The Jonas Brothers have cancelled their 19 date tour as a rift in the band is taking place over the direction the band should take.

The problem is...do we still care about the Jonas Brothers? Cue the first comment to say "We never cared"....

The group's spokesperson released this statement:

"There is a deep rift within the band. There was a big a disagreement over their music direction."

We can only assume that Nick Jonas wants to take the band in an adult direction but Joe and Kevin want to keep it clean.-DocFB

Wait. Didn't this already happen?

After a musical and then announcing they would be touring in 2014, only to have Victoria "Posh" Spice back out, then thinking of having a reality show with the remaining members to replace Posh, the Spice Girls have decided to just call it quits.

It seems every Spice Girl seems to be busy with their own things anyway, especially Scary Spice.

Oh well. We will always have the late 90's, right?

It Must Have Been “Summer Love” As John Mayer & Katy Perry Break Up

Well, that was shorter than a Kim Kardashian marriage! John Mayer and Katy Perry have officially broken up as Katy was starting to fall for him.

The story has been confirmed by People.com and it appears the break up was mutual.

Katy was seen out with friend in West Hollywood Thursday night and John was chatting up a couple of ladies at the SoHo house.  Hmm.

We wonder if the break-up had to do with what we posted on John Mayer singing "California Girls" and saying it sucks.

Here it is again below for your listening pleasure.

Well, we have been saying that sooner or later, Katy Perry will be hooking up with Robert Pattinson.  Guess it will be happening sooner than we thought!-DocFB

Video: Seal Talks Exclusively To Tavis Smiley About Divorce


Seal talked candidly about the news of Heidi Klum divorcing him with Tavis Smiley today.  Seal said "the break-up will not be nasty as they are not those kind of people" to Tavis.

The way Tavis has conducted himself over the years and interviewing and knowing Seal helped him be able to ask the question and have Seal talk about the divorce.

Seal remained cool and collected, all while still wearing his wedding ring.

Seal said that they will remain civil.  Reports today said that the main reason for Heidi and him separating were because of Seal's temper that he cannot control and has lost it in front of their kids.

Seal says that "their love hasn't changed at all" and it "is difficult times" for him.

Him wearing the wedding ring and the way he talked, it seems that he is hoping that things can be worked out by remaining civil.

All marriages have hard times, and if the reports of Seal's anger is part of the marriage falling apart, here is hoping that he works on it and that the marriage can be saved or salvaged.-DocFB

It seems the band formerly known as The Time may be the band formerly known as The Original 7ven as Jesse Johnson has announced he is leaving the band.

Jesse Johnson took to his Facebook Fan Page to make the announcement;

Hello Babies,
 I don't really think I'll be performing with the Original 7 (or The Time if your nasty) any more! We simple don't see eye to eye on anything. Love the guys, but I feel in my heart it's "Time" to walk away while we're all still friends. May Peace be you.
 PeaceLove,
  Jesse Johnson Bey ♥

Wow.  So, I am wondering if this will derail all plans for a tour and to promote the album in 2012.  I mean, how can you tour as The Original 7ven when it would actually be 6?

The band announced their reunion earlier this year and with the reunion came the name change as they no longer could be called "The Time" due to Prince owning the name.  All this ground work and a funky album and......now this.

We wonder what the other boys in the band think of this news?-DocFB
