Was it only 2 days ago now that PRINCE had a press conference at Lianne La Havas's place to announce tour plans there?
Press conference? Yes. Tour plans? Not exactly. It is Hit N Run style with the gigs being announced only a short time ahead. You know we will do our best to make sure you know when we know.
PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL held 2 press conferences where details of a UK Tour were to be unveiled. Instead were 2 rare performances and the question of UK gigs to come sometime today, Wednesday.
The first was a press conference in Lianne La Havas's living room where La Havas performed "Little Dragons" twice and a new song as well, according to BBC News 6.
They only had 3 journalists there as 3RDEYEGIRL performed an acoustic version of "FUNKNROLL" and "PRETZELBODYLOGIC" for the small crowd, in the small flat.

The BBC reporter felt Prince smelled great wearing Princense. That's a new word.
On 3RDEYEGIRL, Prince LOVES the band: "We've been together for over a year and it's perfect. The more we play, the more fun it is, and addictive it is.'' Prince would say that they would jam for days with ping pong battles sprinkled in between sessions.
They do not not know how long they will be in the UK and said it is an open-ended stay.
"We want to charge about $10 a ticket. This is a new band, people are getting something new."-Prince. Ticket price was quoted by BBC.
Prince is NOT playing Glastonbury.
They are looking to record the live shows for release while there.
At the second press conference at the Electric Ballroom, more reporters checked out Prince including Mumford & Sons.
They played a 30 minute set that consisted of "I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man", "PLECTRUMELECTRUM", "PRETZELBODYLOGIC", and a cover of "Play That Funky Music."
Prince was in a very good mood and loved the energy of the crowd.
There will be another performance tonight with a countdown of 7 P.M. at the Electric Ballroom. Although they said it would be a longer night and start earlier, we are not sure if they will exactly start at 7 P.M.-DocFB
Diagnosis: When we have full tour dates, we will post.
NBC has officially released this new teaser for the Super Bowl Half Time Show. Unlike the original commercial, this actually features Madonna concert footage.
It features "Vogue", "Lucky Star" and "Music" in the :29 second ad. Come on! You know she will be performing "4 Minutes" over "Vogue" but I can see "Music" and "Lucky Star" being in the performance.
Madonna still has yet to talk publicly on camera about the performance. Madonna will be holding a press conference February 2nd where she will hopefully reveal more. The press conference will be held in Indianapolis, Indiana, the site of the Super Bowl.
Although the commercial is brief, i do like that they used concert footage this time instead of old videos. What do you think of the new ad?-DocFB
Diagnosis: Seriously.....she has to do "4 Minutes"......
I really have no idea what to make of this video. I liked the start and the middle, I was like, Britney is so unpredictable and a loose cannon, she can do all of that.
Don't know what to quite make of the half Mickey Mouse shirt (We all know she was part of the Mickey Mouse Club) and then the dude pouring milk over himself and then...the ode to Michael Jackson at the end. Yea, not sure what that is about.

Diagnosis: Do You Wanna Go?
So, Prince held a press conference in New York City earlier this evening. A Rolling Stone journalist had it spot on when he said Prince would be holding a mysterious press conference....because people don't really know what he announced.
A full on U.S. tour (Major rumor for a couple of months now) or a residency at the Apollo Theatre in New York.
It is called "Welcome To America" and usually, when tourists first travel to America, the first place they either visit or travel is New York. So....it would make more sense that a residency in New York is happening. Also, the skyscrapers in some of the posters are of a New York Skyline. Plus, would you really call a tour "Welcome To America?"
"Maceo Parker. Esperanza Spaulding. Sheila E, Larry Graham, Mint Condition, Sinbad, Cassandra Wilson. Dr. Funkenberry doing the chicken dance. I am master of ceremonies. Welcome to America."
Below is audio and video of the press conference.
Also, Prince, I Love you man. I may not look you in the eye when we are in the same room and have my date talk to you instead of me, but it is all about respect. So, whoever picked out that shirt for you (please don't let it be someone I know) dock them the pay it cost them to make the shirt, sing 4 hail mary's n toss that top in yesterday's basura. I bet Rihanna is wearing it in 2 weeks though.-Dr.FB
P.S. thanks to a friend for sending the audio and the exclusive photos we had earlier.
What a great day to be a PRINCE fan, especially if you are in New York!
It all started as a tweet yesterday from a writer of Rolling Stone Magazine;
