L.A. Reid Confirms New Fiona Apple Music On The Way

We’ve waited years for new music from Fiona Apple, and now there’s a possibility that we’ll only have to wait a few more weeks. “Lots of good music coming from @Epic_Records in the next few weeks,” L.A. Reid tweeted out to his followers. “Stay tuned music fans. Welcome back Fiona! #BeEpic.” We’re wary that Apple would rush out an album announcement and a press tour for the follow-up to her 2005 LP Extraordinary Machine in just a matter of weeks… though she has said her album has “been done for a fucking year”, so she probably just wants it to be released already. Either way, we’re on board. [Via MTV]

Fox’s off-season American Idol — aka The X Factor — has released a new promo for it’s September 21 premiere, titled “Prepare”. How does one prepare for the premiere of a new singing competition show other than remember to set their DVRs? Are there bomb shelters to hide inside, survival classes to take? Nevertheless, we see a suited-up Simon and LA Reid, along with a shimmery-as-can-be Nicole and Paula, flash their astounded and/or exasperated faces as no short number of belligerent and/or terrible contestants take the stage.

Nicole Scherzinger And Paula Abdul Glow In US ‘X Factor’ Promo Pics (PHOTOS)

Nicole Scherzinger certainly isn’t going for that all natural look in the newly released promo pics for the X Factor. The “Wet” singer looks like a glamazon! Not to be outdone, former American Idol judge Paula Abdul looks unbelievably good. The 49-year-old continues to age in reverse. Rounding out these shots are co-stars L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell, as well as (absolutely adorable) host Steve Jones. If the allure of watching music hopefuls sing their hearts out for a chance at a five million dollar recording deal (and five million in cold hard cash) isn’t enough to attract you, perhaps Fox is hoping these reminders of their attractive cast will get you to tune in. Is it working?
