Nicole-Kidman

Via Extra:

“Extra’s” Charissa Thompson caught up with actress Nicole Kidman to talk about her new film “Before I Go To Sleep” yesterday, where Nicole opened up about the rumors she and husband Keith Urban are trying to have another child and much more.

On whether she always dreamed of being an actress, Nicole revealed, “No, I wanted to be a lawyer. I wanted to be a doctor… I come from an academic family so I think that was held in much higher regard…and I was the black sheep of the family.”

As for the recent rumors that she and husband Keith Urban are trying to have another child, Nicole said, “I would be blessed to have more children…If we ever had the chance to have another child, Keith and I would be through the roof.”

And what is the mother of four’s top secret to looking young and beautiful? Nicole explained, “If you have someone to love and someone to love you. I think that’s the greatest beauty secret.”

“Before I Go To Sleep” opens in theaters nationwide on Friday, October 31st.

Harry Connick, Jr. Joins American Idol

10991291-borgata-shows-acAnd now we all can get on with our lives!

After an exhaustive search that mentioned nearly every singer known to the world over the past months, the producers of American Idol have finally harassed someone into signing on the dotted line. Let’s just thank our lucky stars it’s not Nicki Minaj!

News reports are confirming that singer/actor Harry Connick, Jr. is coming tot he table and he will be sharing it with Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez for the 13th season of the show. Connick already has experience on the show, serving as a mentor and guest judge in season 12. The producers have been after Connick for some time and we are guessing the money finally made him put his Hancock on the contract.

So will there be a fourth judge this year, or is that J.Lo’s ass?

Randy Jackson Will Not Be Denied!

No matter what American Idol seems to do, they just cannot seem to get rid of Randy Jackson! When they tried to get rid of him last year, he took them off his trail by promising Mariah Carey. Well, now that she’s gone, the rumors were that he was completely gone from the show as well.
Think again!

Reports are running fast and furious that Randy will replace mentor Jimmy Iovine for the next season since Iovine is allegedly bowing out. Randy certainly has enough experience as a producer and mentor. The question is if audiences still want to see him screaming at them ‘daaawg’ for another six months or longer?

Also?

Wo will the judges be this year? How many judges will there be this year? So far, all we know is that Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez are returning.

Mariah Carey To American Idol: I’ll Sue a B*tch!

Jennifer-Mariah

The ratings on American Idol have plummeted so hard that the producers reportedly considered ditching Mariah Carey and bringing back former judge Jennifer Lopez. And what did Carey have to say about all of this when it floated from their lips and underneath her weave and into her luscious lobes?

Hell to the no!

Carey had a few choice words for that proposal of her own. As in allegedly threatening to sue them for every cent they’ve ever made on the decade old show. The producers, who already are not the best of friends with Carey since slipping in Nicki Minaj at the last minute, now claim the talk is just that and there were never any plans to bring Lopez back.

If the producers want ratings to increase, they should probably get rid of Keith Urban and leave the judges at three. Minaj may be crazy, but she gives good drama against Mariah and they need more of that! Allegedly, the rumors surfaced once news spread that Lopez was performing on the season finale. Since Lopez and Carey allegedly hate one another, maybe we’ll see a verbal slap or two on this night?

Stay tuned. Or like most people this season…don’t!

Nicki Minaj vs. Mariah Carey: Round #37

It’s probably been more rounds than that, but I’m erring on the side of conservatism.

And why is Nicki Minaj even ON ‘American Idol’ anyway? The judges are supposed to be musical heavyweights with countless years and hits on their resumes. I would list here Mariah’s hits against Nicki Minaj’s, but my editor likes me to keep these posts under a certain amount of words for all you sufferers of attention deficit disorder.

Where was I?

Oh!

So down south in Charlotte, North Carolina, the showdown that everyone has been waiting for went off. But before the verbal slaps could get too heated, what did the producer of ‘American Idol’ do?

He came in to referee and dashed all our hopes of weaves flying, cotton candy hair spraying across the room, and Keith Urban running for Nicole!

“That’s a wrap for today!”, Nigel Lythgoe proclaimed just before the proverbial sh*t hit the fan.

I’ve said it before and I will say it again. Mariah may look nice and sweet, but a girl from Long Island isn’t going to let some Power Puff reject come at her too many times.

You better watch your back, Nicki. Mariah’s got about 6 inches and 2 layers of weave, and a yo-yo dieting big black man on her side waiting on you!idol18f-2-web

Miranda Kerr Wows, John Travolta Joins Keith Urban on Stage “Yesterday”

John Travolta

At a private, pre-Globes cocktail party last night in Los Angeles John Travolta joined Keith Urban on stage for an impromptu duet of the Beatles “Yesterday.”

The event, the Spirit of Australia, welcomed Hollywood’s Australian darlings including Miranda Kerr, Liam Hemsworth, Dean Geyer and more.

Keith Urban

The event was also the first official debut of Swisse Wellness in the United States. Swisse, Australia’s #1 Multivitamin brand, will be available in Walgreens starting February 1st.

Nicole Kidman is Swisse’s Global Ambassador and will be making announcement of their official launch today in a huge way.

Miranda Kerr

Miranda Kerr, Liam Hemsworth

Doesn’t Miranda look absolutely amazing…definitely one of the most beautiful women in the world. LOVE her!

And now for your viewing pleasure…John Travolta getting it in with the talented Keith Urban.

Keith Urban Brings The Moisture

As in the heat. As in moisture. As in a burst of juice in your loins, and extra panty pudding paste!

Yes, ladies (and selected gentlemen), Keith Urban is showing off his wares once and for all in France and although Speedos are a no-no in America, I don’t think anyone is going to be complaining about these photos. Congratulations to Nicole Kidman for finally landing a man above three apples high and with an obvious bulge in his nether-region.

Tom Cruise is surely jealous!

As his wife wraps up filming of her soon to be released movie, Grace of Monaco, Urban sunned away at his hotel. Keith Urban is also celebrating his 45th birthday and although not in his birthday suit, this will suffice.

If only more men wore Speedos, women would know what they were getting. There’s definitely a slight bulge there, so maybe Sunday Rose really is his child and not by some surrogate after all.

Urban begins his first season of American Idol with Tricki Fromaj and Mariah Carey on January 16th.

Minajarey: Round 2!

The scandal that I have dubbed Minajarey heats up, folks. Are we ready for round two in this caged match? I sure am!

What do you do when the reigning queen of hip hop threatens your life? If you’re Mariah Carey, you’ve been in the game long enough to know how to play it and play it well. You make your hair bigger, your dresses tighter, and your quotes more salacious. Then you call in the big guns…

Barbara Walters!

On The View today, Barbara Walters reported that she reached out and spoke to Carey, who claims “Nicki walked off the set and multiple people heard Nicki say, ‘If I had a gun I would shoot the bitch.”

Once you’ve cleared the air through America’s most beloved journalist, what do you do next?

Hire extra security. It is being reported that after threats were made on her life, Mimi beefed up her security. Nicki Minaj, for her part, has retaliated via Twitter.

“I don’t call tmz n Barbara Walters cuz I stand on my own two feet.  Never needed an army. God is good.  Insecurity is as cruel as the grave. I guess it hurts 2 have the producers tell u to ur face that nicki is the best judge we’ve had since simon. Awww, poor u. Keep them lies cmn.”

And what did Keith Urban have to say about this celebrity battle royale?

“I love it, I gotta say. I love working with crazy, deranged passionate people. I love artists. Everyone just sort of expressing themselves. It’s a very alive and very invigorating work environment.”

Let’s see how invigorated Urban is the next time these two go at it. My bet is on him running off the set before one of them snatches his extensions out of his scalp!

Nicki Minaj Coming To E!

Just when I was thinking to myself that E! had more than enough big asses on their payroll in the Kardashians, now comes word that another fat ass is dragging her bum to the network.

Fresh from her recent signing to American Idol as one of three new judges (including Mariah Carey, Keith Urban, and Randy Jackson), the hip-pop star has inked a deal that will have her and her Rainbow Brite inspired hair featured in a series of specials for the network. The three shows are set to begin airing this fall and are meant to shed further insight into the inner workings of all things Minaj.

The good news out of all this for me is that it will not be a reality show that we are forced to see every day, five times a day. No one needs mass quantities of this! I think I speak for about 90% of the world’s population when I say that there’s enough ass on the E! network already. Any additional assault on our senses should be classified as abuse of some kind. I mean seriously…

is there a hotline for this bombardment of hot ass mess?!

Randy Jackson Is Still A Judge

That is, if Simon Cowell is to be believed. The former judge on American Idol tweeted yesterday to his nearly 4 million followers the news.
“Just heard Randy is back on Idol,” Cowell tweeted to his 3.6 million followers. “Right decision.”

This news can be viewed at many different angles. It could mean that the producers of American Idol cannot afford all of the contenders for next season’s judges. Between Enrique Iglesias, Keith Urban, and Nicki Minaj, the salaries for all of them combined would hover around $15 million dollars. That is a considerable sum yes, but that does not even include the salary of Mariah Carey, who is expected to make about $18 million dollars, and is currently the only judge signed so far.

Perhaps Carey threw around her considerable weight (pun not intended) to get Jackson back in a judging chair? The two are very close friends and Jackson is also one of Mariah’s music producers for many years. One thing for certain is that having Randy Jackson back will free up millions of dollars for whomever else they do sign. If they retain a three judge format, then Keith Urban and Enrique (possibly Adam Lambert) have a shot and that leaves Nicki Minaj the tranny man out. If they decide to revert back to a four person judging table, then Minaj is back on as a potential judge and Mimi may have a coronary. The producers at American Idol have less than two weeks to get this table going full steam ahead.
Stay tuned!

Enrique Iglesias to the American Idol Chair?

It looks like things on American Idol could be getting an injection of latin male this season if reports hold up. Sources are now saying that Latin pop singer Enrique Iglesias is definitely in the running for one of the three remaining seats on the judging table for American Idol.

Currently, only Mariah Carey has been inked (at $18 million a year) to judge this season, with Nicki Minaj, Keith Urban, Kanye West, and Adam Lambert still allegedly in the running. Randy Jackson is not returning to the table, but stepping aside to remain on the show as a mentor for the talent.
Having four judges would place American Idol under similar formats to The Voice and to America’s Got Talent, each of which has four judges.  Enrique Iglesias has also received a montary offer, valued at around $4 million a year, which is similar to the offer that Keith Urban is allegedly receiving. Of course, no one from American Idol will comment on any of this, so I guess the entire world will have to see how negotiations during the next two weeks unfold with these pop stars.

I’m fine with only Mimi as a judge. God knows she has enough multiple personalities to count as more than one judge!
