Blake Lewis Inks Record Deal

Blake Lewis Signs Record Deal with 19 Arista

I guess it’s American Idol day. Or, you know, I guess it’s a really slow news day.

On the heels of the release of the first Jordin Sparks single, “Tattoo,” comes the news that runner-up Blake Lewis has signed a recording deal with 19 Recordings/Arista Records. His album’s due in late 2007.

“Blake has a strong music sensibility and knows who he is and what his music should represent,” says Clive Davis, who basically seems to be in the business of supporting every AmIdol contestant whose name isn’t Kelly Clarkson. “His collaborators are all knocked out by him.”

Kirsten Dunst Was Robbed

Kirsten Dunst’s SoHo Grand Hotel Room Robbed

According to the AP, a $13,000 handbag and some other items were stolen from Kirsten Dunst’s room in the SoHo Grand Hotel on August 9. She’s in NYC filming How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, and was not in the room when the robbery occurred.

They also took $2,500 in cash, credit and ID cards, two digital cameras, a cell phone and an iPod music player, court records show.

A surveillance camera in the lobby spotted them leaving.

One suspect, Jarrod Beinerman, 33, was being held on $50,000 bond after being arraigned in a Manhattan court Wednesday on burglary and grand larceny charges. He had been arrested after going to a Brooklyn court for an unrelated case Tuesday.

Beinerman’s lawyer told a judge that the surveillance camera showed his client wasn’t carrying anything in his hands when he left the SoHo Grand. The lawyer, James Kirschner, said Beinerman had heard a movie was being filmed at the hotel and “went there to check out what was going on.”

Authorities have since recovered credit cards, IDs and the cell phone.

I wanna see what was on the digital cameras!!

You’re So Cool, Constantine

Constantine Maroulis at ESPN Deportes La Revista Party

The former AmIdol contestant made an appearance at the ESPN Deportes La Revista blah blah blah blah … these are always such non-events. I have no idea what he was doing there. Especially with Anthony Fedorov.

What the hell does Constantine have to do with a Spanish sports magazine?

Isn’t he Greek?

Just because he looks like he could be Spanish doesn’t mean he had any reason to be there. Yet he was.

No One with the Last Name of Lohan Should Travel in a Car

Lindsay Lohan and Younger Sister Ali, Who Was Recently in a Car Accident in Long Island

Seriously, can we just start shipping these people where they need to go in freight trains?

It would be safer!

The latest Lohan to be involved in a traffic accident is lil’ sis Ali, age 13, who was in a car crash on Friday night after sneaking out of the family’s Long Island house to meet her 16-year-old boyfriend, who had a learner’s permit.

Two people were slightly injured in the accident, but Ali was fine, and was able to fly out to Utah this week to visit big sis Lindsay in rehab.

How long until Ali’s there, too?

I give her a year!

If the Drugs Don’t Kill Her, Amy Winehouse Can Always Rely on Her Husband to Finish the Job

Amy Winehouse Has Bruises and Cuts After Getting into a Fight with Her Husband

It’s nice to know you have things you can count on in this life.

Amy Winehouse — who can’t seem to stay in rehab any longer than Nicole Richie can stay in jailgot into a huge fight with her supportive, loving husband, Blake Civil-Fielder, in a hotel in London yesterday.

These are the follow-up pics.

According to the UK’s Daily Mail:

“Amy was in floods of tears. [Her husband] was screaming at her. She was cowering in the corner and I thought he was going to hit her. When the lift door opened, she took off across the lobby at a real pace. He was chasing after her and was about five paces behind by the time she got to the main hotel entrance.”

The couple then dashed into the street.

An eyewitness said: “Just after 3am, Amy came sprinting out and down the road. She was in a real state of panic. Blake was running after her, but couldn’t catch up. Amy was so hell-bent on getting away from him that she ran into the middle of the street and flagged down a random car that happened to be full of girls. She was saying, ‘Quickly, I have to get in, I have to get away, please help me’. Her voice was breaking, you could tell she was scared. The car drove off at speed and ended up about a mile away at Charing Cross station. Amy got out and went into a 24-hour shop to buy cigarettes. She was looking completely out of her head. Blake ran after the car for a while. He spent the next halfhour or so wandering around in a daze with blood over his face, looking in doorways for her, shouting her name out.

Eventually, he got through to her on the mobile.

There were a lot of tears and shouting, but they calmed down and met up at around 4am and slowly walked back to the hotel arm-in-arm. They got back at 4.45am.”

You know, I have to hand it to American “it” girls. They may drive the wrong way on major freeways after popping a few Vicodin, they may flash the paparazzi, they may haphazardly shave their heads, but they don’t have this seemingly British tendency to date heroin addicts who kick their asses. This is such a Kate Moss move.

For kicks, Daily Mail added a picture of Amy at the start of her fame, in 2003, before she was basically a dead man walking. I don’t even recognize this person.
