1st,we hope you have been going to Andy Allo's Facebook Fan Page like we told you to a couple of days ago for more goodies.  She has posted a live version of Prince performing "Stratus" from last night and some exclusive photos of her and Prince as well.

Ok, on that acoustic version of "Guitar" we posted the other day, there was some data attached to it.  The photo above was attached and the information below saying it is from a project called "The L/C" featuring Prince and Andy Allo.  Here is a screen cap;

This comes on the heels of Prince telling "The Guardian" and others that he will no longer be recording or releasing any new material.  Very interesting. 

The track sounds liked a jam session between Prince and Andy Allo, stripped down to its roots to even let a little bit of the recording process in as Prince and Allo interact within the track.  We have posted it again below for your listening pleasure.

We have not contacted Prince's reps for this as the artwork and meta still remain on the track posted a couple of days ago.  So, what do you guys think this is for and what do you think "The L/C" stands for?-Dr.FB

Well, well, well.  Rihanna has done something that Lady Gaga and her little monsters haven't been able to do yet; crack over 40 million likes on Facebook.   That makes her the most popular female on Facebook.  Eminem leads all with 43 million.  She is ahead of Gaga by a little over a 100,000.

It has been some week for Rihanna as she is replacing Megan Fox for Armani's lingerie line as a spokeswoman, and now this. 

Rihanna tweeted this after the announcement; 40 mil! 1 LOVE #RihannaNavy"

Speaking of Twitter, Rihanna has 6 million followers compared to Lady Gaga's 11 million, so Gaga is still the Queen of Tweets.-Dr.FB

Wow.  This is cool.  Andy Allo just posted this track to her Facebook Page and it is something else!  It is Prince and Andy doing an acoustic version of his song "Guitar" with Andy on lead and Prince backing her up.

Hmm.  We wonder where it was recorded with Andy on tour with Prince.  Backstage?  On stage?  In a studio?  Aww, who cares!  As long as we get to hear it.  Check out Prince and Andy performing an acoustic version of "Guitar" below!
