Has anyone else been watching the hot mess that is American Idol this season? And if you have been watching, do your eyes and ears also regularly revolt against you by spontaneously catching fire?
So Ellen DeGeneres shocks the pop culture cognoscenti once again. The comedienne came out on the Oprah Winfrey show in the 1997 and this week officially erased Paula Abdul from the American Idol conversation. Seems like an okay choice–but we have 5 that would have been better. Caribou Barbie, anyone?
What we’ll miss most about Paula on ‘Idol’—her blissful ability to stand up and shake her aging booty to the tuneless stylings of the likes of Sanjaya Malakar then offer him incoherent but kind words of wisdom. Like the drunk aunt at the wedding who made the staid affair a little bit more interesting. . . .
