Paul McDonald surprised some when he was voted off American Idol, but it was what happened off-camera that was most surprising! Has American Idol made a diva out of Pia Toscano?

One week removed from fan favorite Pia Toscano‘s shocking elimination came an equally shocking moment, when I saw Pia Toscano in the audience last night with her own bodyguard and $730 dollar Speedy 30 bag from Louis Vuitton. Talk about moving on up!

When the stunning American Idol castoff was on the show last week, she was living the dream like the other kids. However, now that she is voted off, she has a record deal, a new DWTS boyfriend in Mark Ballas and other perks that would normally be suited for Idol judge, Jennifer Lopez, rather then Pia Toscano.

Even Randy Jackson got in the game. When he saw Pia, he gushed like a school girl, pointing and stating, “You should be here, dawg!”

Pia took it all in stride, greeting fans and sucking up all the attention from on-lookers in the American Idol audience. Certainly, this was a far cry from last week when she was helped off stage by two crew members, physically and emotionally a mess from her unexpected elimination. Fast forward to this week — you know what they say — to be a star, you have to act like a star…which is one thing Pia has seemed to achieve in little time whatsoever!

HollywoodLifers, do you think Pia should embrace her inner diva or slow her role and actually achieve something before she gets too big for her britches? Sound off below!
