Our photo of the moment is of Lady Gaga at the YouTube awards on Sunday dressed up like the cover art for "Dope" her latest single.
Usually, we tell people to smile for pictures. This time, we think it is better if she doesn't.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Oh Lady Extravaganza.....
Billboard editor Bill Werde is taking aim at Lady Gaga for what he feels is unfair and questionable promotion for her latest single "Applause" with a contest and a link that allowed you to watch her new video 150 times in a row.
Billboard is taking exception to the tweet she has since deleted where it allowed you to watch the "Applause" video 150 times in a row on YouTube. YouTube views now count towards chart positions so Billboard is upset that she was trying to manipulate the charts. Gaga and other Interscope acts had views taken away from them late last year as Billboard was about to implement the views into chart positions.
Also, Gaga was and still is asking for her fans to buy multiple digital copies of "Applause" along with screen shots of radio requests, selfies/video and the fan who did it the most would be flown out to see her perform at the iTunes Festival in London.
Bill Werde took to Twitter to explain his frustration with Gaga.
Showing Prince's sense of humor, he re-released "Breakfast Can Wait" on 3rdEyeTunes.com with a digital cover of Dave Chappelle dressed as Prince.

As Prince was joining Twitter, he was releasing live videos on YouTube but taking them down only after a few hours. It seems some are staying up....for now.
We have a feeling that PRINCE & 3rdEyeGirl have been listening to your requests to be able to watch the 3rd Eye TV Livestreams at anytime...and they are delivering!
UPDATE: 2 of the 3 videos have been made available again.
The 3 clips shown from the Paradiso Amsterdam 3rdEyeGirl show are now up on YouTube! "Screwdriver" (above) and "Bambi" and "Let's Go Crazy Reloaded" featuring Frankenstein are also available.
Questlove took to Instagram, taking a photo of a DJ program where if you look to the top left is Prince's name and we can only assume that Quest was adjusting level's of Prince's early material which has not been remastered and several top not DJ's such as Quest have made their own type of remaster's when it comes to the purple one's work.

Taylor Swift took to you YouTube yesterday for a web chat announcing her new album will be titled "Red" and at the same time playing a new song entitled "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" which is dedicated to an ex-boyfriend. Didn't see that coming.
"Red" will be in stores October 22nd and is slated to have 16 songs on the record. Also, expect it to hit number 1 that week as well.-DocFB
Rihanna let it be known as soon as her video for "Where Have You Been" was released that she wanted the most views ever in 1 day.
The video received over 1 million views in that time which we are sure is impressive but did not eclipse the record of others. Maybe next time, release it on a Thursday/Friday where your fans will have the time to watch a video, that is not exactly groundbreaking, again and again.
That is not to say we do not like it. It is visually stunning, but one of her best songs. What do you think of the video?-DocFB
