Brett Favre Retires……Or Not

Seems we may have got suckered in......again.

So after reports of Favre retiring and texting certain teammates "This Is It" it seems Favre may not be retiring.  Nope.  He was just telling people he was seeing Michael Jackson's "This Is It" and people got confused.

The official word is that Favre nor the Vikings have confirmed Brett Favre is retiring.

It comes off to me that Favre wanted people to talk about him.  Let him know he is wanted.  The Vikings are offering Favre more money and letting Favre know he is seriously wanted. 

The ploy worked.  Everyone is talking about Favre on sports radio.  Favre is one of the top 5 quarterbacks of all time.  No question about it.  The Vikings were one game away from the Super Bowl with Favre in place.

Chace Crawford Will Not Get “Footloose”

Chace Crawford will not be getting "Footloose" for the 80's remake.   Crawford has dropped out of the role that Zac Efron previously dropped out of.

Chace is saying it is his busy schedule that caused him to drop out but since Kenny Ortega left the project last year to work with Michael Jackson for his "This Is It" tour, which unfortunately never happened, things haven't been the same and Chace is doing the right thing by abandoning the project.

It's not like we need another 80's remake getting ruined.  I think The Karate Kid remake this year will do that all by itself.-Dr.FB

Orianthi will perform on this week's American Idol this Wednesday March 17th.

We broke the news exclusively on Friday to our Twitter Followers and our Facebook Fan Page  as Fox did not want to make the official announcement  on the site til Monday, so we snuck to our followers because they didn't say we couldn't.  :)

Orianthi will be performing "According To You" on the show, which is slowly creeping up the charts that used to matter, The Billboard Charts and is sitting at Number 17 right now.  She has been on Funkenberry Radio's Top 21 for quite a while now. 

When we interviewed Orianthi a few weeks back, she let us know that she recorded an updated version of "Stairway To Heaven" by led Zeppelin with Mary J. Blige and guitar God Steve Vai. 

ALSO, Orianthi will be performing  on this Thursday's "Tonight Show With Jay Leno" and that performance should be hot as well. Janet Jackson will be a guest on the show.  As you all should know, Orianthi was due to play with Janet's brother, Michael Jackson (You might have heard of him) before his untimely death.  She is all over the documentary "This Is It" which is now out on DVD.

Hope you enjoy the great photo of Orianthi and be sure to check out her rocking performance on "American Idol" this week to see why we are raving about this girl.  "This Is NOT It" for her for sure.....-Dr.FB

Michael Jackson wanted to perform with Lady Gaga

Michael Jackson was known throughout his career for his collaborations with other great artists; Lionel Richie, Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder just to name a few.

When it came time to plan for guests on his "This Is It" tour, choreographer Travis Payne says he put together a list that included Whitney Houston, Diana Ross, Sting, Celine Dion, Justin Timberlake and several others. Jackson approved but said there was another diva he wanted to join him onstage: Lady Gaga.

Payne revealed in a recent interview that the late King of Pop wanted to invite the "Paparazzi" singer to join him on stage during his "This Is It" tour. Jackson told Payne, "You got to get into her. She's good."

Last November, Payne received a phone call from Lady Gaga to discuss some choreography work. Payne told her about Jackson's wish to perform with her. "Of course she got moved by it," Payne recalls.

Payne went on to direct and choreograph Lady Gaga's performances on the American Music Awards, "Ellen,"  "The Jay Leno Show," and "X-Factor."

Seeing Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga together on stage would have been something! What do you think they would have performed together? - Dr.FB
