Kara DioGuardi Was Sexually Assaulted And Harassed

In a new memoir, former “American Idol” judge Kara DioGuardi discusses her career in the music industry, including her claims of being date raped by a “fairly known producer,” and being sexually harassed by a “hugely successful artist” on a three-day songwriting trip. From ABC News:

Instead of working on music, she writes that “the trip’s activities consisted of watching Russian porn, scavenging around the kitchen for food [and] leering at two strippers … as they performed sex acts in the living room.”

Yeesh. Bieber is really getting out of hand.

I guess I’d like to conclude this post with two important points: 1) Sexual abuse is incredibly serious and unfunny. 2) I really, really don’t want to come any closer to this story than I have. I was going to write up a big paragraph about how her description of what happened on the boat doesn’t actually sound that bad given what we know about rock stars, but every time I tried I started sounding like some Spike Channel watching mouthbreather. “Ay, settle down, baby. You know how the game is played.” Ick. So I’m just going to post a video after the jump of a baby laughing while a doggie bursts bubbles, and move along.
