Katharine McPhee

Leaves the Dark Side

9/18/2009 2:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"American Idol" wannabeen Katharine McPhee took a break from making music nobody listens to and picked up the peroxide and a pair of scissors.

Katharine McPhee
The fifth season runner-up debuted her new blond bob last night at the Ann Taylor runway show in NYC.

It's the most exciting thing she's done since finishing second place to Taylor Hicks.

Poor PattisPage aka Rosie. No matter how psychotic and vile you are, stalking Katharine all over the internet, her career just keeps getting better and better. New record label that really loves her. New album coming out in January that is getting rave reviews. New movie in the new year that is going to have a soundtrack featuring McPhee. Numerous TV appearances scheduled for the new year. Spring tour already being planned. And everyone who meets her just loves her and thinks she is the sweetest person ever. This must all just burn you up.

We wouldn't know if she'd be a better blonde until a professional dyes her hair! Look at all those roots!

Katherine McPhee is a natural brunette and looks obviously fake with the blond. It's not "bad", it's just not her best, most beautiful look. When you see her blond, you start thinking, "Wow, I wonder how much work it was to make her hair THAT blond", instead of her brunette look, when you can simply see how great she looks.

I always think of Catherine Zeta-Jones in this manner, as well. She'd look beautiful in any haircolor, but she's BEST with her dark hair, and I think she'd be less stunning as a blond. This is coming from me, a dark-haired girl who tried the blond look and basically looked washed-out.

Maybe just because you dont listen to it doesnt mean others dont everyone has different tastes in music but you dont have to knock entertainers even if you only are joking.

Leave her alone. Nobody wants to listen to today's rap, hip hop, grunge, emo, psycho music from Generation Suck. Cashbox went out of business way back in the mid 90s, so nobody wants to listen to today's audio noise.

I wish her dye job had been better, if she's going to go platinum she has to go all the way. You can't have those partially dark roots with that color. Her hairstyle doesn't look very flattering in that photo, but I think a bob could work for her. Although I'm not sure how a bob could make her stand out these days. She just needs to fix the color. It also looks kind of dry, I wonder if a professional actually did that to her. That said, I prefered her as a brunette.
