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.”
I was mistaken.
Here’s the video for Katharine McPhee’s cover of “I Know What Boys Like,” from the House Bunny soundtrack.
This is worse.
I mean, it just blows my mind how many exceptionally talented people are wandering around Hollywood waiting tables while videos and songs like this are getting produced by major studios. It looks like a freakin’ student film. And by “student” I mean “middle-schooler.” This is so, so awful.
I lol’d a couple of times at this brief interview that Kat McPhee did with Newsweek.
She was supposed to be talking about her new film, House Bunny, but instead the interviewer was totally unprepared and off-topic, and Kat just decided to let him look like the dumbass that he is. Here’s how most of the interview went:
You just got married and had Kellie Pickler as a bridesmaid. Why didn’t you ask Sanjaya?
Because Sanjaya wasn’t on my season. And I wasn’t very good friends with him.
Did you invite Simon and Paula?
No, I’m not that close with them. It’s not like in a bad way, but I don’t hang out with them on the weekends.
Do you get tired of people bringing up the 19-year age difference between you and your husband?
You know, not that many people bring it up.
Had you always been attracted to older men?
No. He’s the first and last old man that I’ll be attracted to.
I didn’t call him oldâ€”just older.
That’s a good way to put it.
Is anyone else a little embarrassed to admit they might see House Bunny? Between that and Beverly Hills Chihuahua, I’m just going to have to go out and buy a movie-going disguise.
The 23-year-old American Idol also-ran tied the knot with her 42-year-old boyfriend, Nick Cokas, in Beverly Hills on Saturday.
“(Nick) is the love of my life,” she said. “This is a once in a lifetime occasion and everything is just perfect.”
McPhee wore a strapless ivory Manuel Mota gown and Neil Lane jewels (diamond and platinum chandelier earrings and diamond and platinum bracelets), while Cokas wore an Armani tuxedo. Fellow season five Idol contestants Kellie Pickler and Mandisa were among the 305 guests on hand for the nuptials.
You gotta hand it to this girl — she’s been with this dude since before she got famous. Is it true love? Or is she just too young to know better?
I give it a year.
