Nicki Minaj Scared ‘American Idol’ Will Make Her Too Famous

nicki minaj worried american idol will make her too famous

Get ready to see more of Nicki Minaj this winter! A new season of ‘American Idol‘ is about to start, and she will be at the judges table, along with Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and the lone returning judge, Randy Jackson. Now that the time is here, Nicki’s worried her stint on ‘American Idol’ will make her TOO famous. I didn’t even know celebs worried about that these days!

“I had a lot of talks with people — my family, my best friends, my label, Lil Wayne, management and then the producers. Sometimes you are afraid of being too famous because it’s almost, like, is that even cool? Being that accessible, someone you see on TV every week? I never pictured myself as that type of person. I’m still surprised that I decided to do it.”

Nicki declined to discuss tension between herself and Mariah except to say:

“Sometimes things get heated for their own reasons. I don’t think the panel has an issue.

I have to admit, I’ll be tuning into ‘American Idol’ to see the new judging panel. Of course that’s exactly what the producers want! I’m putty in their hands- LOL. Are you planning to watch?

Is It A Crime To Love Madonna?

madonna stalker gets 3 years probation

I guess the answer to the question in the post is that you have to differentiate between love and obsession (i.e., stalking). Dealing with stalkers has got to be one of the WORST aspects of being a celebrity. Madonna, who’s been famous for decades, surely knows this well. A man who’s been accused of stalking Madonna, and was arrested outside her apartment, has just received three years probation. I’m not sure why it bothers me even more that he’s a retired firefighter, but for some reason, it does.

Robert Linhart received three years’ probation after he was caught outside of Madonna’s apartment. He had spray painted love notes to Madonna nearby a couple of days before his arrest. Robert was arrested just for being outside because he was arrested twice before in 2010. Despite the love notes and violating the orders to stay away from the star, Robert said he no longer has feelings for Madonna.

 “She’s enjoying her life with her 24-year-old boyfriend. I don’t feel the same about her. The woman advocates free speech in Russia and then she has her security violate my right to free speech.”

Robert’s attorney said he plans to appeal the sentence, arguing it’s not a crime to love Madonna.

“Mr Linhart served with the New York City Fire Department for 20 years. He put his life on the line for the citizens of New York.”

Oy vey.

How Much Does Kanye West Love Kim Kardashian?

Kanye West, who looks like he doesn’t want to be bothered any time, really must love his girlfriend, and the future mother of his child, reality TV phenom Kim Kardashian. Why do I say this? Because Kanye’s agreed to continue filming reality TV for her sake. Since announcing Kim’s pregnancy, Kanye has agreed to stay involved with the Kardashian shows.

 Kanye will do anything for Kim. He didn’t want to be on at all – or one episode. But he gave in for Kim.”

It’s LOVE, everybody! Things are just going Kanye’s way these days. When police caught up with him speeding away from the Chateau Marmont up Sunset Blvd. They also reportedly asked him about his tinted windows, but ultimately, Kanye got off with a warning. Luck is shining on him these days!

Julianne Hough Drew On Real-Life Abuse Experience For ‘Safe Haven’ Character

julianne hough for cosmo feb 2013

Julianne Hough rocked an edgy look for her Cosmopolitan cover! Cosmo may be known as a light, fun, and, above all, sexy, magazine, but Julianne’s interview with them was actually very serious. In her new movie, ‘Safe Haven,’ Julianne’s character is abused. It turns out she had real-life experience to draw from.

On her time in the UK as a child where she studied dance at London’s prestigious Italia Conti Academy of Arts: “I was 10 years old looking like I was 28, being a very sensual dancer. I was a tormented little kid who had to put on this sexy facade because that was my job and my life. But my heart was the same, and I was this innocent little girl. I wanted so much love.”

With her parents an ocean away, Hough says the adults around her took advantage. “While I was in London, I was abused, mentally, physically, everything,” she says. In what way or by whom exactly, she declines to say: “I’m a very forgiving person, and I don’t want to hurt anybody. What’s past is past.” A ripple of tension tightens a face that is always so relaxed and bright, like a sheet being pulled tight. It got worse, she says, “when I started hitting puberty, when I started becoming a woman and stopped being a little girl.”

On not speaking much about the situation prior to now: “This is the farthest I’ve ever gotten into my London situation. I was told if I ever went back to the United States, three things were going to happen. One: I was going to amount to nothing. Two: I was going to work at Whataburger. And three: I was going to end up a s*ut. So, it was like, I can’t go back. I have to be this person.”

What a nightmarish situation! This is why parents are so scared to send their kids away. It’s horrible Julianne had to experience that. You can read how Julianne finally got out of the situation, as well as learn more about her movie ‘Safe Haven’ (in theaters on February 14) in the February issue of Cosmopolitan, which will be available on January 8.

Kim Kardashian’s People Need Not Contact Jenny Craig Or Medifast For Endorsement Deal

kim kardashian not going to get deals from jenny craig or medifast

Kim Kardashian may be set to net a cool $16 million from endorsement deals related to her pregnancy, but none of that money will be coming from Jenny Craig or Medifast. Both companies tell TMZ they aren’t interested in signing Kim on to help her lose her baby weight after she welcomes baby Kimye. Why?

Medifast said it’s not looking for any celeb endorsements — but Jenny Craig was more specific, telling us they’re … focusing on “real results for real women” this year.

Interestingly, JC’s rep added, “We will continue our working relationship with Mariah Carey.”

Kind of ironic that Jenny Craig would pass on a reality TV personality for “real women,” don’t you think? Kim could still be signed up with Quick Trim, so it may be a moot point.

If Kim is looking to make some money shedding her baby weight, she might want to try Nutrisystem. Haven’t seen much of Janet Jackson and Nutrisystem, so that may be Kim’s best bet. Weight Watchers seems to be happy with Jessica Simpson (and in addition to Jessica, they’re still working with Jennifer Hudson).
