Stevie Nicks Weighs In On American Idol Drama: Stands With Team Mariah Carey, But Is Sorry For Threatening Nicki Minaj

Everybody has got two-cents to share when it comes to last week’s fight between American Idol judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey. Host Ryan Seacrest and fellow judge Keith Urban both made attempts to mend the fissure, while The Voice judge Cee Lo relished the news as an opportunity to knock the rival program. And so while we await for word from Britney Spears and Team X Factor, we are delighted to hear report that retired Idol coach and true-and-through rock goddess Stevie Nicks has chimed in! And being a woman who knows a thing or two about drama, boy did she chime. Team Nicki, you might want to stand back for this. Read more…

Waka Flocka Says The Darndest Things: Supports President Obama, Wouldn’t Choose Rihanna If He Were Chris Brown And Will Block You On Twitter

Waka Flocka is not the person to ask a question to if you don’t want an unfiltered answer. No matter the subject. In his recent interview with 105.1′s The Breakfast Club we learned there is one topic he will opt for the safe “no comment” answer. And that topic is Kanye and Kim Kardashian. Everything else is fair game. Read more…

Do You Agree With Billboard Crowning Rihanna The Top Pop Artist Of The Last 20 Years?

Billboard Crowns Rihanna Top Pop Artist Of The Last 20 Years

Is Rihanna worthy of the gold throne she’s seated in, in the above photo? Billboard thinks so as they’ve chosen her as the top pop artist of the last 20 years. With only seven years under her belt Rihanna beat out veterans Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Usher and Celine Dion. As far as her peers she toppled her bestie Katy Perry, Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Chris Brown. Part of Riri’s success can be attributed to her ability to dish out catchy hit after hit. Her hooks hook you. No pun intended. The chorus and hooks immediately come to mind when you hear just the titles of “We Found Love,” “Where Have You Been,” “Umbrella,” “Birthday Cake” and countless others. Is Rihanna’s formula for mastering an infectious song why she leaves her counterparts slouching in the dust? Read more…

Nicki and Mariah American Idol Feud Is Getting Nasty, Barbara Walters Gets Involved

The Idol rumor mill is spinning out extra-nasty news today, with reports that Mariah Carey-Nicki Minaj drama have escalated from the initial maybe a little side-eye and screaming matches to alleged gun taunts. That’s right, according to Barbara Walters, Mariah says Nicki said, “If I had a gun, I would shoot the bitch.” Barbara versus the Barbz, dem babies and guns — has it really come to this?

As today’s story goes: Walters called her “good friend” Mariah this morning to hear her side of the story, and then reported back on their conversation this morning on The View, saying that the video is “troublesome, but that’s not what really worried her.” As Walters relays it:

“She said that when Nicki walked off the set, she heard multiple say, ‘If I had a gun, I would shoot the [bleep] bitch.’ [audience gasp] And she said there were staff members who heard, there were hairdressers, producers, other people. She said she is is very concerned, she is with her twins, she doesn’t feel that anything would happen. I am quoting now, but “nicki is unpredictable and Mariah says she can’t take a chance and she has hired extra security.” Read more…

A Battle Between The Divas Nicki Minaj Vs. Mariah Carey: Who Are You Rolling With?

Nicki Minaj vs. Mariah Carey In American Idol Beef

“It was all good just a week ago” in the words of Kanye West. Perhaps everything wasn’t copacetic between the two new American Idol mega diva judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj as they initially led us to believe. Yesterday a heated argument during auditions between the self-proclaimed Barbie and Mimi was caught on tape. From what TMZ gathered, Nicki can be heard cursing Mariah out. “I told them I’m not f—— putting up with her f—– highness over there,” said Nicki. “Figure it the f— out. Figure it out.” As the story grows Nicki is catching a lot of flack from fans, viewers and the like for the tongue lashing she gave the pop legend. Read more…

Idol Insanity! Nicki Minaj Threatens To Knock Mariah Carey Out (VIDEO)

When it was announced that Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey would each occupy a seat at the judges table on the upcoming season of American Idol, most everyone hoped that the pairing of these two divatastic juggernauts would lead to some serious D-R-A-M-A. Well, much to the delight of everyone who has been bored silly by the shade-free relationship between Britney Spears and Demi Lovato on The X-Factor, tensions flared BIG TIME earlier today between the Queen of Young Money and the one and only Mimi.

According to a report filed this evening by TMZ, things got HEATED between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey during a round of auditions that were being taped in North Carolina this afternoon. The two apparently disagreed over the merits of a contestant’s performance, which led to Nicki to shout this amazing barb at show producers: “I told them, I’m not f***in’ putting up with Her F***in’ Highness over there.” Then, according to TMZ, Nicki threatened to “knock” Mariah Carey out. (!!!) While this startling exchange did not ultimately result in blows, you can bet this is the kind of thing that might never completely blow over. (Especially considering Minaj and Carey were reportedly beefing only TWO DAYS into taping!)

We’re not taking sides in this battle, because we love both of the former VH1 Divas in equal measure, but we can tell you one thing: We can’t wait for the lucky 13th season of American Idol to premiere in January 2013!

Good Singer, Bad Dancer: 14 Artists With Tremendous Pipes Who Never Quite Figured Out How To Move (GIF WALL)

  

  

For every Michael, Beyoncé and Usher, there’s a Christina, Mariah or Rihanna. Try as they might, the latter group of hot pop acts just can’t coordinate that whole singing-while-dancing thing. Their beats and belting may be tight on the radio, but when it comes to rocking dance moves in a music video, even some of the best sirens fall flat. For your amusement, check out these hilarious GIFs (you’re welcome) of crooners we adore who demonstrate some of the worst rump shaking we’ve ever seen. Debate our list in the comments below and, more importantly, let us know whose lack of rhythm we failed to catch.

Mariah Carey - “Shake It Off

Moroccan and Monroe weren’t even zygotes yet, but Mariah looks like she was practicing serious mom moves in this video. Luckily, Mimi’s vocal acrobatics helped us shake off the memory of her awful wannabe thug life bleacher rocking, so all is forgiven.

Mariah Carey Says There Is No Feud With Her And Nicki

Only a couple days have passed since the new lineup of American Idol judges were officially announced, but the rumors of a brewing feud between new judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey have buzzed since Nicki’s name was thrown in the pot as one of the potential judges. Nicki and MC join Keith Urban and Randy Jackson for American Idol’s 12th season. MTV News stopped by the Idol set where the legendary diva shut down any and all chatter about any turmoil. “How are we gonna feud in two days?” she laughed. “A feud takes a little longer to spread out [than that].” There it is straight from the five octave range vocalist’s mouth.
