Warning: Excessive Use Of The 'V' Word
Oh boy. Remember a few months back when Courtney Love‘s own daughter (Francis Bean Cobain) suggested that twitter ban her mother from further use of the site? Well, they didn’t take her advice and Mama Courtney didn’t take the hint. But at least this time she’s not spreading vicious rumors about Dave Grohl hitting on her daughter. And, in fact, you could argue that these are helpful tweets; tweets that offer lyrical clarification from one musician to another. But then again, it’s Courtney Love… tweeting in reaction to Lana Del Rey‘s cover of Nirvana‘s Heart-Shaped Box. So yeah. She probably wasn’t trying to be all that helpful. But I’ll let you be the official judge of that! Take a listen to Lana‘s cover (which I thought was quite good) and the check out the twitter madness inside.
"Kile's Passing Will Not Be in Vain"
Some of you may know that Usher‘s stepson Kile Glover, who was critically injured in a jet ski accident and recently taken off life support, was laid to rest yesterday, July 27th. TMZ has photos from the funeral, but I was reluctant to share them; I really can only take so much and it was a sad sight to see. But they’re still posted on the website, if you’d like to see them here. I was hoping there’d be some more positive news I could share with you guys about this and here it is! Tameka Foster, Usher‘s ex-wife and Kile‘s mother, has spoken out (at least on twitter) since Kile‘s funeral and made an important announcement about a fund she’s starting. Deets inside.
Fresh on the heels of her newest video for Murda Bizness (featuring T.I., we saw it here) Australian rapper Iggy Azalea made a pretty big announcement. She is currently learning to walk the runway for New York Fashion Week (which is huge!), but she stressed on Twitter last night that she is not confirmed. Still, exciting!
Rumor Has It She will Make $18 Million in One Season
Yesterday we learned officially from Fox that Mariah Carey has agreed to join American Idol as one of their new judges for the forthcoming season. Today we hear from Mimi herself about her new gig. When the confirmation came yesterday, it was reported that MC would be making somewhere between $12-$17 million to be judge for one season of AI … today we are hearing she will be making more than that. Damn, girl. Get that money. Click below for these updates to the Mimi on Idol story. More »
"Relaxing with MY @ndgordon. Who I love so very much"
When last we saw Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only begotten child of the late Whitney Houston, here on the blog it was May and she was representing her mother at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards. The last time we heard from the girl personally on her official Twitter profile, it was March and she was just starting to talk about her love affair with her so-called “pseudo brother” Nick Gordon (the young man that Whitney helped raise alongside Bobbi). Bobbi Kris has not been on Twitter since March … until now. She surfaced on Twitter recently to let us all know that she is still very much in love with Nick Gordon. More »
So yesterday was awkward for me. I posted those pictures of Rihanna on vacay and told myself I wouldn’t post any more. But today she reeled me back onto her twitter account with promises of Instagram pics featuring more gorgeous things I can’t afford– mainly yachts. So come get jealous-ified with me and check out more bikini shots and naughty language via hash tags from badgalriri herself. Good times, good times!

Big News from Mimi
Remember back in June when it was believed that Mariah Carey was on the verge of announcing the release of new music? Yeah, well, I’ve got a great update from Mimi herself about the forthcoming release of a new single titled Triumphant.

Yeah, well, apparently those talks are still very serious … and it’s apparently becoming a possibility that she will sign on for the show. Lots of great MC news to share, read on to learn more.

She Doesn't Need A Bigger Boat
Ready to feel a teeny bit insecure about your body/lack of yacht? Just kidding! Do not feel insecure about these photos (like I kind of did for 35 seconds)! Feel good about the invention of twitter and about the fact that your life, wherever you are right now, is as amazing as Rihanna‘s (yacht or no yacht)! Ok, now that I’ve built you up, you’re ready to check out the photos Rihanna‘s been tweeting while on vacation in Capri, Italy. Her view from the boat alone is kind of a big deal. Enjoy!

Yesterday we learned the happy news that all 5 members of Backstreet Boys are reuniting for the forthcoming 20th anniversary of the boy band and today we get to check in with a group of their forebears. The members of New Kids on the Block, in an apparent show of solidarity for Donnie Wahlberg, appear to have grown mustaches together. Donnie shared a photo of the mostly shirtless group showing off their new facial hair as well as a video of the shaving of his ‘stache. Apparently, this is of great import to NKOTB fans so … click below and enjoy the hairy bounty. More »
