Whatever year-old singer Antonella Barba expected to gain from auditioning for the star-making machine American Idol , it was likely fame, not infamy. Photos of Barba topless, hands covering her breasts, and on the toilet, appeared on the Internet just as she emerged as a semifinalist on television's top-rated show earlier this month.
