Kelly Clarkson wants her pre-baby body back. Except, it appears as though she’d like someone else’s body a lot more than her own.
After watching and live-tweeting the MTV VMAs on Sunday night, Kelly tweeted, “It’s official. I want a body like Nicki Minaj. That should take like 2 lifetimes for me to achieve haha! She has an amazing body! Goodness!”
Nicki’s body was very much on display Sunday night, since she performed in what amounted to a green bra and panties.
Kelly also had nice things to say about American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez, tweeting in response to a photo of her from Sunday, “oh my gosh hahahaha! She is stunning! Wow, simply gorgeous!”
The singer was very much into compliments all around Sunday night, giving shout-outs to Jessie J and Ariana Grande, and tweeting to Sam Smith, “Amazing job! I don’t know you but I listen to your voice all the time. You are blessed with an incredible voice!”
She also tweeted to Beyonce, referring to the video the Video Vanguard winner showed at the end of her epic performance of her daughter Blue Ivy, “I am a new mama and totally crying at your baby tribute, also when you perform it is in-freakin-credible!!!”

TMS Reports Mariah & Nick Divorce Is A Done Deal
Posted on August 21, 2014, 4:21 pm
The speculation that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s marriage has fallen apart is intensifying.
TMZ is now reporting that a divorce is a “done deal” after the two allegedly separated in May. Reportedly, their lawyers have been negotiating a custody agreement in regards to the couple’s three-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan.
TMZ claims Mariah is upset with Nick because he’s constantly working, thus making him absent from their children’s lives. In turn, Nick is allegedly frustrated that Mariah surrounds herself with “yes men.”
It was reported earlier this week by the New York Post’s Page Six that Nick and Mariah are separating after six years of marriage.

Biggest Collection of Madonna Memorabilia Ever Going on the Block
Posted on August 20, 2014, 3:37 pm
This fall the largest collection of memorabilia ever amassed from the Queen of Pop go on the block in Beverly Hills.
Julien’s Auctions, the leading entertainment and music memorabilia auction house, will be selling off a pile of the Material Girl’s material on November 7 and 8, both in person and online. The items span her entire professional career, as well as personal items from her pre-stardom life, such as her 1972 junior high school yearbook, estimated to bring between $800 to $1,200.
In addition, the famous Marilyn Monroe-inspired dress, stole and jewelry from the “Material Girl” video; more than thirty pieces of period clothing from her movie Evita; the outfits she wore in the videos for the songs “Music” and “American Pie”; and her costumes from the movies A League of Their Own and The Next Best Thing are all up for grabs, as are handwritten lyrics, an MTV VMA trophy, an American Music Award, signed checks and contracts and her personal make-up compact. Even a signed document relating to her separation from Sean Penn is on offer.
One of the most interesting items is Madonna’s day planner from 1988, in which she’s entered notes about appearances on Letterman, outings with then-husband Penn, birthday reminders and holiday plans. That’s estimated to fetch $2,000 to $4,000.
The most recent items up for sale probably are the latex mask, gloves, bra and panties Madonna sported for her S&M-inspired photo shoot with Katy Perry for the cover of V magazine earlier this year. Those are expected to fetch between $1,000 and $4,000.
From November 3 through the 7th, many of the items will be on public display at Julien’s Auctions’ Beverly Hills location. Visit JuliensAuctions.com to find out how to bid.
Sam Smith: I Want to Be the Biggest-Selling Male Pop Star in the Entire World
Posted on August 19, 2014, 4:54 pm
When most new artists have modest goals like their first album to go gold, or they want their first single to hit the top ten. Sam Smith’s are much more ambitious; he wants nothing less than world domination.
Speaking to the British paper The Guardian, Sam says, “I want to be the biggest-selling male pop star in the entire world.” He adds, “I really want that, but at the same time I want to keep this,” pointing to his heart. “I don’t want to lose this.” Asked if it’s even possible to have both, he insists, “I’m going to make it possible.”
Sam’s debut album In the Lonely Hour and his single “Stay with Me” are already huge hits, but the ambitious Brit says he’s already looking far down the road with an eye towards his goal. “Even right now I have the title in my head to my second album; I know what it’s going to sound like,” he claims. “I have the idea in my head for the artwork and I also have the idea for the artwork for my third album.”
The only thing that might turn Sam from his goal? Food. “I think I prefer food to singing. It’s really bad, isn’t it? Food is my favorite thing in the world,” he tells The Guardian. “I always say if I ate what I actually wanted to eat, I’d be in one of those electronic scooters because I’d be too big.”
A self-admitted former “fat kid,” Sam says he did worry that his less-than-perfect physique might keep him from being a pop star. But, he points out, “People like real life. Why do people like all this crap television out there? Because you’re looking at what you can relate to. And music should be speaking about things you can relate to.”
“That’s the key,” he adds. “I can’t relate to skinny, perfectly-sculptured, tanned men singing about gold chains and Ferraris, because I’m not that way.”
