Call it a case of "Sex & Jugs & Rock & Roll." With Rock Star: Supernova, it looks like CBS is keeping at least one contestant's "body" of work... under wraps.
Supernova is our must-watch show of the summer. It's a hoot watching clueless pop wannabes sing REM and Bjork tunes in hopes of fronting a band of oldsters including schkeevey Tommy Lee and Gilby Clarke, who's been resurrected as a character from Deadwood.
The potential winners are already easy to pick (a crazy-looking woman with spikes jutting from her jaw and a round-headed kid who's a cross between Edward Scissorhands and Pete Doherty). The rest are Young Republican types who'd fit back in at the insurance office as soon as they wiped off the mascara and removed the earring, and though Courtney Love is picking up much-needed cash by allowing the massacre of her dead husband's Nirvana catalogue, it's definitely a TiVo show, so painfully boring numbers can be fast-forwarded.
Then there's the gal who calls herself Storm Large.
She performs like a Broadway diva who spent too much time locked in a room with Toni Basil videos, and seems to be "acting" the part. But she's a looker just the same, as Lee pointed out when he said he wanted to see "more" of her.
Her response: "G-o-o-g-l-e."
Funny that CBS would allow that line on the air when they've censored her website!
We got around to googling Storm Large and were surpised to find she has a band named The Balls (with videos available on YouTube). And unless the whole web history is a promo scam, she seems to have a reputation, not around 44th Street or Santa Monica Blvd., but in and around Portland, Oregon (home of The Hudson Brothers).
And she's a lot dirtier than CBS lets on. In fact, she may have something to hide, and CBS knows it, as the cock-blocked website for Storm and The Balls confirms:
The Powers That Be in Hollywood asked us to take down some of our other pages for a while.
I know...we're as bummed as you are, but we cooperated.
We found these pix on her Myspace site (which plays a pleasant Balls song: ABBA's "Take A Chance On Me" over the riff from In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida). There are bound to be more, most likely doled out by CBS flaks to generate controversy for the show.
In the meantime, CBS didn't shut contestant Dilana's site. We'll be Googling the other Supernovettes as we await word of Storm's Playboy spread.
EVEN BIGGER (TOPLESS) UPDATE!!!!
