Frank Ocean was arrested on New Years Eve in Mono County, California for speeding and pot possession. He was driving a black BMW.
Ocean was arrested for going 90 mph in a 65 mph zone. When pulled over, the officer smelled pot coming from the vehicle. When Ocean was searched, a small amount of marijuana was found on the R&B singer.
Ocean was let go without being arrested as long as his passenger in his car drove him home. The weed along with Ocean's license was taken from him.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Green Matter...not Pink Matter this time....
Randy Jackson, Keith Urban, Ryan Seacrest, Mariah Carey, & Nicki Minaj remained united for a Hollywood Reporter story on the American Idol judges.
Seacrest stood between Mariah and Minaj who have not been getting along with each other during auditions and despite reports, we are sure producers are hoping for fireworks between the 2 judges instead of hoping for a talented top 10 finalists.
Jackson gave his usual rhetoric that there will be "at least 4 contestants" that will have big careers because of Idol. Urban spoke that he wants to help contestants get rid of the cheese around them to find the true musical talent they have. Yea, like ditching a cowboy hat, wearing tight open shirts, and marry a Hollywood actress.
Mariah talked about how Idol went about approaching her for the job. We wish someone would have asked if it would have been smarter to wait to see who the other judges were before signing on and if she had any regrets:
"I was on the fence about the whole thing. I got approached by all the shows. He [her husband, Nick Canon] said I should do it because it's the top, it's the cream of the crop. And I felt like, 'Do the show that's produced massive stars who have had major careers.' I know everyone's like, 'We can't have schmaltzy answers,' Well guess what? Some people still want to be inspired. Some people need to have that kind of validation and to feel like, if this person did it, then I can. And I do have one of those stories."
Minaj talked about why she was picked a judge and how she never pictured to be in the limelight like she is now. Ahem:
"[There's] a judgmental culture in hip-hop. Sometimes you are afraid of being too famous because it's almost, like, is that even cool? Being that accessible, someone you see on TV every week? I never pictured myself as that type of person. I'm still surprised that I decided to do it."
Aside from The Voice, ratings for the other singing shows have went down. With Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo leaving that show, it may be in the same boat. The shows rarely focus on the talent but more on the star of the judge.
Who can name the last winner of X Factor or the past 3 winners of Idol? Thought so.-DocFB
Diagnosis: The 12 Season of "American Idol" kicks off on January 16th.
Kelly Clarkson has lost over 30 pounds and in next month's issue of Cosmo, she reveals that she lost it for her man.
"I think that happens when you fall in love or date someone. If I'm going to be messing around, I gotta look good."
Kelly also talked about her work out routine and portion control:
"I was working with a trainer. You'd be amazed the amount of weight you can drop by halving your portions. I know it sounds crazy, but do it for two weeks and watch what happens.' I just cut back my portions, I stopped eating late at night, and I work out a little more than I used to, and I literally dropped 18 pounds in a month. I think it happens when you get really busy. But when I'm on my off-time -- girl, those 18 might come back!"
18 pounds in a month? That is a lot for a girl to lose in a month. Am I wrong?
Kelly also states that she is not obsessed with her weight:
"I'm willing to work a little bit because I want to be a healthy individual -- which I always have been. I've put on weight, but that's just what I'm happy with at that moment."
If anything, it seems the media and others have been worried more about her weight than she has been.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Congrats Kelly on the weight loss and your upcoming wedding!
