He said that so many people called him after this rumor hit that he should die more often. The rumor seemed to have started after someone hacked into a page on Wikipedia, a widely used Internet encyclopedia that allows anyone to contribute information.

Former Idol Contestant Accused Of Exposing Himself
Former American Idol contestant, Mario Vazquez excused himself from final 12 competition in 2005 citing “personal reasons” . Many believe that the true intent was to avoid being bound by the restrictive record contract offered to “Idol” winners. A new lawsuit, however suggests that Vazquez may have left the show because of an alleged incident that took place in a men’s bathroom stall. Magdaleno Olmos, a former assistant production accountant on the show has sued American Idol Productions, Fox and Vazquez for wrongful termination alleging that he was fired after complaining to various higher-ups that vazquez had sexually harassed him by making unwanted advances, flashing his genitals and engaging in other inappropriate behavior. According to the lawsuit obtained by TMZ.com Olmos claims “Vazquez stared and smiled lasciviously ans on one occasion followed him into a bathroom knocked on the door of his stall and looked at him in the space in the stall door.” Then he says Vazquez started to rub his genitals over his pants. Attempting to leave the bathroom, Olmos opened the door of the stall and saw Vazquez standing in front of him with his pants down masturbating.” Then Olmos claims Vazquez pushed his futher into the stall and continued maturbating with one hand and tried to pull down Olmos’ pants with another hand. Olmos says he tried to cover his body with his hands but Vazquez touched his chest and stomach underneath his shirt, and Olmos “genitals” as Vazquez attempted to unzip Olmos’ pants and allegedly asked for oral sex. Olmos says he went to a superior named Eric LaPointe and he allegedly told Olmos he was crazy an repeatedly threatened to fire him. Vazquez apparently withdrew from season four after Olmos discussed his harassment allegations with executives and attorneys for American Idol Productions and other defendants, including Fremantle Media North America, Fox Entertainment Group and Fox Broadcassting Co., all listed in the lawsuit as co-owners of the show. a few months after the incident Olmos claims he was “terminated.” so that’s why he quit. I knew he just wouldn’t leave the show because he didn’t want to get in that binding contracting. Like he had a bunch of offers waiting. He was alright.
The Lord Can Help Even Suge Knight
Suge Knight founder of Death Row Records is ready to let the label go after hearing the same message from two different preachers within the span of two weeks. “You’ve got to be able to let the past go and move forward to the future'” he quoted Bishop Noel Jones as saying during a sermon as the City of Refuge church, near his Compton hometown. Knight told Page Six recently that Bishop T.D. Jakes visited the church two weeks later and told the congregation: “you can’t keep living in the past. God gives you a chance to move on.” Knight said that they both talked about the same thing and he felt they were talking to him. He says he wants to move on with his life in a move positive direction. Knight has been in bankruptcy court since Lydia Harris won a $106 million judgement against Death Row by claiming that her husband Michael now doing 28 years in prison co-founded the label and was entitled to 50 percent of the proceeds. Knight was able to give Harris a check for $1 million several years ago. He said once the money ran outshe sued again. Instead of hanging on to Death Row under Chapter 11 reorganization as advised by the bankruptcy court, Suge says he now wants to liquidate his publishing rights, pay off the creditors, and put the label behind him for good. Knight also says he stop using the N-word and wants to make more positive music for kids. He says’ “You can get rich with the devil’s money, but you can only be happy with God’s money.” Well Amen. I really hope he changes.

Lots Of J-Hud News
It seems that Jennifer Hudson is a busy lady these days since she won an Oscar last month. Here’s what she has been up to.
March 6th was proclaimed Jennifer Hudson day in Chicago. Fans came out to the Chicago Theatre as Mayor Richard Daley proclaimed it her day. Daley said she’s an inspiration to everyone who has a dream. Hudson sang a few bars of a song from Dreamgirls at the event. Here’s pictures and video from the event.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1q9oBtoZWlk%5D
Jennifer visited her former high school, Dunbar Vocational Career Academy earlier in the day to offer inspiration to the student body. Here’s video of the visit.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4jlBFLgaWY%5D
Page Six reports that Jennifer and fellow “American Idol” star Fantaisa hit Chicago hot spot Boutique and ordered several bottles of V2 Vodka in the VIP section. Witnesses say they got tipsy, danced to hip hop and “fended off guys” until 2 AM. One of the guys was reportedly former chicago Bears player Tommie Harris. While Hudson gave him the proverbial Heisman , Barrino reportedly got his phone number.
Aretha Franklin confirmed that Jennifer is among the talent considered to play the lead in her biopic. Franklin told Access Hollywood that the producers want to see how she feels about her playing her. Aretha says she would like to see three different people playing her. Should be interesting.
I hear that Jennifer turned down a 3 million dollar role because there was nudity in the film. Not her getting naked but nudity period. She says she is a role model for black girls and didn’t want to do it. Good for her.
Jennifer spoke at an awards ceremony in New York at the UN headquarters. The event was promoting women’s achievements and was on the eve of International Women’s Day. Hudson announed the first prizewinner of Avon’s new “Hello Tomorrow fund”, New Orleans teacher Darlene Morgan Brown who set up an entrepreneurshipprogram for female middle school students and their mothers. The event was co sponsored by Avon. Jennifer is currently the new spokeperson for Avon’s new fragrance Imari Seduction. The new scent will arrive to stores in August.
Jennifer recently was given a liftime pass from her former employer, fast food chain Burger King. She addressed criticism from Simon Cowell who felt she should thank the American Idol competition in recent acceptance speeches. Hudson said, “If I’d been any better at my job when I was at Burger King in my middle teens I wouldn’t be here either, so should I thank them, too?” Happy to have its name coming out of the Oscar winner’s mouth, Burger King capitalized on the situation be releasing a statement to TMZ.com Monday in support of its former famous employee. It reads “In response to Jennifer’s recent comments in which she asked if she should be thanking Burger King we say thanks but no thanks are necessary. Burger King corporation is proud of Jennifer’s success and while we never like to lose employees, in this case, our loss is the entertainment industry’s gain… To futher show our support for Jennifer, and make sure she never has to sing for her supper again, Burger King Corporation is giving her a pre-paid BK Crown Card that will be automatically reloaded for life.” Wow that was really nice.
According to the New York Post Jennifer was not trying to follow up her busy week of hometown celebrations in Chicago and U.N. speeches in New York with a 3,000 mile trek to the West coast for the Soul Train Music Awards. Apparently Jennifer called and said she couldn’t make it and producer Don Cornelius was not happy. He was already dealing with no shows from nominees Mary J. Blige, Beyonce and John Legend. Apparently a Hudson cancellation was the last straw. Cornelius reportedly called J Records head Clive Davis, who is overseeing J-Hud’s debut album. Clive called Jennifer and read her the riot act. He said, “Get your ass out to L.A. and then hung up on her.” Hudson showed up for the show to accept her award and sung “One Night Only.”
Kimberly Locke Performs In A Bikini On A Gay Cruise
Former Idol finailist Kimberly Locke performed at a underwear party on a gay cruise recently. Kimberly reportedly thought she was overdressed and let her dress hit the floor. Wow I’m shocked but I guess she felt comfortable enough to do it. Here’s video of it.

We are receiving emails from fans around the world… It’s all about equal treatment for artists. that’ what we are fighting for… Frenchie deserves an apology from American Idol and return to compete in future competition.” I have no heard a response from Fox or American Idol yet.
