Who can turn that frown upside down?

Fantasia can!

I had a rough day at work, but I arrived home, powered up my computer to read the internet before bed, and came across two 'Tasia related bits that made me veryvery happy.

1) Her ridiculously amazing new album cover.



2) Her fantasically awesome new video for her soon-to-be hit single, "Hood Boy."



Now I didn't care for this song the first few times I heard it, but when I saw Fantasia with THAT hair...well...I reconsidered.

And now, I'm in love.

How do you spell lame idiot?

T-A-Y-L-O-R H-I-C-K-S!

Apparently he's done with the Idol.



And after listening to his latest batch of new songs, I'm done with him.

Ruben hates sausage parties

Taking a page from the Carrie Underwood playbook, Ruben Studdard has come out as a vegetarian in US Weekly.

veggierubenplease

Are you there Ruben? It's me, judge jru.

I've got something to tell you...

Even though it's very impressive that you lost a whole bunch o' weight...you will never be named the world's sexiest vegetarian.

It may be a disappointing to hear this bit of info right now, but have faith that you'll get past it...just go eat away your sorrows at Burger King. I hear they sell a Veggie Burger there that is "off the chain."

I won't eat your lies!

Under normal circumstances, I would probably post THIS STORY and call McPhee some terrible name...like McWhore.

But considering the fact that I just saw McPhee and her significantly older boyfriend looking very couple-y together last weekend...I find news of this new coupling extremely doubtful...



Frankly, I'm betting that this whole story is just a pack of McLies.

Best. Rap. Lyric. Ever?

Giving Thanks

Since today is a day of giving "thanks," I thought I'd share some things I'm thankful for...

1. The ludicrous genius of the Kelly Ripa vs. Rosie (plus/minus Clay) controversy.





2. The existence of Kelly Clarkson.



3. The time when DeNoNo met Carly Patterson.



4. B-A-B-Y M-A-M-A



5. Carrie Underwood's AMA performance outfit on GFY.





6. The best blog ever, FourFour (for giving me the inspiration to give "thanks").

The Best Thing That Ever Happened

As my "faithful" reader know, I love the Clarkson. I love her more than I should. I love everything about her. In fact, I didn't think it was possible to love her more.

And then THIS happens...



That's the Clarkson with Mike Watt.

As in THE Mike Watt (aka: one of the coolest bass players that ever lived).

("judge jru's desperate attempt to seem hip" side note: In my non-Idol related hours, I'd like to think that I have relatively cool CD collection. And that collection includes a fIREHOSE album and two Mike Watt solo albums.)




And not only is the Clarkson willing to pose for a picture with Mike Watt...SANS makeup...she is also having him "lay down some tracks" on her new album.

For reals.

And now...you'll have to excuse me...I've gotta go clean up this mess in my pants.



JUDGE JRU'S HIPSTER BONUS SECTION:


In case you're curious why I'm SO excited, take a listen to this...


Pretty hip, eh?

Claygate -- Cont'd Cont'd

Best Celebrity/Idol duo ever?

Claygate -- Cont'd

Kelly Ripa is Homophobe???



Really Rosie?



REALLY???


And before I go, I have more thing I need to say...to Sherry Shepherd (the woman who is not Joy or Elisabeth)...


Dear Sherry Shepherd,

I think I love you.

I want to have 1000 of your babies.

xoxo,
judge jru

Clay Aiken is an Inappropriate Bitch



Even Kelly Ripa thinks it's true!



When a woman prefers the hands of Regis to yours...well, you've got a problem.

Homo Alert : Dreamgirls Edition

Apparently, I'm not the only homo who is obsessed by that "Dreamgirls" movie...

Towleroad saw it and loved it.



And Oprah agrees that it "defines what sensational is."

Who's That Gurl?

So yesterday, I stopped by the infamous Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf on Fairfax & Sunset to pick up my verygay favorite drink (Black Forrest Ice Blended, No Sugar Added, No Whipped Cream).

On my way into the store, I passed by this skinny overly made-up girl that I knew was "somebody," but I just wasn't sure which "somebody" she was.

BUT then, I saw him...this older semi-cute gentleman...



I saw him smile at his girlfriend (the skinny overly made-up girl standing outside, holding a teeny tiny chihuahua)...which meant that...the girl's name was...



...Katharine McPhee.

The Scales Never Die

The cast of the FIFTH season of VH1's hit celebreality weight loss series has just been announced.

The cast is a veritable who's who of celebrity wannabes and has-beens (i.e.: Tiffany, Maureen McCormack, Ross "The Itern", Dustin Diamond)...AND the Idol 2's very own Kimberley Locke.

Is it wrong that it makes me sad that my Kimberley has been reduced to playing second fiddle to ANT???

Gurl...you know it's true!

Look who's transcendent now?



That's my J-Hud!!!

Apologies

I might have had the worst week known to mankind this past week (car got totalled, flight got cancelled, etc.)...hence the lack of posts.

I don't know if G-d hates me right now, but instead of taking the time to look inwards...I'm blaming everything on this beotch...



Her lameness
just hurts my insides.

And my outsides.

Thursday, November 09, 2006

Is it so wrong...

...that I'm ever-so-slightly excited by the idea of watching Kellie Pickler in a craptacular FOX sitcom each and every week?

OK.

Fine.

Something is wrong with me.

Send help.

My Boy is Back!

My favorite Swedish Idol runner-up is back y'all! With a brand new single and video!



And it's called "Perfect."

Ofcourseitis.

Now as you may or...let's be honest...you probably don't remember this dude that I blogged about over a year ago, so here's a little refresher course:
  • His name is Darin.
  • He is of Kurdish descent.
  • He came in second on "Swedish Idol 2004."
  • He released a couple of songs that have been in continuous rotation on the "workout" mix on my iPod.
And now...he's ready to take the next step with this little ditty about a lady friend of his who is..."perfect."




OK...so maybe this song isn't one of Darin's best, but even so...a mediocre Darin single is still better than almost anything the boys of American Idol have released.

AND as an added bonus for my faithful readers, I've decided to include a couple of my favorite cheesetastic Darin tracks for you to enjoy.



Hope you like 'em!

I know I have.

"Celebrity" Duets : Idol Edition

My homey Mandel just alerted me to the fact that the one and only Jennifer Hudson is featured on a hot new album...by a hot artist...



Oh...



Wait...

The "hot" album is entitled "Bat Out of Hell 3 - The Monster Is Loose" and the "hot" artist is this guy...



But you know what?



The whole thing is still wicked awesome.


And it's a thousand times better than this disastrophe...
