The new season of ‘American Idol’ premieres next week, and if you’ll be watching along with us chances are it’s because you want to see the drama between new judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey. At Tuesday’s TV Critics Press Tour, the two divas got into it again, trading barbs and shade. They had a tense exchange, but otherwise kept it cute.
“We’re professionals. Have you ever had an argument with someone you’ve worked with?” Minaj said after repeated questions Tuesday about her reported feud with new fellow judge Carey.”This was sort of one-sided,” interjected Carey, wearing a smile. “No, it wasn’t,” snapped back Minaj. When later asked if they were getting along, Mariah had this to say; “The whole thing is convoluted … It’s a distraction from the show, and it’s a distraction from the contestants and it’s unfair to them. It shouldn’t be about us.”
I agree, but we all know that’s not what the producers of the show want, even Nicki admitted the big draw of the show is the “drama.”
I doubt this truce will last long, and frankly I see no problem with the two of them not being BFFs. In a ‘Nightline’ interview with Barbara Walters on Monday night, Carey was asked about a line in Nicki’s song “Hell Yeah,” where she says “I’m quick to check a bitch if she is out of line.” Mariah responded with a quick, and hilarious, “Don’t know. I didn’t know she sang. I thought she rapped. Or whatever.”
‘American Idol’ premieres it’s 12th season on Wednesday January 16 at 8 p.m. on FOX, will you be watching?
It wasn’t a happy Thanksgiving for Halle Berry as her fiance Olivier Martinez fought with her ex boyfriend Gabriel Aubry at her Hollywood Hills home on Thursday. Aubry was arrested for investigation of battery and then released on $20,000 bail. He is scheduled to appear in court on on December 13th.
According to reports, Gabriel arrived at Halle’s home Thanksgiving morning to drop off their daughter Nahla, then he and Olivier got into an altercation. Martinez, 46, suffered a broken hand and neck injuries and Aubry, 36, received a broken rib and possible head injury.
Both were later treated at the hospital. “Gabriel attacked Olivier and Olivier defended himself,” a source tells People. After he was released from the hospital he was booked for a private persons arrest for battery. Additionally, People confirms that an emergencyprotective order was granted requiring Aubry to stay 100 yards away from Berry, Martinez and Nahla.
Halle has been fighting to bring Nahla to France with her, but her request was denied by a judge last month. Berry maintained that France was a safer place for her and her child to live because the country has stronger paparazzi laws. No doubt that this may have played a part in the fight, but why are people blaming Halle for two grown ass men going WWF in her home?
My hope is that Nahla witnessed none of this and these people get it together for her sake.
Just when we thought Elton John could be ANY bitchier, he out-bitches himself. Luckily for us, his rage always seems directed toward Madonna. So, here we go again.
During an interview with an Australian TV chat show which aired on Sunday night, the Bitter Queen Bitch was quite vocal about the otherBitter Queen Bitch, addressing Madonna’s latest MDMA tour:
“Why is she such a nightmare? Her career is over, I can tell you that. Her tour has been a disaster and it couldn’t happen to a bigger c***.”
He continued, “If Madonna had any common sense, she would have made a record like Ray of Light, stayed away from the dance stuff, and just been a great pop singer and made great pop records, which she does brilliantly. But no, she had to prove that she was like…” There, Elton trailed off, but then continued, “And she looks like a f***ing fairground stripper.” He also complained, “She’s been so horrible to Gaga” — referring to Lady Gaga, who’s godmother to Elton’s son Zachary.
