PRINCE has just released a reloaded version of the bootleg classic "EXTRALOVEABLE" entitled "EXTRALOVEABLE Reloaded" on his download site 3rdEyeGirl.com for . 88 cents!
This is the second song in as many weeks to be released through the web site as "Ain't Gonna Miss U When U're Gone" with Ledisi was available for download before.
The DrFunkenberry "Jam Of The Week" is "Shake That" by Gimm+Icky! Just who is Gimm+Icky though?
Tripp Weir and Jeff Garrison are GIMM+ICKY and they have scored TV placements on networks like ABC, E!, Nickelodeon, and the NFL Network in just over a year.
“We met up on a Monday with the concept, were immediately on the same page, nailed down the direction of our sound, wrote several choruses, and a day later were asked to sit in at a writers night,” recalls Weir of how the duo got together. “There was immediate response, which of course added fuel to the fire.”
You can purchase "Shake That" on i-Tunes now.
We are TOTALLY digging the track and want you to "Shake That" as well.

Diagnosis: Funk it!
Keaton Simons has just released his new album, "Beautiful Pain". The album was co-produced by Mikal Blue (Colbie Caillat, One Republic) and mastered by Gavin Lurssen of Lurssen Mastering. The album features co-writes with friends and peers Jason Mraz, Jason Reeves, and Glen Phillips.
The L.A. Times says Simons is “a triple threat.” He captivates audiences with an authentic voice, compelling and soul-baring songs, and a true command of both acoustic and electric guitars in every genre.
Earlier this month Keaton premiered the visually gorgeous video for current single "Beautiful Pain." The video was directed by Nick Spanos and executive produced by long time friend, and star of the Showtime series Californication, David Duchovny.
"This song has tremendous personal meaning to me. I wanted to show the extraordinary side of real, everyday people, and illustrate that love is worth fighting for,"
I dig the song and the video concept. Hope you guys enjoy it!-DocFB
Diagnosis: Beautiful...pain or not....
Not only is Rod Stewart planning on hitting the road in 2013, he will be releasing new music as well. "Time" is set for release later this year.
"Can't Stop Me Now", "She Makes Me Happy" and others are featured with a glimpse of music videos that look they could be sequels to "Infatuation" and "Forever Young" which is a good thing.
Take a look at "Time" which will be released later this year.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Some Guys Have All the Luck
Selena Gomez has released her new song "Rule The World" and it is not about her ex Justin Bieber. Or maybe it is.
“Our love was made to rule the world. You came and broke the perfect girl. Forget you ever knew my name.”
Hmm. A shot at Justin or not?-DocFB
Diagnosis: Cuing the comments for people to say "Who Cares?" but yet care enough to comment.
No Doubt just confirmed DrFunkenberry's story of yesterday that No Doubt will not be touring this year while they work on a new album.
Our source is very much on the inside but we also confirmed with Live Nation so when we published the story, we would not have them denying our story even though it was true.
No Doubt released an official statement today from the studio:
Greetings from the studio in Los Angeles...Yes, that's right, the studio!
While we were traveling the world last year promoting Push And Shove, Gwen mentioned she was inspired to write new music. In December, around the time of our hometown shows, we discussed the idea of starting 2013 by getting back into the studio together. We did so in January and the new music started flowing with unexpected ease. After spending three years recording the last album, this new pace feels incredibly exciting.
We have decided to follow our muse for the time being and focus on this new music that we don't want to stop. So, we will be postponing our tour plans briefly while we endeavor to create something special and inspired. Our goal as a band is to share this new music with you as quickly as possible - both recorded and live on tour.
As always, thank you all for your kind words, incredible support and patience. We promise to keep you updated with photos and videos from the studio, so be sure to follow us on Twitter and Instagram to get the latest updates. We will see you soon!
Gwen, Tony, Tom, Adrian
The good news in all of this is MORE new music from No Doubt. I just hope that Interscope promotes the next record better. Yes, I said it. No Doubt was everywhere from the Teen Choice Awards to Kimmel. Everywhere. Interscope dropped both balls on "Push & Shove" big time.
No Doubt also has to make sure announcements for singles, performances, and even photos from the studio get out first in other places besides their Facebook Fan Page, Twitter, and Instagram. As much as that hits the hardcore fans, it is missing the others and a chance for their audience to grow. The Facebook Fanpage is the worst for artists because with Facebook trying to use their own search engine, the information rarely hits google anymore. It is frustrating as a fan of No Doubt and good music.
Here is hoping for some great new music to come from No Doubt and here is hoping that Dr.Funkenberry and the No Doubt community can help with that new music. We all would LOVE to see that.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Don't need to Push & Shove to get a hold of me ND. Just saying.
Demi Lovato released "Heart Attack" last night and she puts on the pop face for those that might have been expecting the first single from her new release to be a ballad like "Skyscraper" was before.
There is the auto tune on the track she got flack for on "X Factor" last season.
"I think the image of the video, I'm taking on a different look this time around. I feel like I have my own thing going, like rocker-chic sophisticated, just a different kind of fashion style this time around."
"It's incredible that I get to incorporate [fashion] with my music, and it coincides. But a lot of the music video, I think, is going to be fashion-based but also performance-based. I really just like to rock out, especially in music videos when I can just have so many times where I can perform."
"The title is just about falling in love and taking that risk. But she's terrified, and by 'she,' I mean me. But I think everyone comes to a point where they feel very vulnerable in falling in love, and that's what I'm talking about."
We are sure the video will have high production value. No word if the video will star her current flame Wilmer Valderrama.
Demi is playing it safe but the song will be a huge hit. Just don't take too much time releasing a video.-DocFB
