First Dibs: Mariah Carey Parts Ways With Manager Randy Jackson

Kanye West gives us yet another reason to see the new Anchorman movie, Queens of the Stone Age debut two new songs, and David Bowie’s new video temporarily gets yanked from YouTube.

  • Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson are still fellow judges on American Idol, but the singer has dropped the music executive as her manager. Carey cited “hectic” schedules as the reason for the split, but fans are left wondering if her troubling season on Idol is the real culprit. [MTV]
  • Wow, 2013 is shaping up to be a stellar year for Kanye. A baby, a new album, and…a cameo in Anchorman: The Legend Continues? The rap superstar was seen filming with actors Christina Applegate and Paul Rudd in Atlanta. Any way we can request a scene with the almighty Ron Burgundy? [All Hip Hop]
  • David Bowie, no stranger to pushing the envelope, has run afoul of the higher-ups at YouTube. The video for his single, “Next Day,” was removed because of its references to Christianity. The clip was resurrected, albeit with an explicit content warning. [E!]
  • Queens of the Stone Age keep feeding the hype machine for their upcoming album. While at a Belgian radio station, the band performed two songs from …Like Clockwork, only making us salivate all the more. [Stereogum]
