Christopher Ciccone, best known as brother to superstar singer Madonna, is vying for the empty seat opening up on “American Idol” next year. He’s urging fans to call 19 Entertainment and request him to be the next judge.
Ciccone has even started a new Facebook group, “Christopher Ciccone for ‘American Idol,’” which lists the numbers to 19 Entertainment in the U.S. and overseas. “Simon Cowell is leaving ‘American Idol’, and who better to replace him than Christopher Ciccone?” reads the description. I could name a hundred. But that’s not stopping Ciccone from trying, who claims he has 25 years in the music business, although I’m not sure two Madonna video cameos in the early 80′s count. He did however, design the stage for one Madonna tour and direct another in the early 90′s. “Christopher knows all too well what it takes to be a pop star, and with his infamous ‘Ciccone Tongue,’ he won’t be afraid to speak his mind,” continues the posting. Ciccone has been an interior designer for the better part of his career and recently a tell-all author with his self-penned “My Life with My Sister Madonna.” Ciccone joins LaToya Jackson as the latest celebrity striving for Simon’s empty judge chair. But they might have better luck getting on a show like “I’m a Celebrity? Get Me Out of Here” than “Idol.”
Is LaToya Jackson right? Was Michael Jackson murdered by someone close to him? According to TMZ, the Los Angeles Police Department now is reportedly treating the death of Michael Jackson as a homicide. And they are focusing on Jackson’s personal physician of three years, Dr. Conrad Murray.
Who is this guy?
Murray was hired by AEG Live to accompany the pop star to London for his comeback concerts. According to AEG, Michael was adamant that Murray be hired because the singer had a “rapport” with the doctor. The Los Angeles Times reported that Murray was performing CPR on Jackson when paramedics arrived at his home on June 25, and Murray’s car was later towed by police from the home. Evidence points to the anesthesia drug Propofol as the primary cause of Jackson’s death, reports say. Vials of Propofol were found in Jackson’s home after he died. Law enforcement sources say there is already “plenty of powerful evidence” linking Murray as the person who administered the drug to Jackson. The evidence includes: the Propofol, an IV stand and oxygen tank found in Jackson’s home. Will you be surprised if this dude says Jackson injected himself with this IV drug? Ladies and gentleman, place your bets.
