Paula Abdul Blabs On – American Idol

paula-abdul.jpg

When Paula Abdul gets going when judging the contestants on American Idol, there’s absolutely no stopping her. The petite judge had a lot to say about the two songs that Jason Castro sung on the talent show on Tuesday night. It’s just too bad that he hadn’t gotten to perform his second song before Paula started judging him on it. Paula was in rare form that night as she blabbed on about Jason’s second song after only performing once. Simon, Randy and Ryan all tried to help Paula along but to no avail. She already dug her grave on that one.

Bon Jovi Bombs

Bon Jovi Bombs

Fans at the Bank Atlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida were evacuated from Bon Jovi’s concert this past Saturday night due to a bomb threat. Don’t worry – everyone and their mothers are completely fine. Several bomb-sniffing dogs were sent in to inspect the area after police received a phone call that threatened to blow up the arena with two bombs was received. After police determined that it was all a hoax, fans were let back into the arena at 9:30 to enjoy the show. And if it just happened that any concert-goers were from Fort Lauderdale, they might have been able to catch Richie Sambora play at a condominium too.

Metallica Does Radiohead

Metallica drummer Lars Ullrich has hinted that they’re thinking of doing what Radiohead popularized by giving away their material online for free. The famed drummer told Rolling Stone magazine that “We’re looking at how we can embrace everything. We want to be as free players as possible. We’ve been observing Radiohead and Trent Reznor (of Nine Inch Nails) and in 27 years or however long it takes for the next record, we’ll be looking forward to everything in terms of possibilities with the internet.” Considering their highly public with Napster, this is one shocking move. I’m sure those Napster people are having a really good laugh at this.

Bullet Proof Rapper

Naughty by Nature member, Treach, was given a ticket for driving with a suspended license after he was pulled over for driving the wrong way on a one-way street. The rapper was busted on Tuesday after police were called to the area because of a report that shots were fired. What’s the connection? Treach was wearing a bullet proof vest when he got popped. While he was pulled over in “the immediate area of the shooting incident” Newark PD isn’t pointing any fingers on him as they think that Treach is only “a potential witness at this time”. Here’s a tidbit – it’s not a crime to wear a bullet proof vest in New Jersey unless it’s worn during illegal activity.

Snoop in the UK

Snoop Dogg may soon be allowed to head into the UK. The British government’s decision to ban the legally troubled rapper has just been overturned by an immigration appeals judge. How much trouble does a guy doing soap operas these days pose anyway? The overturning of the decision was due to the fact that it may not be Snoop who’s to blame for the trouble that led to his ban from the country. After reviewing tapes of the brawl that Snoop allegedly sparked at Heathrow airport, the judge ruled that the brawl was “precipitated by decisions made by British Airways staff and police.” The footage even shows that Snoop was pushed twice by an officer but never retaliated. The government agency trying to keep Snoop out of the country has until Wednesday to decide whether to appeal.

50 Cent Blasts Alicia Keys

50 Cent Blasts Alicia Keys

50 Cent is on the warpath yet again, but this time, he’s not after the likes of Ja Rule or Kanye West. The rapper is blasting Alicia Keys for her comments in Blender magazine that “Gangsta rap was a ploy to convince black people to kill each other.” 50 responds to that comment by saying “I don’t like people who don’t like me… that statement changes my perception of Alicia Keys totally. It’s just not really a bright comment.” For her part, Alicia has said that her comments to the magazine were taken out of context. I think she just got scared of all the rappers that may come after her.

Kanye’s New Tour

Kanye West recently kicked off his new ‘Glow in the Dark’ tour and the first review is in! He not only took it to another level, he took it all the way to outer space. Actually, the Seattle Times reviewer says that “He not only took the concert experience to a new level, he took it to a new planet.” Okay. I’m officially jealous of whoever has caught the show and of whoever is holding tickets to see a show. I want to see it too! Is anyone holding on to an extra ticket and looking for a date? I’m free!

Conned by Akon

We have been duped by marketing once again kiddies! The Smoking Gun has unearthed police, court and corrections records that prove that multi-platinum selling musician Akon has been blowing a lot of smoke up our butts. There has been no conviction and he wasn’t locked up between 1999 and 2002. They say that Akon “’created a fictionalized back story that serves as the narrative anchor for his recorded tales of isolation, violence, woe, and regret. Akon has overdubbed his biography with the kind of grit and menace that he apparently believes music consumers desire from their hip-hop stars.” The Smoking Gun also expresses shock that the media failed to look into Akon’s claim before he got huge.

Madonna $25m for two gigs

Madonna is to sign the most lucrative contracts of her career – playing two gigs in Dubai for $25MILLION.

The Queen Of Pop is finalising negotiations on a deal to finish her forthcoming world tour in the oil-rich Arab state in November. By my calculations, if one of the gigs – for which she will get $15million – runs to 90 minutes she will pocket a staggering $170.000 a minute.

That’s a pretty impressive pay day by any standards.

And if that wasn’t enough, she is also in talks to perform at a private party for a mystery punter while she is out there which will earn her another $10million.

Sources claim: “Madonna is about to break another record by playing the most lucrative concert of her whole career – or anyone’s career for that matter...
