Mariah Carey wants Nas to set her up on a date

Mariah Carey has only been separated from Nick Cannon for a few months now (that we know of), but she’s already ready to move on – makes sense, especially if her hints about his cheating ways are at all true. So how will she find her next partner/short-term fling? Well, she’s hoping Nas will help her!

From US Weekly:

The pop diva “texted Nas, wondering if he had any friends she could go out with — or even just hook up with,” the insider says. “But Nas is nervous to introduce her to anyone.”

Carey and the hip-hop star have been friends for years, and even collaborated on the song “Dedicated,” the third track on her not-so-successful 2014 album Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse. Rumors swirled in 2013 that the two were getting a little too close, but Cannon himself shut them down during an interview with Howard Stern earlier this year.

“[Nas is] a friend of mine, he’s a friend of hers,” the America’s Got Talent host said in April, pre-split. “She went to his birthday party, and I think it was in L.A. We actually talked about this before. It’d be very difficult to make me jealous.”

No one cares, Nick Cannon. It’s good that you were secure in your marriage while it was happening – but then if you were the one being unfaithful, I suppose you would be.

In any case, you wouldn’t think Mariah would need help meeting someone new, but asking Nas is so random. Whatever – get yours, girl!

Listen to This: Amy Winehouse’s New Single, ‘Cherry Wine’

Oh Amy.

I could do without all the Nas, though he’s probably one of the best rappers in the game today (which isn’t saying a whole lot anyway, when you have people like TYGA or whatever out there)

From the Huff Po:

Nas’ collaboration with the late Amy Winehouse has finally surfaced. The track, “Cherry Wine,” premiered on BBC’s Radio 1 on Tuesday night.

Produced by Salaam Remi, “Cherry Wine” will appear on the rapper’s tenth studio album, Life is Good, which is slated for a July 17th release. Nas and Winehouse previously collaborated on “Like Smoke,” which appeared on Winehouse’s posthumous album Lioness: Hidden Treasures.

I don’t know, guys. I love Amy and I miss her and there’s still a big old empty spot in my heart where a live, thriving Amy would normally fit (if she were, you know, still live and thriving), and I still have to say it—maybe if girl had laid off the ‘smoke’ and ‘wine’ a little bit more and focused on cranking out beautiful music like she used to be so good at doing, she might be here with us today, celebrating ‘Cherry Wine’ in July of 2012.

As it were, she’s not, and we only have things like ‘smoke’ and like ‘wine’ to blame. And, you know, the obvious addiction to both.

RIP Amy. Good to see that your music is still living on though you’re not.

Quotables: Nas is An Idiot

“I would slap the s*** out of somebody for Gwyneth Paltrow. She’s the homie, she’s cool. Gwyneth gets a pass. Real people get a pass. We know what this s*** is. We don’t interrupt Italians when they say ‘Wop’ to each other. They gonna punch you in the mouth if you interrupt that. Don’t interrupt us. We pick and choose. … Some might not feel the same way. Some of us will get angrier about it than others; but some people get a pass. The people that I know who are cool and real n****s, Gwyneth Paltrow is a real n****, that’s my homie. That’s how I’m on it. Some people get a pass.”

So is that how this all is? Because I’m afraid I just don’t get it. Here’s a quick suggestion: how about we ALL stop saying the offending word (people of all races), and be done with it? Then no one feels insulted, excluded, faked out, shit on, oppressed, or revered. Will that work for everyone?

Whatever. Nas is a pretentious idiot anyway.

Having Your Celebrity Friendship Dreams Realized Feels So Good

Oh, damn. Look at this friendship.

Nas and Amy Winehouse were photographed leaving a Japanese restaurant in London last night. I wonder what their conversation was all about. I be he was like, “Imagine smoking weed in the streets without cops harassing/Imagine going to court with no trial/Lifestyle cruising blue behind my waters/No welfare supporters more conscious of the way we raise our daughters” and she was all, “BLLLAAAAAAAKKKKKEEEEEEE.” I bet it was something like that. I hope they’re working together.

Does Anyone Else Think Kelis is Kanye in Disguise?

‘Cause as far as I’m concerned, the two look a little more alike than can even be biologically possible, minus the facial hair, natch.

Kelis, if you’re unfamiliar with her, hit the hip hop/R&B music genre in 2003 with her ear-catching, annoying-ass single “Milkshake”.  She had the typical rise-to-fame scenario; married Nas in 2005, both divorced Nas in 2009 and became his baby mama, and sucked Nas dry via child support just in the past few months.

Kelis releases her latest album, FleshTones, on May 1st and her newest single, “Acapella” has just dropped.

What do you guys think of the new single? Myself, I dunno … It’s kinda 90s dance meets Sade meets … well, Kanye, at least in the looks department, anyway. I don’t think I’ll be hurrying on out April 30th at midnight to reserve my copy or anything.

“I think Jesse Jackson, he’s the biggest player hater. His time is up. All you old niggas, time is up. We heard your voice, we saw your marching, we heard your sermons. We don’t wanna hear that shit no more. It’s a new day. It’s a new voice. I’m here now. We don’t need Jesse; I’m here. I got this. We got Barack, we got David Banners and Young Jeezys. We’re the voice now. It’s no more Jesse. Sorry. Goodbye. You ain’t helping nobody in the ‘hood. That’s the bottom line. Goodbye, Jesse. Bye!”
