I’m on a break until July 21 so I’ll post periodic home entries for the regular “American Idol” crew to gather while I’m gone. I’ll post three this week (including this one).
Feel free to feed any breaking “Idol” related news while I’m gone. The tour has begun and auditions for season 12 continue. Let’s hope Phillip Phillips stays healthy. I don’t think “Idol” needs to pin down its judges until August so rumors of J. Lo’s departure will probably pop up again.
I also saw a story before I left that Corey Clark (you know, the season two contestant who allegedly slept with Paula Abdul) is suing MTV for $40 million, claiming he was unfairly ridiculed by one of its reporters. Given how libel laws work, given that he has been a public figure, I find it hard to believe he’ll get a penny from MTV. And a woman who threw a brick and broke a window on Simon Cowell’s house was punished. The story does not say what her motivations were.
