Katherine McPhee's first album to be pop?
Beautiful American Idol runner-up Katherine McPhee has revealed that she will probably be cutting a Top 40-ish pop album. The 22-year-old also told Electric New Paper in Singapore over a phone interview that her signature blues-jazz sound will be saved for a theme album later on, instead of her debut. She also admitted that being second isn't all that bad. Being a runner-up gives more career freedom and she wouldn't mind being the next Clay Aiken. "At the results show, I had the normal nerves, but I didn't anticipate or expect anything," the Los Angeles native said. "Taylor won, it was meant to be. I didn't feel like I needed to win in order to be a winner, as corny as that sounds." McPhee was the first L.A. native in the final two for American Idol and also the only female in the final four.
