Prince performed 2 shows at Montreux over the weekend as we told you first a while ago. From what we have seen, it was a success. Would we expect anything less from him?
He did 2 90 minute shows and a few songs twice. Rumor and rumor only has it right now that the songs were done twice for a possible DVD release. Wait...what happened to that Coachella DVD? Well, we will see.
Prince performed classic tracks as well as new ones from his latest 3 CD set. Heck, for good measure, he even did 2 songs off his protege's CD.
Prince was also all over pop culture this week. From a mention on "The Colbert Report" on Monday to 2 mentions on ESPN's Espy Awards. Samuel L. Jackson even dressed up as Prince during the award show, circa the Purple Rain era with purple studded jacket and wearing those "I Would Die 4 U" pants. Mr. Jackson. Whew. Later in the show, Quarterback superstar Peyton Manning pretended to have a conversation with Prince over the phone.
Even the Home Run Derby had a Princely moment with Prince Fielder won the Home Run Derby with some music by, you guessed it, Prince playing. Not to mention every tacky sports journalist using a Prince metaphor on that night's news cast.
Prince, the pop culture icon and the Montreux funk man, all in one.-Dr.FB

When I said anyone who is someone would be at the Lakers-Celtics game today, you knew I was telling the truth. What a game. What a list of celebrities.
Mark Wahlberg, Kevin James, Adam Sandler, NBA Legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Shwayze member Cisco Adler with father Lou Adler, Samuel L. Jackson, Diane Cannon, Dustin Hoffman, George Lopez, Michael Clarke Duncan & wife, The Music Icon Prince with Bria Valente, Denzel Washington, and Rap Legend Snoop Dogg.
If you were not lucky to get the hook-up for courtside seats, they were going for $10 grand a seat. 10 grand!
As for the game, the Lakers won and I am happy but remember, trophies are not handed out in December.-Dr.FB
Sho'nuff, aka the Shogun of Harlem, will be returning in a remake of "The Last Dragon". Wow. This movie will coincide with the 50th Anniversary of Motown.
"I'm a huge fan of the original and look forward to bringing Sho'Nuff into the 21st century," Jackson said.
The 1985 movie did pretty decet at the box office and has achieved cult status. Wonder who they will get to play Vanity's role? The tranny from the Pussycat Dolls? Kim Kardashian? Hmm, well I like the last one.-Dr.FB
