Keep reading for both of their announcements as well as the statements from Fox and Idol producers on both Mariah and Nicki’s departures.

Nicki Minaj signed on to be a judge for American Idol just before their current season began airing, joining fellow R&B diva Mariah Carey. The two personalities didn’t mesh well to say the least, and many fans feel that their non-stop feuding has taken away from the mission of the show — which is to find America’s top singer, not be a reality show about drama between the judges. With the show’s ratings at an all-time low, producers are feeling the pressure to make a change, and it appears that Nicki Minaj won’t be returning next season.

Sometimes I just have to write these bad rascals up because of the wonderful pop name associations. I figured the opportunity may never come again to refer to Nicki Minaj, Steven Tyler and Bob Dylan in the same post so I better get to it before the times they start a changing. Tyler called out Minaj using Dylan as a reference and Nicki fired back via Twitter calling Tyler a racist based on his statements. Get the blow by blow that was blowing in the wind and find out why both Tyler and Minaj were way off base with their assumptions.
Okay, so everyone (optimistically) thought Justin Beiber had a sex tape this week when he started talking about losing “a lot of personal footage” because someone stole his equipment. A photo of a male member even floated around the internet, which turned out to not be Justin.
In fact, the “footage” in question is probably just a music video premiere.
Nicki Minaj loves to rock a colorful wig, but she’s recently let us get a glimpse of what’s underneath all that blond and neon.
