'Warm Bodies': Which supernatural is right for you?

It’s time for Mystery Date: Supernatural Edition! While the whole vampire craze may be drawing to a close (Twilight: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 comes out on DVD March 2) 2013 is still on track to be a huge year for those that love the supernatural. Apologies to viewers who enjoy their zombies more in the style of Walking Dead, but it’s looking like the biggest trend is more romance, less death and destruction. Warm Bodies, in theaters today, centers around a love story between zombie R. and a human, Julie. It’s a great read – and surprisingly, in between the killing and the brain eating, a wonderfully original and charming boy-ish meets girl tale.

Which got us thinking: Readers probably have their personal favorites when it comes to the guys that portray these vampires, zombies, and werewolves (Ian Somerhalder, Robert Pattinson, Alexander Skarsgard, etc.) But what if we took the actors out of it? Based solely on the plotlines in the current books/movies/television shows, which supernatural should you, a “normal” human with a slight love on danger, attempt to begin a relationship with? The answer may surprise you – or help you justify a couple all-too-real conversations about an alleged hypothetical situation (ahem).

Zoanette Johnson: Really, 'American Idol'?! Behold a 'Star-Spangled Banner' mess -- VIDEO

Screen Shot 2013-01-31 at 9.20.43 PM

During Thursday’s Oklahoma City auditions episode (read my full recap here), colorful wackaloon Zoanette Johnson, “19,” brutally murdered the national anthem to the unfathomable delight of the American Idol judges, her pitchy runs eventually knocking featherweight pleasure hub Keith Urban onto the floor. At least she didn’t lip-sync it? READ FULL STORY

Beyonce-gate 2013: Sen. Schumer still has not received apology

We’re now a week out from Beyoncé-gate, but more victims are still coming forward.

Today’s individual? New York Senator Chuck Schumer, who was seen grinning and applauding behind Bey during her inauguration performance. Schumer is credited as the person who actually got Beyoncé and Jay-Z to show up at the inauguration, which he was in charge of planning.

Sen. Schumer told the New York Post this morning that the singer still hasn’t apologized to him personally. “I have not heard from her before, during or after,” Schumer said after he was asked if Beyoncé had called him to give a musical mea culpa. “She did not talk to me at all. I didn’t say any words to her, period.” READ FULL STORY

Beyonce Super Bowl set list reportedly leaks. What do you want to hear at halftime?

With the inauguration and Beyoncé-gate behind us, (Right? We’ve all moved on?) Countdown to Touchdown can officially commence – and that means plenty of speculation about what Queen Bey will be performing for her big Super Bowl show.

Us Weekly published a leaked set list, which says Bey will open the show with “Crazy In Love,” then midway through, be joined by Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams for a Destiny’s Child mini-set that will include “Bills, Bills, Bills” and “Survivor,” as well as new song/kind of snoozefest “Nuclear.” Those ladies will then disappear and Beyoncé will continue being Beyoncé for a few more minutes. A rep for Beyoncé did not return EW’s request for comment. READ FULL STORY

'American Idol': Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey wage shade-throwing war in Baton Rouge

It’s hard to pick a winner here — both grown women reached such stunning levels of immaturity throughout tonight’s Baton Rouge auditions episode. I’m going with Mariah, for at least having the decency to direct her shade at her target of loathing with a tremendous side-eye, while Nicki opted to draw the contestant into her ongoing epic battle to take down one of the top-selling female artists in history. Subtlety is everything. READ FULL STORY

'American Idol': Nicki Minaj-Mariah Carey brawl sparked by disagreement over 'country thing'

After weeks of breathless, pearl-clutching promotion for the infamous Nicki Minaj vs. Mariah Carey fight, tonight’s American Idol revealed what prompted Minaj’s freakout in the first place. The Charlotte auditions episode featured a somewhat rational debate (prompted by Minaj) on whether a contestant should feel “forced” to “do the country thing,” and then we saw Minaj determinedly stomping off the set after complaining that “Maybe I should get off the f—ing panel.”

What we didn’t see, of course, was a single second of Minaj’s cringe-inducing motormouth-y rant captured in October’s buzz-magnet handheld video. In fact, it’s likely the “fight” we saw tonight had no real linear connection with the leaked footage, which makes the over-promotion even more obnoxious. Fox chose to save face — including any of that leaked footage on-air would be a huge turnoff, and Minaj has enough detractors as it is. READ FULL STORY

'American Idol': Your thoughts on the premiere of 'The Nicki Minaj Show'?

Update: Annie’s recap is live

It’s no wonder a camera “just happened” to capture the now infamous Nicki Minaj vs. Mariah Carey brawl — after watching the two-hour season 12 premiere, it’s clear the two new American Idol judges can’t stand each other. This is never going to change, and it’s super uncomfortable to watch because both women are acting like they’re 5. Instead of coolly rising above their differences (when in actuality: THEY’RE THE SAME), they talk over each other until eventually Minaj wins because she’s simply louder and more obnoxious. At one point, Minaj plastered on one of her 31 flavors of fake smile and monotoned “She’s a bitch she’s a bitch she’s a bitch” ad nauseum. How many people are tuning in to a singing competition to see something like this? I’m guessing one — and she’s pictured above, mimicking how the majority of viewers probably looked while they watched her. READ FULL STORY

'Vote for the Worst' 'Idol' website shutting down

If you know who Sanjaya is, the website you have to “thank” is shutting down.

Vote for the Worst, a website started in 2004 encouraging fans of American Idol to vote for the worst contestant to bring about the end of the show, is coming to its own end. To quote its creator Dave’s own post announcing the shut down:  “They say when your critics stop talking about you, you’re finished. We’ve been American Idol’s biggest critic, but we’re leaving before we get completely bored with a show that really should’ve bowed out gracefully a few years ago.”

The site won’t actually be gone until June 2013, so fans have one more season to try to purposely get a joke all the way to the crown. READ FULL STORY

Should Britney Spears leave 'The X Factor'?

Screen Shot 2012-12-28 at 12.45.46 PM

Rumors have it that Britney Spears — along with Demi Lovato — will be asked to step down from her X Factor judging seat by next fall’s season 3. But it’s all just anonymous-source gossip for now — as a Fox spokesperson told EW, “No one has discussed next years judging panel yet; any reports otherwise are complete speculation.”

I don’t think Britney Spears is the only reason The X Factor has no soul. I think that’s primarily Simon Cowell’s fault for being so embarrassed about his own failure that he can’t bring himself to care, thus setting an example for the rest of the Table of Privilege. READ FULL STORY

The most-Instagrammed place in 2012 was ...

Screen Shot 2012-12-27 at 2.56.16 PM

My apartment! No just kidding. But that is home to “the most-photographed television screen on EW.com in 2012.” Slightly different/just as important category. If your next guess on the Instagram winner was “the Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) ท่าอากาศยานสุวรรณภูมิ in Bangkok, Thailand,” then you are….. READ FULL STORY
