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
Stephen Colbert debuted his newly shaved head on CNN today making a special appearance with someone in the military who is also a principal and was giving his speech to his students.
President Obama appeared over satellite and ordered Stephen Colbert to get his head shaved. In front of a roomful of troops and a General, Colbert was not going to back down. The Colbert Report records in Iraq this week and airs this week, despite reports elsewhere.
Colbert debuts shortly (not just his hair) after the :56 second mark. He doesn't look as bad with a shaved head as I thought. Stephen's show, the Colbert Report, is filming in Iraq this week to air this week. Whatever you do, please don't make Jon Stewart shave his head. He would def look ugly with that look.-Dr.FB
