Is The Institution of Marriage Dying? [Commentary]

There’s a state of emergency in America: married couples just can’t seem to stay together.

Whether over infidelity or irreconcilable differences, it seems celebrity couples are calling it quits left and right with no sign of hope in sight. So much so that a couple actually surviving is mythical in theory (hey, Jada and Will!) Other marriages that have joined the divorce roll call this year include Randy Jackson and wife Erika Riker, celebrity chefs Gina and Pat Neely, Sherri Shepherd and Lamar Sally, and Paula Patton and Robin Thicke….

Mariah Carey made a shocking appearance at Hot 97’s Summer Jam XX to perform her hit single “Beautiful” with Miguel. The five-octave songbird rocked a pair of white short shorts, and in true Mariah fashion, showed her midriff and plenty of cleavage. See the duo in action below: The performance was solidly good. The song still isn’t the greatest, but it was still thrilling to see Mariah on such an iconic stage. Miguel sounded great. Mariah on the hand sounded good, but something tells me some of that vocal wasn’t as live as she made it out to be. Just… Continue Reading

Movie Trailer: ‘The Butler’ Starring Forest Whitaker, Oprah, Terrence Howard

The first official trailer to the hotly anticipated The Butler has been released. Starring Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, Terrence Howard, Lenny Kravitz, Mariah Carey, Cuba Gooding Jr. and others, Butler is based on the true story of White House butler Eugene Allen, who served under eight presidencies from 1952-1986.

Nicki Minaj Rips Into ‘Access Hollywood’ Anchors on Twitter

Nicki Minaj found herself in yet another feud and this time it wasn’t with Mariah Carey. After being called out on Access Hollywood for walking off the red carpet during an interview, the rapper used the forum of Twitter to fire back:   Minaj’s response came after the entertainment show aired a segment of an altercation between her and online correspondent Laura Saltman during an American Idol post-show interview in which Nicki was asked about comments she had made on Twitter (presumably about Mariah). “That question doesn’t even make sense. If you want me to insinuate what you’re talking about I’m not… Continue Reading
