Ozzy disses Sanjaya and other Idol gossip
Ozzy reportedly called Sanjaya "a hairstyle-challenged idiot" and refused "be on stage with that idiot." Aerosmith's Joe Perry apparently had no problem appearing on stage with the infamous Sanjaya.
In other gossip, The National Enquirer is reporting that Britney Spears is being considered to replace Paula Abdul next year on American Idol.
According to the National Enquirer's Mike Walker, Randy Jackson will also be replaced in a major shake-up meant to deal with Idol's dwindling ratings. I doubt there's any truth to these rumors, y'all. But if Britney Spears does replace Paula, I'll shave my head, get a tattoo on my wrist, and go on a alcohol-and-Red-Bull-fueled binge in Hollywood sans underwear.
Speaking of Britney Spears, Simon Cowell told Good Morning America the same thing he said six months ago. Britney Spears needs to "go home" if she wants to save her career. Simon said, "She can't handle the tension and the pressure. Lock the door, don't go out with your stupid friends, have some home-cooked food, get a sense of reality. Go lie in the garden, OK? And then say to yourself, 'There's more good in my life than bad. I'm still a rich, talented girl - now I want to get my career back on track.' End of story."
Yeah, somehow I don't see Simon Cowell sitting next to Britney Spears next year. Britney makes Paula look stable, wise, and appropriately dressed.
Meanwhile, Ryan Seacrest is getting rave reviews for his scene-stealing cameo in Judd Apatow's hit comedy Knocked Up. Ryan plays himself in the film and spews some funny stuff about his career, Jessica Simpson, and the entertainment industry. I especially love when Ryan says, "I don't understand the young talent in this town ... It doesn't make any sense. I got four jobs - hell, I'm more famous than half the people we talk to anyway!"
Not that he needs anymore jobs, but it looks like Ryan can now add "movie star" to his resume. How long before he tries to go after Greg Kinnear's roles?
