First Dibs: Why Is Usher’s Former Nanny Suing Him?

What are Nicki Minaj's real thoughts about the music business? Who's setting his sights on Paula Abdul? And could Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green be returning to The Voice?

  • A woman who once cared for Usher’s young boys has filed a lawsuit against the R&B singer for unpaid wages and an abrupt termination. Cecilia Duncan claims she was only hired for part-time work, but frequently performed duties beyond her allotted hours. She’s seeking a six-figure sum in damages. [Daily Mail]
  • In an interview for Teen Vogue, Nicki Minaj compared the music industry to high school, saying she feels there are too many mind games and "popularity contests" in the entertainment world. And despite all the drama, Minaj pledges to keep it real. [Vibe]
  • Arsenio Hall might be trying to make Paula Abdul forever his girl. The late-night legend dated the former American Idol judge in the late ‘80s, but the two reportedly are rekindling the fire years later. We can do nothing but emphatically pump our fists. [Bossip]
  • It looks like Christina Aguilera is set to return to The Voice, following her break to promote her latest album. Cee Lo Green, who also took a hiatus for another project, is currently in talks to come back also. Take note, American Idol. [MTV]
