‘Lauren’s Lowdown’: Oscar Noms, American Idol Recap, And…A Devil Baby?


What a great premiere of season 13 of ‘American Idol‘ last night! I’ll admit it, I was a little skeptical after last year (and honestly, the year before that too) after the judges kept switching over and over. But I think within the first THREE minutes of last night’s show, I can tell this is going to be an AWESOME season!

Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and newest judge Harry Connick Jr. were great, but my fav audition of the night was in Austin, when Munfarid Zaidi, (from Sugarland!) admitted to being a HUGE HCJ fan, and had such a great voice Harry picked him up and cradled him like a baby!

Golden Hollywood tickets went to 46 people last night, and the auditions continue this evening in Austin and San Francisco.

Have y’all seen this viral video going around called “Devil Baby”? It coincides with a new movie out today called “Devil’s Due”, starring Allison Miller and Zach Gilford. It’s a prank video, and it’s HIGH-larious. Must watch below!


According to People Magazine, Robert Pattinson has finally sold the LA Spanish style home he shared with Kristen Stewart. Kristen moved out when that scandal involving her and ‘Snow White & The Huntsmen’ director broke out back in the summer of 2012.

No worries though, according to Redfin, RPatz finally sold the house for $6.375 million after buying it for $6.275 million in September of 2011. He made a cool $100,000 after selling it, not too bad!

Check out a picture of the house HERE.
