If "American Idol" is desperate to fill its judging panel with basket cases who will get people to tune in hoping to see a train wreck, this might be the break they need. On Monday, "Idol's" executive producer Nigel Lythgoe joked that he wanted Charlie Sheen. Well, it turns out Charlie is interested. "It seems so out of the blue that it almost made perfect sense. I thought this could be a lot of fun. Seriously. I'm genuinely interested. It's so different, it could be radical." He doesn't have any music experience, but Ellen DeGeneres didn't either and she judged one season of "Idol". On Monday, on "The Tonight Show", Charlie told Jay Leno that if he was a judge, "I think I could be helpful and give these kids some guidance without leading them to a suicide." Jay responded, "Yeah, if I had a child that needed guidance, I would send him to Charlie Sheen." His two demands would be that FX and his "Anger Management" team "would have to be into it" and there would need to be a charitable component to him taking the job.
Kris Humphries signed a reported $24 million contract with the Brooklyn Nets, and it has him feeling pretty cocky. Kris is in the middle of a messy divorce from Kim Kardashian, but he aimed right at his soon-to-be ex's current boyfriend, Kanye West. After signing with the team, Kris went to Twitter to announce his good news and took a shot at Kanye: "I'm up at Brooklyn! @S_C_ "lucky I didn't have Jay drop me from the team" lol!" He’s clearly making reference to one of Kanye’s lyrics from the song "Way Too Cold", where Kanye refers to his romance with Kim and threatens to use his close friendship with Nets co-owner Jay-Z to have Humphries dropped from the team: "And I'll admit, I had fell in love with Kim/Around the same time she had fell in love with him/ Well that's cool, baby girl, do ya thang/ Lucky I ain't had Jay drop him from the team." So far Kanye, who is often very vocal on Twitter, hasn't responded to the dig.
Are you ready for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in your living room? It looks like the couple are getting closer to their own reality show. Perhaps “Kim & Kanye Take…The World”? An insider says that Kim and Kanye want a show to focus on their adventures in the world of fashion and music, “The cameras will follow the couple as they travel around the world, primarily in London, Paris, Italy and New York. They want to show the plush life of Kim & Kanye.” Kim’s mom Kris Jenner thinks Kim should focus more on fashion and develop a line with Kanye, since he is so heavily involved in that world. Kris thinks this would bring in huge ratings. And considering the Kardashian family has a $40 million deal with E!, they could use something that would deliver the return the network is looking for. The source says, “Apparently Kanye loves the idea! Kris is hoping Kanye’s famous friends like Jay Z and Beyonce would be ok being filmed for certain segments.” Kanye really likes Kris, so he will try and make her happy. Both Kim and Kanye love the camera and love the attention. No word on how soon this could all go down.
Three weeks ago, Walmart started a promotion where Pitbull would visit whatever Walmart store in the U.S. got the most "Likes" on its Facebook page. A writer named David Thorpe, who writes for the "Boston Phoenix" thought it would be funny if the Internet teamed up to send Pitbull to the most remote Walmart possible. So he rallied his readers to "like" the page for the Walmart store in Kodiak, Alaska. And Thorpe's readers responded. The Kodiak Walmart page ended up with more than 70,000 likes, which was more than enough to win the contest and now, Walmart kept its word. Pitbull is heading to Kodiak, Alaska. All things considered, he took the prank pretty well, "I heard that Kodiak, Alaska has the most likes due to someone who thinks he was playing a prank. But you gotta understand, I'll go anywhere in the world for my fans." He also invited Thorpe to go with him, and Thorpe accepted the offer. They'll be headed to Alaska at the end of the month.
