From the very first season, American Idol was an instant hit. Kelly Clarkson was the winner, and albums later, she is still a pop sensation. By the start of season 2, Randy, Paula, and Simon became household names and it was impossible to escape references to these eccentric judges. Each season the show attracted more and more viewers and had record breaking numbers of votes at each finale.
For us fashionistas, New York Fashion Week is the highlight of the year (or at least the highlight of this dreary February we're having). Our CollegeCandy hearts always skips a beat when we see those white tents going up in Bryant Park. The clothes, the shoes, the celebrities, the glamour... Sigh. It's almost too much to bear.
MTV has been by my side ever since Justin Timberlake was breaking it down with N*sync on Total Request Live. Yes, it seems crazy now, but MTV used to actually have shows dedicated to music. And just recently, like a very public break-up on Facebook, MTV has made it official and removed "Music Television" from their new logo, and replaced it with... Snooki?
Is season 2 really taking place in Miami? Who cares! OK, we do, but we care more about what our favorite guidos and guidettes are up to now that deep-pocketed wannabes are living in the 'Jersey Shore' beach house. And we know the answer. They're partying, and making hand-over-fistpump cash doing it.
Why do we love the Olympics? Is it the patriotism? Is it the two week long parade of international hotties? The never ending supply of Lifetime movie-worthy inspirational stories? The adrenaline rush of nonstop athletic competition? If you're like us at CollegeCandy, the answer is a big Y-E-S to to all of the above.
So we all know that boredom can lead to a lot of bad things: eating, online shopping, texting the ex BF and telling him that you still love him (OK, maybe that's just me). But did you know boredom can actually kill you? Yeah, that's what scientists in London are saying.
It's the end of the world as we know it. First Washington D.C. gets the most snow they've seen in 90 years and then an earthquake hits Illinois?! WTF is going on? Is Mother Nature mad that she doesn't have a Valentine?
• An earthquake? In Illinois?! • It's a miracle MJ didn't die sooner. • Make your legs look longer. Like, way long. • Google goes couture? • Calgary students protest tuition hike...naked. • What makes people on the Internet so angry?!

It happened suddenly. I was doing some work in my living room while one of my roommates watched The Bachelor in the background. I needed a break from all the writing so I joined her on the couch. Ten minutes later, I was hooked.
I reuse Ziploc bags, I pay for my coffee with pennies, and all my jeans have holes in the crotch. I don't pay for anything that I don't desperately need. So even though I've been asked for my business card several times, I never shelled out the money to get them made. I will regret that decision for the rest of my life.
After months of speculation, Ellen DeGeneres will finally have the chance to prove herself worthy of the seat between 'American Idol' judges Kara, Randy and Simon. Tuesday night marks her much anticipated 'Idol' debut, replacing former judge Paula Abdul.
Valentine's Day sure does have a way of sneaking up on me and my singleness every year. And I'm not sure how it happens, seeing as the heart-shaped candy has been out since December. But while I may be forced to cuddle up with my pup come Sunday, it turns out that most people - single or taken - would actually prefer it!
OK, Rihanna, I get it. Your music is innovative and powerful. You're talented and beautiful. And thanks to you, I now refer to an umbrella as an "ella ella ella." You're classy, eloquent and inspirational; the kind of woman we can all look up to... unless we're looking to you for fashion advice, that is.
So, who else has a mean hot wing hangover this morning? Seriously, my heartburn is out of control and I didn't even pound Budweisers last night. In fact, I was so busy licking BBQ sauce off my finders, I couldn't tell you who threw (kicked? passed?) the winning touchdown. I can, however, tell you the best recipe for some wings. And the best/funniest/awesomest commercials from the Super Bowl.
(Girls, watching television in the lounge.) Girl 1: I just like Peyton and beer. Girl 2: I'd hit Peyton. I'd hit his chin, too, if he had. one.
I had been seeing a boy in the Air Force. We'd hang out and make wonderful memories when he was on leave and visiting home, and then I'd be free as a bird when he had to go back. It was fun while he was here, and it was fun when he was gone.
It's a tough call akin to choosing between wasting calories on guacamole or buffalo wings, but because I find Peyton Manning so funny and on top of everything (he may be one of the most talented players to ever handle the pigskin... does anyone even say that anymore?) I think I'm gonna have to go for the Colts this year.
Pat yourselves on the back, everyone - we have officially surpassed another stressful week! And if you are a hopeless romantic like me, Channing Tatum is closing out the week with a bang (or a box full of tissues) in Dear John. And I. Am. Looking forward to it. Besides drooling excessively over Mr. Tatum's abs, we have a lot more to look forward to this weekend: dance parties, our last football Sunday for the season, and busting our minds for that perfect gift for a special someone.
Smooth move there, Spirit Airlines. I doubt anyone's gonna read too much into this one. What's next:
Luckily, no matter the sport, the Olympics always provide one thing we can all appreciate: hot pieces of well-toned man meat. We already know we'll be watching Short-Track Speed Skating (which we didn't really know existed until now....) to root on American hottie, J.R. Celski, and now I'm bringing you just a few more reasons to tune into (and enjoy) the 2010 Winter Olympics.
With Valentine's Day just around the corner, many of us are spending our days in bed, sifting through photos of boyfriend's past with a tube of cookie dough in hand while The Fray plays in the background. No? Just me? Alrighty then....
