Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon shared several pictures from their Thanksgiving holiday. This photo of their twins, Roc and Roe, is so awwwdorable that I am thankful for it. It looks like it should be on a Hallmark card instead of Instagram, it is that precious!
Hot 97 asked Mariah Carey if she liked being on American Idol and she said “No, I hated it.” Then she went on to explain that when she signed on, she was told it would be a three person panel. As we know they added a fourth person, Nicki Minaj, and the two Divas famously did not get along. At one point in the interview Mimi said, “It was like hell, like going to work every day in hell with Satan.” You have to wonder if she is referring to Minaj with the last part of that statement. I am going to say, yes.
Not only did she admit that they lied to her about how many people would be on the panel, but she also admitted they dangled some nice money in front of her. While the money was good, it doesn’t sound like it was worth it to her.
And there was one more revelation in the interview, she said she liked the contestants but was not happy about which ones moved on. She revealed, “It was disappointing when they would, for political reasons, not put people through.” What that means? I think it is up to all of us to read into it, as we would like. And if we are reading what she said correctly, then I think that Fox is going to have to make some more changes to the show when it returns in January. Even more than they already have because the ones they have made are like putting a Band-Aid on a failing dam.
Mariah Carey Tweeted this picture of her preparing to do press and I wonder if she wants the reporters to look her in the eyes? I mean her expression and barely zipped top say no, but I am sure somewhere deep inside of her the windows to her soul are saying yes. Really deep inside of her.
Mariah Carey Tweeted this photo and said, “Happy Birthday to my Hubby @NickCannon…’my baby I’m waiting on youuuu’hahaha! KKLB! GHL!!!! Mwah !!!!!😘” Seeing how provocative that birthday greeting is, you have to wonder if she wanted to keep it private instead of going public like she did on Twitter. But then again we have wear a lot less, I just don’t remember her looking as sexy as that before. Do you?
Mariah Carey Tweeted the above picture of her daughter Monroe with her mic and it looks like the two year old is following in her mother’s footsteps. If the little girl gets her mom’s voice and her dad’s personality, she is might grow up to be even bigger than her parents. And that is a very good thing!
After just one season Mariah Carey is saying goodbye to American Idol. Her publicity firm PMK*BNC Tweeted her departure by saying “W/ global success of ‘#Beautiful’ (#1 in 30+ countries so far) @MariahCarey confirms world tour & says goodbye 2 Idol.” The news is no surprise, but how she did it is because she didn’t do it herself. They buried the lead in a Tweet.
So that means that in the last few weeks the only original judge Randy Jackson, Mike Darnell, who ran Fox’s Alternative Programming, and Mariah Carey have all quit the show after a disastrous season in the ratings. The show hit several series lows and lost over half the viewers they used to get at it’s peak.
When it comes to fixing Idol? I think they really need to cancel The X Factor because the singing competition fatigue has gotten to people like me. They also need to not make the show about the judges any more and focus on the contestants. They really just need to get back to what they were and not what they are now. Can it be done? Yes. Will it be done? Probably not.
UPDATE: Nicki Minaj is also leaving American Idol. 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!!!” No one is surprised, and I am not sure if anyone is really upset by her departure. She is the reason I didn’t watch this season.
So now it is up to Keith Urban to stop singing The Clash’s Should I Stay or Should I Go? and just go!
Mariah Carey Tweeted this picture of her two boys in bed together and the world wide web collectively went “awwwwwww”. Seriously can this picture of Nick Cannon and his two year old son Roc be any cuter? You can tell those twins are being brought up in a house of love when you see a picture like this one!
BTW I love how perfect Cannon’s shirt is for the occasion, he was definitely Wild ‘n’ now he is Out like a light.
Mariah Carey was on Good Morning America this morning and to say it went to sh!t would be an understatement. Not only did Mimi say “sh!t” twice in a few seconds, her dress also popped open and had to be fixed on live TV.
Gotta hand it to Mrs Nick Cannon, she always knows how to leave an impression on television.
Five years ago the world was shocked when Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon got married after such short courtship, and no one thought it would last including me. Well now 5 years and 2 kids later, they are still going strong. So strong that they renewed their vows yesterday to celebrate their 5th wedding anniversary. The nuptials at Disneyland were fit for a Princess and her Prince and they looked the parts.
Hopefully the four of them will live happily ever after just like a fairytale. Which is basically what their marriage is.
Mariah Carey Tweeted these pictures of her family having a pajama party and I realized that they all wear the same nightclothes. Well Mimi and Roe wear pink stripped PJs while Nick and Roc’s are blue.
Seriously how sweet is the family that dresses alike at night! I wish more moms and dads dressed like their offspring in the bedroom. Mostly because I would love to see pictures of my male friend in a Disney Princess nightgown.
