Eric Benet Releases Lyric Video For New Song “Real Love”

Eric Benet has a new song entitled "Real Love" and has released a lyric video for it. The album is due to be released in Spring 2012.

Earlier this summer, Eric Benet got married and his wife Manuella is pregnant with the couple's first child.  We are sure Eric was inspired by both when recording this song.

The song is sung in a high falsetto by Eric much like his last hit "Sometimes I Cry" in which he earned a Grammy nomination.

Check out the lyric video above and let us know what you think.-DocFB

Tony Bennett has made a statement regarding his comments on 9/11 during the Howard Stern Show.

Tony stated:

I am so grateful to be an American and as a World War II veteran, I was proud to fight to protect our values, which have made America the greatest country on the planet.

There is simply no excuse for terrorism and the murder of the nearly 3,000 innocent victims of the 9/11 attacks on our country.

My life experiences - ranging from the Battle of the Bulge to marching with Martin Luther King - made me a life-long humanist and pacifist, and reinforced my belief that violence begets violence and that war is the lowest form of human behavior.

I am sorry if my statements suggested anything other than an expression of my love for my country, my hope for humanity and my desire for peace throughout the world.

We really feel that Tony was just speaking his mind and was talking off the cuff.   It is obvious that Tony felt remorse for what he said feeling it offended people.

What do you think?-DocFB

Conan Caught Staring At Nicole Scherzinger’s Breasts!

We can't really blame Conan for staring at Nicole Scherzinger's breasts on his show last night.  It really did look like they were painted on.

At the 2:04 mark, Nicole tells Conan to focus on her face instead of her breasts, calling out the host for just straight staring at her chest.

They then start talking about her co-host of her new show X-Factor Simon Cowell's man boobs aka Moobs.  Yea, I rather be talking about Nicole's.  That's just me though.

If you can get past staring at them, she really does a great impersonation of Britney Spears.  Check out the clip...and her breasts.-DocFB

Ellen Gets Her Groove On To Prince’s “Kiss”

Ellen had her Emmy special yesterday and felt the need to dance to "Kiss" by Prince.

We must say her dancing to "Kiss" is a whole lot better than Lady Antebellum covering "Kiss" that's for sure.

The audience was loving it...except for some girl you can see with her arms crossed at the 1:15 mark.  What's her deal?  Shake it like a white girl!  Do something.

We need some Prince news.  Like 7 minutes ago.  Something.  Anything.  Hmm.  Prince on Ellen would be cool.  No.  No. No!  We mean on her show.  Where is your mind?

For now, we will just enjoy Ellen doing her thing...for as long as the video stays up.-DocFB

Gabe Dixon Performs “Even The Rain” Live In Room 5

Gabe Dixon took to Room 5 to perform "Even The Rain" live with just him and his trusty piano.

The album, which has been on rotation on my iPod, is getting great reviews all over.

Here is a quote from our friend at USA Today Elysa Gardner speaking on the studio version of "Even The Rain":

“(A) twinkling, chiming gem, a slice of love in stormy weather featuring (Alison) Krauss’ unmistakably radiant vocal harmonies.”

We are digging Gabe. Check out his performance above and let us know what you think.-DocFB
