Vegas Odds: Which Idol Does America Hate The Most?

Question: Which Idol Does America Hate The Most?

Body Text: Welcome to Vegas Odds, our silly take on serious betting. First wager: Which American Idol is next to go? If you think you understand the fickle taste of this sorry nation, then place your bets now.
(I’m still upset it sent my lovely Pia packing instead of getting rid of Casey Abrams’ scary mug.) For our inaugural game we’re giving Haley Reinhart, a.k.a. The Fake Growler, 2/1 odds that America will kick her ass to the curb. In part because she’ll never live down that lipstick smear incident. And we’re giving James Durbin 25/1 odds. Let’s face it, he’s the second coming of Adam Lambert. But if you bet on him and I’m wrong… SCORE! You’ll RULE this game! Please keep in mind no money or goods are exchanged in the playing of Vegas Odds, ever. This game is for bragging rights only. All bets are 10 points. We’ll give you 50 points to start and keep a running tally of your score over the weeks, months, and yes, dear readers, even the years. The top 5 most brilliant players will always be featured in our sidebar. For those who don’t have much in the way of pop culture smarts, you can never go below 10 points. We’re nice like that.

Frisking Random 6-Year-Old Girls At Airports Very Necessary

The outrage continues to grow after a video of a little girl getting thoroughly patted down at a New Orleans airport was posted by her parents a couple of days ago. Dr. Todd Drexel (hereinafter referred to as Daddy) told Good Morning America:

“Afterward, she broke down crying, because she really didn’t understand what she had done wrong. We were struggling to explain it to her, because we had really stressed to her that it’s not OK to be touched in certain places, and now she’s been pat down in a public setting.”

Boo hoo, daddy. BWE.tv will remain silent no longer. This is an important matter of national security. Should we all just roll over and let the drug smugglers and terrorists win? Do you know how many kilos of cocaine can be stuffed into one overnight Huggies Max diaper? Daddy, do you realize how easy it would be to use one baby’s poo-poo diaper as some kind of fertilizer-based improvised explosive device? And we’ve only talked babies! The larger frame of a nearly adolescent 6-year-old girl could provide room enough for Lord knows what!

Sexiest Lady In Red At The 2011 Oscars?

Four major Hollywood actresses heated up the 2011 Oscars red carpet by wearing red gowns. Co-host Anne Hathaway (in Valentino) and Sandra Bullock (in Vera Wang) both look classically sexy in strapless numbers with modest trains and matching red lipstick. Presenter Jennifer Hudson, in a Versace gown that’s more blood-orange than blood-red, went with a retro updo and cat eyes. But it was relative newbie Jennifer Lawrence who may have turned the most heads, possibly because her tight-fitting red Calvin Klein gown is the polar opposite from her Winter’s Bone look. E! fashion commentator Kelly Osbourne called it the sexiest dress of the entire awards season. And the Oscar for Sexiest Lady in Red goes to …

Exclusive Video: Katy Perry & Nicki Minaj Duet At VH1 Divas

VH1 Divas Salute the Troops taped Friday night in front of thousands of pumped-up marines and their families at a military base in San Diego. HOORAH! And while the show doesn’t air until tonight (Dec. 5), we got our hands on an exclusive sneak peek of one of the most highly anticipated duets: Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj doing “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.”  NOTE to all you Nicki fans, this sneak does NOT have Nicki in it. You’ll have to tune in to the actual show to see how Nicki does Cyndi Lauper proud.

Although Nicki’s not in this clip, we can say that she generated a massive amount of buzz when she took the stage in her Lady Gaga-esque blond wig. The marines definitely love them some Katy & Nicki in tight mini-skirts and high heels. HOORAH! We can also say Katy and Nicki have great on-stage chemistry.

SPOILER ALERTS: In addition to the duet, Katy performs “California Gurls” and “Firework” and Nicki performs “Right Thru Me.” She performed “Moment 4 Life” and “Roman’s Revenge” for the troops, but those won’t make it on TV. Nicki Minaj also won’t be in the VH1 Divas opening act, as we previously reported. Watch VH1 Diva Salute the Troops tonight at 9/8c.

EXCLUSIVE: The VH1 Divas’ Opening Number With Katy Perry, Keri Hilson & Nicki Minaj

Watch VH1 Divas Sunday, Dec. 5 at 9/8c!

We were able to snag some raw footage from VH1 Divas Salute the Troops while watching rehearsals last night at a military base in San Diego, and we’re happy to be able to give you this spoiler: The show will open with a hot rendition of the WWII-era megahit “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.” The number features Katy Perry, Keri Hilson, Nicki Minaj (although she’s not in this clip), and Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland.

This isn’t the first time that the iconic song has been revamped — En Vogue did a short R&B version in 1990 and Christina Aguilera’s “Candyman” is a tribute to the Andrew Sisters, who first released the song in 1941. But after watching the VH1 Divas performers rehearsing, we’re convinced it’ll be the most mind-warping take on it yet!

We can’t give away too many details, but suffice it to say the opener will take viewers from an ultra close copy (think very sexy retro!) of the original to a beat-heavy version that makes Nicki Minaj’s rap style feel right at home. We can also say we’re 100 percent confident that the troops will eat this act up. These four Divalicious women, who’ll be shakin’ it in white and gold mesh corset dresses that barely reach their thighs, kill the song and look amazing while doing it. To see the full act in all of its glory, watch VH1 Divas Sunday, Dec. 5 at 9/8c and get updates while the show tapes tonight on TheFABlife’s twitter account.

Spoiler Alert #2: This won’t be the only unusual pop/rap hybrid in the show — stay tuned for a duet by MC Lyte and country band Sugarland.

Be sure to catch VH1 Divas Sunday, Dec. 5 at 9/8c!

Exclusive Look At VH1 Divas’ Opener With Katy Perry, Keri Hilson And Nicki Minaj

Exclusive Look At Paramore’s VH1 Divas Gig

While this video isn’t exactly a performance,  it’s the first actual footage to be released that will air as part of VH1 Divas Salute the Troops — and it gives a good hint as to the show’s overall scope and tone. What we learn is that the Divas’ salute to the troops isn’t just lip service. While the show is headquartered at the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego (i.e., Top Gun land), Paramore performs at a real-life military base in Kuwait.

And Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams‘ pep talk to the troops comes off as genuinely sincere. “I don’t want you to ever forget how much we appreciate what you’re doing,” says Hayley, wearing a sparkling blue bodysuit (eye candy in the middle of the desert!). “When we go back home, you’re not forgotten. We think about you guys all the time and we love you guys.”

Watch the clip above to see the troops eating it up. Bragging rights to anyone who can guess the song Paramore starts to perform. Hint: We’re pretty sure Hayley mentions part of the title in her speech. VH1 Divas Salute the Troops will feature performances by Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Keri Hilson and more. It airs Sunday, Dec. 5 at 9/8c.
