OMG, Mariah Carey has a guest appearance in my favourite Seth Macfarlane cartoon, American Dad. (Take that Family Guy!) If I hadn't read about it over at Mariah Daily Journal, I would have totally missed her if I'd watched the show unaware.
In fact I had to watch the clip twice, even though I knew she was going to be in the scene, to figure out which character she actually was. The stupidity of which will become apparent when you see it only has one non cast memeber in it!
Talk about a crazy use of an A-list celebrity!
In a strange move, Kylie Minogue has joined Jay Z's Roc Nation management team. Already looking after stars like Rihanna, Rita Ora and The Sugababes, it'll be interesting to see how the team handle a seasoned, established professional like Kylie.
However they decide to market her, I predict a big push and lots of promotion for the next album. Hopefully it'll be the one that sees the Aussie Diva finally crack the American market.
Does the world really need a remix to Will.I.am and Britney Spears' Scream And Shout? Not only that, does it need another video?! Apparently so. Peep this tweet of Britney's new ensemble for the upcoming visuals. Looking vacantly fierce, Ms Spears!
In case you're wondering, yes the new song features guest rappers! Who you ask? Diddy, Lil Wayne, Waka Flocka Flame and Hit-Boy. Yay(!)

Edit: The video dropped while I was writing this! Lucky you guys, no need for sleepless nights waiting for it to hit! As I thought, this was not only unnecessary, but it is God awful!
Gaga will undergo surgery on her hip after suffering from chronic pain during her Born This Way Ball. Rectifying the problem (a "labral tear of the right hip," to be precise) will require plenty of rest and recuperation after the op, and this unfortunately means the entertainer will be cancelling 21 dates of the American leg of her tour, effectively ending it early.
On breaking the news, Gaga reached out to her fans asking for forgiveness, and to let them know that cancelling the shows hasn't been an easy thing :
I barely know what to say. I've been hiding a show injury and chronic pain for some time now, [and] over the past month it has worsened. I've been praying it would heal.
I hid it from my staff. I didn't want to disappoint my amazing fans. However, after last night's performance I could not walk and still can't.
I hope you can forgive me, as it is nearly impossible for me to forgive myself. I'm devastated and sad. It will hopefully heal as soon as possible. I hate this. I hate this so much. I love you and I'm sorry.
Get well soon, Gaga.<3 p="">
Indie artist Grimes bigs up Beyonce in a recent (now deleted) Tumblr post, saying:
How can you hate Beyonce? She's changing the world. She stands for people of colour and women everywhere succeeding in a stifling patriarchy without compromising her morals... She's always positive. She is everything good. And the fact that she is hugely successful is not a sh--ty thing. It's an important and amazing thing...
But way more important than that, she credits Mariah Carey for her musical alter ego existing altogether, saying :
And yet I know very few adult males who consider themselves serious 'music guys' who don't laugh when I say I like Mariah Carey. Why? Because she's beautiful and people like her. Therefore she must be selling sex, right? So obviously her music is terrible, right? Ugh. The first time I heard Mariah Carey it shattered the fabric of my existence and I started Grimes.
AMEN! I knew we were on the save wavelength!
