Now that Oprah Winfrey has a TV network all to herself, too perfectly called OWN, she's decided that she needs to share the wealth, and along with producer Mark Burnett, is launching a reality competition called Your Own Show: Oprah's Search for the Next TV Star!
"The landscape and acceptance of ordinary people on television is widely accepted … Much in the way 'American Idol' finds unknown people (to be recording stars) there's no reason we can't find someone who deserves their own show. Try to be authentically yourself. Show energy. Donald Trump gave me the greatest advice with 'The Apprentice': Find people with the greatest energy source … you'll be hard-pressed to show me someone who has their own show on TV who is not energetic and who has charisma."
Sounds pretty inneresting. We wonder if it will take off!
Zayn Malik has broken his silence and is talking ... a lot!
In an interview with Dan Wooten of The Sun, the former One Direction member -- who quit on Wednesday -- says there was no fallout with his four other bandmates.
"It is crazy and wild and a bit mad. But at the same time, I've never felt more in control in my life. And I feel like I'm doing what's right -- right by myself and right by the boys -- so I feel good."
In fact, Zayn says he struggled with his decision, mostly because he knew what impact it would have on the millions of 1D fans:
You know, I did try to do something that I wasn't happy doing for a while, for the sake of maybe other people's happiness. And that was mainly the fans. I only ever tried to do it for the fans, and it was only ever for them.
And basically, I'm only upset cause I feel like I may have let them down in some sort of way."
Zayn even addressed his relationship with Perrie Edwards. Their heavily scrutinized relationship was rumored to be one reason why he quit. He told The Sun that his fiancee was "very supportive" and called her "a great girl."
