Vivid to Release <i>Hardcore Idol</i>

Vivid Entertainment Group has acquired the rights to distribute a sex tape featuring former 'American Idol' contestant Olivia Mojica.

The video, which Mojica made with her boyfriend Adam Roberts a month ago in her New York City apartment, was obtained by Vivid from an unidentified third party. Vivid is currently trying to contact Mojica to see if she will help promote the video and share in revenue from its sale.

The DVD is titled Hardcore Idol and preview footage is available to view at . The DVD will be in stores across the country on May 3.

"We have a great combination here. 'American Idol' may be the most popular show in the history of television. Olivia is really cute, the sex is really hot and there is much controversy surrounding the show." said Steven Hirsch, co-chairman of Vivid. "If she was in the adult business, she would be an instant superstar."

Mojica was ranked as one of the "best of the rest" in the second season of the wildly popular Fox TV show "American Idol," when she was just 18. She performed last on March 3, 2003, singing "Because You Loved Me" made popular by Celine Dion, but lost out to a field that included Ruben Studdard, Corey Clark and Clay Aiken. She is currently singing at clubs and other venues across the country as well as working on a full length album which is expected to be in stores nationwide in the first quarter of 2008.

A Texas native, the vivacious, green-eyed Mojica is the latest celebrity to see a video she recently made with her boyfriend find its way into the public arena through Vivid. The company's release of Kim Kardashian Superstar is currently ranked as the #1 adult video on AVN's Retail Buzz chart.
