Chris Rock cut promos for this week's Saturday Night Live that Chris is hosting and they had Bobby Moynihan pretend to be PRINCE for one of the promo's.

PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL are the musical guests this week and they will play an unprecedented uninterrupted 8 minute jam on the show instead of 2 musical performances.

In a funny one, each time they said Prince, women would scream. Do you really wanna see Chris Rock sing "Head" tho? Maybe play that bass line perhaps instead.

Check out all the promos above.-DocFB

PRINCE's first appearance on Saturday Night Live since 2006 will feature an 8 minute jam instead of doing 2 performances on the show.

Here is the press release for the announcement below:

The first television performance from Prince since the release of his two chart-topping albums, ART OFFICIAL AGE and PLECTRUMELECTRUM, on September 30 is not only going to be live, it will make history.

The music icon's return to the SNL stage on November 1 - his first since February 4, 2006 - will be a rousing eight-minute long jam session with no commercial interruption. The party will feature Prince along with his all-female band 3RDEYEGIRL (guitarist Donna Grantis, bassist Ida Nielsen, and drummer Hannah Ford Welton).
In the 40-year history of SNL, most performances have been broken up into two segments, often at midnight and one just before the 90-minute classic sketch comedy show ends. But Prince, known for his spontaneous and electrifying three-hour concerts in venues both massive and intimate, will perform his set in the middle of the show with no closing encore. It's anyone guess what the songs will be, but undeniable that it will be an incendiary and history making performance.

Host Chris Rock's singular request was for Prince to be the musical guest for his return to SNL as host after 18 years. It is the second time he will host the show. The two made the announcement via a press release on October 14 with a photo of Rock dressed as Prince from the film Grown Ups 2.

Also don't miss the PRINCE Spreecast this week where we will discuss PRINCE's greatest TV performances. It will air Wednesday night.

ART OFFICIAL AGE, Prince's solo album, bowed in at #1 on Billboard's R&B Chart while PLECTRUMELECTRUM, featuring Prince's new band 3RDEYEGIRL, debuted at #1 on the Rock Chart, making Prince the first artist in over a decade to debut two albums in the Top 10 at the same time.-DocFB

Diagnosis: A historic Performance!

Chris Rock Gives Leno A Jab About Conan; What Did He Say To Kobe? Video

Chris Rock was on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and he brought the funny. Talking about how he wishes Obama had Katrina and Bush had the oil spill going on. "Bush would get every drop like Jenna Jameson." Wow.

Rock also talked about what he was trying to say to Kobe Bryant last week at the NBA Finals and Jay saying he could make Kobe laugh.

Chris Rock still has it. Even comparing his co-stars of "Grown Ups" to the stars of "Sex & The City". Check it out above.-Dr.FB


No Laughing Matter As Chris Rock Gets Sued Over Hair

Chris Rock is being sued over the documentary he is releasing Friday entitled "Good Hair" as a documentary filmmaker is saying Chris stole her idea.

Regina Kimbell is saying her 2005 doc entitled "My Nappy Roots"  is what "Good Hair" is based on.  Her film won best doc prize at the 2007 Hollywood Black Film Festival and had stars talking about black hairstyles from the jheri curl, the fro, and dreds.

Kimbell is saying she showed her movie to Rock in 2007 and that is how he got the idea for his film.  She is seeking $5 million from Rock. At this time, Rock has not released a statement.

I don't know, it seems kind of odd the lawsuit is filed the week of the movie's release, no?-Dr.FB

Gwen Stefani & Gavin Rossdale also took in the Laker game last night.

Other stars in attendance were Dr.funkenberry fav's Denzel Washington, Alyssa Milano, Spike Lee (non too happy about the Knicks loss) Chris Rock (who gave props to Trevor Ariza (Laker player) after the game as well as the before mentioned Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgons.  Not spotted by us but we hear Leo Di Caprio & David Beckham were there as well.

This celeb crowd is just a warm up for the big game December 25th at Staple Center between the Lakers & The Celtics, a rematch of last years NBA Finals.  It pains me to say this but I think my Lakers are overhyped and Kevin Garnett and Boston will come in and win.  I hope they prove me wrong but right now, Boston is the better team.-Dr.FB
