American Idol is missing that wow factor that they hoped to get this season after a major judging overhaul.
They brought in Mariah Carey for the big bucks but she’s just not delivering. The only thing that she’s brought to the Idol panel is some bickering with Nicki Minaj but even their cat fights aren’t entertaining.
Well the Idol execs realized that they made a mistake and wanted to switch her out for a former judge mid-season.
They see the error of their ways and they want Jennifer Lopez back! She was popular on the show and would be the big draw that they need to save the show!
But Mariah caught wind of this plan and threatened to sue if she was replaced so they are stuck with her… just like Nick Cannon.
Sources say that they are still negotiating to get J.Lo to appear on the season finale. And it’s rumored that the whole judging panel could be replaced next season.
Sucks too because I really enjoyed not watching Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban on my least favorite singing competition show that I don’t watch.
Hold up! Nick Cannon and Kim Kardashian dated?? We vaguely recall such a thing. It took place back in 2006..before we were sold the idea that Keeping up with the Kardashians was something anyone actually wanted.
Nick and Kim’s romance was also not that memorable because it didn’t last long—four months—just long enough for Kim to get caught in one BIG lie…
Nick and Kim’s relationship came to a screeching stop when he asked her about some sort of ‘sex tape’ he was hearing about. She denied it’s very existence. Tape? What tape?
Nick recently said, “If she had been honest, then I might’ve kept her because she is a great girl but the fact that she lied….no way!”
Interestingly, when Kim was asked back in 2007 about Nick’s reaction to the sex tape scandal, she claimed it had nothing to do with it…and that they were ‘just friends.’
From Kim’s interview with Joe La Puma:
Q: You were linked to Nick Cannon around the time our issue came out. Did that kind of cool down? What’s the status of your relationship with him?
A: We were never really…we were always friends. He was someone who I enjoyed spending my time with, but we were never really a couple. And I think it fizzled out way before that even happened.
Dang! Nick really got around!
Nick: Is there anything else you need to get off your chest this holiday season?
*Warning: This story is not for the faint of heart or children.
We found out who’s really buying all those Mariah Carey greatest hits albums—her husband Nick Cannon. This morning on Howard Stern, Nick confessed to playing Mariah’s music when she’s away…to well…ya’ know…have his way with himself. He especially enjoys “Hero.”
But, that was just a side note, Nick’s real reveal was sharing that the power couple listens to Mariah’s music while they do the deed—together too.
Does Mariah allow any other music? What about Nick’s?
Nick didn’t want his wifey to work for a direct competitor to his show, America’s Got Talent. Sources say that he begged Mariah to pass on the offer. He offered her diamonds, a spa vacay, even a one-time gift of $15mil to turn Idol down. But she took the gig anyway despite his pleas and now their marriage is in jeopardy because of the job that she hasn’t even started yet! Sources are saying that he wants her to be a stay at home mommy but she still has stars in her eyes..
Still no word on who’s joining Mariah on the judging panel but Snoop Dogg Lion says that he would love to be on Idol.
And Khloe Kardashian wants to take a stab at a different kind of reality show. She is being considered to be one of the hosts for X-Factor and she really wants the job. She told E! news, “I’m a big fan of The X Factor. I’ve always wanted to do hosting or talk show hosting, so it’s definitely something that I would love to do and would be honored to do. To be on such a huge show like that with those judges, I would have so much fun doing that.”
At Russell Simmons‘ Art For Life benefit in the Hamptons this weekend, Mariah Carey let her inner-diva out to play!
She reportedly, had a long list of requests, which Russell surely knew—HE BETTER HONOR—or Mariah would NOT be helping ANYONE raise ANY money for ANY cause.
Mariah’s top concern seemed to be that ALL cameras be SHUT OFF while she was on stage! Get this, the reason being: she didn’t like the way her make up looked.
Ha! Hold on to your seats folks, because we’re in for a lonnnnng bumpy ride on this season’s American Idol.
Reps for the event felt the opposite, saying “Mariah looked stunning.”
We can see that for ourselves here in the picture. It also appears that her smiling hubby, Nick Cannon, has dealt with Mariah and her alleged “bad hair and/or bad make-ups days” many times before.
We’re glad to see that Nick keeps a sense of humor about it all!
Mariah’s other Diva Demands included:
- That no one but Russell Simmons could be on stage when she went on.
- She had to come in through the kitchen, which needed to be cleared. She didn’t want to see anyone, or be seen, before stepping foot on stage. (She wanted Soledad O’Brien and Grant Hill out of there.)
- And since she didn’t allow cameras, the big screens also had to be turned off.
By contrast, Salt n Pepa, everyone’s favorite ’90s duo, who performed at Art for Life, only asked for water backstage and brought down the house with hits like ‘Let’s Talk About S-E-X.’
In conclusion, it is UNDENIABLE that Mariah Carey will be a DIVA until the day she dies (and probably after that too). However, can we all admit that (on a MUCH smaller scale) we too can be unreasonable at certain times…of the month…and we don’t always want our picture snapped either?
