For years we have wondered if Opposites Attract when it comes to American Idol’s Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul, and now she Straight Up answered if she was ever in love with him. The singer shared 25 Things You Don’t Know About Me to Us Weekly and #17 is, “I have never been in love with Simon Cowell.” Which is kind of a disappointment because you know their sex tape would the hottest thing ever. Could you imagine the passion she would have with that Cold Hearted Snake? It would be Crazy Cool.
Some of the most exciting things to watch on competition shows like American Idol, America’s Got Talent and The X Factor are the auditions, but that is because they are edited down. If you are there Judging them all day, I guess they can get kind of boring. At least that is what Simon Cowell admitted to Us Weekly when he revealed 25 Things You Don’t Know About Me. He said, “My pre-show ritual is breathing in oxygen through a bottle. I fall asleep sometimes because I get so bored in auditions, so I do oxygen to wake me up.” I guess there are only so many times you can hear the same song over and over and over again.
On that note, he also came clean on something I agree with him about. He said, “There were loads of times when I thought the wrong person won on American Idol.” I am guessing that he is referring to Ruben Studdard and Taylor Hicks, who else do you think he is talking about?
The 25 Things weren’t only about his shows, he also shared with Us that he likes baths, hates clowns and plans on cloning his dogs. Let’s pray that there is a clown act on America’s Got Talent this season. Not only will that keep him, it will also give him nightmares if he accidentally falls asleep.
While most people would be excited to meet Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Hans Solo or Chewbacca, not Simon Cowell. He said, “Dreams do come true,” when he met Darth Vader. That explains so much. Now we know what made Anakin Skywalker cross over to the Dark Side. He auditioned for one of Simon Cowell’s shows and the King of Mean rejected him in his own special way.
As we know actresses need to be skinny for their jobs, so that means they can’t eat the things they love like donuts. So what happens when they are on a hiatus and a there is chocolate covered one in front of her? If you are Katharine McPhee you curse it out before you gobble it down like you haven’t any food for a year! I guess that makes everything OK or maybe that is the secret how they keep their figures so slim.
I don’t know about you, but I am going to try that diet ASAP!
Remington Alexander Blackstock isn’t even two weeks old and he has already done his first photoshoot. His mother Kelly Clarkson shared some of those photos with us, and says he has “#charmfordays” and “#watchoutladies.” She ain’t kidding, he is a real cutie. Just like his older sister, River Rose.
If they get her singing ability, the Rock World is in trouble! Hey maybe American Idol will be back by then and they can win it just like their mom.
Katherine McPhee won Spike TV’s Lip Sync Battle by singing her competitor’s hit. How did she win by mouthing Jason Derulo’s Want to Want Me? Watch her move her body and you will see why. If she moved like that on American Idol, then maybe she would’ve won. But if you think about it, she has the biggest career out of anyone from her season. So technically she did win!
Yesterday on The Late Late Show, Jennifer Hudson and James Corden sang songs from the Public Domain and made them age appropriate for us.
They made Skip to My Lou something that we could skip to. Old McDonald is now a rap for our generation. London Bridges Falling Down is something we can get down to. But the last tune was by far the best. They turned Happy and You Know into a Gospel song and I felt the spirit! Did you feel it? Then clap your hands!
Simon Cowell and Terri Seymour might not have been able to make things work out between them, but looks like their kids might have a better shot at love. The Extra TV correspondent shared a photo of her daughter Coco sharing a kiss with Eric Cowell, and it’s the cutest thing you will see all day.
I know the 1 year old girl and the 2 year old boy are decades away from getting married, but at least they have the first photo for their wedding video.
I remember the magic we all felt during the first season of American Idol and watching Kelly Clarkson win it all. But as the show went on, it lost that loving feeling. So much so that this is the final season.
Now almost 15 years later, Clarkson is about to give birth as the show that made her a star is about to die. Before both of those things happen, she graced the Idol stage one last time and sang her song Piece By Piece. A song with so much emotion and heart, that not only wasn’t she able to complete the song because she broke down crying, so did several of the judges, the contestants, the audience and me. It was like that scene in The Natural when Robert Redford hit it out of the park. Instead of sparks raining down, it was tears.
This is American Idol. Too bad the current singers aren’t creating a moment like this. Maybe if they were, the show wouldn’t be ending. But it is, piece by piece.
