“FUNKNROLL” The Official Lyrics! Did PRINCE Really Say…?? Listen Now!

PRINCE ART OFFICIAL AGE

"FUNKNROLL" the latest "club-banger" has been released from PRINCE. The song will be featured on "Art Official Age" and "PLECTREMELECTRUM" the debut album from 3RDEYEGIRL. Both albums will be released on 9/30.

The song has already been featured in NFL pre-game shows. Could that be where the video will world premiere? Hmm.

The Dallas Cowboys usually have the highest rated games on Sunday Night Football and will be playing the New Orleans Saints. Fact: Sunday Night Football is the most watched live event week after week with less DVR activity than any other TV show except for NFL playoffs and the Super Bowl. "New Girl" anyone?

When the song was being performed last year, we were sent the official lyrics from Paisley Park.

..And Your Super Bowl Halftime Show Performer Is….Bruno Mars!

Bruno Mars is set to perform at the Super Bowl XLVIII Halftime Show Feb. 2nd at Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.

The L.A. Times broke the news earlier today. The NFL will make the announcement tomorrow.

In recent years, the NFL chose safe acts as the halftime show, such as Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Who, and Bruce Springsteen. The past 2? Not so safe with Madonna and Beyonce.

On Thursday's episode of "What's Up Doc" we were wondering who would be the Super Bowl Halftime Show performer and Bruno Mars did not even cross our minds. We thought with the Super Bowl being in Jersey that Bon Jovi might be high on the NFL's wish list.

We think it is a great choice. Mars has had a lot of ballads as hits. It will have to be heavy with more upbeat numbers like "Locked Out Of Heaven" for sure....-DocFB

Diagnosis: What do you think of Bruno Mars being chosen to perform at the Super Bowl?

Faith Hill No Longer “Sunday Night Football” Girl

Faith Hill will no longer be singing the "Sunday Night Football" song for the NFL or NBC, the singer has announced.

Faith Hill tweeted “Amazing 2 have been part of SNF – an honor. I’ve just let everyone there know it’s time 2 let someone else rock the open,"

“Difficult decision. Kinda emotional. Love all u guys at SNF – I’ll b watching!!!”

Faith Hill has sang the song for the past 6 years after NBC had P!nk do the exact same song for a year before giving it to Faith.

I'm sad to see Faith go because it was good way to get the game started. The question is now who will be the one singing the song?

Will they get Pink back or will it be someone else? I'm hoping a female to be honest. After 20+ years of Hank Williams Jr. doing the "Monday Night Football" song before he put his foot in his mouth and Faith's being a breath of fresh air, it would be smart to stick to a woman.

So who do U think should replace Faith?-DocFB

Diagnosis: Won't be the same...will it?

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....

NFL Player Found Dead; Committed Suicide

OJ Murdock File Photo


NFL player O.J. Murdock who played for the Tennessee Titans committed suicide this morning in front of a Tampa High School he graduated from. He was only 25 years old.

According to reports, Murdock was found in his car at 8:30 a.m. with a self-inflicted gun shot wound.  He was transported to Tampa Hospital.

Murdock died around 2 hours later.

Murdock did not report to Titans training camp last week but was excused by head coach Mike Munchak for "personal reasons."

At this time, we do not know what his personal reasons were but we will update as soon as we know.

This follows after former NFL star Junior Seau committed suicide as well with a shot to his stomach, like Murdock, instead of his head.-DocFB

ESPN Pulls “MNF Song” After Hank Williams Likens Obama To Hitler

If you like hearing the "Monday Night Football" song before the game on Monday night, you might have to watch it on youtube from now on.

For the first time in 20 years, the "Monday Night Football" theme song will not air before the Monday Night game, ESPN announced.

Hank Williams appeared on "Fox & Friends" Monday (That was his first mistake) and he got political.  Hank Williams backed McCain and Palin in 2008.

He commented on John Boehner playing golf with Obama is like Netanyahu (Israeli Prime Minister) and Hitler.

Fox surprisingly distanced themselves from his comment and said they did not understand the comment.    Williams said "I'm glad you do not understand.  They are the enemy."  Fox then asked who is the enemy and without hesitation Williams stated "Obama and Biden.  The 3 Stooges."  Guess Williams can't count, can he?

After an outcry on social media sites, ESPN quickly responded with a statement;

"While Hank Williams, Jr. is not an ESPN employee, we recognize that he is closely linked to our company through the open to Monday Night Football. We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and as a result we have decided to pull the open from tonight's telecast."

This is not going to go away.  I will be surprised if ESPN uses the song for the rest of the year or ever again.  I'm all about freedom of speech but comparing someone to Hitler, is straight up lame.

We wonder who ESPN will turn to when it comes to recording a new song?  Why do I have a feeling they are already calling Justin Timberlake?-DocFB

Diagnosis:  I'm Still Ready For Some Football....Just Hold The Hank!

Will there be a wardrobe malfunction?

Madonna is scheduled to be the halftime show performer for the Super Bowl in 2012 according to a tip we received.  The NFL has not commented but the Super Bowl performer is usually not officially announced until November/December.

The super bowl will be held in Indianapolis on February 5 and will be televised on NBC.

The source we heard it from was the same source who told us Prince was playing the Super Bowl and then Bruce Springsteen.

This should be some Super Bowl performance....because all football fans listen to Madonna right?  Kidding.

What do you think of Madonna being the Super Bowl performer next year?

Diagnosis:  Lots of hits to fit into 12 minutes
