Steven Tyler Escapes From Idolatry

FAME isn’t all gold, honey and massage oils; it’s also the successful navigation of a steady stream of unlikely and uncomfortable situations.

At this, the first few weeks of the 10th season of “American Idol” have proved, Steven Tyler is an unalloyed genius.

The moment when Mr. Tyler, one of this season’s new judges, claimed the show as his own came during the third night of auditions. Chris Medina tried out with a muscular version of The Script’s “Breakeven” after telling the story of how his fiancée, Juliana Ramos, suffered a brain injury that left her in a wheelchair, able to move her left arm and little more.

Lea Michele’s Cosmo Controversy: “I Could See Why Parents Could Get a Little Upset,” Says Glee Costar

No doubt Lea Michele is lookin’ pretty hot on the new cover of Cosmopolitan magazine.

Even so, some conservative moms have lashed out against the Glee starlet and the magazine because they think her body-baring attire is sending the wrong message to her young fans.

But what are they saying about it over at McKinley High?

    Kris had some nice moves there in his grass skirt! Great hip action.

    Thanks for the hula video of Kris. I love to see him having fun. Great to watch!

    Rolling Stone: ‘Guitar Hero’ Dead

    “Due to continued declines in the music genre, the company will disband Activision Publishing’s Guitar Hero business unit and discontinue development on its Guitar Hero game for 2011,”

  • pineappletree

    That video of Kris is adorable. And he says he can’t dance!! I see nice hip action..lol

  • hoosiermama

    Thanks smeggingnuts for the info on Guitar Hero. I forwarded that article on to my college boys (one is in grad school studying sound design for video games–yikes!).

    Loved seeing Kris getting his groove on, Hawaiian style! :-)

  • Silent Screams

    Thank GOD that Siobhan finally got around to recording some solo songs, and is doing it with professional musicians. I was starting to lose hope in her.

    another sign that rock isn’t going great

    Rolling Stone: ‘Guitar Hero’ Dead

    That’s not about rock music per se. The “music genre” they are referring too is the music gaming genre. (there’s also another article embedded that makes it clearer). The market for Guitar Hero, DJ Hero, etc seems to be topping out, and the articles seems to say its because 1. they oversaturated the gaming market with too many updates and expansions 2. These games require expensive extra equipment like Wii guitars and Wii turntables 3. the novelty has worn off and 4. gaming in general is moving towards cheaper formats like Facebook and mobile devices.

    Not that rock isn’t declining right now (though there does seem to be a surge in to folk rock area) but its not taking down Guitar Hero yet. LOL

    I am really ready for Idol tonight! Well that’s not true. I am really ready for Hollywood tomorrow! I can’t wait to finally start getting into the meat of this thing.

  • Grammie Kari

    I think many of Siobhan’s fans were worried Silent Screams. Such a talented young woman deserves success in her career. I hope these are GOOD songs!

  • luly

    I love the video of Kris :).

    New date coming to light for Danny. Danny will be the entertainment at an April 15th charity event in the Houston area for Chuck Norris’s foundation.

    That’s sort of cool, I think. Especially after all of Danny’s twitter Chuck Norris jokes, lol ;)

    On Friday, April 15, 2011 Chuck and Gena Norris will host the annual KICKSTART KIDS Gala and Auction at River Oaks Country Club. This Gala celebrates Kids and the success of the KICKSTART KIDS program in middle schools across the State of Texas. The evening begins with a cocktail reception and silent auction followed by an elegant dinner. Our special entertainment this year will be Danny Gokey. Danny has amazing musical talents and was a third place finalist in Season 8 of American Idol. His debut album, My Best Days, was released in March 2010. You won’t want to miss the exciting live auction and a demonstration by the KICKSTART KIDS.

  • steph6449

    Just noticed tickets to that gala where Danny will be performing are $450 and up. Eeps.

    That’s only the second Danny concert known past February now. The other (or other two) are the back to back Chinook Winds casino dates in early May in Oregon.

  • milwlovesadam

    Love it. So cute. Kris at the luau. I was at the same luau in Hawaii at Paradise Cove in October when goatiegarden, Jojosie and I went to see Adam’s two shows in October. That was a fun place, so beautiful. The luau is sooooo cheesy and over the top. But, how can you go to Hawaii and not do a cheesy luau?

    Good for Kris, a little cheese is good for you!

    Will Billy Bush start playing SS after the interview/performance. He never played AWM after Kris when on the show in Dec. This may be an opportunity to introduce a new single.

    Just from a few pics, it looks like Adam may have had an interview with Ellen too. I guess we really need to wait for those who were there to confirm.

  • marmom07

    I just Loooove that vest Adam wore today. Very cool shoulder situation. He looks great, very relaxed, happy and just charmin’ everybody!!! Can’t wait till we get the rest of his interview/performances…

    Adam at the Grove

    I just noticed in those pics of Adam at The Grove that all his fingernails are painted black except the thumb on his left hand. Wonder who has only the left thumbnail painted black now? I know Adam and Kris did that once back during S8.

  • CindyM

    Love these kind of tweets, she’s the person from Extra that Adam interviewed with today:

    Loved the Alli clips, hope to hear some new musIC from her soon!

    The Kris clip was hysterical..lol

  • girlygirl

    saw Adam at The Grove today — he looked great, very relaxed and happy

  • girlygirl

    Kris has some serious hip action going in that hula vid. Love that he refuses to take himself too seriously & is always up for trying new things :)

    Nice interview with Adam from American Idol. Loved this part about writing on the album:

    What are Adam’s inspirations when writing songs? “I’ve had a rollercoaster year and I draw on those experiences. I have an amazing fan base that keeps up with both my professional and personal life. With the next album I will open a door so that they can understand my feelings.”

    Stocked for more Allison Iraheta news! She is supposedly going to bring us some news for this month! (Fingers crossed)

  • lucysfave

    Danny will be the entertainment at an April 15th charity event in the Houston area for Chuck Norris’s foundation.

    So much good news coming out for Danny this last week.

    However, I wish he would leak some information on his time in the recording studio with his producer, Mark Bright….

    Allison has really gotten better at interviews. I also loved her singing in Spanish. I really think she should make a Spanish language album, or at least include a song or two in her next album.

    Loved seeing the video of of Kris at the luau. He really has some nice moves and great hip action. I think Lizzy has been holding out on us with the videos.

    The writing with Hodges sounds like it’s going quite well. I’m looking forward to the new album.

    Kris tweeted about seeing The Foo Fighters. I’m guessing it was their SECRET secret show here in LA. http://blogs.laweekly.com/westcoastsound/2011/02/foo_fighters_spaceland.php

    Adam is really getting mileage out of that Grammy nom. Good for him.

    This is the kind of stuff that makes me happy. Adam seems to make an incredibly great impression with anyone who interviews him.
    And he’s looking gorgeous to boot!
    What a week!!

    Cute little video at CMT’s Facebook with Danny talking football.

    Too bad they didn’t get him after the Packers’ win. Although he might have been bouncing off the ceiling with excitement on that occasion ;)
