Nicki Minaj leaves American Idol set after blow out audition fight with judges, video below. It was reported back in October that there was major drama on the Idol set, yet nobody knew what caused it until tonight when she show aired. Tonight we got a feast of the big mouth who is Minaj.
The conflict began as Mariah Carey,Randy Jackson and Keith Urban questioned contestant Summer Cunningham’s interest in country music. Minaj accused the trio of “picking her apart,” while the other judges insisted they just wanted to know more in order to help. “You’re right. I can’t help her,” replied Minaj sarcastically before storming off the set, saying, ”Maybe I should just get off the f**king panel… I’m over it.”
Michael Jackson‘s brother Randy has gone crazy on Twitter, saying that not all the tracks on the upcoming Michael album are authentic, and that he’s absolutely certain there are some where the voice is someone other than Michael. Â Several experts have analyzed the audio, and have all concluded that the voice is Michael’s, but Randy says that he knows his brother’s voice, and that’s not it on the recordingâ€¦ or at least not all the time.
Randy suggested that perhaps people are just seeing an opportunity to make money off of Michael’s death, and there have been thinly veiled accusations that audio analysis experts can be paid to say whatever Michael’s people want them to say. Â Randy remarked that the new album is of mixed quality at best, and that the places where the vocals aren’t complete really show through.
Randy Jackson, brother of Michael Jackson, is furious over filming of the music superstar’s funeral from a media helicopter during the event. The Jackson family allowed a live video feed from the Glendale Forest Lawn Memorial Park as guests arrived to the funeral, but asked it to be cut off when Michael Jackson’s body arrived. However, an unauthorized media helicopter hovered over the funeral and continued to film.
Randy Jackson says the helicopter intrusion “severely disrupted” the memorial service for Michael Jackson. The singer’s brother said he was “dismayed” by the lack of respect from the helicopter filming crew and has requested the media pull any video taken by them.
“We had asked the media to respect the privacy and the sanctity of this event; to give us one moment of privacy to mourn as a family out of the public spotlight,” Randy Jackson said in a statement to the press. “Unfortunately, despite a no-fly zone around Forest Lawn, many media organizations decided to ignore our wishes.”
â€œI therefore ask today that media organizations airing helicopter footage of the ceremony we held for my brother immediately pull that footage from their air and refrain from airing it in the future.â€
Around 200 family, friends and celebrities gathered to pay their last respects to pop icon Michael Jackson at his funeral. Last week, the Los Angeles Coroner’s Office ruled Jackson’s death a homicide by drug overdose. So far, no charges have been madeagainst anyone in the investigation.
It’s Tuesday night, and American Idol has reached the stage in the show where the real competition starts. Time to do the office pool! Simon, Randy, Paula and new girl Kara D will be culling the herd…no doubt with Simon in his V-necks- moobs highlighted.
Good to see Simon really has had a lifelong relationship with the V’s. This picture is so old that Simey is rocking out a Mork meets the Bee-Gees theme, saucily. It’s undeniable, the V’s are a classic for Europeans…not that it’s an excuse for hairy men to wear them. See ya tonight, Samson Simon.
Ooooh, reports of shizz hitting the fan are circulating about American Idol’s Mr. Nasty, Simon Cowell. Personally, Snarkista hearts Simon, because he’s so dang crotchety, suffers no fools, and he isn’t tone deaf. Paula’s fun to watch because she’s a walking acid trip with occasional amnesia, narcolepsy and verbal diarrhea. Randy is a one-joke joke that we’ve heard WAY to many times, dawg. The new girl with the giant resume is the BIG unknown for the upcoming season, although Paula has surely been asking Mr. Jack Daniels for pointers on how to off the biyotch. Auditions have already begun, and the new season of Idol starts in January.
Simon is apparently making too much money. Isn’t it always about the money? In this case, Simon’s making about $42 million a year more than Paula, and about $48 million more than Randy. Paula needs to clam up, because she is NOT gonna make $8 million a year recycling “Scat Cat” crap from the ’80’s. Simon’s a co-creator of the show, he renegotiates his salary every year, his record label signs the winners. Randy has side projects, and is well-respected in the music world…even if he sounds like a freakin’ broken record on the show. Paula has…a seat at the table and an opaque Coke glass. $8 million a year is plenty to keep the glass full of Jesus Juice. Don’t rock the boat, Paula, or that new girl (Kara DioGuardi) may take you out. Seriously, have you seen the chick’s resume? It is KILLER. AND she’s hot. Better play nice.
On his radio show today, Ryan Seacrest announced that American Idol will have a fourth judge this year! The newbie is Kara DioGuardi, a singer, songwriter, producer and artist. She may be new to the Idol stage, but she’s a formidable force in the music industry. Fox says:
DioGuardi’s songs have appeared on more than 100 million records. Her songs have been recorded by Grammy award-winning artists including Kelly Clarkson, Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani, Celine Dion, Faith Hill, Carrie Underwood, Santana and Pink. Scores of major recording artists including Britney Spears, Avril Lavigne, Pussycat Dolls, Miley Cyrus, The Jonas Brothers, Natasha Bedingfield, Jewel, Ashley Tisdale, Katharine McPhee, Taylor Hicks, Bo Bice, Clay Aiken, Ashlee Simpson, Hilary Duff, Jessica Simpson, Kylie Minogue, Enrique Iglesias, Nick Lachey and Marc Anthony have also released DioGuardi’s songs.
Over the last four years, she has been awarded 10 BMI Pop Awards for having written the most performed songs on radio. From her catalog of several hundred songs, over 264 have been released on major labels worldwide; and over 165 have appeared on multi-platinum selling albums. DioGuardi co-owns Arthous Entertainment, where she develops and mentors fellow hit writers, producers and artists.
Wow. That is one HELL of a resume. Kara’s quite attractive as well! Paula is gonna look even MORE like a lightweight next to Kara. Randy will too. Here’s hoping for some great catfights between Paula and Kara, and for Simon to immediately begin seduction attempts. Must-see tv!
