Beyonce Shuts Everyone Up By Performing National Anthem Live

We all know that Beyonce can sing. Her lip syncing at the Presidential Inauguration was blown out of proportion. I used it as a joke but we all know Beyonce can sing.

During her press conference for the NFL Super Bowl Half-Time Show, she belted out a rendition of the "Star-Spangled Banner" and it shut everyone up. If she lip syncs at the Super Bowl, then they will talk again til the Grammys.

Now maybe we can move to something more important. What is the other big music news this week. A fight between Chris Brown and Frank Ocean? Sigh. Grammy week cannot come soon enough.-DocFB

Diagnosis: She got you....speechless....

Demi Lovato Performs “The Star Spangled Banner” At World Series

Demi Lovato sang "The Star Spangled Banner" at Game 5 of The World Series before her Texas Rangers beat The St. Louis Cardinals.

I might be a little biased but I liked her version 3 years earlier at the Thanksgiving game for the Dallas Cowboys.

She kept it cool for the World Series version but at the Cowboy game, she killed it.  Big time.

Here are both versions.  So, which one is better?  N how soon will she be singing it before the Super Bowl?-DocFB

Diagnosis:  Lovatics, You Know I'm Right......

Funk It: Exclusive Interview With Malina Moye

DrFunkenberry was lucky enough to get some time with funk/R&B artist Malina Moye. If you like ol' skool funk, we recommend checking out Malina's new album "Diamonds and Guitars" - it's full of great guitar riffs, funky grooves and strong ballads. Listen to a couple of tracks below.

Malina grew up in a family of musicians. Mom and Dad played for the band The Techniques and she considers George Clinton, Whitney Houston and other funk legends her cousins. You can see and hear their influences in her music, from her "upside-down" guitar playing ala Jimi Hendrix, to the waa-waa riffs of Prince and funky grooves of Parliament Funkadelic.

In the interview, Malina talked to us about growing up funky, meeting legends like Prince and Michael Jackson, belting out the national anthem before thousands, her Dad's crush on Sheila E., and what she has in store for this year. You can download Malina's "Diamonds and Guitars" from Amazon or iTunes. Enjoy - Dr.FB

Adam Lambert attended the Young Hollywood Awards last night where he rocked the red carpet and left with an award.

Adam won the award for Young Hollywood Artist of the Year.  While Kris Allen was singing the National Anthem at the Staple Center, there were people in bars nationwide saying that Adam should have won and then people saying that Kris deserved to win.  It's interesting, weeks later people are still debating who should have won. 

Well, last night, it was Adam Lambert taking the award home for Young Hollywood.-Dr.FB
