Mariah Carey‘s five-range octave doesn’t matter in the big scheme of things because who can’t sing in a five range octave? Yes, you’re detecting sarcasm, but according to Mariah’s ex-husband/music industry executive Tommy Mottola, he is responsible for the pop star’s success. The New York Post wrote a three page story on Mottola’s memoir Hitmaker, in which he details his account of his four year marriage to Mariah. The conclusion? Mariah can thank his “obsessiveness” for her successful career. Umm, ok. Read more…
Mimi better watch who she’s bossing around! Apparently pals (she has friends?!) close to the singing star are placing bets on how long her marriage to Nick Cannon will last, and they’re guessing “six months, tops.” The reason? Nick is stuck doting on his bride 24/7, and allegedly spends more time lugging her shopping bags around than he does cuddling with his older love. A source spills that,
“Mariah?s assistants and friends call him ?Whipped Nick? behind his back. They have little respect for him because he won?t stand up for himself.?
Well if he won’t, we will! Mariah, leave your man alone! Otherwise he’ll be leaving you – and fast. [MSNBC]
If an already married celebrity re-weds her youthful husband of two months and no one’s there to film it, does it count? Apparently not! Rumor has it that Mariah Carey has canceled a second round of nuptials to Nick Cannon because of a lack of public interest. “Mariah was willing to pay for the wedding, but the way she hoped to pay for the wedding was through the sale of photos. No one was interested,” says a snitch.
Wow, she’s running these personal decisions tied to her emotional life by the media before she proceeds. Bascially, she’s leaving things up to us! Us! Who’s a good celebrity? Who’s a good celebrity? That’s right! Mariah’s a good celebrity! Now roll over, play dead and write us some more No. 1’s! [MSNBC]
Celebrities LOVE sloppy seconds – the minute some star dumps a lover, another famous freak is there to pick up the tossed trash. It’s LA’s own little green movement: Reduce the amount of single celebs out there; Reuse each other’s exes, then Recycle them when the relationship ends! They may not be saving the planet, but they sure are saving celebs from never-ending singledom (which is obvs more important).
Kanye West is the latest celeb to score off of a rejected romance, as the rap diva’s been spotted getting cozy with Nick Cannon‘s ex-fiancee, model Selita Ebanks. The pair were cuddling at the NYC club Tenjune and attempted to discreetly exit together. “They were trying to be inconspicuous,” says a token spy, “but they were smiling and walking real close, and they hopped in a waiting car together laughing and took off.”
Even worse is Cam Diaz, who had dinner Sunday night with Jennifer Aniston‘s ex-boy toy, Paul Sculfor. Jen, as we all know, is currently busy making out with Cam’s ex John Mayer in pools across America. And with that, Hollywood waste is eliminated!
Mr. Mariah Carey was busy rubbing shoulders with the likes of Quincy Jones and Diddy at the celeb-packed party at Foxwoods last week, when his wifey called him up making demands. Mimi was at a photoshoot for Elle magazine, and wanted her man there to watch her “work.” Nick was summoned to the shoot and stayed with his sugar-mama until the shoot wrapped at 5:3o AM. Not the best way to spend your night, but it could have been worse – Mariah’s assistant was also around with a blender in hand, constantly making protein shakes for her boss. Divas do it right, natch! [NYP]
Uh oh - Nick Cannon has created a monster, a monster who is busy planning a massive second wedding to her new young lover! Yikes. A big-mouthed source blabbed some of the details of Mariah Carey‘s second big day, alleging that Naomi Campbell is on the wedding guest list (she’ll be throwing Blackberries instead of bouquets). The spy also said that, ?She wants over 2,000 guests and the budget will be well over $4 million and she?ll have at least 14 bridesmaids.? Hot damn! That’s not a party, that’s a parade!
Wedding #2 is supposedly taking place here in NYC over the next six weeks, so we’ll be on watch. If you see a giant white blob floating toward you (perhaps riding on a giant butterfly?), look out! Mrs. Mimi’s getting married, and it should be a sight to behold. [MSNBC]
We had no idea that Mariah Carey‘ was lugging around a secret boyfriend until early 2008, but perhaps we were just blinded by her butterfly rings and didn’t see him standing next to her. The mystery man is producer Mark Sudack, and he stuck by his emancipated gal pal for close to four years. He even worked on her recent hit album, E=MC2. So guess who was totally shocked by her whirlwind love affair and marriage with Nick Cannon? Yep, you guessed it. “He never thought she would go off and marry someone else,” a Sudack pal revealed to Us. “He?s heartbroken and shocked.”
So are we, Mark Sudack. So are we.
Awwww. These two are still so adorable together! How long will that last? Nick Cannon rented out a Six Flags last night as a surprise to his sweetie, who rolled up to the amusement park in a black Rolls Royce. Inside was a party of super famous friends celebrating their recent spontaneous nuptials. The bash was allegedly supposed to go until midnight, and included Will Smith and Stevie Wonder on the guest list. But perhaps they were also celebrating a new addition to their (also new) family? Mariah and Nick are already supposedly creating a nursery, and one of the singer’s assistants called up fancy baby boutique Petit Tresor and asked about fabric samples featuring butterflies! Ohhhhh, it’s a sign! [NYDN]
