YOU ARE WHAT YOU SING: There's an interesting little document cropped up listing the songs which wannabe American Idols aren't allowed to sing in their desperate attempts to attract the eyes of the nation in the hope that they might add some value to their otherwise empty lives. There's a blanket ban on Mariah Carey and - erm - Van Morrison, and a tart "most alternative/rock bands would not be advisable" (thereby shutting out the chance of AI getting its own Fame Academy-esque plastic indie boy shoofing his way through The Strokes like his taut little ass depended on it). We guess its something to do with rights clearance, isn't it?

This came to us via the excellent hookers & blow, who also gave us the lead on the story above.
