Not getting our fill of American Idol twice a week, we squacked with season seven's Michael Johns at the G'Day USA Black Tie Gala. If ya remember, the angsty Aussie rocker got beaten out by other angstier rocker David Cook last year, and the two hotties have remained close since. So how's the dude dealing with his recent breakup with Kimberly Caldwell? "He just got a new puppy; I think it's a little Scottish terrier. His name's Dublin or something." Only way to replace an adorable gal is an even cuter pooch, that's fer sure.
Oh, and what do ya think about the new, judgier eighth season? Mikey's answer is sure to shock ya.
