Kara has also written for, um, Paris Hilton. Hey, they can't all be hits!
Speaking of not all songs being hits...Kara actually briefly fronted Platinum Weird, a sort of fake band with the Eurythmics' Dave Stewart that was the subject of a Behind The Music-style spoof rockumentary on VH1 a couple years ago.
See for yourself, in this Kara/Platinum Weird performance shot at the Yahoo! Music studios back in 2006:
I'm personally looking forward to seeing Kara spar with her fellow judges next season. Besides being able to upstage Paula in the fashion, singing, and lucidity departments, the woman is sharp-tongued enough to maybe give even Simon Cowell a run for his money. Check out her entertainingly mouthy interview here (all about her fake former band), and get ready for her Idol closeup next January:
- Kara DioGuardi
- Platinum Weird
- Hannah Montana
- Kelly Clarkson
- Carrie Underwood
- Avril Lavigne
- Lindsay Lohan
