"Idol" Record Execs: We're Into the Guys!

3/6/2008 2:58 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned the recording industry has no interest -- at least for now -- in the "American Idol" girls. Their focus is exclusively on two male contestants.

Well-connected record industry sources tell TMZ the major publishers (including Sony and Warner) have already set their sights on David Archuleta and David Hernandez. The record publishers have already told their songwriters to write songs specifically for David-squared, whether they win or not.

Sources say this is the earliest publishers have even committed to the contestants.


Brit Bodymen Smack Paps Down


It was a mad scene outside of Intermix yesterday, where the paps butted heads with Britney's security team as the popwreck left the Robertson Store.

After she celebrated her daddy's extended conservatorship with a shopping spree, Brit and her new beret tried to make it to her waiting SUV -- but couldn't get to it without her bodyguard strong-arming a few photogs to clear a path. TMZ tried to ask a few questions, but due to the insane camera crush, she didn't hear anything.

Hilton: Hybrid Hypocrite?


Paris Hilton has officially gone green -- she got herself an enormous mega-SUV -- but she's keepin' her infamous Bentley, too. Baby steps.

TMZ shot Paris and Benji rolling off the lot with a new GMC Yukon Hybrid yesterday, which gets a whopping 20 miles to the gallon. When we asked if she'd still be driving around in her other, less-energy efficient ride, she ignored the photog altogether.

Al Gore, you got company.

Mary Tyler Moore: 'Memba Her?!


Mary Tyler Moore is famous for playing the quintessential single working woman on her self-titled '70s series,"The Mary Tyler Moore Show," as well as Dick Van Dyke's wife on the '60s series, "The Dick Van Dyke Show." Guess what she looks like now!

The Britney video was disturbing; clear proof that laws need to be passed, and that the only good paparrazi is a dead one. They should be allowed to be shot on sight, and i don't mean with a camera.

It's disgusting at how the paparazzi is acting in this video. To actually swarm around someone like that and make it nearly impossible for her to even walk is just totally ridiculous. If it weren't for her bodyguards, she wouldn't have been able to get to her car. Something needs to be done about the paparazzi. They need to have laws against this kind of behavior. They're doing nothing but stalking her.

I AGREE ALL PAPS SHOULD BE TAKEN OUT TO A DESERT LOCATION, HAVE A COUPLE CAMERAS FLASHED IN THEIR FACES, THEN SHOT DEAD.

THEY ARE OUT OF CONTROL, THERE SHOULD BE A LAW FOR ALL OF THEM!!!

That is so ridiculous how the paps won't even let her out of the store to get to her car. And the friend that she had with her, it looked like she got knocked down or something. I would probably be going crazy too if I was hounded the way she is.

Last night was crazy. Simon said Amanda sang the best in the competition so far??? You can tell Simon was just saying that. Simon you don't have a good poker face! Amanda stank and will go home tonight. Other than that and Luke the previous night, they all sang really well this week!

just me    

maybe her body gaurds should start getting names of the paps so she can get restraining orders against them atleast it would make it a little harder for them and might spook them with jail

I think Brit is looking so much better- her outfit choices are getting really cute again. Brit seems to be getting her act together and I will be the first one to laugh at all you horrible small-minded perv's out there who are wanting her to f'up. You go girl!

what a bitch.    

Britney sure does look pregnant. Either that or she's just a little bloated. She looks good but can someone please buy her some new boots? a different color maybe? Anyway, that's no way to treat britney's best friends.
