The couple are enjoying their anniversary and have been posting photos while celebrating. Check out the photos posted by our friends at Globalgrind.com.

Congrats to Alicia and Swizz and let the only other type of fender bending be in the bedroom.-DocFB

Gwen Stefani “Rocks Steady” With Prince! Updated

So is this a marketing ploy by The Forum?  The forum posted on it's Facebook Fan Page yesterday that Gwen Stefani of No Doubt will be performing with Prince Friday or Saturday night.  Well, Friday passed and..no Gwen.  So that would mean....tonight, right?

Tonight will be the 7th night of Prince's record-breaking 21 Nights In Los Angeles run at the Forum.

What we can tell you is that Gwen rehearsed with Prince and the NPG at the Forum almost 2 weeks ago for several hours, so it is supposed to go down and was planned.

An unreliable blogger who shall go nameless reported that Prince and Gwen were performing that night when actually it was just a rehearsal.

We have a feeling it will NOT be the Prince and No Doubt songs in existence but actually one of Gwen's all time favorite songs by the Purple One..and perhaps a few more guest spots.

So far, Prince has had Ledisi, Mint Condition, Larry Graham, Chaka Khan, Sheila E., and Alicia Keys take part as his special guests either as an opening act or a surprise performer.

I am not going to lie, I would LOVE to see Prince and Gwen perform.  Will it happen? 

Follow us on Twitter tonight as we will be LIVE tweeting from show n will let you know if Gwen plays: Twitter.com/Drfunkenberry -Dr.FB

Diagnosis:  Gwen Or Not, Prince Is Gonna Rock The Forum

Update!!  Gwen did indeed perform with Prince, doing "So Far, So Pleased" with Prince for the first time,

She also came out during "Cool" and Gwen along with the entire No Doubt band and husband Gavin Rossdale came out to dance during "Jungle Love".....

Prince has just announced that he will be continuing his 21 nights in L.A. by doing 3 Forum Dates this weekend, April 28th, April 29th, and April 30th.  Thursday, Friday, Saturday respectively. 

Tickets will be going on sale Tomorrow, April 26th, at 12 Noon pacific time.  That is just a little over 48 hours before the first show.

Tickets will still be $25.00  and Mint Condition will be opening for him on Friday, like they did last week.  No word yet on Thursday or Saturday's opening acts or surprise guests.  Chaka Khan and Larry Graham were Saturday's guests (Chaka was also opening act.)  and Alicia Keys was a special surprise guest. 

Since Prince's Forum run started taking place, it has been a who's who of Hollywood going to see him such as Matt Damon, Lea Michele, Justin Timberlake, Tavis Smiley, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardiem, and more. 

Prince is the ultimate performer and even with tickets going on sale at such short notice, we are sure the Forum will be filled, just like your prescription of funk.-Dr.FB

Video: Alicia Keys Joins Prince For 21 Nights In L.A. Watch Now!

 

OK, if you haven't been trying to get yourself to the Forum in L.A., which is already going to a be historic run of 21 Nights In L.A., where Prince has been performing his hits and many more through 3 shows already, he made you pay for it last night.

Prince started performing "How Come U Don't Call Me Anymore" at his piano while someone was being risen center stage.  The voice sounded before the lights went on her, but Miss Alicia Keys was singing the Prince song she covered while he played for her.

During the 2nd verse, which is what is posted above, Prince and Alicia turned the Prince classic into a duet.  How long will this video stay up though?  You may want to watch a few times just in case.  We love and respect Prince and we felt we needed to share this with you.  Hopefully, by not posting a full version (yet) it will be cool to keep up for now.

Prince said he had a big surprise in store for tonight.  All of No Doubt was there last night without Gwen Stefani.  Hmm.

Also at the show was Cuba Gooding Jr., Sheila E., John Stamos, Rosario Dawson, Glee's Lea Michele and at Thursday's show, Justin Timberlake, Magic Johnson and more.

L.A. and Hollywood's best are coming out to see the one and only, the Purple Icon, Prince.  We hear it's only going to get better.-Dr.FB

"You change your mind, like a girl changes clothes."-Katy Perry

Bear with me everyone.  I am with you on this, OK?

So our funkenbabies report that Alicia Keys, Janelle Monae, Ezperanza Spaulding and Patti Labelle killed it at rehearsal for the Prince tribute, performing a mix of songs from his back catalog that were, quite simply, amazing.  

Missing from the tribute; Chaka Khan and Prince.

We hear that Prince did not make it to rehearsal and depending on who you talk to, he was either supposed to be there or he wasn't . 

I love it. I can only laugh.  This is Prince.  So unpredictable.  I love it.

So because of this, Prince MAY or MAY NOT be performing tomorrow night at the BET Awards.  We hope he does join them on stage and whatever happens, it will be a great night for the Purple One.

So we ask you this...will he or won't he?

Is Casey Anthony Guilty?
