As reported yesterday American Idol is apparently negotiating with Nicki Minaj to replace Steven Tyler. The people who run American Idol obviously don’t know my Mimi. Here’s what I wrote in the original post yesterday - click here for a refresher - in response to the news: Did they even consult with Mimi? Never mind the actual show, how will they even get through the seating arrangement process? Does Mimi seem to you like she plays well with girls? Girls who are younger than she is? And mouthy ones who like to stunt as much as the Minaj? TMZ Full Story

Just in case you weren’t sure, although I can’t imagine why, when Mariah Carey’s American Idol debuts in January, it’s getting a lot of play here on this blog. We might even liveblog. I look forward to it more than I’m looking forward to Christmas, no lies. And now, perhaps even more. Full Story

Last week Lainey and I were talking about our anxiety dreams: mine always revolve around math class. And this is because I’m painfully, embarrassingly bad at math. It’s awful. When out for dinner with friends, they know to calculate my share and tip because it takes me too long. I’m from the Barbie “math class is tough!” generation. Full Story

Do you follow Joshua Malina on Twitter? (Click here for his account)  I don’t know why not, if you don’t.  He might be the single best “just like us” celeb on that whole thing.  Malina’s Twitter breaks down to about 65% tweets about how he’s aware his celebrity life is annoying and he is too privileged to talk, ever, 10% things his kids say that remind him he’s not cool, and 25% telling Chris Brown he’s a horrible person. Full Story

It’s the first day of Olympic withdrawal. How are you? I miss them. But, bless her, Mimi is here to help. With Dem Babies! First a photo of Moroccan with the caption: Me&Roc Starr taking a lil nap: ) And then it’s Monroe, I guess because the lambily demanded it: As per your request, me & ms. Full Story

First - Stella Tennant FOREVER. Second - I want to know what would have happened if they even tried suggesting to Kate Moss that she’d wear Victoria Beckham at the Closing Ceremony during the David Bowie Fashion tribute. Please. Victoria Beckham included among Alexander McQueen, Burberry, Vivienne Westwood, and others. Full Story

As you know, I’ve been obsessed this week with Jean Claude Van Damme on press tour for The Expendables 2. He’s been bringing it on every carpet. Here’s JCVD being JCVD in Paris. I wonder what his wife is really thinking. I also wonder if he split tests his pants before buying just to make sure they can accommodate his random kung fu kicks. Full Story

Victoria Beckham posted a photo of a tricked out mic on her Twitter a couple of weeks ago - click here for a refresher. I wrote that it was perhaps a sign that she’d finally agreed to perform with the other Spices at the Closing Ceremony. As previously reported, Posh had been cock-blocking the plan, not wanting to compromise her new Fashion Designer identity by reminding us that she originally arrived as a pop star. Full Story

JCVD is grateful

Look at me, I’m JCVD. That’s why he keeps kung fu-ing on the red carpet. And presumably why he’s doing the slap-the-ass dance with a metal sidewalk stanchion in Madrid...? I don’t know. I can’t explain. But I enjoy. In a can’t look away way, I really enjoy a man in all white spraying his legs all over a movie premiere, so grateful and appreciative that he gets to make the occasional movie now and again. Full Story

Sasha and I were emailing about this yesterday - it’s the same joy, though not quite as pronounced, that we get from Mariah Carey’s inability to walk, or her overuse of the word “bleak”, or when she complains about her twin pregnancy and what she had to endure... Such is Ryan Lochte’s dumbness. Full Story

Ryan Lochte wants Hollywood

Ryan Lochte was out last night in London. He seems to enjoy getting papped, non? A lot. After London 2012, I wonder how he’ll deal with not being followed and talked about constantly anymore. Look at Ryan Lochte. Ryan Lochte doesn’t want to fade away and live a private life. Ryan Lochte wants it bad. Full Story
