‘American Idol’ Alum Haley Reinhart on Interscope Split: ‘I’ll Find Another Great Home’ – “I was more shocked than anything when I heard they were letting go of maybe 65 acts,” the 22-year old Wheeling, Illinois native tells The Hollywood Reporter. “I definitely want to be an artist that is being heard all the time, but they had a lot going on there and had to change things up, so I have to respect that. I’ll find another great home.” Reinhart, who is still managed by 19 Entertainment, is moving forward with plans for 2013, which include a return to the studio to begin recording her next album. “I just want to evolve,” she says, adding, “it’s important to listen to your heart.” – Read more at The Hollywood Reporter

Colton Dixon Loves Listening To “Jingle Bells” In The Summer – Long before he was winning over fans on American Idol, Colton Dixon was performing in rock bands. He confessed that every year his band would cover “Jingle Bells” during the holidays but when it came down to choosing a favorite holiday song he had trouble selecting just one.
“‘Carol of the Bells’ has got to be one of my favorites,” he tells CBS Local. “But I also love ‘Once Upon a December‘ from Anastasia. My choir used to sing that song all the time. It’s so creepy and eerie. I love that. It’s almost like if Tim Burton or Danny Elfman were to take on a Christmas song that’s what that style would be. I love that kind of stuff.” – Read more at Radio Alice

Adam Lambert Teaches Us How To Dance In Our VH1 DIVAS GIF Wall – We’re only two days out from the biggest dance party in VH1 Divas history! Now I like to think I can rock hips, sway and sip with the best of them, but don’t worry if you’re not as confident. Our host Adam Lambert was kind enough to lead a tutorial for a simple but fierce head snap move you can use in a pinch. Need more tips? Check out our GIF wall of past Divas performers’ dancing for inspiration before you watch the show live this Sunday, December 16. The red carpet live stream kicks off right here at 8PM/7C. – Read more at VH1

‘X Factor’: 20 Things You Didn’t See During Emblem3’s Elimination Night – All’s well that ends well at The X Factor, as Drew Chadwick, Wesley Stromberg and Keaton Stromberg seemed actually, well, pleased to be heading home early. “We’re happy because we can go make some bad ass music now and not be under any restrictions,” Wesley told reporters in the press lounge following their elimination. Added Drew, “The bottom line is we had the dopest experience. We got everything we really wanted out of this competition, which was a solid international fan base. We expanded our comfort zone by stepping out of it.” – Read more at Hollywood Reporter

Wow Factor: Country queen Carrie Underwood continues to impress – “I love being a headlining act, but being an opener was a heck of a lot easier,” Underwood says with a laugh. “Now we’re the first ones at the arena and last ones to leave.” “There are a lot of obligations, lot of people to talk to,” she says. “I’m a shy person by nature. I’m not so great at talking. I make awkward moments even more awkward most of the time. I totally enjoy and love to meet different folks from all over — but finally getting on stage is the most fun part of it all.” – Read more at Go

One Direction: Q&As With Billboard’s Top New Artist of 2012 – So when the time came to interview all five members two days after that magical night at the Garden, I was so entrenched in One Direction music and energy that I found I was approaching it less as a journalist and more as a fan — a Directioner, as we call ourselves. Billboard conducted interviews for all five members via phone in between stops on their crazy takeover of New York City, with an occasionally wonky connection that prevented folks like Harry Styles from being able to answer more pressing questions like, “What’s your favorite karaoke song?” or “How long did it take you to rehearse that ‘Dirty Dancing’ move?” – Read more at Billboard

    Great news Haley always looking forward with positivity and planning on her next album already  :D

    Prayers go out to the family members of the adults and kids killed or injured in the school shooting in Connecticut elementary school. At least 27 shot or killed, maybe 18 are kids.

  • girlygirltoo

    How horrible. :(

    Thoughts go out to all the families of the victims

  • blackberryharvest

    I know its all up to MJ, but I think this tragedy needs its own thread.

  • bridgette12

    It’s heartbreaking that there that there are people who walk among us that are pure evil. I can’t even fathom what those parents are going through wondering if their child is alive or dead. Imagine those who lose one or possibly more than one child, I don’t think it can get any worse.

    Horrible, horrible, this news is making me sick to my stomach. There are too may sick people roaming out in communities.

    This afternoon, he did a radio show at The Bull Lounge also in Birmingham…

    and he has a concert tonight at the BJCC with Paul McDonald and Haley Steele as openers…

    oh my…. :)

    There is evil, but I don’t think it is the case here. I think this is mental illness and poor children and adults got in the way.

  • Kariann Hart

    After all the sadness this weekend will be, Adam and “his” Divas will be a welcomed relief.  I cannot wait.

  • bridgette12

    I was thinking the same thing. It’s going to be nice to have the distraction for a few hours. 

  • HKfan

    Axxel, this is for you

    WHUAATT?!!!!! “@INDOGLAM: Adam Lambert Jakarta Indonesia on March 10, 2013 at Gandaria City

  • Axxxel

    Thank you very much HK fan !!
    Tears in my eyes… this can’t be happening….This can’t be happening…Gandaria City is a mall, in South West Jakarta, I think Richard Marx also performed there… It is at a main road that goes North/South and can be very stuck sometimes… but not too far from a wealthy residential area in Jakarta where also a lot of expats are living..  and it is only a half hour drive from my place (if the roads are empty)….

    OMG !

  • Nadine_Bitch

    You’re so lucky, babe. So happy for you o/

  • Axxxel

    Thank you Nadine…. Just hoping that one day, you will be as lucky or even luckier than me !
