Last night, Jennifer Lopez sat down for an interview with Jay Leno and he asked her about her first dance gig. “I got a job working as a back-up dancer for New Kids on the Block,” she said. “It was dancing for them on the American Music Awards and it was a big deal.

Being Beautiful Is Jennifer Lopez’s Job

“The thing is, [being beautiful] is part of my job … I don’t want anybody thinking it’s easy. It does take time and it’s hard work. HDTV wide-screen is nobody’s friend!”

Jennifer Lopez on being named People‘s “World’s Most Beautiful Woman.” Her job sounds exhausting. Her regime includes grueling workouts, a strict diet, and regular trips to the esthetician. It must be hard to live a spontaneous life that way. I’d rather wear my pajamas and blog all day for my paycheck, thank you very much. But then again, HDTV and I have never tried to be friends.

Lauren Alaina May Be Your Next “American Idol”


Last night, “American Idol” unveiled its first real frontrunner, Lauren Alaina. The 15-year-old Georgia native was inspired to sing by her cousin Holly, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor three years ago. (Heartbreaking story alert!) Lauren, who was described a “beyondo cute” by Steven Tyler (who also may have been referring to her when he said the judges found “the one”), first sang Faith Hill’s “Like We Never Loved At All,” which made judge Jennifer Lopez cry. Then Lauren sang her favorite song, Aerosmith’s “Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing” (convenient!), pointing at Steven Tyler to join in. The judges were clearly enamored with her and while I think she has a very good voice, I don’t know, I didn’t find her to be particularly special or different. PopDust also points out that Lauren suffers from an affliction faced by many an “American Idol” hopeful — the insistence on smiling through the entirety of an audition, “to ingratiate [themselves] with the judges,” even if the lyrics to the song they are singing are downright depressing. It’s annoying, but maybe no one else cares. [PopDust] Keep reading »

“American Idol” Plays Nice, Turns On The Waterworks


Last night’s “American Idol” sure was a tearjerker, huh? While the first episode of “Idol” on Wednesday had a bunch of standout bad auditions, last night’s most memorable performances were all good. First up, my new spirit animal, Brett Loewenstern, a 16-year-old ginger hippie freak from Florida, who I loved instantly, even before hearing him sing, because of his look and his story. Maura over at Popdust writes in her recap of the show, “Brett’s whole audition arc, which felt like a prologue to an It Gets Better video, made it obvious that the show is taking an anti-bullying cue from its Fox sibling ‘Glee.’ … That ‘Be Nice’ would be more of an unofficial show motto in the absence of Simon Cowell was a given, but the idea that ‘American Idol,’ which has trafficked in raking in ratings for ridiculing the oddballs during its first nine seasons, would embrace the outcasts is definitely a sea change for the show’s overall tone.” Keep reading »
