Morning folks! We’ve got a serious American Idol hangover after kicking off Season 9 last night. And you know what cures a hangover? More of whatever made you ill in the first place, of course! More Idol dish in a bit, but first, let’s get to the mix!
Did You Hear?
:: Watch a short preview of the music video for Adam Lambert’s new single, “Whataya Want From Me.” As far as we can tell, there’s little leather and zero snakes, but we haven’t seen the remaining two and a half minutes of the full vid. Fingers crossed! [Best Week Ever]
:: Clipse’s former manager Anthony Gonzalez is facing a 32-year prison sentence for being the leader of a $20 million drug ring. Wow. Imagine how much bigger Clipse would be if he hadn’t had a side gig. [Hip Hop Wired]
:: Usher got robbed! More than $1 million in jewelry, furs and electronics were stolen out of his SUV. Ush—maybe next time just ride a bike and leave all your precious jewls and fancy rich man belongings at home, kay? [E! Online]
:: Thirteen-year-old Cymphonique (daughter of rapper Master P) has signed a record deal with Sony Music, is developing her own show at Nickelodeon, and just released a single called “Tell the DJ” that isn’t half bad. When I was 13, I was reenacting The Lion King in my basement with my stuffed animals. She wins. [Just Jared]
Behind the jump: The country group who beat out Lady Gaga for an AMA performs on Ellen, and we time-travel back to give one of 2000’s biggest hits a fresh listen.

VIDEO REWIND OF THE DAY: Ten years ago today, Christina Aguilera had the number one single with “What a Girl Wants,” a song that still holds up after a decade of dust-gathering. The accompanying music video kind of makes no sense—why exactly is she performing in a loft-style room loaded with arcade junk? And what’s the point of the quick cut to the cheap Marie Antoinette set? No matter. We’re just thankful X-Tina is returning with a new album in April.
(But seriously, this music video is a time capsule of questionable fashion choices leftover from the late 90s. So many fuzzy articles of clothing!)
Have a great day, everybody!
