mariah-perfume

Mariah had hinted to her lambs that she had been busy working on a special project (outside of American Idol and the final production on her upcoming album) and now we finally know what it is girlfriend was up to.

No, not baby making…but a different kind of baby. A new scent, dahlingssssssss. I introduce to you Dreams, Mimi’s new fragrance brought to you by Elizabeth Arden.

The scent is said to be “a new fragrance laced with salted caramel apple and Madagascar vanilla notes.”

It will definitely appeal to those peeps looking for a new Spring/Summer smell that celebrates the many stages of life. The bottle was designed to celebrate life and reaching for and celebrating your dreams. Hence the curves of a champagne flute and the festive butterflies.

This will definitely be one fragrance I am about to try. Dreams will be available exclusively at Kohls. This brings Mariah’s perfume tally up to a whopping TWELVE! Make that money girl!

Nicki Minaj vs. Mariah Carey: Round 72

Nicki-Mariah-Face-Off-01

Nicki Minaj must have a secret crush on Mimi or something. Why else is she always bringing her name up in the most evil of ways for no reason? We all know you hate her. We got that 15,000 months ago. We’re over it. So until you dare slap Mariah, there’s really nothing new going on here. But oh the things one must do when the realization hits that 5 years from now, people will remember the weaves, Rainbow Brite attire, but the name?

Tricki WHO?

So this is why Nicki is using her dislike for all things Carey to get some press and some extra checks. When asked recently about collaborating with the pop queen in the future, Nicki was blunt… “I don’t know. God bless her though…I mean, that’ll never happen.” In other words, if the right check comes along, she’ll change her tune quicker than you can say ‘Vision of Love’.

Mariah Carey Releases Snippet of Almost Home Music Video

mariahcarey2

She recently released her latest single (and yes, I am soooo happy to say that) and now Mariah Carey has given us a sneak peek of the music video for “Almost Home”, the song released from the soundtrack for Disney’s Oz the Great and Powerful.

In the clip, the legendary diva is wearing a black gown which cuts to various scenes from the movie. The music video was directed by David LaChapelle.

Just so you know, you can now download the song ‘Almost Home’ now! So yeah, feel free to do that.

According to IMDB, the movie Oz the Great and Powerful is a prequel to the story of The Wizard of Oz, the movie is about magician Oscar Diggs (James Franco) who ends up in Oz and meets three witches (Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz), who all believe he is the wizard of their dreams.

Check out a sneak peek of Mariah Carey’s Almost Home music video below.

ERMERGERD: Mariah Carey Almost Home FULL AUDIO

mariah-carey

It is here, as I promised…the FULL AUDIO of Mariah Carey’s Almost Home single that is set to be included on the Oz: The Great and Powerful movie soundtrack put out by Disney. And yes, Disney PUTS OUT, baby! Now the beats are kind of corny at first because I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but after awhile they grow on you and trust, all you can do is tone out that cheesy shiz and listen to those vocals. Oh, my gawd.

MC BRINGS it like a boss!

Mariah Reveals Artwork For New Single!

mariah-carey

My girl MC just recently released the cover art for her new single “Almost Home” that is set to feature on the Disney’s Oz the Great and Powerful soundtrack.

Today Mariah took to her Twitter to share the news saying, “Here is the cover art for my new single “Almost Home” (out Feb. 19) from Disney’s “Oz The Great and Powerful”.”

Lucky for us MC lambs, we’ll get to hear the song on Tuesday February 19th. Yes, THAT soon to hear something new from legendary diva.

The film Oz the Great and Powerful stars James Franco, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz, and is set to hit cinemas on March 8.

Written as a prequel to the story of The Wizard of Oz, this flick is about magician Oscar Diggs (Franco) who ends up in Oz and meets three witches (Kunis, Williams and Weisz), each believing him to be the wizard of their dreams.

Not gonna lie but with Mariah being a part of this, it just makes the whole concept THAT much better.

Stay tuned dahlings for the song once we get our paws on it!

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

Mariah Carey Teams Up with Jimmy Fallon and the Roots For All I Want For Christmas

Jimmy, Mariah Carey, and The Roots grabbed some instruments and stopped by the Late Night “Music Room” to sing Mariah’s holiday classic, “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” Download Mariah’s”Merry Christmas II You” here.

This is so damn amazing that I’m not even going to attempt to describe it. Instead, check it out for yourself!

Nicki Minaj vs. Mariah Carey: Round 17

Nicki Minaj has been hot for about two minutes, and is being disrespectful for the umpteenth. Nicki is going out of her 17 asses yet again, and this time I just can’t with this trick!

In the tale of the tape, Mariah Carey has released about three times as many albums as Nicki, sold hundreds upon millions of more CDs, collaborated with anyone that is anyone in the record industry, and is considered one of the perennial singers in the world. Yet here we are in 2012, where mediocrity reigns supreme and she is forced to shill on television week after week for a check along the likes of Rainbow Brite stunt doubles. Nicki has re-re-re-released her album Pink Friday again, and she has this to say about Mimi in one of the songs. The lyrics go…

“But you’re boring as f–k, though./Why these bitches in the game so cutthroat?/Why they can’t just let young Nicki live?/Why they gotta feel the wrath to know Nicki is?”

My hope is that Mariah shows her how boring she is when she kicks her in the throat on live TV.

Stay tuned.

Nicki Minaj: Command-Ho?

Just when I was ready to stop talking about Tricki Fromaj, she demands our attention yet again with her petty verbal spitting about all things her and all things Mariah Carey. And far be it from me to deny this poptrick at least a few words of my time. Now she says that there is no bad blood between her and Carey and that a duet may be in their future.

Well, color me colored. Color me shocked. Color me not buying it! Here’s what she had to say on her E! special. You know, because E! is home to all the most important news in the world.
*eyeroll*

“I would do that,” Minaj  “I think people would be interested in seeing that.”
The cameras are following her for her upcoming album reissue of Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded: The Re-Up. Now, forgive me if I am wrong, but…hasn’t this album been re-released twice already? How many more times can we hear ‘Starships’ without throwing something at our television or DJ? I mean, seriously. Her music makes me want to slap MTV programmers with a borrowed Louboutin. And now she has her eyes set on the big screen. As if her head could fit on a screen that large.

She’s also ready for some acting. “I want to do something like a small action movie,” she said.

Dear Nicky, Pam Grier you are not!! I suspect an open letter from me is coming your way!
Stay tuned!

American Idol Promo: Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj BFF’s?

It seems as if Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj have mended fences (or they were photoshopped in), at least for this new American Idol promo photo. Granted the ladies aren’t standing by each other with their arms around each other, but hey…they are cheesin’. And either their explosion on the Idol set was staged or they are grown women moving on like mature individuals. No need for a hostile work environment!

It will be interesting to see all this unfold on the boob tube. You KNOW Idol is looking forward to showing us this! And I’m not gonna lie, I’m looking forward to Nicki losing her damn marbles and MC dusting off of her shoulder.

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 Calls Mariah A B**CH!

As a professional journalist (eye roll), I tried to be level headed and open minded when I first heard about the Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey American Idol feud. But let me tell you, after hearing what Nicki actually said to MC (an icon she should not be disrespecting and talking down to) I can no longer bite my tongue.

For those of you who are in the dark about this, during the American Idol auditions, MC and Nicki disagreed on something and Nicki basically went all ghetto on MC and there is video to prove it. While the audio could be inaudible for some, here is the convo in text.

Nicki: “And if you’ve got a ****ing problem, handle it. I told them I’m not ****ing putting up with your ****ing highness over there.”

Mariah “Oh Why, why, why do I have a three year old sitting around me?”

Nicki: “I’m not sitting here for 20 million having her look down here repremanded everyday. No.”

Mariah: “I can’t see my kids because you decided to act like a little crazy bitch and go all around the stage.”

Nicki: “Go see them now, go. You’re boring as ****.”

Even though Nicki claims that Mariah was the one who started this whole damn thing, in the video, it sure appeared as if Mariah was the one keeping her cool.

According to a source close to Nicki, the “Pound the Alarm” singer is sick of MC praising herself instead of the contestants. “She keeps bringing up how many records she’s sold, name dropping people she’s worked with, how many tours she’s done, and how many Grammys or awards she’s won … Nicki is tired of it.”

She’s tired of it because it’s the got damn truth and nobody is or will be even close to the legendary status that Mariah is at currently…and she’s not even done doing the damn thing!

Check out the big fat rumble here.

Nicki and Mariah Battle

I knew it would not be long before the claws came out between these two and sure enough, the new female judges on American Idol are not going to be sharing weaves or glitter any time soon.

I dub this battle…

Minajarey!

Speculation has been building for nearly a month now over whether or not Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj got along. Mariah was signed first and allegedly demanded to be the only diva female judge on the panel. Well, the producers of American Idol basically told Mimi to shut her hole and wooed hip-pop singer Nicki Minaj to add to the panel of Keith Urban and Randy Jackson. The two have been repeatedly asked if there is any truth to the rumors that they can’t stand one another. Both refuted the claims, but the video footage does not lie. If Simon Cowell thought he was bringing the crazy by signing Britney Spears, he might be re-thinking his decision to not pursue Mariah and Nicki Minaj more aggressively.

On the set at auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina, Nicki had a few choice words for Mariah.

“I’m gonna knock you out! I told them, I’m not f*ckin’ putting up with her f*ckin’ highness over there.”

As this all played out, Keith Urban sat between them wondering which exit was closest to escape to, and Randy Jackson wondering how quickly he could get out of his chair and stop Mimi from jumping up and slapping Nicki with a Hello Kitty accessory. Producers immediately wrapped taping for the day, allowing the two to retreat back to their respective trailers and cool off.

I love it! The last time I watched American Idol, Clay Aiken was still in the closet, Fantasia still wasn’t a homewrecker yet, and Jennifer Hudson was fat. It looks like I’m gonna have to make a return to this visual/aural herpes, because nothing would make my black heart beat faster than seeing a live show where these two threw down. If it did go down?

My money’s on Mimi!

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?!

Lady Gaga Acknowledges Her Growing Lady Parts

It’s hard being a pop trick these days. Before AudioTune, it didn’t matter what you looked like, so long as you could sang. Gone is that era! These days, with the right plastic surgeon, momager-slash-pimp, and leaked sex tape…all the ingredients are sitting right in front of your face for stardom. So there is no reason for today’s pop stars to have extra body fat/chins/asses.

Airbrush that outta yo’ life!

Which means that if Lady Gaga chunks up, it’s going to be noticed. How a pop stars gets their thickness to work for them is the true test of divadom. Just ask Mariah Carey. Gaga had this to say about the latest additions to the Monster Ball tour…

ass.

“I’m dieting right now, because I gained, like, 25 pounds since I started smoking all this weed on tour and getting the munchies. And you know I really don’t feel bad about it, not even for a second because I cannot even remember with my short term memory loss compromised. I have to be on such a strict diet constantly. It’s hard because it’s a quite vigorous show, so I tend to chunk bulk up, get bloated muscular, and I really don’t like that. So I’m trying to find a new balance speed.”

That’s right, Gaga. You need to find just the right balance between the expanding of your ass and a paycheck. There’s a difference between shilling for Weight Watchers…and shilling for gastric bypass surgery.

Lady Gaga, you are no Jessica Simpson. So it’s not like you can pork up and release a clothing line of clothes you wear day to day. In most countries, people eat their meat…not wear it.
