If you want to hit on Kelly Clarkson, go for it but she isn't gay. Kelly truly doesn't care. Except for one pesky little problem. It's ruining her game with guys. "The rumors are not helping me on the dating front," she says. "I prefer the boys. I'm extremely flattered when I do get hit on by girls, and I think it's hot but I'm not into it. I like boys." Her dating life isn't the only thing she's had to defend. She's also had to put up with a ton of scrutiny throughout the years for her fluctuating weight. In Hollywood where "too thin" seems to wrongly be the norm, Kelly spoke out on that too. Despite the naysayers who think she needs to drop a few pounds, Kelly loves every last pound on her frame. "I love my body," she said. "I'm very much OK with it. I don't think artists are ever the ones who have the problem with their weight. It is other people."
After such a horrible year for Jennifer Hudson and her family, it's so nice to report that the former American Idol contestant finally has a reason to celebrate. According to the Chicago Tribune, Jennifer and her fiance, former Flavor of Love contestant turned aspiring wrestler, David Otunga, are expecting their first child. Jennifer's longtime family friend Felicia Fields says a baby shower was held over the weekend in Jennifer's hometown of Chicago describing it as a "quiet gathering of friends and mostly family."
A week after losing the eighth-season American Idol title to Arkansan Kris Allen, Adam Lambert is proud of his work on the show. "It's a really, really cool thing," he told People, "to be able to show people that you can be yourself, and you should be proud of yourself, and you should own who you are and what you're about, and never make apologies for it." In the past week, Adam performed with the surviving members of Queen, who hope to speak to him about joining the band as lead singer, made an appearance at the Broadway musical Hair, and been the target of a catty attack from fellow AI runn
Darrell's facial expression, upon realizing that the 38-year-old both out sang and out stripped her, was priceless. Good thing because the Idol castoff is probably down to her last penny after having mid-season boob job. "I was going to ask what's new," Ryan Seacrest said when Darrell took the stage, "but I think I know."
American Idol has been the highest rated show on TV since its debut eight seasons ago, and ever since, the show's most talked about judges, Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul, have had some sort of "relationship." They have bickered like an old married couple, laughed together, pinched each other, kissed one another, teased, prodded, fought and finally loved.
It looks like Kelly Clarkson is making the rounds while promoting her new album All I Ever Wanted. In addition to mentioning that she has never been in love, the pop star also mentions that she'd like to remain childless. The original American Idol champion seems a little more interesting today than she did yesterday. And the kids really seem to dig "My Life Would Suck Without You."
Joanna Pacitti, the disqualified Idol, and Mark Ballas, the DWTS pro with a soon-to-be-released album, have announced that they're an item. Is this love, or just another publicity stunt?
As judge DioGuardi discovered, as a woman, it's hard to criticize another good-looking woman without seeming jealous or vengeful. In DioGuardi's defense, she was trying to keep the judges' decisions from focusing on Darrell's hot bod instead of her mediocre voice. But, really, why shouldn't regular folks be a little bit angry at the beautiful people of the world? Studies show that things—like jobs and free cab rides—come easier to those with good looks. Men, in particular, can't help falling for physical beauty, but a great set of eyes or abs are not lost on ladies, either. (Did Obama's good looks help him get elected?)
David Cook is officially single. The American Idol Season 7 winner had been dating Kimberly Caldwell since almost before he defeated the pint-sized hurricane David Archuleta. But that's over. What can we expect from David Cook in the future? No one knows. But we do know that he won't be dating new judge Kara DioGuardi because she engaged to a dude named Mike McCuddy.
