“I’m happy Mariah’s there, she’s a singer, she knows how to judge…” #shade

We don’t think J was trying to throw that slug at Nicki Minaj but at the same time, she herself is a singer, like Mariah… It just makes more sense for Mariah to be there…..

We kinda got off on her for how closely her video for “Love&War” mirrored some of Mariah’s past efforts but as you can see, she LOVES Mariah Carey, so do we so we’ll let her make it just this once 😉

FINALLY!!!! We love the song and love the video even more but have one issue…. This looks like deleted scenes from Mariah’s “We Belong Together”, “Don’t Forget About Us” and “H.A.T.E.U”…. It’s cool to pay homage to an artist but this was a little excessive… We know she stans for Mimi, we do to but we hope to see less Mariah in her next video!

Oh and one last note, nothing to do with the video… She needs to take some new promo pics immediately, this was the most appropriate pic we could find to tie to the post…

Nicki Minaj Talks Mariah Carey On Ellen!!

mimi and Nicki

We love Nicki but we haven’t felt the same way about her since the video of her coming for Mariah during an I.A audition went viral… Based on what she’s had to say and what Mariah’s had to say, we can conclude that FOX signed Mariah on to the show based on her being the only female judge….. They later added Nicki and that pissed Mariah off.. Mimi wasn’t mad at Nicki at all but really irritated with the networks decision to undermine her… The tension just built up and exploded, no one’s fault but the networks. We’ve forgiven Nicki, hopefully the rest of Mimi’s fan can do the same…..

Here’s an excerpt from the interview with Ellen:

“It was just two big ol’ divas, I guess,” said Nicki, who explained how it all started. “I heard them saying Mariah doesn’t want you on the panel, but I was saying, ‘No, I’m friends with Mariah.’ And I was like arguing with people, like, ‘Don’t believe everything you read. You’re crazy!’”

While she didn’t want to believe it, she eventually noticed the awkwardness. “I went there and I started feeling a little bit of the shade. I overcompensated by being crazier.”

According to Nicki, the dueling divas have buried the hatchet. “We’re fine. I cannot hold a grudge against Mariah Carey. What people don’t understand is that I’ve looked up to her for so many years. … I don’t know if she’s gotten over it, but I have.”

However, she is not looking forward to the live shows because of the potential conflict. “I don’t want anyone on the panel to say something crazy ’cause I don’t want to look like a crazy psycho again,” said Nicki, who insisted she is not crazy.

Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas” Re-Enters Billboard’s Hot 100!!!

mariah carey glee episode

The song is decades old yet Mariah manages to cash in on the song’s popularity every year! Billboard reports the following:

The singer’s 1994 holiday chestnut returns at a new peak, as titles of any era are, as of this year, eligible to appear on the list if ranking in the top 50.

Eighteen years after its release, Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” is a top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 at last.

With airplay and sales for holiday hits increasing, the track, from Carey’s 1994 album “Merry Christmas,” re-enters the chart at No. 29, a new peak position. “Christmas” had logged one prior frame on the chart, reaching No. 83 the week of Jan. 8, 2000. It didn’t reach the Hot 100 upon its original release, as it was not available as a commercial single in 1994; per chart rules at the time, such tracks were not eligible to appear on the Hot 100. The carol did, however, rise to No. 12 on the Radio Songs chart the week of Jan. 7, 1995 (the highest rank for a holiday song in the chart’s 22-year history).

How does an 18-year-old song show on the Hot 100 alongside current hits (including those by Justin Bieber, who was not yet a year-old in late 1994)? Per current rules, any title, regardless of age, is eligible for the chart if it ranks in the top 50. Hot 100 rules changed at the beginning of the 2012 chart year to include titles of any era should they place in the list’s top half; tracks by Whitney Houston benefitted from the revision following her February passing, with, most noticeably, her 1992-93 Hot 100 No. 1 “I Will Always Love You” returning and soaring to No. 3 in March.

Two other versions of Carey’s modern-day Christmas classic charted on the Hot 100 before the original’s return this week, both last year. Bieber’s take (subtitled “Superfestive!”), with Carey, ranked at No. 86 the week of Nov. 19, 2011, and Michael Buble’s ballad interpretation made a cameo at No. 99 six weeks later (amid a five-week reign on the Adult Contemporary chart).

Carey’s original “Christmas” returns to the Hot 100 with digital sales of 69,000 (up 79%), according to Nielsen SoundScan. It bounds 37-19 on Digital Songs and leads Holiday Digital Songs for a fourth consecutive week. (The song has sold 2.3 million download to date). On Holiday Airplay, “Christmas” receives Greatest Gainer honors, lifting 7-5 with 26 million in audience (up 17%), according to Nielsen BDS. It re-enters Radio Songs at No. 48. “Christmas” tops the Holiday Songs chart, which measures sales, airplay and streaming, for a third week in a row.

Aiding the song’s momentum, Carey appeared on NBC’s “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” on Dec. 4, performing a merry version of the song with Fallon and the show’s house band the Roots on miniature instruments (including xylophone, bongos and wood blocks). A chorus of children added background vocals. The clip has racked 7 million YouTube views since its posting.

Upon her return, Carey claims her 34th top 40 hit on the Hot 100 (and first since “Obsessed” climbed to No. 7 in 2009). She breaks a tie with Connie Francis and Rihanna (each with 33) for the fourth-most top 40 Hot 100 entries among women. Madonna leads all female soloists with 49 top 40 hits, followed by Aretha Franklin (43) and Taylor Swift (39). Elvis Presley leads all acts with 80 top 40 Hot 100 entries (not counting his numerous hits that predate the chart’s Aug. 4, 1958, launch).

Billboard.com’s entire menu of charts, including the Hot 100, Digital Songs, Radio Songs and Holiday Songs, will refresh tomorrow (Dec. 13).
