Mariah Carey Reminds Us Of Her Diva Ways When Asked About Nicki Minaj…

by: Taj | January 8th, 2013

Oh, Mariah Carey… How I missed you and your shady ways! Lastnight the “Vision Of Love” singer reminded us who the queen of all diva’s is when she appeared in a candid interview with Barbara Walters.

Barbara, being the seasoned interviewer that she is, pressed Mariah on many topics but really dug deep to get the skinny on her now infamous feud with Nicki Minaj on the set of American Idol. Mrs. Walters even confronted Mariah with some ‘questionable’ lyrics to a new Nicki Minaj song called “Hell Yeah” in which the pink-wigged one raps about Idol and at one point says; “I’m quick to check a bitch if she’s out of line” …

Mariah’s reaction? CLASSIC DIVA BITCHINESS! Check out the shade at the 4:07 mark…

Place Your Bets: Mariah Carey VS Nicki Minaj – Who Will Bail First?

by: Taj | October 5th, 2012

Let’s play a fun game and place bets as to who out of Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj will bail off of American Idol first and when??

As you all have been hearing… The two lovely ladies (and I use that term very loosely) had a little spat last week on the American Idol set…

Supposedly Mariah called Nickiincompetent” or a “bitch” or something and Nicki retaliated by saying she would knock Carey out… So, you would think the two would try to kiss and make up so they can continue with the show in harmony but instead the feud continued to escalate after Mariah decided to call her good friend Barbra Walters on The View and tell the viewers that Nicki also threatened to shoot her and that she feels “unsafe” on the show.

So I don’t care who’s side you’re on. I’m actually on neither side anymore and hope they BOTH get fired for their unprofessional behavior… What I want to know is who you think will renege on their contract and leave on the show first and when they will make their exit.

I’m guessing it will be Nicki and shortly after or during Hollywood week. Because we all know these two diva-egos will not last an entire season sitting next to one another without another confrontation! So tell me… Who and when?!!

Oh, doesn’t this seem like it was almost yesterday… ?

Nicki Minaj Pops Off On Mariah Carey On American Idol Set…

by: Taj | October 3rd, 2012

Hate to say “I told you so” but I’m gonna have to say it… By now many of you have probably already heard about and have seen the TMZ behind the scenes footage of Nicki Minaj letting Mariah Carey HAVE IT at a scheduled American Idol audition taping today in Charlotte, NC. And I’m not talking about some made-for-TV scripted show-down but some ghetto “I’m gonna know you out” style shenanigans that ultimately shut down the auditions prematurely.

In case you haven’t seen it yet, here is the footage followed by the transcript of some of what was said.

Nicki:You think I’m playin’, get your big ass on up and go. Bitch you can go… Bitch you can go… Bitch you can go! Say one more thing to me!

…. A bunch more of Nicki mouthing off that we can’t quite make out…

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

MariahOh 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, reprimanding everyday. No.”

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

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

I’m sorry but Nicki Minaj has no business being on this show. She’s too new, she’s too young, she’s hasn’t proven herself yet as a pop star or singer with longevity and to put it to you nicely… This bitch is just GHETTO!! If this was a bad wig competition, she could judge it but please get Nicki Minaj off of American Idol and replace her with a TRUE diva vocalist such as Beyonce, Toni Braxton, Kelly Rowland…  Or hell, bring back Kara DioGuardi or Paula Abdul for that matter! Anyone else with a shred of talent and the maturity level above a ratchet ass high-school teenager! Then again, Mariah is know in the industry as being a raging diva so I’m sure she did or said something to instigate this train-wreck behind the scenes performance! I think it’s safe to say these two will not last an entire season together! And as much as some might think this level of drama will bring ratings to the show… I predict it will be one of the nails in the American Idol coffin.

Nicki Minaj & Keith Urban Join American Idol Judges Panel…

by: Taj | September 17th, 2012

Yup the rumors where true… Nicki Minaj is in fact joining the American Idol judges panel alongside Mariah Carey for the upcoming new season! Country crooner Keith Urban will also be joining the panel and Randy Jackson will be back for another season despite the rumors that he dropped out. Mariah and Nicki sitting at the same table, voicing their opinions to me seems like a train-wreck waiting to happen!

Mean while, despite Britney Spears joining the X Factor mentor line-up, the Simon Cowell headed reality competition is suffering in ratings badly while Christina Aguilera and co. are riding high ratings-wise with their show The Voice!! Now let’s see how Idol will fair with its new additions!

New Music: Alicia Keys – Girl On Fire + (Inferno Remix Ft. Nicki Minaj)

by: Taj | September 3rd, 2012

Soulful-pop songstress Alicia Keys has returned with a new single titled “Girl On Fire“! The new mid-tempo Ryan Tedder-esque ballad is very infectious – I’m already hooked after just one listen! An alternate “remixed” version of the song called the “Inferno Remix” has already surfaced but don’t get your hopes up… Not a remix for the clubs but more of a radi friendly version of the original which incorporates a little more of the beat and features a surprisingly not annoying cameo from Nicki Minaj. Check out both versions below and let me know if you’ve caught some of Alicia’s fire listening to her new song…

Nicki Minaj To Join ‘American Idol’ As Judge… ???

by: Taj | August 21st, 2012

It hasn’t been 100% confirmed yet but according to a lot of reliable sources such as Billboard, Nicki Minaj will be joining Mariah Carey & Randy Jackson as the third judge on American Idol! Wow… Talk about upping the ante! The two diva’s have worked together before when Mariah tapped her colorful wig wearing friend to make a cameo on her “Up Out My Face” single/music video! As a matter of fact, rumor has it that Mariah had a heavy hand in Nicki being chosen as the third and final judge for the panel! I have my reservations about this choice… But I guess we’ll have to wait to see if it pans out to be true… Then to see how she handles herself on the judging panel! I gotta admit… I can’t help but keep picturing that annoying as hell Lil’ Mama on the America’s Best Dance Crew panel and am having some serious doubts!

What do you think? Does Nicki Minaj make an appropriate American Idol judge?

Nicki Minaj Snaps At Interviewer For Calling Her Album ‘Pop’…

by: Taj | April 25th, 2012

Looks like cute lil’ old Nicky Minaj is the latest celeb to let all the fame and attention to get to her hot-pink wig wearing head! The “Starships” singer had a very “intense” conversation this week with Lia Nicholls of The Sun and basically lashed out at the unsuspecting interviewer when she referred to Nicki’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded as a “pop album”. Here’s how the interview gone-wrong went down according to Lia;

“Two minutes into our interview and the US rapper’s language is as colourful as her day-glo outfits.

And the awkwardness makes my face turn as pink as the shirt I’ve worn in a naive attempt to impress her.

I’ve royally upset her by describing her US and UK No1 album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded as “pop”. So I stutter an explanation: “It was meant as a compliment… I have listened to it…. ”

But the 29-year-old New Yorker ain’t having it. She barks back: “You know what it is, I get tired of people making statements that go to the world and they will read what you write and what you’re saying isn’t true.

“The album is a versatile album with five dance tracks on it. The album has 19 songs and the majority of it is hip-hop. How can you give people a true account if you haven’t listened to it in its entirety?”

Aware the clock is ticking, I timidly change tack: “Let’s start again, shall we?”.

She snaps: “No! I want you to realise how annoying it is when people come to me having not heard my album in its entirety because, if you had, then you wouldn’t have said that.

“My new album has five dance tracks on it produced by RedOne, who I’m absolutely in love with. Prior to that, it has a very mix tape feel that people need to know about. With people like yourself printing things about the album, it’s really, really misleading to the average person.”

With a last-ditch attempt to try to salvage the situation, I promise: “OK, all that will be in the piece, I assure you.”

And just as I think her third tirade is about to come crashing down on me, Nicki simply turns around and says: “OK.”

Phew.

So that was the low point of the interview — documented as promised — then finally, with our allotted 20 minutes now down to 15, the interview begins.”

Well at least it ended well(ish). No offense to Miss Minaj but YOU’RE A POP ARTIST!! You’re collaborating with pop producers and your songs are being played out on pop radio so yeah… Deal with it and embrace it. There’s nothing “hard” or “street” about you so stop with the facade. I actually find this outburst to be a bit offensive actually! The pop world has come to embrace you and catapult you to superstardom and you want to reap of its benefits but reject it at the same time? Don’t be such a “Stupid Hoe” and just take a good look at the charts! Your pop single “Starships” is soaring high while your Hip Hop effort “Beez In The Trap” finds itself… Well… It’s just stuck (and not in our heads).

Madonna & Nicki Minaj ‘Kiss’ Footage Finally Surfaces

by: Taj | March 26th, 2012

You all may remember a few months back when Nicki Minaj set Twitter ablaze when she gloated that Madonna kissed her on the mouth while they were shooting the video for M’s top ten hit “Give Me All Your Luvin’“! Just to refresh your memory, the tweeting went a little like this;

“OH MY f’ingggg Gahhhh!!!!! MADONNA jus kissed me!!!!! On the lips!!!!!!! It felt sooooo good. Soooo soft!!!! *passes out* aaahhhhh!!!!!!!!!

*kisses each one of my barbz so they too can taste queen madonna* I love u guys sooo much!!!! This video is of epic proportion! Love uuuu!!!

Sneak Peek: Madonna Ft. Nicki Minaj – I Don’t Give A (Preview)

by: Taj | March 15th, 2012

So much for keeping Madonna posts to a minimum. I posted the last MDNA preview last night and today we already have another for me to post! Today’s clip is called “I Don’t Give A” and features cameo #2 by Nicki Minaj! This one, to me, is one of the best we’ve heard so far from the previews! It kind of reminds me of something you would hear on her previous album Hard Candy (which I personally LOVED!) but also has a quality that is somewhat reminiscent of something from one of her earlier albums like True Blue or Bedtime Story. With that said, I can’t wait to hear the whole thing so I can form a proper opinion about the track!

Remix Treatment: Madonna – Gimme All Your Luvin’ (LMFAO Remix)

by: Taj | February 6th, 2012

Here’s a low quality preview of the LMFAO remix of Madonna’sGimme All Your Luvin’“. It’s actually pretty decent! I find it funny that they kept Nicki Minaj’s cameo intact but excluded M.I.A.’s in order to make room for their own. Then again, M.I.A.’s part does kind of draaagggg and wouldn’t translate well for this type of remix. Take a listen and tell me if Madge did good by bringing the party rockin’ duo on board for her new single!

Video Premiere: Madonna Ft. Nicki Minaj & M.I.A. – Gimme All Your Luvin’

by: Taj | February 4th, 2012

So let me start by saying sorry it took me so long to post this but I’ve been traveling on a plane all day! Now let’s get to the good stuff…

Madonna’sGimme All Your Luvin’” music video has finally been released today and I have to say that when I saw the minute or so preview on American Idol, I was a little worried but now that I’ve seen the entire clip I totally get what she was going for and I think she’s scored a home run… Or was I guess I should say “touchdown”. The Superbowl inspired video might look like a cheesy Old Navy commercial at first glance but by the time the clip is over, you can’t help but get sucked into its in your face concept. It’s basically a hight budget video made to look low budget with overly obvious fake sets and non-stop tongue in cheek shenanigans that only Madonna can deliver with such sincerity that she’ll some of you wondering if she’s lost her mind. Don’t get me wrong, in no way am I claiming this is the best Madonna video I’ve seen in years… I actually liked “4 Minutes” better, but it is great to see the side of Madge that doesn’t take everything too seriously and lets loose to have fun with her career for just a minute. As for the song itself, it already grew on me a lot since it first leaked a few months back but the video sure does help a lot to make me love it even more. For those of you that haven’t seen the video yet, here it is. Let me know if you’ll be giving Madonna all your “luvin’” over this one…

Sneak Peek: Madonna Ft. Nicki Minaj & M.I.A. – Gimme All Your Luvin’ (Video Preview)

by: Taj | February 2nd, 2012

Madonna previewed her much anticipated music video for her new single “Gimme All Your Luvin’” on American Idol tonight. As she promised, the clip is very football/Superbowl inspired and heavily features Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. as backup dancers through out the clip… Kinda reminicent of the Nicki Richards & Donna DeLory days back during her blonde ambition era. The song still sounds like the demo that leaked a few months back but will features cameo spots from Nicki & M.I.A. which I’m a little worried about since the demo version didn’t get rave reviews by most. Madonna is definitely playing up the bouncy, fun vibe of the track in the video and seems to be gearing the clip towards a more “youthful” audience. Time will tell weather or not the young’ins take the bate or weather she alienates herself from her more mature fan-base while trying to real in a newer generation. As a part of her more “mature fan-base”… I love this fun energetic version of Madge that we haven’t seen in a while. Can’t wait to see the rest of the vid!

by: Taj | February 2nd, 2012

So here’s a first listen to a clip of Madonna’sGimme All Your Luvin’” with a bit of Nicki Minaj’s part in it. I’m not going to post my official review of the single until I hear the whole thing from beginning to end in all its glory… But I am curious as to what you guys think of this little preview…

UPDATE: SO THEY PULLED DOWN THE SOUNDCLOUD LINK and I’m too smart than to mess with Madonna. Not hosting the song on our server! lol. But search for it… It’s out there and tell me if you’re feeling the clip. If you find another link, please share in comments. ;-)
