Idol Headlines for 9/22/12

The iHeartRadio Festival continues tonight with Aerosmith, Pink, Brad Paisley, Mary J. Blige and more. You can watch it live beginning at 7 pm PDT right here.

‘Idol’ invasion – The tables had been turned. The “American Idol” Season 11 finalists were sitting in a panel and we were vying for their attention. So far, two fan girls were winning. “Um, hi!” they squeaked into the microphone, giggly and high-pitched. Realizing that they were at a press conference and they needed to ask a question, the girls added, “We love you so much, do you love us too?” – Read more at

Christina Aguilera Opens Up About Leaving The Voice: “It’s Bittersweet,” but I’ll Probably Be Back – “It’s bittersweet,” the Grammy winner exclusively told us earlier today while promoting her new just-released-on-iTunes single, “Your Body,” from her upcoming album Lotus (out Nov. 13). “I so enjoy being a coach to my team on The Voice [and] and at this point in season three, all of us coaches have truly bonded.” Even so, she explained, “In order to be the best coach I can be on that show is to go out and be able to have the experience as an artist…create new experiences for myself so that I can then come back to the show and share that much more.” – Read more at E News

    Jessica’s Billboard is cute.

  • Chris

    Go Jessica! Very cool to have a billboard feature shot.

    Lee DeWyze will perform at the Malibu Music Awards tonight. Pentatonix from the Singoff will also sing. The ceremony is honoring Glen Campbell this year:

    1D’s having some social media drama right now… Someone uploaded audio to Tumblr that’s allegedly of Zayn telling underage girls how to get past security at his hotel, including giving them a name to use (Crystabel Riley, which is trending right now and also happens to be the name of 1D’s hair/makeup person). Zayn has a girlfriend now (Perrie Edwards of Little Mix), so the Directioners are debating whether the audio is from before they got together, if the girls are really underage, if Zayn and Harry do this everywhere they go, and if the audio is even legit.

    Scotty McCreery’s thoughts on Keith Urban(and kinda Nicki Minaj!) joining the panel:

  • Claude Dee

    Agreed. But they could have done better. I love Jessica Sanchez when she smiles. I just wish they made her look young. 

  • durbesque

    The movie must be having an effect already…”Home” is #8 on iTunes.

  • wordnerdarchie

    As mentioned in another thread today, “Home” is not played during the movie. ;)

  • Valarie

    Home is played in all of the TV commercials for the movie.

  • wordnerdarchie

    Yes, I know that – that doesn’t explain why now it has gone up again on iTunes (since tv commercials have been playing several weeks).  As previously discussed, some have been thinking today (in error) that it was because the actual movie is now out that drove it up TODAY.

  • tripp_ncwy

    I thought P2 said in a an interview or on twitter that Home was gonna be playing in the movie during a dramatic scene?

  • Cherry

    sooo happy for Jess!! Glad to hear she’d been chosen as an endorser for huge companies over there as well..awesome!!

  • durbesque

    Yes, I read that…I thought he said AFTER a dramatic scene.  Somebody who has actually seen the movie would be the authority.  Could it be more radio play?

  • Jenny Mcconville

    I saw Trouble With The Curve last night and Home is not played during the movie. I’d love to have heard it, but the movie was good.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    That billboard of Jessica is ginormous! lol  Great endorsement and she looks good.

  • girlygirltoo

    Kris sang at (his bass player) Chris Torres’ wedding today :)

  • Erlinda

    Wow! Love Jessica’s billboard. She look fantastic in that outfit!

  • girlygirltoo

    I thought Phillip said it was in the actual movie? Maybe the scene got cut at the last minute or something. Or he was misinformed.

  • tripp_ncwy

    The wedding party continues; Cale, Kris &  Torres

  • wkstrack

    In this article, it confirms Skylar is engaged! 

  • Donne

    Kinda weird cause the admin has stated before that posts should be related to the thread….just saying

  • Listening

    I feel bad for Perrie in regards to Zayn. It just doesn’t look good. I tracked down the audio and listened to it and I guess technically Zayn could say a girl wasn’t for me I was just setting it up for Harry but…. Also where are people getting that the girls where underage did someone track down the girls and they revealed their ages?

    Anywho I’m sure they’re gonna have a talk about this b/c I bet the media will pick up on this soon and it wont just be floating around haphazardly on the net. I have no idea what he’s said it could be this was before us or it was just for Harry. But if it was me I’d be tired of having to deal w/ this and sit Zayn down and say “do you wanna be w/ me and only me…..are you sleeping around on me just be honest w/ me b/c I don’t want to be that girl. ” Maybe it would shame him into admitting the truth. Man though if he denied cheating on me that would be tough to believe honestly. Even though I wouldn’t put it past some directioners to lie to split Zayn and Perrie up b/c some are just obsessed and cray cray, Perrie has got audio and video of him setting up booty calls that’s just really incriminating not just heresay.

    Perrie has said she trusts Zayn but if more and more vids and audio keeps popping up can’t really blame her for doubting.

  • jr8809

    Skylar’s engaged, that really came out of nowhere. lol

  • Listening

    Skylar’s engaged isn’t she only like 20, man that’s young.

  • raya

    Not really.  I think Skylar’s been engaged for almost a couple of months already, but hasn’t really been blasting it all over.  Plenty of fans spotted her wearing the ring during tour and I don’t think she’s really denied it if asked, but there was no major announcement.

    I could be wrong, but I believe that the Headlines Thread is a bit of a different animal than the other threads at MJ’s. You can bring in new information, articles, links and news for discussion, provided it has not already been posted or covered elsewhere on the blog, and provided it is about an individual, group or show that is covered by this blog. I know someone else will correct me if I’m wrong.

  • elliegrll

    She tweets about her boyfriend all of the time.

  • Ratna12

    I saw the preview of Home last Tuesday and I did not hear Home at all and I stayed until the end of credit. Thank gawd, since I did not want to hear it.

    By the way, I really enjoyed the movie Trouble With The Curve.

  • ShannonM

    I felt that Ryan was looking out for Britney at the iHeartRadio music festival, when he brought her out on stage to kick things off and that this helped her to come across as being more “natural” than she had seemed in her earlier public appearances when the word first came out about her being a judge on X Factor.   This sorta touches me as well as reassuring me that her involvement with X Factor may actually be of help to her in the bigger picture.

  • mjsbigblog


    To answer some questions.

    Yes, the rules for the Headlines thread are a little looser than other posts.  I encourage people to link to articles that may be of interest to readers here–even if they are a little off-topic.  It’s so hard to keep track of the alums in particular, that it’s nice to have a team of fans who keep us ALL up to date.

    Also, if a post is about a particular alum, it’s fine to go off-topic as long as the post continues to remain focused on that particular alum. However, I will delete comments such as “Oh nice cover by x, but my special snowflake sang it too…and much better btw!!!”  or any post that has the potential to begin a fan war or divert attention away from the subject of the post.

    I also don’t mind links to other blogs if the info is useful and/or not redundant. I do get a little irritated if I get an inkling that a poster is only hanging around in order to pimp their own sh*t, however.

    Got to love David Cook, as he wishes someone a happy 16th birthday, in his own way, of course. ;)

  • DoesMonaKnow

    This Zayn situation makes the new song a little more interesting to hear…it looks like they want to live it up and “get some” now that they’re big stars, which would be fine I guess if Zayn didn’t have a girlfriend who seems to expect fidelity from him. Of course this situation could be misrepresented: maybe it’s not really him, or he and Perrie actually have an “understanding” but they just don’t discuss it because the public doesn’t tend to go for “open relationships”.

    Or, Zayn really is hooking up with groupies behind his girlfriend’s back. It’s probably pretty typical behavior of a guy with his fame and female following but if he wants to do that, he should just be single. It’s not like he needs to be attached for the sake of his image; if anything, his fans would probably appreciate it if he didn’t have any girlfriend, let alone another celebrity. But if Perrie is really “in love”, she might be willing to sweep this incident under the rug. Maybe he’ll try to be good going forward, but more likely he’ll just keep doing the same thing except for finding a different name for the groupies to give security.

  • girlygirltoo

    If Zayn is hooking up with groupies when he is supposed to be in a committed relationship, I would break off the relationship if I were his girlfriend. If they have an open relationship, that’s a different story.

    They are very young to be in a serious relationship anyway, but it shouldn’t be that difficult to stay away from groupies if he’s supposedly “in love” — most of these girls are likely only interested in hooking up with him because he’s famous, and want to brag about it to their friends. Also, if he’s going to hook up with random girls, he better make sure they aren’t underage, because there’s a sh*tstorm waiting to happen. And considering that fanbase, I’d say there is a very good chance that a lot of these groupies ARE underage.
