Uh-Oh! …And The New Best Selling Number 1 Song Of All Time Is…..

Justin Bieber & Elton John Photo: ETonline.com

Elton John's "Candle In The Wind" held the title of best selling single of all time, going eleven times platinum. Now, a song has gone 12 times platinum. Who?

"Baby" by Justin Bieber is now the best selling song of all time. With Billboard now taking into account Youtube views, "Baby" surpasses "Candle In The Wind"..although it hasn't sold more.

Bieber's "Baby" featuring rapper Ludacris has sold 3.9 million copies and has been viewed 859 MILLION times on YouTube.

Elton's "Candle In The Wind"/"Something About The Way You Look Tonight" has sold 33 million copies world-wide, 11 million in the U.S. There is no official YouTube channel for the "Candle In The Wind" performance, meaning it falls behind Bieber's YouTube hits, regardless of sales.

As much as I like the step forward Billboard has taken counting YouTube views, it changing the charts of songs that were there for years is disappointing.-DocFB

Gaga Gets back At Madonna…..By Flashing Her Butt? Winning?

So by now, you've heard that during Madonna's MDNA tour, she either takes out her breast and exposes it to the audience or flashes her 54 year old in shape booty. All the while, she takes a jab at Lady Gaga for "Born This Way" sounding too similar to her own hit "Express Yourself" from the 80's.

Well, Gaga had enough this week. She flashed her own butt at her show and said: " 'I don’t give a f*** what people say. We don’t give a f***. We know the truth." This is a direct response to "I Don't Give A" by Madonna.

Gaga's butt is quite athletic. Madonna's seems pretty tight. Wait. Aren't we supposed to be talking about their tours and the music here? Well, if they want that, lift up your pants!

Quick! Someone make sure that Elton John doesn't try to start pulling down his pants at his concerts soon.

Whose side (cheeks) are U on?-DocFB

The “Fairground” Hooker Madonna Checks Out Hard Candy Gym In Mosow


Madonna made her first public appearance since Elton John in an interview slammed the pop diva, calling her a "fairground" hooker along with a word that rhymes with runt.

Madonna walked the red carpet in Moscow for her Hard Candy Fitness Center there.

She is in Russia with her MDNA world tour.


Madonna took the high road and did not mention Elton John at all. She did greet fans talked about why she chose Moscow for her Hard Candy Fitness Center;

“Well I can say why I chose Moscow. Because I, first of all, I love the city, and I had a very good experience when I came here with my show. And second of all, I feel like people here really have a good work ethic, and are really into fitness and work long hours, and I thought this was a really good place to start a gym.”

We wonder though...do you think her outfit looks like a "Fairground" hooker like Elton John said?-DocFB

Elton John Calls Madonna A Stripper; Says Her Career Is Over & Defends Lady Gaga

I am really not understanding this Elton John/Madonna feud. At all. From Madonna beating Elton John for best song at The Golden Globes earlier this year, Elton has been really bitter towards Madonna.

In a new interview, he is relentless when it comes to the Queen of Pop.

“She’s such a nightmare. Sorry, her career is over. Her tour has been a disaster and it couldn’t happen to a bigger Cunt.”

Oh, the diva did not stop there.

“If Madonna had any common sense she would have made a record like Ray of Light and stayed away from the dance stuff and just been a great pop singer and make great pop records, which she does brilliantly.”

“But no, she had to go and prove… she looks like a f**king fairground stripper. She’s been so horrible to Gaga,”

I will admit, her new album "MDNA" is no "Ray Of Light" at all. Madonna used to be cool with Gaga as well until she felt that Gaga was borrowing too much from her and claiming Gaga's "Born This Way" was a straight rip-off of Madonna's "Express Yourself" from the 80's.

So, is Elton right or is he way off?-DocFB

Prince Is “Extra Loveable” But Where Will He Play Next?

Prince  Copyright NPG Records

Prince at Madison Square Garden, NYC. Dec. 29 | Copyright NPG Records 2010

Hmm.  Prince is "Extra Loveable"...and we know that you know that.  So is the doc as well.

We can only guess PRINCE is not worried about new lawsuit claims. (What?  Didn't think WE would mention it? tsk.  He is not worried bout, we ain't worried bout it.) 

Perhaps he is on a high with Misty Copeland being his "date" to Elton John's Oscar party.....that we did not even hear if Prince even had an Oscar party.....shoot, we would be on a high too.  A girl the doc dated in high school was a former ballerina n she was quite bendy.  Ahem.  'Scuse me.....

Wherever PRINCE plays next, make your way there!!!!!

We just got word that he got a 25 minute live version of the bootleg classic "EXTRA LOVEABLE" that he is about to unleash.  What do you know about that PURPLE FUNK????? 

(I know I would love to hear a sample of that 25 minutes, PRINCE.  Ahem.  Just putting it out there.....)

With PRINCE bringing out jams like "Extra Loveable" the party is going to go on for days ya'll!!!!!!!

BTW, do we still have permission to tweet during a show that has "Extra Loveable" in it?-Dr.FB
