Mariah Carey seems to be losing her voice

mariah carey

Mariah Carey is an absolute legend with a voice that is known and loved around the world. That’s why it absolutely pains me to hear things like her performance at a concert in Japan this weekend. I don’t know if she’s just ill or maybe overly stressed or something, but it was… not good, and that’s an understatement. In fact, it was downright painful to watch.

During ‘Always Be My Baby’, those high notes she’s known for just weren’t coming, and she’s been absolutely panned online ever since. I feel sorta bad for Mariah – she’s trying to hold onto what she once had, but if her voice is starting to go, homegirl needs to retire on a high note and let us remember the good times, because this just isn’t right. She forgot the words to some songs (or so it seemed), the mic stand broke… it was just all around disastrous.

Michael Phelps is a bit of a fuck up, and he knows it. After getting arrested and charged with a DUI, someone’s given him some home truths and now he’s checking himself into rehab to get some help for his issues. Instead of doing this quietly, he decided to announce it on Twitter, as you do. As usual, read from bottom to top:

Amanda Bynes Hits NYC Acting Strangely

amanda-bynes

Poor Amanda Bynes. It looks like this is just the beginning of a whole new downfall. The actress was spotted in NYC with a huge bandage on her face (above), and was acting strangely. Here’s what TMZ is reporting:

Amanda Bynes puffed a Camel cigarette on the streets of NYC Friday evening … then rolled into the Cartier store wearing sweatpants … and the situation continues to be desperate with no happy resolution.

Bynes — sporting a bandage under her eye — walked around the Upper East Side Friday before hitting up the fancy jewelry store.

Doesn’t look like she bought anything … as she left the store, undercover.

We spoke with multiple people who saw Amanda in Union Square last night as well … and they say she seemed very paranoid. They also tells us she was speaking to inanimate objects like a tree.

Damn. :( This is not good. I think what upsets me the most is the report that she was talking to a tree. Anything else, the bandage on her face, the shopping, that’s all whatever — it can be summed up as no big deal, but talking to trees seems like kind of a big deal, honestly.

I guess no one can help her unless she poses a threat to her safety or the safety of others, and it’s a shame it has to come to that point. I really, really hope this works out for the best, but to be honest, I just don’t see that happening. Do you guys?

George Clooney’s Wedding Cost HOW Much?

George+Clooney+Amal+Alamuddin

George Clooney got married in Italy and thanks to an exclusive with People magazine, we now know how much the whole thing cost. Personally, I think it’s kind of staggering and ridiculous, but the number could be worse. And what is that number? According to People,

At the end of the day, George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin‘s three-day wedding weekend, including their intimate Sept. 27 ceremony at the Aman Canal Grande resort, cost about $1.6 million, or a million British pounds, PEOPLE has learned.

Um, is that not a huge yikes to anyone else? $1.6 million? For a wedding? Look, it’s their money and they can do whatever they want with it, but that doesn’t mean I’m not allowed to be shocked. How naive am I, to be shocked by something like this, right? I mean, what the hell did I think it was gonna cost, $200?

Anyway here’s some additional info about the costs:

Additional reports claiming Alamuddin’s family footed the bill for the wedding weekend – which included several fetes at the matrimonial home base, the Belmond Hotel Cipriani – are also inaccurate, PEOPLE has confirmed.

So who paid for it then? Was it all George? Both of them?

How much did YOUR wedding cost? Person with the cheapest wedding wins a prize — my total admiration.

Lady Gaga Answers Fan Questions On Reddit; Avoids Talking About R. Kelly

Lady+Gaga

Lady Gaga took to Reddit to do an AMA (“Ask Me Anything”). Titling the post, “I am Lady Gaga. AMAA. Let’s go Cheek To Cheek like I did with Tony Bennett on my number one album.” (gag me — or maybe gag-a me), Gaga was thrilled to answer all kinds of questions from her fans…except anything to do with R. Kelly and Terry Richardson.

The way Reddit works is you post something, and depending on how much people love or hate it, they vote the post up or down. The top most voted question in Lady Gaga’s AMA is currently unanswered by Gaga, and it is:

Just wondering why you would want to work with R Kelly who was accused dozens of times for sexual assault, and Terry Richardson who was also accused several times for sexual assault, for your (cancelled) music video, which some have seen as a literal ad for rape?

In the video you say “Will I ever walk again?” and R Kelly as the doctor says “Yes, if you let me do whatever I want with your body,” and “when you wake up you’ll be pregnant”. Then there are scenes with your “unconscious” body when R Kelly and the nurses are all climbing over you.

You say you’re an ambassador for youth, and you run a youth “charity”, so why would you do something like that, knowing millions of young girls worldwide are watching your every move?

Because it’s at the top, it means it’s the question people would most like her to address; Gaga hasn’t typed a single word about it. I’m disappointed, but not surprised. I’d really love to know her answer.

As for what she did answer: questions about her meat dress (it was made by a butcher and held together with “some fishing line”), what her guilty pleasure music is (Garth Brooks), and what her hobbies are (“healing, meditation, and helping to take care of those around me”), as well as cooking.

Woo freakin hoo.

Jennifer Hudson Hints At Another “Sex And The City” Sequel

jennifer+hudson

Jennifer Hudson went on a radio show and revealed that we may be in store for another Sex and the City movie. This would be the third film. The first wasn’t too terrible, the second one was abysmal (and pretty offensive), so I’m not exactly psyched for a third. Regardless, here’s what she told Dish Nation in Atlanta, via Daily Mail:

I think it might be [happening]. 

Somebody just came to me talking about that. So if it’s in the talks, it might happen. So look for it. Look for your girl, Louise from St. Louis!

In case you don’t remember, Ms. Hudson played Carrie Bradshaw‘s assistant, Louise from St. Louis who totally believed in the power of ~~love~~.

The Mail points out that the first film was a smash, with a box office of $415 million, but that the sequel got “dismal reviews” and earned $110 million less than the first film.

So we’re gonna ask ya…

Amy+Schumer

Here’s Amy Schumer showing up for Lena Dunham‘s book launch. I’m not wowed by this, although considering the event, it’s not like she had to wear a ball gown or anything fancy, so I guess it’s fine. “Whatever” sums up my feelings on this quite nicely.
