    Oh Mimi! Mariah Carey On American Idol

    So, as we mentioned yesterday, Mariah Carey was the guest artist on this week’s American Idol and by and large, the contestants didn’t butcher her songs. Everyone we expected to be safe, was, and that annoying little horseback rider Kristy Lee Cook was sent packing. But the most exciting moment of the night was when Mariah performed! Loving her new album, E=MC2, which came out yesterday. Mimi is also on the cover of the new Us Weekly discussing how she lost 20lbs and is down to the same size she was in 1991. That kind of upsets us, as Mariah was too skinny back then and we all know she was in a miserable marriage with Tommy Matolla. Don’t get too thin, girl, you need to have enough to weight to push out those high notes. Keep reading »

    God, We Love That Dirty Little Hippie Jason Castro

    David Archuleta and his fake sheepishness is annoying and David Cook and his hair and the judge-worship he inspires makes us wanna barf, but goodness that lil’ dreadlocked, puka-shell wearing hottie Jason Castro makes our loins sing. Last night the American Idol contestants had to sing Mariah Carey songs, which should be tough for everyone, especially the boys. But it wasn’t tough for Jason, who broke out his guitar and strummed his way through a luau-inspired version of “I Don’t Want To Cry”. He is honestly making me reconsider my position on white-ish people with dreads. Swear to God. [American Idol] Keep reading »

    Star Couplings: Faith Hill Must Be Pregnant Because Who Would Wear THAT?

  • Does the fact that Faith Hill wore an unflattering blousey top to the Country Music Awards mean she’s got a bun in the oven? [Perez Hilton]
  • Justin Bobby cut his hair! [Oh No They Didn't]
  • Reality Show Romance Update: American Idol‘s David Cook is dating So You Think You Can Dance runner-up, Lacey Schwimmer. She used to date her fellow cast member Hawk, who was way effing cooler than the dude with the lame hair. [Oh No They Didn't]

    Disney Shows Get Girls Interested In Bad Boys Awfully Early

    Last night I went to dinner with a friend and her adorable four-and-a-half year old daughter Eva. I was pleasantly mortified to discover that Eva and I shared the same taste in music — we’re both really into Miley Cyrus aka Hannah Montana. I swear, as I get older, my taste in music gets more juvenile. Anyway, Eva and I dished for a while about Miley, That’s So Raven, and Zach and Cody (two other shows on the Disney Channel), before her mom and I started discussing the weird values these shows start ingraining in the little ones before they’re even old enough to read. For example, Zach and Cody are twin brothers — one of them is the smart, nerdy, “good” one, while the other is wild, naughty, and a bit of a bad boy — naturally, many, many little girls are known to like the bad boy best. Isn’t it weird how pop culture tries to get you to choose between them before you’re even in puberty? Keep reading »

    Heart Rules On “American Idol Gives Back”

    Last night was American Idol‘s “Idol Gives Back” show, in which a ton of celebs show up to encourage viewers to donate money to Idol’s charity, which distributes the funds to various amazing organizations around the U.S. and in Africa. Seriously, some of the footage shot in Africa and in some of the poorest areas of the U.S. gave our tear ducts (and our checkbooks) a work out. (We also discovered an unbelievable fondness for Miley Cyrus. Weird.) But oh my god! Heart performed with Fergie and it was friggin’ awe-some. Check out the Wilson chicks belting out “Barracuda” above. Then head over to AmericanIdol.com to get the scoop on donating to their very worthwhile cause.

    The Matrimommy: Remote Control Rumble

    I never dreamed that I’d find a guy who would want to join me for weekly manicures and pedicures; that was a chick ritual best kept for me and my friend Michelle. No husbands allowed – or desired, for that matter. I always assumed, however, that the man I’d choose to spend the rest of my life with would be interested in spending cozy weeknights curled up with me on the sofa. We’d fire up the Tivo, going rock-paper-scissors over which program we’d watch first: How I Met Your Mother or Project Runway. Keep reading »

    American Idol Goes To Dollywood

    American Idol is kind of testing our patience this season, because they’re going into territory that maybe they shouldn’t — i.e. the Beatles catalog and, now, bringing on our beloved Dolly Parton as a mentor. The very thought of Kristy Lee Cook warbling her way through “Coat of Many Colors” makes us want to dig out our eardrums with a spoon. But to tell you the truth, last night’s episode, in which the top nine sang Dolly’s amazing tunes, was not so bad. Even David Cook, who got a haircut, was pretty decent in his rendition of “Little Sparrow”. Thank goodness no one attempted “Islands In The Stream”, though. In any case, Brooke White, who sang “Jolene” (above) was still our favorite, mainly because she doesn’t seem like such a poseur. Keep reading »

    American Idol Contestants Continue To Maim Our Favorite Songs

    Everyone is pissing themselves this morning over David Cook’s rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” on last night’s American Idol. Maybe it’s because I am still pissed they kicked Josiah off (but whatever, homeboy has a record contract with Warner Bros. now!), maybe it’s because “Billie Jean” was my favorite song when I was 5, or maybe it’s because I thought the judges had cotton in their ears when Ryan Seacrest said before the performance that David was doing Chris Cornell’s version of the song, but I couldn’t understand why they thought the dork was so “original”, “brave”, and “smart”. Also, I hate his hair. Not to mention Paula’s gloves. Ugh. [You Tube] Keep reading »
