Katherine McPhee (American Idol, Smashed, Waitress on Broadway) recently announced her engagement to fellow musician and recording icon, David Foster. Foster reportedly popped the question while the two of them were vacationing in Italy.
Typically engagements call for celebration, but some fans are having a tough time with the fact that Foster is quite literally twice McPhee’s age.
I'm just having a hard time imagining being younger than one of my stepchildren.

Katherine McPhee REALLY wants a Grammy, doesn't she?

This is very bad news indeed. https://t.co/G2KpYzluVg

How long will the marriage between David Foster and Katherine McPhee last?
Er… the answer is that the marriage will last long enough for the much younger (and much less wealthy) Katherine to extract a HUGE separation settlement from the much wealthier (and very DOPEY ) Foster!

Damn, I love Katherine McPhee, but I'm basically the same age & there is no way I'm marrying a 68 year old dude.

But as far as McPhee is concerned, haters are gonna hate.
She, and the world, have much more important things to worry about.
Check out what she had to say.
y’all should be worrying more about registering to vote and midterm elections than who’s marrying me.
thank you for coming to my TED talk.
