Mariah was filming a video for the Young Jeezy remix of her single #Beautiful at a pizza place in downtown Manhattan. Her husband Nick Cannon was directing it and decided to do this last minute nightclub scene.
Mariah was strutting her stuff in high heels, lost her footing and toppled over. She dislocated her shoulder in the process.
She was rushed to the emergency room, where the doctors helped reset her shoulder. According to her rep, she’s now recovering at home and still planning to perform at the Hurricane Sandy Relief concert in Central Park this Saturday. Her new album is set to be released this summer.
Another artist that’s not doing so well right now is Randy Travis. He was taken to the hospital on Sunday after suffering from “acquired viral cardiomyopathy”, which is a viral infection of the heart. He was in critical condition and just underwent heart surgery.
Now they are seeing the error of their ways and might be giving Jennifer Lopez the fat paycheck that she was asking for all along. She was making $15mil and asked to be bumped up to $17 million. They rejected that but then turned around and paid Mariah $18mil. I guess they thought that she would be a bigger deal than J.Lo but she ended up being just an overpaid diva that bickered with Nicki.
Idol thought about doing a big switch up mid-season. They considered trading out Mariah for J.Lo but had to halt those plans once Mariah heard the rumors and threatened to sue.
Well maybe they are going back to the original plan of bringing back J.Lo to save the show. She had a top secret meeting with Ryan Seacrest on Friday. They met up at an office building in Beverly Hills and didn’t seem too happy that they were spotted together.
Everyone is assuming that they were discussing her return to American Idol.
Now there are also rumors that they are thinking about bringing back former contestants. Carrie Underwood admitted that she was never invited to be a judge (Whaaatttt? She would have been my first call! Maybe that’s why Nigel was canned) but it’s rumored that Jennifer Hudson is on the verge of signing her Idol deal.
Would you watch Idol if Jennifer Lopez returned? What if they brought on the double Jen duo, Lopez and Hudson?
Channing Tatum gave an adorably cute interview with Cosmo magazine, where he admitted the thing that keeps him so grounded is his funny friends.
He said, “[My friends] keep me grounded. It’s embarrassing to tell you how much my friends make fun of me. Seriously, when you have a doll made of your face, it’s ridiculous how creative your friends can get. Pictures, videos, little animated cartoons that they’ve made. And they’re way, way not PG-13. So I get chopped down to size all the time.”
He also said that if it wasn’t for his demanding movie roles, he’d be fat man with pizza drool running down his chin.
*Side note- I would still lick the pizza drool off of a fat Channing Tatum.
Channing said, “I’m a fat kid on the inside. I love food so much, and I fluctuate about 25 to 30 pounds between movies. I feel like I have to do a chess movie that requires very little movement at some point, just so I can eat pizza and play chess on the beach all day. And then eat more pizza and cheeseburgers and drink beer. That’d be amazing. I’d give anything for that. I gotta figure that movie out.”
He also said that he’d love to be the male Jennifer Lawrence because he thinks she is “incredibly cool”.
I think Channing Tatum is incredibly cool. And super duper sexy. But my favorite thing about him is his laid back attitude. It’s so hot to know that he’s a chill dude and not a Mariah Carey diva. And that he would order junk food at a restaurant and not make you feel obligated to order a raw salad with a side of water.
Almost everybody has “quit” American Idol… but there is one lone survivor as of now.
Ok we know that they were all given the boot due to record low ratings but let’s just go with what they are saying.. They all quit.
Randy Jackson was the first one to politely quit the Idol gig after 12 seasons.
Then yesterday, the diva Mariah Carey retweeted a statement from her publicist, saying that she would not be returning for another season. I think she wanted to give the announcement before Fox could.. No one fires the diva!
The tweet said, “W/ global success of “#Beautiful” (#1 in 30+ countries so far) @MariahCarey confirms world tour & says goodbye 2 Idol.”
Fox later released a gushing statement, praising her for her wisdom and experience and said that she will always remain an “inspiration to Idol hopefuls for many seasons to come.”
Next up to quit the show was Nicki Minaj. She tweeted, “Thank you American Idol for a life changing experience! Wouldn’t trade it for the world! Time to focus on the Music!!! Mmmuuuaahhh!!!”
Fox then thanked her for her “level of honesty and passion” that she brought to Idol and said that they understand her decision. They left out the “thank you for not killing Mariah Carey” part though.
So the only one who remains is Keith Urban… but he’s expected to get the Idol send off too. Rumor is they are gunning for ex Idol contestants like Jennifer Hudson, Kelly Clarkson, maybe Adam Lambert. And they would probably like to throw Jennifer Lopez somewhere in the mix if they could afford her.
It was announced last week that Randy Jackson is quitting Idol after 12 years but likely, they were just in a good position to fire him this year. They tried to get rid of the dawg last year but he managed to squeeze another season and paycheck out of them, likely because he helped get Mariah Carey on board.. He’s been Mariah’s manager since the beginning and she’s probably the reason he was still here for this season. But it’s rumored that she fired him as her manager as well. Randy’s just getting the pink slip from everybody!
But it’s not only Randy who’s getting the Idol boot.. Everyone else is getting axed too.
Due to the exceptionally low ratings, Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey and Keith Urban will all be out with Randy at the end of this season. The official announcement will be made soon.
