Well its about time American Idol had a real music icon as a judge. Mariah Carey will be a great addition to the show. Why? Because she can sing!!! Her octave range is out of this world and will all her accolades she can provide so much influence on these singers. Mariah Carey issued the following statement on joining the show “As a singer, songwriter, and producer, it’s going to be fun and rewarding to help find new talent and give back with ‘American Idol’,” said the platinum pop star. “I’m currently in the studio working on my new album and its first single, ‘Triumphant,’ which will be out early next month. I can’t wait to channel my creative energy as a part of this show which is a massive global phenomenon.”
Basketball Wives star Jennifer Williams has decided to drop the "slap lawsuit" against Nia Crooks. As many of you know Nia Crooks, Evelyn Lozada's personal assistant and Jennifer's former friend, slapped Jen during a heated argument that aired on VH1.

While Kim Kardashian is moving on with life and thriving in both her love life and her career Ray J is still in a rut. Kim K tweeted some encouraging words to her followers about moving on in life and leaving your past in the past and Ray J RTs her and laughs. So it leads me to wonder...what is his motive? Let's be real Ray J will always be known as "Brandy's little brother", his singing career has drastically stalled, his acting career is basically over, and he is still under fire as many blame him for Whitney Houston's death (although there is no proof). It seems as if Ray J just does publicity stunts to stay relevant...let's not forget his infamous phone call to the breakfast Club over his supposed fight with Fabolous... Words of advice Ray J...go into hiding and stay there until you mature. SMH

Do singing groups even exist anymore? Like, is it possible in 2012? If it is... They aren't RnB...theist standing boy group we had, Day 26, have finally called it quits. We basically saw their rise and fall right before our eyes. Their public image kind of went down hill after Que was released from the group and they took a 2 or 3 year hiatus. None of the remaining fellas have really seen any type of fame aside from Willie, who had a few successful mixtapes and recently started in a BET play. Nonetheless, they would like to pursue solo careers...they issued the following press release today: “It is with great sadness and deep pain that we regret to inform you that effective immediately, Atlantic Records Platinum recording group, DAY26 have decided to take a break from the group and focus on their own individual projects.

DirectTv, who has a subscriber base of more than 20million people, has lost its Viacom channels. After months of negotiations DirectTv and Viacom were unable to reach a reasonable agreement and as a result Viacom demanded DirectTv remove their channels. Apparently Viacom wants a 30% price increase to run their channels and DirectTv isn't having it...so their subscribers had to say goodbye to BET, MTV, VH1, Nickelodeon, TV Land, and many more channels. I don't have DirectTv but I hope it gets worked out soon!
