Idol Headlines for 10/22/12 – The Evening Edition

Wyclef Jean lands ‘Nashville’ role – So far, outside of cast member JD Souther and a few subtle cameos, “Nashville” has stuck to putting fictitious musical stars on screen rather than real-world ones. That’s set to change soon, as Wyclef Jean will appear in a multi-episode role on the ABC drama later this season. Jean – a singer-songwriter and producer best known for co-founding rap group the Fugees – will play a record label head on the show, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Jean shared the Nashville news (and photo of him on set with co-stars Clare Bowen, Jonathan Jackson, Rya Kihlstedt and Sam Palladio) last week, and returned to town on Monday to resume shooting. – Read more at

Adam Levine Announces Maroon 5?s Overexposed Tour with Neon Trees & Owl City [AUDIO] – Just the thought of Adam Levine makes women (and men too) fall head over heels for his handsome looks and smooth vocals. It’s no mystery that the Maroon 5 hottie has made quite a name for him self as a rocker, an actor and now a judge on “The Voice.” Adam stopped by the On Air with Ryan Seacrest studio to announce tour dates for Maroon 5?s Overexposed tour with special guests Neon Trees and Owl City, what tattoo of his he regrets (though we love all of them) and if he plans to duet with our very own Ryan Seacrest. – See the schedule at Ryan

Why Won’t Adam Levine Ever Take A Break From The Voice?

‘The Voice’ S3, Week 6: Inside Look – In the beginning of rehearsing for our battle song, I Wanna Know What Love Is, we decided we’d do some ultra cool harmonies and make it really hard for Cee Lo to distinguish a winner. However, as the date for our battle approached, something happened; a shift, of sorts. I got weird, he got weird. I began to think the producers and Cee Lo were spending more time coaching him to give him an advantage. He thought that I was trying to hog most of the song. I unhappily watched our friendship morph into something we didn’t recognize anymore. All of a sudden, we were barely speaking to each other, weren’t rehearsing together and we had a really big argument at one of our final rehearsals. – Read more at The Insider

Curvy Christina Aguilera Offered $3 Million to Promote Plus-Size Dating Site – Christina Aguilera’s voluptuous bod could mean a big payday for the former Disney Mouseketeer. TMZ reports that the shapely “Your Body” singer, 31, has been offered $3 million to be the spokesperson for, a dating service “specifically designed for women with curves.” According to a letter to Aguilera’s rep from site president Whitney Thompson, the first-ever plus-size winner of America’s Next Top Model, Xtina is a great example of the company’s “beauty at any size” ideal. – Read more at US Magazine

    Such nice comments about Adam from an actor on PLL

    AE: Were you around when Adam Lambert was shooting his part on the episode?

    BD: I was! I got to meet him in the makeup trailer one day before we did our scenes. I knew he was going to be there because everyone was talking about it. I didn’t know what to expect but he’s genuinely one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met. He also works his ass off so he earned my respect while we were shooting.from here:…

    Over and over and Over again I read such nice comments from people in the entertainment industry who have worked with Adam.


  • Enough already!

    Thanks Marmon for the story on Adam L while the entire post was about Adam L.  Ha, not that big of a Levine fan, but like Maroon 5 as a whole…he just comes across so full of himself at times.  

  • Lori

    Xtina might not be the svelte teen who belted out Genie In A Bottle, but I don’t think she qualifies as a spokesperson for “big and beautiful.” Geez, I thought we were past the Kate-Moss-body-type obsession.

  • girlygirltoo

    Christina isn’t even close to being plus-sized. From seeing her on The Voice, I’d say she’s probably a size 6 or 8, at the very most. Which is average to below average size for American women  

  • girlygirltoo

    Hoping from more surprises from Kris at his show tonight

  • waitingforthe1

    I disagree…I think she’s closer to a size 10.  She’s beautiful but she really needs to start wearing skirts or pants….. I hate that no pants look no matter what size a woman is….

  • Dawn Perretti Joblon

     Christina is probably a 10-12 for sure.  But sadly in modeling a size 12-14 is considered a plus size.  The average american woman is around a 12. 

  • AlesheaDominique

    Lauren Alaina just became a professional member of the ACM. So happy for her. 

  • Chris

    Wyclef Jean on Nashville???  Shakira, Shakira’s Wyclef from “Hips Don’t Lie”?  Now that is stepping outside the box to expand ratings.

  • lovesickheroine

    Oh i thought Adam died from that first episode of American Horror Story. Anyway I’m glad his character is not dead yet.

  • Incipit

    Through the wonders of Real Time around the world – they just finished up with David Cook’s  23-Oct press conference at ION Art ahead of his 25-Oct concert at ION Orchard (Singapore City, SGP) .

    There’s a Chirp Story full of twit pics and several nice details from the PressCon – I laughed at David’s advice to his 18 yr old self – “Don’t get weird haircuts.” – and agreed with what he had to say about judging. The Fact Sheet from the press kit was very comprehensive, even included David’s charity work…and they closed the session with a nice surprise for him –  Sony Music handing over the Gold Award for DCTR sales in Singapore.

  • BonnieDee

    Christina is not anywhere near plus size.  Plus size starts at 14.

  • BonnieDee

    I just can’t get interested in Nashville.  The two lead female roles should have had real country singers in them.  It could have been a way to bring more attention to the women in country music.  They chose to make it more of a soap opera and less about music.

  • Axxxel

    Thank you for the snippet… really looking forward to Adam’s appearance in the TV series…
