Katy Perry & John Mayer were trying to make a hasty exit after eating at Sardi's in the Broadway District in New York last night. One thing stopping them other than camera's? An older gentleman.
Ahh. Not just an older gentleman but John's father Richard. He didn't seem to like the camera's too much...and who could blame him?
We haven't seen John hanging with Katy's parents yet...and the way after they slammed her ex....we don't blame him for rushing into that.
John would probably look like his father does when the camera's are on him when that happens.-DocFB
Diagnosis: This relationship has been running rather "Hot n Cold"..ahem.
In what is sure to shock the PTC and others, Howard Stern made it official by announcing he is the new judge of "America's Got Talent" this morning.
Howard Stern replaces Piers Morgan and the show wanted Howard so bad, they are moving the entire show and other judges to New York so Howard does not interrupt his radio show, which is based in New York.
I am sure the NBC executives are extremely pleased. NBC is struggling for a hit and the attention and controversy that will follow Howard and wondering what he will say next will entice people.
He is not as raunchy as he used to be and is a perfect choice for a judge. Still, it is going to ruffle some feathers.
What do you think of the choice?-DocFB

Adam attended Nikka Costa's gig in New York and was having a great time in the VIP area. One of Funkenbabies was in attendance and got us these shots. Adam did notice him.

What a night. Janelle Monae opening for Prince and guesting with him on stage and then......after midnight....Stevie Wonder! The icon took center stage with Sheila E. and Prince to a funky rendition of "Superstition" to the crowd's delight.
Stevie jammed on harmonica and did lead vocals with Prince and Sheila backing him up til Stevie wanted to play and they lead him to the keyboards as Prince played bass. Amazing.
Ahh.. But it wasn't over! Shortly, after 2 a.m., Prince and Janelle Monae took over the Forum club with Shelby and the NPG.
Prince played drums over the track DJ Rashida was spinning to kick it off while the Prince's band and Janelle's got into place.
Shelby was asking the crowd how are they feeling over "Can You Feel It" by the Jacksons. "If you don't wanna party, I'm gonna give you 2 minutes to leave" Shelby said and let them know some "Brown Skin" was going to be happening up in this place.
"Til the sun came up" was the chant Shelby started n it continued almost until that time.
After the chant it led into, "It Takes 2" with a funky bass solo by Ida Neilson. It continued with "Got My Mind Made Up" with Prince on the boards and singing. Prince then went to the far end of the stage as Janelle came up with a cool hat on.
Janelle sings "It's like a river...love is not a fantasy..." very heartfelt.
As Janelle gives it up for the NPG, Prince finds himself behind the boards again as the band kicks into "Stratus" then "Superstition" with Shelby J. on lead vocals. "Brown Skin" is finally unleashed on us.
Deacon Prince asks if sister Monae wants to say anything and she replies "I just want to say I've seen the light." Prince and Morris joke around saying "Amen" and "Hey Man" and then Prince is just cracking jokes left and right like it was about to turn into comedy hour at the Forum.
" Janelle Monae and Stevie Wonder. Stop the presses. Tell me I am not in heaven." is Prince's only reply after what was just laid down. A freestyle from George 2.0 as Janelle Monae and Shelby perform "Outstanding" with Prince smiling and having a good time.
Prince, Shelby, and Janelle leave with chants of "Til the sun came up" ringing through the club.
What a night. Eddie Murphy, Paula Abdul, Taylor Dayne, Sanaa Hamri and others were enjoying the night.
As we were there Prince news was being told to us that we want to share:
Prince will be attending the American Ballet Theatre Gala in NY on Monday. Prince and the NPG recently donated $250,000 to them and it is being reported that the musical directors are in meetings with Prince. We are sure they are not talking bout what their favorite salad is!
Prince will be playing the North Sea Jazz Festival and Poland. All other dates that have been talked about, we cannot confirm with Prince's people. We know we are slow to post shows outside the U.S. but until we get confirmation, we do not like to put the dates out there. We apologize but it is better to be patient with overseas matters and get the correct information.
Hope you understand.
Prince will be returning to Los Angeles after a week in Fresno and San Jose. The dates that will see 21 Nights return is May 27th, 28th, and 29th, for Memorial Day Weekend.
There is going to be more Inglewood swinging and we wonder if any more club shows like what happened at the Troubadour this past week. A Doctor can only hope.-Dr.FB
