1. We and the E! Network might stop talking about Heidi and Spencer. The hourglass has about run out on the Pratts’ vacuous run. Al Roker votes yea, but sometimes Speidi are fun for all the wrong reasons. So get your vote in on theblockfm.com and on eonline.com so to state your case before a final ruling is announced Monday night during E! News.
2. David Letterman threw himself under the bus and offered up a more sober apology to Sarah Palin, who accepted the Late Show host’s kinder mea culpa. Palin is SO good at making herself SEEM so important…seems she and the Pratts should have a pow-wow.
3. The next episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 will feature a “special announcement.” We’re thinking divorce, but isn’t that what TLC wants us to think? Won’t we feel silly when it turns out they’re just planning a trip to Mall of America or something.
4. A couple of cops in Ohio are being investigated for allegedly breaking into the home of the woman who’s carrying Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick’s baby in order to dig up tabloid dirt. For God’s sake, now the po-po’s are turning paparazzi?
6. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie made for all sorts of good news this past week, as they donated $1 million each to a cancer center and refugees in Pakistan, and then Angie took to the airwaves to bring us up to speed on where she’s coming from with her humanitarian heart.
5. Chace Crawford is People’s Hottest Bachelor of 2009. Do you agree? There’s a picture on our blog at http://www.theblockfm.com …get your comments in.
6. Adam Lambert is really pissed. Adam Lambert has an album coming out — and he’s not happy!
A small record label called Hi-Fi Recordings/Wilshire Records is releasing On With the Show, an album filled with material the American Idol runner-up reportedly co-wrote and recorded before his run on the hit TV talent show.
John Hecker, the CEO of Hi-Fi, says the the music is incredible — and insists that releasing the unofficial record is completely legal. “We would never put anything out that wasn’t fully owned by the parties involved with all the rights secured. We were really careful,” he said.
Lambert — who is currently working on his debut album with 19 Recordings/RCA records — does not condone the release. “The work I did back then in no way reflects the music I am currently in the studio working on,” he said.
“Back in 2005 when I was a struggling artist, I was hired as a studio singer to lend my vocals to tracks written by someone else. I was broke at the time and this was my chance to make a few bucks, so I jumped at the opportunity to record for my first time in a professional studio.
“I’m thrilled to be working with some of today’s hottest songwriters and producers and can’t wait for people to hear what my music really sounds like.”
Lambert’s debut with RCA Records is expected to hit stores this fall.
