Modeling Agencies Slapped With $20 Million Class-Action Lawsuit!

New York City modeling agencies Elite, Wilhelmina and Ford are being sued for bamboozling models out their paycheck.

That ain't right!

The lawsuit, which is being led by model Louisa Raske, states:

"Each of the modeling agencies has money in its accounts that rightfully belongs to models, that is being used by the modeling agencies and which has not been paid to models."

The suit also claims models were told they would "never again model in New York" if they took legal action against the agencies.

Wow. Is that even legal?

In total, the models are asking for $20 million, the amount they were allegedly cheated out of due to shady accounting.

Ford has decided to recall over 154,000 Fiesta subcompact cars to fix a side air bag problem.

Apparently, if the front passenger seat is empty, the side air bag won't inflate to protect any people in the passenger side rear-seat during a crash.

While the rapper has yet to publicly confirm her role on the reality competition, sources close to production have revealed that it has not been an easy process working out the contract…but it's not her fault!

Instead, it's because of her recent endorsement deal with Pepsi, as Idol is sponsored by Coca Cola!

However, a similar situation arose with

Two Brothers Rewrite Vanessa Carlton Song To Pay Tribute To Mother

Filed under: R.I.P.InspirationSad SadFamily

So sad.

Ryan and Gregory Miller's mother will not be able to watch her children grow and mature.

Eight years ago, Nicole Miller's Ford Explorer blew out a tire and it rolled over, killing her.

Her sons have pay tribute to their mom by rewriting Vanessa Carlton's A Thousand Miles and posted the video they made on Youtube.

In the video, the boys also plead with other first generation Explorer drivers to stop driving the SUV.

The video is a heartwarming and very emotional story.

The family of Nicole is also suing Ford for the accident, with a Ford spokesperson sending condolences to the family but not commenting much further due to the lawsuit.

Check out the video above to see this inspiring tribute.

Kimberly Locke Bashes Current Idol Contestants!

Filed under: Music MinuteAmerican Idol50 Cent

It's no shocker that the general consensus for this season of American Idol is pretty negative, seeing as none of the contestants are particularly talented or interesting!

Season two contestant Kimberly Locke, whom we actually like and has been mildly successful post the reality competition, is the latest to give the current batch of booooooring singers a smackdown!

She says:

“I think that they’re going to have to go back to the raw talent. The other night, on the show, I think everybody except for two people, maybe, played the guitar. I don’t play an instrument. I love people who play instruments — I think it’s great — but American Idol is a singing competition and I think it distracts and it takes away. I think some of them are better musicians than they are singers — if you really want to know the truth about it. When I was on American Idol it was about raw talent; you had a microphone, a microphone stand, a spotlight, and a track. We didn’t even have a band on my season! So, I do think it’s still a great way to find talent. I think they just need to get back to the basics of singing. One of the things I didn’t like about Idol was the Ford commercials. It was like, ‘Come on.’ For a lack of a better word they would whore us out, we did all these commercials for free, they got to use our image and our names. But the thing that upset me the most about it is that it took up so much time in our day. We were already exhausted running around doing press, people pulling us in a thousand directions, now we’ve go to do Coke and Ford and all these different spots for the sponsors. Those things would take, like, an entire day. Some nights we wouldn’t get finished from doing just that until midnight. It’s like, ‘Really?’ And then they’re like, ‘Practice your song in your sleep.’ I was like, ‘Really? Come on.’ So, the Ford commercials were kind of annoying. And, we didn’t get a car. So, go figure.”

We do think that it takes a great deal of talent to play the guitar and sing, but we agree that everyone this year has an instrument in hand CONSTANTLY - probably to distract from their SHITEOUS singing!

And those Ford commercials are effing obnoxious!

What do U think?? Do U agree with Kimberly Locke??
