Earlier this week, it was reported that Madonna was spending $5 million of her own money on her Billboard Awards performance. As we saw last night, the money was for the tech – several Madonna holograms appeared alongside the “real” Madonna before bursting into digital confetti and…well…that’s Madonna, she’s always trying to try something new. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The Billboard Music Awards are happening tonight. These awards don’t really matter so, really, if you’re watching, it’s because of the performances. Taylor Swift is opening the show. Madonna is performing with Maluma.  Read Full Intro

Thank you, Paula Abdul

I want you to join me in being thankful for what Paula gave us last night. I want you to be thankful that someone came to give us the fun. To give us some pure joy. To remind us that these nights, they are for entertainment, for OUR entertainment. They tell you they want to celebrate their achievements, but they’re incapable of celebrating them without an audience. Full Story

This is, so far, what the US version of The X Factor is for me. The judges and the host are featured on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter. First thing I fixated on was that weird blonde stripe that seems to be running up Simon Cowell’s head. Is it bad lighting? Why didn’t they fix it? This is making me crazy. Full Story

Earlier this week, Paula Abdul made headlines for an interview with Ladies Home Journal during which she allegedly admitted, finally, to being addicted to prescription pills for chronic back pain and had to detox in rehab – revealing she could have killed herself the withdrawal sucked so hard. Needless to say, it came as no surprise. Full Story

Worst Grammy Hair: Paula Abdul

She could qualify for worst everything actually but we’ll spread the hate around and focus, for now, on the 6 story apartment building attached to her head – a flagrant violation of the laws of proportion, if such a thing exists. And if it doesn’t, it should. The problem is that the updo is the same size as her face, and since she’s only, like, 5 feet tall, it’s also almost the same size as her body. Full Story

When reality can no longer be counted on on reality tv, thank Xenu for a babbling fool like Paula Abdul. She’s always good for unscripted drama. Unscripted drama is the smutty best. Big news this morning – last night on American Idol, the contestants performed twice. Due to a tight timeline, judging only happened after all competitors had delivered their first songs. Full Story

This HAS to happen. It HAS to. TV Guide columnist, the brilliant Michael Ausiello, is reporting that Paula Abdul will perform at the Superbowl. And that it will be LIVE. Apparently Paula cut a new song with fellow judge Randy Jackson and has been rehearsing a new video. Even though it’s been years since Paula’s been anything but a judge on American Idol, even though on American Idol she can barely string together a sentence, even though she’s loopy as sh*t… Paula Abdul, in front of millions and millions of people, on US television’s biggest night, will take the stage. Full Story
