I think Ashton can pull off playing Jobs, he's a good actor who's chosen some cheesy roles but he's capable, was excellent in the Butterfly Effect

The Sharpton/Jackson racist money grab is on. But don't fear. American Idol and The Biggest Loser will live on through the NFL Draft TV show.

Kim should give her HUSBAND the annulment and move on with her unborn bastard and creepy psychologically demented douche bag boyfriend and live narcissistically ever after.

Has anybody noticed the resemblance between Paul Ryan and Anthony Weiner other than they are both WEINERS?

Please, the only one running up legal bills is Kim Kardashian. She's delayed the required financial disclosures and deposition, which he did long, long ago. Give him the annulment, Kimmie, he deserves it, you're still slamming him in your fakey reality shows rather than just doing what the court requires.

Idol does exploit black singers. Those who can sing but don't have the qualities or look for Idol's demographics and advertisers are thrown out, deeming them as "destructive stereotypes". Yes, 3 black people may have won on this fake show but take a close look at their "careers".
