Rest in peace, sweet Prince.
Get into that weird place, that only Prince can bring you to, on this Monday morning.
Everyone has their favorite musicians. Some come from very different genres of music and would never cross vocal or musical sound waves, but what if, for one day, you could have those musicians and singers combine for one mega show? That is what we did on this week’s Monster Blog. Here we go!
This was probably a combination of the easiest decisions I’ve ever had to make. Sam Smith on the vocals is a no brainer. I just saw him at MSG and he has the voice of an angel wrapped inside another angel. Prince on the guitar is a bit of a wildcard and keeps everyone on their toes, plus if we ever need backup vocals we have PRINCE. Louie Armstrong on the trumpet instead of a bass player because if your band doesn’t have a trumpet I’m not sure what the point is. Keith Moon on the drums because someone needs to party with the band manager, The Iron Sheik. Since Sam Smith is the vocalist, the band would have a soulful blues type of sound, but with Louie on the trumpet we can get really weird when we need to. Maybe record a song or two with Sam, Louie and Prince on vocals? Dabble in this, dabble in that. I honestly just really want to hear The Iron Sheik call everyone he comes into contact with a ‘raisin dick’.
Let me start by saying that no matter what hypothetical situation we did for this week’s monster blog I was going to pick Freddy Mercury. I have been on a mega Queen kick for approximately the last 22 years so The mustachio melody maker was a no brainer. For my drummer the man from Rush and arguably greatest drummer of all-time, Neil Peart, was a solid choice. On Bass I selected the man who single handedly changed the 4 stringed axe, Les Claypool. If you have ever listened to the band Primus then you know how crucial the bass was to their sound. For lead guitar I went with the guy I idolized growing up, Joe Perry. Aerosmith was and still is my favorite rock and roll band, so the man behind the vocals and solos from ‘Mama Kim’ was obviously my selection. And to manage this squad of talented gentlemen? Artie Lange. Sure, he may be unstable and on the verge of a heart attack, but nobody would get us more money per venue than him. This band is built for one thing, and one thing only…classic rock covers. Cover bands are so hot right now!

You knew SNL was going to bring out the big guns for this season, and they don’t get much bigger in the comedy world than Jim Carrey and Chris Rock. Carrey will be hosting his second episode of SNL, and will be there to promote Dumb and Dumber To, while Chris Rock returns to the stage where he was once a cast member. If I’m being honest with myself, any time I get to see Prince perform on live TV is a beautiful bonus. Should be two fantastic episodes.
Prince – It’s going to be a prince of a party.
Britain’s royal family has plans to fete Prince George’s first birthday with a private tea party in Kensington Palace, according to Vanity Fair.
The Royal heir will become a 1-year-old on Tuesday and he’s already proving himself to be a forward child — already walking on his own.
His parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, released a photo ahead of his birthday that shows just how much their little cherub has grown.
I’m sure it’s great being apart of the Royal family, but Prince George is getting screwed here. Obviously as a soon to be 1-year-old he doesn’t have much say in his birthday party plans. He doesn’t have much say in anything since he probably can’t talk. But when he grows up and looks at pictures from his 1st birthday party and finds out it was a tea party he’s going to be pissed. You know what 1-year-olds don’t give a shit about? Tea. I’m not saying he needs a huge stripper blowout birthday party, but something in between that and a tea party seems logical. You’re the Royal Family; you have unlimited resources, and you land on a private tea party for your newest addition’s 1st birthday? The lack of creativity and effort is disappointing to say the least. Also, I’m not too familiar with the developmental stages of a baby, but the fact that he’s walking around before the age of 1 blew my mind. Is this normal? I’m pretty sure I wasn’t functionally walking until at least 4 or 5.
Source – It is only days since Prince Harry broke up with his long-term girlfriend Cressida Bonas, but a strip club in Memphis is hoping he will be ready to try to get over the heartbreak by paying them a visit.
The newly single 29-year-old is due to arrive in the Tennessee city where he will attend a society wedding this weekend.
As residents get ready to try to spot the prince during his trip, one of the city’s strip clubs has put up a large sign that says ‘Welcome Prince Harry’.
Source – Prince Harry partied it up in Miami Beach this week.
The British royal was in town Wednesday for his friend and British club owner Guy Pelly’s bachelor party.
The group of friends first enjoyed dinner at Hakkasan and reportedly stayed until close to enjoy cocktails, tea and coffee. They then hit up LIV nightclub at the Fontainebleau.
Both Harry and Prince William will be ushers at Pelly’s wedding to Holiday Inn heiress Lizzy Wilson on May 3. The couple will be married in Memphis, Tenn.
Decent week. I went to Buffalo Wild Wings and saw Spiderman 2 but I guess partying at Liv in Miami and getting the hero’s welcome from a stripclub is pretty fantastic too. When the “who would you want to switch places with” conversation comes up the same names are always mentioned: Leo, Clooney, Timberlake, Mayer. But what about Prince Harry? He’s younger than all of them. Also, he’s a PRINCE. A real life, badass prince. He was in the Royal Air Force which just sounds incredible. Throw in the fact that girls dig the British accent and you have yourself a bonafide member of the “who would I rather be” club. Now that he smartened up and is living the single life, the sky is really the limit for him. If he’s a halfway decent guy, he can get into any club, stadium or attraction in the entire world. The best part? He has an older brother, which equals zero responsibility. I’ve always been under the impression that unelss you’re the King or next in line, you can basically do whatever you want. Vegas today, Miami tomorrow. Memphis the next day because apparently people get married in Memphis. All I know is once your name is on the marquee at The Pony, you’ve made it.
For those unaware, Prince officially joined Twitter a few weeks ago (@3rdeyegirl) and it basically turning the platform on it’s head. The guy legally changed his name to a symbol, so giving him 140 characters of free range is going to be fun to follow. Almost on cue, Prince tweeted out the following concerning his new single Breakfast Can Wait:

Dave Chappelle, dressed as Prince, serving pancakes. Straight out of a Charlie Murphy True Hollywood Story. It really doesn’t get much better than that. Now we can all go purify ourselves in the waters of Lake Minnetonka.
