The devil really does wear Prada! Word on the curb is that our favorite Latina rump shaker is ‘shaking the table’ when it comes to Mariah Carey. Jennifer Lopez is reportedly giving Nicki Minaj tips on how to irk the ish out of Mariah Carey. Carey and Minaj have been going back and forth since signing on for the show. The rest of the story and more in today’s ‘What’s Brewing” report for idv8radio.com!
Remember when singers just sang? Maybe they wrote a few songs too, or sold a perfume at the CVS, and perhaps acted in a few movies but nothing really overshadowed their singing and hopping around on stage? Those days are over, thanks to the need to have 5,6,7,8, 50-11 sidehustles. It’s not enough to put out a good product. Nope, because folks just aren’t buying it anymore. We’re illegally downloading it, sharing it and watching the concert highlights on YouTube, all for free-99. It’s really hard out here for a diva, it would seem. Enter: the weight loss commercial. If you haven’t had a smash hit in years, you can lose some el-bees and #BAM, career’s back at 100 (or a good 85). Jennifer Hudson, Mariah Carey and, now, Janet Jackson have all discovered the formula. One is wailing with her former curvy self to show the beauty of Weight Watchers. The other dusted off the wardrobe from the Honey video for Jenny and the latter, is going for the more reasonable, I’m just eating better approach (oh, she has a book too) for Nutrisystem.

Don’t say nothing bad about Miss Mimi’s Marriage! During her “Look at me, I’m skinny again” tour for Jenny Craig (she’s the new face of Jenny), Mariah Carey was asked by Gayle King about her Barbara Walters interview, in which she said she trusts her husband, Nick Cannon, “sometimes.” Mariah said her response to Barbara proves they have a real relationship… and, she wasted no time in taking a subliminal shot at that sham of a union between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries.

I have questions and concerns. First off, it looks like you’re actually wearing sneakers with this sweat suit. Your appropriate choice of footwear confuses me. Who are you? Are you the same woman who showed off how she Stairmasters wearing stilettos? I want that MiMi back, I have invested way too much time in accepting your ridiculousness for you to turn into Mom-Mi, all reasonable and grown up and ish. What the junk?!
I mean I guess the good news is clearly you have become a dawg (apparently the NY’er in me doesn’t pronounce that word “correctly”. Whatevers!) hoarder!
I seriously hope your happiness hasn’t wiped your awesome wackiness away. Normal is so…boring!
PS, can you get back into the studio so you have some music to do some um.. ‘dancing’ too? Thanks!
Is Mariah Carey holding a double shot of Nick Cannon?
Mimi was on Radio Disney promoting her “Merry Christmas II You” album this week when she told host Ernie D. that she sings songs from that album to her baby-in-belly. She then said “I just hope that they don’t turn out hating Christmas!”
A simple mistake or twins in the oven?
I don’t think there’s enough feathers, butterflies, lollipops and Hello Kitty in the world to handle simultaneous Mariah babies. But, we’ll find out soon…
Mariah Carey has confirmed the worst kept secret ever to Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush… she’s pregnant! In a clip from her interview with Billy that aired on the Today Show this morning, she reportedly conceived naturally a couple of years ago but, sadly, they lost that baby. But, she’s pregnant now and due some time in the Spring (Mariah was coy with the due date). She says she and Nick Cannon don’t want to know the sex of the baby but, surely, she’ll cave in at some point because she’ll need to know whether or not she can decorate the nursery in Pepto pink.
A maybe pregnant Mariah Carey was doing her usual stage prance during a performance in Singapore when she took a dramatic diva fall while singing her hit, “Make It Happen.” Watch as her handlers um, er, ah, struggled helped her up.
Damn. It must suck to be Mariah Carey right now. She’s about 2 minutes from being added to our “searching for relevancy” tag. Word is her new remix album, Angels Advocate, has been canceled. The project had already been pushed back twice after her earlier studio album release tanked.
Angels Advocate was canceled just a month from its scheduled release date but some of the tracks may be released as singles. Her people confirm the cancelation but they won’t say what caused it. They are saying that Mimi may release another studio album or she may do another Christmas album. A decision has not been made though.
