Nicki’s New “Idol” Feuds Simmers: Following a heated Twitter exchange between former “American Idol” judge Steven Tyler and new judge Nicki Minaj (which was followed by a previous spat between Nicki and Mariah Carey), the Aerosmith judge is apologizing to the feisty (that might be an understatement!) rapper. “I apologize if it was taken wrong, Nicki,” Stevem said Tuesday on Canada’s eTalk, (via E! Online). “But I am the farthest from [being a racist]. I am the last thing on this planet as far as being a racist. I don’t know where she got that out of me saying I’m not sure how she would’ve judged Bob Dylan.” Phew, we’re glad that has been put to bed… looks like Keith Urban and Randy Jackson are next on Nicki’s list!
Dear Jared Leto, Not To be Mean:… But you’re lack of eyebrows (for the upcoming “Dallas Buyers Club”) scare us. XOXO, Roll Call.
Kim Heads East: Kim Kardashian’s trip to the Middle East is happening! The reality star was spotted flying to Kuwait and Bahrain, where she’ll open up various Millions of Milkshakes shops… no word if Kim will adhere to local dress customs, but we look forward to seeing her try!
“Teen Mom 2” Star Jenelle Evans Says She Can’t Start Her Jail Time Because Of A Ke$ha Concert: Yes, you read that correctly! The consistently troubled reality star is due back behind bars after violating her probation (she was given the choice of two weeks in jail or another year on probation, opting for the jail time). But when her lawyer told her the start of her jail time, Jenelle’s world stopped. “No, no, you don’t understand. This is my idol. [Ke$ha is] my idol and I’m never going to be able to see her again,” she said on last night’s episode, followed by, “I know it sounds crazy, but if I have to stay on probation to see Ke$ha, it might be worth it.” Stay classy Jenelle, stay classy!
