She retweeted a message from her PR representatives which read: “W/ global success of “#Beautiful” (#1 in 30+ countries so far) @MariahCarey confirms world tour & says goodbye 2 Idol.”
Nicki Minaj, 30, soon followed with a leaving tweet, saying “Thank you American Idol for a life changing experience! Wouldn’t trade it for the world! Time to focus on the Music!!! Mmmuuuaahhh!!!

A Rihanna fan-Starkeema Greenidge has brought initiated a lawsuit, claiming she got a souvenir at a Rihanna concert that gave her herpes.
Starkeema Greenidge claims in a new lawsuit she was at a Rihanna concert at Barclays Center in Brooklyn when she was approached by a M.A.C. rep, who was hawking lipstick samples.
Greenidge claims the rep applied the RiRi Woo, red lipstick — endorsed by Rihanna — to her upper lip, told her to press her lips together and spread it around.
According to suit, the lipstick had been previously applied to the lips of others at the concert, and someone had the herp.
Greenidge told TMZ … the day after the concert, “My whole lip was irritated and hugely swollen.” Greenidge says she went to a doctor and he told her she had herpes.
The suit accuses M.A.C. of shoddy business practices — applying lipstick directly from the tube instead of using either disposable samples or individual swabs.
Greenidge is suing M.A.C. Cosmetics, Inc — not Rihanna — for unspecified damages.

“I’m not just trying to cure the feeling for right now,” he said. “There’s no good in it. The only good I get out of it is the feeling for the time being. After that, it’s trouble right after that.”
Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that, the “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star was arrested for felony gun and marijuana possession in 2008 and received a three-year probation sentence for the first-time offense.
After he failed a court-ordered drug test in March, Lil’ Scrappy refusal to provide another sample resulted in a warrant for his arrest.
“I don’t blame the judicial system for me being in my situation,” the rapper said. “I’ve put all fingers on myself. I have a willpower that God blessed me with, but I wasn’t able to use it because of my addiction.”
Hope he gets the help he really need…Geez!

According to Miguel, Black people should chill out on the judgment. Miguel thinks that Black people are the most judgmental people in the world. He took to twitter to say;
Im proud of my heritage but honestly, black people are the most judgmental people in the world. Shits sad man. We’ve been conditioned, pre-programmed to hate ourselves. That’s why I appreciate those who choose to think and act for themselves regardless of ethnicity or culture. The problem can not be fixed until the problem is recognized. Not everyone is the same thank goodness. And obviously, I love all my fans. Of course EVERYONE is judgemental. I just PERSONALLY believe WE are the most critical of our own
