Simon Fuller and Ken Warwick Owe Me Money

Ok, so now I'm convinced that powerful TV mogul-types actually read my blog. I just read the announcement in TV Guide that American Idol creator, Simon Fuller, is creating a songwriting contest called Composer Idol (wt). The new contest will run during AI's Final 12, and the winner gets to compose the new American Idol winner's first single.

Now, where have I heard this idea before? Hmmmm.....where was it? Oh, I know! Right here on The Pop Eye. I came up with this concept last year after I almost vomited up my small intestine upon hearing "I Wanna Be Inside Your Heaven." See for yourself by taking a stroll down "I-thought-of-that-first" lane:

Bastards. Of course, the judges of the songwriting competition will probably be Diane Warren, David Hasselhoff and uh....I don't know...probably some rude British person. Therefore, they will reward songs that fit the traditional AI single mold, and we'll all find out that undiscovered crap is a lot more common than undiscovered talent.

Can't believe they stole your idea!
I hate it when that happens.

You did have a good idea, the next song has to be better!

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
