‘X Factor,’ in effort to revamp the show and boost ratings, cleaned house earlier this year, firing half the judging panel and its host. Names like Beyonce and Mariah Carey were tossed around as possible replacements (and for huge sums of money), and now another female big gun is a frontrunner: Britney Spears. Word is Brit was offered a cool $10 million for a slot on the show.
On tonight’s (March 7) episode of ‘American Idol,’ the Top 13 were asked to perform songs by Whitney Houston and Stevie Wonder. The girls performed Houston’s hits, while the boys tackled Wonder’s work.
Forget voicing the role of Smurfette in ‘The Smurfs’ movie, like she did last year. Colorful pop starlet Katy Perry will star in her own damn movie of the 3D sort, a la Justin Bieber. Why? Because KP in two dimensions just isn’t enough.
Lady Gaga launched her Born This Way Foundation with her mother Cynthia Germanotta (pictured above -isn’t she cute?) at Harvard today (Feb. 29.) Dressed in a chocolate brown, sleeveless dress and a shimmery net hat, Gaga livestreamed the press conference, where she discussed the foundations aims, goals and benefits for the youth.
Katy Perry is the cover star for the March issue of Interview and the mag has shared the striking image. Lots of early chatter about the shot claims that it barely looks like Perry, but we agree and disagree with that assertion.
A slew of sexy, black and white photos of Lady Gaga before she was famous (and not of the “She was young and needed the money” sort) have surfaced online. It’s safe to see that these photos mark the genesis of Stefani Germanotta transforming into her Gaga alter ego. Here, long, dark brown locks tumble down her back and she’s much less descript with her natural hair hue. Once she embraced blonde ambition, she stood out more. But one thing has not changed during the transition from Stefani to Gaga, as evidenced by the photos: her love of heels!
The 42-contestant herd on ‘American Idol‘ is being thinned out to 24: 12 girls, 12 guys. The final 24 will perform for the first time at the live shows next week. Can you believe we are already at the live shows, ‘Idol’ watchers?
Move over, M.I.A. You’re not the only one who can give a one-finger salute at a major music event. Fresh off the aforementioned rapper’s bird-flipping incident during the 2012 Super Bowl Halftime, British diva Adele did the same at the BRIT Awards this evening (Feb. 21.) But while M.I.A.’s gesture seemed immature, out of place and a foolish attempt to grab a headline, Adele was merely reacting to being cut off when making her acceptance speech.
The coaches are eager to fill their teams with the required 12 singers, so spots filled up on Week 3 of the Blind Auditions of Season 2 of ‘The Voice.’ We see them still encouraging each other to push the button for singers they think are right for the other, with Christina Aguilera often encouraging Adam Levine and Cee Lo to push their giant buzzers, while Blake Shelton muses about contestants being good-looking.
Whitney Houston‘s three-hour funeral was aired on CNN and streamed online today (Feb. 18). While pop divas like Mariah Carey and Mary J. Blige were in attendance and the likes of Alicia Keys, R. Kelly and Stevie Wonder performed, it was still a traditional Baptist worship service at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, N.J., where Houston was born.
At the beginning of the ceremony, the priest said, “We gonna have church today,” and that’s just what they had while celebrating the singer’s life and her immovable faith.
Lady Gaga tweeted that she is shooting her perfume campaign this weekend, posting: “Looking forward to this weekend. Shooting my parfum campaign and commercial with Steven Klein. Will be edited to a special song.” We already know the campaign ads will be visual spectacles, since this is Gaga we’re talking about. We can’t wait until she leaks photos from the big shoot. But the billion dollar question remains: What will her signature scent smell like? Turns out it will have notes of “expensive hooker” in the recipe.
Much is made about the fact that Adele is a singer as opposed to a pop star. She doesn’t want the trappings of pop stardom or desire to be waif thin. She isn’t interested creating a gimmick. It’s all about her voice and her songs.
But that doesn’t mean that she can’t or doesn’t enjoy dressing up in priceless couture for the cover of the March 2012 issue of Vogue.
