Too much going on for me to hold stuff. So here’s a bonus blog entry for the day.
Breaking at 5:50 p.m., thanks to Kelly&CarrieFan! Q100 is hosting its annual free concert for its listeners at the Loft (capacity 650 people) with headliners Kelly Clarkson and Jay Sean (No. 1 song “Down”). Two things to note: only way to get in (besides connections) is to be a friend of Q100 online or to win tickets on the station. And Kelly will be doing a “power acoustic” set for just 25 minutes, according to Q100 OM Rob Roberts. This will not be a full concert so don’t expect one. But it should be cool in such a tiny setting. Wasn’t I just complaining about her not coming to Atlanta? This isn’t exactly an ideal situation in terms of getting all her Atlanta fans a shot to see her, but it will be a treat to the lucky few who do get in.
Not surprisingly, Adam Lambert has used Twitter to bite back at the nasty bite-the-hand-that-just-fed-you Out magazine editor:
“Chill! Guess ya gotta get attention for the magazine…U too are at the mercy of the marketing machine. … Until we have a meaningful conversation, perhaps you should refrain from projecting your publication’s agenda onto my career.”
Lambert's also part of People’s sexiest men alive list. That was a gimme!
Chris Daughtry joins him in People, too.
Star magazine claims Fantasia is now dating a man, who left his wife and two young kids to live with her.
Kris Allen’s album version of Kanye West’s “Heartless” is very breathy and ethereal. I like it. But apparently, Kris wasn’t that thrilled with the final result, he told MTV.com. Go figure.
Sadly, he may end up with the weakest opening CD sales for an “Idol” winner. Hitsdailydouble is predicting sales of just 80,000 range for Allen his first week. I will bet that Adam Lambert will easily exceed 200K next week. Several artists will do better than him including Justin Bieber (discovered by an Atlantan), Andrea Bocelli, McDonough’s own Casting Crowns, Norah Jones, 50 Cent and former Atlantan John Mayer.
