Fox Chief Compares Angus T. Jones’ Comments to Nicki Minaj’s Latest ‘Idol’ Feud – “It’s part of the world we live in,” said Reilly, drawing comparison to American Idol judge Nicki Minaj’s public feud with series alum Steven Tyler. “You want stars to represent themselves, but sometimes they freestyle a little bit.” In the case of American Idol, Reilly said he thinks news is ultimately “going to be good for [the network],” because of the publicity it generates and the interest it raises in the new season that starts in January. “There’s a point where it can get out of control,” he added, turning back to Two and a Half Men. “[That] is where the PR people come in and tell Angus to apologize in a statement.” Peter Benedek, co-founder of the UTA talent agency, piped in that he would bet it is Jones’ agent who is suffering the most from this, calling him “the most tortured individual of all.” – Read more at The Hollywood Reporter

Phillip Phillips Plans Headlining Tour Following Moon’s Big Debut – So with his debut album firmly entrenched in the Top 10, and a hit single under his belt, Phillips is gearing up for the next phase of his career: His first headlining tour … but, as you’d probably expect, he’s approaching it in much the same way he approaches everything else: with humility. “The tour is in the works, it’s going to happen early next year, like around February or so … we’re still planning it out, I think we’re going to keep it just me and the band, doing something like that,” he said. “It’s going to be a lot of fun and, y’know, I’m just hoping people will want to come out to it.” – Read more at MTV

Have yourself a Claymate Christmas – Although he may have finished second in “American Idol’s” season two finals and lost out to Arsenio Hall to take the two spot again in the last installment of “The Celebrity Apprentice,” to millions of Claymates, recoding star Clay Aiken will always be No. 1 in their hearts. “I think I am destined for second place forever, it’s just the way my life goes,” Aiken jokes. “I’m glad I could provide some humor and fodder for people.” “The show seems like such a long time ago now. It’s been 10 years and I find as I get older, I can remember less and less,” Aiken says. “It was an amazing experience and I am so thankful for what it has brought.” – Read more at The

Chris Colfer Talks Glee’s Thanksgiving, Klaine’s Realization and His Big Apple Dreams for Kurt – TVLINE | When last I spoke to you and Darren Criss, you each expressed your wish for conflict in the whole Kurt/Blaine thing. Are you satisfied with the way they delivered that? Was the break-up organic enough? I think we’re pretty satisfied. It was really just nice to do something else. As much as everyone wants to see them together forever, as actors that would have been so boring for us. We’d have to start saying “I love you” in different languages to spice things up a bit! So I’m really glad they’re broken up or separated or whatever they are for now. Now that the actual break-up arc is out of the way, is Kurt going to be a more of an active character there in New York City? I hope so. We’ll see. I mean, he hasn’t really grasped New York yet — he goes to work and comes home and tells Rachel things. I would really like to see him go out and have fun and meet new people. – Read more at
