PRINCE was officially announced to be playing SXSW by Samsung today as he will be playing their party in Austin, TX this Saturday night.

Anyone who follows DrFunkenberry on Twitter knew that we were hinting at this for the past couple of days, but Samsung had to make the announcement official.

Samsung chief marketing officer Todd Pendelton talked to Mashable.com and had this to say about PRINCE:

"Having Prince in Austin at his first SXSW show will truly be a one night only experience that our Samsung Galaxy owners and friends will remember for years to come,"

"Prince is a legend and true creative and musical genius who has been innovating and pushing the boundaries of music for over 35 years."

"Prince’s live shows are always phenomenal and I’m sure we’ll be in for some fun surprises on Saturday night."

This is a big year for PRINCE where he has appeared on the Grammys, on the cover of the new version of Billboard magazine, and will be receiving the Icon Award at the Billboard Awards May 19th.  He will also be performing 3 nights at the Montreux Jazz Festival and a few other festivals as well.-DocFB

Video: Johnny Depp Jams With ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons

Johnny Depp was in Austin, Texas this weekend and ended up on stage with Billy Gibbon's ZZ Top and others.

Depp seems to be having a good time. He has been seen lately in L.A. chilling at the Chateau Marmont and then here he is ending up in Austin, Texas.

The actor has a new movie "The Rum Diaries" coming out this weekend.

We wonder if the movie will shred the box office like Johnny is shredding that guitar.-DocFB

Our favorite female movie actress (suck a bag of ..... Julia Roberts) Sandra Bullock was in Austin, Texas this weekend.

She had her son Louis with her, but there is no need to show you pictures of her son.

Speaking of Julia Roberts, even Tom Hanks wants to work with Sandra Bullock instead!

We are hearing that he is planning on starring with Sandra in "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close," which is a 9/11 related movie. 

Nothing has been signed but negotiations are in place.  We will keep you posted.  Right now, enjoy our future wifey in Austin.-Dr.FB
