    Re: Kelly Clarkson Loses Twitter Followers After Endorsing Ron Paul

    Ah, she isn't making that much money. Most of it still goes to American Idol. I read that the winners have to give a huge portion of their winnings to AI or something. I never watched that show - the only year I came close was when some hillybilly named Bo something or other came close to winning and everyone around me was talking about him like he was the next Carlos Santana or something. A girl I worked with wanted to watch him one night at work and I let her watch (against my better judgement) and ended up regretting it, and found a stack of papers to file.

    As far as celebrities, they have every right to say what they want to say - they just have to be prepared for the backlash. Honestly, I've never understood why people put so much stock in what celebrities say, anyway.

    She gained +10k followers i believe and the Ron Paul community surged her to the top 1 of amazon & gaining on itunes.

    Red Jumpsuit Apparatus seeing if it'll work for them? They picked a great video.

    I read once that there's a time limit in the contract with AI, but I don't know that for sure. Three years, or five years, IIRC.

    Totally agree no matter which way they want to swing.

    Just as the Dixie Chicks they have to beaware you are going to piss off 50% of your fans. It only shows they have shallow business savy.

    You don't see Safeway putting up "Obama in 2012" signs in their stores for a reason.

    Wherever I read that, I had read that too, radcen. If I remember correctly, with the top winner it was like 10 years, and 2nd place got 5 years and the rest got 1 year. Again, that's if I remember the article correctly. From the way the article read, the performers actually wanted to win second place, because they were on the hook with AI for alot less time.

    You're jogging my memory. I remember reading that, too.
