American Idol Judge Kara DioGuardi Outs Adam Lambert on The View


In an appearance on The View airing today, American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi outs Adam Lambert.

ABC News reports: "Asked by Barbara Walters whether Lambert's perceived sexuality may have influenced 'Idol' voters, DioGuardi said, 'Well, first of all, I hope not ... because we should be judging on talent and viability in the music industry and they both [Lambert and Allen] had that.' Either way, she said, 'I don't think that Adam [Lambert] was ever in [the closet],' DioGuardi continued. 'I think he was always openly out.'"

What we do know is that DioGuardi always openly wants attention.

Also, here's a high-larious interview with Lambert by Michelle Collins at Best Week Ever.

Kris Allen: 'I Want Man Chest Hair'

Allenkris #idol #krisallen

As long as we're on the topic of American Idol and hair, Idol winner Kris Allen told a reporter on Tuesday that if he could change one thing about himself, he'd like "man chest hair."

Via E!

REPORTER: "I read this really funny thing that you had said, if you could change one thing about yourself, you wish you had chest hair. So I wanted to hear a little more about it. Had you just never had it? Are you going to be getting transplants now that you are going to be making good, good money?"

KRIS ALLEN: "Well, you never know. I'm just kidding. But no, seriously. I do have a little bit. This is the weirdest question, by the way. But it's OK. This is a fun one. But it's really patchy and nasty looking. So I want man chest hair."

Last night, Jimmy Fallon had Kris Allen as his guest. Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

Atlanta Paper Posts Wrong Winner: 'Lambert Earns Idol Crown'


Actually, the real Idol winner, if you look at it from my perspective.

Thanks to reader Kenny for the screenshot of the Atlanta Journal Constitution's "Dewey Defeats Truman" moment. It was actually the fault of the AP, but AJC didn't get the correction until after they had announced Lambert as winner. As I mentioned yesterday, I don't think not winning Idol is going to cause any problems for Lambert at all.

Here's a post-show interview of Lambert from E!

E! Blogs are going to say, 'If he wins it's because he's gay, or if he loses it's because he's gay.' What do you think of that?

LAMBERT: Is that what they're gonna say? [Laughs] Those blogs have a lot of opinions, don't they? [Laughs] I think that Kris won because he's a great artist and I was happy to be a runner-up to that.

Adam Lambert and Kris Allen Don't Get Naked Together


As of last night, the former Idol mansion roommates had moved into their own spaces, according to Adam Lambert, in response to a reporter's question, "Who's sexier naked?"

Watch the post-finale press conference, AFTER THE JUMP...

Imho the whole finale pretty much stunk up the Nokia theater, and though I'm an Adam fan, I think Kris Allen may have taken the bulk of the votes that would have gone to Danny Gokey. I'm hoping for an Adam win, but I have a feeling Kris is going to pull it out. Lambert's already a star, anyway, so it doesn't really matter.

What do you think?

Watch the press conference, and Adam's performance of "A Change is Gonna Come", AFTER THE JUMP...
