'Idol' Singers Scared To Death Of Nicki Minaj
LAS VEGAS (CAP) - American Idol hopeful Charlie Askew says he was "forced" to file a restraining order against judge Nicki Minaj when he woke up in his hotel room to find her standing over him in a platinum purple wig and rainbow colored bustier, staring at him and quietly sobbing.
"I'm pretty weird ... but that was REALLY weird," said a noticeably shaken Askew, who noted that Minaj refused to leave until he gave her his teddy bear to take back to her room with her.
"He just looked so cute in his blue feety pajamas ... I just love him like a little brother I want to cradle to my bosom until he can't even breathe," said Minaj, noting that the teddy bear "had Charlie's weird little smell."
"I did unspeakable things to that teddy bear all night long, know what'm sayin'?" she added.
Contestants Chris Watson and Elijah Liu also reported unusual, disturbing behavior on the part of Minaj. Watson noticed that she was using the high notes from his performance of Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay as her cell phone ringtone, and whenever it went off she would close her eyes and groan.
"I got it on vibrate, know what'm sayin'?" she told him afterwards, when he woke up to find her in his hotel room.
And Liu, 18, told authorities that Minaj had been sending him paint swatches to pick the the color of their nursery "for when I have your babies, know what'm sayin'?" Then he burst into tears.
However, apparently such behavior on the part of judges is nothing new on Idol: Many attributed the extreme nervousness of 2010 winner Lee DeWyze to the fact that he'd often wake up with Simon Cowell standing over him, glowering.
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (CAP) - Even as news continues to filter out about whether and where Lindsay Lohan has checked into rehab, officials at the Morningside Recovery Center are flattered that Lindsay Lohan would fly all the way across the country just to visit them - so much so that they have decided to name a wing after the troubled actress.
"Just as we are dedicated to providing exceptional care, treatment and services to the plethora of junkies, lushes and losers who walk through our doors, it's only appropriate that we honor those who show the same dedication by coming back again and again," the center said in a prepared statement.
The newly named Lohan Adjunct is located inside Morningside's clinical building and contains half a dozen general purpose rooms perfect for impromptu meetings with one's agent, signing the first 100 copies of one's tell-all book, or discussing rights to the movie with producers.
"There will also be an alumni area for those with our member rewards card," said Dr. Kenneth Perlmutter. "Remember, after the ninth visit, the tenth one's free!"
With the arrival of the wing's namesake, the facility plans to hold an open house where local druggies and drunks can "Let Go With Lindsay!" for a few hours this weekend. Not only do the festivities fulfill the center's community outreach goals, they could also drum up some new business.
"We understand most people won't be able to afford our services and will have to undergo detox curled up in a ball on the bathroom floor of their apartment," Perlmutter said. "Which is why we're offering a free 90-day stay to five lucky addicts handpicked by Lindsay herself!"
