KEITH TALKS IDOL...
We've heard all the buzz behind the scenes at American Idol. Now we'll get to see it for ourselves as season 12 premieres tonight on FOX.
The drama between judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey has been widely reported, but Keith Urban tells us their clashes were a short-lived result of their circumstances as new judges who had no clue what to expect.

Town & Country magazine has named Prince Harry the world's most eligible bachelor. The magazine describes their list as "a highly subjective, thoroughly opinionated survey of the princes, politicians, scions, DJs, and billionaires-to-be we consider the most eligible men in the universe."
Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos see themselves as this generation's Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. In the February issue of ELLE, Ripa, 42, opens up about what first attracted her to Consuelos, 41.
"I was drawn to Mark because he was positively an alpha male, and I didn't think I would be drawn to that. But I just worship him. He makes me feel very safe," Ripa gushes of the actor, whom she met on the set of "All My Children." "I actually call him Desi, because the thing about Desi was that as much attention as Lucy got, Desi was always in charge."
(The couple, who eloped in Las Vegas on May 1, 1996, are parents to Michael, 15, Lola, 11, and Joaquin, 9. They reside in New York.)
Ripa, who tells the magazine she's "dying to be cool" eve though she feels "really dorky" most days, also cops to getting Botox at least once a year.
"Every seven months or so my eyelid skin rests on my eyelashes," she tells ELLE. "So I feel like it makes my makeup artist's life easier, and it makes my eyes look a little more open on TV, which is where I happen to work right now."
