You’ve Gotta Hand It to Clive Davis…

American Idol, Kelly Clarkson

Clive Davis is the Devil

… when he’s pissed at one of his stable of stars, he does his best to completely wreck their careers.

I don’t blame Kelly Clarkson one bit. I’d be pissed off too if some senile old codger wanted me to cover a Lindsay Lohan song. Who wants that girl’s leftovers? But I guess I’m still surprised by the level of unprofessional behavior Davis has stooped to in order to savage Kelly Clarkson’s latest album, due out at the end of this month.

I mean, it was “leaked” that he wasn’t happy with the album and wanted to scrap it. It was “leaked” that he offered her $10 million to scrap five of the songs and let him replace them with the same formulaic crap that’s already on the radio. And then the deliberate dis on the American Idol Finale?

Now her summer tour is on hold and being “reconfigured” due to low ticket sales. What a vindictive shit he is that he would sabotage someone just to prove he’s right. Why not let the album come out and sink or swim on it’s own?

Looking for Proof of an American Idol Conspiracy?

by in Friday, May 25th, 2007.
American Idol, Kelly Clarkson, Blake Lewis

Blake Lewis

 

It may not be the “Jordan was picked from the beginning” bit that’s going around the Intarwebs, but if you aren’t quite sure who Mr. Fuller, Mr. Lythgoe & Mr. Davis wanted to win, an interview Blake gave to Entertainment Weekly may have the real story.

Pretty much everyone except for hormonal pre-teens agree that the song that won the contest and was the “Idol” song sucked monkey balls. I mean, seriously… This Is My Now? More like “Let me blow chow.” It was bland, insipid, schmaltzy, and I don’t think a single person believed Jordin’s “emotion” in the final measures. It was obvious that Blake hated it as much as we all did by his delivery, but for those wondering why he didn’t give it the old Blake treatment to at least try to make it interesting?

They wouldn’t let him change the arrangement.

I Thought That Whole Family Was Too Relaxed…

by in Wednesday, April 25th, 2007.
Drugs, American Idol

Shyamali Malakar

This week it’s Popbytes who has kindly read The Enquirer so I don’t have to, and this week is a DOOZY, I tell you. Skipping over Angelina’s alleged deadly disease and more blah blah-ing about Alec Baldwin’s voice mail, we have a wonderful story about how the family who grows weed together travels to Hollywood together.

Yes, apparently the Malakar family (or at least the mom) was running a happy little pot farm, with more than one location! When the cops showed up at the first place, they found Sanjaya’s sister, Shyamali, the erstwhile Hooters girl and Idol reject and a whole mess of marijuana plants. Mom, it turns out, was at another location, which is where they busted her after her daughter gave her up. Sanjaya apparently played it off like he lived with his aunt to stay near friends, but in reality, he stayed there while mom was in jail.

But still… your own daughter rats you out!

Didn’t They Say They WEREN’T Dating?

by in Tuesday, April 24th, 2007.
Carrie Underwood, American Idol

Carrie Underwood

Honey, I’m tired of this story, too.

It seems like only yesterday Carrie Underwood and Tony Romo said they weren’t dating. Actually, it was in December, when Romo said they were, then it was blown off after their on-field “hug.”. Of course, now, apparently, they are. It’s hard enough to keep up with who’s sleeping with whom and all, but it would help if people could pick a relationship status and either change it daily or keep it constant. Because I lose enough brain cells just KNOWING who these people are without having to try to remember whether they said they WERE or WERE NOT dating back when we cared (Romo). Win a Super Bowl and then we’ll talk.

At any rate, reps say they aren’t “boyfriend/girlfriend” are are in the “beginning.” Beginning of WHAT? Beginning would seem to be back when they were FIRST linked. Not four months LATER.

And I Thought It Was a Game from My Living Room…

by in Friday, March 30th, 2007.
American Idol, Simon Cowell
52580720.jpg

Celebitchy is the proud owner of The Enquirer I never read today, and quotes from an article in which Randy Jones from the faboo 70s stars The Village People calls American Idol’s Simon Cowell a raging queen. He claims his gaydar goes off every time he watches the show (Randy Jones’ gaydar, that is), and he isn’t sure why Simon doesn’t just come out of the closet since it’s no longer a liability in Hollywood, or so he claims.

Gwen and I Should Go Bowling Together

Gwen Stefani, American Idol
gwen-stefani-19.jpg

In case anyone wonders, my blogging her on Juicy Rumors is pretty much my own true self. I was born to blog about celebrity trainwrecks, because I just have no tact.

Based on tonight’s American Idol, it appears that Gwen Stefani may also be born to be a celebrity blogger. or at least go bowling with me to trash everyone else. The messed-up theme for tonight was “anything Gwen, anything No Doubt, or pretty much any other pop song if you can’t yodel.” Now I liked pretty much everything Gwen’s ever done up until this last album, which just lost me.

American Idol Crying Girl Revealed

TV, American Idol
sanjaya.jpg

You know, I sob hysterically when watching Sanjaya Malakar sing, too, but that’s mainly from the psychic pain involved in wondering why on earth Americans keep voting for him.

However, one little girl in the audience put even my loud “Why? Why?” wailing to shame, and Defamer points us to the LA Times, who discovered the identity of the blubbering wonder.

One More American Idol Item

by in Sunday, March 11th, 2007.
American Idol, Simon Cowell
simon-cowell_200x260.jpg

Simon Cowell has claimed he leave American Idol if surprise Top 12 finalist Sanjaya Malakar were to win, saying “He’s not going to win. I won’t be back if he does!”

Never one to mince words about how sucky some of the contestants are, you’d think he’d learn by now that comments like that are only going to encourage the sympathy vote. Although if Sanjaya lasts one more week, I’m going to be leaving the show myself.

What Do Rosie O’Donnell and Antonella Barba Have in Common?

by in Tuesday, March 6th, 2007.
Rosie O'Donnell, American Idol, Antonella Barba
bracket_frenchie.jpg

Absolutely nothing. But that didn’t stop Rosie from using the controversy to get another mention on the People web site for her comments about the American Idol controversy.

The problem with this entry is that I totally agree with her. Well, not so much about the racist part so much as the glaringly obvious fact that American Idol ditched Frenchie Davis back in Season Two because a fat girl was going to blow the competition out of the water and Antonella Barba gets to stay even after we’ve seen almost all of her because, well, guys hope she’ll blow THEM.

Why I Love Simon Cowell

American Idol, Simon Cowell
simoncowell.jpg

I’m a long-time American Idol fan, and the main reason is Simon Cowell. It’s so refreshing to see someone telling people like it is instead of blowing sunshine up their asses; you really hope that even if some of these folks do go on to be rich and famous, they still have that little voice recording of Cowell cutting them down that keeps them from buying into the whole Hollyweird system.

At any rate, Simon recently had some comments about the Britneys et. al. with their whining and moaning and rehabbing:
