"When [Randy] Jackson (who’s been married since 1995) learned [Condoleezza] Rice wanted to meet him..."

"... 'he was sort of mystified ... but he went.'"

Of course he went.

He probably heard about that story that ended up in the NYT about the 50-something blogger lady professor in Wisconsin. The one with the wit and the whip.

Now all the cool guys want to try it.

"Odd couple"?

Right, we all know Bush's Satanic cabal doesn't care about music!

Did Condi want to rip him a new one because his comments on Idol suck? I hope so.

Maybe she wanted to tell him to stop talking like a 14 year old.

I don't understand the premise. Is the mating urge the only reason one celebrity would want to meet another?

According to Harper's Magazine, in the summer of 2007, Condoleeza Rice wanted to meet Pope Benedict. And he's not on the dating market, either (as far as I know).

If Condi Rice wanted to meet him, he must be a FREAK.

Right?

She just made an honest mistake. She really wanted to meet Tito.

"Hi, I'm Condi, how are you?"
"Feeling a bit pitchy, dawg, did you know I used to be in Journey?"

Yeah, that must have a fascinating meeting.

Same. Why does the report mention his being married? What's that got to do with discussing music? Or did the reporter intend to cast aspersion at Condi?

Why is it that when someone wants to meet someone else everyone assumes there is some kind of romantic angle to it?

There are a lot of people I'd love to meet but that doesn't mean I want to get a divorce and shack up with them!

I'm going to spend the next hour thinking of people that I want to meet just so I can talk to them...

I think that it's odd to mention that he's married, too.

OTOH, I'd consider the invitation to assume my spouse was invited.

Condoleezza Rice is a very nice lady. The press doesn't seem to know what to make of her. She is attractive and graceful but she is Republican. Worse. She's a black Republican and friend of Dubya. There has to be something really, really wrong with her. They can't put their finger on it quite yet, but until they do, they will write of her affinity towards Randy Jackson in a subliminally snippy way.....If she had ever in the past or will ever in the future screw up the way Hillary has, the press will fall upon her like the hounds of hell.

I swear to God, Jackson probably said "Dope!" to Condi and Rice visibly winced.

Rice is following an interesting career path: sports management, TV, and entertainment. I'm not surprised. She's quite telegenic.

And you are right, the MSM doesn't quite know what to do about Condi, except to speculate about her alleged lesbianism as if she committed some crime. She's quite an odd bird-and was smart enough to turn down McCain's VP offer on the Ticket To Nowhere.

Which actually did Sarah Palin a lot of good, despite what you hear from the libs. But Condi had other plans.

Condi is pretty good on keyboard. Maybe she is looking for a bassist.

Eli Blake said...

I'm surprised she isn't out yet with her own book.

Where the hell is your Adam Lambert take? Two weeks of silence. Is this off-topic?

I found it strange that the article spins her take on him (found him absolutely enthralling) like she's a ditzy schoolgirl, and of course, nothing about his impression of her post-meeting. How silly, but then it is "US" magazine.

Personally, I'd love to meet Condi. I think she's the bomb - smart, hot, and with a great disposition and sense of humor. Too bad I'm not on some tv show being paid to basically say, "Yo dawg, I'm bein' black now, dawg..." after every contestant; that might get me an invite to her table, apparently.

Randy Jackson's something of a tool, but between him and the new brunette judge, they've brought the show even lower than Paula Abdul's cloying "you are just great because you're you" schtick could've done alone. Wowzerz.
