PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
Billboard – Pharrell Williams’ Top 40 Return: 10 Songs That Prefaced His Pop Comeback “Looking at the Top 20 of the current Hot 100 chart, a familiar name appears twice: Pharrell Williams. For fans of early ’00s pop music, this is hardly an unusual sight — time was, Williams was about as consistent of a presence as there was on the charts, both as a behind-the-scenes producer and as a go-to hook man and featured artist on smashes by Nelly, Snoop Dogg, Justin Timberlake, Clipse and countless others…Even Pharrell’s most devoted followers had to be caught a little off-guard by the writer/producer’s work on “American Idol” alum Adam Lambert’s “Trespassing” album, churning out both the barnstorming, “Another One Bites the Dust”-esque glam disco of the album’s title track, and the strobe-light throwdown of “Kickin’ In,” arguably the album’s finest track. Lambert gave Williams his finest pop muse since Justin Timberlake (“Rock Your Body,” “Senorita”) back in ’03, and P responded with two of his most creative, intoxicating and boundary-stretching tracks of recent years, both of which would have been mega-hits in a fairer pop universe. Clearly, Pharrell and disco were meant to have further success together.

American Idol” is firing longtime executive producers Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick in a continuing bid to win back viewers and shake up the show, an insider with knowledge of the show told TheWrap.
Fox declined to comment on this report.
Their terminations from the show arrive amid flux for the talent competition after alternative programming chief Mike Darnell’s sudden Memorial Day weekend exit.
The new judging panel was aimed at assembling three former “Idol” contenders, including Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Clarkson, but that plan appears to be in a holding pattern since Darnell’s departure and a lack of someone at the top to make the final decisions, a senior executive with knowledge of the production told TheWrap.
“We can’t make any moves on ‘Idol’ without someone in there,” the executive said…
We also hear that Adam Lambert and Clay Aiken, two other names floated as possible former contenders-turned-judges, have not recieved offers. Though one of the individuals we talked to said that if the show actually moves forward on an all-alum panel, then Lambert is the show producers’ top contender.

Billboard – Adam Lambert, LeAnn Rimes Flick Off Bullies “Today, images of LeAnn Rimes and Adam Lambert giving cameras the middle finger began circulating around the internet in support of an anti-bullying campaign that embraces a new “F” word — friendship.
Originating in Los Angeles, the Friend Movement is a grassroots organization created by Elliot Dal Pra London and Ronnie Kroell that aims to prevent bullying through enabling people to be better friends and by displaying positive images of people of all races, genders, and creeds.
The “New F Word” campaign is the organization’s most recent effort in spreading bullying awareness and self-empowerment, as well as replacing hurtful “F” words like “freak” and “fag” with kinder ones like “friend.” “
Adam Lambert, LeAnn Rimes, Rumer Willis, Darren Criss, Tim Gunn, Real Housewives‘ Lisa Vanderpump and model Ronnie Kroell are among the celebs starring in a new anti-bullying campaign in support of the Friend Movement Anti-Bully Benefit Concert.
The concert, which will take place July 1 in LA, will feature performances from Rimes, Frenchie Davis, Dia Frampton from The Voice and more, and benefit the Friend Movement.
Created to help show positive anti-bully images through art and media, Friend Movement inspires people to prevent bullying by enabling them to be a better friend; providing entertaining and educational resources, cultivating global partnerships, and leveraging the latest social media technology.
