Kelly Clarkson Graces This Week’s Cover of People!

Relaxing at their Nashville home together in December, Clarkson recalls, “Out of nowhere I just said, ‘Thanks for being an awesome guy.’ I’ve never been loved properly by a man, and I was just like, ‘I thank you so much for that.’ ” What she didn’t realize was that Blackstock, 36, was about to propose. “Not a damn clue!” she says. “If I did I would have worn something besides Uggs and a sweatshirt with no bra.” – Read more at People Magazine

Nashville Preview Video: Steamy Love in an Elevator and a Chilling Reality Check – Press PLAY on the first of these clips from this Wednesday’s episode (ABC, 10/9c) to watch the guitarist take a definitive (read: hot) step toward settling things with Rayna. Some questions to ponder as you watch (and re-watch) the video: Is the elevator interlude part of a dream? If not, what will it mean for Ms. Jaymes’ marriage? – Read more at TV Line

Lennon and Maisy Stella on Nashville, Snow Days, and Harry Styles – Lennon and Maisy Stella’s first taste of the limelight came last summer, when their lovely cover of Robyn’s “Call Your Girlfriend” became a YouTube sensation (it has 13 million views, and counting). Now the real-life sisters, 13 and 9 respectively, are acting and occasionally singing on country-music soap Nashville, where they play Connie Britton’s two daughters (by — scandal! — two different men). Lennon and Maisy got on the phone with Vulture to discuss Nashville, their favorite TV shows, and the time Harry Styles mentioned them on Twitter. They were very excited about that last one. – Read more at

Mariah Carey Records a New Song for ‘Oz’ – As if Sam Raimi’s Oz The Great and Powerful isn’t already one of the most highly anticipated movies hitting theaters soon, it just got another huge boost — Mariah Carey has recorded a new song for the film! The song is called Almost Home and will be released on February 19. “Almost Home has a message that works beautifully with the film,” the new Idol judge says of the song she both co-wrote and co-produced. “It’s a feel-good record, evoking the feeling of reaching your home and being with people that you love.” – Read more at Entertainment Tonight

    Trespassing is sitting at #1 on Chinese Amazon best selling album.

    It will be officially released in China on Feb 20th! Kesha’s Warrior and Kelly Clarkson’s Greatest Hits are going to be released on the same day. Pre-orders on Amazon with #54 and #1388 respectively.

    Apparently, GNL(Glam Nation Live) is also available at #31 (released 11/18/2011) and FYE at #46 (released 1/14/2011).

    Kris has had to reschedule his concert in Fayetteville, that was supposed to be next month:

    Kris Allen is having to reschedule his March 7th concert with us for April 8th, all tickets that have been… 


    Wow, it is nice to see Adam all over Amazon again even if it is in China. I understand it doesn’t translate to big numbers there but does for other revenue streams. Besides the concerts, I wonder what else there might be in China for Adam, more TV?

  • Nadine_Bitch

    I’m not sure if there are any appearances while he’s in China. With his tour schedule, he will be in Manila on 1st of March, Shanghai on the 3rd then Hongkong on the 5th. I don’t think he has the time though… but I’m hoping he can do appearances on TV while he’s in other country. He did XFactor Australia and Finland while on GNT. He did one in The Netherlands too, I think.

    Back in Sept 2012, MJ posted Adam was in Shanghai, China as a guest appearance on ‘The Voice of China’ grand finale. Voice of China is a very popular singing talent contest in China.

  • Nadine_Bitch

    Yes, he was in Shanghai for the Voice of China on Sept 30, 2012.

    But I think Adam’s first gig in Shanghai was way back in Dec-18-11 for Amway event.

    Then on 2012 he went back to China for:
    The Voice of China- 9-30-12
    The 80’s show 10-7-12
    MAMA Awards(Hongkong)-11-30-12
    Mercedes Benz media event(Guangzhou, China)- 27-11-12
    Interview with Chinese National TV CCTV- 12-1-12
    Hennessy Artistry event at the Mercedes-Benz Arena-12-2-12

    From Kelly’s People interview

    Now the couple is busy planning an “earthy” outdoor fall wedding at home
    – think yellow roses for Texas – while Clarkson also works on two new
    and preps for the Grammys on Feb. 10

    Two?! The common assumption is that one of them is a Christmas album for later this year, but this is new news on another album. Is it a full pop album, country album, yodeling album, what is it?! In Kelly speak, it could really be anything and at any stage in the process as she’s always looking for and writing songs. More questions to add to the growing list of questions. She’s certainly keeping herself busy.

    It’s great to see Allison doing a gig associated with the Grammy’s. Can’t wait to hear more music from her band Halo Circus.

    Nice to see some Matt Giraud news

  • roarpen

     I thought he would have a single out by now, or at least by early March. I hate to see him lose more momentum – 2nd album curse.

  • irockhard

    A single for what, HAC? I hope he never touches that format again. Rock radio? They’re not gonna play it unless the tour crowds rave about it. He doesn’t need a single what he needs is to hit the road again.
