Mariah Carey's Husband Rants Against "Evil Bottom Feeders" in the Media, Says He'll "Always Love" Mariah "Unconditionally"

Mariah Carey's estranged husband Nick Cannon is getting a little bit testy about the stories that have popped up in the last couple of weeks about the end of their marriage. Now, he's taken to Twitter to defend himself and, yes, Mariah, from the media's "evil" stories. "During this challenging time for me and my family it saddens me that the media can be such evil bottom feeders," he writes in a lengthy series of posts. "Because my family & I haven't been forthcoming with personal information, people are quick to paint negative pictures and spread rumours. For the record…

Demi Lovato Launches Skin Care Line, "Devonne by Demi"

Demi Lovato looks great in her makeup-free selfies, and now we know why: she's really into skin care.  So much so, in fact, that she's just launched her very own skin care line, Devonne by Demi. “Ever since I was a young girl, I have always been about skincare for some reason,” she told People magazine, adding, "When you take time to do things for yourself like care for your skin, you feel the most confident...I can guarantee that if you take care of your skin and use products that work, you’ll find that confidence.”  The line's newly launched website…

Kelly Clarkson's Playing Fantasy Football for Charity...with You

Kelly Clarkson's a new mom, so she probably won't have time to attend a lot of football games this season.  Still, the singer's a big football fan, which is why she's getting involved in a fantasy football league...and it's all for charity. "Hey y'all I’m playing fantasy football for the first time ever to raise money for [St. Jude Children's Research Hospital]. I challenge you to play me!" Kelly tweeted.  She's teamed with a company called Fantasy Fundraising for the project, and depending on how much money you want to donate, you can play a little or a lot. If…

Miley Cyrus Blamed for Cancellation of Vermont High School Dance

It's just like a real-life version of Footloose: the principal of a high school in Vermont has canceled the homecoming dance -- and according to her, it's all Miley Cyrus' fault. In a letter to the editor of the local Vermont paper The Bennington Banner, Sue Maguire, the principal of Mount Anthony Union High School, writes, "Over the past couple of years, since Miley Cyrus took the stage 'twerking' at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, our students’ dancing behavior has crossed the line of what we can condone as appropriate behavior at a school." "Twerking is dancing to popular…

Speculation About Madonna's New Single Being Fueled by Odd Siri Connection

Has Madonna teamed with Apple to launch her new single?  That's what some are speculating, after the website Digital Spy noticed a strange connection between the singer and Siri, Apple's voice-activated assistant. For months now, Madonna has been using the hashtag #unapologeticb***h on her Instagram feed, leading fans to wonder if that's the title of the first single from her new album, on which she's been working for a while.  Well, here's the thing: if you ask Siri to look up that phrase, it takes you directly to Madonna's Wikipedia page, even though that phrase doesn't appear there.  The word…

Ariana Grande Is "Everything": Scores Second #1 Album in Less than a Year

Given that it features three top-10 hits, it's no wonder Ariana Grande's new album, My Everything, has debuted at #1 on the Billboard album chart.  But what's more impressive is the fact Ariana can now boast that she's racked up two number-one albums in less than a year. Ariana's previous album, Yours Truly, debuted at #1 a week after it was released on September 2, 2013.  She's the first woman since Britain's Got Talent winner Susan Boyle to have her first two albums debut at #1. Ariana is now one of only three women in the SoundScan era, which dates…

Taylor Swift "Shakes" Out Another Week at #1

No one has managed to shake Taylor Swift off the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 yet.  Taylor's new single "Shake It Off" remains on top for a second week, and the track also tops the Digital Songs chart for a second week, with 355,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.  Taylor posted a screen shot of someone on her team texting her the news, and her reply, which was a string of jumbled letters.  She captioned the shot, "When you're so excited, all reason and grammar goes out the window." Elsewhere on the chart, Meghan Trainor's "All About…

Jermaine Dupri Says He Wasn't Fired as Mariah Carey's Manager

Last month, Mariah Carey parted ways with her manager and longtime collaborator Jermaine Dupri. Now, the hitmaker is dispelling rumors that he was fired due to the disappointing sales of Mariah's latest album, Me. I Am Mariah…the Elusive Chanteuse. In an interview with Vlad TV, JD insists it was his decision to walk away from his management role, adding that most people assumed that Mariah let him go. "People think in their minds that that’s exactly how it has to happen," Dupri said. "It just can’t possibly be that Jermaine woke up one morning and didn’t want to do it no more."…

Unions Blast NFL's "Pay-to-Play" Super Bowl Halftime Scheme

It's looking more and more like Katy Perry, Rihanna, Coldplay or whoever else the NFL wants to perform during Super Bowl halftime next year won't have to pay for the privilege of doing so. As the Wall Street Journal first reported, the NFL had approached those three acts and offered them the chance to play halftime, with the caveat that they pay the NFL some of their future earnings.  But Deadline reports that several unions have now gone on record as condemning that plan. The AFL-CIO’s Department of Professional Employees and the American Federation of Musicians are both against the…

Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" Is "Billboard's" Official Song of the Summer 2014

In the end, it wasn't even a contest.  "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX has handily beat all competitors to be named Billboard's official Song of the Summer 2014. Each year, Billboard tracks the most popular songs, chart-wise, from Memorial Day to Labor Day, to determine what the real Song of the Summer is.  Not only did "Fancy" top the Billboard Hot 100 for seven weeks, it topped the publication's Song of the Summer chart for its entire 14-week run.  The last time a song dominated that chart for the entire summer was 2010, when Katy Perry's "California Gurls"…

Sam Smith Says After Beyonce Compliment, "I'm Done...I Don't Need to Do Anything Else"

Since his appearance on Saturday Night Live earlier this year, Sam Smith has scored a hit album and a hit single, played to sellout crowds everywhere and duetted with Mary J. Blige.  But he says now, he's achieved the ultimate accolade:  Beyonce complimented his voice. Sam tells the British paper The Mirror that when he was at the MTV VMAs last month, "Beyonce asked to meet me, so I went in and said 'Hi.' It was amazing: she took my breath away."  He adds, "She said my voice is like butter, so I am done for life now. I don’t…
