Guys surely swooned during season ten of American Idol whenever gorgeous ballad singer Pia Toscano hit the stage. While she didn’t win that season, Pia certainly hasn’t faded into obscurity. In fact, she has her first movie role in the upcoming Grace Unplugged, due out in October. In a recent interview with Celebuzz, the gorgeous starlet also said she hopes to release her debut album around the same time.
"I've been doing this record for about two years," she told Celebuzz at Lucky Magazine’s Fashion and Beauty Blog Conference cocktail party. "We've had a few bumps in the road, but it tells a story."
While the Idol alum dated DWTS’ Mark Ballas for a while after her run on the show, many dudes will be happy to know the stunner is single.
"I don't have a type of guy," Pia told Celebuzz. "I like a gentleman,” going on to say she doesn’t like the “cocky, overconfident, or rude” types, as she likes a guy who’s respectful. Amen, sister!
The Queens, New York, native does have some celeb crushes, and one of them happens to be sitting at the American Idol judges table this season. Oh, and he’s married. Eek!
"I never realized how sweet and genuine he is," Pia gushed about Keith Urban. "I sent out a little tweet that he's so dreamy." Watch out, Nicole, although all signs we’ve seen this season have pointed to the fact that he is one smitten (and adorable) kitten.
Her other celebu-crush? Ryan Gosling! As for what she’s going to do considering the handsome star just announced he’s taking a break from acting, Pia said, “I'm going to stock up on his movies and watch them constantly. I'm such a dork, I Googled his Ellen DeGeneres interview."
Despite a busy schedule, Pia has been keeping up with American Idol this season, saying the judges have a real “unique dynamic going.” She said she loved all the contestants (politically correct much?), but did say “the girls are super talented.” Pia said she feels a connection to all of them because, as she puts it, “We’re all a big family.”
