Antonella Barba Nude Pics Cause American Idol Controversy

Does American Idol have its very own Katie Rees on stage?

First Live Performance

As everyone's favorite reality show heads into the semifinals, controversy is swirling around Antonella Barba. The New Jersey native may have a great singing voice - but she apparently also has great collection of drunken, topless pictures. 

Granted, these are nothing compared to the Katie Rees photos that caused Miss Nevada to forfeit her crown. And cocaine addict, Tara Conner, would scoff at the mere idea that any of Barba's pics were even remotely considered lewd.

After all, it's not like the American Idol hopeful is making out with Katie Blair or even showing her boobs. These are pretty darn tame.

Nevertheless, Idol is aimed at kids. We doubt FOX will be too pleased that Barba's bare breasts are out there, as covered as thet might be. But it still could be worse - at least she didn't go all Kim Kardashian on young fans.
