The lavishly guylinered American Idol finalist Adam Lambert introduced a fellow as his boyfriend at a dinner with other Idol contestants at Outback Steakhouse in Burbank last Saturday night, the New York Daily News reports. According to Perez Hilton, Adam's gentleman friend is named Drake.
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.
Alexandra Burke won X-Factor (an American Idol - like show in the UK). While filming the talent show, she talked a big, old game about how much she dug Chris Brown. And now that she's famous, someone is preventing her from meeting Chris Brown. We hope his best bud Rihanna figures out who it is and asks him (or her) to knock it off.
It seems as if Ryan Seacrest's show Mamma's Boy may have been borne from a very personal place. His mom, Connie Seacrest, wants the American Idol host to find a nice girl to settle down with. But she has very strong opinions about what the girl will be like. Hmm.
American Idol master Simon Cowell has suffered a breakup from lady friend Terri Seymour. Rumor has it that she broke up with him via text message after he purchased a new home for her (it's like Clue!). Now he's off women, generally feeling sorry for himself and fishing for compliments. How the smug have fallen.
Jennifer Hudson recently got engaged to reality star David Otunga. You my recognize him from I Love New York 2. Good times but a little out-of-line of the Hollywood food chain. Additionally, rumor has it that Alicia Keys has been too close with Swizz Beatz for his estranged wife's liking.
