Katharine McPhee hates the Constitution.

In a new interview with TV Guide, Katharine McPhee (depicted as a startled wax replica of herself, left) reveals her extreme paranoia and her disdain for your constitutional rights:

I think those Idol forums — like AmericanIdol.com — should be shut down. It’s basically just an opportunity for people to say the meanest things without consequence.

The first thought that popped into my mind was “what consequences does Katharine think there should be for saying mean things about her?” I mean, maybe she thinks we should all be forced to wear flat shoes or go out in public without hair extensions. Yeah, that’d hurt. The second thought, of course, was that Katharine obviously failed high school civics, or at least was too busy brushing her hair during the part where the teacher would have talked about the First Amendment and the long-settled right to criticize public figures. But eh. Katharine was also convinced that her record producers were gossipping about her in the studio:

The thing that was hard for me about the studio is that I love to talk. And I was so isolated in the booth. It was pitch-dark and quiet, and [the producers] would be outside talking and I’d be like, “Hello? Guys? What are you saying about me?” I would hope that my second record would be less of me judging me.

And gee, I thought “judging” — as in “she sounds good here, she could sound better here, let’s have her record this track again” — was an integral part of making sure you put out the best album possible.

Let’s break this snarkfest up with some Taylor news. Taylor will be at Laser’s Edge record store — Fred over there has been diligently keeping up with the processing orders, as Laser’s Edge is the only retailer that carries Under the Radar — on March 10 to meet some of his fans. I wonder if he’ll also perform there a bit; the store does have artists come in and perform every so often.

The Daily Egyptian also weighs in on Kat’s album:

It’s fitting that songstress Katharine McPhee was the runner up in the 2006 “American Idol” competition because most of her debut album is second rate at best. Mixing bits of pop melody, R&B bump and maudlin ballads, McPhee’s self-titled debut is a mixed bag of emphatic crooning and the most generic production and songwriting money can buy. Like “American Idol” itself, the album is mostly mediocre and cringe-inducing, but it’s sure to strike a chord with middle-aged Midwestern housewives, teens and music fans looking for a good chuckle…Worst of all, however, is the laughable “Open Toes” on which McPhee sings an ode to her favorite shoes. Her follow up album will surely contain salutes to her favorite lip-gloss and maybe- if we’re all lucky- a tune devoted to her lucky hairbrush. Much of the album’s remaining material sounds like Janet Jackson, circa 1995. The difference here, however, is that McPhee doesn’t have Jackson’s vocal prowess, gift for melody or ability to sell a hook. In fact, most of “Katharine McPhee” sounds like the generic B-side to a much better artist’s album.

    Jesus Christ. And people think Taylor suffers from foot-in-mouth disease.

    So, I wonder how many TWoPpers are hoping that she’ll fail because she said this? /snark

    Okay, she definitely has the legs and body for short dresses, but the RED lipstick… eek!

    What about the consequences of KAT’s saying mean things about Kellie, Taylor, Chris, Elliott, Meatloaf, Simon, Randy, Paula, the ladies on The View, Celine Dion (she’s “out”), etc.
    She’s just being “honest.” Maybe the people she says are being mean to her are just being honest.
    Another double standard from McMeeee.
    She wants to be able to say mean things under the guise of being “refreshingly honest,” but she doesn’t want to let others do the same thing.
    What an immature girl this is!

What the kids are sayin’

"I hate them all. The judges, TPTB, the blatant manipulation, the songs, the contestants, everything. I'm a die-hard Cook fan, but for the love of god, at least try to look like you're enjoying yourself up there! Please? Syesha was awesome but she ruined it by being completely shameless and disgusting. Yes, being on American Idol is exactly like the civil rights movement, except for the part where you're fighting to make the world a better place."

"All I can say after the disgusting display tonight of favoritism towards the mediocrity that is David A. - good luck trying to market and make money off of that kid, American Idol. (Not to mention good luck dealing with his father.) All the teeny boppers may buy up his American Idol coronation single, but they will quickly forget about him before the album comes out. And I shudder to think of a David A. album - song after song of unrelenting sameness and heavy breathing. Why they are pimping him for the win is beyond me."

"This show was simply a hot buttered mess tonight. And Jason "needs to be arrested for what he did to I Shot the Sheriff. But I hope he stays. He amuses me. "
