What were the American Idol producers thinking when they hired two divas to coexist in the same judging panel? Seriously, they had to know that something like this was going to happen. Earlier this week, TMZ released a video in which Nicki Minaj shouts insults at Mariah Carey. Now, Carey has told veteran journalist Barbara Walters that the rapper threatened to shoot her… if only she had a gun.

It has long been rumored, but never confirmed before today: Randy Jackson, the affably bland and inoffensive American Idol judge, has exited the judge’s inexplicably popular and long-running reality TV contest. Jackson was the last remaining cast member on American Idol who began on season one of the show, other than Ryan Seacrest.

Things certainly seem to be getting a bit wacky at American Idol—the long-running reality TV contest is currently on the hunt for new judges, and after nabbing professional nut Mariah Carey, rumors abounded that Kanye West and Nicki Minaj would be added to the roster. While that seemed a smidge unlikely, it seems they’ve reached out to yet another (slightly less currently luminous) pop star—Alanis Morissette.

For the seven people left in America who place any real importance or significance upon who will be crowned their next American Idol, it’s being reported today that, in addition to Mariah Carey being a new judge on the program for a whopping $18 million, Kanye West might be bringing his blend of subtlety, nuanced wit, and mature decision-making to the show. Brace yourselves.

Mariah Carey has officially joined American Idol, and will be sitting on the judging panel next season. Rolling Stone is reporting that Carey got a walloping $18 million with a one-year option for her role on the show. This now makes her the highest earning judge on any music competition show. Silly us for making Britney Spears‘ $15 million seem like a lot of money. That’s nothing!

Hip hop performer, radio host, America’s Got Talent judge and Mr. Mariah Carey—that’s Nick Cannon to you—is not exactly starting 2012 in his finest form. The “Gigolo” singer has been hospitalized for what is being described as a “mild” kidney failure.

Today in Pop Stars Say/ Do The Darndest Things!, a handful of our brightest pop stars (including Beyonce, 50 Cent, Usher, and Mariah Carey) are responding to the finger-pointing and accusations that have developed since it was revealed that they performed concerts put on by Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi (if you haven’t been around a television, computer, newspaper, magazine, radio, cell phone, or other human being in the past few weeks, you may have missed the news that Libya has been under severe scrutiny for crimes against humanity—oh and then there’s the whole state-sponsored terrorism thing of the ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘90s, approved by Gaddafi).
So I’m sure Mariah Carey has a totally reasonable explanation, aren’t you?

Mariah Carey made news a few days ago when it was announced that she and husband Nick Cannon are expecting their first child. However, it looks like the star still plans to keep busy while waiting for her offspring to arrive. On November 29th, Carey will debut her own brand of fragrance, jewelry and footwear on The Home Shopping Network. She will appear on the network that day to personally promote and sell the items being offered.

Just when we thought we were done with “crazy Mariah Carey” the outlandish alter ego of the Grammy winning singer decided to rear her head at the Palm Springs Film Festival. The singer turned actress has a supporting role in the acclaimed Lee Daniels film Precious, and won an award for her performance. When she went to accept it, all hell broke loose when she went into a random rant of giggles and pauses.
