Kelly Clarkson offered fans a few hints about her forthcoming album, slated to drop sometime early this year.
The singer revealed several clues on her Twitter account on Jan. 3, confirming that genre-wise, it will land in the realm of pop. "People keep asking. My next album is pop. But I am always influenced by music I love, which is pop- rock/country/r&b/dance #whoknowswhatsnext," she tweeted.
It was 10 years ago that modern rock band Fountains of Wayne scored a hit single with “Stacy’s Mom." Today, the song lives on thanks to AmericanIdol alum CaseyAbrams, who gives the radio favorite a jazzy twist.
Abrams re-imagined the song on YouTube channel Postmodern Jukebox, adding a ragtime feel, melodica, tinkering piano keys, scatting and a cool handoff of the bass to Adam Kubota.
Twilight actress Nikki Reed has had her divorce from ex-American Idol contestant Paul McDonald finalized and the pay-off is rather sweet, according to TMZ.
As part of the settlement, Reed is to gain three houses, three cars and a dog — a German Shepherd named Enzo — following the end of their two-and-a-half-year marriage. McDonald, on the other hand, receives the one-time couple's Nashville home.

AdamLambert always maintained that in his role as touring frontman for Queen, he wasn't emulating the late Freddie Mercury. But when it comes to vocal skills, the American Idol season-eight star can more than hold his own, said Queen guitarist BrianMay in a recent interview, noting that there are some things Lambert brings that even Mercury couldn’t do live.
Weeks before American Idol returns to its 14th season on Fox, the pan-Middle Eastern edition of the show has just crowned its latest winner.
