Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.
Crystal Bowersox has plenty to look forward to. Even though she came in second place behind Lee DeWyze on the just-finished season of "American Idol," the legacy of runner-ups on that show has been pretty excellent. Recent history has shown that Adam Lambert is having quite a satisfying career despite having lost his season to Kris Allen. And it has been two years since David Cook narrowly defeated David Archuleta for the title of "American Idol" in one of the most thrilling seasons in the show's history. But there is still plenty of fervor for Archuleta, as was the case when he visited a Borders in New York City on Wednesday (June 2) to plug his new book "Chords of Strength: A Memoir of Soul, Song and the Power of Perseverance." The autobiography tells the story of how Archuleta overcame vocal paralysis to make his incredible run on "Idol." At the book event, Archuleta performed for the passionate crowd and also hung out with recent "Idol" contestants Casey James, Didi Benami and Andrew Garcia.
He wasn't the only star out and about on Wednesday, as Paul McCartney partied with President Obama at a concert in the former Beatle's honor and Ke$ha paid a visit to the MTV studios in London. Click here for these photos as well as the entire "Spotted!" archive, which features over 350 candid shots of stars like Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, the Jonas Brothers, Mariah Carey, 50 Cent, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Jessica Simpson, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga!
