EMINEM Talks Biggie, Beasties and 2PAC In New Rolling Stone

Eminem RollingStone.com

EMINEM is about to appear on ESPN alongside Brent Musburger. Why does he all of a sudden look spaced out?

I knew we were about to show the 'Berzerk' video, so I was doing what I call the Berzerk face," he says. "The whole song to me feels like vintage Beastie Boys. And you know the 'Pass the Mic' video where Ad-Rock is making that face, kind of not looking the camera? I was doing my own version."

Eminem discusses this in the new issue of Rolling Stone with Eminem on the cover. This is Em's 8th cover of Rolling Stone.

He talks about that this is the happiest he has ever been and that rap saved him although because of that he considers himself to be an idiot savant.

Ariana Grande Comes To The Defense Of Miley Cyrus

Ariana Grande is not afraid to run from the subject of Miley Cyrus and is also is one of her defenders.

Grande tells Complex Magazine....

"Miley looks like she is having the time of her life, and I think anybody who's giving her a hard time is wishing deep down they were having as much as she is right now. People are being so cruel. I think that's bullying, and she should do whatever the hell she wants. Everybody needs to have more fun. If it's not your taste, don't look at it. I get so hyped up about the Miley thing because I think she's cool."

OK. Ariana tho, can you tell her to put her tongue back in her mouth already?-DocFB

Diagnosis: Does Miley have an opening act for her tour yet?

Katy Perry Talks About God; “Accountability Works”

Katy Perry Photo: W Magazine

Two fine. Maybe even three fine. For W Magazine's November issue though, Katy Perry appears on W magazine with 2 different covers. Oh, and she talks about John Mayer again. You guys know they are together right? Just wanted to make sure you didn't miss it.

Oh, Katy also discussed religion. Wonder how many bloggers/music writers are brave enough to put "G O D" in the title of a post?

In talking about John, she did keep it brief:

"I actually am dating my crush. I had a crush on him for a long time, and it just so happens we fit together great."

As for her single "Roar", to Katy, it is a movement:

“This song is about sticking up for yourself. People talk about bullying, but you can be your own bully in some ways. You can be the person who is standing in the way of your success, and that was the case for me. I was having a great professional streak, but personally, I was really immature, so I had to balance those things out. If you are not happy with something, you should change it.

Katy also expressed one of the hardest things to talk about in an interview without seeming crazy, her religious views:

"I try and keep my connection with G-O-D or with a power that's bigger than me. It's important - otherwise, you don't have any kind of accountability. If you think, Hey, at the end of it all I am just going to be dust, or I have no soul or whatever, why not just be a menace to society? For me, accountability works."

Katy doesn't run from the question and her background of her parents being preachers and where she came from will make sure she is asked that question 99 times out of a 100 when she is interviewed.-DocFB

Diagnosis: The religion question. It is a trap a majority of the time. Aside from saying "God is great" or "God is good" or exact quotes from the bible, it is a trap. There is nothing wrong with believing or not believing. The more interviewers ask that question, the more I think they are lacking something and looking for an answer themselves.

The Kanye West Jimmy Kimmel Interview Showed Kanye’s Genius

Kanye West File Photo

Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kanye kept it real. He showed his intelligence, his sense of humor, his arrogance his drive, and his anger. It was the best interview of his career so far. By far.

Sometimes when you do not get along with the interviewer, it brings out a realness in you. From the start of the show, Kimmel was apologetic to Kanye. Kanye kept it real with Kimmel. He never apologized for his comments but did admit he did not see the skit in it's entirety that started the feud.

When Kanye compared being a "Celebrity" to being in a zoo, he is 100 percent correct. He thanked the paps for showing how fly his outfit is. After a long flight or showing up at 4 A.M. to his house where his girlfriend and baby are trying to get into a car, that press is not needed.

What I got from Kanye is someone who is articulate and smart and wants to be all he can be. If that pisses off old money, then so be it. No one should be limited to one thing. I 100 percent agree.

Kanye is angry and being able to vent like this may help him. There is anger issues there for being misunderstood and being arrogant. The more he expressed himself, the more you could see where he is coming from.

As for Kim Kardashian getting a star on the walk of fame....she is more than a reality star now. The problem is if they give Kim one, then Honey Boo Boo will want one and then Jon Gosseling would have had one. She is more than a reality star and the family rubs people the wrong way. Kim will get a star on the walk of fame someday.

Kanye is sticking up for his woman and the people that are now his family. He is sticking up for himself and the vision he has created and made Kanye West a rapper, a brand, and so much more. Kanye is the American Dream.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Be all YOU can be. Don't worry about what others think. Do what you want to do...and be the best at it.

Fishy! Kanye West To Appear On Jimmy Kimmel Live After “Feud”!

Kanye West & Jimmy Kimmel Photo: AceShowbiz.com

So did Jimmy Kimmel just prank everyone again? Was his so-called feud with Kanye West just for media attention? Regardless, it worked and Kanye will sit down with Jimmy tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Kanye tweeted angrily at Kimmel after making fun of him on a BBC Live interview and replacing him with kids but keeping the dialog. The next night, Kimmel read Kanye's tweets about him on air, poking fun at him more.

The video has been removed on Kimmel's YouTube channel. Kanye has since deleted the tweets as well.

So will we see a meltdown on TV or a smiling Kanye laughing it all off? Guess we will have tune in. Duped!-DocFB

Diagnosis: Kanye taking a page out of Miley's book a little bit...
