John Mayer Talks About His New CD, His Health, 50 Shades Of Grey, And His New Hat With Fallon


John Mayer sat in with The Roots band on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and also did an interview.

Mayer talked at length about his throat issues that are keeping him from singing. Although, he did sing a chapter of the "50 Shades Of Grey" book from his Kindle.


Fallon also brings up where when Mayer first came out as "Little Johnny Mayer" and talking about working with Eddie Vedder.

Mayer also says he will continue to wear his hat no matter what anyone says.  Guess since he can't sing, he is answering a lot of questions about the hat.

What do U think of the hat?-DocFB

George Michael Health Update: “He Is Improving”

George Michael has been battling pneumonia in a hospital in Austria and from rumors circulating on Monday that the singer died to that he is battling something else have made the medical staff release a statement about George's health.

The news was also released on George Michael's official website stating:

Further to our previous statement Mr. Michael is being treated here for pneumonia and nothing else.

The latest development in Mr. Michael's case - which has evolved from a severe pneumococcal infection - necessitated intensive care due to its severity and extension. We are happy to announce that Mr. Michael is improving steadily with an impressive regression of pneumonic symptoms and follows a steady rate of improvement as hoped.

There are no other health issues with regards to the patient other than the underlying pneumonic disorder, and no further measures had to be taken.

Mr. Michael is receiving precisely the same treatment as any ordinary patient in Austria would receive at the hospital for this disease.

As we said previously, complete rest and peace and quiet are mandatory.

We wish to make it clear that we are putting this statement out and there will be no further comment.

I'm glad to hear that George is improving.  Since his stay, George has postponed the rest of his concert dates for this year.  He still has not used his twitter account since Mid-November as well.

It is has been reported that his family and loved ones have been present with the 80's pop star during his battle.

We will keep you updated as more information becomes available either through George or the doctors.-DocFB

The person that knows David Bowie the best, his wife, is stating that Bowie is fine and healthy.

Iman, David Bowie's wife, tweeted that David Bowie is fine and healthy.

The photo above is from April 2011, at a charity event for Leukemia.

I wish we could see Bowie more recently than almost 6 months ago, but it is not like he owes me, or anyone anything.

David has always been somewhat of a private celebrity, so would we be told if he wasn't healthy?  My main thing, because I want to believe he is ok and healthy, I am believing what Iman stated.

If I have any more info on his health, I will share. For the time being however, Iman is stating he is healthy and are very happy to hear that.-DocFB

Diagnosis:  Wanted to be proved wrong.  Trust me.

Is David Bowie Close To Death????

God, I really hope the information I am getting is wrong. Let me just state that right up front when it comes to the health of David Bowie.

I have been sitting on this information for days.  I have heard stuff about David Bowie for a couple of years but then there would be a photo of him walking the streets of New York.  David Bowie has not been seen in a while and I know some of you will say that it doesn't mean anything.

Howard Stern mentioned on his radio show last week where David Bowie was and is worried about him.  Earlier this year, a collection of songs that were never released leaked.  Rolling Stone magazine tried to contact Bowie but neither David or his reps would comment.

Let it be known, I hope to be proven wrong on this.  I am hearing that David Bowie is not well.  Not well at all.  One of the two people I talked to hinted to me that David may have cancer, but would not confirm or deny if he did, and would not tell me what type.

Another person claimed to have contact with David in the past 3 months and said he is not looking good.

I'm coming from a place of respect.  A place of love of his music.  It is not my intention to "out" his illness.  If he is sick, I wish we knew.  I wish we knew so we could celebrate David and his contribution to music and to his fans that are dedicated and love Bowie now, and even back in the Ziggy Stardust Days.  Celebrate him now while he is alive and here.

We are not asking for a picture of him if he is not looking or feeling good.  I know that he would want his privacy respected at this time, and we want to do that.  At the same time, we would like to know if he is well.

For those I upset with this post, I apologize and understand where I am coming from.  To Mr. Bowie and his staff and family, I hope you understand where I am coming from as well.  You can contact us above at the send us news part of the site.-DocFB

Diagnosis:  Seriously, I hope I am wrong.....

Elizabeth Taylor Attends Tribute To Richard Burton

Elizabeth Taylor was in London late last week for a tribute for her late husband Richard Burton where a bust was revealed in his honor.

Dame Elizabeth was dressed up a beautiful red dress but did not look as healthy as she did a few months ago.  As we reported exclusively 2 weeks ago, Taylor was admitted to a hospital in Beverly Hills but not for health issues.  She was there for psychiatric reasons and went there voluntary. 

It's hard to see the Hollywood legend like this.  She was very sad and somber at the event as she still feels that Richard Burton was the love of her life.  So much so, she actually married him twice.   Her career was in a major swing when she was with Burton as many in Hollywood can agree. 

For the record, Taylor never denied our story via her Twitter account and neither have her reps.-Dr.FB
