Scene & Heard:

This marks the 3rd video shot in the past week at Paisley Park with L.O.L. (Living Out Loud) being shot earlier this week. The photo of Hannah Ford is above is from that video shoot.
The video shoot was posted on Facebook and Craigslist looking for extras 18-21 years old only. So if you were older, you just got screwdrivered!
If we have/get more info, we will let you know.
Frank Ocean has decided not to press charges against Chris Brown for attacking him in a recording studio last week over a parking space. The charge could have violated Brown's probation for beating Rihanna and would have given him jail time.
Why is it we never heard of Marvin Gaye getting into it with James Brown over a parking space? Or NSYNC versus Backstreet Boys. Or Christina Aguilera versus Britney? What is it about now. I mean don't get me wrong, if someone tries to take my 2 piece with a biscuit from me, sparks may fly. Seriously though. Stay young but act grown.-DocFB
Diagnosis: A parking spot. Are y'll serious?
Add Alicia Keys, Maroon 5 and Frank Ocean to the performers list at this year's Grammy Awards. Presenters added are Kaley Cuoco, Neil Patrick Harris, Faith Hill, Carly Rae Jepsen,Tim McGraw, Katy Perry, and Keith Urban.
Looks like that fight with Chris Brown will not keep Frank Ocean from performing at the Grammys.
Ocean is up for six awards: Record Of The Year for "Thinkin Bout You"; Album Of The Year and Best Urban Contemporary Album for Channel Orange; Best New Artist; and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration (with Jay-Z, Kanye West and The-Dream); and Best Short Form Music Video (with Kanye West, Frank Ocean, The-Dream, Romain Gavras, and Mourad Belkeddar) for "No Church In The Wild."
Three-time GRAMMY-winning group Maroon 5 are up for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for "Payphone" and Best Pop Vocal Album for Overexposed.
Previously announced performers for the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards include current nominees Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert, The Black Keys, FUN., the Lumineers, Mumford & Sons, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, and Jack White, as well as Elton John and current nominee Ed Sheeran performing live together for the first time, and Justin Timberlake. Two-time GRAMMY winner LL COOL J returns as host-DocFB
Diagnosis: Shaping up to be a good night of musical performances.
After Chris Brown added Frank Ocean to his list of greatest hits over a parking spot of all things, Ocean is seriously thinking of pressing charges on Brown. Brown would be violating probation, which is still under for the Rihanna beating in 2009, and would be looking at jail time.
Brown received 5 years probation after being convicted of beating Rihanna. He got into a fight with Drake at a night club in New York last year, although charges were only pressed on each singer's crew.
got jumped by chris and a couple guys. lol. i only wish everest was there.

The L.A. County Sheriff spokesman Steve Whitmore made the announcement this afternoon that Ocean is looking to press charges on Brown.
There has been no word from Brown on the situation although he said yesterday, he was eager to talk to police, he still hasn't.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Rihanna, Drake, and now Ocean. Wouldn't do that to Jay Z tho.....
Frank Ocean was arrested on New Years Eve in Mono County, California for speeding and pot possession. He was driving a black BMW.
Ocean was arrested for going 90 mph in a 65 mph zone. When pulled over, the officer smelled pot coming from the vehicle. When Ocean was searched, a small amount of marijuana was found on the R&B singer.
Ocean was let go without being arrested as long as his passenger in his car drove him home. The weed along with Ocean's license was taken from him.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Green Matter...not Pink Matter this time....

Will U be watching SNL this year? Usually always funny during an election.-DocFB
Nelly Furtado's "The Spirit Indestructible" is due out September 18th and she sat down with our friends at Swagger New York to discuss her new album and why she prefers Justin Timberlake over Justin Bieber and why she thinks Odd Future is the next Nirvana.
Mind you, Odd Future consists of Tyler The Creator and Frank Ocean, whom I'm sure you heard of this summer. It also consists of Hodgy Beats, Earl Sweatshirt, Domo Genesis, and Mike G.
It is surprising to me since she is Canadian, that she chose Timberlake over Bieber.
She also takes time to talk about her new album and if she likes to wear "Big Hoops" as her song suggests.
She talks about the good she does like building schools in Africa. Very cool of her.
Check out the clips above and show some LOVE to our friends at SwaggerNewYork as well.-DocFB
The term "no homo" is used quite frequently in the rap/hip-hop community to disregard anything that could be deemed homosexual in nature.
Chris quickly took to Twitter after to say: "My Opinion on the whole Frank Ocean subject is ......... Love who u wanna love. It's ur decision. People stop searching for BS."
Shortly later, he seemed to attack again, stating: "The world is so bent on social acceptance that we've forgotten what makes us special... Our individuality! #Imdone #readabookbitch"
This is not the first time Brown has had beef with Ocean. Brown called out the group Ocean is involved with, Odd Future, going after Tyler The Creator and Ocean last year. It was a twitter war where the "N" word was dropped quite frequently.
Tyler stated that Chris Brown was just mad because Amber Rose stole his hairstyle and Ocean compared Brown to Sisqo of "Thong Song" fame. They actually followed Ocean in his car and tried to have it out with him in the streets last year,
Frank Ocean "came out" earlier this month stating he was bisexual in his blog. He has said nothing further about his former relationship or whom he is with now.-DocFB
Justin Bieber and Jaden Smith have just released a version of "Thinking Bout U" by Frank Ocean.
Frank was just in L.A. giving a performance that was making the ladies rather hot.
We are not sure Justin and Jaden's version packs the same bunch, but it is filling up our timeline's like crazy so we felt the need to share. Check it out above.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Wonder if they will cover LMFAO's "Sexy & I Know It" next....
