The Tiger Woods scandal has gotten pretty out of hand (I know! I know! I am a part of the problem! This is the last mention of Tiger today unless something completely amazing breaks), and lots of people out there are questioning their spouses faith in light of the news that even the most seemingly boring dude in the world was caught having fourteen mistresses. Last night former American Idol contestant Kris Allen told TMZ that his wife Katy has been “all over him” ever since she read up on Tiger.
I barely even trust my own dog, so I can imagine that this story is being brought up a lot between couples out there. TMZ is calling it “Tiger Woods Syndrome” and I think for once, they are pretty accurate. It’s not as if we didn’t know before that people cheated on each other, but now we’re all reminded that even “the nice guy” could be banging chicks from reality shows condomless behind their wife’s back. Kind of scary, right?
Seriously, dude? The American Idol winner’s album comes out today, and so he’s running around MTV studios talking about how he dislikes the cover of Kanye’s “Heartless” he put on the album, and it’s all the producer’s fault. The album version (and the interview) is above. I quite like this version, to be honest. I almost like it better than Kanye’s version. But whatever, I’m just waiting patiently for Adam Lambert’s album to come out.
American Idol winner Kris Allen performed at Seton High School in Ohio to recognize their accomplishment of raising $5,000 for breast cancer research. He did an unplugged, acoustical version of Britney’s “Baby One More Time”. Here’s the question: Who did it better?
While I do feel Kris Allen is an incredibly talented young man, and I do respect him for that, Adam Lambert is a one-of-a-kind artist, and clearly head and shoulders above Kris’s John Mayer impersonation.
There’s a lot of talk right now about whether or not this has to do with Adam being gay. Eight seasons in and we still haven’t had a gay American Idol. (Well, except for Kelly Clarkson, but I think she’s still a few years away from coming out of the closet.) Personally, I don’t think it’s about Adam being gay, per se; I think it’s about American teenagers wanting a cookie-cutter performance from a cookie-cutter talent, like Danny Gokey or Kris Allen.
I, for one, will be buying Adam’s AMAZING album when it comes out, and Allison’s. You can keep the rest of ‘em.
(Oh, and seriously, if you didn’t want spoilers, get off the Internet.)
What’s up with this? Despite all the buzz around Adam Lambert, yesterday’s performance finale of American Idol drew the lowest ratings ever for a finale of the series. Granted, the “lowest ratings ever” still involve 23.7 million people, but what’s the deal with this?
Everyone already knew Adam was going to win by a landslide. It wasn’t an exciting, tight race to tune in for. I like Kris, I do, but he doesn’t stand a chance against Adam, who’s been unstoppable since day one. You could totally tell in the judge’s final remarks; they were all like “You’ve done a great job, Kris. You should be really proud of yourself.” Like the way I talk to my chihuahua when he and my neighbor’s golden retriever race for a ball up on my deck. “Good job, Leo! You ran really fast after that ball! You’ve got a lot of spirit, boy!” Meanwhile, the golden retriever’s clear on the other side of the deck with the ball hanging out of his mouth, while my dog’s still staring at me, waiting for me to finish what I’m saying before he prances five feet away and begins sunbathing.
Oh, and Kara’s single? SUUUUUUUUUUUUCKS. I think the word “mountain” should be banned from song lyrics. President Obama?
That’s what Extra is reporting. They say it’s a “rumor,” but since the “rumor” comes from FOX, they’re thinking that there might be a grain of truth to it. The Idol producers haven’t confirmed anything — although Lionel Richie, Carlos Santana, Cyndi Lauper, Queen Latifah, Black Eyed Peas, Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood and David Cook are all confirmed for the big show.
Who do you guys think will win? Is Adam Lambert a shoe-in? I like Kris Allen just fine, but you guys know I loooooove me some Adam!!!
Last week, a glitch in the Apple software allowed fans a glimpse at which contestants are selling the most “Idol” downloads — studio versions of the contestants’ live performances — on iTunes each week.
iTunes sales figures have long been kept secret at the insistence of “Idol” producers, who were concerned that sales figures might give away the relative rankings in the popular votes …
Not suprisingly, the leader — by far — is front-runner Adam Lambert, who holds six of the top 10 spots in the Idol chart this season. The haunting “Mad World”– the song that got Simon Cowell on his feet for a rare standing ovation — is the No. 1-selling song so far this year, the iTunes site showed.
But right behind Lambert is Allen, who has three performance downloads on the secret chart. Gokey has just one, his version of “Endless Love” at No. 9. Allen’s slow version of “Falling Slowly” from movie night is No. 3. His bluesy update on the classic “Ain’t No Sunshine” is No. 8 and his tender “To Make You Feel My Love” took the No. 10 spot.
Of COURSE my precious Adam is number one, but I’ve long been bored by Danny Gokey. I think he’s a great guy with a great voice, but week after week I find myself checking my Twitter account during his performances — I’m just not interested. Kris, on the other hand, is slowly starting to worm his way into my heart. I loved him last week, and I finally started to see why he was still around. I also looooove Allison Iraheta, but I know she probably won’t win this thing — which is probably better in the long run for her career, anyway.
What I find the most interesting?
Is that Idol ‘scandal’ stories always seem to break the same day the show’s scheduled to air.
