oh my goodness! i just landed here in los angeles – i raced home as fast as i could to catch the big finale of american idol – and i’m THRILLED that my favorite david cook won! i was totally convinced little david archuleta was going to win – he’s a great singer but i find him to be completely boring – mr. cook for sure has an edge over him – and he managed to pull out the win in the end (i didn’t even get to vote last night – i planned to vote for david cook like crazy but i just couldn’t get to it) one of the best parts of the evening was george michael‘s stirring performance of praying for time (which moved paula adbul to tears of course) i so need to see him in concert when he swings by southern california! as for the final song of the evening the time of my life – i thought mr. cook did a superb job with it but overall i’m not so crazy about the song – have a listen over at popeater where the song just premiered!
anyways i’m really drained – the flight was ok – the funny thing was i spotted joey mcintyre (new kids on the block) with his wife barrett williams (wearing a huge rock on her finger) and their baby boy griffin thomas who for being only six months old was very well behaved – in fact they sat directly across from us in the same row! joey looks adorable in person – and his wife looks great for being a new mom and the baby was so damn cute – i couldn’t get over it – he was smiling at everything! after seeing adam levine & gisele bündchen – my pal joey and i were convinced we would run into someone else – since things tend to run in threes – and mr. mcintyre was our 3rd boston celeb sighting – how random! popbytes over & out for now…xxoo
