Did American Idol finally change up the judges?

Even since American Idol made the move from Fox to ABC, Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke have been the judges. Would season 6 finally be the year the network tries something new? Nope, they will all be back, along with Ryan Seacrest as the host. Maybe they will get the seven-year itch?

ABC made this announcement to let us know that virtual auditions start next week for all 50 states and DC.

Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix had his cake and won’t let anyone else eat it

Today is Jacoby Shaddix’s 45th birthday, and his Papa Roach bandmates got him a birthday cake yesterday since they are on the road. They even sang happy birthday to their singer. Then he blew out the candles and smashed his head into the cake.

If that doesn’t say Rock Star, I don’t know what does!

I hope Shaddix is having the bitchingest of birthdays, and he is still not cleaning out frosting from all of his facial orifices.


Sebastian Stan is going for the Oscar with A Different Man

Sebastian Stan looks completely unrecognizable in his upcoming movie A Different Man, which is filming now. The actor plays a man with neurofibromatosis that causes tumors to grow on his body, including his face. His character will undergo facial reconstructive surgery, and he will become infatuated with the actor who is starring as him in the bioplay.

I am assuming from this one photo that he is going to get an Oscar nomination for his performance in this Indie pic. You know how the voters love someone who is willing to be covered in prosthetics and get ugly for a role like Nicole Kidman and Charlize Theron?

Like them, Stan has the chops to pull it off. I have been saying that since I saw him in Political Animals.


Sprite is going green but not being green

When you think of Sprite, you think of their green bottles. But come August 1st, that will no longer be the case. That is because the bottles are going to be clear, like the soda.

The Coca-Cola Company is making the change because it is easier to recycle the clear bottles than the colored ones.

“Taking colors out of bottles improves the quality of the recycled material,” said Julian Ochoa, CEO, R3CYCLE, which is working with Coca-Cola Consolidated to enable bottle-to-bottle recycling across the largest U.S. bottler’s 14 state-territory. “This transition will help increase availability of food-grade rPET. When recycled, clear PET Sprite bottles can be remade into bottles, helping drive a circular economy for plastic.”

I understand why they are doing it, but can someone leave something from childhood as it was? I mean, not only are they changing the color of the bottle, but they also changed up the logo.

Sprite is not the only one losing the green bottles; so are Coca-Cola’s Fresca, Seagram’s, and Mello Yello.


George R.R. Martin most likely got COVID-19 at San Diego Comic-Con
July 28th, 2022 under Coronavirus. [ Comments: none ]

George R.R. Martin decided to come out of hiding to go to San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend to promote House of the Dragon. Since we are still in a pandemic, he tried to be safe by wearing a mask at all times and only attended the panel. However, he went out to eat and took off his mask to eat.

Well, at some point between the convention and yesterday’s premiere of his newest show, the author tested positive for COVID-19. Therefore, all of his Los Angeles plans are cancelled. But, he is hoping to be better so he can go to the premiere of the first episode in Sante Fe, New Mexico.

Martin says his only symptoms are a runny nose and an occasional cough. Hopefully, it will stay that way so that he can finish the book he is working on.

I also hope that Comic-Con doesn’t turn into a super spreader event. But, I have a feeling we will be hearing soon that a lot more attendees got coronavirus.
