"I'm not f*ckin' putting up with her f*ckin' highness over there."
Oh man! Things got SERIOUSLY heated during American Idol auditions yesterday when Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey got into a screaming match (that involved cussing) during auditions … which was, thankfully, caught on video. Ever since Idol casting started floating around Mariah Carey AND Nicki Minaj as possible judges (on the same panel), there has been much talk about how the ladies do not get along. My guess is that producers of the show hoped the tension between the two would make for good TV … and they were right. Honestly, as a skeptic, I’m very suspicious when news of in-fighting emerges from these kinds of reality TV shows but this video seems genuine to me. Check it out, watch Nicki and Mariah go at it in the video above and see what you think. Click below to read more about what exactly went down during this heated exchange. More »
"I know he's a big fan of mine"
Earlier this month we saw video of Elton John viciously and disgustingly attacking Madonna in an interview with Molly Meldrum on Australian TV. It would seem that Madonna isn’t one to hold a grudge because she graciously dedicated a performance of her Golden Globe-winning song Masterpiece to “Mr. Elton John” during her concert stop in Nice, France. Maddy told the crowd that she “forgives” Elton, tho, she doesn’t say what she forgives him for. It’s *possible* her dedication is a bit of a dig at him because she tells the crowd Masterpiece is for him because she knows “he’s a big fan of [the song]” and is a “big fan of [her]“. MMM HMMM. Whatever the case may be, whatever Madonna‘s intentions may be, it is my personal belief that THIS is the way you handle yourself in public when you are engaged in a pointless feud with someone else. Madonna shows what it takes to be the bigger person and, as a result, further illustrates what a small, small person Elton John really is.

"I am mad that he isn’t giving me proper recognition"
Yesterday we learned that US Olympic Swimmer Ryan Lochte is planning to trademark the word Jeah so that he can profit from his favorite catchphrase. But today we learn that there is another person who is laying claim to the word and appears ready to fight for its control. Aaron Tyler, better known as MC Eiht, claims that he is the originator of the word Jeah and is planning to send a cease and desist letter to Lochte to force him to stop using his word. Uh Oh! Read on to see what MC Eiht has to say about this battle for the word Jeah. More »
"You could never invalidate the power of 'Born This Way'"
Early last week we got to hear audio of Madonna seemingly mocking Lady Gaga‘s song Born This Way in the wake of allegations that Gaga‘s song is a rip-off of Madonna‘s song Express Yourself. Today we get to hear from Gaga herself in a seeming response to that mockery. During a long and rambling performance of the song Hair while out on tour in New Zealand this week, Gaga made reference to other people who like to “make a mockery” of other people’s work. It’s unclear if she was speaking specifically about Madonna but it seems likely. Click below to watch video of Gaga‘s 11+ minute performance/speech and see what you think of her comments. More »

Mini Carrie in the City
Last week we saw photos from the NYC set of the new CW prequel series The Carrie Diaries and today we get to see a bunch of newer, fun photos. Principle filming has already begun on the series, which stars AnnaSophia Robb as the teenage Carrie Bradshaw, but it looks like they’ve started filming promo materials as well. It’s unclear what scene was being filmed this week exactly but it appears that Robb was filming the opening sequence for the show.

'Time to Dance' or Time to Kill?
Jake Gyllenhaal hasn’t flexed his acting prowess since the April 2011 release of the film Source Code but today we learn that he is the featured star of a new music video. Jake plays a creepy serial killer in the music video Time to Dance by the French electroband The Shoes. I have to say, this role is quite a departure for our dear Jakey poo. He’s not the loveable kind of guy we are used to seeing. The vid runs for over 8 minutes so it’s kind of a mini-movie. Truth be told, it’s one of Jake‘s more compelling acting performances. Check out the video for Time to Dance below and see what you think. More »
Plus, Morrissey Has Harsh Words for The Young Prince
Yesterday we saw photos of Prince Harry running then playing beach volleyball in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and today we learn that he is still in Brazil as ambassador of the British royal family. This time, we get to see photos of Harry playing polo with some Brazilian locals … and it looks like everyone had a lot of fun. BUT, British singer Morrissey (who is on tour in South America right now) has a few harsh words for Prince Harry. Speaking to his audience in Argentina this weekend, Moz unleashed a rant against the British royal family. Yikes. Check out the photos and read the comments below. More »

"[Love] basically exists now on...Xanax, Adderall, Sonata and Abilify, sugar and cigarettes."
Remember back in December of 2009 when Courtney Love lost physical parental custody of her daughter Frances Bean Cobain and it was later reported that Frances testified in family court to live with her paternal grandmother rather than her own mother? Well, testimony from that family court hearing has made its way to the Internets this week and unsurprisingly, it paints a very negative portrait of C. Love as a mother. Frances gave very sad testimony in open court about how horrible a mother Courtney was to her and as a result, was able to not only live with her grandmother but was also able to get a restraining order against Courtney. Ugh. Read on for all the sad and gruesome details of Frances‘s testimony against her mother. More »
