I guess this story is aimed specifically for y’all teenyboppers. That’s the only demographic that strongly cares about both American Idol and Twilight, right? Well, you guys are welcome.
So Paul McDonald? Impossibly adorable. He got eliminated this week, which was a tragic moment in my household, but it’s ok, because he’s got other things to do, like work on a new album and bang Nikki Reed, the lady who plays beautiful, bitchy Rosalie in the Twilight movies. Here’s Paul’s characteristically charming statement about it:
“Yeah, well me and Nikki Reed are dating. It’s officially true. She’s super cool, man, she’s super smart, really cool girl. I’m happy about it. We’ve been hanging out, here and there, you know we’re both pretty busy, but it’s been fun so far.”
And here’s another statement where Paul describes how happy Nikki is that he got eliminated:
“She is actually pumped,” he said. “She said, ‘Dude, you finally get to do your thing and be yourself and be the artist you are.’ She is happy about the whole situation. She has been nothing but cool to me.”
I’m really excited about this couple, can you tell? It hits on two things that I’m ashamed to be so in love with, which is a really special feeling. And you guys, I’ve got to confess – I’ve been falling hard for Paul McDonald for the past couple days. I mean, he’s no Casey Abrams, but he’s wonderful. I just got his band’s album (The Grand Magnolias, check it out if you’re hipster enough), and it’s crazy good. If you don’t pull any other glee out of this story, at least check out The Grand Magnolias and let them touch your heart, ok?
