Mariah Carey‘s latest tune is in support of the brand new Disney flick, “Oz The Great and Powerful” (in theaters now!)
Watch the just-released video directed by award-winning photographer/director David LaChapelle:
There’s just no stopping Betsey Johnson!
Hundreds of the blondeshell designer’s biggest fans came out to Macy’s at Roosevelt Field Mall in Long Island, New York on Saturday (Dec 15) for a once-in-a-lifetime meeting with her. New York City-based DJ Kalkutta helped keep the energy high in between raffles, giveaways (Betsey shoes, bags and other merchandise) and a printed picture with Betsey herself.
Designer Rebecca Minkoff has no shortage of famous friends and she enlisted some of her faves to help wish YOU and YOURS a Happy Holidays (to the tune of Mariah Carey‘s “All I Want For Christmas Is You”). Could she be any more fabulous?!
The 42-year-old will join the judges table for season 12. Her salary is expected to be somewhere north of $12 million — the sum paid Jennifer Lopez during her first year on the show — and possibly as high as $17 million.
Wowza! Go Mimi!
“It’s the biggest recording artist than any of these [singing competition] shows have ever had,” Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly told critics at their press tour in Beverly Hills on Monday. “It’s an artist many of these contestants have tried to emulate.”
The addition of Mimi comes on the heels of Steven Tyler quitting the show, and Fox being unable to convince Jennifer Lopez to sign on for a third round. Lopez was holding out for a raise beyond her $15 million second-year salary.
As of now, Randy Jackson (who is also Carey’s manager) is now expected to stay on board, though nothing has yet been announced.
Either way, Fox is expected to now focus on its search for another male judge. According to reports, former American Idol contestant Adam Lambert is being considered.
What do you think of Mariah joining the show? Will she improve Idol‘s ratings?
When one door closes, another door opens.
At least on American Idol, that is!
Steven Tyler, an American Idol judge for three seasons, told the world yesterday that he is not coming back as a judge on the next season of Idol.
The singer and frontman of Aerosmith said that he is leaving to focus and give more attention to his band which is coming out with a new album shortly.
Hours after the news was released, the Internet was abuzz that Mariah Carey was already in serious talks with American Idol producers to replace J.Lo who also announced she would not return to the competition show.
Mariah is managed by Randy Jackson, the only remaining judge on the show who has been there since season one. The singer, actress, and wife of Nick Cannon is known for her incredible voice, and we think would be a great mentor to future singers on the show. Guess we will have to stay tuned for the verdict!!
