Paula Gets A Lil’ Confused On American Idol

Last night’s American Idol was fun, and not because the final five all sang songs by the king of karaoke, Neil Diamond. No, last night was fun because it featured the return of crazy, confused Paula Abdul. I’ve missed her this season!

Andrew Lloyd Weber Bats His Eyelashes At An American Idol

Last night’s episode of American Idol was almost a disappointment — Andrew Lloyd Weber was the mentor and for a while there it looked like no one was going to sing “Jesus Christ, Superstar”. If you’re following our Twitter, you know we were bitching about this fact last night, until Carly finally strutted…

Star Couplings: Ashlee Simpson Unconfirmed Pregnancy Already For Sale

Ashlee Simpson told Ryan Seacrest she is keeping Pete Wentz’s proposal “sacred” and then played coy about whether or not she’s knocked up. Meanwhile, Papa Joe is already trying to sell the first photo rights to her baby to the magazines. But no one is biting! [NY Post and People]

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…

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…

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]

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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 Jaso…

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…

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 channel…

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,…

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]

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…

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…
