Shocker! American Idol’s Kristy Lee Cook, eliminated at seventh place this year, is the first finalist since the two Davids to announce a record deal. She has reportedly signed with 19 Recording’s Nashville sector, Arista Nashville, which she was signed to as a teenager! What is even more shocking is that her single, “15 Minutes of Shame” will hit airwaves on August 11th – possibly before runner up David Archuleta’s first single.
Something about that just ain’t right. Aside from the fact that she was my least favorite of the top ten, why isn’t the spotlight going to Carly Smithson, Brooke White or, hell, even Jason Castro? I foresee Arista Nashville giving her the boot in the near future, just as they did all those years ago.
Model Ruslana Korshunova’s death on Saturday is bothering me in a way similar to the way Heath Ledger’s death bothered me. Her death has been ruled “an apparent suicide”, but nothing has been said that would substantiate this claim, which of course, leaves the masses to poke and prod at the girl’s life. Most of the reports cite her MYSPACE as examples of a so-called downwards spiral her life took. Are we seriously this starved for “news”? And Geraldo Rivera showed clips of her uncovered body at the scene on Fox News. Disgusting.
In real fake news, Lindsay Lohan seems to have convinced Samantha Ronson to hold hands with her on Friday -- in broad daylight, for no reason than out of affection. Last weekend, Lilo seemed to have a little difficulty convincing SamRo to give into the baby PDA while leaving Hamburger Central. What a difference a few days make!
