Wil.I.Am was in a car accident with former X Factor host Cheryl Cole after a late night recording studio session.
Wil hit a parked car with his Cadillac. A parked car. Hmm.
The Black Eyed Peas singer was treated for a bloody nose and whiplash at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Cheryl was treated on scene and was not taken to the hospital.
The duo were reportedly recording together and on their way home when Wil hit the parked car.-DocFB
Diagnosis: "I Got A Feeling" that there is more to this story than we think. Man, that parked car came out of nowhere!
Nicole Sherzinger had a long flight from Los Angeles (LAX) to London (Heathrow Airport)and usually when the Doc has long flights, he rocks out to some Prince....on his Ipod. Nicole preferred to keep it cool and comfy.....wearing Prince.
Nicole is in London for "X Factor"...not the US version but the UK version where Simon Cowell has found a place for her.
We assume the Prince shirt is self-made....but it would be cool if there were some Prince shirts to buy online. We know some 7,000 females who would be buying one or 3.
The image is from Prince "The Greatest Romance Ever Sold" video and we have posted it below for your enjoyment. (Hmm. Searches Youtube. Video is not there. Shocker.) Well, for your enjoyment, here is Conan not being able to take his eyes off of Nicole's........breasts.
Looking good Nicole. Hopefully Conan remembers where your eyes are still.-DocFB
New X Factor Judge Demi Lovato looks tempting on the July Cosmopolitan magazine cover which is set to hit newsstands next week.
Demi, now 19, talks openly about her bipolar disorder, when she sees herself getting married, and what types of guys she will not date.
About being diagnosed with bipolar disorder;
“I felt relieved when I found out. Like I’m not completely crazy; there’s a medical reason for all of it.”
“It’s a daily thing; you don’t get time off from it. And if I feel myself slipping back into old patterns, I have to ask others for help, which is hard for me to learn, because I really like doing everything on my own.”
She also talked about where she feels she will be in her personal life;
“I want to be married with kids in 10 years.” (No word why she didn't say married to drfunkenberry in 10 years. Sure it was an honest mistake that she left my name out is all.)
She also touched on what guys she wouldn't date;
“I don’t have many deal breakers. I’ve done so much in my life, it doesn’t feel right to judge other people. Oh, I know one quality I won’t tolerate. I would never be with a guy who is controlling.”
Hmm. Wonder if Demi has a sweet spot for guys with blue eyes.
We know others have been harsh on Demi being an X Factor judge and an afterthought like L.A. Reid but we know better. We are glad that Cosmo is putting the shine on Demi and we are also proud of her talking about her issue of bipolar disorder and sharing what she is going through.-DocFB
It was obvious after Tuesday's show that Phillip Phillips was going to be the next American Idol. Maybe if Jessica Sanchez was able to perform with Jennifer Holliday on Tuesday's show, she would have made it more interesting.
Chaka Khan dazzled with her very skinny self and Neil Diamond showed that he can still dress sharp and bring his own style to the show.
There was a tribute to Robin Gibb that was somewhat off key. A tribute for Donna Summer that was to feature Sheila E. never made it to live air. Guess there just wasn't time after an on air proposal from former Idol castoff's Ace and a girl with a nice backside.
The finale underwhelmed like it did for most of the season. We were not talking about the performances, aside from Jessica Sanchez being "saved" weeks ago. Nope. We focused on Jennifer Lopez's dresses and some overobsessed on her make up. We looked for what Steven would say.
We never had that shining moment. We had a moment when Sanchez did "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston earlier in the season. To show how much this season lacked, they had Sanchez sing the song again last night.
The American Idol Finale used to pull in Super Bowl numbers with special guests and a few surprises. There were no surprises. Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler made it bearable last night but not "must see" at all.
So, expect Jennifer to get her $25 million plus. Expect Tyler to pull in $12 million and to see them next year. The thing is, unless the talent improves, something has to change on Idol.
Somewhere, Simon Cowell is scheming. If the judges of American Idol are stealing the show, his judges will do more than that. With Britney Spears signed on and up and comer Demi Lovato there as well, it makes "must see tv" for X Factor.
The reason? The talent pool on X Factor was much better than Idol's this year. Simon knew his show needed improvements and fast. Hiring Spears and Lavato gets them age groups that Idol no longer has.
Idol had to remind us about Kris Evans and Taylor Hicks last night. They even took credit for Adam Lambert (Not an Idol winner) hitting number 1 knocking off Carrie Underwood, who was an Idol winner.
The Voice isn't dominating yet although the talent pool on that show was better than Idol this season. Simon Cowell knows Idol dropped the ball and he intends to pick it up and not give it back.
What did you think of the Idol Finale last night?-DocFB
So the worst kept secret in Hollywood is out; Britney Spears & Demi Lovato are your new X Factor judges, replacing Nicole Sherzinger and Paula Abdul. Still no word on who is replacing Steve Jones.
Over a month ago we talked about Britney's millions to judge on X Factor, $15 million to be exact, where there were others wanting to join the panel, including most vocally, Chaka Khan. They went and signed Demi Lovato instead, wanting an even younger demographic.
It has been reported that Britney was nervous at the press conference Monday and there are photos of her where she appears to have been biting her nails quite bad. She stumbled in her speech. Those that wanted her to fail and cause a train wreck on live TV are already salivating like birds in the desert over live meat. Pathetic.
As for Demi Lovato, others cannot go one sentence on her without saying "who" or talking about her barely getting paid a million dollars to be on the show. So what? Those that read DrFunkenberry.com on the regular know all about Demi Lovato with her ginormous hit "Skyscraper" last year and the problems she has had with her weight and other issues. People forget, she is not only judging but mentoring. Whose to say she does not get the girls 12-18? Her advice will be spot on as she is not so removed from that age. She will be able to help them in ways the other judges can't.
As for L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell, let's male no mistake about it; these are Simon's girls, not Reids. Ahhh, L.A., did you think we would forget last year when our girl Drew covered Lovato's "Skyscraper" and you called it "an old people song" and got booed by the crowd? Nope, we didn't forget buddy. Chris Rene so far has had more success than Melanie so far so we will give you that. Perhaps you are not as in touch as you thought is all. I remember you telling a friend of the site one time that he was "out of touch" but he has been proving to you ever since that "he is the touch" buddy.
All in all, I am looking forward to X Factor. Not for the train wreck. Britney will have her struggles but will still prove people wrong. For those that do not know who Demi is, we look forward to her judging, her input, and showing those Italian roots when Simon or L.A. try to put her down.
Are you looking forward to X Factor this fall?-DocFB
Britney Spears is close to signing a deal worth $16 million dollars to be a judge on Simon Cowell's X Factor. This is according to US Weekly who broke the story.
Britney Spears has been teasing about big news this week and the only thing that came was that MTV's "America's Best Dance Crew" will be performing "Womanizer" to close out the show Monday night. She also tweeted a photo from the Twister Dance shoot, which you can see above.
The Us Weekly source states: "No paperwork has actually been signed yet, but they finally came to terms,"
X Factor's people are denying the rumors. It was reported last month that Britney was offered $10 million to do the show.
Our friend Trent who runs PinkIsTheNewBlog is beyond excited. As he points out, the news is not official but he cannot hold back his excitement;
"This is HUGE HUGE HUGE! We get to see Britney on TV every week!!!!! X Factor, I love you! You have gained a very loyal and faithful fan in me and I’m sure LEGIONS of other people by securing Britney Spears to judge your show."
We are with you Trent big time. Now we just need Britney to tweet it already!-DocFB
Chris Rene, the X Factor contestant has fixed his grill and released a video for "Young Homie" his first video.
When he is not wearing his hat, he looks completely unrecognizable. The work he did on his teeth is almost as amazing as his background story.
I can't imagine a group of people throwing up those signs in the video, but I am digging the song, and the positive message. The title makes me glad there is no longer record stores so I don't have to ask the clerk where "Young Homie" by Chris Rene is at.
Everything else is working and props to L.A. Reid for striking first with X Factor talents.-DocFB
