Harry Styles is in need of an icon, apparently. I guess he grew up looking up to David Beckham but now David’s getting a bit worse for wear in the icon department, apparently (says the boy band member who will be forgotten in 10 years time) and he needs someone new to come on the scene.
From OK Magazine:
“I think he was everybody’s idol when I was growing up. When people asked you that question, you almost needed a back-up answer because everyone would say, ‘David Beckham!’”
“We actually met once when we were performing in LA. He brought his kids to our concert. He’s a really nice guy.”
So, Harry’s really not meaning to offend David Beckham, he just feels like his own idol should be someone more creative. I don’t really get why it matters if a person inspires more than one other, but I guess I sorta kinda get what he’s saying?
Anyway, Harry also thinks David needs to be knighted:
“I think he really deserves it. It makes sense because he’s such a national treasure. To be honest, I already thought he was Sir David Beckham anyway!”

Oh dear! Britney Spears‘ Las Vegas residency hasn’t even begun yet and already things are getting a bit crazy. Apparently BritBrit was rehearsing recently and somehow managed to injure herself, nearly breaking her neck. The incident was covered in her upcoming E! documentary, I Am Britney Jean, in which she says the following:
“I just knew I had almost broke my neck. There was serious damage.”
If that sounds vague, well, that’s because it is. It’s all part of building the suspense and to try and get more people to tune in than have bought her album, which may be a feat. I suppose I’d be interested in seeing what all goes into preparing for one of these big shows. Either way, glad she’s doing okay – some of the stuff they do in those shows can be really dangerous and even the most careful people can get hurt because of it.
Will you be watching?

How do I put this gently? American Idol sucks ass. It has for years and it continues to get worse. Last year, even with Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey on the panel, the show was boring, uncomfortable and deserved to be canceled. Fox hoped that by bringing back Jennifer Lopez for this season, they can pick up in the ratings again, but seriously, people – just let this shit die already. Oh yeah, Harry Connick Jr.‘s on it, too.
Well, the troll that guards the Idol bridge, Ryan Seacrest, really wants you to give the show another shot to, I dunno, be good?
From The Hollywood Reporter:
“I will say this to those who have watched the show throughout the years and maybe they didn’t watch last year. I ask them to come back and give it another shot this year,” Seacrest told The Hollywood Reporter Friday on the red carpet at the Z100 Jingle Ball 2013 concert at Madison Square Garden. “The judges are so fun, and they are having such a good time and they get along with each other so well that I think you will see your old American Idol back on the air.”
Well… no, I don’t think so. Even X Factor is shit. I think people are just tired of seeing the same old crap on TV all the time. It’s a fixed “competition” wherein the producers decide pretty early on who they want to win. They give the public the illusion of “voting” for their favourites, but we all know if an unpopular contestant – one that they deem unworthy – came out on top, those votes would be fixed. They prey on people with sob stories and it’s all just a mess. Idol has been on for like, 10 years now. It’s done. Say goodbye. Bow out with some small amount of grace.
That being said, I’ll be watching in January… but not because I enjoy it, because I have to live blog it for another job. It’s the bane of my existence.

There aren’t many stars out there who could put out an album, unannounced and out of nowhere, and still have it hit number one on the charts. And yet, that’s what Beyoncé‘s self-titled record, put overnight on Friday the 13th, is set to do. Early sales figures showed that the album sold 550,000 copies in the US alone in just three days. Oh snap!
Beyonce’s surprise self-titled album is all but guaranteed a No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 chart this week. Industry sources suggest its sales have grown to over 550,000 in the U.S. through Saturday (14) night. The album may sell 600,000 by the end of the tracking week on Sunday, Dec. 15.
“Beyonce’s” expected debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, along with its official Nielsen SoundScan sales figure (through the end of the tracking week on Dec. 15), will be revealed mid-week.
I’m gonna be honest: you guys know I went off Beyoncé a couple of months back, not for any real reason but the fact that she kinda annoyed me by spamming my Instgram feed with her millions of photos of like, fans holding banners, which she titled “#my work”. I’m not sure why that grated on me, but it did. However, I’m back on the Beyoncé train full steam ahead after this album. It’s so trashy in places, so NOT radio friendly… and really, really fucking good. It’s gonna have girls wearing neon lipstick and applying for gym memberships in record numbers, seriously.
