Oh man, consider me slayed. Positively ripped the f-ck up. You know what the best-worst part is about the whole thing? I love this song! I love it! No joke – it’s so cute! I mean, Paul McDonald is trying way to hard to sound like Dylan (obviously), but that’s kind of his thing, I guess, and there’s a lingering part of me waiting for Nikki to reach over and take a giant bite out of his carotid (suppose I’ve been watching too many Twilight movies), but I can overlook all of these things because it’s really all so wonderful, isn’t it!
These guys are going to be forever, aren’t they? I suppose they will *always* be a thing, and isn’t that actually kind of beautiful?

If you’ll recall, darling (creepy?) Paul McDonald from American Idol and Nikki Reed from them Twilight movies are very, very in love. So in love that they got engaged after two months of dating (and meeting), and now they’re getting married just four months after that! It makes the heart sing, doesn’t it?
Here are all the details that we know so far:
-Paul is going to be jamming with his band at the reception.
-Stefano from Paul’s season of American Idol will also be performing.
-Alexa Vega, the kickass girl from Spy Kids, will be Nikki’s maid of honor.
Are you guys excited for them or what?!

How are you guys feeling about that crazy little couple that could, Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald? They started dating in April, kept creeping through May, and got engaged in June. What a whirlwind romance, right? What else could these wacky lovers get into this month?
One word: tattoos.
Yes, in the vein of many a young lover, Nikki and Paul got matching tattoos to commemorate their undying love for each other. Specifically, they got each other’s names tattooed on their right ring fingers. Charming, right?
I don’t know, a lot of people don’t believe in these two, but I feel like I’ve got to. I’ve got to stand up for this love, you guys, and I’m going to keep on standing for it until one of them gently passes away in the other’s arms, years and years from now, or Nikki get screwed for skipping the prenup. Whichever comes first.

Have you guys heard the news yet? That Twilight‘s Nikki Reed and American Idol‘s Paul McDonald are ENGAGED? I mean, does this strike any of you as somewhat odd, considering they’ve been dating, what, like three weeks?
Molls said it not long ago, that Paul McDonald is kind of a creeper, and at first, I was skeptical. I thought, hell, maybe all we have here is an excitable young man who really, really digs the idea of going from being a nobody to, well, a more famous girl’s boyfriend overnight, and he’s all about hanging onto what he’s found. Maybe he ACTUALLY CARES about her. Maybe he spent way too many late nights rubbing one out to Nikki’s Twilight character and that’s why he’s got such a malnourished pallor about his face, which THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH. Just MAYBE he felt about Nikki the way that I did about Isaac Hanson when I was twelve years old, and cried every night over the vast expanse that separated us. Sometimes love knows no sanity, you guys.
However, the couple confirmed last night that Paul did, indeed, pop the question and Nikki
HAD NO OTHER CHOICE YOU HEAR ME accepted.
And if that isn’t creepy enough for you, Nikki also claims that Paul is on a Nikki Reed-songwriting campaign and has plans to release a Nikki Reed EP. ‘Cause nothing says “forever love” quite like rapt, fascinated obsession, you know?

Of course I don’t know whether or not Paul is actually a skeezy dude, but he gives me super weird vibes and I think he might be a little bit of a user. I’m not happy that Scotty took home the American Idol grand prize, but I’m just glad it wasn’t Paul. I don’t think I’d be comfortable having this dude sneak on to my radar for the next several years. At least I’m pretty sure that once Nikki comes to her senses, he’ll fade into obscurity like the rest of the Idols.

I could have told you this was going to happen! I knew just by watching him sing songs on my TV in a creepy James Taylor voice that something was NOT RIGHT about American Idol castoff Paul McDonald. You can just tell by looking at him that he gets all crazy and weird after one drink of brown liquor and that he’s kind of a shiesty dude.
I knew when I heard (through an announcement he made) that he was dating actress Nikki Reed that something was going to start going around about him using her soon. Then BAM! A story shows up about it in the Enquirer.
“Paul is pressuring Nikki to introduce him to her agents, studio executives and even her ‘Twilight’ co-stars,” said a source, according to the report.
“His own friends are predicting he’ll leave Nikki as soon as he gets his big post ‘Idol’ break, the Enquirer reported.
To be fair, I don’t think I’m Columbo for figuring this out. Everyone knows that an ex-American Idol star fresh off the show is not who you want to be dating if you’re a famous actress with bomb-ass connections.
Nikki, protect your name and Twilight money from this vampire, you know what I mean, girl?
