Australian Idol – Dicko and Jay Dee Fighting, And Kim Cooper Says She Is Bi
The Sunday papers are always a font of information on Australian Idol and this week it is no different.
Kim Cooper who was eliminated last week, says she is an alcoholic and bi-sexual, neither of which she wanted to come out on the show.
Kim in this article in the Sunday Telegraph said she is bisexual. Maybe not revealing this during the Idol experience may have been strategic, but it may have back fired. Considering the popularity of Ruby Rose (not just because of her sexuality), Kim should have used this side her her to garner votes, and may have been able to get some of Kate Cook’s gay girl votes.
She also reveals she has had issues with alcohol and has not imhibed for six months. She states that is why she took exception to Jay Dee’s celebrity comments as she said she was the one who was most likely to be home with a cup of tea.
I think I was the only one that thought Jay Dee’s comments to Kim about her wanting to be a celebrity, and only turned up to the audition to support a friend. Jay Dee would be well to remember that American Idol winner David Cook originally turned up to the auditions to support his brother.
Also in the paper it reveals the animosity between Dicko and Jay Dee Springbett is real. That Dicko takes exception that Jay Dee said that he is irrelevant in the recording industry now. Also it states Dicko was surprised that Jay Dee was the person picked to replace Kyle Sandilands.
Tonight on Australian Idol Joel and Benji Madden will be mentoring the contestants, with the them being ’90’s night.
