Does fame help in picking the big game? The predictions are in…

Kris Allen, singer ( American Idol): “Packers. Not only because I’m a huge Packers fan, but I think their combination of offense and defense is unstoppable now.”

Lee DeWyze, singer ( American Idol): “Steelers will win because they have Super Bowl experience. It will be a close game. The Packers have a great offense, but the Steelers’ defense is amazing.”

That’s been the reaction from most “American Idol” fans so far this season to the loss of judge Simon Cowell.

Despite the controversy surrounding the addition of Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez to the judges’ panel, joining original judge Randy Jackson, the show’s ratings have been holding up nicely three weeks into the season.

How Gleeky Were These Stars Before ‘Glee’?

We know, we know. It’s hard to believe the ‘Glee’ cast was ever anything more than a bunch of singing, dancing, cavity-inducing kids. Or in Sue Sylvester’s case, a cringe- and quote-worthy tyrant. But they all had lives and gigs before they became award-winning household names — however weird and embarrassing they may have been. Hollywood Life recently reported Cory Monteith was a Wal-Mart greeter before his big break. You know who else had a sucky part-time job in a department store? Finn Hudson. Which got us thinking — how similar are the actors to their ‘Glee’-ful alter-egos?

We did some digging, and rated the best pre-’Glee’ careers against their characters. See how the stars match up after the jump.

Justin Beiber Makes the Church Lady Hot (SNL Clip)

    Happy Super Bowl Sunday to you too, MJ. Sorta wish Kelly was involved in the festivites. After all, it is her hometown, and it’s Idol’s 10th anniversary. Oh well, she got to sing at the hometown World Series.

    I’m conflicted regarding the Super Bowl. I went to college in Milwaukee, so I’ll always have a soft spot for the Packers. But my husband and his family are from outside Pittsburgh, and they are diehatd Steeler fans.

    My response? Who Dey! The hopeless Bengals fan in my wins every time.

    My team is the Packers, and yes, I’m hoping they win. I’d pick any team over one that is lead by a serial rapist. Steelers’ QB should be sharing a cell with OJ.

  • Tess

    I’d pick any team over one that is lead by a serial rapist.

    I must have missed something or not kept up with the latest news, ’cause I hadn’t heard that a trial had been held and that he had been convicted by a jury of his peers.

  • Elliegrll

    I must have missed something or not kept up with the latest news, ’cause I hadn’t heard that a trial had been held and that he had been convicted by a jury of his peers.

    Because of the actions of one police officer, a trial couldn’t be held, because there wasn’t any evidence. That doesn’t mean that Ben is guilty, but it does make it hard to overlook the fact that he is free, not because a jury acquitted him, but because a police officer gave him special treatment because of his celebrity status.

  • apal123

    Koshka
    The facts are as follows. The Steelers QB has twice been accused of sexual assault. Niether case went to trail because the women were being trashed and didn’t feel comfortable going on to court. The NFL suspended him for 6 games(later reduced to 4) and made him go through some personality assessment counciling. He did lose some millions for not playing. I would guess this is the story referred to.

  • jammasta

    I’m kinda conflicted.

    For one, there was that DAMN ANNOYING PACKERS FAN who auditioned for American Idol, she made me want the Steelers to win. And, for some reason, although I do like Katie Stevens, she makes me want to root for the Steelers.

    On the other hand, there are people rooting for Steelers just because of some Wiz Khalifa song. That annoys the hell out of me. Also, the Steelers have Ben Roethlisberger and he’s pretty much the most hated person there for extremely good reason.

    I like seeing annoying people writhe in anger.

    …..Go Packers then. BUT DAMMIT 49ERS IF YOU DON’T GET BETTER ANY TIME SOON I MIGHT GO THERE AND KNOCK SOME SENSE INTO YOUR HEADS.

  • girlygirl

    Sorry MJ — lifelong Philadelphia Eagles fan, so it’s against my sports fan code to root for the Steelers — even if Roethlisberger wasn’t an alleged rapist and a douche.

    Besides that Danny and Kris are HUGE Packer fans. Are any Idols Steeler fans?

    So, in conclusion — GO PACK GO! :)

    (and please Kris, write some amazing songs while you’re here in L.A. I promise not to stalk you :D )

    I do think it is presumptuous that because Adam is seen with a male it must mean that there is something going on. Really? Straight men can hang out but if you are a gay man and happen to hang out with a male friend that automatically means they are an item? Stereotypical at all?

    A straight male can hang out with another man and not be proclaimed an item because…he is a straight male. If a straight male was hanging out with a woman, the gender that they are attracted to, there would be lots of speculation. This happens all the time.

    On another topic I was out looking at the upcoming radio adds on FMQB. I noticed that Bigtime Rush has the same song “Boyfried” going for adds in two formats featuring two different artists.

    2/15 Mainstream
    Big Time Rush f/Snoop Dogg “Boyfriend” (Columbia)
    2/15 Rhythm/Crossover
    Big Time Rush f/New Boyz “Boyfriend” (Columbia)

    Would they be considered the same song or counted differently? Does this happen often?

    I don’t know why Jive is giving Ciara another single this is probably her 4th off her album whose opening sales were less than Crystal’s. She also has had two music videos.

    I love Adam’s reply to all the speculation. Unfortunately, it comes with the territory of being a celeb. I do agree that if some single straight celeb starting hanging out with some woman, the paps and gossip columnists would like speculate about that relationship, as well. Gossip is gossip — doesn’t really care about sexual orientation.

    Huddle huddle break! :)

  • Mel1

    Los Angeles has to be the craziest place for stars to live. Do the paparazzi stake out every restaurant and club stars go to?

    There are so many celebs and clubs/bars/restaurants and other places, that the paps can’t be everywhere. There are some celeb hot spots, but generally they have an extensive network of spotters/informers — the first spotters are usually waiters. Wonder what they did before cell phones?

    We should expect to see a lot of Kris via the paps next week. He has to eat and will probably have some fun in the evenings.

    Yes. In the vast majority of paparazzi footage, either the stars are hitting places that the paparazzi are actively known to attend, or they’re going to call them ahead of time to make sure they get some pictures. It’s a mostly arranged business, despite the protests of various stars of one kind or another. Good for the business of both parties.

    Eh, it’s not spread that thin. Mind you, some are of the “call ahead” type, so that’s often how they get outside the obvious spots. But the major hangouts tend to be pretty well covered.

  • pineappletree

    Celebs either go to places that paps camp out at or they tip off the paps of where they are going. If they want to hide and not get their photo taken they can. You also have the celebs that have paps teams that follow them exclusively like say Britney.

    David Cook tweets, “Going twitter silent for the next week. Work, work, work. But i’ll be back next weekend. Have a great week everyone!”

    ***

    Dropping off the app for a week? That’s extreme. David manages to live and work in LA, and still keep a relatively low profile – so this sounds serious.

    Well, my fingers are lightly crossed, because a week is a long time to twist your digits – that David is shepherding DCTR2 to NYC this week, for final mixing and mastering. If this is close to possible, then the next tweet may come from “overlooking Times Square” – with a Big Grin – like last time. X

    Hope he gets to see this sports thing before he dives into “work” – it’s a Big Deal thing, I understand – I don’t follow – but I usually find a website to look at the expensive ‘concept’ commercials – and who Idol features – they can be very entertaining.

  • tinawina

    So, Adam is calling the paps himself. Those paps must get lots of calls every day from celebs living and travelling to LA.

    I’m pretty sure no one said all that. LOL

    Its not a bad thing. If you want to stay in the news cycle and you live in LA, it is fairly common to go to dinner at a hot spot or call ahead for a reservation, enabling the tipping off. It’s good business frankly. Especially if you want to be a glamorous pop star, you need to keep your name circulating. Image is everything. It would just make him a smart businessman looking out for his career.

    I expect he’ll slow down on this stuff after the Grammys, when he start recording full swing.

    Celebrities who don’t want to be seen generally aren’t. People know where to go if you want your privacy protected.

  • Elliegrll

    So, Adam is calling the paps himself. Those paps must get lots of calls every day from celebs living and travelling to LA.

    It’s usually the PR person who calls the photographers. And that doesn’t apply directly to Adam, all PR people do it, especially for their clients who are actors. It’s important to be seen in the trendy places, and to just be seen period, since people have short attention spans. Also, like someone said earlier, there are just some spots in LA where the paps are going to be, and celebrities go there because they want to be seen. Again, that doesn’t apply directly to Adam, it’s just how things normally work.

    She’s probably fine. She has lost the weight doing hardcore workout routines. She’s also running and says that she’s physically (and mentally) stronger than before. She’s a tiny young woman though and the weight loss is definitely noticeable, especially compared to how she was on Idol.

    Well, she’s growing up and it was bound to happen at some point, the hair color thing at least. It’s not like I know her personally or anything, I’m just going by what she says in interviews and tweets but it seems like she’s eating well and just taking better care of herself physically. I sure hope so.

    I do agree that she does not look like the Allison from Idol anymore, which may very well be what she wants. Who knows.

    I think Allison looks really healthy. She’s living on her own now, right??

    Yes she is, she’s been living on her own since she turned 18. I think she looks fit & healthy too.

  • Incipit

    She just looks like a completely different person with the weight loss and hair change

    I think she looks great, like a person who intends to be taken seriously, and there may be hope for some music that takes her talent seriously as well, this time. Hers was the voice and performances I liked in her season, regardless of the confusing nonsense the judges spewed. Then that album came out and all the edge was gone. I’ll be interested to hear what happens next.

    If the print or online media don’t think they can get hits from your picture you could hit all the celebrity places in town and it wouldn’t matter one iota, no one would bother to take your picture or get a soundbite. In order to have the papparazzi even interested you have to be interesting to the consumer.

  • http://www.twilightslo.com Mateja

    I will try to watch SB for a bit before I go to bed. I know nothing about American football, so this should be interesting.

  • CanadianFan

    Personally I don’t care if it was Sauli phoning the paps from Finland, the waiters from the restaurant, or Adam’s people, as long as someone is intelligent enough to get Adam’s picture out there. He looks gorgeous.

  • SpenserJ

    Well…I’ve got the serial rapist and you’ve got the convicted dog killer. Got to love the NFL! Heh.

    LOL – just a few hours ago, Mr. Spens asked me “if the building was burning down, and you could only save one, who would you pick, the dog killer or Rapistburger?” My answer: “Sorry Ben, I’m not a fan of sexual predators, so it’s Michael’s lucky day!” :).

    I’m a bitter Jets fan, and I grew up on the Eastern side of PA, where we’re genetically engineered to believe that the Western PA sports teams are inferior to ours. So, Go Pack Go!

    Also, I’ve eaten at Rick Baylis’s restaurant. Trust me people – believe the hype. That food was divine.

  • koshka

    I heard a bit ago that Conan mentioned that he could pretty much go anywhere in NYC and not be bothered. He was surprised how the paps hounded him in LA.

    LA is just fishbowl. Access to entertainment news in LA almost trumps state and federal news.

  • smeggingnuts

    I think she looks great, like a person who intends to be taken seriously,

    ITA, she is maturing in her style and her personality without losing the quirkyness that her fans love. I think she looks beautiful.

  • abbysee

    Allison the Raven Haired Rocker, looks incredible. Took me a couple of weeks to get use to it, but she’s beautiful either way to me. Love her. Adam looks extremely hot lately. Love how happy he seems in that pap video. Camera loves the guy.

    Not rooting for anyone in the superbowl. Could care less about Simon as well. That might change, but for now, Simon who? Just as I type this a promo for idol with my new boyfriend comes on the tube. Steven Tyler trumps Simon Cowell. Proof? My kids are watching and talking about idol again. They love the new judges!

    Allison looks great … very healthy and fit.

    I’ve noticed that Americans equate ‘thin’ and ‘exercising’ with ‘healthy’. They’re not necessarily the same, as anyone close to someone with a disease order will be able to testify. Allison never looked overweight or unhealthy to me. But I guess standards there are different.

  • Valentin432

    Didn’t like the way Christina sang the NA at all.

  • aa618892

    Christina Aguilera sounded great but did she mess up the lyrics a little or was it just me?

  • pineappletree

    Xtina sounded horrible. Why do people think all the unnecessary runs equal better? It’s overkill. Yes she messed up the lyrics.

  • PRMari

    I’m not an American, I’m latina and when I say she’s healthy and that she’s exercising it’s not just because of how she looks but because of what she and others around her have said about her exercise regime and the way she’s taking care of herself lately. I don’t think she was ever overweight, she just weighted more than she does now. She looked fine before, she looks fine now, just different.

  • LK10

    Eyeswideshut- I have to agree. I am still worried about Alison. Thin can be from an eating disorder. There are so many pressures on these young stars and too many of them end up with major issues. I hope everyone here is right.

  • http://www.twilightslo.com Mateja

    So I’m watching SB and I don’t get it. First they try to kill each other, then if they are lucky to get through they run to the other side of the field and then they do it all over again?!

    How do they score?

  • lorismile

    Xtina sounded horrible. Why do people think all the unnecessary runs equal better? It’s overkill. Yes she messed up the lyrics.

    I only heard the end and thought she sounded awesome. I missed her screwing up but I’m sure MJ will have it up. :-)

  • http://www.twilightslo.com Mateja

    The only similarity to real football I can see is when one of the players kicks the ball across the field. Bot mostly this sport reminds me of wrestling and boxing.

  • koshka

    LOL me too. I’m sticking with the puppy bowl on Animal PLanet.. but I’m disappointed this year because it appears that they replaced the cheerleading kittens with chickens. *boo hiss* ;)

    I think Allison looks fine. Its hard to tell from photos.

  • http://www.twilightslo.com Mateja

    So, that was a touchdown for Packers? They scored?

  • pineappletree

    Mateja are you comparing American football to football aka soccer?

  • girlygirl

    Mateja

    Yup…and they just got another TD off that interception return. 14-0! :)

  • http://www.twilightslo.com Mateja

    It looks like Packers are winning this thing?

  • PRMari

    Should that even be called a ball? It’s not round haha. I don’t get Football either.

  • Joyed

    How do they score?

    There are a couple different ways including a field goal (3 pts) but the most common is a touchdown, where you go all the way across the field into the endzone of the other team and cross the line to score a touchdown (6 pts) then you kick for the extra point (1 pt).

    The biggest thing to keep in mind is that the team with the ball gets to advance down the field. They are given 4 plays (or “downs”) to go at least 10 yds with the ball. If they go 10 yds, it resets to first down, and they continue the play and keep trying to move at least 10 yds in order to get close enough to score a touchdown. If they don’t move forward 10 yds or the other team intercepts the ball, the other team takes possession of the ball and gets to move down the field.

    Happy Superbowl everybody!:)

  • pineappletree

    I am confused. Are some people thinking football in soccer terms? I know there is a lot of international fans that post here. American football is way different than soccer.

    They can also score with a safety which is tackling the person on offense with the ball in their own endzone.

  • http://www.twilightslo.com Mateja

    Why are some players on both teams fat? Ahh, injuries. No wonder why.

  • girlygirl

    Mateja

    yes, the Packers are winning 14-0. There is a lot more scoring in American football than in “football” a.k.a. soccer. You can kick the ball through the uprights (field goal — worth 3 pts), tackle the offensive player in his own end zone (safety – 2 pts) or — most commonly — an offensive or defensive player takes the ball into the opposing team’s end zone (TD – 6 pts). After a TD, the team that scores attempts an extra point, by either kicking the ball through the uprights (1 pt) or throwing or running the ball into the endzone (2-pt conversion).

    the offensive team is given 4 downs to advance 10 yards. Every time they do this, they are given a new set of 4 downs until they either (A) fail to go 10 yds (in 3 downs — 99% of the time they kick the ball away on 4th down, although the offensive team can go for it on 4th down), (B) turn the ball over (fumble, interception), or (C) score

  • Joyed

    Why are some players on both teams fat? Ahh, injuries. No wonder why.

    lol, actually, that probably means they play defense – a position that demands great size because they need to physically block and tackle opponents. Players on offense tend to be trimmer because they need to be able to run fast:)

  • girlygirl

    Mateja

    The larger (or “fat”) players are the offensive and defensive linemen. They are bigger because they are the ones that do most of the blocking (on offense) and/or try to get away from the blockers to try and get to the player with the ball (defense)

  • girlygirl

    If you saw that last play, that was a field goal — so the Steelers get 3 points

  • http://www.twilightslo.com Mateja

    Uhh, they wrestle and run in all possible directions so fast I can’t even register what’s going on!

    But soccer (football) is usually way more exciting. :(

  • girlygirl

    nvm

  • http://www.twilightslo.com Mateja

    So, if you can kick the ball across the field well, you score 3 PT?

    But if they try to get across the field the other way, they can get 7?

    Ehh, this one still rules:

    So many players are limping to the locker rooms. Sadz.

    I’m a faithful reader of trashy mags (US, Star, OK etc) when I get my nails done but I don’t think I’ve seen a picture of Adam in awhile.

    Adam was in the worst dressed in this week’s Star for the poncho ;) The tag line was something about Fred Flinstone. LOL

  • girlygirl

    oh god this halftime show is horrible. The Black Eyed Peas need to just…go away, already.

  • MRM

    I agree, I am over the Black Eyed Peas. First thing I thought when Slash came out was ………..Oh please don’t go there, but it happened and I will never get that moment back. Wow that was bad!! Adam would have killed it – just saying… :)

  • Elliegrll

    I like the Black Eyed Peas. They always put on an amazing visual show. Tonight, the sound engineer was just horrible, he should never be allowed to work a major event again.

    I missed Simon’s commercial too however, my eyes were misting over on the Chrysler’s Detroit commercial. Wow, I miss Detroit! I really hope something amazing happens for a city as awesome as Detroit. You have amazing theaters, restaurants and sporting events that will blow you away. Detroit used to have shopping and musical events worthy of the richie rich. I met BB king at a Blues and Jazz fest that changed my life. That commercial was amazing for me. I hope that expensive spot will pay off, because I am rooting for that city, and for my middle way of life.

    Yeah I asked my husband why he was now watching idol again & he said because Steve Tyler is entertaining!!

    I am confused. Are some people thinking football in soccer terms? I know there is a lot of international fans that post here. American football is way different than soccer.

    I won’t even go into the other versions of football- Australian Rules ,Rugby Union & Rugby league. All 5 versions- including American F & soccer are played here in Australia but AFL is the only national game!!

  • Keel

    According to this article (http://wesclark.com/rrr/yank_fb.html), American football was a combination of rugby and soccer:

    At a time when field goals made by drop-kicks vastly outscored touchdowns, the game looked like a mongrel of European soccer and English Rugby. Of course, the American “frontier” version was far more rugged than its more dignified European counterparts. Although in the American version aggressive defenses doled out uppercuts and roundhouse punches before and after the ball was snapped, football was nonetheless considered a “gentleman’s Adventure in sport.”

  • standtotheright

    I’ve noticed that Americans equate ‘thin’ and ‘exercising’ with ‘healthy’. They’re not necessarily the same, as anyone close to someone with a disease order will be able to testify. Allison never looked overweight or unhealthy to me. But I guess standards there are different.

    I don’t think she looked overweight either, but I don’t think she looks unhealthy or at a risk for eating disorders now. Muscle burns more calories than fat when a body is at rest and becomes a ready source of glycogen for the body when one isn’t consuming enough calories through food. So people (especially women) who aren’t getting the nutrition they need have a hard time maintaining muscle tone. If one looks at her arms, she’s developed a decent amount of muscle tone along with losing inches, so it seems like her weight loss is consistent with exercising and sensible eating.

    I think her weight was in a healthy range the whole time, because it is a range, but I don’t see any evidence that the changes she’s made have been unhealthful ones.

  • Truthiness

    This former Cheesehead is very happy tonight (well barely yesterday for me). yay! I’m sure Kris Allen and Danny Gokey also agree with me on this one :) Sorry, Steeler fans. But it was a good game.

  • Moria Polonius

    Like some people, I’m showing up to comment on how gorgeous Allison looks. Completely grown up and sophisticated, although I hope she returns to some sort of crazy hair some day, I liked that bit of whackiness about her looks.

    I don’t think there’s grounds to worry about eating disorders. While I agree that pressure in the showbiz to be thin is high, and the pressure to conform to those standards is why Allison chose to lose weight, she doesn’t look TOO thin. Just right, slender and healthy. Young girls don’t usually have too much trouble losing weight, especially if it’s only a little. Healthy diet and some exercise and voila, a cinched waist it is.

    Other than that, looks like Adam and paps are entering a symbiotic relationship. I think it’s usually pretty clear when he’s fine with being photographed and when he’s not. As Adam once said, he had witnessed fame for years so he knows how that game is played. Keep the fans somewhat interested, Adam, in the quiet months, and you’ll be fine.
