Paula + Divas Live! = ????????????

Well, the crunk sabbatical is already over…Paula Abdul, via Twitter, announced Tuesday she would be hosting the VH1’s “Divas Live!” show on September 17th…I’ve already let my displeasure be known about Miley Cyrus being included as one of the divas…however, the article I just found has mentioned Jordin Sparks will be joining the show as another diva, which is cool as hell!…so Sparks joins Kelly Clarkson, Adele, Leona Lewis, and Miley Cyrus…now one detail I’ve also discovered, is that the show will air LIVE?!?…I’m trying to remember if “Divas Las Vegas” was live…if so, whoa nelly!….

Wouldn’t it be funny if after all the rumors, Paula plays eveything totally straight for her new gig, I wouldn’t be surprised if we see a dance number, that’s all she can really do…I’m still holding out for a unscheduled appearance by Whitney Houston…hello!?! which by the way, the new Whitney songs I’ve heard thus far?…not too good…and it won’t be good if all the promotion that has gone into her big comeback appearances and album fail…after all:

Have a great day humping!


Crunk No More…


Paula Abdul is NOT coming back to AMERICAN IDOL and I don’t know whether I should cheer or cry…Paula revealed via Twitter last night her simple statement not to return…it was confirmed just last week, Kara DioGuardi, will be back…gigantic mistake!…word is Paula had asked for up to $20 million this upcoming season; she made $4 million last season…I’m sure the blow was increased with Ryan Seacrest’s new 3-year $45 million contract to continue as host…

Despite her loopy, perhaps drug-induced behavior, Paula will be missed and IDOL’s continuing decline in viewership will increase…the nice judge is gone; she had a few harsh criticisms, but for the most part she was very encouraging to all the contestants…I’ll personally miss her dancing for every single performance, not knowing her back was giving her mega pain…I’ll miss her love/hate relationship with Simon Cowell…I’ll miss her tears for the contestants who don’t quite make it…I definitely think Paula needs to establish a new identity outside of the AMERICAN IDOL monster…and she has via QVC….it’s better than nothing…


It’s up to you America!

Adam American Flag


Adam Lambert, Danny Gokey, and Kris Allen will again vie for your votes to make it into next week’s AMERICAN IDOL season 8 finale…and with this round, each contestant visits his hometown for a big pat on the back and many many rounds of applause…tonight, each contestant will sing 2 songs…one they choose, and, with every season, a song the judges choose…because after all, several contestants make the wrong song choices all season long…too bad Megan Joy!…it makes one wonder since the winner or other contestants who go on to record his/her first record will be perhaps, manipulated by producers and/or songwriters into recording what THEY think will be the right choice or the right first single…however, the contestants on IDOL are lucky to have that freedom to choose throughout the season…

Adam Lambert’s song choices have been excellent throughout, even though he may have pissed off Nashville with his Jeff Buckley-inspired rendition of “Ring of Fire” or when his version last week of Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love” made all classic rockers raise an eyebrow…hell, Slash loved it!…you can’t argue with that!…once again, the question of whether or not America is ready for its first openly gay American Idol remains to be seen…no, Adam hasn’t officially come out to any of the press, but come on!…He has made the staleness of the show fresh again by being himself, a true pop star…

I say every year, I’m not going to watch it anymore, because of the predictable audition shows, the Paula drug-induced rants, the Simon-Paula love/hate relationship, Randy’s repetitive “yos”…I’m not giving Kara any slack; she has made sense but at times has been as off the mark as Paula with some of her comments…a la “Studio 57”????…I still beg the question…”how long can this show go on?”…well, if Adam wins, it will go on and on and on….
