The Voice VS American Idol! Kelly Clarkson VS Katy Perry! WHO WON???

American Idol won the night of its big premiere Sunday, even beating out Fox's O.J. Simpson interview.

Simpson interview. But on Monday the Katy Perry-powered reboot faced its real rival -- NBC's ratings juggernaut The Voice, with their secret weapon -- lovable Idol alum Kelly Clarkson. So who won the singing competition competition?? QUIZ: Which American Idol Reboot Judge Are You??? ABC's Idol dropped from its premiere high of 10.3 million viewers (which was in fact an historic low for Idol premieres) to 8.4 mil, with a 1.8 rating in the key adults 18-49 demo. But The Voice stood triumphant, even beating out Idol's premiere numbers with 11.7 million, and a 2.3 rating! What's more, that was about the same as last week when they didn't have another singing show to compete with. Dang. [Image via ABC/NBC.].....»»

Katy Perry Breakdown #2: Sort Of Throws Chair On American Idol

Earlier this morning we checked out Katy Perry's poultry-fueled meltdown on a Japanese game show, but like all celebs as they inch closer to the shart of darkness, her shenanigans are increasing in frequency, and we now have this clip of Perry thinking she's chucking a chair across the room on American Idol. A singing competition that she judges. Perry judges a competition based on singing. Perry. Singing. Talent. why doesn't any of this sound right. The post Katy Perry Breakdown #2: Sort Of Throws Chair On American Idol appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. RIP @katyperry‘s chair. #HollywoodWeek #AmericanIdol pic.twitter.com/tHRrvXgabr — American Idol (@AmericanIdol) April 2, 2018 Earlier this morning we checked out Katy Perry’s poultry-fueled meltdown on a Japanese game show, but like all celebs as they inch closer to the shart of darkness, her shenanigans are increasing in frequency, and we now have this clip of Perry thinking she’s chucking a chair across the room on American Idol. A singing competition that she judges. Perry judges a competition based on singing. Perry. Singing. Talent. why doesn’t any of this sound right. Perry’s chair frenzy was caused by her excitement over a contestant’s performance. While normally throwing a chair due to excitement would scream of cocaine, the fact that Perry sort of slow-mo places the chair in an aisle in a fit of sloth-like rage means that we might be dealing with downers here. Or maybe she’s mixing. Or maybe she’s a desperate slut. Grabbing headlines for being an eccentric genius is one thing, but Perry might as well be trying to court popularity on an elementary school playground by eating bugs. In fact I can’t guarantee we won’t be seeing that on another Japanese game show. Thankfully Perry has diligently turned herself into what 2015 Miley Cyrus would look like if she was a divorced Ohio mom trying to reclaim her sexuality. We don’t care about the wellbeing of ugly people. A matter of principle.   I’ll just leave @katyperry and her chair here.

American Idol Producer Defends Katy Perry"s Crazy Salary & Explains Why A Reboot Is Already Happening!

Don't judge — American Idol knows what it's doing! Producer Cecile Frot-Coutaz sat down with The Hollywood Reporter this week to dish on the reboot that has many fans saying — "Huh?

Producer Cecile Frot-Coutaz sat down with The Hollywood Reporter this week to dish on the reboot that has many fans saying -- "Huh? But why?" -- and explained why execs wasted no time bringing the hit show back. She also spoke on the insane paycheck Katy Perry is reported to be receiving as a judge -- and explained why the pop star is totally worth it! Video: Katy To Host 2017 MTV VMAs! The CEO of FremantleMedia North America, which produces Idol, says the show's production costs are on par with competing shows -- even with Katy Kat's reported $25 million salary. In an interview published on Thursday, she explained: "The show is not more expensive than its competitors in the genre. If other networks can make it work on similar properties, then there's no reason why ABC couldn't. This notion that the show [costs] a lot more than any other is completely untrue. We know that because we've made other shows in other genres. ABC wouldn't order something that didn't work for them financially." Showbiz is still a business, after all. The 51-year-old added that she thinks the Swish Swish singer will also benefit from this new job during this transitional phase of her career, noting: "Katy is in a transition in terms of her own career. It has been shown now what these platforms can do for artists. It has been beneficial to other people, whether it's on Idol or The Voice. But I think she genuinely cares. She auditioned when she was a guest judge on Idol in 2010 and then on the [U.K.] X-Factor. She's brilliant." Brilliant, indeed! We fondly remember Katy's 2010 guest spot -- specifically when she threatened to throw coke in Kara Dioguardi's face. Related: Fox Is Salty About Losing Idol The other judges have yet to be confirmed -- though rumored stars include Chris Daughtry, Lionel Richie, and Charlie Puth -- one name, however, was always in the cards to return: Ryan Seacrest! Frot-Coutaz admitted producers "always" planned on locking down the OG host, despite his super busy sched. She explained: "It was always going to happen. It's hard for Ryan. He's on the East Coast now and had to figure out how to make it work, but he's the hardest-working man in show business, so there will be some flying back and forth. But, as I said, it was always going to happen. He's the face of Idol." Eh, we think Simon Cowell's eye rolls are the face of Idol -- but Ry Guy is a close second! Related: Idol Alum Haley Reinhart Arrested For Battery! As for why ABC felt like it was the right time to bring back Idol just a year after its cancellation on Fox, the exec explained: "When Idol wrapped, we did extensive research. We found that we'd recruited new, much younger viewers. Do you wait five or six years, with the landscape continuing to evolve, and risk losing those followers? In thinking about doing the right thing for the brand and franchise, it felt to us that it was an unfinished story. Even though the show lived on Fox for 15 years, its audience is actually closer to that of ABC or CBS." We agree... if by "unfinished story" she means countless winners who have yet to launch legit music careers. LOLz! Will YOU be tuning into the next chapter of American Idol when it returns?

Katy Perry Dragged Off Stage By Luke Bryant After Kissing Bachelorette

This is pretty much as #MeToo-y and workplace assault-y as we're going to get on screen in 2018, and while if we replaced Perry with Rose McGowan an all-out Twitter war would have been ignited, since there's a magical bubble around Perry, Luke Bryant, and the rest of American Idol, the bit is being received with a nonchalantness that harkens back to television pre-#MeToo. Is Perry actually an American Idol for staving off political correctness, or is she just a dumb cow? You decide. The post Katy Perry Dragged Off Stage By Luke Bryant After Kissing Bachelorette appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?.   Maybe it’s time that we start celebrating Katy Perry. In an era when complimenting someone on their haircut equates to first-degree murder, Perry and her American Idol cohorts continue to prove that they haven’t read the news within the past year and that they’re going to act like horny mentally disabled middle school boys whether the world likes it or not. While most people hide workplace assault behind closed doors, Perry prefers to air it out on national television. You may remember that in March she tricked a kid into swapping spit with her. The backlash apparently only fueled our kissing bandit, because during this week’s season finale of American Idol, she grabbed the Bachelorette’s hand during a cross series promotion gone right and gave it a lengthy kiss after stating “I’m not single but I still like you.” From the expression on the Bachelorette’s face, the feeling is… not mutual. But Perry’s stage version of “I Kissed a Girl and I liked it” was soon overshadowed by Luke Bryan when he, a man, physically wrestled Perry, a woman (allegedly,) off the stage in a hilarious bit that surely delighted comatose viewers of all ages.

Katy Perry Ambushed An American Idol Contestant With A Kiss — & He Did NOT Like It! Watch!

Following the broadcast of his Idol audition on Sunday, Benjamin Glaze said he did not consent to the "uncomfortable" kiss judge Perry planted on him without permission. Related: Twitter Had A LOT To Say About The Idol Revival! The now 20-year-old explained to The New York Times: "I wanted to save it for my first relationship. I wanted it to be special." While the aspiring singer didn't feel sexually harassed by the pop star, he said he definitely would have refused a peck if she had asked permission, adding: "I know a lot of guys would be like, ‘Heck yeah!' But for me, I was raised in a conservative family and I was uncomfortable immediately." The controversial lip lock went down during an audition interview in which the electronics store cashier admitted to never having kissed a girl. After hearing this news, Perry coyly beckoned the fresh meat her way for a harmless kiss on the cheek -- only to turn her head at the last second and plant one right on his lips: Fellow judges Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan cheered and high-fived Perry, who afterwards offered an innocent apology for giving the contestant the "kiss of death." Related: The Voice VS American Idol -- WHO WON The Ratings? After the segment aired during Sunday's premiere, some viewers found the kiss to be inappropriate in the wake of the #MeToo movement, arguing that such an encounter would not fly had the genders been reversed: Imagine if a 33 year-old male artist tricked a 19 year-old female auditioner into a kiss like Katy Perry just did with that teenage guy. Would we all think it was cute? #AmericanIdol — Craig M. Tiede (@craigmtd) March 12, 2018 For what it's worth, Glaze seemed quite smitten by the smooch attack -- until, that is, the judges told him he wasn't ready for the competition. Kiss of death, indeed! To her credit, Perry took some of the blame, sweetly telling her experimental game: "I think you were a bit rushed and I think that's because I sped up your BPM of the heartbeat." No kidding! Video: GIRD YOUR WIGS Before You Watch This Hilarious Idol Moment! In the end, Glaze isn't counting the on-screen smooch as his first kiss. He told the Times: "It was lip contact versus a romantic situation with someone you care about. That's what a real first kiss is." Translation: it felt so wrong, it felt so right, don't mean he's in love tonight. Do YOU think Katy crossed the line by kissing the contestant? [Image via ABC.].....»»

THIS Is Why Katy Perry Sent Taylor Swift A Literal Olive Branch!

The story behind the apology! As seen on Instagram Story on Tuesday, Katy Perry sent Taylor Swift a literal olive branch to "clear the air" on their "past miscommunications."

As you may or may not know, the two began feuding after the American Idol host reportedly stole dancers from the Reputation [...] The story behind the apology! As seen on Instagram Story on Tuesday, Katy Perry sent Taylor Swift a literal olive branch to "clear the air" on their "past miscommunications." Related: Taylor Kicked Off Her Reputation Tour! As you may or may not know, the two began feuding after the American Idol host reportedly stole dancers from the Reputation singer years ago. According to an ET Online source on Wednesday, the Swish Swish musician sent the apology to prove that women should not be pitted against each other. The insider explains: "Katy planned a very personal, sweet apology and took time to write a kind note in hopes Taylor would see how much she cared about putting this behind them... Katy told friends if Taylor didn't accept this apology, she would keep trying because she is done holding on to the past and wants to be part of the change in today's society. She wants to set a good example for women, so she planned to never give up, if that is what it took." Now that Taylor has responded to Katy's note, the two can hopefully become friends again. "Katy hopes they finally can be supportive of each other's music and maybe one day soon even hang out together again... Katy realizes they need to take it one day at a time, but that this is a great start." Apparently, Orlando Bloom's flame has been trying to make amends with Swift for quite some time. "Katy and Taylor's years of cruel comments about one another in their interviews, their shots at each other on their social media and their full-blown attacks in their music videos, continued to show their one goal -- revenge... In the beginning, both Katy and Taylor were to blame for their digs at one another, but Katy has been trying to make amends for some time. Each attempt by Katy to apologize or show Taylor respect went either unnoticed or worse, ignored." As we reported in June 2017, in an interview with Ariana Huffington, Perry said she forgives Taylor and is "sorry for anything [she] ever did." Unfortunately, Taylor just "wasn't having it," and reportedly kept the feud going. "She hates that feeling of having bad blood... She often told friends she wanted to end this fight with Taylor, but didn't know how to make that happen. Katy's attempts to apologize through her interviews seemed to have no effect on Taylor. She kept trying to show Taylor she cared and wanted to end this rift, but Taylor wasn't having it." Their beef was especially awkward for mutual friends, who felt they had to pick sides. "Most of their friends have come to terms with their disdain for one another, but it hasn't made social situations easy for anyone... Their mutual friends often felt obligated to choose 'Team Taylor' or 'Team Katy.'" Despite Katy's olive branch, their drama might not be over, just yet. According to The Sun Online, Katy was "surprised" that Taylor posted her handwritten note on social media: "Katy expected that Taylor would post something about it, but she didn't expect the actual letter to go on social. The thing is, you can only see part of what Katy wrote and it looks like she's taking sole responsibility for the entire feud. Without context, it looks like she's taking the blame for everything and obviously there's a lot more to it than that." Can't we all just get along??

Katy Perry Gets Dragged For Body Shaming YouTuber With Nonstop Fat Jokes In Swish Swish Video

Critics didn't just dislike it because they found the vid utterly silly and toothless, completely avoiding the combative meaning behind the lyrics, but also because the jokes were seen as dated and immature. Oh yeah, and also hurtful. Video: Logic Tells A Powerful Story About Acceptance & Suicide Prevention In 1-800-273-8255 One of the guest stars playing Katy's basketball teammate was vlogger (and Twitter genius) Christine Sydelko (seriously, follow her @csydelko). Unfortunately her entire role in the video seemed to be the butt of some really unfunny fat jokes. Her nickname was "Shaquille O'Meals" and her stats were "5.7 tacos per minute." And all she did was eat the entire vid. Even Christine's own YouTube cohost Elijah Daniel tweeted (but quickly deleted) some scathing criticism of the body shaming bit: It doesn't matter that Christine makes fun of her own body and diet; that's her prerogative. It is NOT the same for an international sex symbol to do it for five minutes. Basic indeed. Elijah wasn't the only one who had a problem with it.

Money Drama! American Idol Had To Expand Its Budget To Secure Final Judges Thanks To Katy Perry"s Crazy Paycheck!

The American Idol revival seemed to be tripping from the start after paying a cool $25 million to secure first judge Katy Perry. As we reported, Katy Kat's healthy paycheck royally screwed over the budget for the reality singing competition, leaving very little wiggle room to negotiate with the other two judges. Related: Lionel Thinks Scott Disick Is The 'Worst Person' For Sofia To Date! The production eventually booked Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan to complete the superstar trio, making it look like everything is running smoothly on the surface. But behind the scenes, execs are apparently worried that this overpriced concert might completely blow up in their faces! An insider told Page Six that Katy's deal -- not to mention Ryan Seacrest's hefty $15 salary -- left mere "pennies" for fellow judges, cutting into costs so deep that execs had to expand their budget to land the rest of the talent. The source explained: "ABC was originally going to spend no more than $50 million on talent. They had to expand their budget for Lionel." The network source told the publication that it was CEO Ben Sherwood who signed off on Katy's staggering paycheck without thinking of how it would impact the rest of the production budget: "Ben Sherwood blew the budget on Katy without thinking how that would impact other areas of the show budget. He gambled on her because of her appeal to a younger audience and huge social-media following. But Katy is effectively taking money from the other judges, who then had to be paid way less." We guess he was looking through those Kitty Purry tinted glasses. Can you really blame him? Video: American Idol Judges Discuss Las Vegas Shooting On GMA Understandably, Katy's deal caused some financial drama with Bryan and Richie. The source added: "The negotiations with Luke and Lionel have been fraught and difficult because of [Katy's paycheck]. They expected similar deals to Katy, but are, in fact, getting a hell of a lot less. In the end, ABC had to cough up a second round of money to sign the other judges." Just how much did they lowball the other musicians? A mere $2.5 million each! This measly offer offended Richie and Bryan, of course, who refused to signed their deals until ABC coughed up more dough. The source continued: "As of last week, their contracts were not done. Sherwood authorized ABC to cough up more money. They're both making about $7 million each now. This has become a very expensive show. If ‘Idol' doesn't work, it will blow up big time in Sherwood's face. If it does work, he's a genius." Despite multiple sources detailing the money drama, an ABC rep claimed to Page Six that it's "not true. Ben never had to get involved, and the deals were done within the original ABC talent budget for the show." Hmm... Either way, if they wanna compete with The Voice, they gotta fork up that Adam Levine money!.....»»

Woman Breaks Nondisclosure Agreement To Expose The Underage Sexual Relationship She Had With R. Kelly

On Monday, Buzzfeed News brought to light another alleged victim of the Ignition singer, who claims she was paid to keep quiet about a sexual relationship she had with the hitmaker when she was only 16. How awful. Related: R. Kelly Denies His Concerts Are Being Canceled Apparently, Jerhonda Pace (née Johnson) was an avid fan of the chart topper and made a point to attend his 2008 child pornography trial. Sadly, after defending Kelly in numerous publications, Jerhonda would allegedly go on to be one of the A-lister's many victims. Although the now 24-year-old mother-of-three is breaking a nondisclosure agreement, Jerhonda says she felt compelled to come forward after hearing reports of Kelly's supposed sex cult. Pace explained: "If I can speak out and I can help them get out of that situation, that's what I will do. I didn't have anybody to speak up on my behalf when I was going through what I was going through with him. He's brainwashed them really bad, and it kind of reminds me of Charles Manson. I just really hope I can help these women out. Kelly needs to be stopped." Jerhonda first met her idol outside of the Cook County Court and Kelly would make an effort to "always" speak to the then teen when they'd cross paths. On their court house meeting, the Chicago native shared: "He didn't have anything to sign, and neither did I, but my friend reached into her pocket and found an old bank slip, so I got his autograph on her bank slip. I laminated that." Unfortunately, this wasn't the last time Jerhonda interacted with the superstar as a friend and employee of Kelly's friended Pace on Myspace in May of 2009. The unnamed friend then invited Pace to a party Kelly was throwing at a mansion in Olympia Fields, IL. Jerhonda was "nervous" about the meet up as she had lied to her parents about where she was going. While at the bash, Jerhonda had one on one time with Kelly, which resulted in the I'm A Flirt performer putting his phone number into the teen's cellphone. Pace claims she did not tell Kelly that she was underage, but would later inform private investigators that she had told the songwriter that she was 19. In June 2009, Kelly invited Pace to his residence and sent an employee to pick her up in a black SUV. Upon her arrival at the controversial celeb's pad, Pace recalls: "He told me that he wanted me to undress for him [and] walk back and forth like I was modeling." The two then proceeded to have oral sex. After the sexual encounter, Jerhonda claims Kelly ordered her to sign documents claiming she had stolen jewelry and cash from him and that her parents forced her to blackmail him. Per Pace, none of these allegations were true. A few days later, the youngster returned and Kelly took her virginity. The underage Jerhonda was drunk at the time. Related: One Of R. Kelly's Victims Has Lawyered Up! Over the course of the next seven months, the industry vet continued a sexual relationship with the teen. On their bedroom escapades, Jerhonda relayed: "I had to call him ‘daddy,' and he would call me ‘baby.' He wanted me to have two pigtails, and I had to go out and find little schoolgirl outfits." It's said the 50-year-old filmed many of their XXX moments together without Jerhonda's permission. Ugh. By July 2009, Pace made Kelly aware of her real age. According to the supposed victim, Kelly assured her that it was fine, but advised her to lie about her age to others in their circle. Their relationship took a darker turn when Jerhonda started spending weekends with Kelly at his Olympia Fields home. Supposedly, Pace was forced to follow certain rules -- which included handing over her mobile device, wearing baggy clothes, asking permission to eat, go to the bathroom, leave the property, and/or shower -- and if she didn't follow these rules she was mentally and physically abused. When asked why she went along with the music legend's demands, Pace stated: "At the time, I didn't know what I liked, honestly. I just knew that I liked his music, so I was pretty much accepting of anything that came with him at the time." Not to mention, Pace spent time at the mansion alongside a 17-year-old friend. The unnamed pal still lives with Kelly to this day. After a few troubling instances, Pace decided to end her relationship with Kelly in 2010. Jerhonda reached out to Chicago lawyer Susan E. Loggans, as the powerhouse attorney was known for representing underaged women in lawsuits against R. Kelly. The once Kelly superfan chose to pursue a civil lawsuit rather than criminal charges as she felt the star would get off like he had in 2008. Within a matter of weeks, Loggans had negotiated a settlement for Pace, but there was a catch. The victim was required to sign a nondisclosure agreement and had to promise that she would not file criminal charges against the scandalized artist. Buzzfeed News claims to have reviewed all of the documents involved in the settlement. Kelly's legal team has since denied Pace's allegations as they noted in a statement: "The allegations against Mr. Kelly are false, and are being made by individuals known to be dishonest. It is clear these continuing stories are the result of the effort of those with personal agendas who are working in concert to interfere with and damage his career. Mr. Kelly again denies any and all wrong doing and is taking appropriate legal action to protect himself from ongoing defamation." Man, oh man. We're sure Kelly's PR and legal teams are scrambling right about now. [Image via WENN.].....»»

Katy Perry’s Angel Mobile Broke Down On Way To Met Gala

Last night's Catholic-themed Met Gala brought together all types of celebrities looking all kinds of delusional in their religious-inspired garb, but no one, and I do mean no one, looked like more of a jackass than Katy Perry. The event that was all but created specifically so that Kevin Spacey could finally bring along his ten-year-old boyfriends to a red carpet and blend in could have been interpreted in many creative ways. But I don't need to tell you that the words "Katy Perry" and "creative" are about as disparate as "Katy Perry" and "likeable in any capacity" and she flew into last night's Met Gala in a 90's Las Vegas angel showgirl costume for the failed production of Jesus Christ: Striptease. She looked, insane. The post Katy Perry’s Angel Mobile Broke Down On Way To Met Gala appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?.   Last night’s Catholic-themed Met Gala brought together all types of celebrities looking all kinds of delusional in their religious-inspired garb, but no one, and I do mean no one, looked like more of a jackass than Katy Perry.

She looked, insane. What made Perry’s failed attempt at couture even more hilarious is the fact that her grand entrance in the back of a vintage convertible was stalled, literally, when the vehicle broke down and Perry had to awkwardly stand there looking completely alone and tragic in her giant winged disaster. We would know without a doubt that there was a God if Perry then had to shuffle through the NYC subway in that thing to get to the Met Gala, but the vehicle started after a couple attempts and she continued her sad one-woman parade. Now fly away forever Perry.

Kelly Clarkson Reveals Why She Chose "The Voice" Over "American Idol"

Kelly Clarkson is looking like she’s having so much fun on the cover of Entertainment Weekly! Here’s what the singer had to share with the mag: On why she chose to be a coach on The Voice vs a judge on American Idol: “I want it to be a great experience for my whole family, [...] Kelly Clarkson is looking like she’s having so much fun on the cover of Entertainment Weekly! Here’s what the singer had to share with the mag: On why she chose to be a coach on The Voice vs a judge on American Idol: “I want it to be a great experience for my whole family, and that’s what I have to think about at this point in my life. We’re used to the Voice schedule, we already have to work around it because of our family. We have four children — that can be very taxing with a schedule. It was just a no-brainer for me with The Voice because of that alone. But my thing is, I was kind of bummed too when [Idol] came to me. I hope it’s super successful.” On if she’d ever return to Idol: “Would it have been awesome to come back to the show that started me and help give someone that start? Yes! But that doesn’t mean I can’t do the same thing on The Voice. That’s my goal. I want to have someone on my team, whether they win or not, to have a successful career after being on the show.” On how she is different from other Idol winners: “A lot of people that I know, especially from Idol, don’t necessarily want to be singers or artists; they just want to be famous,” she says. “That is not going to bring you happiness. And a lot of it falls through the cracks because people make decisions based on what they think will make them famous instead of what will be good for them. I don’t really care about being famous. … I’m not trying to impress anyone. I’m just me, and if you like that, cool. If you don’t, that’s totally cool too.” FYI: Kelly released two new songs today! Listen to “Move You” and “Love So Soft!” For more from Kelly, visit EW.com......»»
