    Hmmm ... am wondering if Pharoah finds Alicia 'unfortunate' in the looks department ... or Mandy Moore for that matter???
    Of course I don't find Alicia Keys and Mandy Moore unfortunate in the looks department! They just aren't very bright.
    for me!

    Again, I'm not trying to put you on the spot, but I'm very curious why folks do the things they do.
    I donated a few bucks to the Bice Squad to send a gift basket, or whatever to Bo. There were thousands of members, so I think they raised a lot of money. Out of the money they raised they also sent donations to Bo's favourite charities. No, I wasn't out shopping and trying to send Bo a special gift just from me.

    I don't think the Bice Squad is the only fan club to do this sort of thing. I remember how touched Katharine was that her fan clubs sent her 1,000 roses.

    I can't find the post ... but someone posted that Taylor's fans sent him ONE rose ... and used the money collected to buy phones to vote for him and then donated the phones ... to a woman's shelter I think.

    Um ... speaking of bright people and bright ideas ... nothing like maximizing the usefulness and reach of the collected funds !

Great interview with Rolling Stone ... finally an interview that doesn't ask the bland and boring aka how did you feel ... was it good to prove Simon wrong ... blah blah blah. They actually get into his taste in music ... and he is quite the music afficiando:

    I listened to this one. It's a terrific interview - it's the only one out there that doesn't ask the same questions over and over again.

    And you know this for a fact because you have a direct line to the Producers and they told you, right?

    Hmmm...I'd say it's the other way around. They kept Taylor around, because of his many talents. Kat was like a "sidekick".

    Just a reminder that Taylor is on Ellen today. His interview seemed kind of short IMO. He sang and sounded great.

    Remember that Ellen's show is syndicated. You have to check local listings for both time and channel.
    Dogs have owners. Cats have staff. ;-D

    He does a nice interview with Ellen and says that he thought it was going to be Chris to the end. He said Chris' elimination came to a shock to everyone and that he was sad to see him go.

    IMO Taylor looks really tired. I hope he gets some much needed rest soon
