Welp, I guess it was only a matter of time. Mariah Carey and her BFF collaborator Jermaine Dupri have decided to end their artist/manager relationship. Basically, she fired him because his work as executive producer of her new album I Am Mariah … The Elusive Chanteuse was a huge failure. Despite the fact that Dupri talked up the album as much as possible in the press, the album has sold poorly since its release in May and has fallen completely off the Billboard magazine Top 200 album chart. Jermaine says that he and Mimi will work together again in the future, which is very possible. Mimi, for her part, has already set her sights on a new managerial team moving forward. More »
Over the weekend, Beyoncé and Jay Z thrilled the folks here in Southern California with a pair of concert performances at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA. Many people, me included, had the best time ever at these shows. BUT … not everyone had a good time … the LA Times is reporting that an altercation broke out between 3 people during Saturday night’s concert which resulted in one man biting off the tip of another man’s finger. I mean, the tip counts. Read on for deets about this bizarre story. More »
She's tired of the hateration
You know what? It’s hard to have haters, and sometimes it gets to be too much. Megan Fox is, apparently, through with her haters. There’s much anticipation surrounding the release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and with just a few days before the big day (August 8) Megan decided she needed to keep it trill at a press conference. You may not like what she had to say, but she definitely said it! Click inside for more!
WITH the release date of September 11
The Michael Bay reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will open in theaters here in the US next month but the film will open internationally in Australia on September 11. A genius in the promo department for TMNT thought it would be a great idea to work up poster artwork for the film that features the turtles jumping from an exploding building with the release date of September 11 listed at the bottom. Obviously, this decision has upset quite a few people who remember still the horror that took place in NYC 13 years ago this September 11. More »
'The Last Leg'
SO, the season 6 finale episode of The Real Housewives of New York City aired last night and even if you don’t watch the show or never plan to watch the show, there is a moment that you MUST see just so that you can live a full and complete life. When this 6th season premiered all those months ago, a preview video was released that showed castmember Aviva Drescher‘s prosthetic lying on the floor … and it took until the last moments of the final ep of the season to see how her leg ended up on the floor. I’m not even going to get into the dramatic events that led up to the moment that Aviva pulled off her prosthetic leg and threw it at her detractors … all you need to know is that she was trying to make a point and she did so by throwing her leg onto the floor. You can click thru the gallery to see screencaps of this amazing moment in reality TV OR, even better, you can click below to watch video of this insanity. Yes, I understand that Aviva throwing her leg onto the floor marks a new low point in Western Civilization but I just can’t stop watching this scene over and over again! More »
That Ish Cray Of-The-Day
Hilarious news to wake up to this morning. Apparently. Some people reeeealllly aren’t feeling today’s biggest pop stars, and they’ve decided to make that crystal clear to the rest of the world. The minor league baseball team Charleston Riverdogs hosted a very special event the other day, in which they lit’rally burned Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber music to the ground. I don’t know about you, but I find this to be incredibly funny. Click inside for more!
So … Robin Thicke released his new album Paula both here in the US and internationally in the UK and after the first week sales have been tallied, the news isn’t really great for poor Robin. In the UK, he only sold 530 copies of his new album in the entire first week of availability. Yeesh. Here in the US, he sold a few more albums. In it’s first week of sales here in the US, Thicke sold about 25,000 copies of Paula … which pales in comparison to the first week sales of his last album Blurred Lines (177,000). It doesn’t sound like people are all that interested in hearing Robin sing/stalk his estranged wife Paula Patton, does it? More »

The former 'Scandal' star was in [another] bar fight
Oh, Columbus. Can you please stop getting into drunken bar fights? Pleeease? The former Scandal Gladiator is really on his trainwreck ish right now. Right around the time the actor was getting into it with his wife (who has filed for divorce), and getting into it with various other folks, he lost his job on Scandal. It sucks to hear that he’s still getting drunk, and getting into fights all over the place. And, the more I think about it, it sucks that we’re not going to see Harrison ever again (hence, my nostalgic choice of photo)! Click inside for more.
