I’m telling you. When these washed-up R&B stars of yesteryear get salty, they get downright Lowry’s Seasoned.
Before Candice Glover won American Idol (::praisehands::) she did a duet of “Inseperable” with Jennifer Hudson. Natalie Cole recorded it nearly 40 years ago and she is not here for J-Hud singing her song.
He broke down at a concert last week to say he was taking a break from music to do a traditional, two-year mission with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. You can watch the video from TMZ…
…but really all you need to know is he’s putting his singing career on hold “not because somebody told me that I was supposed to do it, not because that I no longer want to do music anymore, but it’s because it’s the feeling that I felt that I need to do next in my life.”
I’m not saying it has anything to do with the fact that he got dropped from his record label, his last album sold seven copies, and he has nothing better to do right now. Nah, I’m not gonna say that. But what is a Mormon mission anyway?
Again….I do not watch Idol. Forreal. But it’s kind of this massive pop-culture juggernaut that you can’t avoid if you have any interest in entertainment gossip. The TV in our apartment happened to be on Fox the night of this epic collision of bad hair and good vocals. I remember looking up from the kitchen and going in mad hard on that awful nest on top of homegirl’s head…but then she hit the chorus and I was done. I had goosebumps! She basically won the competition that night. Everybody should’ve just gone on home. I mean, what do you do after some pretty blonde girl puts a Heart classic to bed? Shoo-ba-doo-ba-doop just won’t cut it after that.
I don’t watch Idol. I have no desire to watch overblown singers massacre my favorite hits with bad arrangements and little musicality. But I love the auditions! So much hilarity and LOLishness. Every once in awhile, if I have absolutely nothing to do, I’ll flip to Fox and see what kind of tragedy is being displayed that day.
I missed Lauren Alaina’s audition, but my cousin posted it on Facebook. This is actually the only clip—audition or actual show—that I saw from the entire last season. But she won me over. I mean, how cute is she! Fifteen years old and asking 3 superstars if she can bring her family in because she’s the last audition of the day? Love her.
