Mariah & Nick – The Rumors are True!?

by (@katespencer)

Take this with a 17 carat grain of salt, but the NY Post is reporting that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are indeed engaged to be married. The ring, allegedly purchased by Nick, cost her man $2.5 million and was purchased at Jacob the jeweler. The massive rock is 17 carats and has a 10 carat stone surrounded by pink and purple diamonds (obviously – this is Mariah “Butterfly” Carey we’re talking about). No one even knew these two were together a month ago – including the happy couple. Maybe that means this marriage is meant to last? [NYPost]

Is Mimi’s Ring a Gift From Nick Cannon?

Sooooooo that rock can’t really be from Nick Cannonor could it? Nick himself didn’t deny the claim, and got a bit awkward when asked about the bling buzz yesterday. “I can’t even know what to say,” Nick stammered to MTV News. “She’s probably the most festive, remarkable person I’ve ever met.”

That’s not a denial! We were a bit skeptical about Nick possibly giving Mimi a giant rock, so we decided to examine the engagement ring he gave to his ex-fiancee Selita Ebanks after proposing in Times Square. We made quite a discovery! The rings are not only both huge, they look remarkably alike. If Mariah’s ring is from Nick, it’s obvious what kind of rocks he likes to buy his ladies!

ScarJo Acts and Sings In New Video

by

Not content with being known to the world as a curvaceous, platinum actress, Scarlett Johansson is branching out into the world of singing. For her first album, she’s tackled the Tom Waits songbook, and for the first video, she’s created a bleached out, weary look at a day in the life of a starlet. Fittings, make-up, commercials for something, visiting with author Salman Rushdie and forlornly looking out the window are the action in “Falling Down”….tough life!

Anybody else think this has a Lost in Translation feel to it, except this time she’s the worn-down Bill Murray character?

Heidi Rocks Old Outfit at Fancy Gala

Heidi, Heidi, Heidi. Seriously, you change your boobs and face, but you can’t even change your clothes? After much gossipy fanfare, Heidi – and her boy-troll Spencer – showed up at the White House Correspondents dinner this weekend in Washington DC wearing the same exact outfit she had donned at an appearance earlier in the week. For shame! We’ve got the photographic evidence above as proof: on the left is our plastic heroine this weekend, and on the right she’s hawking her clothes at Kitson in LA, just a week earlier! You’d think she would have learned something while selling out in Hollywood.

We’ve got pics of all the other well-dressed stars who showed up at the White House this weekend below. For some shots of Heidi and Spencer desecrating the American flag at national monuments in our nation’s capital, click here! Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Mariah Says I Do to Big Rock

by (@katespencer)

mariah_ring.jpg

Mimi’s been known to sport some bling in her day (butterfly rings, anyone?) but this rock – worn noticeably on her engagement finger this weekend – is makin’ a statement! I mean seriously, who could she possible be engaged too? The number one singer has been linked to Nick Cannon recently, but he’s a newly single guy who can’t possibly be looking to settle down right this second. Our guess: she’s engaged to herself. I mean seriously, once you’ve been with Mariah, how could you be with anyone else?

Two Poets Win Madonna Tickets

by

Madonna A couple of weeks ago, we asked you to write four lines of poetry for a chance to win tickets to Madonna’s April 30 concert in New York. We received a whopping 7,669 poems. Some are funny. Some are serious. We wish that we could give all of you a pair of tickets, but then Madge would have to move her show from the intimate Roseland Ballroom to Madison Square Garden. Here are the talented (and lucky) winners.

Jordan, from Illinois

I distinctly remember a road trip reflection
And the moving, grooving sounds of an Immaculate Collection
I’d cry “Track 15!” like a backseat DJ
Letting my Baptist minister father know his son was so gay

Bradford, from New Jersey

Through the years worship forced me to wear everything from jelly bracelets to Kabballah strings
I sported some really bad roots and even rocked some tooth bling
Blew my paychecks on Pilates to look lean and mean
But through it all, Madonna is and always will remain my mother_@#_ing Queen
