Why Stephen Tyler is Not Good for Idol

 by Lyndsey Parker in Reality Rocks

When I first heard that Steven Tyler had been cast as a judge on "American Idol," I immediately pegged the screwball rocker as the new Paula Abdul: someone to bring the unpredictable, possibly unintentional comedy with babbly banter, out-there outfits, and even some inappropriate flirting. And so far, he hasn't disappointed me in that regard. But now that the live "Idol" shows have started, I'm beginning to think he's not the new Paula. Steven Tyler just may be (gasp!) the new Ellen DeGeneres..

"He was great in the audition rounds, but Steven Tyler calling everybody 'beautiful'...I'm tired of it," my esteemed Yahoo! colleague Matt Whitfield wisely griped during our latest "Idol" gabfest. "Steven is kind of starting to play that Ellen role, just sitting there and clapping like a seal." It's almost enough to make me wish that Kara DioGuardi would come back. Almost..
Look, I love me some Steven Tyler. I love me some Ellen, too...but let's face it, when she was on "Idol," she just benignly told everyone they were great, great, great. Her empty critiques offered no real help to the contestants. ("As the season wore on and her one-liners became familiar, the question of what she added to the panel grew more pronounced," recalls American Idol: The Untold Story author Richard Rushfield.) However, Ellen's general uselessness could be excused, since--not being a musician or music expert herself--she was obviously out of her depth. But Steven is a real rock 'n' roll legend with five decades of music-biz experience from which to draw. Surely he can come up with more astute critiques, or at least a few more adjectives, than just "beautiful," right?.

When the current "Idol" season launched in January, Steven--a man who was clearly born to rock the reality-TV screen--was the runaway star of the show. He pretty much SAVED the show, even, in Season 10's early weeks. He even totally upstaged the seemingly un-upstage-able Jennifer Lopez, as viewers, myself included, tuned in to hang on his every wacky word. So, granted, in the one-liner department, Steven has always had Ellen beat. (Ellen never came up with a zinger like "holly shipyard" or "even a week says WTF," you know.) But now, much like Ellen did last year, Steven simply seems to be coasting on his lovable loopiness..

It's possible that it's difficult for nice guy Steven to hurt these sweet kids' feelings (a moral issue that nice gal Ellen later admitted she grappled with while on the show). And unlike some other talent-show judges, he knows firsthand what it's like to sing onstage for public approval--so that might make him more sympathetic than most. But his fellow veteran performer/tabloid target/former softie J.Lo is finally taking the "Idol" judging job seriously (some of her critiques last week were so smart and on-the-money, Simon Cowell should have taken notes). And "Idol" dawg Randy Jackson has toughened up and stepped it up too. So Steven has no excuse for softballing it, at this point. .

Look, if Steven Tyler is tough enough to battle Kid Rock, Joe Perry, and drug addiction, then he should be capable of brutally-honestly critiquing Stefano Langone's shrill Lionel Richie cover, Thia Megia's robotic emotionlessness, or Scott McCreery's eyebrow-wriggling facial mugging and one-octave range. Lines like "You don't look a day over fabulous" may be quotable and DVR-able (and at least they're dang funny, which is more than can be said for most of Ellen's Season 9 critiques), but they're not going to help anyone grow in this competition in the long run. He certainly shouldn't lose his wonderfully weird sense of humor, but it's time for S.Ty to get a grip..

Charlie Sheen : What's Behind Sheen's 'Vile' Attack On Denise Richards ?

Charlie Sheen unlashed a 'vile' attack  Monday on ex-wife Denise Richards , the mother of his two daughters and one of his last defenders , calling the actress  a "traitor and loser whore" and 'dog thief," on his uber-popular twitter feed . Now , source close to the former couple reveal what's really fueling Charlie's new found hatred for Denise .

Denise didn't steal the dogs , he gave them back to her ," a close friend of Charlie says , referring to the two pugs that no longer stay with the actor . "They were in horrendous shape . "he doesn't want the dogs , he wants to fight !"

True , just read what @CharlieSheen tweeted to 3 millon followers this morning ; "we must bombard with Warlock Napalm , that traitor and loser whore # DUH-neese POOR-ards , a vile kidnapper  and now a dog thief , hate."

A source says that the pugs were infact denise dogs , but after their divorce she let him keep them at his home so that when their daughters come to visit , "they would feel more at home." But then following his infamous hotel-trashing incident in NYC , he gave the dogs back to her .

The dogs were in terrible shape  . He could not look after himself  let along two dogs , "Charlie's friend says that giving back the dogs was a sort of  "thank you gift" for  denise steadfast support of him.

Sadly , one of the dogs died since leaving Sheen's "Sober Valley Lodge ."
During his epic run of interviews last month , Charlie called Denise "fabulous" and "smoking hot"  saying he loves her to death." But his mood changed wildly  after Denise rebuffed his request to allow their daughters , Sam and Lola , to be part of a 'Dateline' special.

"When his sons with Brooke [Muller]  were moved from his custody last month , he asked Denise to bring their daughters to tape interviews , and Denise said no," a source said . "Since that , things with Charlie have been  very, very ugly ."

"Once you offend him , he will go out of his way to destroy you ," the friend said .

And even with all this hatred  and negativity , a source close to both Charlie and Denise  stresses that the actress will continue  to be civil for the sake of their kids .

Denise doesn't agree with his lifestyle  but has always respectful because of their daughters ," says the friend . "She'll always be there for Charlie , but she can't put her kids through this .

Just a thought : Charlie has really lost it and gone off the deep end.... He really needs an 'EXORCIST.'  NUFF said .

'Black Swan' :Filmmaker Denies Natalie Portman Dance Cover-Up

The filmmaker behind 'Black Swan' are denying a dancer's allegetions that she performed almost all of the ballet attributed to Natalie Portman . Sarah Lane  , a aoloist with the American Ballet Theatre  who worked on Portman's dance double , claims the actress only did about "5 percent" of the full body shots audiences see in the film . Lane also says producers pressured the alleged illusion . Fox Searchlight  and filmmakers have now released a joint statement : "We was fortunate to have Sarah  there to cover the more  complicated dance sequences and we did have nothing but praise for the hard work she did."  "However , Natalie herself did most of the dancing featured in the final film .

Lane spoke out after Benjamin Millepied , the movie's   choregrapher  (and Portman's fiance) said in an interview that the actress did about 85% of the dancing.

That's not true , according to Lane , who claims Portman's head was digitally placed on the professional ballerina's  body and that  the overwhelming majority of actual dance moves are hers.

"it's is demeaning to the profession and not just to me ," says Lane . "I've been doing this for 22 years  ... can you become a concert painist in a year and a half  , even if you are a movie star?"

Portman , who has yet to comment on the controversy , won an Oscar for her performance.

Stay tune : I see a fight brewing. ... updates as they become available.

Can Charlie Sheen Bounce Back? : A Look at the Lows of 5 Hollywood Actors

Oh , Charlie Sheen , as his rap sheet details , he's never had an adult life free of turmoil . But just when we thought that he couldn't top a drug-fueled bender at the Plaza Hotel , a night that resulted in thousands of dollars in damages  and  an escort locked  naked in a bathroom , 2011 hit , On January 27 , the actor started spiraling further  out of control when he was hosiptalized with  'severe  abdominal  pains,' and began an apparently self-created in-home rehab program . Nearly a month later , he called into a radio show ranting about  'Two and a Half Men' creator Chuck Lorre , got fired , demanded a 50 percent raise , was sued when he tried   to stop his uncle from taking his spot , lost his publicist , and had his kids taken away from him as he began to partake in a series of wildly weird interviews.

In Sheen's estimation, "can't is the cancer of happen," and after he  "exposed people to magic " with his drug use and partying  , "dying's for fools " and he's ready to take care of his family . He won't , in his mind  , fall back in to drugs because he's "too smart" for that . It's been a wildly public spiral downward  , one that's shown no signs of stopping , even if Sheen is keen to move on and make a sequel to 'Major League.'

At this point , one has to wonder if he has any chance in hell of a comeback ... that is  , if his increasingly erratic behavior doesn't end him before he has a shot . His personal and professional  life is racked with tabloid gold , but he certainly not the first . Though his tabloid trajectory might be unique , he's not alone in his image chaos.
Mel Gibson

If you time-traveled back to the 80's and told the masses that Mel Gibson would become leading tabloid fodder, they probably wouldn't beleive you. Gibson was an actor powerhouse who made a name for himself in the post-apocalyptic chaos of 'Mad Max'  and the crime-solving humor of 'Lethal Weapon.' By the 90's , he was also a two-time Oscar winner as he jumped behind the cameras and showed us the wonder of 'Braveheart.'

But his career started to deteriorate when he was arrested for driving under the influence in 2006 . He made some infamous anti-Semtic remarks directed towards his arresting officer, and his reputation was significantly tarnished . Rather than spiraling futher out of control , he cleaned up his act  and very slowly pulled things back together. But just as his career was getting back on track between work in 'Edge of Darkness' and Jodie Foster's upcoming comedy , 'The Beaver,' drama struck again.

Summer of 2010 saw the release of tapes from ex-girlfriend  Oksana Grigorieva , which had the actor spewing dangerous and racist rants into her voicemail . Gibson was dropped by his agency , dropped from 'The Hangover 2' and has yet to get himself out of the image doghouse .
Robert Downy , Jr.
When it comes to image success stories , there's no actor who's transcended their personal woes as a skillfully and completely as Robert Downy, Jr.  His eary work made him an acting force to be reckon with until a substance abuse plagued his upward trajectory . Over a five-year span in the late 90's , the actor was arrested repeatedly on drug-related charges . He drove naked down Sunset Boulevard , fell asleep  in a kid's bedroom at a neighbor's house  and was once even caught in a hotel room with cocaine and a Woman Woman costume . He said his addictions stemmed from his father supplying him with drugs as early as eight-years-old.
After being incarcerated for nearly a year, and then succumbing to another string os arrests and dramas . Downy Jr. went to rehab , got clean  and got back to acting . Addiction hadn't dulled his talents  and now Downy Jr . is one of Hollywood's leading  actors , and as jokes during this years' Globe and Oscars show , he'll even acknowledge the comedy in his old days of drama.
    Hugh Grant                Starring in 'Four Wedding and a Funeral' made
Hugh Grant the beloved go-to guy for romantic cinematic shenanigans , but at the height of his leading man status just a year after his big worldwide break , Grant was arrested in 1995 for getting oral sex from A prositute  in  public.

Unlike other tabloids kings , Grant's tabloid stint was a one-off,but coming right before the release of  of  'Nine Months,' it had a deadly impact on his career . He didn't regain his leading man status  until the romantic hit 'Notting Hill' four years later in 1999.

Tom Cruise
Like Mel Gibson , Tom Cruise was celebrity royalty through the 80's and 90's. From cult hits like 'Risky Business'  to Academy-nominated fare like 'Magnolia,' Cruise was a big-money , big buzz cinematic powerhouse . And then he started revealing more of his Scientology-based beliefs .

In 2005  he bashed Brooke Shields for using an anti-depressant  to battle post-partum depression and couch-jumped on Oprah Winfrey show to profess his exuberant love of Katie Holmes , which made the masses convinced he went over the deep-in . It didn't help when that private Scientology video surfaced . with Cruise professing that he has the skills to provide essential services at the scenes of accidents.

Cruise is still fighting his way back to the top . 'Tropic Thunder' helped , but  'Knight and Day' was no uber-hit like 'Mission:Impossible,' which is why Cruise is now gearing up for a new installment where he passes the touch to Jeremy Renner. Could Adam Shankman's upcoming  'Rock of Ages' help ?
Fatty Arbuckle
 We wanted to go to the history banks for this last one , the Hollywood actor who paved the way for media whirlwinds and Hollywood scandals . A popular comedian during the silent film era . Arbuckle's career was pummeled after he was arrested  and tried  on manslaughter  charges in the early 1920's . He and a friend had rented three hotel rooms , two for sleeping and one for parting  , in San Francisco . One attendee was an aspiring actress named Virginia Rappe . She was found  seriously ill in one of the rooms  and two days later she was hosiptalized and died . Accounts of the incident ranged from Arbuckle accidentally striking her midsection with his knee , to the actor having raped Rappe with a number of objects .

The scandal was gold for the Hearst publications , and  Arbuckle went through three trials before being acquitted  . The ordeal left him broke , divorced and blackballed from Hollywood . Just when he started to make a comeback in the 30's , he died of a heart-attack.

Just a thought : If history has taught us anything , Sheen has a long  and rocky road in front of him .     Can he make it to the other side  ???

Celebrity Salaries Revealed : TV vs Reality

It's no secret that most celebs can't complain when it comes to their  yearly earnin g . How much do they actually make  ? Take a peek inside the paychecks of some of our favorite stars .
                                   Charlie Sheen ...$30 million
The 'Two and a Half Men' star may have had a few bumps in the road this year  , but his bank account is still intact . The actor earned $30 million in 2010 . How's that for winning ?

                                   Sandra Bullock ... $56 Million
Although Bullock has had a tough personal year  , the Oscar-winning actress has most definitely come out on top financially , pulling in $56 million from her box office hits.

     Kristen Stewart ... $28.5 million  ...... Robert  Pattinson ...$27.5 million
Twilight's dreamy Robert Pattinson earned $27.5 million , while his co-star and rumored off-screen love Kistin Stewart raked in an impressive $28.5  million . That should make for on e memorable date night !
                                Oprah Winfrey .... $315 million
Talk isn't cheap , after all !  Talk show queen  and network owner Oprah Winfrey earned $ 315 million.
                                   Lady Gaga....$62 million
The 'Born This Way' sinfer entertained the world last year , earning a $62 million nest egg .

                                 Dr. Phil McGraw...$80 million
Just what the doctor ordered  ! Dr. Phil McGraw took home $80 million from his day job .

                                 Chelsea  Handler.... $19 million
The talk show host makes an audiences laugh daily  , but she's laughing all the way to the bank with $19 million in her pocket .

                           Ryan Seacrest ...$51 million  ...Donald Trump $50 million
A few years ago , would you ever have guessed that Ryan Seacrest  would out earned  'The Donald '? It's close , but Seacrest brought home $51 million , while Donald Trump earned "just" $50 million.

                                 Jay-Z ...$63 million ...... Beyonce...$87 million
Wonder if there's any salary competition in Beyonce  and Jay-Z's house ? Beyonce out-earned her hubby last year , with $87 million , while Jay-Z brought home a cool $63 million.
Just a thought : I would like to see what their pay is after all the taxes is taken out , such as social security and about 4/5 more  taxes at 15 to 22 percent  , what they are not saying is the millions are gross pay ... I wonder what their net pay is  after all the with-holding  taxes.
