Oz the Great and Powerful is probably going to be really good in a way that’s completely disconnected from the original Wizard of Oz and that’s okay. I mean, come on – admitted professional deep-throater James Franco as the Wizard? Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz? I’m going to see it (or download it), for sure.
One thing that will definitely not be great about it is that Mariah Carey is doing the theme song. It’s a new track called ‘Almost Home’ that sounds like a demo she would have recorded in 1987 before getting a deal and a decent producer. While the full thing won’t be out until tomorrow, you can listen to a 30 second preview below:

Mariah Carey, she of crazy high notes and crazy low spirals, really wanted everyone to know that she was having an awesome Valentine’s Day. I, for one, am relieved. I don’t know if I would feel okay not knowing that she took a nice hot bubble bath.

Jennifer Hudson took a break from updating her thinspiration tumblr and trying to shrink her head down to match her body size this week to let the world what she thinks of the new panel of American Idol judges. My guess (because it’s my own opinion) is that she loves Mariah Carey, who’s a legend, thinks Nicki Minaj is clinically insane/really annoying and couldn’t give two shits about Keith Urban because all she knows is that he’s Nicole Kidman‘s husband and used to be an alcoholic.
Well, what do you say – am I right? Do I win the special prize?
Via The Daily Mail:
When it comes to the new judges on American Idol, the show’s most famous daughter, Jennifer Hudson, isn’t going overboard with praise.
‘It’s taken a bit to get used to the new judges. I come from American Idol, so I’m used to seeing Simon, Paula and Randy,’ she explained about the latest season during an interview on Live with Kelly & Michael on Friday morning.
‘So now it’s new faces, and to me, [Cowell, Abdul and Jackson] represented the show. It’s kind of awkward for me to see it with new judges.’
They’re ‘awkward’: Jennifer Hudson isn’t keen on the new American Idol judging panel, save for Mariah Carey, she told Kelly and Michael on Friday. But she did have some kind words for diva of divas, Mariah Carey.
‘Well, I’m happy that [Mariah Carey]‘s there because she’s a singer, so she knows what to expect, how to judge, even the position that the kids are in when they’re auditioning,’ she said.
But when asked about Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj – both successful artists, both singers – she could only respond with a vague, ‘Ummmm, yes.’
Listen, Idol has been dead in the water for at least the past three seasons and throwing the biggest stars in the world on that panel is not going to save it. Let it die, Fox. Mariah’s head is soon going to inflate too big to fit in the door, Nicki is going to go full-blown schizophrenic and Keith will be driven to return to drink. I don’t know what the hell Randy Jackson is going to do. Probably end up homeless on the corner, begging for “food, dawg“.

You guys might have noticed that I’m usually a pretty cheery, lighthearted person, but Christmas, my very favorite holiday, just makes me ecstatic. And it’s so close, so I’m barely able to function. But in all my Christmas cheer, I have to stop and talk to you guys about what Mariah Carey wore yesterday. And it brings deep sadness to my heart.
Because, ok, what the actual f-ck? Why? What is that thing she’s wearing around her waist? I mean, I know it’s completely stupid, but what’s the actual function of it? Is she gaining weight again? Her face looks a little fuller. If she is, that’s cool, I don’t hate, but might that, along with the giant corseted mess around her midsection, mean that she’s undergoing fertility treatments again? Perhaps most importantly, would there be any such explanation for her hair situation?

Ok, let’s do some critical thinking here. Mariah Carey is one of the biggest divas out there. Mariah Carey thinks that Mariah Carey is the greatest thing ever. And Nick Cannon, being Mariah’s loving husband, agrees with her on that. So what do they jam to?
They listen to Mariah’s music, natch! Specifically the song above: Nick said that “Hero” was his favorite sexy time song. Can you even imagine? Seriously, can you? Because my brain is being a sweetheart and it won’t let me envision this scenario. I think it’s trying to protect me from any kind of trauma, which would almost certainly occur if I were to Mariah doing her trademark high-pitched squealing while getting banged by Nick.
Oh god, I just imagined it.

I know what you’re thinking. You’re wondering why I’m seriously dedicating a whole post to some massage that Mariah Carey got, and I understand that. It does seem like a particularly boring subject, but guys. You have to trust me on this one. Because this story is awesome.
From Us Weekly:
The American Idol diva arranged an eight-hour rub-down while she got shut-eye at her L.A. mansion September 29.
“The masseuse made $1,500,” a source tells Us Weekly. On top of that, Carey had a seriously kooky request.
“She insisted [Sacha Baron Cohen's] Bruno play on repeat,” the insider adds. “It looped the entire time!”
This is what rich people do. They get massages for eight hours while watching Bruno over and over and napping. I’m having trouble even comprehending that. I thought about getting a massage one time, but then I figured I’d probably just pay my water bill or whatever. Or go shopping. Because no joke, I think I’m developing a moderate addiction to shopping. The other day I was out and I just bought two pairs of jeans on a whim, and when I got home I was like “I don’t even like these,” so I took them back and got different clothes. And then last week I got some whey protein because I’ve been getting into fitness and all, and I made a drink and it was so gross and I felt sick, so I asked my boyfriend if it had any sort of dairy in it (I’m lactose intolerant), and he just looked at me and I was like “oh, right.”
Did I just get incredibly off topic? It’s because Mariah Carey’s massage just completely blew my mind.
