gonna call?" In 2014, for the 3rd time, it will be the "Ghostbusters" as "Ghostbusters 3" is set to start filming in the summer of 2013.
It will be missing Bill Murray however, who will not be returning.
Dan Akroyd opened up about the film and where his character will be in the movie;
"My character, Ray, is now blind in one eye and can't drive the Cadillac He's got a bad knee and can't carry the packs... Egon is too large to get into the harness. We need young blood and that's the promise. We're gonna hand it to a new generation."
Ivan Reitman will return to direct the movie. They are hoping to release the movie in 2014, as it will be the 30th anniversary of the film.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Who they gonna call to do the Ghostbusters Theme Song?
