The Daily Hotness: Jeff Buckley

Yeah, we know, Jeff Buckley is sadly deceased. But that didn’t stop his cover of the Leonard Cohen tune “Hallelujah” from going to the top of the iTunes downloads chart this week did it? The song, released originally in 1984, and then re-recorded by Buckley ten years later, was performed by American Idol hopeful Jason Castro a few weeks ago and since then the song has seen a major resurgence. While it’s always been a popular song to cover, both before and after Buckley did it, to see his version leap in sales is amazing. While the original is incredible, Buckley’s version has always been a favorite. And as an artist, so was he. [JeffBuckley.com] Keep reading »

Clarkson Goes Commando

Kelly Clarkson explained to a reporter how a good luck charm, or lack thereof, helped her win American Idol. It wasn’t a rabbit’s foot or a four-leaf clover — her secret was safely between her legs. Kelly goes commando! She claims that since her panties have been gone, she’s been able to breathe and give her performances her all. But, Kelly worries she’ll be exposed as the next celebrity crotch shot victim and nobody wants a pap to smear them. Despite her fear of winding up like Britney Spears, she stands by her naked ambition, “Why’d anyone want a little thing up their butt when they can go free?” [ Star Pulse] Keep reading »

An Open Letter To American Idol

Dear Randy, Paula, and Simon,
Seriously, how dumb are you guys to give up on Josiah Leming, a guy who actually writes his own (amazing) songs, sings Mika’s “Grace Kelly” as an audition song, has the adorable look that teens (and, um, women) will go crazy for, and has a voice that channels some of the most popular bands making money today? And you actually let through that kid with the hair-band highlights? Out. Of. Touch.
Love,
The Frisky

Our First Crush On An American Idol Contestant

I may be an American Idol addict (not to mention prone to having crushes on wussy musicians) but I rarely develop a “thing” for any of the contestants — I was never a Claymate, nor did last season’s Chris Richardson have a shot at usurping my love for Justin Timberlake. But this season, that trend may change. Meet Josiah Leming. He lives in his car! (Don’t worry, he likes it that way.) He travels from state to state, playing small bars and music halls, singing his own songs and playing the guitar. He’s barely legal, but that didn’t stop my heart from melting the second he got in front of the judges — though he’s from the South, he’s got an vaguely English twang in his voice when he sings, and is clearly influenced by cool Brit bands like Snow Patrol. We’ve often thought that AI would benefit from trying to find the next indie singer-songwriter and Josiah may be it! And by the way, if he gets tired of living in that car, I’ve got a guest bedroom he can shack up in anytime! [You Tube]

UPDATE: Catherine is officially in love. She’s watched the video twice now. Keep reading »

Star Couplings: Spencer Pratt Directs Heidi Montag In The Video Of The Year

  • Check out the “making of” Heidi Montag’s first video for her single “Higher”. The video was directed by beau Spencer Pratt and it’s so crappy that we know it must be love if they’re still together after the humiliation of this joint collaboration! [DListed]
  • American Idol runner-up Katherine McPhee married her boyfriend this weekend in a ceremony attended by other Idol alums. FYI, her new husband is 19 years older than she is. Creepy? [Us Weekly]
  • Angelina Jolie was honored for her work in A Mighty Heart at the Santa Barbara Film Festival this week and reporters were strictly told not to ask about a possible pregnancy. Yay! It must be true! [Us Weekly]

    Sex On TV: Abstinence And American Idol

    One of the contestants who made it through on last night’s episode of American Idol, was this lil’ cutie, Amy Catherine Flynn…”Amy Catherine, AC, whatevs!” Yeah. So, in addition to being a high school student, a member of the dance team, and having an great voice, Flynn also preaches abstinence. She gave her schpiel to the judges and Simon was, like, totally sold. How about you? [You Tube] Keep reading »

    American Idol Introduces Us To Father/Son Purity Pledges

    American Idol always gives us plenty of hysterical tidbits and this year has been no different. First there’s Alexis Cohen, the 23-year old glitter covered Grace Slick fan from Pennsylvania who sounded like an old Jewish grandmother; then there’s the Simon-obsessed Renaldo Lapuz who wrote a rather catchy diddy called “I Am Your Brother”; and, lastly, there’s this guy — Bruce Dickson. Bruce is a virgin, has never kissed a girl, and is not planning to until he gets married! In fact, he and his Dad each wear one part of a purity necklace, shaped like a heart and a key. When Bruce meets that one lucky lady (who’d better be as pure as he is!), Bruce’s daddy is going to give her his necklace so that now, Bruce will have the key to her heart. So, on one hand we’re majorly creeped out — we’ve never heard of fathers and sons making purity pledges! Isn’t that kind of pervy and gay? But on the flip side, it is totally nice that the completely misogynistic and sexist traditional of father’s guarding the purity of their daughters might be on its way to becoming co-ed.
