Why’s it confusing, you ask? Because I’m not sure if girlfriend’s trying to rip off Courtney Love‘s style, or if she just wants to look like Christina Ricci. In either case, she’s not pulling it off well, because in order to be Courtney, I’d recommend some smears on that carefully-applied lipstick, some baby barrettes, and maybe a handful of lesions thrown in for good measure. If, on the other hand, she’s trying more for Christina, she needs to shrink about three feet, because girl is tall (trivia: Katharine McPhee is a statuesque 5’8″, whereas Christina Ricci is a mere 5’1″).
This is what Katharine wore during the recent TCA press conference in Los Angeles, where she talked about her new show, ‘Smash’, and oh my God do I hate it. No really—I actually pretty much hate it. Katharine McPhee is a beautiful girl who can generally do no wrong (when it comes to looking beautiful; I’m not going to touch the subject of her acting with a ten-foot pole), but this entire getup is so, so wrong on so, so many levels.
Katharine McPhee’s onesie/dress thing—love it or leave it?

Remember when Katharine McPhee was just a gawky American Idol contestant who had a pretty decent singing voice and you couldn’t figure out whether you liked her or you didn’t care either way?
I mean, you could say kind of the same thing about Carrie Underwood except, of course, Carrie Underwood’s kind of a superstar, and Katharine McPhee is here at a reception for Expedition Blue Planet’s “A Night With Alexandra Cousteau,” raving about her shoes, which are Steve Madden. I guess I can’t wig too much; it’s a huge step forward that McPhee’s no longer blonde and has gone back to her roots of brunette — no pun intended.
So yeah. You’ve come a long way from “Black Horse and a Cherry Tree,” girl. But you really need to keep your lips zipped over this whole Steve Madden thing if you ever want to work in this town again.

The American Idol also-ran is back with a new album called Unbroken, due out in January, and here’s the video for the first single, “Had It All.” I have to admit, I’ve always been a Kat McPhee fan, and this is no exception. I like this single, and I absolutely love her voice. I also actually kind of like the video — even the short, platinum, last-decade haircut. It looks like she went through one of the Tyra Banks ANTM makeovers, but it works somehow. Your thoughts?

I don’t know if I’d call American Idolloser Katharine McPhee a celebrity, but I guess she still garners some level of media attention. And like all washed-up has-beens, she’s doing infomercials. McPhee plugs a great anti-pap device.

I was just sitting in the shower the other day thinking about celebrities, because that’s what I do in the shower, and I shower like five times a day, which is probably why I have so many thoughts about celebrities. Anyway, my shower thought was “Does Katharine McPhee have a sustainable career?” I couldn’t come up with a clear answer, but obviously someone still cares about her. Katharine was swarmed by paps the other day — and she wisely kept mum as they drilled her with questions about same-sex marriage — and was saved by what I think is a homeless woman, who grabbed her by the arm and pushed her through a door and then cussed out the paps. Sweet. I want one of these ladies to take everywhere with me. And when someone annoys me I’ll just be like, “Ahem. I think my homeless lady has something she wants to say to you.”

A skinny-minny Kat McPhee narrowly avoids an upskirt at a post-Grammy party in LA.
Her arms look fantastic!
I wonder if her waaaay older husband was there with her. There is no way that marriage is going to last.
