They should have called it Fading Star


Jewel — you’ve been wondering what she’s up to, right? — is the host of season five of Nashville Star, which starts this Thursday on USA. (It’s in its fifth season?! I’ve never even heard of it, but then I’m not exactly a fan of country music.) Jewel also has other claims to fame; or, rather, desperate grabs at retroactive stardom:

Jewel said years ago there was a discussion about her becoming part of MTV’s “The Real World,” a reality show in which seven strangers live together before the cameras.

“‘The Real World’ was just starting when I was coming up and they asked me to be on that,” the singer said, “and I didn’t want to be known as the girl from ‘The Real World.'”

Exactly when Jewel might have been considered for the show is up for debate.
