“You Going Get Got” ‘American Idol’ Mess, Nicky Minaj Goes Ghetto on Mariah Carey

Nicky Minaj, New Judge on ‘American Idol’

These bi$#%es are crazy.  And  needs this.  Nicky Minaj apparently has gone ghetto on Mariah Carey threatening to shoot the singer who has hired security to protect her from the hottest singer on the pop tart charts along with any music list in America and across the world. 

Wow!

Nicky Minaj is the new judge on American Idol and has made her presence known but is it real or is it Memorex?  Nicky Minaj apparently got so pissed off at Mariah Carey that she walked off the set and threatened to “shoot the bitch” according to The View’s Barbara Walters.

Wow!

So American Idol just may have created some cool content for the upcoming 12th season of the reality show but you gotta admit having these two divas judging the next arc of the show will create a significant amount of turmoil which can and hopefully lead to more viewers for American Idol.

This is what happens when you put Nicky Minaj, today’s hottest pop artist, on the same stage as Mariah Carey.  This could be a real mess which is going to be a lot of fun for American Idol fans.  Can’t wait to see this season and if I’m interested so will a lot of former and current fans.  Nicky Minaj versus Mariah Carey.  Could be fun.

May 23rd, 2012 No comments

Well Jessica Sanchez started off strong last night, then Philip Phillips came on strong as last night’s American Idol and you could tell by the audience reaction that he was going to win this year’s entry for the reality show.

You could feel it in the room.  Jessica Sanchez kicked it off in fine fashion with a Whitney Houston classic and it all declined from there.  Philip Phillips just tore up the rest of his sets after a week start on American Idol and it was a tell tale story for tonight’s big win on American Idol.

Philip Phillips took home the final goal of winner on American Idol in the show’s 11th season.  Phillips is the 5th male singer to take home the final prize on American Idoland sitting next to several southern fans who really seemed to be his biggest fans, you could tell he was favored to win it all. 

American Idoljudge Steven Tyler was called Philip Phillips the next Bruce Springsteen during tonight’s finale.

All Oscars All Night and ‘American Idols’ J-Lo’s ‘Janet Jackson’ Wardrobe Mishap Tops All (YouTube)

February 27th, 2012 No comments

So every time we do a story about the Oscar event people say “you’re at TV blog” and they are pretty much correct on all accounts but we generally tend to focus on the TV people at these events.

Jennifer Lopez's Red Carpet Arrival at the Oscars

Jennifer Lopez's Red Carpet Arrival at the Oscars

So we and a lot of other people were focused on J-Lo, the woman in the dress that was absolutely stunning.  I’m a guy and that was the hottest dress on any female person at the awards last night.  But I have to admit that I’m not a big movie going person and usually wait for them to show up on cable rather than pay like $40 on a Saturday night to take the girlfriend out for a nice movie.  Naaaah!  I’d rather spend the $40 bucks on a scotch, rocks in the start of much better evening than sitting in some seat that has been consumed by everyone’s but I don’t want to put mine in to so now you know why my Match.com subscription keeps on and on and on.

In the meantime let’s talk about J-Lo and the nipple malfunction, er, ah wardrobe malfunction that everyone is chatting about today.  Yes she seemed unaware that a bit of darker skin was showing outside of the covering of her left breast and the media world, including these two dingbats in the YouTube video below, just cant seem to bring themselves to the realization that J-Lo may have shown more than she wanted.

BREAKING NEWS!!!!  THIS JUST IN TO THE ACTION NEWS NEWSROOM!!!! MY GOD ANOTHER SIG ALERT ON THE 405!!!!

OK there’s always a Sig-Alert on the 405 in Los Angeles.

Anyway you be the judge, no pun intended on Jennifer Lopez’s work at American Idol.  Cause you can watch these two nitwits try to explain it as both look and feel like a couple of Tea Party, Rick Santorum following conservatives that thought the LAX Century Boulevard entrance to the strip club Nudes, Nudes, Nudes was actually the Carl’s Jr. drive through.

Yeah, that was funny.

Oprah, OWN’s Big Comeback Brings ‘Next Chapter’ and Questions Oprah’s Health

January 3rd, 2012 No comments

Well it’s about time.  Isn’t this what was supposed to happen once Oprah Winfrey began integrating her personal brand in to the network that bears her name?

Yes.  No question.  But one question and concern that will haunt everyone at OWN for the entire time they work for Oprah Winfrey’s Network.  That question…how healthy is Oprah?

Oprah’s Next Chapter launched on OWN with the highest ratings ever on the network that has failed to find its footing.  A slip on the ice for every minute and every hour of programming until this new show.  Speaking with American Idol’s Steven Tyler about his life and loves, over 1.1 million viewers tuned in tot he premiere episode of the show.

Yaaaay for Oprah.

Now don’t get too excited.  Most network’s can get 1.1 million viewers at midnight on a Saturday night rather than in prime-time on a Sunday night on OWN.  But with Rosie O’Donnell’s show a complete and massive bust, getting the numbers that Oprah brought in this past Sunday is a huge success.

Is Oprah healthy?  Why do I ask that question?  Because OWN will need quality programming content beyond just Oprah Winfrey to make themselves a real, true network.  Yes building a network around such an amazing person seemed like a good idea at the time but that went out the window when the network had as many viewers as passengers on a subway car.

That’s not a lot of people.  And that’s a problem.

But now that Oprah is creating content for her network can she carry it all alone?  Maybe but then comes the health of anyone who will build a TV network around that one person.  What happens when they get run over by a truck?

No matter what this is a huge win for OWN.  They needed it.  But Oprah will have to be the “girl in the plastic bubble” because “danger Will Robinson” will be the phrase of the day if OWN can’t hold its own without “all Oprah all the time” as we used to say in the radio business.

Fans just love themselves some Oprah don’ they?

More content to come on OWN in the new year.  Let’s hope OWN can hold its own in the new year.

‘American Idol’s Adam Lambert Arrested, Scuffles with Boyfriend, He’s Jammed Up as Well

December 22nd, 2011 No comments

Adam Lambert’s love life is apparently like all of ours, according to his boyfriend.  The former American Idol runner boy toy Sauli Koskinen, who himself did a stint as a contestant on the Finnish version of Big Brother, blogged “Love is not easy…but it lasts,” forever” after he and Adam Lambert got busted for brawling in and outside a club in Finland.

Um maybe Sauli needs a Dr. Phil intervention.  Love is definitely not easy and certainly does not last forever but truly love is not something that ends in a fight inside and outside a club leading to beating up the people who tried to break up the fight between the couple.

Calling Dr. Phil!!!  Calling Dr. Phil!!!

The couple had a lover’s spat which led to both being taken in to custody for the fight between them and what took place when others tried to step in and stop the melee.  Unfortunately that melee led to another melee which included those men and women who wear official governmental authority gear with badges attached and guns that fire bullets.

Those are the people, by the way, that most of us tend to avoid.

Both were jammed up for multiple assaults, questioned and released.

‘American Idol’s Steven Tyler One Hot Mess After “Fall” in Hotel Bathroom

October 27th, 2011 No comments

Awwwwrighty!

Yeah we’re believing this one.  If you watched Steven Tyler on the Today Show Thursday he pretty much said he had a fall in the bathroom of his hotel room that blackened his eye and knocked out a couple of teeth.

AMERICAN IDOL: Idol judge Steven Tyler performs during the season ten AMERICAN IDOL GRAND FINALE at the Nokia Theatre

He said it was a stomach issue that caused him to tip over in the bathroom in a Peru hotel during his Latin American tour and told Matt Lauer that he did not relapse from his past history with drugs and alcohol.  “I get that people think that,” said Tyler on the Today Show.  He want on to say “anyone who knows anyone who uses substances wouldn’t be up at this hour having a talk with Matt Lauer and the rest of America.”

But still Steven Tyler really looked messed up from the pictures released by his people after the alleged fall.  When asked by Lauer about his being sober Steven Tyler responded “it’s not the issue.”

The Aerosmith Latin American tour will continue.  In fact he went on stage with sunglasses to cover his busted up eye and when he took them off the audience cheered.  “It’s all about playing to the people,” said Steven Tyler.

‘American Idol’s Jennifer Lopez Love Song Breakdown at Mohegan Sun

October 24th, 2011 No comments

Seems the break-up with Marc Anthony has led to an on-stage breakdown for American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez.

Or is this just another publicity stunt since I got an e-mail over the weekend about the start of the new season 11 of American Idol on FOX.  That new promotional video premiered during the World Series last night as well.

Jennifer Lopez "LOVE?" CD Signing at the Hollywood and Highland Courtyard in Los Angeles

Yeah, timing is everything.  And the producers of American Idol will be going all out to damp down any more talk about the new FOX program The X Factor.

Jennifer Lopez was appearing was performing a love song on stage at Mohegan Sun Hotel and Casino in Connecticut this past Saturday when she became some emotional during the rendition that she bolted off stage.

Gotta believe marriage number fourteen or whatever to Marc Anthony really meant something.

“I’m going to sing you the last song I wrote about love,” said Lopez before performing the tune and bolting off stage.  “A lot has changed since then.”

Yeah, that will get the tears flowing.

And then strangely enough the stage show broke in to her song “Until It Beats No More” where the stage dancers did a routine where Puff Daddy, Ben Affleck and Cris Judd look-a-likes performed a bunch of choreographed routines.

Oh yeah, this is a great PR stunt.

“I took a trip down memory lane,” said a sobbing Lopez to her audience at the show.

Yeah and you sent us down that same lane, where most of us did not want to go.

American Idol debuts on FOX Sunday January 22nd with a great lead in from the NFL Championship Playoff game.

A Radio Guy, a TV Blog, a Wiz Khalifa and a Dan Mason Gets iTunes a Sale (Audio)

June 24th, 2011 No comments

So I made my bones in radio.  Great career working for some great companies and radio stations.  My days at CBS in New York and Philly was the best time of my life.  Radio stations with some great call letters including WBZ in Boston, KYW, WIP and WIOQ in Philly, well you just can’t have a better group of letters on your resume.

Got in to the television thing six years ago.  Gotta admit, I’m probably got radio station call letters tattooed on my rear.  But I’m a knowledge junkie and getting away from radio was the best move personally and professionally.

I just love media.  All of it.  And of course I dig this blog and the world wide web.

So when radio station deejays stopped calling out the names of the artists they played I was pissed.  Really pissed.  Being away from the day to day of music radio, an old school disc jockey here, well naming the music was the way great music radio stations help record labels sell music.

Not naming the song and the artist had to be the dumbest move in the history of radio.  And record labels were pissed just as I was.

So I dig radio in Los Angeles.  Amp 97.1, POWER 106, KISS FM…I may be totally out of demo for those radio stations meaning I’m older than the average listener but you try to drive around L.A. as music is a great assist to the morass of traffic in this region.  I don’t want this announcement to go unnoticed.  Happened almost a month ago.  Let’s read it from Dan Mason, the guy running CBS Radio.

“Effective immediately, CBS Radio contemporary, rock, urban and country stations will increase the integration of title and artist information on new music releases in an effort to personalize, and drive sales of the product.  We will also be expanding our radio play history online as far back as several years, providing a living synopsis of the songs we feature on the air for anyone to access.”

So today I’m headed home and I’m listening to CBS owned Amp 97.1 and I heard this song Black and Yellow bouncing out of my four speakers and for months since the release of this song.  I guess it’s been that long.  I don’t know.  I just dig that song.  But I had no clue show the hell was singing this song.  For months.

"Black and Yellow" Artist Wiz Khalifa

"Black and Yellow" Artist Wiz Khalifa

Now I know it’s Wiz Khalifa.  Wiz Khalifa.  What the hell is a Wiz Khalifa?  Well now I know.  And I don’t have much room on my iPod for a lot more music.  No I will not pull off any Ohio Players or George Clinton, no way.  But I will add the all new as I call it hit from Wiz Khalifa called Black and Yellow to my list of purchases.

I will also be listening to Amp 97.1 a lot more because of just this one simple programming adjustment.  Yep, done deal, as I can easily say, and this is really old school radio, by saying that “my favorite radio station is Amp 97.1.”

Now once again I’m old compared to the audience tuning in this radio station.  But they have a new listener.  And iTunes has a sale.  Isn’t that the goal of being in business in America?

Broadcasters can be stupid.  Really stupid.  Listeners need to know who is who on radio.  Purchases move faster.  Then you purchase more.  Seems like a good move for CBS Radio.  And good for radio stations all over this planet.

Not naming an artist and song is like not naming the contestants on American Idol or The Voice. I actually have no clue who most of them are, OK so I don’t know any of them by name.  They could walk past me every day and I really would not know who they are.  But you get my point about names.  Nice move Dan Mason and CBS Radio.
