Mariah Carey 'Mortified' After A 'Horrible New Year's Eve'


Mariah Carey

It's safe to say that Mariah Carey didn't exactly have the best start to the new year. Her performance on 'Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest' was shambolic to say the least, and now the singer has opened up about the extreme technical difficulties that plagued her show.

Mariah CareyMariah Carey opens up about NYE performance

It was painful to watch; seeing Mariah attempting to sing along to her own music while clearly being unable to hear the backing track, and then deciding to just lip sync for the rest of the performance - which made it even worse if that were possible. It didn't start off too badly; her 'Auld lang Syne' was sensational, if marred a little by her inability to stop fiddling with her ear piece, but now we know why.

Mariah Carey is one former ‘American Idol’ judge who definitely won’t be headed back to the table for the show’s final season, as the singer has described her 2013 stint on the series as the "worst experience of my life.” Carey has never shied away from criticising the show in the past, but when appearing on an Australian radio show Thursday, the singer went a little deeper into why she hated her ‘Idol’ experience so much.

Mariah CareyMariah doesn’t appear to have enjoyed her time on ‘American Idol’.

"It's so boring and so fake. I’m sorry ... when I say it's fake, I mean ... you have to make up things to say about people. Half the time the performances are good, you just be like 'It was good' and you feel like ending it there," she told Australia's KIIS-FM.

Nick Cannon To Divorce Mariah Carey, Who's Set To Begin Vegas Residency


Mariah Carey Nick Cannon

It doesn't come as a surprise looking at reports over the last few months with their separation and all, but it seems that Nick Cannon has finally filed for divorce from his diva wife of six years Mariah Carey.

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's marriage is finally over

According to reports in TMZ, Cannon officially filed for divorce before Christmas on December 12th 2014 proving the worst that fans could imagine, they won't be getting back together. It was saddening enough to hear that the pair had split towards the end of the summer last year, but Cannon's later praising of Carey (even admitting he loved her and being terribly upset over apparent nasty messages being sent to her from his fans) suggested that there may still be hope for the couple.

'American Idol''s last original judge Randy Jackson is finally stepping down from the show after an impressive 12 year stint as both a judge and a mentor. While there's been reports in previous years of his ever impending departure, this time it's for good.

The former musician and record producer has been a constant fixture of the TV singing competition since 2002, where he worked alongside Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell on the judging panel. As of 2014's Season 13, his role was changed from panel judge to in-house mentor, but now it's finally time to say goodbye. 'After 13 seasons, I felt now was the perfect time to leave American Idol', Randy Jackson announced in a statement to Deadline. 'I'm proud to have been a part of a series that discovered some incredible artists and will go down in history as one of the most successful television shows ever.'

Nick Cannon Mariah Carey Amber Rose Debra Lee

Hollywood's latest high-profile split is causing a flurry of uncomfortable rumours to fly around, as Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon separate after months of living apart and Cannon is quick to cover his Mariah themed tattoo.

We couldn't help but reel from the burn of the 'American Idol' host getting his tattoo covered so quickly. What was once a shoulder-spanning tribute to his wife is now becoming a large crucifix, which definitely suggests things are final between the pair. Cannon tried to keep things light when ET Online questioned him about it, insisting, 'When it's done, I'll show up to your house naked and I'm going to let you see all the work. I'm not even half way done with it.' He did admit, however, that the public spectacle that is his love life has been difficult to deal with. 'You want to say certain things or lash out', he said. 'Sometimes public opinion wants to paint you a certain way.'

As Mariah Silences Nick, Who Will Get Custody Of The Twins?


Mariah Carey Nick Cannon

The public is used to Hollywood marriages coming and going with the words ‘irreconcilable differences’ a showbiz phrase that glosses over the most controversial of splits. What very rarely happens, however, are revelations of truth by the famous individuals involved in very public relationship breakdowns - this is until Nick Cannon rolled on the scene.

Mariah Carey Nick Cannon

Some couples, like Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey, just look like they’ll be together forever. Not so, unfortunately, as the pair have been dogged by divorce rumours for a couple of weeks now. Recently, Cannon himself confirmed the rumours, saying for The Insider: “There is trouble in paradise…we have been living in separate houses for a few months," Cannon told The Insider. "...My main focus is my kids.”

Mariah Carey Discusses New Album's Title And Artwork


Mariah Carey

Queen Diva Mariah Carey has released the artwork and track listing for her upcoming album, titled 'Me.  I Am Mariah...The Elusive Chanteuse'.   Yep, that's really what she's called it.  There seems to be a little photoshop at play on the album cover, we’re almost certain that Mariah isn’t 6 foot 2 with legs like Elle Macpherson. We’ve not come to expect anything less from her though, so this isn’t too much of a surprise.

Mariah Carey new album Mariah Carey has released the title, track listing and artwork for her upcoming album

On the back cover is a self-portrait of the singer, allegedly the only self-portrait she has ever drawn. Above it the words, “I am Mariah.” Scribbled when she was just 3 and a half, the singer asks us not to judge the simplicity of the drawing, and explains in a short audio clip, “C’monnn, I was only 3 and a half. It was a creative visualisation of how I saw myself with the purity of a child’s heart before it was ever broken.” So, yeah, it’s a scribble.

Mariah Carey Following In Beyonce's Footsteps With New Album


Mariah Carey Beyonce Knowles

It seems as though Mariah Carey may be following in Beyonce’s footsteps when it comes to the release of her new album. Billboard revealed that Mariah will reveal full album details, including the title, track listing, music and artwork, simultaneously via digital partners, who have yet to be announced.

Mariah Carey Beyonce album Mariah Carey is expected to follow in Beyonce's footsteps, with a surprise album release

The move echoes Beyonce’s most recent album release for her 2013 self-titled album. The "Drunk In Love" singer's 2011 album “4” had not reaped the expected results, similarly Carey’s 2009 album “Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel” had seriously underperformed, resulting in the cancellation of a planned remix album. When Beyonce released “Beyonce”, her fifth studio album, in December 2013 there had been no prior announcements or forewarning.  The move was hugely beneficial, Mariah may be hoping for a similar outcome.

American Idol Recap: Candice Glover And Kree Harrison Deliver Despite Injury


American Idol Mariah Carey

In an injury-plagued American Idol, Candice Glover and Kree Harrison impressed the judges despite being injured. Harrison belted out Janis Joplin's Piece of My Heart while remaining static due to a pinched nerve.

“I feel like the show finally started tonight,” Randy Jackson said, not really noticing the contestant’s affliction. “That's how you come out and rock the stage. I love seeing this bluesy side of you. This girl can sing. She's in it to win it!” Keith Urban, though, noticed something was up, and forced Harrison into an explanation. “This is me giving you my all with my pinched nerve. I was hoping you wouldn't be able to tell,” she explained. “I knew something was going on,” said Keith. “10 out of 10 for your professionalism, Kree.” Nicki Minaj was equally impressed: “Girl, you could have had a pinched nerve, got on my nerve, got on several nerves. That was magnificent Miss Lady,” she beamed. “You're stunning. It's so natural. I think your voice was unmatched, I'm just obsessed with you.”

Another Motown Special? Predictable Week For American Idol, Janelle Arthur Saves The Day


American Idol Nicki Minaj Mariah Carey

Really, American Idol? Another Motown special? You’d think that with so much experience under their belts, and with world-class talent like Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey on board, the folks behind American Idol would be able to think of something a little more… how you say… challenging? or interesting, even, than yet another Motown-themed evening on American Idol. That’s what viewers were faced with last night though and once again, it is via the medium of Motown that the weekly winners and losers shall be decided.

So who were those winners and losers? Well, Nicki Minaj has already stated, unequivocally, that whoever wins this year’s American Idol, it will not be a male contestant. Hanging on by a thread, then, is Lazaro Arbos. Even the presence of a gaggle of backing singers and brass players couldn’t lift Lazaro’s performance above being mediocre. And as for his joint performance with Burnell Taylor and Davin Velez? Well, that was a disaster and he even admitted that he didn’t know the words to the song. It’s not looking good for Lazaro right now.

Mariah Carey Wardrobe Malfunction Blown Out Of Proportion - What Nipple-Slip?


Mariah Carey Jermaine Dupri

Why is everyone talking about a Mariah Carey wardrobe malfunction? What does 'wardrobe malfunction' even mean? The imagery that springs to mind is of a robotic wardrobe which has had water poured into it with sparks flying, gears grinding, eventually to a halt. That would be a 'wardrobe malfunction'. A very, very slight nip-slip is neither a malfunction nor something to be talked about. Half the world's adult population has breasts, or has no one noticed that yet?

Sometimes a lot of extra flesh is accidentally flashed. More often than not it's a woman and more often than not that woman is criticised for having a body that doesn't play by the rules. Carey's breasts' slight misdemeanour is hardly worth a mention. In fact, it shouldn't be mentioned. For women's bodies to come under such scrutiny is a scandal. Nevertheless, the faint whisp of a left areola was visible and that, apparently, is worth a conversation.

Carey appeared at the So So Def 20th Anniversary Concert in Atlanta last week. It was a celebration of her pals including Jermaine Dupri and it's a real shame that focus hasn't been kept on that far more important aspect of the event. US Weekly said that Carey gave the audience "quite a show" when  a 'breast popped out' as she raised her hands to wave to the audience. Photos from the 'malfunction' show almost nothing, the audience, not all of whom had the zoom-lens power of the photographers will definitely not have been able to see anything. Yes, Carey probably helped give them quite a show, but not for the reasons US Weekly claim, rather, simply because she's an enormous star and great friend to Jermaine Dupri etal

Mariah Carey Wardrobe Malfunction At Party - Strapless Dress 1, Mariah 0


Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey’s wardrobe malfunction at the So So Def 20th anniversary concert has caused the American Idol judge a spot of embarrassment last Saturday (February 23, 2013). You’d think that an entertainer with as many years in the industry under her belt as Mariah has would be far too savvy to fall foul of the ‘nip-slip’ but it would appear that that is not the case at all.

The unfortunate incident took place at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre, when Mariah was onstage wearing a strapless, curvy cream dress with metallic embellishments. As she wheeled out a cake to celebrate the anniversary of of her long-term collaborator Jermaine Dupri’s record label, the singer’s breast made a brief attempt at freedom and unbeknownst to Carey, her nipple popped out to say hello as she waved to fans, according to Us magazine. It wasn’t exactly the worst wardrobe malfunction in the world but these pop stars must rue the day the strapless dress was ever invented, when these things happen.

Mariah Carey And Nick Cannon's Valentine's Day Bath Interrupted By Surprise Visitor!


Mariah Carey Nick Cannon

Forget husband Nick Canon, there was someone else that Mariah Carey was sharing a romantic bubble bath with on Valentine’s day – her pup Jill E Beans! (See what she’s done there with her name?)

In fairness to Carey, the bath was actually meant for Nick, but whilst she was waiting for him to arrive (and tweeting pictures of herself doing so) she was interrupted by the surprise visitor. “Aaaah! Jill E Beans leaps to the tub In hopes of a splash champagne - whhhhhy?!” Carey wrote on Twitter, although to be honest on the accompanying picture she looked a lot happier than her pet, who looked like it was severely regretting its decision to dive on in.

Anyway, after all of that Mariah did eventually get out of the tub – and we presume Nick was there for a bit of it – because she then posted a pic of the pair of them ready to go out in New York. Mariah has the uncanniest knack of being able to look like she’s in the 1990’s no matter what year it is, and so it proved again as she wore her hair back in a ponytail, looking adoringly at her husband of a year. After that they went out for a ride in a horse drawn carriage through Central Park, before arriving back home where, Carey showed us, her bed had been covered in petals. Awww. We wonder if the dog interrupted that scene too.

"It Is What It Is" Says Mariah Carey Of Her Squabbles With Nicki Minaj


Mariah Carey Nicki Minaj

Mariah Carey is a diva. Nicki Minaj is a diva. Is it any wonder then that when you put the two together on a panel and add (oh dear) opinions to the mix, things are going to get heated?

Doubtless, this is exactly what the producers of American Idol had in mind when they came up with the combination. But lately, Mariah has been reluctant to add fuel to the fire. She made a very pacifistic comment in an interview with dnaindia.com, saying, “This is a very passionate panel. There are a lot of strong personalities. The fighting is what it is. This is American Idol. It is bigger than some stupid trumped-up thing. It is about the next superstar. The whole thing is convoluted. It is a distraction from the show and the contestants.”

Whilst this sounds very mature of her, is Mariah really fooling anybody? Let’s face it, the Kelly Clarksons and Adam Lamberts of American Idol come once in a blue moon and whilst a winner or finalist might rise up to some prominence if they play their cards right, talent is certainly not the only reason people watch the show for. It’s the drama, pure and simple. And whether it is a contestant openly lying on the show like Matthew Farmer did earlier this week, or two bickering pop stars (aka Mariah and Nicki), the turmoil is the main source of entertainment on Idol. So, when a combination like this happens, it’s not unfortunate, but rather a reason for the producers to pat themselves on the back. It’s probably an opportunity for the stars themselves to cash in, one way or another.

The Idol Judging Panel: Minaj Shines And Harmony Rules


Nicki Minaj Mariah Carey Keith Urban Randy Jackson

With a new panel and a whole new dynamic, this season of American Idol is going strong so far.

It looks like the driving force behind the revival are mostly the ladies – after the obligatory fight/feud/general beef (what’s the trendy term these days?) Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj seem to have reconciled in their mission to let as many hot guys as possible through the qualifying round. Nicki is her usual larger-than-life self, complete with eye-popping colour palette, (mostly) witty banter, and a ready comment for every contestant. Maybe her energy is exactly what the talent competition needed to get back on its feet. But the reason that Miss Minaj’s whole persona works on the show, is that it works with the other judges.

Mariah balances out Nicki’s zany personality with her calm, serene appearance (seriously, does anyone know what they have in those cups?), while Keith Urban is the nice guy every judging panel needs, in order for the viewer not to hate them. Meanwhile, Randy Jackson is just there to stir up the occasional spat, by egging on contestants and judges alike. It’s always clear, however, that any drama is mainly for the cameras and in overall, they all just get along. Just like one big, mismatched, reality TV family.

Mariah Carey Increased Security After Gun Threat From Nicki Minaj


Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey increased her security when she was threatened by Nicki Minaj on American Idol, Reuters reports. Keen to distance herself from Nicki’s uncivilised behaviour, Mariah has painted herself as the concerned and distinguished party in the whole affair, telling Barbara Waters in an interview “it felt like an unsafe work environment… Anytime anybody's reeling threats at somebody, you know, it's not appropriate… I'm a professional. I'm not used to that type of environment.”

Carey added that she hired extra security when 30 year old Minaj was heard to say “if I had a gun I would shoot that bitch,” referring to 42 year old Carey. Mariah told Waters that increasing her security “was the appropriate thing to do,” after her co-star threatened her, adding that she had her 20 month old twins with her on the road, as well as her husband Nick Cannon. Aware that the whole furore – whilst it may have been scary – could easily be written off as a publicity stunt aimed to increase American Idol’s ratings, Carey added “for all the drama, I hope it helps the show.”

When asked about how much money she was getting paid to be a judge on the TV singing talent contest, the figure of $18 million for the season was bandied about. “I think we’re in the ballpark, I can’t even talk about those things.”

Video: Mariah Carey Performs Neo-Soul Rendition Of 'All I Want For Christmas Is You'


Mariah Carey The Roots Questlove

Ok, so it wasn't quite neo-soul, but it did feature Questlove and The Roots as the backing band. Mariah Carey stopped by the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this week and was roped into performing her classic Christmas hit, still considered by many to be the finest of all the famous festive song.

The Roots took to their kid-sized toy instruments, including xylophone, bongos, rattlers, wood blocks and drums, while a chorus of children chimed in on background vocals - of course, Mariah's powerful vocals give things a bit of authenticity. However, we reckon the highlight of the evening was Questlove's holiday sweater - a disastrously cream Christmas zip-down creation. Fallon started things off, singing the ditty's opening lines, "I don't want a lot for Christmas. There is just one thing I need," before taking to the drums, tambourine and kazoo and letting Mariah take over. Writing on her Twitter page later, the 42-year-old singer wrote: "Join the fun + sing along to my festive 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' collabo with @jimmyfallon & @theroots!!!" Fallon tweeted, "@mariahcarey + theroots + Classroom Instruments. So fun."

As is becoming tradition, Mariah has been doing the Christmassy promotional rounds this year, last week performing her famous track at the annual tree-lighting ceremony at New York's Rockefeller Center.

Nicki Minaj Accuses Steven Tyler Of Racist Remark On Twitter


Nicki Minaj Steven Tyler Mariah Carey

 Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey is over, now the school kids are surrounding Minaj and Steven Tyler, chanting "Fight, fight!" over and over again, hoping to see some bloodshed before the teacher comes to break it all up. 

Tyler gave an interview to MTV, which didn't sit well with Minaj, you see. "You just have to give your opinion. It wasn't hard for me, but I would imagine it's hard for some people, and they need a manager to say 'Shut the f--- up, and just give them your opinion,'" Tyler said. "These kids, they just got out of a car from the Midwest somewhere and they're in New York City, they're scared to death; you're not going to get the best [out of them]. ... If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield! Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best of him out, as we did with Phillip Phillips. Just saying." Minaj is not happy, not at all, and she took to Twitter to air her grievances at what she believes to be a racist comment. "Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield??? Steven, you haven't seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet," she wrote. "I understand you really wanted to keep your job but take that up with the producers. I haven't done anything to you. That's a racist comment. You assume that I wouldn't have liked Bob Dylan??? why? black? rapper? what? go f--k yourself and worry about yourself babe."

She didn't stop there, and, clearly incensed, wrote, "LOL lets make him a shirt that says "No Coloreds Allowed" then escort him down 2 Barbara Walters so he can tell how he was threatened w/guns. When Steven 1st went on Idol he was ridiculed by his peers & fans alike. Called a sell out. So what does he do? Ridicule the next judge." Neither Tyler or Fox have responded to the tweets or claims made, E! reports. 

BAD25: Spike Lee's Michael Jackson Documentary Hits All The Right Notes


Spike Lee Michael Jackson Kanye West Justin Bieber Mariah Carey Stevie Wonder Martin Scorsese Wesley Snipes

Spike Lee’s Michael Jackson documentary BAD25 has been hailed as a success. Spike Lee, of course, has personal knowledge of working with Jackson – he directed his 1996 video ‘The Don’t Care About Us,’ so the documentary is lent an intimate air, as he conducts the interviews himself. Featured in the interviewee’s chair are a host of stars, all influenced, or touched by Jackson and the music of his hit album Bad (released 25 years ago this year).

Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey and Stevie Wonder are amongst those discussing Jackson’s creative vision, on the album that sold over 30 million copies and spawned five consecutive number ones. According to Boston.com, the film plays out with a series of oral accounts of the recording period. Lee speaks to all of the major players in the recording studio as ell as those involved in his videos and the accompanying tour (surprisingly, including the only solo North American tour that Jackson would ever headline).

Some of the cinematographic vignettes include footage of Martin Scorsese directing Michael Jackson (and Wesley Snipes, before he was famous) in the video for ‘Bad’ and Sheryl Crow, talking of the time that she worked as a back-up singer for Jackson. “The molecules changed in the room,” she said. Although Spike Lee is a vivacious character in his own right, he steps back and lets the interviewees do the talking here. The documentary will be aired this evening (November 21, 2012) at 9:30pm EST, on ABC.

Nicki Minaj Open To A Duet With Mariah Carey On American Idol


Nicki Minaj Mariah Carey

Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey may be TV's favourite warring couple at the moment, but that doesn't mean that the two may put their personal differences behind themselves in the name of music, with Minaj admitting that an on-air collab between her and her American Idol co-judge could be on the cards.

With the ongoing spat between them seemingly being cleared up (somewhat) by Nicki on her reality show, Nicki Minaj: My Truth, (and by that I mean that she has given her side of the story) the 'Starships' singer has also admitted that she would be more than willing to perform with Carey on the show. She told E!, who air her new three-part show, that she would be down with sharing a mic as long as Carey was too, saying: "I think people would be interested in seeing that."

The feud between the two started when it was announced that Minaj would be joining Carey as the new panelist for the ongoing season of American Idol, although some reports have stated that the feud goes back further than that. The altercation really reached boiling point during an audition early on in the series when the two came to blows over a contestant, with the Roman Reloaded hitmaker attacking Carey with a tirade not meant for sensitive ears, with footage of the rant making its way online. Minaj has since said that Carey had been winding her up throughout filming, and at the point of the argument she had reached boiling point.

Can Barack Obama Fix Nicki Minaj And Mariah Carey’s Busted Relationship?

Can Barack Obama mend Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey’s relationship on American Idol?

OK, we’re going to be honest; we hadn’t really considered this question until we heard Michael Yo of the Yo Show actually asking the US president if he was capable of such a thing, but now that the question’s out there, it’s surely worth thinking about!

Barack Obama appeared as a guest on The Yo Show and within seconds of having him on air, Michael had already posed the question that he thought the American voting public really wanted the answer to this: “Can you repair the relationship between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey on American Idol? That’s what the people wanna know.” Obviously used to having tricky questions thrown his way, Obama took it all in his stride and simply said that he had faith in the pair of divas to sort their own troubles out. “"I think that they are going to be able to sort it out, I am confident… I'm all about bringing people together, working for the same cause, I think both outstanding artists are going to be able to make sure that they're moving forward and not going backwards.”

Barack Obama Weighs Is On Mariah Carey, Nicky Minaj Feud


Mariah Carey Nicki Minaj

President Obama is right in the heat of the 2012 election campaign, however it's nice to see that the leader of the free world can still take time out of his busy day to talk about the issues that really matter. The president called into Y100!'s Michael Yo Show to comment on the question of the day - the feud between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj.

The president was quite diplomatic in answering the question of whether he could resolve the spat, stating that he believed the two would work out their differences. On being asked who he supported in the the pop star rivalry, he went with Mariah. "She's actually done some events for us. I've gotten to know her and Nick (Cannon), she's a wonderful lady. Nicki I don't know, but I've got her on my iPod," the leader of the free world commented.

For whatever reason, the fight between Carey and Minaj has been the talk of the internet as of late, with blows being exchanged in both directions. Minaj's recent outburst at Mariah Carey was followed by accusations from Carey's side that the other diva threatened to shoot her.

Girl Power At The 2012 American Music Awards: Nicki Minaj And Rihanna Lead The Way


Nicki Minaj Rihanna Justin Bieber Katy Perry Maroon 5 Drake Mariah Carey Adele Taylor Swift One Direction Kelly Clarkson Train Carrie Underwood Miranda Lambert Usher

Nicki Minaj and Rihanna are expected to clean up at the 2012 American Music Awards, with four nominations apiece, reports Reuters.

Rihanna is top of the table for the main category, as she wards off competition from Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Maroon 5 and Canadian rapper Drake for artist of the year. She’s also in line for female soul/R&B artist and best album, and will lock horns with Minaj for the female pop/rock artist category. Minaj could be recognized for her album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, in both the pop/rock and rap/hip hop categories this year, and she’s nominated for favorite rap artist, too. Minaj has been attracting extra attention recently; her very public feud with Mariah Carey on American Idol culminated in a strange gun threat, but most seem sure the ‘diva-off’ is being played up by Fox to boost the talent show’s viewership.

Elsewhere in the awards, teenage singer Bieber landed three nominations this year, tying with British boy band One Direction, Maroon 5, Drake and R&B star Usher. Adele and Taylor Swift – who dominated the awards last year - received one nomination apiece. Swift will fight for female country artist against Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert, while Adele was nominated in the favorite adult contemporary artist category alongside Kelly Clarkson and Train. The AMA’s - which will be celebrating its 40th anniversary this year - are determined by fans through online voting, which starts on Tuesday. The ceremony and performance show will be broadcast live from Los Angeles on November 18.


Mariah Carey Threatened By Nicki Minaj? : Nick Cannon Gets Involved


Nicki Minaj Mariah Carey Nick Cannon Barbara Walters

Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey: a feud made in TV heaven, for the producers anyway. But now the rivalry has got so far – with Minaj threatening to shoot Carey – Nick Cannon has stepped in to give his opinion, reports The New York Daily News.

But it’s not the protective husband speech Mariah, and us, were perhaps expecting, with Cannon stating that he “wasn’t concerned” over Minaj’s supposed threat to “shoot” his better half. “I wasn't concerned," Cannon told E! News. "That's exactly what you called it was drama. With drama, it's theatrics. I'm not worried about that stuff." When he was asked about the supposed gun threat, Cannon laughed, saying: "I don't know. I wasn't there. It made for good news. It sounded good, right? Good job, Fox." His wife, Mariah, doesn’t seem so sure, and she’s reportedly beefed up the ranks of her security entourage, just be safe.

The controversy started (the gun controversy, anyway) when Barbara Walters told The View, “She said that when Nicki walked off the set, multiple people heard Nicki say, ‘If I had a gun I would shoot the bitch’”. Minaj has a history of threatening to shoot rivals: the 29-year-old super-star put out a lyrical hit on fellow rapper Remy Ma in a 2008 freestyle rap. Cannon is probably right; this whole thing has been blown out of proportion, and Fox are loving the extra exposure, but whilst gun threats are being bandied about, no one’s going to sit back and ignore it.

The claims have been made public via Barbara Walters, who recounted a conversation that she'd had with Carey on the ABC show The View, regarding video footage of Nicki cussing Mariah during the filming of American Idol. Although the footage was not completely clear, Nicki could be heard referring to Mariah as "her f***ing highness and saying that she would no longer put up with her.

Fox News report that Walters had a phone conversation with Carey, who told her "when Nicki walked off the set, multiple people heard Nicki say, `If I had a gun I would shoot the (adjective unspoken by Walters) bitch." Apparently, after a meeting that both Nicki and Mariah attended, Nicki said to her newfound nemesis "I love you but we might fight again," to which Mariah answered "no, we will not." Walters also revealed that Mariah has felt the situation so severe that she has hired extra security, saying that she "doesn't feel comfortable, emotionally." She has said though, that she intends to continue with the show because she loves it and loves mentoring the contestants.

Nicki Minaj has been invited onto Barbara Walters' show to give her side of the story but has so far has responded with a string of Twitter posts, such as "Hey yAll. Lets just say nicki said smthn about a gun. Ppl will believe it cuz she's a black rapper. Lmao. I'll then hit up Barbara n milk it" and "I don't call tmz n Barbara Walters cuz I stand on my own two feet. Never needed an army. God is good. Insecurity is as cruel as the grave." American Idol has only been filming for a couple of weeks, though we've long known that Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj were likely to come to blows. If one of the two judges have already descended into threatening to shoot the other, though, heaven only knows what the live shows are going to be like!

Jennifer Lopez's Daughter Emme Steals Show At Paris Fashion Week

Jennifer Lopez and her daughter Emme stole the show at Chanel’s Paris Fashion Week show yesterday (October 2, 2012). The former American Idol judge took her four year-old daughter to the Grand Palais, along with her boyfriend Casper Smart, to take in the new spring / summer 2013 collection from the label’s creative director, Karl Lagerfeld.

Female First have published snaps of the couple, along with Emme, enjoying the catwalk show from the front row. Lopez was looking chic in a low-cut white dress and Emme wore a pink Chanel dress, with a white cardigan and pink shoes. They even managed to overshadow the fact that Kanye West was there to see the show, as well. As for the show itself, Lagerfeld used wind turbines to display his new collection; after the show, he said “It's more about the mood of the times, not something you have to translate. It's all about the wind, it's in the air. I started sketching in Central Park and it was so hot that I wanted fresh air.”

Lopez was looking relaxed – most likely glad that she has left the drama of American Idol behind her. We bet she’ll be glad that it was Mariah Carey and not her that was on the end of Nicki Minaj’s foul-mouthed rant, which made its way online today, courtesy of TMZ. Jennifer Lopez left the show at the end of last season, to pursue her pop career and seems to be enjoying some time with her children and boyfriend, as well.


Diva Strop! Nicki Minaj Caught Cursing At Mariah Carey On American Idol


Nicki Minaj Mariah Carey Keith Urban Randy Jackson

Nicki Minaj has been caught cussing at Mariah Carey on American Idol. It was never going to be long before the two divas came to blows but we thought Carey would be the first to lose her cool. Apparently not! TMZ have posted footage of Nicki Minaj ranting at American Idol’s production staff and at Mariah herself. The footage is a little blurry and TMZ had to bleep out quite a large portion of what was coming out of Nicki’s mouth. You can see Keith Urban sat between Nicki and Mariah looking exasperated and Randy Jackson is stood at the end of the table, equally powerless.

Not all of the rant is audible but you can hear Nicki saying “I told them I'm not f**kin' putting up with her f**king highness over there. Figure it the f**k out. Figure it out… I'm not gonna sit here every f**king minute to have you come down and harass me every minute everyday.” According to the report, Nicki also threatened to “knock out” Mariah but said it before the camera was recording.

It’s hard to know what the American Idol bosses will be thinking about this latest drama between Nicki and Mariah. In essence, it will probably be good for the show as it’s bound to get more and more viewers intrigued and tuning in. After all, one of the main reasons they revamped the judging line-up was too boost falling viewer figures. What better than a foul-mouthed rant from a rapper in a pink wig to do that?

Wisegirls Review


Weak
Mariah Carey gives us another peek at some of the magic we saw in Glitter here in Wisegirls, a ridiculous look at three waitresses (Carey, Mira Sorvino, and Melora Walters) working in a New York Italian restaurant. Despite all the melodrama (Sorvino's got a dead boyfriend, and so on, and so on) these wisegirls are at least not totally horrific -- except, surprisingly, for Walters, who looks truly haggard here. Don't get me wrong, the movie is crap, but at least I didn't kill myself while I was watching it.

Glitter Review


Terrible
After enduring Mariah Carey's film debut, Glitter, I'm reminded of a bit from Chris Rock's Bigger and Blacker. In response to women saying that they can raise a child without a man, Rock says, "You can drive a car with your feet, but that don't mean it should be done." To that I say, you can give Mariah Carey a movie, but that certainly don't mean it should be done.

Sure, there are plenty of pop star film vehicles out there -- from The Beatles' A Hard Day's Night to the Spice Girls' Spice World -- but none have been so vapidly pointless or laughable as Glitter. Everything about this complete tripe is ludicrous.

Mariah Carey's Accidental Exposure In Germany


Mariah Carey Janet Jackson MTV

German fans of pop star Mariah Carey were in for more than they bargained for when the singing sensation accidentally flashed fans. Carey suffered from an accidental "wardrobe malfunction" during filming for a German television show, when her dress fell apart, accidentally flashing her breasts at stunned fans, before being rescued by stage-hands. 

While performing in Germany, Mariah Carey's dress fell open.

The star's experience was similar to that of Janet Jackson's infamous incident in 2004, which coined the phrase "wardrobe malfunction" in the first place. After briefly exposing herself, Carey was saved from further shame by the show's floor managers, who turned off the lights, allowing her to cover herself, recover her clothing, and leave the stage whilst hidden from view, according to a report from MTV news, who were present at the time.

The Bachelor Review


Weak

You know something is just not right about a movie when even the most insignificant supporting characters have more charisma and personality than the leads.

Such is the case with "The Bachelor," a comedy about an heir to a $100 million fortune who has 24 hours to get married or be cut off without a dime.

Chris O'Donnell (Robin in the recent "Batman" movies) is said heir, a commitment-o-phobe from central casting named Jimmy whose persnickety, cantankerous grandfather (Peter Ustinov) kicks the bucket and reveals in his videotaped will that -- surprise! -- he's a millionaire. But grandpa is also obsessed with begetting a family legacy and decrees that Jimmy, his soul heir, gets zip unless he's married by his 30th birthday. Unfortunately grandpa has the bad timing to die two days before the deadline.
