Justin Timberlake will be performing at the Hollywood Palladium next Sunday after the Grammys. The tickets sold out in seconds. Last night, he took the stage at Marc Cuban's Super Bowl Party and he brought Jay Z with him to perform "Suit & Tie" his latest single.

The video above of "Suit & Tie" with Jay Z is pretty good when it comes to the visual. As for the audio, it leaves a lot to be desired.

You know, it is like that girl you see at the mall that "looks good from afar" but up close "looks far from good"....yea...like that.

Here is "Little Pusher Girl" from last night's performance. When we have better video, we will replace it and let you all know.

Justin also played a new unreleased song entitled "Bad Girl" as well.

His band is much bigger than the band he used on his last tour and includes a horn section. Hmm. Who did he borrow that from?-DocFB

Diagnosis: No "Sexy Back", please!!!

Chaka Khan 2011

Chaka Khan along with Kanye West, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia, El Debarge & Jill Scott performed at this years Essence Festival in New Orleans this weekend.  After El Debarge performed, Chaka took the stage and in the middle of her set, talked about her past drug addictions.

We are not sure if maybe the message was for El Debarge who recently fell off the wagon and was back in rehab, but Chaka talked about it.  It was about the song "Troubled Little Angel" and this is what Chaka said.

"This next song is a song I wrote but I don't remember writing it because I was high,"  "That was then, this is now, I'm seven years clean."

Chaka also talked in the past to Mary J. Blige about drug addictions and attributes Chaka to getting clean. 

We are proud of Chaka and hope she stays on the road to recovery.-Dr.FB

Diagnosis:  Through The Fire

Lenny Kravitz loves New Orleans and the oil disaster is not going to change that.  In fact, Lenny is trying to help with the situation any way he can.

Last week, he visited with fisherman trying to save the fish as well as workers trying to clean up the mess.  Lenny is not afraid to get his hands dirty for the people and the city he loves. 

"Lenny is dedicating his life to this right now. He loves this place and will continue to do what he can to help."

And if they haven't yet, people should download the Gulf Aid single "It Ain't My Fault" Lenny did with Mos Def, Trombone Shorty & the Preservation Hall Jazz Band on iTunes.

Here is the video below:

Keep on doing what you are doing Lenny. We appreciate it and you.-Dr.FB

Lenny Kravitz “Fly’s Away” To Crash Choir

Lenny Kravitz crashed a choir in New Orleans late last week..and it was all recorded.

Here is a background on the story sent to us by Mathieu Bitton;

Lenny, Sidney Torres and I were sitting on the balcony at Muriel's restaurant in Jackson Square, New Orleans when a friend of ours suddenly hear a band playing "Fly Away" across the park. I looked at Lenny and said "dude, let's have you crash their gig and play with them." Sidney ran out ahead of us and I grabbed the camera (never leave the hotel without it) and LK and I ran out to where the VOP choir was playing a few blocks away.

When we arrived, the kids in the choir lost their minds. It went on for about 15 minutes, but as always, I wanted to capture the best of it in this 5:23 minute video. Mike Smeaton who sang and played lead guitar was so cool, I couldn't believe it. Never lost his cool. This was an incredible moment that will remind people why New Orleans is the greatest place for art in America right now. Don't believe what people are saying about why it's dangerous to come here, how the seafood is toxic and how's there's oil everywhere.

The reason we are all down here is to help fix this gulf disaster. Lenny is dedicating his life to this right now. He loves this place and will continue to do what he can to help.

I want to thank Mathieu for sharing this with us.  We are going to have exclusive photos of Lenny helping out in New Orleans and a few other things that Mr. Bitton wanted to share with us. 

For now, enjoy the video and let me know what you think.-Dr.FB

Kim Kardashian made her way to Los Angeles tonight after a weekend of cheering on Reggie Bush and the New Orleans Saints and taking in a Charlotte Hornets game with Reggie yesterday.

There is a "rumor" going around that Kim Kardashian made a bet with Reggie Bush that if the Saints win the Super Bowl, he will ask her to marry her.

Hmm.  Is that an incentive for Reggie to win or not to win?  Oh, come on Kim, We kid we kid.  As for picking a winner, I am out of doing that, so good luck Kim.-Dr.FB
