E on the Z


Friday, July 20

Sometimes writers that are reviewing music have to review records they don't like and even artists they don't like. Chad Taylor, a music writer for Des Moines, Iowa's alternative weekly Cityview has joined this list with his six-word review of (convicted Rihanna assaulter) Chris Brown's new Fortune album. His review? "Chris Brown hits women. Enough said."

We just told you earlier this week that Game and his fiance Tiffney Cambridge are shooting a reality show following their wedding. Unfortunately, none of that will happen now. The wedding has officially been called off. Their wedding was scheduled for next Saturday, July 28th. But the show is out. The wedding is off. And the relationship is over.

They found love on "American Idol." Jessica Sanchez and DeAndre Brackensick are dating. She is 16, he is 17. Jessica finished 2nd during "Idol" Season 10, he finished 8th. They are currently on tour with the rest of the Top 10. Jessica was signed to Interscope Records and is home schooled. DeAndre just graduated in May. I seriously think "American Idol" might surpass "The Bachelor" franchise in successful relationships. That's just ridiculous.

The Emmy nominations for 2012 were released yesterday. As usual, HBO got the most nominations of any network, with 81.  CBS got 60 nominations. And thanks to the Emmy-voter obsession with "Downton Abbey", PBS came in third with 58. For the first time ever, there were no shows from broadcast networks nominated for Outstanding Drama Series. As far as snubs are concerned, here we go: There are four actors who should be the most surprised they were left out of the nominations. Nick Offerman from "Parks and Recreation", Madeline Stowe from "Revenge", Joel McHale from "Community", and Hugh
from the final season of "House M.D." For the first time since the category was created, "American Idol" was not nominated for Outstanding Reality-Competition Series. "The Voice" took its slot along with the other shows that get nominated every year. However, Jeff Probst didn't get a nomination for best reality host, Betty White took his traditional spot for "Betty White's Off Their Rockers". There's officially been a changing of the guard in late night. Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy KimmelJon Stewart and Stephen Colbert were nominated while Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien, and even David Letterman were not.
