For the first time here, the song title is revealed! The song title is "You And I Ain't Nothin No More" written by Lenny Kravitz.

Lenny had this to say exclusively to us regarding recording with Gladys Knight:

"Writing "You And I Ain't Nothin' No More" for "Lee Daniels' The Butler" was an added bonus to my involvement in the film. Moreover, having Gladys Knight sing the song was a musical experience that I will cherish forever. Gladys Knight's performance delivered a haunting soulfulness that brought forth the full emotion of each word." -Lenny Kravitz

Thank you LK and MB! It is appreciated!-DocFB

Diagnosis: We cannot wait to see the film and hear "You And I Ain't Nothin' No More" as well. Exciting times for Lenny!

Video Premiere: Shania Twain “Today Is Your Day (Why Not?)


Here is "Today Is Your Day (Why Not)" by Shania Twain, her latest video in a while.  Shania has been more in the news for a marriage that discombobulated over time, with her then husband cheating on her with her best friend.  Proving turn about is fair play, Shania fell for the husband of their best friend, but actually waiting for a divorce before hooking up.

A lot of people are looking to this song for inspiration but from my eyes, it seems this song was written during Shania's love and life troubles as she was working through it.

I like the song.  It is nothing like her late 90's catalog, but that is not where she is at.  It's nice to see her recording again and seeing Gladys Knight was an added bonus.

What do you think of the latest from Shania?-Dr.FB

Diagnosis:  Still The One


Michael Jackson Finally Laid To Rest

Michael Jackson is finally buried. After dying June 25th. Buried 70 days later. That's some bull right there, but now he is buried.

Let's see...a private viewing July 6th, then a memorial service of family and friends July 7th, then going to the public memorial July 7th at the Staple center and then the actual burial last night.

The burial last night was star studded with Elizabeth Taylor, Lisa Marie Presley,  Chris Tucker,  Macaulay Culkin and his girlfriend Mila Kulas. Performers included we are told Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, and Aretha Franklin.

Let me say this...I am glad he is buried. Finally. I don't understand the whole 5 limos and the big Italian restaurant in Pasadena after the burial service.  I am upset that it took so much time to get him buried. From infighting and other things. I understand time was needed for the autopsy but after that, it should have been taken care of, but it wasn't.  Was the family trying to milk Michael maybe thinking the press would not care about them anymore?

Give Jermaine time to try to put together tribute concerts that cost an arm and a leg? Give Latoya enough time to make a video? Give Joe more time to pimp his record label? Janet has been silent during all this but I would not be surprised in time she admits being upset by the way things were handled.

I am happy he is finally buried but upset at the not so classy way it was handled. The Jackson family really is something else.
