Nicki Minaj insists she’s not a “crazy psycho” but she is most definitely wigging out.
On The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Nicki talked about her much-publicized feud with Mariah Carey on the American Idol set. (quote) “It was just two big old divas, I guess. I went there and I started to feel a bit of the shade. Your feelings are hurt and you can't believe it so you kind of just compensate with being crazy.”
Idol returns with weeks of taped auditions before the live shows begin. And Nicki can't promise that the feud won't reignite. Her final words to Ellen were, (quote) “I cannot trust myself. I don't want anyone on the panel to say something too crazy because I don't want to look like a crazy psycho again.”
But Nicki's guru wig builder has seen enough. Terrence Davidson just issued a press release announcing his resignation citing creative differences. (quote) "I've decided to step away as hair stylist and wig creator for Nicki Minaj. It has been an amazing experience offering me a chance to express my creativity and exhibit my love for the art form of wig design." The world will now be a little less colorful. Sniff.
With 87 years to go, it's kind of early to call this, but "GQ" magazine has chosen the 100 Hottest Women of the 21st Century. And they gave Beyonce the ultimate title of "Miss Millennium". It's not just a straight, ranked list. It's pretty much all over the place, and in some cases it doesn't seem entirely serious. But here are some of the other entries…
The Jessicas…Simpson, Biel, Alba and Paré
Blue Chicks . . . a.k.a. Rebecca Romijn and Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique in the "X-Men" movies, Zoe Saldana in "Avatar", and Smurfette
Prince Harry and George Clooney are among the World's Most Eligible Bachelors, according to "Town & Country" magazine. The magazine's list of the 40 most eligible single guys includes a lot of people you've never heard of…mostly the kids of royalty and rich people. Here are the most notable names…
Patrick Schwarzenegger…son of Arnold
The Winklevoss Twins (They're the ones who supposedly got squeezed out of Facebook. But they ended up with MILLIONS from it anyway.)
Here we go again….Britain's "Sun" tabloid clams Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are OVER. Supposedly, he broke it off this past weekend. A so-called "source" breaks it down like this: Quote, "Kristen was supposed to be Rob's date for the Golden Globes, but he told her he wants to cool it off. "He loves her…but would rather go back to being good friends so they can rebuild their trust and focus on work after 'Twilight'. "Kristen's upset but understands. She shouldn't have pushed him to reconcile after her infidelity. She's hoping he'll come around and time will be a great healer."
Oprah Winfrey was on "CBS This Morning" yesterday to discuss her interview with Lance Armstrong…(Which is now airing in TWO parts, by the way: Tomorrow and Friday night, on OWN.)
Oprah said that Lance did admit to using performance-enhancing drugs, but she added, quote, "He did not come clean in the manner I expected." However, she did say she was "satisfied" with his answers.
Oprah said she had 112 questions prepared, and she got through most of them. And things got so intense that at one point, he asked her to LIGHTEN UP. At the same time, though, Oprah said Lance definitely came prepared. She said, quote, "We were mesmerized and riveted by some of his answers. People around the world have been waiting to hear [them]."
Here's something you're not going to hear too many guys admit: Ryan Gosling loves to KNIT. He says, quote, "I did this scene in 'Lars and the Real Girl' where I was in a room full of old ladies who were knitting, and it was an all-day scene, so they showed me how. It was one of the most relaxing days of my life. "If I had to design my perfect day, that would be it. And you get something out of it at the end. You get a nice present. For someone who wants an oddly shaped, off-putting scarf."
In other "Honey Boo Boo" news: Mama June has reportedly banned "Crazy Tony" from appearing on the show…because he's just TOO CRAZY. In November, Tony was arrested for being involved in a prank where a man was scaring people on the side of a freeway in a giant gorilla suit. Mama June says, quote, "We love him as a friend . . . but that was a crazy story. Not trying to be mean, but we want to keep it family oriented." Despite the fact that Honey Boo Boo refers to Tony as a "cousin"…Mama June says, quote, "Crazy Tony's just a family friend…who's just crazy." Crazy Tony wasn't happy to hear about being dropped from the show. But he didn't go crazy…thankfully…he simply said, quote, "TV has changed that family."
Serial dater Taylor Swift reportedly asked her friend, actress Jennifer Lawrence, to ask her Silver Linings Playbook co-star Bradley Cooper if he would be interested in going out with the pop star. Sources told RadarOnline the 23-year old Swift, who just broke up with her latest flame, One Direction member Harry Styles, begged her buddy Lawrence to set up a date with Cooper while all three were in attendance at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday. The source said Cooper “politely declined,” adding, “Bradley has absolutely no intention of getting together with Taylor. First of all, her reputation precedes her. Bradley is very wary of dating someone who is a bit of a serial dater like Taylor.”
