Lionel Richie is replaced by a Legend on Duets
April 30th, 2012 under ABC, Lionel Richie. [ Comments: none ]


Duets is less than a month away from its launch on ABC and the singing competition has lost its biggest name, Lionel Richie. ABC sent out a press release announcing today that John Legend will be joining the show and no where was The Commodores singer’s name to be seen. Why he left the show is a mystery, but I am assuming it has to do with how well his album is doing on the charts.
The show debuts on May 24th with Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Nettles, Robin Thicke and Legend. Will you be watching? I know this sounds messed up, but without Richie on the show, I will be skipping it. I like Clarkson, but not enough to watch.
Actually I am not watching because that above commercial annoys the hell out of me on iPad whenever I watch ABC shows on it. Petty, I know but that is how I feel.

UPDATE: Lionel Richie posted this explanation why he dropped out of the show, “Due to a scheduling conflict, I am unable to take part in ABC’s “Duets” show. I wish I could be two places at once!”

Lionel Richie wrote Lady in the bathroom
April 5th, 2012 under Jimmy Kimmel, Kenny Rogers, Lionel Richie. [ Comments: none ]


Lionel Richie was on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday to promote his #1 country album Tuskegee and he told the ABC late host a story about a song he wrote for one of the biggest country music stars of all time. Richie teamed with Kenny Rogers to write two songs for him and one of the songs he pitched to the bearded singer was Lady. When he pitched it, he had only a few lines ready and said if he liked it he would finish it. When the two met to record, he had another song ready and thought that would suffice. Well The Gambler wasn’t playing and was ready the complete version of Lady. Only problem is that the Commodore had only written the first verse. Well push came to shove and he ran to the bathroom and dinished one of the most romantic love songs in music history. I guess you can say not everything that comes out of the bathroom is sh!1tty.
If you want to see if the lyrics sound like something that were written over a toilet, then click here!

IOL has quote from Lionel Richie from a recent interview where he makes light of the new Hollywood trend…rehab. "I think it's a cliché to say: 'I'm going into rehab. I bumped my foot today – rehab; I hit my head on something – rehab.'" While I partially agree with him, I also think it is ironic that he is one the saying it. Considering Nicole Richie has been in rehab and well…

Nicole Richie to Lionel…All I want for Christmas is a Chauffeur!
December 22nd, 2006 under Lionel Richie, Nicole Richie. [ Comments: none ]

 

NICOLE Richie, facing jail for allegedly driving stoned the wrong way down a highway, has reached out to dad Lionel and asked for help – in the shape of a driver! The concerned crooner has asked his super-skinny 25-year-old adopted daughter how he can help after her run-in with the LAPD earlier this month. We’re told: "After his wild youth Lionel feels he doesn’t have a right to lecture. "He wanted to let Nicole know that if she needed anything like counselling, more rehab, he would be happy to help her. "Nicole confessed that the only thing she could think of that would help her right now was a chauffeur."

As someone who drove on the 134 last night, I really hope that Lionel gets her that Christmas present!
