Kevin Jonas is to star in his own reality TV show. The 24-year-old singer and his wife Danielle will appear in E!'s Married to Jonas - on which Ryan Seacrest will act as the executive producer - and will tell the tale of how the pair, who married in 2009, are dealing with their lives in the international spotlight.
"Danielle is living a true Cinderella story after marrying into pop royalty, partnering in Kevin's larger-than-life career and becoming a 'Jonas,' a name synonymous with hit music and a worldwide fan base. The series presents a unique look at a young couple and their families from two entirely different worlds, one small town and one dealing with international fame, coming together as one and starting a whole new life together," said Lisa Berger, president of entertainment programming for E!.
Ryan - who is best known as a presenter on American Idol - reveals plans have been in motion for some time to create a show, which will begin airing in August, based around the couple: "I vividly recall believing from the very first time that I met them that the Jonas Brothers would, without a doubt, become a worldwide cultural sensation. When we learned that Dani married Kevin, our production team became curious about what life would be like for a young bride entering the excitement, and sometimes chaos, of a pop star's life. The show will examine the ups and downs of Dani and Kevin's marriage, against the backdrop of their contrasting family cultures, traditions and individual careers."
If the folks at ABC were counting on Adam Lambert to apologize for his AMA performance, it’s probably a good thing they canceled his Good Morning America appearance.
The American Idol alum showed up to The Early Show instead and did admit that catching glimpses of his favorite pop stars sparked more of his energy.
“I admit I did get carried away, but I don’t see anything wrong with it. I do see how people got offended and that was not my intention. My intention was to interpret the lyrics of my song and have a good time with it.”
He also made no apologies when asked about how he felt with children watching his performance: “It didn’t cross my mind - children. It was almost 11 o’clock at night. I was in the audience and it was mostly adults… I’m not a babysitter. I’m a performer.”

After witnessing the insane vodka-induced, human trafficking dealings by a Russian mafia-run bath house (complete with Alexander McQueen) in the Bad Romance video, I had nearly forgotten about Lady Gaga’s scheduled appearance on Gossip Girl!

In what can only be the ultimate fusion of music, drama, and fashion, Lady Gaga is set to appear on Gossip Girl. While the rest of the cast haven’t let any info slip about the anticipated episode, Gaga herself decided to fill us in on what to expect, as well as divulging how she told the writers how she wanted the story to pan out.
“I am the narrator behind what is going on with the characters and make the song part of the moment,” the “Paparazzi” singer explained, noting that she didn’t want to be on a stage, as many musicians awkwardly and randomly appear on television shows often do (also because she stressed that she doesn’t lip-sync).

Could there be trouble brewing behind the scenes of the world’s biggest singing stage? The American Federation of Musicians has filed a lawsuit against American Idol producers. The damages sought by the union is currently unspecified.
The suit claims that American Idol Productions Inc. and Tick Tock Productions Inc. (a subsidiary) violated a bargaining agreement by underpaying musicians. According to the terms of the contract, musicians receive royalties for re-runs.
Since 2007, however, the soundtrack for past episodes was cut out and new musicians hired to record new music for episodes of American Idol Rewind. The musicians’ union was not informed of this decision.
So, far the powers-that-be at American Idol have offered no comment on the suit.

In my opinion, these two artists earned the distinction of delivering both the Best and Worst speeches at last night’s Grammy Awards.
Amy Winehouse - who looked genuinely shocked at her Record of the Year Award - reminded us all about her recent scandals when we should have been focusing on her talent. To her “incarcerated” husband, Blake - Happy Valentine’s Day!
