    Default Record publishers Sony & Warner tell songwriters to craft tunes for David Archuleta

    Record Execs: Screw the "Idol" Chicks!
    Posted Mar 6th 2008 1:25PM by TMZ Staff
    TMZ has learned the recording industry has no interest -- at least for now -- in the "American Idol" girls. Their focus is exclusively on two male contestants.

    Well-connected record industry sources tell TMZ the major publishers (including Sony and Warner) have already set their sights on Davids Archuleta & Hernandez. The record publishers have already told their songwriters to write songs specifically for David-squared, whether they win or not.

    Sources say this is the earliest publishers have ever committed to the contestants. is america ready for a gay idol?11:59AM / 06.03.2008

    LOS ANGELES (AP) -- No finalist has ever been portrayed as openly gay during the past six seasons of "American Idol." With more details about contestants' personal lives being exposed — both on the show and unofficially online — that could change, and soon.

    Or will it be "Idol" business as usual?

    "It feels like we're closer now than ever to having an openly gay contestant on the show," says Jim Verraros, who came out after his run as a finalist on the first season of "Idol."

    "I'm not here to name any names, but I feel like there are some definite possibilities for this to happen this year," he said. "Do I think it'll happen? I don't know. I hope it does."

    On Thursday, the current 16 semifinalists will be narrowed down to 12 finalists, who will perform live each week until the seventh winner of "American Idol" is selected by the voting public. At its core, "Idol" is a singing competition, but finalists' popularity has always seemed to play a big role in who moves forward. When reached for comment about this story, Fox and "Idol" producers issued the following statement to The Associated Press: "We do not comment on the personal lives of the show participants." None of the current contestants have been made available for comment.>1=7703

    If the public can't figure out that DA is gay, they must not have the volume turned on. He's prisser than Carson Kressley on gay pride weekend.
