Adele has been quiet lately because she had to be. After having vocal cord surgery to remove polyps that caused her to table several planned tours, the women behind the best-selling album since 2004, ’21,’ was ordered to pipe down and keep quiet until she healed. So she had no choice.
However, she’s made progress and is opening up to Anderson Cooper on ’60 Minutes,’ which airs this Sunday (Feb. 12) before the Grammys.
The invites are out! The first 11 dates of Lady Gaga‘s Born This Way Ball world tour have been announced. Gaga revealed the news via Twitter and even posted a pretty graphic of the dates to accompany the good news. North American little monsters might be a little crestfallen, since these dates are slated for countries far, far away.
Madonna kept her promise to offer a clean show during her Super Bowl XLVI halftime performance. It was not oversexed or even PG-13 rated, which could have been expected, since Madge has been known to demonstrate a flair for the erotic throughout her career.
Madonna previewed about a minute of the video for her brand-new single ‘Give Me All Your Luvin” during ‘American Idol‘ tonight (Feb. 2.) The whole shebang drops tomorrow (Feb. 3) via her YouTube channel, but this blink-and-you’ll-miss it clip set the stage and gave us an idea of what to expect. It involves dancing and football — there’s lots of both.
Portland is a pop culture hot bed. From the hilarious series ‘Portlandia’ — which celebrates the indie-dom and coolness of the region and is as far removed from ‘American Idol‘ and its pop sensibilities — to the hipster-friendly nature of the often cloudy and rainy area, Portland is on our radar a bunch. No wonder ‘American Idol’ producers hit the city again this season for the audition phase.
What’s more American than ‘American Idol?’ How about the president, the leader of the free world? ‘Idol’ producer Nigel Lythgoe is actually asking our commander-in-chief if he wants to come on the show during the live episodes to perform Al Green’s ‘Let’s Stay Together.’ Obama performed an impromptu version of the song at a fundraiser at the Apollo Theater, causing Green’s music to spike in sales. Perhaps Lythgoe thinks that a cameo by the President will boost the show’s relatively sagging ratings?
What is it with reality talent competition judges botching the national anthem? ‘The Voice‘ coach Christina Aguilera bungled the song at the Super Bowl last February, and now, Aerosmith frontman and ‘American Idol‘ judge Steven Tyler is being crucified for his poor version of ‘The Star-Spangled Banner,’ which he sang this afternoon (Jan. 22) before the AFC championship game between the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens. The Pats actually won the game, so Tyler’s inept version wasn’t a curse or bad luck.
Jim Carrey’s daughter Jane tried out for ‘American Idol‘ at the San Diego round of auditions. She certainly looks like dear old dad. It’s a bold move for the daughter of a celebrity to try out for the show, but it’s also honest, since the 24-year-old isn’t relying on her dad’s name to get ahead. For that, we certainly applaud Jane Carrey.
Beliebers know that their hero Justin Bieber cares about his fellow humans. He donates buckets of money to a variety of causes (Pencils of Promise is the most prominent, as well as his hometown food bank in Canada) and visits sick kids in the hospital. He’s certainly doing his part. That doesn’t mean that the Bieber backlash from the haters will ever stop.
