Simon Cowell Wanted To Keep Paula, Not Crazy About Elton John

Does Simon Cowell get whatever he wants? Not always, if you believe reports that he wanted to keep Paula Abdul as an “X Factor” judge.

In an interview with “Extra.” (via the Daily News) Cowell claims that it was FOX that wanted the changes and he would have preferred to keep Abdul on the show. “It was fairly straight what they wanted…  We were told it had to happen straightaway… I would have liked to have kept her.”

That said, lets not be so sure that Cowell wasn’t in support of the decision but wants to play nice publicly. Still, FOX is paying the bills for the high budget show – which is yet to gain the following that the network hoped.

Last week the show cut Abdul, judge Nicole Scherzinger and host Steve Jones, leaving just Cowell and record exec L.A. Reid as the remaining cast members. Then the rumor mill began about who could potentially come in as a replacement – and the notion that there was interest in someone BIG. Names like Mariah Carey, Beyonce and Elton John all got thrown around. Cowell has pretty much shot those rumors down for the time being.

 Asked about replacements, Cowell shot down a report that he’d offered Beyoncé $100 million to work on the show.

He rejected the idea of Mariah Carey coming aboard, too.

Regarding Mariah: “I have no idea where this rumor came from…“complete nonsense…I don’t think Mariah would make that commitment.”

Regarding the rumor that Beyonce would get $100 million. (I don’t think ANYONE believed that… no show could afford that.):  “Forget it; no, it would never, ever happen.”

And finally the Elton John rumor: “he’d be really difficult to work with.” Meow. But probably true.

Cowell didn’t say much else other than to say Madonna and Katy Perry could handle the show, because of their strong personalities. Hmm…

Dr. Phil Shaved Off His Mustache And Suddenly I Don’t Phil So Good

Published

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it…or shave it in this case.

Talk show host Dr. Phil is known for three things: Giving advice. A strong southern drawl. And an mustache so thick, it could have a milkshake named after it. I mean just take a look at that furried upper lip in all of it’s glory!

For as long as Dr. Phil has been on television he has that mustache, so you could imagine the worldwide hysteria that ensued when he posted a video with his stache slathered in shaving cream while holding a razor dangerously close to it. I mean…what could have inspired this sudden fit of rash behavior?!

He wouldn’t really go through with it though right? I mean no one likes change…right? Wrong! Here’s what the tv host looks like without his stache…and let’s just say, it is most certainly not what the doctor ordered!

After sharing his most traumatizing content since the “Cash Me Outside” girl, Dr. Phil posted this video insuring that the entire stunt was actually just an April Fool’s joke.

 

I’m definitely going to need some mood elevators to recover from this one! I love a makeover as much as the next guy, but some things are better left alone!

Is Miley Cyrus Bringing ‘Hannah Montana’ Back?!

Published

on

Miley Cyrus sure has been posting a lot about Hannah Montana lately….

It’s been 8 years since Miley Cyrus has given us the best of both worlds by slapping on that blond wig and becoming the tween-dream, Hannah Montana, so is she ready for a comeback? Last night Miley posted a marathon of tweets that have fans speculating a triumphant return of the Disney diva. Let’s examine, it started with this tweet wishing Lady Gaga a happy birthday:

Then this proclamation that Miley has decided to be Hannah forever!

An obvious throwback to Hannah’s biggest hit was necessary.

Well, idk if Disney would like to hear Hannah’s new definition of “Best Of Both Worlds”…

But she’s punk now so it’s par for the course I guess?

Maybe this is all an elaborate plan to release an album with Migos?

Well there’s no way of anticipating what to expect next, this is Miley after all. In the meantime, fans will just have to remain hopeful that there’s more Hannah Montana in the future!
