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 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?
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.
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.
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...
In a revealing new interview with Harper's Bazaar UK, Madonna opens up about her first year in New York and about being raped on a rooftop at knife point.
Talking about her first year in New York, the pop singer says:
"New York wasn't everything I thought it would be. It did not welcome me with open arms. The first year, I was held up at gunpoint. Raped on the roof of a building I was dragged up to with a knife in my back, and had my apartment broken into three times. I don't know why; I had nothing of value after they took my radio the first time. The tall buildings and the massive scale of New York took my breath away. The sizzling-hot sidewalks and the noise of the traffic and the electricity of the people rushing by me on the streets was a shock to my neurotransmitters. I felt like I had plugged into another universe. I felt like a warrior plunging my way through the crowds to survive. Blood pumping through my veins, I was poised for survival. I felt alive.
Jimmy Kimmel was scheduled to do an interview with KTLA 5 before his Twitter beef with Kanye West erupted. Although on to promote a food festival, Jimmy talked candidly about Kanye.
His assistant did not know it was Kanye calling and Kanye went off on him. He made fun of Kanye tweeting all in caps to let everyone know he is mad at him.
Kimmel gained 60,000 followers on Twitter over Kayne going off on him.
He also agreed with Kanye that his face is ugly.
Kanye ran into paps outside his place at 4 A.M. trying to talk with about Jimmy Kimmel or as they said "Jimmmm" and Kanye was not as nice as Kimmel was to KTLA. Check out the clip here.
Where's the beef?-DocFB
Diagnosis: Parading outside someone's place at 4 A.M. and it is not for sex? Soooo not cool!
There is no such thing as bad publicity anymore. Anyone who told you otherwise is living in the 90's like Arsenio Hall. Miley Cyrus has her and everyone else's tongue's wagging in the past month. So much so that Rolling Stone has put her on the cover. Naked.
Miley opened up about her MTV VMA performance with Robin Thicke stating "no one is talking about the man behind the ass, are they?":
"Honestly, that was our MTV version. We could have even gone further, but we didn't. I thought that's what the VMAs were all about! It's not the Grammys or the Oscars. You're not supposed to show up in a gown, Vanna White-style. It's supposed to be fun!"
"No one is talking about the man behind the ass. It was a lot of 'Miley twerks on Robin Thicke,' but never, 'Robin Thicke grinds up on Miley.' They're only talking about the one that bent over. So obviously there's a double standard.”
"America is just so weird in what they think is right and wrong. Like, I was watching Breaking Bad the other day, and they were cooking meth. I could literally cook meth because of that show. It's a how-to. And then they bleeped out the word 'f**k.' And I'm like, really? They killed a guy, and disintegrated his body in acid, but you're not allowed to say 'f**k'? It's like when they bleeped 'molly' at the VMAs. Look what I'm doing up here right now, and you're going to bleep out 'molly'? Whatever."
She has a point. I am agreeing with Molly....er..I mean Miley.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Will a man pose on Rolling Stone in a couple of a months mocking Miley? Say...Will Farell? Hmm...
Prince is all about Livestream. In a conversation with him at Paisley Park, he expressed this to me. He compares Livestream to a boxing match that you watch live but if you already know the results, it is not as interesting to watch. Some would say with at least a boxing match, you know when it is going to happen, but that doesn't concern Prince.
"Livestream is the future. Livestream is now. We go live and you are either there or not. It is about being in the now."
For the past month, Prince has used livestream to drop rehearsal jams, play unreleased tracks, put his songs in the mix, and have the camera on while he was performing at Paisley Park a couple weeks back.
