Daughtry Gets Heat for Hating on Idol

Chris Daughtry by Chris Walter/WireImage.com

Former American Idol star Chris Daughtry is getting flak for telling Rolling Stone that the show is in "decline." According to the mag's website, a producer for AI called in to explain that Daughtry's comment was "taken out of context" or even — wait for it — "misquoted."That was a big leap of faith to smooth things over, given that the mag has the interview transcript — and there was no doubt that the rocker was hating on his former launch pad. Daughtry knew enough to acknowledge that his comments would likely "be used against [him]," but that didn't stop him from adding that Idol is "definitely lacking some credibility at this point."Is it ever a good time to admit your true feelings about your former home? Or was Daughtry way out of line? Because no matter how "over it" he might be, Daughtry should know that with Idol, it's never over. — Anna DimondUse our Online Video Guide to cue up Daughtry music videos.POLLS: Weigh in on this season's wacky Idol wannabes, ... read more

Remember the gal Simon likened to Willem Dafoe? Well, she has her regrets after behaving the way she did at American Idol's Philadelphia auditions, which aired Tuesday night. "I wish I was a little more subdued," Alexis Cohen today admitted on Fox News' Morning Show with Mike and Juliet, referring to how she flipped off the judges. Alexis, though, defends her outrage at being ousted so early on by saying, "I had to take one for the team!" (This is me going: "What team?")And how does Alexis plan to use her quickly tick-tocking 15 minutes of Idol-season fame? Hoping she can somehow milk some bucks from her brazenness, the veterinarian-in-training says, "I would love to put myself through medical school." — Matt MitovichPOLLS: Weigh in on this season's wacky Idol wannabes, the judges' new (?) attitudes and Randy's new look. read more
